Tonight on Big Brother, we see Caleb Reynolds move into the Big Brother 16 house. Unlucky Caleb is the first Big Brother 16 houseguest to garner controversial headlines. Unfortunately, if last season is any indication, he won't be the one and only. Countless racial, homophobic, and misogynistic remarks made Big Brother 15 not-so-much fun. Are we headed down the same path for Big Brother 16? One peek at Caleb's social media accounts suggests we are, indeed, headed down the same path.
I know I'm not the only one who is counting down the days until Big Brother 16 begins. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Big Brother 16 cast, adding, "Big Brother to debut its MOST TWISTED season ever!"
Twist Number One: Two houseguests will win Head of Household each week. Each HoH will nominate two houseguests for eviction every week. For the first time ever, winning HoH will not guarantee safety for the week.
Twist Number Two: A new interactive element to the game, Team America, will give fans power to influence the game. Twist Number Three: A new competition, Battle of the Block, will dramatically shift the power in the house each week.
“When the houseguests learn about the new twists, they will need to throw out any pre-existing strategy if they want to survive in the game,” promisedAllison Grodner. “The new Battle of the Block competition will shake up the power in the house like never before – a houseguest can go from zero to hero – or vice versa – every week!"
