Big Brother 15 Spoilers MVP TWIST No Floaters Allowed and Three Nominees


CBS Interactive Inc.

CBS released two twists this morning for the upcoming Big Brother 15 season. Their explanations of the twists are not 100% but give us enough information to give us the idea of what they have planned. In case you missed it yesterday they released house pictures and with this mornings press release we find out that the live audience portion of the set has been revamped. New high-gloss stage, a lighted runway and a massive 103 inch plasma screen.


As rumoured there will be 3 nominees this year “instead of two Houseguests being nominated each week for eviction, as in past seasons, contestants will nominate three in this summer’s edition.”

Twist Two

The Big Brother viewers will vote for the “Big Brother MVP” before the Houseguests even enter the game beginning with a pre-premiere vote starting Thursday, June 20 vote here .
“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies. With America rewarding good game play, it doesn’t pay to be a floater this summer,” The Houseguest who receives the most votes will be anointed that week’s, “Big Brother MVP.” The full scope of the MVP’s secret power will be revealed during the season première.

UPDATED – The fine print of the MVP Power states:
“Big Brother and Vote Description: During the Voting Period, the Big Brother audience will be asked to interact with the show by voting to choose the houseguest they believe has the best strategy to win as they enter the Big Brother House and therefore should be selected the BB MVP for the first week of the competition. The BB MVP is a new twist of the game that grants the BB MVP a new power to use during that week of the competition.


What do you think of this twist?

Essentially production now can save one person a week at least now they won’t have to use a Pandora’s’ Box to do it :) I’m still thinking that it doesn’t matter what the house looks like or the silly twists they toss into the game it’s still about the cast which hopefully we’ll see later today or tomorrow.

If you haven’t heard there is a lot of chatter going on about Rachel’s sister being on the Big Brother 15. What is your take on this rumor?

Press release information

BIG BROTHER Returns with a Stylish Mid-Century Modern Chic Design and a New “Live Show” Set

BIG BROTHER will unleash two new twists into the stylish, redesigned house this summer that will influence the strategic landscape of the game when it premieres on Wednesday, June 26 (8:00-9:00PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Julie Chen is the host.

The first twist is a series’ first: instead of two Houseguests being nominated each week for eviction, as in past seasons, contestants will nominate three in this summer’s edition. This process will be further explained during the season premiere.

The second twist will allow BIG BROTHER viewers to play a crucial role in the game by casting votes for the Houseguest they feel is playing the best game. The Houseguest who receives the most votes will be anointed that week’s, “Big Brother MVP.” The full scope of the MVP’s secret power will be revealed during the season premiere.

America will start casting their votes for this season’s first “Big Brother MVP” before the Houseguests even enter the game, beginning with a pre-premiere vote starting Thursday, June 20, following CBS’s cast announcement of the new Houseguests. Fans can visit to cast their vote.

“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies. With America rewarding good game play, it doesn’t pay to be a floater this summer,” said Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, Executive Producers of BIG BROTHER.

The Head of Household suite is entirely black and white, including an aquarium of Koi flown in from Asia to bring good fortune.

The mid-century style of the BIG BROTHER house continues on host Julie Chen’s newly remodeled set. The multi-story front of the house features a new high-gloss stage, a lighted runway and a massive 103 inch plasma screen, as well as several other screens, for Julie to monitor and communicate with the Houseguests.

And so how will they keep the MVP vote from being just another popularity contest?


Exactly.. America will vote on personality not game play.
It would be OK if the MVP was a one time thing, but every week. Total bull shit.


So the first MVP vote is right after the cast announcement.
How will we determine who is playing the be best game if we have not seen their game play yet.
Amen again to the popularity contest comment.

I don’t like the sound of this. It doesn’t seem to me like this MVP thing will discourage floaters. It seems to me like it will discourage being mean to each other. We’ll have a cast full of people who want to appear to be nice for the sake of America’s vote.


Don’t worry I’m sure they’ll abandon the twist week 5 like usual big brother us fashion if it doesn’t work…no need to have an opinion.


MVP twist even hurt. Beside if MVP twist will work, I’m sure it will.


I expect the MVP twist to bomb hard, because you know America will just end up voting for their favorite person every week, instead of the person that plays the best game, who will most likely not be the nicest person. The three nominees could be interesting. I want to see the cast, and whether or not the familiar face rumor is true.


Any word about what time tomorrow the cast is going to be announced?


I hear it’s 12pm pacific and 3pm eastern

I just read this season the show will be airing Tues, Wed and Sat. with live eviction on Wed. Not happy about the Sat. night.


No, it will be Tues, Wed, and Sunday.

It will be broadcast three nights weekly: Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, beginning July 2); a live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen on Wednesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT, beginning July 3); and Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT, beginning June 30). The Wednesday live eviction show will move to 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT on July 17.


I’m not a huge fan of this MVP twist, but after seeing her pictures, I’m definitely a huge fan of Rachel’s sister entering the game!

Rumor is the game plays normal. But the third nominee is chosen by the MVP.


knowing production, they’ll rig it so we have a frank or rachel character safe/mvp every week.


Maybe they should have just got the public to choose a panel of the best BB game players. Then this panel could have taken a weekly vote on who they considered was playing the best game. They could have included a separate segment of the program where the BB panel are shown making the decision – casting their votes etc.


3 nominees: I really do like it, it causes more strategy, more alliance, more begging, and definitely more lying
MVP: I want to see how much power the MVP gets before making my judgement. I don’t hate it at first glance though.


a few thoughts and possible scenarios…

i predicted the 3 nom scenario, but i dont like the changes…uk bb has 3 noms, but i prefer the usa system of 2 noms(solely decided by HOH, not public or entire house vote)…then the house other than HOH and 2 nominated voting(HOH has deciding vote if there is a tied vote)

with 16 house guests, the first vote/eviction will have 1 HOH and 3 nominated, so 12 voting…could be various splits like 6-6-0 or 5-5-2 or 4-4-4, which would give the deciding vote to the HOH

so for final 5 if the HOH doesnt win veto, then the other 3 are nominated, and veto winner has the only vote…for final 4, no veto since there has to be 3 noms? or would there be a veto but just 2 noms like normally happens?

in terms of mvp power every week…there are too many scenaros possible to try to make a guess as to what will be involved


Is it really hard to find 16 people with ZERO affiliation to CBS .. I was hoping for 16 hardcore fans that made it on the show b/c they either went to a casting call or made a video online .. Instead the cast will be filled with wannabe models or sisters & wives of ex houseguests


I am sorry but I have no interest in watching Rachel’s sister in the BB house. She has been seeking attention since Rachel appeared on the show. I love Rachel and Brendan but don’t want to see any of the HG family members.

The MVP thing is amazing! There are millions of people that watch this show, so really you can’t vote for favorites, cause everyone will have a different favorite. Keep that in mind, instead of knocking down something that is new, give it a chance, you never know this could be the start of something new(:


The triple nomination twist sounds pretty good and original but the MVP twist just sucks


Yes!!! I am so glad to see that it is not something that you chose to do. I have been a huge fan of your site for YEARS now and regardless of what I feel about politics personally, I found it incredibly odd that you guys would have these ‘impeach Obama” and “join forces with Ron Paul” ads running all over your site this year. Thanks for doing something about them! Looking forward to a great Bb season!


It’s kinda lame how production is trying to convince the viewers that they’ve been given a certain power to vote on an MVP when it’s just their way of saving their favorites without having to hound people in the DR into voting the way they want them to vote. I’m willing to bet a penny that the winner of the MVP award won’t be announced until just before votes are cast to evict and if one of production’s favorites is in jeopardy they will be the MVP winner and will be automatically taken off the block. I’m probably 100% wrong, but I just felt like complaining.

I was just getting ready to say what “Name” said….does anybody really believe these are gonna be “America’s vote” for MVP? With 3 noms AND an MVP, production has pretty much locked down who THEY want in the house as the game goes on….and what’s with all these ex’s or family of former HG’s? Isn’t that kinda the watered down version of returning players? Do they even pick ANYONE from casting calls anymore?


Funny Post “Name” haha

I don’t mind production fixing the game because they typically like who I always like so I can live with that. #popularitycontest

Would rather have America’s Player back in the game than this MVP twist.. Yawn at the idea of Rachel’s sister as a houseguest. I saw her on Brendon/Rachel’s wedding show, she’s a bigger annoying flake than Rachel.

SIMON or DAWG, I’m having a hard time getting you guys on the mobile. I have an Android and everything is blue and I can’t see the articles


SIMON and DAWG, Just signed up for the Live Feeds!! Can’t wait


Just let them play good ole’ fashion BB.

Beyonce for BB

I love the 3noms the MVP not so sure what if the same person gets MVP week afther week? I hope the MVP puts one of the 3noms up and win some money and that’s it I hope they don’t get saved.


with 3 nominated every week it now means there is a possibility of a tied vote every week, whether there are an even or odd amount of people voting, so the HOH getting the deciding tiebreaker vote is possible every week(apart from final 5 and final 4 where there is only maximum one person voting), whereas in the past with only 2 nominated, the tied vote was only possible every second week when there was an even amount of people voting…and now every third week there is also the possibility of a 3 way tie in four different weeks when there are 16 house guests with 12 voting (4-4-4) or 13 house guests with 9 voting (3-3-3) or 10 house guests with 6 voting (2-2-2) or 7 house guests with 3 voting (1-1-1)

with 3 nominated instead of 2, there will be even more campaigning…and the possibility of all 3 nominees campaigning against each other, or even 2 nominees working together to campaign against the 3rd nominee…so being HOH will come with way more stress

i hope there is a limit to the amount of times a house guest gets to be the mvp – maybe a maximum of once until the point where the only remaining house guests have all been mvp once and then at that point remaining house guests get the chance to be mvp for a second time, so that most of the house guests get a decent shot at it, otherwise we could see the same 2 or 3 people on rotation as mvp every week…it will be interesting to see what the power is – it may have to do with votes or influencing votes, the veto comp and veto players picked, the ability to decide one of the noms, influence on the haves/have nots picked, or secret tasks, or possibly becoming americas player for that particular week with maybe safety guarenteed for the following week or prizes/rewards/luxuries if certain goals are achieved…there are so many scenarios possible

in terms of veto comp players there will now be the HOH and 3 nominees…so if there is still going to be 6 veto comp players, to choose the extra 2 players, perhaps one of the players may be the mvp, with only one chosen by random draw by the HOH(or 2 by random draw if mvp is also HOH or a nominee)? or if they go to 8 players in the veto comp, it would be the HOH and 3 nominees each playing plus each of those 4 choosing one player by random draw to make it 8

will be interesting to see how the changes alter the dynamics

Impeach Obama ad

3 nominations: I think its going to be interested; will cause more lying, backstabbing,, begging and entertainment as someone mentioned above, which leest face it is the reason we watch BB

MVP: I’ll wait and see, I do hope that American will vote fairly and not emotionally or with the wrong body parts

ps: cant get rid of me that easy Simon!!!!


Rachel’s sister in the BB House? Not happy about hearing this. After I read this, I saw something on her Twitter page talking about taking a trip to Greece; she could be trying to throw us off.


CBS Needs to release the Cast already. I’m so Anxious!


OMG I am getting the shakes. cant wait


The Cast is out, videos are on the CBS site now


The Cast is finally up Simon.


Houseguest pics have been released on!


HELP: A friend of mine is without TV this season and is going to have to watch online – are there any websites that will stream the episodes as they happen so she doesn’t have to wait till the next day when they post episodes on the CBS website? Let me know! Thank you in advance :)

I hope this MVP thing doesn’t make it like Glass House. I love that they have twists, just want them to be original.
