Battle of the block was absolutely horrible. It had a negative effect on the 2 seasons (BB16, BB17) it infected. For some strange reason during Season 17 CBS called it a fan favorite. C’mon, did any fans like it? A recent interview with executive producer Rich Meechen confirms there will be no Battle of the Block this season. Boooo it was a fan favorite. Sarcasm aside this is great news, coupled with what appears to be a strong cast it’s looking good.
However… Allison Grodger says there’s a new competition coming into play on Sundays. New competitions probably means a game mechanic change. This is terrifying, maybe we’ll be missing The Battle of the block after all.
Hollywood Reporter got some answers after joining executive producers, Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, for a private house tour. And they didn’t hold back.
Will “Battle of the Block” be returning? “No battle of the block!” quips Meehan. Adds Grodner, “A new Sunday competition is coming into play. . .
In case you forget how the BOTB works.
There was two Heads of Households. Each one nominated 2 houseguests for a total of 4 players nominated. The 2 pairs then compete in a competition called “Battle of the Block”. The pair that wins are removed from the block and are safe from nomination for the remainder of the week. Even if the POV is played they cannot be nominated. The HOH that nominated them is “Dethroned” and is now eligible for nomination if the Power of Veto is played.
Sounds great but it’s not :( resulted in the HOH’s always working together giving us nice predictable weeks..
