The first episode of Big Brother 18 is over and we’re here to recap the important parts for you in case you missed any of it or want to be reminded later! Many things happened the first night, including twists and multiple competitions!
The night was kicked off with the introduction of each of the new houseguests, just like every years premiere has. The second part of the premiere is tomorrow, which is going to be like any premiere we have had in the last 3 years!
Once the houseguests started to get to know each other, Julie called them all back into the living room to tell them about the first of three major twists. Julie explained to them that while they have been getting settled, there were four other houseguests hidden within the house. The four other houseguests are all returnees from previous seasons. Frank from BB14, Nicole from BB16, James from BB17, and Da’Vonne who is also from BB17.
Paul, Victor, Zakiyah, and Jozea immediately took exception, talking with each other about how the returnees have already had their turn and need to be the first to go. Each of the returnees knew they were going to be targeted, so they agreed to stick together when they can. After the returnees and new houseguests introduced themselves, Julie was ready to announce the second major twist. There will be teams.
All the houseguests were brought out to the backyard where the first competition of the summer awaited them. Each returnee was told they weren’t allowed to be on the same team and would each be picking the first new houseguest that would join them. The teams ended up like this:
- “Category Four” – Frank, Michelle, Paulie, and Bridgette
- “The Freakazoids” – Nicole, Corey, Tiffany, and Glenn
- “Big Sister” – Da’Vonne, Paul, Zakiyah, and Jozea
- “Team Unicorn” – James, Natalie, Victor, and Bronte
Each team would have to sit atop a rocket as it rocked back and forth and liquids were sprayed on them. The first team to fall off would be have-nots, the second team to fall off would receive a mystery punishment, the third team to fall off would split $10,000, and the last team would be safe for two evictions. Members from each team could fall off, as long as one member was left on the rocket.
Big Sister were the first to fall off, making them the first have-nots of the summer. Category Four fell off second, making them to be the team that’ll receive a mystery punishment. The Freakazoids fell off third, making them the team that’ll split $10,000. The last team to fall off and earn safety for two weeks was Team Unicorn. Victor managed to hang on after each other member fell off.
Panic ensued among the teams who didn’t earn safety. Big Sister had a private chat in the bedroom about keeping each other safe, though after Da’Vonne left, Paul, Zakiyah, and Jozea all agreed that they wouldn’t keep her safe, and she’ll be one of the first to go.
Afterwards the next competition for all the teams that had lost was announced. The teams to win round one and round two would be safe from eviction this week, while the team that lost all the competitions would have to compete against each other and the loser of that competition would be sent home before the summer even started!
Category Four won the first round, followed by Big Sister winning the second round. The Freakazoids will be forced to compete against each other, the loser being sent home and the winner being the first Head of Household of the summer!
