Garden of temptation.

The first Twist of the season has Houseguests being tempted with money on, “Big Brother Garden of Temptation”. Photo: Sonja Flemming/CBS ©2017 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Each houseguest has a button in their hand, first to push button the flower turns green wins $25k…but wait, they also unleash a “twist” upon the house. The houseguest that pushes the button first will remain anonymous.

Kevin takes the first temptation and wins the $25k.

The twist has two consequences, one personal and one for the entire house. The personal consequence for Kevin’s win is that he can not win the first HOH competition.

Ding dong. #YourBoyIsBack …and I am no longer happy about having a house full of newbies because Big Brother just can’t help themselves, they have to screw the game up and add a returnee… #sigh Don’t get me wrong I like Paul, I enjoyed him on his season, but seriously Big Brother, why, oh why can’t you just trust this new cast to make a good season on their own.

Paul is back.. “which one of you bit the apple and unleashed the snake”.

Alex, Ramses, Jillian and Megan gather upstairs, they discuss Paul being back in the house. #Oddballs They don’t want to label themselves as an alliance just yet, just a group who will strategize together.


Paul will be swapping places with one of the new houseguests in the first ever #BBSwap [ps. I hate this, someone’s getting Jodi’ed]. Paul has been given 8 #Friendship bracelets to pass out to his chosen houseguests, the rest will compete for safety.

Houseguests are suppose to “tempt” Paul for safety aka friendship bracelet.

Paul gives a friendship bracelet to Kevin, Raven, Domonique, Mark, Jason, Jessica, Ramses, and Elena.



Cody, Matt, Megan, Alex, Josh, Cameron, Jillian and Christmas compete for safety. If you fall off your trapeze you will choose an apple from one of the serpents, 4 are good apples, safety, 3 are poisoned apples which will send them to the block.

  • Jillian is the first to fall, she chooses her apple
  • Megan falls
  • Josh jumps down after Julie gives a hint that one of the yellow apples is safety
  • Cameron jumps off and forgets all the hints Julie gave
  • Christmas jumps after Julie gives another hint, but she chooses the other yellow apple, oops she wasn’t listening to the clues very closely
  • Matt is down
  • Alex falls
  • Cody wins safety for the night

They open their apples, Alex is safe, Matt is safe, Christmas has poisoned apple, Cameron has poisoned apple, Josh is safe, Megan is safe, Jillian’s apple is poison.

Christmas, Cameron and Jillian are on the block.


Christmas, Cameron and Jillian must decided whether they would like an eviction vote or eviction competition.

  • Jillian chooses vote because she doesn’t believe she can beat Christmas.
  • Cameron wants a completion.
  • Christmas wants to compete but chooses a vote to see where she stands with the other houseguests.

By a vote of 8 votes to evict Cameron, 3 votes to evict Jillian, and 2 votes to evict Christmas. Cameron is evicted from the Big Brother house, swapping places with Paul.
