With the 2010’s in the rear-view mirror, we decided to take a look back at every season of Big Brother from the previous decade. In our look back, we decided to rank the 6 most shocking twists of the decade.
With the 2010’s now over, we decided to reflect on every season of Big Brother that took place last decade. There have been many twists over the course of the decade. So, we decided to rank the 6 most shocking twists of the 2010’s. This will include both the Celebrity and Over the Top versions of Big Brother.
Now, these twists do not have to have originated in the 2010’s nor been effective. They just have to have shock value. Number 4 is The Battle of the Block from Big Brother 16 and 17.
No. 4: The Battle of the Block
The Battle of The Block debuted in Big Brother 16 as a twist that promise to get rid of floaters. However, it really had the exact opposite effect in the end. Fans ended up hating twist by the end of the season. However, Battle of the Block returned for Big Brother 17, with production claiming it was a fan favorite.
Here is how the twist worked: there would be 2 separate Head of Household Competitions and 2 people would be HOH. The 2 HOHs each nominated 2 houseguests for eviction. The 2 sets of nominees would then square off in the Battle of the Block Competition.
The winning team of nominees would be safe for the week and dethrone the HOH who nominated them. The dethroned HOH would have no further safety for the week. After the Battle of the Block Competition, the rest of the week would proceed as normal.
The shock value here was in the possibility of a houseguest going from being HOH to being evicted in the course of the same week. However, in 2 seasons of the Battle of the Block twist, this only happened once. It occurred in week 7 of Big Brother 16 when Nicole Franzel went from being HOH to being evicted.
Which twist comes in at No. 3? Stay tuned to find out!
