Gwyndalynn Kent

For people who don’t know what Big Brother is, it is a show in which about twelve people enter a house for a certain amount of days. There are different challenges that they face set up to determine the Head of Household and the Power of Veto.

The Head of Household Competition determines who will be in charge of most everything around the house including the elimination. Each week there will be an HOH (Head of Household) Competition in which everyone competes to win except the most recent HOH. The winner of this competition will be given a key that unlocks a master bedroom and gives them the power to put two people up for elimination.

Just a few days later, just before the elimination ceremony, they hold another competition game called the POV or Power of Veto. Right before this competition, six people get chosen to compete, the two nominees, the HOH, and three other people that are randomly chosen. The winner of the Power of Veto gets the power to take one of the nominees off and the HOH has to choose a new nominee. The only twist is that they don’t have to use it if they don’t want to. More…
