As a result of moving the live eviction show from a regular Thursday time slot to a supersized Sunday show, Big Brother packed the two-hour special show with twists, surprises, and a painfully lopsided eviction. Who ended up getting sent packing? Scroll down to find out what's in store. Otherwise, here's how Sunday's show went. Since day one, the house seemed to turn against Taylor Hale immediately, largely because Paloma Aguilar's manipulations were at play.
Taylor ended up on the chopping block alongside Terrance Higgins, and on the day of reckoning, the houseguests learned some shocking news: Paloma had decided to self-evict. As a result, Big Brother had to abandon one of the big twits he had planned, and Taylor and Terrance both got out of jail for free. Jasmine Davis won the Head Of Household Competition after that fiasco and became the new HOH.
As Taylor's life was on the line, Jasmine stuck with him. Joe "Pooch" Pucciarelli then volunteered to be a pawn because he was sure he had a good relationship with everyone in the house, and he could easily get Taylor out. Big Brother has a well-known rule: never volunteer to be a pawn, because the pawn goes home.
Again, this adage proved true, and the show made no secret of it. In the diary room, nearly everyone confessed that Pooch was the only logical choice. The whole time, Pooch was blissfully unaware of his impending doom
In his first appeal speech of the season, Pooch got teary as he told the other houseguests how much he liked them. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Taylor, who had support from several different groups and a loose alliance, was not worried, but she still gave her appeal speech some heart. All of us, except Pooch, knew going in that she wouldn't be sent home, so it didn't matter. The pooch was eventually kicked out of the house by a landslide of 12-0, making you feel bad as a viewer. The pooch was shocked by the vote but still took it in stride.
He sat down with host Julie Chen Moonves for his exit interview after bidding farewell to his former housemates, admitting he found it "shocking that they were all on the same page."Pooch said that he volunteered to be a pawn in the vote because he hoped to gain favor with the other houseguests through his strong social game and athletic abilities. Julie called all the remaining contestants back into the conference room to reveal the night's biggest surprise -- a "game-changing" twist that changes everyone's plans and the game in a significant way: The Bestie Twist.
Most alliances will be altered by the houseguests being paired up for the remainder of the season. There's more to come, however. If someone wins HOH, their bestie is automatically safe for the week. HOHs must also nominate one pair of besties instead of any two houseguests. One of the two besties will go home, leaving the other playing alone. Future Veto Competitions will also feature the pairs competing together. There is no doubt that this threw the houseguests for a loop.
Likewise, the first HOH competition -- which was essentially a musical chairs match -- came too fast for anyone to comprehend. In the lavish HOH room, fans saw Turner break down in tears over the messages he received from his loved ones, and the alliances and friendships began to strain under the unexpected pressure of the bestie twist. Fans then got to see who would be evicted next when Turner revealed Michael Bruner and Brittany Hoopes as his friend nominees: Bruner has already won two Veto competitions, while Hoopes has won one.
