On tonight's episode of BIG BROTHER, host Julie Chen announced the next big twist of the summer, in which the first five evicted Houseguests will have a shot at returning to the game by competing in the first-ever "Battle Back" competition.
There will be four battles in all, with the last Houseguest standing returning to the game for another shot at the $500,000 prize. Round one will feature a showdown between the first evicted Houseguest, Glenn Garcia, and tonight's evictee, Jozea. The winner of Round One will advance and challenge next week's third evicted Houseguest, and so on. All four "Battle Back" competitions and the reveal of the winner, will air exclusively during a special episode of BIG BROTHER, Friday, July 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
BIG BROTHER airs Sundays and Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT); and Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT), featuring the live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen.
BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras - seven more than last year - and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000. BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.
