Big Brother 18: America’s Care Package First Winner! [UPDATE]

On Big Brother 18 tonight, host Julie Chen announced the latest in a long list of twists this season. This one is called “America’s Care Package” and will involve special advantages given to houseguests voted to receive them by the viewers. Yes, it’s all very Hunger Games.


The first Big Brother America’s Care Package is a nice, but not that exciting prize for the houseguest who wins it. They will be receive a “Never-Not Pass” and be immune from being a Have-Not for the rest of the season. So no more slop sapping their strength or horrible bumper car beds messing up their backs, arms, legs, and every other body part.

From there, however, the prizes get much better every week. So if you are voting for your favorite to receive an America’s Care Package, you might want to hold off. Because once a houseguest wins one, they cannot win another one. So you’ll want to save your votes to hopefully make sure your favorite player gets one of the really good ones later on. Everyone can survive on slop and in terrible beds, having an actual power to make serious impact on the game is far more important!

Here’s the breakdown on each of the America’s Care Package prizes:


Week 1: Never Not Pass – The winner of this care package cannot be named a Have Not for the rest of the season. So long slop!

WINNER ANNOUNCED: Natalie Negrotti!


Week 2: Eliminate Two Eviction Votes – The winner of this care package could single-handedly flip the house by preventing two Houseguests of their choosing from voting in this week’s eviction.

Week 3: Super Safety – The good news is, the holder of this care package will be safe for the week. The bad news is, this Houseguest must also wear a “Super Safety” costume all week long.

Week 4: Co-HOH – This winner automatically becomes Co-HoH, sharing all HoH perks and responsibilities for the duration of the week, including safety and choosing one of the two nominees.

Week 5: BB Bribe – The winner gets $5k to bribe one Houseguest! Bribes may influence voting, competitions, vetoes or nominations. The bribe can only be given to one Houseguest, for one action, within the week leading up to the next eviction.

Voting has already begun on for the winner of this week’s Big Brother America’s Care Package, so get those votes in now!
