Last night, Big Brother 19 host Julie Chen announced that each week America gets to tempt houseguests with possible prizes. These prizes will generally relate to power, safety, and money. During the two hour Big Brother 2017 premiere, she announced the first one: The Pendant of Protection.
The Pendant of Protection grants one Big Brother 19 houseguest safety for three weeks. Julie also mentioned that with each prize comes a punishment. Big Brother fans had until today at 12:00 PM PT to vote on who they wanted to receive this power. Once a player receives a power, they cannot go back to the Den of Temptation. A player also can refuse their offer.
The winning houseguest will be tempted with the Ring of Replacement, which will give them the power to play in any Veto Competition they want this summer! If they’re not one of the six houseguests playing, they can swap places with one of the three players chosen by random draw. The Ring of Replacement can only be used once, but remember, every temptation comes with a consequence.
The next power is called the Halting Hex. It works like this:
The winning houseguest will be tempted with the Halting Hex! Whether on the block or not, they can halt any one of the next four evictions during the live show, making it a non-eviction night. But remember, every temptation comes with a consequence.
The Ring of Replacement and the Halting Hex can extremely alter the game. The Ring of Replacement can easily save a player from being backdoored. It can also ensure someone has no chance to fight for their safety.
The Halting Hex can completely give someone another life in the game. We wonder what punishments could be in store for the Big Brother 19 houseguests with such extremely powerful rewards. It will be an interesting Big Brother summer for sure.
