The first "twist" for the 8 new houseguests was that they would be joined by 3 Dynamic Duos from Big Brother's past seasons.The second twist is that the 8 original houseguests must pair up to make 4 teams of 2. A third twist was disclosed tonight as well. The HOH must nominate 1 duo making it neccessary for the teammates to campaign against each other to stay in the house. The houseguest that remains after the eviction will be given a golden key that gives them a free pass for the next 3 evictions guaranteeing them a spot in the top 10/jury.

The 8 houseguests teamed up as follows

Adam Poch & Dominic Briones

Keith Henderson & Porsche Briggs

Kalia Booker & Lawon Exum

Cassi Colvin & Shelly Moore

The HOH competition was held tonight and the teams had to hold on to a slippery giant banana. Rachel won ensuring her teammate Brendon's safety. Rachel made a deal to not put up Evel Dick and Daniele.

Great and informative article....thanks Rachel for posting

Thanks for your interesting article on season 13 for Big Brother.

I see one of the houseguests is from Centerville, Ohio. That's just outside of Dayton, Ohio. I'm familiar with the area as I've been to the Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson Air Force base. I may have to check this show out. Thanks for sharing.
