America won't just be deciding the winner of Big Brother: Over the Top this fall.
Big Brother: Over the Top is set to feature the most America involvement since the show's inaugural season. Host Julie Chen has already announced that there will be no jury and that America will decide the winner, but now apparently America will control even more of the season.
Along with the cast release for Big Brother: Over the Top, CBS has revealed that fans will be able to impact "nominations, evictions and more game-changing twists." The press release clarifies that "more details on the twists and the BIG BROTHER: OVER THE TOP house will be revealed during the first week of BIG BROTHER: OVER THE TOP on CBS All Access."
Big Brother: Over the Top is set to feature an all-new Safety Ceremony spread out over Saturday and Sunday, so it's possible that America will get to vote on houseguests to save each week. Of course, there's an HOH competition every week so it's likely that the winner will still be able to make final nominations, but the HOH winner may have to adapt to America's vote. There's also no word yet on how America will get to impact the evictions.
America has already been voting on the final houseguest to enter the Big Brother house. In addition to the 12 new houseguests set to enter the house on Wednesday, fans have been voting all week on either Jozea Flores of Big Brother 18 or Jason Roy of Big Brother 17 to enter and play alongside these newbies.
Either way, though, there will be a gender disparity as the houseguests start the game. There are seven female houseguests in the mix, and only five male newbies, with Jason or Jozea being the sixth male. It's very possible that we could see both Jason and Jozea in the house to even it out, though this has not been confirmed by CBS.
Big Brother: Over the Top begins Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on CBS All Access.
