Four former houseguests will return to coach the new twelve houseguests. At one point in the game the coaches have the option to either stay as coaches or return to play the game once again.
When the Coaches Twist ends then Pandora's Box will be optional to open by any houseguest. It could benefit them in the game or even cause them to be evicted from the Big Brother house. If no-one opens the box is could also have negative effects or positive effects on the house.
The scene opens up to Julie Chen who announces the start of a new and exciting summer. She reveals that a massive twist will majorly shake up the game for every single houseguest in the house. She leaves the public on a cliffhanger as she cuts to the new and improved house based on sport. She reveals that the theme of the house is totally relevant to the main twist of the season. After all the house tour is done, we are now shown twelve new houseguests finding their keys in situations they find themselves in, in their everyday lives.
The twelve houseguests enter the house and start building the foundations of some relationships. Before any of the houseguests can make any set-in-stone relationships, Julie calls the twelve new houseguests to the living room. She reveals that the house in set on the theme of sport and in sport you need a coach. The players gasp and cover their mouths in shock as they know what's coming. Julie reveals four former houseguests will return and act as coaches for the new players.
Before the coaches are revealed, Fraser and Andy both lead a revolt against the would-be coaches. Everyone agrees, but some houseguests are very sceptical, as the coaches are just acting as coaches and think the two men are a bit confused. The first coach to enter is the winner of BB6, Rey. The players are in awe of Rey as he enters the house, superfans, Weston and Lynn follow him everywhere he goes, annoying him a tad. The next coach to enter is Saffron from BB2, Saffron doesn't get much attention but she is welcomed into the house. The last two coaches, Leland and Bea enter the house together, and while everyone chats to Bea and basically worships her, Leland get no attention. Saffron and Leland who feel left out, form a deal to connect their future teams together somehow.
Everyone then goes into the backyard to find a challenge set up. Before the houseguests are instructed on how to do the challenge, Julie reveals that the coaches will now pick their teams. As Rey entered the house first he gets to pick first, once all the coaches have picked three houseguests in the order they came into the house, they get ready for their first competition. (Rey: Andy, Lynn and Reagan) (Saffron: Allycia, Fraser, Weston) (Leland: Cyan, Trish and Valorie) (Bea: Christy, Flanagan, Kai). Everybody gets ready and they compete for an unknown prize. Eventually after a hard-fought challenge, Saffron's team manages to pull out a win when they finish first. Rey's team finishes second, and Leland's team finishes third. This means that Bea's team finishes in last place.
Back inside the house, Julie tells everyone that the coach of the team who won will get to pick the very first Head of Household of the summer. She tells Saffron she is must make her decision on the spot right now. Saffron struggles choosing but eventually picks Weston as he is a superfan and will probably be a big target in the house. The most shocking factor of this challenge though is that Julie reveals the coach of the team who finished last place will evict a player right here, right now. Bea is almost in tears at having to make such a hard decision based on looks. She apologies over and over again but due to his poor performance at the first challenge, she evicts Flanagan from the Big Brother house, without even getting to know him. Flanagan comforts Bea and tells her it's okay and exits the house. Flanagan is told he isn't out yet though and part of the "Pandora's Box" twist after the coaches phase may cause him to get back into the house.
After all of these shocking twists have taken place, the house finally gets a chance to socialise and relax. Fraser and Andy immediately form a bond and bring in their respective teams. Even though Lynn likes the idea, Allycia, Weston and Reagan prefer to hang around with Cyan, Valorie and Christy. These six make an alliance and bring in Kai, however Kai and Trish are asked into Andy and Fraser's alliance. Each houseguest goes up to the HoH room to discuss nominations with Weston. Andy and Fraser push for him to nominate Cyan and Valorie for eviction whereas his other alliance push for an Andy and Lynn nom set.
At the nomination ceremony, Weston decided to nominate Andy and Valorie for eviction. He did this because, Andy was the leader of the alliance targeting his friends and thought if he nominated Valorie it would make sure Andy goes home, on top of the fact that even though he's close to Kai, Cyan and Christy, Valorie hardly talks to him and doesn't owe her anything at the minute. Andy goes berserk at Weston, bringing into question his masculinity, Valorie is also upset and Cyan grows suspicious of Weston and what is real intentions are.
At the Power of Veto competition, Christy manages to claim the accolade and Bea celebrates with her team at holding some power. Bea states to her team that she'll help them in any way possible to get them to win. Even though Christy is contemplating saving her ally, Valorie, Bea guides her away from it, stating that Valorie is a pawn, messing with the HoH's nominees could blow up her UTR plan.
Taking Bea's advice, Christy decides to leave the nominations the same, even though Valorie is slightly upset she understands that Cyan would probably go up and there is no point in using the PoV for no reason. After the ceremony Bea congratulates Christy on making the right move and advises Christy and Kai to stick together. This formed a new alliance where Kai brings Trish in and Christy attaches Weston who is in some hot water with everyone in the house.
When it came to the eviction voting, Andy was confident his alliance would pull through for him. He gathered Fraser, Lynn, Trish, Kai, Reagan and Allycia and campaigned for Valorie's eviction from the house. Rey back Andy and wanted both Lynn and Reagan to evict Valorie, however Reagan didn't like Andy and thought him arrogant and ignorant. Allycia and Reagan decided they wanted Andy out of the house and grabbed eager Cyan to carry out the plan. Christy, Trish and Kai discussed with Weston on who they needed out. They discussed taking out Valorie because, of how close she is with Cyan. However, they all decided Andy as the bigger threat and Weston's target plus he was on no-one's team. This resulted in Andy being the second person evicted from the Big Brother house in a 6-2 vote, shocking him and his main allies: Fraser and Lynn.
Following Andy's eviction from the house, Lynn and Fraser were left out of the loop in the vote. Knowing only two votes had been cast against Valorie, Lynn's coach, Rey berated Reagan for not following his advice, saying "He's here for a reason". Reagan felt outcasted by his team but were glad they couldn't come after him. He just stuck with his main ally, Allycia.
It was time for the second Head of Household competition, Weston had to sit out for winning last week and the coaches cheered for their respective players from the sidelines. Despite everyone else's best efforts, Lynn managed to win power and immunity for her team. Reagan quietly celebrated being safe and Fraser congratulated his main ally in the house. Rey was also very happy to keep his team safe.
Right after the HoH competition as fizzled out within the house, Julie calls the house in a meeting. She announces that the coaches will have a competition in which, if they win, they could remove one of their team members from the ability to be nominated, thus giving them immunity for the week. Julie also reveals Rey will sit out of this one due to his team already being safe because of Lynn winning HoH. After a hard endurance challenge, Saffron managed to earn the chance to keep one of her team safe. Knowing Weston is in hot water with almost everyone in the house, Saffron decides to keep him safe this week, secretly angering Lynn as he was her main target this week.
Returning to her HoH room, Lynn thought about what options she had and who she may want to target for eviction. She had talks with Rey and Fraser respectively, and from what she gathered Fraser wanted her to nominate a flipper and Rey wanted her to target on specific faction, as that would guarantee one of them go home. At the nomination ceremony Lynn decided to nominate both Trish and Valorie for eviction. Trish, because of the fact she betrayed her and Fraser's trust by evicting Andy and Valorie due to her probably being saved by the people who saved her last time.
At the Power of Veto competition it was a tight contest but eventually Trish managed to claim the power to take one of the nominees off the block. With her being a nominee aswell, it worked out rather well. Lynn knew that Trish would take herself off the block and needed a few ideas for a replacement. A montage is then shown of Allycia and Reagan always hanging out together. This is followed up by a confessional from Lynn stating her desire to get revenge on Reagan.
At the ceremony, Trish predictably takes herself off the nomination block and forces Lynn to name a replacement. After a few minutes of thinking if she should stick with "Getting Leland's faction" out or enacting revenge for her fallen ally. In the end she went for revenge and nominated Reagan's closest ally, Allycia for eviction.
With both nominees coming from the same alliance, Cyan, Trish, Kai, Christy and Weston had a tough decision to make. For Reagan, it was quite easy, he wanted his main ally and best friend in the house, Allycia to be safe from eviction and so saved her and evicted Valorie. Cyan, however, loved her team like they were her children and so saved Valorie and evicted Allycia. Fraser also evicted Allycia because, he wanted revenge on Reagan by eliminating is ride or die. It was now up to the alliance of Trish, Kai, Weston and Christy to make a decision on who goes home. Reagan pleaded for Allycia to stay but this only pushed the alliance of four into believing their partnership was a dangerous factor that could effect their alliance in the end. Much to Reagan's disbelief and sadness, Allycia was evicted in a vote of 6-1.
Proceeding Allycia's eviction from the house, Reagan felt utterly betrayed by his alliance, but he didn't have anyone else to confide in the house to. He decided that he would try and get a new three person alliance going of him, Weston and Valorie as the three of them were sort of on the outside looking in.
At the third Head of Household competition of the summer, it came down to three people: Fraser, Reagan and Trish. In the end Reagan managed to work his way into the power position, guaranteeing safety for Liz who was the only one of his team members left. The newly formed trio of Reagan, Weston and Valorie named themselves the "Dark Horses" and with their hands in every alliance, they could really run the game.
Before the house can strategize with the newly crowned HoH of the week, Reagan, the coaches have to compete in their weekly competition. Due to Reagan winning HoH, Rey will sit out of the competition. In the end, Bea manages to snatch it off Leland and win the coaches competition for this week. She decides to award it to Christy, who seems to be in a worse position than Kai right now.
After the Coaches Competition, Reagan gathered his main alliance of Weston and Valorie to discuss what options they should take. They came up with three names of Fraser, Kai and Trish as they were the biggest physical threats still remaining in the game.
At the nomination ceremony, Reagan decides to nominate both Fraser and Kai to be put on the block. He chose Fraser due to them not really ever getting along and Fraser wanting Reagan out the house. Reagan nominated Kai because, he was a bigger social threat than Trish, plus Valorie campaigned hard to keep Cyan safe for the week.
It was now time for the VETO choosing, the chips that were drawn were, Lynn, Christy and House guests Choice. Reagan drew the Houseguests choice and chose Weston to compete. The players got in their respective positions and started fighting for the accolade. Eventually though hard work and determination, Christy managed to seal the deal and win the Golden Power of Veto. Back inside the house, Christy immediately went to Bea, talking about the best use of this power. Bea told her that her top priority was to keep the team safe. Bea then left Christy to think about what she just said.
At the POV ceremony, Christy saved her team mate, Kai, due to Bea's advice entailing that she save her team before allies. Not expecting to have to choose a replacement, Reagan decided to nominate the other name that came up, Trish, due to her being a physical threat.
The eviction was looming and everyone started strategizing on who was going home. Lynn talked to individual people about evicting Trish over her only ally, Fraser from the house. Saffron also helped Lynn trying to talk to people about evicting Trish as she didn't want to lose her whole team and be eliminated from the game so early on. However, Valorie pushed Weston and Reagan to want Fraser out. With Weston and Valorie voting to evict Fraser and Lynn voting to evict Trish, the vote ended up as 2-1. Cyan wanted to save her team mate, ally and friend, Trish from eviction so she also evicted Fraser. Kai also wanted his main ally, Trish still in the game, and knowing that there was no way Fraser was staying, Christy joined the four in evicting Fraser in a 5-1 vote.
Following Fraser's eviction from the house, Lynn was very angry at having no allies and no chance to do anything about it. She vented her anger to Rey who calmed her down, she states that once this coaches twist is over she wants to work with the coaches to overthrow the majority alliance. Rey told this to the coaches who were very happy with that proposal and tried to get their teams to not target Lynn.
At the four Head of Household competition of the summer, Reagan was forced to sit out as he had won the previous challenge. In the end, Trish managed to claim the power in the house for the week, keeping her whole team safe. This pleased Leland as he still had all three of his women in the house, despite other cast members ruling his team out from the start.
With the HoH of the week decided, it was time for the Coaches Competition, Leland had to sit out due to his team being safe for the week. In the end, Rey displayed a magnificent performance in beating out all the other coaches and winning the competition. Despite Reagan's pleading, Rey rocked the house and saved Lynn from being nominated for eviction.
When it came to who they should nominate, Trish was left with a very tough decision between her allies. The only people she could truly trust were Cyan and Kai, she discussed and discussed and eventually came up with a good nomination set.
At the actual nomination ceremony, Trish revealed that she had chosen to nominate Reagan and Weston for eviction. She chose these two because, Reagan nominated her last week and wasn't part of the core group, and found how close Weston had grew to other people and branded him a threat and nominated him.
It was now time for the choosing players for the VETO competition. Christy, Cyan and Valorie were all selected to play in the competition, much to Trish's pleasure. The players chosen took their positions in the backyard to play in OTEV's PoV competition. Much to everyone and her surprise, Cyan managed to pull through and pip Reagan to the post in winning the power. Inside the house, Cyan discussed with Trish and they both easily agreed on the decision they wanted to make.
When the ceremony came along, Cyan revealed that she will not use the Power of Veto on either nominee, upsetting them. Cyan could see that they were getting upset and started getting emotional, but stated she needed to play the game aswell. The two nominees understood her reasons and prepared to swing the vote in their favour.
With the eviction looming, the two men campaigned hard for votes, despite the two being good friends, they agreed to campaign in the spirit of the game. Valorie was stuck on who to vote for and decided to talk to her other alliance about who to vote. Despite Trish and Kai being sceptical of her, they discussed strategy on what should happen. Lynn decided to evict Reagan to avenge her previous two allies, plus she did not like Reagan one ounce. Leland wanted his team to save Weston, because if he went he would lose ally, Saffron due to the coaches twist stating if you lose your whole team you're also out. Despite the fact that everyone could see what he was doing, they all agreed Reagan was a massive threat to everyone left in the game and decided to evict Reagan unanimously from the house in a 5-0 vote.
Proceeding Reagan's eviction from the house, Julie revealed to the house that the Coaches phase of the game is officially over and the coaches will now enter the game as real players that will play an individual game. Chen isn't done though, she proceeds to tell the house that there is a box on the table and they can choose to open it if they wish. Julie leaves them on this cliff hanger.
The house has very different views on the twist, but eventually - with nothing to lose - Lynn jumps up and opens the Pandora's Box much to the opposite alliance's distress. A few minutes of silence proceed the big move by Lynn until the door bell rings. Suddenly all feelings are replaced by intrugue as everyone stands by the door. Much to the houseguests surprise and shock, Flanagan walks back into the house. Questions fire at him if he's actually returning to which he replies he is. Some of the contestants such as Lynn jump up and down at having a possible ally come through the door whilst people like Weston are angered at Flanagan possibly screwing up his plans.
As soon as Flanagan has had time to settle back in to the house and the people, everyone heads outside to the next Head of Household competition. Trish had to sit on the side lines for this competition as everyone else competed in a tough endurance challenge. In the end, Christy showed what she is made of as she pulls through against some of the most physical men, winning the Head of Household for the week.
Back inside the house, the coaches came into a room and agreed to look out for each other, they also brought Lynn into the conversation and aimed to get Flanagan on their side. Most of the previous alliances stuck together. However, Christy had a close relationship with Bea in the Coaches phase. Christy decided to try and get Kai and Flanagan to join her and Bea. Kai, however, reported back to Trish who set Christy in her sights.
When it came to deciding who to nominate, Christy was stumped. Christy wanted to keep her own team safe including new entree, Flanagan. Following Bea's advice and coach tips she decides not to be obvious and target the other coaches. She decides to lock in one nomination as Lynn due to her always being on the outside and never being involved with Christy's alliance or end-game plans. Christy also decided to nominate Cyan due to her being part of Leland's team who hadn't lost a member, she also thought Cyan had too many social relationships for her comfort and needed her to be nominated.
Just before the Power of Veto competition got under way, Cyan talked to Christy about where it all went wrong, Christy says she still considers Cyan a friend however, it is in the best interests for her game. When the Power of Veto competition gets underway, Cyan manages to find a way to beat out all of her opponents to show what she is made of.
Back inside the house, Cyan hosts the VETO ceremony, she reveals that she is obviously going to save herself from the block. This faced Christy with a tough choice, trust Bea or trust her allies. She decides that she had no connections with Valorie and that Bea is a very powerful ally to have and a dangerous enemy to make. Christy therefore decides to re-nominate Valorie for eviction alongside Lynn.
With the eviction looming, Rey, Bea and Saffron met up in the HoH room along with HoH, Christy to discuss who should go home. Saffron tried to push for Lynn but Rey and Bea tried to persuade her to take out Valorie, as Leland was getting too much power. Whilst Saffron agrees, she still thinks Leland has a right to know, she approaches him and tells him of the conversations had. He pleads to Saffron to stick with him against the other two coaches, she agrees but still is torn between Lynn and Valorie. Flanagan and Weston also developed a very good friendship and were set on voting out Weston's rival, Lynn. They told Trish and Kai of their plans. However, Bea pushed for Valorie's elimination to Kai, this meant Kai and Trish had a very difficult decision. Leland and Cyan opted with their roots and saved Valorie evicting Lynn, whilst Bea and Rey wanted Valorie out and evicted her. Weston and Flanagan stuck to their guns and evicted Weston's enemy, Liz. Kai convinced Trish that Valorie needed to go and the two evicted her. It was up to Saffron... and she chose to evict... Valorie due to her not wanting Leland to have too much power over her. Valorie was evicted from the Big Brother house in a 5-4 vote.
Proceeding Valorie's eviction from the house, Weston confronted Trish and Kai about why Valorie was evicted, the two stated that she was dangerous and threatening. Weston stated that Trish and Kai will regret turning against him and Valorie and he will get revenge. Saffron managed to get Leland back on her side after evicting one of his team.
At the sixth Head of Household competition of the summer Christy took her place on the sit-out bench as she watched the other competitors par take in the Benny HoH competition. Beating out all of her opponents, Trish had the sharpest mind as she managed to clench onto the Head of Household for the week for the second consecutive time of competing.
The houseguests all congratulate Trish on her latest win and everyone starts their strategizing. Fearing that Trish doesn't trust her anymore, Christy has a long and deep talk to Trish about their status in the game. The two agree to a final four consisting of themselves plus Kai and Bea. Going back downstairs, Weston takes Christy aside and vents his feelings about Trish and wants her gone. Wanting to regain Trish's trust Christy relayed the information on flabbergasting Trish. She had a talk with her main ally Kai and her former coach, Leland and they pointed to one option. Get Weston out of the house.
At the nomination ceremony, Trish used the advice, her common sense, and what was best for her game to nominate Weston. This shocked him as he thought he had not been vocal to Trish about his defection from the alliance. Trish also nominated Lynn alongside him due to her only really sticking to the coaches and being everyone's main target right now.
Before everyone can hug and comfort the nominees, Big Brother has also placed the Pandora's Box on the nomination table. Julie pops up on the screen behind them to ask if anyone would like to open the box. Rey immediately stands up, wanting to make a bold move and knowing that he needs to try and make a move in the game, because he hasn't really done much besides laying low. Rey opens the box up in secret and earns the Diamond Power of Veto which can be used in either this week or the next. Ecstatic on his discovery Rey shares the news with his former 'padawan' Lynn who can hardly contain her excitement.
Proceeding the nomination ceremony and the Pandora's Box twist, the players for the next VETO competition were chosen. Bea, Christy and Leland were chosen by a random draw and took their places in the competition next to the HoH and nominees. The competition entailed a quite physical challenge that required a lot of mental work. After a gruelling challenge, Bea managed to claim the accolade and the power to save a nominee.
Back inside the house, Bea talked to Christy about who she should save and such like. Whilst they were doing this, Lynn was on the hunt for new allies as she new some of the coaches were using her as a number except for Rey. Knowing that Flanagan was rather overwhelmed by being back inside the house she formed a deal with him and tried to get Cyan to join her but to no avail.
At the ceremony, Bea decided to not take a nomination off the block as she didn't want any blood on her hands and she didn't want to risk Christy's safety in the game just to make Rey happy and take Lynn off the block. However, before Bea can adjourn the ceremony, Rey stands up and reveals the coveted Diamond Power of Veto. He reveals that he is going to save Lynn from the block and replace her with Christy, sending ripples through the whole house. Bea is obviously very angry at Rey and confronts him immediately after but he shakes her off. The game has begun.
With the final nominations locked in, strategizing the vote begun. Rey gathered his new allies of Lynn and Flanagan and told them of his plan to dethrone Bea and Christy from the top, they just needed to get in everybody's head that Christy is Bea's right-hand woman. Rey knew that Saffron wouldn't be hard to persuade, it was just the other four houseguests that worried him. With those four voting Christy that made the vote 4-0. After a hour of working on people, it soon became clear that Cyan and Kai weren't budging and voted with Bea against Weston. Rey needed Leland's vote, Leland was still sceptical of Saffron voting Valorie out and wanted some sort of revenge for knocking out one of his team members. In the end Leland evicted Weston tieing up the vote 4-4 and with Weston's recent targeting of Trish, Trish couldn't let him past another week and evicted him from the Big Brother house, resulting in Rey's plan falling through.
Following Weston's eviction from the Big Brother house, Rey was furious at Leland's cowardice and had a verbal argument with him. Saffron also realised that with her one last team member gone, she had to start finding some new alliances to stick with and possibly get further. She soon found that Cyan was a lovely woman who hadn't got an ounce of strategic acumen. This led her to form an alliance with Cyan and Leland.
At the seventh Head of Household competition of the summer, houseguests had to cross multiple beams to retrieve a ball. They did this until they had filled a tube with balls. However they lose all of their total score if they fall of the balance beam. In the end Lynn's slow and steady tactic prevailed as she managed to win the competition and gain power for the week.
Back inside the house, Lynn and Rey celebrate in the storage room and discuss nominations, Rey suggests Bea, Christy and Leland, which Lynn agrees with as they are three threatening houseguests that are against her. Knowing her name may be on the chopping block, Bea decides to try and talk to a few more houseguests.
At the nomination ceremony Lynn decides to nominate both Bea and Christy for eviction as they're both massive threats and need to be gone. She also thinks that they both have the potential to win the season and that them staying is a massive problem for her and everyone's game. Bea accepts the nomination whilst Christy is obviously nervous with being up against her best friend in the house.
After the nominations had been locked in for a while, the PoV competition was upon them. Cyan, Kai and Saffron were all chosen to compete in a memory test. Cyan was eliminated first, followed by Christy and Bea in one fell swoop. Lynn dropped next and Saffron threw the challenge to Kai as she wanted to continue to keep under the radar. This gave Kai the Power of Veto for the week.
Inside the house, Christy tried to guilt-trip Kai into using it on her after she used it on him earlier in the game. His honour weighed him down, however when the ceremony came, Kai decided to not use it stating the game has changed and that the individual portion has begun. Outraged, Christy got into an argument with Kai which just led to Bea shaking her head.
Leading up to the eviction votes, Rey and Lynn were set on voting Bea out of the competition. Saffron, however, wanted Bea to stay as a fellow coach and recruited Leland, she tried to grab Cyan, but understood when Cyan wanted to save Christy. The swing votes were Kai and Trish. Kai wanted to take out Christy due to his treatment after the Power of Veto, whereas Trish was hesitant. Everyone sat down, and much to their shock, Pandora's Box lay on the table. Scared that Bea or Christy might reset the week or something like that, Trish reaches out and grabs it. In the box there are three options- HoH, Voters or Nominees. As Trish was just a normal voter for the round she chose her respective option. Inside Trish received the sole vote to evict someone from the game. Shocked with mixed emotions at getting her say but having to get lots of blood on her hands. She looked at everyone but her eyes were only seeing Kai. In the end Trish thought it only best to keep her alliances strong and evicted Christy from the house. Bea chuckled in the Diary Room that the only reason she's still here is because Christy couldn't keep her emotions in check.
Proceeding Christy's shock eviction from the house, Rey and Lynn were very frustrated that their plan to take Bea out fell through. Bea, knowing that Christy was her only real ally, tried to scout around for new alliances. She eventually attached herself to Saffron, Cyan and Leland and also kept good relationships with Trish and Kai.
At the eighth Head of Household competition of the summer, a mental challenge faced the houseguests, in the end Cyan and Rey were left as the only people still competing in the competition. After a while of figuring the puzzle out, something in Rey's mind goes "Bing!" as he quickly assembles the cultural Japanese puzzle and claims the Head of Household, showing his card as a physical player.
Inside the house, Rey meets with Lynn and Flanagan who congratulate him on his win. They discuss who they should nominate and come up with four names - Bea, Kai, Leland and Trish. Leland went upstairs and apologised to Rey about the argument the day before, Rey also apologised.
At the nomination ceremony, despite Leland apologising to Rey only minutes before, Rey still nominated Leland for eviction, due to Rey thinking that Leland was doing it to 'save his ass'. He also nominated Bea as his main target, as she'd also won her respective season and was a massive threat to everybody left in the house, especially him.
At the Power of Veto competition, Flanagan, Lynn and Trish were drawn to compete alongside the HoH and the two nominees. The cast fought hard for the accolade, with some even sabotaging other people's work. In the end, the people not playing the competition judged Trish's design as the best creation awarding Trish another challenge win and the Power of Veto.
Back inside the house, Trish talked with Kai and Bea, and Trish was greatly considering saving Bea from the block, however Bea said she shouldn't as Kai would be put up in her place. Bea claims in the diary room that she's still playing this game for her team to win. Trish nods, grateful at Bea's selflessness. At the ceremony, Trish carried out Bea's wishes and decided to leave the nominations the same - much to Rey's happiness.
Going up to the eviction vote, it seemed fairly obvious Bea was going home due to Saffron being in an alliance with Leland and not her. Kai and Trish tried to gather votes to save Bea, but it proved useless as Rey and Lynn weren't budging and Saffron and Cyan were pledged to save Leland on their alliance deal. At the eviction ceremony, Pandora's Box was once again open to everyone in the house. Lynn grabbed it just before Leland could. Bea didn't go for it, not wanting to risk anything. Lynn opened the box and chose the 'Voter' box as she was just a normal voter. The box revealed that Lynn had just automatically nominated herself as a third nominee. Lynn covers her mouth and takes her place. When the votes are read it is revealed that Saffron and Cyan flipped to save both the coaches and evicted Lynn. This meant Lynn left the house through her own risk in a 4-1-0 vote.
Following the extreme shock eviction of Lynn due to the Pandora's Box, Rey was left with only one ally, Flanagan. Three clear-cut sides took up the house: Cyan, Leland and Saffron versus Rey and Flanagan versus Kai, Trish and Bea. Outside of the house Chen reveals that the Pandora's Box twist is now terminated and the twist for this week is a double eviction.
At the ninth Head of Household competition of the summer, tensions rose high as everyone knew that any competition from now could affect their game dramatically. A long endurance challenge awaited, whilst Rey watched from the sidelines. In the end it was a 1v1 between Kai and Saffron, in the end, however, Saffron managed to take the Head of Household in such a pivotal point.
Back inside the house Julie Chen calls a house meeting and tells the house that the Pandora's Box twist is now over. This earns some under-the-breath mutters from Rey. However, Chen also tells the house that a double eviction will take place and that Saffron will have to nominate three houseguests for eviction instead of the normal two. Saffron talked to her alliance of Leland and Cyan. Cyan pushed for the coaches to be nominated, however Leland and Saffron persuaded her that the coaches may keep them safe if they don't stir the pot.
At the nomination ceremony, Saffron reveals she has nominated Flanagan, Kai and Trish for eviction as they are all outside her alliance and are not coaches. Saffron and Leland didn't want to sever all bonds with Rey and Bea and wanted to make sure they played this crucial week safe. With both of them on the block, Kai and Trish were focused on getting ready for the PoV, because with the double eviction looming, it meant that one of the two would go home.
At the Power of Veto competition, Bea and Cyan were the only people not competing. In a tough and extremely close competition resulting in a photo finish, Trish managed to claim the Power of Veto. Delighted that she has won and may get her and Kai through to the next week Trish does a victory dance. However, this was bad news for Saffron who had a tough choice between either Bea or Rey. Both of them made deals, anything they could do to try and get Saffron on their side.
At the Power of Veto ceremony, Trish saved herself from the block and it was time for Saffron to make a decision. She eventually decided to re-nominate Rey in Trish's place as she branded him more of a threat and a massive inspiration for lots of the audience.
When it came to the eviction voting, Bea and Trish opted to evict Rey from the Big Brother house due to them wanting to save Kai and Flanagan being a non-entity for most of the game. They also knew Rey is a triple threat and getting him out is vital. Cyan and Leland knew that Bea would be out for Rey's blood and knowing it's a double eviction, didn't want to waste their votes on Rey. The two decided that Trish and Kai were too close for comfort and decided it was better if he was out of the competition. To split the tie, Saffron gave 8th place to Kai and he became the fourth juror while Rey comes 7th place and becomes the fifth juror.
Proceeding the double eviction which Rey and Kai fell victim to, Bea sensed that the three of Saffron, Leland and Cyan were an alliance. To counter this, she gathered both Flanagan and Trish to express the importance that they stick together or they will finish in sixth, fifth and fourth, which she says 'none of them want'.
At the tenth Head of Household competition of the summer, Cyan surprised everyone with her determination as she stormed to first place and kept up her lead. This gave power to herself, Leland and Saffron much to the disappointment of Bea, Flanagan and Trish.
Back inside the house, Trish approached Cyan and pleaded with Cyan as the two had been very close. Trish revealed that she hated to try and expose Cyan's motherly touch, but it was her only hope at surviving the block. Saffron and Leland pushed for her to target Trish with Flanagan as a pawn, leaving Cyan in a sticky situation.
At the nomination ceremony, Cyan revealed her nomination of Flanagan, who was the obvious pawn. It was the next nomination everyone was eager to see. Cyan decided that she was gonna nominate Bea as she was a really big threat in terms of how good she is at the game, plus she's always felt a connection to Trish. Leland and Saffron were starting to get peeved off by Cyan's rogue moves but gave her one last benefit of the doubt.
At the Power of Veto competition, everyone takes part, despite Bea getting to the final two, Leland snatches her hopes and dreams away from her as he wins the accolade, ensuring that Bea can't mess up their plans as an alliance. Inside the house Leland and Saffron briefly suggest saving Bea to see if Cyan re-nominates Trish to prove her loyalty.
At the ceremony, they don't follow through with any discussions but the first one they had, Leland close the box with the VETO untouched. The final nominations are left as Bea and Flanagan, dissapointing Bea as she is left kicking herself for losing the Veto competition.
Despite the show trying to build up tension leading up to the eviction vote with Flanagan being a slob and not washing up after himself, Leland and Saffron ensured Bea's fate as Bea became the sixth member of the jury, by a 2-1 vote only having Trish save her.
At the eleventh Head of Household competition of the summer, Saffron and Trish were fighting hard as the final two left. Answering true or false questions, they both kept getting them right. Then, they answered differently, it turns out Saffron was right and Saffron wins a very important Head of Household.
Inside the house, Saffron gathered Cyan and Leland and confirmed their allegiance to one another. Knowing that she would be evicted over Flanagan, Trish once again tried talking to Cyan, she played the mother/daughter card and started crying. Guilt overwhelming her, Cyan became erratic stealing food, and moping around. Concerned about her, Saffron considered getting her out of the house before she did any more damage to herself.
However, at the nomination ceremony, Saffron stuck to her guns and nominated both Trish and Flanagan for eviction. She stated that this was the final five and she couldn't afford to make any rash decisions, and made the smart decision to nominate the only two people outside of her alliance.
At the Power of Veto competition it came down to Saffron and Trish once again, and once again Trish is pipped to the post by Saffron who gets the VETO and wins all the power in the house, Inside the house Saffron had a serious talk with Leland about saving Trish and evicting Cyan from the Big Brother house due to her being very untrustworthy, Leland disagreed but told her he would support any decision she made.
In the end, at the ceremony, Saffron shocked the entire house with a massive blindside as she saved Flanagan from the block and replaced him with Cyan. Cyan was wide-eyed and Flanagan was flabbergasted. Trish just sat with a blank face as she saw an opportunity open up.
Leading up to the eviction vote Cyan pleaded Leland to save her, Leland agreed to do just that but wasn't so sure about Saffron's intentions. Leland decided to stay true to his alliance and voted to evict Trish, Flanagan however, opposed Leland, Cyan and Saffron by choosing to evict Cyan. In the end it was a 1-1 vote between the two nominees, and it was up to Saffron to break the tie. In the end, Saffron decided to blindside Cyan as she was fed up with her,plus Cyan could blow up their game as they don't know completely where her head is at. Betrayed and disgraced, Cyan stormed out of the house and became the seventh member of the jury.
Proceeding Cyan's eviction from the house, Leland confronted Saffron about her decision. Saffron stated that Cyan was way too wishy washy and would do them more harm than she would good. Leland disagreed but didn't want to upset Saffron, he still wanted an ally to confide in.
At the twelfth Head of Household competition, Trish and Leland fought and fought but eventually Trish managed to win out over Leland. Leland gave Saffron a pointed look which just earned an eyeroll from Saffron. Inside the house, Trish told Flanagan that if they wanted to win the game they needed to stick together, Flanagan agreed, and Trish hated having to align with such a pathetic person.
At the nomination ceremony, Trish did what everyone expected and nominated both Saffron and Leland for eviction as they were both major threats to her game and not aligned with her. Leland then asked Saffron if she's happy now. Saffron, obviously getting annoyed by Leland's jabs contains her anger for the diary room.
Coming up to the Power of Veto competition, Saffron was determined to take herself off the block, mad at Leland and frustrated at herself, Trish was the only one in her way as the two entered the final stage of the competition. In the end, Saffron won out and claimed the Power of Veto, much to Trish's annoyance.
At the ceremony, predictably Saffron removed herself from the nomination block and Trish was left with an easy decision. With only one option for her to choose, Trish put Leland on the block in her place making the final nominees Flanagan and Leland with Saffron being left as the deciding vote.
Leading up to the eviction vote, Leland was confident that his ally would pull through for him and Trish was unhappy that Flanagan would be going home. However, Flanagan wasn't done yet, he played up the fact that Leland had obviously been annoying Saffron with his comments about saving Trish. Saffron found herself agreeing with the perceived useless player and thought it was time to make a stand. At the eviction vote, Saffron blindsided everyone, especially her old ally, Leland as she evicted him from the game as the eighth juror, missing out on a place in the final three.
