-There are new Big Brother Season 16 twists! First, there will be two heads of household each week (instead of just one), meaning there will now be two victors and four contestants on the block (since each HoH nominates two people). The second twist is that the season will introduce a new competition called “Battle of the Block”, meaning the Head of Household is no longer guaranteed safety. Julie Chen, host of the show, also said that “Team America” would have more control than ever as to what goes on in the house. The new season begins on June 25 on CBS at 8/7c! http://tvline.com/2014/06/18/big-brother-season-16-twist-two-heads-of-household/ They have also revealed a list of the new cast. http://tvline.com/2014/06/19/big-brother-16-cast/
