Spoilers forward for the August 9 episode of Huge Brother Season 25.
It would not be Huge Brother with out some surprises, and as soon as once more, the present might have to name an audible and change up the way to proceed with the remainder of the sport. Luke Valentine was heard on the stay feeds casually uttering a racial slur, and after a morning of reactions from the followers and previous gamers, the CBS sequence introduced his expulsion from the sport.
Viewers who have not already seen the footage will see it acknowledged in Thursday’s stay episode, which was purported to function the primary eviction of the season. Now, with Luke already out of the home, we do not know if Kirsten Elwin or Felicia Johnson will go dwelling in any case. This is what we find out about what has occurred prior to now, and why it is attainable there was by no means an eviction taking place this week within the first place.
What Huge Brother Has Executed Earlier than With Evictions Following Houseguests Leaving
Many Huge Brother viewers are equating Luke Valentine’s exit to Paloma Aguilar‘s in Season 24, and there are similarities. Followers will do not forget that Paloma’s exit was a voluntary withdrawal, and she or he left on Day 8 of the sport and tied the palms of the producers within the course of. Consequently, Julie Chen Moonves introduced the week’s eviction was cancelled, and everybody however the Head of Family of Week 1 was allowed to play for the subsequent HOH. Now, in Season 25, Luke can also be out on Day 8.
Assuming Huge Brother follows the identical protocol this 12 months, Felicia and Kirsten will keep in the home, and everybody however Week 1 HOH Reilly Smedley will play for Week 2 HOH. Personally, I really feel Reilly deserves an opportunity to play and for the present to do a gentle reset, but when she’s sidelined like Daniel Durston was within the earlier season, it is not the worst situation.
It’s price noting that Huge Brother has continued on with the eviction in each earlier occasion the place a Houseguest was expelled from the sport. Whereas there are similarities between Paloma and Luke’s exits when it comes to time spent within the sport, and it is the closest instance we have now of how the present dealt with an unplanned exit, she was not expelled. I nonetheless lean towards the concept Huge Brother will do what it did in Season 24 and replay Head of Family, however precedent from earlier seasons means that the eviction will occur.
There Are Rumors Huge Brother Wasn’t Evicting Anybody This Week Anyway
The net rumor mill for Huge Brother is at all times sketchy when it comes to reliability, however after it completely nailed Survivor legend Cirie Fields being in Season 25, I am extra keen to imagine the opposite wild rumor circulating earlier than all this drama occurred. There’s been hypothesis all week on X (previously often called Twitter) that there was one other secret Houseguest coming into the sport on eviction evening and that no participant could be evicted in Week 1.
After this reveal, the Huge Brother home was allegedly going to be divided into two teams of 9 folks. If this was the twist, then Luke’s sudden expulsion tousled the numbers. It’s attainable, nonetheless, that they will simply add the key Houseguest to interchange Luke and nonetheless do one thing zany. Once more, that is simply hypothesis based mostly on web theories, however followers discovered Cirie was on the present, so this may very well be legit!
Huge Brother will reveal what’s taking place through the stay episode on CBS on Thursday, August tenth at 9:00 p.m. ET. Those that cannot watch on the community have choices to observe the present on-line with their Paramount+ subscription and compensate for all of the drama taking place in the home by way of the stay feeds.
