Twists

This season's main theme centered on technology.

BB App Store

Each week, viewers were asked a series of questions about their opinions on the remaining HouseGuests. The HouseGuest who was named in the most overall answers was deemed the "top trending" HouseGuest of the week and earned a "Power App", which would give them an advantage in the game, while the HouseGuest who was answered the least was deemed "least trending" was given a "Crap App", which gave them a punishment. Once HouseGuests received an app, they were no longer eligible to receive one in the future. This twist lasted for three weeks.

Week Top trending Power App Ability Least trending Crap App Punishment
1 Sam Bonus Life To be used immediately after a HouseGuest is evicted from the house, this power will give that HouseGuest a chance to return to the game via a competition. This power must be used in the first three evictions, or else the fourth evicted HouseGuest will automatically be given the chance to return. Faysal Hamazon The HouseGuest will routinely be given packages of ham, which they must consume on arrival. (As Faysal is Muslim, a vegetarian ham substitute was used instead.)
2 Tyler The Cloud The HouseGuest has the power to make themselves immune from nomination during one Nomination or Veto Ceremony of their choice over the following eight weeks. Rachel Yell! For 24 hours, an angry reviewer was unleashed into the house at random times to loudly give the HouseGuest feedback on their game.
3 Bayleigh Identity Theft The HouseGuest can secretly replace the HoH's nominations with two of their own. This does not affect replacement nominations and can be used until eight players remain. Haleigh Read It! Periodically throughout the week, the HouseGuest must wear a costume and read Hamlet in a Shakespearean accent. This punishment will continue until the entire play has been read.
