Twists[edit | edit source]
- Collaborations: Housemates this season signed up as pairs called collaborations, with various incentives being in place for keeping your collaboration around.
- Tap Out: If one member of a collaboration is nominated and the other isn’t, they can switch out following nominations to maximize their chances of staying.
- Artist Of The Week: The season is music themed and each week’s twists and events will be themed around a particular Artist or Group.
- Telephone: In Week 1, inspired by Beyoncé and Lady Gaga’s Telephone, Andrea and Lexi were awarded the Telephone advantage by their fellow housemates. This power allowed them to both be immune in Week 3.
- Immunity: In Week 2, the Viewing Lounge chose Andrea to be immune in a twist inspired by LCD Soundsystem. The housemates voted for someone to receive immunity also in Week 4, inspired by BLACKPINK.
- Tiebreaker: In Week 2, a tie in the vote between Gevonte and Solar occurred. This tie was broken by a house eviction vote.
