Big Brother Over the Top is a new game show that has been airing for two weeks now. This big brother spinoff features 18 contestants who are living in one house, and have their every move placed under 24-hour surveillance to create drama on television. The show has been receiving mixed reviews from critics, but what do you think? Is this a good idea for a big brother series?
The contestants are all adults, which makes for a different dynamic than the original big brother. They have to do everything from cook dinner and wash dishes to share beds with one another. Viewers can vote who they want eliminated each week, and at the end of three months there will be only one winner left in the house.
Contestants on Big Brother Over the Top follow many of traditional rules like not being able to talk about nominations because it’s filmed 24 hours a day. And if you break these rules? You could get kicked out before your time is up! That’s why some people think this new show might need more time limits or boundaries on what you can say outside of filming hours so that things don’t get too out of control.
Contestants are competing for a $250,000 grand prize and the opportunity to headline their own talk show on CBS All Access! If you want big brother: over the top coverage like no other then be sure to tune in every night at 11 pm ET/PT only on CBS All Access.
A Big Brother game show for the 21st century:
The rules have changed with this new version of Big Brother that premiered last week instead of 12 houseguests all vying for one spot at the end, each contestant is an adult who has come into the house as an individual player looking for $250k and their chance at hosting their very own TV show on CBS All Access. The contestants follow many traditional rules from not being able to talk to one another (except in secret during the weekly Head of Household competition, when they can strategize together), but there are some new ones too.
Contestants cannot speak about their identities or past occupations outside of the house without risking a penalty vote from America.
This season’s big twist is that contestants must compete for an individual $250,000 prize and not just as part of a jury: if you win HOH this week, your fellow players will nominate two people each who will go up against you at next Thursday’s eviction ceremony and whoever wins gets both prizes!
The stakes have never been higher with Big Brother: Over The Top – tune in every Wednesday night on CBS All Access starting October 27!

The big brother: over the top show follows 18 contestants, half male and half female, who are isolated from society for three months in a house outfitted with 52 cameras. The game is played inside this house where one player will be crowned “Big Brother” while others are eliminated through weekly competitions (live evictions). In addition to earning $250,000 as their share of a pot that totals more than $500 million (the amount has not been revealed), the winner gets to meet President Donald Trump before they go on tour together and promote each other’s brands.
Every week there is a Head of Household competition which determines power players in the house. These people can nominate another contestant for eviction or take themselves off nomination. Winners of Head of Household are immune from being nominated.
In the first week, six players entered into the game. These contestants were divided in two teams and competed against one another for Big Brother’s attention by winning competitions that rewarded power to their team mates: Alpha (consisting of Kelsey and Kaycee), Bravo (made up Nate, Angela, Rachel Swindler). Team Alpha won all three challenges so they controlled nominations. The show crowned Josh Martinez as its big brother with Rockstar Jennie Garth hosting the live eviction show on Sept 26th.
The last five episodes will be aired once a week until October 18 when America’s player gets picked which is determined by polls on CBS All Access video streaming service.

He was also the first player to get a vote of eviction.
Entering its second week, the game is more polarized than ever. The Alliances continue to dwindle down and with this dwindling comes an inevitable clash between two juggernauts in power: Team Alpha (consisting Kelsey) and Bravo (made up Nate). Who will come out on top? We’ll soon find out what happens as Big Brother gears up for next weeks live show.
