‘Big Brother 18’ Spoilers: 4 Mystery Players Named, First HOH Was Crowned, And Nominations Taped [Spoilers]

The time has arrived — the Big Brother 18 season premiere is tonight on CBS.

Ahead of the launch of the Big Brother season, social media has exploded with rumors and speculation about what’s to come for the new season. The BB18 rumor claims the four returnee players were named. The veteran houseguests will play as regular players, and not coaches. Since the players started the game on June 15, the first Head of Household and nomination ceremony was taped a few days ago.

There is so much excitement about Big Brother’s new season, and the rumors about the season have been running rampant on social media for the past two weeks. The biggest focal point over the past few weeks has been the identity of the remaining four players. Until recently, it was not confirmed by CBS that four players were entering the name that was not part of the cast roll out, Big Brother Network reported.

Speculation kicked into overdrive on social media as they tried to predict who could be entering the Big Brother house. According to Facebook, Howard Overby (BB15), Frank Edy (BB14), Nicole Franzel (BB16), and Shelli Poole (BB17) won the “right to enter the house.”

We do know they had a difficult challenge as the vets battled each other for a right to enter the Big Brother house for a “second chance” to win the grand prize of $500K. They will enter the house as regular houseguests, and will not play as coaches or experts. It could be a good thing or bad for the returnee players; we’ll have to wait it out and see how it works out over the next week or two.

A Big Brother production leak claimed that Shelli won the first Head of Household challenge, keeping her safe for the week. They decided not to use the Battle of the Block for BB18, so there will only be one HOH each week. Not only did we learn that Shelli is the HOH for the first week, but the rumors claimed that she nominated Victor Arroyo and Bronte D’Acquisto for eviction for the first LIVE show. Apparently, the Power of Veto hasn’t been played because there isn’t any information about who won or the ceremony results quite yet.

BB18 Leaks revealed that Dr. Will Kirby will return in September to sit down with the jury for the round table talk about the season. Brenden and Rachel Riley will pop in to show off their gorgeous daughter, Adora and talk about how their life has changed since their bundle of joy arrived. And, the zingbot will return mid-season to “burn” the players with one of a kind insults in a way only he can.

Big Brother will debut for Season 18 tonight on CBS, and we will see the complete cast in the two-hour premiere. The fans should get prepared for a season of backstabbing, blindsides, and twist as CBS launches the “most twisted season ever” tonight.

At the moment, we aren’t 100 percent sure who the mystery players are (only the rumors and they seem to be all over the place), and how they could change the game. What we know is, Big Brother has worked very hard to keep their identities quiet, so we hope that means we’ll be thrilled with the outcome.

Big Brother announced last week that the series will air the longest they ever have this year–topping 99 days. The news made many fans very happy, as it meant they will get to see their favorite summer reality show a few more days.
