Big Brother Season 24 is on, which means almost three months of Head of Household winners, nominated Houseguests, Veto winners, and maybe even an unexpected surprise or two. It’s a lot to juggle over the course of a season, and even the most avid fans of the game are bound to miss a moment or two without checking live feed spoilers every so often for updates.
For those who lack the time to avidly follow the live feeds with their Paramount+ subscription, or for anyone just needing a reference throughout the season, consider this the definitive week-to-week guide for all things related to Big Brother Season 24. Starting with the most recent week, this will be a log of all major happenings in the house, with links to more detailed breakdowns of alliances, confrontations, or other moments folks might’ve missed even before they officially air so beware of spoilers. In the end, only one will join the long list of winners, so let’s dive in and look at where things are at now.
Week 5 (August 4th) Michael Is The Head Of Household
- Nominated: Terrance, Monte, Joseph
- Played For Veto: Terrance, Monte, Joseph, Brittany, Michael, Jasmine, Turner
- Won the Veto: Michael
- Veto Used on: Terrance, Monte, Joseph
- Post-Veto Nominees: Kyle, Daniel
- Evicted: TBD
Michael Bruner can't stop winning competitions and finally captured his first Head of Household win of the game. That, paired with his three previous veto wins, should be more than enough to show he's a winner if he makes it to the end, though it's a little too early to think about the endgame. Michael nominated Terrance Higgins, Joseph Abdin, and Monte Taylor for eviction, but it seems like his ultimate goal is to target and evict Daniel Durston.
Michael assured he'll be able to do what he wants this week with his fourth veto win, which raises concerns about how he'll keep a target off his back in the coming weeks. Ultimately, Michael wanted control to make a decision, and did exactly that by putting Daniel up on the block.
Week 4 (July 28) Monte Is The Head Of Household
- Nominated: Alyssa and Indy
- Played For Veto: Monte, Joseph, Terrance, Alyssa, Indy, Daniel, Kyle
- Won the Veto: Daniel and Kyle
- Veto Used on: Alyssa and Indy
- Post-Veto Nominees: Taylor and Nicole
- Evicted: Nicole
The newly formed Leftovers alliance really needed another win to really gain some momentum in the game, and a win by Monte Taylor gave them exactly that. It felt likely Monte would target another person outside of the alliance, and he did by targeting Alyssa Snider and Indy Santos.
With that said, Alyssa and Indy aren't his true targets at this stage. Monte fully intended for the veto to be used so that he could nominate Taylor Hale and Nicole Layog, but then changed course to keep nominations the same. His plans, ironically enough, were derailed by Daniel who believed Monte was working with Taylor, and no longer felt she'd survive eviction on the block against Nicole. Daniel used the veto, and Nicole went on the block with misplaced confidence she shouldn't have had.
In the end, Nicole was evicted and only got a vote from Daniel. She left the house without much incident, as Daniel stayed behind and told Houseguests they couldn't "split the check" and needed to play their own games.
Week 3 (July 21) Turner Is The Head Of Household
- Nominated: Michael and Brittany
- Played For Veto: Turner, Jasmine, Brittany, Michael, Nicole and Taylor
- Won the Veto: Michael and Brittany
- Veto Used on: Michael and Brittany
- Post-Veto Nominees: Ameerah and Terrance
- Evicted: Ameerah
Matt Turner is the Head of Household in Week 3, and it's looking like it's going to be a revenge week for the Houseguest. Turner lost his closest ally Pooch, and what's worse, he only learned of the plan in the final hours leading up to eviction. No doubt he's going to want to target whoever is responsible, though the BB Fest Besties twist could throw a wrench in his plans. Turner ultimately decided to put Brittany Hoopes and Michael Bruner on the block, though had a plan to backdoor Taylor Hale with the veto.
That plan changed after Turner talked to Monte Taylor, Kyle Capener, and Joseph Abdin, who then united with Taylor, Brittany, and Michael to form "The Leftovers." The outcasts of the house suddenly had a majority alliance, and they shocked the other Houseguests when Turner put Ameerah and Terrance up on the block. The result was nothing short of chaos with fingers being pointed in every which direction, but at this time, no one seems to think Ameerah is the true target.
The same was largely true on eviction night, as the jaws dropped when her name was called by Julie. The blindside went off without a hitch, but I'd expect Nicole, Jasmine, and Daniel to do whatever they can to figure out how they thought they were controlling the game only to suddenly learn they aren't.
Week 2 (July 14th) Jasmine Is The Head Of Household
- Nominated: Taylor and Pooch
- Played For Veto: Jasmine, Pooch, Taylor, Ameerah, Michael, Terrance
- Won the Veto: Michael
- Veto Used on: No One
- Post-Veto Nominees: Taylor, Pooch
- Evicted: Pooch
Week 2 of Big Brother essentially signaled a reset of the game after Paloma Aguilar left for "personal reasons." Her exit gives Taylor Hale a fresh opportunity in the game, though incoming Head of Household Jasmine Davis also had issues with Taylor. Sure enough, Taylor found herself back on the block but so did Joseph "Pooch" Pucciarelli. Pooch decided to volunteer himself to be a pawn in order to curry favor with Jasmine and others in the house.
Michael Bruner didn't use his second veto win to remove either nominee from the block, which left Taylor and Pooch up for eviction. Pooch felt relatively sure of his position in the house and didn't campaign much. Meanwhile, almost everyone else knew it was a golden opportunity to cut a major player, especially up against Taylor. In their mind, Taylor can go at any time, so Pooch was cut this week.
Week 1 (July 6) Daniel Is The Head Of Household
- Nominated: Michael and Terrance
- Backstage Boss: Joe “Pooch” Pucciarelli
- Backstage Pass holders: Brittany, Alyssa, and Paloma
- Played For Veto: Daniel, Michael, Terrance, Indy, Ameerah, Turner
- Won the Veto: Michael
- Veto Used on: Michael
- Post-Veto Nominees: Taylor and Terrance
- Evicted: N/A (Paloma exits game for personal reasons)
Week 1 of Big Brother Season 24 got off to a weird start, thanks in part to the role of the Backstage Boss and Backstage Pass recipients. With four people unable to be nominated this week and the game just starting, there wasn’t a big rush for Houseguests to try and talk strategy with the first Head of Household, Daniel Larson. Daniel did make some fast friends with Ameerah Jones and Nicole Layog, and it seems like he’ll lean on them in the coming week for ideas on who he should put on the block. Daniel ultimately decided to put up Michael Bruner and Terrance Higgins, though Michael's veto win forced Daniel to name Taylor Hale as his new nominee.
Elsewhere in the house, there’s an all-female alliance brewing, though it looks to be only as strong as its members. The upcoming eviction will determine just how effective this group is and if it’ll break the past trends of the partnership falling apart. There’s also a Men’s alliance currently happening between Terrance Higgins, Joseph Abdin, and Monte Taylor, but who knows how serious it is at this time.
Week 1 also had its fair share of controversy as fans and former Houseguests took issue with the house's microaggressions against Taylor. Former members of The Cookout spoke out on the issue, and fans requested production step in and address her mistreatment. Some viewers are also up in arms over Paloma Aguilar's alleged cheating by attempting to bribe Houseguests and want her punished.
It all culminated in a memorable eviction night, in which an eviction didn't actually happen. Julie announced that Paloma left the game for "personal reasons," and her absence effectively killed the ability to do the Backstage Pass twist. As such, the only logical thing to do was reset, and allow everyone but Daniel to compete for the HOH in Week 2 (and gave Taylor a much-needed second chance). Additionally, a new twist is coming, but Houseguests and fans were left in the dark on what it is.
Big Brother airs on CBS (opens in new tab) on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET and live evictions on Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET. Fans can also check out episodes on Paramount+ and get access to the live feeds to see everything that goes down.
