Posted on

Instead of two nominees for eviction each week, there will be three! That’s one of the new twists announced for this summer’s edition of Big Brother, which will bow June 26 at 8 p.m.

Unfortunately, that’s all that CBS is spilling for now: The new process of evictions will be announced in the premiere, which will include the return of Host Julie Chen (natch).

The second twist will make way for viewers to play a role in the game by allowing them to cast votes for houseguests who play the best game. The houseguest who receives the most votes each week will be rewarded an MVP title and a secret power. That’ll be revealed in the premiere, too.

“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies. With America rewarding good game play, it doesn’t pay to be a floater this summer,” said Executive Producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan in a statement.

As is usually the case, the house decor has changed this summer, too. Take a look:
