A lot happened during the Thursday night's live eviction episode of Big Brother season 24, including one of the biggest blindsides yet this season, but it's what happened at the end of the episode that had fans griping on social media.
But before we get to the drama over tonight's Head of Household competition, let's find out who got evicted from the BB Motel this week, shall we? At the end of Wednesday night's episode, long-targeted housemate Taylor Hale finally got her redemption and some support in the form of a brand new alliance called The Leftover, comprised of Taylor, Kyle, Michael, Brittany, Joseph, Monte and Turner. Their plan is to blindside the girls' alliance alpha, Ameerah, and they make good on that plan.
When former HOH Matt Turner announces Ameerah and Terrance as the replacement nominees, the Festie Besties are shocked. "I feel like I've been hit with a brick," Terrance confesses. Ameerah concurs: "I was kind of anticipating Turner making a big move but I didn't think it was going to be me and Terrance."
Despite some suspicions, for the most part, Ameerah feels like she is safe this week. However, with a seven to four vote, she is chosen to be evicted from the Big Brother house this week. "You guys got me," she said upon hearing the news.
So what will happen to her Festie Bestie Terrance? Host Julie Chen announces: "At BB Fest, you can have more than one Bestie. The surviving Bestie will have the power to choose which set of Besties they want to choose...if anyone in your group wins Head of Household, you're all safe that week...if your set of Besties is nominated, you will all sit on the chopping block but only one of you will go home."
Terrance chooses Monte and Joseph as his new Festie Besties, and the group is herded into the backyard for this week's HOH competition, called The Invitation. The housemates will have to search through 1,500 envelopes to find a red invitation. The first eight houseguests to do so would move onto round two of the HOH comp.
Viewers got to watch as Jasmine, Terrance and Brittany discovered red envelopes... and then the credits started to roll. And it appears like the live feeds also cut out during the comp, which means that, much to their frustration, BB24 fans will have to wait until Sunday night to find out who is this week's new HOH.
Who won HOH on Big Brother? Fans don't get to find out
Many Big Brother fans took to Twitter to air their frustration, especially as the show wasted precious minutes showing shoutouts from the housemates and clips of a new movie, The Invitation, instead of the full HOH comp.
GEE, THANKS FOR WASTING 60 SECONDS OF MY LIFE PROMOTING YOUR STUPID MOVIE...@CBSBigBrother #BigBrother #BB24 pic.twitter.com/g7Mu5ly3gCJuly 29, 2022
They can shout out their families 24/7 on the live feeds. 60 minutes (minus commercials, so 42? mins) for a live show. Cut that shit out. #bb24July 29, 2022
The shoutouts were seriously so annoying tonight. They need to tell them if they do that next Thursday they become an automatic have not. It’s getting ridiculous! #BB24July 29, 2022
i’m gonna need feeds back up asap , i just KNOW the drama in that house is insane rn #BB24July 29, 2022
damn yall so annoying for dragging out the commericals and stupid ass promo for that movie like we could’ve atleast seen the first roundJuly 29, 2022
You spent the last ten minutes telling us the rules, promoting a movie nobody cares about, telling us the schedule that everybody already knows and 2 commercial breaks. Just get to the damn competition!July 29, 2022
STOP doing a two part HOHs!! At least turn on the live feeds.July 29, 2022
We’re really not going to see this HOH challenge?? Keep that energy production. When I go watch “the invitation” and they don’t make a advertisement for big brother, I will laugh. #bb24 pic.twitter.com/MMM10rkeVKJuly 29, 2022
