CBS says that this will be the most “twisted” Big Brother season yet. Here are a few new things to watch for in BB16:

Two Houseguests will win “Head of Household” (HOH) each week, and will nominate two fellow Houseguests for eviction. But now, being HOH does not guarantee safety for that week.

Fans can influence the game though “Team America.” Viewers can vote online for a Houseguest they would like to form an alliance with.

A new high-stakes “Battle of the Block” competition shifts the power in the house each week.

Also new this season, the 76 cameras in the Big Brother House are now in full high definition.
