Big Brother: Timebomb kicked off tonight with a massive bombshell as Simon Gross was evicted before even spending one night in the house.
Tonight, during the Big Brother: Timebomb Live Launch, Emma Willis surprised the Housemates with the first live eviction.
Viewers were given the opportunity to vote via a free poll on the Big Brother app. They voted to select five Housemates to take part in the first Timebomb Twist. The five Housemates were Adjoa, Jack, Jade, Nick and Simon and they took part in a game which had huge consequences for one Housemate and rewards for others.
Adjoa, Jack, Jade, Nick and Simon had to stand in front of five Timebomb podiums which had the Housemates fate inside. Jack got immunity and he will receive 3 immunity passes throughout the series. Nick got nominations, and he will have to nominate face to face throughout his time in the house. Jade got luxury and she will receive a luxury shopping budget, exclusively for her to use at some point during her time in the House. Adjoa received nothing, and Simon received an eviction.
Simon became the first person to leave the Big Brother House. He told his fellow Housemates upon leaving “Have a great time all of you…it’s been fantastic…showbiz”. Simon left the House to boos. When speaking to Emma he said: “For my five minutes of fame it was fantastic, I’ve got a career to go back to…its showbiz. I’ve had so many rejections in my career it’s just one of many, its showbiz…I would have been fabulous buy that’s the way it goes. I think they will have a really fantastic summer”.
Join Emma on Friday night at 9pm for a special live episode where a second time bomb will drop on the Housemates. Very soon, viewers will be able to vote via the Big Brother app and Big Brother wants to know who should be the winner of Big Brother: Timebomb. During this second free poll which will close during Friday’s live show, the Housemate with the most votes won’t actually be crowned the winner on Friday. They will discover they’re the most popular Housemate and that popularity comes with a price. The Housemate will need to make a devastating decision that will affect the entire house…
Big Brother: Timebomb returns tomorrow night at 10pm on Channel 5.
