Every week the houseguests one by one go into the secluded and soundproof diary room to make their selection on who they would like to see leave the house that week.
The 2 houseguests on the block and the HOH cannot vote but in case of a tie the HOH would then vote to break the tie live.
Once there is only 9 houseguests remaining in the house then the voted out houseguests from that point on after leaving the house are sequestered to a 2nd house called the Jury House.
When the original house only has 2 guests remaining in the house then the 7 sequestered contestants are asked to vote for the person they wish to win the $500,000.00 grand prize.
Big Brother airs 3 times a week on Sunday at 8 PM ET/PT, Wednesday at 8 PM ET/PT and Thursday at 9 PM ET/PT.
Big Brother is a long-running reality show on CBS where a group of contestants known as houseguests enter a house in Los Angeles, without being able to leave, or have contact with the outside world, and be monitored by cameras 24/7 while they compete in challenges, form alliances, and vote each other out of the house in the hopes of winning the $500,000 grand prize.
They are not allowed to leave the house or its' backyard for any reason, they cannot see or read magazines or newspapers, no radios, no computers, no phones, no I pods or MP3 players and only the HOH is given a small portable CD player to listen to CD's left in the HOH room for them.
HOH stands for the Head of Household and once every week the guests in the house compete to try and win HOH and all the perks that go along with being the HOH for the week.
