Big Brother 22 will be having another battle back competition this season according to one of its current houseguests. Janelle Pierzina seemed to confirmed that there will be at least one competition to return to the game taking place this summer.
The first few of eliminated houseguests aren’t heading straight home once evicted. It looks like they’ll be sticking around for a little while. It appears there is a new twist coming to Big Brother this All-Star season.
Big Brother 22: Will Every Evicted Houseguest be on the BB Jury?
So far Big Brother 22 has been very similar to CBS’s Survivor: Winners at War. It’s brought back a cast of All-Stars which is almost exactly what WaW did with a season of all-winners. Now, it seems Big Brother is about to borrow some more stuff from its sister show. They’ve been doing it for years, from using eerily similar twists, to the same show formatting.
It’s likely in part due to the fact that the production crews on the shows are overlapping. So, it makes sense that they might use the same concepts for certain twists. For example, Big Brother 21 copied Survivor‘s Edge of Extinction twist with Camp Comeback, where the players of both shows got a second chance to return to the house.

Janelle Pierzina Confirms Evicted Players Won’t Be Sent Home
According to the queen Janelle Pierzina herself, the evicted Big Brother 22 houseguests won’t be leaving. Yesterday, in a conversation with Daniele Donato Briones, Janelle revealed CBS production told her that no one would be going home until at least mid-September.
CBS reportedly paid these Big Brother 22 houseguest generously to return, so it’s no surprise they want to keep them around. It could mean that tonight isn’t the last we see of whoever gets voted out between Kevin Campbell and Keesha Smith.

Big Brother 22: Could There Be Two Battle Backs?
Since Survivor had two battle backs on their All-Stars season, CBS may do the same for Big Brother 22. There could be a pre-jury battle back – and there is reason to believe the entire cast will be jury members according to our sources.
And there could also a jury buyback competition as well. Big Brother has done it in the past on BB18 and Victor Arroyo won both of them.
BB22 airs Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
