“Big Brother: Till Death Do You Part”

This season's “Big Brother” house features 51 cameras and 74 microphones. This year, there are 16 houseguests competing for food, luxuries and power. The final houseguest will receive $500,000.

For the first time in “Big Brother” history, all the houseguests are single and looking for love. Each houseguest is being paired up with someone who could be their soul mate.

Among the houseguests, we find that Sharon and Jacob dated on and off for about 12 years. Neither Sharon nor Jacob know that the other one will be there in the house.

Jen and Ryan have been dating for about 9 months, and living together for 7 months. They are playing this game “in cahoots,” as Julie Chen tells us.

Sharon just about has a panic attack when she sees Jacob.

Everything the houseguests do they will do with their soul mate, including sleeping in the same bed. Irony of ironies, Jacob and Sharon wind up getting paired together.

Sharon reminds me of Allison from a past “Big Brother” season.

Sheila, who will be turning 46 in April, is paired with 29-year-old Adam. They not a match made in heaven. When they are paired up, Adam tells her, “It’s me and you ma.“ She retorts, “Do not call me ma.“ This team should be interesting.

At the first competition, they learn that the winning couple will be able to evict another couple in just a few hours. The competition is called, “Falling for You.” The couples decide which one of them will be suspended in the air, the other one lies on the honeymoon bed below. When the suspended partner is lowered, they have to grab on to each other, and hold on tightly. They will be then be lifted back into the air. If their partner falls, both houseguests will be eliminated.

After half of the houseguests are eliminated, the rest learn that the heart pillows below them could be worth cash. They have 10 minutes to try to pick up their pillow from the air using only their hands. If they succeed in getting their pillow, and winning the competition, they will also win $10,000.

Jen and Parker are the first “power couple” and have won $10,000.

Tune in Wednesday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 8 p.m. and next Tuesday at 9 p.m.
