Recap of Episode 1
Week 1 of Season 24 kicked off on Wednesday with Backstage Boss and Backstage Pass recipients.
Each group then plays a game amongst themselves to determine Season 24’s first Head of Household (HOH). Three contestants - Monte, Turner, and Daniel - were selected from their groups.
Nevada-based professional Elvis performer Daniel Durston was crowned the first Head of Household after winning the race against the other two players to put together a drum kit puzzle.
HOH comes with a great amount of power, and so does the Backstage Boss ticket, which Florida-based assistant football coach Joe “Pooch” Pucciarelli pulled upon entering the home. With his ticket, he skipped the challenges for the day and also got exempted from voting at the eviction ceremony, along with being safe from being nominated.
Daniel made some fast friends with Ameerah Jones and Nicole Layog and decided to put up Michael Bruner and Terrance Higgins for the nomination. Men’s alliance was also underway between Monte Taylor, Terrance Higgins, and Joseph Abdin.
An all-female alliance was also being made in the house. Pooch pulled backstage with Brittany, Paloma, and Alyssa. The show's host informed viewers that they can vote and save one of the women when the time comes.
The debut episode ended with the following:
• Backstage Boss: Joe “Pooch” Pucciarelli
• Backstage Pass holders: Paloma Aguilar, Brittany Hoopes and Alyssa Snider
• Nominated: Michael Bruner and Terrance Higgins
Tune in on Sunday to see the houseguests and their drama with the Daytime Emmy winner Julie Chen Moonves as the host of the show.
