Hello everyone, my name is Joeypals, that's my sexy cohost @Fate Testarossa, and welcome to Big Brother! *stock audience clapping inserted here* In this game, you will be competing against a vast number of people in multiple challenge types, trying to get to the end and win a boatload of Amazon money! Already interested? Well first, allow me to summarize what Big Brother actually is. Big Brother is a show that airs around the world, with its most prominent versions being in the US and UK. Big Brother is similar to Survivor, except it is the latter's wackier, crazier, more competitive cousin. While Survivor contestants are plodding around in the sand looking for "hidden" immunity idols, the contestants of Big Brother directly test their strength and memory to see who comes out on Top. Big Brother has three phases, so to speak, and they go as such (open the spoiler!). Spoiler: The Game Phases Stage 1: HOH Competition The HOH Competition, or Head-Of-Household, is a competition held with all competitors playing except for the person that won HOH the week before. These challenges will be where most of the battle challenges take place, with the winner being crowned that week's HOH. The HOH must name two people for eviction when sending in information for the corresponding challenge. Nominations will be stated by the host. This phase should take 3 days total, though may fluctuate based on challenge type. Stage 2: POV Competition After the original nominations, a POV Competition, or Power-Of-Veto Competition, will be held. There will only be 6 players in this competition -- the HOH, the 2 nominees, and 3 people chosen at random. Everyone will be assigned a number and if the number the person is assigned to is drawn, they have to play in the competition. Whoever wins the Power Of Veto has the choice of taking one nominee off the block, in which case the HOH has to nominate another person who is not the previously pulled off nominee nor the HOH. As this phase has fewer contestants, this phase should take no more than 2 days, 3 days if the challenge is larger. Stage 3: Eviction After the final nominations are set, everyone besides the HOH and 2 nominees will submit a vote to me via Conversations. You are not allowed to change your votes. Each Eviction Phase will have a time limit of 48 hours, at which point voting will be cut off (read: may not posted at exactly 48 hours after, as life and such). Whoever receives the most votes will be evicted from the game. In the case of a tie, the HOH will cast the deciding vote. If you receive the majority of votes, you will be out. In the TV show, there is usually a competition for contestants to battle their way back into the game, but for the sake of time I have decided against this in this version. There is also something called a Double Eviction, something that will be used during the first couple of challenges should we exceed 20 players. A Double Eviction week is similar to the regular weeks, except that everything is doubled except for the amount of challenges played. Two HOHs will be crowned, four nominations for eviction will be made, two POVs will be awarded, and two people will be evicted. Both of the HOHs will not be able to compete in the following HOH. As far as voting goes, they will work in separate pools. So for example, if Corrin nominated Spongebob and Patrick while Robin nominated Dora and Boots, Spongebob and Patrick can vote for Dora and Boots and vice-versa, but not in their own pool. Challenge Type Overview These challenges will almost all exclusively necessitate usage of both the server and forums. If you have not downloaded PO yet, you'll get the link at the end but for now please keep reading! The prominent challenge types consist of such: Mafia Scavenger Hunt Category Trivia Forum Scavenger Hunt Host-Made Riddles Pokemon Battles Rules and Guidelines All forum rules apply, as well as all server rules. Make sure to treat each other with respect, and do not flame if you are eliminated. For example, if @Professor Oak evicted me, I couldn't call him a, say, stupid fat turkeyf*cker. That's not OK whatsoever. If you are caught cheating, you will be removed. This means ghosting battles mainly. You're more than free to talk with each other outside of the thread, just don't directly contribute to the success (or failure!) of someone else. PLEASE STAY ACTIVE! This is the main thing that will make sure this game works for everyone. I'm not one who goes light on activity, so if you fear you'll be AFK for an extensive period of time, please let me know so that you do not fall into what I'm about to say. Unless you specifically tell me you'll be gone for a couple days, the first challenge you miss, I will flash you in this thread. You will then have until the corresponding eviction week to reply to the thread. Should you NOT do so by that time, you will be modkilled. So yeah, stay active :) Make sure to have fun! Sure you're playing for money (and for Safari players, Safari rewards too as there's a hidden schedule for that), but ultimately this game is meant to encourage fun. For all intents and purposes, all challenges that require the server must be done on Pokemon Online. Pokemon Showdown is chill but this is a Pokemon Online game, not a Pokemon Showdown one, therefore I am requiring PO usage. Don't worry about transferring teams, our transfer system is just like PS'. You are not allowed to edit answers submitted or votes submitted. Once you make a submission for a challenge, that submission is final. You'd think this would be common sense but I gotta reiterate it. Now, I'm sure you'd like to know what you guys are playing for. As mentioned previously, there is a hidden reward schedule for Safari players, but the main Amazon gift card rewards apply to everyone. How do you win these gift cards? That's simple! For every challenge that you win, you will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card (will be transmitted over email, will be requested upon your victory). This applies to both HOH and POV challenges. If you make jury, you will receive $10. If you make the end of the game, you'll be getting a little bit more, based on the size of the game. So here's a breakdown, from 20 players all the way up to 100. 20 players - 1st $25, 2nd $15, 3rd $10 40 players - 1st $50, 2nd $25, 3rd $15 60 players - 1st $75, 2nd $40, 3rd $25 80 players - 1st $100, 2nd $50, 3rd $25 100 players - 1st $125, 2nd $75, 3rd $50 Wanna sign up? Perfect! All you need to do is fill out this form when you reply to this thread, then you'll be entered! PO Server Name: Timezone: OS (Operating System. Android, PC, etc): Let the games begin! Best of luck everyone. Signups close Nov. 22nd at 12:01AM. HOH #1 will immediately start out of that. This is PO's Download Page!

Hurricane is a nominee via RNG. 8This player was placed on a modkill timer due to a lack of activity. 9This player was modkilled due to a lack of activity. 10This player was evicted after the HOH broke a tie between nominees (gengar17 and Sora). 11After being caught boosting during HOH #3, aaditya 01 was removed from the game. 12Due to aaditya's removal, only one player won HOH in Fate's pool in Week 3. This player was MeowMix. Only two nominees (HSOWA and Zyrader) were named as a result. 13Three of the four nominees were chosen, however both HOHs chose to nominate raka143. khaloss is a nominee via RNG. 14As a result of not naming replacement nominees despite prior forewarning by Fate Testarossa and myself, Agent K and HBC were automatically named the replacement nominees despite winning HOH #3. 15As a result of Footnote 14, MeowMix now holds the power to break ties in both pools for this week. 16Hurricane is the first player to use the POV on someone else. He saved HSOWA from eviction. 17In a first for all version of Big Brother, the HOH(s) went from straight from being HOH to post-POV nominees, in this case for not following the rules. Both were subsequently eliminated from the game. 18The vote was initially tied 4-4 (Sasuke Uchiha and Zyrader). MeowMix broke the tie, resulting in Sasuke Uchiha being evicted. 19Two votes are missing from this count (DracoNova and Sora). 20Sora was placed on an activity timer for being unactive on the forums (off forums for 11 days at the start of the timer) 21MeowMix awarded VirajVora with safety for this week. 22This week marks the first week without pools. From now on, except for Double Eviction weeks, there will be 1 HOH, 2 nominees, and 1 eviction. 23Due to Sora's inactivity in the HOH, Zyrader was granted immunity from eviction. 24Due to inactivity, Sora was removed from the game. 25One vote is missing from this count (HellRaka). 26For forum inactivity, HellRaka was placed on the modkill timer for the second time. 27One vote is missing from this count (HellRaka). 28HellRaka was placed on warning. If he missed one more vote from this point (Week 5, start of Week 6), he will be modkilled. 29VirajVora was placed on a modkill timer for server inactivity. 30After refusing to participate in HOH #7, and thus screwing over a fellow competitor, as well as other initial activity, Fate and I decided to modkill VirajVora. Floaters, get a life vest, because Viraj's just popped. 31Due to Viraj's refusal to play, La.Neptune was granted immunity for this week. 32Due to the forums being down for two days, the cycle length is different from normal. The HOH lasted 5 days, while the POV and Eviction lasted 1 day each. 33Atli is the first HOH to save one of their own nominees using the Power of Veto. 34This week is a double eviction week. 35After missing two votes and being warned that if he missed another vote he'd be modkilled, HellRaka missed another vote (Week 8). Therefore, he's been modkilled. 36Three votes are missing from this count (La.Neptune, HellRaka, and Romantic_Guy)) 37For failing to vote in the Week 8 eviction, La.Neptune and Romantic_Guy were placed on modkill timers. 38As this is a double eviction week, there was supposed to be 2 HOHs. However, only one person followed the challenge rules out of everyone that won, and therefore there's only one HOH this week. 39After showing proper activity, Romantic_Guy was taken off of the modkill timer. 40Two votes are missing from this count (Hurricane and MeowMix) 41As a result of missing the vote, both Hurricane and MeowMix were placed on the modkill timer. 42Week 11 starts the Jury Phase. At this point, whoever is evicted will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card and play a big part in the finale. 43Jethalal won HOH by default as he was the only winner of a battle to submit anything. 44EvilDingoRobot was originally the nominee instead of DracoNova, but Draco was randomized in after EvilDingoRobot was awarded immunity 45As a result of challenge readiness and only not being able to play due to opponent reluctance, EvilDingoRobot was awarded immunity for this week. 46HSOWA was gifted the Diamond Power of Veto in Week 10, and chose to use it in Week 11. He saved himself and nominated Romantic_Guy in his place. 47Romantic_Guy, while not originally nominated, was nominated by HSOWA after HSOWA used his Diamond Power of Veto. 48Atli was given an official warning following poor behavior. 49Jethalal has the only vote this week. 50This week is the last week for regular gameplay. 51This week has no POV, but instead a 3-part HOH.
