What do you get when you put 12 Big Brother fans in a house for the weekend to play EVICTION? Answer: The best 30th Birthday Party ever for Big Brother, superfan Korey Kuhl! This past weekend Korey and 11 of his best friends locked themselves up in Northridge, CA to battle it out to win Reality Rush’s EVICTION, based on TV’s Big Brother.

The houseguests started off the game Friday night competing in a series of challenges where Matt Brandner and Justin Maccaro were crowned the first duo HOHs. The contestants spent the night scheming and first thing Saturday morning Tyler Oakley and Zach Holt were nominated for eviction. By a 7-1 vote, Zach became the first evicted houseguest in what kicked off a day full of intense gameplay.

Throughout the first half of the game houseguests faced off in HOH and POV competitions and adjusted to new twists in the game. Jonathan Akhavan was the second player evicted and the next four evicted houseguests – Peter Adams, Matt Brandner, Adam Pryor and Justin Maccaro – all had one thing in common… they sat on the block next to Sarah Dziuba who never went home!

Heading into the second half of the game, former evicted houseguests competed to come back into the game. First evicted player Zach returned as the HOH and nominated birthday boy Korey against the ultimate pawn Sarah. Evan Mayor won the POV and used it for the first time in the game to save Korey. Tyler Oakley became the replacement nominee and after escaping eviction 4 times, Sarah was voted out.

The final six consisted of Tyler, Korey, Evan, Zach, Matt “Carli” Caragliano and Steven McKillop who won HOH. Steven, who had been playing both sides of the house, decided to make a big move and nominated power couple Korey and Evan. Korey won the POV and saved Evan (instead of himself) and Tyler became the replacement nominee again in an effort to break up Korey, Evan and Tyler as a trio.

Before the Eviction Ceremony, Korey made a huge move and used a secret power in the game to save himself and Carli went up against Tyler. In a round that kept the entire house shocked with all the twists and turns, Carli was sent packing followed by Evan making the final four Tyler, Korey, Steven and Zach.

As the final four battled it out for HOH and POV, Tyler, who had not won a single challenge the entire game, came on strong with back to back wins. Viewed as a huge jury threat, since he was previously on the jury and returned to the game, Zach was voted out by Korey making the final three Tyler Oakley, Korey Kuhl and Steven McKillop, the self-proclaimed three biggest Big Brother fans in the house.

During the final Eviction Ceremony the jury grilled the final three on why they deserved to win. Tyler argued he made others do his dirty work, Korey elaborated on having a major role in voting out every player and Steven explained how he played both sides of the house with a sense of honesty.

When it came time to crown a winner, the jury was almost unanimous. By a vote of 8-1-0 Steven McKillop won over the jury by a landslide, Korey Kuhl took second place and Tyler Oakley finished in third.

The game kicked off with a series of challenges to crown duo HOH’s Lindsay Berger and Ryan Stanbery. The houseguests spent the night making their cases to the HOH’s on why they should stay and who should be nominated and first thing Saturday morning Chris Sanderson and Matt Godofsky were on the block. In the end, Chris was sent packing and the reality of the game settled in for the rest of the contestants.

Throughout the rest of the day contestants faced off in HOH and POV competitions and had to adjust to new twists in the game. In the second round, former HOH and Big Brother superfan Lindsay was backdoored for being too much of a threat and one by one friends of the birthday girl were evicted out of the house including Shauna Gamoran, Ryan Stanbery, Kristina Sanderson, Darci Abramson and Adam Copley.

At the end of night two, the former evicted houseguests fought to return to the game and Ryan was victorious vowing not to make the same mistakes and with co-HOH Courtney Keller The two of them nominated Caitlin Keller and Sara Was for eviction. During the POV competition HOH Ryan let his nominee Sara win. Sara removed herself on the Block and co-HOHs Ryan and Courntey nominated Nick Keller in an effort to backdoor the patriarch of the family.

Before the eviction ceremony, Caitlin made a huge move and used a secret power in the game to save herself and dad from the block. In shock, cousin Carly Burns and boyfriend Kevin Cook were placed on the block and scrambled to save themselves before the vote where Kevin was sent packing.

As the numbers got smaller, the female members of the Keller family took out the remaining male friends in the group one by one including Matt and Ryan. The final five consisted of 4 family members and 1 non-family member, Sara. Birthday girl, Caitlin, who won zero competitions on day 1 went into beast mode and won 3 HOHs and 3 POVs. Caitlin had a huge hand in getting her cousins Carly, sister Courtney and father Nick out of the game and chose to sit next to friend Sara in the final 2.

During the final Eviction Ceremony where Caitlin and Sara fought for why they should win the game, it was clear both had completely different strategies. On one hand Caitlin played the villain, making big moves, backstabbing alliance members when she felt their allegiance was no longer true, and dominating in the challenges. Sara, on the other hand, played more of a social game based on building friendships and being honest.

When it came time to vote, the Jury was split on who should win so much so that it was a tie 5-5 vote! Before the votes were cast, as the winner of the final HOH challenge Caitlin had the secret power to eliminate 1 vote in the case of a tie. She chose to eliminate Ryan Stanbery’s vote. When it was revealed who Ryan voted for, Caitlin eliminated a vote for herself and Sara became the winner of EVICTION by a 5-4 vote sending shock waves through the entire house.

Over MLK Jr weekend fourteen friends and strangers traveled to Palm Springs, CA to play Reality Rush’s ultimate game of strategy, EVICTION! Based on TV’s Big Brother. Although it was their first time playing, they easily could have been pegged as an All-Star cast of hardcore gamers!

The game kicked off with duo HOH winners Michael Hundgen and Brett Pugliese being forced to each nominate a player individually after living in separate houses. Michael nominated Marco Franzitta and Brett chose Big Brother super fan Patrick McDonald. Both nominees immediately put it all on the line – calling out alliances, exposing secret strategy and fighting to the end to stay in. Ultimately, Marco was the first evicted, but helped set the tone for an intense game.

Throughout the weekend the Houseguests continued to battle for power in the game. From the start, the women dominated the challenges with multiple wins from Jamie Watkins and Brianne Trosie. Two “alliances” and friend groups were targeted throughout the first day leading to the eviction of Brett Pugliese, Amy Graves, Joey Tague, Brett Bynane and Max Follmer.

After Michael Hundgen became the last casualty of the first day, the Houseguests were surprised when the first seven evicted players returned for a chance to get back in the game. Lasting over an hour in an endurance challenge, first evicted player Marco Franzitta returned to the game to turn the house upside down. When a majority of the house pressured HOH Brianne Trosie to nominate Marco for eviction, she shockingly targeted Patrick McDonald putting the house in a frenzy.

As players kept getting evicted, a secret girls’ alliance that formed in the beginning of the game between Jamie Watkins, Brianne Trosie and Jenna Loomer constantly dominated the game. At one point Jamie used the POV to save Jenna and later Brianne used a secret power to save Jamie and herself from the block. Combined they won 7 HOHs (out of 12) and 4 POVs all while keeping their alliance completely undetected. Ultimately it was Mat Herman who broke them up by getting powerhouse Jamie Watkins evicted in between the evictions of allies Adam Reider and Joanna Collins.

After more than 30 mental and physical challenges, bold moves, blindsides and secret alliances, the coveted Final Four players included returnee Marco Franzitta, Mat Herman, Brianne Trosie and Jenna Loomer. In the end Jenna won the final HOH taking ally Brianne to the finals and earning the power to eliminate a jury vote in the case of a tie. The finalists both deserved it causing a 6-6 tie vote with the Jury and ultimately Jenna’s decision to eliminate Mat’s vote secured her a close 6-5 victory.

Congratulations to Jenna Loomer and all of the Houseguests for such a well-played game!

Notes:

*Round 1: The first HOH had dual winners (Mike & Brett P), who each nominated one player each.

*Round 4: In a twist, the HOH had do nominate three players for eviction, and the top two vote getters were eliminated from the game.

*Round 7: The first 6 eliminated players competed in a challenge to return to the game in Round 7. Marco beat all of the other evicted players and rejoined the game.

*Round 8: Brianne found the Coup d'état, a power hidden in the house from the beginning of the game. This power allowed her to replace the two nominees on the block right before the final vote of the around. Brianne chose to remove herself and Jamie from the block, and put up replacement nominees Adam and Mat.

*Final Vote: As the final HOH, Jenna got to choose one player's vote to eliminate from the final jury in the event of a tie (prior to revealing the votes). The final vote was 6-6, a tie, but she chose to eliminate Mat's vote for Brianne, giving her the win.

We went all out on our latest event EVICTION (based on TV’s Big Brother) weekend for Lance Bass and his friends, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Sara Paxton, Cutter Dykstra, Zach Cregger, and more — as well as Dan Gheesling and his wife, Chelsea.

It is a complete understatement to say this cast BROUGHT IT! It was our most competitive group of gamers to date that delivered a game packed with intense strategy, alliances and big moves.

During the weekend, we live-Tweeted (@RealityRush) and the Twitterverse went WILD! Hundreds of people followed the game online in realtime, fans hosted live chat sessions, rooted for their favorites and responded in real time. Some fans even made charts and graphics of the game standings as it went on.

Players competed in a wide variety of challenges — both Reality Rush originals and ones inspired by Big Brother or other Reality shows. Some challenges included punishments that resulted in Lance Bass going into seclusion and Michael Turchin wearing a green man suit.

There were a wide range of mental, physical and social challenges. The photo above shows Jamie-Lynn Sigler shooting a blowgun during an HOH competition, trying to take out other players’ balloons. Another challenge had houseguests compete with an ancient weapon called an atlatl, and another had them look at the morphed faces of houseguests, trying to decipher which two people’s faces had been mashed together.

It was also a great honor having Dan Gheesling (the “Muhammed Ali” of Big Brother) play in Lance’s game. Dan has never been evicted… until this weekend! Lance Bass pulled a historic power move and “LANCED” him at the Final 7.

In the end, the winner was Sara Paxton with a hard fought and well-deserved win in a 6-4 vote against Cutter Dykstra. Sara won two HOHs, a Power of Veto, had a secret alliance with 3rd place Chelsea Gheesling and made big moves backdooring power player Zach Cregger and casting the sole vote to evict 4th place Lance Bass.

Congratulations Sara!

Thanks to all of our players and special guest hosts for making this an unforgettable weekend. If this was how an actual season of Big Brother played out, it would have made for legendary TV!

Notes:

* The first HOH had dual winners (Lance & Jamie), who had to make nominations together.

*In a twist, the 6 members of the jury up to this point competed in the Final 6 HOH challenge for a chance to get back in the game. Nick beat the other five jury members and rejoined the game in Round 7.

For their annual Reality Reunion, fourteen college friends traveled to Anna Maria Island, Florida over Memorial Day Weekend to play Reality Rush’s ultimate game of strategy, EVICTION! Based on TV’s Big Brother. It was Season 8 for this group of gamers who did not disappoint and would have sent the TV ratings through the roof!

The game kicked off with a bang when double HOH winners Mike Gabbert and Anna Jenero nominated each other’s top allies. When the house kicked back a 5-5 tie vote twice, Mike and Anna were forced to evict one Houseguest. In a jaw-dropping move, the duo HOHs didn’t agree putting them from the most powerful and secure position in the game into jeopardy of being the first one evicted. After yet another 6-6 tie vote, Julia Gabbert made a last minute switch and the house evicted Anna by a 7-5 vote sending shockwaves through the house!

Throughout the weekend the Houseguests continued to battle for power in the game. From the start, power players Mike Gabbert and Bill Busacker dominated the competitions winning back-to-back HOH and POVs nearly shutting out their competitors for the first half of the game. Three of the six women were voted off first until Mari Gabbert pulled out an impressive POV win and removed Shelagh O’Donnell from the block. Mike Hundgen then became the replacement nominee and became the first male evicted from the house and the only player who was “back-doored” throughout the game.

Towards the end of the first day, Matt Jacobson won HOH and made a bold move to nominate dominant players Mike and Bill. To Matt’s dismay, Bill won the POV and removed himself from the block so Matt then nominated their close ally Gus Pabst. Before the vote, Mike revealed he had found a secret power in the game allowing him to save himself and Gus from the block and he then nominated two of Matt’s closest allies Evan Shaw and Steve DeMan. Never before has HOH blown up so much in someone’s face.

After more than 30 mental and physical challenges, bold moves, blindsides, secret alliances and the return of the third evicted Houseguest Tori Duoos into the game, the coveted Final Four players included Stacey Meader, Mari Gabbert, Tori Duoos and Steve DeMan. All four players successfully manipulated their way to the top, but in the end the jury sided with Steve’s strategy of using players when they thought they were using him over Tori’s challenge-dominating return to the game.

Congratulations to Steve DeMan and all of the Houseguests for an amazing, entertaining and well-played game!

Ten players (who were almost all alumni of Ithaca College) played a very strategic game of Eviction this past weekend.

In this game with constantly shifting alliances, a hidden power that players searched for throughout the house, and plenty of twists and turns, it was Cary Kingdom who came out as the winning player, beating out runner-up Rachel Koller in the final vote.

The names in the table refer to who each player voted to evict, or in the final round, who the player voted to win the game.

*In this game, there was a hidden power known as the Coup D’eTat which allowed a player to cancel the HOH’s two nominees and choose two replacement nominees (not including the HOH or the POV winner), effectively making them the new HOH. Once found, the Coup D’eTat could be held by the player until they feel it is in their best interest to use it. Brad found the Coup D’eTat and used it in Round 6 to change the HOH’s nominees.
