Julie Chen ENDS the Rewind Mystery - Updated due to Chenbot Malfunction
JULIE CHEN: Basically if the rewind button gets pushed, the two nominees next week come off the block and we immediately rewind the game one week. That means all house guests play for HOH all over again…. So there could likely be a new HOH, two new nominees, a new POV winner and then who knows who gets bounced from the house next.
UPDATE: Julie sent the following update for clarification on this point: "To clarify: All the Houseguests, who competed last night, will play for HOH all over again. Sorry for any confusion. Chenbot malfunction. What the bleep #%€?¥!?”
So, as of right now, barring any more clarifications, Derrick will NOT be able to compete for HoH come Wednesday Night.
