What is the plot of ‘Big Brother’ Season 24?

At the beginning of each week, the guests compete for the Head of Household. The winner becomes immune from eviction and chooses two contestants to be nominated for eviction.

Six guests then compete for the Power of Veto competition and the winner can either revoke the nomination of any one contestant or simply leave it that way. If the veto winner uses the power, the Head of Household should nominate another housemate for eviction. The Power of Veto winner gets immunity from being replaced by another nominee and on eviction night, the contestants vote to evict any one nominee.

However, the Head of Household and nominee cannot vote and it is conducted by host Julien Chen Moonves in the Diary Room. The Head of Household has the right to vote in case there is a tie. The evicted nine contestants, called The Jury, are sent to another house and they decide the winner. The Jury can only watch the competitions and ceremonies. The public has the right to award an additional prize of $75,000 and the evicted contestants can win the award.
