Pandoras-Box

Pandora's Box is a mysterious door with a golden "?" mark on it. The Head of Household gets to choose whether to open it or not. The contents of the Pandora's Box can either be an advantage, disadvantage or both to the HOH and/or the other houseguests. It is offered to a Head of Household in certain periods in the game which are determined prior to the start of a season.

The concept of this twist borrows from the Greek myth of a box that contained all the evils in the world disguised as something good. If opened, the evils would be unleashed upon the world, but possibly bring something good with it as well.

During Season 1, Pandora's Box is renamed, NotJerby's Box as a nod to the troll of the season, NotJerby.

2 A Diamond Power of Veto that grants the bearer the power to remove a player off of Nomination Block and then select the nomination themselves, rather than deferring to the HOH for the replacement nominee. It came with the stipulation that he/she can not be randomly selected as a participant in POV competitions as long as he/she is in possession of the Diamond Power of Veto unless he/she is an HOH or Nominee. It is effective until the Final 5.

5 The current HOH must choose between the two houseguests that he/she nominated for eviction. The chosen nominee will become a Co-HOH and will be safe from eviction. The two Heads of Household will then choose a new nominee. Failing to come to an agreement on who to nominate will cause both Heads of Household to become the final nominees instead.
