America votes to let the coaches enter the game, pitting the four 'Big Brother' alums and the remaining eight HouseGuests against each other for the grand prize.
The result of the "America's Vote" on "Big Brother" has been unveiled. Before the live eviction show on Thursday, August 2, host Julie Chen announced that viewers chose to give a chance for the coaches to join the remaining eight HouseGuests in the game.
Joe and Frank were nominated for eviction that night, but if any of the coaches hit the reset button, the eviction would be canceled and everyone would play for the Head of Household (HoH). One by one the coaches were called into the Diary Room whether to hit the "Reset Button" or not. Britney, Dan and Janelle chose to hit the button, but Boogie did not.
The coaches were reverted to HouseGuest status, and Joe and Frank were saved from possible eviction. All 12 contestants then competed in the "Walk the Plank" competition to get the HoH status. In the game, they must stand on thin planks on a pirate ship that made them lean forward for as long as they could in the rain.
After more than three hours, Danielle was the last one standing, outlasting Britney and Ian who jumped off minutes before. The 23-year-old nurse is now the HoH.
