Festive Big Brother 3 was hosted by Dom, Madison and Nick with Colin as the series first "Intern." This was the third season of the Festive Big Brother series that was themed around the Japanese festival Tanabata. The Tumblr blog for the season is: festivebigbrother3.tumblr.com
Returnees: On night one, after the cast reveal, it was also announced that four players from previous seasons would also enter the game. These four houseguests were Blake (S1) , Elijah (S2) , Logan (S2) and Ruthie (S1).
Night One: It was revealed to the house that the returnees who had just entered the game would have to come together and pick ONE person to vote out during the first day in the house. This person went on to be Zach.
Two Houses: According to Tanabata legend, the Milky Way separates the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi, the lovers are only allowed to meet once a year (Tanabata). This season the houseguests would also be separated into two houses (Orihime and Hikoboshi). Each house would have 2 returnees and 7 newbies. There would be two HOHs from each house and each HOH would nominate someone from the other house. If the POV was used one one of the nominees then the HOH that nominated that nominee would then be named the replacement nominee. Then both houses would come together and vote one of the two nominees out.
Tanzaku: In present-day Japan, people celebrate Tanabata by writing wishes or poetry on tanzaku (small peices of colorful paper) then hang them on bamboo. This season this concept was brought into the game having the houseguests vote for the person they wanted to win HOH in their house. The person with the most votes in each house would become the HOH.
