2. Program Description: The Program commences at 6:00pm Pacific Time (“PT”) on July 28, 2016 and runs through 9:59am PT on August 26, 2016 (the “Program Period”). The Program Period will include five (5) separate voting periods (each, a “Voting Period”). During a Voting Period, viewers of the Big Brother television show will be asked to interact with the show by voting to choose which houseguest will receive such Voting Period care package, that consists of a special power or advantage granted to such houseguest for a limited time in the game. The eligible houseguest that receives the most votes during a Voting Period will receive such Voting Period’s care package.

There are five (5) separate care packages for viewers to vote on; one (1) per Voting Period, as applicable. Viewers can see all five (5) care packages on the BB Web Site. At the beginning of each Voting Period viewers get confirmation on the care package they will be voting for during such Voting Period. Houseguests can only win one (1) care package during the Program Period. Viewers must choose wisely which care package they want which houseguest to win and vote accordingly.

In the event the houseguest that wins a Voting Period’s care package has been voted out of the house, such Voting Period’s care package will go to the houseguest that received the second most votes.

The announcer will invite viewers to vote, at the beginning of a Voting Period, by going to the BB Web Site.

3. Voting Periods: Voting, for the first Voting Period, starts at 6:00pm PT on July 28, 2016 and ends at 9:59am PT on July 29, 2016.
