5. The Coup d'Etat
In Season 7 of Big Brother, we learned about the Coup d'Etat, which was a tool that gave one Houseguest the power to knock the Head of Household's elimination nominees off the block, back to safety, and replace them with nominees of their own. For example, in Season 11, Jeff Schroeder used the Coup d'Etat to nominate power players Jessie Godderz and Natalie Martinez, which ultimately resulted in Jessie's eviction.
