Big Brother Host, Julie Chen

The house is open for visitors again!

Big Brother's 15th season premiered Wednesday night and introduced viewers to the 16 new houesguests competing who will be spending their summer break scheming and competing for the $500,000 prize. But there were two unexpected guests introduced in the CBS reality hit's return: Two big twists, including the introduction of a weekly MVP, who is picked by viewers, and three contestants, not two, will face eviction. Oh, and the MVP, who is anonymous, gets to pick the third nominee on the chopping block. Talk about a gamechanger!

So which houseguest was the first to become Head of Household?

McCrae Olson, the 23-year-old pizza delivery boy, is season 15's first Head of Household after holding onto a cloth popsicle for almost four hours. Hey, that's nothing compared to the poor tippers he probably has to deliver pizza to back home! Jeremy McGuire, the boat shop associate, chose to lose the challenge in order to get the never-not pass, which means he won't have to be a "Have Not" all season. Not a bad choice, dude!

Several alliances were formed throughout the outing, with Jeremy instantly connecting with Howard Overby and Spencer Clawson, and Jessie Kowalski tries to align with Jeremy and David Girton. Jeremy's one condition? He wants the alliances to remain secret. Because that always works in the Big Brother house!

Aside from alliances, a "gaymance" was formed between Kaitlin Barnaby and Andy Herren, which we already love, Jeremy thinks Kaitlin is hot, McCrae finds Howard attractive and Spencer already hates

But the night's biggest surprise? Rachel Reilly's sister Elissa Slater is one of the competitors! Though Elissa doesn't reveal her BB connection, the fellow houseguests eventually figure it out.

What did you think of the Big Brother season premiere? Do you have a favorite houseguest yet?
