The nominations will take place in a new room called - The Bridge.
Best BB presenter IMO - Arisa Cox in the Bridge. (She lived in a Canadian "version" of Big Brother in the 2000's. They werent locked in like BB. They were part of a show called the Lofters and the housemates were tasked with producing live hosted shows each night with a different theme that aired live on network tv. Everything else was streamed live online. Footage from the the live stream was edited into the Lofters programme that aired I think 3 nights a week. Arisa live there for a year.)
