The Big Brother 16 Launch Twist was the first twist of the series and took place on launch night. It was the first 'time bomb' to be dropped and involved 5 housemates opening 5 random timebombs to get either something good or something bad. It is notable for being the first time ever that a housemate has been evicted on launch night.
Housemates were gathered in the garden, where Big Brother revealed the five housemates that had been chosen by the public to take part in the twist: Jack, Adjoa, Jade, Nick & Simon. Five timebombs had been placed in the garden & the housemates had to choose one to open.
