Celebrity Big Brother officially kicked off its second season on Monday night as twelve brand new celebrities entered the house to begin a month of drama, competitions, and backstabbing, all for our viewing pleasure.

After the twelve celebs entered the house, viewers got the chance to see how some of them are getting along. From the get-go, we got some drama as we learned that Tamar Braxton and Kandi Burruss aren’t fans of each other due to something that happened in the music industry.

Host Julie Chen Moonves dropped the “expect the unexpected” slogan and boy, did no one expect the twist that was coming. She told the celebs that they are taking part in the first-ever “Celebrity Power Pair” competition and it would be played in duos. The winning duo would have one member of be the sole Head of Household.

Everyone was paired up except Kato Kaelin and Natalie Eva Marie, so they earned immunity from the first eviction of the season on Friday. The competition saw the celebs swinging back and forth while trying to fill a giant glass with “champagne.” Okay, let’s be honest — it was foamy water.

Anyway, Ryan Lochte and Jonathan Bennett were victorious, which meant that one of them would become the first HoH of the season. But first, (okay, I had to!) Julie had some news for the pair: Jonathan and Ryan will now face off against one another to determine who is HoH. The loser will automatically be up for eviction.

Celebrity Big Brother continues on Tuesday with the head-to-head battle for HoH and the nominations ceremony.
