"I think for the first time you're going to see some praise for being lied to, because Derrick for the most part is an all-around nice guy who nobody dislikes," Chen said of the BB finale.

Tonight's BB competition starts with contestants dangling from a hang glider in a storm -- the type of physical feat one might expect on Jeff Probst's show -- Survivor.

The survival competition show has a few tricks up its sleeve, and Probst shared one huge twist for this season.

"In each episode, loved ones will pair up against each other in a one-on-one challenge," said Probst. "If you win, your husband goes to Exile Island, so the only way for you to succeed is by sending your loved one to Exile Island."

Survivor airs tonight at 8/7c, while Big Brother follows at 9:30/8:30c.
