Big Brother 13: Starlight Stage
Hosted by @VioletValkyrie

Welcome to the dazzling world of idols as we enter the newest season of PokéBeach Big Brother: Starlight Stage! The intense lights bring fortune and fame, but they don’t arrive alone. The road to becoming an idol is never easy, filled with new treacherous twists as well as competitions and challenges standing between you and stardom.
The stage is what you make of it. Good or bad, it's all up to you to decide just what colour this starlight stage will shine.

To audition for your chance to enter this season, fill out this application form! Applications will be open for just about two weeks, until October 1st 2021 at 6:00PM PST. At that time, we'll move into our next steps of cast selection.
If you’re new or simply looking to brush up on your knowledge, why not stop by the PokéBeach Big Brother Wiki, filled with records of every past season to date?

Before you do that, though, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with Big Brother and its rules and information.

Alliances are of course permitted, and strongly encouraged. You may make as many alliances as you’d like to with other houseguests. This can be done through Discord group DMs. However, the hostess must be added to the conversation.

The game cannot be discussed with any evicted houseguests. If you have a Discord alliance with any evicted houseguests, please remove them (or if you have been evicted, leave your alliance chats). Additionally, outside communication about the game with non-houseguests is not allowed.

In this game, screenshots may be necessary for some challenge submissions. When signing up, make sure your device is able to take a screenshot, otherwise you will have problems when you need one. When you submit a score, you must show proof the screenshot is yours. This can be done by having your PokéBeach account in another tab, or by putting your account name on a Notepad. Whatever works to prove the screenshot was taken by you.

These rules are to be taken very seriously to preserve the healthy sportsmanship of the game, and breaking the rules will result in heavy punishment, possibly including risk of immediate expulsion and future blacklisting.
There will be little tolerance for inactivity in the game. In order to keep the game flow sweet and spicy, a warning system is in place for anyone unable to submit for competitions or vote at eviction. If you fail to submit your nominations or a POV competition, you will receive a double offense, and will be given 12 more hours to make up the decision.

Example:

Warning #1: If you miss a competition or vote, you will be given a slight warning.

Warning #2: If you miss a second competition or vote, you will be given a more severe warning.

Warning #3: If you miss three or more competitions or votes, you risk being expelled and removed from the game at the host's discretion.

It is perfectly okay to send in conditional submissions (ex: “In case I’m not online again, my vote is for Lorde, but don’t lock that in”). I will be able to take those and count them if you’re unavailable by the deadline. If you’re unable to submit for a competition, or don’t want to, please let me know and we will work together on finding a solution that works for you. I will likely be stricter on this rule than most other hosts, so it’s imperative to let me know if you run into any complications whenever possible so we can keep the game’s flow on track for everyone involved, playing or not. Failure to follow this guideline may result in warnings or penalties.
In this game, there are no changes to the general week structure seen in Big Brother.
For those who are familiar with my previous game structure, there will be a Week Zero between the game’s start date and Week One, but this game will not feature lengthy End of Week segments seen in previous games. There may still be short amounts of content in-between weeks, however.

If you’re not familiar with what this means, or have any confusion with the way this game works, please read through this section carefully to make sure you understand this sequence.

Head of Household (HoH):
This is the first competition and event of a week, a competition that everyone except the previous HoH competes in. The winner of this competition becomes the Head of Household for the week, giving them immunity and control over the nominees.

Nomination Ceremony:
After the HOH has been crowned, they will then make their nominees. The 2 players that the HOH picks are now up for eviction, and are at risk of being eliminated from the game.

Power of Veto (POV):
After the nominees have been selected, the Power of Veto will begin. The only houseguests participating in this competition will be the HOH, the nominees, and 3 other randomly selected houseguests. The winner will be able to save 1 of the HOH's nominees, and if 1 of them is saved the HOH must nominate someone to replace them (though this cannot be the winner of the POV, immunity is gained in addition to the power).

Eviction:
After all of the above events have happened, the players will all vote on who will leave the Big Brother house. The player with the most votes will be evicted, and out of the game. After the eviction, players are given a set amount of time before the start of the next week, repeating the cycle.
The Jury:
After a certain amount of time, it will be announced that the houseguests remaining have reached the jury phase of the game. This means that everyone left in the house will either be in the Final 2, or a part of the jury. The jury members will cast their vote for 1 of the 2 finalists to win the game.

Finalists:
At the end of the game, there will only be 2 houseguests left. During the finale, these 2 will face the jury, and plead their cases to win to them. The jury will be able to ask them questions, to make things clear about their gameplay. The finalist who receives the most votes from the jury will be crowned the winner of Big Brother 13!

This was posted a little while ago but if anyone's still following this thread and is unaware, the game plans to start at a later time due to a lot of scheduling issues, the game is set to start in late November and we'll be updating the OP as well as letting those interested know individually later down the line. If you see this and are interested, there's no harm in sending an application, and it allows me to get in touch with you easier for when we plan to start.
