The Nominations Super Power is a twist that was introduced with the reboot of Big Brother Australia in 2012.

Every week, one housemate is given the power of influence the outcome of nominations. However, each week the power changes from seeing the tallyboard to listening in on the actual nominations.

  • In Week 7's nominations, Layla was only permitted to give one nomination (for 6 points) but it could be for any reason at all.
