Season 14 (2012)
Big Brother 14 Logo.png

Big Brother 14 was the 14th season of the American reality television series Big Brother that premiered on July 12, 2012 on CBS,[1] and ended with its finale on September 19, 2012.[2] The show is produced by Endemol USA and Fly on the Wall Entertainment.

The premise of the series remained largely unchanged from previous editions of the series, in which a group of contestants, known as "HouseGuests," compete to win the series by voting each other off and being the last HouseGuest remaining. One HouseGuest, known as the Head of Household, must nominate two of their fellow HouseGuests for eviction. The winner of the Power of Veto can remove one of the nominees from the block, forcing the HoH to nominate another HouseGuest. The HouseGuests then vote to evict one of the nominees, and the HouseGuest with the most votes is evicted. When only two HouseGuests remained, the last seven evicted HouseGuests, known as the Jury of Seven, would decide which of them would win the $500,000 prize. A HouseGuest can be expelled from the show for breaking rules, such as exhibiting violent and disruptive behaviour.

Production[edit]

Big Brother 14 was produced by Endemol USA and Fly on the Wall Entertainment with Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan returning as executive producers. This season was announced on the same day as the finale of Big Brother 13 in a press release issued from CBS.[3][4] Casting for Big Brother 14 began during the finale of Big Brother 13. This is the first season to use an online application process and to have a dedicated casting website like Big Brother UK.[5][6] Applicants are required to make a three-minute video then use a form to submit it to the producers with a current picture.[7] Applications and video submissions were due on May 11, 2012. Applicants chosen to be a finalist went to Los Angeles, where they were narrowed down to a pool of 40 finalists.[8] Open casting calls were held by the producers where they visited New Orleans, Los Angeles, New York City, Charleston, Odessa, Dallas, Miami, Cincinnati, Boise, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, Louisville, Boston, Champaign and Phoenix.[8] On June 4, 2012, Robyn Kass, casting director for Big Brother, revealed on her Twitter that all semi-finalists were contacted.[9]

The first television advertisements hinting this season's twist first aired June 17, 2012 on CBS. This season is being slated to promote a "super sized" season, indicating the most HouseGuests entering to date and four huge surprises to be revealed on the premiere, being the four ex-HouseGuests competing as mentors.[10] By July 2, 2012, several media outlets such as CBS.com and Yahoo! TV[11] officially released house photos. The season's main House theme is the 80s and "Tokyo Pop". The overall layout of the house remained the same as to recent previous seasons, in addition to various refurbishments to the appliances and a new paint job in the backyard. The room containing Pandora's Box had been replaced this season with a dual-HoH bedroom that was shared with the winning HoH's coach up until the feature was disabled when the coaches entered the game as regular players. The HouseGuests moved into the House on July 7, 2012.[3][4]

Format[edit]

HouseGuests were sequestered in the Big Brother House with no contact to or from the outside world. Each week, the HouseGuests took part in several compulsory challenges that determine who will win food, luxuries, and power in the House. The winner of the weekly Head of Household competition was immune from nominations and nominated two fellow HouseGuests for eviction. After a HouseGuest became Head of Household, he or she was ineligible to take part in the next Head of Household competition. The winner of the Power of Veto competition won the right to save one of the nominated HouseGuests from eviction. If the Veto winner exercised the power, the Head of Household then nominated another HouseGuest for eviction.

On eviction night, all HouseGuests except for the Head of Household and the two nominees vote to evict one of the two nominees.[12] This compulsory vote was conducted in the privacy of the Diary Room by the host Julie Chen. In the event of a tie, the Head of Household cast the deciding vote, announcing it in front of the other HouseGuests.[13] Unlike other versions of Big Brother, the HouseGuests may discuss the nomination and eviction process openly and freely.[12] The nominee with the greater number of votes will be evicted from the House on the live Thursday broadcast, exiting to an adjacent studio to be interviewed by Chen.[13] HouseGuests may voluntarily leave the House at any time and those who break the rules may be expelled from the house by Big Brother.[14][15] The final seven HouseGuests evicted during the season will vote for the winner on the season finale. These "Jury Members" will be sequestered in a separate house and will not be allowed to watch the show except for competitions and ceremonies that include all of the remaining HouseGuests. The jury members will not be shown any Diary Room interviews or any footage that may include strategy or details regarding nominations.[16] This season was the first to have two double eviction nights. It was also the first to have two vetos at one veto ceremony.

In a change from past seasons, four former HouseGuests from past seasons of Big Brother returned to coach the new HouseGuests during their time in the House. Each coach had to pick three of the new HouseGuests that they will guide throughout the entire game. When a HouseGuests wins Head of Household the coach of that Housemate will also gain their own private room adjacent to the Head of Household bedroom. The coaches compete in a new competition that replaces Have vs. Have-Not competition for the season. The winning coach is granted the power to give one of their players immunity for the week or to trade one of their players for a player from another team. Depending on the rules of the coach's competition, each coach then has to chose one of their own players to become a "Have Not" for the week or the winning coach has the opportunity of choosing all of the "Have Nots". HouseGuests that are chosen to be "Have Nots" for the week had to eat "Big Brother slop" and a weekly food restriction (chosen by the viewing public), take cold showers, and sleep on hard beds. The coaches were ineligible to win the $500,000 grand prize and the $50,000 runner-up prize but instead were to be awarded a separate $100,000 prize if one of their chosen HouseGuests wins Big Brother. However, on Week 3, America voted to allow the coaches to vote whether to keep coaching or become HouseGuests. Three of four voted to reset the game, and all coaches earned HouseGuest status, now eligible to win the $500,000 grand prize.

HouseGuests[edit]

A total of sixteen HouseGuests will compete, the same number of HouseGuests competing in Big Brother 9. On July 4, 2012, four television advertisements were released throughout the day, revealing eleven names of the HouseGuests to be competing in this season of Big Brother.[17] The full cast of twelve HouseGuests were revealed on July 5,[18] with four returning HouseGuests being revealed during the season premiere on July 12. An original twelfth HouseGuest revealed in the ads, Mike, was pulled off the final casting list for unknown reasons and was replaced by Joe.

Coaches[edit]

This is the fourth season, after seasons 7, 11 and 13, to feature former HouseGuests returning to the game. However, unlike previous seasons where the returning players competed as regular HouseGuests, the veterans were tasked with coaching three of the new players. Upon entering the house, the coaches were ineligible to win the $500,000 grand prize, and were instead competing to win a separate prize of $100,000, which would be awarded to the coach of the winning HouseGuest. However, after the July 26 live eviction episode, viewers were allowed to vote on whether or not to give the coaches the option of entering the game as regular players for the $500,000 prize. On August 2, America's Vote was revealed. The result was to offer the coaches the option of entering the game. Julie Chen revealed that each coach would be called into the Diary Room individually to cast their vote to keep coaching or not. Inside the diary room was a reset button, signifying the game's reset for the coaches. If at least one coach decides to reset, all coaches would earn HouseGuest status. A 3–1 vote brought the coaches into the game.

Summary[edit]

On the first night, twelve new HouseGuests entered the Big Brother House to two new twists of the season. The first twist was that four successful ex-HouseGuests would re-enter the House not to compete against one another, but to coach the new HouseGuests. Their job is to guide the HouseGuests for as long as they can, hoping to keep coaching a possible winner. The winner's coach would win a special $100,000 prize at the end of the season. Soon after the announcement, Dan Gheesling from Big Brother 10, Britney Haynes from Big Brother 12, Mike "Boogie" Malin from Big Brother 2 and Big Brother: All Stars, and Janelle Pierzina from Big Brother 6 and Big Brother: All Stars entered the House. On the second twist of the night, HouseGuests were informed that their status in the game were at risk. Because Big Brother sent the HouseGuests "invitations" to enter the House instead of a key, the HouseGuests had to earn their status in the first Head of Household competition as there were only eleven keys to be earned. Therefore, for the first time in Big Brother history, one HouseGuest would be evicted by the end of the first night. That night, Janelle and Britney forged an alliance after Dan and Boogie agreed to working together.

Before the HouseGuests competed in their first Head of Household competition, the coaches assigned their teammates. The coaches chose one by one and in order, Britney chose Shane, Willie, and JoJo; Mike chose Frank, Ian, and Jenn; Janelle chose Wil, Ashley, and Joe; and Dan chose Kara, Danielle, and Jodi. The HouseGuests other than the coaches competed in the first Head of Household competition. Each teammate had to jump across large moving mattresses to retrieve life-sized teddy bears (Upon the competition's completion, one of the houseguests, Frank, kept his teddy bear; calling him "Teddy B"). After twenty minutes, teams were allowed to substitute one teammate. Team Britney won the Head of Household competition, and Team Dan came in last place, giving Dan the responsibility to evict one of his players. On Day 1, Dan cast the sole vote to evict Jodi. Mike won the first coaches competition of the season called "Big Brother Derby" and won the power to grant one of his teammates immunity for the week: He chose Ian. The four coaches each had to choose one of their teammates to be a Have-Not for the week, with Ashley, Ian, Shane, and Danielle getting picked. Frank and Kara were nominated for eviction on Day 5. On Day 7, Shane won the Power of Veto competition, "Loose Change", which involved HouseGuests running around and trying to find coin props (one dollar coin, quarter and five cent coins). Once they find them they had to throw the coin props from a distance to a machine. Once they threw a total of $1.30 in coin props, they would win the Power of Veto. Shane decided to leave Willie's nominations the same. On Day 13, Kara was evicted in a 5 to 3 vote, leaving Danielle as Dan's only team member left. It was also revealed the winner of the next Coaches Competition would have the option of either saving one of his or her players or trading them with another player.

Frank won the Head of Household competition, "Big Brother Break-In". The HouseGuests had to determine whether a burglar that entered the house was guilty or not guilty of a certain crime. HouseGuests were eliminated by answering incorrectly. Janelle won the second coaches competition, "Phat Stacks", and chose to give Ashley immunity from the nominations. She also single-handedly chose the four Have-Nots for the week: Willie, Shane, JoJo, and Ian. On Day 14, Willie was expelled from the house, after going on a rampage in which he threw pork rinds at Janelle, swore at the female HouseGuests, and headbutted Joe. Minutes later, JoJo and Shane were nominated for eviction. On Day 15, Shane won the Memory Chip Power of Veto competition, in which HouseGuests had to run around dressed as salsa chips and dive into different pools of salsa and find different menu items names and then they had to bring the names and put them in correct order in their menu as it is on a menu at which they could look at. The HouseGuest that got most of the names in the correct order in the fastest time won the Power of Veto. Shane removed himself from the block, and Frank then nominated Danielle for eviction. On Day 20, JoJo was evicted by a vote of 5 to 1, only receiving the vote of Shane.

Following JoJo's eviction, Shane won the "On Thin Ice" HoH competition. The HouseGuests shot balls into a slotted end of an ice rink that had scores for each slot. Host Julie Chen then revealed to the viewers they could vote on whether or not the mentors should be allowed to enter the game. On Day 21, the HouseGuests went to the Big Brother Gym for their coaches competition "Feel the Burn". Their goal was to do as many exercises of a certain type. The coach who would do the least would be eliminated. When they were eliminated they had the chance to open a locker and possibly win something. Britney chose Ian and Joe as Have-Nots, Mike Boogie won $10,000 that he shared with Ian whom he gave $3,000 and Jenn who received $1,000. Dan had the opportunity to invite five people to a private sushi & cocktail party. He chose Boogie, Britney, Janelle, Shane & Danielle. Janelle won the Coaches Competition and saved Wil. Later that day, Shane nominated Ashley and Joe for eviction. Also on Day 21; Shane, Ashley, Joe, Wil, Danielle, and Frank had been chosen to compete in the Veto Competition. On Day 22, all had competed in The Juggler Veto Competition, where each HouseGuest had to roll back and forth two balls at the same time on two different ramps. If even one of the balls would fall, that person would be out. Shane won the Power of Veto for the third week in a row. On Day 24, Shane used the Power of Veto on Ashley, nominating Frank in her place. Before the live eviction took place on Day 27, Julie Chen announced that America has chosen to give the coaches the opportunity to play the game and stop coaching. If the coaches voted to become players, the eviction would be canceled and everyone would play in the HoH, including Shane. However, if the coaches chose to keep the game the same, the eviction would continue, but one evicted HouseGuest would return the following week. Julie Chen also announced that only one vote was required to reset the entire game. One by one, the coaches were called into the Diary Room whether to hit the "Reset Button" or not. Britney, Dan and Janelle chose to hit the button, while Mike Boogie did not. With the vote of 3–1, the coaches were reverted to HouseGuest status and Joe and Frank were spared eviction.

All hounded HouseGuests then began to participate in the "Walk the Plank" HoH endurance competition, in which the HouseGuests had to hold on to a bar. If they fell from the plank, they would be eliminated. After a nearly four-hour battle, Danielle became the new HoH, outlasting Britney and Ian. On Day 28, Danielle nominated Frank and Wil for eviction. Danielle won the Power of Veto from the "Field of Veto" competition on Day 29. On Day 30, Britney, Dan, Danielle, Frank, Mike Boogie and Shane created the "Silent Six" alliance and conspired to backdoor Janelle. On Day 31, Danielle went through with the plan and used the Power of Veto on Wil and put up Janelle as a replacement nominee. On Day 34, Janelle was evicted by an 8 to 1 vote and became the first returning HouseGuest to leave the show and also marking the first time Janelle has not reached the final three.

Later on Day 34, all HouseGuests, with the exception of Danielle as the outgoing HoH, competed in the "Big Brother Battle of the Bands" HoH competition, in which Frank became the new Head of Household for the second time this season. On Day 35, all HouseGuests competed in the Have/Have Not competition E-Squeeze Me?, except for Ashley who was having back spasms and could not compete. Frank played in her spot. Britney, Danielle, Joe and Shane became the Have Nots for the week, making this week the first week Ian is a Have. On Day 35, Frank nominated Joe and Wil for eviction. The next night, the HouseGuests competed in the Power of Veto competition, Birth of Zingbot, which Frank won. Frank then decided to keep his nominations the same. On Day 41, Wil was evicted by a 6 to 2 vote.

Later on Day 41, the HouseGuests competed in the "Swamped" Head of Household Competition. The first HouseGuest to fill up the HoH jug with liquid and release the cork would win. There were two other jugs as well. One was safety and the other was a choice between $10,000 or a Have Not Pass decided by the viewers voting for $10,000. Britney won safety, Mike Boogie won $10,000, and Shane won his second HoH competition and became the new Head of Household. On Day 42, Shane went against his "Silent Six" alliance in favor of his second alliance (The Quack Pack) by nominating Frank and Mike "Boogie" for eviction. Frank then won his second straight Power of Veto in the controversial Veto competition, The Candy Counter. Frank then used the Veto to save himself from nominations and Shane chose to nominate Jenn as the replacement. On Day 48, it was revealed to the HouseGuests that it was a Double Eviction night. For the first of the two evictions, Mike Boogie was evicted by a vote of 5–2. During the double eviction, Ian won the "Before or After" HoH and immediately nominated Ashley and Frank for eviction. Frank then won his third straight Power of Veto of the season in "Somewhere Over The Veto" and took himself off the block. Ian named Joe as the replacement nominee. At the end of the second eviction, Ashley was evicted by a vote of 5–1 and became the first member of the jury.

Later that night, Frank became the new Head of Household and got to choose one HouseGuest to become the Have Not for the week. Frank decided to choose Dan. On Day 49, Frank was given an option to open Pandora's Box. Frank decided to open Pandora's Box and received a little over $3,000, but unleashed quarters in the backyard to play the skill crane game, containing a Golden Ball of Veto. Ian got the ball and won the veto, but in doing so he sacrificed his chance to play in the week's POV competition. Later that day, Frank chose to nominate Dan and Danielle for eviction. On Day 50, the HouseGuests (with the exception of host Ian, who had to sit out since he already had the Golden Ball of Veto, and Joe, who wasn't chosen) played in the Power of Veto competition Draw Something, which was made after the app of the same name. Jenn won her first competition of the summer after Frank was disqualified from the competition for whispering an answer to Britney during her turn. On Day 51, Dan managed to strike a final two deal with Frank, his nemesis in the house. The two then went to Jenn in hopes of her using the veto to remove Dan from the block. On Day 52, Ian decided not to use his veto, while Jenn went through with the plan and Britney was shockingly put up as the replacement nominee. On Day 55, Britney was evicted by a vote of 4–1, only receiving the vote of Ian and became the second member of the jury.

Following the eviction on Day 55, the HouseGuests competed in an endurance HoH competition called "Soak Up the Sun". In the competition, players had to hold onto a rope as it moved around a sun on the ground. With 51% of the public Twitter poll cast during the live show, America voted the first HouseGuest to drop out to have a punishment over a reward. Joe, for being the first to drop, was given a hula hoop and was required to use it every time Big Brother sounded Reveille. Ian outlasted all the HouseGuests and won HoH less than two hours later. On Day 56, Pandora's Box was presented again and Ian opted to open it, releasing small presents (along with a new hammock for the backyard). Ian also received $1,000 in prize money. However, Big Brother 10 and 11's Jessie Godderz was also released into the house, replacing all of their junk food and snacks with healthy, organic food for the week. On Day 56, Ian nominated Frank and Jenn for eviction. On Day 57, Dan won the Power of Veto competition which featured the return of OTEV. On Day 59, Dan decided to return the favor to Jenn (who vetoed him last week) and used the Veto on her. Ian nominated Joe in her place. On Day 62, it was revealed to the HouseGuests that it was another double eviction night. For the first of two evictions, Frank was evicted by a vote of 3–1 and became the third member of the jury. Immediately afterwards, Dan won the "Make Your Case" Head of Household competition. A few minutes later, Dan nominated both Ian and Joe for eviction. Ian then won the "Swimming with Sharks" Power of Veto competition and removed himself from the block. Dan named Danielle as the replacement nominee. At the end of the second double eviction, Joe was evicted by a vote of 3–0 and became the fourth member of the jury.

Later that night, Ian won the "Memory Lane" Head of Household competition, making this his third HoH win and tying him with Frank for the most HoH wins so far this season. On Day 63, Ian opened Pandora's Box thereby giving the other HouseGuests video messages from home while he talked to Rachel Reilly from Big Brother 12 and 13. Later that day, Ian nominated Jenn and Shane for eviction. On Day 64, Shane won the Power of Veto and a prize. On Day 65, Shane and Danielle went on a luxury prize to the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastic Champions. On Day 66, Shane decided to use the Power of Veto to save himself from the block, and in return, Ian nominated Danielle as the replacement. On Day 68, Jenn was evicted by a vote of 2–0 and became the fifth member of the jury. On Day 68, Danielle won her second HoH competition of the season "Photographic Memory", and went on to nominate Dan and Ian for eviction. On Day 68, Danielle won the "Atomic Veto" competition, making it her second and final Veto of the season. After the veto competition, Dan asked Danielle to use the Veto on himself, to which Danielle would only agree if Dan would evict Ian and not Shane. On Day 69, Danielle used the Power of Veto on Dan, and was replaced by Shane. A few minutes later, the biggest blindside of the summer occurred as Dan chose to evict Shane, blindsiding Danielle and Shane. Shane became the sixth member of the jury.

Later on Day 69, Dan won the first part of the final Head of Household competition, "Hook, Line, and Sinker" (similar to the "King of The Jungle" endurance HOH from season 10 in which Dan also won). On Day 71, Ian won the second part of the final Head of Household competition, "Climb Time". On Day 75, Ian won the third part of the final Head of Household, "Jury Statements" and became the final Head of Household of the season. Ian then evicted Danielle and chose Dan to take to the final two. The jury was allowed to ask questions to both Dan and Ian, who began to turn against each other. In the end, the jury voted for Ian to win the grand prize by a vote of 6 to 1 over Dan, with Danielle being the only person to vote for Dan. Before the finale ended, Julie Chen announced that Frank was the winner of the $25,000 America's Favorite HouseGuest prize. Ian Terry now has a record of 4 HOH wins, tying Rachel Reilly from Big Brother 13, Hayden Moss from Big Brother 12, Janelle Pierzina from Big Brother 7 and Drew Daniel from Big Brother 5.

Notes[edit]

  • ^Note 1 : As coach of the first place team, Britney had to choose which one of her players would be the first Head of Household. As the coach of the last-place team in the first Head of Household competition, Dan had to evict one member of his team on Day 1.
  • ^Note 2 :      During the first three weeks, the coaches participated in a competition that gave them the power to save or trade one of their players. In Week 2, the power of trading a player was introduced.
  • ^Note 3 : Due to a violent outburst, Willie was expelled from the game by Big Brother on Day 14. Because Frank had not made nominations yet, Big Brother decided to allow the game to continue on as normal. In addition, Willie's expulsion prevented him from being a candidate for America's Favorite HouseGuest.
  • ^Note 4 :      Prior to the planned live eviction on Day 27, the viewing public voted to offer the coaches the opportunity to become HouseGuests. Each coach individually entered the Diary Room and was presented with a reset button. By pressing the reset button the coach accepted the offer to return, if a coach did not press the reset button that meant the coach declined the offer. By accepting the offer the planned eviction would be canceled, the coaches would become full HouseGuests and Shane would be eligible to compete for the next Head of Household competition. If all the coaches declined the offer, previously evicted HouseGuests would be given the opportunity to re-enter the House and the eviction would continue as planned, but if even one accepted, the game would reset and the coaches would enter.
  • ^Note 5 : Week 6 was a double eviction week. Following the first eviction, the remaining HouseGuests played a week's worth of game – including HoH and Veto competitions, and Nomination, Veto, and Eviction ceremonies – during the remainder of the live show, culminating in a second eviction for the week.
  • ^Note 6 :      During the Head of Household competition, Big Brother tempted the HouseGuests with the option to either win $10,000 or receive immunity from being nominated for eviction that week.

  • ^Note 7 : During Week 7 there were two Golden Powers of Veto available. The first Golden Power of Veto was won by Ian as a result of Pandora's Box. Jenn won the second available Golden Power of Veto in the competition. Ian opted not to use his veto, while Jenn chose to veto Dan's nomination.

  • ^Note 9 : Week 9 had a special eviction night event. Due to this, the eviction and the following Head of Household competition occur two days earlier on Day 67.
  • ^Note 10 : During the finale, the jury members voted for which finalist should win Big Brother.

Controversy[edit]

Willie was expelled from the Big Brother house on Day 14 after head butting Joe, who had made comments in retaliation to comments made by Willie. Moments before the incident with Joe, Willie told everyone that he would do anything to get himself removed before the actual live eviction that week. Willie proceeded to throw food at Janelle and call other female HouseGuests explicit names, before ending his rampage with the headbutt incident. He was immediately called into the Diary Room and expelled from the game. Minutes later the remaining HouseGuests were informed by producer Allison Grodner that Willie had been permanently removed from the game and the game would continue as normal.

On Day 42, shortly after Shane made his nominations as Head of Household, he told Danielle that the production crew in the diary room explicitly told him not to put up Frank and Mike for nomination that week. However, both were nominated and were thus eligible for eviction that week. On Day 43, Frank drew a "HouseGuest's Choice" token during the player draw and when asked to draw again, as later confided to Boogie, he palmed the token. Many fans believe that this was a result of the production team's desire to keep Frank in the game. This led to an outrage within message boards, fans and viewers, causing many to doubt the authenticity of the show once more. The scandal also ran throughout the Big Brother House and caused tension between opposing HouseGuests, who were not allowed to discuss the situation. Allison Grodner did not comment on the scandal. A video of Frank talking to Boogie about the cheating was put on YouTube, but later removed by CBS for copyright purposes. Despite outcry from fans, the game continued on as normal. On Day 48, Mike was evicted from the game. Frank, when on the block, won the veto and later won HoH causing many forums to speculate that the competitions were rigged in Frank's favor. Despite controversy, the game progressed on regardless.

On Day 49, after winning the Golden Ball of Veto from the crane game, Ian alleged several times to various HouseGuests that some of the producers were attempting to manipulate his decision and threaten him in the Diary Room by supposedly telling Ian how the Ball of Veto will benefit him if he decided to use it. Although that did cause fans to question the Big Brother game, other HouseGuests from past seasons have stated that the producers always ask the HouseGuests to name pros and cons about evicting certain HouseGuests for the week and they also ask the HouseGuests how it will better their own personal game if they kept one HouseGuest in rather than the other and vice versa, it's been known (since Big Brother 2) that producers ask HouseGuests how evicting HouseGuests, using the PoV or a special power will benefit their game, but the outcome is not controlled by the producers as HouseGuests can quickly change their minds at the last second if needed to. From seasons 2 through 9 host Julie Chen during the live shows would then say, "Let's take a look in the Diary Room where HouseGuests share their thoughts on the nominees as they cast their votes." and that's when the HouseGuests would share the pros and cons and explain what would and wouldn't benefit their own game.
