Notes:
^1 On Day 2 Boris, Miki and Yossi were nominated and the public was given ten minutes to vote. However, a mistake coming from the production meant that only Boris and Yossi faced the public's vote after Miki's nomination was miscalculated. Out of Boris and Yossi, Boris was evicted and interviewed by the show's hosts. Once the mistake was noticed he was put back into the house. The nominations were re-held on Day 7.
^2 All housemates were automatically nominated for a special eviction on Day 28.
^3 Originally Einav and Asher were not nominated for eviction, but they tried to deceive the Big Brother and send Tzabar and Shifra for nomination. The Big Brother exposed the fraud and replaced Tzabar and Shifra with Asher and Einav.
^4 Big Brother gave Shay permission to attend his aunt's funeral for a few hours (outside the house) so he wasn't present for his eviction.
^5 Inna, Hagit, Shachar and Yoni were immune from being nominated because they are new housemates.
^6 Housemates nominated who they wanted to stay in the house and the three or more housemates with the MOST nominations were the only ones safe this Week.
^7 All housemates automatically faced the public vote this week, and for the first time two housemates were evicted from the Big Brother house.
^8 In week 14, any housemate who got at least one vote, was nominated for eviction.
^9 There were no nominations in the final week and the public were voting for housemates to win, rather than be evicted. the housemate with the most SMS votes was the winner.
