List of Big Brother (U.S.) HouseGuests

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Big Brother, the American version of the worldwide television show, features contestants (called HouseGuests) that compete against each other to be the last Big Brother house resident and win $500,000.[1] The series first aired in 2000, and fifteen seasons have been completed as of September 2013. Big Brother contestants are chosen by the show's producers through an application process that includes a videotape submission, semi-final interviews at select cities, and a final interview in Los Angeles. Contestants are also recruited through various means but then follow the same subsequent interview process in order to appear on the show.[2]

A total of 195 participants have competed, and 23 of them have competed in multiple seasons: Big Brother: All-Stars featured 14 returning HouseGuests chosen either through viewer vote or by producers from an initial group of 20 candidates.[3] For Big Brother 11, four past HouseGuests were given the chance to return based on the results of the season's first competition, after which one of them entered the house. Season 13 featured three "Dynamic Duos" from previous seasons, while season 14 brought in four Big Brother veterans to coach the 12 new HouseGuests.

While most players are evicted from the house by vote, two have chosen to leave the house on their own volition, referred to as "Walking", while others were ejected, or "Expelled", by the producers for flagrant violation of the rules, such as engaging in violent behavior or intentionally damaging game equipment. Other HouseGuests have returned to the game after eviction, usually due to a twist but once as a replacement for a HouseGuest who walked.
