Big Brother 20 is the twentieth season of the American reality television series Big Brother. It is based upon the Dutch series of the same name. The season premiered on June 27, 2018 on CBS in the United States. Julie Chen returned as host.
The series was announced in August 2016 as part of a double renewal for Big Brother 19 and Big Brother 20. Along with the series the 24/7 live feeds returned with a CBS All Access subscription and Big Brother: After Dark is also returned on Pop. The season is produced by Endemol Shine North America and Fly on the Wall Entertainment. Julie Chen returned as host and Allison Grodner as well as Rich Meehan returned as Executive Producers. CBS began allowing online applications in September 2017, however open casting calls did not begin until March 2018. Celebrity Big Brother winner and runner up Marissa Jaret Winokur and Ross Mathews host a new companion show known as Off the Block with Ross and Marissa following the end of former HouseGuest Jeff Schroeder's Big Brother Live Chat.
The last remaining HouseGuest is set to receive a prize of $500,000.
This season's main theme and twists centered on technology.
BB App Store
For the first three weeks, viewers were asked a series of questions about their opinions on the remaining HouseGuests. The HouseGuest who was named in the most overall answers was deemed the "top trending" HouseGuest of the week and earned a "Power App", which would give them an advantage in the game, while the HouseGuest who was answered the least was deemed "least trending" was given a "Crap App", which gave them a punishment. Once HouseGuests received an app, they were no longer eligible to receive one in the future.
|Week||Top trending||Power App||Least trending||Crap App||Punishment|
|1||Sam||Bonus Life||To be used immediately after a HouseGuest is evicted from the house, this power will give that HouseGuest a chance to return to the game via a competition. This power must be used in the first three evictions, or else the fourth evicted HouseGuest will automatically be given the chance to return.||Used||Faysal||Hamazon||The HouseGuest will routinely be given packages of ham, which they must consume on arrival. (As Faysal is Muslim, a vegetarian ham substitute was used instead.)|
|2||Tyler||The Cloud||The HouseGuest has the power to make themselves immune from nomination during one Nomination or Veto Ceremony of their choice over the following eight weeks.||Pending||Rachel||Yell!||For 24 hours, an angry reviewer was unleashed into the house at random times to loudly give the HouseGuest feedback on their game.|
|3||Bayleigh||Identity Theft||The HouseGuest can secretly replace the HoH's nominations with two of their own. This does not affect replacement nominations and can be used until eight players remain.||Not used||Haleigh||Read It!||Periodically throughout the week, the HouseGuest must wear a costume and read Hamlet in a Shakespearean accent. This punishment will continue until the entire play has been read.|
On Day 44, following Rachel's eviction, a new twist was unleashed on the HouseGuests called the "H@cker Competition". It lets one HouseGuest hack the game for a week. After the nominations, all of the HouseGuests compete in a competition at the same time in different rooms, making the winner anonymous to the other HouseGuests. The winner of the competition is able to "hack" the game in three different ways. First, they can replace one of the Head of Household's nominations and change it to someone of their choosing. Second, they get to select one of the three participants chosen for the Power of Veto competition. Finally, they can nullify one vote at the live eviction.

Controversies and criticisms
JC Mounduix received criticism after he was shown using an ice cream scooper on the genitals of his other HouseGuests. Mounduix later told fellow HouseGuest Kaycee Clark to open up her vagina, saying it "feels good".
Viewers questioned Angela Rummans and Rachel Swindler after they were caught on the live feeds making racist remarks, referencing fellow HouseGuest, Bayleigh Dayton. Rummans called her tan "ghetto", while Swindler compared her skin tone to Dayton's, who is African American. CBS later released a statement and warned Rummans and Swindler with future consequences.
Since the start of the live feeds, Kaitlyn Herman has been criticized from viewers for her feelings and actions towards several men in the Big Brother House, while being in a 5 year relationship outside of the house. In Week 3, Herman's then boyfriend released a statement on Twitter, stating that he wanted to distance himself from the show and situation.
Kaitlyn Herman and JC Mounduix both came under fire after they used n-word in separate occasions. Herman used the word as she was singing the lyrics of a Drake song. Mounduix used the word after fellow HouseGuest Bayleigh Dayton, who is African American, asked Mounduix if there is a "difference between a midget and a dwarf". Offended, Mounduix said that the word "midget" is a derogatory term and then compared it to the n-word. Many came to the defense of the two, saying that they didn't use the word towards someone.
During a live eviction episode, HouseGuest Brett Robinson called out Angie "Rockstar" Lantry in his eviction speech for "strategic purposes". Lantry responded by confronting Robinson in his face claiming that it was her daughter's birthday. Lantry later called Robinson a "rich, snobby, white-privileged-ass dude". Later that night, Lantry confronted Robinson with pots and pans during which she exclaimed that Robinson has a "micropenis". Upon confrontation, Lantry sat between Robinson's legs whom repeatedly asked her to get off of him.
JC Mounduix was criticized by fans after he asked Rachel Swindler if she was transgender, stating that she has "a big Adam's apple." Mounduix proceeded to feel Swindler's neck, but she told him to stop. Moments later, he began to touch Swindler's neck again before being stopped by her.
Viewers perceived some of Bayleigh Dayton's comments about Faysal "Fessy" Shafaat as being anti-Muslim. After Shafaat, a Muslim, complained about his in-house crush Haleigh Broucher talking about her past sexual experiences, Dayton claimed in private that Shafaat should "go find a virgin" and that he should "go to Pakistan and [get himself] one" because "that's what they do." Many viewers interpreted "they" as meaning Muslims.
During a conversation between Bayleigh Dayton and Angela "Rockstar" Lantry, Dayton claimed that Lantry was the only white person who she knew that didn't like white people. Dayton then said that Lantry dislikes "normal white people" more than she does. Days later, in a conversation with Haleigh Broucher, Dayton referred to her housemates as "crazy-ass white people." Many viewers saw Dayton's statements as racist.
