Main Twists

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 House Guests. The House Guest who was named in the most overall answers was deemed the "top trending" House Guest of the week and earned a "Power App", which would give them an advantage in the game, while the House Guest 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
Name Ability Status
1 Sam Bonus Life To be used immediately after a HouseGuest is evicted from the house, this power will give that House Guest 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 House Guest will automatically be given the chance to return. Used
(by default)
Faysal Hamazon The House Guest 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 House Guest has the power to make themselves immune from nomination during one Nomination or Veto Ceremony of their choice over the following eight weeks. Not used Rachel Yell! For 24 hours, an angry reviewer was unleashed into the house at random times to loudly give the House Guest feedback on their game.
3 Bayleigh Identity Theft The House Guest 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 House Guest must wear a costume and read Hamlet in a Shakespearean accent. This punishment will continue until the entire play has been read.

H@cker Competition

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

Joseph Charles "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".[58]

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.[59]

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.[60]

Kaitlyn Herman and Joseph Charles "JC" Mounduix both came under fire after they used the n-word in separate occasions.[61] 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.[62][63] Many came to the defense of the two, saying that they didn't use the word towards someone.[64] Herman later apologized for using the word on an Instagram live stream.[65]

During a live eviction episode, HouseGuest Brett Robinson called out Angela "Rockstar" Lantry in his eviction speech for "strategic purposes".[66] Lantry responded by confronting Robinson in his face claiming that it was her daughter's birthday.[67] Lantry later called Robinson a "rich, snobby, white-privileged-ass dude".[68] Later that night, Lantry confronted Robinson with pots and pans[69] during which she exclaimed that Robinson has a "micropenis".[70] Upon confrontation, Lantry sat between Robinson's legs whom repeatedly asked her to get off of him.[71]

Joseph Charles "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.[72]

Viewers perceived some of Bayleigh Dayton's comments about Faysal 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.[73]

During a conversation between Dayton and 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.[74] Days later, in a conversation with Haleigh Broucher, Dayton referred to her housemates as "crazy-ass white people."[75] Many viewers saw Dayton's statements as racist.[76]

Joseph Charles "JC" Mounduix was criticized by both fans and his fellow housemates for making light of the #MeToo movement after making jokes at the movement's expense.[77]

Joseph Charles "JC" Mounduix was once again involved in two separate sexual misconduct incidents in which he was accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault.[78] While sleeping in the same bed, Mounduix was seen caressing Tyler Crispen’s arm, face, and chest, as well as kissing his armpit while Crispen was sleeping.[79] The following morning Crispen stated to Kaycee Clark "I’m sleeping alone tonight — JC is not sleeping with me".[80] Mounduix explained his version by stating that he was "comforting Crispen who was having nightmares".[81] Later, Mounduix opened the toilet door while HouseGuest Haleigh Broucher was using it.[82] Broucher repeatedly asked Mounduix to close the door whom refused and tied the door open.[83] Broucher then yelled for assistance from production[84] and later filed a complaint with executive producer Allison Grodner.[85] The producers later released a statement saying that neither Crispen nor Broucher filed official complaints and that the two had expressed to them that they "did not feel threatened or unsafe by Mounduix's actions."[78]

During a live eviction speech, HouseGuest Scottie Salton made sexual and vulgar comments towards HouseGuests Tyler Crispen and Angela Rummans. He hinted that Crispen received oral sex from Rummans, which got censored out by CBS.[86]

Haleigh Broucher was criticized by both fans and her fellow houseguests after making a joke about disabled people.[87] During a conversation with Tyler Crispen and Joseph "JC" Mounduix, Broucher opened a fortune cookie that read, "Nothing can stop you from reaching your goals."[88] After reading the quote, she responded by saying "That is not true because if you are paralyzed, you cannot reach anything."[87] Crispen was quick to call her out, telling Broucher that it was "the worst thing [he had] ever heard [her] say".[89] Crispen then told Broucher that she needed "to rephrase" what she had just said, to which Mounduix added that he had seen disabled people achieve their goals.[87]

On finale night, Swaggy C, proposed to contestant Bayleigh Dayton. This sparked controversy among rumours that she got pregnant while in the Big Brother House. They later confirmed in a video that while in the house, Bayleigh did get pregnant but she suffered a miscarriage.

Uncertain future

The American adaptation of Big Brother has aired on CBS since its inception on July 5, 2000 with Julie Chen as host. Following two articles published by The New Yorker by Ronan Farrow in July and September 2018 where several women accused Chen's husband Les Moonves of harassment, intimidation, and sexual misconduct, effective September 9, 2018, Moonves departed CBS Corporation as President, Chairman and CEO with Joseph Ianniello appointed as President and Acting CEO. In response to the claims against him, Moonves released a statement denying the allegations.[93] After the first article was published, Chen released a statement on Twitter in July defending her husband.[94]

While Chen was initially confirmed to return to the ninth season of her other CBS show The Talk, she was absent from the season premiere that aired on September 10, 2018. Chen issued a statement where she was taking a few days off, but would continue with Big Brother. Chen's first television appearance since Moonves' departure was the live eviction on September 13, 2018, where she closed out the episode with "From outside the Big Brother house... I'm Julie Chen Moonves, good night."[95] The new sign-off broke with an established pattern that Chen has used in the past on Big Brother and showcased her support for her husband, while it received a mix response from fans and viewers on Twitter.[96][97] Chen subsequently announced her departure from The Talk in a pre-recorded segment that aired on the September 18, 2018 episode where she stood outside the Big Brother house. Chen will continue to host Big Brother.[98]

The twentieth season had been confirmed since August 10, 2016 as part of a two-year renewal between CBS and Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.[99] Celebrity Big Brother was renewed for a second season on May 12, 2018 during CBS' annual upfront for the 2018–19 television season.[100] Speculation on the status of the show intensified after the departure of Moonves from CBS, with fans of the show and former HouseGuests began spreading the hashtag #SaveBBUSA in an attempt to get the program renewed.[101] Unnamed insiders close to the production of the show have cast doubt if Chen would return to host potential future installments if CBS renews the show.[102] In an article from US Weekly, an insider noted that former HouseGuests Will Kirby, Ross Mathews, and Big Brother Canada host Arisa Cox have been mentioned as potential replacements in the event that Chen does not to return, while TMZ reported that Chen will continue with the show if the network decides to renew it.[103][104]

However, despite the show's uncertain future, CBS began accepting online applications for a twenty-first season on September 20, 2018.[9]
