List of Big Brother (American TV series) episodes (2010–present)

Big Brother 21 is the twenty-first season of the CBS American reality television series Big Brother. It is based upon the Dutch series of the same name. The season premiered on June 25, 2019.[3] This season, sixteen new HouseGuests competed for the $500,000 grand prize. Each week in the game, HouseGuests competed in a series of competitions to win power and safety, they then voted to eliminate, or "evict", one of their own until there were only two remaining. In the finale episode, previous HouseGuests voted on who they thought should win the game. The HouseGuest who received the most votes would be declared the winner. The season contained forty episodes and concluded with a 90-minute season finale on September 25, 2019, where Jackson Michie was revealed to be the winner of Big Brother 21 in a 6–3 jury vote over Holly Allen.[4][5] Nicole Anthony won the public vote for America's Favorite HouseGuest and the $25,000 that came along with the title.[6]

In May 2019, CBS announced that the series had been renewed through its twenty-second season[4][7][8]

Format[edit]

Big Brother depicts a group of contestants, known as HouseGuests, that live inside a custom-built two story house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and over 113 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. The HouseGuests are sequestered in the Big Brother House with no contact with the outside world. During their stay the HouseGuests share their thoughts on events and other houseguests inside a private room referred to as the Diary Room.[9][10] Each week, the HouseGuests compete in several competitions in order to win power and safety inside the house. At the start of each week, the HouseGuests compete in the Head of Household (abbreviated as "HoH") competition. The winner of the HoH competition is immune from eviction and will select two HouseGuests to be nominated for eviction. The winner of the HoH competition is immune from eviction and will select two HouseGuests to be nominated for eviction. Then six HouseGuests are selected to compete in the Power of Veto (abbreviated as "PoV") competition: the reigning HoH and the nominees are guaranteed to play with the remaining slots being given to other HouseGuests selected by random draw. The winner of the PoV competition wins the right to either revoke the nomination of one of the nominated HouseGuests or leave them as is. If the veto winner uses this power, the HoH must immediately nominate another HouseGuest for eviction. The PoV winner is also immune from being named as the replacement nominee.

On eviction night, all HouseGuests must vote to evict one of the nominees, with the exception of the nominees and the Head of Household. This compulsory vote is conducted in the privacy of the Diary Room. In the event of a tie the Head of Household will cast the tie-breaking vote in front of all the HouseGuests in the living room. The nominee with the most votes is evicted from the house. The last nine evicted HouseGuests, referred to as the Jury, are sequestered in a separate house following their eviction and ultimately decide the winner of the season. The Jury are not allowed to watch the show except for competitions and ceremonies that include all of the remaining HouseGuests. They are not shown any Diary Room interviews or any footage that may include strategy or details regarding nominations. The viewing public is able to award an additional prize of $25,000 to their favorite HouseGuest of the season. All evicted HouseGuests are eligible to win this award except for those who either voluntary leave or forcibly removed for rule-breaking.

HouseGuests[edit]

On June 10, 2019, CBS reported that the cast would be revealed on June 17, 2019 on Big Brother live feeds to viewers with a CBS All Access subscription.[11] Former Big Brother HouseGuest Jeff Schroeder returned to host pre-season interviews with the cast after being replaced by Celebrity Big Brother alum Ross Mathews for the previous season.[12] While not intended as a twist to the game, some HouseGuests have pre-existing relationships with each other, such as Christie and Tommy (Christie dated Tommy's aunt for seven years) and Holly and Kathryn (acquaintances who have competed in beauty pageants).

CBS announced that Big Brother had been renewed for a twenty-first and twenty-second season on May 15, 2019.[4] CBS later announced on May 20, 2019 that the twenty-first season was set to premiere on June 25, 2019.[15] Unnamed insiders close to the production of the show previously cast doubt if Julie Chen Moonves would return to host following sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former CBS CEO Les Moonves.[16] Chen Moonves, however, returned for the second season of Celebrity Big Brother and it was later announced that she would return as host of the main series as well.[17] Despite not having an official renewal announcement from CBS at the time, casting for the season was open until April 2019.[18] Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan returned as executive producers for the series which is produced by Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.[19] The season featured an initial timeslot change from previous seasons; new episodes aired on a Sunday/Tuesday/Wednesday schedule through the first six episodes before returning to a traditional Sunday/Wednesday/Thursday schedule as in previous seasons.[20] The 24/7 internet live feeds also returned with a CBS All Access subscription following the two-night season premiere on June 26.[21] Big Brother: After Dark returned on Pop for its fourteenth season overall and fifth season on Pop following the two-night premiere on June 26 or June 27, depending on viewers local time zones.[22] Off the Block with Ross and Marissa did not return for a second season as an aftershow interviewing HouseGuests after their eviction.[22] Replacing Off the Block, Big Brother host Chen-Moonves hosted extended interviews with the evicted HouseGuests from outside the house.

Casting[edit]

Kassting, Inc. returned to provide casting services for a twentieth consecutive season since Big Brother 2, with Robyn Kass serving as the casting director.[23][24]

Filming[edit]

Taken from the entry way of the house, the camp theme in the house can be seen from the hanging lanterns and the tree set piece. The ladder leading to the upstairs lounge, "treehouse" or "skybridge" is on the right. In the background, the living room featuring the LED light illuminated 23-foot trianglar window can be seen.

As with previous seasons, the program is filmed at CBS Studios, soundstage 18 in Studio City, California in a custom-built two-story house.[25][26] The House is equipped with 94 high-definition cameras and over 113 microphones to monitor and record the HouseGuests.[27][28] The living room, three bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, bathroom and lounge room are located on the first floor.[29] The Head of Household bedroom and bathroom and an additional lounge area known as the "Sky Bridge" are located on the second floor.[29] The second floor is accessible by a ladder located in the entry way or a spiral staircase located in the kitchen next to the sliding glass doors that lead to the backyard.[29] The backyard area features outdoor amenities for the HouseGuests.[29] The house also features two diary rooms where the HouseGuests can privately share thoughts or send requests to producers of the series.[30]

Production design[edit]

The theme for this season is a summer camp called "Camp B.B."[31] The house, competitions and twists were designed around the camp theme. Entertainment Tonight showed the first look at the house with Kevin Frazier during their episode on the night of June 20, 2019.[32] Entertainment Tonight then released a sneak peek of the house through a brief tour on their website on June 21.[1] Meanwhile, a full house tour with Chen Moonves and other photos were released through Big Brother's and CBS' social media outlets including IGTV/Instagram,[33][34] Twitter[35][36] and Facebook.[37][38] Big Brother 21 house theme matched the season's overall theme and received a camp theme; Production Designer Scott Storey designed the house's features.[39] The living room features a birch-wood coffee table and a large and a 23-foot triangular window illuminated by LED lights.[40] The first bedroom features a "sleeping under the stars" theme and includes two double-beds and the exterior of a camper.[41] The camper, is only a facade into the second bedroom which features three double-beds and is assumed to be that of a camp counselors bedroom.[41] The third and final downstairs bedroom is a sports-themed bedroom primarily based on archery.[41] In the kitchen, many of the appliances have been redone in an attempt to blend them in with the rest of the theme, with an electronic campfire added to the center of the formal dining table.[42] The downstairs lounge area received a boat theme, while the bathroom received a boat house-like theme.[43] The upstairs lounge area, for the first time in the series history, is also accessible by a ladder from the entryway and has been updated to resemble a tree house; the Head of Household bedroom and bathroom have been changed to resemble a Moroccan-style bedroom and is expected to resemble glamping.[44] The backyard features a pool with kayaks and an attached hot tub, lawn chairs surround the backyard which also features a pool table and a washer and dryer, workout equipment, outdoor lounge areas, a hammock and a mini-fridge.[45]

Prizes[edit]

The last remaining HouseGuest, Jackson Michie, received $500,000.[46] The runner-up of the season, Holly Allen, received $50,000 while the HouseGuest deemed America's Favorite Player, Nicole Anthony, received $25,000.[47] As part of a promotion for new CBS series Love Island, Sam Smith won a trip to Fiji in a Power of Veto competition.[48] During another Power of Veto competition, Kathryn Dunn received a trip to Hawaii and Nick Maccarone was awarded $5,000.[49] During a surprise luxury competition in Week 12, Michie won $10,000.

As the HouseGuests began to settle in to the House, Julie informed them that they would vote for a Camp Director, who would be safe from the first eviction and have unprecedented power in the game. Some HouseGuests campaigned for Camp Director while others did not wish to have the role. In the backyard, each HouseGuest voted for who they thought should be the Camp Cirector. Michie won with ten votes. Julie then informed Michie that he would be forced to banish four people from the game. The four banished people would then compete against each other head-to-head with three of the four re-entering the game while the fourth would remain banished and be out of the game.

The first HouseGuest to correctly identify all three items will win. Cliff, Isabella, Kathryn, Nicole and Ovi competed in the first week. At the end of the third round, Ovi correctly identified all three smells and won the competition.

  • Head of Household ("Power Shot"): HouseGuests take turn throwing arrows underhand at a target with points. The HouseGuest whose arrow lands on the highest point ring wins the Head of Household; however, if someone does not want to be the HoH, then they could aim at two red dots at the top of the board, one earning them $5,000 and the other one earning them safety for the week.

Shown in a flashback, the full story of the chaotic, yet unsuccessful effort to flip the vote to evict Kathryn was explained. The fight ultimately ended up with Christie and Michie yelling at each other over a "secret trio" of Kathryn, Holly and Michie. As a result, the Six Shooters alliance fractured into smaller alliances of duos and trios. Kathryn, who had been affiliated with the Six Shooters alliance, was cast out. Cliff, Nick, Nicole and Jessica overheard the fight; Kathryn joined them after being outcast.

  • Head of Household ("Camp Expo"):[b] Holly gave the HouseGuests true or false questions about the pictures that they had just studied.

In the end, Jack and Michie won a punishment, Tommy won a costume, Kathryn won a trip to Hawaii, Nick won $5,000 and Jessica won the Golden Power of Veto.

After all four boards were knocked down, they finished the competition. Michie finished first and received immunity. Analyse finished second and received a punishment. This meant Christie did not finish and thus lost the competition, becoming a special third nominee.

Nick promises to Tommy and Christie that if he wins the Power of Veto, he would take Christie off the block. Analyse receives her punishment: she has to wear a chicken costume. On Day 52, Tommy nominated Cliff and Kathryn for eviction, alongside Christie.

The last HouseGuest to make it to the top (or if a HouseGuest got the answer wrong) would be eliminated from the competition. The last HouseGuest standing would win the Power of Veto. After it came down to Nick and Tommy, Tommy beat Nick up the slide and won the Veto and, on Day 55, took Christie off the block; however, since Christie was a special third nominee, no replacement nomination was made. Therefore, Cliff and Kathryn became the final nominees.

On Day 65, by a vote of 5–1, with Nick casting the only vote to evict Christie, Analyse was evicted from the House and became the third jury member. As a part of Prank Week, on Day 64, HouseGuests had to stay up during the night to listen to an exorbitant number of bird names and sounds as a joke to make the HouseGuests think that was for the Head of Household competition, but before the comp, they were informed about Prank Week and that the competition had nothing to do with bird sounds and names.

  • Head of Household ("Prank Shot"): HouseGuests had to roll a ball on a plank extending over number slots from 1–50. As the numbers get bigger, the plank got narrower.

Notes[edit]

  • ^Note 1 :      On Day 1, the HouseGuests were tasked with voting for a Camp Director. The HouseGuests were told that the Camp Director would receive Immunity for the first week but would have to put the games of other HouseGuests in jeopardy. Michie was elected as Camp Director. He was tasked with "banishing" four HouseGuests, who would compete to stay in the house. Michie chose to banish Cliff, David, Jessica and Kemi. David lost the competition. As he was immune, Michie was ineligible to compete in the first Head of Household Competition.
  • ^Note 2 :      On Day 15, Camp Comeback was introduced. David returned to the house from sequester and the next three evicted HouseGuests (Ovi, Kemi and Cliff) remained in the house after getting voted out of the game. After Cliff's eviction, the Comeback HouseGuests competed to re-enter the game. Cliff won the competition, while David, Ovi and Kemi were all evicted.
  • ^Note 3 :      Week 7 featured the America's Field Trip competition. Analyse, Christie and Michie were voted by America to compete. As the winner of the competition, Michie was immune for the week. For finishing last, Christie was nominated as a third nominee (denoted in bold). Christie's nomination did not require a replacement if the veto was used to save her.
  • ^Note 4 : Week 9 was Prank Week and featured the America's Prankster power. America voted for Nick to be America's Prankster and took half of Holly's Head of Household power by anonymously nominating one HouseGuest at the Nomination Ceremony (denoted in bold) and naming a replacement nominee if the Power of Veto is used on his nominee. Nick was not given immunity with his power and could be nominated by Holly.
  • ^Note 5 : This week was a double eviction week. Following Jessica's eviction, the remaining HouseGuests played a week's worth of games—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 finale, the Jury members voted for which finalist should win Big Brother.

Reception[edit]

Big Brother 21 was criticized negatively by critics and fans due to the HouseGuests' discriminatory tendencies.[90] Professor of African American studies and the UCLA Dean of Social Sciences, Darnell Hunt, stated, "Race is the central axis of social relationships. Even when, in public, we try to deny its significance, it creeps through in unexpected ways. When people are in a house like that 24 hours a day under those conditions, it's difficult to hide an inconvenient truth about American culture and society. The camera is the great equalizer."[91] However, the way CBS handled the situations was somewhat praised by viewers as they dedicated a time during the live finale to address them and let the HouseGuests explain themselves.[92][93] Justin Carriero of The Young Folks wrote, "These HouseGuests got away with a lot and they avoided the blowback by being in jury, so they had no idea what storm was heading their way. They needed to know what they did and how the public viewed them." He ended up rating the finale an eight on a scale from one to ten.[94] Overall, the season was criticized for its non-diverse casting, leniency with specific rules like Have-Not rules, and deceptive editing of the episodes compared to the events shown on the 24/7 Live Feeds.[95]

This season was the least watched and lowest rated season of the series with about a 20% decrease in viewers and 25% decrease in demographics from last year.[8] The season ended with an average viewership per episode of 4.38 million, over one million fewer than the previous lowest. Despite the drastic decrease in ratings, Big Brother was renewed for its twenty-second and will premiere in the summer of 2020.[96]

Racial optics[edit]

Following the two-night season premiere, HouseGuest Jackson Michie received the "Camp Director" power and was required to choose four HouseGuests to banish.[97] Michie chose David Alexander and Kemi Fakunle, the season's only two black HouseGuests, Jessica Milagros, a Latina plus-size model, and Cliff Hogg, the oldest person in the house.[98][99] But, other viewers suggested that Michie only picked Fakunle due to lack of communication and that Alexander, Milagros, and Hogg were only picked because they competed against him for the position of Camp Director.[100]

Big Brother is a reality show about a group of people who live together at times, the Houseguests may reveal prejudices and other beliefs that CBS does not condone. Views or opinions expressed by Houseguests are those of the individuals speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS. Viewer discretion is advised.

CBS disclaimer reportedly appearing more since the incident[101]

Once the Live Feeds began, Matthews started making vicious and violent remarks about fellow HouseGuests Kemi Fakunle, Ovi Kabir, and Jessica Milagros, behind their backs.[102][103][104] Matthews was warned by production about comments made and to prevent further such comments.[105] Many of his comments were addressed in episode 20 during his post-eviction interview with Julie Chen Moonves where he denied racism being behind any of the comments, though he did apologize for his actions that were deemed offensive.[106]

Week 3 incident[edit]

During Week 3, an incident involving the dominant "Gr8ful" alliance, which was partially shown during episode 10, was sharply criticized by the viewing audience.[107] The incident started when Anthony confided in Isabella Wang, telling her that the majority alliance, spearheaded by Matthews and Michie, would come after Wang and Nick Maccarone, but Wang, who was included in this majority alliance with Maccarone, immediately told the group about it. The alliance swiftly denied Anthony's idea that they would target the couple despite earlier conversations where they discussed targeting them. The group proceeded to speak very negatively of Anthony.[108][109] This incident was brought back up during the live finale to give the HouseGuests a chance to talk about the matter.

Have-Not cheating[edit]

Along with three others, Hogg, the then Head of Household, named Jackson Michie to become a Have-Not.[110][111] Despite being named as a Have-Not, Michie was seen on the Live Feeds breaking the Have-Not rules by eating prohibited food behind the shower wall out of camera view.[112] Michie received no punishment normally given to HouseGuests who break the Have-Not rules.[95] After this incident, Have-Nots went unseen for the remainder of the season.[113]

Statements from CBS[edit]

"Well, in the case of Big Brother, a producer—we learned that a producer, in an attempt to get a soundbite from one of the houseguests overstepped. That producer was reprimanded, received unconscious bias training—as did all the producers on the show—and we don't believe that an incident like that will happen again."

Thom Sherman, CBS Executive responding to the incident in question[114]

At the 2019 Television Critics Association, CBS executives were questioned about diversity and racism issues on Big Brother.[115] In an open interview with CBS executives, Big Brother was accused of giving "contestants of color unfair cuts or early eliminations" as well as editing out comments by HouseGuests that have been interpreted as racist.[116][117] CBS executives defended editors of the show stating that it's difficult to edit days worth of content into 40 minutes.[118] CBS executives also stated that they would "closely reexamine Big Brother 21 and see if we can do better next year."[119]
