Big Brother is a reality game show, based on an originally Dutch television series of the same name, that follows a group of contestants, known as houseguests, who compete in challenges and create alliances. The houseguests join a Discord and have respective diary rooms, which began in the third season. The contestants are competing for a grand prize, with competitions and evictions determining who will win the show. This version of Big Brother is based off of the United States version of the show.
Unlike other major serial game shows, there are no sessions and the game is held on one's own time.
The contestants, referred to as "houseguests," take part in several compulsory challenges that determine who will win luxuries and power in the house.
At the start of each week, the houseguests compete in the Head of Household (HoH) competition. The winner of the HoH competition will select two houseguests to be nominated for eviction. After a houseguest becomes HoH, they are ineligible to take part in the next Head of Household competition.
Each episode, six houseguests are selected to compete in the Power of Veto (PoV) competition: the reigning HoH, their two nominees, and three 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, all houseguests vote to evict one of the two nominees, with the exception of the nominees and the Head of Household, who is only allowed to vote in the event of a tie, and in that case, must do so publicly. This compulsory vote is conducted in the privacy of a private message. The nominee with the majority of votes will be evicted from the house, after which the cycle begins again. The Head of Household may compete for HoH again only in the final episode.
Houseguests may voluntarily leave the house at any time and those who break the rules may be expelled from the house. Some evicted houseguests will form the Big Brother jury, and vote for the winner.
Starting in Big Brother 3, there was a Discord created for announcements, diary rooms, the jury house, and general discussion.
Big Brother Mini
Big Brother Mini is the same style as the normal Big Brother, but is shorter and is paced faster.
Head of Household
The Head of Household competition is held at the beginning of each episode. Various competitions may have punished or reward contestants.
Power of Veto
The Power of Veto (also known as the Golden Power of Veto or simply Veto) allows a nominated houseguest to remove a nominee from the block or remove themselves from the block, if they are a nominee. If a nominee is changed, the HoH must immediately nominate a replacement nominee. The veto winner is exempt from being put up as a replacement nominee.

- 1. ^ This count does not include the spin-off seasons that did not finish.
- 2. ^ a b Big Brother MRT: Season 1 was most likely going to be held in the non-American format of the game and therefore, the host, yeamantor132, is not considered the original creator of the show.
- 3. ^ The season was set to be renamed to Big Brother 3 if successful, however, it was canceled after a week.
