Inspiration Big Brother (U.S. TV Series)

Big Brother was 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 competed in challenges and create alliances. The houseguests joined a Discord and have respective diary rooms, which began in the third season. The contestants competed for a grand prize, with competitions and evictions determining who won the show. This version of Big Brother was based off of the United States version of the show.

Unlike other major serial game shows, there were no sessions and the game is held on one's own time.

The franchise was officially announced as ended on November 22, 2020 as no future season was planned for the foreseeable future due to a lack of free time.

Format

Main series

The contestants, referred to as "houseguests," took part in several compulsory challenges that determined who won luxuries and power in the house.

At the start of each week, the houseguests competed in the Head of Household (HoH) competition. The winner of the HoH competition selected two houseguests to be nominated for eviction. After a houseguest became HoH, they were ineligible to take part in the next Head of Household competition.

Each episode, six houseguests were 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 won the right to either revoke the nomination of one of the nominated houseguests or leave them as is; if the veto winner used this power, the HoH had to immediately nominate another houseguest for eviction. The PoV winner was also immune from being named as the replacement nominee.

On eviction, all houseguests voted to evict one of the two nominees, with the exception of the nominees and the Head of Household, who was only allowed to vote in the event of a tie and, in that case, must do so publicly. This compulsory vote was conducted in the privacy of a private message. The nominee with the majority of votes was be evicted from the house, after which the cycle begins again. The Head of Household could compete for HoH again only in the final episode.

Houseguests could voluntarily leave the house at any time and those who break the rules may have been expelled from the house. Some evicted houseguests formed the Big Brother jury and voted 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 was the same style as the normal Big Brother, but was shorter and was paced faster.

Competitions

The Power of Veto symbol.

Head of Household

The Head of Household competition was 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) allowed a nominated houseguest to remove a nominee from the block or remove themselves from the block if they were a nominee. If a nominee is changed, the HoH had to immediately nominate a replacement nominee. The Veto winner was exempt from being put up as a replacement nominee.

Notes

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.
