Season 17

This summer's "BB Takeover" twist will feature a surprise guest each week who will appear on the show to announce a new twist into the game. Expecting the unexpected will be taken to new heights as Houseguests attempt to stay in the game amid the ever-changing twists that shake up life inside the house on a weekly basis. A special guest will appear on each night of the two-night premiere and reveal twists that could affect the cast and viewers.

This season, the Houseguests will live in a modern steel beach house that's the largest yet, with the addition of the "Sky Bridge," which adds 155 square feet of living space. Featuring a floor comprised of 12 clear Plexiglas panels, the bridge is not for the faint of heart, with its clear view to the first floor below. Also, Houseguests will enjoy the towering 22-foot-tall steel Wave Wall made of custom curved steel, wood and Plexiglas in the living room, which required the ceiling to be raised from 12 to 24 feet.

The details on the walls throughout the house will show "half-tone" finishing, similar to a comic book illustration, and one of the bedrooms will be dedicated to this edgy pop art style. While the downstairs area evokes the sea, upstairs is all about the sky. The Head of Household suite is essentially a skybox with transparent flooring and clouds everywhere, where the HOH will feel like they're literally floating on cloud nine. The beach theme continues in the bedrooms, with one filled with coral and driftwood and the other capturing the magic of the sea at night with the vibe of an upscale club.

The "Big Brother 17" contestants include Audrey Middleton, Austin "Judas" Matelson, Becky Burgess, Big Brother, Clay Honeycutt, Da'Vonne Rogers, Jace Agolli, James Huling, Jason Roy, John McGuire, Liz Nolan, Meg Maley, Shelli Poole, Steve Moses and Vanessa Rousso.

"Big Brother 17" follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 80 HD cameras — four more than last year — and more than 100 microphones recording their every move, 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

"Big Brother 2015" is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.


Season 16

The new edition will be its most "twisted" season ever. In the first twist, two Houseguests will win the coveted role of "Head of Household" (HOH) each week, which still comes with special privileges, including a separate suite inside the house. Each HOH will have the responsibility of nominating two fellow Houseguests for eviction every week; however, for the first time on the series, earning HOH will not guarantee one's safety in the game for the week.

With the second twist, fans will have a unique opportunity to significantly influence the game from home with a new interactive element called "Team America."

In addition, this season of "Big Brother" will introduce an entirely new high-stakes competition, "Battle of the Block," which will dramatically shift the power in the house each week.

This season, the "Big Brother" Houseguests will live in a whimsical urban tree house-themed dwelling. The living room features a 20-foot-high wood tree sculpture, and wood panels that give the illusion of peering out into the world from inside the tree. The theme continues with the dining room's branch-bound chairs and the kitchen's butcher block island made from thick slabs of eucalyptus trees. Nestled above the living room is an actual tree house shack where the Houseguests can play chess. The Head of Household suite includes a giant bird's nest for the bed and a wall lined with nearly 1,000 bird houses. Also, the bedrooms' décor is based on the classical elements earth, wind and fire with the bathroom's theme being water.

The "Big Brother 16" contestants include Amber Borzotra, Brittany Martinez, Caleb Reynolds, Christine Brecht, Cody Calafiore, Derrick Levasseur, Devin Shepherd, Donny Thompson, Frankie Grande, Hayden Voss, Jocasta Odom, Joey Van Pelt, Nicole Franzel, Paola Shea, Victoria Rafaeli and Zach Rance.

Season 15

Season 15 will unleash two new twists into the stylish, redesigned house this summer that will influence the strategic landscape of the game. The first twist is a series' first: instead of two Houseguests being nominated each week for eviction, as in past seasons, contestants will nominate three in this summer's edition. This process will be further explained during the season premiere.

The second twist will allow "Big Brother 15" viewers to play a crucial role in the game by casting votes for the Houseguest they feel is playing the best game. The Houseguest who receives the most votes will be anointed that week's, "Big Brother MVP." The full scope of the MVP's secret power will be revealed during the season premiere.

America will start casting their votes for this season's first "Big Brother MVP" before the Houseguests even enter the game, beginning with a pre-premiere vote following CBS's cast announcement of the new Houseguests.

The mid-century style of the "Big Brother" house continues on host Julie Chen's newly remodeled set.

Season 12

For the first time in the history of the series, one contestant will not be playing to win the half million dollar prize. Instead, this houseguest will play the role of the "Big Brother" Saboteur, whose sole mission will be to disrupt the lives of their fellow houseguests.

Upon moving into the house on premiere night, houseguests will discover that one of them is not really there to win the game, but rather to sabotage their fellow players. While the saboteur's identity will remain a secret to the houseguests, America will learn his/her identity during the first live show. If the Saboteur is able to make it to the halfway point of the game, a financial reward awaits.

This season, houseguests will be surrounded by an Art Deco themed "Playground by the Shore." The "Big Brother" house will be accented with palm tree groves and walls of glass, while the exterior of the house is lifted straight from Miami's Ocean Avenue. The Art Deco theme continues in the living room with ultra-modern furniture, white accents, glass tables and glass along the walls. The Palm Bedroom features crisp white beds and neon green linens and pays homage to vintage Miami. The Sunset Bedroom, located in the rear of the house, is a glow of warm orange and bronze-hued decor where the walls are lined with curved glass blocks that were custom built for the "Big Brother" house.

Once again this season, houseguests on the losing side of select competitions will be banished to the "Have Not Room," where luxury and comfort are non-existent.

Season 11

CBS's "Big Brother 11" asks, "What group did you fit into in high school?" That is the question 12 strangers will face when they move into the "Big Brother 11" house and learn that they will be "kickin it old school" this summer, high school to be exact. The House Guests will be shocked to learn that they will be playing the game in one of four familiar high school cliques: popular, athletes, brainiacs and off beats. They will compete for food, safety from eviction and luxury prizes as part of their clique.

They will also be surprised to discover that a mystery 13th Houseguest is coming to the "Big Brother 11" house, to join the game and give an advantage to one of the cliques.

The houseguests will live and compete in a house that has been transformed into a mean, green, eco-friendly living machine. The interior walls of the house are covered with a reconstituted wood panel product made from re-claimed wood flakes. This eco-friendly material reduced the amount of new lumber used to build the "Big Brother 11" house. For the first time ever, the Houseguests will be made fully aware of the amount of waste they create, and will be required to sort, recycle and place all food items in an outdoor manual compost center, as well as an indoor automatic composter. The Head of Household Suite feels like seaside in Big Sur, California, where actual driftwood hangs on the copper patina tinted walls while a working waterfall, using recycled water, trickles over stacked stone to serve as a headboard. Zebra wood columns (all faux wood) press into the room framing a contemporary window that overlooks the "surf."


Season 10

The CBS summer reality series, "Big Brother," returns to its classic original format for its 10th season. "Big Brother 10" follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones that are recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the Houseguests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months on "Big Brother 10," the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000. This season on "Big Brother 10," Houseguests will move into a brand new, all-American home with a more traditional look that is complete with a rocking chair on the front porch, Victorian stenciled windows and a lush flower garden. Like the contestants who will inhabit it, each room has a different style and flair, including a groovy "Road to Woodstock" bedroom, a rad '80s "Punk Room" and a classic retro 1950s style kitchen. Additionally, the house comes equipped with a Jacuzzi and swimming pool in the backyard.

Season 9

"Big Brother 9: Til Death Do You Part" sports a new creative twist that will play out during the first-ever winter edition, which premieres Tuesday, February 12.

This season marks other "Big Brother" firsts, including the first-ever all-single cast and the most Houseguests in "Big Brother" history.

When this group of 16 singles enters the house on "Big Brother 9," they will be told they are being matched up with their "soul mate," a stranger who may prove to be their true love or their worst nightmare. Whether there is a love connection or not, once paired up, the Houseguests' life in the game depends on their partner. On "Big Brother 9" they must strategize, plot and scheme together as a couple for a chance at the prize. These "lovebirds" will live together as a couple on "Big Brother 9," meaning they will sleep in the same bed, hold Head of Household as a couple, be nominated for eviction as a pair, and if the time comes, say their goodbyes together upon eviction.

Season 8

"Big Brother 8" will follow the relationships and conflicts of players who live together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the houseguests on "Big Brother 8" will vote each other out, and in the end, the last remaining houseguest will receive the grand prize.

As always, Big Brother houseguests should expect the unexpected. The twist for "Big Brother 8" will shock and most likely change the way some houseguests would have played the game had certain people not walked through the door.

On the premiere night of "Big Brother 8," houseguests will learn that some of them will be sharing the house with an enemy, a rival or someone with whom they unfinished business—in short, someone from their past whom they had hoped they would never see again or someone with whom there is an extreme amount of tension.
