House

The house pictures were revealed on May 5th,2015, revealing a "Mad Men" 60's style house. The house feature a kitchen with a gold aesthetic, with the living room being seen in the centre of the house, featuring a large orang circular seating area that replicated the Big Brother eye. The bedroom of the house was located next to the living room and featured 4 double beds and six singular beds. The bedroom also featured a large dressing room and a vanity mirror.

The house's bathroom was made largely out of dark wood, featuring a rocky glass shower and a large bath, that had an aquatic wall. The BB16 garden featured a more copper look, with a garden seating area and a larger pool than that of the previous series and has it's own island. The garden was also extended to feature a set of stairs that led up to a den, that was called "The Sky Room".


Twists

  • Cast Revealed Before Launch: For the first time in series history, the housemates were revealed to the viewing public via the Big Brother website before the series began. The reason was to fit with the time theme, a countdown began two days before the cast was revealed.
  • Four In, Four Out: On Day 18, the originally nominated housemates were informed that by receiving the most nominations that they were deemed to be immune. Instead, all other housemates were put up for eviction. Later four housemates were evicted and four housemates entered to replace them.

Prize Money History

Remaining Reason for Change +/-
£150,000 Starting Amount
£134,100 Housemates had to race to press a button to stop the cash countdown, in doing so, they won a spot in the final –£15,900
£48,400 Punishment for talking during nominations –£85,700
£45,900 Joel purchased a pizza from Big Brother –£2,500
£45,900 Jack negotiated for football scores, a fitting suit and Um Bongo, but later changed his mind –£4,000
£40,900 Nick bidded the highest to save himself from eviction and won a spot in the final, by doing so Chole was the only available housemate to face eviction –£5,000
£45,900 Sam's "WIN" ball in the tombola earned the Housemates £5,000, however they missed out on a further £20,000 by choosing letters from home rather than the cash +£5,000
£46,100 Harry Amelia and Nick signed a restraining order meaning they could not communicate or be in the same room until further notice +£200
£48,200 Chloe, Cristian and Jack competed in a task to eat a hot chilli. Cristian earned £2,000, Chloe earned £95 whilst Jack bagged £5 +£2,100
£48,300 Housemates resisted takeaway food +£100
£51,300 Housemates correctly guessed answers from a viewer voted poll +£3,000
£51,100 The Housemates had a chance to buy back their suitcases in an auction, only Jack and Sam took advantage paying £100 each –£200
£72,100 An endurance task where Housemates had to raise a money bag in the air with mystery amounts inside. Chloe had secretly allocated amounts to each Housemate's bag based on who she thought would last the longest. Staying over the given time, Cristian earned £10,000, Danny added £6,000 whilst Sam earned £5,000 +£21,000
£82,100 Chloe, Jack, Joel and Sam were each offered £5,000 to take for themselves or to add to the prize fund. The remaining four had to guess what they thought each would do. Danny and Nick failed to predict that Chloe and Sam would take the money for themselves, Joel decided to add the money to the prize fund, and Harry Amelia correctly guessed that Jack would take the money therefore stole it and also decided to add it to the prize fund. +£10,000
£87,100 Danny remaining undetected in the Twitter Troll task meaning he added to the prize fund +£5,000
£102,100 Following Harry Amelia's eviction, the three remaining nominated Housemates each had to choose an envelope containing an amount of cash. The other Housemates then had to evict one of these, with the evicted Housemate adding their allocated amount of money to the overall prize fund. They evicted Sam and therefore added £15,000. +£15,000
£102,100 The Housemates earned £23,900 across the day from doing the Conga, Jack getting five spray tans, Danny spelling "Canoe", and all Housemates answering questions correctly from a viewer based poll. However, Big Brother then told the Housemates that they would have an opportunity to steal the £23,900 before it gets added to the prize fund. They all had a minute to press a button to steal the cash, with the fastest taking it home. If none of them pressed within the time limit the money would be added to the prize fund. Jack pressed the button first therefore stole the money. +£23,900
£116,100 After Jack took the money, Big Brother made Jack solely responsible for adding to it again for the final time. He took part in five different tasks including being submerged in sewage, receiving seven more spray tans and shaving a strip in his hair. By successfully completing all the challenges, he earned £14,000 towards the prize fund leaving the overall full amount at £116,100. +£14,000
