Series Chronology
Previous Season Big Brother 4
Next Season Big Brother 6

Big Brother 5 was the fifth season of the American reality television series Big Brother. It began on July 6, 2004 and aired on CBS for 82 days, concluding on September 21, 2004 when Drew Daniel was crowned the winner with four out of seven votes from the jury.

Big Brother 5 was the same as Big Brother 4, in regards to the Veto, HOH, nomination process, eviction, and jury. This season had 14 houseguests, so they were evicted at a quicker rate than before, sometimes multiple evictions in one week.

In the fifth season, only six players would participate in the Power of Veto competition. The HOH and both nominees would choose a houseguest to also compete. This new format was utilized by Nakomis Dedmon to backdoor Jase Wirey.

TwistsEdit

  • Project DNA: Do Not Assume: There were two sets of relatives that may or may not know are playing together.
    • Twin Twist: Adria & Natalie:
      Adriaand Natalie

      Adria and Natalie

      Although the houseguests were informed that some of their fellow houseguests had identical twins, they were not informed that Adria Klein had a twin. In fact, Adria and her identical twin Natalie Carroll would switch places in the diary room from time to time during the first four weeks. They were not discovered, so Natalie was let into the house as a permanent player in Week 5.
    • Unknown Relatives: Nakomis & Michael
      DNA Nakomis and Michael

      Nakomis and Michael

      Nakomis Dedmon and Michael Ellis did not know that they were biological siblings until they talked and figured out they were related. Their fellow house guests knew this as well, but did not break up the possible duo. In fact, Michael cast the sole vote to evict Nakomis, but she ended up voting for him to win the grand prize.

Houseguests partnered up to compete in the first HOH competition. As there was an uneven number of players, Will Wikle chose to sit out. Scott Long ultimately outlasted the other houseguests, meaning he and his partner Jase Wirey had won the competition. To decide which of the two would be the HOH, Will asked Jase a question about himself. If Jase answered correctly he would be HOH, if he answered incorrectly, Scott would be HOH. Jase answered correctly, earning the title of HOH for the week. During the week, The Four Horsemen alliance was formed; it consisted of Jase, Scott, Drew Daniel and Michael Ellis. After hearing that Mike Lubinski had been trying to form an alliance to go against The Four Horseman, Jase decided to nominate him and Nakomis Dedmon for eviction; with Nakomis being a pawn. After Jase threw the competition, Scott won the POV. He chose to leave Jase's nominations the same. Mike was evicted in a unanimous vote.

Following Scott Long's eviction, the "Twin Twist" was revealed to the HouseGuests and Natalie Carroll entered the game. Nakomis Dedmon won the "Home Is Where the Answer Is" HOH competition. While planning for nominations, Nakomis realized that her alliance now had the numbers to complete the "Six Finger Plan". Nakomis planned to put up two people from her alliance, and they would each pick another member from her alliance to play for the POV. This ensured that all six players in the Veto competition were on Nakomis' side. Then, the Veto would be used and Jase Wirey would be nominated in their place. This allowed them to nominate Jase and not allow him to play in the POV competition. Nakomis nominated Diane Henry and Marvin Latimer, setting the stage for her plan. Drew Daniel won the POV. He later chose to save Diane from the block, and Jase was named the replacement nominee. Jase was evicted from the house in a six to one vote.
