Trivia

  • This season is the first season to have 16 players
  • This season is tied with Big Brother 14, Big Brother 15, Big Brother 16, Big Brother 17, and Big Brother 18 for most houseguests to start a season with 16.
    • Big Brother 14 technically started with 12 houseguests and 4 coaches, however the coaches eventually did enter the game as players themselves, therefore there were 16 houseguests at the start of Big Brother 14.
    • Big Brother 17 had 17 houseguests at the end of the game due to the twin twist. Liz Nolan initially entered the house as 1 person however she switched with her sister Julia Nolan every 3-5 days. They played as 1 houseguest for the first five evictions but after that they became two separate houseguests. Therefore 16 houseguests did enter the BB17 house, but 17 left.
  • This is the only season to have two previously evicted houseguests return to the game.
    • Big Brother 18 also had two evicted players return however they ended up being the same person both times. Victor Arroyo was the 3rd of 16 people evicted from BB18 however he got back in due to the Battle Back Competition twist. He reentered after beating the second evicted player, Jozea Flores (who had already beaten the first evicted player Glenn Garcia), the fourth evicted player, Bronte D'Acquisto, and the fifth evicted player, Tiffany Rousso, in head to head competition. He reentered and was evicted again later in the season as the 10th person evicted. However the same night he was evicted he was given the opportunity to again reenter the game, as all of the jurors were fighting to get back in. Victor beat Paulie Calafiore, Bridgette Dunning, Zakiyah Everette, and Da'Vonne Rogers in the return/HoH competition and therefore reentered the house.
  • This is the first season to have a person walk from the game.
  • This is the first time the houseguests played as teams.
  • This is the only season to end on a Sunday.
  • This is one of 2 seasons to have people seek medical attention.
  • This is the only season in Big Brother history to air during the winter, due to a writer's strike.
  • Big Brother 9 is the only season from seasons 1- 12 to not have a player return to play in another season.
