The show came up with the idea of America’s favorite houseguest and everyone loved the idea. 16 houseguests enter the Big Brother house to compete against each other. This show has millions of viewers who actively participate in the show by voting for their favorite houseguest and help them win.
There are 2 different ways to vote for any houseguest in the show, or in other words, there are 2 different ways to decide the fate of any contestant. The first way is by the jury vote.

How Eliminations Work
Eliminations take place after some specific time in the show. During eliminations, only houseguests can cast their votes. The contestant having the most number of votes gets eliminated from the house. The last standing contestant will win the show with a whopping prize of $750,000, increasing from $500,000 in the previous season. The houseguest having the most votes from people will be declared as America’s favorite home guest.
The result depends on the voting done by the public. The contestant having the lowest number of votes from the public gets evicted from the house. Every week one contestant leaves the house. The host announces the results of voting every Thursday.
What Big Brother is All About?
The show features houseguests from the different regions living under the same roof for 2 or 3 months together. The houseguest or contestants need to perform different tasks given by the show authority. Houseguests will get some power to save themselves from the eliminations and become the head of the house (HOH) by their performance.
The houseguests live under the 24/7 live surveillance of cameras. However, medical or family emergencies are exceptions. Moreover, the contestants have to cut themselves off from the rest of the world until the time they are participating in the show.
