The first season of CBS premiered 22 years ago. Accounting for the 23 seasons that have aired (excluding and other spinoffs) was looking at nearly 300 housemates over the years that have fiercely competed for a chance to be the last person standing. While some may argue that the series must have lost some of its enthused during its long television history, however fans will argue that this is far from the truth.
CBS teased this season that viewers should "expect the unexpected." What curveballs and jaw-dropping surprises have transpired with the housemates?
Season 24: Here''s all we know about it.
Who won Big Brother season 24 ?

Big Brother season 24 episode recaps
Season 1 As the episode begins, the houseguests receive a ticket, which is the thing that eventually separates them into various groups. Each group then hosts a mini-game among them to determine which of them will compete for a chance to become season 24s first HOH. It turns out the three winners from their groups triumph are Monte, Turner, and Daniel. After the three of them race against one another to create a drum kit puzzle, Daniel is crowned the weeks HOH.
Although being HOH gives a player plenty of power in the house, it appears that same way with Pooch''s "Backstage Boss" ticket, which he resisted for the day, is also exempt from voting at the eviction ceremony and safe from being nominated. However, Julie informs him that he must select three competitors to join him backstage. These players cant vote in the eviction ceremony, but can still be sent home come next Thursday.
Paloma, Alyssa, and Brittany are all dressed and dressed as a pooch. When the time comes, Julie advises America that they can vote to save one of the women.
The players begin plotting on what strategies and alliances they can use to help them make it until the end of episode 2 with Daniel as the first HOH and Pooch, Alyssa, Paloma, and Brittany placed in an interesting position following the plot twist.
After a few conversations, an attorney by profession Michael and hypnotherapist by profession Brittany choose to lie about what they do for a living to make themselves appear less of a threat in the competition. Terrance and Nicole begin to bond as the oldest members in the house, but later Nicole forms a bonafide "Rogue Rats" alliance with Daniel. Alyssa and Paloma have formed their final two sides.
Paloma manages to gather together most of the women to form an alliance. However, one woman who prefers to hang out with the guys instead is Taylor. Taylor''s approach to align herself with the people puts a mark on her back as far as Paloma is concerned, and she begins to campaign to exclude Taylor from the house. Daniel takes a look at Taylor as a potential eviction candidate.
Daniel decides to nominate Terrance and Michael to leave the country. This year, we anticipate some severe manipulative actions to occur before Thursday. By the way, see how fans are already casting Paloma as the season villain.
The players begin plotting what to do next with Michael going to Daniel in an attempt to make a decision. Daniel explains to him that it was nothing personal. Michael then makes his rounds with other players in the house to see if one of them would be willing to participate in the Veto games if he was given a "Players Choice," but none of the other contestants take the bait.
Indy, Turner, Daniel, Michael, Ameerah, and Terrance go head to head in a Medieval-inspired game where they ride a mechanical horse and attempt to collect rings. In the end, Michael comes out victorious, which means he effectively saved himself from elimination.
Often, the women, including mainly Paloma, have a lot of fun getting on board Palomas'' plan to tie up the guys, so he ran and informed Paloma, who used this as an opportunity to rally the house against Taylor. Paloma effectively described Taylor as a "liar" and a "snake" of some sort, and the former uses manipulative methods.
Daniel replaces Michael as a nominee for eviction.
Taylor is shocked to hear that Daniels'' reasoning for his move is because she "sooped people the wrong way," and she eventually gets to know who could have negative feelings about her. Paloma now claims to have spread the message that Taylor couldn''t be trusted. Although Taylor attempts to clear the air with Paloma, Paloma is a brick wall, which continues to stutter.
Paloma isn''t sleeping or eating properly in the house, and the other competitors are legitimately concerned about her health. Shortly thereafter, the housemates receive a note that Paloma has left the house for personal reasons.
After all the turmoil Paloma has wowed in the house, she is the first person to leave. Both Taylor and Terrance have gone expelling.
Auerdem, check out why Paloma left the competition.
Ameerah, Jasmine, Kyle, Michael, Monte, and Joseph face off in a game in which they must answer a series of false or false questions about the hotel. In the end, its Jasmine who is eliminated. Let the weekly scheming begin.
Even with Paloma on the house, Taylor still has a target on her back. Pooch attempts to convince some competitors, particularly Jasmine, of a plan he has. He wants to go on the nomination block as a pawn with Brittany in an effort to backdoor Taylor. By backdooring her, she would not be able to save herself via a veto.
Jasmine appears to agree with a later proposed strategy to impose Taylor as a pawn, and then try and resist another person else to replace her. Now, however, the plans are conflicting. So what does Jasmine do in the end? Pooch and Taylor are selected for eviction and decides to let the cards fall.
Episode 6 Despite some amazing news for Taylor, going into the Veto competition, it appears that she for once is not the main target of the house. As HOH, Jasmine informs most house guests that her goal is to actually remove Pooch. Even with that news, Taylor is still determined to win the Veto to remove herself, because she doesnt trust the ladies in the house and their intentions.
As the Veto challenge begins, the contestants have to shoot three volleyballs into a hole with only their head and face, as their legs are bound by a mermaid costume and they are not permitted to use their arms and hands. Michael wins for the second week in a row.
Michael conveys Jasmine''s idea that they may remove Taylor from the chopping block and replace her with Joseph in an attempt to get one of the stronger opponents out of the house. In the end, the nominees are identical. Taylor and Pooch are still subject to eviction.
Episode 7/8 While Pooch is adamant that he is in danger of going home, Joseph attempts to express his concern for Pooch to Monte. Unfortunately for Monte, he has placed himself in an awkward position with his friendship with the women, mostly Nicole, by trying to convince the ladies to vote Taylor out of the house instead of Pooch. This situation may then come back to bite Monte later.
After receiving a vote of 120, Pooch is dropped from the competition (ouch) anyway. Perhaps he should have known Joseph.
Julie announces that the game will be played in pairs if one person wins HOH, including Indy and Alyssa, Ameerah and Terrance, and Michael and Brittany and Jasmine.
After a few discussions, the new HOH twosome of Turner and Jasmine decides to nominate Michael and Brittany as candidates for elimination.
Episode 9 Off the surface, the level of dismal behavior some of these housemates have for Taylor is strange, wreaking havoc on the screen. Nicole is planning to throw a veto contest in order to bring Taylor out of the house, but she is convinced that Taylor is not a good person and so is Daniel, however, there is no footage to suggest why they feel this way.
While Daniel and Nicole work on a plan to get Taylor out, they develop a personal strategy to help them pick off the girls and their alliance. Given that Taylor is clearly not a member of the girl alliance, they set their sights on winning the veto to backdoor Ameerah as a nominee and vote her out. However, this guy alliance, called the Pound, has a strategy and is ready to execute it. But then Michael and Brittany win the power of veto.
A second alliance emerges after Daniel inexplicably blows up on Taylor for an alleged passive aggression against Nicole. Joseph is fed up as hes tired of Taylor''s treatment. He recruits Michael and Brittany and Monte pulls in Taylor, and the Leftovers alliance rises. Taylor may finally get the support she need to have a tough time in the competition.
Episode 10 Oh how much more difference a day makes. Taylor is finally getting some justice. Ameerah and Terrance are replaced with Michael and Brittany, which is slammed by Ameerah. She only discovers herself more shocked when its announced that with a 7-4 vote, she is the one being evicted from the house.
Julie tells Terrance that she can join one of the twosomes and become a threesome, and she joins the team with Monte and Joseph. However, the HOH competition resembles what''s going to get on its way, but then the episode ends. It''s actually outraged fans. It''s only a few days before they''ll get to know what happens.
Episode 11 As the HOH competition continues, with players looking for red invitations in a bag of envelopes and then sliding goblets across tables in an effort to score the highest points, it appears as if Nicole is going to be the new HOH. For her, it would be a relief to speculate that Ameerah was dismissed from the house at the eleventh hour. Unfortunately for her, its Monte wins.
Nicole, Alyssa, Indy, and Jasmine are all focused on the blame game. On par with this season''s problematic theme, they are blamed on Taylor. At this point, we wonder if these competitors are concerned about their appearance once they leave the house.
So the Leftovers must come up with a plan for nominations. Depending on how the Veto competition goes, Monte is asked to use Taylor as a pawn again. However, Monte does not want Taylor to be used as a villain (remember, Taylor and Nicole are Festies Besties). Instead, he names Indy and Alyssa, although he is open to backdooring Nicole if necessary.
The Leftovers are attempting to figure out how to get Nicole out of the house. Daniel believes that his main goal is to win the POV competition so he can protect his fellow players. But from there, he makes the "dumbest moves in history."
Episode 13 Getting started after the previous episode, with Daniel using his veto to kill his ally Nicole, which results in Nicole getting put up for eviction against Taylor. While Nicole and Daniel wanted to meet him in a 9-to-1 matchup, the rest of the housemates have been eager to send Nicole packing. That''s exactly what hey did when Nicole was evicted, with Daniel being her sole support.
Daniel confronts Alyssa in a bit of a meltdown after his BFF Nicole gets out of the house. Second, he informs Monte in front of everyone that the recently retired HOH will win the season, perhaps in an effort to target Montes back. Outside of being the Daniel show, the episode also features a Jasmine show.
Jasmine has reacted primarily to Muffin Gate, which she is navigating around her castmates to search for the person who ate the other half of her muffin.
Daniel tries his best to defeat his competitors when it comes to this weeks HOH competition. However, his Michael, who is crowned the new HOH, has been named in a shocking nomination. He has nominated Terrance, Joseph, and Monte for eviction.
Daniel continues to make his rounds in an effort to gain access to enough people to take part in his quest to remove Monte from the house while saving his own hide. Terrance, who surprisingly is on board with his Festie Bestie, then approaches Jasmine, Alyssa, and Indy, all of whom are on board with getting Monte out of the house, perceiving him as a threat.
Before any adjustments are made, this newly-constituted alliance must await the results of the Veto competition. For another time, Michael claims victory and the power of the Veto.
Jasmine, Alyssa, Indy, Daniel, and Terrance each pitch that he should try to get Monte out of the house. Unfortunately, the pitch is too similar for them, and Michael senses something is not quite right. In the end, he puts Daniel and Kyle up for eviction with the intention of getting Daniel out. We know how Monte and Joseph will feel when they hear what Terrance did. We have a feeling that he may be next on the chopping block.
Daniel is not happy about being nominated for eviction in episode 16. He spends his remaining time in the house throwing tremors, defending the other players and demonstrating his own worth in the competition. When it comes to the eviction votes, he is sent packing by everyone in the house, with the exception of Terrance.
Julie drops some shocking news as the next HOH competition precedes. The house will be divided into two sides, with neither side in contact with the other, and a double eviction is coming. Talk about another game twist.
Episode 17 Of The One-time house pariah Taylor is becoming the new HOH. While she is exerting some power this week and appears to be committed to her Leftover Alliance, she says she has no intentions of nominating Jasmine.
As the episode progresses, it becomes evident that Joseph and Kyle may become targets soon in the house as Michael and Brittany are aware that the two may not be doing their fair share when it comes to helping out the Leftovers Alliance. For the time being, Taylor names Terrance and Indy as an eviction.
Episode 18 of the veto competition, which means that Terrance is determined to win the veto to protect his own hide, but right before the players compete in the competition, the game''s eliminated players have received either a punishment or a prize.
Taylor is being eliminated after the veto challenge kicks off. However, she does not receive a penalty but a prize trip to London. However, Taylor openly declares that she is still the HOH. However, if the winner of the veto decides to take it, she still has the authority to nominate someone else. Unfortunately, Taylor refuses to take the message wrongly.
Viewers must wait to see if the veto is used and if Taylor must replace her initial nominations with someone like Alyssa. By the way, check out how supporters feel about a potential replacement nominee on.
Episode 19 Despite a few disagreements over Kye''s choice of veto, he reportedly keeps the nominations as they are, rescuing his showmance beau Alyssa. This move does not look like a lot with the Leftover Alliance. (Kyle isn''t winning any fans in the house or online after insinuating that contestants of color will all form a coalition to win).
Indy is voted out of the house 7-1 during the ceremony.
Julie explain why the house will be split into two games with five contestants at Dyre Festival (outside) and five at Brochella (inside). Terrance will be HOH for the latter, while Michael will be HOH for the remainder of the contestants. This is the first episode of the series.
Michael and Terrance have been selected as their squads for Episode 20 of Brochella. Jasmine, Brittany, Taylor, and Monte are also joining Michael inside the Brochella. That means that Turner, Alyssa, Joseph, and Kyle will be joined by Terrance outside the Dyre Festival.
Terrance boldly warns Turner and Alyssa that he has no intentions of naming them for elimination. That would imply that he would nominate Joseph and Kyle. So, Kyle tells Terrance about the Leftovers Alliance and that the organization sought to rid him of the new HOH last week, and that changes Terrance''s mind.
Michael chooses Jasmine and Monte for elimination at the inside nomination ceremony. (For now, Monte believes he is a pawn.) Then, Terrance names Turner and Joseph. Considering Terrance''s comments about him being safe this week, the next episode should be quite interesting leading up to the veto challenge.
Episode 21 Despite being officially divided into two groups, separate veto competitions are extremely important this week, especially in the Dyre Festival camp where two members of the Leftovers Alliance are eligible for eviction. Oh, and we cant forget that Jasmine in the Brochella group is not pleased about being nominated for eviction on her birthday.
Terrance defeats the Dyre Festival group (and viewers at home) by winning. With Veto''s power, he takes Turner off the chopping block and replaces him with Kyle. What makes this somewhat comical, is that Kyle has been scheming ever since the house was split into two groups, and is on a campaign to eliminate the Leftovers Alliance.
Brittany finishes up winning the Power of Veto and decides to keep the nominations as they are, which again matters to Jasmine. It''s important to see if Jasmine has sealed her fate, but will he be able to convince Terrance to choose Kyle from the Dyre Festival instead?
Sadly for the Leftover Alliance, Joseph is sent home. He was unable to sway Terrance and persuade him that Kyle could not be trusted. Moreover, even Turner voted to send Joseph home. Similarly, Jasmine has been evicted from.
As the two house factions reunite, the remaining members of the Leftover Alliance are disgruntled to see that Joseph has been kicked out of the competition. It appears like Kyle may have a target on his back in future episodes for all of his plot and scheming.
Episode 23 As the house is reunited, the newly formed alliance of Terrance, Alyssa, Kyle, and Turner (aka the Afterparty) starts wreaking havoc on why they removed Joseph from the house. They tried to portray him as "acting crazy." However, the Leftover Alliance from Brochella isn''t buying the lies and now sees the pending HOH competition as an extremely difficult one.
The Houseguests must stack tiny cans using a big pair of tweezers during the HOH week. Unfortunately, the Leftovers Alliance suffers another blow to their game as Turner wins and becomes the new HOH. When it boils down to it, Turner nominates both Brittany and Taylor for eviction.
Is it possible that Brittanys game bestie Michael win another Veto challenge and save her? Or will Taylor win it for herself and again escape elimination? Well, let''s wait and see.
Kyle tells Monte, a fellow member of The Pound Alliance, about the events at the Dyre Festival. With Alyssa and Turner on hand, Kyle tells Terrance all about The Leftovers Alliance. Monte was not pleased to hear the betrayal.
Michael travels with Brittany to discuss what Kyles has been saying before, but he hasn''t been concerned about his allegations that the people of color in the house were forming an alliance. Once Michael and Brittany reveal what they said, they appear surprised but are disgruntled.
Kyle''s claims are convincing, but he vows to do anything with that kind of thought expressed by Kyle. Viewers should wait until the next episode to see if Kyle becomes the number one goal to leave the house.
Episode 25: Kyle was largely depressed when his comments were revealed, but Terrance and Monte spent a lot of time explaining to Kyle why his words were depressing. Although Kyle listened and was perhaps even remorseful, the house still voted to evict him.
While Michael and Brittany are happy to have survived another week, they may enjoy the rest of the competition with a target on their backs. The other housemates were disappointed that Kyle had never been identified and used it to protect their own hides.
The HOH challenge has become increasingly important this week as the competition continues to decline. Michael again wins HOH for the week, posing problems to his housemates.
Unfortunately, his housemates are unable to do anything about removing Michael this week. In fact, by the close of the episode, he nominates Alyssa and Terrance for eviction.
With nominations set, Michael engages with Alyssa and informs her that his target is Terrance. He then talks to Terrance, and Terrance acknowledges that Michael and Brittany were both backdoored into nominations last week due to the power of Turner as HOH. Additionally, Terrance informs him that if he visits the jury house, he would be able to share with the rest of the panel that Michael and Brittany had beaten Kyle''s remarks but remained on the
Then in a feat that would have been expected at this point, Michael wins this weeks veto competition. After winning his sixth veto, Michael has now set a new high. Despite all sidebar discussions, Michael keeps the nominations the same. It''s very interesting to see who returns on Thursday''s episode.
Episode 28 "It''s a two-eviction night," the first eviction went according to the Michaels plan. Terrance is unanimously evicted from the house and evidently is not pleased about it. However, the actual drama comes when cameras pan over to the jury house.
Joseph is relieved to see Kyle walk after being evicted last weekin at the jury house because it means hes no longer in the competition. When Kyle comes clear about why he was evicted, Joseph, Indy, and Jasmine are appalled by Kyle''s outrageous comments about the players of color striking out. They are equally peeved with Michael and Brittany for utilizing Kyle''s ignorance to benefit their own game.
Turner wins the next HOH competition, allowing Alyssa and Brittany to be selected as the new candidate for eviction. When Monte wins the veto, he shakes things up and reclaims Alyssa with Michael as the other nominee. Michael attempts to save himself in the building by throwing his bestie Brittany under the bus, but has been evicted.
Episode 29 of the competition, where perhaps the most powerful competitor Michael is out, the remaining five contestants are eager to compete to be the new HOH. They are also trying to figure out which allegiances to keep the competition true as the competition falls.
Monte went straight to victory over Brittany thanks to a nine-second HOH contest. Without hesitation, he nominates Brittany and Alyssa for eviction. Although he clearly wants to exclude Brittany from the house depending on what happened with the veto competition, he may be forced to nominate a new candidate in Turner.
Episode 30 If you have been paying attention to theLive Feeds, then you know that Taylor and Monte have oddly found a showmance. The move is certainly a surprise for fans who have been watching the season, and it will be interesting to see how it will affect the game in the future.
It''s time for the veto competition, and it''s a lot to take on the outcome, as Brittany is desperate to save herself from the chopping block and Turner is desperate not to see himself go up as a replacement candidate. As both go head to head for the veto (the other houseguests were no longer nearing winning), Brittany is proving to be victorious and to exit the nominations.
Monte is subjected to a lot to think about as he is long-distance to Turner, and he has developed a showmance with Taylor. In the end, Monte says, believing that shell be safe, and Alyssa will be evicted. It will be interesting to see how that works during Thursday''s show.
Episode 31 Alyssa is kicked out of the house after a 2-1 vote, with Monte voting the outcome. However, Brittany is comfortable with losing her vote, claiming that Turner deserves it. This week, however, Brittany does not seem to be upset.
The HOH competition, for houseguests, is incredibly important as it guarantees the winner a spot in the finals. With such a high-stakes challenge on the line, all players sans Monte are laser-focused. In a strike of irony, Taylor is aiming for an eviction. Brittany and Turner are also selected for eviction.
Episode 32 This is the most important veto contest of the season, and the rest houseguests know it, especially Brittany. After announcing her choice, Brittany is on very thin ice with the other contestants, lying about the vote, and also for the move she and Michael made with Kyle. So she needs the victory here.
Unfortunately, Brittany misses out on Monte''s right to veto, who is certainly not a fan of her. However, if there is one person that might save Brittany, it''s ironically Taylor. Taylor is confident that she and Monte will clinch the cash prize. Taylor is not confident about Turner''s chances.
With Monte holding the cards in terms of who will be sent home, Brittany should just begin packing at the beginning of the episode as he is determined to be eliminated. In the end, Monte makes a pitch that his chances of winning the competition are higher with her in the final three than Turner. In the end, she dismisses Brittany. The following three will go on sale.
Alyssa has revealed to Joseph that Monte and Taylor have been sleeping in the same bed lately, but Joseph isn''t that welcoming of the news. Now, we need to see if the revelation affects his vote in the finale.
Episode 34 of the season''s final HOH competition, Monte is able to defeat both Turner and Taylor. Despite making packs with both Turner and Taylor, he has decided to take the latter with him to the final two, effectively sending Turner home.
Taylor becomes the first Black woman to win the competition but she is also the first contestant to be named America''s Favorite Player as a result of the ongoing episode.
