Returnees or Returning Houseguests is a twist that gives previously evicted houseguests the chance to re-enter the Big Brother house and compete to win.

So far, five seasons have featured returning players, which are Big Brother 4, Big Brother 6, Big Brother 8, Big Brother 10, and Big Brother 13.

Some previous houseguests were either considered, cut, or declined from playing again. They are called Alternate Returnees.

HistoryEdit

Big Brother 4Edit

Six early evictees from Seasons 1 to 3 were given the opportunity to play in the fourth season of the Big Brother ORG wiki. Coinciding with the horror theme of the season, it was called the "Zombie Twist".

The returning houseguests were not initially recognized as regular houseguests. In order for them to be part of the Big Brother game, the returnees were required to compete in the Head of Household competitions each week where the lowest placing returning player was eliminated from the game. This process continued until only three returning players remained.

In Week 4, Nathaniel of Season 1, Matthew of Season 2, and Ziggy of Season 3 were the last three remaining returnees, thus, were allowed entry back to the Big Brother house and played as regular houseguests.

Big Brother 6Edit

Sixteen houseguests from the previous five seasons are invited back to the Big Brother House for a chance to once more play and claim the title of Big Brother Winner. Deemed All Stars, these returnees are considered to be memorable houseguests from their respective seasons.

Big Brother 8Edit

One houseguest was brought back to play for a second time in redemption from the first time. They were brought back because they weren't able to give it their A game the first time due to external factors. Jenna entered the house at the end of Week 2 and the beginning of Week 3.

Big Brother 10Edit

This season brought back sixteen contestants who felt that they needed another chance to win the game.

Big Brother 13Edit

Two first-boots that were evicted for reasons out of their control, Jaylen and Luke, were brought back for another shot to prove themselves.

TriviaEdit

  • In Week 7 of Big Brother 5, former houseguest Yap from Big Brother 1 returned as a bartender. This is considered as a cameo role since he did not return in the later season as a contestant.
  • During Big Brother 12, former houseguests Matthew and Alissa from Big Brother 11 returned for a HoH competition. This is also considered a cameo role, since they did not return as contestants.
  • Per tradition, the winner of the previous season is often invited back into the house for a short time to interact with the houseguests mid-season. These appearances are also considered cameos, as they do not participate in gameplay.
    • Tyler and Nick did not appear in BB2 or BB5 respectively, as they were on the hosting team for those seasons.
    • Felix did not appear in BB6, as he was a contestant in the season.
