Big Brother 10


Big Brother 10 is the tenth season of the American reality television series Big Brother. The show premiered July 13, 2008 on the CBS television network, airing three times a week; Sundays at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), and Thursdays at 8 p.m (live ET/delayed PT). Julie Chen returned as host, and Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan and Scott Einziger were the executive producers. The show was produced by Endemol USA and Allison Grodner Productions. The finale was Tuesday, September 16, 2008.

This was the second edition of the show to air in the same year. Originally, only one summer edition was due to air, but the 20072008 Writers Guild of America strike prompted CBS to air an additional season, Big Brother 9, from February to April during the regular television season and Big Brother 10 for the summer of 2008.

Big Brother 10 was noted as a "back to basics" season by both CBS and the production team. As part of the back to basics format, live audiences returned for the Thursday eviction shows (something not featured since season 1), there were thirteen HouseGuests, and they were once again complete strangers (after several seasons of having some HouseGuests already know each other).

Big Brother 10 lasted just 71 days, nearly a week and a half shorter than most seasons, making this the shortest season of the American series of Big Brother.

America's Player

Viewers (from Canada and United States) have control over a player. From July 29 to August 7, Dan, after accepting the offer by America to become their designated player, was asked to complete various tasks that America specifies (via text messaging or voting on for a chance to win $20,000 at the end of the week. Viewers were able to vote on tasks from the end of an episode until midnight Pacific Time. Once Dan received the tasks, he made meaningful efforts to complete the tasks in any way he could.

In Week 6 Dan won the PoV but chose not to use it. Dan also won HoH for week 7. After turning on a deal made with Ollie, Dan nominated Michelle as a replacement when Memphis saved himself. This was followed by Ollie thrashing items in the house and directing homophobic slurs toward Dan and Memphis. Dan also won the POV during the live double eviction episode, choosing not to use it.

Keesha won her first HoH competition in Week 3 following the departure of Steven, with whom she had grown very close. She nominated those who she felt responsible for his eviction - Angie and Jessie. Keesha then won the Power of Veto but did not use it. In Week 4, Keesha aligned herself with Dan, Memphis and Renny, as well as her previous ally Libra, and was pivotal in the move to evict Jessie instead of Memphis. However, this resulted in her being nominated along with Libra by Michelle in Week 5, though Libra was evicted in a 6-0 vote. Keesha won her second HoH in Week 7 nominating Jerry and Ollie, making her the first houseguest of season 10 to hold the role twice. The next week, Keesha was nominated by Jerry, but was saved 2-0 against her best friend in the house Renny. The following week, Memphis won the PoV making Keesha the only remaining potential nominee. Despite the pair being close throughout the game, Memphis chose to evict Keesha over Jerry on Day 64 claiming that it would be easier for him to get to the finals with Jerry in the final 3. Keesha became the 6th member of the jury of seven. On Finale Night, it was revealed that the public had voted for Keesha to win $25,000 having received the most votes in a poll to find America's Favourite Juror.

In the house, Libra became known for her volatile temper, and her strong strategic play which saw her pivotal in the evictions of the first four houseguests.

Memphis was once again nominated on Week 7 along with Jerry by his fellow ally, Dan. In Week 7 Memphis won The Power Of Veto and used it to take himself off the block. He won POV on week 8 and chose to take off Dan. He's the second person this season to win POV on back to back weeks. He also won POV on week 9, having the only vote, he chose to evict his good friend in the house, Keesha. At the finale, in a 7-0 vote Memphis became the Runner-Up of Big Brother 10 and won the $50,000. After leaving the house, Memphis was told that Big Brother couldn't give him the car because they didn't own it and someone else held the title so the car was returned almost immediately to the owner so Memphis received an undisclosed amount of money instead.

  • On Day 31, Michelle became the new Head of Household.
  • On Day 31, a verbal war among most HouseGuests erupted in the house and lasted for hours. It started with a misunderstanding between Michelle and Renny, and deteriorated from there when Michelle told Libra and Keesha "not to hide" from her. Libra then let it be known that she found it humorous that April is now "best friends" with Michelle, which in turn leads to a screaming match between April and Libra, with April calling Libra a "bitch" and stated that Libra "swore on her children" not to evict Jessie, which Libra strongly denied. Also during the fight, Jerry yelled at Libra that she was going "out the door", and that she was a "dummy." This set Libra off, as she graduated cum laude from Rice University. The fight ended with Roman Catholic April commenting that Dan is a "disgrace to her religion"; Michelle and Jerry agreed and suggested that he would "burn in hell" for evicting Jessie, which Memphis and Libra thought was too excessive. Dan hid from the conflict the entire time in another room.

The contestants were asked a series of true-or-false questions about the wake-up calls. One was eliminated if they answered incorrectly, unless everyone got a question wrong. Michelle was the last standing and won HoH.
  • Food: "In the News"; HouseGuests faced off against nine of the most memorable HouseGuests from past seasons, which were Chicken George from Season 1 & 7, Mike Boogie from Season 2 & 7, Bunky from Season 2, Amy from Season 3, Jun from Season 4, Jase from Season 5 & 7, Janelle from Season 6 & 7, Jen from Season 8, and Matt from Season 9. This competition was hosted by Brian, the first evictee of this season. Each HouseGuest was given a piece of news and had to figure out whether it was real or fake. The ex-HouseGuests had to try and convince the HouseGuests that the news was either real or fake. If the HouseGuests got the answer wrong than the ex-houseguest that they faced off against would win $1,000. If they got the answer right than the houseguest would win food for a particular day of the week or a special prize. Keesha and Renny won food for Tuesday and Sunday. Michelle won a feast for the HouseGuests.
  • PoV: "Cry Me a Veto"; contestants had to cut or dice onions and put them through a slot in a box. The winner was the contestant with the heaviest box in the end.

The first one to buzz in had to say which one they thought said the quote. If one was correct, they eliminated someone else from the competition. But if one was wrong, they were eliminated. When Keesha and Renny were the last two standing Renny got the last question correct.
  • Food: "Big Brother Rock, Paper, Scissors"; In this version, slop "drowned" pig ears, pig ears "silenced" crickets, and crickets "hopped" slop. The teams took on each other one-on-one and filled out on a board with their food pick. The person who won the rock, paper, scissors part with their choice then had to eat what they wrote down. If they were successful, their team got a point. The first team to earn four points had food for the week, while the losing team got stuck on slop and lollipops. Lollipops were a part of America's Choice.
  • PoV: "Haunted Yard" The HouseGuests examine the haunted items in the yard for 5 minutes. They are then asked to estimate the amount of the examined items on a bigger scale. First houseguest to get three points will win the PoV. HouseGuests can choose to fold or save, if they fold, they cannot get a point, however they stay in the game.
