* CompletelyMissingThePoint: The show refers to the participants "brothers" and "sisters", sometimes prefaced with the adjective "Big" (GratuitousEnglish at its best), ignoring completely that the titular BigBrother was supposed to be the viewer. Or the director.

* AscendedFanboy: It's fairly common for each season to cast a "superfan", or a person who has been watching the show since or almost since its inception. Usually there are only one or two since they tend to be DangerouslyGenreSavvy.

* BoringButPractical: Rob Cesternino, considered one of the most DangerouslyGenreSavvy players to ''ever'' play ''Series/{{Survivor}}'', has been asked about this game during his podcast. His response was that "Floating" is actually a ''very'' practical strategy. If you stay outside of the [[AHouseDivided dominant alliances]], or are seen as the "Low man on the totem pole", you can get ''quite'' far, since if the players decide to target you, they're essentially wasting a week, and a lot more can happen in a week than in three days of survivor.

* The90s: The theme of week 4 in Season 17. The Head of Household competition featured a hip-hop dance troupe, the Battle of the Block was grunge-themed, the Veto was an homage to ''Series/SavedByTheBell'', and Liz, Jason, and Johnny Mac were punished by being turned into a BoyBand for the week.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Given that many versions of Big Brother end up being [[LongRunner Long Runners]], combined with the fact that almost every major country on earth has had its own version of the show, quite a formidable number of people have spent time inside the Big Brother house. Even within a single season of the show, there can be a large number of housemates to deal with. In most cases the number is kept reasonable (12-14 housemates), but other times all bets are off.
** While the US version held to the rule of 12-14 housemates for the longest time, recent seasons have seen 16 becoming the default number. ''Big Brother 17'' currently holds the record for most housemates on the US version of the show, with 17, appropriately.
** The UK version of the show, on the other hand, has shown no qualms with stuffing as many people into the house as possible. Case in point: ''Big Brother 8'', which, due to a combination of poorly executed twists and several [[NonGameplayElimination Non Gameplay Eliminations]] had a total of 22 housemates.
** ''Big Brother Africa'' holds the record for most housemates across ''any'' version of the show: It's 7th season had ''35 housemates'' competing. That season's twist had them all competing in pairs, but ''still''. Even more impressively, all 35 were living in the house from Day 1, in contrast to other large seasons which often start out with a reasonable number of people but then have more move in as the series progresses.



* IconicLogo

to:

* IconicLogoIconicLogo: The famous eye logo, meant to represent the eye of Big Brother that is always watching the housemates, has been a staple of every series of the show, regular, celebrity, or otherwise, since Big Brother 1. The celebrity series often jazz it up by using a star as the pupil of the eye.



* The90s: The theme of week 4 in Season 17. The Head of Household competition featured a hip-hop dance troupe, the Battle of the Block was grunge-themed, the Veto was an homage to ''Series/SavedByTheBell'', and Liz, Jason, and Johnny Mac were punished by being turned into a BoyBand for the week.



* TenMinuteRetirement: Season 17's Johnny Mac, who was unanimously evicted and then won a competition to return to the house about 20 minutes later. Several of the other houseguests (John included) made jokes about how little time he was gone for.

** Due to this Chima's became In Season 11, while Chima was never too keen on following rules, after Jeff used the third houseguest coup d'etat to be forcefully ejected from overthrow her nominations she went off the Big Brother house. During which, she threw deep end. She started covering the cameras with blankets and refused to wear her microphone microphone, infamously ''throwing it into the hot tub.tub'' when some of the others attempted to get her to put it on. This ultimately led to her getting kicked out of the house.



** Audrey in Season 17, who, after realizing she was going home, locked herself in the Diary Room for 5 hours and then almost never left the Have-Not room, not even showing up to the veto ceremony where she was nominated. The sunglasses, hoodie, and blanket she wrapped around herself for the entirety of this meltdown have since become a MemeticMutation.



** A '''Floater''' is a player who does not commit to any alliance except ''maybe'' one ally and only votes with the majority and goes to whichever alliance has power at the moment so they don't get targeted. They intentionally don't try to win Head of Household challenges because the Head of Household is forced to reveal their alliance(s) to the house. A Floaters' goal is to just keep the target off their back by making it so the house wastes a week trying to evict them. The way "Floater" is used by almost everyone in Season 13 is to describe "Whoever is not aligned with us" or "lazy coward"

*** Thanks to Rachel's outspoken attempts to evict Floaters in Seasons 12 & 13 (famously shouting "Floaters grab a life vest!" after winning Head of Household one time), from Season 13 onward being a Floater has shifted from a genuine strategy to an insult used by houseguests and fans alike to refer to houseguests who are perceived as not playing the game.

* LockedInARoom: During Season 4 Kelsey and Loveita, who were on opposite sides of the house, were both evicted during a double eviction. However, they were then told that they would be living together in a secret room next to the house for a week, at which point one of them would gain the opportunity to re-enter the house. Needless to say, Kelsey did ''not'' look pleased when she learned this. Despite this, though, the two girls developed a friendship while in the room together, even comparing notes and gaining information which Kelsey, upon returning to the house, used to take down house [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]] Mitch.
