Big Brother’s America’s Vote / America’s Choice

Big Brother America's Vote


America’s Vote / America’s Choice has become a integral part of involving the viewing public in the Big Brother reality TV show. Formerly known as America’s Choice, it was renamed America’s Vote during Season 7 Big Brother All-Stars, where the viewing public is given the opportunity to become involved in the game. The voting is opened up to the viewing public each season where fans are able to vote through the CBS.com website and via text message. The reward is based on the winner being the selected for receiving the majority of the viewing publics vote. The America’s Choice polls typically begin during the half way point in each season, with the viewing public being able to vote numerous times on a weekly basis.

Examples of previous America’s Choice polls have been for house guests to win a phone call from home, use internet chat with fans, and even walk on CBS Soap Opera roles. Other seasons the polls were choices between which house guests would win a special opportunity. There have also been contests where America is asked what challenge the house guests should participate in or what appliance they should receive.

  • During Season 6, the contest was an America’s Choice poll for the viewing public to vote which evicted house guest would win the opportunity to return to the Big Brother House.
  • During Season 7 Big Brother All-Stars, the America’s Choice was give new name: America’s Vote.
  • During Season 8, the America’s Choice was combined with America’s Player where Eric Stein was picked to complete weekly tasks chosen by the American public.
  • During Season 10, the American public were given polls on what the Big Brother Have Nots would be allowed to eat without being given a penalty. This type of vote was also continued into the Season 11, Season 12, and Season 13 of Big Brother.
  • During Big Brother 13 the American public was able to vote on which evicted house guest would earn the chance to return to the big brother house. The vote was between Cassi Colvin, Dominic Briones, Keith Henderson, and Brendon Villegas. Brendon won the poll by receiving 39% of the votes, which gave him the right to compete to come back into the big brother house. Brendon successfully won the competition against Lawon Exum, and returned to continue to compete for the grand prize.

    1. Megan was the one that was in the military wasn’t she??? If so there isn’t any doubt that she was probably exposed to things we will never know. Her job in the military was interrogating soldiers or prisoners. At least BB19 is better than last year. I quit watching it after about 3 episodes. I agree with you about the morals and manners. I don’t care how old my kids are if they got on national tv and talked and acted like some of those on there do, believe me when I tell you, they never get to old to be punished. lol lol My kids are 50,47,and 42.,

  1. Jessica and Cody have stood against extreme bullying and harrassment. I hooe BB makes a way to save her from eviction thia week. I hope future vets are not brought back. It prevents fair play. Paul is controlling and of cult nature. Total disrespect for military is sad from those inflicting who have never served,

    1. I agree they should not bring the vets back in this game. And the bullying is so uncalled for. I wouldnt want to play with people like that either

    2. Cody and Jess displayed the same bullying and transphobic, anti-fat & ugly comments…they constantly said they were better than the other HG, so cannot support the comments that they were bullied by other HG’s. Also displayed some terrible PDA & other sexual advances on other HG’s.

    3. The players followed Paul on their own free will….if they are that stupid to follow Paul, who by the way was playing the game, then he deserves to win!! GO PAUL1

  2. This is the worst year of Big Brother ever. CBS should not condone or allow bullying and as for my family we will no longer support Big Brother or CBS The treatment our military veterans has had to endure is uncalled for and needs stopped immediately!

    1. That military veteran you are speaking of was the biggest bully. He should have been physically thrown out. Me and everybody I know hate that psycho bastard. I’m sure he is related to you or you wouldn’t be taking up for him. Not every veteran is a good guy or respectable. Everybody wondered what ridiculous thing he would do next. Good bye creep lover. His whole family must be psychos too.

  3. This is another really bad year of BB! I don’t understand why no one will play there own game, instead all are robots! The showmances have got to go and please stop bringing back alumni to play in the house it really ruins the game. Paul has just ruined this season and because of him no one has played the game but him. If this is how the show is going to keep going in the next few seasons I’m over it , and to have a celebrity season of BB sucks! I don’t care to watch celebrities play at all so I won’t be watching that either. Come on get the show back to what it once was and stop bringing them back to play again and please outlaw showmances they really ruin the show! When you pick for the show pick people who have a backbone and really know how to play and won’t be following the house! Fed up seriously. Has far as I’m concerned I don’t care who wins this season as of tonight I’m done with this season. It is the worst. Not as bad as when Vanessa was in house that season but really close to it!

    1. GG Said everything that I was thinking. This season has been horrible. You are so right, they act like robots and Paul is in control. This has not been a game, it has not been enjoyable, and I have never been so disappointed. I have always been a loyal Big Brother fan have never missed the season. But why would CBS bring someone like Paul back into the game. They knew how he was last year and he is a bully. Everyone has been treated horribly, Raven was a lunatic, Matt was lazy, they bullied Mark continuously, talked about Kevin like he was in dog. there’s no doubt in my mind that their writings are going to drop drastically after this. If Paul wins this game, CBS as they say, Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet. Watch your ratings drop

  4. I have watched Big Brother since the first season. I have watched the live feeds and if I was not home I would go on Jokers and print it out and read every line. This year has been a total waste of my time. Because they brought a snake-like Paul back into the house, they totally ruined the show. This is not just my opinion, go online and read the comments talk to your friends, all of us loyal Big Brother Watchers, so disappointed. Paul is a snake in the grass, and should not have been allowed back in the house. I am going to watch the Celebrity Big Brother but after that I am done. I would have thought that CBS would have been more careful of their selections of the contestants this year. Raven needs help. She is a compulsive liar, a hypochondriac, and is constantly watching the camera so she can turn flips and try to dance. If first I did not care for Josh, but now that I see his heart I see that he is a very good man. Jason has been my favorite all the way through. He has a big heart, he’s a family man, he’s a strong game player, and again Paul ruined his game. I like Kevin, but he was not material for Big Brother. The casting was so bad this year. Matt did nothing but lay in bed with Raven. Felt really sorry for Matt, because of Paul they were always on his case. Cody may not have been the best person in the world, but they knew how to pull his strings. They made him look bad. Sure CBS does not care how I feel, but for me big brother is over. I made a mistake I said I felt sorry for Matt, I meant mark. Mark and my opinion was a good game player, but they were horribly mean to him, they bully him and they knew that he was bullied growing up. This should not have been allowed. I could go on and on but I know that CBS does not care. They screwed up this year big time and I guarantee that they are going to regret this season

    1. Too much bullying. This was the Worst of all seasons of BB. I still like Cody (and Jessica) the best, and I hope Cody win’s the BB19 Vote for America’s Favorite. He didn’t put up with any of the garbage Paul was pushing. So sad that they all followed Paul and treated him like he was a God – ugh!. Why now does Kevin have all of the people rooting for him to win America’s Choice? Nice man, but really?!? He let all of them, esp Paul treat him like a dog, telling him what to do. The worst was the foot race with Christmas deemed the winner in advance per Paul. There Kevin was trying to make a move to win, and he was cut down, as he said, by a girl with a broken leg”. They all were told the same thing, and she did win. At that point, the dummies could not see through this, and Christmas smiled her jerky grin. Shame on all of them. Kevin should not win, he did nothing in the game and followed Paul’s orders. Can’t stand Paul Christmas or Josh (with all of his bullying and trying to Cody and a few other players to hit him so they’d be dismissed from the game). Cody held himself back, knowing what the consequences would be. I still Like Cody and Jessica and hope that Cody wins the vote. The is truly the worst BB ever. Gee…can you imagine the D List Celebrities they are working on…perhaps from other reality shows?!? I think I am done with this!

      1. I don’t think Paul should win anything and I love BBC but will never ever tolerate all the wrong that was done, bullying and Julie let this go on,and production, I hope Cody does win he was the only one who just held his own and Paul you deserve nothing..big brother you need to come up with something before next week and Christmas you don’t even deserve to be there and you’re votes should of never ever counted, you didn’t play then how come she was allowed to vote, that did it for me, things might of been different if you didn’t let her vote when she didn’t compete, worse big brother ever, I think it’s a discrase to all.. Terrible
        Big brother should come up with something by next week or I do believe you lost a whole lot of viewed people, I have never missed an episode since this show started, get it right what happened to this show, worse ever, Cody I believe should of won everything and cmon Josh you allowed him to do terrible things to people, bullying is not tolerable for any reason, the 3 left deserve nothing but therapy, you just lost so many Fan’s

  5. This has been the biggest disappointment in Big Brother history. I have watched every single show, every Life feed, and when I was not home I went to Jokers and printed it out and read every line. I cannot believe the casting for this year. Bringing Paul back in the house was a horrible mistake. He is a snake, he has hurt people, I realize it’s a game, but there is a limit. Raven needs help, she is a mental case, IHOP or chondriac, always looking at the cameras to make sure she can turn flips and dance. The only thing she did was lay in bed with Matt. Same for him Matt just laid in bed with Raven. I like Kevin, but he did nothing, he was entertaining but not a game player. Jason and Alex or the best on the show. If it were not for those two, I would have stopped watching a long time ago. Christmas has an evil heart. As I said I realize it’s a game, but there’s a limit. Did not care for Josh at first but now I see he has a heart he cares about people. It takes both, it’s a game, but you do not have to be cruel. They bullied Mark the entire time he was in there. They knew that he was bullied growing up, and used that against him. That is horrible and should not have been allowed. I’m sure with Paul’s manipulation, Alex will be walking out the door Thursday. If Paul wins this game I will never, and I mean never watch the show again. CVS needs to reevaluate whoever is testing this show. I’m looking back and I realize my microphone is misspelling a low words, I apologize for that. Probably because I’m speaking fast because I’m so upset. Again my phone did not type what I said. CBS needs to re-evaluate whoever is casting for this show. I simply cannot get over how bad this has been. When a lawyer fan watches a show like this, it is for entertainment and enjoyment. I have literally lost sleep over this I suppose I should have stopped watching it a long time ago. If Alex goes home Thursday night, that will end it for me. Because after that I really don’t care. because I’m sure Paul is going to be the winner, it takes someone that evil to win this

  6. I really seen a big change in Josh, but I keep waiting for him to open up about Paul…not to us on the cameras. I feel so sorry for the way they treated Kevin…and bad mouthing him…I’m 55 and been watching this show from the original show with fan favorites not model wanna beees. Remember Chicken George!…..I’m hoping for a miracle between Kevin and Josh to get Paul out. I don’t think it’s going to happen. I have to say when someone above noted Christmas has an evil heart,,,,it is very true…she is duplicitous and devious. I think she is actually keeping it in but falling in love with PAUL!…As far as Cody went, he was awful as a game player in my opinion. I was embarrassed as a mother with Jess’s sexual exploits, that 3 finger thing was so gross.

  7. This is the worst season ever. I Agree with Billy. Paul, Josh and Christmas were horrible. The HG were annoying and following Paul and all he told them to do was disgusting. Please don’t ever bring him or any other past HG back. We don’t want to see them or any other reality people again. Even Kevin – nice man- but never lived up to his word with guests who were voted out anyway. He never thought for himself and never won anything. Why would anyone vote for him to win the America’s Favorite Vote? he did nothing to enhance the game. Cody had more instinct than anyone else, and I hope he wins.

  8. All I said earlier (which was not posted)…was that Paul was annoying and a bully, as was Josh, Christmas is deceitful…and Paul and her set so many people up, namely when Christmas was in the foot race. The HG were all so dumb…even Kevin to be told not to go for a win, but to make Christmas win. He also did not do anything to enhance his game nor did he ever win anything. Cody was still the smartest in my opinion.

  9. the women r dressing too provocative this season does cbs only cast hot sexy women? paul did well Jason the best cody and Jessica were gross

  10. too much sex sex sex does CBS omly cast women to dress terrible might as well have them naked I think cody and jessica were gross Jason shoulda won it all. gotta give it to paul tho he played everyone

  11. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE. CODY WASN’T ON LONG ENOUGH TO BE CONSIDERED ‘AMERICA’S FAVORITE PLAYER.’ HE WAS ‘JUST AS EVIL’ AS PAUL AND CHRISTMAS. IF EVERYONE WASN’T PAUL’S ZOMBIES JASON WOULD HAVE WON THE WHOLE THING. HE WASN’T DECEITFUL ‘OR’ MEAN. HE WON HOH ‘AND’ COMPETITIONS… CHRISTMAS ONLY WON HOH BECAUSE THE ‘ZOMBIES’ LISTENED TO PAUL. I DON’T CARE FOR THE ‘WAY’ PAUL WON THE GAME BUT BECAUSE OF THE ‘BRAINLESS ZOMBIES’ HE GOT AS FAR AS HE DID. IT WASN’T ‘HIS’ FAULT IT WAS ‘THEIRS’ FOR LISTENING TO HIM. WHAT THE HECK DID PAUL DO WITH HIS $50 K. LAST YEAR….HE LIVES WITH HIS MOMMY AND DADDY. WE CAN’T ALL AGREE ON ‘EVERYTHING’ IN LIFE. SO ‘I’ UNDERSTAND PEOPLE WANTING CODY TO WIN. I FELT SORRY FOR HIM IN THE END BUT HE WAS A SCARY GUY, ON THE SHOW THAT IS, AND HE WON HOH ONLY ONCE. I DIDN’T CARE FOR JESSICA (SHE IS GOING TO HURT CODY…ESPECIALLY SINCE HE DIDN’T WIN THE HALF MILLION. ELAINA WAS TOO INVOLVED IN PRIMPING…I ‘HOPE’ SHE DOESN’T HURT MARK. I LIKED MARK BUT HE GOT TOO INTO ‘FRIENDSHIP’ WITH CODY, I LIKED KEVIN, HE WAS GOOD AT THE ‘SOCIAL’ ASPECT OF THE GAME BUT DIDN’T WIN ANYTHING. I WONDER IF HE COULD HAVE WON A COMPETITION IF HE DIDN’T THROW SOME OF THE GAMES BY LISTENING TO PAUL. (HOW ABOUT HAVING A ‘SENIOR’ BIG BROTHER.) I KIND OF LIKED ALEX, SHE WAS A SPITFIRE…BUT I DIDN’T LIKE HOW SHE MADE UP STORIES ABOUT KEVIN. FOR ‘SOME REASON’ SHE DESPISED HIM. OH MY HEAVENS..”HE IS AN UNDERCOVER COP”..BE REAL!!! SHE ‘ALSO’ WAS BLINDED BY PAUL. SHE ‘COULD HAVE WON’ IF SHE USED HER OWN BRAIN INSTEAD OF USING PAUL’S. ..AND BACK TO CHRISTMAS, THERE WAS A CERTAIN THING SHE SAID ABOUT KEVIN SAYING SOMETHING TO JASON ABOUT IF THOSE THREE GOT TO THE JURY HOUSE….DID KEVIN ‘REALLY’ SAY THAT? OUT OF ALL THE ‘PLAYERS’ <<LOL, I LIKED JASON. I WISH HE COULD HAVE WON THE GRAND PRIZE BUT 'MAYBE' 'AMERICA'S FAVORITE 'PLAYER.'
    OH YEAH, JOSH WAS AN EXCELLENT PLAYER. HE WON COMPETITIONS 'AND' HOH..HE SEEMED LIKE THE 'FIRST' ONE TO FIGURE PAUL OUT ..HE 'COULD HAVE WON' IF HE DID SOMETHING ABOUT PAUL EARLIER IN THE GAME. HE WAS GOOD AT COMPETITIONS AND HE HAS A GOOD HEART 'BUT' HE WAS BAMBOOZLED BY PAUL. THEY 'ALL' SHOULD HAVE PLAYED THEIR 'OWN' GAME. CAN'T PUT 'ALL' THE BLAME ON PAUL. THEY WERE STUPID TO FALL UNDER HIS TRANCE…GOOD FOR PAUL BUT 'NOT' FOR THEM.
