  • On Day 16, Amanda was hospitalized after she fainted from low blood sugar due to being hypoglycemic. Simultaneously, Allison Nichols was hospitalized after having a severe allergic reaction. Both recovered and came back to the house the following morning.
  • Amanda, along with her partner Alex Coladonato, are the first and second houseguests to be HOH Week 1 and then be evicted Week 2. They would then be followed by Monte Massongill, Cody Nickson, Keshia Knight Pulliam and Ryan Lochte.
    • Alex and Amanda are the only people with this feat to have their targets evicted during their HOH reigns.
