Trivia

  • During Big Brother 15, none of the nominees nominated by America were evicted.
  • On Big Brother: Over The Top, Danielle Lickey is the only America's Nominee to be on the block during eviction night and survive.
  • Cornbread Ligon is the first male to be nominated by America.
    • He is also the first to be evicted.
  • Elissa Slater is the first female to be nominated by America.
    • However, she won the PoV, thus GinaMarie Zimmerman was the first female to sit on the block as America's nominee come eviction night.
  • Had Eric Stein, aka America's Player won HoH at all during Big Brother 8, America would have named two nominees rather than just one, however he never won an HoH.
    • Additionally, the same applied for Dan Gheesling if he had won HoH during the week that he was selected as America's Player in Big Brother 10, however he did not win that week.
  • Danielle Lickey is the first minority and African-American to be nominated by America.
  • Neeley Jackson is the first female and minority contestant to be evicted while being America's Nominee.
  • Elissa Slater is the only America's Nominee to be vetoed off the block during BB15.
  • Morgan Willett is the only America's Nominee to be vetoed off the block during BBOTT.
  • Amanda Zuckerman is the only person to have been nominated by America twice.
  • GinaMarie Zimmerman is the only person to be a replacement America's Nominee.
    • Due to the connection to the Most Valuable Player twist in BB15, the houseguests could not know that America controlled the MVP nomination, so a replacement nominee was needed to keep up the illusion that a current houseguest was the MVP. In BBOTT, the twist was known to the houseguests, so a replacement nominee was not needed.
