Notes:

  • In cases where the entire house left the house, such as the COVID-19 Pandemic, it has not been added to the list. Only cases where a single contestant left and came back during the season run with no production schedule breaks.
  • In order to fall onto the list, those who are voting must be unaware that the person that they are voting out will return.
    • In public voting seasons, only when a contestant is sent home and brought back it is counted. "Vote to Move" or "Vote to Fake Evict" are not counted as the voter was aware that it is a non-elimintion.
    • In house voting seasons, after the eviction vote takes place and the host announces that that contestant is evicted. Regardless if they exit the house or not.

Seasons With No Winners

  • The following seasons never intended to have a winner and were more shown as a reality show to win prizes rather than the social experiment outcome. No nominations were given throughout the show, as no winner was crowned:

Notes:

  • Votes to save, evict, or make immune were not added to the numbers. Only nominations for possible eviction against a public vote.
  • Numbers are skewed to reflect one name to one nomination. For instance, each nomination could be worth multiple points ranging from 1 to 5. But to make the numbers the same worldwide, each nomination was tallied as one point.
     Seasons where more than two nominations could be made by a contestant each round.

Notes:

  • Numbers are skewed to reflect the Final Round before their first nomination due to the length of season and amount of contestants.
  • One chance is every time a Head of Household has the opportunity to nominate a contestant, the Nomination Ceremony & the Veto Meeting.
  • Seasons with the Battle of the Block have more chances since there were two Heads of Household nominating during the Nomination Ceremony.

Competitions Records

Since Big Brother 2 (US) in 2001, the American version introduced the contestants competition in competitions for power over nominations, saving nominees, and votes to evict. The American version would go on to move away from the public vote to a house vote to evict. However, not all countries have done so. In more recent years, competitions have been taken place to assume power of nominations in countries that still use the public voting format.

Battle of the Block Wins

The Battle of the Block was a competition where two different sets of nominated contestants compete for immunity for the rest of the week. Each week two different Heads of Household would nominate two contestants each. After being revealed, the two groups of nominated houseguests would battle for immunity. The winning pair would be safe and the Head of Household that nominated them would be "dethroned" and lose their Head of Household privileges and would later be eligible to be nominated after the Power of Veto. The losing pair would remain nominated and the Head of Household that nominated them would remain the Head of Household for the rest of the week. The countries that used the Battle of the Block were:

Nominator Wins

The Nominator is a spin-off of the Head of Household competition. Instead of holding the power over a week cycle by a single person, the winner(s) of the Nominations Challenge will nominate two or more contestants to be up for eviction that night. The main difference is that more than one person can win the Nominations Challenge at one, examples can be either duos or teams. In addition, multiple cycles will happen in the same week, at most three or four contestants can be evicted in a different week. So, the dynamics are slightly different than the Head of Household power.
