Note: 1 Scott volunteered to sit out of the first HOH competition as the competition had to be played in pairs and there was an odd number of houseguests. Because of this, he was granted the power to choose the Head of Household: he chose Nathan Marlow.

Post Big Brother

  • After his ejection, it was rumored that Scott was not ejected due to his behavior, but due to an STD. Producers and his fellow houseguests discovered that Scott had HPV (human papillomavirus, also known as genital warts) which is able to be transmitted through non-sexual contact. CBS later denied the claims.[2]


  • Scott was the first houseguest to ever choose to sit out of a Head of Household competition.
  • Scott is the first houseguest to never compete in a Head of Household competition. He was followed by Brian Hart of Big Brother 10, Cameron Heard of Big Brother 19, David Alexander of Big Brother 21, Kat Yee of Big Brother Canada 1, and Risha Denner of Big Brother Canada 3.
    • However, unlike Scott, Brian and Kat were eligible to win Head of Household while Risha and her fellow houseguests were all made HOH for the week, whereas Scott had sat out of the competition and thus was not eligible to become HOH. Cameron and David were evicted before the first HOH competition.
  • Scott was the first ever houseguest to finish in 13th place.
  • Scott spent the fewest days in the house out of all expelled houseguests, lasting only eight days.
