BB11 Jury

The Big Brother 11 Jury (the 7th Juror was America's Vote)

The Jury was introduced in Big Brother 4. The final seven evicted houseguests, not including the Final 2, are members of The Jury. They vote for the winner of Big Brother. Up until Big Brother 4, all the evicted houseguests voted for the winner of Big Brother. The Jury became only the Final 7 (not including the Final 2) houseguests because in Big Brother 3, Danielle Reyes lost the season because of her Diary Room confessions. Thus, The Jury and the Sequester House were born. In Big Brother 15, it was changed back to a Jury of Nine.

The Jury House

Each member of the Jury lives the remainder of the Big Brother game in total seclusion, arriving in an undisclosed location, usually a tropical and beautiful house. They have access to movies and games, a pool, and depending on the location a private beach, but no communication with the outside world so their votes are not tainted by behind-the-scenes information, such as secret alliances or betrayals that they may not be aware of.

The Jury stays privy to house happenings in the form of a DVD brought along with the most recent evicted houseguest, showcasing competitions and other group activities. Secret meetings, Diary Room sessions, and other happenings that do not include the entire group of remaining houseguests are not disclosed.

On BBCanada 1 and BB 15 the jury members got a chance to return to the game. BBCanada had a public vote while BB15 had a competition.


On finale night, each Juror casts a vote for whom they would like to see be the winner of Big Brother. The votes are the names of the Final 2 written on a key, in which the juror places in the Nomination Box. In the same form of a Nomination Ceremony, the keys are removed one at a time, revealing the winner of the season.
