Triple Evictions occur in Big Brother in order to send three people home in one week. They are very similar to Double Evictions, as it is another eviction cycle that happens in the same night as the first, however two people leave during the second eviction rather than just one, meaning three people leave the game that night. During this eviction, one Head of Household is named and nominates three nominees. Then a Power of Veto Competition is held (the HOH isn't allowed to compete), followed by a Power of Veto Ceremony. After this, the houseguests cast their vote to save one of the nominees. The two nominees with the least amount of votes will then be evicted.

The very first triple eviction occurred in Big Brother Canada 3, and returned for both Big Brother Canada 5 and 6.

The first ever Triple Eviction on BBUS happened during the finale of Celebrity Big Brother 1 (US). It wasn't officially called a Triple Eviction, but the format remained very similar. For the second eviction cycle of the night, the Final Four remaining houseguests played in the Final HOH competition, where the winner had to vote to evict two people, bringing only one to the Final Two with them. As it was used during the final eviction cycle, there was no POV competition held. It returned again in Celebrity Big Brother 2 (US), officially becoming the main format for the final week of American Celebrity seasons.

The first officially branded Triple Eviction in the United States happened on Big Brother 22 (US). Instead of using the Big Brother Canada format, the main series US format was simply two Fast Forward cycles in one night, as opposed to one cycle with two people being evicted.
