Walking also known as Voluntary Exit and Self-Eviction is the rare occasion when a contestant chooses to leave the game early or quits the show, eliminating themselves and leaving the Big Brother House.

In the U.S., houseguests that walk are ineligible to win America's Favorite Houseguest and are not invited to attend the finale (Dick Donato and Chris Kattan being an exception).

Trivia

  • During the earlier seasons of Big Brother internationally, a replacement contestant was expected to enter the game if a contestant walked or got ejected. However, almost all of the recent seasons of Big Brother have already ditched this old rule.
  • The Big Brother UK franchise currently features the most walkers with 38 total.
  • The Big Brother U.S. franchise has had some houseguests (notably, Audrey Middleton, Metta World Peace, Sam Bledsoe, Ian Terry (in BB22), Tyler Crispen (in BB22), and Frenchie French, attempt to walk from the game, but production was able to talk them out of it.
  • Although it's not officially walking, there have been times where houseguests asked to be voted out after being nominated.
    • In Big Brother 1 (US), Karen asked to be voted out by the public due to missing her kids.
    • In Big Brother 2 (US), Shannon asked to be voted out due to not wanting fellow houseguest Will Kirby to be voted out.
    • In Big Brother 13 (US), Lawon volunteered to be nominated and evicted so that he could win the upcoming Re-Entry Competition and possibly come back with a special power in the game to help his allies.
    • In Big Brother 17 (US), Clay asked to be voted out, due to not wanting fellow houseguest Shelli Poole to be voted out.
    • In Celebrity Big Brother 1 (US), Keshia asked to be voted out due to her breast milk depleting and wanting to get home to her child. Later on, Metta asked to be voted out after trying to walk earlier in the season, simply just wanting to go home.
    • In Celebrity Big Brother 3 (US), Chris Kattan asked to be voted out due to not wanting fellow houseguest Mirai Nagasu to be voted out, and also just feeling like his time in the game had reached an end. In a first however, his request was denied and he was kept in the game, with Mirai being voted out unanimously. Chris would later walk from the game on his own accord two days later.
