Expulsion is a form of disqualification that occurs when a houseguest breaks the rules of the game such as cheating. The expelled houseguest is removed from the game permanently, banned from groups and websites associated to the Big Brother ORG Wiki, and will not be allowed to return in a future season. The hosts decide whether a houseguest needs to be expelled, which means that the other houseguests are not involved in the decision process.

Houseguests who are expelled during the jury stage are not allowed to become part of the jury. Expelled houseguests are ineligible to win the Fan Favorite Award.

Grounds for ExpulsionEdit

The hosts might expel a houseguest for a first or one-off incident of appropriate severity. It is in the hosts' discretion whether an action falls under one of the grounds for expulsion. A houseguest can be expelled for a single or multiple case of one of the following:

  • Attack towards one's sexual orientation
  • Bullying/Verbal assault
  • Cheating
  • Hacking
  • Racially, sexually or religiously aggravated offenses
  • Sock Puppetry
  • Vandalism (purposely defacing the Wiki site or Facebook Group)

The Three Strike RuleEdit

In the event a houseguest who is legible to vote fails to cast his/her vote within the allotted voting time period, he/she will receive a strike. Failing to vote in three separate occasions will result in an expulsion.

Furthermore, if a houseguest fails to participate in a competition, he/she will receive a strike. Failing to participate in three separate occasions will also result in an expulsion.

A houseguest will not incur a strike if he/she notifies the hosts about being unable to participate during the Eviction Ceremony or Competitions.


  • Jenna of Big Brother 3 is the first houseguest to be expelled from the game after receiving three strikes due to not participating in competitions. She was followed by Jack of Big Brother 4.
