Big Brother is a game show in which a group of contestants, referred to as House Guests, live in a custom-built "house" (actually a set built on a CBS stage in Los Angeles, Stage 18 since season 6), constantly under video surveillance.
The premiere season used the original format of the series, which originated in the Netherlands.
Since its premiere, there have been numerous companion programs to the show.
In 2004, the web series House Calls: The Big Brother Talk Show (2004–08) began airing.
To date, there have been a total of 272 House Guests compete in the series.
The Head of Household would not be able to compete in the following week's Head of Household competition, meaning that a House Guest could not hold the title for two weeks in a row, except for the final week or other stated circumstances.
Though not an actual spin-off, the Canadian edition of the series is the first and currently only series to adopt the American format of Big Brother.
However, other franchises such as Big Brother Brasil soon adopted the Veto Competition, Have/Have-Nots, and Head of Household into their format while still incorporating the international public vote format.
There have been two spin-off editions of Big Brother.
In October 2016, CBS premiered a spin-off web series, Big Brother: Over the Top, as an original series for CBS All Access.
