With the 24th edition of Big Brother currently underway, fans of the show have been busy acquainting themselves with the newest batch of houseguests. All sixteen are newbies to the game and reality TV in general, so fans have plenty to learn about them. While more serious and factual discussions about the contestants are had often, more humorous conversations are common as well, creating memes and jokes from the often absurd events in the series.
Memes are among the most popular aspects of the internet, as everyone loves a good laugh. Big Brother has a massive amount of content to turn into memes, due to it airing three times a week on television, as well as having 24/7 online live feeds. While not every houseguest will be fortunate enough to win their season, some losers did become the focus of some truly hilarious memes.
Janelle Pierzina (Seasons 6, 7, 14, And 22)
Janelle is one of the most decorated players to appear on Big Brother, appearing on four seasons and making it to finale night twice. Her two third-place finishes and countless competition wins left a victory as the only thing missing from her resume, so she returned for season 22 to try to get the elusive title. Unfortunately, her game was blown up very early.
She ended up coming in fourteenth place, with both Nicole Anthony and Nicole Franzel acting as major catalysts to her early exit. Janelle had trust in both of them, but the feeling wasn’t mutual. The season 6 photo of Janelle posing with plastic rats came in handy, as the two Nicoles revealed all secrets she told them, turning the house against her.
Jeff Schroeder (Seasons 10 And 13)
Jeff won America’s Favorite Player on both seasons he played, and moments like this were huge reasons why. His showmance-turned-wife, Jordan Lloyd, may have had more iconic quotes than him, but his infamous “technotronics” gaffe has become legendary in Big Brother history.
The theme of season 20 was technology, so Jeff’s creation of the word technotronics was brought back to life. Nobody really knows what his intended word was, but fans can assume it had something to do with technology or electronics.
Becky Burgess (Season 17)
While most memes about quotes people said include some type of photo or alteration to enhance it, some quotes are so good on their own that no meddling is needed. Becky Burgess of season 17 delivered one of these, capping of one of the most hectic and dramatic weeks in the season.
As all retail workers unfortunately know, Black Friday can be a dreadful day at work. Long lines and antsy customers can cause a lot of stress, much like the stress Big Brother houseguests have to deal with. Vanessa Rousso was chaotic at times, with her constant plotting and her emotional outbursts, but Becky felt confident she could eliminate her due to her past in retail. Her quote was true and relatable, but Vanessa ultimately got the last laugh by making it to the top three.
Kevin Campbell (Seasons 11 And 22)
After his third-place finish in season 10, Kevin was generally considered to be a houseguest who deserved a second chance in the house. His gameplay was underrated and overlooked often, and his handling of hearing derogatory slurs aimed at him by a housemate was admirable. He finally got his redemption shot on season 22, and even if he was unable to make it to finale night again, he did provide solid meme-worthy content.
Have-nots being unable to eat most foods has been a big part of Big Brother, and over the past few seasons, they have been chosen by the HoH rather than earned in competitions. Kevin was an outsider for much of his season, leading to his consistent picking as a have-not. His time to enjoy foods such as tacos was scarce, so it’s hard to blame him for stuffing his face with delicious food.
Annie Whittington (Season 12)
Among Us-themed memes took over the internet when the game blew up in 2020, so it was only a matter of time before one used Big Brother as its inspiration. The creator had to go a bit back in time to make a good one, but it was absolutely worth it for how spot-on it ended up.
Season 12 featured the saboteur twist, one of the most creative twists Big Brother ever had. Houseguest Annie Whittington was tapped to be the saboteur and commit sabotage, as voted on by viewers. Her role was very similar to one someone may have while playing Among Us.
Enzo Palumbo (Seasons 12 And 22)
Enzo was one of the most quotable houseguests on both seasons of Big Brother that he competed on, delivering an endless stream of funny quotes, both in the diary room and while chatting with his housemates. Of all of his sayings, his most iconic quote may also be one of his most simple; “Yo!”
Whether it was being used as a greeting or just a way to end his sentences, the word “yo” and Enzo went together as well as any showmance did. He made deep runs to finale night on both of his seasons, but ultimately came up short both times. He narrowly missed being a two-time champion, but he did at least add tons of fun to both of his seasons, yo.
Bayleigh Dayton (Seasons 20 And 22)
Many may groan at an especially cheesy puns, but a well-executed turn of phrase is sure to get a lot of laughs with the right audience. Bayleigh Dayton had a lot of support from fans on her two seasons, but this meme about her impending evictions was simply too good to pass up.
Her nickname in the house was Bay, so any chef who has a stocked pantry could have made this joke. Bay leaves are a common spice added to dishes to add some flavor, but in the context of Big Brother, it is about a loved houseguest having their summer getaway end.
Nicole Anthony (Season 21 And 22)
The finale of season 21 is notorious for being extremely controversial, and even a bit somber for a night that is supposed to be joyous and celebratory. It featured one of the few times Julie Chen got combative with houseguests, and the winner, Jackson Michie, did not even seem happy at his victory due to the grilling he rightfully received beforehand.
Fan favorite houseguest Nicole Anthony came in third and won America’s Favorite Player, shifting the celebrations towards her. For at least this season, the third-place finisher was the true winner and one who received all the kudos for the night.
Kaysar Ridha and Memphis Garrett (Season 22)
Memes that are relatable are usually the best and most popular, and this meme of Kaysar and Memphis on season 22 is exactly that. The combining of families who would probably never hang out together if it weren’t for being in-laws happens every holiday, and Memphis and Kaysar posing how they are is a setup that looks far too familiar.
What makes the meme even funnier is how Kaysar and Memphis were in a similar situation. While the meme is a screenshot of one moment and does not represent their relationship throughout the season, they were very different people from different backgrounds who probably would not interact much if it weren’t for living in the same house for a summer.
Joseph “Pooch” Pucciarelli (Season 24)
Season 24 just began, but fans of Big Brother already are working hard to curate hilarious memes about it. Pooch was the second evicted houseguest of the season, but he left at least one quote that will be remembered for years to come.
Believing that most live feed subscribers only watch for a little bit each day may not be a baseless assumption, but a sizable portion of feed watchers do watch much more. The subreddit for Big Brother has nightly threads for night owls to discuss what’s happening. Big Brother fans are dedicated, and Pooch will definitely realize that once he heads back on social media.
