How to Play Fantasy Big Brother

How do fantasy leagues for Big Brother work?

Big Brother Fantasy Games for Season 25 are open!

It’s your favorite time of the year – Big Brother time. It’s finally time to see who gets to live in the BB house the whole summer and who gets sent packing early. If you’re like us, you’ve thought to yourself, “Wow; it would be so fun to have a game to play along with the show.”


Well, it’s here! You can play your own version of Big Brother (without being stuck in a house for two months and potentially eating slop). Bracketology offers four different Fantasy Big Brother game types: from creating a March Madness-type bracket after the first episode, to picking who is going to move on each week, to choosing a different team of contestants weekly that score (or lose) points based off doing/saying BB-related things. This challenge is on.


If you’re new to Bracketology, you can create an account here, or simply just sign-in if you are a veteran. Then navigate to the gaming portion of the site (our web app) by clicking Play in the top navigation bar where you can use the show dropdown or click on Big Brother to play along. Are you ready to join a family of reality TV fans?


First step is joining a community. Whether it is with a group of friends or the Official Bracketology Community, the purpose here is so you can play reality TV fantasy games with the same people across multiple shows. Rather than having to join new leagues and have a cluttered dashboard, you can stay within the same community year-over-year and keep your fantasy gaming competitive! 


Once you’re in a community, create or join the community’s Big Brother league. Within the league, you can play up to 3 game types at the same time. There are four different game types to choose from, and you can read more about each game type below or click on the game type header for a more in-depth look.

Fantasy League Game Types

Bracketology offers four different game types for fantasy Big Brother. Each league can play in up to 3 out of 4 game types per season. Learn more about these game types below!

Draft a new team of houseguests each week & win or lose points based on what they do or say.

Pick Frequency: Weekly

Fill out your entire bracket before the first eviction – guessing which houseguests will get sent home each week.

Pick Frequency: Once

Select houseguests who you think will survive the next two Live Evictions, and earn points for each correct pick.


Pick Frequency: Weekly

Week to Week, but assign a  point value to each houseguest based on your confidence that they’ll survive elimination.

Pick Frequency: Weekly


Tune in 3x weekly (Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday) to watch Big Brother on CBS. Scores are posted within your league here a few hours after the Live Eviction show airs each Thursday night. Scores are accumulated by episode but only posted weekly, so if you want to track how your roster is doing mid-week, check our scoring recap page here. Will you beat a jury of your peers in Fantasy BB? The challenge is on.
