In this competition series, a group of strangers are thrown together to live in a house together. Each week, one of the contestants will be eliminated from the competition until only one winner remains. Cameras placed around the house record all the drama and backstabbing for our viewing pleasure. Although the reality TV formula in which strangers live together in a house is not new, Big Brother is notable for being the first series in which contestants are not able to escape the ever present cameras. The show exploits the fact that the cast's most intimate moments are shown to the audience to market the series in the most titillating way possible. The broad access given to viewers has led to controversy over the years. Not only does intimate behavior sometimes show up on camera, so does potentially embarrassing and damaging conduct. Contestants have been shown engaging in sexist, racist, violent, and otherwise problematic behavior more than once during the course of the series. Of course, the resulting drama is a great marketing tool for the series. The premise of the series, in fact, encourages contestants to be as outrageous as possible in order to stand out. The more dramatic, controversial, or otherwise provocative a cast member is, the more likely he or she is to be the one who is talked about. Several different versions of the series have been created in different international markets around the world. The original series is Dutch. The longest running versions are the Spanish and American versions.
