Big Brother 1 is the first season of the American reality competition show Big Brother. The season aired on CBS. The winner of the season received a cash prize of $500,000, while the runner-up received $50,000, and the third place finisher received $25,000.

HouseEdit

Pictures of the house were released two days prior to the airing of the premiere. The theme was "Bare Necessities", and the house featured basic features of a normal suburban house. The kitchen/dining room and living room were attached. There were two bedrooms, each containing four double beds.

One of the bedrooms was the "Daughter's Room", which was pink and had feminine designs. The other bedroom was the "Son's Room", which was blue and had sports and technology-influenced designs. Despite the names, HouseGuests were allowed to choose whichever room they liked regardless of their own gender. The bathroom was white and was decorated with "knock-off paintings".
