Big Brother Season 6 was filmed in 2005. It included 14 houseguests. Who was the big winner? The houseguest names are: Kaysar Ridha, Ashlea Evans, Ivette Corredero, Michael Donnellan, Eric "Cappy" Littmann, Sarah Hrejsa, Jennifer Vasquez, Rachel Plencner, Howie Gordon, James Rhine, Beau Beasley, April Lewis, Janelle Pierzina, and Maggie Ausburn. The ages ranged from 22 to 36. One of my favorite all-time players was on this season. Can you guess who my favorite player from this season?
Janelle Pierzina was a 25 year old VIP Cocktail Waitress from Miami Beach, Florida when she entered the Big Brother House for Season 6 in 2005. She was by far the best player on this Season, and one of the best players of all-time.
In my eyes, she finished in first place (despite the fact that another player received the prize money). She has her own unique style, and quickly became America's favorite. She is a great example to women, especially women who get classified as pretty. She showed that you can be attractive, have a brain, and also be physically fit to compete against the guys. Thank you Janelle!
Janelle also competed on Amazing Race with another former Big Brother houseguest. Janelle is a top-selling Real Estate Broker in Minnesota. She is married to Jess Desanto in 2010, and they have three children. She can be found on Instagram.
More to come regarding this bombshell!
Maggie Ausburn was a 27 year old Emergency Room Nurse from Las Vegas, Nevada. Her secret partner was Eric. Just like Las Vegas is known for gambling, Maggie got pure lucky and beat out the best player during Season 6. The best player, and one of my all-time favorites is the third place finisher. Maggie lives a quiet life since winning.
Ivette Corredero was a 25 year old Waitress from Miami Beach, Florida when she entered the Big Brother house for Season 6. She finished in 2nd place. Her secret partner was Beau Beasley. She can be found on Twitter. Ivette was lucky to win the final Head of Household. She selected Maggie, instead of Janelle to sit next to her. Would things have ended differently for Ivette if she selected Janelle? She lost to a 4:3 vote.
April Lewis was a 31 year old Pharmaceutical Sales Rep from Dallas, Texas in 2005. She entered the Big Brother house and her secret partner was Jennifer Vasquez. April finished in 4th place. As you will soon see, this season was the only season so far to feature a final four that was all female. She can be found on Twitter and Instagram. It is reported that April has been married to Matthew Lewis since 2004. She appeared on a Lifetime special regarding marriages in a romance rut. #afforci

She was evicted in 9th place, which means she lasted 49 out of the 80 days. The things we do for money. Check out the below video of an online commercial she made.
Like, who is Ashlea Evans? I totally don't remember this name from Big Brother. Perhaps it is because she was the first evicted? Ashlea Evans was a 22 year old Fashion Design student from Plantation, Florida. She was the youngest guest during this season. She was secretly partnered with Janelle Pierzina.
While researching her, we found that her Twitter account was suspended. In addition, she is listed as being in attendance for the Twitter Online reunion for Big Brother 6, it occurred in April 2020. Her Instagram account is allegedly active. Additional details point to her owning this business.

Which Big Brother Season will you enjoy the most? Season 5 or Season 6?
You will notice the differences between CBS' Big Brother Season 5 versus Season 6. Season's 5 was themed the DNA for Do Not Assume, as some of the houseguest were surprised to find themselves competing against their relatives. We voted Season 6 as the best of the two. Our favorite houseguests is Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha, and both were on Season 6. We can safely state that Season 6 is the best Season of all the earlier seasons (1 through 6). Watch it and you will not be disappointed!
Demeanor & Intellect:
Very rowdy group in Season 5. The southern belles aka the twins: Adria and Natalie were very candid with their thoughts. Marvin, also from the south, was very direct and straight forward. Drew appeared to be the most intelligent. Mike was the idea man, as he firmly stood up for what he believed.
Season 6 had a cast that included behavior types that were classy (Janelle & Kaysar) all the way down to ghetto (Ivette). Eric, a firefighter from Las Vegas, was very abrasive in his communication style. Maggie was overall quiet, but sneaky.
Head of Household Intensity

The Jury was sequestered. It was the last 7 or so evictees.
Sequestered jury as well for Season 6. There wasn't a lot of time spent showcasing the jury.
None for Season 6.
Golden Veto continued. The houseguest were able to pick other houseguest to play. This is why Nakomis great idea to backdoor Jase worked well. Instead of nominating him, they decided to make sure he didn't play the Veto competition and backdoored him.
Season 6 continued the same type of Golden Veto where they picked their own player.
Season 5 had to use an old-fashioned ringer type of washer to wash clothes.

Which Big Brother Season will you enjoy the most? Season 3 or Season 4?
You will notice the differences between CBS' Big Brother Season 3 versus Season 4. Season's 4 was themed the X-Factor, as some of the houseguest were surprised to find themselves competing against their exes. We voted Season 3 as the best of the two. Our favorite houseguest of all time, Jason Guy, was on this season. It's nice to see a good-natured person on this reality show. His sweet ways shined throughout the episode.
Demeanor & Intellect:
Mostly wild and couple of faith-driven: The houseguests on Season 3 showed their wild side, especially the women. There is no surprise that this season's post-activity included three arrests and one Playgirl model. This was the first season that two houseguests had sex on the show. The two lovely houseguest were David Lane and Amanda Craig.
Typical money-driven individuals: The houseguests on Season 4 was focused on the money. It was cut-throat and full of drama. The addition of some of the houseguest's ex, made this a different type of season. Ironically two of the exes made it to the final few with their ex (Robert and Erica, and June and Jee).
Head of Household Intensity
HOH included and they were somewhat challenging. We wanted to see a little more intensity, as we found some of the contests too easy during Season 3.
HOH included.: The same sentiment as Season 3. We wanted more intensity during Season 4.
All of the evicted houseguests were judges and voted for the winner on Season 3.
Sequestered the jury for the first time and sent them to exotic or relaxing locations.
Also allowed the first 4 evicted to compete for the chance to return to the house. Amy returned after the houseguest voted between her and Eric returning.
Sequestered jury as well for Season 4.
Season 3 had lizards.
Season 4 had lizards.
Season 3 introduced the Golden Veto. The winner couldn't save themselves (imagine that), but could remove a nominated houseguest. All houseguest played the veto.
During the final Veto, the winner could use it to save themself (silly Marcellus :).
Season 4 also used the Golden Veto, and all the houseguests played for it.
During the Final 6, the veto was presented as an opportunity to take it, if you agree to place the other houseguests on peanut butter jelly for a period of time. Despite already holding the HOH title, Jee accepted the offer, and the houseguests voted him out the next week.
Both seasons had to use an old-fashioned ringer type of washer to wash clothes.
Season 3 - didn't show anyone smoking.
Season 4 did show a smoker, Jee.
Let's take a look at the differences between CBS' Big Brother Season 1 versus Season 2. We voted Season 2 as the best of the two. There was one houseguest who contributed to our decision and that is Will. He is a very interesting and unique character.
Demeanor & Intellect:
Classy & Educated Houseguest: The houseguests on Season 1 acted super classy, for the most part. They were all very articulate and most held college degrees. A college degree in 2000 most likely carried a different weight than it does now. Today we have tons of sources online in which we can self-educate.
Wild & Average Houseguest: The houseguests on Season 2 acted very wild (Amber jumping in the bed with Hardy on the first night; Nicole flirting with all the guys; and taking her top off in front of Kent; and the list goes on...) and their intellect level was average, except for Will.
Head of Household Intensity
No HOH: There wasn't any Head of Household contests on Season 1. They only completed tasks as a group for the food budget.
1st HOH Introduced: Season 2 introduced the first Head of Household contests by having one of the guest spin the wheel and name the houseguest who was a match to the label, for example, the "most talkative"... The later contests were more challenging.
Audience decided who was the winner and who was banished on Season 1. Houseguest nominated, and if there was a 4-way tie, then those 4 houseguest were up for banishment!
All evicted houseguests decided who was the winner on Season 2, and the two finalists were able to eliminate one vote. The evicted houseguests were not sequestered, so they could watch the show before deciding the winner. The current houseguests voted out the person evicted.
Season 1 had chickens. They also had a garden.
Season 2 had a dog.
No Veto for either season.
Both seasons had to use an old-fashioned ringer type of washer to wash clothes.
Smoking was allowed on both seasons (years were 2000 and 2001).
Please share with us which season you prefer. You may use the comment section below or contact us.
@CBSBigBrother Big Brother Season 2 winner was Will Kirby. He actually coined the phrase "showmance". Dr. Will Kirby is a Dermatologist. Born in Italy. He is 46 years old now.
He was the most interesting player on Season 2. He was upfront and honest with everyone when he stated his intentions in playing the game in a ruthless manner. He would state exactly what he planned to do and the reason why he was there. Even after sharing this insight, he still wasn't a player that was targeted by other houseguests!
He displayed a great personality, and a great sense of humor. He was very down-to-earth to be a doctor. Yes, he absolutely earned the title Evil Doctor, because he would share his wicked thoughts. He was good at developing a strategy and getting others to play into his hands. So far, he is hands down the best player ever on Big Brother.
Season 2 was filmed in 2001, and he was very comfortable showing his metro side. He likes to shave his entire body, and he also gave himself facials. Please don't be fooled by these words, because he showed that he is masculine. He also has a witness, Shannon! They dated for a short time after the show, but it didn't last.
Of course he won the $500,000 prize. He is known as a very controversial player, and generally hosts the discussion with Big Brother jury (except for Season 22 because of COVID 19). He did appear on the last few episodes as a next door neighbor for the remaining guests.
Will lives in Southern California, and he is a Dermatologist and an Associate Clinical Professor. He is married to Erin Brodie (For Love or Money two-time Champion), and they have two children, Cash and Scarlett. Yes, Cash :) Will is 44 years of age.
@CBSBigBrother Season 2 Nicole Nilson Schaffrich finished in second place. She was a Personal Chef from Atlanta. She was born in Pontiac, Michigan. She was 31 years when she entered the home in 2001. She was one of three who played the game really hard. Hardy and Nicole ran the house during the last half or so of the season. Ironically, their hard playing still didn't get them the $500,000 prize. Nicole was able to cash out with $50,000 in second place, despite the fact she was one of the first to be nominated for eviction.
Nicole was a big flirt on the season. Even though Hardy and Nicole said they are like brothers and sisters, I found their behavior more borderline flirtacious. She also liked to play mind games with Will. I believe she wanted attention from him, and he just wasn't interested in her. Near the end of the show, her husband sent air banners stating things about her behavior.
While Season 2 was completely opposite of Season 1, from classy to let it all hang out, in the end it added more drama. Nicole was very dramatic. She is one of those people, either you like her or you don't.
After the show, Nicole was a Radio DJ for WWWQ FM Radio. In 2003 she was a writer and producer for Reality Dish. She remarried to Dean Christner and lives in Roswell, Georgia. She is 50 years of age, and it is believed that she has two step sons.

@CBSBigBrother Season 2 Monica Bailey finished in 3rd place. Unlike the very first season of Big Brother, 3rd place didn't cash out like 3rd place on Season 1, which won $50,000.
Monica was a 40 year old Candy Store Manager from Brooklyn, NY when she competed in 2001. She was quiet and easy going, and got along with most of the other houseguests throughout most of the show, it wasn't until the last few episodes that she showed a different side. She exploded when the now deceased Kent Blackwelder triggered a negative response by her.
She was known for being honest and upfront, which was refreshing because of the played strategies. The filming of this season was in 2001, and unfortunately,Monica had a relative who was impacted by 9/11 (when the Islamist terrorist group Al-Quaeda attack against the United States, specifically New York World Trade Center.
She can be found on Facebook.
