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).

@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.
