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 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.
