Big Brother 25 has been action-packed from the very beginning. This season’s houseguests are constantly gaming and the alliances continue to form and fall apart. Former Survivor player Cirie Fields was dominating the strategy early in the game but a house flip changed everything. Big Brother‘s motto is “expect the unexpected” — so truly anything can happen.
Nine weeks into the season, seven players have been evicted for good and another was expelled for saying a racial slur. Here’s who has been sent home from Big Brother 25 so far.
Luke Valentine was the first houseguest to be eliminated from Big Brother 25. Luke, a 30-year-old illustrator from Florida, was expelled from the show for using a racial slur on the live feeds. He used the N-word in a conversation with some of the houseguests. CBS released a statement to HollywoodLife confirming Luke’s Aug. 9. expulsion.
“Luke violated the BIG BROTHER code of conduct and there is zero tolerance in the house for using a racial slur. He has been removed from the house,” the statement read. Luke’s removal from the game was shown on the Aug. 10 episode.
After Luke was expelled, Kirsten Elwin became the first Big Brother 25 houseguest to be evicted. Kirsten, a 25-year-old molecular biologist from Texas, was one of four people nominated for eviction on premiere night after losing a competition. Kirsten sat next to Felicia Cannon on the block on eviction night. She was sent home by a unanimous 13-0 vote on the Aug. 10 episode.
Reilly Smedley was the second houseguest evicted from Big Brother 25. Reilly, a 24-year-old bartender from Nashville, won the first Head of Household competition and she got her target, Kirsten, out of the game. However, the following week Reilly was nominated for eviction by Hisam Goueli, who was a member of the opposing alliance. Reilly was evicted 12-0 over Cameron Hardin on the Aug. 17 episode.
Hisam Goueli was the third houseguest evicted from Big Brother 25. Hisam, a 45-year-old geriatric physician from Seattle, was backdoored during week three by his ally Felicia Cannon. Hisam rubbed a lot of people the wrong way when he was HOH, so his allies turned against him. He was evicted 11-0 over Cameron Hardin on the Aug. 24 episode.
Red Utley was the fourth houseguest evicted from Big Brother 25. Red, a 37-year-old salesman and TikTok star from Tennessee, went home during week five at the hands of Jared Fields. Jared nominated Red and his closest ally Cameron, but Cameron won the Power of Veto and saved himself. Jared put Jag Bains on the block as the next target, but the ultimately vote flipped against Red. Red was evicted 8-2 against Jag on the Sept. 7 episode.
Izzy Gleicher was sent home from Big Brother 25 during the September 14 episode. Izzy, a 32-year-old professional flutist, ended up on the block with her ally Felicia after Cameron came into power. The vote seemed locked for Izzy to stay — until some of the houseguests decided to flip the script. When it was all said and done, Cirie cast the one single vote for Izzy to stay at the live eviction. The vicious 8-1 vote left Izzy out in the cold, and out of luck!
Jared followed Cameron as second person sent out of the house during the Double Eviction on Sept. 21. Cirie’s son paid the price for his messy gameplay and his big fight with Cory Wurtenberger, who ended up being the person responsible for sending Jared home. After Jared was evicted, he and Cameron were told they will go back into the house for a week, and one of their games will be “resurrected.” Cameron beat Jared in a competition to get back into the game on the Sept. 28 episode, sending Jared home for good.
Mecole Hayes was evicted week nine and just missed out on making the jury. The 30-year-old political consultant was nominated next to her closest ally, Felicia, by HOH Cameron. Initially, Felicia was the clear target for the house. But Mecole’s quiet gameplay concerned the other houseguests who plotted her demise. On the October 5 eviction episode, Mecole was voted out unanimously.
