Since Big Brother first kicked off in 2000, 24 dedicated houseguests have claimed victory after weeks of backstabbing, scheming and hard-fought competitions. As season 25 heats up, we're taking a look at everyone who's claimed victory in the Big Brother house.
Eddie McGee, Season 1
Eddie beat out runner-up Josh Souza to win the first season -- which was the only season in which the champion was determined by audience vote. Eddie earned 59 percent of America's vote, and the entire process of how the game was played was entirely overhauled.
Will Kirby, Season 2
Will -- who is considered to be one of the game's greatest players ever -- beat out runner-up Nicole Schaffrich by a jury vote of 5-2.
Lisa Donahue, Season 3
As the show found its feet, this season marked the introduction of the Power of Veto twist, which changed up the game in a big way. Lisa wound up beating runner-up Danielle Reyes by a jury vote of 9-1.
Jun Song, Season 4
Jun took home the win during the controversial "X-Factor Twist" season, in which ex-lovers of five houseguests joined the game to compete against them. Jun claimed victory over runner-up Alison Irwin by a jury vote of 6-1.
Drew Daniel, Season 5
In one of the closest votes of the series thus far, Drew claimed victory over Michael "Cowboy" Ellis by a jury vote of 4-3.
Maggie Ausburn, Season 6
After a season featuring the Summer of Secrets twist, Maggie beat out runner-up Ivette Corredero by a very close jury vote of 4-3.
Mike 'Boogie' Malin, Season 7
Big Brother season 7 was the show's first "all-stars" season, featuring contestants who'd competed on the show before. Mike was a houseguest during season 2, and a close friend of winner Will Kirby. In Season 7, Mike returned and wound up winning the whole thing by a jury vote of 6-1.
'Evel' Dick Donato, Season 8
"Evel" Dick -- one of the show's most iconic and beloved villains -- went into the final two alongside his daughter, Daniele Donato. Dick went on to claim victory by a jury vote of 5-2.
Adam Jasinski, Season 9
In a season that saw the houseguests compete as couples and get evicted as couples, Adam managed to stick around and get into the final two with Ryan Quicksall. Adam won the season by a 6-1 jury vote.
Dan Gheesling, Season 10
After the show went "back to basics" for season 10 -- meaning no major twists of convoluted formatting -- Dan Gheesling took home the championship by a jury vote of 7-0 over runner-up Memphis Garrett. Memphis also made history this season by becoming the first finalist to not get any jury votes at all.
Jordan Lloyd, Season 11
After 73 days of competition, Jordan beat runner-up Natalie Martinez by a jury vote of 5-2.
Hayden Moss, Season 12
Hayden Moss claimed victory over Lane Elenburg by a close 4-3 jury vote after a challenging season featuring the so-called "saboteur twist," which introduced one houseguest who, unbeknownst to the other players, wasn't competing to win but simply was tasked with sowing as much chaos as possible to blow up everyone else's games.
Rachel Reilly, Season 13
After first competing in season 12, Rachel returned as part of season 13's "Dynamic Duos twist," in which three duos from previous seasons returned to the house to compete against eight newcomer houseguests. Rachel claimed victory over Porsche Briggs by a jury vote of 4-3.
Ian Terry, Season 14
In season 14, previous winner Dan Gheesling returned to the competition, and almost won a second time, making it to the final two. However, his manipulative gameplay won him few friends and he wound up losing to Ian Terry by a jury vote of 6-1.
Andy Herren, Season 15
In what was, at the time, the longest season in the show's history -- at 90 days -- Andy Herren beat out controversial runner-up GinaMarie Zimmerman by a 7-2 jury vote.
Derrick Levasseur, Season 16
After one of the most complicated, twist-filled seasons in the show's history, Derrick claimed victory on day 97, beating out Cody Calafiore by a jury vote of 7-2.
Steve Moses, Season 17
Season 17 looked to the convoluted season 16 at a jumping off point for how weird it could make things, and just ran with some wild ideas. One of the most unexpected was the "Twin Twist," in which identical twins Liz and Julia Nolan would swap places, each playing as just one houseguest, until season 5, when the twist was revealed and both women played individually. Steve wound up making it to the final two with Liz, and won the season by a jury vote of 6-3
Nicole Franzel, Season 18
On Day 99, Nicole eked out a win over runner-up Paul Abrahamian with a 5-4 jury vote.
Josh Martinez, Season 19
Kaycee Clark, Season 20
In a tech-focused season involving a "Hacker twist" and a bunch of social media-themed shenanigans, Kaycee beat out Tyler Crispen with a 5-4 jury vote. Kaycee is still regarded as one of the best and most dominant physical competitors in the show's history, winning an impressive seven comps in total during the show, including three back-to-back Power of Veto comps.
Jackson Michie, Season 21
The controversial season of the long-running reality show was marred by complaints of racist and sexist behavior by several houseguests, including Michie, who seemed to be taken by surprise when confronted with the accusations by his fellow competitors during the finale. However, he still earned a 6-3 jury vote win over his showmance partner Holly Allen.
Cody Calafiore, Season 22
In the show's second all-star season, Cody came back -- after previously coming in second behind winner Derrick Levasseur in season 16 -- to win big. Cody claimed victory over Enzo Palumbo by a 9-0 jury vote, making it only the second time in the show's history that the champion won by a unanimous decision.
Xavier Prather, Season 23
Xavier was declared the winner of Season 23 by a unanimous 9-0 vote, beating runner-up Derek Frazier. With his victory, Xavier made Big Brother history as the first-ever Black houseguest to win the grand prize.
Taylor Hale, Season 24
Taylor made Big Brother history in multiple ways when she was crowned the season 24 champion, beating out Monte Taylor by an 8-1 jury vote. Taylor's journey on the show was remarkable, as she went from being one of the most unreasonably disliked houseguests of the season -- and almost got evicted after the first week -- to becoming both the first Black woman to ever win the show and the first champion to also be voted by fans as America's Favorite Player.
Big Brother made history yet again in Season 25 when Jag Bains became the show's first-ever Sikh-American to be crowned champion. Jag beat out runner-up Matt Klotz -- Big Brother's first-ever deaf competitor -- by a vote of 5-2, and earned the $750,000 grand prize.
