Since Big Brother first aired in July 2000, a handful of contestants have left the game early for various reasons.
Due to the show’s live feeds, Big Brother fans are often aware that a houseguest has left the game before an official announcement is made. Prior to Paloma Aguilar’s self-eviction from Big Brother 24 being confirmed during a July 2022 episode, live feed watchers noticed the California native’s increasingly erratic behavior as she spoke of not being able to sleep.
During the first live eviction episode of BB24, then-Head of Household Daniel Durston read a note from production to the other houseguests, confirming that Aguilar had left the show due to “personal issues.” Since the home remodeler had been one of the contestants in danger of going home, the first eviction of the season was canceled.
