By eviction and a great victory, Jag Bains fought for 100 days inside the Big brother 25 house, leaving the reality show contestant $750,000 richer in the end. So how did he win season 25?
Jag, a 25-year-old trucking company owner from Omak, Washington, entered the home on the first day trying to become the first Sikh ever. Big brother champion. Standing in his way were 16 other houseguests with their own dream of host Julien Chen Moonves being announced as the newest champion of the CBS flagship series.
There was a lot of pre-season hype around Jag from the Big brother communal. He appeared to be a triple threat – social, strategic and physical – who could dominate the game, or succumb to an early ousting if his threat level was not managed.
Jag joined some of the younger contestants to start the game, including season 25’s first Head of Family, Reilly Smedley, as well as Matt Klotz, and Blue Kim. With Reilly at the helm, the “Family Style” alliance came together on week 1, which included the four aforementioned names, as well as Cameron Hardin, Jared Fields, America Lopez, and Cory Wurtenberger.
However, Week 2 ended Reilly’s game. Hisam Goueli, the front man of the “Professors” coalition, targeted Reilly and never relented. But, before Reilly was voted out unanimously when she sat next to Cameron on the night of the eviction, Jag returned from the “Dutch Region.”
Jared earned the chance to save one of his houseguests from the threat of eviction and chose Jag.
Regardless, Jag had his first interaction with the eviction chair in week 3. After Felicia Cannon – another member of the professors – stepped up as Head of Household, Jag was nominated alongside Cameron. Jag won his first tournament of the season by capturing the Power of Veto, which worked well for Felicia’s plan as she targeted Hisam by hitting a backdoor.
Jag withdrew himself from the guillotine and Hisam was named in his place. And by the end of the week, Hisam followed Reilly out the door.
Cameron then won the key to the private room. Although they were linked through the alliance Family Style early on, Cameron named Jag and Blue after losing his trust and he and his friend, Red Utley, formed “Legend 25” with Matt, Felicia, Cirie Fields, Izzy Gleicher, Mecole Hayes, and Bowie Jane Ball.
After losing the Veto competition, Jag received 10 votes to be evicted on day 30. If that’s a typical night of Big brother, Jag’s chapter on the reality competition show would be closed. But luckily for Jag, Matt had secretly won the “Power of Invincibility” perk, which allowed him to cancel a player’s demise.
Matt chose to save Jag. So, before her walking papers were served on Jag, Julie revealed that her eviction notice was over.
Well, little did his rivals know, Jag was about to make the most of his second chance by going on a historic run that won him a trophy and the season’s grand prize.

Well, the new Jag lease didn’t start life with a bang. During week 5, Jared nominated him to sit next to Red after Cameron wore the golden Veto necklace. Red ended up blind with eight votes and Jag got two (from Bowie Jane and Cameron).
Day 37 was the second straight eviction night that Jag starred in. He was a nominee in three of the five weeks, fueled by his inability to trust the right people with the right information.
But, amazingly, that was the last time Jag found itself on the chopping block.
Cameron noticed his second Head of Family in week 6, and got revenge on Red by naming Felicia and Izzy. In a plan streamlined by America and Cory, the house went to Izzy, and the professional flutist was eliminated from the game.
There was another reshuffling of the house’s power structure the following week when Cameron and Jared fell in the first double eviction of the season. Like the man he was accused of evicting in week 4, Cameron found a way to extend the life of his game in week 8 by winning the zombie battle-back series against Jared.
With Jared and Izzy out of the house and Cameron aligning himself with Jag and Matt as “The Fugitives,” Jag found himself in the best position he’s been in in weeks. During week 9 Cameron won his third Head of Household, bringing Mecole’s time in the house to an end.
Week 10 is when the Jag game really picked up. Cameron had firmly established himself as the biggest competition threat in the house – a job Jag took over when Cameron left the house for the final time in week 11 courtesy of Head of Household Bowie Jane.
All Jag was able to do was throw out Cameron and the Fugitive Alliance in favor of working closely with Bowie Jane and Matt. And just like he had in week 7, Jag won the Veto contest which directly led to Cameron’s eviction.
With Cameron out of the program and the alliance of Jag, Bowie Jane, and three in full swing, Jag began his Big brother competition dominated, and “The Mafia” began to get rid of players one by one. In week 11, Jag won both the Head of Household and Invisible Power of Veto, and Cory joined Cameron in the Jury house.
Because of the invisibility twist, Jag was eligible to compete in the next Head of Household competition — which he won. Although they started the game as each other’s closest allies, Jag took a direct shot at Blue and didn’t lose after getting the Veto as well. Blue’s exit started the second double eviction, and after Bowie Jane won Head of Household and Matt got Veto, America voted out.
Week 13 started with Matt following up his Veto win by moving into the private room. At this point in the game, Cirie and Felicia were all that stood before The Mafia’s final three campaigns – the two oldest houseguests of the season.
However, Jag knew that Matt was close to Cirie, and worked his magic to convince the 27-year-old Deaf Olympic gold medalist to name Cirie next to Felicia. Jag then went on to win the Power Veto while also making a secret two-way deal with Bowie Jane.
Saved from eviction, Jag and Bowie cut Jane Cirie. The result that followed was Bowie Jane winning Head of Household and Jag Power of Veto, and with the only eviction vote, Jag chose to stay loyal to Matt and eliminate Felicia.
The Jag Mafia crew were the only players left on day 96. And with Bowie Jane and Matt both promising to make it to the final two, the odds of Jag winning were higher than ever. Matt won the first part of the final three-part Head of Family, and Jag Bowie defeated Jane in part two, setting up a showdown with his “Minutemen” alliance on the final night. Both he duked out on the 100th day during the live event, and Jag broke the Big Brother USA record for most hits in a single season by hitting Matt in a game.
Faced with the most difficult decision of his reality show life, Jag chose Matt – the man who saved him in week 4 – over Bowie Jane. She walked out the front door and rounded out the Jury.
As the last two remaining houseguests, Jag and Matt spoke to the seven evictees. Both asked the Jury questions and Jag was ahead of Matt in terms of answers.
Jag passionately owned his back and forth with well-rehearsed direct responses. On the other hand, Matt’s answers left a lot to be desired, and he leaned more into his partnership with Jag rather than explaining his actions independent of his fellow Minuteman.
On the other hand, Jag sold that he was the leader of the two — and the Jury awarded that. Jag received five votes to win from the Jury (Felicia and Cirie voted for Matt), and became the first ever Sikh. Big brother winner.
As mentioned, the Jag’s 10 wins are the most by a player in a single season. Big Brothers US version. Additionally, Jag set the record for most Power of Veto wins. Jag snagged seven necklaces, dethroning Big brother legend Janelle Pierzina and Big brother 24 years Michael Bruner, who won both in a season.
