Former Big Brother Star Simon Gross Issues Warning to 2023 Cast
Simon Gross, a former contestant from the reality show Big Brother, has offered words of caution to the cast of the upcoming 2023 series.
Having entered the famous Big Brother house in 2015, his stint was marked by a surprising eviction within just two hours of his arrival, making him the only housemate in the show’s history to face such a swift exit.
However, he was later brought back to the house in a twist.
The Reality of Big Brother
With Big Brother set to return with new housemates on Sunday, October 8, Simon Gross has opened up about the challenges of being on the show.
He describes the Big Brother experience as a “pressure cooker” and acknowledges that it can be quite taxing at times.
Despite the hardships he faced, he expresses gratitude for the experience but emphasizes the difficulty he initially encountered.
A Brutal Eviction
Simon recalls his initial eviction, which occurred just two hours after entering the Big Brother house.
He characterizes it as a brutal stunt played on him by the show’s producers. Despite the unexpected turn of events, Simon remained dignified about the situation.
He mentions that his family, who had come to see him on the show, was devastated by his sudden eviction.
A Chance to Return
After appearing on a spin-off show with Rylan Clark, Simon was sent home but received a surprising call from the show’s bosses.
They inquired if he would be interested in re-entering the Big Brother house. Although he had returned home, he felt that deep down, he might be going back.
The opportunity to return arose, and Simon eagerly accepted. He was back in the house just two weeks after his initial eviction.
The Future of Big Brother
Simon reflects on the rebooted version of Big Brother and raises questions about whether the younger generation will understand and appreciate the show’s unique format.

Simon believes that Big Brother’s appeal has always been rooted in featuring everyday people from various walks of life, making it interesting to watch.
He is curious to see how the modern generation will react to the show and emphasizes its iconic status as the original reality show.
