While on the show Kate was considered a possibility of taking the title until she controversially expressed "disgust" at seeing two male house-mates kiss, saying, "I'll vomit. That was disgusting. I'm homophobic... That really freaking scared the shit out of me. I hate (homosexuality) and I fear it. I felt sick when you did that, seriously. Why does it make you angry to hear me say that?"[2]


Identical twins David and Greg Mathew, known as Logan David and Logan Greg respectively while in the House, were treated as a single entity in Nominations, Evictions, and Friday Night Live, and as potential winners of the season. On launch night, David entered the Big Brother House (with his bio stating he was a 23-year-old plumber), while Greg entered and stayed in the Isolation Room. They go by the name Logan because that is their shared middle name. They started the series as a single housemate and swapped places when Big Brother would call them into the diary room. This lasted until the other house mates figured out they were in fact two people, after an injury to one twin did not show on the other in a swap. This resulted in Big Brother deciding to make the other housemates to evict a twin on day 75. David was evicted, and Greg stayed. Greg eventually won Big Brother over Tim, but he and David were considered joint winners.
