The first Houseguest to be dubbed "America's Player"
With the introduction of America's Vote in Season 8, Big Brother made the unprecedented decision to give fans a say in what went down inside the house.
Eric Stein, the lucky Houseguest selected by America, was tasked to complete 28 different challenges that were voted on by viewers online and via text message. The challenges ranged in difficulty, but the prize remained the same—$10,000 for every five completed tasks.
In the end, Eric completed 20 out of the 28 assignments; so, while the New York native didn't walk away the winner of Big Brother, he did take home a whopping $40k!
To see Eric follow America's instructions, watch Big Brother Season 8 on CBS All Access.
