Big Brother just wrapped its twentieth, and maybe most successful, season to date. Last summer, BB 19 aired and wasn’t exactly received well by fans who could see that Paul Abrahamian was running the show without any resistance. It made for boring television and a pretty bitter cast (Paul ended up losing by just one vote in the finale to Josh Martinez, as reported by The Inquisitr). Jessica Graf, a pre-jury evictee, spoke out about one of the main differences between her season and BB 20.
In a tweet, Jessica admitted that she felt “jealous” of Season 20’s cast because of how close they all appear after the finale. It’s true, the cast has been spotted partying and hanging out together nonstop since the Wednesday finale. Kaycee Clark, the winner of BB 20, perhaps represents the season’s houseguests the best. Genuine, honest, and non-vindictive. Some houseguests have even posted pictures with contestants they were at direct odds with (remember when Fessy sent him his own alliance member?) and everyone seems to be getting along great.
Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson, both players from BB 19, are now engaged and expecting their first child together. “Cody and I will start our own BB family,” Jessica writes. After last season’s messy ending, it would’ve been surprising to see the BB 19 cast all buddied up afterward.
I’m actually jealous at how close everyone from Season 20 is. Before going into the house, that’s what I thought my experience would be like with people from my season! That’s okay though! Cody and I will start our own BB family ❤️— Jessica Graf (@thejessicagraf) September 30, 2018
Jessica and Cody are some of last season’s favorite houseguests, with Cody winning the vote for America’s Favorite. They have since appeared on, and won, The Amazing Race.

WE’RE PREGNANT! And I’m over the moon! I’m so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together! I’ve been pretty quiet on Instagram lately. I’ve been avoiding posting stories and photos as much as I normally do because we’ve been taking this time to really enjoy all the great blessings we have in our life ❤️ Considering our engagement was leaked before we could tell anyone, it’s been so great to be able to share our new addition with our loved ones before making this announcement! I’m a little over 11 weeks and we plan on bringing our little angel into the world on April 11, 2019, just two days before Codys birthday ???? We’re honored to be adding the FIFTH Big Brother baby to the world! We can’t wait to meet you little one and we already love you more than anything! ???????? #MomToBe #BabyOnBoard
It seems that the BB 20 houseguests have a well of humor and love to draw from. Even Kaitlyn Herman, who spent an emotional few weeks in the house before being evicted, has since posted about her run on Big Brother. Season 20 seemed full of genuine fans of the game who understood it was just that — a game. Heck, Kaitlyn has even tweeted about Brett Robinson who once openly mocked her during a speech.

BB 19’s Ramses Soto also weighed in and agreed with Jessica. Ramses, who was a superfan of the game, was evicted pre-jury as well. He felt as if everyone just “did their own thing” following the finale. His sad-face emoji and heart sum up his feelings pretty well.
Agreed. Sucks not many of us are closer afterwards. I feel like everyone just went on and did their own thing ☹️❤️— Ramses Soto (@TheBBHomie1) September 30, 2018
Another difference between the seasons was the outlook of the players on the finale. There was an alleged jury pact on BB 19 that would prevent Paul from winning. Winston Hines, who was a pre-jury evictee this season, tweeted the night of the finale and made it clear that he would support whoever won that night. It seems that this sentiment was shared by all the castmates.
Any of the final 3 are worthy of being #bb20 winner in their own unique gameplay. It’s why they are there in final 3. Period. I’m excited to see a friend win some money and watch their life change. Let’s go!— Winston Hines (@winston_hines) September 25, 2018
Perhaps the most notable example of how genuine this season’s relationships were was shown at the finale. When Kaycee Clark was revealed as the winner, runner-up Tyler Crispen led her out of the house and held up her hand in victory. Last season, Paul was in shambles as the votes were read and looked visibly upset following his loss.
