Big Brother has had several notable showmances over the years, and maybe it is time to use that as a theme for a special season of the show.

A growing number of relationships that started in the house have also led to marriage, outpacing the success rate of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette over at ABC.

And wouldn’t it be interesting to see a special season of the show where the showmances competed against each other in a sped-up format?

Celebrity Big Brother has happened three times, each season lasting roughly a month during the winter. That’s where a season like this one could easily slide in.

It seems like something that could lead to a lot of drama, some interesting gameplay by the couples, and many recognizable faces trying to play the game again.

The trick would be convincing everyone to come back, but if they did it where the season lasted less than a month and there were nice stipends paid out, that might entice people to show what they can do again.

Possible Big Brother showmances for a themed season

Below is a list of the most recognizable showmances that are still going strong over the years. Some of them are pretty fresh, but all contain at least one person who helped create some good TV.

No announcement has been made about whether or not Big Brother will return with a themed or celebrity version of the show this winter, but maybe it’s time to try out a duos season with a relationship twist.

  • Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas (BB12)
  • Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder (BB11)
