For anyone who has watched Big Brother since at least Season 8, you should be aware of the infamous BB Unitard. The Unitard has been a recurring item in the house since that season. It has been "awarded" to houseguests through a POV competition. The said houseguest then has to wear the Unitard for the remainder of that week in the house.
During the Big Brother seasons, there have been different Unitard design's ranging from the Red Unitard made famous by Jen Johnson in Big Brother 8 to the Clownitard, inspired by Aaryn's Clowny Doll, worn by Candice Stewart this season. I have provided a detailed history of Unitard wearers at the end of this article.
While you maybe aware of the Unitard you may not be as aware of the infamous curse that with comes with the Unitard. In every season since the Unitard first showed up the houseguest who has worn it that season has not won Big Brother. As a result of it, a sort of "Urban Legend" has been born in the Big Brother house, the Unitard Curse.
Go back through the history of Unitard wearers, Jen Johnson BB 8, Sheila Kennedy BB 9, Michelle Costa BB10, Lydia Tavera BB11, Kristen Bitting BB 12, Jordan Lloyd BB13, and Frank Eudy BB14, and among them you will not find a winner of Big Brother season. Some have made it farther than others but no one has broken through and won the game once they have dawned that Unitard.
Which brings us to this season and BB15 houseguest Candice Stewart...in veto comp that will air on this Wednesday's episode of Big Brother Candice "won" the Clownitard. Already on the block this week, and with HOH GinaMarie wanting Candice out she could become the next victim of the Unitard Curse. If Candice does leave this week she would become one of only two houseguests evicted the same week as wearing the Unitard. The other was Kristen in BB 12.
Will the curse of the Unitard continue this season, or will Candice slay the beast and put to rest that "Urban Legend" of the Unitard Curse?
