Identical twins David and Greg Mathew, known as Logan David and Logan Greg respectively while in the House, are treated as a single entity in Nominations, Evictions, and Friday Night Live, and as winner contenders 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 rouse was successful during the switches until an injuring to one of them was found not on the other by the housemates. Big Brother decided to make the other housemates evict a twin on Day 75. David was evicted, and Greg stayed. Greg eventually won Big Brother over Tim, but he and David are considered joint winners.
