The unscripted spinoff attempts to create a family-friendly Christmas-themed event by contextualizing the challenges as ways to help Santa Claus. While it's mildly charming, the intention behind it is so badly gift wrapped that it's easy to see all the strategizing and competitive behavior the parent series is known for. There's some friendly socializing, but some cast members reference former problematic relationships in ways that aren't very jolly. Some even shed their holiday spirit by openly admitting that they will do turn on people if they must to win the prize money. Big Brother fans may appreciate this as a gift, but others may find Big Brother Reindeer Games to be deserving of a big lump of coal.
