BBOTT and why it sucked but also didn’t.

The title appears to be a bit incongruous, but it’s how I feel. I didn’t hate the format. After about three weeks of voting, I realized that America by and large shouldn’t be allowed to vote for things, even for something silly like BBOTT.  I am not a fan of the care package. I think voting for a nominee and have nots is enough. We don’t need a care package or a vote until finale. I think having that much power skewed a lot of the game and ended up making people insane. The house was split truly or the first time since season 6. Season 6 still goes down as one of my favorites, but it shows me that the Nerd Herd would’ve been America’s favorites that year if we transplanted it and put it in 2016. That’s depressing to me. Janelle, Howie, Kaysar, James would have been hated and treated like crap and lambasted across Twitter. In Season 6 America agreed one one thing, the Nerd Herd sucked. They were sanctimonious, holier than thou cry babies who begged and pleaded for everything.

And this year the Nerd Herd is the Plastics. (I refuse to call them the ballsmashers when they only managed to smash one pair of balls in Scott) took over the roll of Nerd Herd 2.0. With their constant pandering to America, to claiming they were the good, normal people and everyone else on the other side were pieces of crap,  (Shelby and Morgan’s words) to believing they could play the game however they wanted, including breaking multiple deals (Alex) but bitching when the other side did as well, it was hard for me to stomach them, let alone rooting for any of them to win.

On the other hand you had the Misfits who were loud, brash, uncouth, and said pretty much whatever the heck they wanted to at any given moment and didn’t pretend they were the “good, normal” people. They were jerks and they knew it. They knew they were being petty and played it up. They got upset and annoyed and they wondered why America voted against them (some of the time), but ultimately they got over it. They didn’t spend hours begging in the storage room for America to vote their way with the have nots, nominee, or vote. The Plastics did. In fact, it got so bad I refused to watch DRs from Alex while she was in the house, because it was literally all she did. Her only game was to beg America. And she was considered such a great strategist and gameplayer. And nothing she did came close to being good game.

And it boils down to this, the Plastic stans are wannabe social justice warriors (sjw’s). They like to think they’re sticking up for women (because Jason said some bad stuff about Shelby), they want to root for strong, intelligent women to win the game, and they dislike how mean and petty the Misfits were. And then they also liked to tell people, “Oh we’re just rooting for the underdog.” Well, when the plastics won the majority of the care packages and hoh’s, it’s hard to call them underdogs. When confronted with this truth, their true colors showed, “We just don’t like Kryssie. She’s gross. She’s annoying, she burps too much, she whines, she doesn’t play the game.” Or, “Jason is a returning player with a built in fan base.” “Justin is too good at the social game, he doesn’t try hard enough at the other parts of the game.” Yet the entire time they are claiming these things, Shelby, Morgan, Alex, Scott, and Whitney are blasting Danielle. They call her a slut, the make fun of her body when she wears a bikin, they call her a vile troll, they imply she’s a bad mother for having a showmance, for daring to leave her kid to even go on the show. This was pretty much a daily occurence. If I flipped on feeds to the Plastics they were making fun of Dani or some member of the Misfits.  And then I’d flip over to the Misfits and it was usually them talking about sex, Neeley twerking, or doing something stupid. They had fun. They were coarse and rude and had conversations that would make grandmother’s blush.

Jason did say vile things about Shelby, but Shelby also said vile, horrible things about Dani, Justin, Kryssie, and Jason. Morgan said horrific things about Dani, Justin, Jason, and Kryssie. Whitney called Dani a slut multiple times, and Scott said nasty things about Kryssie and Dani.  In my viewing of BBOTT, I saw far more shit talking and cruel talk come from the Plastics in regard to the other side. After BB18 and listening to Michelle and Zakiyah constantly shilt talk the other girls, I wanted nothing to do with the mean girl crap. I’m over it. I’m tired of these girls getting cast and America thinking it’s okay and that it’s just the way the game is played. And I sure as shit do not want to reward anyone 250K for it.

I chose to be Team Misfits after a few weeks on Twitter when I realized the majority of the people supporting the Plastics were as vile and cruel and hypocritcal as the people they were stanning. I particularly recall being told if you like the Misits you are probably not good at being a human being. With the constant derision and attacking and having RHAP, Reddit, and Jokers bashing the Misfits and their supporters nonstop for a full season, I realized that I’d rather support the Misfits, the outcasts, the people that the mainstream want to ridicule and turn their backs on.

This season was ruined for me and by the supposed super fans of the show, who showed they are worse than casuals when it comes to the show. They think by saying, “Oh, it’s just meant to be fun” while tearing down people and calling them dumb, or bad at being human beings, or insulting their intelligence because they want to vote for someone you don’t like or vice versa, it’s okay. It’s not no harm/no foul. Having a split fandom isn’t actually a good thing or a fun thing, especially when people are being insulted by supposedly neutral parties. It’s not okay how a majority of this fandom acted this fall about BBOTT (I’m including myself in this). It’s not okay that people were told by update sites and podcast sites that their opinions didn’t matter and that if they supported one side over another that they were dumb or bad at being human beings.

 

I honestly hope that they don’t bring back BBOTT2 unless they change it. I want to see old school Big Brother. Get rid of the twists, no returning players, the key wheel back, and good old fashioned strategy with minimal involvement from America. That’s what I want. I don’t want care packages, or a nominee vote, or an eviction vote. And I want people to stop acting like fucking fools about BBOTT. But that ship has sailed.

 

(And in case you hadn’t got the clue, I’m 100% voting for Jason in the finale. It was gonna be him or Shelby for my vote)

Week 1 Thoughts : BB18

Well, it’s official. Big Brother season 18 is upon us.  Last Wednesday the season premiered and Thursday night the feeds started. I stayed up late, as per usual, to watch the beginning of the feeds. During the premiere episodes, I was definitely turned off by the newbies, and I had hope that Paul and Zakiyah would get off the newbie bandwagon of targeting all the veterans. This was mostly due to the fact, that these newbies have no idea how to play the game. An alliance of all newbies wouldn’t work in this season and I don’t think it would work in any season unless they were superfans or people who had at least seen one full season of Big Brother. (I’m looking at you Jozea, who admitted to only watching Frankie scenes in #BB16).

Thankfully, when feeds came on, Zakiyah had flipped to the vets. Paul, Victor, Jozea, Bronte, Bridgette, and Natalie were the only remaining newbies in their “Revolution” alliance.  Michelle, Paulie, Zakiyah, Corey, and Tiffany aligned with our returning players: James, Davonne, Nicole, and Frank.  I am here for The 8 Pack+Paulie  alliance. Out of everyone in the alliance, I like them all, except for Corey.

Speaking of Corey, on Saturday night in the house, he told a horrific story of trying to set a goat on fire along with his Frat bros. while he was in college at Texas A&M. The story was horrible. The worst part, he told it while laughing and grinning like it was the best thing he’d ever done and told them, “Do you want to hear a funny story?” Paul who was drunk off his ass, was the only to defend the goat and told Corey that it was wrong and mean to set a goat on fire. Twitter exploded, I was furious, and people were shocked and outraged that someone would admit on a national platform that they participated in cruel animal torture and abuse.  That being said, CBS doesn’t care about any of that stuff, so he will stay in the house, continuing to make sexually confusing comments about the other guys, all while flirting with Nicole and talking about his past girlfriends and sexual exploits with girls.

Listen, I have no idea what Corey’s deal is when it come to sexual orientation and frankly, it’s none of our business if he is gay, not gay, or confused. That being said, the amount of DRs already where he talks about how great all the guys’ bodies look is weird. Not to mention the times he’s called other guys like Victor and Paulie sexy. I think CBS is exploiting him in that regard and I think it’s wrong. This leads to me an event that happened on feeds in the first hour they were on. Jozea, Tiffany, and Corey were on the living room couches hanging out. Corey was telling them about a bar he worked at called “The Trophy Room” in Dallas, Texas. He talked about how he got hit on all the time by gay guys who offered him money to go home with them, or tipped him lots of money, or just hit on him. He seemed to be bonding with Jozea and having a good time. Jozea starts joking around that he and Corey are going to be in a showmance called “Cozea” (Tiffany’s name idead). Corey plays along for a bit, until he realizes live feeds are on. He immediately apologizes to family for his behavior. This is when Jozea goes into three other rooms to find the rest of the houseguests to loudly inform them of what happened and how Corey freaked out when he realized feeds were on.  This bothers me a great deal. Corey might be gay, he might just be questioning, or he might be interacting with someone who is gay for the first time in his life and needs some time to process. Instead of being given that, Jozea goes way over the line and continues to press and issue that Corey clearly doesn’t want to be pressed on. This has led to Corey severely disliking Jozea and to the point where Corey has said if Jozea doesn’t leave him alone,(i.e. rubbing on him, getting into bed with him, hitting on him) he’s going to “drop-kick” him. I don’t condone violence at all, but Jozea seems to lack an awareness of what’s going on around him.

Jozea is completely oblivious and delusional though to how comes across to most of the players on the other side of the house. He has dubbed himself the Messiah of the house because he saved the newbies. He believes he’s the glue that holds all the players together. He’s also said things like, “I love everyone, but Nicole, fuck that bitch,” all because Nicole was disrespectful in nominating the only person in the house everyone liked. He’s held at least three house meetings and wants to hold more.  He believes that everyone should run all strategic ideas by him before they do anything. He is ridiculous to a level that even Frankie never achieved.  He has his minions in Paul, Victor, Bronte, Natalie, and Bridgette. He is Devin on cocaine. Devin was terrible at the game and hold some ill advised meetings and started an alliance  of eight people. However, he almost immediately blew up his 8 person alliance, because people didn’t like that he was nominating for personal reasons instead of strategic. Jozea, however, thinks he’s formed an entire house alliance against Nicole, Tiffany, and Paulie. So basically, he thinks he has a 12 person alliance. Jozea’s game play is so delusional and so bad, that I wonder if he was told by production to act like this for more a larger stipend.  He got put on the block because he told Nicole to her face that he wanted her gone, since she already had her chance and blew it. Problem is, Nicole was HoH.

Which leads me to Paul. Paul is basically Jace from last year. Playing WAYYYY to hard, way too fast. The problem with these players is that they are recruits who don’t know quite how the game is played, but are so competitive they have to play the game. They normally end up sinking their own game in the irst week, because of it. Paul is also loud and obnoxious and has said some super rude and mean things about some of the girls in the house.  He ended up being put up by Frank, who won the ROadkill challenge. This sent him into a spiral of “Who hates me,” and “Fuck everyone”. He’s been leading the charge to against Tiffany and Michelle because who knows. He changes his mind daily on who he wants gone.

Then we have Victor. This guy claims to be a fan who has watched past seasons. I do believe him, since he knew some of the past twists and how some of the things worked, but overall, no idea how strategy works in the house. He’s also joined the “Vets out!” group. He’s also been extremely rude to some of the girls. He’s all about the bromances. He went in wanting a showmance, but apparently dumped Natalie before feeds even came on. According to Tiffany and Zakiyah, Nicole was changing into a bathing suit and said, “What kind should I wear?” Victor replied, “A one-piece to cover up your awful body.” They also said he hoards food, tells some of the girls they shouldn’t eat certain foods because it has too much fat, and when they got alcohol on Friday night, they only had 2 bottles of wine. Nicole got her bottle of win from her HoH basket and decided to join them. Victor took her bottle, gave her a tiny  glass and then took her bottle of wine to drink for himself. This really bothered Tiffany and Zakiyah who decided they’d take a bottle of wine the next time they got one to replace the one Victor stole from Nicole. The next night they got alcohol again and they took the bottle. Victor threw a fucking fit and told Nicole, “If the house gets wine, it’s not your right to take it. Don’t be greedy.” This has not settled well for the girls who despise him. He has a terrible social game so far. I don’t see him lasting long as he’s pissed off everyone on the other side of the house.

In the middle of the house, we have Natalie, Bronte, and Bridgette. They call themselves the “Spy Girls”. This alliance is definitely not made up of Mensa members. Bronte is the worst offender of these girls. Bronte is 100% against the vets. She hates Nicole apparently for being dumb and going against “what the house wants”. She’s used the “We’re good people” defense as to why she wants to get rid of the others. She would have fit in perfectly in #bb6. She legit doesn’t know how to play  this game and her strategy at the beginning of the season has not been seen once. She’s pulled some really stupid shit in the house already as well.  With Paulie in the block, she’s gone around and made fun of him and told him to his face she can’t wait for him to watch from home and that he’s an embarrassment to his brother. She also hates Michelle, Tiffany for being shady. She constantly tells anyone who listens that if they vote against what the house wants they’re going home. Little does she know, she’s doing that exact same thing.

Bridgette came in looking like a fish out of water who didn’t belong. That being said since feeds came on she’s proven herself to be a rat floater. When Jozea held his first house meeting to basically call himself the Messiah again and tell everyone that he’s staying no matter what. She claims she has to go to the bathroom and goes upstairs (really she’s been spent to spy on the vets). She goes up and tells Frank, who is her team leader that she doesn’t want to vote with them against her own teammate. The vets pump her up and tell her to vote how she wants to and that it’s okay to break away from that group. After the meeting breaks up, she immediately goes downstairs to Jozea and throws Nicole under the bus and tells lies about what she said in the room. Unfortunately for Bridgette, Nicole went downstairs herself after the meeting and asked James (who barged his way into the meeting) if the meeting was over. Natalie was sitting there and asked her how she knew about the meeting. Nicole told her the truth that Bridgette told her. Natalie flipped out and told Jozea. Jozea, Paul, and Victor immediately went into panic mode, for Lord knows what reason. Paul and Victor go to Nicole and throw Bridgette under the bus and tell Nicole that it was Bridgette’s idea to go up to her to get more information to take back to them. They tell Nicole everything Bridgette said and did when she went downstairs. Bridgette is now disliked and distrusted by pretty much both sides. She will not last in this game. I honestly have no idea what she was thinking, but she blew up her own game.

Natalie, however, is a ray of cuteness and sunshine. She doesn’t speak ill of anyone. She is aligned with the Revolution alliance, but I think that’s because she liked Victor a lot and that’s who she’s spent most of her time with. She’s also close to Bronte and Bridgette who hate the vets and want them gone. She has a natural social game because she’s so likable. In the past few days, she’s gotten really close to James and Tiffany has made an effort to talk to her and hang out with her as well. I think Natalie is in the best position of all the newbies because she hasn’t pissed anyone off from the 8 pack +Paulie alliance. I think her downfall is that people hate Victor and will automatically put her up beside him. She has potential however.

Zakiyah is in the 8 Pack+ Paulie alliance. She’s a newbie who is a true superfan. That automatically makes her more tolerable than half the newbies. She is super close to Nicole and Davonne, which helps her as well. That being said, I have some major issues with her game. She is in LOVE with Paulie. It’s pretty obvious. She literally follows him around the house and sits in his lap, plays with his hair, inserts herself into conversations he’s having with other people, and in general looking thirsty as fuck. Now, I have nothing against showmances, but in this case, she’s reminding me of Jessie with Nick in season 15. It’s over the top. It would be different if Paulie was the one initiating even half of these interactions, but he’s not. In fact, I’ve seen him initiation one conversation with her and I’ve been watching feeds for pretty much 4 days nonstop. However, he actively initiates conversations with Nicole and Tiffany. None of these conversations are romantic, however. He simply hangs out with them and talks either game related, or just life related. He doesn’t even talk game to Zakiyah. She’s noticed this, which is why she HATES Tiffany. Davonne naturally distrusts Tiffany, because she looks so much like Vanessa, and Vanessa had a hand in her going home. Zakiyah took this opportunity to attack Tiffany and make her look like a pathetic freak for pursuing Paulie. She’s gone to multiple people on the other side and planted seeds about Tiffany being untrustworthy because of the Paulie thing. However, she’s not aware enough to realize that both Tiffany and Paule are distrusted now. The major problem is Tiffany is in multiple alliances with her and if she finds out what Zakiyah’s been doing  she’s toast. I had high hopes for Zakiyah. I liked her, but I do not like the petty, vindictive shit because someone you’re crushing on prefers to talk game to someone else. You’re not here for a showmance, you’re here to win 500k. I really hope she calms down when it comes to Paulie and plays the game logically.

Michelle is another newbie superfan. Nicole, Tiffany, and Frank really like her. She’s in the 8 Pack+Paulie alliance, for numbers reasons. However, she doesn’t like or trust Paulie and rarely interacts with James, Zakiyah, or Davonne. Out of everyone in the alliance, I think she’s at the bottom  because she only talks to 3 people in the alliance consistently. She’s also severely disliked on the other side of the house. I don’t think she’s going to be c omp beast and her social game is not great, so she might be an early eviction.

Paulie

Paulie is as adorable as Cody was in season 16. Hes super nice and seems pretty chill. The girls flirt with him, some more than others, but he talks game to Tiffany, Nicole, and Frank. He wasn’t added into the 8 pack alliance, but that’s because he was on the block and not in the room. If he stays Thursday, which I think he will, I think Frank and Nicole’s teams will align and he’ll be in a pretty good spot moving forward. He gets along really well with Tiffany and Nicole for the females and Corey and Frank for the males, so that pairing would be perfect for him. I am definitely rooting for him moving forward.

 

Tiffany

I love Tiffany. She’s way more mellow than Vanessa, so far at least. She’s had a few things where she freaked out, but that’s because Zakiyah and Day are fucking with her and telling her things that will make her go crazy. If she remains calm and stays loyal to Nicole, Frank, Paulie, I thinks he’ll do okay. Day/Zakiyah may be the downfall of her game though.

Davonne

I had high hopes for her coming back. She teamed up with the vets, siblings, and newbies who are smart. However, she’s starting to turn paranoid like she did in BB17 and not trusting her alliance members. She’s already started to speak out againt Tiffany and has purposely and deliberately tried to fuck with her to make her mad. I am about the Fatal Five, so if Day continues to target one of her own, I’m going to drop her to the bottom of my list.

 

James

James is literally doing nothing but flirting with Natalie, having a crush on Nicole, and playing pranks on Frank. He talks game only to his alliance, and has as much fun as possible. However, the other side seem to think HE’S the mastermind, which is weird, but hwatever. As lon as he can bust out some comps wins, he could make it far again. He has a great social game again already.

Nicole

Nicole is my girl. I LOVE her. I loved her in BB16 and I love her now. I am for whatever alliance she is in and whatever alliance she wants to start. he is loyal to a fault, and is starting to play a bit more strategically this time around. I love her all girls alliance in Fatal Five, but Day and Zakiyah are going to be the destruction of that and I hope Nicole realizes that. She’d do better to team up with Paulie/Frank and Tiffany and have a solid 4 person alliance with Corey and Michelle added in. Davonne and Zakiyah are loose cannons and play with too much emotion.

Frank

Frank the Tank is a beast. I think he is in a great spot. Of the vets, he’s talked about the least as a problem. His social game is on point this year and has made friends with pretty much everyone. I think if he sticks with Nicole/James he’ll do great.

 

Here is my ranking of worst to best players based on social, strategic and competitve play

  1. Frank
  2. Nicole
  3. James
  4. Paulie
  5. Davonne
  6. Tiffany
  7. Michelle
  8. Zakiyah
  9. Natalie
  10. Bridgette
  11. Bronte
  12. Victor
  13. Paul
  14. Jozea
  15. Corey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So we’re getting close to 1/2 way through the #BBCAN4 season and after spending hours watching feeds and shows, I am going to present my thoughts on the house guests excluding Paige because she wasn’t on the feeds. Up front warning, most of them are not nice, because frankly, this season is sort of a dud compared to last years.

Alphabetical Order:

Cassandra:

04004e1875c62bc37e49ffdcd6a46da9.jpg

I didn’t mind her until I realized she hates the girls more than Maddy/Loveita/Kelsey combined. Her sole goal is to be the one left standing with all the guys. She’s also fucking annoying to go along with acting like a petty whore.

Christine:

not-cute

She was a grown woman acting like a 12 year old. I really REALLY didn’t like her. She literally sat around in cheetah print for days at at time doing nothing but bitch about other girls in the house. She was worse than the young girls! It wasn’t cute. Her butthurt when she left was misplaced. She brought her eviction on herself. Good riddance, honestly.

Dallas:

tumblr_n2sm0re33X1r317bvo1_250

 

He’s a gross piece of shit along with being delusional as fuck. He somehow thinks the public wants him against Tim. He’s just too stupid to function. I really dislike him.

Jared:

tumblr_inline_mjjvjkD5QT1qz4rgp

His whiny, annoying voice is enough to make me want to burst my own eardrums. He needs to get medicine to get rid of his sinus stuff. Unless he’s one of those annoying people who just always sound nasally. He also thinks he’s the on the “good” side of the house. I hate people like him. We don’t need another nerd herd.

Joel:

giphy (11) copy 3

Look Joel, I get it. This is the first time in your life that you’re being accepted and able to hang out with the cool kids. The problem is that you’re letting it affect your game and your strategy. You don’t have to listen to them. In fact, you shouldn’t. I’m starting to really dislike you, because you won’t stand on your own two feet and just do what you want.

Kelsey:

giphy (3) copy 2

I legitimately hate her more than I hate anyone else. She’s still technically around in the side room, but I cannot stand her. She is the epitome of mean girl who thinks she’s good, delusional as fuck, and has some incredibly racist stuff. I really, truly despise her.

Loveita:

tumblr_n3dm8odwio1qikmd9o1_500 (1)

She never stopped fucking talking game for one second in that house. She’s also a self proclaimed super fan and she was AWFUL at the game, which makes me angry at her. I don’t want her back in the game, but I’d take her over Kelsey any day.  Mainly because I know she’s too annoying to stick around much longer after that.

Maddy:

83220-taylor-swift-gif-all-you-are-i-sfvz

Typical mean girl. Hates other females, wants to get rid of them all and be Britney’d. I’d be meaner to her, but based on stuff she’s said on feeds, I thinks he’s an immature and insecure girl who needs to grow the fuck up.

Mitch:

tumblr_lxjupgSgSn1qcppaho2_400

He’s playing Andy from #BB15’s game. It wasn’t cute then and it’s not cute now. His only redeeming quality is that he’s not a terrible person. I just really dislike his game and I think he’s overrated. Plus he comes off as disingenuous to me and I don’t like people like that. And if you are going to be like that, you better have the fucking game to back it up, and sorry he just doesn’t.

Nick:

giphy

I know that I’m supposed to keep Nick/Phil together, but Nick is totally pointless and worthless as a player. He adds nothing to the house, other than being an annoying creeper around Maddy and he adds an unfair advantage to Phil by having a built in alliance member. I just really find it annoying that he’s in the house taking someone else’s spot.

Nikki:

tumblr_maaoxsU5VD1rtc9of

She has her moments of entertainment, but more often than not she’s just being a fucking psychotic lunatic about Tim being close to Cass or about Maddy laughing at her once. I wish she had more sane moments and less full on psycho moments. Of all the girls though, she’s the most tolerable.

Phil:

635856203092895516-1785215971_tumblr_n3rtpbrHJz1s266z3o1_500

I want to like Phil, but he makes it incredibly hard due to the fact that he swears he’s not aligned with anybody, but then goes out of his way to tell way too many people his agenda. And then when he does get into an alliance he immediately goes to the other side and blows it up and he has a bad habit of doing this. I don’t know if he thinks this is solid strategy or he’s really fucking stupid. Either way, I can’t with him. The thing that really bothers me is how rude he is to his brother and claims Nick is going to ruin their game. Umm, Nick doesn’t talk game to anyone because you forbid him. You’ll be your own undoing, dumbass.

Ramsey:

9cc2541154d6847c119340234ae098b3

Ramsey is a very nice, sweet guy. He’s not suited for this game. He aligned with the wrong people, is set on a showmance with a player who is doomed, and refuses to do any moves that will benefit him, because of his integrity/honor. You’re playing big brother, not at church, Ramsey. I wish they’d stop casting people like this.

Raul:

tumblr_mzxuuq281H1toxnu4o1_500

Raul is so annoying. I hate his outfits, his voice, and his overall attitude that he is somehow owed something by people in the house. I really dislike how ungrateful he is as well and sometimes just plain rude. I want all of the turd wheel alliance gone with him going next.

Sharry:

1304

I liked Sharry, until she sat around and didn’t campaign. Then she got super offended that Loveita campaigned against her. Did she not realize how the game worked? It was super frustrating rooting for her and wanting her to stay, but realizing she was too busy being butthurt that she got put on the block because she was close to Loveita and somehow as the pawn couldn’t get the votes to stay. This goes to show you why you campaign for yourself when you’re on the block.

Tim:

ed9e0b008c6ab0001765f6eed8ad7e51

What to say about Tim? Basically he reminds me of Jack Sparrow. He’s a lunatic, but he knows it and owns it. He does and says stuff that is off the wall and people in the house just eat it up. I don’t think he’s as good at the game as other people do. I just think he’s good at getting people to like him and smooth things over when they get mad. I do think he will be a jury member though. I don’t see him making it to the end, because his personality is just too big. Of all the houseguests, he offends me the least. Mainly because he’s entertaining as fuck and doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks of him or his gameplay. On top of which, his stories are fucking great. I just wish he’d stop hanging out with Cassandra.

 

As you can see, I’m not impressed with this season of #BBCAN4. I’m hoping it changes as we progress on, but my overall feeling of everyone is this:

Big Brother Winners Ranked

At the end of this month, Big Brother Canada 4 will begin, and I will lose about four months of my spare time as it will be devoted to live feeds and arguing who is better/more deserving of winning the game.  Then in June, another three months will be taken from June to September with Big Brother 18.

I am a huge Big Brother fan. It all started the summer of 2003, when the 3rd season of the U.S. version aired. I tuned in to the third week live and fell in love with the characters. I rooted for Danielle to win and was really pissed when she didn’t. Since then I have seen every season and since season 4 had the live feeds.

I spent every summer watching and analyzing games, people, and discussing things with people on the internet and looking forward to each Thursday night when someone was evicted. When Big Brother Canada started in the spring of 2012, I was instantly hooked and fell in love with Peter and Emmett and Jillian.

I admit to liking my players for a variety of reasons. Some has been as shallow as because they are hot, some are because of their intelligence, some are because they aren’t fake and just tell it like it is. Sometimes it’s simply for their ability to cause drama. So in that vein, I’m going to be ranking my personal favorite winners from worst to best. (This will include Big Brother Canada).

 

20. Maggie- While her game was technically very good and she was great at manipulating some really dumb players in the Nerd Herd, on a personal level I found her to be disgusting. The things she alluded to and made fun of on the live feeds have placed her here. I’m not sure any other winner will knock her out of this spot.

19. Adam- This guy was such a piece of crap. Like the worst personality ever. If there were a male equivalent of Maggie, it was Adam. Making fun of kids with autism, was this guy’s go to joke. He also served time after the show for starting a drug ring, and getting another true gem of a man, in Matty to participate. I highly doubt Adam was the brains behind this operation, as he was a bonafide dumbass in season 9, but he gets placed tied for 20th because he sucks so much on every level. It also has to say something for Ryan, that you must really suck if this guy was able to beat you.

18. Andy- Again, he had a technically decent game. He made it to the end by floating and strategically helping to cut people, but again his personality was so vile, I couldn’t root for him. After he took it very personal on Elissa and started making fun of her kid, for seemingly no reason, I was anti-Andy until the end. He seems okay now on social media, but I still can’t stomach watching the latter half of season 15, for the reason that he is unbearable. It always amazes me how much people try to defend Spencer, Amanda, and Andy’s actions towards her, because she was mean to Amanda a few times in the season. I’ll concede that, but Amanda’s outright targeting and relentless bullying of Elissa for almost a week was so over the top and cruel, that I am forever on #TeamElissa for season 15. Andy and Spencer just took it to an even worse level, that I still cringe at when I think of how horrible they were about another human being.

17. Jordan- I love her. The girl was sweet. She was 1/2 half of Jordeff. But she didn’t do anything in her season. She road Jeff’s coattails and he got her to the finals by giving her a HoH and by keeping the huge target off her. Now granted her social game was good, but with such  huge personalities like Jessie, Lydia, Chima, Natalie, Ronnie, Russell, Jeff, and Kevin that year, it was pretty easy for her to slide under the radar. Only Lydia and Natalie seemed to notice once they realized they no longer had their own meatshield in Jessie. I despised Natalie with everything I had, but in that season I thought she would win, based on her brilliant lie with Kevin to get Jeff to target Russell and because she had “friends” in jury. I’m not mad that Jordan won, but I don’t think her win is worthy of ranking on an elite scale.

 

16. Lisa- I could basically write the exact same thing as I did for Jordan. She only won because they allowed jurors to see diary room sessions. Danielle would’ve won hands down had that not happened. I never saw anything spectacular in her game play. I often even forget that she won the game. To this day I barely remember anything about her game, other than not voting Eric back in and Amy instead. So that was a good move, I guess? She was a coaster for most of the game. The reason I ranked her slightly higher than Jordan is because she knew how to keep out of the drama and let the other people go after each other. After the couples alliance went down the drain, she didn’t show much allegiance to Roddy and let Danielle do her worst. That was a smart move on her part. Outside of that, I don’t recall anything else she did. So with it being a win because production messed up, I can only place her win here.

 

15. Eddie- First winner of Big Brother. He was likable, he had a compassionate background story, and he knew what America wanted to hear. He was smart to play up to America. I’ve since watched this season and I can see why he won. He was intelligent and he honestly was the most likable person in the house that year. I am placing him here, since he didn’t have to play much of a strategic game outside of just not being a giant douche on tv.

14. Boogie- So this guy won All-Stars. I’m not even sure how he got on All-Stars, but that’s beside the point. This guy was gross. He was definitely misogynistic and outside of Dr. Will (who he knew was better at everything) treated everyone like shit. Like this guy went after GEORGE! Fucking Chicken George! He was an overgrown bully who was finally accepted by a cool person (Will) and used it to tear other people down. He was really insecure and didn’t know how to interact with people in a way that actually made them like him. Will orchestrated season 7 pretty well, however he ran into a buzzsaw by the name of Janelle, who with the help of Erika brought Will down. Boogie who was already at the end because he was dragged there, beat Janelle in a fluke, evicted her and then called Erika a bitch on tv. What a stellar guy. He was gross. He won and I’m rewarding him with this placement because of the game Will played in season 7. So this is for Will and not for Boogie. Because seriously that guy was the worst. (Thank god he was wayyyyyy more mellow in seaosn 14).

13. Rachel- Okay so this girl drove me insane on season 12. She was so needy, immature, and insecure. She truly didn’t know what it was like to be herself and just be a chill/calm person, because a hot guy was actually into her and paying attention to her. She took it so over the top and went as far as accusing RAGAN (the token gay guy of season 12) of trying to get between her and BRENNNNNNNNNNNNONNNNNNNNNN. (Imagine the whiny high pitched noise that came out of her mouth everytime she said his name in season 12). I despised her. Her hiding in the bushes and crying is still one of the most hilarious things to ever happen on the show. EVER.  Then she came back in season 13 and she teamed up with Jeff and Jordan. She actually listened to Jeff. I don’t know if it was because she wanted to work with them or because she had matured, but for a long time they were a fierce foursome. Of course Dani (who I liked to call Voldemort but with a nose) came along and torpedoed her alliance, for no other reason than she wanted to. She still to this day refuses to acknowledge that she fucked up her own game by targeting Jeff too early. (I also on a sidenote, had the pleasure of comparing her game to Ronnie’s from BB11 on Twitter and she got offended. So that was actually pretty funny). Rachel stuck with Jordan and that was to her benefit. When Porsche unleashed the duo power back into the house because she opened Pandora’s Box, she basically set herself up the for the win. Adam wasn’t going to win anything that season, Kalia was a sitting duck and she knew it because Porsche had been close to Rachel at the beginning, and Kalia took jabs at the vets every chance she got, even started that huge ass fight in the beginning of the season because she didn’t like that Jeff and Brendon ignored her. (I still can’t with her. She was one of the worst cast that year). So when Rachel got to the end it was no surprise that she and Porsche were sitting there. She won a ton of comps and finally shut her damn mouth, which allowed her to make it to the end, even with Daniele, Kalia, Shelli, and Porsche badmouthing her and saying things like they hoped she miscarried if she was pregnant in the house. Even during that time she stayed calm for the most part and ended up with a deserved win at the end. I really dislike some of the people from that season clearly.

 

12. Steve- Winner of BB17. I liked Steve for the most part. He stayed out of the drama, aligned himself with John and Vanessa and voted with the large voting blocks when he could. I’m placing him here, because outside of the end of the game, I don’t see his game on the level of a Derrick, Dan, Will, Hayden, or even Ian. I still don’t understand his reasoning in targeting Meg and Jackie. I mean, I certainly found Meg to be annoying as hell, but that’s not a reason to get rid of someone in the game. Jackie leaving didn’t do much of anything. I don’t know if he thought he was getting retribution for Clay/Shelli, because she was clearly with James/Meg, but I don’t get why he doesn’t put James up vs. Meg. He claims it’s because he heard Jackie was going to backdoor him, but since she’s kind of a package deal with Meg/James, maybe look into the source of that? I don’t know. It still makes no sense to me why he did that. Needless to say, I was glad that he won his season as Liz was trash.

11. Jon P- BBCAN2 winner. Jon was awesome. He was hilarious and he pulled off an amazing blindside on Neda that guaranteed he’d win. Not only did he win, he ended up dating the girl he backstabbed for a good bit of time after. I’m placing him here mainly for the Neda move, comp wins, and for the likability factor.

10. Drew- BB5 winner. I feel like Drew was a decent/pretty good winner. He had a good alliance with Scott, Jase, and Cowboy. He also had a super strong side alliance with Diane, which suited his needs until he had to cut her. I definitely appreciated that he was so likable and approachable. Other alliances felt like they could talk to him and he ended up gaining a lot of trust with multiple people. He also stayed out of most drama in the house and was able to easily deflect blame. In the end, I found him to be a bit bland but definitely a way more deserving winner than Cowboy.

9. Evel Dick- Season 8 winner. Dick was just that a huge dick. He was mean, loud, crass, and obnoxious. He went after Jen pretty much as soon as she entered the house and was able to get others to gang up on her. He was one of the biggest bullies the show has ever seen, and yet it worked for him. Whereas other bullies in past seasons have been loathed and bashed, Dick was able to do it with humor/sarcasm and by having enough gullible people to jump on board. He was able to get the people out before jury who he needed to and was able to trick others into drinking the koolaid to the point that he knew if he was at the end they were in jury they’d vote for him. He used psychological warfare and torture on some of them. In the end he won. It worked for him. His game is pretty hard to emulate simply for the fact that it’s pretty brazen game strategically and it’s not easy to hide/mask what you’re doing. I’m not sure this game type could be succesfully done again. (Amanda tried this in 15 and failed miserably. She made it quite far, but in the end she ended up universally hated by a lot of houseguests and fans alike).

8. Jillian- She almost didn’t win because Topaz voted for the wrong person. Topaz is an idiot. Jillian played a very strong competitive game. I’d place her up there on Janelle’s level of comp wins. Her social game wasn’t great, but she aligned herself with Emmett and it propelled her to the end. For being the first woman in BB North America history to beat a guy head to head, I’m placing her win here.

 

7. Ian- BB14 winner. The guy beat Dan head to head which puts him in the top 10. Granted, Dan got to the end playing a much shadier game than in BB10, but Ian played a pretty strong social game. Coming in as a huge socially awkward nerd, he played the hell out of people. He got Ashley, Dan, Britney, Frank, Shane, Boogie, Joe, and pretty much everyone outside of Danielle to fall for his weak act. He won strategic comps and in the end he was able to convince Dan that other people were bigger threats than him, plus he pulled off a huge blindside on Boogie. He’s in my top 10 winners for that alone.

 

6.  Hayden- BB12 winner. He was part of a final four alliance that took 3 to the end. One of the first truly successful alliances to make it to the end. He wasn’t the brains behind The Brigade, but knew a good thing when it fell in his lap. Plus it was his idea to have side alliances in Ragan, Britney, and Kristen. That gave them voting numbers. He was also 100% fine when Enzo wanted to cut Matt out of the Brigade, because he knew he’d have a better shot of winning if he got to F2 against anyone else. The way he played Kristen was brilliant too. He didn’t degrade her or make her feel like crap when she left. He wasn’t obnoxious or rude like Enzo and when they broke the news to Britney that she was being evicted, he was probably the most sensitive and genuine person about it. I really liked him as a person and his play was very good. He’s #9 for me all time.

5. Sarah H- BBCAN3 winner. Sarah is beyond a doubt one of my favorite people to ever play the game. She was one of the most conscientious, just plain outright awesome people in the history of the show. I don’t care if every twist went in her favor, I loved her and her win is one of my favorite ever. She read people brilliantly. She knew who was on her side and who wasn’t. She knew that she needed to keep Zach and Bruno close. Zach admitted on a podcast later that he really liked Sarah, she basically got him to trust her and he bought into. JP said the same thing. The turning point for Zach was when Bruno got a hold of him and showed him how much Sarah was manipulating everyone and that’s where she realized she had to get rid of Bruno. The middle part of the season was Sarah vs Zach and Bruno, and lo and behold, she managed to get both of them gone. She managed to convince Godfrey, another brilliant manipulator into taking her and she won over a guy. A very good player, even. Sarah winning BBCAN3 is my top 7 win of all time. Top 5 baby!

 

4. Jun- Jun mastered the floater game first. She was manipulative as hell and she did it so well that most people had no idea what she was doing. She was derided and hated across the internet for how she played and yet, now people are seeing her brilliance. The reason? She wasn’t a terrible person about it. Many people started comparing Jun and Andy’s game after season 15 and the majority of people seemed to agree that while both were floaters who ended up winning, Jun did it in a way that wasn’t cruel or degrading to anyone. She didn’t get along with some people, but who really gets along with every person in the house? She clearly had no love lost for Alison, but in the end her manipulations on top of floating to power, on top of getting everyone for the most part to trust her, is what puts her at the number 4 spot for me and the top played by a female. Jun is a delight now on Twitter and still follows Big Brother, so that makes her even more likable in my opinion.

 

3. Dan- I would place Dan higher, but I my personal preference has him 3rd. Dan went into season 10 and played the coaster game brilliantly until he needed to win. His blindside of April/Ollie and his loyalty/allegiance to Memphis and Keesha is what really made him stand out to me. His ability to manipulate people was stellar and his ability to knew when to keep his mouth shut and let other people fight it out, was honestly his best attribute in season 10. He didn’t do anything until he needed to do it. The fact that he won 7-0, shows how much people in his season liked him.

 

2. Derrick- Going in, I knew he’d have an advantage as a former undercover cop. People hated him for it and said he shouldn’t be allowed to play, but Derrick played this game almost flawlessly. On night one, he begins manipulating. He starts it by going to Christine/Nicole and plating seeds of paranoia  in them about how people aren’t who they say they are. He had a hand in starting the Donny’s not who he says he is train, and he somehow managed a week in to tell Christine, so that it would get out in the house. He buddied up to Frankie, Caleb, Cody, and Zach and had them broing out so hard that when Amber tried to put up Derrick, Caleb said she’d have to nominate him too. In fact, Derrick got Caleb to throw a BoTB, volunteer to go on the block, and to throw multiple competitions. Derrick knew how to get people to do what he wanted. Week after week when interviewed by Jeff, the outgoing houseguests would finally clue into Derrick’s game, until when they sat around at jury talking game, they were all pretty much already sold on his game. (Besides Jocasta, who frankly was a dud and was miscast). Donny admitted on a podcast that he almost voted for Derrick based on his final speech, but then remembered he promised Cody his vote in F2 (which he did). That’s how good he was. Donny hated Derrick pretty much from week 3 on. So for Donny to be willing to cast his vote for Derrick meant that he was a great player. He’s #2 to me and if he plays in an All Stars and manages to get far, he might just make it up to #1.

 

  1. Dr. Will- Was there every any doubt? For a guy who straight up is just a good looking dude, to not win comps and then basically tell people to their faces, “I’m gonna lie and I’m gonna betray you, and I hate you all,” and not only win, but make top 4? Yeah, he was a social genius. His competition game was weak. He barely won anything. But his social game, which to me is what sets BB players/winners apart, are the best the game has ever seen. He was a mastermind at manipulating people, getting them fall for his charm and good looks. He knew who to suck up to, who to befriend, and who to pander to. He had people eating out of the palm of his hand in 2 seasons and his only downfall in season 7 was not winning a vital comp at the end. Had he won and kept himself safe, I’m positive he would’ve beat anyone he sat next to, even Janelle. The reason I place him higher than Dan is because Dan’s social game in 14 was bad. He played a ruthless, cut throat game and made everyone hate him. He ended up in F2 and only got one vote and that vote from Danielle was a vote against Ian, who she hated far more than a vote for Dan. Dr. Will to me is that epitome of how Big Brother should be played.

My only wish is that we could see a season that has the elite winners and declare who really is the best Big Brother winner of all time. If I offended anyone by my analysis, well frankly, I don’t care, as it’s my opinion who is more deserving/less deserving.

I’ll see you back in here in a few weeks for the start of BBCAN4!
