Big Brother is a reality show where people are locked in a house for 100+ days and compete for the prize of $500,000. In the past, there have been iconic players that went down in history as the best of the best. It is hard to narrow it down to only 5 but check out our top 5 best Big Brother players.
Best Big Brother Players #5 – Paul Abrahamian
Love him or hate him, you must respect his gameplay. In season 18, Paul was basically the pawn every week and escaped eviction. He was considered a very aggressive player, willing to confront others and wasn’t afraid to make big moves that led to having a hand in numerous evictions. He won six competitions, including the final Head of Household competition, where he brought Nicole Franzel with him.
Abrahamian returned on season 19 as the only veteran. Despite winning 8 competitions, he focused on manipulation this season. He played a strategic and aggressive game, controlling his allies and most of the nominations and evictions. He managed not to touch the block until final 3, losing the final HOH. In both seasons, he reached the final two coming in second both times.
Best Big Brother Players #4 – Tyler Crispen
Winning America’s Favorite, Crispen became the ringleader of his alliance, Level Six. His used his strategic mind and social skills to earn everyone’s trust and control many people’s votes. He was only nominated once in season 20 and was removed from the block by alliance member and later girlfriend, Angela Rummans. Crispen formed final two deals with every member of his alliance and others who weren’t in Level Six. He won six competitions and wound up in the final two with alliance member, Kaycee Clark. He placed second.
Best Big Brother Players #3 – Derrick Levasseur
The undercover cop stayed undercover throughout the season. He subtly influenced votes without ever making himself a target. During the entire 16th season, Derrick was never nominated and wound up sitting in the top 2, with his alliance member, Cody Calafiore. Derrick won the game by a landslide.
#2 – Dr. Will Kirby
Right away, he was unliked by fellow houseguests and most of America. He was put on the block nearly every week and during his first time on (season 2), there were no twists to save him. His strategy was everyone hates me, so why not take me to the final 2. Ultimately, he made it to the final 2 and won.
He returned for All-Stars (season 7) as the only winner to return to the game, convinced everyone not to vote against him again, even though he was the biggest target, and came in fourth place. He never won a single competition, but his lies, charm and true puppet mastering made him one of the best.
#1 – Dan Gheesling
Dan is the only player to have won by a 7-0 vote in the finale. He was never evicted and never had a vote cast against him. Playing the game twice (season 10 and 14), he made it to the finale both times, coming in first (10) and second (14). Despite never winning the Power of Veto himself, he got 3 other houseguests to take him off the block with the Veto.
He staged his own metaphorical funeral and convinced everyone in the house to not vote him out. He never won a single HOH competition in his first season. Dan manipulated other to complete his master plans and they still didn’t vote him out when he returned for his second season.
