The Top TenXW

1Marcellas doesn't use the veto - Big Brother 3

In the final 5, when Marcellas was nominated, he won the veto, and thinking he had a deal with Danielle, didn't use it on himself, and was evicted that week. - janiepierzina

Let's all keep in mind that the Power of Veto was this brand new power that came out in BB3. Marcellas was the first person to show America that if you want to win this game, the first rule is to trust no one. Ever since, players have seen the brutality of a "backdoor" and how detrimental the Veto actually is. - MrRealityTV

2Lawon volunteers to be nominated/evicted - Season 13

Sounds as dumb as it sounds. It was fun to watch though.

Almost felt sorry for him for being so stupid. - BlackDiamonds

Daniele must be the luckiest BB player in the world to see this repeat but worse than Dustin. Poor Lawon. He wasn't going to win anyhow but it was a boneheaded game move.

Super Power! What the ____.

3Dustin volunteers as a pawn - Big Brother 8

When Dick and Daniele were nominated against each other, Dick won the veto and used it on Daniele. He volunteered to be a pawn, and was sent home thanks to America's player. - janiepierzina

Got duped by America's favorite Eric when he ran his mouth about being ok being a pawn. Moron. - BlackDiamonds

4Howie nominates James and Sarah - Season 6

When Howie was HoH, Maggie convinced him that his ally James was going to betray them (which was not true), so Howie nominated James and his girlfriend Sarah. When James won the veto, Sarah was evicted, only making their alliance even smaller. - janiepierzina

5Mike tries to make Dick lose PoV - Big Brother 8

In a veto competition, Mike was told if he tried to make Dick lose the challenge, he would be nominated, but he did, and he was evicted. - janiepierzina

Mike blew his game for Kail. Kail! He wasn't a target that week til that power of veto comp when he tried intimidating Dick. - BlackDiamonds

Absolutely one of the dumbest move, Mike was not Dicks number one priority that week! All he had to do was be quiet. He felt that morals of protecting Kail was more important than getting put up and he's out for a reason.

The worst part was that he was safe that week

6Kaysar gives Jennifer HoH - Big Brother 6

When Kaysar was voted back into the house by America, he had the power to win HoH. Instead, he made a deal with Jennifer, saying everybody would work together to get James out, but he was evicted that week instead. - janiepierzina

7Ollie makes a deal with Dan - Season 10

When Ollie's allies were all gone, he could have won HoH, but instead make a stupid deal with Dan, asking for his safety, Michelle's safety, the choice of one nominee, and the replacement nominee if the veto was used. He thought Dan would go through with it, but instead he backdoored Michelle, followed by Ollie himself. - janiepierzina

8Brian makes too many alliances too fast - Big Brother 10

In the first week, Brian made an alliance with almost everyone, but he was caught, and sent home the first week. - janiepierzina

Brian was safe that week and was tight with HOH Jerry, and bith wanted Memphis ti be the replacement nominee, but Brian overplayed his hand and eight other houseguests including Memphis and veto winner Jessie who was the original nominee and said that Brian was playing all of the and told Jerry to put him up, Jerry did and Brian was blindsided because he overplayed and couldn't keep his mouth shut

9Dan nominates Joe for eviction - Season 14

Why evict the only guy you could ever beat in the finals?

Haha looks like people don't want to admit dan made mistakes and this was a $500,000 mistakes

Overrated player. deserved to lose. should have lost to Joe in the finals - noodbsallowed

10Jeff backdoors Russell - Season 11

Jeff let Kevin and Natalie convince him to nominate Russell, thinking he was going to betray him, which was not true. Then the next week, Jeff himself was sent packing. - janiepierzina

Jeff as always is stupid to fall for anything, the man goes with 2 desperate players who have nothing to lose, unless then going with
With a solid man who respected throughout the game. And the worst thing
About it is that he did not have the guts to say that he GOT GOT when he was talking to Julie Cheng the week after, JEFF YOUR A STUPID PLAYER.
Talking to Julie Cheng the week after.

I think that jeff was stupid when he did that and good thing he was evicted the next week. I wanted russel to win the game.

Jeff said that Russell got got but next week he got got

The Newcomers

?Ivette's lousy Exit DR Message to Rachel

Big Brother 6 had great power shifts, but one of the worst moves done was Ivette calling out Rachel's behavior (who was probably was the most level headed players of the Sovereign 6). This nasty goodbye message cost her Rachel's and Howie's votes on finale night as she lost 4-3 to Maggie! Watch what you say future houseguests in those exit dr sessions, jury management is important winning the game. - BlackDiamonds

?Shelli targets Da'Vonne for eviction for arguing with Clay - Big Brother 17

The Contenders

11Adria nominates Will - Season 5
12Danielle uses the POV on Dan in final 4 - Big Brother 14

Danielle thought that it would be in her and Shane's best interest if she used the veto on Dan to vote out Ian when, in reality, Dan was planning on evicting Shane all along.

An unnecessary move on a mastermind of the game and she acts like she didn't bring this on herself. Dan made his game on blindsides and you gave him another on a silver platter.

Had Danielle not taken Dan off of the block she would have definitely made it to the final 2 and even won if she was against Dan

13Frank keeps Dan after he would have been evicted - Big Brother 14

That was stupid by not getting the best player ever out who wanted to get him out

And the next week frank goes home and dan wins the HOH

14Cody taking Derrick to the final 2 over Victoria

Cody made weak moves throughout the game and played Derricks game. He was pretty much dragged to final 2 underneath Derricks protection. Sad sad player

I could argue Victoria could have actually won, she played a flawless floater/pawn game. - Turkeyasylum

Cost him the title and 500,000 dollars. Cody is stupid. But glad derrick won bb16 because Cody definitely didn't deserve to win.

15Ryan evicts Sheila in the final 3 - Big Brother 9
16Davonne wins Last Laugh and decides to cancel Jeff, Jackie, & Becky votes and not use it on Clay,J ohn, James - Big Brother 17
17Jessie tries to get Amanda out too early - Season 15
18Zach doesn't split up the Donatos - Big Brother 8

After Jessica gets evicted, we're down to the Final 5. Dick is HOH. America's Player Eric and Jameka are on the block. Zach wins the point of view, which at the Final 5 is supremely important. You can take a player off of the block, the one remaining non-HOH and non-point of view winner must go up in his or her place, and if you make a deal like, "Hey, I'll take you off the block if you agree to vote out the replacement nominee," you two have all the power and the HOH becomes meaningless as he wouldn't vote unless there were a 1-1 tiebreaker. Instead, Zach kept nominations the same, and then when he wins HOH the next week in Final Four (where the point of view is really the more powerful position), he decides to go after the Donatos, uselessly, I might add. Some have speculated that the producers "wouldn't let" Zach use it as they knew it would ruin their All-Donato Final 2 fantasy. Just as Eric wasn't allowed to use the veto to backdoor one of the Donatos the previous week, ruining both his and Jessica's game. The producers claim they didn't have enough time to see what America wanted, but then the next week they tell Eric whomever is called upon to lead the houseguests back into the house is America's target. ' rigged season.

19Dana nominates Alison and Jack - Season 4
20Jessie arrogance when he was on the block during week 3 and 4 - Season 10
