Best Big Brother US Players

The 10 best players to ever play the US Version of Big Brother.

The Top Ten

1 Dan Gheesling - Winner - Big Brother 10 Dan Gheesling is an American reality television personality who appeared on the Big Brother 10, which he won.

Dan's resume:
- In 2 seasons of playing Big Brother, Dan had never evicted and had never had a vote cast against him
-so far Dan is the only player to have won by a 7-0 vote
-fun fact: in 2 seasons of playing Big Brother, Dan has been on the block 4 times. Of those 4 times, he was veto'd off the block 3 times and by 3 different house guests (Memphis (BB10), Jenn (BB14), Danielle (BB14)). Dan has never won the veto to save himself--he got other people to save him.
-Dan's funeral... Enough said ;)

The proof is in the pudding, folks. I think that Dan's performances in both Big Brother 10 and Big Brother 14 speak for themselves; he is the only player to have made it to final 2 twice and he accomplished this goal by employing 2 different strategies. In Big Brother 10, he was the nice guy who threw competitions in order to build a weak persona until he found the right moment to strike and never looked back. He was a master strategist from the beginning and that stigma was ...more

Dan played an overall "perfect" game. He was a much stronger competitor than Dr. WIll, and was very good at manipulating his peers. Dan had the toughest road to conquer due to an alliance that blew up in the first week. However with perfect strategy (throwing competitions to make himself look weak) and the ability to control his emotions, Dan's target quietly diminished. When need be, Dan backstabbed, lied, and dominated the big brother house. Dan Gheesling is the greatest Big Brother player of all time.

he was a mastermind and won when he needed to and was able to control other great players in his seasons

By far the best player to ever play big brother, dans funeral was the best game move that was ever on the show.

2 Will Kirby - Winner - Season 2 William Kirby is a dermatologist, associate clinical professor of dermatology, medical textbook/dermatological journal article author, dermatology spokesman, and reality television personality. He is known for winning both the CBS reality show Big Brother 2 and The Price is Right.

The Evil Dr. Will is the best player in BB history hands down. In his first season he was outcasted right after the first eviction and at that time there was no point of view or special powers or game twists to save him the 20 million times he was on the block. In fact he was hated by his houseguests and America. And lets forget about his Chilltown alliance with Mike "Boogie" in this season, that was out the window by week four. It was his strategy of "everyone hates me so I could never beat you in the final two" that got him all the way to the end, when in fact after the seeing the season for themselves the houseguests decided to reward his master plan and crowning him the winner.

When he came back for All-Stars he was the only previous winner voted back into the house with the best of the best competitors and social gamers of the first six seasons, not a bunch of clueless newbies who watched one season before entering the game. The target on his back was ...more

The "evil" Dr. Will is by far the greatest player in Big Brother history. Anyone who disagrees likely hasn't watched his seasons or isn't intelligent enough to understand the fine tuning it took to make his amazing strategy work.

Both Dan and Will used other people to do their bidding. Dan played it smooth and won; Will intentionally got himself found out just for fun and still won. Both Dan and Will got a second chance to play. Dan got three pawns to shell off and a large part of his success was due to others making mistakes. Will entered as the biggest target/only winner with the greatest players to play the game at his time aiming for him and he still managed to make it fourth although most people agree he could have easily won if he put more effort into it (him and boogie had a deal to split the cash).

Will intentionally lost competitions to make himself look weak and would lose point of view's when he was on the block just because he was so sure of himself mentally. ...more

Easily the best BB player in history. While some put down his performance during HOH's and point of view's, that was the point of his game. He was behind the scenes and pulled off two miraculous come backs, Season 2 being dead to rights week after week being the #1 target of 10 people and then Season 7 being the only winner on the season and being the main enemy of Season 6 alliance, yet won Season 2 and got 4th on Season 7.

He is extremely brilliant and had great strategies all through the game and only had a allegiance to one person mike boogie.

3 Janelle Pierzina - Third Place - Season 6 Janelle Marie Pierzina is an American reality show personality known for her appearances on the sixth, All-Star, and fourteenth seasons of the American version of the CBS reality show Big Brother.

She was robbed two seasons in a row. she is a competition queen the only reason she never made it to final two was because people knew that she would win (they were right) and for will being the "master manipulator" she was able to evict him when he didn't expect it

A few points I would like to make about why Janelle is the best.
1. The Queen Bee was a competition BEAST, 3 HOH's in six weeks bb7.
2. She Eliminated Dr. Will from season 7 (Despite he and Boogie believing they had her "wrapped around his finger")
3. She is the only one who deserves a spot in the top 4 who did not use manipulation as a strategy, she was pretty straight forward
4. She made it to the final three twice and I will go so far as to say that the only reason she never made final two was strategy on someone else's behalf as both people who voted her out knew they couldn't win against her in the jury.
5. Also I will brashly state that in bb7 had it not been for a technically in part 1 of the three part HOH comp she would have made the final two, taken Erika, and won.she would have single handedly evicted both Chilltown members.
6.She made the final three against arguably the strongest house in bb7 (dr. Will, Boogie, Kaysar, James, Danielle, Erika, ...more

She is a great competitor and is pretty smart and had a pretty good game play.

The buxom blonde took the house by storm. Winning challenge after challenge, always speaking her mind, and giving the fans someone to root for.

4 Danielle Reyes - Runner Up - Season 3 Danielle Reyes, is most notable for being a contestant on the 3rd and All-Star seasons of the American version of the CBS reality show Big Brother.

Played the best strategy ever used in Big Brother history. She created a secret alliance with the most likeable guy in the house. She acted as if she was in an alliance with one side of the house and Jason on the opposite side and fed each other info while no one discovered their pairing. If either side won HOH, they would convince them not to put the other up. She used the "keep your mouth shut and your ears open" approach and everyone thought she was a weak player, hence why she was never nominated. Had there been a jury, I know for a fact we would be talking about the winner of BB3.

robbed... that's all that needs to be said, a bitter jury (not a jury quite yet) made a FLOATER win the game

Played a nearly flawless game. Would have won if there was a Jury House.

With Danielle losing BB3 to Lisa just shows poor sportsmanship because the houseguests hated Danielle for her ruthless acts and they forgot she did this all for her family. Lisa however didn't deserve a single penny out of that half million because she only did three things you can remember 1. She created peanut butter bikinis 2. She slept with Eric and 3. She floated. Picking a bartender over a mother is plain cruel. And her all star season her villainess status changed she was less villainous but still willing to win and made it to top 6

5 Derrick Levasseur - Big Brother 16 Derrick Levasseur is an American police officer from Providence, Rhode Island. He is best known for winning the reality television series Big Brother 16 in 2014.

Derrick is by far one of the best big brother players. No one realises that he is the one running the house and that he is behind almost all the reasonings for the nominations and evictions. He is at the moment the only person this season to not be put on the block and that is because everyone trusts him 100% in the game. He is playing with class and honesty and the alliances he has made have been well thought out in advance. Derrick Levasseur is one of the smartest game players to date. He is going to be seen as one of the best manipulators to ever play this game. HITMEN ALLIANCE FOR THE WIN.

Will was the self-proclaimed puppet master in season 2 and 7, but in season 2 he was actually the most targeted and hated player. Dan was never nominated because he was viewed as the low man on the totem pole and never a threat. Dan never "controlled" the house and was never making any decisions, but rather making the best decision for himself all game. Derrick has done something that no other houseguest has ever achieved. Derrick has single-handedly puppeted every single player this season, having a say in every single eviction and was NEVER nominated over the course of 55 combined nominations and renominations.

Derrick has not only played the weak card as Dan and Will did, he has played the mastermind, the puppeteer and the kingpin, but was never taken out by his own alliance a la Matt Hoffman, Kaysar and other alliance leaders. With Derrick winning BB16 he has solidified as the third member of tier 1 Big Brother players essentially playing a perfect game.

Derrick had been manipulating the whole house the entire time while allowing either Frankie, Zach, or Beast Mode to think they were running it. He always got what he wanted, but allowed others to take the fall for it. He was able to complete the Team America missions while keeping that a secret, even from Cody. Whenever anyone started to see Derrick was truly the mastermind he would cause them to go out the next week. The entire jury reliesed that and that's why he won. Although he wasn't a competition beast like Beast Mode and Frankie, he was able to avoid being put up on the block by influencing the HOH to put up other people. Yes Dan was never voted against, but Derrick never gave people the option to vote against him. Derrick definitely deserve to be known as the best player ever, but if not that title than the only suitable one for Derrick is second place to Dan

Derrick is SO good at Big Brother that he's almost TO good. He ended up making the season boring because it was very clear from about the third week that Derrick was going to win. He was good at compititions, but not good enough that he was seen as a threat. He managed to make everyone he was alligned with feel like they mattered and he needed them, assuring that no one would turn on him. He was able to make people who were no where near as dangerous as him much larger targets (Donny, Frankie, Nicole, Zach, etc). Not counting the final three, he was never nominated, an immpressive feat considering that the BoB twist made even more people get nominated at once. And to top it all of, he was a master at sending people out of the house thinking positivley of him. No one left the house thinking "Derrick got me out, what a jerk" they were thinking "Derrick got me out, damn he's good". While Derrick might seem like a slam dunk for the next All Stars, he might not be in it, because he's SO ...more

6 Dick Donato - Winner - Big Brother 8 Richard Louis Donato, known as "Evel Dick" Donato, a bar manager from Los Angeles, California, is the winner of the reality game show Big Brother 8. He and his daughter, Daniele Donato, are the only family member pair to win the American Big Brother program's top two prizes in the same competition.

Terrible player. Used the loudmouth tactics to get what he wanted, yet at the same time kept putting a bigger target on his back. Wouldn't have won if it wasn't for the America's Player twist, and Danielle. Players like Russel, Amanda, and Zack who used this same strategy were not successful because they were not in a rigged season. This proves that this strategy is not good to use.

The loud mouthed father managed to get to the end with his daughter by his side. Something no other pair has ever managed to do.

1st season 8/ had to leave season 13. He was an good overall player good social game he was a good competitor and won over the jury even though he gave them a hard time in the house. Season 13 he made a good alliance had a great start could have won. Personally my favorite!

Terrible player. Used the tactics of intimidation to get what he wanted, yet at the same time kept putting a bigger target on his back. Wouldn't have won if it wasn't for the America's Player twist, and Danielle.

7 Daniele Donato - Runner Up - Season 8 Daniele Donato-Briones, was a contestant on Big Brother 8, and Big Brother 13 along with her father, Dick Donato.

She carried her dad through the game. She ended up in the final two chair but lost to her dad even though she won 2 HOHs and 5 POVs. Personally I think she is one of the best house guests to ever play the game.

One of the best players to ever play Big Brother. Amazing competitor, great game player. She left too soon in season 13 but I hope to see her in an upcoming All Stars season.

Daniele showed superior gameplay throughout the season such as her alliance with the Late Night Crew, which she potentially picked them off one by one. It was a great move for her to gain the information of the alliance's plans and use that against them. Also, she carried her dad all the way to the end with the giant target on her back with those competition wins.

Her and her father both put all they had into it! They worked their hardest to get to the end and never let anything stop them! I think they are probably the best duo that could have ever played!

8 Mike Malin - Winner - Season 7

Boogie is the bomb and has at times had the same drive to win just like Dr. Will, but him and Dr. Will had targets on their backs all season seven and still had Boogie win, he is definitely the best because he won all-stars. Winners have even thought he was a huge threat, hence why he didn't want to enter the house as a houseguest in season 14 and he was the only coach to not vote to join the game, he knew he was too big of a threat, Dan played a dirty game lying to everyone, Boogie is definitely the legend I would want to have on my alliance, him and Frank lasted longer in the house in season 14 than they should have. He is definitely the best player in the game ever

he won all-stars which put the best against the best!

The best. He won all stars with the best startegy hang behind will and jet in, this is an absolute abomination that he's not in the top three

Great player came back for season 14 and got the whole house to turn on janelle and keep his number one ally Frank stay in the game

9 Vanessa Rousso - Big Brother 17

Vanessa played a fantastic game. She controlled nearly every eviction, from beginning to end. She won 4 Head of Household competitions, and 3 Power of Vetoes. She ruled the beginning portion of the game with her alliance called "The Sixth Sense." They were in power up until Week 6, when James put Shelli and Clay on the block together, causing one member to leave with Shelli following the week after Clay. She had deals with nearly everyone. Covering her almost with almost everyone. Making deals with whoever, and everyone she went to fell for it. Up until the Final 3, she was able to control decisions, save herself with the veto, and win extremely important Head of Household to make dire moves furthering her game. She was able to talk her way out of tough situations when she was practically out the door. Overall, she played a fantastic game, socially, physically, mentally.

Vanessa was a strong player she controlled the whole game I have never seen a target stay so long for the first couple weeks Vanessa and her alliance called "The Sixth Sense" which had Shelli, Clay, Austin, Liz and Julia they controlled the game but Vanessa controlled every vote and eviction until final three there alliance was broke when James put Shelli and Clay on the block together bye bye sixth sense after that Vanessa was even stronger she was making scary moves risking her game that could go to an end but it didn't until finally three which everyone wanted her to be sitting in that chair she finally was Vanessa is the strongest girl player in big brother history if you don't agree your a loser but she cried to much if she didn't get what she wanted go Vanessa!

Vanessa Rousso gets trashed on because of her annoying behavior but truth be told she is really one of the best Big Brother players to ever play this game. Her manipulation skills are right up there with Dr. Will and Dan. I'd put her #3 on my top female list behind Dani Reyes and Janelle. She's completely legit, I can see why she's a phenomenal poker player.

That one moment where she convinced julia to go AGAINST austin in the bowlerina veto comp was PERFECTION

10 Jun Song - Winner - Season 4

Jun is an amazing player she is known for perfecting the floater strategy plus her game was nearly flawless she was never endanger of being eliminated. Using cooking in the kitchen to listen to others strategy was great and because of that she was always in a comfortable position. She also made a finale 2 pact with the most hated player that season to ensure her win. She was the best thing of BB4.

Season 4 winner Jun Song perfected the floated strategy and won by taking the least liked person to the finals.

Best player in her season and perfected the floater strategy. She played a great social game and always booted people off that were bad for her game. Her alliance with Jee helped propel her to the top and her alliance with Allison to final two caused her win. Basically had control of the votes swinging back and forth between two teams. Also, the first person of color to win the game and would remain so for a long time!

Very intelligent player who executed an incredible social game. Used her cooking skills and information about the entire house in her hands that made her a very good player. Manipulated Alison into doing her bidding and realized that her only chance of winning was to sit with Alison at the end even though she hated Alison just because the jury was very bitter and hated Alison more than Jun. one of the most calculated games I've ever seen and she deserves way more credit than she is actually getting. My favorite player of all time!

The Contenders

11 Rachel Reilly - 9th Place - Season 12 Rachel Eileen Reilly Villegas is an American television personality, a talk show host, an actress, and a reality show participant.

Probably the only person in big brother history that was both an emotional train wreck and a very good big brother player at the same time. How she won Big Brother 13 was a little bit of luck (in the form of convenient twists) and a lot of heart and determination. Would not be surprised if the producers asked the red head to come back for a third outing.

A lil luck? The cat that wrote this article is so bias. That Pandora's box was put in effect just so she could win. The writer of this article clearly favors competition beasts. Because Rachel's social and mental game simply sucked. And had it not been for basically everyone else, we would have forgotten about her twice. Earlier you said lisa Donahue did nothing. What she didn't do is have the game given to her by the producers. Rachel wasn't even a good villain, she was annoying. She even said she was a target from the gate. Did she forget the game is on t.v. and everyone knows that's a lie. I'm sorry, but some of your picks aren't good at the game of big brother, but rather good at big brother competitions.

Greatest comeback story in reality T.V. History. Was the most hated houseguest in season 12 and at the start of season 13. Yet towards the end of season 13, America began cheering for her and was happy when she won.

Rachel was an amazing player. As emotional as she was, she was able to survive season 13 with a huge target on her back. She aligned herself with Brendon, Jeff and Jordan and their power alliance helped her get to the end. She transformed from a hated player in season 12 to one of America's favorites. She definitely shouldn't be this low!

12 Eric Stein - 5th Place - Season 8

He honestly had the potential to be the best player of all time. The problem was that he had to do what America told him to do, and the remarkable thing about it was that no matter what he had to do, he found a way to not only make that happen, but keep himself in the game despite the target it put on him. He was able to flip alliances at any time to get America what they wanted, but unfortunately for him, at the top five, he was eliminated by the people America made him save, who he otherwise would've evicted weeks earlier.

I am 90% sure Eric would have won if he wasn't America's Player. The way he handled himself in the game, and thought every single route out, shows how genius his playing and tatics are. He had several chances to get the Donato's out of the game, unfortantly, he couldn't due to his AP statis.

I loved Eric! For sure my favorite player to play the game. He definitely had the potential to win the game with his smart tactics but unfortunately the America's Player ruined some of his potential. None the less, he was the master of persuasion and did the best a houseguest could possibly do in that position.

The best player to ever play the game! Would have won if not for the America's Player twist hanging over his head forcing him to keep the most unworthy final 2 in the game.

13 Mike Boogie - Winner

Such a mastermind, came back in season 14 but had his fate sealed by a 23 year old Chemistry student, Ian.

Just so y'all know, Mike's on this list twice.

He had a beast social game for his first two seasons and was a beast in physical comps in all 3 he is one of the best to ever play and always will be.

19, no way. Mike boogie is the mastermind, not derrick. He should be in the top 7, at least.

14 Memphis Garrett - Runner Up - Season 10

Memphis was very underrated he had a huge target on his back after winning the car and still made it to final two. I think Memphis and Dan had an equal part in getting the renegades to the end.

"Played a good physical game, and a pretty good social game too. Also him and Dan made one of the best alliances ever"

Memphis is a great lover

15 Hayden Moss - Winner - Season 12

Hayden was part of the best alliance in history and had a strong social game and made the correct decision in taking Lane over Enzo to the final 2 because he would not have won if he was sitting next to Enzo.

Hands down my favourite player in Big Brother! Personally I think Dan is the best but I couldn't vote against Hayden!

A decent winner, used a leader strategy to take the best alliance the show has ever seen to the end.

Won competitions while having a strong social game Dr Will and Dan didn't win as much comps as Hayden did. Hayden also made smart decisions throughout the game. He will definitely win the next BB All Stars

16 Nakomis Dedmon - 4th Place - Season 5

Nakomis, in my opinion, is one of the best players ever to enter the Big Brother house. She was a very capable competitor, winning 3 Head of Households and winning the Power of Veto to save herself from the block. Not only that, but she had a strong alliance, of which she was the unspoken leader. The main reason I believe she is such a strong strategist and player, can be said in four words: the six finger plan. This plan was one of the most initiative and intelligent ideas ever conjured up in the show's history. And if it wasn't for her, we wouldn't have what is now considered 'backdooring'.

The Six Finger Plan was one of the smartest, most impressive moves in Big Brother history.

The gothic chick that no one expected to do well came charging out of the gate with one of the series' best strategic moves - The six finger plan.

She created the back door plan which was effective in getting jase out of the house and James and Eric in s6 I don't know about kaysar the 2nd time but I'm pretty sure he played so the production changed it to a random draw on all stars and gifted kaysar James and jase a 2nd chance at claiming the money why no Eric he should get a 2nd chance because even though I don't like him he didn't have the chance to save himself with the power of veto

17 Ian Terry - Winner - Season 14

How is Ian not in the top five? Ian eliminated one of the best players in Big Brother history (Mike Boogie).
His season was very difficult since it included strong players like Shane, Danielle and Dan himself yet Ian still survived. Ian had a target on his back since day one, people were scared and intimidated of him since he was a super fan and very intelligent. On top of that, Ian beat Dan in the finale. Dan is considered to be THE best player ever yet Ian still beat him, by six votes. Although many people do say that this was just because the jury was "bitter" that just proves my point. Dan played a dirty game and upset a lot of people. Ian played a clean, strategic game and managed to not piss any of the jurors off. That is an important skill and is why he won his season. Therefore, Ian does not deserve to be sitting at number eleven in this list, he deserves to be in at least the top five.

Survived an early scare, and then positioned himself extremely well going down the line. Ian was in a "golden" position from Day 4 all the way to Day 48 -- the only people really going after him were people that would never be able to win HoH (Jenn, Joe, Ashley), while the ones that could win comps and wanted him out were evicted very quickly (JoJo, Willie, Janelle).

Sure he was clueless of any voting dynamics from Day 62 onward, but that's only 13 days of game, and he had a very good grasp (if not the best) of voting dynamics during the first 62 days. Also, to his credit, it doesn't really matter, as he nearly won out from Final 9 onward. $500, 000 well-earned.

Some people consider Dan Gheesling (BB10,BB14) to be the best, but Ian managed to play the more effective game regardless even when he was put up against the "Best Big Brother Player of All Time". Ian made sure to keep the advantage that came along with being the "Good Guy" of the season and it allowed him to get people he wanted evicted and make sure that their relationship and gameplay guaranteed a vote in the F2. Dan played dirty and brute forced his way to F2 by getting lucky with an alliance with Danielle that was more valued to her than Danielle's own showmance, Shane.

Though this is more of a rant, Ian Terry would have been the second person in Big Brother history to receive a perfect Win (Next to Dan Gheesling of course) had Dan not been so lucky as to find the emotional wreck of Danielle, he wouldn't have been able to use her, lie to her, and trick her into evicting her own showmance yet blame Ian Terry for the entire thing.

Danielle's single ...more

I hate that a lot of superfans want to discredit Ian's win because the bitter jury didn't give it to Dan twice. Ian did everything right that Dan did not. He had a better social game, more comps and the gamer in him took the best player final 2 instead of Danielle! Dan wasn't the only one who played better this season. Ian said once in order to win sometimes you have to beat the best. He did that and I respect him for that.

18 Britney Haynes - 4th Place - Season 12, 8th Place - Season 14

Britney is one of the most underrated players in Big Brother history.

In her first season, she managed to convince her biggest enemies (Brendan and Rachel) that she was in their pocket and probably would have had their jury votes in addition to Matt and Regan. She was a fierce competitor, winning 4 POVs and an HoH, and was well liked by everybody. She was the underdog hero that probably won if it wasn't for the Brigade (and even then, if her or Lane had won the final four veto, she would have beaten Lane or Hayden in the final 2).

In her second time around, she wasn't as much a competition beast as a power broker. She had the entire house invested in her and still managed to keep the target off her back. It was only a combination of Dan's brilliance and Frank's idiocy that sent her home.

Finally, she's the undisputed QUEEN of the Diary Room. Enough said.

Dan Gheesling himself, in his website blog, wrote "As if the combination of being able to win challenges and having a pulse on the entire house wasn't enough, she was able to wrap people around her (tiny) fingers. Britney had Shane locked down until his showmance got in the way. She also had Ian on a very tight leash (pun intended) and what was more impressive, is that Ian seemed to enjoy doing her bidding at any time...because of all these reasons is why she scared me most in this game and earned the #1 ranking amongst all the houseguests this season."

It was a treat to see her she was the good witch of big brother 12. She constantly made fun of Brendan and Rachel which is ok with me and I think she knows who America hates which is probably why people love her because making fun of the people who America hates is awesome. Thank you Britney you're a goddess at the game

First season, she was oblivious to a huge alliance. But in her second season, she played a very amazing social game and was aware to everything that was going on unlike her first season. She went from a funny entertainer to an underrated game player and she is very deserving of coming back once again.

19 Matt Hoffman - 7th Place - Season 12

Most strategic player in his alliance, The Brigade. Played most of the house into being his allies.
Created a lie about his wife being sick for sympathy, could have worked very well if he got to the end. Probably could have won if he hadn't lost the Brigade's trust.

He's held one of the most precious possessions in big brother the diamond power of veto I was afraid he was about to go home in that eviction then Brendan the idiot was shocked and thank god that phony Kathy went home before he did

One of favourite players not bias here but he has played a good game

One of the most underrated players in BB history. Matt was loyal and got stabbed in the back by his alliance. Up until the point he went home he carried his alliance. He won HOH every other week ensuring safety to his alliance members and made big moves to keep them safe.

20 Jordan Lloyd - Winner - Season 11

Believe it or not I honestly do think she is way smarter then what she presented herself, remembering part 2 of the finale night challenge I literally thought she was going to lose the memory comp but pulled it literally almost out of thin air (seemingly) and won the 3 part and took out Kevin who was the games front runner. Whatever you say she played almost under the radar won when absolutely necessary and kept a perfect social game.

Did not play the game, however it was her personality in the house that helped her win the game. Won for 3 reasons. First she had Jeff who was a bigger target than her, and at the same time it was tough to get him out. Second of all, she is probably recognized as the most nicest person in big brother history so who would have anything against her in the house? Third of all, she was a weak player and competitor so everyone would want to take her to the final two.

One of the best social games ever. Everyone gives her crap for having no strategic game and say she made no moves. She tricked Kevin into evicting Michelle instead of her and told Kevin that she would take him to final 2 and that was a lie that ended up winning her $500,000. Very smart girl with a great social game. Very good big brother player, almost won twice for a reason.

Worst winner ever. Would have been evicted without Jeff being handed by production the coup de tat

21 James Rhine - 7th Place - Season 6 James Rhine, is an American television talk-show host, actor, producer and model. He most recently appeared as a host and interviewer on "Celeb TV" in Chicago and is a recurring guest host on "In the Loop" on WYCC Chicago.

Best veto player to step into big brother. Changed the way big brother ran the veto competition by having random draw rather houseguest choice. James is the king of veto and should be ranked at least in top 10.

He was one of the more level-headed players in the 2 seasons he played.

Holds the record for the most point of view wins in history. He was a target throughout Season 6 because of him playing both sides of the house. When he tried aligning himself with Ivette he all but ruined his chance at a half million. Still a great competitor in my book.

Can't believe that dumbass Brittney is ahead of the veto king! Jordan Lloyd and Ian Terry included!

22 Drew Daniels - Winner - Season 5

Drew is the most criminally underrated player of all time! He was never at actual risk, created a dominating alliance, then flipped on that alliance, convinced cowboy to evict his sister to go to the final 3 with a showmance, aligned with Diane early even though he was gay, sniped down Diane, yet still had the twins and Diane campaigning for him on jury. He created the social game that we know and love today.

Flipping on his alliances and booting some of his closest pals helped this quiet guy win Season 5. Being likeable, handsome, and under the radar didn't hurt either.

The dude was not afraid to get blood on his hands and had an amazing well rounded game.

Drew played probably one of the best games to play
1) He was selected for every Veto competition and back then the HOH and nominees selected the competitors for veto.
2) He was never a final nominee for eviction. Meaning he never faced the chopping block.
3) He was the first Houseguest to set the records for most HOH's (4 and this record has only been tied not broken)

He played an amazing game.

23 Frank Eudy - Big Brother 14

Frank is a great Big Brother player, beloved by the fans. Week 1, he got screwed by a scheming liar named Willie Hantz. Luckily, Boogie and he convinced the house to keep him over Kara, someone who wasn't a threat at all. The next week, he won HOH and after that, his arch-nemesis Willie was expelled for being violent. So, he nominated Britney's team and eventually evicted Jojo. In Week 3, he nearly got out, but he was thankfully saved by the Coaches twist. In the next week, he formed an alliance called the Silent Six, consisting of him, Boogie, Danielle, Dan, Shane, and Britney. They blindsided a huge threat Janelle. The next week, he wins HOH again! He nominates two floaters and one of them gets evicted, so he gets respect for that. Then, Shane won HOH and nominated him. He won point of view like a boss, but his closest ally was evicted. Then, the Fast Forward happened and he won point of view, throwing Ian's plans in the trash. But it caused his showmance to be evicted. This left ...more

One of the best competitors in Big Brother History. Target since day 1. Only got to cast a vote twice through 64 days in the house because he was either HoH or on the Block. Helped get out on the best players of all time Janelle. With the help of his Chilltown partner Mike Boogie.

I agree that Frank was trustworthy and an animal during comps, Dan went too far with some of his deception. YOU should be able to LIE without swearing on the bible, on your wedding ring, or on your children. That becomes tasteless, & classless.

Absolutely love him! The best competitor other than Janelle.

24 Alison Irwin - Runner Up - Season 4

Although many have since tried and failed, Alison Irwin is the only houseguest in history to use her looks and flirting to take the Big Brother house by storm. Whether she was swapping spit with Nathan or climbing into bed and making out with her ex Justin, Alison had most of the guys under her spell at one point or another in the game and ran that house. Not to mention, she was a good competitor and won a number of competitions to boot. She only lost because the jury was bitter and didn't approve of her or the way she played the game, and she stands next to Danielle Reyes as the most robbed houseguest of all time.

Loved her! She used everyone for her dirty work, and if the jury had not been so bitter, she would have been the winner of Big Brother 4. I was appalled when she was first out of All-Stars

I hate how people base her off of all stars she is one of the best players ever she deserved to win season way more than anyone else I'd rank her in top 5 based off her flirting strategy, and great knowledge of how to play the game..

I would not call Alison robbed because Jun played an amazing game too! If Alison sat with Robert or Erika in the finale and lost, then she WOULD be the second most robbed. But Jun deserved to win as much as Alison.

25 Steve Moses - Season 17

While Steve did play a good game, he definitely is not one of the best players. Sure, his strategy of laying low and winning when necessary was great, but people give him to much credit. Separating Austwins in F6 was not that big of a move. He was aligned with John and Vanessa the most so going after them was not going to happen. He is top 10 winners, but not top 10 players.

Steve simply played an amazing game. He won comps when his life was on the line, and he did an excellent job at covering his bases with the powers in the house. Truly an excellent winner, I applaud Steve for playing a fantastic game.

Did absolutely nothing for the first 3/4 of the game and snuck out a couple wins in the last 2 weeks to keep himself in the running. Had no sort of power in any alliance and honestly wouldn't have won over most people in the house. The smartest move he made was getting rid of BB legend Vanessa before the final 2 so he was sitting next to Liz who did even less than steve.

He was at the bottom of the Scamper Squad and admitted to that and he went along with it. Everything he said in the pregame he did to a tee and did it well, Excellent player good winner and better than Ian
