Top Ten Best Big Brother Canada Players

Vote for the player who played the best game and had the best strategy on Big Brother Canada.

The Top Ten

1 Neda Kalantar

She was a mixture of everything you needed in he house, she was strategic and made well calculated moves, she was willing to endure anything to win, and also lets just add she is the was the only girl who won 2 head of households when she needed them most, all in all she is just the best big brother Canada player, she is just like will kirby except she came third place, a player to remember

This girl dominated big brother Canada 2 and she controlled the house. People think she was a floater for the first couple weeks, but she just didn't win competitions so she wouldn't be perceived as a threat. she WILL come back for all-stars because she is so deserving. ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS OF ANY SEASON OF BIG BROTHER I've WATCHED.

Neda will always be a masterful player but her ranking should go down because of her hideous gameplay in season 5. And it is pretty funny that season 5 may be the last season. New fans will know her as the catty, over bearing player in season 5 instead of the mastermind she was in season 2.

2 Emmett Blois

Emmett is the best Big Brother Canada player and one of the best in any BB (US included). He ran the house from the beginning cutting ties with who he needed to, never letting his emotions get in the way and if it wasn't for an unlucky set of Final 3 comps he would have won. He should also get bonus points for being a giant physical threat which made him a big target from Day 1.

He even received the endorsement of Dan (someone who knows a thing or two about BB) after he stayed in the Big Brother house and observed it..."Rarely do you see a player with such control over the house as Emmett has" was what he said after leaving.

Emmett was definitively my favorite houseguest in S1. He was great in competitions having won 2 HOHs and 3 POVs. He also played an amazing social game and was able to get on everyone's good side. It's amazing that he was able to stay off the block the whole game after being up week 1. Despite all the controversy concerning the winner of S1, Emmett absolutely dominated the season. - Articuno

Dumbass is dating hot nicole doesn't deserve her

Going into BBCAN 5, I said that Neda was the best BBCAN player ever but now that moniker has changed to Emmett Blois. Mostly because he played the game like a modern version of Jason Guy which in my opinion is the greatest non-winner in the US Big Brother, so the similarities insure my opinion that Emmett is the greatest player in Big Brother Canada and he deserved to be the original winner of the season.

3 Cassandra Shahinfar

Cassandra has shown again and again that she is capable of manipulating others to get herself to stay. The rest of the house will take Cassandra to the end thinking they could beat her, but hopefully we don't have a bitter jury and Cass can pull off the win she deserves.

She flipped the vote to save herself the week before final 4 which is very impressive considering the fact that Kelsey and the brothers were determined to evict her at the beginning of the week. She talked her way out of so many sticky situations and had positioned herself in a way where everyone believed they were her best friend. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) player of bbcan4

Cassandra has been playing under the radar for the first part of the game, but then she has shown that she can do what it takes to completely change everyone's mind in the house when she flipped them to vote Joel out.

She should have won

4 Jillian MacLaughlin

Jillian Is a pretty good and likeable winner who is a great competitor who was never on the block even though she was a target for the longest time, that sounds like a deserving winner to me. Even though I still think Emmett deserved it more than her

She and Emmett were in power the whole game and she was a deserving winner. Out of the final 3 you could argue that she deserved the win the least but all 3 did play a great game! She was also great in comps - Articuno

She's a terrible player. She almost lost to Gary (Who was evicted.)

She's number 3... That's way to up

5 Ika Wong

Managed to get the least threatening player evicted over herself despite being the biggest threat in the house, and everybody knowing it. Could only get evicted at final 4 when evicting her was practically the only option.

Ika was literally queen bee. Nobody could take her out. Kevin tried putting her and her showmance up twice! And neither of the times they left. It took him 3 tries to finally get her out! And in season 2 she started out relatively strong, but it all went downhill for her. She deserves to be higher on this list!

One of the most entertaining houseguests. She had the best strategy in season 5 and showed everyone that she could be more than entertainment. Great at manipulating and strategizing.

Played an amazing social game! Was unable to win comps but that meant nothing because she was able to control almost every HoH! All around great player!

6 Jon Pardy

Jon played an amazing game, he played it user the radar for the majority of the first half of the game and was not perceived as a threat until he came out of nowhere and began to win comps and control the big brother house.

Underrated. Despite having won and having convinced the most deceptive and paranoid player in the house that he was an emotional player who would take her to the end, he is given no credit for the win. He did something that only the greats have done, played the whole game with a huge target on his back but was so charming that he managed to keep himself out of danger, ultimately winning the game. Bbcan wanted to say that they produced the first dominant female winner so they gave neda the mastermind edit which she only kinda deserved. Jon is the best bbcan player so far and doesn't even recognize it himself.

Even though Jon had the body to be seen as a threat he was never even suggested as being a target to the first five then he joined the sloppy seconds and completely dominated the game

Best player, with great mind games

Played the best game of Season 3... Played a lot of people in the house, completely disguising himself as an unintelligent, terrible competitor, when the reality was the opposite...It's amazing that a ripped, smart guy can get so far not beasting out on comps...Probably played too well, as the jury didn't understand the game he played. Plus Season 3 probably had more gamers that the first couple so it was a harder path...

The man who can survive eviction after eviction and lay low in the house. He throws the competitions because he knows how to manipulate the house into going after a bigger target. Great player.

Best strategic big brother Canada player but only had two friends in the jury who were probably the two worst people to have as your advocate. Also he had limited time to explain his game to the jury.

8 Tim Dormer

Not a bad player but definitely not the best player of that season. Tim is a showman, he is there for the show and that's why a lot of people like him, but there's a different between giving a good show and playing a good game. He makes "big moves" just for the sake of making "big moves" with no logic reasoning behind, because making big moves is "cool", his best "move" was to pretend he didn't care about winning and aling with the best player of that season (Cassandra) that's about it.

I assume he will be pushed up to Final 5, and is in all reality the best Big Brother Canada player we have seen yet. Top class manipulator, Tim didn't even really need to lie to get the house to do what he wanted. His charisma and social game made everyone feel comfortable, and thus more willing to listen to his ideas. He is one of the best players to ever play the North American format, and I would put him right behind Derrick as the 5th best player in BB history.

He, with a doubt, played the best game in season 4.

Greatest social game of all time enough said. Just if he studied he would have won!

9 Sarah Hanlon

Never should have came close to winning. Terrible twists kept her in the game and knocked out strong players who deserved to be in the house over her. Seeing her ride the coat tails of her win last season by appearing on the after show as some big brother mastermind is sickening. Many other more deserving players on this list made it very far in the game with much bigger targets on their back without any assistance from any unfair twists.

Very overrated player with an even more overrated social game. Relied on 3 things: Brittnee, competitions and most of all twists. Accidentally voted out Willow and just flew under the radar throughout most of the game. No big moves. Really nothing all that special.

I get that the winners should be high open the list, but Sarah would not have made it as far as she did without the twist. I'm not saying she was a bad player, but I am saying that her ability to get out of sticky situations was only half her, the other half was luck, or in the case of her and Britnee being given safety was pretty much production rigging the week, they knew who Canada would vote for and used that to keep Sarah and Britnee around. I don't know if Sarah or Britnee would have left, but regardless that twist changed the game.

Sarah was so fun to watch and is my favorite contestant of either person and the first time my favorite won. Of course the next year made up with my least favorite winners of eother version. The brothers were hard to watch

10 Kevin Martin Kevin Martin Kevin Dallas Martin, Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

Great understanding of the game, but couldn't play it subtle.

Guys Kevin Won Season 5 Of Big Brother Canada

A great player that got screwed by the triple eviction, hopefully he makes all stars

Textbook big brother win, first half of the game didn't win anything until he had to, studied the dates and events non stop (I don't understand why not everyone does that...) Now what I didn't like about his game. Him and the "vets" played a horrible game, they secluded them selves agains the "newbies" made in very apparent they were targeting "newbies" and then cannibalized them selves after 2 weeks... Big brother is about 13 weeks long

The Contenders

11 Mitchell Moffit

He knew everything about the game and played it nearly flawlessly. By flying under the radar, no one thought a thing about him. Look at the HOH competition where Houseguests could choose who they want to try to eliminate from the competition. No one picked him to go up in that challenge until the very end, showing that they didn't suspect his amazing gameplay. Unfortunately, the fake double eviction provided Kelsey with the information that Mitch was a mastermind, wnd even though he did a great job trying to keep himself in the game, there wasn't much he could do.

Would've gone very far if it wasn't for the twist. Very strategic player, flawless game.

Whether it is with eye rolls and rants or strategic lies, Mitch always has everyone guessing while keeping him safe.

He not only had a plan every week, but he had back-up plan after back-up plan when necessary. An ideal Big Brother player for sure.

12 Zach Oleynik

Zach played a well calculated strategic game and had a brilliant social game. He also respects Big Brother!

Great player! One of the best this season if not the best all around player

Best player on season 3

13 Peter Brown

Peter is a very good observer of the game he understands the game very well and can analyze it to perfection, but when he played, he wasn't a good player at all, he did a lot of mistakes that himself would despise now. That being said, I didn't like him very much before having watched the sideshows, but now my opinion as chanded and I think that technically he is very good at this game. (I hate Sara in the sideshow she always disses peter after he gives his opinion, it's irritating).

Why is he so high up this list he sucked at the game and made some of the dumbest moves in Big Brother Canada history like not using the point of view on Topaz and voting out A. J instead of Andrew during the instant eviction.

Am I the only one who thinks Peter is overrated? He made a lot of dumb moves and just relied on Alec. He won comps yes, but only because Alec let him. - RoxasDan

LOOL He doesn't deserve to be in the top 10, he made TWO of the DUMBEST, moves that season...

1) During the instant eviction, him and Alec disobeyed Topaz, and evicted AJ over Andrew. They pretty much sealed their own fate...Andrew went on to win the next HoH and targeted their side of the house...

2) After Alec went home, Emmet won HoH, And nominated Topaz and Talla [The Pawn], Peter then won Veto and did NOT use it. Topaz was the only person that would not nominate him if she won HoH, after Topaz went Peter was sent packing straight after...

Overall, he is so overrated as a good play, enough said

He was in final 4, it was BS that he got screwed by Gary returning

He did not deserve to go. Talla did

16 Dre Gwenaelle

Very underrated and amazing social game

She was fantastic - musicalorange6

17 Alec Beall

Alec was defiantly a good player. Comp and mental threat.

18 Gary Levy

It would have been a travesty if he won over Jillian

Terrible player

Gary would've won Big Brother if Topaz hadn't made her mistake and voted for Jillian

Gary was awesome! When he lost because of that idiot girl who didn't know the right way, I literally screamed. I LOVE GLITTER GARY!

19 Bruno Ielo

The BEST social and Strategic player of the season. He made the right moves when needed, even though people wanted him out his social game saved him and he made the right moves when needed. Also made the best move ever by saving Zach at the tripple eviction. This guy needs to be ranked in the top 5 all time Canadian players minimum or this ranking system is flawed.

By far the best strategic player of BBCAN3 if not all 3 seasons. If you watched live feeds you would know how good his social game was, the show didn't show his full game which is a shame

Very good read of the game and his fellow players

Would have won if it wasn't for that ridiculous twist. Great game player!

20 Naeha Sareen

All time best girl competitor, she could've killed the game if the instant eviction wasn't there.

SHE WOULD HAVE WENT SO FAR! She flipped the house in one night and was screwed over by an Instant Eviction, She had sk much potential

An example of someone who tried to make moves at the wrong time. I'd love to see Slayha come back for All-Stars, I think she'll realize what she did wrong this season and will fix her mistakes.

Shoulda coulda woulda yeah yeah yeah
