Top Ten Favorite Big Brother (U.S.) Houseguests

The Top Ten

1 Britney Haynes - BB12 Britney Haynes - BB12

Hilarious in the diary room and won the americas favorite houseguest prize

The first couple of episodes she wasn't my favorite but as you see more of her she really wins you over.. And she also defends the weaker people! Can't stand bullys.

A beast. Great at competitions and an amazing social game. She surpasses both Janelle and Boogie for her all around great stats as a player, honestly.

Funniest queen to ever be on the show.

2 Janelle Pierzina - BB6 & BB All-Stars Janelle Pierzina - BB6 & BB All-Stars 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.

Janelle is the best player to have never won Big Brother. Also, the best female player in BB history. She managed to make the final three of season six with an alliance that cannibalized itself as soon as it was created. She lost her two strongest allies in the first two weeks, and she still managed to get to the final three. She won when she needed to and even when she didn't really need to. She used her good looks and fake stupidity to win Dr. Will, the second greatest player of all time, over, and then she evicted him before the final three. If Ivette had made a better decision, Janelle would have been the winner of Big Brother 6. If Erika hadn't slept her way to the runner-up prize, Janelle would have been a two-time winner. Now that I think about it, Janelle is a better player than Dr. Will, so I will go ahead and say that she is the second greatest player of all time, only behind Dan Gheesling. Best player of the PB&J era. Best Female Player. Give her any award you want. She ...more

Overrated as a player. A competition beast but had 0 social game and little to no strategic play. This became even more evident in BB 14 when her competition skills diminished and she had nothing left to fall back on. Entertaining to watch because of her dominant character, but her problematic and racist comments towards Ivette in BB 6 and lackluster prevent me from ever being a true fan. - ohok

Won a prize to go see two and a half men won the jury prize got the most votes for a female in the all star candidate ballot and shes hot

How is brittany above Janelle!?

3 Dan Gheesling - BB10 Dan Gheesling - BB10 Dan Gheesling is an American reality television personality who appeared on the Big Brother 10, which he won.

Dan had his way with people. He could have them do anything he wanted them to do. Love the funeral he had for himself. So epic.. My all time favorite will always be Dan the Man..

He could manipulate anyone he wanted and he pitted everyone against eachother in both seasons he played the first season he dominated the second season he took someone everyone love to the final two and lost but he easily manipulated every hg

He's the best player ever

Dan is the greatest player of all time. In bb14 he did the unthinkable over and over again and used people who wanted him out as allies. He is my favorite of all time and whoever put Brittany and Janelle over him for fam favoritez is insane

4 Jeff Schroeder - BB11 & BB13

This guy was almost likeable, but when you could see how obvious it was that the network favored him, he began to sour. He also made homophobic comments claiming that gay people were "perverted". One could get over all of this if CBS didn't force him down the viewers' throats season after season.

He was stupid in the game because each season he played, he betrayed people he and Jordan could trust (season 11: Russell/Michele season 12: Daniele Donato) but it hard not to like him outside the game I guess he's pretty good looking

He yells at everyone and completely dominates Jordan. Any interaction between the two leaves a foul taste in my mouth. The homophobic and misogynistic comments don't help him, either. - ohok

Love jeff and Jordan

5 Jordan Lloyd - BB11 & BB13 Jordan Lloyd - BB11 & BB13

The nicest houseguest ever in Big Brother history. Glad she won, but she wasn't really a good player, She won because she was a good person, and I am very happy with that, for this season.

Jordan is the most genuine person I've ever seen on BB and rarely lost her cool. But when she did, she didn't use slurs or hateful language. I just love her best out of everyone who has been on there.

She won by being the nicest person to ever play the game, she wasn't really a good player though

Jordan is terrible as a player. - ohok

6 Zach Rance - BB16 Zach Rance - BB16

This guy wears his heart on his sleeve. Like most BB fans I started hating him and ended up loving him.

He's so cute and funny. By far my favorite ever on BB. So sad he got evicted :(

Entertaining to watch but didn't have the best gameplay. - ohok

He's absolutely amazing.I started out loving Frankie but hating Zach but ended up hating Frankie and loving Zach!

7 Danielle Donato - BB8 & BB13

I love Daniele so much, she is such an underrated player. She had great strategy and won a ton of competitions. Not to mention how great her personality was! She was so funny and she was definitely evicted too soon.

She's so much better compared to Rachel in season 13 not only did she win comps she had strategy and kept a level head. Whereas Rachel was so vile and thought she was so good at comps when she couldn't even beat Daniele in any. Daniele should've won BB13. plus I loved her all girl alliance with Porsche and kalia

Wasn't her biggest fan in BB8 but loved her in BB13

She's beyond underrated and she should've won BB 8. - ohok

8 Donny Thompson - BB16 Donny Thompson - BB16

Donny is the sweetest, kindest, most gentle soul I've ever seen. I love that he don't say bad words or lay around with the gals. He is a very decent person and I hope he wins. Probably won't because he is too good to everyone and don't want to hurt anyone. I'm proud to say he is my cousin. You Go Donny!

Absolutely love this man, he is the kindest man on the show, too bad he didn't win and he lost his job because he didn't show up, (which is Bull! He didn't curse, he wasn't racist, he didn't break the rules, he didn't offend anyone, infact he made people feel good about themselves, he didn't hurt anyone, he disrespect anyone, he didn't bully anyone, he didn't stalk anyone, he didn't do anything wrong, and yet he lost his job, we use to to work at a SCHOOL! And big brother takes place in the summer, don't they realize that he was couldn't attend his job because he was on a reality show) but at least he won AFP.

Nicknamed the Heart of gold this guy was the only one who didn't vote for majority (along with Hayden). This guy is the nicest man in bb16 the season of horrible racists/homophobic/jerks (Frankie Grande is a prime example) He was kinda fake at the start saying hashtag a lot although not knowing what it meant. He has a spot in my heart after he plotted to get Derrick out (It failed) but he had the guts!

A surprisingly great player, strategically and competitively, and one of the most lovable human beings to ever play Big Brother. - ohok

9 Will Kirby - BB2 & BB All-Stars Will Kirby - BB2 & BB All-Stars

The Doctor that can do it all. Charming, Intelligent, Articulate, Persuasive and Manipulative. The complete Big Brother package. - xjlatino

The best player of all time and the smoothest

No one is better. Some others come close. The ones who come close like dan and dick might even admit that there has never been anyone better.

One of the best players of all time, if not, the best. - ohok

10 Rachel Reilly BB12 & BB13 Rachel Reilly BB12 & BB13 Rachel Eileen Reilly Villegas is an American television personality, a talk show host, an actress, and a reality show participant.

She was a competition beast and managed to make it to the end with a target on her back the entire game!

As one of the best players in Big Brother history, Rachel rocks!

I actually liked Rachel - she was very good in comps and was never boring!

They wanted her out the whole season, but they couldn't get her.

The Contenders

11 Dick Donato - BB8 & BB13 Dick Donato - BB8 & BB13 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.

The dude was targeted almost each week and yet came back to win it each time! He also had the guts to finally say why he left BB13 look it up if you want. He is the definition of BadAss!

Should have never won. Not a fan of his game play at all. The America's Player twist got him to final 2 and secured his victory. Any other season, he wouldn't have had a chance. - ohok

A lot of WOMEN hated him but all the guys loved him because he wasnt an ass kisser he was honest and terrorized the most hated players (jen and amber).

Best player ever! My secret crush 💖

13 Danielle Reyes - BB3 Danielle Reyes - BB3 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.

The Greatest Player That Never Won. She's the reason there is a jury house due to her (controversial) loss to Lisa Donahue because to her diary room entries.

Danielle was a great strategist and was pretty good at comps too. Almost likable.

14 John McGuire - BB 17

He was funny and so much smarter and a better player than given credit for. I wanted him to get Vanessa out. He grew on me as the game went on.

This guy is so funny

Hilarious without being funny!

Nice kid deserved 2 win

15 Alison Irwin - BB 4 and BB 7
16 Jason Guy - BB3
17 Nicole Franzel - BB16 Nicole Franzel - BB16

Nicole showed that girls can still dominate in this game. She was completely blindsided yet still managed to get back in the game. She was shy in the beginning so she didn't get to be in the big alliance but if it was formed later on, she would be on it and could of won the whole game. Christine held her back and Nicole would of been on Team America instead of that Frankie guy.

She was a firecracker. She never could make a big move, but she wanted too and is she would have stayed one week longer, she would have won the whole game! Think about the competitions and how much of a beast she would be if she stayed one more week! SHE WOULD HAVE COMPLETELY DOMINATED!

Now here is a controversial topic... I... Believe that... she deserved to win big brother. But if you are on team Paul, keep up to date with BB 19 and see what might happen.

Love Nicole. She is the most fun to watch.

18 Elissa Slater - BB15 Elissa Slater - BB15

Liked her and she was a very good player. Wouldn't mind if she returned to play again. It would need to be a season in which there weren't too many nasty players returning so she'd do well.

Go Elissa! Shes my favorite houseguest out of every player I've seen on BB.

She was my favorite in season 15 and amanda is just a little...

I was just addicted while watching Big Brother 15 because of Elissa! I know a lot of people that season didn't get along with her (for some reason, idek) but I really liked watching her play, and I was so upset when I found out Andy is a nastee person :P
