Big Brother fans, we only have seven more months to go until another diabolical season of our favorite reality show begins! Just like in scripted dramas, reality shows like this tend to have people that we absolutely adore and root for, and ones that we despise and want out immediately. The key difference with Big Brother is that the people that can be universally hated inside the house are ones that happen to be love outside of the game. So the question is, who was most hated inside and out of the house in each season? Let’s break down seasons one to eight here.
Inside the house: Will Mega
Outside the house: Chicken George
Season one of the US version of Big Brother was so boring due to the lack of charisma in their houseguests and many other facets that the show was almost canceled after its first season. The personalities just wasn’t colorful, and it lacked the pizzazz that other versions across the globe were able to obtain, so maybe the most hated was the actual show. Albeit, inside the first season house, Will Mega was definitely the most hated inside the house as his extreme views on pretty much everything got under everyone’s skin and he was the first houseguest to ever be voted out of the Big Brother house (it was considered to be “banished” then, not evicted). Crazy to say this, as he was so loved in BB All Stars, but he was hated outside of the house due to his family and hometown doing sneaky things to rally votes to keep him over Brittany, resulting in her banishment.
Inside the house: Nicole
Outside the house: Shannon
Season 2’s cast was a lot more blunt, volatile and honest about their opinions of each other and aspects of life that made it still the best season of BB to date. Nicole, who eventually came in 2nd place, was hated pretty much from the get due to her intense personality and colorful language that didn’t rub well with others. Also take into her betrayal of pretty much everyone in the house, it was a no brainer that Will won the game in the end. Outside of the house, there were numerous complaints about Chilltown member Shannon regarding her treatment of houseguest Autumn and ill mannered behavior of a good portion of the house.
Inside the house: Josh/Amy
Outside the house: Danielle
It pangs me to say that Danielle, my favorite BB player of all time outside of Dan, was so vilified but the truth is she actually was. She was hated because she knew how to play the game, and the American audience just couldn’t seem to comprehend that. Inside the house, Josh was hated for pretty much being annoying and making shady moves, and Amy was disliked by a couple of the girls for being way too talkative and immature.
Inside the house: Alison
Outside the house: Alison
Sorry, Ali, but you kind of made this easy on us. Ali’s problem in the game was that she talked shit about every single person she played with in a vicious way, got into a ton of fights when she was caught in lies, and also hooked up with half the men in the game. She had epic meltdowns and made Danielle from BB3’s diary room sessions look like something from Sesame Street. It completely rubbed everyone in the house the wrong way, resulting in her only getting one vote out of seven and a general disdain from the public as well during and after the game. Bonus points to include Erika for calling Jee a “fresh off the boat immigrant” and “Korean piece of shit”! Good one Erika, thank god social media wasn’t really around then otherwise your career would’ve been over.
Inside the house: Jase
Outside the house: Holly
Jase made it pretty easy for him to be hated in his season, which is why I was personally floored that he was voted in by America for BB All Stars. The majority of the houseguests inside the house hated him as he acted like a tool during his stay, went after Diane, Adria and others when he felt they weren’t being honest, and just generally being a very brazen player midst a group of very sullen guests. Holly was just… annoying. Very annoying. And her relationship with Jase just furthered that and she was evicted very early on in the game. Yay.
Inside the house: Janelle
Outside the house: THE FREAKING FRIENDSHIP ALLIANCE
Janelle was an insane badass in her season who should’ve won, we all know this. She was hated by a bunch of insecure sheep who had nothing better to do with their time than criticize her because they were so jealous that they weren’t her. Outside the house, the Friendship alliance is still the most hated in BB history for so many reasons. Take Eric, who legit was a cult leader who spewed his racist views on Kaysar, ego driven rage when he was in power, and so many other things that made him tacky as f in the house. Maggie just sat back and watched everyone in her alliance implode and burn, Jennifer was backstabbing and gross during her HOH week, Beau did nothing in the game, April was the most hypocritical houseguest the show has ever had with her views on Janelle’s plastic surgery and so much more, and Ivette was a whiny pain in the ass who never should’ve made it as far as she did. Thank god none of them came back for future seasons as I’m sure the network feared loss of viewers for dealing with the friendship again.
Big Brother 7:
Inside the house: Janelle
Outside the house: Erika
Janelle went through another season of being hated, but this time it was more out of jealously from a lot of the houseguests due to her competition wins. Many thought it was unfair when she was HOH the week that Erika happened to have hers dethroned due to a “malfunction” with the equipment they used during the competition, but she also rubbed a lot of houseguests the wrong way by getting rid of the wrong people and not focusing on getting rid of Chilltown. Erika wasn’t exactly liked in the game either, but outside of the game people didn’t really like her due to her being the one to break up Chilltown in the end and just how she portrayed herself regarding her pathetic relationship with Mike Boogie. It wasn’t a shock that just like Alison in Season 4 that she only received one vote in the end.
Big Brother 8:
Inside the house: Dick/Jen
Outside the house: Kail
It would be easy to say that Dick would be the most hated houseguest outside of the game, but seeing as America kept him in week after week when he was nominated I guess that wasn’t the case. America really didn’t like Kail, as every week that she was nominated she was voted out by America regardless of who she was up against. She was the consistent pawn in the game to get out bigger threats in Nick and Erik, but she was just that boring that America wanted to see the guys stay as opposed to her. Dick was of course hated by a lot of people for the words he used against them, especially against Jameka and Amber, and Jen was just hated as she had a very unique personality that a lot of them couldn’t figure out. I happened to love Jen and hope she comes back one day.
Stay tuned for Seasons 9 to 17 Thursday…
