Big Brother wouldn’t be Big Brother without the sassy, loud, chaotic, mastermind players. The different personalities keep things interesting, make for lots of drama and fights, and create the binge-worthy reality TV that fans love to watch. Being able to watch the contestants in the house all summer long allows viewers to really get to know each player and their personality.
Between the floaters laying low, the social butterflies, and the fighters, there’s always a chaotic player who runs the house (or thinks that they do) and stirs the pot. Some even overplay the game, which isn’t always a bad thing. After all, contestants need to do whatever it takes to win the game, so if that means running around the house lying and making deals with everyone, that’s how some housemates will play it.
10 Paul Abrahamian
Finishing in second place not once, but twice, took Paul Abrahamian some hard work in the Big Brother house during seasons 18 and 19. He is the kind of player that makes sure he knows what’s going on at all times. He and the alliances he was a part of during his time on the show ran the house and Paul himself had a lot to do with evictions and plans to get people out. Not only did Paul have a great strategic and social game, but he has also won the most competitions in Big Brother history.
From constantly working the people in the house, planning and strategizing evictions, making deals with multiple people, and winning a substantial amount of competitions, his game was nothing short of chaotic. Although he got as far as the final two, his backstabbing was enough to turn the jury members off and give their final vote to someone else.
9 Tyler Crispen
Tyler Crispen was a powerhouse in the Big Brother game and won other players over with his charming personality. He was another player that always seemed to know what was going on in the house and had a big part in many of the evictions. Not only was he the mastermind behind his successful alliance, “level six,” but he had a final two deal with everyone in his alliance, which was risky for his game as he had to lie to the people he was “loyal” to.
Some of his behavior in the house cost him the game in season 20 when he became the runner-up and lost next to Kaycee Clark with a five to four vote. All of his deals with other contestants got him far, but not far enough.
8 Dick Donato
Dick Donato, also known as “evil Dick,” is one of the oldest houseguests and known for his crazy personality and fighting with many of his fellow houseguests. Things like blowing smoke in someone’s face and dumping a drink on someone’s head caused some chaos in the house during season eight. He wasn’t afraid to call people out or start a fight, which put a target on his back, but that didn’t stop him from getting far in the game.
Working with his daughter, with whom he had an estranged relationship before entering the house, ultimately got him to the end of the game, and the chaos that he caused throughout the season didn’t stop him from taking home the win.
7 Josh Martinez
Nothing says chaotic behavior quite like smashing pots and pans together to make a ruckus in the Big Brother house. When things got heated in the house in season 19, Josh Martinez took to the kitchens pots and pans to help him make some noise and stir the pot. Between his intense fights with other houseguests and calling the other players “meatballs,” he was a feisty player who was responsible for a lot of the entertainment in the house.
He worked hard to make sure everyone who was leaving the house knew that his ally, Paul, was lying, which ensured he got the most jury votes possible. All of his crazy moves in the game and being up next to Paul in the end, won him the game.
6 Dan Gheesling
You can’t be a Big Brother legend without being somewhat of a chaotic player and controlling the game. Dan Gheesling is known for making some crazy moves, such as convincing a houseguest to throw a competition so he could take the win and then betray them.
He is also known for hosting his own fake funeral when he was on the block, which ended up working to save him. Clearly, Dan Gheesling’s gameplay worked because he won season 10 with a unanimous vote and came back to be the runner-up on season 14.
5 Rachel Riley
Rachel Riley is known for her sassy personality and overbearing laugh. She caused a lot of chaos in the house during her time on seasons 12 and 13. She irritated other houseguests and particularly had issues with Ragen Fox in season 12. Ragen was also remembered for the many fights he had with Rachel and how much the two of them clashed.
After getting evicted in season 12, someone opened Pandora’s Box, which allowed her to come back into the house for 24 hours. She immediately stormed into the house to create more drama with the houseguests and specifically, to continue fighting with Ragen. Her feisty personality didn’t stop her from coming back to win season 13.
4 Russel Kairouz
Russell Kairouz was a fighter in the Big Brother house and fighting and chaos usually go hand in hand. He was known for being confrontational and aggressive with other houseguests during season 11 and he wasn’t afraid to say what he was thinking.
During one of his fights with houseguest Chima Simone, she told him that he was “terrorizing” everyone in the house. His taunting and fighting were always extremely loud, and although he played an extremely chaotic game, he still managed to make it to the final six.
3 Christie Murphy
Christie Murphy was known for having a dominant personality in the Big Brother house, as well as knowing Tommy Bracco before entering the house and then working with him throughout the game. Her spirituality and strong emotions, along with her strategic gameplay, were always entertaining for viewers to watch.
She also provided entertainment for viewers when she blew up Taco Tuesday by fighting with fellow houseguest, Nick Maccarone. Her game took a turn for the worse and kept her on her toes when she was up on the block five times in a row. After four successful attempts to get herself off the block, she was sent home on the fifth time and became the sixth member of the jury.
2 Mike Malin
Mike Malin is a three-time Big Brother player who won season seven. His strategy in the house to win the game was to lie and control the game, which he did very well. He was known as a Big Brother villain because he continuously made fake alliances and wasn’t loyal to his “allies” in the game.
While he had a part in sending a lot of the players from his fake alliances home, he also used his showmance, Erika Landen, only to further his game, and wasn’t with her for the right reasons inside of the house.
1 Derrick Levasseur
Derrick Levasseur was a chaotic Big Brother player in the best way possible. He was constantly working the house and always knew what was going on so he could make sure to protect himself from all angles. He was a part of six different alliances and an alliance created by America.
Ultimately, all of his relationships and the work he put in furthered his game and got him to the end. He played the game so well that he made it to the end of the game without ever being put up on the block by the other houseguests, which takes a lot of work and strategizing.
