8 Best Big Brother Feuds Ever
While this season of Big Brother has provided us with a few memorable characters (e.g. Audrey AKA “The Blanket”) and a modicum of comic relief (James’s pranks, Austin’s beard ponytail), it has been strangely devoid of tension between the players. Oh, sure, someone’s always going to be put up for eviction and feelings are invariably going to be hurt, but there hasn’t been a really nasty blow up of the likes we’ve gotten used to seeing in previous seasons. So in honor of BB17’s coming to an end, we’ve decided to put together a list of the Top 8 Down-and-Dirty Fights in Big Brother History. Remember these goodies?
8. Danielle vs. Lori (Season 3)
Waaaaay back in the first week of Season Three, houseguest, Lori, got upset that everyone else was making a big deal out of how old-man-in-the-house, Gerry, didn’t wash his hands after going to the bathroom. She actually kind of freaked out over it and demanded to know who started the rumors. When media buyer and mom, Danielle, admitted that she did (and also insisted it wasn’t a rumor), Lori and Danielle got into it, with Danielle going what she called “ghetto fabulous” on country girl, Lori. Lori was evicted that week — and the rules around proper hand sanitation have never been contested on Big Brother again.
7. Ian vs. Frank (Season 14)
In this season, in which four houseguests from past seasons returned to “coach” new houseguests, fans were treated to one of the most unique fights ever to take place on Big Brother. The fight was unique for so many reasons, not the least of which being that it took place between two of the “nicest” guys in the house, and the fact that one of them was dressed in a carrot costume the whole time. Ian, the nerdy engineering student, and Frank, the laid-back, unemployed beach bum, got into it when Frank accused HOH Ian of playing dirty by nominating both Frank and his coach, Mike “Boogie,” and then voting Mike “Boogie” off — right after Frank had convinced Mike to give a $3,000 prize to Ian in the veto competition. The fight was also memorable for the cuts to a tear-stained Britney and a laughing Dan Gheesling, who was lying on a bed in another room, killing himself while listening to the whole schmozzle through the wall.
