Big Brother’s 10 Most Annoying Showmances
8. Mike “Boogie” Malin and Krista Stegall (Big Brother 2)
In the season that started it all, “Chilltown” alliance members and bros, Dr. Will and Mike “Boogie,” developed romantic relationships with fellow house guests that set the precedent for all showmances to come. But while Dr. Will’s relationship with ice queen Shannon seemed genuine and lasted for a while after the show, Mike’s love affair with Krista came across as a cheap imitation and felt more forced than real. And then, as if he couldn’t just let Dr. Will soak in the glory of winning the season, Chilltown’s second banana went and — somebody pass the bucket — proposed to Krista on the live finale show, and yes, there was a tear in his eye. She accepted, but obviously the pair never got married. Some people just love the limelight.
7. April Dowling and Bryan Ollie (Big Brother 10)
This couple had a lot of night-vision-camera, under-the-sheets action, especially considering Ollie (as he liked to be called), had been a virgin until shortly before the season started. Besides constantly getting-it-on their showmance was sort of “meh,” and was made worse by the fact that they were both part of the annoying alliance on the show. And of course, they broke up pretty much as soon as the season ended.
