What is a Big Brother house without a villain? While some came into the house to play an honest game, others came to wreak havoc and cause as much damage as possible. They lied, they bullied, and they manipulated houseguests and we loved to hate them and hated to love them.
Here is our list of the Top 10 most villainous contestants to ever enter the Big Brother House:
10. Eric Littman from Season 6
Known as Cappy, this Boston firefighter challenged most of the house with the exception of Ivette, who teamed up with him for some reason. He was only there for three weeks, but in that time, he had to be restrained from fighting Michael, whom he thought had insulted his family. Michael subsequently called Eric a “midget,” which further infuriated him.
9. Shannon Dragoo from Season 2
You might not expect a former calendar model to be so nasty, but scrubbing the toilet with Hardy’s toothbrush is pretty…nasty. Maybe that was just her current boat captain persona taking control. Although bitchy and arrogant, she did woo Dr. Will, who made her a part of his evil Chilltown alliance. Shannon too was evicted in week three.
8. Joe Barber from Season 8
Ah, what is better than a gay BFF who cannot keep his mouth shut? He even let us know that his housemate Dustin gave him gonorrhea. Um, some things should just be kept secret Joe. Thank goodness he was evicted in week two before he told us more stuff we didn’t want to know!
7. Maggie Ausburn from Season 6
A nurse as a villain? Yes, Maggie was the leader of The Friendship alliance and managed to get her followers to do all the dirty work while leaving little blood on her hands. So little that she ended up winning season 6, which ranks her higher than her secret partner Cappy.
6. Scott Long from Season 5 and Jase Wirey from Season 5 and 7 (All-Stars)
What is worse than one villain? Two villains teamed up together. As part of the Four Horsemen alliance, Jase became the first recipient of the famed “backdooring” move on Day 42. His bromance partner Scott didn’t last that long as he was evicted on Day 35. In the All-Stars season, Jase returned and was the center of a controversial outburst in the backyard when he feared being backdoored again. His fear was justified as he was nominated as a replacement and ended up leaving in week three.
5. Joshuah Welch from Season 9
Joshuah was an attention whore who hoped to be as evil as Evel Dick, but failed. He ranted, he raved, he bullied people, and he left the house on Day 56.
4. Alison Irwin from Season 4 and 7 (All-Stars)
A pageant queen who played a mean and cunning game that included flirting and backstabbing, Alison made her way to the top 2. However, she forgot that the jury voted for the winner and she was so hated, she only got one vote. When she appeared on All-Stars, the houseguests apparently still didn’t forgive her for her ways because she was the first one eliminated.
3. Will Kirby from Season 2 and 7 (All-Stars)
The Evil Dr. Will was both gorgeous and ruthless. As the leader of Chilltown, Dr. Will charmed and lied his way to the season 2 win. But, he lost his luster in the All-Stars season, which is okay because his partner-in-crime Mike Boogie won that season.
2. Mike “Boogie: Malin from Season 2 and 7 (All-Stars)
Speaking of Mike Boogie, he comes in at #2 for having a nice-guy persona that was eventually overshadowed by his true evil (did he learn that from Dr. Will?) when he called his showmance with Erika a “ho-mance.” And he still won after that comment!
1. “Evel” Dick Donato from Season 8
Tatooed? Check. Rock-n-roll bartender? Check. Odd charmisa? Check. Evil from beginning to end? Check. Evel Dick certainly earned his moniker as he spit and spewed his way through the house, especially with inflammatory remarks against the female houseguests, and then beat his own daughter for the win. And yet we and his fellow houseguests still loved him in the end.
With the help of these ten villains, the Big Brother house will never return to one of peace and calm. There will always be players who are going to lie and scheme to try to get to the end, but then that makes for interesting reality television.
