The Most Despised Big Brother Houseguests

what would Big Brother be without a few villains? Each year, one or more players stir up so much trouble in the house that they are labeled the villain. Some villains are popular with fans (see Dr. Will Kirby), while others are not so lucky. Let’s take a look at some of the most despised Big Brother houseguests of all time.

Fans first met Paul Abrahamian in Big Brother 18. The California native angered some fans with his aggressive playing style and over-the-top personality. However, many fans defended him when the jury awarded Big Brother alumnus Nicole Franzel a $500,000 prize over Paul. Fans felt that a bitter jury robbed Paul of a well-deserved win.

The runner-up returned to the Big Brother house the following summer for another shot at the title. Paul made it into the last two again, but lost to Miami hair care salesman Josh Martinez after angering most of the judges with his breakneck style of play.

While many fans agreed that Paul deserved to win both seasons, he’s not exactly a fan favorite in the Big Brother fandom.

Season 2 house guest Shannon Drago was just plain unlikable. From body shaming players to cleaning toilets with a houseguest’s toothbrush, Shannon earned a reputation as a mean girl.

Season 21 winner Jackson Michie is one of the most disliked winners in Big Brother history. The CBS star received backlash from fans for his treatment of other houseguests. Fans felt he controlled other players, particularly his showmania Holly Allen. Fans also accused Jackson of targeting the minority players earlier in the season. He denied the allegation in the final.

Jack Mathews was Jackson’s better half on Big Brother 21. Much like Jackson, the fitness trainer has been criticized for his dealings with other house guests. Fans found his behavior around the house condescending and at times abusive.

Aaryn Gries is one of the most controversial houseguests of all time. On Big Brother 15, the Texas native got into trouble with fans after making a series of racist and homophobic comments that were caught on the live feeds.

Host Julie Chen-Moonves spoke about Aaryn’s behavior on the CBS show The lecture in 2013labeling the southern beauty’s behavior as “ignorant” and “immature.”

Fans clearly shared Julie’s sentiments because when Aaryn was evicted from the “Big Brother” house, she was greeted with boos from fans.

Adam Jasinski may have saved Jackson from being named the most unlikable winner of all time. The Season 9 winner was unpopular with both his fellow guests and fans, largely due to the insensitive comments he made on the show.

While some fans found Jessie Godderz entertaining, the bodybuilder is best remembered for his short-tempered temper and narcissistic disposition. His fellow guests found his personality off-putting and most fans agreed with him.

Jessie returned to the house in later seasons as part of the Pandora’s Box variant. If a player opened the box, something terrible would enter the house. In season 12, Jessie was the “awful thing”. I suspect even the producers see it as a punishment to have Jessie in the house.

Justin Sebik (Big Brother 2)


We can be pretty sure Justin Sebik isn’t a Big Brother fan’s favorite player. The New Jersey native made headlines with an incident on Big Brother 2 that resulted in his being banned from the game.

During a chat with houseguest Krista Stegall, Justin pulled a large kitchen knife from a drawer and held it to Krista’s throat. He asked the houseguest, “Seriously, would you be mad if I killed you?” The producers removed him from the game after the incident.

Prior to his chat with Krista, the houseguest had already irked fans with his temper and aggressive gameplay.
