Big Brother 21 concluded with Jackson Michie defeating Holly Allen in a 6-3 vote. With the season now complete, we decided to take a look back at our predictions and find the 3 most surprising players.

Every year, there are players Big Brother fans don’t have high expectations for. There are some that end up exceeding those expectations. However, that isn’t the only reason players could be could surprising. It could end up being that they were nasty surprise and exhibited poor behavior during the game. Earlier today, we took a look at the most disappointing players of the season. Now, we take a look at the 3 most surprising players of Big Brother 21.

No. 3: Holly Allen

I had no hope for Holly Allen in the game when I saw her pre-game press. When she did her interview with Jeff Schroeder, she had no idea she was even in the diary room. That led me to believe she would have absolutely no idea what she was doing in the game.

However, Holly had arguably the best social game in the entire house. She was in the majority throughout most of the game. Not only this but she wasn’t even nominated for eviction until Day 83.  Even then, she was only nominated because Jackson Michie had no other choice but to nominate her. If Michie would’ve had another option, he definitely wouldn’t have nominated Holly.

Holly also won 2 HOHs and used them to evict Sam Smith and Nick Maccarone. She was also part of a showmance with Michie that made it all the way to the final 2 together. When Holly and Michie were final 2 I honestly thought Holly might have a chance to win because Michie had pissed quite a few people off. Ultimately, Holly only received 3 votes and finished in 2nd place. Nonetheless, that is still an impressive performance by someone who knew nothing about the game going in.

No. 2: Jackson Michie

Michie was a surprise both in terms of his poor behavior in the house and his gameplay. Behavior wise, what Michie did in this house is nothing I would condone. There was the week 3 bullying incident, the have not cheating scandal, and accusations of discriminating against race and age among other incidents.

Gameplay wise, he very much exceeding my expectations. I had him leaving early for a combination of being a physical threat and being the guy that overplayed his hand and made a big target of himself. However, he did not do that.

He won the Camp Director power on the first day and used it to get himself into the majority alliance. This allowed him to lay as low as one can when you’re a big physical threat. Then when that big majority alliance, he was part of the new majority and was one of the people that led the charge to blindside Cliff Hogg III, Nick Maccarone, and Isabella “Bella” Wang.

On Day 44, he nearly destroyed his game by letting it slip that Holly and Kathryn “Kat” Dunn knew each other. However, Jack Matthews was evicted over him in week 6. Then, he went on a tear in challenges. He won the America’s Field Trip Competition in week 7 to keep himself safe. Then, he proceeded to win 4 straight HOH’s to close out the season bringing him to the final 2. He also won the crucial final 4 POV that kept both him and Holly safe.

In total, he won 4 HOH’s, 4 POV’s, the America’s Field Trip, and Luxury Competition. This set a new single season record for competition wins. He ultimately won the season in a 6-3 jury vote over Holly.

No. 1: Kathryn “Kat” Dunn

Like Holly, I really didn’t have much hope for Kat. Instead, Kat turned out to be one of the most entertaining players of Big Brother 21. She had a quirky, lovable personality, and it turned out she was a consipiring b—-.

Kat won the Power of Veto in week 3 and used it to save her ally Jessica Milagros. Later on, she was able to help her ally Jessica get Jack Matthews evicted.

She also had a secret final 2 with Holly that nobody ever figured out. Even though the move nearly got her evicted, she was smart enough to realize she needed to hide her relationship with Holly. To hide their relationship, she volunteered to be nominated by Holly. She was ultimately evicted in week 8 after Cliff made a deal to save himself.

If there’s anyone player I’d like to see again in a future season, it’s Kat. Her personality and gameplay were a bright light in an otherwise miserable season.
