Now that Big Brother until next year, it’s time to take a look back at the season that was. Earlier, we took a look at moves the cast made. Now, we are going to attempt to rank the houseguests’ social games.

The social game is arguably the most vital component of the Big Brother game. At the end of the day, you have to put people on the jury in a manner that is going to make them want to vote for you to win $500,000 at the end. That is the hardest part of the game.

This series of articles will discuss the social games of those who made it into the Big Brother 21 house and rank them. When you are done reading, let us know how we did and leave a comment below! Checking in at number 5 is Nick Maccarone.

No. 5: Nick Maccarone

Nick checks in at No. 5 on our social games countdown. Almost everyone in the house liked Nick. The fact that he was able to reintegrate himself into the house after he and Isabella “Bella” Wang became such huge targets speaks volumes to his social abilities. He played both sides virtually seamlessly and if it wasn’t for the Taco Tuesday fight, could’ve given Jackson Michie a run for his money at the end.

Nick started off Big Brother 21 in a strong position. He had a showmance with Bella and together they were 2 out of 8 members of the Gr8ful alliance. However, after a week 3 bullying incident where the Gr8ful alliance bullied Nicole Anthony, Bella and Nick became scape goats for the other 6 members. Nick and Bella were blindsided when those 6 broke off from the alliance and evicted Cliff Hogg III instead of Nicole.

Nick was the target in week 4, but he won the Power of Veto to save himself. After week 4, Nick was able to work his way back in with the house, playing both sides seamlessly. In week 8, he made the ill-fated decision to start the Taco Tuesday fight with Christie Murphy. This put a huge target on his back that he was never able to recover from.

In week 9, Nick was awarded the title of America’s Prankster by the fans. Nick took this opportunity to nominate Christie for eviction, feeling he had the best chance of staying against her. Holly Allen meanwhile, nominated Nick for eviction. After losing the Power of Veto, Nick learned he had been played by Tommy as Tommy wouldn’t vote to keep him. As a result, Nick was evicted in a 5-0 vote.
