In light of Celebrity Big Brother being left off CBS’ schedule, we thought we would take a trip down memory lane. We are going to be ranking all Celebrity Big Brother houseguests from 23 to 1. Today we will take a look at No. 11: Kandi Burruss.

When CBS released their midseason schedule, there was a notable absence from it: Celebrity Big Brother. This has led to speculation that the series has been cancelled. It really is a shame because it provided fans some entertainment in the black hole known as the Big Brother offseason. With this in mind, we decided to rank the houseguests from 23 to 1. Checking in at No. 11 on our list is Kandi Burruss from Season 2.

No. 11: Kandi Burruss

There just wasn’t much to write home about with Kandi’s game on Celebrity Big Brother 2. She had a rivalry early on with Tamar Braxton, which throughout the course of the game they reconciled. She was also nominated 4 times during the season, a Celebrity Big Brother record.

In the first cycle, HOH Ryan Lochte nominated Anthony Scaramucci and Tom Green for eviction alongside Jonathan Bennett, who was already a 3rd nominee. However, Anthony left on Day 6 in a Fake Houseguest twist.

Needing a replacement nominee, Ryan named Kandi the replacement. Kato Kaelin won the POV put up for grabs after Anthony’s departure and used it to save Tom. Joey Lawrence was named the new replacement nominee. At the live eviction, Jonathan was evicted 6-1. The only vote to evict Kandi came from Dina Lohan.

Kandi would remain safe for the second cycle. During the second cycle, she helped take out Ryan in a 6-1 vote.

In the third cycle, HOH Tom nominated Kandi alongside Joey Lawrence for eviction. Tom also won the POV that week and chose not to use it. Joey was evicted in 6-0 vote.

Kandi remained safe through the fourth and fifth cycles. In the process, she helped take out Kato Kaelin and Natalie Eva Marie. During the cycle where Natalie was evicted, Kandi finally asserted herself and prevented Tom from evicting Ricky Williams.

In the sixth cycle, Lolo Jones won HOH and nominated Kandi alongside Tom for eviction. Tamar won the POV that cycle and chose not to use it. At the live eviction, Tom was evicted in a 3-0 vote.

In the seventh cycle, Ricky won HOH and nominated Dina and Kandi for eviction. Lolo won the POV that cycle and chose not to use it. At the live eviction, time finally ran out on Kandi. The vote came back 1-1 with Lolo evicting Kandi and Tamar evicting Dina. So, Ricky broke the tie as HOH and chose to evict Kandi. Kandi returned on finale night and voted for Tamar to win Celebrity Big Brother 2.
