Big Brother: the 6 greatest moves of the 2010s: No. 3


With the decade nearly over, we decided to take a look back at every season of Big Brother we had this decade. In our look back, we decided to rank our 6 most legendary moves of the decade.

With the 2010s nearly over, we decided to reflect on every season of Big Brother that took place this decade. We knew that several incredibly dumb moves had been made over the years. With this in mind, we decided to rank the 6 most legendary moves of the decade. This will include both the Celebrity and Over the Top versions of Big Brother. Number 3 is Ian Terry masterminding Mike “Boogie” Malin’s eviction.

No. 3: Ian Terry masterminds Mike “Boogie” Malin’s eviction (Big Brother 14)

Get used to seeing Big Brother 14 on this list. There were a lot of very strong moves from this season. That’s why it is one of the best seasons of all time.

The main twist of Big Brother 14 was that 4 Big Brother legends returned to the game as mentors. The 4 mentors were Mike, Dan Gheesling, Britney Haynes, and Janelle Pierzina. After week 3, the coaches became full fledged players in the game.

In week 1, when coaches were picking players to mentor, Boogie picked Ian. In the coaches competition that week, Boogie won and chose to save Ian as Ian had become a target. In week 4, Ian founded the Quack Pack alliance with Dan, Danielle Murphree, Britney Haynes, and Shane Meaney.

In week 6, Shane won HOH. Thinking Ian was still with him, Boogie told Ian that Shane and Britney would be his targets in the future. Naturally, Ian went to warn Shane and Britney and told them that Frank Eudy (Boogie’s number 1 ally) and Boogie could no longer be trusted. With this new information, Shane nominated Boogie and Frank for eviction. After the nomination ceremony, Frank and Boogie lashed out at Dan, falsely believing he was the mastermind of the plan to nominate them both.

Frank won the POV that week to save himself and seal Boogie’s fate. Jenn Arroyo was named the replacement nominee. At the live eviction, Boogie was evicted 5-2. What makes this move so brilliant is how Ian handled it.

On the way out the door, Ian informed Boogie that he would see something he didn’t like. In his good-bye message to Boogie, Ian revealed that it was he who had masterminded the plan to evict Boogie, praised Boogie for being his mentor. In response, Boogie could only tip his cap to Ian and give credit where it was due.

This move checks in at No. 3 for the execution and handling of the fall out. Not only did Ian blindside a Big Brother legend but he managed to have Frank convinced that it was Dan who did it instead of him. This left Frank with hard feelings towards Dan which lasted for most of the game.

The cherry on top of the cake is how Ian handled it. Boogie was clearly not happy with Ian when the vote count was revealed but he came away impressed after seeing Ian’s good-bye message. If Boogie had been on the jury, that would’ve been an amazing piece of jury management on Ian’s part.
