** [[AlphaBitch Charley Uchea]] from UK Series 8 (2007), who the producers tried everything in their power to keep in as long as they could:
*** The first week she got nominated, they used the fact that she had an argument with Billi to delete both of their nominations out of the pool, which took Charley and her BetaBitch Nikki off the public vote, but not Billi. To repeat, Charley was rewarded for breaking the rule about nominations. Billi ended up being evicted that week, presumably because people were annoyed that his rule break meant they couldn't get Charley out.
*** The next time she was on the block, Big Brother decided it would be a "fake eviction" where she was sent outside to a fake audience, and shown her highlights, but then sent back into the house. They announced this play on the same day she got nominated, so it can't have been coincidence. This let her stay in another 2 weeks.
*** It came out after the show that she had been warned repeatedly off screen for NWordPrivileges, including directing it at fellow black housemate Brian, though when Emily got thrown out for the same thing on Day 7 there were nearly a thousand complaints about the DoubleStandard that time alone.

Added DiffLines:

** Rachel Rice from UK Series 9, who was so non-committal in any arguments the whole series that even Big Brother started cracking jokes about her "sitting on the fence", and she only got nominated once due to this. Then late on, Big Brother showed some housemates and the public her pre-entry video package where she had a vastly different personality, revealing that she'd been playing a massive game. Everyone was so impressed by the gameplay that she won the whole competition!

** Neda ''twice'' in Canada. First in season two when Jon evicts ''her'' in third place, and then in Season 5 when Ika manages to turn the house against her at the ''very'' last minute.



** Karen in Canada Season 5. Apparently people do not think much about her in the house - yet she is pretty well liked by the fanbase.



** The seasons from the early 2000s contain a lot more casual homophobia from other house guests. Mikey Dalton for example in the UK's 7th Season casually said in his introduction that he hated gays.
* VindicatedByHistory: A lot:
** Season 15 was seen as a "Terrible" season. While the cast full of mostly unlikable people has not been vindicated, the [[BoringButPractical anticlimactic season 16]] resulted in a lot more people appreciating some of the amazing plays during the season.

* ValuesDissonance: Basically, viewers familiar with the [=US=] and Canada format would tends to emphasize gameplay over entertainment. While viewers familiar with the [=UK=] format will try to make everything more entertaining for them.

** Big Brother 18. Poor Bridgette. She's easily one of the most genuinely sweet girls especially with Natalie and Nicole arguably taking a level in jerkass in the house this season, and yet ''everyone'' with the exception of James and Frank (though Frank could have been thought to be using her) hates her for no real reason. She's ostracized and voted out by a near unanimous vote, but thankfully seems to be getting some friends in the jury house, who originally couldn't stand her, like Da'Vonne and Zakiyah.

*** Michelle as well from the same season - she is very prone to crying already, couldn't handle a lot of things. She's evicted for a personal vote (being the odd-one out when everyone else had a nigh-unbreakable bond with someone else), and when she called Nicole and Corey out on it, Corey just shouted her to tears about how wrong she was.
** Justin from ''Over the Top''. He basically hid behind bigger targets and got to the final four. He spiraled into depression during his last week of the game and kept away from the other three to not ruin the mood... and Jason&Kryssie pretty much bashed the ''hell'' out of him. Only Morgan came around to make sure he was alright. His last week in the house was pretty much Jason and Kryssie non-stop hating him. [[LaserGuidedKarma Which more or less cost them the game.]]

* FanonDiscontinuity Some certain fans of the American version of Big Brother tend to ignore the first season due it being a completely different game than the games in the other seasons. Because of that, you usually don't find that season in some season/houseguest/winner rankings.

*** A heartbreaking example in [=BB18=] is James Huling. He starts the game off as the most likeable returning player and overall nicest houseguest, until he makes a few questionable game decisions causing everyone to turn on poor James. Even Natalie his supposed showmance, went against him. What's more, he's had his heart broken by Natalie as it turns out she never really loved him at all, and the only reason she agreed to the showmance was so she could use him. You've got to wonder if he'll ever find a nice woman for himself especially since his original wife left him. Poor guy.

*** Victoria Rafaeli. Targeted and seen as week from day one, almost everyone she allied with belittled her and insulted her game. Any accomplishments she achieves are swept under the rug or recognized as other people doing the work for her. To top it all off, the editors go out of their way to make her seem as dumb as possible and show off her failures. And despite all this, she at least tries to keep positive about it all. Plus, with her secret shame of her hair loss coming to light, we learn that she has deep insecurities about her looks.

** Season 18's winner Nicole. Nicole, a veteran from Season 16, not only TookALevelInJerkass but she [[OneOfTheGuys intentionally targeted the other females in the house.]] So you have people torn on whether they liked her ruthless gameplay or not.
