Big Brother: All Stars Houseguest Tropes
open/close all folders
The Sovereign Four AKA "Sea Sick"
The Sovereign Four(Howie, James, Janelle, and Kaysar)
- Action Girl: Janelle
- Badass Crew: They won four consecutive HOH's for the first four weeks of the show, and if they had continued that streak for at least one round, they very well could have ran away with the game.
- Deal with the Devil: With ChillTown. By not nominating them right away, the Sovereigns keep the target on Will and Mike Boogie.
- Easily Forgiven: Despite being only a tentative member of the Sovereign Six the previous season(and for good reason), James is welcomed back into open arms by Howie, Janelle, and Kaysar during this season.

- Choleric: Kaysar
- Melancholic: James
- Phlegmatic: Janelle
- Knight Templar: Against floaters, they were actually the first persons who vilify it as a strategy.

The Winner of Season 2, chosen by the production.
- The Ace: Will won his season without winning a single competition. He is also a master strategist, manipulator and has one of the best social games in Big Brother history.
- Affably Evil
- Anti-Villain: Type I or Type III.
- Card-Carrying Villain
- The Casanova/The Charmer: The ladies almost always fall under Will's charm or spell. He's that irresistible.
- The Chessmaster
- Consummate Liar: Will is really good at lying and manipulating. It's scary how good at lying he is.
- Crazy-Prepared: If one of Will's plans fail, he always has a backup plan.
- The Dandy: Will cares a lot a bout his physical appearance.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy
- Deadpan Snarker: Will is very sarcastic and witty.
- Doctor Jerk
- The Dreaded: By the time Season 7 rolled around, Will's reputation as a master manipulator had grown to the point where none of the other Houseguests wanted to be align with him lest they fall into one of his traps. Astoundingly, he managed to use this reputation in order to not be seen as a threat (basically, his argument went like this: "You can get rid of me at any time since no one trusts me, plus I never win competitions anyway, so you may as well get rid of some floaters/physical threats.")
- Even the Guys Want Him
- Evil Genius
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Mike
- Hunk: Will is a cross between this, a Pretty Boy and Tall, Dark and Handsome.
- In Touch with His Feminine Side: Will is very conscious of his looks and physical appearance.
- Knight Templar: Will is extremely ruthless and cunning in the game.
- Kuudere: Will is classified as a Type 2.
- Manipulative Bastard: YMMV on whether if he's a Magnificent Bastard or not.
- Mr. Fanservice: Will is widely appealing to the Big Brother female fan base.
- Pretty Boy: Will is a cross between this, a Hunk and Tall, Dark and Handsome. How is that even possible?
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Will is the Blue Oni to Boogie's Red Oni.
- The Smart Guy
- Smug Snake
- The Stoic: Will is emotionless and ruthless in the game.
- The Strategist: Will is probably the most strategic player in Big Brother history.

The 5th Placer of season 1, George was chosen by the production.
- Bald of Awesome: After George shaves all his hair off in Week Three to win a very important Veto competition.
- Cool Old Guy
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander
- Genre Blind: He doesn't seem to understand(or care) how game strategy works, and he's almost never in any kind of real power. Justified in that he played in season one, which involved public voting instead of what we see on TV today.
- History Repeats: Finished in 5th.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: "Chicken" George
- Team Dad
The Runner-Up of Season 3.

- Unknown Rival: To the "Sovereign Four" early on.
- Worthy Opponent
- Big Bad Wannabe
- History Repeats: Once again placed 7th out of 14th.

- Smug Snake
- Sixth Ranger Traitor: Again
- Tall, Dark and Snarky
- Unwitting Pawn: Of ChillTown.
From season 6
- Big Eater

- Chivalrous Pervert: Or Handsome Lech depending on whom he's talking to.
- Large Ham
- Man Child
- Took a Level in Jerkass: To some viewers. He seems a lot more mean-spirited this season.
Big Brother 6
- Badass Beard
- The Chessmaster: For the first four weeks, it looked like the Sovereign Four would run the table on the house thanks to their consecutive HOH wins and Kaysar's plan to throw all the attention on ChillTown.
- Deal with the Devil: Kaysar makes an arrangement with ChillTown to get rid of floaters over them in order to keep the house at large focused on ChillTown instead of Kaysar's alliance. It would have worked had Danielle not won HOH in Week Five.
- Disc One Final Boss: Once again.
- History Repeats: Kaysar once again ended up in 10th, just missing the jury.
