“Big Brother” fans, in our earlier poll asking who’s your favorite winner of all time, our readers narrowed down the list of options to the Top 5: Will Kirby (Season 2), Dan Gheesling (Season 10), Rachel Reilly (Season 13), Derrick Levasseur (Season 16) and Nicole Franzel (Season 18). Did your favorite make the cut? Of this group, who’s the best of the best? Vote in our “Big Brother” winners poll below.
In our initial poll, Dan earned the most votes with 17% support from our readers. Will came in second place with 15%, followed by Rachel in third with 12%, Nicole in fourth with 11% and Derrick in fifth with 10%. All of the other “Big Brother” winners nabbed less than 10% of our readers’ votes, so we’re not including them in our new poll.
Debuting as a summer program on July 5, 2000, Julie Chen has hosted “Big Brother” since day one. The show continues to be a ratings hit for CBS both on and off TV, with the first online-only version of the show debuting this fall, dubbed “Big Brother: Over the Top.” Take a tour of all the past “Big Brother” winners in our photo gallery above.
