I know this has probably been done before but i'm new to this section of the forum. I just wanted to know who everyone thinks is the greatest of all time and the reasoning behind it. I understand this is probably a two horse race between Dan Dr Will.

And to go with it what do you think is the greatest play of all time?

I voted for Dan but it's really close between him and Will. But Dan had better rankings.

I think Jun, Maggie and Hayden deserve to be on this poll. Whether you love or hate them.

I voted for Danielle Donato I know some people say she was not that good but i think she played the game good in both her seasons and matured alot in S13 and i just loved her as a person in the last season and she loves the game.

My second choice would be Dan Gheesling

3rd Rachel Reilly yeah she was whiny in her 1st season but she was a good gameplayer but i grew to like her more in S13 her only downfall imo is when she plays with Brendan who brings her down in the game.

Rachel was good at comps but a good gameplayer? I don't think so, CBS practically rigged her win at the end of BB13.

Daniele Donato was the best player in BB8 and should have won over Dick easily. She had good instincts in BB13 but just didn't have the right timing on acting upon them. I really like her though after pretty much despising her in BB8 (what can I say, I was a Jen Johnson fan).

Rather than people in that list with their huge egos and flashy moves it would probably be someone like Maggie lol
Not particularly likeable but played a very cool yet ruthless game. She had about 3 or 4 allies that would easily take the fall for her if a rival came sniffing her way and shield her from being evicted. It gave her a nice safety net

In a house completely divided she managed to convince someone on the opposing side to put two of his own alliance up.
Plus she also played for jury votes in her goodbye messages, quite a hard thing to do in such a bitter personal season.

yeah i would say producers helped Rachel out alot in BB13 i mean bringing back the Duo twist was obvious lol.

I agree about danni winning BB8 i think she was robbed tbh i liked Jen to her and Dani are actually friends now to

I personally think Dan is easily the greatest player. 2 seasons with 2 pretty different games played and was completely robbed of a second title by an extremely bitter jury who knew they were not voting for the best player but more of a revenge vote for Dan stabbing them in the back like he had to do.
Some of the ways Dan got himself out of trouble in S14 were close to perfection.

I agree with the person who said Maggie deserved to be in the poll. I find it astounding she managed to just sail through her season when she was obviously such a huge threat.

I voted for Janelle, based mostly on her BB6 performance. It's rare that a houseguest, especially a female can behave so brazen and confidently and make it as far as she did. BB7 she still played a strong game especially in the first half of the season but ultimately let emotions get the better of her.

She would likely have performed well in BB14 as well, it was just that her reputation preceded her to the point that everyone was overly cautious of her. Though I don't really think her heart was in it.

Why are Jeff & Jordan even in the poll lol There have been so many great players and admire the ones like Dick, Rachel & Janelle who had targets on them from the very start to make it so far in the game!

Jeff and Jordan were terrible. I'd definitely rate Jordan as one of if not the worst winner ever.

My top 4 in order is: Dan - Will - Jun - Maggie.

All different stratagies, but for me, easily the best gameplaying winners, and all-round houseguests of all time. Dan trumps WIll for me, only slightly, because on his second go, he very nearly did it again, where as Will kinda got caught out. Although sometimes it'll be the other way round, depending on my mood

agree completely Jeff got the good edits and very long edits remember when he was evicted and he was still in the next episode for the whole thing doing DR rants a rumour was they bought him back just to do the DR rants.

As for Jordan she was just stupid and did not deserve to win BUT i am glad she won over Natalie who i hated more.

Though you could say he got caught out too as he had lost many jury votes as soon as he sent them out the door. He made it almost impossible to win.

But the jury should have voted for the best player in the game surely, not the one they liked better..

They should but they don't. lol
Plus Ian's game was good enough to deserve recognition too.
Dan really should have taken Danielle to the end, as soon as he was taken by Ian I knew it was over for him.

Yeah Dan was always going to be taking Danielle to the end if he won the final HoH. I don't even think that jury was bitter enough to vote for Dan's puppet over Dan.

Maggot is the best BB player ever, even though she is utterly loathsome.

Ian's game wasnt as great as his housemates thought. A lot of them did interviews and talked about how great he played the game and he followed the model he wrote up to a tee, but Ian took a lot of credit that was not due to him that season. He completely ruined Britney's game, but that was her own fault for being outwardly aligned with him, I guess. Dan manipulated every single he of them and didnt have to be aggressive t do it. Him evicting Shane was gold. He even got both Danielle and Ian to throw the first part of the final HoH. Lol

I haven't watched the majority of these people play so I can't make an informed vote. I did watch Dan last season though and the only reason he stood out was because he was put in a house with absolute morons.

I'm still certain the reason the likes of Kara, Ashley, Danielle, Shane, Jenn, Will and Joe were picked was just to make the coaches serve a purpose since none of them had a clue what they were doing. Almost all of them were facebook recruited...

The jury have said that Dan wouldn't have won whoever he was against, they weren't voting for him at all.
