With the 2010’s in the rear-view mirror, we decided to take a look back at every season of Big Brother from the previous decade. In our look back, we decided to rank the 5 most memorable moments of the decade.
With the 2010’s now over, we decided to reflect on every season of Big Brother that took place last decade. There have been many twists over the course of the decade. So, we decided to rank the 5 most memorable moments of the 2010’s. This will include both the Celebrity and Over the Top versions of Big Brother.
To qualify for this list, this moment had to have happened between 2010 and 2019. It also has to be a moment that if you asked a Big Brother fan about it, they would know exactly what it is. It does not remember if they remember that moment fondly or not. No. 2 on the list is Dan Gheesling blindsiding Shane Meaney.
No. 2: Dan Gheesling blindsides Shane Meaney
This plan had been a week or so in the making. After Frank Eudy was finally evicted in the front end of week 8’s double eviction Dan targeted Ian Terry for being the biggest threat on the back end. However, this plan was foiled when Ian won the POV. Ian then won HOH in week 9 and Dan shifted his target to Shane for being the next biggest threat.
Ian nominated Shane alongside Jenn Arroyo for eviction. However, Shane won the POV and unknowingly foiled Dan’s plan in the process.
At the final 4, Danielle won HOH and was in the best position of anyone in the house. She had a showmance with Shane and tight alliance with Dan. Dan knew this and wanted to get rid of Shane to secure himself a spot in the final 2 (he was also tight with Ian) and get rid of who he saw as the biggest threat.
Dan first convinced Danielle to put himself up alongside Ian so that he could lull Shane into a false sense of security. Dan knew that Shane would do what Danielle wanted and Danielle would do what he wanted if this scenario happened. Danielle did as Dan wanted and put him and Ian on the block.
Danielle then won the POV that week and wasn’t going to use it. However, Dan had one last trick up his sleeve. Dan was able to convince Danielle to take him off the block on the condition that he would evict Ian. At the live eviction, Danielle used the POV to save Dan. This meant Shane was the replacement nominee. Moments later, Dan completed his master plan by evicting Shane, blindsiding Shane and Danielle.
This is arguably the biggest blindside in Big Brother history. It is also one of the most talked about moments. For that, it checks in at No. 2 on our countdown.
