As the Big Brother 24 jury prepares for finale night, they reflect on the season and choose which of their fellow jurors played the best game.
As the Big Brother 24 jury members prepare to crown the winner of the season, they chose which of their fellow jurors played the best game this summer. The jury is made up of Joseph Abdin, Michael Bruner, Indy Santos, Jasmine Davis, Kyle Capener, Terrance Higgins, Alyssa Snider, and Brittany Hoopes. After the final Head of Household (HOH) chooses whom he or she wants to sit next to and compete for the $750,000 grand prize, either Taylor Hale, Monte Taylor, or Matt “Turner” Turner will become the ninth member of the jury.
Michael had a record-breaking Big Brother 24 season. He broke Janelle Pierzina’s single-season veto record, which stood for 16 years. He won six vetoes, breaking Janelle’s record of five. Michael also tied Janelle’s overall wins record of nine combined Head of Household (HOH) and Power of Veto competitions. Although he was a comp beast, Michael’s social game came into question when he and Brittany did not reveal Kyle’s problematic racial comments right away. Some of the houseguests felt that he waited until he could use the information to benefit his game, which rubbed them the wrong way.
While the rest of the jury agreed that the best player was Michael, Michael, chose Joseph. In an interview with EW, Indy said Michael played the best game because he is a super fan and won “almost every single competition.” She added that he has “a really good social game. He’s a really pure, nice person. So I believe he played 100 percent the best game, even if I didn’t agree with a bunch of stuff that he was part of.” She said that Michael and Taylor deserved to win the game the most. Jasmine agreed with Indy’s points and said Michael was “very strategic and calculated.” Joseph noted that Michael played the best game because he broke a record, and “it took the house to unify together to take him out.” Although Kyle said that it is a tough question, he also named “my guy, Michael” as the best player for the same reasons as his fellow jurors. He does not seem to hold a grudge against Michael for revealing his problematic racial comments.
Big Brother 24 houseguest Terrance also chose Michael, which is surprising since he was one of the players who took the most issue with how Michael handled the Kyle situation. He admitted, “Michael definitely had a great social game. He competed amazingly.” Alyssa also chose new Big Brother legend Michael, saying that she is sure that everybody is on the same page with choosing him. “He is the comp beast of our season and he is an angel and we love him very much,” she commented. Michael’s number one ally Brittany said she still has a lot of questions for him after his betrayal during his eviction speech, but commented “I can admire an iconic Big Brother player as a fan myself. It was a dream come true to play with him in this game.” Michael did not choose himself as the best player, but instead selected Joseph. He said, “Big Brother, at its core, is a social game, and Joseph had a fantastic social game. He was welcomed into every room to talk strategy, and I think that’s a sign of a great player.”
Big Brother 24 has some of the best players in a long time, but there is no denying what Michael achieved in the game this summer. He established himself as a new Big Brother legend. Although many of the houseguests were upset with him, the fact that they acknowledged his greatness indicates that they most likely will not be a bitter jury when it comes to choosing the winner of the game among Taylor, Monte, and Turner. Big Brother fans will surely see many of these players again in a future all-star season, with Michael leading the pack.
