Impressive ‘Big Brother’ Records Set by Paul, Victor, Frankie and Dan Gheesling

Big Brother alumni Paul Abrahamian, Frankie Grande, Dan Gheesling and Victor Arroyo all have one thing common. Each of them have set a record during their time in the BB house. From most days to most HoH wins, there is something cementing them into Big Brother history. So, in anticipation for the upcoming BB21 season, here are the records they have set.

Big Brother: Paul Abrahamian Has Lived in the House the Longest

A title previously shared by Janelle Pierzina and James Huling is most days in the Big Brother house at 177. Now, is held by Paul Abrahamian with a total of 191 days over two back-to-back seasons. Not only is Paul Abrahamian the Big Brother houseguest with the longest amount of time spent in the BB game, he is also the only one to ever come in second place twice.

He was runner up to Nicole Franzel on Big Brother season 18 and then again to Josh Martinez on 19. Which was a shock because he had practically controlled almost everyone up until the very end during his second time around.

Frankie Grande is the HoH King

Frankie Grande holds the record for the most Big Brother HoH competitions won during a season of Big Brother. While he was on BB16, he won five different HoH titles. The competitions he won were Go Fly a Kite, Deviled Eggs, Country Hits, Dead of Household, and Seed Saw. Although for two of them, he ended up losing his title to his co-HoH in the Battle of the Block.

But, the brother of Ariana Grande is also the first houseguest to win a BoB on his own. His partner Caleb Reynolds tried to throw it and failed. He later went on to appear on Celebrity Big Brother UK.

Dan Gheesling: Forever One of the Greatest of All-Time

Known as one of the best to ever play the Big Brother game, Dan Gheesling was a manipulative mastermind. During his first season 10, Dan managed to make it all the way to the end and won the $500,000 grand prize. Not only that, but he also was the first and only player to ever win by a unanimous jury vote. Every single member of the jury voted for him to win.

Then, he went into BB14 as a coach which resulted in him returning to the game as a player in a special Big Brother twist. He broke another record by coming in second place which is the only time a winner has ever left the house twice on finale night. Fans often argue he was better than the legend Will Kirby.

Big Brother: Victor Arroyo Came Back Twice

After getting evicted on Big Brother 18 Victor Arroyo was lucky enough to participate in a Battle Back. In which he won and returned to the game. Yet, once he was evicted for the second time, fans thought that he was gone for good, That it, until the show revealed a second Battle Back competition.

Victor ended up winning again, giving him the title of the most Big Brother Battle Back wins in one season. And although he didn’t win the game, he might have gotten a better prize because he is now engaged to fellow BB18 houseguest Nicole Franzel.
