The results are in for our first round of the Celebrity Big Brother popularity poll. You, the Big Brother Network readers have spoken, and Ross Mathews was overwhelmingly our readers’ favorite Houseguest during Rounds 1-3.
Ross earned 41.8 percent of the vote and no one came close to touching him the whole time the poll was open. Now-evicted Shannon Elizabeth came in a distant second with 21.51 percent of the vote. Marissa Jaret Winokur and James Maslow came in third and fourth respectively with a little more than 8 percent of the vote each.
Metta World Peace rounded out the top 5 with 5.6 percent of the vote. Omarosa and Ariadna Guiterrez followed Metta with a very close margin of 3.67 percent and 3.62 percent. Brandi Glanville, Mark McGrath, Chuck Liddell and Keshia Knight Pulliam held up the bottom of the poll, in that order. Keshia failed to even get 1 percent of the vote, which isn’t surprising since she was the second person evicted, and Big Brother fans are often harsh on players who don’t want to be in the game. And let’s not forget she hasn’t really been on TV in over 20 years.
Check out the full percentages and rankings in our chart below plus the original poll results here.
I’ll be curious to see if Ross can hold on to the top spot since he has seemingly lost some support on social media and on other blogs. Big Brother fans can be a fickle bunch, and if they see someone playing a game different than they would, they can flip on a dime. It’ll also be interesting to see where Shannon falls on the next poll since she’s been recently evicted.
At this point in the game, I expect to see some changes in our next poll. This, as you know, is a short season and people are playing hard and fast so it can be hard to pick a favorite based solely on gameplay. A lot of people have based their votes on who they already knew and liked even before they knew they were going to be on the show.
Be sure to vote in our next popularity poll posted to below. Also, how do you base your votes? Are you voting based on who is playing the best game or who is annoying you the least? Or who you were already a fan of before the show? Let us know in the comments below.
