In honor of the upcoming 17th season of Big Brother, this is a sort of fan cast. If I were going to cast fictional characters, who would I cast?
Mr. Gold/Rumpelstiltskin [Once Upon a Time]
He's conniving, manipulative, and has a sort of charm about him. I think he would probably win if he were in the Big Brother house. Then again, karma has a way of catching up to people, so...maybe he wouldn't win, after all.
Tyrion Lannister [Game of Thrones]
Tyrion Lannister is, by far, one of the smartest men I've seen on any show. He knows how to play the game, whether it is the Game of Thrones or Big Brother competition. I'm sure he'd do just fine.
Klaus Mikaelson [Vampire Diaries/The Originals]
Minus the murder, of course. Klaus is just as cunning and manipulative as the previous two listed. He's smart, funny, and very witty. I think he'd be a great contender.
Clarke Griffin [The 100]
Clarke Griffin is headstrong and all about honesty, bravery, and doing what's right. Unless she has to do otherwise. I'd say she wouldn't be above backstabbing and manipulation to win the game, though.
Malachai "Kai" Parker [The Vampire Diaries]
Take away the murderous tendencies and I bet Malachai Parker would be the perfect Big Brother contestant. Plus, he's adorable and funny, always coming at you with the best quips.
Sarah Manning [Orphan Black]
She's a true survivor, I'm sure Sarah knows a thing or two about winning people over. Plus, her sarcastic attitude would make her so interesting to watch.
Spencer Hastings [Pretty Little Liars]
Spencer is smart and calculating, with a knack for not trusting people. I think she'd do just fine.
Oh, Gabriel. He's funny, a prankster, and super smart. What else could you ask for in a contestant?
Pamela Swynford de Beaufort [True Blood]
Regardless of her long ass name, Pam would be a great contender for Big Brother. She's smart and witty and, if you earn it, she's very trustworthy. But you should also watch your back, because she won't hesitate to throw you under the bus if it benefits her.
Olivia Pope [Scandal]
A force to be reckoned with, I do believe. Olivia Pope might just be the one who would come out on top in the end - as always.
