Big Brother Season 6 was filmed in 2005. It included 14 houseguests. Who was the big winner? The houseguest names are: Kaysar Ridha, Ashlea Evans, Ivette Corredero, Michael Donnellan, Eric "Cappy" Littmann, Sarah Hrejsa, Jennifer Vasquez, Rachel Plencner, Howie Gordon, James Rhine, Beau Beasley, April Lewis, Janelle Pierzina, and Maggie Ausburn. The ages ranged from 22 to 36. One of my favorite all-time players was on this season. Can you guess who my favorite player from this season?
Janelle Pierzina was a 25 year old VIP Cocktail Waitress from Miami Beach, Florida when she entered the Big Brother House for Season 6 in 2005. She was by far the best player on this Season, and one of the best players of all-time.
In my eyes, she finished in first place (despite the fact that another player received the prize money). She has her own unique style, and quickly became America's favorite. She is a great example to women, especially women who get classified as pretty. She showed that you can be attractive, have a brain, and also be physically fit to compete against the guys. Thank you Janelle!
Janelle also competed on Amazing Race with another former Big Brother houseguest. Janelle is a top-selling Real Estate Broker in Minnesota. She is married to Jess Desanto in 2010, and they have three children. She can be found on Instagram.
More to come regarding this bombshell!
Maggie Ausburn was a 27 year old Emergency Room Nurse from Las Vegas, Nevada. Her secret partner was Eric. Just like Las Vegas is known for gambling, Maggie got pure lucky and beat out the best player during Season 6. The best player, and one of my all-time favorites is the third place finisher. Maggie lives a quiet life since winning.
Ivette Corredero was a 25 year old Waitress from Miami Beach, Florida when she entered the Big Brother house for Season 6. She finished in 2nd place. Her secret partner was Beau Beasley. She can be found on Twitter. Ivette was lucky to win the final Head of Household. She selected Maggie, instead of Janelle to sit next to her. Would things have ended differently for Ivette if she selected Janelle? She lost to a 4:3 vote.
April Lewis was a 31 year old Pharmaceutical Sales Rep from Dallas, Texas in 2005. She entered the Big Brother house and her secret partner was Jennifer Vasquez. April finished in 4th place. As you will soon see, this season was the only season so far to feature a final four that was all female. She can be found on Twitter and Instagram. It is reported that April has been married to Matthew Lewis since 2004. She appeared on a Lifetime special regarding marriages in a romance rut. #afforci

Which Big Brother Season will you enjoy the most? Season 5 or Season 6?
You will notice the differences between CBS' Big Brother Season 5 versus Season 6. Season's 5 was themed the DNA for Do Not Assume, as some of the houseguest were surprised to find themselves competing against their relatives. We voted Season 6 as the best of the two. Our favorite houseguests is Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha, and both were on Season 6. We can safely state that Season 6 is the best Season of all the earlier seasons (1 through 6). Watch it and you will not be disappointed!
Demeanor & Intellect:
Very rowdy group in Season 5. The southern belles aka the twins: Adria and Natalie were very candid with their thoughts. Marvin, also from the south, was very direct and straight forward. Drew appeared to be the most intelligent. Mike was the idea man, as he firmly stood up for what he believed.
Season 6 had a cast that included behavior types that were classy (Janelle & Kaysar) all the way down to ghetto (Ivette). Eric, a firefighter from Las Vegas, was very abrasive in his communication style. Maggie was overall quiet, but sneaky.
Head of Household Intensity
HOH included and they were somewhat challenging for Season 5. The earlier seasons had it easy when it came to competitions.
HOH competitions are getting better. This season included a nice variety of endurance and trivia style competitions. Howie was the first to win the HOH twice.
The Jury was sequestered. It was the last 7 or so evictees.
Sequestered jury as well for Season 6. There wasn't a lot of time spent showcasing the jury.
None for Season 6.
Golden Veto continued. The houseguest were able to pick other houseguest to play. This is why Nakomis great idea to backdoor Jase worked well. Instead of nominating him, they decided to make sure he didn't play the Veto competition and backdoored him.
Season 6 continued the same type of Golden Veto where they picked their own player.
Season 5 had to use an old-fashioned ringer type of washer to wash clothes.
Season 6 had a traditional washer and dryer.
Season 5 Nakomis was the only smoker.
Season 6 had two traditional smokers: Janelle and April. Kaysar smoked hookah.
