Default What is the bigger blunder: Topaz's botched vote or Marcellas not using the veto?

For those new to the Big Brother USA Format, the consensus among fans is the biggest blunder ever was when Marcellas didn't use the veto on himself in BB3 (see video). But does Topaz's botched "150%" vote take away Marcellas's crown for biggest idiot ever?

Marcellas because it got him evicted.

Topaz's mistake didn't affect her game at all, she had already lost. She still deserves a slap from Julie though, because it was really stupid.

Lawon's decision to request to be evicted because it would give him super powers.

but Marcellas not using the veto is probably one of my favourite BB moments of all time... the more I think about it, so is "150%"

I give Marcellas some slack.

It was the first season the veto came into play. No one really knew about secret alliances back then. He thought he had a legit alliance with Danielle. And he got played by top a 3 player ever!

But that was at final 10. Marcellas would have been guaranteed final 4 if he used the veto. Anyways, it all happened from start to finish on live television in a few minutes so, in my opinion, Marcellas will forever be the classic blunder.

It's interesting that both of these moments involve a black girl screwing over the black gay guy though.

If i was a black gay guy, i'd be like wtf....

yea it was the first season but no slack imo. you're on the block. you have veto. use it. it wasnt the first time it was around that season.

i still think Lawon going out like he wanted to cause of the super powers that was already brought up is the biggest blunder. cant forget that. i remember the moment watching the feeds when he said that. good times.

^ Technically so did Marcellas's move. If he had used the veto then (if I remember correctly) Lisa would be out the door.

I strongly believe Topaz's vote wasn't an accident. I really, really believe she meant to vote for Jillian

AJ stated there would be a $100,000 mistake in the jury
Alec said he hated the winner as a person but was going to love how they won
Topaz said she knew who she was voting for 100%
Peter said they were preventing an injustice.

The "mistake" was clearly Topaz's vote
Alec obviously hated Jillian for getting him out and all of her lies
Topaz recited a quote from Jillian
Peter made a point. It would have been a huge injustice for Gary to win after being evicted and brought back in three evictions later (The whole season was rigged for him) and with Jillian's HoH's, lack of being nominated, and powerful alliance with Emmett, she was clearly the more deserving winner.

Marcellas made the stupidest move.

Unfortunately his on-air persona was completely faked for the show. It was all just a fabricated character :/

I do not know which one was the worst but what I do know is which one I enjoyed most and that is hands down Topaz's stupidity.


Never liked how BB Canada was trying to rig the show so in the end Topaz managed to screw up the rigged part and gave the show the justice it deserved.

Loved BB Canada by the way. Are there any plans for a second season.

Probably Marcellas, cause that caused his eviction.

Topaz screwed his friend by voting incorrectly, but by a stupid self made mistake. Marcellas decision was intentional. And incredibly stupid.

Why is it a rig to have a twist to bring back a contestant people liked?
