After a record breaking number of days — 97 to be exact — our resident undercover cop Derrick Levasseur was officially crowned the winner of Big Brother 16 last Wednesday night!

Now that the season has wrapped up and most of the after parties are over, we at Big Brother Source wanted to offer our sincere congratulations to this year’s winner.

Derrick played an absolutely masterful game this season. He was virtually never in danger — even down to the final eviction on finale night. Not to mention, he was never nominated after a whopping 55 nominations were made! The task of never being nominated was especially difficult this season as the Battle of the Block twist reigned for more than half the season and required four people go on the block each week. How he was able to accomplish that still baffles me.

Derrick had one of the most amazing social games I’ve ever seen and every sentence he uttered was carefully calculated. He managed to be behind everyone’s ouster from the house and still have (most of) them like him as they walked out the door. I would often be sitting there watching the feeds and thinking “Derrick is just so good. How are these people not catching on?” Honestly, after seeing the season play out in full, these people never had a chance. Even if they did start to catch on, they weren’t able to do anything about it and were sent home next.

Derrick seemingly never took a break from playing the game and he never slipped up — something that’s extremely hard to do after 3 months. Arguably, Derrick played the most flawless game in Big Brother history and I have a feeling that his gameplay is going to be studied for years to come.

It will surely be interesting to see Derrick come back and play the game again — there’s no doubt he will be asked. But until then, congratulations to Derrick on an amazing victory!

Each week after the live eviction, Big Brother alum Jeff Schroeder (BB11/BB13) sits down with that week’s evicted houseguest to discuss their recent ouster from the house, their mistakes in the game, and the general experience of being a Big Brother houseguest.

This time, things were a little different! Jeff sat down with the winner of Big Brother 16 — Derrick Levasseur for a 40-minute chat.

In the interview, Derrick talks about who he would’ve taken to the final two, the only person he couldn’t manipulate during the season, and his favorite moment in the house!
