Big Brother 18 started the season with two players who won America’s Favorite Player their seasons. Frank Eudy won America’s Favorite Player during Big Brother 14, and James Huling won it for Big Brother 17.
Frank fell out of America’s grace pretty early on during the season. Him getting evicted pre-jury also made him less likely to win America’s Favorite Player again.
However, James retained his favorite status throughout the season. Some feed watchers turned on James for not playing a great game. However, casual viewers remained loyal to James throughout the show.
