Celebrity Big Brother 3: Fans Shocked Shanna Moakler Didn’t Win AFP

Many fans who kept up with Celebrity Big Brother 3 all season long are disappointed that Shanna Moakler didn’t win America’s Favorite Houseguest (AFH) a.k.a. America’s Favorite Player (AFP) at the grand finale despite their overwhelming campaign on social media. Looking at online polls and social media activity, the two clear frontrunners to win AFP at the CBB3 finale were Carson Kressley and Shanna Moakler. Nonetheless, diehard Big Brother fans were confident that Shanna would ultimately win the title.

Following Miesha Tate’s crowning as the winner of the Celebrity Big Brother season 3 by a jury vote of 7-1 against runner-up Todrick Hall, host Julie Chen Moonves went on to announce which contestant had gotten the most votes to win the title of America’s Favorite Houseguest. Julie announced that Lamar Odom, Carson, and Shanna were the three celebrities who got the most AFP votes from the public. In the end, though, Julie revealed that Carson won the title instead of Shanna.


A lot of fans certainly loved Carson on Celebrity Big Brother and outside the show as well, but a huge expectation was placed on Shanna winning America’s Favorite Houseguest. Some viewers believed that Shanna being crowned AFH/AFP would be the final blow to Todrick’s journey on the show given that she was his arch-enemy throughout the season. So when Julie announced that Carson had won AFP, many fans took to social media to express their frustration with the voting results, which can be seen in the tweets below. With that said, most fans noted that they do like Carson and just wish Shanna had won this title instead.

Despite some fans’ disappointment with the AFP results, most viewers were glad to see Todrick losing Celebrity Big Brother 3 after everything he was seen saying and doing in the live feeds. Many viewers had reservations about Miesha winning as well, but there was a social media consensus that she would make for a better winner. All season long, Miesha and Todrick became BFFs and very close allies in the game. Todrick often thought that he and Miesha formed a power duo that had similarities with Derrick Levasseur and Cody Calafiore from BB16. Within that context, Todrick thought of himself as the big mastermind (Derrick) and thought of Miesha as the competition beast (Cody).

On the other hand, that’s not how viewers – and the other competitors – saw Todrick and Miesha on CBB3. Many called out the way Todrick and Miesha talked about Shanna and what she chose to wear on the show. Todrick was also criticized for bringing up Chris Kirkpatrick’s son on Celebrity Big Brother 3 and betraying Todd Bridges’ trust.
