In Big Brother 3, Marcellas was infamously known for winning the Golden Power of Veto and refusing to use it on himself since his friend Amy Crews was also a nominee. Ultimately, Head of HouseholdJason Guy evicted him in a tiebreaker. He placed 5th and was the eighth member of The Jury. Marcellas's move would come to be recognized as one of the worst moves in Big Brother history.
In Big Brother 7, the old rivalry between Marcellas and Danielle Reyes was reignited, however, they later made amends. Marcellas was evicted in Week 6 by a unanimous 6-0 vote, placing 9th and becoming the first jury member. Marcellas was the only jury member to vote for Erika Landin to win.

First and foremost, the challenge. An unreal opportunity to do something so far-removed from myself. The chance to meet new people, and to claim my $500,000! What strengths do you bring to BIG BROTHER? My ego. My intelligence. My openness to new experiences. My sense of humor. My massive ego. What weaknesses do you bring to BIG BROTHER? My massive ego. My need for excitement. My intolerance of ignorance and meanness in others. What comfort item from home will you miss the most?: My big screen TV! I'm like a junkie with cop shows. I can watch Law & Order reruns a million times! What type of news from the outside world will you miss the most? None, actually. Lately, the news has been so horrid that ignorance (to it) could be bliss. Do you tend to perform better in physical or mental competitions? I can be very lazy. Mental competitions, definitely. I'm also a little clumsy, and if I have to run, forget it! It's like, "Run, Black Forrest (Gump), run!" How do you plan to win BIG BROTHER? I intend to win by doing the unexpected in every situation. I intend to do whatever it takes to turn bad situations into positive situations in my favor. I want to be kind and truthful, but I will do everything and anything to be last man standing! What is your biggest fear as you begin BIG BROTHER? My biggest fear is that I'll be nominated for eviction the first week. What a way that would be to start! To come off as a stereotype. I can't help but feel some responsibility to my race, my family and friends to portray "us" in a favorable light. What is your motto? First one on the cover of Time wins!
