In Big Brother 2 (US), Mike was best known for being first houseguest in Big Brother history to win a Head of Household competition, forming a showmance with Krista Stegall and friendship with Will Kirby, and creating the Chilltown alliance. In Week 4 however, he was evicted by a 4 to 1 vote, becoming the first male houseguest in Big Brother history to be "evicted" and become a member of The Jury. He finished in 8th place, and was the fourth member of the jury. He voted for Will to win.
In Big Brother 7 (US), he and Will revived their Chilltown alliance from season 2 and managed to control most of the game, blatantly lying to most of the houseguests by forming fake alliances and orchestrating their evictions. He had a showmance with Erika Landin, for whom he claimed to have no true feelings and only used to get further in the game. For these reasons, Mike is generally known as one of the most notorious villains in the show's history. Despite Will's eviction at the final four, Mike managed to make it to the final two and win the season in a 6 to 1 jury vote.
Entering Big Brother 14 (US) without Will, he became a coach to the new players. He was aligned with Frank Eudy who was his Dr. Will replacement. When the coaches had the opportunity to return to the game Mike was the only coach to chose not to return, but was forced to return as the other coaches opted to. In Week 6, his teammate/ally Ian Terry managed to orchestrate his elimination. Mike was evicted during the first round of the first Double Eviction by a vote of 5-2, making him the second coach to get evicted, placing 10th, and missing the jury stage for the first time in his Big Brother career.

One of BIG BROTHER’s most infamous players of all time, Mike “Boogie” Malin, returns to the house for a third time. He first competed in season 2 as half of the notorious “Chilltown Alliance” with Dr. Will, and he came back to win season 7, BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS. According to Mike Boogie, he is “back to win… and plans on being in this game a very long time this summer.” This 41-year-old Restaurateur is originally from Concord, New Hampshire and currently lives in Studio City, California. Since the last time we saw him on BIG BROTHER, Boogie has welcomed a 9-month-old son into the world.
Mike is one of four HouseGuests, along with Janelle Pierzina, Nikki Grahame, and Jade Goody, to compete on three different seasons of Big Brother. Both Mike and Janelle played together in Big Brother 7 and Big Brother 14.
Mike is the only winner to return for another season after their win and be evicted before the jury stage (Dick Donato was also eliminated before the jury in Big Brother 13, but he quit and was not evicted).
Big Brother 14 is the only season where Mike failed to reach the Jury stage.
Mike is the only person to be a finalist, jury member, and be evicted before the jury stage of the game.
Despite this, Mike has never been a sequestered juror, as the jury members did not start being sequestered until Big Brother 4.
He is the only HouseGuest to play in more than one season where another houseguest was expelled (Big Brother 2 and Big Brother 14).
In Big Brother 14, his team was the only team with every member winning a competition.
If the coaches twist had remained and Ian Terry still managed to win Big Brother 14, Mike would have won an extra $100,000.
Mike and Joe Arvin are the only houseguests to share a zing from Zingbot and not have their own individual zings.
Mike and Ian are the only returning winners to be evicted the first time they got nominated on their subsequent seasons.
Coincidentally, Mike was Ian's coach on Big Brother 14.
