Big Brother Wiki

Michael Robert "Mike Boogie" Malin is the winner of Big Brother 7 (US). He first appeared on Big Brother 2 (US) and later appeared on Big Brother 14 (US).

In Big Brother 2 (US), Mike, a rap enthusiast, 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 4-1 vote, placing 8th, and becoming the fourth and first ever male member of the jury. He voted for Will to win.

In Big Brother 7 (US), Mike and Will revived their Chilltown alliance from Big Brother 2 and managed to control most of the game, with the duo blatantly lying to most of the houseguests, 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 his closest ally's Will's eviction at the final four, Mike managed to make it to the final two and win the season in a 6-1 vote.

Entering Big Brother 14 (US) without Will for the first time, Mike was initially 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 who 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.[3]
