As soon as you enter the Big Brother house, it is crucial that you align yourself with the best players in the game. If you don't align yourself with anyone, well in the wise words of Big Brother 13 winner, Rachel Reilly, "Floaters, grab a life vest!" Continuing with the water puns, your alliance can either allow you to sink or swim your way to the $500,000 prize. But if this season was any indication (Devin) it is important to feel out your fellow houseguests first before aligning with them, just in case they go off the rails and leave you high and dry (Devin).

This season, there have been around 200 alliances. Okay, maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but it seems like everyone is making an alliance with everyone this season, and the alliances they do make are bigger than ever.

I don’t know how they manage to keep their alliances straight, I would need a journal to keep track of who I said I would take to the final two with, and the two (completely different) people I promised a final three deal with. Oh, the tangled webs we weave in the Big Brother house.

Are you having a tough time keeping track of who is “loyal” to whom this season, or just want to walk down memory lane remembering all of the now defunct alliances? Here's a guide to Big Brother 16’s many alliances, so you can be the judge of which one will make it to the end.
