For those of you who think Dan lost by one of the "biggest" margins in the history of BB--- here's the previous seasons and their votes. There were 5 --yep 5 other seasons that put season 14 in pretty normal company.
Big Brother 1 Eddie McGee 59% Differed completely from later seasons, where eliminations were called "banishments" instead of "evictions" and occurred via the viewers instead of votes.
Big Brother 2 Will "Dr. Will" Kirby 52 (63) First season to feature the Head of Household (HoH) and in which a HouseGuest, Justin Sebik, was expelled from the game. Also the only season to have nullified votes in the finale.
Big Brother 3 Lisa Donahue 91
Big Brother 4 Jun Song 61 Featured the "X-Factor", in which five people were joined by ex-boyfriends or ex-girlfriends. Also the first season to feature the "Big Brother Jury", where the last seven evicted HouseGuests voted for who to win. First season to feature the Diamond POV.

Big Brother 10 Dan Gheesling 70 Noted as a "back to basics" season by both CBS and the production team. As part of the back to basics format, there was no "twist" to the season, live audiences returned for the Thursday eviction shows for the first time since Big Brother 1, and for the first time since Big Brother 3 the HouseGuests were all complete strangers.
