Tyler Crispen and Angela Rummans seemed sure their Level 6 alliance would carry them and Kaycee Clark all the way to the final three. But JC Mounduix had other plans. After winning a crucial Head of Household competition, he placed the lovebirds on the block. When "Veto Queen" Kaycee won her fifth Veto competition of the season, she was forced to make a gut-wrenching decision between her two buds, splitting up the showmance.

Clay Honeycutt and Shelli Poole got together almost immediately on Big Brother 17 and became the couple to crack. Things aren't always as they seem in the Big Brother house and, despite his promise to keep them safe for the week, James put Clelli up for eviction together.

The pair fought valiantly for possession of the Power of Veto, but failed, and the lovebirds were separated when Clay was sent home. Cue the waterworks!

Jeff and Jordan (Big Brother 11)

After more than 50 days in the house, things were getting pretty tense on Big Brother 11, especially when America's favorite Big Brother couple, Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd, were on the eviction block side-by-side.

The Houseguests' votes resulted in a tie, and, as Head of Household, Kevin cast the tie-breaking vote to send Jeff home. The sadness didn't last forever for these two, though! Jordan went on to win BB11.

Eric and Jessica (Big Brother 8)

Eric and Jessica (Big Brother 8)

A somewhat unlikely couple, Eric and Jessica created a showmance made in Big Brother heaven. But all good things come to an end, and their bond was broken when Jessica was evicted during Big Brother 8’s ninth week.

When host Julie Chen played the Houseguests’ goodbye videos for Jessica, viewers got to see Eric’s adorable adieu, complete with an “I love you.” Aww!

Will and Janelle (Big Brother 7)

Will and Janelle (Big Brother 7)

Dr. Will Kirby and Janelle Pierzina were both expert game players, so it’s no wonder they teamed up for a showmance on Big Brother 7 (aka All Stars).

Though their flirtation was fun, they never let it distract them from their game play. When Big Brother 7 was down to the final four, Janelle used the Power of Veto to remove herself from the block, automatically placing Will up for eviction. She then voted to evict Will from the house, destroying Chilltown’s Operation Double Date.

All’s fair in love, war, and Big Brother!

Drew and Diane (Big Brother 5)

Drew and Diane (Big Brother 5)

Drew Daniel and Diane Henry formed an adorable showmance during Big Brother 5. But when it came down to the Final 3, Drew stuck to the guy code and evicted his own girlfriend instead of his buddy Michael “Cowboy” Ellis.

A move like that would normally put him in the doghouse. But, in this case, it kept him in the Big Brother house, and he would go on to win the competition.

Lisa and Eric (Big Brother 3)

Lisa and Eric (Big Brother 3)

Fireman Eric Ouellette and bartender Lisa Donahue made a cute couple. But, at a certain point, no amount of cute can save you from eviction.

The pair were placed on the block in week three and it was tough to watch, as many people in the house seemed pretty broken up about it. A tie-breaking vote evicted Eric, but then something adorable happened.

America voted for Lisa to receive a Web chat with fans. Viewers (and Lisa, of course) rejoiced when Eric joined the chat and promised Lisa a San Francisco date.

Will and Shannon (Big Brother 2)

Will and Shannon (Big Brother 2)

Love makes you do crazy things. And showmances make you do even crazier things.

When Hardy Ames-Hill placed Dr. Will Kirby and Shannon on the eviction block together, tempers flared. Things got so heated that Shannon infamously used Hardy's toothbrush to scrub the BB2 toilet. Shannon was the third Houseguest evicted from Big Brother 2. Will, on the other hand, went on to win the season.
