Backstabbing, shocking twists and a never-ending thirst for power.

Big Brother and Game of Thrones have a lot in common.

If the Big Brother 17 cast were Game of Thrones characters, who would they be?

The Iron Throne wouldn't seem entirely out of place if given to Big Brother's Head of Household. Trial by combat seems like a reasonable way to let nominees battle for the Power of Veto. There are many similarities between the two shows including the Houseguests and characters.

If the Big Brother 17 Houseguests were Game of Thrones characters here's who they would be:

Audrey - Margaery Tyrell

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Willing to do whatever it takes. Not as clever as she thinks. Her own words get her in the most trouble.

 

Austin - Gregor Clegane

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Isn't it obvious?

 

Becky - Oberyn Martell

Both have experience with severe head trauma.

 

Clay - Khal Drogo

Is the muscle behind a power couple, but his better half now outranks him.

 

Da'Vonne - Ellaria Sand

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Outspoken and not afraid to work against leadership, but sometimes the majority wins.

 

Jace - Joffrey Baratheon

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Loud and demanding. Not as well-liked as he thought. Didn't end well.

 

Jackie - Catelyn Stark

Lost her longtime partner. Faces a difficult battle. Needs allies.

 

James - Eddard 'Ned' Stark

Held power early. Is well-liked, but it may cost him his head.

 

Jason - Tormund Giantsbane

Only chance at survival is to join sides with sworn enemies. His people are in danger.

 

Jeff - Jon Snow

Cliff Lipson/CBS, HBO

Doesn't know who Head of Household is. He knows nothing.

 

John - Samwell Tarly

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Keeps surviving to the surprise of many. More skilled than it appears.

 

Liz/Julia - Arya and Sansa Stark

Bill Inoshita/CBS, HBO, HBO

Working hard to survive individually. If they are able to join together they could become a force.

 

Meg - Podrick Payne

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Not seen as a threat and so far hasn't proven to be one.

 

Shelli - Cersei Lannister

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Is used to having power, but prefers to have others do the heavy lifting and not get her hands dirty. Shame.

 

Steve - Jorah Mormont

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

Knows what he wants, but needs a better social game to get it.

 

Vanessa - Tyrion Lannister

Sonja Flemming/CBS, HBO

May be the smartest of them all. Every move is strategic. Has great influence.

 

Julie Chen - Lord Varys

Hears all of the whispers.
