It's been one wild summer, to say the
least. We started with four cliques, threw a few wrenches into some
plans, threw a microphone into a pool, and 73 days later, we arrive with
one waitress from North Carolina against one graphic designer from
California... against one tae kwon do champion from Arizona. In two
hours, one of them will be half a million dollars richer.
As we flash back, we reveal the final
matchup: Jordan versus Kevin. Natalie is not in the equation. Kevin
feels confident that he'll be taken to the final two. Natalie's only
focus is to stay in their head. She hopes that either one of them will
take her. Natalie's beginning to sense that Kevin might not take her to
the end. In the end, she has a lot of friends on the jury.
"Natalie, please go to the Diary
And while Natalie's there, Jordan and
Kevin discuss. Kevin says that he'd pick Jordan to be in the final 2.
Jordan keeps telling Kevin that he's a surefire final 2. But she'd
rather take Natalie.
While Kevin lies on the hammock, Natalie
says that she hopes that Jordan keeps in contact with her. Jordan starts
right now by telling Natalie everything Kevin told her.
Kevin questions his plan to keep Jordan.
Natalie says that he has two guaranteed votes: Lydia and Michele. Kevin
feels like that he is playing for second, even though he's won more than
Going live to the living room for a
moment, Kevin says that Big Brother has taught him to have a little more
confidence in himself. Natalie says she'll miss 12 other people. Jordan
says that this was a learning experience in patience and independence.
Meanwhile, in the jury, Michele arrives
with new information of Natalie's proposal. Jury after seeing the
sequester reel decide... you know what, I'll vote for Julie's baby to
win BB11 before I vote for Natalie.
They convene for a final debate on who
should win the big prize. The three are not strong players, but they
took backroads to the final three. Kevin & Natalie played a lot better
than Jordan, but Jordan made all the right moves. Jordan's the nicest
girl in the house, but her power play move: attaching herself to Jeff.
As for Natalie... she's a little sister, but within that, she thought
she was better off losing everything and attaching herself to the
biggest targets of the week. She didn't do anything to deserve the
position she was put in. And Michele... is just bitter.

TIE) Including tiebreaker votes, how many
total votes to evict have been cast so far this season?
The actual retail price.... is... 51!
Jordan is the final HOH and will compete for $500,000! The question
now... who will she take with her to the final vote?
Natalie's case... basically, she says
that she stayed true and loyal to her, and that she's grateful for her
friendship. Kevin just begs to keep him in the house, saying that they
never went after each other.
Jordan's final vote... is... KEVIN.
Jordan made a smart move; in not picking Kevin, she might've just won
herself Big Brother. At this point, he has no regrets. Kevin leaves with
$10,626. Most important in determining who wins this game: who actually
played the game.
So it'll be Natalie vs. Jordan in the
final vote. But first, the jury will have one last chance to address the
Russell starts... Jordan, what was your
strategy before you came into the house and how did it change? Jordan
said that she was going to lay low and not trust anyone. Then she
started trusting everyone, and then the fights began. So she wanted to
be herself and see how far that got her.
Lydia asks who Natalie thought was the
biggest threat. Lydia, because she had a strong alliance with Jessie.
Jeff asks other than aligning with him,
what was Jordan's best move? Getting rid of Kevin, because he got rid of
Michele's question: "Were you hoping that
your engagement news would sway the jury?" Natalie says that she did get
engaged, because she was very proud of it.
Jessie's question: "Why does Jordan
deserve to beat Natalie?" Everyone thought that she wasn't a strong
competitor. But in the end, she didn't need anyone to get her where she
Russell has one more question: Why does
Natalie deserve to win? Her strategy was to align herself to strong
players. By aligning herself with others, she put herself in a good
position to win the game.
And Kevin has one more question....
"Jordan, can you tell me what did you do better than Natalie?" She laid
low and was honest with her alliances. She's proven herself. She made
moves to further herself.
Closing arguments from the finalists...
Jordan: "Coming in Big Brother, I didn't
know what to expect. I just wanted to stay true to my alliances. I
wanted to be the harmless person. I wanted to lay under the radar. I'm
very proud of myself even if I win or not. I won an HOH and a Veto and
the two final rounds and I did it on my own. It shows that I'm a better
competitor. Nothing was ever personal."
Natalie: "I may have not won a lot of
competitions, but I felt like I didn't need to. He put me and my best
friends against each other in this house. I was making decisions and I
stayed true to my alliances. I never betrayed a single one of them. I
was so loyal to my alliances that I made myself a target. I think I got
vengeance for the people I was aligned to."
And after 73 days... it all comes down to
this. Remember, you are voting for a winner, the person you want to see
The votes are locked and the decision is
final. And now that that's out of the way, Braden, Laura, Ronnie, and
Casey are back to expose lies and settle scores.
First up, the "Square Root of All Evil".
What shocked him the most... Natalie lying about everything. First of
all.. Natalie's not 18. She's 24. Next, Casey said that the biggest
mistake was from Jeff, the whole Kevin/Natalie coming after Russell bit.
Braden was surprised about how "big pimpin'" Jessie was, "doin' it
But the topic of the night... Chima.
Laura was hurt about how Chima threw away the opportunity to be on the
show. She thought it was offensive. Ronnie's statement to Michele came
from that morning... and it's not even close to true. He does apologize
that. So much for being the Square Root of All Evil.
Jessie and Lydia were "platonic" in the
house... not according to Websters or the camera.
And where does the Jeff/Jordan
relationship go from here? "We'll see if she wins or not." DAMN! The
kicker.. she agrees.
And finally... the results. Remember, the
winner gets $500,000, and the runner-up gets $50,000. The vote to win is
America: JORDAN, after 11 million votes
By a final vote of 5-2, JORDAN LLOYD wins
Big Brother! She wins $500,000, for a final total of $501,726...
