Big Brother 12 Winner

If the last two episodes of filler were not enough for you, tonight we have a full two hours of additional filler. Hayden and Lane will square off against each other for the title of the final HOH of the season, and then the winner will choose whether to take the other one to the end or go with Enzo.

Hayden and Lane have a final two deal, but they don’t trust each other. Enzo, meanwhile, is upset that he made the alliance and somebody else is going to win. Well, he could have tried harder at the competitions. That said, the houseguests are focusing on how Enzo only won one competition, so because of that he can’t win. Apparently, none of them have ever heard of Dr. Will. He didn’t win anything, nor did he want to, until such time as he needed to win.

Unlike Kathy, who was still whining a week later, Ragan is making an effort to forgive Matt. Britney reveals the alliance to the rest of the jury. Somehow, they are surprised. So Ragan is once again mad at Matt. Matt, meanwhile, tries to take credit for the alliance. He still believes he’s a Big Brother mastermind. Seems he missed the memo he isn’t.

Rachel argues the Brigade got lucky. Lucky the rest of the house consisted of idiots. Britney and Ragan argue the alliance was brilliant, and nobody else had any power. Britney says that Enzo’s social game may warrant the win. Rachel gives him credit as well, although she’s not happy about it. Hayden gets support for his ability to win competitions, and Kathy thinks he’s brilliant. Rachel believes Lane played the best game, but Ragan argues that just being a nice guy doesn’t cut it. The question of bold moves comes up. There really is no answer to this question. What, alliance on day two? That’s about it. Otherwise, it was pretty well just played safe, but that can be said about the house as a whole, all season long, with the predictable nominations week after week after week.

The final part of the final HOH competition consists of questions asked to the jury.

Rachel: My favorite moment in the house was falling in love with Brendon.
Both are correct.

Kathy: The most shocking moment in the house was when Rachel returned for the 24 hours.
Both are correct.

Matt: The fatal error I made in the house was throwing my last HOH competition.
Both are correct.

Brendon: The moment in the house that I’m afraid to have my friends and family see is when I went off on Britney and Ragan in the hammock.
Both are correct.

Ragan: The houseguest who I think needs a reality check the most is Brendon because he was willing to give his waitress a half a million dollar tip. (As if Ragan himself is not due for a reality check.)
Both are incorrect.

Britney: The funniest moment in the house this summer was Rachel and Ragan’s fight.
Both are incorrect.

Tied at 4 after 6 questions. Time for a tiebreaker. Is this really what the season comes down to? In part 1 of the final HOH competition, how many times did Big Brother slam them into the walls? Hayden guesses 91; Lane guesses 55. Neither is close. The correct answer is 250. Hayden wins HOH.

With that, Hayden has the power to choose who he wants to take with him to the final two. Enzo has been evicted from the Big Brother house. I would argue he was the bigger threat, having been the key to the alliance.

Britney wants to see anybody but Lane. Matt thinks Enzo just got evicted, though he doesn’t really care. They get their wishes.

They have come up with six questions to ask to the houseguests. Since he was not involved in this process, Enzo will be able to ask his own question after they’re done.

Lane’s first question is how they can vote for him seeing as he hasn’t won much. He doesn’t really have an answer that would be useful.

The first question for Hayden is which two non-Brigade members he would like to see in the final two. Brendon and Britney.

Would Lane have chosen Britney or a Brigade member, if he had to do so? He again doesn’t really answer, but Julie forces him to say a Brigade member.

Did Hayden play a better social game? He played similarly… but his competitions separated them. Smooth answer.

What was Lane’s most significant contribution to the Brigade? Making them laugh and watching after them.

Does Hayden regret anything he may have said behind somebody’s back? If so, what? What a stupid question. Hayden acknowledges that he’s said things, but he won’t get into specifics.

Enzo asks Lane whether he was really going to take him to the final two. Kinda sorta maybe. Either way, he didn’t think he could win.

Rachel votes based on social game. Not one to think on his own, Brendon follows suit. Kathy obviously votes for Hayden. Matt votes for the person most instrumental in his demise (other than himself). Ragan’s voting strategy is murky. Britney will obviously vote for Lane. Enzo gets in one last joke, saying he’s deciding between who needs a haircut and who needs a shave.

The first four evicted houseguests have seen the whole show, and now they’re ready to share their opinions before we can proceed with the results. Monet does not apologize for trashing Rachel, nor does she believe she was inaccurate. Not that it was a secret, but Hayden and Kristen had a showmance. Unsurprisingly, her boyfriend has dropped her after what happened on the show. Hayden invites her out for some pizza. Andrew was shocked by Enzo being the leader of the Brigade (so is Matt). He also has news that Matt’s wife is healthy, which the final three are hearing for the first time, but they take it a lot better than some of the others. Annie says that this game was all Enzo. Britney is happy to learn that Lane would have brought her to the finals. Brendon hopes to get Rachel away from Vegas, and Britney is disgusted.

One last order of business before we find out who wins. The saboteur twist fell on its face. Twice. Annie reveals that nobody in the house knew each other, in spite of the lifelong friends sabotage message. Now it’s time for the unveiling of the second one. Britney suspects Matt. Enzo goes with Kathy or Matt. Lane says Kathy, Matt, or Enzo. All wrong. Nobody suspected Ragan.

Finally, the results are in.

Rachel: Lane
Kathy: Hayden
Matt: Hayden
Brendon: Lane
Ragan: Hayden
Britney: Lane
Enzo: Hayden

By a vote of 4-3, Hayden Moss is the Big Brother 12 winner. Well deserved, although I think he had good reason to fear Enzo. Brendon and Rachel, with their one brain to share, nearly derailed him, though.

The winner of America’s vote for the $25,000 prize for favorite houseguest is Britney.

It may seem a little early to announce this, but Big Brother 13 has been confirmed for next summer.
