AFTER 75 DAYS LOCKED AWAY FROM THE OUTSIDE WORLD, IAN, THE ENGINEERING STUDENT FROM PITTSBURGH, WAS CROWNED THE WINNER OF “BIG BROTHER” ON LAST NIGHT'S LIVE SEASON FINALE ON CBS
Frank Wins “America’s Favorite Player”
Ian Terry, the 21-year-old engineering student from Pittsburgh, Pa., who currently resides in New Orleans, La., won the BIG BROTHER grand prize of $500,000 during the LIVE season finale on Wednesday, Sept. 19, on CBS.
Last night, Dan and Ian faced off in the final Head of Household competition, where they had to guess how jurors answered questions. Ian answered the most questions correctly and became the season’s final HOH. After evicting Danielle, Dan and Ian faced the jury of the last seven evicted Houseguests (listed in order of eviction) – Ashley, Britney, Frank, Joe, Jenn, Shane and Danielle – to plead their case.
After each of the jury members had the chance to ask the finalists questions, they voted LIVE for the winner of BIG BROTHER. By a vote of 6 to 1, Ian won the competition.
In addition, viewers voted Frank as “America’s Favorite Player,” awarding him $25,000.
After the vote was revealed, BIG BROTHER winner Ian was met by his family and former housemates, and then interviewed by Julie Chen.
BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
