JORDAN WINS "BIG BROTHER" ON THE 11TH SEASON'S TWO HOUR FINALE
America Votes For Jordan To Win and Then Names Jeff as "America's Favorite Houseguest"
After living in the BIG BROTHER house for 73 days, Jordan emerged triumphant last night as the show's grand prize winner of $500,000. Natalie will receive $50,000 as the second place winner.
Last night, Jordan won the final HOH competition and decided to vote out Kevin, ensuring that she would go head to head with Natalie in the finals. In the end, the two faced a jury consisting of the last six evicted Houseguests (listed in order of eviction): Jessie, Lydia, Russell, Jeff, Michele and Kevin. In addition, BIG BROTHER viewers were granted a special "America's Vote," in which they could get to have a say in the final decision.
After each of the six jury members had the chance to ask the finalists questions, they voted live for who they wanted to win. By a vote of 5 to 2, Jordan, the 22-year-old waitress from Matthews, N.C. became the grand-prize winner of $500,000. In addition, a second viewer vote for their favorite Houseguest awarded $25,000 to Jeff.
After the vote was revealed, BIG BROTHER winner Jordan, was met by family and former housemates and then interviewed by Julie Chen.
