I don’t know if the show is still going on the West Coast or not but, needless to say, I’m about to post who won Big Brother so consider this your SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t watched the show or checked social media yet.
Defying my expectations, Monte won the final HoH.
Defying my expectations once again, Monte evicted Turner and brought Taylor with him to the final two.
Now, to be honest, I thought Monte was going to win but I was wrong. Monte won a lot of challenges and he engineered a lot of evictions but, when it came time to make his case to the jury, he stumbled. He tried to argue that evicting Turner was the biggest move of his game.
For her part, Taylor played up the fact that she had survived despite being targeted from the moment she came into the House and she did a pretty good job of making it seem as if anything other than a Taylor victory would be a win for everything that was wrong with the world.
I predicted that Monte would still win.
I was wrong.
By a vote of 8-1, Taylor won Big Brother 24. Only Turner voted for Monte.
Taylor also went on to win America’s Favorite Player, which means she gets even more money and a cruise.
To be honest, the main takeaway I took from the finale is that Joseph appeared to be sincerely upset by the Taylor/Monte showmance. Personally, I think a cruise with Joseph would be more fun than a cruise with Monte.
Well, that’s another season of Big Brother in the books but fear not! I’m covering Survivor and The Amazing Race on this very site! And I’ll be back here for the next edition of Big Brother!
Congratulations to the winners and thanks for reading!
P.S. For the record, I think Monte’s biggest mistake was evicting Turner. He would have beaten Turner in the final two. Monte could probably argue that he had played a better game than Taylor but Taylor had a far more compelling personal narrative.
