Ross Mathews was the favorite to win entering into the finale– at least according to TVLine’s absolutely precise, totally main polling system– so nobody was shocked when he scored the very first triumph of the night, becoming the brand-new Head of Home. Like many things on Big Brother, Ross’ brand-new title featured a cost: He needed to assure not to force out Mark McGrath, who basically handed him the HOH title by dropping out of the competition early.His attempt at discretion was right away warded off by Omarosa– of course she can read lips!– but Ross got his revenge when he put her up for eviction against Ariadna, with whom he secretly formed a final-two alliance.

Fortunately, Marissa’s panic paid off in the end, as her triumph offered her the power to send out two more players home. With tears in her eyes, she validated everyone’s suspicions by revealing that Ross would be joining her in the final two.SECOND AND THIRD
