Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Who Won?

by at .

We reached the conclusion of Celebrity Big Brother Season 1 last night, but which celebrity secured the win?

After a season that found much of the houseguests against one another, only one person could win. 

We picked up with the penultimate Head of Household competition, and you could tell Ross knew he needed to win.

Omarosa wanted him out of the house, and it was coming down to who would strike first. 

With that, Ross continued to be relentless and secured the HOH win. Omarosa knew she was the target, so she tried to fight to get the target put on someone else. 

However, Ross won the veto, and it effectively sealed Omarosa's fate. Ross had promised Ariadna that he would not send her packing at this stage of the game. 

He also had a deal with Mark that he would not put him on the block. That meant Marissa would have to be the other person if Ross did not win. 

Omarosa Is Fierce

Could anyone really imagine Ross turning on Marissa at this stage of the game? Not really. 

As such, Ross kept the nominations the same, and Omarosa was evicted by a vote of 2-0. 

Yes, Lady O departed the game in fifth place, but that gave her a lot of pull with the jury as she went on a mission to make sure Ross did not win the game. 

We then made our way to the final HOH competition of the season, and it gave the lucky victor the most important power yet: Instantly evicting two houseguests to leave us with our final two.

It was a shocker for sure because Marissa has been speaking of winning competitions all season long, but she never really managed to secure a win. 

Until now. 

Marissa stuck to her guns and took Ross with her to the Final Two. That meant Ari and Mark were let go from the game. 

The Jury Votes:

  • Mark votes: Ross
  • Ari votes: Marissa
  • Omarosa votes: Marissa
  • James votes: Marissa
  • Brandi votes: Ross
  • Metta votes: Ross
  • Shannon votes: Marissa
  • Keshia votes: Marissa
  • Chuck votes: Marissa 

That meant Marissa was the winner of Celebrity Big Brother Season 1!

Yes, it was a bizarre turnout and showed that there was a bitter jury at play. Ross played the better game, but he cut too many people close to him and let them go out on bad terms. 

Elsewhere, Ross won America's Favorite Houseguest. 

What did you think of the result?
