Wednesday's 90-minute season finale began with only three players remaining in the house: Adam
After Rachel won the final, three-part head of household competition, she voted to evict Adam, making him the seventh and final member of the jury.
The jury, which also included previous evictees Brendon
, Jeff, Shelly
, then grilled Rachel and Porsche about why they should win the $500,000 grand prize. Rachel, a Season 12 veteran who returned to play the game as part of this season's "dynamic duos" twist, argued that she fought her way through the summer despite being one of the biggest targets in the game.
Porsche, meanwhile, reasoned that her gameplay was just as impressive as Rachel's, but that she was more respectful to her fellow houseguests than Rachel.

Ultimately, when the votes were counted, Rachel was crowned the winner in a 4-3 vote. (Porsche, who earned $50,000 as the runner-up, earned votes from her alliance members Daniele and Kalia as well as Adam.)
Jeff was also voted America's favorite player and earned $25,000.
CBS renewed Big Brother
for a fourteenth season on Wednesday. It will air next summer.
