Big Brother: Over the Top: And the Winner Is...

It was a close one

Joyce Eng

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers about Thursday's Big Brother: Over the Top finale. Read at your own risk.]

The first winner of Big Brother: Over the Top was named on Thursday. Was The Inevitable Coronation of Jason complete? Or did America vote Morgan or Kryssie in the second biggest upset in less than a month?

Are you ready, Shane?


Well, too bad, because the winner is...

Jason came in second and Kryssie, whom none of the evicted houseguests voted for, finished in third.
Less than 20,000 votes separated Jason and Morgan in one of the closest votes in Big Brother history, according to Julie Chen.
Big Brother: Over the Top's Justin reveals why he became anti-social

Neeley, Whitney, Shane and Danielle revealed they voted for Jason. Cornbread, Alex, Monte, Scott and Shelby voted for Morgan. Justin didn't get to vote because no one hooked him up with the interwebs while he was in sequester the past two days. Asked by Julie who he would've voted for had he had the chance, he diplomatically said all three of them. So, Kryssie gets a hypothetical vote.

It's kind of awesome that a woman has beaten a guy for the second straight time, since that had never before happened in the Big Brother franchise until Nicole edged out Paul two months ago. Was Morgan's win an anti-Jason vote? Probably, but she still played a good game. It sucks for a BB superfan like Jason to come so close, but hopefully he can finally move out of his mom's basement now.
