Who Won Big Brother: Celebrity Edition?

Here's how the Final 2 shook out

Megan Vick

Marissa Jaret Winokur is the first-ever winner of American Big Brother: Celebrity Edition!

After dominating the entire game with Ross Mathews, Marissa pulled it out over him after a tough jury inquisition where they had to reveal their worst lie and biggest regret from their time in the house. Ross' regret was that he wasn't able to stay loyal to Brandi in the end, but Marissa maintained that she played a straightforward game and didn't regret even her toughest choices.

Ross won the first HoH after making a deal with Mark to throw it in favor of Ross, ensuring they'd both make it to the Final 4. Ross put up Ari and Omarosa on the block in the nomination ceremony and proceeded to make sure everyone knew that Omarosa was the real target. His assurances convinced Ari to extend to him a Final 2 deal, which basically ensured that he would make it to the end. Ross then also won the POV and locked Ari and Omarosa onto the block. Everyone followed the plan and kicked Omarosa to the curb.

Marissa won the final HoH in a nail-biting "Has It Out" comp though, putting her solely in charge of deciding who would go to the Final 2. She stayed true to the alliance she set when she first walked into the house and took Ross with her to the jury.
