Big Brother


Summer has officially ended, and while we're stoked for fall, we're not so stoked about the end of another season of Big Brother

So who just took home $500,000 and made history? Congrats to...Nicole Franzel

At the start of tonight's finale, it was newbie Paul against returnees Nicole and James. Paul then dominated the HOH competition, and sent James home. 

The jury was almost split, and we were fairly sure Paul had the win, but then it came down to none other than Da'Vonne's vote, and she picked Nicole. This means that Nicole is the first woman to ever win against a man in the final two, and good of a game as Paul played, she truly deserved it.

Nicole also wasn't the only winner of the night!

Not only did runner-up Paul walk away with $50,000, but there was a fan favorite prize to give out. The top three vote-getters included Victor, Natalie, and James (who won America's Favorite during his original season), and Victor ended up with the $25,000. 

While season 18 may be over, another Big Brother is just about to start, and this new edition of the show is seriously fan-centric. Viewers of Big Brother: Over the Top not only get to see everything live 24/7, but they will also get to vote for the winner.

Each week will consist of one regular episode followed by a live eviction ceremony on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, a weekday replay on weeknights, safety ceremonies on Friday and Saturday nights, live diary room sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays, and an evicted houseguest g&a with Julie Chen on Thursday afternoons. Fans will also get the chance to vote throughout the season to affect nominations, evictions, and twists. 

Big Brother: Over the Top premieres on CBS All Access next Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
