On Wednesday night, the super fan beat the former winner and took home the Big Brother 14 prize. Yes, Ian Terry was crowned the winner of Big Brother, taking home the $500,000. Dan Gheesling walks away with the $50,000 second-place prize.
Earlier in the night, we got to see the end of the first round of the final Head of Household. We saw that Dan asked both Ian and Danielle to throw it (separately of course) and they both obliged. Dan won the first round and moved on to the final round.
In the second round, it was Ian vs. Danielle. And in case Danielle couldn’t pull off the win, Dan had to come up with a plan. He had to keep Ian thinking they’re Final 2 deal is solid while having Danielle to ruffle his feathers. They basically need Ian to throw the final HoH so Dan can win and take Danielle to the Final 2 instead of Ian.
We’re about to find out who won Big Brother 14 as the Jury is nearly set and will soon cast their votes. Before we get to the voting we’ll have to wait through the final Head of Household competition. Two of the three portions have already played out so we’ll be watching just the third part live before moving on to the jury and votes.
While we wait I wanted to give a BIG thanks to all of our readers this summer. Thanks for joining us each day to discuss what was going on in the house and a special thanks to everyone who signed up for the Live Feeds through our links and banners. All of you make this site possible and it’d be nothing without you. Okay, now on to the winner.
We learn that yes, Dan convinced both Danielle and Ian to drop during the first round. Ian agreed to this minutes before the live eviction as part of his deal to evict Shane rather than Ian. He then talks Danielle in to doing the same.
Big Brother 14 – Final HoH: Round 1
Big Brother 14 – Final HoH: Round 2
We finally get some time with the Jury. This deliberation will be fun. No big surprises here. Jenn is very pro-Dan while Joe and Frank are pushing hard against Dan. From their comments it sounds like Dan would do better against Danielle, but he may be in big trouble against Ian.
Now on to the live portion of the show. The winner of round 3 will decide who is the final evicted HG and who moves on to the Final 2. Lots of pressure here.
Big Brother 14 – Final HoH: Round 3 – Dan vs. Ian
- Round 1: Both get it right.
- Round 2: Both get it right.
- Round 3: Ian gets it right.
- Round 4: Ian gets it right.
- Round 5: Ian gets it right.
- That’s it. Ian wins the round.
Ian wins the final HoH! He’ll get to decide whether to take Dan or Danielle to the Final 2.
Big Brother 14 – Final Eviction
- Ian decides to evict Danielle.
After the jury interrogates the Final 2 HGs they each get to place their votes. It takes at least 4 out of 7 votes to win the big prize.
Big Brother 14 – Jury Votes
It all comes down to this. Tonight on Big Brother the season 14 winner will be crowned. Either Dan, Danielle, or Ian will win over the jury and be awarded a half-million dollar prize. I’ve already taken a detailed look at who I think will end up in the Final 2 and who has the best shot at the money, so I’ll skip that here, but vote for who you think will win.
Tonight’s show will last a full 90-minutes and start at 9:30PM ET/PT after the premiere of Survivor Philippines. Did you know we’ve got a Survivor fansite too? Join our Survivor Facebook and Twitter groups so you can get those updates and discussions all season. As part of tonight’s Big Brother finale we’ll get to watch the rest of the first part of the final HoH, the second round, and then third round will play out live.
Once the Final 2 HGs have been decided they’ll present their cases to the Jury and vie for the four votes needed to win. As for the Jurors we’ll get to watch their prerecorded deliberations from earlier this week back at the Jury House. Those can usually get pretty heated so I’d expect some sparks to fly. Once we get better insight from that debate it should help shape our expectations for tonight’s vote.
Today is the big day for Big Brother 14. We’re about to find out who wins a half-million dollars, who gets $50K, and who gets their stipend. Let’s take a look.
From what we’ve seen on the Live Feeds I think it’s safe to go ahead and predict who gets zilch right off the bat: Danielle. Until just the other day I thought we’d see Dan take his player on to the end, but private camtalk moments have revealed another plan. It looks like Dan may throw tonight’s third round to Ian and let him be the one to cut her loose. Danielle has spent the past few days making life unpleasant for Ian and he does not seem eager to return that favor by rewarding her with even the smaller prize.
With that in mind we can move on to the jury vote scenarios featuring Ian facing off against Dan. Assuming Danielle is the 7th juror, she’ll join Ashley, Britney, Joe, Frank, Jenn, and Shane as the BB14 HGs. A few days ago I did a quick back of the napkin analysis and figured Dan would knock it out of the park against either competitor, but upon further review I’m not so sure of that anymore. I do concede that I’ve weighed in heavier on the emotional/personal voting than strategic in my second analysis. When I look at things based on gameplay I was giving most of the votes to Dan, but we’ve seen everything while they’ve only had a portion of the events to take in to consideration.
It’s time to finish off the season’s Top 10 events from Big Brother 14. We ran through the first half of the best moments yesterday so we’re back with the rest of the list. Let’s get right to it picking up at number five.
#5: Double Your Evictions, Double Your Fun
I love double eviction nights. Love ‘em. It’s an entire week of Big Brother rolled up in to 43 minutes of airtime and none of it’s disappointing regardless of how it turns out. This season we got two double evictions and it was everything we could hope for it to be.
Both nights provided exciting results with big targets eliminated and backfired eviction attempts. The first one snagged Boogie and the second caught Frank after he dodged a bullet in the first double eviction night. Ian still doesn’t know how close he came to being sent packing after Dan renominated him before securing his safety with the Veto.
Unfortunately both nights ended with disappointing second evictions with Ashley the first time and Joe the second. At least we got the fun of Ashley’s failed eviction plea and Joe’s silent delivery of his own.
#4: Coaches Hit The Reset
I was not happy at all about this “twist” but after Willie got himself thrown out of the game it was obvious that something needed to be done to get the schedule back on track. The messiest part of the night was production’s decision to introduce the twist before the eviction rather than after. This took things from too few HGs to too many and completely negated Shane’s HoH while exposing his attempt to shock and blindside Frank that night. What a waste of what could have been an incredible moment in the season.
So the coaches entered the game and became HGs. Great. Last season all over again. Well thankfully it didn’t totally go that way as Janelle was immediately evicted and Boogie went out not far behind her with even Britney two weeks later. Now only Dan remains and is likely to head right on in to the final two. I’m hoping this gets Vets out of Grodner’s system, but I fear it won’t.
This is it. The last Big Brother 14 Live Feeds Highlights post. And I’m sorry to say, there were no knock-down drag-outs or melt-downs or much of anything else. Dan, Danielle and Ian are all pretty settled with what they think is going to happen. But really, only Dan seems to know exactly what is going to happen. Unless Ian wins the final round, then that, too is obvious. Read on to find out what we saw and heard yesterday on the Big Brother Live Feeds.
