This season of Big Brother came to an end tonight in a two hour finale as Hayden Moss was crowned the winner of Big Brother 12, winning $500,000. He beat Lane Elenburg in a 4 to 3 vote. Lane took home $50,000 as the runner up. Enzo was the final House Guest evicted and became the seventh and final member of the Jury after Hayden won the third stage of the final Head of Household. It was a 3 to 3 tie before Enzo’s decisive vote. Choosing to go best player rather than holding a grudge, Enzo casted the winning vote for Hayden. Rachel, Brendan and Britney were Lane’s three votes.
Britney won America’s Choice (for being America’s favorite House Guest) and a cool check of $25,000.
Although Lane probably played a better social game, Hayden won more competitions and his social game was not far off from Lane’s. Lane’s answers to the jury (especially to Enzo’s question) probably did not help his chances either. The Brigade controlled the majority of the season and it was only fitting that a member of the Brigade won it all.
