Expect the expected. On Wednesday night’s finale of Big Brother 12, one thing is for sure: a Brigade member will win the $500,000 grand prize.
Enzo’s Day 2 brainstorm idea of an all male four-person alliance paid off. With three Brigade members -Enzo, Lane and Hayden-in the Big Brother 12 finals, Meow Meow may as well have been named the Brains of the whole operation (actually that distinction went to Matt, but the self-described diabolical genius was ousted weeks ago).
Some Big Brother fans may even consider Enzo to be a floater, but he was actually one of the smartest players in the house. He has won nary a competition- was never Head of Household and he only won a Power of Veto in the nick of time to save his own butt. But when it counted most- the 3-part final HOH competition, Enzo failed. This could very well cost him the game.
Lane and Hayden, the Brigade powerhouses, have each won a part of the final HOH. The final part of the HOH will play out during Wednesday night’s 2-hour live finale. Whoever wins will choose who they want to bring to the final 2 with them. If Hayden wins, he will likely bring Lane, but if it’s the other way around, Big Brother’s resident kitty cat may still have a chance.
Why? Because while Hayden is considered to be the strongest player in the house-not making too many waves but winning a ton of comps- he will likely win against anyone he goes up against. Since Lane is his BFF in the house, he would likely take him along for the ride, guaranteeing his boy will get at least the $50K prize for second place.
But if Lane wins the HOH, he’d have a better shot at winning the $500,000 if he takes Enzo to the finals. Enzo’s lack of competition wins will hurt him if it’s up to some of the jury members. People like Rachel and Brendon would probably make an example of him- they were all about the wins. So a smart Lane would take Enzo, as he would most likely never beat Hayden.
But there’s enough good guy in Lane to make me think he won’t do that. Hayden is by far the most deserving player this season, so to see him miss out on being in front of the jury would be an epic shame.
While all of the ousted Big Brother 12 houseguests will return for finale night, The Big Brother 12 jury will consist of Rachel, Brendon, Britney, Kathy, Matt , Ragan and the final ousted Brigade member.
Other highlights of the finale will undoubtedly include the reveal of Ragan as the second saboteur (he earned $20K for that 2 week stint), the big Brigade reveal (unless Matt or Brit broke the rules and already told the other jury members about it) and the winner of the America’s Vote for Favorite Houseguest (I could see this going to Enzo).
The finale of Big Brother 12 will air on Wednesday, September 15th at 9:00 PM ET/PT on CBS.
