CBS's 'Big Brother' Hayden outlasts all wins 12th season


After living in the BIG BROTHER house for 75 days, Hayden emerged triumphant last night as the show’s grand prize winner of $500,000.  Lane will receive $50,000 as the second place winner.

Last night, Hayden and Lane squared off for the final HOH title where they had to guess how jurors answered questions about the season. Hayden answered the most questions correctly and became the final HOH. After voting out Enzo, Hayden and Lane faced the Jury consisting of the last seven evicted Houseguests (listed in order of eviction): Rachel, Kathy, Matt, Brendon, Ragan, Britney and Enzo in the finals.

After each of the six jury members had the chance to ask the finalists questions, they voted live for who they wanted to win. By a vote of 4 to 3, Hayden, the 24-year-old Arizona State University Student from Tempe, Arizona became the grand-prize winner of $500,000. In addition, viewers voted for their favorite player and awarded $25,000 to Britney.

After the vote was revealed, BIG BROTHER winner Hayden was met by family and former housemates and then interviewed by Julie Chen.
