Another reality TV competition series wrapped up its season on Wednesday night, September 18. While "America's Got Talent" crowned its season 8 winner over at NBC, "Big Brother 15" picked its own champion on CBS.
GinaMarie Zimmerman, Spencer Clawson and Andy Herren were the last three remaining contestants after spending 90 days in the house. In the first part of the HoH competition which took place almost a week ago, they held on in the skater-inspired challenge. Spencer was out quickly and GinaMarie won in this challenge, but she choked on some glitter.
Spencer next was pitted against Andy for the second part of the last HoH competition called "Crab Grab", where they had to scale a wall and line up the houseguests' heads in the order they left the house. Andy completed it first and faced off GinaMarie in the third part.
In the final part of the HOH competition, they answered questions about the jury members. After eight questions, Andy won by 1 point. As the last HoH, he got to choose whom he would take to the final two and he went with GinaMarie.
The jury members then showed up to ask questions to the two finalists. When asked why she thought she deserved to win, GinaMarie choked up explaining that she needed the money. Andy, meanwhile, was being honest when admitting that he kept everyone in the back and apologizing to Jessie and others for keeping them in the dark about their evictions.
In their speeches, GinaMarie apologized if she offended everybody and begged for the jury members' votes, pointing out her colorful personality. Andy, on the other hand, claimed he had played a good game.
The votes were in and it was 7-2 in favor of Andy. He took home the $500,000 grand prize. Elissa Slater, meanwhile, won America's votes to get the $25,000, with Howard Overby and Judd Daugherty as the other top three vote getters.
