Big Brother 15 Finale Speculation: Who Deserves To Win?
Another season of Big Brother draws to a close this Wednesday night. At the start of the season, if you had told me that the final three would be Andy, Spencer and GinaMarie, I'm not sure I would have believed it. None of them hit the ground running, as GinaMarie joined the showmance club, pairing up with Nick (kind of). Spencer secured himself a spot in an alliance that had potential, though he seemed more likely to provide more vote-support than anything in the Moving Company. And Andy struck me as the ultimate floater, which he did sort of turn out to be. So how did these three make it to the end? They were smart enough to lock arms near the end and secure themselves the strength in numbers when it mattered the most. They aren't my personal picks for the Top 3. Not by a stretch. But they didn't get there by accident.
So, who deserves to win? I'm of the mindset that whoever actually wins deserves to win. The whole point of Big Brother is to stay in the house as long as possible and get to the Final 2 next to someone the jury wants to see win less than you. So it doesn't matter who we want to win. Who will win is whoever got to the Final 2 and managed to secure more than half of the votes from the jury. Predicting that is nearly impossible. We think we can guess how people will vote, but the jury has surprised us in the past. I wouldn't have predicted that last season's jury would've been so unappreciative of Dan's efforts to get to the end. I thought at least some of the jury would have thrown him a vote for the work Dan put into securing himself a spot in the Final 2. Alas, they went with the person who burned them less. Or maybe they just didn't want to see a veteran houseguest win a second time. Who knows? It doesn't matter. If Dan had "deserved" to win, he would have.
With the above said, there are reasons why all three of the Top Three houseguests could win this season of Big Brother. Each of their games have merit, and there's a chance any one of them could be $500,000 richer come Wednesday night. Let's look at the arguments to be made for why each deserves the grand prize.
GinaMarie - On Head of Household wins, GM's in line with Andy with two, though Andy has a couple of Veto wins on her so he's ahead there. And really, two HoH's isn't really enough to warrant competition credit, though it does exclude her from being carried to the end. You really only need to win one HoH to avoid being branded a weak player. But GM's biggest strength in the game is her loyalty. She stuck by the people she was loyal to pretty firmly, only wavering the week Aaryn went home, which is when she was at risk of being nominated. That's also when the Exterminators formed. She was devoutly loyal to the Exterminators to the end. If she gets to the Final 2, GM's best bet is to argue that she got to the end being loyal, and she's proof that you can make the Final 2 without back-stabbing. This will be especially crucial as an argument if she's sitting next to Andy, who played a very different game.
We'll look at Andy's game after the jump...
