The first winner of America’s Celebrity Big Brother has been crowned!
The final five houseguests — Marissa Jaret Winokur, Ross Mathews, Mark McGrath, Ariadna Guti├â┬⌐rrez and Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth — had to battle it out in a full week’s worth of game play on Sunday night.
The first competition of the night was an HOH skiing competition, which ended with Mark making a deal to throw the game to Ross. The E! personality put up Omarosa and Ariadna on the block, with the Apprentice alum as his clear target.
Ross’s plan came to fruition after he also won the final veto competition. He kept his noms the same and Ommy was sent home. Sry, girl — now get to work on that White House memoir!
The live final HOH competition between Ross, Ari, Mark and Marissa was an all out trivia battle that ultimately Marissa won. The Hairspray star chose to bring Ross, her house BFF, with her to the final two.
With only two left in the house, Julie Chen and the entire cast questioned Ross and Marissa on why they should win. They both had great arguments, as both played quite the game since day one.
So, who became the first-ever winner of Celebrity Big Brother?
It was… Marissa!
Here’s who voted for who:
The Broadway actress took home $250,000! (No, this ain’t for no stinking charity!) Don’t feel too bad for Ross, though — he was rightfully voted America’s Favorite Houseguest and won $25,000.
