Big Brother 6 comes down to two members of the much maligned “The Friendship” alliance. While “The Friendship” does have its fans, the results of the three America’s Choice votes made it clear that “The Friendship” fans are in the minority. CBS could have had a ratings goldmine if Janelle Pierzina would have made it to the finale, as fans of both alliances would have tuned in to see the outcome. Would Janelle have been able to pick up enough votes to beat either Maggie Ausburn or Ivette Corredero?
While Janelle would almost certainly have lost a jury vote to Maggie, there was a good chance that April and her partner Jennifer could have been swayed to vote for Janelle over Ivette. Sadly, Big Brother fans will not get to find out if Janelle could have pulled off a miracle victory over “The Friendship.” The jury will have to decide between Maggie and Ivette. While the dramatic showdown is off, viewers should still tune in to see the jury members grill Maggie and Ivette. While we don’t want to give away too much, live feed watchers at Jokers Updates have reported that Ivette and Maggie apparently received a brutal bashing from the jury.
Who will ultimately take home the $500,000? James and Beau will likely vote for Ivette, while Jennifer and April will likely vote for Maggie. How Janelle, Howie, and Rachel will vote is not as easy to predict. Our prediction is that they will probably wind up voting for Ivette, because they might perceive her as the stronger player. They also might be inclined to vote against Maggie because of how much they dislike her secret partner Eric. However, the vote could really go either way.
Even though either Maggie or Ivette will ultimately walk away with the money, it is likely that Janelle and Kaysar will be the two biggest winners of Big Brother 6. Because of their enormous popularity, Janelle and Kaysar will be sought after for speaking engagements, commercials, modeling work, and even acting opportunities. Kaysar has already been tapped to appear on a soap opera, and Janelle is certain to get many lucrative offers to pose for various magazines. They both stand to make a lot more money than the half-million dollar prize the Big Brother 6 winner will take home. The Big Brother finale airs on Tuesday, September 20, 2005 at 9P.M. ET on CBS.
