Celebrity Big Brother U.S. Season 2 will come to a close on Wednesday night after three weeks of drama, revived friendships, backstabs and live feed secrets. The evening will present a jam-packed, extended episode that will feature a handful of evictions, as there can only be one Celebrity Big Brother winner.
Left in the house are former NFL player Ricky Williams, Olympian Lolo Jones, reality star and manager Dina Lohan, reality star Tamar Braxton and reality star Kandi Burruss. Williams is the current Head of Household (HoH), according to a Monday spoiler by Gold Derby.
The finale episode will also offer another prize: the title of America’s favorite houseguests. This houseguest was hand-selected by American viewers. The favorite houseguest can also be the winner of Celebrity Big Brother.
The finale of Celebrity Big Brother will premiere Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET. A regular season of Big Brother is scheduled to air this summer. A premiere date has not yet been announced.

The finale episode began with a recap of Williams’s HoH win. After his victory, Williams nominated Lohan and Burruss for eviciton. The pre-taped Veto Competition then showed a strategy-based, heist competition. The remaining houseguests were asked to “steal items from a museum” without setting off a lazar alarm system. Jones won the veto, and joked “she should have” because she had “broken into her exes house a lot of times.”
Jones did not use the Veto. In her pre-eviction speech, Burruss told Braxton she’s glad the pair reconnected and overcame issues that had previously formed between the two in the music industry. Lohan noted Burruss has been her “wing girl” in her own emotional speech. She commented on things she loves about all of the remaining houseguests through tears.
The original vote, cast by Braxton and Jones, was a 1-1 tie. HoH Williams broke the vote by deciding to evict Burruss.
Newsweek will continue to update this post with the winner and other spoilers from the live event.
