It is Celebrity Big Brother finale day, which can only mean one thing: someone is about to walk away $250,000 richer. Either Ross Mathews, Omarosa, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Mark McGrath, or Ariadna Gutierrez will be crowned the first ever US Celebrity Big Brother winner.
With an unpredictable jury, we really don’t know who will win Celebrity Big Brother. However, some players have a better shot at winning the game than others. So who has the best chance to win Celebrity Big Brother? Let’s rank from least likely to win to most likely to win.
Omarosa is only last on this list because she’s leaving in fifth place tonight. If she had somehow won the Power of Veto, Omarosa had a decent chance of winning the game. However, the Celebrity Big Brother players might have felt it was bad for their image to vote Omarosa the winner and had her represent their season. So it would have been a tough call, and close vote if she made it to the end, but now there is no way Omarosa will see the final chairs.
Mark has played a solid coaster game. It got him this far, and sometimes that is all you need to do to win Big Brother. Unfortunately, this isn’t one of those seasons. We have an image conscious group of jurors. Their fans and fans of Big Brother would basically have the biggest fit if Mark beats almost anyone in the finals. He just hasn’t done enough to really deserve a win.
Marissa Jaret Winokur
Marissa had a lot potential at the start of Celebrity Big Brother, but that died after the first week. Marissa has been too concerned with making friends and her image. She hasn’t played ruthless enough, or won many competitions. Marissa has just been the Robin to Ross’s Batman. And like Robin knows, you can’t be the star if you’re too concerned with being the sidekick. Marissa could only possibly beat Mark in the end. In a Mark and Marissa final two scenario, it’s basically a toss-up of who the jury believe did slightly more in the game.
Ariadna will probably go out in fourth place, unless she wins the final Head of Household competition. Everyone knows that they have no chance to beat Ari in the finals. She’s played a pretty good game and she’s very likable–a deadly combination in any Big Brother season. It would be great to see someone well liked by the houseguests and fans win, since that’s so rare on Big Brother, but we just don’t know if she’ll be able to pull out that final win that she needs to go to the end.
We know Brandi Glanville and Shannon Elizabeth both declared that they would not vote for Ross in the end. We hope that’s not true, because it would make both of them look a little silly and petty if they vote Mark or Marissa over Ross in the finals. He is almost guaranteed to be one of the final two players, since everyone but Omarosa has agreed to take him to the end. Even without those promises, we believe Ross will win the final HOH and take Mark to the end.
Even if Brandi and Shannon stick to their promises about not voting for Ross, he’s still likely to have Chuck Liddell, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Metta World Peace, Ariadna Gutierrez, Marissa, and Omarosa’s votes. It would be a shock if Ross doesn’t win, unless he’s sitting next to Ari, but stranger things have happened on Big Brother.
