When Big Brother came down to returning player Dan Gheesling, Danielle Murphree and Ian Terry on Wednesday's show, most fans knew that Dan would at least creep to the top two, with all bets being off after that, considering the ultimate decision would be handed over to the jury members, comprised of the former contestants … not all of whom felt so keen about big man on campus Dan.

After Ian won the competition and chose to honor his deal with Dan and vote off Danielle, the members of the jury house got to make the decision. Both Dan and Ian had little to hide at that point, and the arguments were simple. Ian argued that he had played the honest game and aced a lot of the competitions fair and square.

The gist of what it came down to for Dan, on the other hand, was that he had gotten so far by upholding the spirit of Big Brother — he had done what he had to do to survive. In the end, it didn't matter, however, and the jury voted for Ian by a 6-1 margin, awarding him the $500K grand prize and proving that nice guys don't always finish last.

In a salute to the fans, Frank Eudy, was selected at the very end of the show as America's Favorite Houseguest, being awarded $25K himself.
