I don't think it was necessarily rigged.
I do think they should've made it perfectly clear that the final 2 couldn't win though.
It does seem rather shady that CBS had no mention of the rules at all on their site, and make it seem that everyone but Willie was eligible. but I should be used to that by now.
Everyone WAS eligible because we didn't know who the Final 2 were going to be until Finale night. But us live feeders have a glimpse into things and have an idea who it will be.
Its really the fault of how they do the finale now and how they have the final 3 in the house until the last night. They really need to change it back next year.
The format of the show changed in season 11 with the F3 left in the house during the vote. Prior to that there were only two in the house the last few days so it was easy to exclude them from the voting. The F3 has muddied the waters with voting. There really needs to be something official that states in the event one of the F2 gets the most votes the prize will go the one with the 2nd (or 3rd) highest number of votes. I searched the CBS site and could find nothing. I'm not saying that it isn't true that the F2 aren't eleigble to actually win the prize but the voters should be aware of it.
i actually have watched this show for years and never knew the final 2 werent eligible. Had I known the final 2 were NOT eligible, I would have tossed all of my votes to Britney instead of Ian.
I could swear it was either last year (year before?) that the 2nd place winner also won AC?
I think they rigged this to have an excuse to bring him back for All Stars. I do not believe for one minute that Frank was 3rd. I would guess it went Ian, Dan, Britney, Janelle and THEN Frank.
Thanks MF... I should have remembered that. I'm going to have to go back a couple years. I might be remembering wrong, but I never knew that Final 2 couldnt win. I'm a bit honked off that it wasnt clearly stated during voting.
Jeff won last year
Britney on BB12
Jeff again BB11
Keesha on BB10
James on BB9
I don't think there was one on BB8? Remind me someone
And Janelle BB7 ....which is when it started.
None of them were in the Final 2.
