It was a finale for the ages — specifically, the age in which lovably low rent reality television took over both our television sets and our lives. Dan, Danielle, and Ian all entered last night with dreams of dollar signs dancing in their heads. In the end, however, Danielle was in tears, Dan was in shock after being almost goose-egged by a still bitter jury, and Ian’s biggest, nerdiest fantasy had finally come true as the 21-year-old engineering student won the $500,000 and title of Big Brother 14 champion.
How were the three feeling the morning after? We called them up on the InsideTV Podcast to find out. And fireworks ensued when Dan told us that he would have taken Ian to the final two had he won the final HOH challenge. How did Danielle take that when we informed her of that fact a few minutes later? Not well. Not well at all. She had no idea until we told her! Her realization and response alone may just make this the best InsideTV Podcast EVER! Also: How caught off guard was Ian by Dan’s attack during their final pleas to the jury? Does Dan blame the jury for his loss? Would Danielle have taken Dan or Shane to the finals? And where is that grandfather cross necklace now? We ask the final three all that and more on this special Big Brother edition of the InsideTV Podcast.
