TV Show: Big Brother 5

Week Nine: 'Horsemen' rule 'Big Brother 5'

With the final HOH Competition complete, 'Big Brother 5' now has its two finalists.

Two of the original Four Horsemen Alliance, Drew Daniels - the recent college graduate from Ohio - and Michael 'Cowboy' Ellis - the security guard from Oklahoma, will face the 'Big Brother 5' jury next Tuesday night to see who wins the grand prize of half a million dollars and who takes second place and $50,000 U.S.

In the last round of the final Head of Household Challenge, Drew beat Michael in a competition that involved the answers the current jury members gave to particular questions. Oddly, many of the questions and answers reflected negatively on Michael indicating that he might not have that much support amongst the 'Big Brother 5' jury. Over their four-year run on the series, the producers have been accused by fans and ex-players alike of coaching the cast and telling them what to say during their confessionals in the Diary Room by asking them leading questions as well as possibly manipulating the actual competitions themselves.

In the first two portions of the final Head of Household Competition, Drew won part one's endurance challenge and in part two, Michael defeated Diane Henry in a trivia contest involving a DNA strand and questions about the series itself.

As the final Head of Household, it was up to Drew to decide whom he would evict and who stay to face the 'Big Brother 5' jury with him. Drew cast his vote live on the show but both Michael and Diane had a chance to plead their case first.

"Drew, I know you got a tough decision tonight. We had a word since Day One and I know that and I know that you are close with her (Diane) so whatever decision, I love you. You are a brother to me," said Michael.

"Drew, I wish I had something great to say to you but I care about you more than anything in the world. You know that and whatever decision you make, I respect you. If you voted to evict me today I will still respect you. I would still care about you as much as I do. You are the reason why I am still here. I want you to know that. I want to thank you for that," Diane told Drew.

Drew was then instructed by host Julie Chen to stand up and make his selection known.

"This is obviously a very tough decision for me, I have to choose between a girlfriend and a best friend. This is definitely the hardest decision I have had to make in this house. I want you guys to know that this week I have had to keep both my words with you so right now it is going to shock one of you but I am sorry. I hope you understand this is just a game and this is just strategy," he said. "Right now, Diane, you and I had a talk last night and you told me about some things that if you and I were in the final two that scared me, in terms of numbers and people on your side in the jury so at this time, I choose to evict you, Diane."

As a tearful Diane exited the house, Drew explained that she had told him in a conversation she would get four out of the seven jury votes.

"I didn't say that to you," replied Diane as Drew hugged her goodbye. Viewers of the live 24/7 'Big Brother' Internet feeds witnessed Diane expressing that notion to Drew not last night but several days ago in the house.

"I am very shocked but I understand why he did it for strategy purposes, I guess. I don't know," Diane told Chen during her interview segment. Diane claimed again she had no recollection of making that statement to Drew in the house.

"Are you saying that he made it up?" asked Chen.

"No, I am thinking he just knew it. He is smarter than I am so he probably counted the numbers and knew what he was getting into," Diane answered.

Despite being evicted Diane had great hopes for her relationship with Drew outside of the 'Big Brother 5' house.

"He was very close to me and we want to do the same things and we want to go do them together," she said.

When asked by Chen if she would've done anything differently in the game, Diane who had made numerous enemies on the jury by paving the way for their evictions, Diane joked that she should have got Drew booted too. Diane was also disappointed with Drew's goodbye message to her.

On the 24/7 live Internet feeds after the show had concluded, Drew admitted to Michael that an agent from a twin casting agency made him aware of the opportunity to be on 'Big Brother 5' and he probably owes her 10 per cent of his winnings. Die-hard fans of the series have complained in the past that too many of the 'Big Brother' contestants aren't "everyday people" but amateur models and actors who have agents under their employ.

The finale of 'Big Brother 5' airs next Tuesday night on CBS during which the jury of evicted houseguests will vote on the winner.
