Jun wins Big Brother 4 with 6 to 1 vote.
After 82 days in the house, Jun Song won Big Brother 4, beating Alison Irwin with six votes to Alison’s single vote. After watching tapes of the entire season, including Jun and Alison’s diary room and behind-their-backs insults, the jury members gave the two finalists possibly the most chilly and unfriendly reaction in the history of reality TV wins; no one congratulated them or even clapped. Revealing their votes, most, like Dana, said they “lost a lot of respect” for both players, while Justin said “he would ‘rather get stabbed in the front than the back.'” Nathan cast the only vote for Alison.
