Diane voted for Drew because he “made the best game move by putting me out.”
One of the final betrayals in the Big Brother 5 house was Drew’s dumping Diane Henry for Cowboy, leaving Diane to come in third place. But she ended up voting for Drew, contributing to his win by just one vote. Even though she tells The Cincinnati Post that “[e]veryone on the jury was telling me I would have won if Drew took me with him,” she isn’t bitter. Why not? Is she enraptured by Drew’s beauty? She says, “I was struggling with it. I told myself I was not going to make my decision out of bitterness or anger. I was going to give the money to whoever played the game the best. Cowboy really did nothing throughout the whole game. Drew made the best game move by putting me out.”

+ and: in a post with a familiar title, ahem, the TVGasm staff reports from the BB5 after-party.
