Drew Daniel wins Big Brother 5.

Drew Daniel wins Big Brother 5.
With four of the seven jury votes, Drew Daniel won Big Brother 5. While Michael “Cowboy” Ellis received the twins’ votes, and a vote from the half-sister he betrayed, the other four jury members gave Drew credit for playing the game, rather than just riding along in Drew’s ass, as one of them tastefully put it. The finale was full of contentious moments, such as when Marvin asked Cowboy if he was “a racist liar or a lying racist.” Cowboy defended himself by showing that he’s truly a multicultural man who’s aware of all forms of diversity: “I love every type of race–Chinese, Japanese.” Later he said, “I’m not for no means” racist, which, well, you try to decode it. The reunion of the jury with the non-jury houseguests was also largely angry. For one, former bedfellows Scott and Jase aren’t speaking to one another, or at least Jase isn’t talking to Scott. Holly, unfortunately, was talking to everyone, shattering glass with her screeching complaints about Diane. Jase, appearing as though he was hopped up on something, kept talking about how Marvin only pretended to like Will. All the while, Julie Chen stood between the two groups and tried to maintain adequate posture. She failed.
