The highly anticipated finale was the one inside the "Big Brother" house. After nearly 3 months being cooped up in a house, one Big Brother contestant is half-a-million dollars richer.

Drew Daniels, a recent college graduate from Ohio, was chosen as the winner of Big Brother 5. It was a close call. Drew beat out Michael, who was also known as "Cowboy" by just one vote. Michael is from the Oklahoma town of Durant.

Friends, family and people who are just fans of the show came out for Tuesday night's local watch party.

Even though he didn't win the big prize, he's still a big hit with the locals. It wasn't a total loss. He still takes home $50,000, and 15 minutes of fame.
