Rachel Reilly Crowned Big Brother's 13th Season Champ
Second time's the charm!
After 75 days locked away from the outside world, two-time Big Brother contestant Rachel Reilly emerged victorious as the winner of the CBS reality hit's 13th season Wednesday.
Declared the winner by the show's seven-member jury -- which included her fiance, Brendon Villegas -- Reilly triumphed over 23-year-old Porsche Briggs to earn the $500,000 grand prize.
"Oh, it's going to be a very hard decision," Villegas, 31, joked as he cast his jury vote for Reilly on Wednesday's show. The couple first met during last summer's Big Brother installment and got engaged after filming wrapped.
Though the 26-year-old L.A.-based cocktail waitress secured four of the seven jury votes, Reilly's fellow houseguests made it clear it was her cunning gameplay -- not her charm -- that won them over.
"Rachel, you're lucky this is not a personality contest," fellow veteran Daniele Donato, 25, sniped as she cast her vote in favor of Briggs.
"I have fought," countered Reilly, who won six of the show's coveted Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions. "I was a target since I walked through these doors."
Beating out finalist Adam Poch for the runner-up spot, Briggs earned a $50,000 consolation prize.
