Sure enough, Kara, Jodi, Wil, Janelle, Jojo, and Mike are in the loser-chairs off stage right when we come back. No Willie, of course. Julie tells them that Ian and Dan will be able to hear them, and starts off with Janelle, figuring she knows the game better than anyone as a three-time player. Mike somehow doesn't jump out of his skin at this slight, but he makes sure the effort of not doing so shows. The biggest surprise for Janelle was Dan's lies and gameplay. "If he doesn't win Big Brother 14, it's an absolute travesty." Julie asks if she's saying Dan's the greatest player ever ("No," Dan cuts in from the living room), and Janelle says he's certainly one of the greatest. Julie asks for Frank's take, and Frank says that although Dan used to be one of his favorites, he played a dirty game this season that he, Frank, can't respect. Julie asks for Mike's opinion, and Mike more or less agrees, but is more interested in "the journey Ian went on this summer." He's got no hard feelings about his eviction at Ian's hands. Mike Boogie going the classy route? What's he up to?
Julie then turns to Shane to let him ask a question he has for Danielle: was she in on Dan's plan to evict him last week? Danielle swears she had no idea, and Dan backs her up. Shane asks Dan why he did it that way, and Dan says that he leaves his heart and his morals on the doorstep when he comes into the house, and sucks up to Shane even further by saying he knew he couldn't beat him. The votes are already in, Dan. Julie asks Wil for his reaction, and he tells people not to hold a grudge against the person who lied to you, and take some responsibility for falling for it. Nice of someone to remember to let Wil talk. Julie changes the subject to the America's Favorite Houseguest vote, whose results will be announced soon. "Jodi!" someone hisses. Hey, it could happen.
After the ads, Julie starts revealing the votes. Danielle voted for Dan, Shane voted for Ian, Jenn voted for Ian, and Joe voted for Ian. Ian's one vote from winning, and Frank's makes it official: Ian just won Big Brother. Kind of a big day for him, wouldn't you say? He and Dan hug and come out of the house, Dan hanging back a bit to let Ian enjoy his moment. Or maybe just to avoid the fallout from the confetti cannon. The studio is a chaos of hugs and tears, most of them directed at Ian, and Julie fights her way back to her mark to tells us to come back to find out America's Favorite Houseguest, adding her own "Quack Pack" signal at the end. Still not too late for a repeat, you know.
