One of several dark horses in the Celebrity Big Brother house, the Miss Universe runner-up has relied on her instincts and her emotions to build strong, smart alliances. But is that only going to make her eventual eviction — possibly at the hands of a so-called “friend” — all the more heartbreaking?
Chances of winning: Surprisingly good
MARISSA JARET WINOKUR
The Broadway star’s initial strategy was to endear herself to the other houseguests via her “cute, chubby Marissa” persona — but this plan began to unravel when she betrayed former bestie Shannon Elizabeth, revealing her true nature as a competitor willing to do whatever it takes to win.
Chances of winning: Very good
Honestly, has anyone said a single negative word about the Sugar Ray frontman all season? The undisputed dad of the Celebrity Big Brother house, Mark has made far more allies than enemies, so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that he’s lasted this long. Still, with James out of the game, Mark is down a friend — and in this competition, you need all the friends you can get.
Chances of winning: Decent
She’s indeed proven herself a force to be reckoned with, but more importantly, Omarosa has proven herself to be completely untrustworthy. And with the other four remaining houseguests plotting against her, it’ll take a miracle to keep Lady O in the game. Then again, this wouldn’t be the first I’ve counted her out.
Chances of winning: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The TV personality has reveled in being “underestimated” all season, but now that everyone’s had a chance to see what he’s capable of, he’ll need to fight his way to the finish line — even against those with whom he’s formed powerful alliances and friendships. I’m expecting tears.
