Kaycee Clark is the 2nd Gay Houseguest to Win 'Big Brother'

Kaycee Clark became the 20th winner of Big Brother last night after she narrowly beat fellow houseguest Tyler Crispen by a vote of 5-4. She scored $500,000 in the process, while Tyler won $50,000 plus the honor of America's Favorite Houseguest. 

This makes her the 2nd contestant in the history of the United States version of Big Brother to win. Andy Herren, who competed in the most controversial season of BB to date, won back in 2013. 

On Day 99, last night, Kaycee became the final Head of Household and chose to evict another openly gay contestant, Joseph "JC" Mondiux, who ran into a bunch of problems while in the BB house. Fans of BB wanted him off the show due to his inappropriate behavior that included lewd language and using an ice cream scooper on someone's nether regions.

Kaycee and Andy join a long line of houseguests who have identified as LGBTQ while on the long-running reality competition series. This dates all the way back to 2001, when Bill "Bunky" Miller was the first contestant to publicly speak about his sexuality on the show, and since then has seen many others openly talk about being gay including Marcellas Reynolds (season 3 and All Stars), Will Wikle (Season 5) and Steven Daigle (season 10).
