Jordan Lloyd, a 22-year-old waitress from Matthews, N.C., won the $500,000 grand prize on Tuesday's finale of the 11th season of "Big Brother."
Lloyd was joined in the final two by Natalie Martinez, 24, of Gilbert, Ariz.
Third place went to Kevin Campbell, 29, of Chula Vista, Calif.
Early in the episode, Lloyd won Head of Household and chose to go to the final round with Martinez. Lloyd scored the $500,000 prize with a 5-2 vote.
Never miss a local story.
Six of the jury members were former "Big Brother" housemates from this season.
The last jury voice went to the show's viewers, a result of former contestant Chima Simone's expulsion. Viewers voted for Lloyd, who said she'd put part of the money toward a down payment on a house for her family.
An $25,000 prize for America's favorite player went to Jeff Schroeder, who had a close relationship with Lloyd on the CBS reality show.
