“Celebrity Big Brother” host Julie Chen recently opened up about the shocking results during finale night.

On Sunday, Marissa Jaret Winokur received six votes from the members of the jury, while Ross Mathews earned three votes. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chen said that she initially thought Winokur made a wrong decision to pick Mathews as her final two.

“When she picked him, I thought, oh, now you just made a huge mistake. You just lost the game. It was in your hands! And then, when the vote count was six to three, I thought, wow. I did not expect that,” Chen said.

The host also acknowledged the fact that majority of the jurors held grudges at the end of the season, but this is understandable. “People are voting emotionally, but this is ‘Big Brother’ and I’ve seen that happen before…” she said. But at the end of the day, she is confident that the houseguests will stay friends until the end.

Meanwhile, the host also opened up about the possible second season of “Celebrity Big Brother.” She said that because the ratings were good, a second season cannot be ruled out. However, they will most likely incorporate some twists to differentiate the season of celebrities from the normal season.

For instance, five houseguests made it to the finale episode, but in the regular season, only three houseguests are typically left in the game.

And when asked what surprised her most during the three-week run of “Celebrity Big Brother,” Chen said it’s how the celebs all showed a very human side to themselves – most especially Omarosa Manigault.

“There was something refreshing for me to see in Omarosa… and I was surprised at how drawn I was to her. I can’t really explain it, but when she opens her mouth, I can’t stop listening to her!... I am fascinated by her,” she said.
