Why Didn’t Jag Bains Vote Out Matt Klotz on ‘Big Brother 25’?
Heading in Big Brother 25 years Finally, the show’s community had reached a consensus: Jag Bains had to eliminate Matt Klotz to win the $750,000 grand prize. But, it wasn’t. And he won anyway.
Jag and Matt were linked through the entire competition of almost 100 days, but their working relationship took a big step when Matt saved Jag in week 4. Jag was voted out unanimously on day 30. But, Matt had a secret winning advantage – the Power of Invincibility – and before the 25-year-old owner of the trucking company walked out the front door, it was announced that the Jag foreclosure had been voided.
After that, the two moved together and formed their alliance “Minutemen”. Jag had Matt’s back, and vice versa.
Teaming up with Bowie Jane Ball to create “The Mafia”, Jag and Matt ran Big brother 25 from week 10 onwards and tournament wins. Besides Blue Kim’s one Power of Veto win, Matt, Jag, or Bowie Jane Ball had all the power. And by day 94, only the three of them were left living inside the residence.
However, during the final four, Jag had the opportunity to eliminate Matt – who was considered to have the best social game Big brother 25. Matt didn’t touch the nomination block until that final week, and bolstered by his clutch competitive wins and the fact that Jag was only around because of Matt’s Invincibility Power, it was clear to many that Matt’s Jag needed to be sent. to the Jury to stand the chance. becoming the franchise’s first ever Sikh winner.
Jag went back and forth with the decision, but ultimately chose to eliminate Felicia Cannon instead.
Then, Jag and Matt found themselves fighting in the third part of the final Head of Household competition. Jag won in a tie, and had the closest decision of the 100 day stretch – does he back his best friend and Bowie Jane, who wouldn’t get a majority of the Jury’s votes, to the end?
As in history, Jag got stuck with his fellow Minuteman and ended Bowie Jane’s run.
Many who watched the two-hour finale on November 9 believed that was the wrong decision. While Jag set the record for most championship wins in a single season (10), Matt had a much cleaner road to the final two.
But Jag’s inevitable runner-up placement seemed to be slipping away when they faced the Jury of seven evicted houseguests. Matt’s responses and final pitch left a lot to be desired and Jag took the opposite approach – he played his game fully and passionately, including the backhand and lie, taking credit also for being the real leader of the Minutemen.
And when the dust settled, the Jury awarded the championship to Jag by five votes to two.
Why didn’t Jag finish off Matt when he had the chance to do so?
Hindsight is, as they say, 20/20. But, even then, it is true that Matt was a much more viable threat for Jag to win Big brother 25. However, Jag explained to Rob Cesternino and Taran Armstrong on Rob has a Podcast why he chose the hardest way – to keep Matt over Bowie Jane.
“I wasn’t sure I had the win against Matt, and that’s the truth,” Jag said. “I think my decision was not based on who I had a better chance against because it might have been a different decision.”
In short, Jag was trying to make a decision he could live with for the rest of his days, even if it was an “uphill battle”. And he couldn’t stomach Matt. “For me, it was based on my character and the game I wanted to play,” continued Jag.
“To me, it felt wrong to turn Matt on him at the end,” Jag said. “He saved me and during the game, I said I wanted to play a loyal game, and play a game with integrity. And Matt was the one I chose to stay loyal to – until the end. Even at the end, I knew this could be a $750,000 mistake, a mistake in terms of losing it. But to me, it didn’t really feel like a mistake. I knew if he won sitting next to me, he deserved to win too.”
Being the first ever Sikh champion was also a very important aspect of the launch of the game at Jag, he said. And he wanted to make a choice that his community and family could be proud of. Jag also mentioned that Matt had a chance to be Big Brothers the first deaf winner, and he supported Matt to achieve that goal.
Regardless, Jag didn’t roll over to Matt. “I thought he would have had a majority of the Jury’s votes if not all of them,” he continued. “So, I knew it was going to be an uphill battle for me, and that’s why I gave the speeches I gave, the answers I gave, because I was literally fighting for my life. I didn’t know how many shots I had…. especially considering his incredible social game.”
Regardless, Jag’s no-play decision worked out. He went back home to Omak, Washington with a six-figure payday and his name etched in it Big brother history books.
