Who won Celebrity Big Brother 2022?
Miesha Tate was officially crowned the winner of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother. She scored a vote of 7-1 after stating to the jury that she tried to play the game with integrity, while trying to win as many competitions as she could.
She went on to add how she wanted to inspire her children to dream big, and show her daughter girls can do it all. Up against Todrick Hall and Cynthia Bailey, the mixed martial artist also secured the final Head of Household power.
When it became time to evict the next houseguest, she chose Cynthia, who later revealed that she respects Miesha’s honest approach to the game. She also agreed that she would have taken Todrick to the jury if the roles were reversed.
Miesha, 35, is a former Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion and now competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, where she is a former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
She was so successful playing the game that she won the $250K cash prize!
