EMBB Series Master Spreadsheet
The EMBB Public Records has now been revamped including voting charts of all the EMBB seasons, along with a Directory to Epicmafia threads, a list of trophiers, Awards given, and Records of players and returneees.
This is (probably) the final thing to be posted in the Announcement Chat this season, so from all the hosts, we wanted to thank everyone for keeping the series alive. This series started in March of 2016 with Season 1 and now has ended Season 9 in October of 2018. To everyone who's hosted, played, or viewed the EMBB series, thank you again!

The hosts would like to thank cosmoiswatching for hosting a GREAT roundtable. You were a great guide and help this season, thank you so much.

This jury roundtable has 78 SCREENSHOTS so once you're ready to read all this click this imgur album!

Our seventh award is Fan Favorite, and the top three were FireDragonPrince, FFSierraDamnThomas, and Zacharae. The winner with a majority of the votes is...

With many VLs and his position in the overall game, he was very entertaining and stole the Viewing Lounge's hearts.

The hosts would also like to recognize powerofdeath for his game.
His position crumbled as he had to vote to evict Big Z in hopes of keeping his final 2 (cjn104) safe, and once the eviction did not go according to plan, his only hope was himself or Zacharae winning Head of Household - unfortunately, they did not, and he was nominated by Jackson despite the Weebs Final 3 being in tact. He then fell to an alliance Power of Veto. Watching his game fall was tragic to watch, but was also interesting to see as powerofdeath has rarely played as an underdog.

The hosts would like to recognize cjn104 and Morgan as well.
Had Alissa not quit, cjn104 was in heavy contention of winning the game, and held a lot of relationships that’d enable him to do so. Morgan was also a great strategic player as everyone knows, and he managed to run the endgame of the season to how he saw fit with his only flaw being his relationships with the jury (despite that, he still managed to receive Big Z’s jury vote!) They were very close runner ups for this award and we wanted to recognize their games.

Our sixth award is Player of the Season and the top three were cjn104, FireDragonPrince, and Morgan. All three of these players played great games, but only one can win. The winner is…

FireDragonPrince was able to secure himself in a Weebs alliance and had the players in Double Trouble on his side until Morgan flipped. At one point, the hosts thought him or Borrach were going to win the game as they were remaining untouched by the other houseguests until Zacharae won Head of Household. He was one of the only players to actively search the Game Board which caused him to find a power that kept himself safe in Zacharae’s first Head of Household reign, and was the last player to be nominated this season. He proved himself as a great player and if he was able to win a competition Final 5 and secure his safety, he possibly could’ve won out to the end. Thank you for playing FireDragonPrince!

Now, our fifth award is “Host’s Favorite” and the top three were cjn104, Zacharae, and FireDragonPrince. The winner is…

cjn104 was so much fun to watch. He was in a great position until Alissa walked, which took out cjn104 and powerofdeath in one fell swoop. He had great relationships with the side of “Double Trouble” (Borrach, Morgan, powerofdeath and himself) and the side of the “Gays Only” alliance (Rosematter, sammy, YanmegaMan, Zacharae, and himself with Zaden as a side ally). Alissa’s quit caused Morgan to reconsider his next game move, and he had to take out cjn104 for being a threat. Cjn104 was definitely “robbed”, and the hosts are very grateful to have him on this season.

Our fourth award is “Best Diary Room” and the top three were cjn104, FFSierraDamnThomas, and Zacharae. The winner is…

FFSierraDamnThomas loved talking in his Diary Room. He thought all the time of which move was the best to make, and it ate his entire Diary Room out alive! He would never stop thinking about what to do, and even though he was in school for a large portion of the day, he still managed to entertain us with his captivating thoughts. His moves may have not turned out the best, but he still was very great and fun to watch. Without him this season would be very different!
over 5 years
Our third award is “Best Pre-Juror” and the top three were benfox2, Rosematter, and YanmegaMan. The winner is…

YanmegaMan was great to watch despite his short stay. He was in a very entertaining final 2 alliance with Zacharae, and was one of the only people to play the Week 2 HOH competition, where he and Zacharae were hilarious. Their partnership causing a Double Eviction was one of the greatest moments this season, and it was very unfortunate his game had to come to an end!
over 5 years
Our second award is “Most Underrated” and the top three were FFSierraDamnThomas, powerofdeath, and Morgan. The winner is…
You were massively underestimated throughout the game as you were deemed a non threat to win, despite controlling every eviction from Final 6 to the end. Your game deserves more praise!
over 5 years
Our first award is “Should Sign up to IRL Big Brother” and the top three were cjn104, Uprizzle, and Morgan. The winner is….

You were captivating to watch in your Diary Room as you talked out all your moves and seemed to be socially dominant with the “gay alliance” and the side of Double Trouble all liking you. You would definitely be able to use this social prowess to win Big Brother IRL!

Congratulations ZACHARAE for winning EMBB9 in a 4-2 vote! You entered this game creating solid allies but had to lose a lot of them as you got to Final 7. You then created new allies and managed to secure a perception of yourself that enabled players to keep you around without knowing that they had taken the underdog all the way to the end. Despite being on the bottom of the game for the first half, you managed to finally find your footing in the end of it all. You should be proud of how you played!

Congratulations MORGAN as well for winning the Silver Trophy! You were underestimated a lot throughout this game. For the first half of the season, you didn’t do much, yet were in alliances securing your safety, but that worked to your advantage as you were able to make a lot of the moves the second half of the game. You evicted Big Z who was actively targeting you, secured a swing position in Final 5, and then ensured you wouldn’t be evicted moving into the finale. The only arguable flaw can be taking Zacharae all the way to the end, but despite that, you still strategically dominated.

WEEK 12 Final Eviction

Morgan: Zach...
Right now, this one opportunity I didn't give to you that's still with me is truly a detour.
It's truly, truly,
a very long, roundabout path.
I used the Head of Household's power...
the "vote to evict"...
the final lesson.
Sensing defeat, after he himself was already beaten, Zach...
At once thought of the decision I was to make.
Because he knew of the decision I had to make.
That was the reason for the final lesson.
The perfect game plan - and I still have one play left.
I use my sole vote to evict FFSierraDamnThomas.
Sorry buddy.

FFSierraDamnThomas, you have been evicted. You are the final juror and will have a say in who wins this game. Thank you for playing. You are leaving with a Bronze trophy.

With a score of 6-3 after 9 questions, Morgan wins Final Head of Household.

Months of scrambling to survive in one of the most twisted seasons of the EMBB series has led to this final moment. This may easily determine whether or not you’ll win this game. Eat or be eaten this round or you’ll face the jury chat in shame.

Welcome to Part 3 of the Final Head of Household competition.

This competition is called Jury Statements. We have asked the jurors 2 questions each about the game. We will send a statement, along with 3 ABC options. You will answer in your Diary Room with A, B, or C.


Yousef: The host I’m most shocked by this season is…
Nat…. she’s been rude!
Matt. No explanation needed!

The correct answer is… A!

The houseguest who correctly identifies the most houseguest’s answers will win Final Head of Household and choose who to evict and who to take with them to Final 2.

Once a Juror’s statement is posted, you will only have 30 seconds to answer. If you answer after the 30 second limit is over, your answer will not count.

In the event of a tie, 5 more statements will be sent. If there is another tie, it will be Jury Statements again (the day after this part is played) but you will only score if you answer first and correctly.

This will be a live competition so please organize a time when you two can both compete. Once a winner has been determined, they will have 15 minutes to decide who to evict so campaign while you can.

Good luck houseguests. This will determine your fate.
