She fought hard to overcome the Brigade alliance in the "Big Brother" house until last week, and now Britney Haynes unfortunately will be returning to Little Rock, Arkansas to find her real house damaged from a fire.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Britney's rental home - which she shared with (oft-mentioned) fiance Nick Grisham - was set ablaze when a small grill in the backyard ignited the grass nearby, followed by a trash can and then the home itself. The fire was described as "fully involved" by the paper.
Tonight marks the 12th season finale of the show, in which Britney will vote for someone to win the $500,000 prize (her best friend in the house, Lane, is still in the running).
Grisham and her family will break the news to Britney after the finale. She has been sequestered in the "jury house" since being voted off this past Thursday.
Grisham's mother lawyer told the Democrat-Gazette, "She can't do anything. The final show is tonight and it's live. There's no sense in her knowing."
