Judd's biggest fans, his friends and family, wouldn't miss the moment the Big Brother celebrity walked through the doors at the airport.
Judd Daugherty of Englewood fulfilled a long time dream of his to be on CBS's Big Brother.
"I've been watching the show since I was 13 you know, I'm 26 now so it's half of my life. It definitely feels like a dream come true," said Daugherty.
He and 15 other house mates lived in the Big Brother house, facing elimination each week.
Judd made it to the final five, and said he'd do it all again if he could.
"It was definitely as fun as I expected but it was also way harder than I expected. There was a lot of down time, those competitions are not as easy as they look on TV," he said.
Now, he's coming back to the real world after coming out of isolation as the show on Wednesday.
"When you're in the house you don't really realize how many people are actually watching it. Then you come out and everybody's talking about how they watched the feeds and stuff and it's so cool that everybody's seen everything I did this summer," Daugherty said.
