McMinn County local Judd Daugherty's family has been cheering him on since episode one of Big Brother 15.
The pit of the season for them was two weeks ago, when Judd was voted out.
The peak happened this week, when Judd and three other evicted house mates...also known as the jury...were given a shot to come back on the show.
The beginning of the competition was shown on CBS, but fans had to switch to the live online feed to see the results.
"Watching it on TV and them saying, tune back in Sunday, I was like NO! So I automatically got on my computer and waited for the live feeds to come on," said Judd's Co-Worker Ashley Ingram.
After more than an hour of the nail biting competition, Judd took the victory.
"Helen fell then Candace fell right behind her and I probably woke my entire house up," said Ingram.
It's the first time an evicted member has had the chance to come back in Big Brother history.
"That tells me it was meant to be you know there's no doubt that it was meant to be for him to be there and to be in that house and win this game," said Judd's aunt Amy Cass.
Now his friends and family have a renewed hope that Judd will win the entire competition.
"He's gonna win the 500-thousand dollars. He's not gonna give up," Ingram said.
