What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?
The most controversial season of reality television ever, Big Brother 15, came to a close Thursday night when Andy Herren won $500,000 by a 7-to-2 jury vote.
But the consensus is there are truly no winners here as the summer saw countless racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic and ignorant comments spewed by the housesguests, both online and on-air.
Following the finale, ET hit up the BB15 backyard to talk with all the houseguests as they were just learning about the controversy.

Jon Gosselin today is a far cry from the $1.3 million home-dwelling dad of eight featured on TLC's massively popular Jon & Kate Plus Eight. ET's Brooke Anderson recently caught up with the former reality star in his home state of Pennsylvania, where he is currently waiting tables and living the simple life in his cabin in the wilderness.
In the aftermath of his messy divorce and the conclusion of Jon & Kate, Jon says he found it nearly "impossible" to re-enter the workforce. This, consequently, led to his current gig serving patrons at local restaurant, Black Dog.
"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" explains Jon of his initial hesitancy to take the job. "But then I'm thinking, 'Well it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me…they're like 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'"
Candid about his less-than-enviable situation, Jon tells ET he has no regrets about signing up for Jon & Kate.
"I don't regret anything," the 36-year-old reveals. "You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today."
With his income from the restaurant, Jon lives out his days without the luxuries of internet or television. Though he's hit rock bottom "about 20 times" since his high-profile split, he says he is happy making the most of what he's got.
"I [party] now on a different level," he tells ET.

Miley Cyrus, 20, and Liam Hemsworth, 23, have ended their engagement.
After months of rumors reporting of a split between the two, reps for both Cyrus and Hemsworth have just confirmed to ET that the engagement is indeed off.
Miley recently un-followed Hemsworth on Twitter.
The couple first met on the movie set of 2010's The Last Song and got engaged in May 2012.
"Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with. I don't really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we've made to each other," Cyrus told Marie Claire in August 2012. " ... Liam and I have a really good relationship -- neither of us is super-jealous. We know each other and would never do anything to hurt each other."
Jesse and Ann Csincsak are living happily ever after both appeared on The Bachelor franchise shows. The couple confirms that they are expecting baby No. 2!
"Baby number two is due late March 2014," Jesse, the season 4 winner of The Bachelorette, confirmed to FOX411's Pop Tarts. "We are currently starting our second trimester so we don't know the sex of the baby just yet. ...Number two will be a great addition to our family, completing us. I am hoping for a boy, but I’m sure Ann is secretly hoping for a girl to one day take over the fashion business she is building."
Jesse, 31, and Ann, who was a contestant on The Bachelor's 13th season, married in 2010 and have a son, Noah, who was born in 2011.
Zac Efron reportedly went through rehab earlier this year.
According to People, sources claim that the Neighbors star completed his stint about five months ago.
E! News first reported the story, quoting one source as saying that now Efron, 25, is "healthy" and "taking time to focus on working."
Efron himself told E! that he's "good, real good," at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of his film Parkland, opening October 4.
In the movie, Efron plays Jim Carrico, the first doctor to examine President John F. Kennedy after he was shot in Dealey Plaza.
