RECAP | The final three decided on BIG BROTHER as Mat is the final housemate evicted

Day 39 in the Big Brother house saw the Top 4 face one final, almighty, “winner takes all” challenge. Despite a bung ankle, Chad took out the challenge and was automatically put in the final three.

He then had the power to decide which two housemates to take with him to the grand final and who to evict. An emotional Chad listened to his heart and stuck to his morals, choosing cuddle buddy Sophie and “solid guy” Dan to join him in the final three, thereby sending Mat home. Now it’s up to you Australia! Who deserves to win Big Brother 2020?


At the top of a long sloping track housemates released a ball and then raced to the end of the track to collect it before it dropped. They then returned the ball to the top of the track and released it again, periodically being instructed to add more balls to the track to make it more difficult. The last person with balls in play won the challenge, was guaranteed a place in the final three and had the power to choose the final evictee.


Chad won the power to choose the final evictee and who to take with him to the grand final!


Chad Hurst, Sydney – “I feel like Dan deserves it. When Sophie made a return, Dan took it better. I think Dan’s a solid guy. I feel like he’s going to beat me, but I’ve played this game so that when mum watches the show, she’ll be proud of me. If I won this whole show breaking morals and making stupid moves that’s not winning. You get cash at the end of the day, but you don’t win as a person. Final three… I couldn’t be happier, I’m proud. It’s up to Australia now. Whoever wins bloody deserves it, dead set.”

Sophie Budack, Darwin – “I’m so happy, this is literally my dream come true. This is what I was striving for, I wanted a podium finish. Chad and I about to enter the real world together and I’m so excited to see where this relationship goes. It’s going to be good to get out of the house and give us a shot of normality.”

Daniel Gorringe, Melbourne – “I’ve never, ever, ever done something like this, I’ve never achieved anything close to this, ever. I feel like for once in my life I’ve achieved something. I’ve made people like my family and Ana so proud. That’s what I wanted to do, I wanted people to be proud of me. And hopefully now I’m in the top three I’ve done that and it’s an awesome feeling.”


Mat Garrick, Broken Hill – “I’m pretty shattered but Chad’s played a great game. He fought through adversity today and he won fair and square, so absolutely no hard feelings towards Chad at all. I would like to be remembered as someone who was just themself in there. I’m a nobody from Broken Hill but it just proves that being yourself can take you a long way, in a game like Big Brother and in life itself. Hopefully I make the town and region of Broken Hill really proud with what I’ve done.”
