Australian Survivor favourite and Perth father of three Luke was relieved to have broken his fourth-place curse, exclaiming after tasting victory for the first time, “I’m so happy. I cannot believe it!”

He had beaten fellow finalists Ellie Gonsalves and Josh Carroll in a viewer vote that began last night.

Luke was known for his strategic gameplay before entering Big Brother’s hotel, and only played with the same brazen and sneak that saw him go deep in Australian Survivor.

Luke managed to last the entire season of Big Brother VIP without gaining a single eviction vote from his fellow housemates.

In the end, it was a recipe that ultimately won over Big Brother VIP fans.

When asked by host Sonia Kruger what winning meant to him, Luke said:

“Well, it means I get to go home to Lennox and tell him that Dad won!”

Luke was also thrilled to give back to the cystic fibrosis unit at the Perth Children’s hospital who treated his daughter and supported his family, adding:

“It’s so great that I get to go back to Perth Children’s Hospital now, pretty much go back with a big stack of cash, $110,000!”

He had won an extra $10,000 for his charity during the last challenge for the series, played out during the Grand Final.

Luke also expressed his gratitude for supporters who voted for him, saying:

“This one is for you. I’ve finally done it. I’ve won something. Thank you to everyone that has supported me…I will remember this moment forever… love you guys!”

Despite losing the competition, Josh was thankful for his time on the show, seeing it as an experience that saw him grow as it went on.

Ellie also reflected on her journey throughout the season, perceived to have had the toughest road to making it to the final three.

The episode also saw several unseen moments aired, as well as a message from evicted housemate Caitlyn Jenner video-calling with the three finalists before the winner reveal.
