Model Chad Hurst has won Big Brother 2020 and the $234,656 prize.
The 27-year-old from Sydney’s western suburbs defeated Sophie Budack and Daniel Gorringe for the title.
The win caps off a personal victory for Chad whose father Neil, passing away from cancer three years ago, was a fan of previous Big Brother seasons.
“F***!” he declared at the news.
“Boys start booking flights, we’re going on a trip! And looking after Ma, is all that matters to me.”
He attributed his success in the game to playing by heart, playing with integrity and not letting anything interfere with his morals.
“I stayed true to myself and to my family,” he said. “I also won the most challenges which helped.”
Sonia Kruger hosted a Live to air grand final with reunited housemates at Eveleigh studios, drawing over 700,000 public votes.
The finale wraps up a successful season for Seven, despite some early concerns around a pre-recorded format, proving particularly strong in the 16-39 demos.
Seven has already announced auditions for a 2021 season.
