09:15 BB calls Billy to the diary room for a battery change. The lights are still out.
At 10:00 BB calls Zach to the farm. Since Billy is up he goes with him.
At 10:20 BB announces hot water, the one everyone has been waiting for. They gave it up yesterday so they would have it today. Even Joel and Zoran get out of bed for a cleaning this morning.
At 11:00 BB announces breakfast is served in the rewards room so Travis, Zach and Billy go inside.
Joel and Travis played a challenge for the Thongey Ball trophy yesterday. Joel won and has the right to take it to South Australia for 12 months. He hid it yesterday so Travis couldn’t get it. Now it is missing from his hiding place. He looks for it and finds it hidden in one of Daniela’s drawers. He moves it so Travis doesn’t know that he has it.
At noon the four nominees are packing. Joel looks around like he is trying to find the trophy and plays like he is angry at Travis or one of the others for taking the trophy. He has told Aleisha that he has it and they play like he is accusing her of taking it. No he is going at Zach and Zoran. They just let him rant.
At 12:45 BB calls Billy, the chef, to the diary room and gives him a big basket of food for their lunch. He has all the makings for a Sunday roast lamb dinner. He tells the HMs that he asks BB why he was giving them this and BB responded that he didn’t have to give a reason. Everyone is wondering what is going on with BB. But for whatever reason, they are going to eat well today!
13:15 and the trio are back in the rewards room. They still don’t know that they will not be nominating tomorrow night. They are still talking about who and why they will nominate.
15:00 and the roasting of the lamb is well underway now and they are making sure that this meal is not ruined by sloppy cooking. Billy announces that they still have about one hour of roasting time left before the meat is done.
16:00 and everyone is gathered around in the kitchen smelling the cooking lamb roast.
At 16:15 the roast finally comes out of the oven. Billy slices it up and serves it out along with a generous serving of vegetables on all the plates. Aleisha says this is amazing as she takes her first bite. Travis proposes a toast to all of the housemates left and they all raise their glasses to themselves and drink.
At 15:45 BB announces it is time to pack and everyone clears the table. Travis goes into the bedroom to finish packing. When Joel comes in he asks him if he packed the trophy. Joel just smirks.
At 17:00 everyone is on the lounge and they are talking about how tonight will go. Will BB take the four out to the eviction room or will everything play out right here? Aleisha tells them that a cool way of doing it would be to separate all six of them into separate rooms with a plasma screen in each room. They let Gretel appear on the screen and evict just the one she wants. Nobody else would know and then it would definitely be a surprise. The only problem would be that you didn’t have a chance to say goodbye.
At 19:00 Zoran and Zach go to finish some last minute hair fixing but everyone else stays on the lounge and waits for BB.
At 19:20 BB announces that an eviction will begin soon. Everyone goes outside to see if they can hear the crowd. Zach stands on the hot tub platform and says, “I hope someone out there is looking out for me!” BB calls them back inside five minutes later.
BB calls the four nominees to the front and has Billy reveals his twist. Billy saves himself and puts Zach up which is no big surprise. Zach goes to the bedroom and comes back out with his pre-packed bags. He is carrying his suit in the cleaner’s bag that they sent it back from the cleaners in the other day. Although he entered the house all gussied up he is going out dressed like a bloke just like everyone else tonight.
Everyone is back in the yard. Aleisha tells Zach that she is going to give him a big ‘girl’ kiss when he goes, full on the lips. She says this is a sad eviction. He says no there is only one week left and they will see everyone next week.
At 20:05 it is back on the couch and Gretel appears on the screen to start the festivities. She reveals that tonight is a double which is no surprise to the savvy housemates. Then she gets the envelope and says, “It is time to go… JOEL!”
Everyone is shocked to see the one that they were all sure would be there at the end get evicted first tonight.
“What the hell happened there?” says Travis, adding: “I don’t think he saw it coming either.”
“I did not see that coming,” Zoran says. Travis admits: “I thought Joel would win this, how bloody wrong was I?”
Zoran paces in the yard and says: “I just lost my best friend.”
Travis laughs: "We have a ninja down." He then tells Aleisha and Billy where he has hidden some Starburst snakes.
They all talk about Joel in the house and they find his nametag and hang it on the sculpture alongside all the others who have gone.
At 20:30 Gretel appears again. She has three envelopes now, one red and two green. She opens a green one and says, “It is time to stay… ZACH!” He was so sure, as were they all, that he would go tonight. He looks like a wall just fell on him but the rest are congratulating him and hugging him. Aleisha is really pleased.
But it is now time for the last one. Gretel opens the red one and says, “It is time to go… ZORAN!” He gets up and they all sent him off with a bang. Then they all rush outside to listen.
Travis makes the unexpected announcement that there are only blondes left in the house now, looking around at all the remaining HMs. They take a second to let it sink in.
They are the Final Four!!
They all says that Joel and Zoran will have a ball this week on the Gold Coast together.
The remaining HMs all sit around on the lounge and reminisce about the many things that have happened in the house this year. Aleisha points out that a ninja will make it to the end!! Everyone that is left has joined the ninja fraternity and performed at least one ninja attack in the house.
They talk about the upcoming week. What will be the FNL? Aleisha hopes that there are heights involved like in past final FNL. Aleish suddenly points out that all of the snorers have gone and they can sleep with some peace and quiet this week!
At 22:30 it is time for the farewell messages on the plasma screen.
Joel says Travis is ‘an absolute champion’, and he says all the positive things said about him are not cliché but fact. He ends up by saying: “You’re just a great bloke.”
“Billy, you’re a champion,” Joel continues: “You’ve got a great heart and you’ve got a lot of good things coming to you.”
He assures Zach: “Just being comfortable in who you are has made a big difference.”
“You’re innocent, keep it that way,” Joel tells Aleisha, before joking: “I haven’t had one bad thing to say about you in this time. The others, not so much.”
“The eyes tell the story and what you see is sweetness,” he adds. Joel finsishes off his message by saying: “In conclusion I would like to say thank you for having me in the house even though it was forced upon you.”
After it is over Travis says: “That was one of the best messages I heard.”
Zoran’s message is next, he starts with: “I want to thank everyone for making this experience in the BB house a fantastic memory.”
“You’re a fantastic guy,” Zoran says about Travis. He adds he loves the way nothing really gets to Travis. Zoran continues with: “I think of you as a great father figure as well.”
Zoran tells Billy he’s a ‘top bloke’ and: “I can’t wait to go out with you mate.”
“I really got to know you in the last two weeks. Top bloke, loud and proud,” Zoran tells Zach. He tells Aleisha: “You are like a little bubble that pops, keep it going and I love our chats.”
After the messages are over the HMs have a snack. Aleisha says: “Those two boys gave me the sweetest messages.”
The gathering breaks up and everyone moves about to reflect. Billy and Aleisha play a game with each other.
“Thomas is gone,” Aleisha replies. Billy asks for Bodie, but is informed he is gone too. Billy asks: “I’m here to play with Andrew.”
“He doesn’t live here anymore, sorry you’ve got the wrong house, go away,” she jokes.
At 00:25 the diary room doors suddenly close and everyone jumps and wonder what is happening. They sit up and listen for the slightest sound. Billy says Gretel is going to come in. Little does he know that tomorrow she will visit the house.
BB suddenly calls the boys to the diary room leaving Aleisha all alone on the couch. She is sitting there lamenting that they have left her alone and lonely. But the boys come back out a few minutes later carrying their bags. Aleisha hid behind the big plant beside the door to scare them but Billy came out first and just stood in the door like he expected just this type of prank from his in-house squeeze.
Everyone goes to the bedroom and put their clothes away. When they finish talk turns to those who have left.
“I’m kind of forgetting what she looks like,” Aleisha says about Emma. Billy replies: “Blonde, kind of has freckles.”
They lay chatting in bed. Aleisha says about Zoran, adding: “I reckon he’ll catch up with Susannah.”
“I’ll reckon she’ll be engaged to that bloke,” Travis says about Susannah’s boyfriend. Billy thinks it’s unlikely to happen. Aleisha says: “I reckon Daniela wanted Zoran.”
They discuss the final show and Aleisha wonders: “if anyone is hooking up that would totally shock us.”
They all think it’s unlikely Bodie and TJ have gotten together. They begin reminiscing about the early days in the House and wonder how Kate and Bodie feel now.
They are still lying in bed talking when BB turns out the lights at 01:30.
