“To make history, to win it twice, what a better housemate to do it than me?!” Bird exclaimed, laughing. “I know that sounds wanky, but to win it twice would be an absolute dream come true and an honour, to keep the crown on Reggie’s head would be amazing.”

“I’m up against tough competition, and they just have to get on and vote,” Bird said. “I’ve played an honest game, and you know, I did the best that I could. And I’m funny, and I’m good, and I did it for my kids! This one’s for the kids!” she laughed.

For Taras Hrubyj-Piper, it’s all about rooting for the underdog.

Ah, it’d feel so good!” he gushed. “I just feel like, I know if it was me not in the show, I’d want a newbie to win. I really, really, really would.”

Hrubyj-Piper said that despite the narrative arc of the show, “the newbies are actually the underdogs in this show, since the start, even if it doesn’t look like it”.

“We’ve been on the back foot the entire time,” he explained, pointing out that the OGs had all that time in the beginning of the show “to become friends,” and form alliances, “with all the population of Australia behind them because they’re known and loved, and they’re the most loved out of all the ones who came before”.

He continued: “I think the newbies played such a good game and they got so far, and it’ll be so hard for me to beat Johnson and Reggie, but I think we deserve it, I think we really, really, really deserve it”.

As for superfan Johnson Ashak, it would be a literal dream come true.

“It would mean the world to me, and to my family,” he said.

“There’s a photo that I’m gonna throw up [on Instagram] of me in 2002, standing next to the eviction chair,” he said. “Twenty years on in 2022, here I am in the finale, standing side-by-side with two powerhouses.”

He continued: “To be the best you’ve gotta beat the best, and I did everything I could in the house to make it to the end, and this is a superfan’s dream — getting to the end and taking it out.”
