is big brother royalty vs new contenders still on tonight public holiday queen's birthday tully smyth big brother au 2022

This season of Big Brother Australia is in full swing, and this year, Big Brother had amped things up.

For Big Brother‘s 21st birthday, he’s brought back some of the most beloved housemates in the show’s history in our Big Brother Royals, like past winners Reggie BirdTim Dormer and Trevor Butler.

He also reunited ex-lovers and agents of chaos Tully Smyth and Anthony Drew, whose showmance remains one of the most notable in the show’s history.

The gag of the season, of course, was that by the time Smyth entered the house, Drew had already struck up a romance with New Contender Sam Manovski, who was evicted on Monday, June 6th.

The drama didn’t end there, though, as Drew had hatched a plan with fellow housemate Joel Notley to eliminate the women they were romantically involved with.

The plan was that in order to keep their own hands clean, the pair would form an alliance that would mean Notley would vote out Manovski on Drew’s behalf, and Drew would vote out Notley’s love interest Aleisha Campbell.

Speaking to The Latch over the phone following her eviction from the house, Manovski said that she was “so angry” when she found out that the deal was real.

“I was actually really hurt, and really triggered and quite emotional,” she said, adding: “I didn’t know it was real up until I saw the episode”.

Manovski explained that even once they were both out of the house and dating in the real world, Drew continued to insist that the deal wasn’t about her. Eventually, the couple broke things off about a month after they’d both left the house, but Drew never fessed up about the deal.

“My whole Big Brother experience was based on this really strong and fun connection that I had,” she explained, adding that she’s trying not to let it taint the memories she has of her time on the show.

“It kind of just reflects for me some really undesirable and unattractive character traits,” she said, adding: “Yeah. He’s not my type at all. Like, at all.”

Calling it a “cowardly act”, Manovski posited that “with guys like Drew, telling the truth is not his forte”.

With all of this drama, how could you not be hooked? We’re desperately keen to find out who goes home next, and to cheer on all our faves, but will the Queen’s birthday public holiday get in the way?

Luckily, no. Big Brother Royalty Vs New Contenders will air as normal tonight, despite the public holiday. To tune in, it’s at 7.30pm, only on 7 and 7 Plus.

We can’t wait to see what happens next.
