Campbelltown man needs your vote to win Big Brother 2020

Chad Hurst's Big Brother dream could come true in less than 24 hours - but he needs your help.

The Eagle Vale local entered the Big Brother house as one of 20 contestants and now he has made it to the final three.

Mr Hurst's fate now rests in the hands of the Australian public who must vote to choose this year's winner.

The Macarthur local said he was proud to have made the top three.

"It's bloody overwhelming - I can't even explain it," he said.

"I am super proud of myself for getting this far."

More than 50,000 people applied to become Big Brother housemates this year.

Mr Hurst said he believed his father was with him throughout the competition.

He told the Advertiser last month that his dad had always encouraged him to go on the show.

"Big Brother was Dad's favourite show," the former Eagle Vale High School student said.

"I think it was fate that I made it this far.

"Once I won the final challenge the emotions just kicked in because I know he would have been proud."

Big Brother is a reality show where 20 people live inside a house, participate in challenges and eliminate each other for the chance to win $250,000.

Although this year's finalists will compete for a reduced prize pool after a contestant took home around $15,000 in an earlier challenge.

The 27-year-old said the final two challenges were some of the toughest he had faced.

"I always had faith that Sophie and I would win the challenges," Mr Hurst said.

"I won the most challenges in the season but I hurt my ankle after one of the challenges so that's when I got nervous because Sophie had disadvantages and I was injured for the final two."

The tradie-turned-model said he would use the prize money for two things.

"Since the beginning there has been two things I have always wanted to spend the money on," he said.

"I want to go on trip away with the boys - we were thinking Vegas but that has changed now because of 'rona [Covid-19].

"And the main thing is that I want is to help out my mum."

Mr Hurst encouraged Macarthur to get behind him and vote.

"I'm the only westie in there and I'm proud to be from Campbelltown," he said.

"I was loyal, stayed true to my morals and I didn't back stab anyone or lie like some of the other people in the house.

"I played a fair game because that's how I was raised."

Mr Hurst will face off against his house love interest and former gymnast Sophie Budack and former AFL player Daniel Gorringe.

The Big Brother live grand final airs tomorrow night (Wednesday, July 22) at 7.30pm on Seven.
