The win not only means the title of champion but also a grand cash prize of $235,000 (or so).
Originally the grand prize was set at $250,000 but thanks to a shock twist in the game, roughly $15,000 was deducted from the total.
Chad won the final challenge and the right to decide who he took to tonight’s live finale with him.
It was a no-brainer for Chad to bring Sophie, the girl he’s fallen for and formed an unbreakable alliance with, but the last housemate proved a difficult decision.
Torn between his heart – choosing Daniel – and his head – choosing Mat – ultimately it was Chad’s moral compass that made the decision, choosing the AFL star as the third spot.
While Chad believed he stood a better chance of beating Mat than Dan, the model felt Dan had played the better game, and therefore deserved the chance to win.
