The first housemate to get sent packing was Gold Coast ironman Max after Renata just beat him in a nominations challenge and considered him to be a big threat in the house.
After that it was up to Daniel and Nick to choose whether to send Max, Christina, Melissa, or no one, home.
While Nick wasn't keen on eliminating any of the three, "loose cannon" Daniel voted Max out of the race, forcing the ironman said his final goodbyes.
Speaking to our sister site New Idea, Max revealed why he thought Daniel sent him packing, stating, “I didn’t get voted out because I was hated, I got voted out because one guy was scared, that’s all”.
The second eliminated housemate was social media queen Flex Mami. Fans of Flex, real name Lillian Ahenkan, were excited to see the podcasting guru and TikToker dominate the Big Brother social game but were shocked to see she was quite reserved and shy. As she said in the episode, "my game is to be a bit of a chiller," but tragically that didn't work.
In the second elimination, outback mum Mel McGorman, 33, nominated Flex, 66-year-old fashion designer Sarah-Jane, and 27-year-old Australian Ninja Warrior star Katie Williams. While SJ pleaded her case by confessing to the group her struggles to open up to people, the social media influencer was tragically eliminated for not being social enough.
"And just like that, she’s GONE!!!" Flex wrote on Instagram. "Issa travesty." Truly, it is.
While her time on Big Brother was short, she will be remembered for that memed face of hers when she was stuck up a seven-metre pole.
Third to leave the house was 45-year-old nursing student Renata.
After new housemate Jess won the nominations challenge, she placed Renata, Sid and Melissa up for eviction, even after telling Melissa she wouldn't.
Ultimately, the housemates voted Renata out of the competition.
Speaking to Now To Love, Renata revealed she "knew (she) had a target on (her) back" but it was upsetting nonetheless.
Michael barely got his bearings in the Big Brother house before the marketing consultant had to pack his bags.
After the blue team triumphed over the red team in the nominations challenge, the victorious housemates put Michael, Mary and Tilly up for eviction.
Mary's cooking skills secured her place in the house and "play smart, act dumb" Tilly's emotional pleas also tugged at some heartstrings, meaning Michael drew the short straw and was evicted from the competition.
In an interview with New Idea, Michael revealed that contestant Sarah Jane isn't exactly who she claimed to be in the house.
“I remember SJ saying she doesn’t watch TV, she doesn’t really use social media, she just does her own thing. But then I get out of the house and I was so shocked that she had this huge social media following and I was like… ‘what is this SJ?’.” the evictee dished.
And for his final trick... magician Christopher has disappeared from the competition.
After Tilly and Melissa won the balancing balls nominations challenge, they placed Charlotte, Sarah Jane and Christopher up for eviction.
In the end, it came down to Chris and Charlotte, but the stylist lived to see another day in the house, while 37-year-old Chris was sent packing by his fellow contestants.
As for why he was voted out, "master manipulator" Ari claimed his personal reason for evicting Chris was his vocation as a magician, suggesting he should "get a real job".
School teacher Carlos has been dismissed from the Big Brother classroom.
After Tilly won the nominations challenge (again!), the 21-year-old faux-ditsy student nominated Carlos, along with Jess and Charlotte.
From here, the alliances came out to play. Charlotte, a safe choice, was entirely free from the firing line, and Sarah Jane and Mary managed to convince Sid to rally their fellow housemates to keep Jess safe, leaving Carlos as the next to go.
Speaking with New Idea, Carlos said that he while he was a positive ray of sunshine on our screens, he struggled to gain a proper alliance that would keep him in the competition. And, the person he thinks was his "public enemy one?" Ari.
"I didn't match with certain personalities" Carlos reveals to New Idea. "I tried, but I'm not close with Ari. I didn't really have a connection with him."
After Tilly won yet another nominations challenge, she put Sid, SJ and Mitchell on the chopping block.
Despite his desperate pleas to his fellow contestants, in which he compared them to his favourite birds, Mitch's roomies sent him flying from the Big Brother nest.
In an interview with New Idea, Mitchell confessed that what we saw on screen wasn't completely accurate, especially when it came to some of his bonds in the house.
“I had a really crappy relationship with SJ (Sarah Jane) in the house.” Mitch told us. “It started off nice, but I didn’t really get along with her well and they didn’t show that at all - me talking about her in the diary room or anything like that.”
After key player Katie won the nominations challenge, she placed Nick, Melissa and Ari up for eviction.
As a Hail Mary move to save herself, Melissa voted for her fellow alliance member Nick to be evicted.
The lovable larrikin sadly ended up with the most votes and was sent packing; at least he got to return to the most important thing in his life, his dog Edwina... and his wife Lara, of course.
A day after Melissa voted her alliance-buddy Nick out of the house, the farm-girl was sent packing herself.
After "master manipulator" Ari won the nominations challenge, the law student placed Daniel, Melissa and "safe vote" Marley up for eviction.
While key player Daniel has certainly ruffled a few feathers around the house, the contestants saw Mel as more of a threat, voting her out of the competition.
After key player Daniel swindled his way into a fake alliance with the seemingly unbreakable trio: Katie, Marley and Jess, the real estate agent convinced basketballer Marley to place Katie up for eviction along with Charlotte and Ari.
In the end, Katie was too much of a threat to keep around the house and her fellow contestants booted her from the show.
Since leaving the social experiment, Katie dished to New Idea about her experience, revealing, “It was so much harder than I expected. You cannot prepare for that show. Big Brother throws so many twists and turns, it’s such an emotional roller coaster.”
