Episode Guide

  • Day 100 - The Finale
    8/15/05
    9.5
    The Grand Finale, which began with a tap performance from all the evicted housemates and ended with the crowning of Greg (and thus both the Logans) as the winner of Big Brother 2005.
  • Day 99 - The Final Sunday Eviction
    8/14/05
    10
    The last eviction of 2005 saw the final three being cut down to two as Vesna was evicted, to the joy of some fans and the dismay of others.
  • Day 97 - Friday Night Live - The Prize Fight
    This special version of FNL saw Gretel entering the arena to oversee the activities as the housemates fought to earn back all of the prize money that had been lost in fines over the past three months. They had to overcome bungee cords, boxes of bugs, fear of heights, and some rapid-fire trivia to achieve their goal, and by the end of the night they had reclaimed $236,000 of the $400,000 lost.moreless
  • Day 93 - The Final Countdown (Special)
    The purpose of this final-week special was twofold. First, viewer-submitted questions were picked out of a hat and posed to the Housemates. Secondly, we saw the entry of special guest intruder Nadia (winner of last year's BB UK) into the house, to spice things up a bit for the final week.moreless
  • Day 92 - Live Eviction #12

    With only 8 days left, Melanie was the latest housemate to be evicted, with 59% of the vote. This brought the house down to its final three - Greg, Vesna, and Tim.
  • Day 90 - Friday Night Live #13
    8/5/05
    7.8
    A very special episode of Friday Night Live. Instead of the housemates competing against each other for the usual rewards, the four remaining housemates teamed up to take on a team of "All-Star" housemates: Jess from Series 2, Jo from Series 3, and Wesley and Paul from Series 4. FNL co-hosts (and former housemates) Bree and Fitzy also joined in for one of the rounds. The show also took place with a live audience in attendance, a first for FNL. The reward was a cash prize of $20,000. The All-Stars made a clean sweep, winning all three rounds. The housemates weren't particularly upset however; they returned to the house afterwards to find that Big Brother had provided them with a dinner of pizza, Pringles, icecream, and, of course, alcohol. And with only 10 days left of Big Brother 2005, this was also the last proper episode of FNL for this year.moreless

    This year's batch of new housemates enter the house. We find out that one (or, rather, two) housemates are identical twins, Greg and David, known together as "Logan". Their secret task is to trick the others into thinking there is only one of them; at all times one will be in the house and the other will be in a special isolation room. They will be switched at random times by Big Brother. It is also revealed that the million dollar prize may not quite turn out to be that as the housemates will be fined for breaking rules, meaning the eventual winner may be receiving substantially less than they thought!moreless
