Episode Recap

The three remaining guys - Sam, Ben and Mick, come out dressed in togas. They are to participate in a challenge where they must bite into a hanging lamb carcass while handcuffed. Whoever can deposit the most amount of gnawed meat into their bowl wins. Gross. Mick says it was probably one of the most disgusting things he's ever done. Ben wins with 574 grams. He wins "the latest in 4 wheel technology" - a remote control car.

The cast members discuss their nervousness about Sam learning the truth. Some are worried, some are excited.

When the final vote is about to occur, Mark re-introduces all the eliminated contestants, who will decide the final winner. The contestants all get to ask the final three a question. Plentiful platitudes follow. The final three find themselves justifying why they each should win, and recalling some of the more extreme moments in the house. The votes are not anonymous this time around - each person must hold on to their's and read it out themselves.

Rima: She voted for Mick, because he never stopped playing the game. Mary: She voted for Sam, because he was so nice to her. Mule: He voted for Sam, because he's the only one he could trust. Billy: He voted for Ben, because he made him laugh. Betty: She voted for Mick, because he was the most real. Tiffany: She says "payback time", then the image freezes and the episode is "to be continued"!!! Crikey!
