Notes[edit]

  • ^Note 1 : Over the course of the first week, the housemates were given several opportunities to win immunity from the first round of nominations. On launch night, Amanda and Jess won immunity. Later that night, they awarded Maggie immunity. On Day 2, Malika won immunity. After the men entered, they were given the opportunity to win one more immunity pass. On Day 5, Shane J won immunity. As a further twist, the nominations were face-to-face, and only the female housemates could nominate.
  • ^Note 2 : As the men won this week's task, only they were eligible to nominate. Ashley also won immunity during a task, meaning she could not be nominated. After winning the Big Brother's Driving School task, Ann and Daniel were given the opportunity to save a housemate from eviction and replace them with another housemate. They chose to save Daniel, and replaced him with Maggie.
  • ^Note 3 : The women and men separately were asked to discuss and nominate two housemates of the opposite gender to face eviction. The men nominated Amanda and Ann, while the women nominated Daniel and John. After the women and men competed in a series of tasks, the women were declared the winners and were granted the right to evict one of the two nominated men. They decided to evict John.
  • ^Note 4 : As the women won this week's task, only they were eligible to nominate in a face-to-face nomination.
  • ^Note 5 : The public were voting to win rather than to save. Shane J/Courtney won with 49.43% of the final vote, whilst Ann was runner-up with 39.50%. Shane L was third with 7.42%, Jess was fourth with 2.75%, and Wayne finished fifth with 0.90%, however none of these figures take into account the vote freezes between each position.
