Big Brother girls get the boot: Priya and intruders evicted

ORIGINAL Big Brother housemate and intruders Lina Grant and Penny Higgs were sent home in a triple, all-female eviction.

Adelaide teacher Malik was the first housemate of the 2014 season introduced to viewers and she was clearly disappointed to miss out on the reality show's grand final by the narrowest of margins.

"This is like the slip between the lip and the cup," she told host Sonia Kruger.

The 27-year-old made no apologies for stirring the pot.

"You have to have some sort of a strategy and I have been strategic since day one and I was proud to claim that," she said.

"I was stirring the pot, not always in a negative sense.

"If you do tell me something and say don't tell a single soul it won't go anywhere."

Intruder Lina Grant was the first to go tonight, followed by bubbly dancer Penny Higgs.

Both women spent 30 days in the house, entering as the noisy neighours in The Sanctuary before joining the original housemates.

Fans of Higgs cried out on social media, with many wishing she had been an original housemate.

Ryan Ginns, Travis Lunardi and Skye Wheatley are left to battle it out for the Big Brother crown tomorrow night.

At the end of tonight's episode Big Brother gave the three finalists 30 seconds to make their final pleas to the public about why they should win.

"I don't think I deserve to win more than Skye or Trav, but if I do I think the money will change my life," Ginns said.

"I'm already a winner. The difference between now and the money is just the money."

The Sunshine Coast surfer is still the favourite to take out the title and take home the $200,000 grand prize.

The voting results so far, also partially revealed tonight, show one of the finalists with a narrow lead of 37 percent, followed by the other two housemates on 33 percent and 30 percent of the public vote.
