Big Brother's Lawson: Candice won't speak to me

BIG Brother 'love rat' Lawson Reeves' girlfriend is refusing to speak with him after his reality TV cheating scandal.

The 23-year-old Perth sparky was evicted from the reality show last night, mostly likely because of viewer backlash to his two-timing ways with fellow housemate Cat Law.

Reeves has been seeing the Melbourne midwife for the past month despite going on the show while still in a relationship with his girlfriend of three years Candice Leeder.

"I've got to cop it on the chin and take responsibility for my actions," he told APN.

"I want to move forward and try to soldier on."

After his eviction Reeves told host Sonia Kruger he was ready to face the music, but so far Leeder is refusing to speak with him.

"Candice doesn't want to speak to me," he said.

"She may never want to speak to me, which is completely understandable.

"She may just need a bit of time; she's in the middle of exams at the moment. If she does decide that she wants to speak to me then I'm ready to listen to her."

His very public infidelity has overshadowed the amateur magician's lighter moments in the Big Brother house.

"I learned a lot about myself," he said.

Reeves tips Ryan Ginns, Skye Wheatley or David Hodis to win the show.

"Ryan is just the coolest cat; you can't really fault him," he said.

"He's a really funny, great, genuine guy. I do hope he wins it and beats Skye."

Gold Coast beauty Wheatley has admitted to developing a new crush on Ginns, following flings with intruder Leo (real name Ryan Burke) and previously evicted housemate Jake Richardson.

Reeves believes it's all part of her strategy to win the game.

 "I know Ryan's not interested but I think Skye's thinking Ryan is her biggest threat, so why not bunk up with the person who could possibly beat her?" he said.

"She's all right but I don't want her to win - her head will explode."
