Bradley's lucky streak is over

IT WAS fourth time unlucky for the latest Big Brother evictee Bradley Darke.

The checkout "geek" from Coraki, NSW was eliminated from the reality series last night after being nominated by his fellow housemates for the fourth time.

The 19-year-old made no apologies for his laziness around the house, which was the major reason behind his frequent eviction nominations.

"I just carried on how I normally do and that's just how it turned out, that I went home because I do not clean or cook," he said.

Sporting a new look and haircut, Darke said his time in the Big Brother house helped him to mature.

"I think I have matured a fair bit and I have gained a ton more confidence," he said.

"When they had the party for my birthday, that was probably the highlight from my time in the house. It was such an amazing, fun night. It was the peak of my Big Brother experience."

Darke will return home to Coraki before starting his university studies next year.

"I'll be heading back to work again so I'll be in the supermarket for the next couple of months at least," he said.

"I'll be studying a bachelor of communication.

"I had that picked out before I came on (Big Brother) but I think the things I have experienced on the show will kind of help me with the course."

He tips Brisbane copywriter Michael, who was saved from eviction after earning a massive 46 percent of the public vote last night in his first ever nomination, to win the show.

"He's a very genuine guy and I think that comes across fairly well to the public," Darke said.

"I think he'll win for sure.

"I also think it will be intriguing to see who is nominated tonight."

Instead of giving the nomination superpower to his crush Estelle, Darke gave the advantage to Melbourne musician Josh.

"I passed it on to Josh because I think he'll be the fairest person to have the superpower," he said.

"I don't think he'll use it for his own personal gain. I think he will pass it on to someone who is his friend and do the correct thing."

The Big Brother live nomination show airs at 7pm tonight on Nine/WIN.
