Big Brother

Who wins Big Brother Australia 2022? We have the inside scoop and it's not going to be an OG!

Honestly, we're not surprised.

The winner of Big Brother Australia 2022 appears to have been leaked, but will it be one of the BB royalty or a newbie taking home the crown?
It would make sense that one of the former housemates – including stars like Reggie Bird, Anthony Drew and Tim Dormer – would have the inside knowledge to get ahead in the competition.
But maybe the newbies will come in with fresh eyes and manage to outdo them, especially with the new Survivor-style format.

Well, new intel suggests that a fresh face has got it in the bag, as it appears Jaycee Edwards is poised to take top spot in the finale.
How do we know? For years sites like Sportsbet and TAB have been predicting who will win reality TV shows – and more often than not they get it right.
Sportsbet has predicted the winners of everything from The Bachelor to Survivor, so it's no wonder fans are convinced the site has already leaked the winner of Big Brother 2022.
After all, betting sites are rumoured to be given the inside scoop on who wins shows long before they air to make sure they can adjust their odds accordingly.

With Jaycee currently sitting with winning odds of $1.70, we have a feeling he just might be our winner this year.
As for the runners up, Sportsbet is currently predicting an OG and a newbie will take out the second and third places respectively.
At present, third season winner Reggie Bird sits in the runner up position, with odds of $2.10, while Big Brother super-fan Johnson Ashak is in third place, with odds of $6.00, but expect that to shift as we get closer to the finale!

While Jaycee and Johnson are fresh to the game, runner-up Reggie has already had experience winning Big Brother.
Reggie won the show's third season back in 2003, charming the public with her down-to-earth nature and small-town background.
Originally hailing from Tasmania, the mum-of-two returned to the series this year after her kids insisted she take the chance while she can.
Just a year after her first win, Reggie was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye condition that has left her legally blind.

"When Seven asked me to enter the BB house again, I couldn't turn it down," she told Woman's Day.
"With my eyesight deteriorating at the pace it was, I decided it's now or never. The kids convinced me – they're very persuasive!"
Sadly Reggie will one day lose her sight permanently, but fans are hopeful she'll bag another BB win before that day comes.
