Big Brother Winner is a Grandma!!!

As I mentioned before on my last post that I do not watch this show,, Just sharing the First Old Contestant who won the Big Brother Show..

After eight years, 146 housemates and numerous controversies, reality TV show Big Brother has come to an end with the competition's oldest contestant taking out the title.

Grandmother Terri beat bricklayer Rory, 22, and law student Ben, 19, to win the final series of the Network Ten program and $250,000 cash.

The 52-year-old  Granny said she was shocked and burst into tears.

"I just cannot thank you enough," Terri said when her name was announced.

"That an older woman like me could have done this is absolutely astounding."

Terri, who was not well-liked by the other housemates in the beginning, described her first two weeks in the house as an "absolute nightmare".

She went on to become the favourite in the end.

Terri said she felt sad that runner-up Rory, who was known for running around the girls in the house wearing a G-string, didn't win any of the cash.

After 85 days of being locked in the Big Brother compound the final three contestants were shown news footage of what had been happening in the outside world including skyrocketing petrol prices, sports results and Jane McGrath's death - which brought Terri to tears.

Big Brother producers announced last week that this series would be the last.

It came after poor ratings and criticism of new hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O.

Producer Endemol Southern Star believes the format could be revived.

The Nine Network has signalled it may look into taking it on but in a very different format.

Over the past eight years Big Brother has received its fair share of criticism and has witnessed a number of controversies.

In 2006, then-prime minister John Howard called for the show to be dumped after the infamous "turkey slap" incident in which a female housemate was pinned down while two males rubbed their crotch in her face.

In 2005, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) found the show had breached its code on two occasions.   Yahoo 7

GOOD ON HER!!!!!! and Bye Bye Big Brother...
