Big Brother 2013: Favourite Sam Evans crowned the winner ahead of Dexter Koh
Tuesday 20 August 2013
Big Brother favourite Sam Evans has been crowned the winner of the reality TV show.
He beat Dexter Koh to claim the £100,000 prize after 68 days in the famous house.
Evans, 23, bowed his head in apparent astonishment as his victory was announced to massive cheers.
The Welshman, who admitted he felt "shaken" as he took the title, said he would give a quarter of his winnings to charity and a quarter of the prize money to his family. The rest he pledged to invest in his future.
"I just can't believe it," he said, insisting the experience was "amazing".
Koh, who survived seven evictions, said he could not understand why the public kept him in the competition.
"I have no clue," the 28-year-old from Liverpool said. "I'd really like to know."
Evans emerged victorious after Charlie Travers became the first to leave the house during tonight's show, putting her in fifth place.
The 26-year-old, from Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, said "love you" to her housemates before walking out to huge cheers.
Travers, who went on to Big Brother with her mother Jackie, told of the "love triangle" in the house but said she was not interested in either Koh or Callum Knell's affection.
"I don't think that Dexter's feelings are genuine," she said.
"A lot of his actions don't match his words. Callum, I think his feelings were genuine, bless him."
Identical twins Jack and Joe Glenny, 18 - who appeared on the show as one contestant - were given the boot soon after Travers, finishing fourth.
The duo, from Cheshunt in Hertfordshire, were followed by socialite Gina Rio, 24, from King's Cross in central London, who said she grew to like her housemates and claimed the experience had changed her.
"At first a lot of people were saying to me 'you've really changed since the girl who walked through those doors on launch night' and I thought that was quite rude," she said.
"I was like, 'you didn't know me before I came in so, why are you saying this?' But then I actually noticed, myself."
