Big Brother 'nice guy' Ed hopes Jade wins show's grand prize

THE first thing Ed Lower wanted to find out after leaving the Big Brother house was which team won the AFL grand final.

"The grand final was the main priority for me, I found that out last night, and then I found out about the Norm Smith Medal and then the Prime Minister," Lower said.

The 26-year-old has been in the isolation of the Big Brother house for 94 days and cast his vote in the September's Federal Election from a special polling booth set up in the house's diary room.

The former footy player was booted off the show last night after receiving a smaller percentage of the public vote than his on-screen girlfriend Jade Albany.

Lower was hard to pin down when it came to their relationship status but said he was keen to talk things over with the Ballina beauty once she exits the house.

"We're very keen to catch up and the beauty of it all is that I will see her in six days maximum," he said.

"It's not like it's going to be 10 weeks passing, I'm hoping she goes all the way."

Two of the remaining five housemates - Tim, Tahan, Jade, Boog and Drew - will be evicted from the show on Monday night. Then the final three housemates will find out which one of them wins the $250,000 grand prize on Wednesday's grand final.

But Lower's gut instinct tells him Darwin beauty Tahan Lew-Fatt will take out the show's $250,000 grand prize.

"I know a lot of people would think Tim and quite rightly so, but I think Tahan will win," he said.

"She isn't trying to fool anybody. She came into the house with a very strong game plan and that game plan is to win."
