CORAKI checkout operator Bradley Darke will stay in the Big Brother house for at least another week.

The teen received the most votes from the public last night, but only narrowly avoided eviction in the closest ever vote in the history of the reality series.

Melbourne model Ryan was evicted, receiving just one percentage point less than Benjamin.

Ryan's eviction cuts short his romance with Estelle.

"She's an amazing girl," he told host Sonia Kruger.

"I walked in there and I just thought 'Yeah she's the one, she's awesome'. I really like her."

Kruger quizzed the 21-year-old on Bradley's feelings for Estelle, with whom he shared his first kiss.

"It was pretty hard to sit back and see that," Ryan said.

But he said there were no hard feelings.

"Bradley is just a funny guy. I've never met anyone like him in my life."

Ryan got one last chance to exert his influence on the Big Brother house by choosing to give Estelle the 'nomination superpower', the details of which will be revealed in tonight's nomination show.



The 18-year-old self-described geek with a stutter graduated from Trinity Catholic College, Lismore last year.

He works the checkout at his family's supermarket at Coraki during his gap year.

Evicted Ryan says he's never met anyone like Bradley in his life.
