An Australian contestant on Slovenia's popular Big Brother reality TV show has claimed the grand prize this weekend:
"HE'S got a Big Brother house right at his doorstep, but Aussie Andrej Novak travelled all the way to Slovenia to compete on the reality TV series - and won.
The 27-year-old Gold Coaster took home €75,000 ($120,000) on claiming the top prize in the Central European nation's first BB series.
Novak, who has a Slovenian background, spoke mostly English in the house because he didn't feel confident using the native tongue.
Always a scene stealer, he was one of 12 housemates who entered the 300sq m house in the capital Ljubljana on March 17."
