Big Numbers For Big Brother On Prime!


Last night’s Big Brother Final peaked on Prime with 36.2% of the New Zealand audience watching Trevor become an instant millionaire.

After three months, fifteen evictions and controversies aplenty, Trevor won Big Brother 2004, taking home the largest cash prize in Australian television history. Trans Tasman audiences rewarded Trevor for ‘being himself' in the house.

This life–changing moment was fuelled further when Trevor used the eviction stage to propose to his girlfriend Brea. The usually roaring Big Brother audience was ‘shooshed’ to silence as Trevor went down on his knee and popped the question.

Trevor’s tear filled triumph was two fold and well responded to by New Zealand audiences. The Big Brother Final averaged a 15 share last night on Prime, New Zealand’s fastest growing television network!
