Big Brother fans are furious because the vote closes 18 seconds after Sophie Budack pleads her case to win

“I hope this thing isn’t rigged!” Big Brother fans outraged that the vote closes during the live final 18 seconds after Sophie Budack pleads to win

Fans were outraged after the vote closed just after housemate Sophie Budack pleaded her case to win Big Brother in the live final.

The 26-year-old completed her heartfelt final message to the public just 18 seconds before Sonia Kruger announced the vote was closed.

Her fans immediately went to social media to ask if the show had been spoofed, while others pointed out that their latest speeches should have come at the beginning of the long live episode.

“I feel a stunt. The vote closed when Sophie finished her plea. People could sit there and process Dan’s plea and still have time to vote for him, “one fan claimed.

Another added, “Well, there was no point in closing the vote while they were pleading [sic] to win.’

“Sophie JUST PUT and they immediately stopped voting,” said a third fan.

“I hope this thing isn’t rigged lol,” said a concerned fan.

“They should have done this [housemate] montages BEFORE the voting rules are closed, ”suggested another.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.

Meanwhile, other fans said that anyone who wanted to vote had long decided for the latest posts.

‘Yes it is [sic] stupid that they had to argue their cases when the lines closed, but I think we all made a decision, “said a Twitter user.

Chad Hurst was eventually crowned the winner of Big Brother 2020.
