Baldivis local and former Survivor contestant Luke Toki wins Celebrity Big Brother
Baldivis local Luke Toki has finally taken home a television competition title, winning this year’s season of Celebrity Big Brother.
The two-time Survivor contestant and self-proclaimed king of the jungle took out the crown on Tuesday night, winning $100,000 for his chosen charity, the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“I finally have done it, I have won something and thank you to everyone that supported me,” Mr Toki said.
“Thanks to you, Ellie and Josh, I will remember this moment forever. I love you.
“I get to go home and tell the kids Dad won,” he told host Sonia Kruger.
The Big Brother champ went into the competition for his kids, Lennox, 10, Nate, seven, and Madeline, two, whom he shares with his wife, Mary.
His daughter Madeline has cystic fibrosis, which Luke says was the main reason for the PCHF being his chosen charity.
“They’re helping to fund world-class research and care to help these kids get well and stay well,” Mr Toki said.
“The prize money will help improve treatment outcomes for WA kids, including those living with cystic fibrosis like my daughter Maddie.”
This is the first television competition Mr Toki has won, finishing seventh in the 2017 season of Survivor and coming fourth on his second time on the show in 2019.
Though he didn’t win either season, the audience favourite still went home $500,000 richer after a GoFundMe campaign was started on his behalf.
