THE stars are aligning for Melbourne accounts manager Benjamin Norris to win tonight's Big Brother final.

The 32-year-old is the odds favourite to take out the $250,000 grand prize according to Sportsbet.

Norris is at 1.80 odds, followed by law student Estelle Landy at 2.30 and British beautician Layla Subritzky is the long shot at 4.50 odds.

Norris also has the blessing of the two latest evicted housemates Michael Beveridge and Zoe Westgarth.

"I came on to this show with Channel 9 saying it's less about airheads and more about talking about issues and if he can get out of here, win the show and become a high-profile gay couple (with his partner) and have a child then I think that's a win for everybody," said Beveridge.

Westgarth added: "I think he deserves it and I would love it for him to have this opportunity".

But as of Monday night's show the frontrunner in the lead by just one per cent of the public vote, meaning it could be anyone's race.

The Big Brother final airs tonight at 7pm on Channel 9/WIN.
