DAVID Hodis hopes to regain a sense of normality after more than two months in the competitive, pseudo-reality of Big Brother.

The Sydney radiologist was evicted last night, narrowly missing out on competing in the reality show's final week.

"I need to refresh my brain. My brain has seriously gone to mush," Hodis told APN.

"I need to recharge the batteries and take a few weeks to reflect on this whole experience.

"Last night I was up talking to my sister and best friend for most of the night. They left me with an hour to go, I put my head on the pillow and stared at the ceiling.

"I watched a bit of MMA fighting just because it was on TV. I don't even like MMA."

The 31-year-old said Ryan Ginns and Travis Lunardi will have to bond together as the final two male housemates.

According to SportsBet the two blokes are now the favourites to win the show over Gold Coast beauty Skye Wheatley and lovable intruder Penny Higgs.

"Ryan's biggest challenge will be the gamesmanship of Skye and Priya," he said.

"You need that boy talk in the house. We would switch off so often and talk about sports or kick the footy or jump around in the pool.

"I can confirm if two housemates are having a meaningful conversation which Skye might seem threatened by, she's not afraid to strip her clothes completely down and stand right next to them so it won't get aired."

Hodis confirmed he doesn't plan to grow back his beard, which he shaved off after two weeks in the Big Brother house, anytime soon.

"I had nine weeks or so without the beard (on the show)," he said.

"That's the guy who got through the majority of the game, so I'm going to respect that and stay somewhat clean shaven."

Three of the final six housemates will be sent packing in a massive eviction show on Tuesday night before the grand final.
