Bradley emerges from the Darke

THE nation saw first- hand on Wednesday night the transformation of local geek and Big Brother contestant, Bradley Darke.

The 19-year-old from Coraki appeared in Wednesday night's fin-ale of the series, dancing, rapping, conga-line dancing and smooth-talking with the ladies.

When asked by Sonia Kruger about his apparent transformation into a "ladies man" and whether he really has been receiving a few girls' phone numbers, Bradley said: "It's true, I have. It's going very, very well for me Sonia ... thanks for asking."

He even jokingly hit on the host.

Fellow housemate Josh Moore, who's been credited with Bradley's transformation to a playboy, then joked, "(Bradley's) like Quagmire out of Family Guy".

Estelle Landy, who was the bearer of Brad-ley's first real kiss in the house, said after the show, "Tell you what, that boy is amazing."

"To have seen his transformation from start to finish (was amazing).

"I always have a lot of time for Bradley. He's a beautiful eccentric soul. It was so good to see him rocking out last night."

Benjamin Norris was crowned the winner of the 2012 series.
