TIM Dormer's dreams have come true with him being crowned the 2013 Big Brother winner.

The 29-year-old is $250,000 richer after winning tonight's grand final, beating beauties Jade Albany and Tahan Lew-Fatt.

"I don't know what to do with that; I'm going to need a bigger wallet," Dormer told host Sonia Kruger.

The cheeky housemate made it clear from the show's debut that he was a game-player whose aim was to win.

But only two percentage points separated Dormer from runner-up Albany.

Dormer received 36 percent of the public vote and was one of the show's most controversial characters, often playing pranks on his fellow housemates.

He survived 101 days in the isolation of the Big Brother house, cut off from friends, family, the news and social media.

He seemed genuinely upset about leaving the house, taking time to say goodbye to individual rooms.

Kruger also confirmed tonight that the show will return to Channel 9 next year.
