TORONTO – Sarah Hanlon, a worker at a hemp shop in Toronto, won the third season of Big Brother Canada on Wednesday night.

The 27-year-old, who described herself on the official website as “open-minded, goofy and smart,” won $100,000 cash, a $25,000 gift card from The Brick and a trip worth $10,000.

“I honestly am just shocked, and I never thought ever that I would ever do this,” Hanlon said. “I can’t believe it! It’s a dream come true!”

The finale of Big Brother Canada aired on Global. The entire cast of houseguests will reunite on Global’s The Morning Show on Thursday to reflect on their experiences.

Hanlon beat finalist Godfrey Mangwiza, a 22-year-old also from Toronto. He will go home with a $20,000 prize.

Fourteen other houseguests were eliminated from competition during the season.

On the Big Brother Canada website, Hanlon said if she won she would give some of the cash to people who helped her, including partner Scott.

“He helped me get through school,” she said. “I’d love to do the same for him.”

Last season’s winner was Jon Pardy of Newfoundland and season one winner was Nova Scotia teacher Jillian MacLaughlin.
