Everything you need to know about the Big Brother housemates

Big Brother 2023

Over 80 cameras and microphones are ready to capture their every move

Big Brother Australia is set to return on Monday, November 6 at 7:30 pm for a new season packed with curveballs and twists. 

Fifteen new housemates are entering the house to play the game as each will try to get their hands on the $100,000 cash prize.

Housemates will be cut off from the outside world in a custom-built house, fitted with over 80 cameras and microphones recording their every move for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Meet the housemates below:

AnnaSophia – 30, NSW, Luxury Fashion Manager

AnnaSophia is from the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Likeable and witty, she loves to have a laugh, especially at herself. Now selling high-end luxury fashion, she dresses impeccably, flirts up a storm and causes mischief wherever she can.

After attempting to live with friends, but finding them too annoying, AnnaSophia now lives at home with her parents. It’ll be a big adjustment for her inside the Big Brother
House as it doesn’t take much for someone to irritate or annoy her.

Annelise – 24, QLD, Pilates Instructor / Dancer

Annelise says she is an overthinker with a stubborn side when she feels she’s not being heard, she admits to sometimes cutting people off when they talk so she doesn’t forget what she wants to say.

She plans on playing hard-to-get while in the House. Annelise describes herself as “the friend that you send up to the bouncer to get you to the front of the queue” and is weary of falling hard in the Big Brother House. A strong believer in monogamy, she knows if she makes a connection with someone, she’s in trouble.

Dion – 26, VIC, Lighting Designer

Something of an enigma, Dion is a charismatic, proud Fijian Indian from Melbourne who lives his life to the fullest. He’s worked hard to pave the way for his dream career as a lighting designer for big stadiums and music events.

Ready to cause a bit of chaos, Dion will walk into the House and no doubt stir the pot right from the get-go, but he’ll be relying on his charm to ensure he’s forgiven for his antics.

Graciemae – 24, NSW, Personal Assistant

Big Brother

Describing herself as the mum from Meet the Fockers, Graciemae believes she may be part witch, practising as a psychic. She draws from her young-spirited parents, who she believes may have passed on some of their natural therapy to her, with her mum having her pull angel cards from the age of five.

Jake – 25, VIC, Carpenter

Big Brother

Jake is a high-energy, confident chippy with a goofy side. While admittedly cocky and known to play up his looks, Jake is happy to be the butt of a joke and knows how to make girls laugh.

Coming from an Italian and Maltese background, he is very close with his family, often making homemade salami and wine with his mum and restoring cars with his dad.

Josh – 28, NSW, Traction Linesman

Big Brother

Growing up as a country boy, Josh is a chiselled tradie with a love for football, sports and the gym. His passion for fitness and a diet that consists of sardines and lamb hearts keeps him competitive, a trait which will work to his advantage in the House.

Josh doesn’t shy away from new things or being outside his comfort zone. He will give anything a crack and loves a woman with similar confidence; his ideal girl is a bit of a tomboy with good banter.

Lewis – 26, VIC, Carpenter

Big Brother

Lewis is a carpenter from Melbourne who is described by his friends as a “life enthusiast”. A happy and charismatic guy who likes to challenge the heterosexual male norms, Lewis is a tradie and a footballer who loves to paint his nails and play Harry Styles on repeat.

Constantly on the move and working outdoors along the coast, Lewis says he “works to live rather than lives to work”. He has a van that he’ll sometimes travel in and live out of, so his ideal girl must be a fellow adventure lover and go-getter.

Louis – 24, VIC, Social Media Manager

Big Brother

Louis is an AFL player and model from Melbourne. Not afraid to show a little vulnerability, Louis is comfortable in his skin and doesn’t shy away from poking fun at himself.

One to fall in love easily, Louis says he “can’t kiss someone and walk away”, so any romance in the House will be the real deal. Prepared to conquer all the challenges while in Big Brother’s House, Louis isn’t here to make friends and will do anything to win.

Luke – 33, NSW, Tradesman

Sensitive, cheeky prankster Luke is a real Aussie bloke’s bloke who grew up close to the beach and will find it easy to get along with almost everyone in the Big Brother House.

When he’s not working with his family, Luke loves to mentor and give back through coaching under 14s football, as well as enjoying rugby league and surfing. He admits that he gets a little preoccupied during footy season, leaving little time to date.

Minee – 22, WA, Model

Big Brother

Starting modelling as a child, Minee was bullied for missing so much school growing up. She now loves to help those around her feel comfortable and confident, being sure to compliment people and make them feel good about themselves. She admits she can be tough to be around if she doesn’t get adequate rest or gets a little hangry.

Quan – 33, VIC, Policy Manager

Big Brother

Quan is a Government Policy Manager from Victoria who came to Australia when she was eight. She is Chinese, grew up in Vietnam and found her first few years in Australia quite difficult as she didn’t speak English and was bullied.

Quan has gotten into trouble in the past for being judgmental and not caring what anyone thinks about her, saying she has a bit of a ‘bogan side’. Her dad was quite strict while she was growing up, so Quan would sneak out late at night with her friends to have fun.

Tay & Ari – 20 & 23, QLD, Social Media Influencer

Big Brother

Glam pocket-rocket Tay is a beautician, influencer and social media model from the Gold Coast.

Career-driven and fashion-conscious, Tay has gained a large social following for her fashion and beauty looks.

Fresh-faced photography student Ari is a social media influencer from the Gold Coast.

Half of the troublesome duo who love to party, Ari thinks her fellow Housemates may underestimate her and she’s ready to prove them wrong.

Taylah – 27, VIC, Sheep Farmer

Big Brother

A self-proclaimed bogan princess, Taylah is a sheep farmer from Victoria who is ready to take on anything thrown her way. Taylah has a keen eye for fashion with a Kim Kardashian glam about her, but is a country girl at heart. She’s a single mum to the love of her life, four-year-old Charlie.

During COVID lockdown, Taylah created TikTok videos with modern-day relationship advice that resulted in her being named ‘TikToks Big Sister’. She plans to use this to her advantage in the House, being able to support her Housemates while actually just manipulating them to further her game.

Zach – 22, VIC, House Painter

Based in small country town Colac, Victoria, Zach says he has been going through a “dry spell” due to the limited population.

Despite being a house painter by trade, he tells girls that he’s a dolphin trainer at Sea World. Completely committed to the lie, he’s changed his occupation on his social media and dating profiles to reflect his meticulously crafted story.

Big Brother Australia premieres November 6, 7:30 pm on Seven and 7plus.
