This season of Big Brother Australia is in full swing, and this year, Big Brother had amped things up.
He’s also brought back fan favourites, like Farmer Dave Graham and Estelle Landy, and agents of chaos Tully Smyth and Drew Anthony, whose showmance remains one of the most notable in the show’s history.
It’s an undeniable uphill battle for our New Contenders, and for Aleisha Campbell, things were only intensified when she found herself in a messy situationship with the now-evicted challenge beast Joel Notley.
With Notley gone, Campbell’s eyes are once again on the prize, and as the second Head of House for the season, she’s well on her way to making friends and influencing her way to the Final Three.
In her pre-show Q&A, Campbell said that her strengths in the game would be her “social skills and being able to talk to pretty much anyone about anything”.
“I think I’m fun to be around and don’t take things too seriously,” she said.
At just 24, Campbell already has two successful businesses under her belt, and winning Big Brother Australia would be the icing on the cake.
Combined with her “secret weapon” of physical strength and athleticism — she’s previously travelled internationally while competing in BMX Australia — Campbell may be a triple threat when it comes to playing the social, strategic and physical games Big Brother is known for.
In fact, it’s just this kind of challenge that the young entrepreneur is looking for. Campbell said that she has “always wanted to go on Big Brother” ever since she was a child, because “it tests you, yet makes you enjoy and appreciate the little things in life”.
“When do you get to be in a house with 20 strangers from all walks of life, with no technology and contact to the outside world, it’s awesome!” she exclaimed.
Aside from meeting all the housemates, Campbell said she’s hoping Big Brother will assign her a “secret task”. On the other hand, she’s least looking forward to “being tested by Big Brother”.
Campbell is hoping to be remembered as a “fun, bubbly Energizer Bunny”, and said that she wants “to be able to make people laugh and smile” during her time in the house.
Does she have what it takes to go all the way? Only time will tell. Until then…
