Big Brother Wiki

Amanda Elizabeth Craig was a houseguest on Big Brother 4 (US).

Amanda entered the house along with the other exes as apart of the X-Factor twist, and Amanda was faced with her ex fiancé Scott Weintraub. She was the first one targeted when Nathan Marlow won the first HOH competition and put her on the block against fellow ex Jee Choe. The Elite Eight considered sparing Amanda to turn on Scott after Dana Varela won the Power of Veto, however when he was expelled from the house, Amanda's fate was sealed as she became the first person to be evicted in a 9-0 vote, officially placing 12th.


Amanda Craig (born 1978) was a 25-year-old bar manager from Chicago, Illinois. Amanda's ex-boyfriend, Scott Weintraub, was also a HouseGuest this season due to the "X-Factor" twist.
