Big Brother Wiki

Amanda Lynn Hansen was a houseguest on Big Brother 9 (US).

A polarizing personality, Amanda’s flirtatious and gossipy nature led to conflict between her and many of the other houseguests including her soulmate. Despite winning the first Head of Household and creating an alliance with Matt McDonald and Natalie Cunial, Amanda and Alex Coladonato were put on the block in week two alongside their allies. Although Amanda continued to campaign throughout the week, her and Alex were evicted by a vote of 3-0, placing 12th.
