Big Brother Wiki

Amber Melissa Siyavus was a houseguest on Big Brother 8 (US).

Amber began the game a loyal member of the Late Night Crew, growing especially close to Jameka Cameron and Dustin Erikstrup. After Amber and the Late Night Crew turned on the Donatos, Amber became a frequent victim to Dick’s yelling and fights. Amber’s game began to crumble after Eric Stein and Jessica Hughbanks betrayed the Late Night Crew and evicted Dustin. Despite a potential plan to backdoor Daniele, Amber was left nominated alongside Zach Swerdzewski during week eight and was evicted by a vote of 3-1, placing 7th, and becoming the 3rd member of the jury.


Amber Siyavus (born March 17, 1980) (formerly Tomcavage before her divorce) is a cocktail waitress at Caesars Palace casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a single mother, and she often talks of her faith and her daughter, Lexi, in the house.
