Chrissie Swan is the runner-up of Big Brother Australia 3.

Initially one of the quieter housemates of Big Brother Australia 3, Chrissie quickly emerged as a fan favourite after she confronted Ben Archbold over his antagonistic behaviour that had left many housemates upset. Her infectious laugh, likeable personality, and close friendships with Daniel McInnes and Regina Bird further cemented her fan favourite status, and she received immense sympathy from both her housemates and the Australian public after she heard a cameraman make an inappropriate comment about her weight. She would end up being part of the first ever all-female Final 2, where she finished runner-up to close friend Regina.
