Big Brother Wiki

Joanne Ashton was a housemate on Big Brother Australia 3.

Coming into Big Brother Australia 3 whilst in a 6-year relationship, Joanne's looks and intelligence quickly caught the attention of her housemates, finding herself the subject of flirtation from several male housemates, particularly Patrick Flanagan, Vincent Amato, and Saxon Small. Her general likeability and ability to flirt with her housemates allowed her to escape nomination until Week 7, where she began to develop a rivalry with Regina Bird over their shared interest in Saxon's friendship. Although Joanne was one of the more popular housemates of the series, the controversial nature of her flirtatious actions, combined with being up against the immensely popular Regina and Daniel McInnes for eviction, led to her being evicted with 86% of the public vote, the highest of any housemate in Big Brother Australia history.
