Talia Rycroft Biography

Retrieved from
Talia isn’t your average 22-year-old woman. In fact, people are usually shocked to discover this blonde beauty works in construction and was a homeowner at just 19.
Smart, strong and confident, Talia is looking forward to smashing through more gender stereotypes in the Big Brother house. She may be young and look like a “girly girl,” but after growing up with two older brothers and managing a job site of 50 men, she can hold her own with the boys.
Talia’s career progression is a result of strong leadership and communication skills, which she believes will be some of her strengths in the house. She can’t handle people who are fake, who lie or create unnecessary drama, preferring to surround herself with positive energy.
Talia admits she is very strong-willed, especially in arguments, and thinks her stubbornness may lead to some tense moments with the other Housemates. She also has a rebellious streak and loves to break from the norm, saying she’s still a big kid at heart.
An adrenaline junkie and keen surfer, Talia is looking forward to getting stuck into the Challenges. She can’t wait to show Australia what she’s made of!
If she were to win Big Brother, Talia would invest the prize money and shout the other Housemates to a few cheeky bevs. [2]
