Timothy Philip "Tim" Dormer is the winner of Big Brother Australia 10. He later competed on Big Brother Canada 4 and Big Brother Australia 14.

He was originally a contestant on the Australian version of Big Brother, being voted the winner of Big Brother Australia 10 in 2013. In 2016, he along with Big Brother UK housemate Nikki Grahame was chosen to enter the Big Brother Canada house by the public as a "Wildcard Houseguest".

Upon entering the BBCAN Grand, Tim played up to the other houseguests that he had no idea how this version of Big Brother worked and that he had no intentions to win. In reality, he was an avid viewer and was trying his best to win. Most of the houseguests saw Tim as a place of advice, frequently going to him to ask for help. Tim was known for being able to convince people of doing his bidding and supporting his agenda. He and Cassandra were a duo who both were loyal to each other yet were playing each other throughout their stay. Despite being revealed as a threat in the second half of the game, Tim managed to survive until finale night, where he was evicted by Kelsey.

Tim is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in Big Brother history because of his unique and unpredictable gameplay, his ability to manipulate his competitors, as well as his capacity to succeed in all formats of the Big Brother franchise.

Tim

38, NSW

Tim won Season 10 of Big Brother Australia. He was also on BigBrotherCanada where he was placed third, despite having a target on his back the entire time. Tim made a huge splash last time he was in the house with a mouth bigger than his hair and his love for shit stirring. He was known as one of the most divisive contestants in the show’s history.

Currently a disability support care worker, Tim has not changed a bit. He’s still brutally honest and admits he is a little terrified at the lengths he will go to win this new format but assures that he has enough in his little bag of tricks to make it interesting.

He’s a master strategist and a cheeky larrikin, he’s regarded as one of the greatest players in Big Brother’s history due to his unique and unpredictable gameplay, even putting himself up for eviction at one point. He wants to be the first person in the history of the game world wide to win Big Brother twice. Tim has also appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, where he was runner-up.

Why did you want to return to the Big Brother house?

It’s a once in a lifetime experience that will now be my third time doing. After getting to the finale in Big Brother Canada in 2016 and forfeiting the final challenge, I feel I have unfinished business. I want to be the only person in the world to have won Big Brother twice! I want to show Australia how I have grown and changed since the first time playing, I’m older and wiser but will bring the same tenacious spirit.

What would you do differently this time around?

It’s such a different game now, when I played, I played big because I knew the audience would likely save me each week to keep me on the show. I think.

What do you feel is the advantage of being a returning housemate?

I think I have the record of being the only person in Australia who has lived in the Big Brother house for the longest time, so I have some experience with being cut off from the world in the pressure cooker that is this house.

Do you see any disadvantage to be a returning housemate?

I definitely will have a target on my back with the other players knowing my reputation for being a strategic mastermind who the Australian public already voted once to win. I will have to try convincing them that I have no idea what I’m doing this time around and win their trust with my charm!

What was your previous experience in the Big Brother house like?

It was so good. Challenging, but a dream come true.[1]
