Emerald "Topaz" Brady is a houseguest on Big Brother Canada 1. While in the house, she had a flirtatious and romantic relationship with houseguest Alec Beall. She was also close friends with houseguest Gary Levy, and the two frequently gossiped with one another.

Even though Topaz did not end up in the Final Two, she is best remembered for her actions on finale night, when she accidentally cast her vote for Jillian MacLaughlin to win, when she meant to vote for her ally, Gary. This caused major controversy, and eventually, the producers showed her that she did indeed cast her vote for Jillian over Gary. This is the main reason why Jillian won Big Brother Canada 1 over Gary.


Emerald "Topaz" Brady is a 27-year-old Guyanese-Canadian dental assistant and student from Scarborough, Ontario. She describes herself as being fun, crazy, wild, smart, and interesting. She states she has been a fan of the series since the first US season, and cannot stand messy people.
