Big Brother winner fears she will have to join OnlyFans to survive


Two-time winner Reggie Bird says she no longer has any of her $250,000 prize money left

A former Big Brother star says she may have to join OnlyFans to survive as the cost-of-living crisis intensifies.

Reggie Bird, who bagged $250,000 in prize money during the 2003 and 2022 seasons of the Australian show, took to Instagram to decry supermarkets over the price of food.

She said she is “not built” for a career on the adult website, but as a mother of two teenage children, may not have any other choice.

“Please lower the cost of groceries. I’m not built for OnlyFans,” she wrote on Instagram, adding a praying emoji.

Many of Bird’s followers were quick to offer words of support, with Bachelor in Paradise star Mary Viturino commenting: “I hear you, sis”.

“You totally are! But yeah, they should reduce the cost of groceries,” one fan wrote.

Bird revealed last year she no longer had any of the $250,000 prize money left from when she first won Big Brother in 2003.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, she said her windfall was simply “all gone”, adding that her main motivation for returning for the 2022 season was to provide for her children.

“I’ve got to do this for my kids,” said Bird, who is mother to daughter Mia, 16, and son Lucas, 13.


Lucas suffers from has cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disorder that affects the lungs and digestive system.

Bird was reportedly ‘paid peanuts’ to appear on last year’s season on Channel Seven, receiving $170 a day rather than an up-front fee.

But the Hobart native lucked out by winning the show last July, becoming the first person to ever win Big Brother twice, taking home another $250,000 in prize money.
