It’s unlikely that big names like Chrissie Swan or Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald will return. Yet, numerous other fan favourites haven’t made their second appearance on Big Brother Australia (yet).

From earlier seasons, the names that popped up the most on BB forums were Sara-Maree Fedele and Blair McDonough.

If we’re talking about more recent Big Brother seasons (10 to 13), Skye Wheatley, Danny Hayes and Ben “From Brisbane” Zabel are all major hopes for avid fans.

One r/BBAU user predicted an “All-Star” season made up of only “new era” returning housemates. And well, that’s a choice IG!

One of the more bizarre suggestions was to “bring back all of the people who got sent home first”. So uh, Big Brother Losers season?
