Anita entered the Big Brother house on day 38 of the first season, and lasted almost three weeks before being evicted by her fellow housemates.
While she made history as Australia’s first ever Big Brother intruder, she wasn’t alone.
At the time, she entered the house with fellow intruder Rachel Corbett, who has also carved out a career in the spotlight.

Rachel is now a regular panelist on The Project as well as a popular podcaster.
In an interview in 2009, Rachel admitted that she was trying to distance herself from her reality TV past to further her career in television and radio.
‘It’s part of my past that I’ve tried to distance myself from, and have so far succeeded,’ she told Radio Info.
Big Brother was recently rebooted by Channel Seven with a brand new format and style.
