  • Australian born Thomas Haynes has continued to showcase his wide range of talents around the world since childhood when his first modelling campaign appeared on billboards across Europe. Since then he’s gone from strength to strength in diverse roles spanning across all mediums. At just sixteen his talents took Thomas to America where he would spend an eventful six years, graduating high school as homecoming king and being named an honorary Texas citizen by George Bush Jr. While there he earned a basketball scholarship to Tarleton State University and was voted the International Student Body President before graduating with a pre-med degree. Returning to Australia and continuing his pursuit of everything his talents would allow Thomas dabbled in film, radio, modelling and more, winning several awards and nominations along the way before his breakout role on the hit show ‘Big Brother’. Thomas then landed the role of host for extreme sports show ‘All Stars TV’ and appeared on a variety of other Australian shows including co-hosting ‘Telethon’ before making his acting debut in earnest with ‘Girls Night In’. Always wanting more, Thomas is continuously developing his versatility and skills working with some of the very best the world has to offer. Screen combat training with Hollywood veteran Richard Norton led to a role in the US short film ‘Under Kings’ where Thomas impressed and was subsequently cast in ‘Black Jacks’ and ‘Just Stay’, this success prompting him to relocate from Melbourne to Los Angeles in 2014.moreless

    • Thomas: (on Bodie's fashion sense) There’s style, and then there’s Bodie.

    • Thomas: (asked who he thinks is playing the game in the 2007 series of "Big Brother") I honestly didn't think anybody was playing the game. This far in, if they're playing the game, I hope they win, because it's too much effort to keep up that sort of an act for so long. When I first walked in I was really self conscious and didn't want to do anything embarrassing or cause any conflict on the outside, but after about a week, you sort of forget about it. I can't sit around all day worrying about what other people think.

    • Thomas: (on who he thinks will win the 7th season of "Big Brother") It's hard to pick between Travis, Aleisha and Billy. That's just from my sort of impression of them in the house. I'd love to see Jamie win because he's a good mate of mine in there. Anyone of those top three would be deserving of it for sure.

    • Thomas: (asked if he thought the "Big Brother" producers tried to make him look more egotistical than he really is) I don't think the producers can be guilty of anything really. At the end of the day you just get bored in there, and there are mirrors everywhere in the house and I walked around and I'm sure I looked at myself plenty. It wasn't the only thing I did in the house, but I don't have many particular exciting things about me, so I guess that's all they could find to show.

    • Thomas: (on his flirty behaviour) That's just who I am. I'm a flirty, kind of happy person. All of it is just a bit of a laugh and a fun time to me, it's not anything serious. I wasn't in there (the Big Brother house) looking for a relationship and I wasn't in there thinking that there was anything serious going on. For me it was just passing the time.
