  • Quotes

    • Aleisha: (on fellow "Big Brother" housemate, Billy) Billy was my distraction from the outside, which I needed because I have a very close family. From the minute he walked in, I knew he was going back overseas so I wasn't thinking too much about things.

    • Aleisha: (on fellow "Big Brother" housemate, Billy) I definitely had feelings for him, otherwise I wouldn't have been kissing him, but I never let it get out of control because it's not reality in there. He isn't really my type, looks-wise, either. He's a pretty boy and I want to cut his hair off!

    • Aleisha: (on continuing her relationship with Billy out of the "Big Brother" house) I would say our relationship probably won't last. But I won't rule it out yet. I just want to go back to Cobram and hang out with my friends and family. I'm sure I can go a little while without seeing him.

    • Aleisha: In six months, four people who I was very close to died. Then my dad committed suicide and my sister [Kimberley] became very sick with cancer. It was pretty much two to three years of sickness and death. I was just always positive throughout it. I look at my life and think, 'There are people ouit there who are worse off than me.' I have a great life.

    • Aleisha: (to Billy, on their relationship) Just one thing I ask. Don't look at this whole experience as what you felt in here was because you were in here. Because all you are really, is in a house.

    • Aleisha: (on her father, who passed away in 1993) Even though I didn't really know him that well, you always imagine that you will. You always think, 'One day we'll have a relationship'.

    • Aleisha: (on her relationship with Billy while in the "Big Brother" house) I like him, I do really like him. I take it for what it is in here and then I'll just wait for what happens out there. There's no point cementing it.

    • Aleisha: (speculating how "Big Brother" would end) There's two weeks to go, and only six Housemates left. So there'll be a double next Sunday, leaving four. A double the following Sunday night, leaving two Housemates for the finale the next night. See, I can be smart sometimes. I can surprise you.

    • Aleisha: (on her underdog status) I prefer to be underestimated.

    • Aleisha: I'm the ditzy blonde country bumpkin with the bogan accent.

    • Aleisha: (asked what the topic would be if she ever appeared on a talk show) I'd never be on one, but "I'm cheating with my brother's ex-girlfriend's mother's uncle's son" could be fun.

    • Aleisha: (on the best piece of advice someone's ever given her) Every 60 seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you never get back.

    • Aleisha: (on loyalty in the Big Brother house) You can't trust anyone but yourself, but you can trust me.

    • Aleisha: Love's confusing when you're young.

    • Aleisha: (when asked who her hero is) Captain Planet because he's going to take pollution down to zero.

    • Aleisha: How did the blonde try to kill a bird? She threw it off a cliff. It's so funny… because birds fly.

    • Aleisha: (on boys in the gym) Tell me when all the shirts come off and I'll come over and have a look.
