Travis was born in 1975 and is a truck driver from Pakenham, Victoria, who works for Safeway. He describes himself as straight-up, honest and caring. He was a child model and is currently married with a son named Jesse, who was born with a rare condition in which he cannot grow teeth. Travis missed Jesse's third birthday on Day 84. Travis was chosen for the 2004 Big Brother house but chose not to enter as his wife was pregnant at the time. He had long been considered a favourite to win this series of Big Brother, however, two weeks before the finale, there was a lot of backlash with speculation as to whether his "ocker" character was genuine. On Day 99, Travis was evicted with 18% of the merged save votes, finishing in third place.
