Kathreya Kasisopa is a housemate from Big Brother 9.


Kathreya is Big Brother's first Thai housemate. She came to the UK from Thailand seven years ago to study, and has since become a British citizen.

Her main obsession is cookies. Kathreya says she's addicted to them and she carries a cookie jar with her wherever she goes. Her dream is to travel the world and taste cookies in every country. A Thai massage therapist, she would love to one day open her own Thai massage agency, or alternatively open her own restaurant as she's also passionate about cooking.

Kathreya is a Buddhist, believes strongly in Karma and will do anything to avoid an argument. She loves wearing bright clothing, and wears platform boots at all times to give her extra height as she is only 5ft tall. On the subject of her physical attributes, Kathreya likens her shape to a potato - "If you like jacket potato you will love me".

She's scared of the dark, heights and has a hatred of feet. She also doesn't take drugs or drink alcohol, and says that she doesn't really understand British humour. But, she's a romantic at heart - everyday she fills a lunchbox for her fiancé and on Valentines she even made him heart shaped sandwiches. Kathreya says she isn't doing Big Brother for the money - she just wants people to know who she is.

Big Brother 9[]

On Day 54, it was revealed to the House that Big Brother had caught seven housemates discussing nominations in secret code, so as a punishment they faced the public vote alongside Dale and Luke, who were already nominated for eviction; Kathreya was one of these seven housemates. Kathreya survived the public vote on Day 58 and Luke was evicted from the House. On Day 90, Kathreya was the thirteenth person to be evicted from the House after receiving 4.9% of the public vote to win, and finished in sixth place.
