Sara Lorraine Folino is a housemate from Big Brother 9.


Sara is a single, Australian party girl who's hoping there's a hunk lying in wait for her in the House. She loves going out and drinking, but is a bit of a lightweight. She once won an award at work for being the loudest person in her office.

Sara has never been in love or even had a serious relationship, so is getting anxious about finding 'the one'. She likes boys that look like they're in a band, and big muscles aren't her thing. People often tell her she looks like Angelina Jolie and she uses those looks to get what she wants. She's loud, brash and flirty, but says she wouldn't have sex in the House as it wouldn't be 'dignified'.

Sara had a rural upbringing in Melbourne and moved to London five years ago. She used to work in a bank, but landed a job at MTV which is much more up her street.

She thinks smoking should be allowed in public and that rapists should all be jailed for life. But she's not really into politics and is unsure who the current Prime Minister is. She is grumpy in the morning and needs at least eight or nine hours sleep. She never cleans.

Big Brother 9[]

Sara did not face the public vote until Week 11. She faced the public vote alongside Lisa and Nicole. On Day 79, Sara survived the public vote and Nicole was evicted from the House. The following week, face-to-face nominations took place putting Sara and Lisa up for eviction once again. On Day 86, Sara survived the public vote and Lisa was evicted from the House with 52.6% of vote. Sara finished the series in third place with 30.1% of the public vote, and left the House on Day 93.
