Julia Nolan was a houseguest on Big Brother 17.

Julia was a part of the season's Twin Twist, along with her sister Liz. Liz and Julia compete/vote as a pair and switch every few days, with 15 minutes to update each other on what is going on within the house. The twins made it through the first five evictions, so they got to compete as two separate HouseGuests. She was aligned with Liz and Austin Matelson and was a part of the Sixth Sense and Scamper Squad alliances.

During Week 11 both Austin and Liz were nominated by Steve Moses for eviction. During the PoV competition, Julia chose to challenge Austin instead of Johnny Mac due to Vanessa convinced her that it was the only way she would not go up next to her sister. However, this backfired as Austin was able to remove himself from the block by winning PoV, leaving Julia as the replacement nominee. The twins decided that Liz had a better shot at winning the game than Julia, so the two of them asked the others to evict her despite not being the target.

The others honored their wish, and a unanimous 3-0 vote evicted Julia. She placed 6th and became the 6th member of the jury. On finale night, she voted for Liz to win.


Birthday: December 23, 1991

Tall, blonde, gorgeous.... And there's two of them! Julia and her twin sister, Liz, make quite the statement when they enter a room together. The twins do everything together, down to their matching breast augmentations, which were done on the same day. Julia is known as the feisty, more "tomboy" of the two. She's super athletic and loves surfing, rock climbing, soccer, and CrossFit. A bit of a man-eater, Julia says, "Liz dates for love, and I date for fun." Having overcome Leukemia when she was 6, Julia is definitely a fighter and will bring that mentality into the BB house and knows she has the will to get to the end, with or without her sister.
