Neda Kalantar was a contestant on Big Brother Canada 2. Regarded as one of Big Brother's best strategic players, Neda's large knowledge of the game and her subtle strategy has led her to be compared to other heavily regarded strategic players, such as Dan Gheesling. Following the finale, in which she was evicted in third place, all past houseguests admitted they would've voted for her had she made it to the final two.

She began playing a very quiet game, and received almost no airtime at the beginning. However, during Week 5, when Canada was HOH, she and her number one ally Jon Pardy took control of the house with their alliance, the Sloppy Seconds, comprising of the remaining players who were against the First Five. From here on out, Neda and Jon controlled the entire house. However, at the Final Three, Jon won the final HOH and cut Neda loose, due to the fact that Neda would gain every jury vote and everybody would lose to her, making Neda the sixth and final member of the jury.


Neda Kalantar was born in September 17, 1991 in Tehran, Iran but raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before entering the house she was a fashion stylist and was a superfan of the show when she was young.

During Big Brother Canada 2, she quickly formed a strong bond with Jon Pardy, quickly becoming best friends during their first week in the house. After only a month out of the house, their friendship turned into an actual relationship, and soon after, they moved in together. They are still together more than a year after.

  • Neda was the third female player on Big Brother Canada to win the power of veto.  
  • Neda was the first HouseGuest to win Head of Household twice in Big Brother Canada 2.
    • She was also the first HouseGuest to win Head of Household back-to-back.
    • Both these times her HOH week was abbreviated and never got any of the priviliges of winning the Head of Houshold other then being able to put someone up.
  • Since the end of Big Brother Canada 2 in May 2014, she has been in a relationship with fellow houseguest and winner Jon Pardy.
    • They've been living together in Toronto.
  • Big Brother 17 winner Steve Moses indirectly mentioned her eviction in an interview with Entertainment Tonight because he pulled the same move Jon did in her eviction to Neda's counterpart Vanessa Rousso who is regarded as one of the best female houseguests to play Big Brother.
