Emerald "Topaz" Brady is a houseguest on Big Brother Canada 1. While in the house, she had a flirtatious and romantic relationship with houseguest Alec Beall. She was also close friends with houseguest Gary Levy, and the two frequently gossiped with one another.

Even though Topaz did not end up in the Final Two, she is best remembered for her actions on finale night, when she accidentally cast her vote for Jillian MacLaughlin to win, when she meant to vote for her ally, Gary. This caused major controversy, and eventually, the producers showed her that she did indeed cast her vote for Jillian over Gary. This is the main reason why Jillian won Big Brother Canada 1 over Gary.

Trivia

  • Topaz had caused controversy on Finale night when she claimed that she mistakenly voted for Jillian MacLaughlin to win instead of Gary Levy. She was not allowed to change her vote, and this ultimately cost Gary the win.
    • She is the first houseguest to ever do that in Big Brother history. She would later be followed by American celebrity houseguest Metta World Peace, however, his voting mistake was during an eviction and not finale. His vote also did not change the overall outcome like hers did.
    • Due to Topaz's mistake host Arisa Cox empathizes that all the jury members have to vote for who they want to win more than once on every finale night since season 2.
  • Topaz didn't vote throughout the jury stage, not counting the finale.
  • Topaz was the first female juror in Big Brother Canada.
