A BLONDE Ballina  beauty is drawing the limelight after entering the Big Brother house as part of the TV program's new twist: a fake married couple.

Jade, 22, and fellow housemate Drew have entered the house as perfect strangers, but must pretend to be a newly married couple and fool the rest of the housemates.

Hotel Henry Rous Ballina posted a message on their Facebook page on Monday night egging on Jade, who works at the hotel.

"Hotel Henry Rous is right behind Big Brother 2013 with our own Jade going in the house!", the post read.

Born in France and raised in the Northern Rivers, country girl Jade trained as a model in Italy.

A young woman who has travelled the world for modelling and acting jobs, she said she was now happy to be back in Australia pulling beers at her local hotel and living with her grandmother in Ballina.

In last night's episode of Big Brother, Drew and Jade met each other for the first time in the Diary room and Big Brother told them of their quest to fool the other housemates.

They had a faux wedding in the Diary Room before entering the house armed with their mission: to convince the rest of the housemates for one week they are a married couple.

If they do, they will be immune from nomination.

However if any housemate comes into the diary room and tells BB they don't believe Jade and Drew are married, the pair will automatically be up for nomination.
