THE bearded blokey intruders are already causing quite a stir in the Big Brother house.

Lumberjack Justynn and graphic designer Nathan surprised the housemates last night when they entered the Big Brother house.

The housemates had mixed reactions to their unwelcomed guests, with the Sugar Sisters screaming and jumping up and down while Tim was miffed at the interruption to his dinner plans.

Ben ran to put on some aftershave, while the girls hurried to put on a bit of makeup.

Justynn told host Sonia Kruger his goal was to take down the major game player in the house, Tim, and he wasted no time sussing Tim out.

In contrast, Nathan describes himself as a big cuddly teddy bear who "wouldn't hurt a flea".

The deep-voiced trivia host told the housemates he only knew "highlights" about what's happened in the house over the past 58 days.

Voting on Nine's app Jump-In opens tonight, with viewers choosing which of the two intruders will stay on in the house next week and have a shot at the $250,000 grand prize.


Intruder bios:

Justynn (33) NSW Lumberjack
Describing himself "Single AS", Justynn says he has issues with growing old, "30 wasn't too bad but 33 just sounds officially old - it's a third of your life gone!"

Originally from Lake Macquarie where he was raised alongside four brothers, he left in 2005 to tour the country with the Education Theatre (puppetry in primary schools) before setting up home in Sydney in 2009.

"I always wanted to be a musician so mum put me on stage as my face was too pretty for sport.  I started singing, got in to a boy band in the late 1990s so I spent my late teens learning how to dance and click fingers in time with music. "

Now a lumberjack sporting long unruly hair and beard, the polished early days in a boy band are a distant memory. 

"I want to win. My game plan will be to keep Australia happy as opposed to the Housemates. I don't clean and I'll probably make the girls cry."

Nathan (35) VIC Graphic Designer & Trivia Host
Part Samoan and part Scottish, Nathan is often likened to "Mr T" and hails from a very worldly background.

"The blokes wear skirts on both sides of my family."

Born in New Zealand, Nathan moved to Australia at seven and spent his life constantly moving around throughout outback Australia and Victoria. 

"I went to 13 schools - we moved every year.  After graduating school I started computer science and studied film and drama.  I worked for free doing short films while freelancing as a film maker, web and graphic designer."

An entertainer at spirit, Nathan is in an electro pop duo group where he wears a silver sequin Jumpsuit and Albert Einstein wig and runs a trivia show at a local Melbourne hotel.

Nathan says, "Going in the Big Brother House is something I've dreamed of my whole life. 

"I haven't had a lot of breaks in my life - I plan to make the most of every minute in there and spread some fun and laughter."
