List of Big Brother Canada houseguests (season 3)
The third season of the Canadian reality television series Big Brother features sixteen new contestants. The competition based series sees the contestants, known as HouseGuests, competing for a $100,000 grand prize, among other luxuries. Each week, the group competes in competition to determine who will have power in the house for the week; each week, one HouseGuest is voted out of the house, until only two remain. The previously evicted HouseGuests will then determine which of the two remaining players will win the grand prize.

She claims to dislike people who "are full of themselves", and believes "having no filter" will hinder her game. She and Zach have a showmance and an alliance with Pilar. Jordan and Kevin were originally in the alliance, but were both evicted. Ashleigh won her first HOH competition in Week 8, and won 3 consecutive vetoes in a row in the Final 6, Final 5, and Final 4.
