Hi! We’re the Nolan twins. Some of you may know us from Big Brother 17, others from the Miami nightlife circuit, or simply because we’re unlike your typical identical twins. We wanted to give you guys a little bit of an intro about our lives and briefly tell you about our crazy cool #BB17 experience!
So, where do we begin? Our story is a very interesting one as we were definitely not your ordinary Big Brother house guests. We were brought into the game as the ‘Twin Twist,’ switching in and out of the house pretending to be one person. The game was an emotional roller coaster, we not only had to sacrifice one of our identities, but we also had to survive 98 days in a drama-filled studio set. The game? 17 house guests competing in cut throat competitions to win half a million dollars. No Internet, no phones, no access to the outside world, nada. The catch? We were finally allowed to play the game as two individual players if we survived 5 evictions. It was NOT easy to say the least, however, the twin team prevailed- Julia finishing in 6th place and Liz winning runner up.
Now a little bit about our lives before Big Brother. We are identical twins (yes identical) born and raised in sunny Miami, FL. We grew up in this wonderful fast-paced city and quickly adapted to our surroundings. We started modeling at the age of 17 and obvi took advantage of all that Miami had to offer: South beach clubbing, boating in Biscayne Bay, and working for our mother’s catering company, allowed us to be grounded yet enjoy a glimpse of the good life.
Fast forward to our young adult life. We attended Loyola University New Orleans where we received Bachelor of Arts degrees in business marketing and journalism. We graduated in May 2014, and exactly one year after college, we were chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity- to be on CBS’ Big Brother 17.
Now that the show is over, we decided to leave our day jobs and follow our dreams. Growing up in one of the most fashion forward cities, we have both been extremely passionate about style from an early age. On our blog, you’ll find affordable ways to look like a million bucks, fun video tutorials of our adventures, and a closer look at what life is really like having a carbon copy.
We’re so excited to share our journey and blog with you all! For even more twin updates, don’t forget to follow us on our social handles:
