Orlaith McAllister (born 28 April 1979) is a model from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She was runner up in the 1999 Miss Northern Ireland competition, losing out to Zöe Salmon. She entered the house on Day 29 and was directed to the Secret Garden with fellow new housemates Eugene and Kinga. Makosi chose Orlaith along with Eugene to enter the main house on Day 32. Orlaith was initially popular with housemates, she became known for allowing them to touch her surgically enhanced breasts, she was also involved in the infamous 'Poolnight' on Day 37. She became friends with Makosi and Vanessa, however they began bitching about her in Week 7, on Day 48, Makosi even threatened to have a cat fight with her whilst Kemal also made threats about her on the same night. Orlaith began to feel unhappy in the house and expressed her desire to leave, despite this, the public did not choose to evict her, On Day 50 the public chose Makosi and Vanessa as the least popular of the six housemates who faced eviction that week, this meant that Orlaith along with Eugene were the first ever late entrants to survive a public vote.
On Day 52, Kemal began to isolate her and had an argument with her in the living room. On Day 54, Orlaith had a massive row with Science, and broke down in tears, she was comforted by her arch enemy Derek, later that day both Orlaith and Science were told that the housemates had chosen both of them to face eviction, Orlaith pleaded with the public to vote her out, although later that week she told housemates that she didn't think she will go - it is possible this was just a ploy to prompt viewers to vote her out. She narrowly survived eviction against Science - who got evicted with 50.5% of the vote - in what is the closest eviction in the history of Big Brother. Orlaith was also the only female of this series to survive an eviction vote against a male housemate - not counting Kinga and Makosi who survived a winning vote against Craig.
Orlaith was given a secret mission on Day 59, in which she was given a vibrating device and had to give a hug to whoever was next to her when the device vibrated, however Makosi sussed her out, but Orlaith pretended she was given a phone as she was feeling so upset in the house. Later that week she was nominated for eviction against her rival Kemal, she survived him in another close vote (51.1%). When Kemal left the house he called Orlaith's bluff about wanting to leave, however the following morning (Day 65) she quit and was replaced by Kinga. She received a huge amount of media coverage after she left the house, appearing regularly in lads' mags and on Page 3.
Orlaith gave birth to her first child, a daughter Eva in February 2007. She gave birth to her second child, a son Anthony in April 2009.
