Twenty three years ago, there was one and then there were two, identical twins, born and raised in Miami; both scored the same on the SAT tests, both graduated from Loyola University in New Orleans and both are pursuing careers in marketing along with modeling often as a tall, blonde and gorgeous twosome. While growing up, they could easily switch, Liz would become Julia and Julia would become Liz, creating interesting situations with school classes, boyfriends and Miami’s nightlife circuit. Liz and Julia are “connected at the hip” doing everything together.

Having overcome Leukemia at an early age, Julia, a feisty “tom boy”, loves surfing, soccer and rock climbing, and mentions with a smile, “Liz dates for love and I date for fun. I am single and love to mingle.” Her career is coming on strong, and she is “not looking to settle down anytime soon.” Being a true romantic wearing her heart on her sleeve, Liz with her sultry looks and raspy voice, is looking for mind-blowing true love and may have found it on Big Brother.

In March, 2015 the Nolan twins attended an open casting call in Miami which lead to several interviews and eventually both twins landed houseguest roles in Big Brother 17. The other houseguests were unaware of both twins so the producers decided to introduce Liz in the first episode and then switch Julia as Liz, and vice versa 14 times, calling it the “Twin Twist”. Eventually, Julia was introduced as another houseguest contestant.

Big Brother 17 continued for 100 days of 24/7 television surveillance of the houseguests living together, competing with each other while trying to avoid eviction. After competing together for 85 days, it was time for one of the twins to be evicted, and Julia decided to leave the show opening the door for Liz to make it all the way to 100 days only to be evicted and declared the runner-up to Steve Moses.

Liz didn’t win the first place half million dollars, but a second place fifty thousand dollars can go a long way for the twins. What’s next? Liz paused for a moment and said, “Julia and I will move to Los Angeles, we’re so funny together. Maybe we’ll audition for The Amazing Race after I learn how to drive a stick shift.” With fellow contestant, Austin Matelson in Los Angeles, maybe Liz will really find true love.
