Former Big Brother contestant turned radio host and television producer Bree Amer has taken another career change.

"What a buzz! I loved it even more than I thought I would, and cannot wait for the next one. How good is love?"

Amer remains one of the standout contestants from the Big Brother Australia franchise, leveraging her appearance on the reality show in 2004 to forge a career as a television and radio host.

"It is just so joyful, especially in a time where there is a lot of negativity around being a part of such a happy day for people is just awesome," she said.

"It is full on, like a full on course of 750 hours of study. It is a big commitment.

"They needed to regulate the industry a bit so it became quite a hefty course and it is not something you take on lightly."

She continued: "A lot of it is legal studies because marriage is a serious commitment so now it is just about building the business I guess, which will be fun."
