Gordon Sloan was one of the cast members on Australia's very first season of Big Brother in 2001.
While his reality TV appearance was short, Sloan's unusual hair style was memorable.
After the show, Sloan's relationship dissolved and his architectural career was put on hold. He travelled to Iraq to work as a "human shield" in the war, and had a brief relationship with Natalie Bassingthwaighte in 2005.
In 2007, Sloan was found slumped against a wall in a Beijing nightclub. He was admitted to hospital in a coma, and passed away 13 days later, aged 34.
Sloan was the fourth person evicted from the Big Brother house in season one, after 35 days inside.
