Trevor Butler was the winner of Big Brother Australia Series 4. As well as being the first, and currently the only, contestant to win $1,000,000, as opposed to the $250,000 of previous seasons, he also boosted interest in the final eviction by proposing to his then-girlfriend Breea Forrest live on the eviction stage.
There was some controversy regarding how much of his winnings were taken away as tax. At one point the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) considered it to be payment for spending the time in the house, and therefore wanted to take nearly half of the winnings away. The ATO eventually gave in and did not take the money.
Trevor and his wife Breea, live in Tweed Heads in far north New South Wales. On 11 October 2007, Breea gave birth to their first child, a boy named Maika Jeremy Butler.
On 31 December 2010, Breea gave birth to their second son Creedance Heath Butler.
