Sabrina Houssami (Arabic: صابرينا حسامي; born 3 July 1986) is an Australian actress and model who won Miss World Australia, as well as Miss World Asia Pacific and second 2nd runner up to Miss World 2006.[1] She gained the national title although she did not officially win the national competition. The Miss World Australia organisation cancelled the pageant for that year, due to the Miss World pageant being postponed for 3 months, and gave Houssami the title directly as she was the previous year's runner up.[2]

Houssami was born in the city of Sydney, initially lived in the Sydney suburb of Kemps Creek, and eventually moved to the riverside suburb of Georges Hall. She attended Sefton High School for her secondary education. She comes from a multicultural heritage. Her mother Alka is Hindu-Indian and her father Ahmad is Muslim-Lebanese.

Houssami is a Liberal Studies student majoring in Psychology and English at the University of Sydney.[3]

She represented Australia at Miss World 2006 and placed 3rd, taking the 2nd runner up position, as well as winning the title Miss World Asia Pacific. She also tied with Miss India World to make the semi-finals. Both of them had the same scores from the judges.

Houssami handed over the Miss World Australia crown on 4 April 2007.[4]

She appeared on the first series of the Australian version of The Apprentice, which began in September 2009. She was fired on 16 November 2009, finishing in 5th place.
