Caitlyn Jenner secretly left her five-star hotel in Sydney in the early hours of Friday morning, after undergoing 14 days of mandatory quarantine prior to her appearance on Big Brother VIP.
Daily Mail Australia understands that the 71-year-old has checked into a second hotel where she will stay until she enters the Big Brother house later this week.
A Channel Seven insider revealed that ‘Caitlyn was the first to be taken away this morning by two tinted Mercedes-Benz Viano vans’.

“They made her leave the parking lot at the Meriton early so as not to be noticed by photographers or other guests.”
The insider went on to claim that it was Seven’s idea to have Caitlyn check out at 5:30 a.m. to avoid being followed by paparazzi and ruining the monitored series.
Meanwhile, another source tells the Daily Mail Australia that the stars of the show are driven around in rental cars with black sheets on the windows.

“The drivers are not happy at all, they had to stick their heads out the window when reversing their cars because of the sheets covering the windows,” they said.
Caitlyn had stayed at the Meriton Suites Pitt Street hotel, the same penthouse suite as Rita Ora, which cost the network $500 a night.
While many hotel quarantine packages include in-room food deliveries, Caitlyn’s room featured a modern wood kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
