Big Brother 8 - Opening Night

Recommended Posts

Nope. Not a thread about my brother missing the train at Blackpool :grin:


But tonight's the night. It's back. Tomorrow, the tabloids along with the Lee Hughes story will be filled with articles about how one of them once shagged a dog as a joke, how one used to be a prostitute, how one is really a man and how another is living in the u.k illegally.


So come on. Own up, which of you lot will be tuned in and spending the next few months cancelling any Friday night plans to watch each eviction. :unsure::blink:


















Sad Acts :grin:

Endemol are doing a show in Holland where the winner of the 3 contestants gets the transplanted kidney of a terminally ill patient. Now that's what I call reality TV.


I saw something on TV yesterday about this, it certainly does put an interesting slant on things.


As for BB generally, what a total waste of time.

is chris hall on then?


i won't bother then!!!


the only reality "show" i enjoyed was when sir johnny of rottenshire was on that jungle show.

was loaded up against him to show what a sad person everyone hoped he'd be...and he'd bugger off watching insects,animals etc all day in their natural habitat,while the others bickered about being hungry!


seemed he was more brainier than the tv company thought.


he bloody well show them who was boss too!

he walked out...i turned tv channel over.

All girls tonight apparently. Blokes to join on Friday.



Age: 36

From: Cambridgeshire

Occupation: Cleaner

Status: Single


“I’m a raver, man - I’m a cheesy quaver…I buzz off anything and any one.”

A self-styled hippy raver from a small village in Cambridgeshire, Tracey has collected carrier bags since she was six and says she has never switched on a computer. She has never been on a plane but hears that Goa is a “phat place to be.”


Tracey’s dream job is an actress but she is happy with cleaning for now. “I love my Hoover, love my polish.” In five years’ time she’d simply like to be in a shed with running water and an unblocked toilet. Although she likes to keep her hair nicely styled, she has not worn make-up for 15 years and admits to being slack in terms of looking after herself.


Passive, party-loving and peace-loving Tracey says, “I go out havin’ it every weekend in a field, get on it, get in the stack and buzz like!” She adds, “I like people to be happy - I don’t do anger, it’s not in my world.” Drunks, proper mess and laziness make her angry. She also feels strongly about humans killing the planet and is passionate about keeping the monarchy.

Tracey’s entering the Big Brother house “For the phat experience.”



Age: 19

From: Wakefield

Occupation: Student

Status: Single

“I would either like to be famous and rich… or a speech therapist in Spain”


Chanelle is utterly obsessed with Victoria Beckham and wants to move to Madrid and then LA just like her idol. She recently had her ‘pob’ cut short and bleached blonde to look like Victoria. Chanelle once queued up for hours to meet her heroine at Selfridges, would love to be a professional Victoria Beckham look-a-like - and says she’s definitely not a fan of Rebecca Loos.


She is doing her A-levels and would like to be a speech therapist in Spain, as she loves the country, the climate and culture. She plays the violin to Grade 7, but admits she doesn’t practise as much as she should.


On how she views herself, Chanelle says “I think my personality is fantastic, I wouldn’t change it for anything … but I don’t like my thighs”. She says she is intelligent but lacks common sense, and is “bubbly, crazy, fun, dramatic, over the top”. But she warns that she also holds a grudge.


Chanelle wants to do Big Brother for the fame. “I want people to like me, I want to meet new people, I want to be recognised in the streets”. She says she would like to win, but it’s not hugely important to her. She says that she “would like to find a rich boyfriend to take her to the Dominican Republic over Christmas.”



Age: 22

From: North London

Occupation: Temp receptionist

Status: Single

“I am an enigma, I’m striking in my presence. People love to talk to me and are drawn to me.”


Shabnam lives at home with her mother, who she gets on with like a sister. She loves people who like their food, especially chocolate, and describes herself as “full of life, vivacious, nuts, passionate, inimitable and striking”. She’d like to be reincarnated as “another enigma” such as Michael Jackson or Johnny Depp.

Shabnam’s main ambition is to travel the world and enjoy life - she wants adventure and spontaneity and her philosophy is “to live each moment to the full, because the moment never comes again.” An energetic chatterbox, make-up mad Shabnam feels people may nominate her for being messy and because her zest for life and high energy might irritate them. “Housemates that would annoy me would be the ones who don’t listen to me…I should really be listened to because I talk a lot of sense.” She adds that she doesn’t like passive people and has a phobia of bees.

Shabnam lasted two days working in McDonalds and once worked in a toy department where she dressed up as Hello Kitty and Mr Men characters. She has never voted because she can’t be bothered.


She thinks Big Brother will let her “fascinating personality” shine through. “You can’t act on Big Brother - you have to be yourself. There is no other way to win.”



Age: 19

From: Bristol

Occupation: Student

Status: Single

“I don’t do losing. I win. Team Emily”


Emily says she was reading from the age of two and gives herself 10 out of 10 for intelligence. This is all part of her very honest attitude to life, and she says “honesty gets me into trouble - teachers hated me for being so honest. Friends like me for being honest. I expect honesty back”.


Having been involved in drama and the theatre since she was five years old, she now believes that her future lies in the fashion industry and is applying to do a fashion course. She says her dream job would be running a magazine or fashion label.


Politically, she considers herself to be right wing and will be voting Conservative in the next election. She says she has no time for benefit cheats, and believes everyone has a right to education, to make money and to keep it.


Her family lived in Puerto Rico for four years but are now back in the UK. Emily and her “gorgeous” 17-year-old twin sisters are known as “the Hilton sisters of Bristol”.

She’s a big Blondie fan, and her current favourite music includes Lily Allen, and new rave acts like CSS and the Klaxons. Her motto is “Live life to the fullest, like it’s your last. Enjoy what’s around you and what’s given to you”.


She thinks Big Brother will change her life, and looks like a big adventure. She believes she’ll be the housemate the public want to watch and would want to be friends with.



Age: 23

From: South Wales

Occupation: Nanny

Status: Single


“I talk too fast, I talk too much ... I’ve always got something to say”


Laura is currently a nanny, but her dream in life is to become an embalmer as she believes strongly that when you’re dead you should still look good. She also volunteers at a local cemetery clearing leaves, and her ambition is to one day own her own funeral home.

She is staunchly anti-smoking as she hates the smell, and the whole idea of passive smoking. She’s also not a great fan of alcohol and can get drunk on just one pint. People tell Laura she reminds them of Little Britain character Vicky Pollard, and she’s also told that she looks like comic Peter Kay.

Laura admits her nickname is “Wangers” because of her large breasts and is a fan of Bon Jovi, Roxette and Lionel Ritchie. She says the proudest moment of her life was when she was voted Student of the Year at age 16.


Laura describes herself as “happy, happy, happy” and says she’s “friendly, happy, too chatty and nice”. Laura says that looking good is important to her and she “never leaves the house without washing her hair or putting fake tan on.”


She thinks she’d make a brilliant housemate and that being in the house would help her learn to deal with others. She thinks she’ll be one of the top 10 housemates ever.



Age: 27

From: Watford

Occupation: Accounts Executive in a bank

Status: Single

“People seem confused about my identity - I’m not confused.


It would be nice to explain to everyone, once and for all, what I’m about.”


Nicky was born in Mumbai and adopted from Mother Teresa’s orphanage in India when she was one. Her adoptive parents are Irish and Anglo-Indian. She has been in her job for nine years - arranging company cars in a retail, business and corporate bank. She studied floristry for two years and is currently learning Spanish.

Nicky describes herself as “crazy, sexy, cool, unique, creative and spontaneous”. She likes to shake up people’s expectations. “I’m Catholic and not Muslim or Hindu, I go out and drink and smoke and party hard.” Love, she thinks, is “for losers”. She hates men - “nasty little creatures - I can’t tolerate them at the moment”, although admits she’d love to pull Calum Best.


Nicky recently dropped four dress sizes and abseiled down her local shopping centre for charity. Her party trick is a rendition of The Cheeky Girls and she is addicted to electro music and hot sauces. “Spongers, scroungers and nose-picking” are Nicky’s pet hates, and in the house she predicts she’ll be irritated by selfishness and unwillingness to help out or take part.

“I’m not someone to be ignored. I will get my point across,” Nicky declares. “I have lots of leadership skills. If people carry on ignoring me, I’ll release my inner bitch.” She predicts she may get nominated by others because of jealousy, for being too straight-talking or for her penchant for extreme cleaning.



Age: 53 years

From: London

Occupation: Young people’s sexual health and HIV worker - unemployed

Status: Single


“I am gonna shake it something rotten and they will be shaking s***less. If people want an argument, here’s the ****ing argument!”


Carole is a born and bred Londoner, who has spent most of her life protesting, being actively involved in politics and welfare issues, and is staunchly anti-war.


Boasting an incessantly hectic lifestyle, she has been a protestor at everything from the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camps to more recent anti-war rallies, but is a member of The Socialist Workers’ Party, Respect, Unison, Action For South Africa, the Stop The War coalition, among many others. She has also been a foster carer. Carole says the person she’d most like to meet is Nelson Mandela, and says she was driven to join George Galloway’s Respect party after Tony Blair sent troops to Iraq.


Carole has been promising herself a tattoo or piercing for a while and might go ahead with it for her next birthday, and she thinks Peter Kay and Ricky Gervais are geniuses. She even admits that 20 years ago she sang in a band called Fancy Footwork.


She’s a massive fan of the programme and wants Big Brother to change her life. She wants to bring important issues into the public eye, wants some excitement and to maybe find love in the house."
