As we all know, Big Brother has been on our tellies for over a decade (14 years this year to be exact). The temporary celeb status of some of the housemates has come and gone, and over the years we’ve seen some gooduns like Jade Goody – whose legacy will stay with us forever.
I can’t say I’ve kept up-to-date every single year – in fact, the last one I properly watched was the one with Jade Goody – but as I switched over to Channel 5 this evening, I was instantly hooked. Why? I know one of the housemates.
I don’t know whether or not the producers just got it right this year, or if it’s because of the familiar face, but Big Brother ’14 already seems to be highly entertaining beyond belief. Boy am I excited.
This year’s housemates are:
So we’ve got:
Mirror loving, “It’s all about me” girl, Tamara who claims she’s smarter than the bimbo people take her for.
Essex boy Winston who loves a good chat-up line to reel in the ladies.
Lovable Liverpudlian Visual Merchandiser Mark – who I used to work with – and I’ve never been more excited to see his personality on TV. Formerly also seen on X Factor and Shipwrecked.
Music graduate Matthew – BB’s answer to Made In Chelsea’s Mark Francis. Who reckon’s he’ll be the first to go with his “intolerance of people devoid of personality”.
Dance teacher Pauline – and current “Power” head of the house who toured with Kylie.
Arrogant Steven who boasts about his millions – bearing in mind guys, he’s ONLY 23, and let’s face it, that’s not an attractive trait for any guy to have.
“Journalist-ish” Christopher who has escaped life as a dairy farmer (bet he’s chuffed).
Strict Catholic Danielle who’ll probably not get on with anyone in the house because she’s against same-sex marriage, and sex before marriage – lets just hope she doesn’t try to force her views on the rest of the house.
Headliner Helen who’s trying to move past her tabloid scandal image that was broadcast 3 years ago.
Playboy brainy babe Kimberly from California who has degrees upon degrees and apparently some military training.
What a group we have! And tomorrow night 6 more faces will join this lot, so who knows what Big Brother has in store!
