Housemates

Image
Lauren

The 20-year-old Criminology and Sociology student grew up on a farm in Jersey. From the age of 5, Laruen was a gymnastics prodigy and by the age of 13 she had represented Jersey before taking up Karate.

She's currently a Black Belt and holds three world championship titles. Her favourite party trick is tumbling or jumping into the splits at which "people are always amazed". She claims to be a total "lightweight… after two drinks I think I'm on Dirty Dancing".

Always the dumper in relationships, Lauren is newly single, "it would be nice for there to be some good-looking and intelligent guys in the house". She thinks her toughest challenge in will be getting "annoyed by boys not doing washing up, who don't clean the toilet. My room is always spotless."


Image
Aaron

23-year-old Arron is a model and Mixed Martial Arts fighter. He is currently taking time off from competing to concentrate on modelling for the likes of Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister.

Arron's looking to return to MMA after Big Brother. He's mainly in it for the "glory" and loves being the centre of attention, "thousands of people watching the fight, coming out with your hand in the air... like being famous".

He confesses that once he's had a couple of drinks, he always takes his top off in clubs, lifting up his shirt and showing off his abs. Currently single, Arron's not looking for anything new, "I'm a sucker for love; I fall in love like a big girl."

His strategy for winning Big Brother includes being a leader, getting others to like him and then playing them off against each other.


Image
Sara

Sara is a 22-year-old Student/Model from Edinburgh who won Miss Edinburgh in 2010 and finished second in Miss Scotland 2011. (She believes that she should have won but was told she was too opinionated by the judges.)

She got her modelling break during a school catwalk show when she was 17/18, "I got jobs after that and was signed when I was 18/19". A wild, fun outrageous flirt, Sara freely admits that she is very argumentative with a short temper.

Sara is also a supporter of the Conservative party and a staunch Margaret Thatcher fan, "She was a great woman leader, did amazingly for the country".

She's been single for about a year "I could have a boyfriend if I wanted one. Most men think I'm really scary." She doesn't really think that she can win Big Brother, "It's a popularity contest and there are a lot of people I don't get on with".


Image
Deana

23-year-old Deana is currently Miss India UK and says that the greatest love of her life is money, "I don't believe in love as every man is, or will be a cheater".

Deana has successfully modelled in both the UK and India and, by the age of 18, had earned enough money to purchase her own house. She says she's very ambitious and hardworking and that she finds boys easier to get on with than girls because they are jealous of her looks.

As her mother has always done everything for her and she employs servants when she is working in India, Deana has no idea how to wash up, iron and can't cook.

She's single at the moment but says that finding love is not her main goal. In the Big Brother house, she thinks the toughest thing will be finding her own space and worries that her blunt honesty will lose her friends as it has done in the past.


Image
Conor

Conor is a 24-year-old personal trainer and massage therapist from Northern Ireland –"I'm the sexiest 24-year-old from Derry. FACT!" The most important person in his life is him – "Basically I love myself."

At 16, he won a place at the David Beckham Football Academy in London where he spent four days playing football with the likes of Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. It is one of his proudest achievements as he was the only person from Northern Ireland to gain a place.

Conor's party trick involves him wrapping his "man bit" around his wrist – people call it "the cock watch" and he claims it has got him plenty of interest from girls.

He thinks people's uncleanliness will be his biggest challenge in the Big Brother house because he's a self-confessed "clean freak".


Image
Scott

Scott is a 20-year-old history student hoping to launch a career as a 'celebrity historian' after Big Brother.

He has an obsession with the British upper classes and the Regency Rakes from the 1800s are his idols - he admires their cavalier attitude and how recklessly they spent money.

A member of shooting and countryside societies at university, he enjoys hunting and would love to visit Africa and "bring trophies back". His most recent job was as an Avon Cosmetics Representative, he "quite fancied being an Avon lady" but he didn't think it through as he "didn't get any orders".

Scott has never been in a long-term relationship; the longest lasted a month but he is on the look-out for love, "it's a never-ending crusade". He says that his family are mostly unaware he is gay but suspects that they may have "gathered".


Image
Shievonne

Image
Caroline

Caroline, a 20-year-old former boarding school girl from Surrey, describes herself as "weird, embarrassing and a bit of a loser". She also confesses that she is terrible with boys, "I'm not a very cool person; if I try to act aloof I come across socially inept."

Caroline attended a private prep school, "for very sheltered little girls" where she was quite rowdy with her bad behaviour including "stealing all the wine at a parents' evening and then stealing more wine at a school play. I was stomping around the stage, fell off it and threw up."

The only paid job she's had was as a Chugger (Charity Mugger) which her parents forced her to get when she dropped out of university. She didn't last long as she dropped her phone down a toilet meaning her employers couldn't contact her.

She's never maintained a relationship for longer than a week, she says she "repels" boys, "I'm really inappropriate". She doesn't think she'll win Big Brother, "I always think aloud, I'm very irritable and really blunt".


Image
Ashleigh

This 20-year-old bubbly, energetic, potty-mouthed Essex girl says she wants to win Big Brother for the fame even if she is loved or hated, she doesn't care which.

The retail sales supervisor/part time barmaid believes that, "money does make you happy. It sorts out everything" but says that she is not a stereotypical Essex girl, "Yes I wear fake things when I go out but I'm not like that TOWIE lot".

In the past she's sold wine stocks and commodities which turned out to be very lucrative, "people say you can't do it because you don't have this or that like only two GCSEs but if you set your mind to it you can do it".

Her dream job would be getting into TV or becoming an air hostess. She's happily single but "I love flirting and chatting to boys as long as they have banter and can handle me they're alright".


Image
Adam

Adam is 27 and was born in Burton-on-Trent but raised on the streets of Los Angeles where he became member of the infamous LA Crips gang.

He says that the best experience of his life so far has been getting clean and sober and back on the straight and narrow. Since the age of 19, he has worked hard to turn his life around and has worked as a mentor for young people in the US.

He also wants to work with young adults with drug and alcohol problems in the UK. People tend to find him intimidating but he doesn't have a problem with it, "I would rather that than people trying to take the piss out of me all the time".

He freely admits to having a high opinion of himself but people are surprised how much he cares when they get to know him. In the Big Brother house, he's most looking forward to the tasks and says, "I will be a leader".

When watching the most recent series of Celebrity Big Brother and seeing someone having to eat porridge and cow urine he says, "it just reminds me of the stupid things me and my boys do".


Image
Luke A

Luke A is a 31-year-old development chef, born in South Africa but raised in Wales. Most people in his life are unaware he was born female, "my family and wife know, that's about it".

From a young age he felt like "a boy in a girl's body". He began gender transition four years ago, having surgery and regular testosterone injections; he hopes that being on the show will help to show 'trans guys' that you can lead a normal life.

Luke has been married for two years, "I knew that she was the one, I was tired of chasing girls". They knew each other about a week before he told her he was transgendered.

Luke A's main hobby at the moment is the gym, "I want to lose at least another stone and have bigger guns and I want a six-pack".In the house, Luke says he will get annoyed at messy people and "loud opinionated people as well as chavs".

He also doesn't like people who don't pull their weight. He is confident that he can win, "I have a competitive streak and can be Mr. Nice Guy, quite charismatic, but I can f**k people over to get on in the house. It is a game and I plan to play it."


Image
Luke S

Luke S is a 24-year-old nightclub promoter from Stoke On Trent. He's a charmer who wins people over whether they like it or not "including your girlfriend!"

Luke thinks that he's always the best-looking alpha male in any bar he goes into and is a compulsive flirt; he likes the attention and having a hold over people.

He dropped out of university to work in bars, and got well known in the club scene, which took him in another direction, into club promoting. "Guys want to be me, girls want to be with me."

He's only had one serious relationship and says that his ideal type of girl would have a "proper tight body" and not be stupid as he likes a challenge, "if she frustrates me that's a good thing".

In the Big Brother house, he says he'll be super competitive, "I'm a bad loser; I'd find a way of making it look like it was fixed if I lost. I'd have a sulk".

When asked if he thinks he can win the show, he's clear on his intent, "I wouldn't even bother applying if I didn't want to win. If I play Monopoly, I want to win. It's not about the taking part".


Image
Rebecca

Rebecca, a bubbly 19-year-old student, currently in her first year of drama college. Rebecca has only had one major relationship, claiming she has only ever fancied one boy - her current boyfriend.

She claims that she'd like to be a leader in the Big Brother house to "get them all ship shape". She also reckons she'll be the house gossip, claiming: "I'm a nosy bitch!"

Popular thread :lol: Keep seeing ads for this on channel 4, which is a bit strange. As usual, I'll be watching the launch night to see how horrible and irritating most of the housemates are.

To be expected, it was a slow thread in OT but now it's in the wasteland of E! it's going to be even worse. See how it gets on when the actual show starts.

Only just remembered this starts tonight so I suspect others need a reminder as well. There's an audition show with Jamie East at 8pm as well.
