A feminist lesbian, son of a Playboy model, and a farmer among 14 contenders to be part of the LAST EVER Big Brother show
Big Brother's final series kicked off with a diverse mix of contenders including a spiritual guru, son of a Playboy model, a feminist lesbian Buddhist, a waitress, a farmer, etc.
The final series of the Channel 5 show 'Big Brother' kicked off on Friday night with 14 new guests including the son of a Playboy model and a feminist lesbian Buddhist moving into the Big Brother house in Elstree Studios. Hosted by Emma Willis, the dramatic launch saw the show's eclectic lineup make their arrival at the Borehamwood bungalow, which has been given a 'social experiment chic' makeover.
First to enter the house was a 23-year-old gay farmer Cian, from County Tipperary in Ireland, who admitted he would love the chance to meet with people who are not as extroverted as he is. He made his entrance in a sensational faux fur coat, and called himself a 'walking carpet,' before confessing he would be like Big Brother's little 'b****.'
During his entry introduction, Cian added; "Princess Diane is my idol! I should go into the Big Brother house because you've never had a 23-year-old gay farmer from the heart of Ireland." He added that he hopes to bring an "unpredictability" to the house, and said he plans to not "overreact to stupid things."
The second person to enter was a 31-year-old spiritual adviser Anamelia, who was born in Brazil but moved to Sweden at the age of five. After revealing that she was conceived during a one-night stand, the brunette said that she would like to widen representation of spiritual mediums, saying they're all "just old women in glasses with a crystal ball."
She also admitted that, while she is open to many things while on 'Big Brother,' she outright refuses to have sex in the abode in front of the prying cameras, "even if you send Idris Elba in there."
The third entrance was made by a self-confessed "former bad boy" Lewis F, a 27-year-old bartender from Stockton on Tees. The hunk quickly put himself down as a heartthrob of the house. After listing an array of former crimes, Lewis F admitted that, "Although I'm a nice person, when you catch me in a bad mood, you're probably going to think I'm a bit of an a**hole."
When asked if he would be open to finding love in the house, the hunk, who also gave fans a glimpse of his eight-pack, added; "I can't see me having any romance in the house. I am not really in the position to, I am pretty much sorted from that side of things."
"But, to be fair, I don't really care. If I had a connection and something happened, the cameras would not stop me. I am just going to be me," he added.
Lewis also said that it was at the suggestion of a friend he decided to audition for the show. He hoped it would make him feel like less of an introvert and revealed that he once had a panic attack in the middle of a supermarket.
The fourth person to make a debut was a 23-year-old telesales assistant Kenaley from Nottingham. She said that the least-favorite person she would like to live with is either someone who is a "tramp" or "ignorant." However, she is open to finding love in the house. The "caramel Barbie" added that "if we're vibesing on the same wave, we can wave together, I wouldn't mind a bit of 50 Cent."
And despite the final being a 53 days away, Kenaley admitted she had thought about the prospect of being crowned series champion, saying: "Oh my god, even getting here… But winning I think I would just lose my head. It would be amazing, it is what it is. I have just got to remember it is a game, and we will make friends. Everyone is out for themselves at the end of the day, and you have just got to keep it real for yourself."
Polish cleaner, 31-year-old Tomasz, made an entry showcasing his representation as gender neutral in a stylish black kaftan complete with a hand fan. Moving to the UK eleven years ago, he admitted to leaving his native Poland as they view the "LGBT community as second class citizens."
"I'm ready to throw under the bus anybody who deserves it," said Tomasz. "I'm not a really good dancer, all I can do is just show my personality and hope somebody likes it."
Tomasz also admitted he wouldn't shy away from speaking the truth to housemates if they are being out of line, explaining: "I think I bring fun, for sure, and a little bit of a grounding atmosphere. I'm not scared to call people out if they're being ridiculous."
Conservative 'vlogger' Cameron, who was a just six months old when 'Big Brother' first began in 2000, made a dashing entrance.
A self-confessed moaner, the teen said his negative perception could be viewed as "irritating" by his fellow housemates, and only seemed to add fuel to the fire by saying he was nothing short of a competitive man.
Cameron said that, as a staunchly political man, he hopes to bring a bit of old-fashioned debate back into the house, saying; "I'm quite opinionated. And I think we've lost debate a bit in the world, so I'd be up for a debate. It doesn't always have to get into a slanging match of ''You're a this, you're a that…'', it can be done in a sensible way. I don't think that I'm a typical 18-year-old."
When it comes to love, he confessed that he has only been in love with women who have been unattainable.
A waitress from Barnsley, Sian, who is also a single mum, made a jaw-dropping entry. She said that she'd spend the prize fund on a home for her mum in Tenerife and Skegness (or, in her words, 'Skeggy').
The blonde beauty covered head to toe in tattoos said that she would lose her temper if a housemate went near her food, and added; "I am a girly girl, but I don't like miserable people."
Sian also stated that she hopes to be the recurring ray of sunshine in the house: "Hopefully I will be the happy one. Some people get miserable after a few days without anything to do, so hopefully I will think of things to do and uplift people. When my friends are down, they come to mine – I feed them. I will be the happy housemate."
Pint-sized fast food worker, a 19-year-old Ellis, from Scotland nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction as she sported a tiny checked dress upon arrival in the house.
She said; "People always say 'Ellie, you're unintentionally funny', I would literally walk through ASDA and do a s**t drop."
She admitted: "I'll probably annoy some people to be fair, but it's gonna be good telly isn't it. Could you get Irn Bru in the BB house?"
Ex-semi professional footballer Isaac, 23, from Suffolk joked, "Imagine your mum's just turning on and you're in the shower like [laughs]." The former Ipswich Town confessed that he was in contention for sporting stardom during his teen years, but was eventually released after "getting into girls."
It was evident that he is not afraid to speak his mind as Isaac said he "likes the sort of banter that's like on the edge of being off limits."
A 21-year-old graphic designer, Brooke from London was all there to make a difference. Going against the stereotype that lesbians were "all butch," Brooke said that she is a feminine Buddhist who writes to help widen people's perspectives on the universe.
She added that she wants to go against the idea that everyone needs someone to feel "complete," and was putting on an ab-flashing display as she entered the house.
A 26-year-old consultant, Akeem was the only housemate entering the house with a significant other on the outside. He said that he won't hold back from a challenge, and won cheers from the audience.
An artist with a cheeky interest in fallacy and a conversion to veganism, 32-year-old London-based Kay revealed that she enjoys dressing up in alter-egos, including a "boy from the hood" Caleb and Persian cat Kimmy Kanya.
Having recently ditched eating animals, she explained; "I would love to make veganism sexy and cool, it's not just for sun-worshipping hippies. You don't need to go on Instagram and get your a** out, you can do it in a really beautiful and really humble way."
Following her entry was a 31-year-old carer Zoe from Halifax who admitted that she thinks her family are "just like the Kardashians." She struggled to hold back tears as she embraced her family before entering the house. The supposed "Khloe Kardashian of her family" made her arrival after revealing she has been taking care of her 11-year-old son with special needs.
She said; "I won't let society make me feel like I have to put myself down, it's alright to be however you look it's inside that counts, be you do you, and everyone will be fine with it." She also added that "If someone is starting on me, I'll sing to them they either don't know what to say or they laugh and we make up."
The last person to make an entry was the 25-year-old bricklayer Lewis G who, after prolonging his entry for the longest possible time, eventually made his arrival to furious boos from the crowd.
The Camden Town boy, who grew up in Los Angeles where his mum worked as a Playboy model, said that he'll be bringing "something to the house that no one else will."
He said: "I like showing off. I'm a walking star. I will wake up and I am in a good mood, bopping down the street in Camden Town. I'm here to have fun and enjoy this all."
And as all 14 housemates began to make acquaintances, 'Big Brother' introduced the first twist of the series, where they began the show's Orwellian feel with the house's very own currency.
After winning a fan poll, Sian was awarded the first 100 'Big Brother coins' and a scramble then commenced to see housemates grab their own money as it showered from the ceiling.
It was then revealed that the housemates will not nominated in their first week but, instead, they will face eviction if they are the lowest valued in the amount of money they 'own.'
Fans will have to wait and see how this first twist of the final series will turn out and if the contestants remain true to their words.
