CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER CONTESTANTS 2014

Past Big Brother Winners

 

Launched in 2001  as part of Comic Relief, the notion of Celebrities being exposed in the Big Brother house was an attractive one, undelined by making money for a worthy cause. The first show was won by Jack Dee and the format looked like a winner.

The subsequent celebrities  drawn to experience the Elstree madness seemed more interested in boosting their flagging careers than partaking in a social experiment. The irony of this was illustrated in 2006 when a non celebrity  Chantelle Houghton not only convinced her fellow celebrities that she was a successful singer but then went on to win the show.

In 2007 the behaviour in the house led not only to national but international outrage. Jade Goody, who had become a household name due to her participation in the regular Big Brother programme, managed to insult Indian model and actress Shilpa Shetty in such a way that not only Big Brother but Jade Goody had to apologize to the Indian Government.

Shilpa Shetty went on to win the show, but such was the hue and cry that Channel four abandoned the 2008 series and re introduced it in 2009.

From studying the Celebrity Big Brother Winners list , there is a recurrent characteristic that it is worth any novelty punter observing. It is not the loudest, the most sucessful or the funniest, it is as in any household, the person who is a team player, has regard for the group, is NOT a drama queen and has diplomatic tendencies.

Some celebrities choose to boost their profile by learning to dance, others choose to go down under and savour the humiliation of life in the outback, then there are those who decide that being ensconced in a house with a dozen other over inflated egos is the easiest option. 

Entertainers, politicians, sportsmen and women and designers have all inhabited the Elstree abode and few have found the process an easy one. Although it may seem preferable to hours of gruelling dancing training or eating kangaroo testicles, the non stop presence of the cameras, the lack of contact with the outside world and the sadistic production company all combine to make it an emotional minefield.
