We know this is a bit controversial because essentially she's
a popular housemate, but some fans think that there's a hint
of 'gameplayer' about Corin.
Actually, we say that she's popular, but she hasn't always
been, with her popularity having taken a nosedive after her
argument with John James several weeks ago. However, Corin
seems to have made something of a comeback more recently,
arguably having inherited support from Ben's fans when he
got evicted last week.
Anyway, she hasn't really done much this series, but fans
have been discussing the Stockport retailer on internet forums
lately. Indeed, plenty of people feel that she has been contriving
to put across an innocent and naïve front, and have noted
that when she snaps or gets riled, she reveals her real
self, which is nasty and bitchy.
She has blown-up a couple of times so far, and when she had
that barny with John James, some fans said that her comments
and profanity in the Diary Room belied her usual 'nicey' image.
The same thing happened more recently with Sam, and it was
seen by fans as her letting her true colours shine through/
the usual act slip.
Other fans have noted that the 29-year-old's character seems
to change as soon as she enters the Diary Room, compared to
how she acts with her peers. The suggestion is that Corin
adopts more of a 'dizzy' persona because she knows she's being
recorded and is more likely to be make the highlights show.
She has been accused of talking faster, using over-the-top
facial expressions and deliberately mixing her words and pretending
that she can't count etc. (aka doing a Jade Goody), which
some fans find hard to swallow, mainly because she is able
to communicate with her peers perfectly well normally.
Unlike any of the twenty other Big Brother 11 contestants,
Corin also seems to have a number of catchphrases, including
'I'm lovin it' and 'I'm buzzin'. These are somewhat reminiscent
of Big Brother 7 winner Pete Bennett, who spouted an arguably
contrived 'Eeezamana' all the time, among other catchphrases.
Her defenders suggest that Corin only says these things when
she's excited, but it's the repetition that arouses suspicion.
For instance, she will say: 'I'm buzzin'. Are you buzzin'?
I'm buzzin' me', seemingly attempting to repeat the phrase
as many times as possible. It's hard to imagine that in real
life she acts that way when at home etc.
Then there's the suggestion that she deliberately pursued
latecomer JJ because she thinks that a BB relationship will
i. keep her in the game and ii. probably make her loads of
money from magazine deals whether she wins the show or not.
Indeed, the latter has already been discussed among the contestant
Lastly, she appears to be a caring person, however some fans
believe that Corin has all the compassion of a typical hairdresser.
Indeed, it has been suggested that although she says the right
things, she consoles with no meaning and then immediately
goes into talking about something totally inane.
Some say the fact that she continued with the skateboard
ramp task and was dismissive of Keeley's broken ankle (the
only housemate not to make a fuss of the injured latecomer)
arguably showed her uncaring and competitive side.
One thing's for sure, the last two winners of Big Brother
have been girls that were nice, mild-mannered, flew under
the radar/ acted a bit dim, and were visually appealing, so
it wouldn't surprise us if Corin – who like last year's
winner has fake boobs – has contrived to try and win
