Why not check out our Discussion Forums to see what other fans are saying about Derek and all the other Big Brother 6 housemates?

For the additional housemate profiles, click the following links: Eugene, Kinga, Orlaith

Name: Derek Laud
Age: 40
Lives: London
Occupation: Speechwriter and political analyst
Status: Single
Why do you think your fellow housemates will nominate you?: “Because I kill furry animals – foxes and birds, I have too much confidence which could irritate others and my outspokenness gets me in trouble.”
Other Info: Derek is a Tory who has worked as a political researcher and speechwriter in the House of Commons and The Lords and has written speeches for many high-profile MPs including Margaret Thatcher, Michael Heseltine and Neil Clark. He has been privy to many politicians’ secrets and features in John Major’s autobiography, Alan Clarke’s Diaries and John Mortimer’s latest book, Where There’s A Will. He describes himself as “strong, sensitive and humorous” and claims that his unique selling point is that he is a very loyal person who would never go behind anyone’s back. Derek was the first and only black master of foxhounds and he has Jamaican roots.

Current Game Status/ Position: Derek came 6th (out of 16), lasting seventy-one days from Day 1 until Day 71.

Number Of Times Faced Eviction: Five

Derek was evicted at the 10th Eviction on Friday the 5th of August 2005 (Day 71), when up against Eugene. Del received 58% in the public vote that evicted him. He had previously survived possible eviction at the 7th Eviction on Friday the 15th of July (Day 50) when up against Eugene, Makosi, Orlaith, Science and Vanessa - all six only found-out they were facing eviction 30 mins before, due to a twist - see here and here. Ultimately, however, it was between Makosi and Vanessa. Derek had also survived possible eviction at the 4th Eviction on Friday the 24th of June (Day 29), when up against Roberto. He also survived the 3rd Eviction on Friday the 17th of June (Day 22) when up against Roberto and Sam. Prior to that, he'd survived at the 2nd Eviction on Friday the 10th June (Day 15) when up against Ant, Craig, Kemal, Les, Makosi, Max, Rob, Saskia, Sam, Science and Vanessa. He was up for eviction due to this, but would have been up against just Sam if that hadn't come about. Prior to this, Derek had not faced eviction.
