Who'll Make The Most Money From BB9?

'Mr Paparazzi' Darryn Lyons has given his opinion on the earning potential of some of the Big Brother 9 housemates.

The spiky-haired 40-something, who supplies pictures of celebs to all the magazines and newspapers, was asked by Channel 4's website what it takes to have an A-list profile.

"It's a combination of PR and the right people to promote in the right arenas; it's not just about popularity. Press interest usually lasts a year so it's my job to make people more famous than just being on the show, and hopefully make them a millionaire," said the oft-obnoxious Aussie.

He then gave an opinion on certain housemates' earning potential, including recent evictee Jennifer:

Jennifer
Darryn said that Jen, who's earned around £20k so far, messed-up her chances of earning decent money by causing the fuss which led to Fight Night II. He predicted that she'll likely appear in a tabloid newspaper and Heat magazine, but reminded that she's not exactly liked by the public so is a hard sell.

Mario
Darryn said that he's a nice bloke and a good guy to watch on TV, but he wouldn't want to make money out-of him. In other words, he couldn't really make money out-of man-manager Mario.

Lisa
As with Mario, Darryn doesn't think that Lisa has any earning potential, even if she makes for good viewing.

Rex
About Rex, Darryn said, "He's changed his spots in the last week. He's trying to be 'Mr Cool' but he's not that cool". Rex's only real chance of making money would be to hook-up with a female in the House.

Mohamed
"He earned a lot of credibility with the public for dealing with the Picturegate scandal the way he did. He won't get a huge amount of interest, but he'll be one to watch," said Darryn of Mo, before suggesting that, as with Rex, he could do well if he got into a relationship.

Sara
"If she can remain in the House and hook-up with someone, she'll be rolling in it," said Darryn of fellow Aussie Sara.

Luke
Darryn predicted that Luke would get work doing personal appearances, but wouldn't be earning big money for each appearance. However, the pap stated that Luke could win the £100k prize money and go on to earn a living from his appearance on BB.

Stephanie
1st Evictee Steph has made around £100,000 since she left the Big Brother House, which Darryn thought was amazing given that she was only there for a week. That's premiership footballer money!

Dale
"He'll be the guy who makes big bucks; he'll do extremely well commercially," said Darryn, who claims to have helped last year's hunk Ziggy make £750,000. It was suggested that Dale could sell tanning or men's products, and will likely earn between £100k and £300k. That would be boosted to £500k or maybe even £1 million if he hooks-up with someone in the House.

Kat
Darryn's favourite housemate, he reckoned cookie monster Kat has the best chance commercially because she's a real character, is loved by the public and isn't playing a game. He predicted that she could be the face of cookies or cornflakes etc.

To be honest, we're surprised about Dale. Sure, the 21-year-old has the requisite good looks and rippling muscles, but he's not exactly the most dynamic contestant ever. Also, he never manages to finish his (mumbled) sentences, so presumably they won't let him speak in any adverts?!
