The UBB housemates discussed some of the more memorable contestants
from over the years tonight.
Talking about the former housemates who've returned as guests
over the past few days, Victor questioned why they have suggested
that the Ultimate BB housemates are a quiet bunch.
In response, Brian said that he can't think of any Big Brother
series that was considered quiet, to-which Vic added:
"But there was always one nutter in there, wasn't there?"
They then recalled some of the more controversial housemates
from Big Brother history, including Shahbaz Chauhdrey from
Big Brother 7. The group laughed as Brian imitated the long-term
unemployed Scot's famous quote: "Play your part, honey,
play your part".
Camp-slash-weird Shahbaz was known for being a bit too touchy-feely
with his peers, and his behaviour became more irrational as
the days wore on. That said, he only lasted six days in the
game before agreeing to leave, after alienating all his peers.
In Shahbaz, there were definitely shades of Ahmed Aghil from
Big Brother 5 in terms of his erratic behaviour.
During his own time in the House, Ahmed was accused of semi-letchy
behaviour towards Shell, but soon apologised. The property
developer was a slightly-odd but harmless figure really, famously
declaring: "I am not a sandwich," at one point,
and also smashing a load of plates in the garden in protest
about the wake-up alarm.
Talking of which, Ahmed returned to the House tonight to
recreate his BB5 outburst, walking around the house and garden
smashing crockery. Some housemates had no idea who he was,
but of course Michelle, Nadia and Victor knew exactly who
he was, and laughed at his plate-smashing shenanigans.
Getting back to tonight's conversation, Brian concluded:
"You know how Big Brother contestants always get a bum
rap? Just think of the genuine nutters that have come down
those stairs, because there was always one. Genuine, genuine
Thank God for the slightly unhinged characters, the weirdoes
and the downright nutters. So, Penny from BB2, Lisa from BB4,
Ahmed from BB5, Craig from BB6, Shahbaz from BB7, Dennis from
BB9 and Ken from BB10, we salute you!
