Makosi The Actress: The Truth
A certain tabloid newspaper published a sensational story
yesterday claiming that game-playing BB6 contestant Makosi
Musambasi is really an actress.
However, as is often the case with these things, there’s
more to it when you really pick it apart.
The front page splash claimed that Makosi was on the books
of a talent agency, who’s sister company had apparently
invoiced BB programme makers Endemol for supplying her.
Furthermore, it was revealed that Makosi is listed on the
company’s website as being an actress, presenter, compere
However, allow us to put forward the most likely explanation:
It is true that Makosi is on the books of talent agency Envenio
and has-been since the beginning of the year.
So, let’s assume that she is something of a ‘wanabee’,
someone who signed herself up with the agency as she progressed
through the Big Brother auditions (which began before she
signed-up by the way).
This would explain why Makosi has shown a multitude of emotions
during her time in the House, because she thinks she will
get noticed and picked-up by a TV or film company.
What we’re suggesting here is that she’s not
a mole or actress working for Big Brother i.e. someone who’s
been employed specifically and is controlled by the producers.
She is simply using the show to gain exposure, like many
who apply for Big Brother these days.
If you think back to BB3 in 2002, former housemate PJ Ellis
had been on 'The Villa’ prior to his appearance on Big
Brother, so it’s nothing new.
About the invoice in question, issued by a company called
The Casting Suite, BBO believes that this invoice represents
the supply of a few audience members for the forum show ‘Big
Brother’s Big Mouth’.
But why would they need them? Basically, it could be that
they wanted a few confident, opinionated people to kick off
the debate, or they needed to record some scripted stuff for
a VT trailer.
Nothing too sinister in that.
The newspaper apparently spoke to someone at The Casting
Suite about the invoice, but their conversation was with an
accountant, who wouldn’t necessarily know what it was
In the tabloid story, the accountant said that he didn’t
know how long Makosi had been on the company’s books.
However, he’s bound to have heard of her, so would likely
acknowledge the mention of her name.
What this smacks of, especially when you consider that the
revelation appears to have been leaked from Envenio, is a
PR stunt on their behalf.
After all, they charge people £75 a pop to get on their
books and how many naïve BB fans will now sign-up, hoping
it will help them get on BB7?
So, Makosi is a wanabee actress, that can’t be denied.
However, she is not a professional (she’s a nurse) and
by all accounts, was NOT paid to appear on Big Brother.
