Tina: "I'm Bigger Than Verne"
Although she didn't actually say it outright, Tina effectively
claimed that she's a bigger star than Verne tonight.
Okay, so not many viewers will have known the name Verne
Troyer before Celebrity Big Brother 6, but loads would instantly
recognise the 2ft 8in dwarf from his role as 'Mini-me' in
the Austin Powers movies.
However, Tina told some of her peers that she had no idea
who fellow thespian Verne was before coming into the House,
adding, "No-one knows who Verne is".
Michelle immediately disagreed, stating that the public
will know Verne from the two Mike Myers movies that he starred
in. "Well, I've never heard of him," spat Tina.
The mouthy 'Shameless' star later told the girls: "I
don't care how famous he is," before nonchalantly declaring
that she's in Channel 4's biggest show (which is an exaggeration).
Let's see: comedy-drama Shameless, about to begin its 6th
season, gets around 2 million viewers. The two Austin Powers
movies that Verne was in pulled-in over 75 million cinema-goers
and grossed around half-a-billion dollars at the box office.
So, who's bigger... the actor behind Mini-Me or the actress
behind Mimi Maguire? Well, if you're talking about the size
of their gob and ego, there's absolutely no contest!
