Big Brother 2010: Davina chooses Mario Mugan 14th housemate & mole

After the 13 hand picked housemates entered the Big Brother house tonight, Davina McCall revealed the first of many twists.

There was to be a 14th housemate and their name was to be chosen from a tombola spinner. After building up the appropriate amount of suspense, Davina chose a name and the lucky man was BB superfan Mario Mugan. Coincidence?

On hearing his fate Mario exclaimed:

“I thought that was it, ti was done…I was preparing my tears. Yes!!”

However it wasn’t to be that easy. Mario was played a specially recorded video message from Big Brother telling him that he was to be assigned an impossible task, which he has little to no chance of completing.

Mario is now a mole. He is dressed as a mole, he must sleep in a mole hole but must not let the housemates know that he is a mole…..WTF? If he succeeds then he can stay. If he fails then he will be asked to leave the Big Brother house.


Age: 28

From: Essex

Occupation: Unemployed

Born near Venice in Italy Mario is half British and half Italian. He lives in Essex and although now unemployed recently worked in McDonalds.

Mario is fascinated by the paranormal and the potential powers of the mind believing “we are all connected by a cosmic force but organized religion isn’t relevant or needed”.

He doesn’t believe that love truly exists rather it is ‘an enforced emotion of jealously and fear’. He says he has learnt to not wear heart on his sleeve and to trust no-one, he is often the dumper because he likes feeling like a big man.

Mario has a phobia of death and aging which means he constantly wears moisturiser and sunblock and always exercises ‘to be young and beautiful’. He hates to see animals mistreated but he eats meat.

Mario is a massive Big Brother fan and he owns the diary room chair from BB7. His friends say he is a shallow narcissist but he is bored by Paris Hilton/Jordan wannabes. He admits to being vain, saying when he goes to a club even if he doesn’t want to pull girls, he still wants to look attractive to them. However, never in Primark – “vampire and destroyer of fashion”

Do you think Mario can do it? Leave your comments below.
