Occupation: Professional Boxer / Barman
Pro boxer JJ is goal orientated and driven to win, especially when it comes to money. He hates losing with a passion and admits to being vain and cocky.
He got into boxing at the age of 13 and has had 12 professional fights – winning five, losing five and drawing two. His dream is to become a World Boxing Champion…or a television presenter. To support himself he’s currently working as a barman.
JJ is scared of potatoes and octopus’s which he can’t even look at. He claims to be a compulsive liar, telling porkies when he doesn’t even need to. He’s also a risk taker, once gambling a whole months pay on a horse race after a tip from a friend and claims that he is rubbish at keeping any secrets.
On his competitive nature JJ believes winning is everything, “it’s first or nothing.” He’s also always looking for new ways to get money and claims he’d sleep with someone for £100k…it’s probably good that he’s single then.
He’s got a celebrity friend in JLS’s Aston but worries that when he meets new people they will look down on him. JJ claims that he doesn’t hate anyone as hate is a strong word although he would hate someone who threatened to leave the Big Brother house once they were in there.
Occupation: Make Up Artist
This independent woman has never been in a relationship as she’s got too many things she wants to achieve like DJ’ing under the moniker of DJ Naked and getting into the Big Brother house.
Jo has lived alone for seven years and thinks she’d be a nightmare to live with because she’s lazy, a bit messy, scatty and is moody when she doesn’t get her own space.
Jo claims that people think because of her age, she should behave a certain way, but she thinks they should butt out. She can often be found in clubs like Movida in London and admits she likes a drink with the girls and a flirt with the boys – particularly the twenty-something ones!
Willing to be labelled a “cougar”, Jo doesn’t think that everyone in the House will like her, but she’d rather be a joker than someone who’s argumentative.
The most significant moment in her life was when she was baptized as a born again Christian and describes the best relationship so far as being with God, however she confesses she has since fallen by the way side.
This steel-drum-playing East-Londoner declares himself the “sexiest fat man” and states that winning is very important to him because “[he] wants to make little fat girls and boys proud” and show the world that fat can be sexy!
Currently engaged and living with his partner, Joel describes the birth of his first child as the most significant moment of his life so far, stating “I had never been so happy and scared at the same time.” Although he was 21 at the time, he embraced it and states that being a father gave him direction.
With an apparent IQ of over 130, Joel claims to have loved school, but was too lazy to finish and states that he’s often starts things but doesn’t finish them.
The most outrageous thing Joel has ever done is jump the counter at KFC at give people free chicken and chips. He says his worst habits are being windy, loud and mimicking people. A lover of “curvalicious women”, Joel would most like to see Big Brother 6’s Makosi in the house as he “loves big breasts.”
