Big Brother 2010: Profile of Dave Vaughan

Dave was the sixth housemate to enter the Big Brother house tonight. In his VT he said:

“I love Jesus and I am a Christian minister. For 3 or 4 years I was on drink, drugs sex and rock and roll. For the last eighteen years I’ve become a different person. At times I get so overwhelmed by Gods presence and if people get around me they get transformed.”

Age: 39
From: Pontypool, Wales
Occupation: Minister

This ex-postman/ex-pest controller is now a Christian Minister who lives at home with his wife of 17 years along with his four kids, three dogs, six chickens and lots of rabbits. David recently organised an extreme religious event on Barry Island called Sloshfest which attracted hundreds of people from around the globe.

Top of the class at junior school David went off the rails as a teen, drinking and taking drugs. But on October 11th 1992 he met Jesus. Since then he has thrown off the shackles of drink and drugs getting drunk on “Godka” instead.

As well as God David believes in UFOs and ghosts but only as an extension of his understanding of the scriptures. He says he doesn’t want to go into the house to preach but to be himself, claiming to be funny, bright and likeable when he is relaxed.

David enjoys hunting, fishing and Cardiff City FC. He says he spends a lot of time doing very little but does travel through time and space in the spirit realm and the weirdest thing he’s done is “visit the sun.”

He says “I didn’t want to go on Big Brother and I feel weird about the whole thing”, but since wondered if God’s opening a door to the show for him. Whilst in the house he says that he is up for having fun but won’t do “anything of a sexual nature, or that may harm my Ministerial integrity”.
