We all know that there's nothing like a little "showmance" to keep you on TV screens, but for latest Big Brother evictee Dion Kallis, an in-house romance was never part of his strategy.
After being booted from the house in a snap eviction last night (see video above), the 24-year-old tells TheFIX why he never went down that path. For one, he's already got a girlfriend on the outside of the house!
"[I was] pretty adamant from the start that I'm in love and I'm not interested in anyone romantically in the slightest," Dion tells us. "So I didn't really have anyone flirt with me at all, everyone was treating me like a mate."
But it's not just the girlfriend factor. Two other male housemates, Sam and Lawson also have partners on the outside and they've flirted up a storm with housemates Sandra and Cat, respectively. As a result, their relationships have become major storylines of the show. Check out this awkward Sam/Sandra moment, below.
According to Dion, the love interests are less about game-playing and more about personal insecurity, especially among the guys.
"I think some of the other guys were craving that bit of attention," he said. "It does take two to tango and if they weren’t interested they would make it quite clear that they're completely happy with who they are and they'd rather it stay more friendly."
The Queensland "gym junkie" first caught our attention upon entering the house when he chose to be paired with openly gay housemate Jason over blonde bombshell Skye.
"He is an unbelievable guy," Dion said of his partner in the game, oblivious to the fact that his close friendship with the 26-year-old real estate agent has made him an unassuming advocate of gay rights in Australia.
"It's completely, 100 percent okay to be a homosexual man or woman in this country, I am all for setting that example and I don't treat anyone any differently," Dion noted, adding that everyone in the house has the same attitude.
"I think my relationship with Jason was going to be equal no matter which sex he prefers and which partner he chooses to have. Regardless of his sexual preference he is fantastic so there shouldn’t be any prejudice towards that all."
Having being freed from the house, Dion "can't wait" to be reunited with girlfriend Jordan, who will be joining him to watch tonight's second eviction.
