Help us crack the mysterious hidden secrets of the new Big Brother cast … or just help us add to the wacky theories!
Big Brother made its much-anticipated return to Australian screens last night, and despite the hype about a new breed of housemate, the general consensus is that BB12 is only one more Gold Coast model short of being old hat.
…But there was one point of difference new host Sonia Kruger kicked off the opening night with a choreographed dance routine in skin-tight silver trousers. Imagine trying to convince Gretel Killeen to do that!
Ten housemates entered the BB house last night and each one of them has a secret. Ranging from a loudmouthed blonde to a loudmouthed country girl, a loudmouthed hipster to a loudmouthed slob (oh and the adorable teenage geek with the stutter), the twist this year is that every housemate has something to hide.
"Expect the unexpected": The new series of Big Brother promises a different breed of housemate.
Once the gang had finished with the opening night ritual of jumping up and down and screaming in each other's faces, Big Brother gave them a few hints about each other's deep dark secrets…
Apparently one of the housemates is a multi-millionaire, one has a genius IQ, and another was a juvenile offender.
Fans are having a field day tossing up theories on Facebook and Twitter. But not all of them have much to do with Big Brother's hints!
"The ginger guy is wearing a wig," is a popular theory among commenters. Housemate Michael harped on for a suspiciously long time about his trademark shaggy red hair, and now Australia is convinced it's fake.
Is that his real hair?
Michael is also the frontrunner to be the one with the genius IQ, now that he's established he's the
person in the house with a degree.
Michael "isn’t afraid to let down his mane" according to his housemate profile.
Other popular theories put forward on the interweb include:
"Are they all virgins."
"They are all bald."
"I think Layla is a man .... or was..."
Sonia Kruger greets housemate Layla.
"Skater girl is a lesbian."What do you reckon the secrets are? Share your theories below!
"The English girl isn't English."
"Michael hasn't had a girlfriend since the age of 11 … coz he likes dudes!"
"The nerd is actually a cannabil [sic]."
"This season will be a sort of remake of The Hunger Games and every week they fight to the death."
