“We all feel Victorians’ pain right now and we all pay a price for breaching lockdowns and border closures; unless you’re a cocky Victorian real estate agent who decided to travel to Queensland for new motorbike tyres and managed to talk a negligent cop into letting him cross the border,” A Current Affair presenter Tracy Grimshaw said introducing the program.
As the five-minute long segment explains, when Daniel approached the border, he convinced the police to let him in on “compassionate grounds” because he needed new tyres, despite the fact he was coming from Geelong, Melbourne. Even more bizarrely, the real-estate-mogul-turned-YouTube-vlogger, who goes by the name, Million Dollar Bogan, was so proud of breaking the law that he even filmed it all on YouTube.
Not gonna lie, this really makes us wonder just how strategic he actually is on Big Brother when he’s literally filmed himself doing a crime?
Earlier this week, Daniel urged fans to trust him when he said he was the “hero” of this new season and not its “villain.” “I’m not there for Instagram fame or to make friends,” he told the Herald Sun. “I’m there to play the game, have a bit of fun and evict as many people as I can,”
But, his fellow housemates think otherwise.
Last night’s evicted contestant, Chris Wayne, told our sister site Now To Love, “I believe he is being watered down. And I’ll be very surprised if any other housemate doesn’t back that statement up.”
“Living with him was so much more intense than what you see on TV. It was fundamentally unpleasant.”
In an interview with PopSugar, Flex Mami, 26, has described him as “hyper-masculine, misogynistic and a bit sexist,” after he “grilled” her about her “employment history and couldn’t understand that I had a brain and also work in the entertainment industry.”
Max Beattie, the 29-year-old Queensland Ironman who was eliminated by Daniel, told New Idea: "I didn't get voted out because I was hated, I got voted out because one guy was scared, that's all".
“I just don’t want Daniel to win.”
Big Brother returns tonight on Channel Seven at 7:30PM.
