As the first person to enter the Big Brother house, the self-proclaimed worst driver in Adelaide, 21, was always going to be memorable, especially given the task Big Brother asks him to complete.
But Kieran also attracts attention thanks to his willingness to embrace the new strategic element of Big Brother this season (starts Mon., Jun. 8 at 7.30pm; Seven).
“I want to play a bold strategic game that allows me to survive under intense pressure,” the videographer says.
“I will be the type of housemate that won’t be afraid to say how it is, make bold strategic moves, and lie and cheat to get to the end of the game.”
That said, Kieran does admit one of his weaknesses is “worrying too much about things I can’t control”. Good luck with that!
It is a brave person who decides to take on the all-powerful Big Brother.
Meet 38-year-old function and event manager Angela, who quickly chastises Big Brother for the rations provided for housemates.
Will her take-charge attitude win her friends or gain her enemies in the house?
“My husband says I’m a smart ass and I said, ‘Remove the ass’, Angela says. “I’m just smart. And loyal and kind.”
As for the type of person who might end up on the receiving end of Angela’s tell-it-like-it-is personality, the Kenyan-born, Perth-based mother of two says: “I don’t like stupid people, I’m very impatient and go deep, so if you can’t go deep, then I’m not interested.
I also don’t like bullies because I was bullied in primary school and it makes my blood boil.”
The 22-year-old construction assistant from Adelaide is used to being underestimated because of her looks.
“I’m a very smart, strong and confident girl, but not many people know that about me because of my appearance,” she says “I shock a lot of people.”
But if Talia can handle managing dozens of men on a work site, then dealing with 20 housemates in the Big Brother house should be a walk in the park.
We won’t reveal exactly why Talia will have viewers talking in week one, but suffice it to say she plays a pivotal role in the way the game develops from the outset.
“I hate when people start unnecessary drama,” she teases about what to expect from her. “The show is going to create drama with the housemate eviction so there will be enough already.”
