I have some insider information about Big Brother and its top secret audition process. I’ve advised more than two dozen people who have gone on to become members of Big Brother households from series 2-9 in the UK or others who have been members of BB houses in the US and Australia. This article contains some tips and advice to share with would-be future contestants of Big Brother. I advise on the preparation you’ll need to undertake before you join the BB audition queue, in a town near you soon. You’ll not find information like this anywhere else!
All successful Big Brother candidates prepared well. This article will show you what you need to have prepared and the mindset you MUST have achieved before you join the BB audition queue. It contains tips and advice you will not find elsewhere.
It’s the day of the Big Brother audition and you, like thousands of others, are preparing to join the queue outside the audition venue. Statistically speaking the likelihood of you becoming a contestant when you join the queue is 1 in 4500. Don’t let this put you off! Remember, that the likelihood of anyone winning the UK’s lottery is 1 in 14,000,000 and millions of people buy lottery tickets every week – the odds that you’ll become a Big Brother contestant are already much better. To increase your odds read this article and start believing “I can be a BB Contestant”.
My Top Tip for Becoming a Big Brother Contestant is to be prepared. Even those of you who have decided to project an image of an “all night party animal” (see under Projecting the Right Image in my next article – as detailed below) MUST be prepared.
I strongly advise that you have a good night’s sleep before you join the audition queue and (if at all possible) you should have been getting at least 8 hours sleep per night for at least a week before the audition.
Other preparation you MUST have attended to is the image you are going to project at all times while you are in the queue. You MUST have “your story” remembered and down to pat. You MUST have practiced your “hooks” and “facial expressions” in front of a mirror. You MUST have choreographed and perfected sequences that you can use when called upon to do so. (See how to do all these in my next article Some More Tips for Becoming a Big Brother Contestant). You’ll also have prepared your Queue Bag which MUST include these articles:
You must keep your liquid levels up. Not only will this keep you mentally alert but it will also ensure you look your best for the camera tests
BB Undercover scouts work to reject any prospective BB contestant who does not exhibit exemplary toilet hygiene. For instance, if a scout witnesses that you have not washed your hands after a toilet visit you will be deemed “no good”.
If any scout or subsequent interviewer gets a whiff of bad breath from a prospective BB candidate they are out! With this in mind, DO NOT share your fresh breath mints with any other queue member.
Apply perfume or male equivalent before leaving for the BB audition. My tip is to apply a little more than you would usually at this time. Do not take the perfume to the audition but instead take a perfumed moisturising product. This must be of the same fragrance as the perfume or aftershave you applied on the morning of the audition.
It’s a fact that at least 2 female contestants in each BB series used Givenchy perfumes in the morning and took corresponding Givenchy “beauty veils” – I should know, they were advised by me!
You should have eaten a carbohydrate rich breakfast with no protein. Your packed lunch should be high in protein. The reason for this will become apparent below:
These are for your own use and that of selected individuals you meet in the queue. Your snacks should be protein based whereas those you give to other prospective contestants must be carbohydrate based (potato chips are perfect). By feeding carbohydrates to the queue in your immediate vicinity (the two in front and the two behind, plus any of their entourage) you will encourage them to behave sluggishly. By eating protein only you’ll remain mentally and physically alert. I advise that you attend the audition process alone – most successful candidates (85%) attend alone. If you do take a friend for support, ensure that they follow the same eating regime as recommended for you.
Books or any reading material, any hand held gaming device. BB is not looking for intelligent reader types. You will not be able to read in the BB House and you must exhibit the mindless tendencies of people who do not read. Similarly BB does not want contestants who are addicted to gaming – Nintendo, X Box users should not admit to their usage. BB worries that withdrawal symptoms could be problematic.
Here is a preparation checklist. Do not worry if you do not understand any of the terms used as all will become clear in my second article entitled Some More Top Tips for Becoming a Big Brother Contestant
