Deaf contestant @ Big Brother


The Sun is reporting there's a deaf contestant in this year's Channel 4's Big Brother.

TWENTY potential housemates include the most outrageous ever picked, claim BB bosses.

There’s a butch lesbian who allegedly self-harms and boozes, a professional drag queen, the show’s first deaf girl and a gay muscleman described as “sex mad”.

This year's series starts at 9pm this evening, where the new house mates will be introduced.

Female,Deaf ..that will be me watching it then :-)

Wasting valuable cultural space on crap like this?

Oi, some people like crap!

There was no Deaf woman after all, but one (hearing) activist housemate stated that she likes sign language, so you never know what might happen - maybe they'll bring a Deafie in later!
