It's the final series, and they've finally employed a professional to do the launch intro. We get a quick glimpse back through 10 years of BB history before focus shifts to the new house and the people who want to move in it - "Who goes in - Big Brother decides".
The front of the house (or the Big Top as it's more like this year) has been tweaked slightly to previous years, with the 81 potential HMs stood opposite the house waiting to here their fate - and see their face on the big screen.
After a VT guiding us through how the shortlist was put together the big screen is turned off so Davina can guide viewers at home around the house. Nothing much new revealed about the house itself, apart from the eagle shaped diary room chair - but we meet three characters who'll be communicating with housemates.
Firstly, there is Bob Righter - who can predict the future. Secondly, there is Davina McCaw - a parrot perched in the living room, and finally - we discover what happens to the Tree of Temptation. Ruthlessly chopped down when the house was revamped, he's ended up "back in this shithole" as a chest of drawers in the bathroom.
Time for the shortlisted to discover if they will be a housemate - one by one we hear "Big Brother chooses you" as the camera zooms in on someones face - and the crowd take an instant dislike. We then see their VT - a mix of audition footage and a video they've shot themselves - before they are booed further as they meet Davina and then enter the house.
The thirteen housemates chosen by Big Brother:
(all stats from BBSpy HM guide!)
Josie (25, financial sales rep, from Bristol)
A West Country sales rep who lives alone in a wooden cabin on her aunt’s farm and owns a horse and cart.
Steven (40, ex-HM Forces, from Leicestershire)
This former soldier is a father of 8. He’s been unemployed for 20 years having lost both legs and an eye while serving in Northern Ireland
Ben 30, writer/broadcaster, from London
Was once a political correspondence for an Arab TV Channel and has contributed to the Daily Telegraph.
Rachel 23, celebrity lookalike, from Nottingham
Works as a Beyoncé lookalike at corporate events, claims to look in the mirror around 100 times a day “checking I’m still hot”.
Nathan 25, joiner, from Bingley in Bradford
Claims to have an alter ego called Seahorse that is the complete opposite to him. Describes himself as an acquired taste and happy go lucky but “there is a fine line between confidence and cockiness and I straddle it well”.
Dave 38, minister, from Pontypool in Wales
Organizer of much publicised extreme Christian Event ‘Sloshfest’, claims he travels through time and space in the spirit realm and the weirdest thing he’s done is “visit the sun’’.
Caoimhe (22, student with BA in French and Spanish, from Dublin)
Her name is pronounced “kee-va”. She says ‘life’s too short’ for cleaning and says ‘cooking is beneath me’. Got sacked from a job for being ‘diva’.
Govan (21, voluntary worker, from Leicester)
Bi-curious University dropout looking to break into fashion
Shabby (24, actress/punk musician, from London)
Was a child actor and was down to the final two for the film “The Parent Trap”. Her rival was Lindsay Lohan
Ife (25, professional dancer from Milton Keynes)
A dancer, who was given to a white-family when she was six weeks old by her (black) mother - reunited at 17.
John-James (24, retired vehicle body builder, from Melbourne in Australia)
Australian. Changed his name to “Achilles” when he was 20. Flew backwards and forwards from Australia to the UK to audition for Big Brother.
Sunshine (23, medical student from Peterborough)
Apparently she woke up one day and decided she wanted everyone to call her Sunshine. She likes being pretty and gluing crystals on to everything she owns, and she pulls faces when she’s annoyed.
Corin 29, unemployed, from Cheshire
Glamorous bi-sexual who claims she is often mistaken for Katie Price. Widowed – her husband died 4 months after they were married.
Now it's time for Big Brother to show us his balls - all 68 of them, each with the remaining members of the shortlist on them.
The random housemate is -
Mario Murgan (28, unemployed, from Essex)
Aspiring fashion designer, doesn’t believe in love but trusts the paranormal. Owns the Diary Room chair from Big Brother 7.
However, there is a twist. As a random housemate, he must complete Big Brother's "Impossible Task". Basically he is a mole, and if identified will be evicted. He must meet an old friend in the bathroom later tonight for further details.
And to help him disguise his identity, he is dressed in a mole suit, has a banner saying "I am a Mole" round his neck and must live in the mole hole.
In eleven weeks time the winner of BB 2010 will be crowned - and then remain in the house to compete against the pick of the former housemates - both celeb and civilian - to be named "Ultimate Champion" over the final two weeks.
