BIG BROTHER: MEET ZAK
What made you apply to be a Big Brother housemate?
I feel like it's one of those shows where you can get your personality across and I've got one of those personalities I feel the world needs to see. My friends and family have always told me I should do TV and I never really wanted to do a dating show. I want to do a show where I could just be myself and get my personality out there and have a laugh with people.
What part of the experience are you most looking forward to?
Doing the tasks, having fun and getting to know loads of strangers. I'm excited to meet everyone and see what everyone's about. I don't really know what to expect so I'm just excited to find out what's going to happen.
How would your friends and family describe you?
Cheeky, funny, and caring.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself...
I actually grew up in the jungle in Thailand. People automatically think I grew up in Manchester but when I tell them my life story they are quite surprised. When I was a kid I used to collect snakes and everything.
What are you most likely to get nominated for?
People might judge me because I’m a model. People often have a misconception but I'm a council estate boy. I'm not like a typical model, I'm a down to earth guy. People assume I’m arrogant but when they actually get to know me I’ve got a lot more to offer.
What would you do with the prize money if you won?
Pay off my debts and help my family out. I’ve also been saving up to build a park in my village back at home in Thailand because where I grew up, there's no parks or playgrounds.
Who would be your dream celebrity to live with?
Seth Rogen, he’s funny. Mike Tyson, he’s quite a character and maybe Nicole Scherzinger.
