Big Brother 2010 – the final ever British BB – has kicked off and Australian housemate John James is already a bookies favourite.

The blond Aussie is so far coming second in the popularity polls after one-eyed, double amputee war veteran Steve.

John is sharing his spot as second favourite housemate with ‘Yorkshire Liam Gallagher’ Nathan.

John’s biog on the Channel 4 website says:

“24-year-old John still lives at home with his mum but has his own independence after his dad built him his own granny flat. John hasn’t worked since his father was killed in an industrial accident and he inherited some money.

He claims to be laid back but very opinionated and can be single minded when pushed on certain topics and morals. He says he is very likeable and chatty and loyal to his friends.

At the age of 20 he changed his name to Achilles, Chills to his friends, but he soon changed it back. John believes he’s very persuasive and good with words which means he can convince people to come round to his way of thinking. He likes to think he looks like David Beckham because he’s a good looking bloke and he takes care of his appearance, using an anti-aging light to stop wrinkles so he can keep hold of his looks.

He is single – mainly because he thinks all girls are too much work. He doesn’t mind that he’s single and doesn’t have a problem getting with the ladies but he knows looks only get you so far and you need a personality as well. To him, sex means ‘making myself feel better’.

John admits he will do anything it takes to win the show and believes he’ll be a good asset to the house as he’d be funny and argumentative. His dream would be to have daring people and hot girls in the house with him.”
