Default Question Thread with Raph

Yo guys, been meaning to do this for a while but if you guys want to know anything about the BB house (well as much as I can reveal) then here's the place to do it! Hit me up with questions and i'll try to get to all of them.

Thanks for all the support this summer, you all rock!

- Raph

Super well, Sue was a delight. Was nice to have more intellectually stimulating conversations, was harder once Sukhvinder left so it was lovely. And she always called me the Angel of the house which was super sweet. Also she had a big argument with Chanelle the night they all came back for a task but it was never shown

And Savannah is a sweet girl. She was scared of the confrontation a lot, so we did think BB was maybe not the best place for her, but she was harmless and always kind to me. The only thing I didnt like was when she said "I dont think racism exists in our world anymore" but not sure that was shown

Are parts of the show scripted?

Do producers enter the house and direct you?

Nothing is scripted.

And no never any direction whatsoever. And I LOVED it. Kieran often said how much better it was than EOTB because there he would be guided and on Big Brother we never were.

i did think the same, just too sweet for BB, i liked the dragon bit, the moth who was in the house, caused a bit of panic, like Charlotte, Kieran and Tom running away from that moth, and Savannah hiding under the blanket, i did find that funny


I Loved Sue on BB either , and she did have a argument with Channy, never shown but it would've made some lovely telly i think

Did you and/or any of the others take a memento from the BB house? I'd probably try to pinch a pillowcase or something.

What were Lotan and Kayleigh like in the house, did they deserve ejection?

What was Arthur's actual reason for leaving - was it ejection, or did he walk, or was it a mutual agreement? And why?

What are the subjects you cant reveal? (obviously don't breach your contract here but what kind if things are you banned from talking about?)

Have your opinions changed on Rylan?

Finally (for now), if you were the People's Housemate in week 1 who would you have evicted?

Sorry for so many!

I have always felt once in the BB house,it likely becomes impossible to stick to any plans or the way you'd like things to be and go.
Once in then,my question would be how hard is it,or how hard did you find it, to totally relax and go with the flow,or did you find it possible to just really get into things and love the experience.

You did superbly Raph, it was both great and a privilege to see you as a housemate and support you too.

Yes! Have my BB best dancer award, a pillowcase from Rose Cottage, the infamous DUCKS, a bandana from love, peace and harmony week, Chanelle's mask from her birthday, a flower from the wedding task, a bunch of things really.

But they also almost always took a lot of stuff off us, which was sad. For example, around week 4, when doing maintenance, they took our launch night badges which i'll always be sad about as I put it in my pocket every eviction, until that point.

No worries, always a delight to speak with you!

Lotan was so lovely in the house, he taught me how to roll cigarettes, exercised with me, cooked me salmon and broccoli, asked me about my life, tried to teach me sarcasm. Honestly a solid guy, I really liked him and no - he did not deserve to be removed in my opinion. And I said this in the house many times too that I felt sorry for him that he was put in that situation.

Kayleigh 100% did deserve to be ejected, she was so aggressive and a bit elitist - only wanted to hang out with people who had a 'fanbase' and had done reality TV.

Ah well there is one, can't reveal what happened with Arthur. Just a few things, will say if I shouldn't/wouldn't talk about it.

And if I had the power on launch night I probably would have evicted Kayleigh, got negative vibes from her from the start.

Thanks for the questions!!

Conrgats on runner-up Raph, it was great to watch you and so happy you got to experience your dream summer in the house

Did you think you were going to win when you got to the final 2?

Hi Raph,

Did you have any inkling as to who was going to win during your time in the house? And when was the moment you knew Thorn Rose Cottage was going to be an everlasting friendship group?

Well done in everything, btw. I only watched bits of the series, but it was cool watching someone from the forum in the house.

Who did you talk to about BB with during your time in the house, and were you ever told off for doing so?

Does Big Brother actually tell housemates when they have to go to sleep, and also lock the bedroom doors too? I'm sure I read somewhere that this happens.

What was the whole eviction process like? What did it include, how nerve-racking was it, etc??

I second this question, I might have misunderstood what Harry Amelia meant but I'm sure she said BB would sometimes tell them what rooms to be in?

I'd genuinely like to know the answer to this! ha!


Questions:

Were there any BB "essentials" that you were expecting to experience that you didn't?

When Andrew was cutting/colouring your hair why were you so against Hannah being sat nearby?

What was the average day like in the BB house in reality (time scales etc) as opposed to what we saw as HL's?

Hey Raph!If you were to go back into time, what is something you would have done different in the house?
How hard was it for you and the other HMs to make nominations?
btw thanks for spending ur time to do this...
oh one last question, were there any moments in the house you would like to share which were not included in the Daily Highlights shows?

What went on between you and Rachel Rice?

Has Chanelle somewhat changed your mind about recruits?

Did you think you had won when it was you v Isabelle in the final 2?

Thank you so much Joey, lovely to speak to you again.

I didn't really find it hard to be honest. At the start, on launch night I felt numb and super anxious but after that I found myself more and more with the flow each day and loved every single second of my time there. In terms of plans, my goal was to make the final so that I could live every day in that house and I was soo determined to achieve this goal and that's what guided most of my behaviour during my time in the house. But yeah it really is the best experience ever.
