A PENWITH College student who describes himself as "an 18-year-old Mr Bean with fake teeth" is hoping to win a place on Big Brother.
Ben Bailey sent his audition video for the Channel Five show to The Cornishman's Facebook page, outlining why he thought he should represent Cornwall on the reality TV programme.
He describes himself as "crazy" and "mental" and says he often dances Gangnam-style in the shower - at one stage taking out his false teeth as he explains how he lost his own teeth falling out of a tree when he was thirteen.
"I think I'd make a brilliant contestant for Big Brother because, to start off with, I'm unpredictable, you never know what's around the corner with me, I'm absolutely insane and I'm mental," he tells the camera in the two-minute video. "If I could describe myself as anyone really it would be Mr Bean."
The team behind Big Brother is currently on the look-out for contestants in Cornwall and is coming to Redruth on Thursday, Falmouth on Friday and Truro on Saturday.
