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.

See the video below. Please note, there is some mild swearing:

    I wish Ben all the very best. Only to say this over the top trait seems to be one of the main characteristics of some Cornish these days.

    This video makes me sad. Since when has 'crazy' and 'mental' been considered a beneficial personality trait? I suppose he will fit the Big Brother profile nicely, if that were anything to aspire to.

    I really wonder about the mentality of those who produce so many trashy "reality" TV shows and those who watch them For someone to aspire to appear on one shows a complete lack of real ambition as well as lack of taste.
