At a time when gay cowboys are all the rage thanks to Brokeback Mountain, reality TV’s Big Brother has got in on the act with housemate David, a gay grazier from rural Queensland.

But upon going into the house the 26-year-old decided he would add his own twist by not revealing his sexuality to the other housemates.

According to Big Brother spokesperson David Brown, it was a decision the housemate made by himself, without any pressure from the producers or Network Ten.

This is all his own doing, and he’s decided to have a bit of fun with it, Brown told Sydney Star Observer.

The fact that David is gay is not a secret to the world, but he decided he would keep it a secret from his housemates, none of whom he had ever met before. It could be a bit of a strategy.

The farmer, who lives five hours west of Brisbane, reveals on his Big Brother profile he attended an all-male boarding school and is fantastic at sex.

Meanwhile there may be another quasi-queer housemate in the form of Elise, 21, from NSW. I’ve only ever dated men but am considering women, although I’m a bit scared, she is quoted as saying on the official Big Brother website.
