A Sydney-based musical theatre performer and gay dad, one Big Brother contestant is set to shake things up in the reboot the popular reality series. 

Garth Saville, one of the 2020 contestants on the Channel Seven show, decided to enter because at 50 years old, he was “looking for adventure and inspiration.”

Labelling himself as a loud, fun and naughty housemate, Garth said he is excited to get to know a group of new people who are all vastly different to each other and have to co-exist as best they can.

“So excited for everyone to see Hurricane Garth enter the Big Brother house in a wave of glittery fabulousness,” he wrote on social media. “Get ready for a wild ride.”

The soon to be reality star describes himself as a “Glitter Aficionado, Dog Lover and Gay Dad.”

 Garth said he is passionate about musical theatre, which he performs in and directs – a massive advantage in the house. 

He added that by being a big personality, he could stand out from other contestants. 

“I am a born showman, so I love attention,” Garth said. 

The 50-year-old said he is not looking forward to being away from technology, family and the essential things in life like going for a drive for a getaway.

Garth also said he wouldn’t be a fan of fellow housemates who try to dictate, or who won’t communicate properly.

 However, Garth said he knows that if he were to take out the competition, he would use the prize money to buy an investment property. 

Big Brother announced the 20 housemates who will appear on the reality TV program ahead of Monday night’s premiere. 

The contestants range from 19 to 62 years of age and will compete in a series of “Survivor-style” challenges to win a $250,000 cash prize.

The Big Brother reboot will premiere on June 8 at 7:30pm on Seven and will be hosted by Sonia Kruger.
