I'm a long time reader but first time poster so forgive me for my primitive profile. But I've got a question for all of you. I am aware of one housemate this year who not only didn't audition but didn't even apply to be on the show but was hand selected by the production team to be on the show and is still very much alive in the game. I don't wish to name the housemate in question because I don't feel as though it's my place to do so and I don't want to jepodise the opportunity they've been afforded. However I would like to know if anyone knows of anything similar to this happening in previous seasons?
