Ahmed Aghil is a housemate from Big Brother 5.


What is your plan to survive in the House? No plan - nothing - I just live day by day. Want to be myself, don't want to prostitute myself.

Who do you think you most resemble from history and why? Ghandi - admired him as he was non-violent. I hate violence. I also admire Lady Diana but I'm not like her.

What will most annoy the other housemates about you? I'm outspoken, I don't drink or smoke, I'm honest, not diplomatic. I have no strategy or plan to please them. I like to debate which might annoy them.

What will they love? I'm myself, straightforward, active intellectually/mentally, sometimes a good listener and I like to help people (emotionally).

What will most annoy you about the other housemates? Depends. I hate people who fart, are racist, discriminate - not active mentally (even if they are physical), just prostituting themselves.

What will you do if you don't win? I will accept it and return to normality.

What's your biggest secret? I have more than one - like to keep them confidential. (Will tell them if in the mood.)

Tell us a joke. A man and woman are making love in the pitch dark and they hear the door open. The woman shouts "Oh no, my husband's back!" The man says " I am your husband."

What item of clothing could you not live without? Music. I love dancing. Telephone, water (shower), clean sheets, washing machine.

Before Big Brother, what was your claim to fame? In Italy I was on TV (talk show) with my sister who is a writer.

What is your best chat up line? Depends on the person. Compliments! e.g hair or perfume. "I would like to meet your parents." Why? "They've done a good job."

Big Brother 5[]

Ahmed was first nominated for eviction on Day 11. He received a total of seven nominations that week. On Day 15, it was revealed that Ahmed would not be fake evicted from the house, as he had received the least amount of votes from the public. On Day 39, Ahmed was nominated for eviction once again. On Day 43, he survived the public vote over new housemate Becki. On Day 50, all housemates that were "Privates" in the weekly shopping task, faced the public vote. He was evicted after having received 56% of the vote to evict.
