Dennis McHugh is a housemate from Big Brother 9.


Dennis describes himself as egotistical, flamboyant, and competitive - and he lives for getting attention. A dancer, as well as dance teacher, Dennis says that things that make him happy are having his ego massaged, dancing, singing and performing.

Dennis says if he could make any law, it would be that everyone must wear fake tan, and his dream job is to be a dancer and then perhaps a personal shopper. On a typical day he stresses out in front of the mirror for hours, and gets changed about three times before going out. He says he always gets comments on his "fabulous" eyes and sparkling white teeth. He loves Will and Grace, and says that the personality of character Karen is the closest resembling his own personality.

In the Big Brother House, Dennis thinks fellow housemates would nominate him out of jealousy. He says he would stop at nothing to win a task, and there's nothing he wouldn't do in the house. He claims he'd rather try anything once than live life knowing he never tried. He thinks he'll be an "agony aunt" for other housemates and thinks that people will remember him simply as "wow".

Big Brother 9[]

On Day 23, Dennis was ejected from the House for spitting in Mohamed's face during a row.
