|Big Brother 11|
Mario Mugan is a housemate from Big Brother 11.
Born near Venice in Italy Mario is half British and half Italian. He lives in Essex and is currently unemployed.
Mario is fascinated by the paranormal and the potential powers of the mind, believing that 'we are all connected by a cosmic force but organised religion isn't relevant or needed'.
He doesn't believe that love truly exists, rather that it is 'an enforced emotion of jealously and fear'. He says he has learnt to not wear his heart on his sleeve and to trust no-one. He is often the dumper because he likes feeling like a big man.
Mario has a phobia of death and aging which means he constantly wears moisturiser and sunblock and always exercises 'to be young and beautiful'. He hates to see animals mistreated but he eats meat.
Mario is a massive Big Brother fan and he owns the Diary Room chair from Big Brother 7. His friends say he is a shallow narcissist but he is bored by Paris Hilton and Jordan wannabes. He admits to being vain, saying when he goes to a club even if he doesn't want to pull girls, he still wants to look attractive to them.
