What is your plan to survive in the House? Lots of wine and cigarettes.

What will most annoy the other housemates about you? My strong opinions and morals.

What will you do if you don't win? A post graduate degree in Art History.

What's your biggest secret? I smoke and my mum will go mad when she finds out.

People say they will do anything to win. Where would you draw the line? Humiliating people.

Before Big Brother, what was your claim to fame? Getting 20/20 for my Italian Renaissance essay in Art History.

Describe your perfect Valentine's dinner? Cook dinner at home for my boyfriend and eat it by the window.

Why Big Brother? To pay off my Mum's mortgage! And so my Dad can see me on television.

Big Brother 5[]

Shell first faced the public vote on Day 50, when all housemates, aside from Michelle and Jason, faced eviction. Shell survived the eviction, after receiving just 3.74% of the vote to evict. On Day 64, Shell faced the public vote, along with every other housemate, once again and survived. Shell then proceeded on to reach the Final where she finished in fourth place, with 9% of the 4-way vote to win.
