Day 66: What can we learn about housemates from their CVs?

Nineteen hopefuls applied for the highly coveted position of winner of Big Brother 2014, and after nine bittersweet weeks, you've helped us whittle it down to the final six. But who really has the skills to bag themselves the winner's title? Today's task required housemates to complete a CV detailing just why they're qualified to be a finalist.

We already know that teamwork and communication skills may be sometimes lacking for some of our housemates, but what other nuggets of information can we learn about the finalists from their carefully-crafed CVs? Let's have a look:

Ash

Ash

1. Pav's not the only guy with psychology credentials. Our main man from Manchester achieved an A-Level in both Psychology and Law. 

2. Ash believes that it isn't his positive attitude or immature side that makes him stand out from the rest. It's his height.

3. In five years, Ash sees himself 'living the dream'. What dream exactly? We'll have to wait and see.

Ashleigh

Ashleigh

1. Ashleigh believes that one of her biggest weaknesses is giving people too many chances. She might be right, Helen has had a million and one after all.

2. The young girl from Derry achieved a less-than-impressive D for GCSE drama. Don't worry Ashleigh, you get an A* from us for House drama.

3. If her CV is anything to go by, Ashleigh might not be the best at completing everything she starts. She missed two whole sections on how she deals with House conflict. 

Chris

Chris

1. If Chris were a film character, he would be George from 'Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf?'. Don't worry, we had to research that one too. 

2. He claims to deserve nothing, he's unsure of what he's doing here and believes that he's only reached the final because he slipped through the net. Chin up Chris, the usual function of a CV is to sell yourself. 

3. When asked just what he brings to the show, Chris answered 'Gout'. 

Christopher

Christopher

1. Christopher was the only one to put 'Big Brother housemate' as his current occupation. A strong commitment to the cause, perhaps?

2. He identifies the most with Mrs. Doubtfire, believing that her attitude to life is the same as his own, i.e. 'jumping on beds, being inappropriate and always fond of a party'. Did he fall asleep through the first part, or all, of the film? 

3. Christopher may be a journalist now, but he's also worked as a production assistant, teacher, P.A and factory worker.

Helen

Helen

1. The Bolton lass achieved a rather lacklustre E in GCSE Maths. While she might have agreed to honour last week's money pact, it might have been recommended to let somebody else calculate the individual earnings.

2. Helen describes herself as trustworthy and 'the best secret keeper eveeeeeer!!!'. Her extra e's, not ours. 

3. Helen is loud on paper too. She used a total of thirteen exclamation marks throughout her CV. 

Pav

Pav

1. Pav believes that unlike his other housemates, he brings culture to the House.

2. He gave himself a rather precise 6.8 out of ten for an overall housemate rating. Just above average. Nothing too showy. 

3. If he were a film character, Pav would be Will Smith. He must have confused film character with actor.
