Regina Bird, aka the 2003 winner of Big Brother Australia, has revealed that she was approached for the controversial Big Brother VIP cast but was later dumped for “better talent” and… what better talent?
Regina told TV Blackbox that conversations took place between her and the production company, but ultimately they decided to go another direction. The direction of evil.
“Everything happens for a reason. I’m not doing it this year, I was overlooked,” she said. “They contacted me, didn’t want me.”
The only ex Big Brother contestant that ended up on the show is political candidate Danny Hayes who starred on this year’s season of the show.
She added that after “seeing what people went in, they’ve picked and chosen to go on the show… if they do an all-stars my time will shine.”
The other stars confirmed for Big Brother VIP are Big Brother 2021 villain Danny Hayes; former AFL captain Dayne Beams; actress and model Ellie Gonsalves; fashion designer and model Imogen Anthony (Kyle Sandilands‘ ex); Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power; model and Instagrammer Josh Carroll; Survivor King Luke Toki; NRL player Matt Cooper; former political advisor to Donald Trump, Omarosa; and Megan Markle’s older brother, Thomas Markle Jr.
Great time abroad for fun and glad to be back in #California on the campaign trail! https://t.co/3FrepPj2SB

Woman’s Day previously reported that all kinds of celebs have been frothing to join the new rendition of Celebrity Big Brother ever since it was announced.
“Celebrity agents are falling over themselves to cast their talent,” a Big Brother VIP insider told the publication.
“The Seven Network is keen on getting real celebrities with real credibility.”
If ya ask me, Reggie has more credibility than every Big Brother VIP cast member combined.
Here’s the Big Brother VIP teaser, which Seven dropped earlier today:
