BIG WORLD; BB opens doors to this bizarre bunch.
A RUSSIAN boxer, a Brazilian bisexual and an Oxford Uni graduate are among the motley crew who entered the Big Brother house last night.
Others hail originally from places as diverse as Iran and India, in the most culturally diverse series so far.
But don't expect lots of high-brow chat about different backgrounds - much of the focus this year will probably be on the battle between two home-grown glamour girls.
Karly Ashworth, 21, from Fife aspires to do full-time glamour work.
And Cheshire's Sophie Reade, 20, has already shown off her 30GG breasts in magazines including Playboy, although she says she has never told her family...What a way to find out.
Another person in for a rude awak-eninis Freddie George Fisher, who lives in a stately home, doesn't own a TV and claims he "doesn't have a clue" how Big Brother works.
And expect fireworks between Siavash Sabbaghpour, who thinks ugly people should not be allowed to have children, and mum-of-two Saffia Corden who is fed up of men.
All contestants have to complete tasks to win official housemate status before Sunday, or face the boot.
Here are the not-so-sweet 16...
