Reality TV legend Nadia Almada has offered some valuable advice to fellow trans housemate Hallie, who was the third person to be evicted from the house on Friday, October 27th. Despite not reaching the finale of the ITV reality series, 18-year-old youth worker Hallie left a lasting impression on her housemates and the nation by courageously coming out as a trans woman during her second day in the house. In a touching moment of solidarity, the other housemates showed their support for her and shared their own pronouns.
However, in the days leading up to her eviction, Hallie had clashed with some of her housemates due to her mischievous pranks. She played tricks like taking and hiding their possessions and broke Big Brother rules twice by communicating in code with fellow contestant Olivia and discussing nominations.
As a result of these actions, she was nominated for eviction by five housemates and was subsequently voted out by the public on Friday.
Nadia Almada, a former Big Brother star who was the first and only trans woman to win Big Brother UK in 2004, has now offered some guidance to Hallie. Prior to Hallie’s eviction, Nadia expressed her concerns for the young TV star. She mentioned that despite Hallie’s claims of maturity, she perceives Hallie as emotionally immature at this stage.
Nadia, who was 27 when she won the show, reflected on her own experiences and the significant adult decisions she made at the age of 18. She emphasized that Hallie should make wiser choices. However, Nadia also recognized that Hallie is just 18 and suggested that she should be given some leeway. She hoped that Hallie has the right people around her, including her supportive mother, to guide her through this journey.
Nadia also revealed that if Hallie had not been evicted, she would have been more than willing to pass on her crown to a new queen in town. On a recent show, Hallie’s friend and fellow rulebreaker Olivia expressed concern that Hallie’s eviction might be related to her being trans, considering the declining tolerance of trans individuals in the UK in recent years.
Big Brother continues to air on ITV2 and ITVX every Sunday to Friday.
