Big Brother Australia housemate Tim isn’t just Tim the university student who is taking ten years and counting to finish his science degree. People have seen him on TV before, probably more than enough of him. As fans of the show have noted, Tim famously streaked on Rihanna’s tour plane in 2012.
The 29-year-old was not just your ordinary Environmental Science student from NSW, he was also DJ and presenter of the regional music show Hit List TV, which was axed in 2011.
And more notably, the wild housemate made headlines when he ran nude through an airplane full of frustrated journalists waiting for Rihanna to come out.
Rihanna was on a promotional trip for her album Unapologetic, which involved flying more than a hundred of journalists around the world for a week on a Boeing 777. But the Grammy Award-winning singer refused to come out of her room on the plane, which left the journalists restless for her appearance.
They were chanting the singer’s name, begging her to come out and talk to them. Still, Rihanna stubbornly stayed in her room for unknown reasons. So rather than wait for the journalists to hold mutiny, Tim generously provided the entertainment and distraction by running naked from end to end.
And it was all caught on camera.
It’s not known why Nine Network decided to leave a big portion out of Tim’s CV, telling the audience that he was just a university student who is taking a decade to finish his course.
He is not the only voice talent in the house. Heidi is also a DJ who co-presents the Newcastle program Heidi, Heath, & Normy Show on Southern Cross Austereo’s NXFM.
Tim is currently nominated for eviction and is living in the Halfway side of the house with Jade, Drew, Jasmine, Sharon and Mikkayla.
