Reports suggest Stephen Bear is the lowest paid housemate in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother house.
Recent reports suggest Stephen Bear will be receiving £12,000 for his time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, the lowest pay check of all the housemates!
This is low compared to other housemates including Samantha Fox, Christopher Biggins who will be receiving over £100,000.
The Sun Newspaper reports that Bear was willing to accept the low offer due to the chances to make money once he has left the house including photo shoots and interviews.
“He knew he would be one of the stars of the show and really pushed for a bumper pay cheque but the producers wouldn’t budge,” a source alleged.
“He had hoped he would be able to cashin with big bucks magazine deals with his girlfriend after leaving the house, having split with his manager and signed to the same management team as Lillie to make it happen.
“But now that he has cheated on her with Chloe Kahn he will have to work hard to build the relationship back up again.”
However, it seems that Lillie is not open to forgive Bear as she entered the house earlier in the week to talk to Bear:
“You asked me to be there when you got home, I was supporting you 100%. The embarrassment and humiliation I’ve had…this is all one big game to you, it is a joke at my expense.”
Bear later told BB in the Diary Room: “I can’t be with her; it’s not fair on her. I was adamant I wasn’t going to get with no one. Everything happens for a reason…she’s had a lucky escape from me. It took me 26 years to find someone I care about…”
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
