Hazel starts her time in Big Brother with a dig at Georgia
MODEL Hazel O'Sullivan took a dig at Georgia Salpa last night as she followed in her footsteps by entering the Big Brother house.
The 24-year-old said her decision to enter the reality show was "to show that all models are not as boring as Georgia Salpa", with whom she once clashed for the affections of playboy Calum Best.
However, Georgia (inset) featured in the celebrity version of the Channel 5 show in 2012, whereas Hazel is in the non-celebrity version.
Viewers in Britain heard Hazel described last night as a "glamour model" who is "recently single". A Channel 5 press release added: "Articulate and feisty, Hazel is well known in Ireland for being the former girlfriend of rugby player Fergus McFadden. Hazel isn't afraid to manipulate people in the house.
"She's vindictive and always tries to get what she wants.
"Hazel frequents VIP circles in Dublin and often manages to get herself snapped with celebrities. She describes her upbringing as a 'bit crazy' and is very good at detaching herself from a situation and from people in general.
"Hazel always has more male friends than girls and when she started modelling, girls stopped talking to her.
"A former tabloid newspaper found her through her BEBO site and she has previously posed topless. Hazel considers her best personality trait to be that she can talk to anyone."
The model claimed she treated "everyone the same, regardless of their background" and that her worst personality trait is "I can be like a terrier sometimes -- snappy and irritable".
The ex-girlfriend of late boxer Darren Sutherland was recently signed by London-based International Model Management, and is hoping the new series of Big Brother will turn her into a UK star.
Hazel is expected to move to the UK after the series.
Another housemate who entered the house on Thursday night claimed to be a postman called Michael from Cork.
However he was later revealed to viewers as an actor hired to spin a web of deceit.
