Status: Runner-Up
Nomination(s) Received: 11

Ray Shah is a housemate from Big Brother 4.


Irish IT systems administrator Ray believes he'll be great in the House because he's chatty, outgoing and a real people person. The 25-year-old is a football fan and loves clubbing but one thing he WON'T miss about the outside world is daytime TV. Ray says if he could be reincarnated he would come back as a chicken!

Ray visits the gym five times a week, makes a mean spaghetti bolognaise and hates noisy eaters. He once had to dress up as a teapot and also celebrated St Patrick's Day by having a tattoo on his back.

Why Big Brother?: "I can go to bed at the crack of dawn, be myself, relax, have a good time, meet some interesting people and be in with a chance to win a lot of money for being me...why not?"

Will Most Miss: The gym, music, TV, going clubbing and Owls.

If Reincarnated, What Would You Come Back As?: A chicken - "So I wouldn't have to go through the nerve-wracking Big Brother audition process."

Big Brother 4Edit

On Day 39, Ray was nominated for eviction after receiving three nominations from his fellow housemates, alongside Gos and Nush. He survived the eviction on Day 44 with just 17.91% of the public vote. Ray left the House as the runner-up on Day 64 with 42.5% of the final public vote.
