|Big Brother 9|
Stephanie Jo McMichael is a housemate from Big Brother 9.
19-year-old Stephanie first appeared on television as a 13-year-old on Popstars: The Rivals. However after reaching the final 25 contestants, producers discovered she had lied about her age, after claiming she was 16. Stephanie was forced to leave the show and missed out on a chance to become a member of Girls Aloud as a result.
She now sings and plays guitar in a band called the Kinky Minks but is focusing more on her studies. Stephanie says she feels strongly about politics, and says that "thick" people make her angry as well as people who accuse her of having a boob job, as her breasts are real. She's attracted to "fit, tall, dark and rich men" and once dated Big Brother 6 winner Anthony Hutton.
A confessed germophobe, she can't touch door handles for fear of catching germs, and also has phobias of bats and moths. She says her life philosophy is "do what you want and don't care". She describes herself as ruthless, and confesses she would read her friend's diary if she found it.
Stephanie likes playing poker and chess, and takes her "trendy" nan to the bingo. She says she wants to do Big Brother to earn a quick buck and invest it, and wants to be the most famous contestant ever.
Big Brother 9Edit
Stephanie was nominated during Week 1 because the housemates discovered Mario and Lisa's relationship, failing in her task to hide it. She became the first housemate to be evicted on Day 9 with 48% of the public vote.
