Courtney Act Wins “Celebrity Big Brother UK”

You're a winner, baby!

Courtney Act didn’t walk away with the crown on the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but she was a winner on tonight’s season finale of Celebrity Big Brother UK. Courtney Act (whose real name is Shane Jenek) was a fan favorite this season, educating her fellow housemates on LGBT and trans issues, and even having a bromance with former Apprentice star Adam Brady, thought Courtney was “hot,” even though he is straight.

 

The winner of #CBB 2018 is.... @courtneyact! Here's the moment @EmmaWillis broke the news (and the internet). #CBBFinal

 

Courtney’s victory was extra sweet since the top prize was between her and Ann Widdecombe, a former Member of Parliament who made headlines for her homophobic remarks in the house.

 

“It doesn’t matter how old you are, if you’re racist you’re a racist. If you’re homophobic, you’re homophobic,” Brady told Gay Times, when asked about Widdecombe. “I don’t think age can be used as an excuse. Prejudice is prejudice. It doesn’t matter what shape it comes in, or size, or age – it’s still prejudice.”

 

Widdecombe also refused to address Jenek as Courtney when Jenek was in drag, even calling Courtney “a tart.”

 

Courtney was shocked by her win tonight, adding that her victory was slightly ironic since the theme for this season of CBB was “Year of the Woman.”

 

“I guess coming into the house is validation that it’s okay to be different” Courtney told CBB host Emma Willis.

 

The former Drag Race contestant made the most memorable entrance of the housemates this season, when she had a wardrobe malfunction as she entered the house—but now she leaves a newly crowned winner.

I haven't watched the series, but I have seen occasional clips because I follow Shane and Courtney on social media. I'm thrilled he won, though I'm disappointed that Ann Widdecombe got to the final two. It's a bit like Macron beating Le Penn in the French election: great that he won, but disappointing she was ever in serious contention.

The US version is supposed to be airing soon.

 

 

One season in the regular Czech version there was a Belami model as a house guest.
