First Ep:-

Episode 1

Anna

16f4d3d2-5529-409f-bc1d-414914e666d9_412x232.jpg

Anna Watts is a 24-year-old model and business woman from London. She's single.

After talking investor friends into backing her financially, Anna is setting up two start-up businesses - a clothing line and a model academy as well as modeling herself.

She says that 'money equals stability' and is quite fond of making big bucks (she bought her first penthouse flat at 20 years old).

Anna is extremely competitive and likes to 'eliminate rubbish people' around her. She also likes to shock people who think on first impressions that she's an airhead.

The model/business mogul describes herself as a bad loser who 'can't bear not getting things right, especially if it's down to other people.'

She also considers herself 'massively opinionated' and said she wouldn't like being shipwrecked with people who are as opinionated as she is. Ah, well.

As for romance - Anna is single and ready to mingle so lots of potential frolicking to be had. Anna says that lots of girls do tend to think she's 'a bitch' though, but she has no intention to 'smooth the corners' on her competitive ruthlessness (obvs).

Flora

Flora Bradley-Watson is a 22-year-old Politics graduate from Dorset. She's single.

In contrast to some of her fellow island mates, Flora has been a member of the Green Party since she was 17 and considers herself a 'postmodern feminist'. Part of her reason for wanting to be on Shipwrecked is to see if she can get rid of 'gender binary' on the island - stereotypical male and female roles, such as building, cooking and sunbathing. Good luck with that.

Flora had a rural upbringing in Dorset, but she thinks it's 'vulgar' to talk about money. Her parents ran a B&B where they bred their own chickens and lambs that their father would kill, so she's not too fussed about slaughtering animals on the island.

What she IS fussed about though is authority - nobody tells her what to do, no not her. And not only does she like a debate, she's really good at it too - Flora was a member of her university debating society in Bristol. If you cross her, she'll 'give as good as she gets', hence her nickname - the Pocket Rocket.

Flora says that people are often lulled into a false sense of security by her 'innocent face', but don't be fooled, the Pocket Rocket means business!

Tristan

d68f8d79-f0d8-4fa0-9cee-5c97059ae403_412x232.jpg

Tristan Tate is a 23-year-old professional kick-boxer from Luton. He's single.

Despite kicking people for a living, Tristan considers himself to be the "intellectual superior of 99.9% of the people that he meets." Impressive, considering he was educated in "one of the worst high schools in the UK" (according to Tristan).

Tristan was a straight A student but chose not to go to Uni as he wanted to focus on his kick-boxing instead. He was raised in a tough environment - often copying passages out of encyclopaedias instead of watching telly, and made to do hundreds of sit-ups and push-ups as punishments for naughtiness. He's not bitter about it though, he says it's made him the man he is today.

T.T likes the ladies, and goes to clubs to meet people, but he's not really the partying type. And Tristan's views of women are, erm, a little pre-historic. "Women should be useful," he says, "Cooking and cleaning etc."

Incredibly keen to win Shipwrecked, Tristan says he's prepared to lie, cheat and deceive other islanders for his own personal gain. His strategy is "divide and conquer - find divisions in people and exploit them." Crikey. Did we mention he's single?

Joseph

df859dd1-5fad-425b-a44d-a9f53d4796e8_412x232.jpg

Joseph is a 21-year-old student/barman from Rotherham. He's single.

Having grown up in a working class area of Rotherham and worked a paper round since he was 14 to help support his own education, Joseph is proud of his working class roots. In fact, he's SO proud of who he is that he's had his own name tattooed on his tummy! And he describes himself as a "massive socialist."

Joseph has fire in his belly and loves a heated debate (especially with Conservatives) but he also loves a good party. It's all about "the maximisation of pleasure" to Joseph, which probably explains why he's got no desire to settle into a relationship. Yes ladies, he's a bit of a player. But don't worry; he likes to be up front about it.

The "hedonistic socialist" also hates routine, doesn't mind having enemies and thinks rules are there to be broken. Sounds like a recipe for Island drama...

Stephen

ad86031b-dd15-4124-b374-9aaa071eb707_412x232.jpg

Stephen Bear is a 21-year-old roofer from Walthamstow in London. He's single.

Stephen 'The Bear' lives with his parents and has had a working class upbringing - his dad is a market trader and his mum works as a teaching assistant.

He's a lad's lad who loves nothing more than "getting ready, going out and steaming through birds!" He likes being the centre of attention and doesn't take life too seriously. But what Bear does take seriously is his appearance - it's all about white teeth, good tan and a "strong hairline." He sees "a lot of birds" and is definitely a bit of a player. But he's quite the gentleman too - insisting on paying for everything on dates, opening doors and doing traditional man stuff.

On the island, The Bear's got no problem putting the graft in - he's happy to do lots of heavy work while the girls concentrate on sunbathing (aww). By his own admission, Bear's not the sharpest sandwich in the lunchbox - for example he isn't quite sure who the Prime Minister is - but he's a good laugh, a hard worker and generally pretty likeable. Except, perhaps, if you're a feminist...

Jamie

b5249287-a6cc-40fb-8051-2ebd6048def5_412x232.jpg

Jamie Tyler, aka "Kitten", is a 21-year-old hairdresser and call centre worker from The Wirral. He's single.

Kitten lives at home with his parents, brother and their seven (yes, seven) cats and a dog in Prenton. He grew up near a council estate, which he much preferred hanging out on than being around "snobby people." And to this day, Kitten's not a big fan of "poshies".

He describes his unique look as "a bit Japanese, rock n' roll Manga" and he took his nickname from the movie Breakfast On Pluto. Kitten has no interest in "giving in to commercial society" and reckons most people look like JLS, "which is dead boring."

When it comes to romance, Kitten believes that "sexuality does not exist" and refuses to label himself as gay or straight. But he does admit that most of his partners are male and he's never actually slept with a girl. Kitten loves a good argument - he describes himself as "brutally honest" - and has strong opinions on pretty much everything. He's also a vegetarian and is looking forward to the inevitable dispute over killing the island pigs. Androgynous Manga-kittens saving pigs on a desert island? Only on Shipwrecked...

Danni

b0a8c3ea-f42b-45a1-8d23-cfeeebf5e9cc_412x232.jpg

Danni Mannix is a 22-year-old party girl from Essex. She's single.

Essex girl Danni has a number of passions in life. She has a huge obsession with fashion, handbags, hair and make-up, she's an active young Conservative volunteer, and is passionate about Criminal Justice issues after finishing a Criminal Justice degree at the University of Westminster. 'I want to reform the Criminal Justice system through its policies,' she says.

Danni loves heated discussions and is well up for a verbal ruck. If any islanders were to say 'something without really having a clue what they're talking about then BOOM I'm off on one!' She can't stand 'ignorant or narrow-minded people', especially if they say things without thinking about it.

But it's not all about politics and debate with Danni Mannix (AKA 'Mannix') - she's a party girl too. You'll find her out on the Essex party scene most Thursday to Sunday nights.

Ms Mannix is an outrageous flirt but if she was to find a boy on the island, he'd need to 'have banter, a brain and good fashion sense'. She's not into clean-cut types though - despite her political persuasion, her taste in boys is 'rough and ready'.

Mannix is a self-confessed 'bulldog' - she's super competitive and won't stop until she's won. She's hoping to have shedloads of fun and banter on the island, but will also be doing everything she can to get into power like her favourite political party...

Dominique

84a75965-efc2-4ddd-8874-e060a71f10bd_412x232.jpg

Dominique James is a 23-year-old retail assistant from London. She's single.

With a natural party attitude and a habit of wanting to motivate people, loud charismatic Dominique is likely to be a big character on the island.

Dominique currently lives at home with her mum and brother and has a large close-knit family with over 20 cousins. She used to have a tempestuous relationship with her mum when she was younger, but the two of them are now best mates and love going roller skating together.

After completing her Sports Science and Coaching degree at University, Dominique got a job in Topshop, where she works part-time. But she wants to be a PE teacher.

Dominique describes herself as "ditzy" and her friends say she should be blonde. She has fake nails, fake eyelashes and one of her favourite items is her £400 weave.

Unlike her love for her weave, Dominique HATES two-faced people that bitch behind your back - she's much more of a 'say it to my face' girl. And that applies to men too: "I've been known to go up to guys and tell them they are fit!" she says. "Because of my personality, I'm proper in your face."

Micah

69dccbfd-8a9b-40f0-97c5-8439545b8809_412x232.jpg

Micah Gill (AKA MC Brimes) is a 20-year-old MC and YouTube star from Croydon. He's single.

As a youngster, Micah grew up in Streatham Hill. He was quick to lose his temper, which sometimes led to confrontation. But like a fine wine, Micah mellowed with age, and he sees life much more positively these days. He currently lives in South Croydon.

After his A-levels, Micah dropped out of his BTEC Media course to pursue his career as an MC. He currently rhymes with funky house DJs on the London and university circuits under his pseudonym MC Brimes.

And when he's not emceeing, Micah writes a blog, pranks people and records his own YouTube show called You Got Game. Speaking of games - Micah says that's exactly what life is, and he's playing to win. 'There's no such thing as second place,' he says. 'In life, you are either a winner or a loser.'

When it comes to ladies, Micah says he's flirtatious and doesn't mind using cheesy chat-up lines. Like the time when he stopped a girl on the street saying, 'I'm a musician, would you mind following me to the studio so I can look at you for inspiration to write a love song?' With lines like that, he's gotta be good Shipwrecked value.

Kate

50f80257-9ef1-427c-a808-f9d4e784d17a_412x232.jpg

Kate Davies is a 23-year-old events manager/wannabe entrepreneur from London. She's single.

Having been an intern at an acting agency - where she realised she has "the gift of the gab" and that she's "an excellent sales woman" - Kate wants to own her own bar or run her own entertainment business. But she's currently unemployed.

She describes herself as "smarter than the average" because of her partly private education - she won a scholarship at a fancy school (it was actually an all-boys school the first year it turned mixed she was one of only 15 girls, which might explain why she's a bit of a "geezer-bird").

People tend not to cross Kate apparently, cos they're "usually scared of her", and if they DO dare to challenge her, she goes "absolutely mental" to get her own way. She can't stand "posh people, rough types, jazz-hands drama types, whiney people and extreme people", which describes about 60 percent of the islanders!

Kate has been single since being dumped by a boyfriend at Uni, whose life she "made hell" for the following year. She now has "zero desire for a relationship" until she's ready for kids.

She sees herself as a natural born leader and wanted to be on Shipwrecked for the competition and the money. She says that in life she has "sidekicks" and expects that she'll have these on the island too and plans to get them to do her dirty work. So to clarify: she's dominant, controlling, loud and scary. Sounds like the perfect candidate!

Swear every black man has bars

Yet to meet a black man who is not some sort of entertainer or gangster

Oh and sports person

Only reason they are good at sports is because they chase wild animals in the jungle and their DNA evolved or when they were running away from White folk who gave them jobs and a place to lay their head when they helped them escape the jungle

Blacks=pathetic race
