Jesus! Why does he hate himself so much? He calls himself every name under the sun. The poor lamb needs more cuddles.

Changing what he regards as an unseemly past into a newer, better person I guess. He certainly seems to have issues with what he's done before, although we don't really know yet.

Maybe he's only been out a year after some massive bank fraud? That's why people aren't posting on forums saying they know him, they're all still banged up!

Dexter is very clever, he knows exactly what gets the voters reaching for the phone.
He changes like the wind.
I don't believe for 1 second that he is a shy self loathing man, he is very confident.
In his line of work you need to be confident, easy to chat with, and have a knack of knowing what people want to hear.
His tears on each eviction night, are squeezed out imo.
Dexter knows sympathy voters are the key to grabbing the winners crown.
His gameplan let him down with his fellow housemates, but the upside is it got the voting public onside.
Clever Dexter..

I wouldn't characterise it as 'self-loathing'. For me that implies someone with much, much lower self-esteem than Dexter appears to have.

He doesn't loathe himself! It's clearly and act.

This is him humbling himself to look good. Don't you remember his advice to Jack on how to chat people up or behave on a date etc?

Dexter will be Mr Niceguy, Mr Humbleguy etc from now until the end. Maybe with one righteous argument in the mix, for good measure. I predict with Sam/Gina as they in his mind, are the competition to win. You mark my words.

Big Brother 2013 housemate Dexter Koh is a celebrity publicist from Liverpool who calls himself a “Jack of all trades, a social chameleon and master of only a few”. He claims he was also London’s highest paid male escort. Dexter has open-minded views on sex and culture. He can get outspoken during debates and dislikes “stupid people”.

Dexter Koh’s ex girlfriend has claimed that the Big Brother 2013 housemate is a ‘huge fake’.

Glamour model Danielle McMahon went out with the self-proclaimed sugar daddy for four months before he entered the house in June.

Speaking to The Scottish Sun newspaper, Danielle claimed that almost every aspect of Dexter’s Big Brother life was fake.

“He’s a real manipulator, he plays mind games and he mixes up stories. He’s a professional liar,” she told the tabloid this week. “I can’t even watch the show anymore because I can’t stand his lies.

“Everything about him is completely fake. He said he’s slept with 2,000 women, but I know for a fact that he’s only slept with eight.”

Danielle said Dex’s claims of being a “notorious” sugar daddy, strip club owner and PR guru were all made up.

“Everyone thinks he’s a sugar daddy and that he’s loaded — he’s not. He lives in a semi in Liverpool,” she explained. “He claims to have owned a strip club, but he hasn’t. He was a waiter in a strip club. He also said he was a celebrity magician. That’s another lie, he used to work in Hamleys toy shop.

“His main source of income was from papping Z-list celebrities. He just waits outside clubs for hours and makes money from that. When I met him back in December he had about 16,000 followers, and he told me three-quarters of them were fake.”

Even Dex’s mum confessed that a lot of what he said to get into the house was “exaggeration”, such as his tales of being London’s highest paid male escort.

“I’m not sure about the male escort bit – I think that was an exaggeration,” mum Ellen said last week. “I think years ago someone wanted to do an article.

“If someone says: ‘I’ll give you £6,000 for your name and picture’, you’d say yes wouldn’t you? I think it was actually more like £25,000.”

Dexter's website extracts:

As a young boy I was always interested in mastering the art of media manipulation and the dark arts of “PR”.

After learning my tradecraft as a paparazzi photographer I quickly developed, the skill set contacts, and insider knowledge needed to be one of the most creative “ Celebrity PR’s ” around today.

Not being afraid to put myself in the spotlight has been the key to cracking the media code and understanding the right time to “Spin & and make it a win.”

Having successfully created some of the most read front-page exclusives, “kiss and tells” & outrageous setups, I formed my own company Earth Horse PR, and gathered together the best of the best, from the world of journalism, photography, acting, & TV production.

I have one goal and one goal only, Get you or your brand the media attention you deserve for a price you want to pay.

I personally represent a diverse client base from all aspects of the entertainment industry, and treat all of my clients like A list stars.

If you have a talent or if you don’t,

We all work in the entertainment industry and we will need good press and honest advice form people that understand and have been in your position.

Unlike my competitors I don’t concentrate on personal appearances, as I feel that I have a duty of care to my clients to give them longevity in A industry that is renowned for being fickle & shallow.

We turn our clients into Media chameleons, the media is constantly evolving and so should you!

The advice I give is blunt- raw and to the point, myself and the team will carefully craft your Media future, and follow what’s current in this day and age!

Contact Me today and see what I can do for you .


I'm trying to figure out who the biggest fake is; and whether Dexter's own way of making a living or Gina's aparent approval of this makes him or her the bigger hypocrite. Thoughts?
