‘Big Brother Australia’ winner weighs in on THOSE photographs

The year was 2006. A handsome young man named James Brooksby was on the very top of the world, having just won Big Brother Australia and coolly pocketed $426,000 in consequence. By any measure, not bad.

Now, over a decade later, news.com.au decided to catch up with Brooksby, and made it a point to talk about his habit of wandering around the Big Brother House in the nude, and then that cachet of leaked nude photos, which happened to leak before leaked nude photos were a bonafide thing:

Q: There are ‘revealing’ photos of you on the internet from your time in the house. Does that bother you or are you comfortable with people seeing your body?

A: “It doesn’t really bother me. Some idiot leaked some personal ones which I wasn’t happy about but no one is immune from that these days it seems. I just make a point of never googling my name.”

You, however, have made no such point.
