IN a first for Big Brother, a chaste, non-drinking Mormon will be one of the contestants this year.

Rebecca, 23, says she has never drunk alcohol or worn a bikini, usually prerequisites for female contestants in the series, entering its seventh series tonight.

|Mormons, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, refrain from any involvement in delinquent, deviant, or anti-social behaviour.

Viewers will be looking on with curiosity to see if Rebecca can survive. Is it possible for her to win? "Absolutely," she said.

This series, hosted by Gretel Killeen, will feature older housemates rather than the young and voluptuous team from last year's house.

The contestants include a lawyer, a real estate agent and a 32-year-old truck driver. The NSW contestants are personal trainer Emma, 24, retail assistant Kara, 18, and Harrison, a 20-year-old carpenter.

Executive producer Kris Noble also promises that viewers will identify with someone in the house. "They will be quite different this year," Mr Noble said.

Big Brother will put its latest batch of contestants in lockdown for the Gold Coast house tonight.

"It's an isolated outing for them," Mr Noble said.
