English imports have always given us a bouncing good time. Linsey, Kerry Marie, Kelly Kay, Lorna Morgan. Bex Shiner was a late arrival in the British invasion that had seriously decreased in recent years but then reactivated with the emergence of Bex, Lily Madison, Katie Thornton and Danni Levy. We were able to photograph Bex in the USA because, like Katie and Danni, she doesn’t go bottomless.
Bex was a UK celebrity for being on Big Brother in 2008. After the glow of that exposure faded with time, as it does with all reality TV stars, Bex got into topless posing on late-night British adult TV shows that guys at home phone into. There’s nothing like this in the States. Bex still does it.
“Everyone used to say to me, ‘You should go on,’ because in England, being on Big Brother is all about having a big personality. It’s all about someone who stands out. So I went to one audition, and the guy said, ‘She’s too much. If we put her on the TV, she’s going to go a bit crazy.’ So he wouldn’t put me on, but it got to the point where the producers wanted me on so bad, they begged the psychologist to spend a week with me and my mom at our house so my mom could convince him I wasn’t crazy.”
Persistence paid off for Bex.
“It was just a thing to do because getting on Big Brother didn’t happen the first year I tried. And you can’t go on Big Brother until you’re 18, and they don’t like to put you on until you’re 19 or 20. Because it’s instant fame. You’re in every single newspaper, magazine and TV show. You’re everywhere in the UK. Not so much today but back then. They wait until you can deal with it.”
Eventually, Bex got evicted from the house.
“It was a good thing up until the point where it got to be too much. And then I thought, ‘I have to use this to my advantage. People want to see my boobs. Let’s do something with them.’ So I started using them to my advantage, and I got a new fan base. All those teenage girls went and all the adult guys came. Literally! So now I do chat TV. Guys can call me and talk to me, and we can interact.”
When she was in Florida, we shot a model recruiting video for BeASCOREModel.com with Bex as the hostess in that bikini and in a tank top. Her personality and her big, natural tits made her perfect for this kind of spokesmodel role.
