Big Brother viewers rushed to praise housemate Hallie after she made a tearful and candid confession during Thursday’s show.
The 18-year-old admitted she was ‘so used to being alone’ during a chat about life with 14 other people in the iconic home.
The emotional outpouring also saw her tell NHS manager Kerry, 40, what she hoped to achieve during her time on the show.
Wiping away tears, Hallie, who bravely came out as transgender in an earlier episode, confessed: “The only thing I want to get out of this experience is to learn to open up.”
On X, formerly Twitter, a viewer wrote: “Hallie is an impressive young woman.”

Honest: The 18-year-old admitted she was ‘so used to being alone’ during a discussion about life with 14 other people in the iconic house
A second said: ‘Hallie joins (Love Island’s) Gemma Owen and is the youngest in their respective series but the most mature.
And: ‘Hallie from Big Brother 2023 is the only girl who shows girl code and friendship in that house! She is always there for everyone, she is such a beautiful soul.’
While someone else said: ‘Hallie, you’re bloody beautiful. When you are 18 years old, your family can be proud.’
Another fan gushed: ‘Hallie is beautiful. Tell her Big Brother’.
Earlier in the episode, housemate Farida broke down in tears as she opened up about her family and her religion.
The Muslim make-up artist, 50, opened up to Hallie, who viewers have labeled the house’s ‘therapist’.
Farida struggled to contain herself as she talked about her difficult childhood in which her parents lost their business and the family became homeless.
Farida then said she is “holding on to her prayers” to deal with the grief and “trauma” of losing her father.

I love her! On X, formerly Twitter, a viewer wrote: ‘Hallie is an impressive young woman’
Hallie was quick to comfort her housemate after doing the same for Kerry moments earlier after she struggled to eat salad in the house.
One viewer told X, formerly known as Twitter: ‘Hallie is just a cutie, isn’t she?’
With a second writing: ‘I’m waiting outside the Big Brother house for a consultation from Hallie.’
Angry: Earlier in the episode, housemate Farida burst into tears as she opened up about her family and her religion – before being comforted by Hallie
Someone else commented: ‘I hope Hallie doesn’t get burned out taking on everyone’s emotions, she’s only 18 and the adults lean on her a lot. Hopefully Kerry will get a pork sausage soon.”
And: ‘Farida and Hallie have the most beautiful conversations about life. First about Hallie as a transgender and now about Farida and her religion. This is Big Brother in its purest form’.
With another saying: ‘I love Big Brother, shows Kerry worrying about vegetables and poor Farida getting angry about her dead father, the combination’.

PROFESSION: Stay-at-home mom
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE PRIZE MONEY IF YOU WON? ‘I think my first priority is to get my living situation in order. The housing crisis is just ridiculous and my housing situation is unstable. It brings me a lot of mom guilt because I have a young child. It is my biggest drive and motivation to win.”
WHAT IS IT LIKELY NOMINATED FOR? “Being grumpy and acting like I don’t want to be there, even though in my heart I do. They could nominate me because I might not be involved or because I don’t pay equal attention to everyone. They may feel left out, but there’s nothing I can do about that.’

I like doing something different and I think this is the next challenge I want to overcome. I want to show people what pageant girls are really like and debunk many stereotypes surrounding them. I also show what it’s like to be a woman who has worked in male-dominated industries. I want to show that women can do anything they want.’

WHAT IS IT LIKELY NOMINATED FOR? “Being the biggest fuss, eating all the food and being the loudest roommate.”

PROFESSION: Customer-service employee
What part of the experience are you most looking forward to? “I’m most excited to be surrounded by so many people from different walks of life.

PROFESSION: Dental therapist
WHAT ARE YOU LIKELY TO BE NOMINATED FOR? ‘Probably just because it’s annoying. In Wales we have the saying: “I do it this way now.” So if I were going to make dinner and leave a plate aside, I have every good intention of washing it, but I’d say, “I’ll do it now in a minute,” and it could be three. hours later before I do it. So probably for crazy stuff like that.”

They would say I was a very strange child.’
PROFESSION: NHS manager
WHY ARE YOU APPLYING TO BECOME A BIG BROTHER HOUSEHOLD? ‘I think the program is great. For me, it’s the ultimate reality TV show ever. I have multiple sclerosis and the reason I never signed up before is because I always saw those huge, grand stairs to get into the house. It just felt a little unfeasible because I was in a wheelchair for the first three years of my illness. When I saw it coming back and looking for real people from all walks of life, I thought, this is my year.”
