Transsexual TV show winner sets sights on sex
August 10, 2004
LONDON — The Portuguese transsexual bank clerk who won Britain's fifth
"Big Brother" television series said Sunday that she was desperate
for her first sexual experience as a woman.
Nadia Alamada, born Jorge, walked off with the 63,500-pound
(95,000-euro, 117,000-dollar) prize after winning 74 percent of
viewers' votes in Friday's concluding show.
"I'm overjoyed I've been accepted as a woman for the first time.
It's the most amazing feeling – I could burst with happiness," the
27-year-old told British tabloid the Sunday Mirror.
"I am a very sexual person. Of course it has not been long since
I had the operation so I have not yet made love with a man. But I
am desperately looking forward to it. I just can't wait to find my
Alamada will never be able to bear children but that is not
stopping her wanting a marriage and a family.
"I would love a big white wedding. It's every little girl's
dream – and in my mind I have always been a girl.
"I would love to have a family. I don't know whether I would
adopt. But I do love children," she said.
An exuberant character with a full figure, Alamada – branded
"Portu-geezer" in tabloid newspapers – survived four 'eviction'
votes before ultimately winning the nation over.
"Big Brother" first appeared on British television in 2000, but
looked in danger of losing in the ratings before this year's series
which pulled as many as 7.7 million viewers a night.
Other contestants this season were as varied as a 44-year-old
Somali ex-asylum seeker and a lesbian anarchist named Kitten,
booted out on day eight for breaking the rules too often. – Sapa-AFP
