Fred Sirieix, a star of First Dates, has addressed the issue with his hair.
As he got ready to enter the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here jungle, the Channel 4 maître made the decision to put an end to the rumor once and for all. Among the ten famous people who left Down Under to face the demanding ITV show challenges is Fred. Bushtucker trials, meals of rice and beans, and, if he’s lucky, the occasional treat from Kiosk Kev are all expected of him.
The presenter of the Million Pound Menu participated in a question-and-answer session before leaving for camp. Before appearing on the show, fans had the opportunity to get to know their fellow campers a little better. Quick-fire questions like, “What’s the funniest thing you’ve read about yourself that wasn’t true?” were posed to the celebrities.
Fred retorted that there were rumors that he had had hair transplants or wore a toupée. “I’ll tell you what it is,” he said. It’s because everyone assumes I have a toupée or visited Turkey for new hair. He chuckled as he concluded the discussion, “I just grew it!” The 51-year-old has already finished the first challenge of I’m a Celeb.
He was transported by helicopter to the task of scaling a pole while flying hundreds of feet above the ground. However, body language specialist Judi James has labeled the star as a “fear-faker” because she believes he is attempting to convert the public. Fred displayed his fear of heights in front of the camera as he climbed into the helicopter to complete the task.
Jud said he was unable to control his sub-conscious mannerisms and that it was all an act. Regarding the advantages of displaying fear, Judi said: “Celebrities frequently win votes during the first few days of the show by acting fearful.” Fear responses increase the amount of camera time and amuse the audience.
It can be a helpful tool to “gain sympathy” from the public, she continued. She specifically mentioned that Fred was acting scared and acting inauthentically, in contrast to co-star Danielle Harold, during an interview with Paddy Power Games. “Fred seemed to be the biggest fear-faker last night,” she remarked. His strong eye contact with the camera and his relaxed, asymmetrical grin made his “I’m scared of everything” look out of place.
“He said the line with a hand gesture of evaluation, as if determining the best lines to make him the show’s star. Real fear, she continued, “tends to prompt waning signals and an eye focus on the target of your fear,” such as Marvin clinging to the helicopter like a scrunched-up limpet while silently observing the open door or Danielle staring at the tall building while screaming.
Together with Danielle, Fred was able to finish the job. Sam Thompson, a reality TV star, and food critic Grace Dent each took turns and successfully finished the task.
