Warren Phillips is joining the boys to battle it out against the girls and reckons he'll fool them all with his charm. Here's all you need to know about him.
Meet the other contestants here;
Who is Warren Phillips?
Warren Phillips is a 29-year-old driller from Gloucestershire.
He says that the size of his body and his tattoos will really set him apart from the other guys on the show.
Warren takes real pride in his appearance and says, 'my friends would say I’m a perfectionist when it comes to things like my hair, trainers and dress sense.'
Because of that, he's worried the way he looks on the show won't reflect the way he looks in his Insta selfies!
Back when he was 20, he entered a local modelling contest and won ‘The Face of Gloucester’.
He's got some famous Instagram followers including Miss Egypt plus he claims 'Vicky Pattison followed me once but I didn’t follow her back because I only follow people I know'.
What has Warren Phillips said about The Survival Of The Fittest?
Self obsessed guys and diva behaviour from girls would really put Warren off and he's hoping to steer clear of any of that whilst in South Africa.
He wants everyone to be on the same wavelength and is hoping that all the boys can keep their eyes firmly on the cash prize.
He's paranoid that people will find out what his bad habits are, especially ones that he perhaps hasn't even recognised in himself yet.
This experience will be his most exotic to date, seeing as - despite a trip to New York - he's never ventured outside of Europe.
What is the appeal of Survival of the Fittest for you?
The activities and going head-to-head with the opposite sex. I’m looking forward to the mental and physical challenges.
Who do you think are the stronger sex and why?
The stronger sex physically are males but when it comes to mentally, I’d say the females would tip that one. Girls are more strong minded than men. I think they can handle more. They can be more switched on. Men can only do one thing at a time whereas girls can multi task.
And why do you think the Boys should win Survival of the Fittest?
Because I’m a boy and I’m going to be on the Boys team so it’ll be good if we can bond together, create a unit and go and win it.
What is your secret strength that stands you in good stead for this battle of the sexes?
My charm. I can fool the opposition, I can talk to the girls and make them believe that I like them and they might fall for me. Where really it could all be a front.
Do you have any weaknesses that you’ll want to conceal during the show?
I get easily distracted so if a mental challenge doesn’t go right the first or second time, I don’t think I can do it. But if a challenge is physical, I’ll be able to keep going.
Are you open to love or will you be steering clear of the enemy?
I am going in open-minded. I don’t want to go in with a tactic or a game, I want to take every day and every challenge as it comes.
What is your usual type?
I like nice eyes and teeth. I work out so a nice body is always good too.
How would you describe yourself and how would your mates describe you?
My friends would say I’m a perfectionist when it comes to things like my hair, trainers and dress sense. I don’t like to take myself too seriously and like to have a laugh about things. Hopefully people would say I have good humour.
What type of Girl and Boy would be your nightmare in The Lodge?
A guy that is all about him – me me me. A girl who is the same, if everything revolves around her and she is a diva, she’ll be my nightmare.
What are you hoping the others will be like?
I want everyone to be on the same wavelength. I want the boys to want to go out and do well in the challenges. I don’t like anyone too hyper or loud so would like everyone to be level headed and keep their eyes on the prize.
What is your biggest fear about living in The Lodge?
People seeing my bad habits if I have any that I haven’t recognised myself. And I won’t look like my Instagram pictures first thing in the morning!
What most excites you about Survival of the Fittest?
I can’t wait to start the challenges because I have no idea what they will consist of. I can’t wait to get in The Lodge and have that camaraderie with everyone.
You’ll be living in The Lodge in South Africa – where is the most exotic place you’ve ever been?
I’ve never really ventured out of Europe to be honest. I’ve been to Spain, Portugal. New York is the furthest I’ve been and I wouldn’t call that ‘exotic’!
What is your claim to fame?
Back when I was 20, I entered a local modelling contest called ‘The Face of Gloucester’ and I won that. Some famous people follow me on Instagram – Miss Egypt. And Vicky Pattison followed me once but I didn’t follow her back, I only follow people I know.
Dates or Mates?
