I personally think people loved Scotty T because of the massive personality change from being on Geordie Shore. The UK public love to see the real side to people. Which is exactly why Vicky also won I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here this year too. I highly disagree that he was a boring housemate, somebody being loveable and friendly does not automatically make them boring and unworthy of winning. The same way, causing drama doesn't automatically make them a winner.
From what I’ve heard of him he was known as a charismatic party boy who fucks a lot of girls on Geordie Shore, which is exactly what I saw on CBB. He didn’t show a different side of him at all. He was completely one-dimensional as far as I’m concerned. On the other hand, we saw ALL sides of Tiffany. We saw her anger, warmth, funniness, frustration, and empathy. She was multi-dimensional on the show. We saw her at her worst and we saw her at her best and people STILL loved her which is EXACTLY why she should have won the show.
