Corey Worthington is set to further his celebrity status by joining the Australian Big Brother series of 2008. Not a stranger of controversy, the teen first made world headlines when he threw an out of control party which ended in police chaos and international media coverage.

Entering the BB house as an intruder, Worthington wasted no time in playing pranks. The loud-mouthed teen hid from 'grandmother' housemate Terri after other housemates told her that Corey had jumped the fence.

Corey's presence on the show has been met with mixed reactions. On entering the house, Corey was faced with both cheers and boos. Teen mental health specialist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg has criticized Channel 10 for allowing the 17 year old to participate in an adult TV program. Dr Carr-Gregg even went as far as labeling the stunt as an act of child abuse, blaming Worthington's parents and Channel 10 producers.

It is reported that Corey participated in the show in an attempt to change the public's negative opinion of the Queensland teenager. Good luck kid.
