Spain’s Big Brother 4 winner Gustavo photographed nude by paparazzi.
The US versions of Big Brother have given us either grainy or nasty naked pictures. That’s not the case with an international version of the show. Via Fleshbot, the winner of Spain’s Big Brother 4, Gustavo, was captured by paparazzi on a nude beach. (These links are, obviously, not safe for work, and this next one is very likely not safe for your ego, especially if it is of average size.) The paparazzi may have used telephoto lenses for these high-resolution images, but they didn’t really need them for their subject matter. Elsewhere, Fleshbot points out that one site has published composites and animated images taken from the UK series.
