X Factor's Chloe-Jasmine Whichello will stop at nothing for her 15 minutes of fame - here's the proof
Haters gonna hate.
And unlike Katie or Kitty, Chloe-Jasmine doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer and isn’t about to fade into the celebrity ether anytime soon. How do we know this? Because she has been campaigning to be a celebrity for YEARS.
Back in 2006, 16-year-old Chloe-Jasmine auditioned for The X Factor in front of judges Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh.
‘I crave fame,’ squealed Chloe-Jasmine. ‘It’s something that everyone wants – everyone wants it ‘cos it’s easy. There are no obstacles. Like, if everyone in the world were to know who I was… it would be really fun!’
Sadly for Chloe-Jasmine, 2006 was to be Leona Lewis‘ year. Keep bleeding, keep, keep, bleeding love!
Undeterred, Chloe-Jasmine also appeared on Naomi Campbell‘s modelling competition The Face. After Naomi Campbell made Chloe-Jasmine toss her blonde wig to the floor, she landed a coveted place on Naomi‘s team.
When Chloe-Jasmine eventually faced elimination, she pleaded: ‘I’ve got a goal in life and that’s to be a model, a serious model.’ Judge Caroline Winberg was unmoved (or perhaps her face was simply frozen) and gave her the boot (or stiletto, rather).
But the harder you knock Chloe-Jasmine down, the more she lusts to be waved past the velvet rope and ushered into the VIP section.
Which leads us to this year’s X Factor. CJ’s made it through to the live shows and has done well – her stripped-back jazz version of Britney Spears‘ Toxic won praise from all four judges.
The public, momentarily distracted by the Blonde Electra‘s shrieks and the less-than-limp boyband Overload blah-blah-blah, seemed to agree.
‘I love your voice,’ said Simon Cowell. ‘I think you’re slightly polarising – some people will love you, some people I’m not so sure.’
Don’t worry Si, Chloe-Jasmine‘s probably the only X Factor contestant to have a back-up plan sorted even before they’re voted off.
Chloe-Jasmine also appears on Channel 5’s recent shockumentary, Big Spenders! Shopaholics Exposed, where Chloe-Jasmine reveals she’s forced to keep the bulk of her clothes at her parents house in Somerset because her wardrobe in her London flat’s already overflowing. Hmm.
And if you search for Chloe-Jasmine on Waterstone’s website, you’ll come across a coffee table book of her modelling shots – selling for £49.95! Really.
What’s next – The Apprentice? The Great British Bake-Off? We can just imagine the look on Paul Hollywood‘s face when Chloe-Jasmine ‘accidentally’ gets covered in whipped cream and begins making eyes at the camera.
Like it or not, Chloe-Jasmine is here to stay.
If we were Chloe-Jasmine, we’d listen to the sound advice Simon Cowell gave to her: ‘There is one thing worse than bad press, it’s no press.’
