Tommy ‘Diglet’ Klein has announced the sale of his 6-bedroom Betoota Grove mansion this morning, setting a new record for Lakeside Circuit.
The hammer fell this morning at $7.5m, which was nearly a million dollars higher than the former Big Brother contestant’s reserve.
Diglet shot to local fame in 2003 when he was the first contestant to be evicted from the Big Brother house after performing a ‘forey bomb’ on the head of another unsuspecting contestant sitting on the couch.
A ‘forey bomb’ is the act of pinching the opening of the foreskin closed during urination, causing the foreskin to inflate with urine. The operator of the penis is then able to unpinch the foreskin wherever he wants to drop the urine. In Diglet’s case, it was on the head of fellow contestant, Brock Stickman.
While he was promptly arrested upon leaving the house and charged with a litany of obscenity offences, the charges were ultimately thrown out by a Gold Coast court.
After Big Brother, Klein returned to Betoota to work at Tony Monte Nissan, where he’s worked ever since.
Which has left locals wondering how in blue fuck he’s ended up selling a house for $7.5m.
The Advocate reached out to Mr Klein’s managed for comment.
More to come.
