Celebrity Big Brother’s Trisha Paytas got her break playing an ‘overweight Jessica Simpson’ in one of Eminem’s cheeky music videos, The Sun reports
The 29-year-old YouTuber, who entered the CBB house last night, slipped into very tiny denim shorts and red crop top to writhe around with the rapper in his 2009 music video for You Made Me.
The bubbly blonde’s video outfit channelled what Jessica wore in her movie, Dukes of Hazzard, while she poked fun at the pop star’s Stampede Beer advert by indulging in a spot of sexy car washing.
Eminem was dressed in an American football kit as a nod to Jessica’s then-boyfriend, athlete Tony Romo.
As well as dancing around in her skimpy outfit, Trisha had to chow down on cheeseburgers during the vid and cosy up to Eminem while pushed against a car.
Other celebrities mocked in the video include Kim Kardashian, when a brunette actress’ fake bum is seen growing progressively larger and ‘attacking’ Eminem.
The video’s been watched more than 170 million times so far.
In 2014, Trisha said: “I totally owe Eminem for giving me my start. This video opened up so many doors for me at 20.”
She explained in one of her YouTube videos that same year that she’d responded to a casting call looking for an “overweight Jessica Simpson” – but didn’t realise it was an Eminem video until she got the part.
“I was a lot larger than Jessica Simpson, obviously for comedic effect,” she said.
“I was a fan of Eminem in middle school and it was kind of awesome and surreal for me to get this part.
“My fandom for Eminem faded out during high school but when he came on set, that inner 13-year-old came out and I was so excited.”
Trisha also praised Eminem for boosting her body confidence by telling her “you look ten times better than the real Jessica”.
“That made me feel so good,” she added.
“I remember him taking me kind of aside, waiting for lights or something, there were a ton of people around, and he says, ‘thank you so much for doing this, you truly look amazing, your shape, your size, everything about you is perfect’.
“I thought that was really nice and it resonated with me. ”
Trisha entered the Celebrity Big Brother house on Tuesday night – admitting she’d once eaten 10,000 calories in just one day.
She posted the eating challenge to her YouTube channel, boasting nearly three million followers, back in December.
Explaining why she’d decided to do it, she told fans that she was about to embark on a diet so decided to eat all of her favourite foods one last time.
Starting at 9.45am, she tucked into a box of YumYum doughnuts – with 270 calories in each – and continued to eat throughout the day, until admitting that the challenge had “kicked [her] butt”.
