Big Brother Australia: Daniel 'Saxon' Small on why show 'died'

Former Big Brother star Daniel ‘Saxon’ Small was one of the show’s most memorable stars back in 2003. 

But now the 36-year-old has revealed why he would never do reality TV again after his rise to stardom on the show. 

Daniel spoke to Now to Love on Thursday, saying with the widespread use of social media it has changed the fame game for housemates.

‘I think reality TV these days is a million miles away from when I was on the show, mainly because of social media,’ Daniel told the website. 

‘I feel the world is a little more unforgiving and judgemental of those who take the plunge on the TV screen,’ he said.

‘You’ve got to be brave as hell or a little crazy, or both to jump in the ring these days.’

Daniel added he won’t be watching the revamped series on Channel Seven, due to his allegiance to former host Gretel Killeen.  

‘The show died in my opinion when she wasn’t in front of it,’ he said. 

Daniel has largely retreated from the spotlight since his sojourn into reality TV as a 19-year-old all those years ago. 

In March, he married new wife Mareete – with the couple settling on the Gold Coast.

In the past, he has been open about how reality TV affected him. 

‘I did what any single 19-year-old would do when he saw an overnight explosion in attention from the opposite sex,’ he told news.com.au.

Despite media speculation at the time, Saxon insisted he was never romantically involved with Big Brother host Gretel, though the pair travelled together to Africa to film a documentary and he spent time at her place in Sydney.  

Big Brother continues Sunday at 7pm on Channel Seven
