Things got real when Big Brother Australia star Ben Zabel opened up to fellow castmate and winner Tim Dormer about his mental health issues. Ben doesn’t believe he can be saved. The Big Brother star has been open about his mental health issues after being rushed to the hospital last fall for an attempted drug overdose.
The unlikely duo are about to release a 10 part web series called The Graceland Happiness Project in a quest to try and find the key to happiness all while going to Graceland since Ben is a huge Elvis fan.
Watch Ben’s heartfelt confession here.
Ben says in the confession video, “I feel like a failure.” Tim breaks down in tears. “I think today made me feel like a failure and I don’t see a way in which that’s going to change, which makes me feel like I can’t be saved.”
Tim in tears to Ben, “I don’t think I’ve got the answer to make you happy.”
As a Big Brother Australia fan, Ben stole the hearts of the fans and became a fan favourite in the 2013 season on Big Brother Australia. Zabel is such a sweet and humble person and made for amazing TV. I do hope the reality star finds the help he needs to have a happy and fulfilling life. We here at Reality Box are rooting for you.
The Graceland Happiness Project is slated to be released on April 15th and while they do tackle some serious issues there are many upbeat and happy moments from their trip. If you know anything about Tim Dormer and Ben Zabel it should be for a good and funny time. You can find The Graceland Happiness Project information on Facebook.
