Excess Baggage – Darren Lyons Says He Does Not Like Ajay Rochester

The publicity team has it easy when you have Darren Lyons on a TV show on your network.

The Excess Baggage contestant continues to generate column inches for the much anticipated celebrity weight loss reality TV show.

This time has fired the first salvo at another contestant Ajay Rochester.

In the Ros Reines column in the Sunday Telegraph he states:

“K-Fed is a pussycat and I’m the angry lion of Excess Baggage,” boasts Lyons.

“I’m just me and I don’t make any apologies for that, and people will either take to me or they won’t. I’ve never much cared what people think about me, anyway.

“I am here to be judged.”

Not that Lyons is at all averse to making a few judgments of his own, particularly when it involves Rochester.

 “She’s one person I can’t stand on the show,” he says of his fellow celebrity contestant.Lyons, in a case of the pot calling the kettle black, accuses Rochester of setting up her own paparazzi shots and says the Australian actress and author is just a publicity desperado.
Does this mean the viewer will see antagonism between the pair on the show? Darren Lyon’s is definitely going to be one of the villains of the series.
It is expected Excess Baggage will air on Channel Nine either the end of January or early February.

“A publicity desperado” says dodgy-sideburned pink-haired turtle-shell guts.

Sonia – Oh it is definitely pot calling kettle back.

Darren sounds like good value. I don’t want to watch another reality show full of good natured blokes

For anyone who wants to see Darryn Lyons at his best – just watch some clips of him on last year’s Celebrity Big Brother UK on youtube. He is incredibly hilarious and tells it as it is. Plus he is actually the most ‘normal’ celebrity and is not deluded at all. His criticisms of Jedward and Tara Reid were usually always spot on.

Ajays already responded to the telegraph artical on her blog –

Thanks Captain Falcon.

Sedi – I think Darren will get a lot of camera time.

Cripes! Just back from having a squizz at Ajay’s website.
Brain. Stuck. In. Loop.
Hey Ajay!
Please quit the psycho-babble, babe, else you’ll stop giving me the horn.

There’s a really funny promo of Darren on their fb page.

Why oh why do I find K-Fed hot ? He’s fat, he used to be married to Britney Spears, he’s a bit of a loser. Does anyone else share this problem ? I feel so disturbed …

10 Reality Raver { 01.12.12 at 1:53 pm }

Janey T – Well if he fat and a bit of a loser he sounds like 80% of my exes so I am sure I will fall madly in love with him.

11 Bert { 01.14.12 at 9:16 pm }

Does anyone find his 6 pack a bit weird. Implants me thinks

12 james { 01.16.12 at 6:31 pm }

I agree JaneyT. I saw heaps of the contestants at crown plaza in surfers a few days ago, they all seemed to have lost a bit of weight :)

The guy’s a vain bully and hypocrite. I wouldn’t watch his ugly mug or very, very fake looking chest if you paid me.
