Simon Deering, better known as Hotdogs, was a contestant and 11th evictee of Big Brother Australia 2005.[1] He has continued a career in Australian television.

Deering was evicted from Big Brother in the show's ninth week by a 53% margin. Following this he was appointed host of The Up-Late Game Show, an interactive late-night game show on Network Ten, which screens in the early hours of each weekday in those months of the year when Big Brother is not running.

Deering appeared as guest on the 13 June 2006 edition of Big Brother UpLate and announced to host Mike Goldman that he had recently moved in with fellow Big Brother 2005 housemate Vesna Tofevski.

Deering guest-starred as himself in the pilot episode of the Australian comedy The Wedge.

Deering is set to play the role of Eric Bana in the new play by Warthog theatre play 'Bana' about the life of Eric Bana.

Indecent act in public[edit]

On 25 July 2005 Deering was at a Cairns, Queensland nightclub doing a promotional spot for Big Brother. Deering and an unnamed 22-year-old woman were arrested outside the club and charged with creating a public nuisance by committing an indecent act in public. Initial reports accepted Deering's claim that he had merely left the club to urinate.[2] He was released on A$100 bail, and in September 2005 pleaded guilty to three charges and was fined A$1,000.[3]
