Gorgeous Teen Wins £500 for Having Britain’s Most Disgusting Student House



MANILA, Philippines – It all started out as a joke from her dad that she should enter the contest for Britain's dirtiest student house when he saw a photo of her kitchen – but the joke turned to gold after the student won £500 ($660)!
Gorgeous Teen Wins £500 for Having Britain’s Most Disgusting Student House

Brittani Cooper, 19, is a college student at the University of the West of England. Ironically, the gorgeous student actually studies real estate, making the appearance of her apartment even more disgusting, especially considering she should have known better how to keep the place looking nice, beautiful, and clean!

Her dad had seen the grim, disgusting condition of her apartment in Filton, Bristol and joked that she should enter the contest because she had a big chance of winning.

“My dad saw that web-blinds.com had launched a campaign to find the UK's worst student digs on an online news site,” Brittani revealed.

“He sent me the link to the article as a joke because he knew that my housemates and I didn't exactly keep our flat the tidiest during the past year. I decided it was worth entering with some images of our very messy kitchen, and now I'm so happy I did.”

Amazingly, she won. Out of the nearly 1,000 entries the site received, hers was the dirtiest, most disgusting flat! Oooops. We hope this doesn’t affect her future career in the real estate industry!

“It was no easy task to pick just one winner from the students' submissions to our dirtiest digs competition,” admitted Kirsty O'Sullivan, spokesman for web-blinds.com. “In fact, it was tough even looking at some of the pictures.”

Now that Brittani has won the rather shameful award, she doesn’t feel too bad about it because it did come with a good prize. But her dad wants a 50-50 cut with the prize money because it was him who told her to join!

Brittani, however, said there was no way she’d give her dad part of the prize money because she wants to use it to finally get the apartment looking much better, something that one would have expected to see in a real estate student’s home!

Perhaps next year she’d win the best student house award? That would definitely be incredible!

Parents Sue 30-Year-Old Son for Still Living in Their Home



In the Philippines, thousands (possibly millions!) of grown-up children are still living in their parents’ homes. Many of them are already married and have kids of their own but still prefer to live in their parents’ homes, no matter how small it might be.
Parents Sue 30-Year-Old Son for Still Living in Their Home

In the US, however, children are expected to leave their parents’ homes when they turn 18, get a job, and support themselves before starting a family of their own.

But what happens if the kids don’t really want to leave? Can you legally force them out?

Parents Sue 30-Year-Old Son for Still Living in Their Home

Well, it turns out you actually can! The parents of a 30-year-old man in upstate New York have successfully won a case against their son – and the judge handed him an eviction notice.

Just like a lot of young people in the US, Michael Rotondo left the family home and became independent when he got a job. But that was many years ago.

When he lost his job 8 years ago, he went back to his parents’ home. They took him back, thinking he would soon find another job and leave but he must have realized it was easier for him to just live off his parents’ money.

Even though he supposedly owns a website business, Michael reportedly does not pay his share of the groceries or the bills, sparking a row with Mark and Christina Rotondo who just wanted their son to ‘grow up’ and become independent.

The couple claimed that their son does not even help with the chores, including doing the laundry.

Knowing he is still their son, even though he’s irresponsible, Mark and Christina tried to diplomatically make him leave. They talked with him and begged him to go but he refused.

After years of trying to make him go, the couple decided that it might be a good idea to send him formal ‘eviction’ letters to drive the point home but he just ignored those as well.

“Michael Joseph Rontodo, you are hereby evicted,” one letter demanded but it got ignored, too.

Then, the frustrated parents thought they could ‘bribe’ him to leave but though he accepted the $1,100 they gave him, he still continues living at their house. Angered, the two took him to court.


State Supreme Court justice Donald Greenwood ruled in favor of the parents, issuing Michael an eviction notice. Michael has since called the ruling ‘outrageous’ and plans to still go back to his parents’ home ‘to get some things’; though he’s unsure now where he would stay.
