A REDBANK Plains vet has swapped his stethoscope for a stint on Big Brother.
Ray Baxter is the latest contestant to enter the house and revealed recently his secret as a juvenile offender.
The self confessed workaholic was soon awakened to the rules of the Big Brother house when he discovered there was no chocolate milk in the fridge.
Within minutes of entering the 25-year-old was sent to the naughty corner for calling Big Brother 'mate' and was ordered to write lines on a blackboard 50 times.
Baxter confirmed he was a juvenile offender during his teens in the reality television program's Secrets Exposed challenge.
"I got into a wrong group of kids at school, kids that were doing drugs, kids that were stealing," he told viewers.
"I started stealing to the point that I was stealing things I didn't want just to get a name for myself amongst my mates.
"It all sort of came to a halt when I had my room searched and they found all these things...it was pretty obvious I was delinquent at the time.
"I then had to go the police station. I begged and pleaded to not get a criminal record."
Since then Baxter claimed to have cleaned up his act, working hard to get to where he was today.
"I owe my life to this experience," he said.
"If I didn't get caught God knows where I would be right now. I've corrected my wrongs."
Baxter said his pleasures in life were chocolate milk, walking his dog Rufus and going to the gym.
