Since the show started, he had a difficult time adjusting to his new environment and new housemates and he never resolved his problems. So he made up his mind on Day 6 to take a voluntary exit the next day. News of this reached his fellow housemates, who were saddened by it because of his good impression to them. The day of his exit was supposed to be the day of the first nomination night, but his exit moved the schedule of the nomination process to the next day. Two days later, new housemate Joaqui took his place. It was widely speculated before he left that Aldred was the housemate rumored to be underaged, hence his voluntary exit. However, in his first interview a week after his exit, the main reason is homesickness and the pressure to fit in.
