3rd Nominations (Day 25) <<
By day 25, Penny and Stuart had been evicted, with Helen and Paul
surviving the first two public votes. Before these third nominations,
Brian, Dean and Josh were the only housemates not to have been nominated;
this was the first time Josh was eligible to nominate or be nominated.
Here's what happened:
Amma's first nomination was Narinder. Her reasons were because she
can sometimes be selfish and, "Can't take what she dishes out."
With her second nomination, Amma nominated Paul for the third time
running. This was because he was sometimes a bit too excitable,
although the public having conversely suggested that he's a bit
Amma's nominations: Narinder and Paul
This week Brian's first nomination was Paul because his attitude
had changed since being nominated last week and, "It might
cause problems within the group." Brian decided to lay off
Helen this week and chose Amma as his second nominee. He stated
that she likes to debate a lot and sometimes it can lead to argument.
Of course, he overlooked the fact that most of the time his confidante
Naz is also involved!
Brian's nominations: Paul and Amma
Bubble went for Narinder as his first choice because she'd 'had
a pop at him' and called him a shit-stirrer, something he refuted.
He added, "I personally believe it's hard to have an argument
(in the confines of the house). It affects everyone else that's
in here, so she made me bite my tongue which I don't like doing."
Bubble's second nomination was Josh. About the 'new boy,' he said,
"I haven't bonded with him," going-on to state how he
had been brought-up to say please and thank you; Josh had borrowed
one of Bubble's hats without asking and it appears to have been
the cardinal sin!

Dean's nominations were once again very brief; he used his personal
'popularity line-up' to describe how he'd decided on his nominations.
This may be a legitimate way of justifying his choices, but seems
a bit of a cop-out and makes for reasonably dull viewing. He nominated
Paul first and then Narinder, making it the third week in a row
that he's nominated her. When pushed to elaborate, he simply added
that Narinder is the housemate he gets on least well with. He nominated
the same housemates last week.
Dean's nominations: Paul and Narinder
"Narinder's a lovely person and personally I get on with her
very well, but on a group level, I feel that sometimes she's too
sensitive for in here," was how Elizabeth described her first
nominee. She added that Narinder causes 'shouting' to occur between
the housemates. Her second choice was, as last week, Paul. She apologised
to Paul for nominating him and said that although she'd had some
nice conversations with him, he was the person she lest 'connects
with' in the house. Elizabeth's nominations have turned out to be
the people facing eviction every week so far, prompting some to
call her 'Mystic Liz!'
Elizabeth's nominations: Narinder and Paul
Helen's first choice was Brian as she'd seen a different, more selfish
side to him that she didn't like. She added, "Perhaps I've
seen him being a little bit 'all about him' all the time."
This was Brian's first ever nomination. Her second nomination, unsurprisingly,
was Narinder. Recently she'd been picking on Helen, who described
her as, "The person I get on with the least." Quite an

This was Josh's first week of being included in the nomination process
and he was straight in there! His first nomination was Narinder,
as he believed that she was cause of most of the arguments in the
house. His second choice was Bubble. He apologised to the cockney
but said that he was sleeping a lot and not contributing to the
group as he might in normal circumstances.
Josh's nominations: Narinder and Bubble
Walking into the diary room with a stern face, Narinder obviously
had some attitude to convey and nominated Amma first. About the
lap-dancer, she said, "She has to disagree with everything
and Amma has had a different issue every week she's been in here.
Coupled with the fact she has a food problem, eats raw mince and
sits in a orange blanket constantly." Oooh, bitchy! This week
narinder gave Helen a break and instead nominated Bubble, as she
did in the first round of nominations. She said that there was a
thin line between when he's just messing about and when he's being
serious, adding that, "It's quite scary." This was the
exact same reason Helen gave for nominating the cockney last week.
Narinder's nominations: Amma and Bubble
Even though Amma had nominated Paul three times and he'd nominated
her twice previously, he didn't go for the lap dancer this time
around. Instead, his first nomination was Brian. Paul was concerned
over the way the Irishman had dealt with his issues over Josh, saying
that he'd seen a spoilt side to him. He did state however, that
Brian was 'a lovely guy.' His second nomination was Bubble for the
second week. This was because he felt Bubble was in it for different
reasons (to win?) and had said that he would leave straight away
if he knew he wasn't going to win. As in last week's nominations,
Paul also added, "He could irritate me at later stages."
Paul's nominations: Brian and Bubble
So, the tally after the third round was:
Narinder: 6, Paul: 4, Bubble: 3, Amma: 2, Brian: 2, Josh: 1, Dean,
Elizabeth and Helen: 0
After the third nominations, Dean remains the only housemate to
be free of any nominations. Narinder faces the public vote for the
first time; it's Paul's second time this week. People have suggested
that Paul is rather boring but we think he's just an ordinary, decent
bloke. That said, he doesn't seem to contribute to the house much
in the way of cooking etc. Narinder seems adept at causing arguments
so if we lived in the house, we'd probably want to see the back
of her by this stage! However, she will almost certainly provide
us with more entertaining viewing than Paul so
