The 1st Nominations In Detail
On Day 11, the first Nominations proper took place (discounting
the Day 1 nominations ref: losing Kitten's suitcase) and were
announced the following day. Kitten had already left the house
following her forced eviction on Day 8, leaving eleven contestants
behind. Bookies were already predicting before the nominees
were even announced that Ahmed and Michelle would be up for
eviction, and those two were joined by Emma. Here's who nominated
who and why:
Ahmed's first nominee was Marco because, "He thinks that
he has more rights than me... that he is superior to me".
Ahmed said that he had a problem with Marco's views on his
legitimate British citizenship and his rights. His second
choice was Emma for a similar reason: "Because if she
thinks that she is superior to me or has more rights than
me, there can be no friendship or trust".
Ahmed was Dan's first choice, mainly because he'd said that
he wanted to go. However, the big man also stated that, "He's
not taking part, he's a loner and it is difficult to include
him". Second choice was Michelle as Dan felt she had
a hidden agenda. Clarifying that he didn't know what her game
was, he stated, "She could have more faces than Big Ben?"
Emma's first choice was predictably Victor, mainly because
of the way he talked to her during the 'toilet bust-up'. She
didn't like his attitude and had found his shouting inappropriate.
For her second nomination, Emma went for Daniel because, "We
were talking in the front room and he said 'she's not as stupid
as she makes out to be'". She therefore took it that
Dan was saying she wasn't being herself.
Jay went for Marco as his first nominee. "He makes the
most annoying seal sounds I've ever heard," was Jay's
reasoning, further stating he was 'loud, noisy and irritating'.
His second nomination was for Emma, because, "She has
a complete lack of respect for the housemates when she goes
to toilet". Jay was obviously referring to the recent
Victor bust-up, but Emma had also walked-in on several other
For his first nomination Marco went for Jay, because, "I
sometimes feel that when we're trying to have fun, he kind-of
looks down on me". Referring to his own little bunch
of pals, aka the harim, Marco said that Jay was, "Not
finding us amusing", and stated that the muscleman intimidated
him. About his second nominee Ahmed, Marco said, "I just
feel that perhaps he could become a little more involved with
group activities". "There are other people who would
appreciate their time in the house more than him," clarified
Michelle's first choice was Ahmed, saying, "I just feel
that he doesn't necessarily fit in". Although she told
Big Brother that she too had experienced loneliness in the
past, Michelle went on to say that she had nothing in common
with Ahmed and didn't know what to say to him. She also stated
that he needs to accept other people's views. Her second nominee
was Jay because, "I can ask him a question and he almost
instantly takes offence". Michelle felt as though she
had to carefully think about what she said to him.
Ahmed was Nadia's first nominee. "I can't really connect
(with) him and find him a little bit strong" i.e. opinionated,
said Nadia, stating that Ahmed was isolated from the group.
Her next choice was Dan, on the simple basis that, "I
think he's holding back on what he really is... he's very
self-aware". She expanded on this by saying, "I
have doubts about his intentions in the House".
Shell went for Ahmed as her first nominee because, "He
voices problems a lot of the time without really solving them
himself". Insinuating that he wasn't very mature, she
also described Ahmed as being aggressive. Shell's second choice
was Michelle, because she seemed to be the main person causing
segregation within the group. Also, Shell felt that Michelle
didn't like Vanessa and suggested to Big Bro that she could
get to know Nadia and Emma better with Michelle gone.
For his first nominee, Stu picked Ahmed but gave the rather
vague reason, "He doesn't particularly impact me in any
describably (sic) set way... there's no deep emotion involved
for me". Akin with Marco, Stu also felt that Ahmed was
not having as good a time as everyone else and not making
the most of the Big Brother opportunity. Vanessa was his second
choice, mainly because she had frowned upon the food fight.
He stated, "It just made me feel right, well, we're on
opposite sides of the fence here".
Vanessa chose Ahmed as her first nominee, mainly because he
has his ideas on how things should be done and she has her
own ideas. Stating that he irritates her a bit, Vanessa also
noted the age gap between them. Her second nominee was Michelle
because, "I don't like her rolling eyes... and I don't
think she likes me". Vanessa told BB that she'd tried
to get to know Michelle but did not find her open about herself.
"I don't trust her", said the penultimate nominator.
As the last person to visit the diary room, Vic was not in
the mood to beat around the bush. He nominated Emma first
because he was still annoyed at the toilet thing. "She
doesn't think before she speaks", said the Londoner,
describing his first nominee as 'the stupidest person on the
face of this earth'. His second nominee was Nadia, aka 'Mrs
Jimmy Hill jaw', because, "She's expendable, you know?"
He talked about the language barrier and then stated, rather
strangely given his formerly serious stance, that there was
no room in the house for two snappy dressers, him being
one of them!
So, the tally after the first round was:
Ahmed: 7, Emma and Michelle: 3, Daniel, Jason, and Marco:
2, Nadia, Vanessa and Victor: 1, Shell and Stu: 0.
