5th Official Evictee: Ahmed
Having lasted a reasonable seven weeks in the game, Ahmed
has become the 5th Official Evictee of the series; the sixth
person to leave the house.
As detailed in previous stories, his eviction became inevitable
towards the end and in fact our fun Poll, which asked 'Who
do you want evicted this Friday?', almost exactly matched
the official public vote.
In something of a landslide result, with almost 1.7 Million
votes registered in the public vote, Ahmed gained 56% against
Victor's 29%, Nadia's 5%, Stuart's 5%, Shell's 4% and Daniel's
In our Poll, which ran from Tuesday pm right through to the
eviction on Friday night, the results were: Ahmed 55%, Victor
23%, Nadia 8%, Stuart 6%, Shell 6% and Dan 2%.
So, the exact same order and more-or-less the same figures,
making our Poll effectively spot on!
During his time in the house, Ahmed, who was 14 years older
than the next youngest housemate, was initially something
of a loner and failed to join-in with group activities.
However, Jay soon pulled the Somalian aside and told him on
Day 5 to liven-up, get himself noticed and cause some conflict,
something Ahmed duly did by instigating an argument with Marco.
Remember his subsequent diary room rant? ..."I HATE him!"
Then followed a slanging match with Emma and Kitten over British
asylum laws, but it was Day 13 that marked the start of what
Vic and Jay amusingly dubbed 'Ahmania' i.e. Ahmed's irrational
The unstable property man got fed up with Big Bro playing
a wake-up alarm into the house and threw a right wobbler,
smashing plates in the garden in a kind-of protest.
Egged-on by the Jungle Cats the following week, he upset Shell
with his semi-letchy behaviour, but then apologised after
having not realised that he was causing offence.
It was not until Becki arrived that Ahmed truly got some female
attention, doing 'the bump' with the newbie housemate and
eventually getting to smack her bum with a slipper during
the s*xy nighttime shenanigans of Day 41.
He certainly livened-up after Becki arrived and began staying-up
later in the evenings, enjoying the Moroccan girl's fun-loving
nature and sense of humour.
However, facing eviction in Week 6 up-against his new pal,
Ahmed once again went nuts over BB's wake-up alarm and dramatically
chopped the head off Maureen, the group's plaster cast model!
The 'beginning of the end' came at the beginning of Week 7
though, when the mad man from Liverpool refused to join-in
with the Boot Camp task and compromised its success.
He had already refused to take the role of a blindfolded cow
in the previous 'Farmer' task, and his peers had had enough.
Even though they didn't get the opportunity to nominate him,
due to the Sergeants passing the Boot Camp task, he almost
certainly would have been up for eviction anyway due to his
When told by Davina that he would be leaving, the Somalian
stood up, punched the air and shouted, "Yes!", but
looked decidedly uneasy at the considerable booing that could
be heard from the crowd.
There were hugs all-round, with Stu simply saying, "It's
been emotional, man", and Ahmed made his peace with Michelle
by hugging and saying, "Come on, let's forget it".
When it came time to go, the hugs were repeated as the group
sang the A.H.M.E.D. song devised by Jason on Day 18. Wearing
a 'Miami Vice' style jacket, Ahmed was cool at the prospect
of leaving, saying, "It's okay, it's only a programme".
Just before the doors opened, the crowd chanted, "Ah-med,
Ah-med," but as soon as he exited the house, their chants
turned to boos. However, Ahmed just lapped it up and jeered
the crowd with a smile on his face, before laughing at their
Davina soon came and rescued him, taking the Somalian evictee
past the Press and up onto the stage, where the pair amusingly
recreated the Becki/Ahmed 'bump' moment. Having threatened
to quit the show several times, Ahmed had finally got his
night with Davina.
You have to admit that whether you liked him or loathed him,
Ahmed was definitely one of the 'characters' of Big Brother
5 and has provided some classic 'off the wall' moments - a
true rollercoaster ride, to quote the man himself.
Well done for lasting seven weeks Ahmed and thanks for entertaining
us along the way... 'ya nutter!
