Keeping Jay Over Michelle II?
This article is a follow-up to our somewhat controversial
article published yesterday with a similar title, to which
we received a mixed response. To clarify, we've received e-mails
both in support of our points and, notably, against them.
Of course, we're not above criticism, although the content
of the response
we published last time our coverage got a bit controversial
(only twice during a series, that's not bad!), is still somewhat
In the original article from yesterday, we basically asked
why fans were apparently gunning for Michelle now, having
become slightly bemused by the sudden backlash.
However, despite the interpretation of some site visitors,
notably the pro-Jay ones, we did NOT tell anyone to vote Jason
out. We simply asked fans to consider whether they really
wanted to keep the former Public Enemy No.1 in the house over
The answer has now become apparent: a great number of fans
have switched sides and now want Michelle out as soon
You're a fickle bunch, you BB fans!
Although we stand by our article (after all, there can be
no wrong 'opinion', by virtue of definition), we concede that
we may have misjudged public opinion somewhat.
Before the chain gang task, Jay was moping around and not
interacting with the group - no-one can deny that. Indeed,
in the three days in-between Victor leaving and the latest
task beginning, Jason was around 15-20% ahead in our Poll
asking 'Who do you evicted on Friday?'
However, in a classic case of steering things with the editing
of the show, Channel 4 have managed to make Michelle look
really bad and Jay quite meek and pleasant. That said, to
use an argument we've used in respect of Jay and Vic before,
the producers couldn't edit Michelle in bad light unless she
had provided them with relevant footage.
Reference Michelle's canoodling with Stu, despite being shackled
to someone else, it is slightly odd how the public have started
to consider Jason's feelings... we knew something was up when
we began receiving lots of e-mails saying that fans felt sorry
After all, and we must re-iterate this point if only to reinforce
the ethos of the reference article, the majority of fans have
wanted Jason out of the house for many weeks now. And that
is a fact.
Still, we've seen more-than-ever-before this year how quickly
things can change, and we now accept that Michelle's behaviour
has irritated a lot of people. Particularly the female fans?
As one former Jay-hating fan described the situation yesterday,
"It is more to do with wanting Michelle out now, rather
than wanting to keep Jason in". Right, so now we know.
Don't get us wrong, there are still a lot of people who want
Jay out and evidently, he cannot win, but it looks rather
like overly-possessive Michelle will be going this Friday
instead of the big man.
Just don't blame us if he sits around on his butt, separated
from group, and does nothing all next week except whinge!
