Tenth Round Nominees Announced
Last week, Big Brother put all of the housemates up for eviction
as a punishment for Marcus and Siavash breaking the rules.
This week, rule-breaks have once again affected the outcome,
but not in the same way...
Fed-up with the housemates' recent bad behaviour, Big Brother
imposed a couple of punishments
on Sunday and Monday, which meant that Marcus was able to
ask his peers to nominate him, thereby making their decision
easy (only Siavash didn't vote for him). Also, they were already
against Freddie after the friction over the fags, which he
inexplicably got blamed-for despite the fact that it was Sophie
who brought the issue up, and Sophie who challenged Marcus.
Anyway, after all nine housemates nominated yesterday at
the Tenth Round, the result is that the following pair are
facing eviction this week: Freddie and Marcus.
So, to use a tabloidism, it's 'Brain vs Brawn' this week,
and we're slightly gutted that Sophie and Bea weren't just
penalised for discussing nominations in the traditional way
and put 'up' too. Fans will also be gutted (angry, even?)
that once again they've been denied the opportunity to get
shot of Lisa, who's second only to Bea in the most-hated housemate
stakes right now.
Indeed, it's getting a bit crazy when Lisa has been either
top or second in almost every one of our 'Who Do You Want
Out Next?' Polls throughout the series, but Big Brother has
arguably contrived to keep her in on occasion, when she should
have been up.
We digress, because it's all about Freddie and Marcus this
week, so which one should stay and which one should go?
These days, Marcus isn't quite as ridiculous, egotistical
and crude as he has been in the past, but that's part of the
problem; as a BB character, we're starting to think that we've
seen all he has to offer now.
After all, we've witnessed his would-be 'hardman' persona,
weird stalker-like behaviour, childish sulkiness and rebellious
and argumentative side, so is there any reason to keep him
in any longer, especially as all he does late at night is
mope around on his own? Okay, at least he stays-up late, but
it's hardly entertaining to watch.
Marcus has also been saying for a while that he wants to
go home, even telling Freddie and Siavash last night that
he would rather be sat at home watching the show than be on
With regards to Freddie, he definitely has his faults, but
he has the sort of flaws that some viewers might recognise
in themselves. He's quite real (compared to the deluded Marcus),
despite his privileged upbringing and airy-fairy ways. His
calm reaction to Bea's vitriolic attack the other night was
admirable, and he's very astute as-to what's going-on in the
game, who's manipulating who etc.
Okay, so Freddie thinks about gameplans quite a lot, but
then we would rather watch that, than someone who worries
about what their hair looks like all the time, or what magazine
deals they'll get out-of their appearance on the show.
Keeping Freddie in will undoubtedly prolong the friction
with Bea and give us something to watch, but more importantly,
being a very strong character and an intellectual to boot,
he is probably more suited than Marcus to backing-up his mate
Siavash against Bea and Lisa et al.
Fans of his or not, we feel that there's more to come from
Freddie, and for that reason we'd like him to stay this week,
although we accept that the public vote could be close.
So, who stays? YOU decide!
