Big Brother 10 News
Eleventh Round Nominees Announced
The Eleventh Round of nominations took place yesterday and
Big Brother had to choose the nominees for Siavash and Sophie
after they both refused to nominate (more details here).
As a result, with one housemate having received 5 nominations
and two jointly-receiving 3, the people facing eviction this
week are: Bea, David and Marcus.
Right, although it's tempting to do cartwheels across the
floor in celebration of a certain person being 'up' this week,
let's first take a look at David's chances of survival.
There's not much to say about Dave to be honest, because
he's very much an 'also ran' housemate. In the popularity
stakes he ranks around Lisa and Bea, not because he's really
hated, but because he's just not a strong enough character
to gain mass support. Again, it isn't that he's not
likeable, as such.
However, he is very dippy, oft-annoying and not to mention
the fact that he's up Bea and Lisa's butt, which is partly
why he's not liked and can't win. But he's very unlikely to
be evicted on Friday; not when he's up-against more controversial
About Marcus, we've been told by a few fans that we need
to lay off Marcus now, and indeed public opinion about him
seems to have changed a bit, even though for weeks-on-end
he was second only to Lisa in our 'Who Do You Want Out Next?'
Polls. So, when we were knocking him, it was justified because
he was unpopular.
Actually, even in our most recent Poll, which we've just
closed, he was second only to Bea. That said, it was very
close between Charlie, Lisa and Marcus, but all three had
around a tenth of the percentage that massive hate-figure
Bea had in the same Poll.
Marcus undoubtedly gained popularity for having challenged
Bea last week, and has now become something of a Rex Newmark/
Jason Cowan figure; not exactly someone that the fans love
to hate, but something along those lines. A contestant who
could go far because he causes friction and entertains, but
probably won't win.
That said, we didn't think that Rachel would win last year
until near the end of the series, and if Siavash and Sophie
lose support over the coming weeks, it may well happen. In
the meantime though, Marcus is very unlikely to go on Friday
And now on to third nominee Bea...
Well, Big Brother's intervention has finally given the fans
what they want, and that's the opportunity to give Bea a huge
kick out of the door. Some praise has to go to Siavash (and
Sophie) though, for being brave enough to flout the rules
and risk losing public favour, a consequence of which Bea
is up this week.
Bea painted herself as some kind-of passive 'hippy-chick'
when she first arrived in the Big Brother House, but the 24-year-old
latecomer has proven to be anything but, showing that she's
actually a bitchy, self-important, contrary, argumentative,
moany and manipulative cow (to use the fans' vernacular!)
There is no possible way that Bea can survive this week.
Even if Big Bro was to halve the number of votes
that she receives just to do her a favour, she'll still get
evicted! Yep, Bea's fate is already sealed and she will leave
on Friday night with over 80% in the three-way public vote.
Only her quitting can mess things up.
So, who goes? YOU decide... unless Bea jacks it in before
the eviction, in which case she decides. Hold your
breath, BB fans!
The 10th Eviction of Big Brother 10 will take place on Friday
the 21st of August 2009, and voting lines will open shortly.
The voting telephone numbers will be published in another
article from Week 11 of our Latest News section soon.
Don't forget to go and vote in our Home page Poll relating
to the 10th Eviction, which is now live and will run until
Friday evening. Remember, it's just for fun though and you
still need to register a phone vote-or-two if you desperately
want rid-of a particular nominee and don't want a shock result,
like last week.
