The BB10 Finalists' Percentages, Weighted By BBO

Every year at the end of a series of Big Brother, Channel 4 insist on issuing percentages for the Finalists which simply don't add-up. This makes it difficult to judge how close the result was in reality. For example, here are the figures released for the Big Brother 10 public vote:

Rodrigo 11%  (5th Place)
Charlie 13.2%  (4th Place)
David 19% (3rd Place)
Siavash 26%  (Runner-up)
Sophie 74.4%  (Winner)

...which adds-up to 143.6%. See what we mean? The reason the figures don't add-up is because when 'Final Five' housemates leave the House, the vote counts are all taken at different times and the voting continues.

So, we've taken the trouble to 'weight' the figures for you, and the result comes out something like this:

Rodrigo 11%  (5th Place)
Charlie 13.2%  (4th Place)
David 14.4%  (3rd Place)
Siavash 15.7%  (Runner-up)
Sophie 45.7%  (Winner)

Our own Home page 'Winner' Poll, which ran from around midnight on the Tuesday of the final eviction (Lisa's) right up to the Winner being announced on Friday night, had the following result after nearly 5000 votes:

Charlie 7%
David 9%
Rodrigo 12%
Siavash 26%
Sophie 46%

So, our Poll had three of the contenders the wrong way round, but it's not surprising given that if you look at the weighted figures above, the 5th, 4th and 3rd-place housemates were quite close and they had a similar amount of support from the public.

Actually, Siavash wasn't that far ahead of Dave in the public vote, so when we suggested in this article that his support on forums might be a load of hot air, we weren't far wrong. Indeed, it looks like Sophie won it by a landslide, which isn't that unbelievable given that our Poll registered a similar percentage to the (weighted) figure above for her.

We hope that makes things a bit clearer for you.
