The fourteen housemates have been
nominating all afternoon at the first round of the series,
and the result is that the following three people are (or
rather, should be) up for eviction this week:
David, Shabby and Sunshine.
The unpopular trio won't hear the news until tomorrow, but
Big Brother has decided to mess with things and implement
a twist this week, which seems a bit unnecessary at the start
of a series and will probably be seen by fans as a move to
manipulate the result/ save someone in-particular.
Indeed, perhaps the producers have realised that Dave is
one of, if not the least popular housemate with the
fans, but think it's too soon to lose such an interesting
Although he was intensely annoying on Launch night, with
a contrived laugh that reminded us of a character from Steve
Coogan's 'I'm Alan Partridge', David isn't your usual religious
What we mean by that, is that he seems to have different
take on religion compared to most God-botherers, and he's
possibly more broad-minded (or perhaps more tolerant) than
many devout Christians, his closeness to gay peer Mario being
an example of that.
Of course, that doesn't mean he's necessarily a great bloke
or a good contestant, and it seems that he's already getting
on the nerves of his peers. However, it might be worth keeping
Dave in for a little while longer, just in case we find-out
that he's harmless really and can have a good laugh with the
best of 'em.
That said, we wonder if he'll start ramping-up the religious
advice and preaching some time soon, which is a big no-no
as far as we're concerned. Frankly, we had all that with Celebrity
Big Brother 7's Stephen Baldwin and it became tedious in the
We could also put a case forward for keeping Sunshine, who
has already caused friction with her pedantic ways and insistence
on making a mountain out-of a molehill. Talking of which,
she nearly got former-mole Mario sent home, but in trying
to suss him out she ended-up alienating her peers and coming-off
Some of them can't stand to be anywhere near Sunshine, and
we just knew she was going to be a bit of a nightmare as soon
as we heard her ridiculous name, which hasn't been changed
by deed poll by the way (her name is Yvette).
We appreciate that the 24-year-old medical student has been
mugged at knifepoint before, but that doesn't mean she should
get the sympathy vote or special treatment as a Big Brother
11 housemate. Let's face it, she's a bit annoying, but that
could be a good thing for the show if she keeps rubbing people
up the wrong way.
About third nominee Shabby, we don't really have much of
an opinion of her at the moment. She seems a bit gobby, crass
and potentially nasty, but then again she didn't exactly bill
herself as an angelic conformist, did she? And undoubtedly,
such characters make an 11-week-long show more interesting
If truth be told, we would rather lose someone like Corin
at this stage simply because we can't remember her speaking,
let alone saying anything interesting. But hey, what do we
know? We thought BB9 Winner Rachel Rice had absolutely zero
chance of winning for at least half the series!
Anyway, back to the twist: basically, the three nominees
will take part in a 'save and replace' task on Tuesday, and
the winner will get the chance to choose one of their peers
to take their place and face possible eviction this week.
Check back soon to find-out which three housemates end-up
