The Third Round of nominations took place today, and after
all twelve housemates had visited the Diary Room, the result
was that Dave, Shabby and Sunshine became nominees.
The same three were 'up' after the first round of nominations,
and this is the third week in a row that Dave and Shabby have
become nominees. However, for the third week in a row there
will be a 'Save & Replace' task to ultimately determine
who faces the public vote.
In the first week, for the 'Hickory Dickory Dock' challenge,
the three nominees had to complete an assault course. Dave
was the fastest across the course and won the chance to replace
himself as a nominee. The religious man chose Rachael, who
was duly evicted on the Friday night.
Last week Shabby won the 'Scooter Slide' challenge, being
the only one of the four nominees to complete it, which allowed
her to replace herself as a contender for eviction. She put
Mario in her place, but he was as safe as houses and her pal
Govan got evicted by a landslide at the 2nd Eviction.
It remains to be seen who will be victorious at the third
We still think these challenges – which are set to
continue throughout the series – are great, because
they make things less predictable (e.g. Racheal's eviction,
Shabby saving herself). That said, the producers have been
accused by fans of having a collection of tasks in their armoury,
and just choosing the one that best suits the person they
want to save.
However, if they were to start announcing the challenges
the weekend before the nominations actually took
place, such accusations would be irrelevant.
Anyway, we'll let you know who nominated who, and actually
confirm who's facing eviction this week, in due course. Please
make sure that you're on our Newsletter mailing list in-order
to find-out as soon as the details are announced by Big Brother,
and don't forget to pop back and vote in our 3rd Eviction
