Fans have been anticipating some kind of twist this week,
with many speculating that there might be a double eviction
on Friday. That's not the case, but Big Brother Online can
now confirm that there is a twist on Friday night.
Basically, after the 8th Eviction has taken place, the remaining
nine housemates will be told about the upcoming Ultimate Big
Brother series, aka BB All-stars.
They will learn that it begins as soon as Big Brother 11
ends, and will be given 1 minute to make a joint decision
as-to who they would like to put forward to compete in that
series. As we understand it, whoever they choose will gain
some kind of immunity next week, meaning they'll definitely
have a place in the BB11 Final (but not a guaranteed place
on BB All-stars).
The thing is, the group might pick Steve, for obvious 'PC'
reasons and to make themselves look good. If they do, a large
number of fans will be mightily peeved, because frankly Steve
hasn't done much and has very little chance of winning according
to opinion Polls. Indeed, we reckon that he has no more than
5% of viewer support at this late stage in the game, and that's
Therefore, the ex-army man could take a place in the Final
away from the most likely contenders for the prize, who at
the time of writing are Corin, John James, Josie and Sam.
It's not clear whether there'll be multiple evictions next
week or not, but our mole has hinted that there could be a
big cull next Friday, the 20th of August 2010, perhaps leaving
just four people in the game in the final week (well, for
the last 4 days).
On the face of it, after 10 weeks of Save & Replace,
which has stopped fans getting rid of the person they wanted
out on a number of occasions (including Steve), the above
looks like a rubbish twist.
However, details are slightly sketchy at the time of writing,
and Big Brother reserves the right to change things so it
might pan out okay, especially if one of the big four contestants
mentioned above is put forward by the group. Or, if the Top
Bods have the sense to make it five people in the
Final not four, which will allow one of the no-hopers to be
chosen tomorrow night without bothering fans.
If we get any more info, we'll let you know.
