Amazing! Sam Pepper, who entered the House less than two
weeks ago as the twenty-first contestant, has become the bookies'
favourite to win the show.
Early last week you could have got odds of 22/1 on the young
graffiti artist (you stake £10 to make £220 profit),
but his odds started dropping as more and more people backed
him, hitting 12/1 by the end of the week, and tumbling more
recently to today's 6/4 (you stake £10 to make £15
This makes him the favourite to win Big Brother 11, which
is almost unbelievable given that the 21-year-old was touted
as being one of the most annoying housemates ever before he
entered the House as a latecomer when Laura quit.
Of course, this doesn't actually mean he's going to win,
but it shows that a lot of people think he's going
to win, and implies that he has a lot of support.
Many fans think it would be unfair if Sam, who came-in to
shake things up using his knowledge of the outside world,
was to win the series and scoop the £100k prize money,
suggesting that he has only been successful because of that
In other words, had he joined the group at the beginning
of the series, or even half-way through like Andrew, Jo or
Joe John did, he wouldn't have been such a hit, and would
probably have annoyed fans with his gawky manner, immature
ways and annoying voice by now.
Angry fans suggest that Sam's late entry gave him a huge
advantage, and feel it's wrong that someone who spends just
a few weeks in the game could win it, which goes against the
whole point of the show.
Admittedly, they have a point, because the show was originally
a social experiment to find-out how a disparate group of people
get on with each other when confined to a relatively small
space for a long period of time; up to 13 weeks in the case
of Big Brother UK.
Whatever, if you think that Sam could go all the way and
won't run out-of steam any time soon, and you'd like to back
him with a little bet, click
