Is Anthony Too Boring To Win?
The Anthony and Craig pseudo-Love Story has certainly captured
the fans' attention since Maxwell left, but what we're wondering
now is: What will Anthony have to offer when Craig is out
of the picture?
For the 70's dancer doesn't really get involved in any arguments,
sits on the fence in bitching sessions, we can't recall any
meaningful conversations he's participated in, he's not a
great comedian, he's led the group in nothing and can't find
the bottle to once-and-for-all tell Craig that 'enough is
Shall we go on?
It's not that we're gunning for the bloke - far from it -
as he seems like a great guy and hasn't come across as the
arrogant prat he did on Day 1 with his ridiculously showy
entrance. Well, not too much anyway.
However, when you think about what he's done during the series,
most of the stand-out moments involve other people like Maxwell

Fair enough, the craic was good while it lasted with all the

reckons that Anthony is a little bit dull.
Talking to him about last night's drunken shenanigans, Eugene
said, "I think you come across as a nice person... if
a bit dull perhaps?" Go Eugene!
Outraged by the slur, Anthony came back with, "I'm not
dull, you cheeky git!" then got into a huge rage, smashed
a chair over Eugene's head, threw Craig into the pool, had
a barney with every other housemate and did a moonie to Big
Bro before dismantling the Diary Room camera.
Actually, he didn't, we just made that up for effect! He slinked
off to do something, erm, more interesting, but you get the
So, would Anthony make a worthy winner or is he ultimately
too boring? With just a couple of weeks to go now, only time
