Pete Discusses His Vision About Winning
Pete was chatting to Dickie this evening and re-visited a
subject that he'd briefly mentioned to the gay waiter earlier
in the series, his BB vision.
Discussing a vision he had where a late friend apparently
told him to come on Big Brother and he would win, Pete was
worried that it may not come true.
"Basically, I had a thing when my friend came down from
heaven and he told me that I'd win. I'm scared that if I don't
win, then my belief in heaven will be...", said the Tourette
Syndrome sufferer, tailing off.
Pete went-on to say that he is looking forward to being back
with his friend again and was worried that if the dream doesn't
come true, he must be going mad. Also, he would stop believing
in heaven, a huge deal for him.
Richard allayed his fears, saying that if he doesn't win
it won't necessarily affect whether he gets to heaven himself,
before mentioning the prize money.
However, the 24-year-old claimed that wasn't interested in
the money and re-iterated that he came on Big Brother because
he was told-to by the spirit of his dead pal.
To be honest, cynical fans will see this as a blatant attempt
to gain sympathy/ votes right at the end of the series; but
if he wanted to do that, surely he would have involved the
whole group rather than just had a quiet chat with someone
Arguably, he could also have turned-on the tears for maximum
Others will say that Pete, who comes across as a sensitive
guy, is merely in touch with his spiritual side and is just
following his own destiny, genuinely worried that not winning
the show will shatter his hopes and beliefs.
Either way, he does seem to be reading into some heavy stuff
and admittedly, it was a rather inappropriate time to bring
Then again, surely a seasoned game-player – something
that Pete has been accused of being – would be aware
that fans will realise they're being manipulated and so it
would have a negative effect?
After all, BB1 Winner Craig Phillips' gesture to give his
prize money away might have worked six years ago, but BB fans
have become more cynical since then, and as big BB fan, Pete
would probably know that.
We admit that we wavered for a split-second after
hearing his spiel, but given that he's mentioned it before
and judging by the pained look on his face as he discussed
it with Rich, we're giving Pete the benefit of the doubt.
It's probably only the aggressive pro-Aisleyne support from
fans over the past few days that put any doubt there in the
first place frankly. Before now, we've had no reason to believe
that Pete is playing a game.
If you really analyse it, it does mean that the musician
is very keen to win, but frankly, who goes on Big Brother
and doesn't want to win it? Exactly, no-one.
It's not exactly Butlins, after all!
