It's Business As Usual Tonight

Unless you'ree signed-up to our Newsletter, or have been reading our Discussion Forum this afternoon, you're probably wondering what this article is all about. Well, for those people who do know, let us first confirm that everything is back to normal tonight and set to go ahead as planned. Phew!

Despite all the recent hype, we received news this afternoon from a reliable inside source that Endemol/ Channel 4 were thinking about making the following changes to the Fake Eviction:

i. The fake evictee would have some kind of additional powers or special dispensation when they return, such as immunity from being nominated perhaps?
ii. The crowd would not be allowed to chant or even boo.
iii. The evictee's interview with Davina would NOT be seen by the rest of the housemates.

To be honest, we were staggered when we heard this, as it would have made the whole thing entirely pointless and totally farcical.

After all, the excitement in watching the first ever Fake Eviction is in seeing the evictee squirm or kick-off when they return to the House, their peers having heard precisely what they think of them.

Well, we're happy to tell you that tonight's fake eviction will go ahead as planned, exactly as we've been detailing and hyping all this week. This is despite Channel 4's inevitable fears over a repeat of the infamous 'Fight Night' during Big Brother 5, which saw the show taken off-air for a while.

To address the above points, as far as we know the fake evictee will not be given any special treatment whoever it is, and will be eligible to be nominated on Monday at the Seventh Round.

Regards the eviction crowd, it is true that when the evictee leaves the House they will not chant or boo. In fact, they will help Big Brother continue the fake theme by donning bowler hats and remaining silent.

Erm, don't ask us... it's something to do with a famous painting, but it all sounds pretty weird and wonderful, and their reaction will certainly baffle the hell out of the evictee!

Lastly, the fake evictee's interview with Davina WILL now be seen by the other ten contestants, just before the Host reveals to the evictee that the procedure was fake and tells them they can go back in.

Remember, that person – either Charley or Nicky – will not be aware that their peers have seen the interview, so they're unlikely to refuse to go back in. They will not, as far as we know, be given any incentives to return.

Once the ruse has been announced, Davina will then lead the evictee back out to the waiting crowd, who are then free to boo or jeer exactly as they want. And we're suspecting that they'll 'want' alright!

So, it's panic over, the only dubious bit of the evening's proceedings is that apparently Channel 4 won't be revealing the percentage by which the fake-evictee is temporarily kicked-out.

This will doubtless spark rumours of another fix, but please refer to our Home page Poll for an idea of the likely percentages. Our Polls have been within 2% accurate for the past two evictions, and our Poll relating to the Fake Eviction currently has Charley with 54% of the vote.

Mind you, if it stretched to 5% inaccuracy, Nicky could go. That said, in the real public vote, people can register more than one vote and Charley is likely to inspire many more people to pick-up the phone than Nicky is. So, Charley may well go with a much bigger percentage tonight.

Don't forget to tune-in to Channel 4 tonight, Friday the 13th of July at 8.30pm, to see what happens. Here at BBO, we'll doubtless be glued to the live coverage on e4 all night!
