Is Brian The Winner Of Big Brother 8?

We wrote this article about Liam on Day 31 (Week 4), around 10 days after he was awarded £100,000 by his peers. The article suggested that the 22-year-old possibly had the game all sewn-up, and was on his way to winning another £100k, that being the actual prize money.

However, we're now wondering if Brian has overtaken the tree surgeon, and is on his way to scooping the prize money with 6 weeks to go.

We say this based on Polls that we've run over the past few weeks, first asking who you'd want to win out-of Brian, Gerry, Liam and Ziggy. At the time, Liam was the top male, followed by Ziggy. However, Brian's popularity hadn't really got going at that stage.

We then ran a Poll asking which of the girls, from a list of eight, would fans want to win if the game suddenly ended; Amanda and Chanelle were joint-top in that Poll.

Finally, we put Amanda, Chanelle, Liam and Ziggy up-against each other in another hypothetical Poll, and Liam came-out 13% ahead of Amanda as the likely Winner from the possible 'Final Four'.

However, in the ensuing weeks, Brian has become much more popular due to his dippy but funny behaviour. So, we've just run a Poll pitting Brian against Liam, and the 19-year-old data entry clerk came-out top with 60% of the vote.

Some say that it would send-out a terrible message if Brian were to win: that you don't really need an education to get on in life. Others, however, think that Brian is playing a game and is really very clever; his occasional use of some big words apparently contradicting his usual dumb-act etc.

Still, there's a great number of fans who are happy to just enjoy Brian's harmless personality, defined by his sometimes awkward demeanour, silly actions, 'Jade style' comments, apparent naivety and occasional vulnerability.

Liam is a genuine and nice guy sure enough, but so is Brian, someone who can also entertain in his own 'daft-as-a-brush' way. Plus, not that he courts trouble, but Brian has stood-up to Charley in a slanging match, which can't be said of the majority of his peers.

So, seeing as Brian is the current bookies' favourite, you may wish to have a flutter on the big man before his odds plummet? Admittedly, there are more male contestants set to join the game, but they would have to go a long way to beat Brian, or Liam for that matter.

At the time of writing (20th July, Day 52), Brian's odds as the possible Outright Winner of BB8 are 8/15, meaning that a £25 Bet would net you a profit of £13, plus your stake back. Obviously, with such low odds it pays to put a larger stake down, and a £100 bet would see a potential profit of £53. £250 staked would see decent £133 profit, but then you could lose your entire stake.

However, even though the Polls say Brian is very popular, things can change and you may wish to back Liam instead. His odds are still great at 9/2 (a £25 stake wins you almost £113 profit), but if you're a new customer to online bookie Paddy Power, you can also get yourself a FREE Bet of up to £25. Just click here and sign-up.

New customers can get another FREE £25 Bet at online bookie BlueSquare, by clicking here and signing-up. To qualify for this one though, you must stake at least £25. For the Paddy Power one, you can stake any amount you want, but they'll match your stake like-for-like up to £25. So, if you stake £10 at Paddy Power for your first bet, you'll get a Free £10 Bet in return.

It's quick and easy to sign-up with either bookie mentioned above, and it also makes things more fun when you've got something riding on the result! To see who we're backing during a series, check-out our Betting Zone section.

Good Luck if you decide to have a little gamble during Big Brother 8. Just don't leave it too late, as the odds go right down when it becomes totally obvious who'll win.
