Who's Going Up, Who's Going Down?
Following the Fight Night II shenanigans for which Dennis
got ejected, we take a look at who's more popular and who's
gone sliding down our tabloid-style 'BB-ometer' pole over
the past few days.
Firstly, let's consider those who've gone down in
the public's estimations.
Clearly, Jennifer's popularly has suffered a massive blow
due to her ridiculous 8-year-old style behaviour over the
alleged damage to her picture of Stuart. Indeed, at the time
of writing (Monday 30th of June, Day 26), she holds a whopping
55% in our 'Who Do You Want Out Next?' Poll.
That's a huge margin given that she's up-against twelve other
people, and it shows how badly things have gone when you consider
that she received just 2% in the same Poll last week. At that
time, Sylvia and Mario were the ones BB fans wanted out.
Another thing that won't have helped her case was Jennie
snapping (in front of him), "Let's hope Mohamed goes
(at the 2nd Eviction)," when it was announced that Dennis
had been sent home.
Second most hated housemate at the moment is Dale on 10%,
again someone who polled a negligible 1% last week. This is
undoubtedly due to his aggressive behaviour during Fight Night
II and also the following day, when he told Mohamed, "Don't
start the eyeballing already mate," as the two groups
met-up in the living area.
The musclebound trainee teacher also said to Mo after it
was announced that Dennis had been ejected, "If I wanted
to touch you, you'd know about it," which was arguably
Stuart is also guilty of getting involved when he didn't
need to, and on the night in question Mohamed was in tears,
fearful that big Stu was gonna' hit him. The latecomer is
about as popular as Rex at the moment, someone that fans haven't
With regard to who's become more popular, we have
to say that Mario has to an extent. The big fella isn't exactly
popular per-se, but his lack of management-speak lately and
that the fact that he condemned the Fight Night violence has
gone in his favour.
"If Dennis is not (ejected), I'm going," he said
on Thursday night after the big bust-up, telling his peers
the next day that he wouldn't be party to any violence and
didn't want to live with aggressive people. The oldest housemate
currently holds 6% in the Poll, which is not far off Mikey,
Mohamed, Rebecca, Rex and Stuart, and has come down from 27%
However, Darnell has come out-of the bust-up best, having
stormed into the bedroom after the spitting incident to challenge
his peers when Mohamed burst into tears.
"I wanna' know right now, who supports somebody spitting
in somebody's face?" said the enraged songwriter on the
night, adding, "You don't spit in somebody's face".
Darnell reared-up against both Stuart and Dale, and although
some fans may deem his behaviour equally aggressive, many
have seen it as admirable.
Darnell told Big Brother the following day that he regretted
being aggressive and wished he hadn't got involved in the
first place. However, with two musclebound guys and Rebecca
having a go at Mo, and with beefy pacifist Mario not getting
involved, Darnell is just the kind of guy you need to even
things up and make it fair (not that we're condoning violence).
Consequently, the 26-year-old has become the second favourite
to Win, overtaking Luke and becoming a contender against Kat.
As a result, we decided to back him to Win on Saturday because
we feel that Darnell – on just 1% in the aforementioned
Poll – could get the acceptance he seems to be seeking
and turn-out to be the champion of Big Brother 9.
We placed a £25 bet on Darnell before his odds plummet
(using our 2nd Free Bet - see Betting
Zone for details), and we stand to win a profit of £125
if the one-time bad boy goes all the way.
Don't forget that you can also have some fun and get a Free
Bet-or-two, even if you've never placed a bet online before.
It's quick and easy to sign-up, and once you've placed your
first bet, both bookies mentioned in our Betting
Zone section give you a Free Bet with no catches.
Good luck if you decide to have a flutter too.
