Is Rex's Game Starting To Unravel?

In light of his recent behaviour, we consider whether Rex's game is starting to unravel and he's just sown the seeds to his inevitable failure in the game... or is it the complete opposite?

Big Brother 9 has to be unique (at least among the more recent series) in that we're over half-way through, yet we don't really have a clue who's going to win. And with twelve contestants still remaining, Rex is apparently one of those in the running, having overtaken Dale/ Luke to become the bookies' 4th/ 3rd favourite (1st and 2nd faves with all bookies are Kat and Darnell).

We're slightly bemused by this, as we've never met anyone who actually likes the serial show-off; the reaction we usually get is that people don't mind him. However, in real life, aren't people who continually flaunt their luxury lifestyle and always talk about themselves usually despised?

Admittedly, possessing a huge amount of charisma and wit can make-up for such self-important shortfalls, but all Rex has in his arsenal is cutting sarcasm and insults, which he uses regularly on best mate Mo.

That said, we appreciate that up until this point, some fans have enjoyed Rex's honesty and the fact that he says what he's thinking without holding back.

Of course, that's the polar opposite to fence-sitter Rachel, someone Rex seems to have a huge bee in his bonnet about. However, his challenge on Sunday night, after having seen his Welsh peer's entrance VT along with fellow Heavenly Housemates Mikey, Mo and Stuart, could be the chef's undoing.

For we started receiving angry e-mails as soon as last night's highlights show had ended, with many fans dubbing the rich Daddy's boy a vicious, evil, vindictive bully.

Yes, Rachel is undoubtedly dull. Yes, it's obvious that she exaggerated her character in-order to get on the show. And yes, we can't wait to see the back of her 'scolded puppy' face and boring conversation about how to pronounce words like tooth.

However, Rex's constant needling of the trainee teacher will only serve to destroy her confidence and make her even more withdrawn. On that note, if we were in the Big Brother House we'd take Rex aside and ask him to give Rachel a break now, and we're not even fans of hers.

Anyway, although Rex has crept-up in the popularity stakes lately, his apparent popularity could be down to the fact that other contestants have more detractors, something we said about Kat in Week 5 (see here). However, the 24-year-old's verbal attack on Rachel at the weekend may have been a step too far and could see his chances of winning halted.

Frankly, we genuinely don't mind who wins, but we'll be surprised if Rex recovers from this blip and goes on to scoop the £100k prize money. After all, he's already minted (and don't we know about it) and possesses none of the looks, charm, charisma, quirkiness or fun-loving nature of a BB Winner.

So, is Rex still in with a chance? YOU decide!
