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
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
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
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withdrawn.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!
