Voting Closes Tonight (Thursday)

There's only (!) eight people facing eviction this week now that Maysoon has quit the game, but you don't have until 9.30pm on Friday to vote for the one you'd most like to get rid-of at the 7th Eviction, as would normally be the case.

We say that because the voting lines will close at midnight tonight (Thursday, 31st of July 2008), something Big Brother hasn't really made clear enough in our view.

Fans have asked us why this is, and all Channel 4 can say is that it's something to do with admin. That's rather vague, and seeing as the votes are effectively counted by computers, we can't see why it isn't feasible to keep the lines open until Friday night.

Even if they had to close an hour earlier to verify all the votes, it would make more sense than closing them tonight, because a lot of fans will be unaware of the situation and miss-out on the opportunity to vote. It is generally accepted that the majority of votes are placed on a Friday.

On that note, the more sceptical fans have already suggested that this is some kind of ploy to save Luke, especially when combined with the fact that it would have been Luke vs Dale until Big Bruv suddenly decided to put seven more people up for eviction.

We don't know about that, but what-with the voting lines opening a day later this week and effectively closing a day earlier, inevitably there won't be as many votes registered and it could possibly skew the result.

The less sceptical will doubtless argue that there'll be fewer votes for everyone, so the percentages will be the same, but with so many people facing eviction and such a short period of voting, there's definitely scope for the result to be much closer than it might have been.

For instance, if Luke's detractors were waiting until Friday night to vote, but Dale or Mohamed's have already called in, the result could go in a different direction.

Channel 4 say that they'll make no money from the voting during Big Brother 9, however several charities will benefit. You can find the voting telephone numbers for the 7th Eviction in our Latest News section.
