Eighth Round Nominees Announced

Last week there were shenanigans on the part of Channel 4, when nine people were put up for eviction and the voting lines opened a day later and closed a day earlier than normal. This was said to have been a ploy on behalf of C4 to save Luke, but if so, it didn't work because the Wigan wimp received 37% in the public vote and became the 7th Evictee.

This week, things are more straight-forward. The eighth round of nominations took place yesterday, but bear in mind that Darnell was banned from nominating, HoH Rachel couldn't be nominated, Kat and Mikey failed to earn the right to nominate, and Rex and Sara legitimately discussed nominations.

After all that, the result is that the following pair are facing eviction on Friday:

Dale and Stuart.

So, that's exactly who Rex and Sara agreed to nominate, and many of their peers would have nominated them too because the two hunks have been moaning about wanting to go home lately. Also, Stu was in tears after having a letter from his daughter read-out on Sunday, which would doubtless have helped his cause.

But it doesn't look like they'll be reunited any time soon, as it should be a landslide in favour of getting rid of the original Big Brother 9 hunk this week, not the one who arrived at the end of Week 2.

To us, it's crazy that both guys could come this far in the game and not want to go all the way. Of course, some fans will interpret their pleas as sheer bravado; you know, if they get evicted they'll claim to be happy because it's what they wanted. If they really wanted out though, they both know where the door is?

But while Stu has a daughter tugging at his heart strings, we can't work Dale out. The trainee teacher has claimed that he wants to experience a head-to-head eviction, and he almost got his wish last week because it should have been Dale vs Luke.

However, what initially seemed like an ego trip on behalf of the sultry Scouser, could be his downfall. For he deliberately riled his peers in the build-up to the seventh round of nominations, despite not having received one nomination up to that point. So, anyone who didn't buy the homesick story this week may have nominated him at the latest round for his behaviour the week before.

Anyway, it's going to be a tough choice this week... at least for fans of toned, tanned, muscular men!

Ultimately though, we have to say that Stuart is arguably the nicer guy – less egocentric, moody and cynical – and will therefore survive on Friday night, even if the teen girls fancy Dale more. On that note, we tipped Dale to win and even placed a small bet on him a few weeks ago, believing that the teen vote would help him.

However, it looks like he won't even reach the Finale now, and his brooding behaviour and foul language since we backed him have definitely affected his game. So, it rather looks like we're set to lose our stake on Dale scooping the £100k prize money, but we've already made over £600 this series and hope to win a few quid more betting on Dale's inevitable eviction.

If you fancy following suit and having a flutter on the likely outcome of the 8th Eviction, just visit our Betting Zone and click the links to the two bookies there. Both offer a Free Bet of up to £25, and the 8th Eviction market is now available.

Who stays, who goes? YOU decide!

The 8th Eviction of Big Brother 9 will take place on Friday the 8th of August 2008 and voting lines are now open. The voting telephone numbers are detailed in another article from Week 9 of our Latest News section.

Don't forget to vote in our Home page Poll relating to the 8th Eviction when it gets going at around teatime, and remember, it's just for fun so you still need to register a phone vote or two if you desperately want rid-of either nominee.
