Fifth Round Nominees Announced: Five Are Up
Just like last week, yesterday's Fifth Round of nominations
was a normal procedure where everyone could nominate and be
nominated, and all nominations counted. However, Big Brother
has played around with things this week and affected the result.
Firstly, Charlie was put 'up' yesterday evening for the reasons
Then, after we'd written an article/ sent-out an e-mail announcing
that there were three nominees this week, Kris and
Sophie went up too, for the reasons given here.
So, for the first time since the series began, more than
two people are facing (a proper) eviction, and they are: Charlie,
Freddie (Halfwit), Kris, Marcus and Sophie. Just to make it
clear, Freddie and Marcus would have been the only ones facing
eviction if Big Brother hadn't started handing-out punishments.
This means that, according to our calculations, five-time
nominee Freddie now holds the record for facing the most consecutive
evictions during any series of Big Brother UK. Last week,
Freddie had equalled BB2's Paul 'I've lived my life like an
International pop star' Clarke's record, someone who faced
four evictions in a row back in 2001.
Anyway, despite the fact that he received a whopping 7 nominations
this week (Marcus got 5), Freddie is highly unlikely to be
going on Friday night, so it's not really worth discussing
the possibility. Okay, so he annoys a lot of fans, but it
seems that more and more people are coming to like his eccentric
ways and demeanour.
Plus, Freddie is undoubtedly the underdog in the House, mainly
because he's always picked-on by Kris and Lisa, and we Brits
do love to support the underdog... even if they are posh,
rich, well-educated and a bit odd!
So, this week it's between Charlie, Marcus, Sophie and Kris,
except that Sophie won't get many votes, so you can count
her out-of the running.
When it looked like it was set to be just Charlie, Freddie
and Marcus facing eviction last night, we initially thought
that Marcus would be the obvious evictee. However, when we
weighted our recent 'Who do you want out next?' Poll (which
featured all ten remaining housemates) to take into account
the possibility that the Lisa and Kris detractors might focus
their combined attention on fellow clique member Charlie,
the likely result of the public vote was: Charlie: 76%, Marcus:
17% and Freddie 7%. In fact, our original (3-way) '5th Eviction'
Poll showed a similar result in the early stages last night.
Indeed, although Job Centre worker Charlie showed lots of
promise at the beginning of the series, he has since demonstrated
a nasty side, which is not helped by his close alliance with
the Kris/ Lisa clique and the fact that he's immature and
easily led. He is also a bit too silly for many fans, who
may tire of his pointless spats with Rodrigo if they continue.
But Charlie's saving grace is the fact that Public Enemy
Number One, Kris, is also up this week now, the man who received
a whopping 46% in the aforementioned Poll when up-against
nine other people. It's safe to assume that he's not liked
then, and Big Bro's manipulation of things will come as a
Godsend to a great number of fans.
During his time in the House, Kris has proven that he is
vindictive, rude, nasty, rather dull and extremely arrogant.
His constantly treating Freddie like he's the 's**t on his
shoes' also rankles with viewers.
Now that Kris is facing eviction, his votes won't be divided-up
like they would have been before, but we're still not sure
how close Marcus will come to getting booted. The Wolverine
lookalike is definitely not the cool-and-irresistible dude
that he thinks he is. His pseudo-intelligent waffle, constant
foul language, banter about martial arts and arguably lecherous
behaviour towards Noirin definitely grates with some fans,
although others would argue that he's a more interesting character
Anyway, we reckon that this week's public vote result could
go something like this: Sophie: 2%, Freddie: 5%, Charlie:
10%, Marcus: 23% and Kris: 60%. But it almost doesn't matter
what the actual figures are, suffice to say that Kris is history
this week, his most ardent detractors already hoping that
he'll beat the all-time record and get over 94% himself...
in a five-way vote!
Who stays, who goes? YOU decide!
The 5th Eviction of Big Brother 10 will take place on Friday
the 10th of July 2009, and voting lines will open on Tuesday
evening. The voting telephone numbers will be detailed in
another article from Week 5 of our Latest News section soon.
Don't forget to go and vote in our Home page Poll relating
to the 5th Eviction, which is now live and will run until
Friday evening. Remember, it's just for fun and you still
need to register a phone vote or two if you desperately want
rid-of either nominee.
Seeing as it's a 5-way vote it might actually be worth having
a little flutter this week, so if you'd like to check-out
the odds for the 5th Eviction and maybe have a bet on the
outcome, visit our Betting
Zone and click one of the links to the bookies there.
Both offer new customers a Free £25 Free Bet, so in
a way you can't lose, and the odds will likely be available
from Tuesday morning.
