All Ten Housemates Face Eviction/ It's 'Vote To Save'
Following yesterday's Ninth Round of nominations, all
of the housemates are 'up' this week. This isn't a result
of the actual nominations however, but due to a rule-break
from Marcus and a refusal to nominate by Siavash, the latter
being something we wrote
about last night.
Yesterday afternoon, Marcus flouted the rules by telling
half the group: "I wouldn't mind going home this week,
you lot". Brainbox Sophie replied, "Are you trying
to influence our votes, to go up for eviction?" and that's
precisely what Big Brother thought too, hence the punishment.
Then, just before 6.30pm, Siavash entered the Diary Room
to nominate – the last housemate to do-so – and
told the all-seeing entity: "I'm done. I'm not going
to nominate anyone. I'm not taking part in this little game
any more. I came to this House to hang-out, (and) I'm going
to hang-out without nominating anyone".
So, he followed through with his recent
vow to abstain, and the defiant Iranian was consequently
told by Big Bro: "Siavash, as you have refused to nominate,
there will be consequences for the rest of your fellow housemates".
The situation with Siavash gave the producers a real dilemma
though, because if they were to put everyone up as
punishment for his behaviour, Siavash would go up himself,
thereby getting his wish. Also, he would likely be nominated
by his peers next week, and therefore go up again... but not
get evicted because the public still like him... and therefore
survive to do it again the week after.
Fans speculated about what Big Brother could do, putting
forward their own solutions to the dilemma which ranged from
just throwing Siavash out, to lowering the prize money for
every minute he fails to give his nominations, to confiscating
his clothes and making him wear Y-fronts and argyle socks
until he names two nominees!
Here at BBO, we thought they could shave all his hair off
or stick him in a room full of spiders, but no, they went
with the obvious punishment, and now everyone is facing eviction.
Whatsmore, there's positive voting this week, unlike during
a normal eviction when fans are trying to get their most despised
So, with 'vote to save', it'll be the least popular contestant
that leaves on Friday night – more specifically, the
person who receives the least number of votes – but
that will only make it harder for fans to get rid of people
such as Bea, Lisa and Marcus.
As-for who's likely to go, we have absolutely no idea at
this stage. David? Hira? Lisa? Things will become a bit clearer
when we get a new Poll going on our Home page shortly. Even
so, it's unlikely to reflect the actual public vote result
exactly, because a lot of fans will be happy to vote in a
Poll for free, but are not prepared to pick-up the phone and
pay to vote.
However, just like at the series Finale, when it's always
positive voting ('vote to win'), it's even more important
to vote for your favourite/s this week, to ensure that they
stay in the game.
So, who stays? YOU decide!
The 8th Eviction of Big Brother 10 will take place on Friday
the 7th August 2009, and voting lines are now open. The voting
telephone numbers will be detailed in another article from
Week 9 of our Latest News section soon.
Don't forget to go and vote in our Home page Poll relating
to the 8th Eviction, which 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 a particular
