Ash's Campaign Hash-up Causes Disquiet
With a couple more days until the series Finale, the housemates
wrote and delivered Campaign speeches for each other today.
However, one particular housemate put-in less effort than
the others and it didn't go down well.
The six housemates chose a peer at random to root for, and
were given an hour to write 3-minutes of passionate campaign
spiel, which would be delivered from memory.
Aisleyne was first-up and claimed that she was nervous, making
a total hash of her speech in support of Pete. "He's
brought laughter, fun, silly faces and music to the House,
and respect for nature and creepy crawly things," said
Ash, fidgeting and stumbling over her words.
Her audience of five were not impressed, with Pete holding
his head in his hands in mock despair, saying, "I'm a
goner!" There would later be a backlash against the promo
Glyn went next and told the group how Nikki was 'hilarious
and funny' (the same thing), adding, "She should win
because she is the cutest girl I have ever met... and a brilliant
character... and she hasn't a bad bone in her body".
Jennie was batting for Glyn and said, "If he won, it
would be a big achievement; one of his biggest memories. And
Wales would be so proud of him". Furthermore, she told
how she'd watched him grow from a boy to a man, a 'fully-grown,
wicked dude' and was proud that he'd remained positive.
"Richard deserves to win because he's been one my special
friends in my whole life... everybody loves Richard... because
he's such a strong person and does what he believes in,"
said Nikki in support of good pal Rich.
"He gives the most amazing advice that I will take for
the rest of my life, that I will cherish for the rest of my
life," continued the mini-moaner, as tears rolled the
Canadian's cheeks and Nikki nearly cracked with emotion herself.
Pete was heading Jennie's campaign and told how she's 'the
sort of person you can hang around with and feel comfortable'.
"She's bubbly and bouncy. She can pull silly faces...
well, actually, she is silly. She's a geezer bird
and that's wicked," added the madcap musician.
About the person he was representing, Rich said, "Aisleyne's
no blonde bimbo, 'cos she's not a natural blonde! There's
so many qualities that make her deserving, she's possibly
one of the most overlooked and understated (housemates)."
Furthermore, mirroring what Nikki had said about him, Rich
stated that Ash stands-up for what she believes in, before
concluding, "No-one looks as good in a thong as Aisleyne!"
However, as soon the campaigning ended there was disquiet
among the group, with Glyn telling Rich that he wasn't happy
with Ash, and Nikki getting very vocal about the matter. Aisleyne
did try and smooth things over with Pete, who subsequently
told Big Brother that he didn't think she did it deliberately.
But her suggestion that she was shy – something Nikki
later dubbed 'ludicrous' – doesn't really fit with her
brash image, oft-feisty behaviour, previous modelling work
and the fact that she wants a career in TV.
Pete told the self-styled Ghetto Princess that he was 'cool'
about it, but he was clearly upset. However, it was Ash who
shed some tears over the matter, wrapping herself up in a
duvet and sitting in the garden on her own, sobbing away for
Her peers eventually consoled her, but failed to comment
on whether or not it was yet another trademark Aisleyne 'woe
is me' incident.
