Does Liam Have It All Sewn-Up?
For the first couple of weeks of Big Brother 8, we had no
idea who was going to win the series; this is always a good
thing. Now however, three weeks in, we wonder whether Liam
has got the game all sewn-up already?
Even though there's probably one-or-two more newbies to come,
we feel that latecomers will never win Big Brother and Liam
is such a 'nice guy' that it will be hard to beat him; despite
the fact that there are shades of Cameron Stout about his
existence in the game i.e. a bit boring.
However, he doesn't get involved in arguments, he's not crude,
he can be fun and – probably the most crucial
aspect – he comes across as just a normal bloke who's
gone into the House for the experience, not to try and make
become famous, get 'deals', become a celebrity or make money.
On that last issue, the 22-year-old has already scooped the
£100,000 that his peers think is the prize money, so
he doesn't even need to carry-on in the game. Not we think
he would quit, as he just doesn't seem like that kind of guy.
However, will the public let him win another £100k,
the real prize money? Or, will we see a situation as in Big
Brother 6, where Eugene Sully may well have won the series
if he hadn't already accepted half the prize money in the
In other words, the public chose to have two winners in crowning
Anthony Hutton the Winner.
Looking at the betting odds since Liam arrived, he was 8/1
(to Win) when he entered the Big Brother House on Day 17 along
with Billi, Jon and Brian. By the next day he'd shortened
He then went to 6/1, which is where he was on the day Liam
was awarded the £100k by his three peers (Day 22). This
is when we backed him at the bookies.
Within a couple of days he was 9/2, and then 4/1 by Day 23.
Then he went to 7/2 on the next day, and 100/300 a couple
of days later. Finally, by Day 27, Liam's odds were 3/1, where
he remains today; the favourite to win Big Brother 8 at the
time of writing (29th June, Day 31).
This is a great time to back the tree surgeon if you think
he can do it, because although there are still 9 weeks to
go, if you wait another month, his odds could well have gone
from 3/1 to a low 1/3. That means you'd have to put £30
on to win a £10 profit.
Today, however, if you were to stake £30 on Liam being
the Overall Winner at 3/1, and you were successful, you'd
win £90 profit. If you were to stake £10, you'd
win £30, if you staked £60 you'd get £180
profit, and a stake of £100 would see £300 'quid
in your back pocket, plus your stake back. Not bad.
