Who Goes Tonight? YOU Decide!
Tonight, either Charley or Nicky will leave the Big Brother
House in the 5th eviction of the series. However, whoever
goes will return to the group after being interviewed by Davina.
Yep, it's Big Brother's first ever 'fake eviction'.
On Tuesday afternoon we said that Charley would definitely
leave in the fake eviction, based on the fact that she received
such a huge percentage (45% versus Nicky's 14%) in our Poll
in the run-up to the nominees being announced.
That Poll featured eleven housemates and Ziggy was the only
other one who got a substantial amount of the vote (22%).
However, we quickly edited our article to say that Charley
would probably go on Friday, as it soon became obvious
that is was closer than we anticipated between her and Nicky.
Both are hate figures, Nicky because she's so moody and moany,
but also because she bitches behind people's backs. Indeed,
some people think that's a good reason to fake-evict her tonight,
as her peers will hear what she has to say about them during
However, even though Davina is unlikely to reveal that her
peers have been watching the proceedings, the danger of fake-evicting
Nicky is that she may decide she doesn't want to go back in.
In other words, it would be a total anticlimax if she opted
to take the opportunity to go home.
Charley, on the other hand, pretty-much says what she thinks
all the time, but even so, her peers will hear precisely what
she thinks of them. Also, at the interview she will learn
who nominated her, so it could make for an explosive re-entry
to the House! She is unlikely to give-up the opportunity to
Her throwing water over Gerry on Wednesday night showed how
horrible Charley really is, and the way she tried to suggest
it was a bit of fun is typical of the way she avoids taking
responsibility for her actions.
After that incident, surely more viewers will want Charley
fake-evicted, if only to let her know how hated she really
is on the outside? Hopefully, the eviction crowd will boo
and jeer for all they're worth. And then some.
Davina apparently tried to manipulate the crowd at Billi's
eviction by telling them not to chant against Charley, but
hopefully tonight's crowd will boo at every opportunity: before
the evictee is announced, as her name is being announced,
as she exits the house and, when appropriate, during the actual
Ultimately, because more Charley detractors are likely to
register votes than those who dislike Nicky, we feel that
the former will leave tonight.
Online bookie Paddy
Power has taken over £60,000 on Charley being the
person who gets fake-evicted, and you can still bet on this
market if you wish. They are also taking bets on how many
viewers will watch tonight's show, who Charley will argue
with first upon her return, and what cliché she'll
utter first during her interview with Davina ('Oh my God',
'I'm not being funny...' etc)
