Eighth Round Nominees Announced
Last week there were shenanigans on the part of Channel 4,
when nine people were put up for eviction and the voting lines
opened a day later and closed a day earlier than normal. This
was said to have been a ploy on behalf of C4 to save Luke,
but if so, it didn't work because the Wigan wimp received
37% in the public vote and became the 7th Evictee.
This week, things are more straight-forward. The eighth round
of nominations took place yesterday, but bear in mind that
Darnell was banned from nominating, HoH Rachel couldn't be
nominated, Kat and Mikey failed to earn the right to nominate,
and Rex and Sara legitimately discussed nominations.
After all that, the result is that the following pair are
facing eviction on Friday:
Dale and Stuart.
So, that's exactly who Rex and Sara agreed to nominate, and
many of their peers would have nominated them too because
the two hunks have been moaning about wanting to go home lately.
Also, Stu was in tears after having a letter from his daughter
read-out on Sunday, which would doubtless have helped his
But it doesn't look like they'll be reunited any time soon,
as it should be a landslide in favour of getting rid of the
original Big Brother 9 hunk this week, not the one
who arrived at the end of Week 2.
To us, it's crazy that both guys could come this far in the
game and not want to go all the way. Of course, some fans
will interpret their pleas as sheer bravado; you know, if
they get evicted they'll claim to be happy because it's what
they wanted. If they really wanted out though, they
both know where the door is?
But while Stu has a daughter tugging at his heart strings,
we can't work Dale out. The trainee teacher has claimed that
he wants to experience a head-to-head eviction, and he almost
got his wish last week because it should have been Dale vs
However, what initially seemed like an ego trip on behalf
of the sultry Scouser, could be his downfall. For he deliberately
riled his peers in the build-up to the seventh round of nominations,
despite not having received one nomination up to that point.
So, anyone who didn't buy the homesick story this week may
have nominated him at the latest round for his behaviour the
Anyway, it's going to be a tough choice this week... at least
for fans of toned, tanned, muscular men!
Ultimately though, we have to say that Stuart is arguably
the nicer guy – less egocentric, moody and cynical –
and will therefore survive on Friday night, even if the teen
girls fancy Dale more. On that note, we tipped Dale to win
and even placed a small bet on him a few weeks ago, believing
that the teen vote would help him.
However, it looks like he won't even reach the Finale now,
and his brooding behaviour and foul language since we backed
him have definitely affected his game. So, it rather looks
like we're set to lose our stake on Dale scooping the £100k
prize money, but we've already made over £600 this series
and hope to win a few quid more betting on Dale's inevitable
