I think it's going to be very close, I really hope Halfwit stays in though - even though I like Marcus. Reason being that I want Bea to go up against Halfwit and I think there's a good chance of that next week. I want Halfwit to win and then laugh in her face, preferably with him giving her the V's at the same time. Can understand what you mean though. Marcus is really the only one who will stand up to anyone and can remain calm under pressure.

Horrendous woman, makes nasty nick look like a credit to humanity :rolleyes:

Funniest thing to come out of it was Marcus saying. "Weren't we having a nice chat about Girls Aloud before she came in?"

And Charlie is so transparent with his taking her side. He could have won some kudos points with the audience if he'd have said it like he'd seen it, but he decided to play the bully card with her. What an absolute tool he is.

On the subject of bullying, people who are bullied rarely admit it as it's happening. Except Bea who screams and shouts at people and then when they answer her back, no matter how calm and measured, she accuses them of bullying her. Mentalist!

Halfwit has become terribly cocky, though. Another eviction survival will take him over the edge. He's already holding it over the other housemates heads.

The other thing is, if you take away Bea's main target it'll force her to find another. Marcus and Siavash don't give her an inch - while Halfwit goes in guns blazing and Bea uses it against him. Halfwit going rather than staying would actually see Bea crumble.

I like Halfwit though, I don't mind him being cocky at all with all the crap he's taken. I've seen a few things posted online where people have been saying he's this and that. Out of all the BB contestants ever I'd say he's taken the most grief, it's legendary. Most people I think would go a bit crazy and taking that amount of abuse in a confined space. I think his outlet is to be arrogant. It's all he's got left.

It was all began by Lisa, turning people against him.

I didn't like Halfwit to begin with too. Then I realized he's just misunderstood and is a decent guy at heart.

Going back to Lisa, she's a stayer isn't she? How's she still in there? She's being very careful about what she does, I'm amazed she's managed to keep it up.

Oh he is a decent bloke, but it's a case of damaged goods now. I just can't see him pulling it back if he stays in the house with Bea any longer. He'd be better off leaving and having his week on BBLB to restore his old self. He's a certified BB legend now. He can go. He doesn't need to win. He certainly shouldn't win purely to spite another housemate. That's how we ended up with Rachel winning last year.

He has been through his fair share, that's true, but there's always been an element of him pushing it here and there. I'd say half of the trouble he's had has come from him not knowing when to just leave things. Bea has been awful, there's no doubting that, but she was right about him over analysing situations.

The cockiness is fine if it's justified, I'm just not entirely convinced it is with Halfwit. He lacks humility.

Actually, so does Bea. Perhaps there's where the real clash comes from. They're just too similar. They both want to be seen as bohemian hippies but in reality they're insecure worriers trying to live up to their idea of what kind of person they should be. Neither of them know who they really are as a person.

I on the other hand know who I am.

A waffler.

Apparently, Rodrigo's ex-boyfriend was some bloke called Michael Booth.

Summat, you ain't telling us, Mike?

Shit! Secret's out!

Actually, that's the name of the guy who lives a couple of doors away from me. I actually live on the same road as someone else with the same name. Havoc for the postman.

Marcus to win for me, he's provided the most amusement of the people who are left in there. Rodrigo has provided quite a bit of amusement too, but Marcus just edges it. Siavash out of the game for the way he treated his missus on the outside.

Sophie who I didn't like originally is quite funny now she's not with Worzel. I wouldn't want her to win though. Hope she makes it to the final.

I'd like it be:

1st Rodrigo

2nd Sophie

3rd Marcus/Siavash

Whether it turns out like that is another matter.

The housemates have just been told that anyone who refuses to nominate will automatically give Sophie and Charlie a vote each. Obviously BB are targeting them as they're popular within the house. It should jolt them into nominating properly for the last eviction vote rather than trying to get everyone up.

It could well be Siavash and David up this week if they duly vote. I'd been hoping David would go this week as I'd like it to be an all originals final week, with Charlie either going on the surprise eviction on Tuesday or first out on final night.

The oil wrestling was pretty funny.

Why did they single out Charlie and Sophie?

They're the most popular within the house. It seems Siavash still didn't nominate, the only one to do so. It kicked off a row last night, fuelled by extra alcohol provided by BB.

He's shot himself in the foot though because it means David is safe (and so will obviously go on the surprise eviction next Tuesday, giving us no surprise at all). It looks to be Siavash and Marcus this week.

Agh, Lisa in the final. That's annoying.
There's always one that slips through to the end.

Back to Siavash, his intentions are actually quite honorable in putting himself up. He wants to be up so that the public chooses whether he reaches the final or not. He doesn't want to get there simply because the public just didn't get the opportunity to vote him out beforehand. Which basically is what's happened with Lisa.

David's pissed off that Sophie and Rodrigo voted for him. He claims he's not bothered but he can't take it that he's not popular enough not to be nominated. He has an elevated opinion of himself. That's why I wanted him out before the final week. Nevermind.

The way I see it, winning Big Brother would have the most positive effect on Rodrigo and Sophie, be detrimental to Charlie and Marcus and a neutral effect on Siavash. Lisa and David are out the running anyway. Winning would actually ruin Marcus I think.

I'm glad they changed it so the surprise eviction was a vote to go rather than who just happened to have the lowest vote to win. Stopped it being predictable as I really didn't know whether it would be Lisa or Charlie going last night. She was so the right person to go. Bless Rodrigo. If it wasn't for him she wouldn't have been up for the vote. He practically deserves to win for that act alone.

I'm quite happy for either Rodrigo, Sophie Or Siavash to win. Any of them would make a good winner of the series. I don't mind Charlie so much anymore. He's still a prat but he's begrudgingly grown on me over the last few weeks. There are worse people in world than Charlie. It was just the first 6 weeks he layed it on too thick.

3 posts in a row? :oops:

Finale tomorrow night. Will be sad to see the series end actually as it's been a good one. All the evictions have pretty much gone the right way and there have been plenty of laughs. Almost died laughing at the Single Ladies dance last night. :D

I'm hoping they use Strawberry Swing by Coldplay for the series highlights. It's my favourite track at the moment and it would suit it I think. It's been a good year. I've enjoyed it.

I think I'd like Sophie to win as she's shown a lot of humility with how she's handled herself from the pregnancy jibes and how she was treated by Kris. She's also not afraid to admit when she's been wrong. And she's a bit daft which I like.

Runner up Rodrigo or Siavash. I wouldn't like Siavash to win because I think cheating on his girlfriend was an awful thing to do to someone. He must have something about him if he can do that and still be likable though. At least he admits he's not a worthy winner and he was in the wrong. It was a huge mistake not just in BB but in life. Not a nice thing to do to anyone.

From the former housemates I think Marcus and Halfwit would have been my favourites.
