Big Brother – Is George Going To Turn Into A Cad?

George popularity is going to go down with female viewers since he had “the talk” with Layla about how this was a fling only for inside the house.  Layla acted like she was not after anything serious either, I don’t see the relationship making it to the end of the series.

However again have I missed something apparently Angie and Josh have hooked up, I knew they were sleeping together but had not seen any snogging. They also have had the talk about it going no further once they are out of the house.

Other highlights of the episode:

  • Surly the talking fish making a reappearance with Zoe getting her to do two challenges for $500 one was telling all the boys a “When I was in New York” story, and throwing a pair of Ryan’s shoes across the fence.
  • “You’re making me think Big Brother” Ryan said when BB queried that maybe the reason Zoe threw his shoes over the wall was because of food deprivation.
  • Stacey as part of her yes no challenge had to tote around a cardboard cut out of Ryan Gosling but it even funnier when she thought she was going to meet the real thing running around putting on lipstick.
  • Ray said Benjamin hated him by ignoring him, I think Ben probably has the hots for him.
  • Interesting the two people who said no so far on the yes no task have been guys, George and Michael, and they have refused to cut their hair.
  • Ryan, Ben and Bradley had to cook a dinner this week as they were up for elimination. Benjamin said he would host it, then they decided Ryan would so he would come out of his shell. Apparently since being nominated Ryan has become more vibrant. Not sure I have seen any sign of that.

Time to vote to save Benjamin as the show will be really dull if he is gone.

I also thought it was interesting when the dinner topic came up of “what are the pros and cons of being in a relationship in the house?”. Boy, did Angie get defensive or what??!! She needs a cup of “chill the eff out”. But then again, I’m not an Angie fan, so my opinion may be somewhat biased.

I think Bradley tends to gravitate and agree with whoever he is talking with. Now he and Ben are best buddies? Bonding over cooking? Hardly likely.

Ben is very crafty how he lures people into his conversations about others and gets them to agree with him, but I also don’t think he should be evicted as he’s the most interesting in the house.

I loved George, but now I don’t like where he is heading. He obviously has a few tickets on himself and by trying to call the shots with “I don’t want to hurt you cos you’re a nice person” crap, Layla was right to complain to the girls about it, but I suspect she actually really does like George and seems like a relationship girl. She will most likely get hurt in the end but boo-hoo, that’s what happens in Big Brother land!

Funniest thing was the excitement of them all expecting to see Ryan Gosling come out of the diary room! Thick or what …

3 Kelsta { 08.30.12 at 10:05 am }

@Isabel: I reckon! and I thought Stacey had more brains than that! But the other’s all jumped on the bandwagon, and the genius, Michael even stating “Ok, everyone. Just act cool when he comes out”. IDIOTS!

I voted for George in RR’s poll but have to now live with the fact that the dreadlocked dork sucker punched me. Hopefully, $urly will step up to the plate and ask him to hang himself.

It is not that outrageous, they have had people like Pamela Anderson and Killing Heidi (at the peak of their musical fame)enter the house! I am sure there is more celebs but they are the ones i can think about off hand.

6 Kelsta { 08.30.12 at 10:45 am }

yeah, but Ryan Gosling? He seems a little more far-fetched than desperado “I’ll do anything for publicity” Pammie, or not-really-famous Killing Heidi….

7 brain dead dave { 08.30.12 at 10:50 am }

Well, there was Warwick Capper but he had to roll his swag after exposing himself to a couple of female housemates.

I felt sorry for Pamela Anderson because she had to suffer being groped by that dreadlockd ar$ehole from Geelong, Rory.

So there can be risks bringing real live celebs into the house.

It would have been better to keep the shoes and throw Ryan over the wall, too.

How stupid was Zoe not realising that BB wanted her to tell a different story to each boy and do it discreetly so no one caught on that it was a challenge. Then she threw the shoes over the fence in front of the boys!
Ben definitely is playing the game by having conversations with different housemates and encouraging them to express their feelings about others, he knows we are watching and is trying to save himself. Hopefully he will as the others are boring!
Wish George and Michael had cut their hair just for something different. It will grow back you know boys!
BDD, thanks for putting me onto “The Undateables” on ABC2. I watched it last night and really enjoyed it, followed by “We Won’t Drop The Baby” ( about a disabled couple having a baby ), and then another show about a gay couple having kids via a surrogate. These are true English made reality shows done really well and better than a lot of stuff on other channels at the moment.
RR, don’t you accept anyone calling you that C word! Glad I’m not on twitter, can’t see the point!

Ben is very clever and definitely playing the game – he was so into Hosting the dinner when B-Rad then suggested Ryan……Ben then made it very clear it B-Rad who suggested it – I think in the hope that Ryan would look like a dickhead – and he did!

Phoar – how about Ray-Ray washing dishes shirtless – very nice!

I loved Stacey’s reaction to Ryan Gosling – they are so bored in there I imagine anything would set them off!

10 brain dead dave { 08.30.12 at 12:25 pm }

I didn’t know who Ryan Gosling is/was. It had to be explained and I’ve already forgotten that. Should I hang myself?

Far as I know, a gosling is a baby goose.

Own goal, George. The teenage voters will have your arse in a sling for that.

That’s ok , A.P. ABC 2 are doing some great stuff at the moment. It’s just embarrassing when one compares The Undateables to FWAW ,for example.

11 Bolders { 08.30.12 at 12:53 pm }

Can’t get over how stupid they all are – not one of them has been able to articulate a thought. Even that facist vegetarian Sarah.

Stupid stupid stupid – an indicator of the calibre of people that signed up for this thing.

I suppose that promo ad was wishful thinking on Nine’s behalf.

Just read on Behind Big Brother that they are filiming a secret house with actors not far from the Dreamworld loaction and gonna show it to the HM’s on Sunday to think they are in a competition with another house – with the thought process that they will start to behave more competitively……………

14 A.P { 08.30.12 at 1:48 pm }

Sioux Denim, I read that too, it should spice things up a bit hopefully. Apparently they filmed the audience holding up fake signs saying save Tyler or someone else fictional to make the housemates believe there is another house. I think they copied the idea from overseas.’
If the housemates believe it, it will be really funny to watch their reactions.

15 bron { 08.30.12 at 1:54 pm }

unf ray’s arms, that is all.

16 Sioux Denim { 08.30.12 at 2:40 pm }

Agree AP – especially enrage B-Rad who thinks cos he was in the house first he is superior – what a twat! I hope it has the desired effect!

17 brain dead dave { 08.30.12 at 2:54 pm }

I’ll bet that the “genius” falls for it hook ,line and sinker, too.

18 Ari { 08.30.12 at 3:21 pm }

I was laughing my ass off when they thought that they were actually going to meet Ryan Gosling? Really?

Oh and yes agree about Ray. Him washing the dishes was basically porn.

19 bron { 08.30.12 at 4:09 pm }

hahaha ari, i stopped mid-conversation with my mum and practically drooled when his arms appeared on screen, jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez
