Big Brother – The Viewer Is Keeping The Show Interesting

It is interesting there is a perception that people who watch Big Brother are not that bright, however this year the viewer is voting to keep the show interesting. In fact this series is a cracker as good if not better then the first two seasons on TEN.

Sure my heart wanted Tully out but my head wanted Ed or Caleb to go as I knew that would be so much more interesting on a number of levels.

The housemates, particularly Tim, seem to think they know who is popular on the outside, however Caleb’s eviction shocked them all. How could the house nice guy get the flick? It will be unsettling for all of them. He was voted out because he was boring, and it was a close vote for Ed as well who is a little dull. Future Big Brother applicants take note if you are not going to create plot lines chances are you won’t stay in. Sure Tully might be unlikeable but everyone is interested in the Drully romance.

Tully of course made it all about her when Caleb was eliminated. Sobbing loudly and then crotch blocking Lucy from hugging Caleb just as he was exiting the house. In fact he did not even hug Lucy who was trying to push her way through, so maybe he is not all that nice.

The romance between Drew and Tully heated up with cringe worthy I love you from both of them and some under the doona pashing. It appears her girlfriend has dumped her and ironically she has done it via the social media. For those who don’t know Tully is a social media strategist. Behind Big Brother has the full story. But the question is can you be dumped if you don’t know about it?

Drew is going down in the likeability stakes with his hook up with Tully plus his tattling to Heidi about Mikkayla bitching about her. Mikkayla asked the others in the kitchen how they put up with Heidi’s rudeness and they were evasive. Mikkayla said she said mean things in a jokey way. After being told Heidi then did a passive aggressive rant at Mikkayla not having issues with anyone in the house. Not a big fan of Heidi as have not seen much of her at all except her bitching. Tim is definitely on her bitch list. In fact it appears Tim is on everybodies bitch list.

Big Brother did a great job of mindf**king Tim tonight leaving him in the bottom two before announcing Caleb was being evicted. Not that it means anything as he ended up getting over 40 per cent of the saved vote, but he won’t know that. It was interesting that what was worse then putting someone else up for nominations was putting yourself up. Tim has to be careful as he is over playing his hand. Strategy wise he should have giving Tahan her hair dryer. Twice it was funny a third time it was a tad mean, also when she took revenge and threw his $400 vest over the wall he cut the cord on her curling iron. He noted later he lost his power by doing that.

Jade was taking Sully’s advice and was ignoring Ed, but what she could not get was that he was not talking about it at all. In fact he may not have noticed or was relieved.

After Caleb was eliminated a lot of the house was in tears including Matt. It was sweet that Caleb got upset about it as well. Note Tully was hanging off the grieving Matt. Caleb also said he had cooled it with Lucy as they were not communicating. No surprise he gave Matt the super power for nominations tomorrow night.

Oh my God, that was hilarious when Big Brother got the guys to blow on Tahan’s hair.

Meathead #1 Matt has just gone up a few notches in my book; nominating Tully 2 weeks in a row. Then he went back down when he wrote Mikkayla’s name down humph (poor girl can’t catch a break).

3 Carole { 09.03.13 at 8:32 pm }

Oh, I thought Tully wasn’t up, but she is.

4 Gabby { 09.03.13 at 8:36 pm }

I want to kiss Matt, well not really, but thanks to him we have got Tully up there, yeah, to think she nearly got away with it. Nice one Matt!

5 GenGenGal { 09.03.13 at 8:39 pm }

I have to mention Hagar the Horrible’s gorilla vest. What makes anybody think a faux gorilla vest is ok? She should be voted out on that alone.

6 No apologies { 09.03.13 at 8:49 pm }

@GenGenGal not to mention the poorly applied neon eyeshadow and ratty hair (was she picking nits out of it all night?).

7 Gabby { 09.03.13 at 8:59 pm }

God that was close, I nearly thought she wasn’t going to be up there. If she knew it was only at the last minute she got up, she would be spewing. No doubt more tears tonight and she is not supposed to be sleeping with Drew. Wonder how that will go down, if indeed it does?
I am so pleased Jade and the sisters missed out, everyone else will be cracking it, good, that’s what I say, they are all a pack of back stabbing individuals.
I wonder how Heidi will take her ten points? It’s great, I love it.
Matt wasn’t too happy having received five points, he’d love to know who gave them to him. Haha.

8 Andrea { 09.03.13 at 10:10 pm }

Only problem is that Heidi will most likely go now before Tully.
With any luck it will be a double elimination and they will both go!
Thank God Matt picked Tully at the end, but too bad he saved himself!

9 Alicia { 09.03.13 at 10:26 pm }

I loved that Matt’s nomination put Tully up but also saved Jade (not that I’m a fan of hers) and Katie and Lucy from potential nomination by removing the tie. I think I’d most like to see Heidi go.

I was impressed that Matt knew how to spell Mikkayla correctly. Unless they have seen the names before? It’s not how I would have spelt it.

10 daisy { 09.03.13 at 10:39 pm }

I haven’t had a chance to read all the comments yet (just finished watching) But Miss Mars. Absolutely agree. It’s called ganging up and it’s a prime method of bullying.

I’m on the same page with your favourites. And I would prefer the blands to stay over Heidi, Matt and Ed. And Tahan has now fallen from grace too.

11 daisy { 09.03.13 at 10:44 pm }

I thought Tully was going for Matt intially but didn’t get far because he’s abstinent. And she’s a lesbian. Ha!

People have different versions of cool. Last year’s cool groups were just dags. This years supposed cool group are just snobs.

12 Sandii { 09.03.13 at 10:51 pm }

Feast is quite interesting. I like the “hot seat”.

13 daisy { 09.03.13 at 10:52 pm }

Chels and Miss Mars, check out some early photos of Rosana Arquette. Tully looks a lot like her too.

Woolif and I just can’t agree…… I think Heidi is a heifer.
He says a sow.

Nasty I know but she is cheesing me off going around slagging off Tim and trying to tear him down.
I bet her sportsbet odds will drop.

14 daisy { 09.03.13 at 10:55 pm }

Let’s hope the twist doesn’t save Heidi. My fingers and everything will be crossed again. I hope Tim, Jade or Mikk win the twist ….and put up Matt. He he.

15 Evan { 09.03.13 at 11:26 pm }

Wow – none of the housemates consider Ben a threat to them winning.
If only they knew how popular he is out there in TV Viewer Land.
I too hope Heidi can not save herself, I want her gone next week.
I want everyone in the “Anti-Tim Alliance” to be booted out in the next few weeks – Heidi, Ed, Tully, Drew, Matthew.

16 brain dead dave { 09.03.13 at 11:27 pm }

Heidi was having a late night feast on her nose during Hot Seat. I counted her picking her nose three or four times and inspecting the content on her fingers. Boogie Nights for her.

Mr Ed is a great dancer, one of the housemates said. Not so sure myself. Love the work of Tim describing him as the white horse Heidi comes in on.

17 Evan { 09.03.13 at 11:28 pm }

I would be OK if the ones left in the final couple of weeks are Tim, Mikayla, Sugar Sisters, Jade and Ben

18 Miss Mars { 09.03.13 at 11:30 pm }

Daisy, agree completely. I don’t mind a couple of HM’s I don’t like sticking around for a while as they keep things interesting but I honestly find Ed, Matt and Heidi to be bland in their bitchiness, so even though the sugar sisters don’t bring much to the viewing experience I’d prefer them to stay over the others as at least they aren’t nasty and bland, just very vanilla. Seeing a different side of Ed this past week and it isn’t doing him any favours, found the voting interesting as I was sure all the tweens would be voting to save him for his looks. Unfortunately it looks like Tulky (hmm, unintentional typo but I think it suits her!) might be gaining some steam popularity-wise, as much as it makes her a rotten human being, her romance with Drew is undoubtedly pulling viewers, I predict she’ll be safe this week. Heidi will probably get the boot, though I suspect the anti-Tim sentiment will continue after she’s gone. Most disappointed in Drew, but Tahan has lost any ground she may have gained with me over the past week, she’s frivolous and bitchy, and for all her ‘I’m a strong woman’ bs, she’s just another sheep following the ‘popular’ crowd. I love the irony of the mutinous group having up on Tim for being manipulative then openly congratulating themselves for successfully manipulating other HM’s to turn on him… What a bunch of hypocrites. I know Tim is manipulative and purposefully tries to stir the pot bit at the end of the day they’re all adults, it’s pathetic that they’re blaming him for their own stupidity. If you don’t want to be manipulated then wisen up, simple as that. Hanging up on him is as pointless as it is petty, his power comes from the fact that they aren’t intelligent enough to think for themselves. Tim for the win! If he makes it to the top 3 I might even vote lol.

19 Miss Mars { 09.03.13 at 11:32 pm }

Woah… Novel sized post, apologies. I only post occasionally so when I do I tend to have a lot of feels… Lol. Note to self: they’re called paragraphs, use them.

20 daisy { 09.03.13 at 11:33 pm }

Evan. Yes, yes, yes! Boo to the anti Tim alliance.
I hope when they get out the analyze their demise.
(did you get that rhyme?)

21 daisy { 09.03.13 at 11:40 pm }

The meatheads are all idiots who don’t know what a mutiny is.

You have to rise up against the authorized leader, who is BB in this case. I think they need the word sabotage, or nobbling (I don’t know how you spell that racing term) as it is Tim who they are attempting to bring down.
Oh and Matt said, “them ones”.

I did have a chuckle to see the teacher one of the nodding blands show her teacher side tonight, ie worring about the neatness of her printing and paper folding. So she is a teacher. LOL.

Don’t worry Sugar lovers. I don’t hate them. As Heidi ad co sink to the bottom, some of the others like the Jade and Ben are rising to the top, and the Sugars are rising to the middle in my book.

22 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 8:30 am }

I think Tim, with all his silliness and carry-on is quite a sensitive person. I think he spoke really well when they were all discussing porn and how it would seem disrespecting his partner. On a side note, Tully, the filthy bitch saying needs porn when her (now ex lol) gf is working nights. Did I hear correct when she said she has apps on her phone and on all her computers etc so that she can access it all the time. Eeew! I have no problem with people choosing to watch porn but she seems excessive in everything she does.

23 Carol (without the e) { 09.04.13 at 9:03 am }

I think much of Tully’s porn talk (true or not) was to impress the boys! I think she’s going to need a lot of it when she gets out and realises she’s single!!! Yeah that’s right… single… cause I doubt Drew will hang around once his mates talk some sense into him!!!

24 daisy { 09.04.13 at 9:09 am }

Drew is anyone’s so he will be gone when the first cutie on the outside wiggles her hips at him. My observation: Drew has a weakness for even moderately pretty girls.

25 daisy { 09.04.13 at 9:12 am }

As for the porn talk: well she’s up isn’t she, and she knows it will get the limelight. A take on your theory Carol.

26 Andrea { 09.04.13 at 9:38 am }

Tully is disgusting, in fact most of the girls thought watching porn was perfectly normal.
All the girls laughed and basically made fun of Katie and Lucy because they had never watched porn.
Tim’s answer was the best, he wasn’t trying to act like a big man like the others.

27 Techhater { 09.04.13 at 9:58 am }

Dave@116 yeah Heidi picking her nose. Maybe she was trying to pick the winner of BB. Lol.

Did anyone else notice that the Sugar sisters went to bed early. For most of the hot seat they weren’t there. And then there’s a shot of them in their pj’s going inside.

28 daisy { 09.04.13 at 10:05 am }

I didn’t watch up-late or whatvever it is called. Any good?
So far all I heard isTully talked dirty and Heidi did the dirty (nose-picking).
And Tim talked sense.
Ad the sisters went to bed. My guess they said, “Mmmm. Yeeeah. Mmmm”.

29 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 10:10 am }

Other years they have had the time noted on the screen. It is hard to judge what time all this takes place. I think I had read somewhere the sugar sisters aren’t big drinkers and than doesn’t drink much either. As a non drinker myself sometimes it is just easier to excuse myself.

30 brain dead dave { 09.04.13 at 10:12 am }

I don’t think the meatheads like having hair on their balls, daisy.

It was a late night feast…of commercials, too.

Plenty of gibbering and big noting, just an average piss up spearheaded by a group of paranoid meatheads.

31 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 10:24 am }

BDD I think Matt said he plucked the hair from his nads. Yikes, I don’t know for sure but I think it would make his eyes water

32 daisy { 09.04.13 at 10:27 am }

So Matt has good flexibility?

Or very long testicles?

I like the word ‘testicles’. Carefully enunciated “testicles’ and “bbrreassts”.

33 brain dead dave { 09.04.13 at 10:37 am }

#131 Yes, Sandii, apparently that’s what he said. You can take it to the bank that it’s agony. It might be less painful after a hot bath….but c’mon gice,ffs!

34 daisy { 09.04.13 at 10:56 am }

Maybe Caleb shaved instead…hence all the scratching and fondling.

35 Gabby { 09.04.13 at 10:57 am }

I’m with you Sandii, couldn’t think of anything worse than sitting in the middle of a bunch of loud mouthed, boring, drunks all trying to out do each other. I would be removing myself as well.
Tully’s an even worse skank now! Drew can have her. Take her home to mum Drew, nice one.

36 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 10:58 am }

BDD I would like a gentleman’s point of view, why, why, why would you do such a thing. Have I been living in the sticks for so long that men want to revert back to prepubescent boys. Huh! Dont get it!

37 Georgie { 09.04.13 at 10:59 am }

Children of the Evolution – there is so much hair being removed these days, the human race will be completely bald after all these hairless ones breed for a few millennia. Those freaky looking cats and dogs come to mind.

38 daisy { 09.04.13 at 11:02 am }

Give me a seventies man anyday. One who doesn’t primp the netherregions, spend hours colouring and grooming his skin, teeth and hair. “You’re so vain”. Who knew men would become such vain girls.
Goodness knows what other decorations they are doing down there these days, besides piercing and tattooing.

39 daisy { 09.04.13 at 11:03 am }

Oh thanks Georgie. So that’s what a penis looks like these days.

40 daisy { 09.04.13 at 11:04 am }

This is rude even for me but I have to say it…
Now even guys have pussy.

41 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 11:05 am }

Gabby, Tully is just filthy. I also agree with carol(?) who said Tully always has to be centre of attention. No matter where or what the action is, there is Tully front and centre. P.s drew can have the bluest eyes in the world, I don’t care. He is a wanker in my opinion. Down the list he goes. I think mr Ed is giving jade enough encouragement to keep her interested but doesn’t want to go “there”. Down the list he goes. Daisy, I like the sugar sisters. Up they go. I really like mikkayla I think she would be my favorite girl. Heidi I don like either. What has become of me I am so judgy these days.

42 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 11:08 am }

Georgie@ 137…. FUNNIEST THING EVER !

43 brain dead dave { 09.04.13 at 11:09 am }

I don’ t know , Sandii. There was a time having hair was celebrated. It’s a younger guy’s metrosexual thing , I guess. It’s not fair to crabs, either.

I’m hairy ,high and low
Don’t ask me why…don’t know
It’s not for lack of bread
Like The Grateful Dead.

From the musical “Hair”

I’ll bet there’s gice out there who get their sacks lasered.

44 Sandii { 09.04.13 at 11:16 am }

BDD I have images of mini me on Austin Power…. “the LASER”air quotes.

45 No apologies { 09.04.13 at 5:32 pm }

Heidi Heifer – picking her nose and picking nits out of her hair? Someone needs a good hose down and disinfecting.
