Big Brother Australia – Election Time
The housemates were shocked to hear there was an election going on, however considering they were all voting by postal vote who signed the postal vote forms for them which only came out after the election was announced?
Clearly Mikkayla does not “give a Gonski” and I was surprised that as a school teacher she was so pro-liberal. Any teacher’s voting for her this week may not be quite so enthusiastic to pick up the phone. Also more surprising that she called Tony Abbott “a brilliant man”. Sure vote for the coalition but not sure about the brilliant adjective.
But props to Mikkayla for being so vocal about who she was going to vote for and in fact it was a lost opportunity for the housemates to have a political discussion but the viewer only saw a few moments of it. KRudd, Tony Abbott, and Christine Milne were piped in to give a “you should vote for me spiel”. What was interesting was how emotional Ben and Tully were when the Prime Minister mention marriage equality. Christine Milne was clever and gave a shout out to Mr Clooney.
There has been some furore about Tony Abbott saying in the camera piece that he did not have bad looking daughters personally don’t know what all the fuss was about, but it was interesting he did not say anything about any policy issue.
But why did they give Clive Palmer any air time is he really going to get a significant vote and by significant I mean more than 5 per cent. Was it because he is a Queenslander and the BB house is in Queensland. Pity they did not get Julian Assange piped in for the Ecuador Embassy to spruik for his quickly folding Wikileaks party.
If a political discussion breaks out on the comments today please be mindful of peoples view and that they may be different from your own. Also if you are voting for the Clive Palmer Party let me know why as I am genuinely curious.
Instead we had to put up with bad singing from the housemates due to the boy/girl band challenge.
Each gender had to record a song and the one with the most hits on it will mean they get to perform it on the live show. Jade and Mikkayla’s voices were OK. Tully’s was not but she seemed to think it was fabulous saying to the boys it only took me one take!
Tully was not happy that the boys were in a separate bedroom for the challenge as she lost all her mates for a couple of days. Drew was just as pathetic and ran into her bed at 4.30am waking up a few people to have a snuggle, and have a “you smell delicious conversation” before running out again.
Big Brother Confidential was slightly dull with us learning Mikkayla liked cooking, Jade bed hopping and Heidi bitching.
