Tully Dumped And Big Brother Contestants Contact Outside World

Tully’s ex-girlfriend, Tahlia Farrant,  has ruled out getting back with Tully but did reveal to the Sunday Telegraph that they had had a civilised conversation.

Tahlia also revealed she had knocked back offers to talk to the weekly gossip magazines as she is a private person, but she is talking to Sunday Telegraph for free! She should have taken the cash hooked up with a hottie and taken her on a holiday to Bali, now that would have been sweet revenge.

The article also states Tully was on a media ban last week by NINE, though she has been active on Twitter. It does make you wonder if the rumour of her going back in the house is true. Somehow I doubt it as she now knows how everyone is being portrayed and it would definitely be unfair to all the other eliminated contestants.

However next year they should consider giving the public the power to vote one of the evicted housemates back into the house.

This year for the first time the contestant’s were able to write a message to the outside world and it was printed in the Sunday Telegraph. Ed used his message to have a swipe at Tim.

He wrote:

My best moment in the Big Brother House was the Mandate (boy band) experience. This was completely out of my comfort zone and something I would never do in my normal life. My worst would have to be losing the last four or five Housemates in particular. They were all close friends of mine and I was looking forward to sharing this experience with them all as long as possible.

Tim — manipulator and creator of havoc. He is playing a game in here based on emotional bullying and using tactics that are nasty and upsetting to others. Can’t be trusted.

Drew — funny, likable guy. Had a very ‘questionable’ relationship with Tully which I think he may regret when he leaves the House.

Ben — genuine, honest person. Has triumphed over many obstacles in life to be here. Would be the front runner to win Big Brother.

Sisters — cute, adorable, sweet, funny girls who have a love for family like no other. True sweethearts who look for the best in people.

Mikkayla — strong, intelligent, brave women who has overcome a lot in her life. Can come across as bossy at times.

Tahan — funny, brutally honest girl who gets herself into trouble sometimes. She is very intelligent but lets people think she not.

Jade — intriguing, beautiful, well-travelled girl who is very grounded and knows what she wants in life.

Drew writes that the worst moment in the house was when Tully was evicted. Ben writes that he has been forced to confront and challenge my predisposition to suffering with anxiety and depression in a very public forum.

Tim writes that he is there to play the game and is not to fly under the radar.

Hey Gabby i just checked out Birkenstock shoes. They do look oh so comfy. Layla from last year had the worst shoes ever.

2 Gabby { 09.30.13 at 10:04 pm }

Sandii they are comfy and I have worn nothing else for years. I remember Layla toppling along in her wedges last year.
Must admit this years housemates are offering so much more for us to rabbit on about.

3 daisy { 09.30.13 at 10:08 pm }

Try Naot shoes. Fabulously orthotic and comfy but without sacrificing fashion. No nanna shoes. From Israel.

4 Sandii { 09.30.13 at 10:15 pm }

Daisy, they are quite pretty. Definitely not too nanna-ish.

5 daisy { 09.30.13 at 10:24 pm }

I am going for the malta brown boots next.

6 Sandii { 09.30.13 at 10:27 pm }

I have been trying to think who the new intruder Maddie reminds me of and I think I have finally thought of it. She really reminds me of Angie in last years season. Obviously Angie has bleached blond hair but the face and mannerisms are quite similar

7 Miss Mars { 09.30.13 at 10:32 pm }

I’m 25 and a bit shoe obsessed, I’m only 5’1 so I live in heels, they are however all very pretty (in my opinion) :p.

I see on the live feeds that Tahan and Tim are already making plans to ‘set up’ Maddie and Ed, and they’ve speculated he’ll hook up with her as ‘she’s his type’. Somehow I doubt we’ll see that happen, Ed may be thick but I think even he would realise how bad that would make him look. He’s kind of been a bit more ‘into’ Jade of late anyway, wonder what that’s about…

Really keen to see what Boog brings, Maddie is just too much of a stunt cast for me. I’m yet to hear that Boog has a modelling/acting/music/other entertainment background, so that automatically puts her ahead in my books.

8 Sandii { 09.30.13 at 10:39 pm }

MM my daughter is around your age and is also shoe obsessed. I love sky high heels ( although I don’t wear them anymore) but I am not convinced about shoes like the ones that Boog wore tonight.

I think you are right about Ed. He isn’t that dumb to think the public would embrace him if he did the dirty on his faux gf Jade. Agree with you about Boog, it is refreshing that she isn’t a model/actor

9 daisy { 09.30.13 at 10:45 pm }

There are quite a few teeny tiny girls on this blog. Nice ones too.
So you reckon this Boog is nice. Hideous name.
What do bbhm, Carol and BDD think?

10 Scuba { 09.30.13 at 10:47 pm }

@57 and @58

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news:

11 daisy { 09.30.13 at 10:49 pm }

BTW to whom it may concern; no hotmail atm.

And we got free upgrade to beachfront suite without even asking. It was vacant :)

12 Sandii { 09.30.13 at 10:50 pm }

Scuba… I am disappointed, that’s bullshit.

13 Bbhm { 09.30.13 at 10:52 pm }

Yeah liking boog, still deserving my judgement on maddy .
I couldnt stop staring at her teeth, I know that’s superficial, but I can’t get past it.
So want maddy and ed to get together.

14 Lizzie { 09.30.13 at 11:11 pm }

Scuba and Sandii – damn, another wannabe. Like Bbhm I’ll reserve judgment for a while.

Miss Mars you’re an inch taller than me! And no, I didn’t like her wedges – like strapping bricks to your feet!

15 Deano { 09.30.13 at 11:26 pm }

I think Mr. Clooney is the most genuine.. But seriously. Everyone thinks they’re genuine. That task was aimed at creating conflict..

16 Deano { 09.30.13 at 11:34 pm }

Justynn was evicted in broad daylight. By Drew. And he didn’t appear on stage live. Mikkayla commented (live) that Justynn was only there 3 days. Reeks of a conspiracy theory.

17 Evan { 09.30.13 at 11:42 pm }

A nice attempt by Channel 9 & Big Brother to sugarcoat Justynn’s demise, but there were enough clues tonight(especially from Mikayla, Ed & Ben) to confirm to me that something untoward involving Justynn insulting other housemates DID occur on Friday.
That goodbye message to the housemates looked far too rehearsed, as if Justynn was reading off a script.
Anyway, he has gone – that is the main thing.
Happy for Nathan, although I doubt that he will pose any threat to the people we consider as favourites to win this year.
As for the 2 new ladies, I am kinda liking Madalaine more than Boog right now, but that is based on a very initial first impression.
Tim and Tahan are turning into a rather nasty twosome, Tahan especially. Looks like Jade will be the victim of their scheming to create some romance between Ed and Maddie, and also Tim was trying to stop Ben making friends with the new girl.

18 Deano { 09.30.13 at 11:50 pm }

Looks like Boog / Alex Roe is another actor.

19 Deano { 09.30.13 at 11:57 pm }

Big Brother are really going after the average Aussie.. Not.
Madaline Cogar is a lawyer who represents Dreamworld…

20 Eliza { 10.01.13 at 12:05 am }

Miss Mars, welcome to the short but sweet club. High five for 5’1, you can join myself and Andrea. I feel tall standing next to Lizzie 😉 hehe

I am same age as you (although I just turned 26 wahh) and I love to collect pretty heels to look at them but hate wearing them! When I was in my late teens/early twenties my friends and I used to go out in sandals and it was the best!

Good job, Daisy on your upgrade.. Hope you’re having a great time!

Sorry didn’t watch BB tonight so can’t comment on that! Although, this Maddie girl doesn’t look overly attractive. I read comments with people saying she has a man body which I thought was a bit harsh.

21 daisy { 10.01.13 at 12:12 am }

Eliza, I have a man’s body.

It’s lying beside me, asleep and snoring.

And yes. Check the Taaras, Redang.

22 Bbhm { 10.01.13 at 1:01 am }

Evan #67

If ed and jades feelings are genuine , no amount of scheming would separate them. And I didn’t find Tim or Tahan nasty, just verbalizing what everyone is thinking. They all know that Ed isnt that into Jade, so having an attractive girl in the house would create conflict, as all the girls seem to prefer ed and think he is hot. So that is the obvious scenario and since Jade is so aggressively possessive of him, it will definitely create conflict.

23 Calorie Loader { 10.01.13 at 1:57 am }

Thanks Scuba, at least we know where BB is getting all the intruders from now-another one from the StarNow pool!! I’m pretty sure Booga said tonight she was 157cm and on profile it says 162cm. There can always be discrepancies from one measurement to another but 5cm!!!
Daisy, no speculation needed this time, this one’s actually from NIDA!! P.S. Nice one on the upgrade, we were all getting a bit crammed in your other room:)

Not sure about the intruders yet, but was that Ed who said ‘HE-LLO’ like he liked what he saw when Maddie walked in. He wasn’t holding back.

Favourite moments tonight were both in the spa:
1) When Ed fell out!! Classic, had to keep the noise down!
2)Nathan saying how he naturally gravitates towards sugar sisters, etc how nice they are blah blah and Tahan and Ben looking so disinterested and in disagreement.

Was surprised Jade looked so unhappy to see Boog but not Maddie, maybe she finally got her game face one once she realised another female was coming in. Maybe it’s dawned on all of them how much more game play is still to come.

Yeah the ‘Genuine’ line up was ROFL-worthy. Ed at the top of the pack and Tahan at the bottom…wow, and also wow to Ed never moving in general from that top spot no matter what the category.

24 Calorie Loader { 10.01.13 at 2:32 am }

Unless of course it was an unfavourable attribute such as annoying where he quickly hopped down to the least end,nice one.

Also in previous comment that should have read cramped.

25 Andrea { 10.01.13 at 7:00 am }

Scuba @60, thanks for that, its like they try to hide things from us.
Bad luck ALEX, ( why not use that nice name instead of Boog? Its hideous ) you have let me down already, same with the Dreamworld lawyer.
What is the point of “real people even auditioning?
Deano @68@69, I agree with you too.

26 daisy { 10.01.13 at 7:31 am }

Don’t give me that Calorie Loader. You didn’t even come home last night after the beach party.

27 daisy { 10.01.13 at 7:35 am }

Andrea’ it sucks doesn’t it, that they are using actors, models and djs but encouraging the public to audition.

28 Sandii { 10.01.13 at 7:52 am }

I heard her say that her dad gave her the nickname when she was a tiny baby and the name stuck. Like she said it sounds weird when you first hear it but you get used to it. Knowing it is a nickname not a real name does make it better. I have a friend who is known as Snow and have been friends with the family for years and only recently found out his real name.

29 Andrea { 10.01.13 at 7:52 am }

Well hopefully the public will wise up and not waste their time lining up all day!

30 daisy { 10.01.13 at 8:15 am }

Snow is fine. But Boog. No way.

Other nicknames I wouldn’t want : snotty, booger, pooh or fart.

31 simone { 10.01.13 at 9:20 am }

Bloody Justynnnnn letting that dog maul his hands like it’s some kind of game. That is just shocking dogmanship. Dogs play like that with other dogs, not with people. If he thought he was good with dogs, he was dead wrong. He deserved to be evicted purely for that.

32 simone { 10.01.13 at 9:22 am }

Andrea @36, refusing to allow a dog to jump on you doesn’t mean you don’t like dogs, it means you don’t want muddy paws and sharp claws shoved disrespectfully upon your person. Anyone who lets a dog leap up on them should remember that the same dog will then go ahead and jump up on small children, little old ladies, and people who are genuinely frightened of dogs, and that’s unacceptable. Very poor handling. Boog was quite right to disallow it.

33 Andrea { 10.01.13 at 9:24 am }

Fair enough Simone, I understand.

34 Calorie Loader { 10.01.13 at 12:43 pm }

Just did a Ben snort Daisy@76…comes forward in a submissive position, tail between legs-looks like I’ve got some splaining to do:-P

35 Calorie Loader { 10.01.13 at 12:48 pm } looks like most of the hm’s are covered with those names:) Boog at least is good natured about the host of other names she gets called when revealing that nickname. Tim was in heaven when he heard, quickly making picking motions at his nose and then requesting if he could call her a bunch of related names. On showing her around the house, he comically said, ‘here’s your bed boo-ga’-Drew bursting into fits of laughter in background ( I think Drew is beginning to recover from being captured and starting to show signs of life jumping back into prank planning with Tim).
