Big Brother – The Elimination Was Like A Survivor Blindside
Wow talk about a blindside with Ben who was favourite to win leaving the house. It was totally unexpected and just as surprising was Tahan topping the saved votes with 32.1 percent.Though her edit has been pretty good the past week except the constant talk from Mikkayla and Jade about what a bitch she is.
But Ben only receiving 16.2 percent of the vote and it was close. Ed was next lowest with 16.9 percent, Drew on 17 percent and Tim on 17.8 percent.
Was it people thinking he was safe this week so sending their votes to other people like Tahan hoping that Ed or another would be voted out. Or is that just too complex a reason when maybe the Ben fans are not the ones who are voting. No use being popular if they are not going spend a bit of coin on your behalf.
Also was Tim’s vote low because again people thought he was safe and did not bother voting? Or are Ed’s cards magically working and people are losing the love of the larrikin?
Though percentages can change week to week depending who is up I predict that Tahan’s won’t be nearly as high next week, and Tim if nominated he will get the majority of the save votes and probably by a fairly big margin.
The Jade and Ed romance continues for another week or two as the chances are an intruder will get the boot over the coming weeks.
The young fogey Ben received a roaring reception from the live audience and Ben was happy to glad handle the crowd. He also received a standing ovation. It was interesting they did not show who had nominated him like they have the other weeks and it was only later in the interview that Sonia told him that it was Jade and Drew who nominated him for strategic reasons. Maybe they thought Ben was too fragile. Sonia also did not talk about how Ben kept saying how he had nothing outside of the house.
Sonia did ask him about the stand up comedy and he just said he was Ben and that he was a flight attendant. Not sure why he did not just own it, even if the comedy was a one off.
Ben was the only neutral housemate and it appears there is still a divide even though Tim reckons there are no groups. Jade, Ed and Mikkayla hang out the most and Tahan, Drew, Tim and Boogs are pretty tight knit This latter group managed to piss the other three off when they made pizza for a snack.
The housemates had failed the weekly shopping task so were only on rations. When Tim popped his head into the gold bedroom to ask the two girls and Ed if they wanted some. Jade and Mikkayla said they should not be doing that as they were on rations. It was mildly amusing when later Jade muttered she was hungry. Mikkayla seems to have a proprietorship over the kitchen.
The Tim and Boogs plot line is being stirred up and you do wonder if Tim is creating a fauxmance for a plot line or if he is just incredibly sexually frustrated. Of course he could genuinely like her and of all the couples in the house they do seem to be the best suited.
Did Mikkayla discuss whether she was interested in Tim with Boogs in the Presidential suite? It seemed all Mikkayla and Boogs talked about was food. Mikkayla is getting the she eats a lot edit from Big Brother.
Are you in shock about Ben’s eviction? What is your theory – voter apathy or were viewers just over him?
