Big Brother – A Legendary Move By Tahan

Tonight on Big Brother there appeared to be a geniune moment from Tim. He appeared quite devasted by Ben’s leaving. Even in the diary room where at one point I wondered if he was manipulating the viewer audience saying how he thought Ben would win and he had deserved it. If so he should go into acting as he convinced me. Also it was interesting how he thought that he and Ben would be the last two standing. Tim is reading the game very well indeed.

Tahan was bitching to Drew about how Jade and Mikkayla had put Ben up for nomination previously. She meant swapping him in when they got to choose to save someone when they had won games night. Drew kept a straight face but he had been one of the people that had put him up for nomination last week.

Mikkayla’s super power is the infiltrater she got to watch two housemate nominate and steal two nomination points from them for her to use. The two housemates she chose had to nominate in front of her.  Mikkayla chose Tahan and Boogs. Interesting she chose Boogs I would have thought she might of wanted to have  a look at Tim’s.

This is what went down:

Mikkayla gave Boogs three points as she thinks if she is nominated she wil go as she could be seen as annoying. Tahan was given two points as she  is unworthy of being in the house and is manipulative, deceptive and she can’t be trusted.

Tahan had to nominate in front of Mikkayla and her giving three points to Mikkayla. Now this was a move Tim would not even pull off and boy he will be in awe if he ever sees the scene.  It was one of the legendary nominations ever on Big Brother. Tahan jokingly said at first she was giving her the votes because she was taking two points off her but later said it was strategy. Tahan is going to get some push back from Tahan. She told Mikkayla it was alright to nominate her back. However Mikkayla surprisingly nominated Drew for two points as she said he has been a downer since Tully had left.

Ed nominated Boogs for three points as she is the person he least knew in the house and she is close to Tim. He gave Tim two points as he does not trust him and he does not like his rudeness. He also said in the last few days he has been rude to some women in the house and Ed says I won’t stand for it I think you should never be rude to women. Clearly he did not say anything to Tim at the time. But Ed thinks it is OK to string a girl along and even put them up for nomination.

Drew gets the award for most amusing nomination of the week. He  gave Ed three points as he is so immersed in the game and he has all these conspiracy theories when nothing is happening at all. He equated him to Russell Crowe in A Beautiful Mind. It was even more amusing when Drew was asked by BB if he thought Ed had any cards to play. Drew looked pretty bemused and he said he did not as he was clinging on for dear life. He gave Mikkayla two points as she is the key instigaters who is making the groups in the house and it creates disharmony.

Jade – Boogs for three points and Tahan for two points. She said she was not going to nominate people she had connected with and was not going to do that until she had to. She said she had connected with Maddy and thought she was here for the same reason she was and that was for an amazing experience. She has no connection with Tahan.

Maddy gave Boog for three points because she thinks if she is up against her Boogs might get sent home instead of her. He gave Tim two points as he is playing the game very hard. She knows he is playing games but she is not sure what they are and it makes her feel uneasy.

Tim gave two points to Jade as she has just become Ed and he does not like it. He gave Mikkayla three points as she always thinks the worst of him and she does not like that he is friend with Tahan’s. And she and Ed and Jade are a tight little group and they are boring.

I felt sorry for Boogs having to nominate for the first time with Mikkayla in front of her. She gave Madeline three points as she thinks she is flying under the radar and is showing a diluted version of herself. Mikkayla nominated Drew again for two points as he as changed in a more negative way since the departure of Tully.

Nominations were Boog on 11 points, Mikkayla on eight points, and Tahan on five points.

Yeah Daisy, I thought that Baretta guy was kinda cute all those years ago, but he didn’t age very well, physically and psychologically!

2 Evan { 10.14.13 at 8:29 am }

Should we even rely on Centrebet and Sportsbet to pick the next evictee, as they were both 100% wrong last week?
As Daisy says above, we need to take into account how much loot Ed’s family is spending to keep him in the house, although I have heard too that some otherwise normal Ben fans voted for Drew last week as a tactical move against Ed – if so, it failed miserably, and Ben was the loser(but, he has nearly 100,000 likes for his Facebook page, and he was mobbed at Dreamworld over the weekend).
There is a genuine divide in the house now, excerbated by Ben’s eviction – Tim’s group vs Ed’s group.
I would prefer to hang out with Tim & Drew & Tahan, instead of Jade & Ed & Mikkayla – Tim & his cohorts are at least having fun.
Tim & Mikkayla had some supposedly huge clash over the weekend, which I guess we will see tonight.

3 Carole { 10.14.13 at 8:40 am }

According to Twitter there was a huge fight between Tim & Mikkayla over the weekend. Dying to see what it’s all about, hope it gets shown on tonight’s show.

4 daisy { 10.14.13 at 9:08 am }

It wouldn’t take much to clash with Mikkayla. She shouts in people’s face to force her agenda or opinion. Imagine how bad she is telling off students. Aaaah.

I am voting for Tim and Tahan. I don’t care about the rest.

5 Chrissie { 10.14.13 at 9:58 am }

OMG just read that Tahan’s Facebook had apparently advertised (note – not a direct quote) “call this number now to speak to One Direction” and listed Tahan’s vote to save phone number. No wonder she was streaks ahead. That is so disgusting and misleading :(

6 Evan { 10.14.13 at 10:23 am }

Chrissie: Perhaps both Ed and Tahan should be disqualified, because of their loved ones essentially being able to bribe people on social media to vote for them?
It makes me think that a few people have an unfair advantage over others, according to their family backgrounds or their partners etc(Tahan’s motor racing boyfriend comes to mind).
Ed’s twin brother a few weeks ago was promising girls a date with Ed if they spent $500 on save votes through Facebook for him.
Is Channel 9 even going to investigate any of this?
I smell a rat.

7 Evan { 10.14.13 at 10:24 am }

It kinda put Ben for instance at a disadvantage, his family is hardly wealthy.

8 Lizzie { 10.14.13 at 10:43 am }

Evan @156 Channel 9 or BB wouldn’t give a fig about ethics. It’s business, all about the money. It’s certainly not the BB of old.

9 Evan { 10.14.13 at 10:46 am }

If Ed for instance wins Big Brother, it will have been a victory bought for him by his family.
And you could say the same in regards to Tahan if she wins.
I think people should be winning Big Brother because of their entertainment value or their contribution overall to life in the Big Brother house.

10 Lizzie { 10.14.13 at 11:25 am }

Agree entirely Evan – Ed’s entertainment contribution – zero. Same goes for Jade and Maddie. I don’t know how those people made it through the auditions, except that Ed’s an ex footballer, Jade an ex model and Maddie an ex body builder. Maybe being an ex something impresses BB producers.

11 BBM { 10.14.13 at 11:31 am }

Unless the general public get behind Ed and Tahan, it doesn’t really matter how much their families spend as it would certainly cost more than their entire assets to ensure they win (unless Tahan’s boyfriend is an F1 driver rather than a V8!).

Big Brother isn’t a direct road to riches, the former HMs now on radio/tv have usually had to do a lot of working their way up rather than just being able to say ‘I’m a BB HM”. I read for a former CH 10 season that the amount required for families to spend to ensure a HM won was considerably more than the HM could win and with the vote to save method this would become even harder.

12 brain dead dave { 10.14.13 at 11:36 am }

Ed’s parents allegedly paid Ch 9 off to let him mumble his way through auditions and get a jersey. They allegedly got some drugs from Essendon for Ed to pump his abs up with and bought a speech therapist to get him to say stuff about cards and bombs while rearranging himself.

Note to Ed’s family~ You can’t make champagne from shit.

Ed’s a follower. Never more than third ranked meathead.

13 Evan { 10.14.13 at 12:28 pm }

I think out of the remaining housemates, Tim deserves to win, mostly because he is entertaining and strategic and he is always creating some sort of interesting undercurrent in the house.
Tim offers way more for the average viewer than Ed, unless of course you only view Big Brother to watch a meathead football player wander around shirtless, having his ego stroked by a dumb blonde model(Jade).

14 Chrissie { 10.14.13 at 12:33 pm }

Tim is great because he has openly been strategic from the start so I respect his gameplay. But I also like how he is in to have fun. Where as Ed was underhanded to begin with, in a bully group, always in the gym, but now constantly seems in game mode and honestly doesn’t look like he is having fun at all.

15 brain dead dave { 10.14.13 at 12:45 pm }

Look at the people in the Ed group he’s forced to have fun with~

Mikkayla…who he nominated four weeks running.

Lady Jady…the “bad smell” he can’t get rid of and has nominated and refused to save.

The voiceover dude called Ed an “alpha ” male. From my lounge, it’s an alpha “fail”.

16 Carol (without the e) { 10.14.13 at 1:21 pm }

Evan @ 63 and Chrissie @ 164 you have both said exactly what was in my head. When you look at who is left I really don’t care who the top 3 is… as long as Tim wins!!

He’s been the most entertaining out of all of them.

That wins my vote from here on out… regardless of where votes go to save someone else.

I’m not taking the same chance the Ben supporters did by assuming he will be safe and voting for Mikkayla or someone just to get rid of Ed.

In fact, I’d like to see Ed in the top 3 just to see his face when Tim beats him and he (and his family) realise that all their scheming and bribery hasn’t helped him win.


17 Lizzie { 10.14.13 at 1:25 pm }

It’s my guess that Ed’s time in the house now is torture. He has a permanently pained look on his face, has no sense of humour, has lost his meatheads, only 3 gells as allies, one of which will hopefully go Wednesday. On a live feed image yesterday Jade was kissing him goodnight , his body was rigid as shit,arms by his side. The Ryan Gosling cut-out was more animated. :) :)

18 brain dead dave { 10.14.13 at 1:27 pm }

Ed’s family need to own it that Ed is just a turd with abs.

19 Trent { 10.14.13 at 1:51 pm }

Ali @ Comment 145 – Tahan comments!

I could not agree more. I Don’t get the Tahan love and the apparent “Honest” tag she has been labelled with. She is far from honest.

20 Evan { 10.14.13 at 2:49 pm }

According to Nathan, Tahan regularly was nasty to most of the housemates behind their backs, but none of this is being shown on the Daily Shows.

21 Evan { 10.14.13 at 2:50 pm }

As long as Ed gets evicted before Tim, that will do for me LOL

22 Carol (without the e) { 10.14.13 at 2:59 pm }

Have a look at the very foreboding cover photo that has just been put up on Big Brother’s Facebook page.

Mikkayla and Tim… looks grim!!!

23 Carol (without the e) { 10.14.13 at 3:01 pm }

I’m wondering if Mikkayla has had a go at Tim to impress Ed and the gells??? Just a premonition… so we’ll see how true it might be tonight.

24 Gregarious { 10.14.13 at 4:00 pm }

Lizzie @167: I agree. Ed is now living a tortured existence in the house. He painted himself into a corner by moving into Jade’s bed, and then taking her on that “date”. He’s continually made it quite clear (or as clear as he can through his gormless mumbling) that he didn’t want a relationship. But his actions (and especially these recent gestures) contradict that. So now he can’t distance himself from Jade without looking like the hypercritical jerk that he is!

Poor old Ed! He’s so paranoid about Tim making him look like a “bad person”. But the main HM making him look like a bad person is himself! If his family had any compassion for him, they’d let him leave the house and the awful mess he’s got himself in. It’s a shame he’s better at playing Jade than he is at playing his “cards”.

25 Carol (without the e) { 10.14.13 at 4:23 pm }

Watching Ed is a “tortured existence” now. He’s no fun at all and I really can’t imagine what kind of person votes for him. Dumb blondes with hopes of hooking up with him by spending heaps on voting to save… or family/friends.

Can’t see him winning with that demographic.

Surely anyone that has liked him has to be asking themselves what kind of person is he to do what he’s doing to Jade. And they can see that it’s a rare thing to get a laugh out of him lately.

You have nailed him Gregarious… he’s stuffed it up for himself… badly!!!

26 Evan { 10.14.13 at 6:00 pm }

Here is why I think Ed and Tahan should be disqualified from the show ASAP and Ben should be reinstated to the competition:

27 Evan { 10.14.13 at 6:01 pm }

Not that this will happen, but it tells you that Ed and Tahan have an unfair advantage over some of the others when it comes to the game itself.
As for tonight, I bet that Mikkayla gets the worst of the editing, which will no doubt contribute to her likely eviction on Wednesday night.

28 brain dead dave { 10.14.13 at 6:49 pm }

Next eviction odds before the fight.

Mikkayla 1.50
Boog 2.50
Tahan 9.00

29 Carole { 10.14.13 at 8:09 pm }

Oh my God, Mikkayla’s getting paranoid about the mug’s with people’s photos on them. Didn’t she watch last year?

30 Carole { 10.14.13 at 8:14 pm }

Ha ha ha, they are going to regret letting Tim & Tahan go.

31 Carole { 10.14.13 at 8:30 pm }

How funny is Tim, ordering everyone about, he is revelling in this!!!!!!!

32 Carole { 10.14.13 at 8:33 pm }

Ha ha, Jade has a bland palate, because she is dating Ed.

33 suckerpunch { 10.14.13 at 8:56 pm }

Tim, although always victorious and self assured, sure did seem rattled by little old Mikkayla (or the cat, fat cat, multiple other nicknames) tonight. Yes he always comes out on top and manipulates and plays the game best, but it was fun watching him squirm a little, at one stage it looked like Tim was actually running for the hills. Will be interesting to see what happens on eviction night after fight night – one of the more interesting episodes of this series. Boring Ed was once again boring and Drew proved once again that he is the biggest girl in the house. Mikkayla may be leaving on Wednesday but not without a fight.

34 Carole { 10.14.13 at 9:04 pm }

Ha ha, Big Brother is cheeky, making Tim & Mikkayla milk the cow.

35 Carole { 10.14.13 at 9:13 pm }

Wow, Tim’s entering dangerous territory now, talking about a woman’s age.

36 Lizzie { 10.14.13 at 9:30 pm }

Poor Drew, he’s starved of stimulating conversation and all he gets is killer frogs,tapeworms and a lame Ed question about bugs. He’s seriously not liking Jade and Ed. Good!

37 Carole { 10.14.13 at 9:34 pm }

Drew is so fucking ignorant. It is true that models have been known to ingest tapeworms to they don’t put on weight. It’s been on the news before. Jade is a model, so she would know about it.

38 brain dead dave { 10.14.13 at 9:37 pm }

Jade thinks they’re living on a “stable” diet. I don’t see any bales of hay in there.

There’ s been a legend that Maria Callas swallowed a tapeworm to stay slim. I read that it was just a myth in her case.

39 daisy { 10.14.13 at 9:50 pm }

My Uncle Willie, my grandfather’s brother had a tape worm once. He also (impressively) had six toes on each foot. Lucky he was a fisherman and didn’t need to wear shoes.

And Grandfather’s mother didn’t wear undies. She was from Sri Lanka.

Back to BB. Mr Ed does have a stable diet.

40 brain dead dave { 10.14.13 at 10:12 pm }

I think there’s only one way out for a tapeworm and it’s not via the ear as Lady Jady suggested.

It’s either “these”/” those” windows not~ “these ones” Mikkayla , English teacher.

41 daisy { 10.14.13 at 10:19 pm }

Mikk had jealous green eyes when she saw Tim and Tahan with megaphones.

42 Chrissie { 10.14.13 at 10:59 pm }

Was a good ep tonight.

43 Teabag { 10.15.13 at 12:53 am }

Since Channel 9 took over BB it’s hard to know what is really going on in the house. After nominations the other night we had a big Boogs promo (how funny and klutzy she is), then tonight we get Mikkayla having a spit tonight. Tahan has been shown in a good/funny light with her role as warden, so I’m guessing BB wants Mikkayla gone. The votes to save also annoy me because it is difficult to evict the people you dislike unless you want to spend a lot of money saving the other nominees. Grr.

44 HowItIs { 10.16.13 at 9:08 pm }

OMG PEOPLE what you are seeing is heavily edited. It’s not even real.
