Big Brother – Some Poison Given Along With Some Sugar

Tim got very lucky last night when it came to the footage Big Brother showed of him. Each housemate was shown a trick and treat, that is the good and the bad of their time in the house. He was not shown as conniving and manipulating as he has been. The worst bit was when he was shown nominating Drew, saying that maybe it was time he went as a solo act. This was balanced out later by Tim saying how he valued Drew’s friendship. It did show how he contrived to get Tully eliminated. Whether he did or whether it was because Tully managed to come across as so abrasive.

Drew’s footage showed that he played housemates off against each other. Like the time Mikkayla said something nasty about Heidi  and Drew immediately tattled.

Tahan’s showed her bitchy/nasty side but props to her she just laughed about it and did not look too concerned. Jade’s was a tad dull but did show the time she said would not care if Tahan was dead. Jade then apologised to Tahan for it. Not sure she needed too as Tahan had let rip about Jade in her package as well. Tahan also received a message from her mum and it was good to see that she mentioned the indigenous connection and the fact they are not from a privileged background.

Jade who sat at the end of the table did look  a bit left out as the other four are such good mates.

Jade finally saw that Ed had nominated her. Drew and Tim exploded bringing up the fact that they had been put through a lecture that week by Ed saying you don’t nominate your friends. Jade was trying to defend him saying they weren’t together then. They were. OK not sleeping in the same everynight but a fair few party pashes had occurred before he flicked her the two points.

It also must have hurt Jade when Drew was shown talking about how all her stories were like fingers being drawn down a chalk board.

Ed’s farewell video was more like a character reference for Jade rather then a heartfelt emotional speech. Looking at footage of Ed and Jade walking out of the compound again showed Ed walking about a metre apart from her. The body language as usual said it all. Drew’s face as the farewell video was shown was priceless.

Jade then told the other housemates she had put a family precious bracelet in his luggage. As Boogs said “That is practically a marriage proposal”. Boog’s trick or treat package was fairly mild as she has not been there long enough to get into major bitching. Boog’s should have been in the house from the start instead of Heidi and she would have given the prize money are real shake.

Tim in his treat package also received a message from Bindi Irwin and she said come and visit Australia Zoo. Seriously I know Tim presents himself as Peter Pan but having a girl crush on a 15 year old when you are 29 years old is actually not something that should be joked about.

However it does not look like it will harm  as he received a lot of footage again last night, and he showed that he is very very good at reading people. This could be seen when he was showing the housemates the rocks he had picked for people. He had a smooth perfect stone for Ed and said “there is nothing special about it”.

Remember though that the ‘fun people’ were four, and the ‘boring nice one’ was only one. So those numbers were skewed, and now that two fun people are gone, their votes will be split between T and T, increasing their numbers by at least 50%. I think Jade’s vote percentage will be way down on Wednesday.

I bet before he gets to that Carole he would prefer to go off with his mates for a few beers but what’s the bet he won’t be able to get rid of Tully now she’s got hold of him.

3 Carole { 11.04.13 at 9:46 pm }

Yeah, they didn’t show all the bullshit, the fighting and Tully screaming at him like a shrew. Only all the lovey dovey stuff.

4 Miss Mars { 11.04.13 at 9:53 pm }

Really surprised by the close percentages as well, not what I was expecting at all. Jade could actually be in with a chance, whether or not everyone agrees with the label, they’re giving her the ‘nice girl’ edit right now, and given that unlike Tim and Tahan she’s never really been ‘competitive’ or really thought she could win… Who knows? I don’t think Boog and Drew fans will necessarily give votes to Tim and Tahan, and after showing how close the top three are I think they’ve guaranteed an influx of votes over the next two days. Anyway, as usual I honestly don’t care enough to spend money on the outcome, but it’ll be interesting to see what happens on Wednesday.

5 Andrea { 11.04.13 at 10:00 pm }

Same here Miss Mars, not wasting money voting.
Did you hear Tahan’s boyfriend say that he only spends a few hundred on votes every week?
And poor Mr Clooney, neither Boog or Drew so much as patted him goodbye, they all ignored him as he followed them hopefully begging for attention.
I hope he goes tomorrow night to a good home.
Good on Jade for making it through.

All the betting shops got it right. Interesting to see what they say tomorrow regarding final 3.
Oh dear, cringing at the end…. Drew didn’t look all that comfortable with the “surprise” reunion, IMO. Maybe just shocked? From the footage aired tonight, Tim’s chance of winning has probably slipped. I guess BB would foot the bill to replace any damage to personal items?
The show went over and my IQ cut out. I missed anything after Sonia, Drew and Tully stood up, waving at crowd. Maybe only credits?

7 brain dead dave { 11.04.13 at 10:05 pm }

I don’t necessarily accept that those are the true percentages since the producers are under no obligation to disclose those to the public.

Of course the producers are going to say it’s close because they want a lot of people to vote. That’s easier to see through than Sonia’s dress tonight.

RR’s poll got it right and there are significant differences between the percentages of Tim, Tahan and Jade. We know how many people voted and who for.

I think only credits , Liberty. It’ll be on Go! again later.

Can I cringe with you please Liberty?
I felt uncomfortable for Drew tonight. Tully looked like she was taking over Drew’s time on stage. As usual it was all about her.

9 mittens { 11.04.13 at 10:20 pm }

I can’t read comments yet, but I just saw Drew go straight to Boog and ruin Tim’s garlic prank retaliation after Boogie nose put moisturizer in Tim’s Bed. SHUT UP DREW. YOU ARE SUCH A SQUEELER. Has he taken over from Mikkayla? Just when I thought Drew had crawled out from under his Rock.

10 Sandii { 11.04.13 at 10:22 pm }

Tully reminded me when Maddie had to kiss the giant octopus in a challenge. She reminded me of the octopus not Maddie

11 Andrea { 11.04.13 at 10:29 pm }

We get force fed Tully again. She was shaking and crying the minute she knew Drew’s time was up.
Poor Drew, he’s in for a torrid time!

12 Lizzie { 11.04.13 at 10:30 pm }

Expect to hear some goss tomorrow about Tully spitting the dummy tonight due to lack of attention, girls hitting on Drew and other random stuff.

Andrea, she was convulsing! lol

13 LW { 11.04.13 at 10:34 pm }

I think Tully is expecting tonight to be like that scene in Twilight when Edward and Bella finally get it on…

14 mittens { 11.04.13 at 10:34 pm }

I am going to have to go to the doctors tomorrow because of the damage done to my eardrums. Just had the scene of Boogienose screeching at Tim like some banshee. Pity the poor nagging her future hubby will get. There’ll need to be a quick surrender.

15 all happening { 11.04.13 at 10:40 pm }

I hope Drew’s Mum and Dad get to say hi to their Son before Tully rushes him off.
As Drew said, everything in the house is magnified so wondering if there should have been some breathing space for Drew.

16 mittens { 11.04.13 at 10:41 pm }

It’s all very well to be an accomplice to a prank. But you don’t play both sides and you don’t run and blab.

17 brain dead dave { 11.04.13 at 10:48 pm }

Yeah, Boog is going to be a nagging machine for sure. God gave her a voice to go with it, too. Like listening to a lawn mower on Sunday morning.

Boog had an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction on the gang plank to obscurity that was pixellated here.

The boog has finally been picked.

18 mittens { 11.04.13 at 10:48 pm }

AT this stage (no one evicted here yet), I am thinking Drew’s strategy is that he is actually gunning for Tim and using Boog to do his dirty work.

19 Lizzie { 11.04.13 at 10:56 pm }

Good analogy Sandii @260 a suffocating octopus..

20 brain dead dave { 11.04.13 at 11:00 pm }

It’s a good visual analogy, agreed. However, your average Octopus is very intelligent ,whereas Tully….
