The Big Bother Ends
Series Nine of Big Brother has been underwhelming to say the least. We’ve had our fair share of arguments and outbursts, as well as inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour. However, ultimately, nothing that exciting really happened. Now the time has come to vote for your favourite. It begs the question: Do you care who wins? I’ve certainly loathed many of the housemates this year and wanted them out, but it’s different now that you have to actually vote for your favourite. There’s no-one that stands out for me. There seems to be an absence of genuinely funny, charismatic people; and an abundance of fame-hungry two-faced wannabes! I am amazed that some of them stayed in the house for so long. Firstly you have Rex, the arrogant bully who seems to have won over the housemates’ affection despite not actually being very nice to them! Then there’s Mohammed, who only got evicted last night. He really did nothing apart from follow Rex and Darnell around and EAT. How come they’ve escaped previous evictions?
So who will you vote for? Going by previous series, it would seem the British public likes to go for the underdog. The working class tradesman (Craig Phillips), the gay guy (Brian Dowling), the guy with Tourettes (Pete Bennett), or the transsexual (Nadia Almada). Hence, it’s not really a surprise that the blind Scotsman, Mikey Hughes, is favourite to win. Is he a worthy winner? One would think, based on this theory, that Darnell would also be a favourite, being an albino and all…but he seems to have shot himself in the foot lately with his constant whingeing and moaning about the sorry state of his life. I can’t take anymore self-deprecation from him! Then you have Sara, who endeared herself to the public by becoming victim to Rex and Darnell’s bullying. But now she’s returned to her previous ways, pouring all her questionable affections onto a poor unsuspecting man in the form of Darnell (previously Stuart). I smell a fake.
One thing is certain, whoever does win on Friday, I don’t think I will care. If it’s come to this, maybe we should follow Aussie Big Brother and call it a day?
