Ok so I didn’t watch last night so I am not totally apprised of the BB house situation but here is my rundown on the housemates:
Amanda: As one half of Samanda (AKA the twins), Amanda is sweet, funny, girlie, and I secretly hope playing a clever game. Amanda is apparently the more dominant of the two. Recently dealt with dressing as a hotdog with great aplomb.
EVICTED!! Billi: I He was far too involved with his hair. Which looks shit. He also hated Charley which was most entertaining but he was a bit of a slimey toad. Good riddance.
Brian: He is brilliant. An Essex boy and praaaaaad of it! He seems to be genuinely a sweet guy. I hope he really he isn’t as dumb as he makes out. That would make me sad.
Carole: I really liked Carole to start with – as a political activist with a great sense of humour she promised to be an interesting housemate… shame she has ended up doing all the housework in a strangely subservient role. She has a propensity for moaning.
Chanelle – sweet and pretty. Perhaps not as interested in Ziggy as he is in her. Seems to have Charley pegged. Needs to not be so girlie all the time. Up for eviction this week – I think the housemates are bored of the Chiggy couple thing and also she has been a bit moany about being ill. I do like her though so I hope she stays.
Charley: Hateful, obnoxious, vile human being who probably has a vunerable side with major self confidence issues but she is too horrible for me to care. Her greatest skill is telling other people off for doing the exact thing that makes her to annoying. The classic ‘turn a situation around’ thing is used in the house so much it makes my eyes want to bleed.
BOOTED! Emily: Thrown out of the house for using the n word, she thinks she is a street-wise player. In fat, she is an entitled, spoilt brat. She thinks she is so much better than anyone else. She also thinks that she has discovered indie music. Silly bitch.
Gerry: Adorable, Greek and very intelligent. He can throw the odd tantrum but on the whole, he’s a likeable man.
WALKED!! Jonathan: A rich businessman who analyses his housemates, which is interesting and a good thing but comes across as a bit of a sleaze and openly talks about how much money he has. British people hate that. He walked after learning his grandmother died – sad to see him go.
Laura: A favourite on entering the house, she has really gone down in my view. Negative, bitchy and generally a pain in the arse. Up for eviction this week – I hope she goes, poisonous cow.
WALKED! Lesley: I loved Leslie before she walked. Super intelligent and wise, she was an asset to the all-girl young house. Superb sense of humour but unable to tolerate the conditions in the house.
Liam: Heartbreaker in the making, Liam seems like a nice lad who knows how good looking he is. Nikki already seems to have taken a shine but I think she has her work cut out for him. Need to see more of him to make a proper assessment. That was not meant to sound lascivious. He has already won £100,000 and won the nation’s heart by syaing he will spent it on his family. He is a bit of a tease – I hope he doesn’t turn out to be a loverat.
Nicky: As one of the older girls (she is 28) she found herself in the position of matron, telling the girls not to eat all the food and generally coming across as a bit of a bore which I suspect is far from the truth. She tries to resolve conflict without losing her temper but sometimes strays too far into passive aggressive land. Now the new housemates have arrived, she seems to have chilled out. Clearly took a shine to Liam but has already been pretty much rebuffed. When she is having fun, a great housemate. Otherwise, not much value.
Sam: The weaker half of Samanda, she is also girlie, pink-loving and seemingly superficial. Clearly has a brain and shows signs of being sensible beneath the eye-shadow.
EVICTED!! Seany: I thought he was going to be dreadful. He did not make a good first impression but has grown on me since. I was surprised that he was nominated for eviction by his housemates (who were apparently sick of the pranks) and even more surprised when he was evicted. He seemed genuinely distraught to leave. Poor lamb.
EVICTED! Shabnam: A desperate media whore wannabe. Good riddance.
Tracey: A 38 year old ‘cheesy quaver’ (i.e. raver). Works as a cleaner and thinks it is a noble job which I kinda admire. Seems very zen and her catchphrase ‘deal with it’ shows her strength. She seems the only housemate genuinely honoured to be picked to be in the house. Everyone else seems to just accept they have been chosen. Has the potential to be rude and boring, though. Still on the fence about her, to be honest.
Ziggy: Dealt with the all-girl situation admirably but is now showing signs of insecurity as all the lads fancy his girl. This could get old very quickly.
