Evictions in the Big Brother house always tend to be a tense and closely fought affair, but never has there been a greater analogy for them than that used by 23 year old Northerner Arron, who compared his nomination against Luton lad Chris to “Mike Tyson vs Lennox Lewis”, it’s a bit of a heavyweight fight”.
As we watched the nominations unfold, a frequent criticism of Arron was his apparent arrogance and inability to cooperate with the rest of the house. This was only too evident tonight as he decided to take the vacant mould of house bad boy, pathetically rebelling against Big Brother as he decided to lie down by the entrance to the house, much to the embarrassment of all the other housemates.
American house mate Adam was also seen to become visibly annoyed with Arron as he repeatedly tried to turn off the lights in the bedroom, a moment which verged on farce as Big Brother continued to turn them back on. The memories of sausage-gate also proved fresh in the memory of Adam, citing it as a key reason when nominating Arron.
Yet, Arron’s irritable behaviour and arrogance seemed to melt away as he confided with Big Brother in the diary room, admitting that he was “Secretly s******g it” about his nomination. He was still unwilling to see how his behaviour might have influenced his nomination, instead believing that the other housemates saw him as “a bit of a threat, its tactical”.
Fellow nominee Chris also viewed Arron as somewhat of a threat repeatedly saying “He’s a male model”. The reasons for Chris’s nomination were varied, with peroxide haired housemate Scott bizarrely reasoning with Big Brother that “he touched me” whilst he was later seen to deliver housemates with the scathing remark that Chris didn’t have “a brain, just empty space”.
We haven’t yet seen a true romance in the house, although the end of the episode enticed viewers as we saw Luke Scrace cosy up to Ashleigh in the Big Brother bedroom, with Luke openly proclaiming “I’ve got one ball that’s massive”. Who said romance was dead?
