A bit of Big Brother
Hi everyone! I'll apologise in advance to those who don't spend their time watching crappy reality TV as, I don't think this post will be of much interest to you. But to those who did spend last night glued to their seats, and gasping at the quarter final of Big Brother (like me) this post will be much appreciated. So, Becky's out! I'll say it definitely came as quite a shock; I was sure it would be Ashleigh and her mean little ways leaving the house. But as usual, I seem to have a difference in opinion to the rest of Great Britain. Yes Becky was a rude, ignorant, gossip, who spent most of the time telling the other housemates that they were 'ridiculous', but at least we didn't have to watch her bossing around her supposed 'love interest'. Yes I am referring to Ashleigh. Don't even get me started on Becky's horrific interview that followed the nasty reception she got, when leaving the house. Since she actually got voted in by the public, I sort of expected her to be in the final. I also was pretty sure that Connor would win (me and a few others it seems: Connor is ironically standing in front of a sign saying 'Connor to win!') and maybe he would've done, if he hadn't decided to take £50,000 on condition that he left the house immediately. Of course, him and Luke S both wanted the money, but in the end it came down to who would win the task. What was this task, I hear you cry? Basically, in front of the them were red buzzers and a timer was counting up to £50,000 , the person who hit their buzzer first got the money, and the loser got a guaranteed place in the final. For a moment I thought neither of them would press their buzzers, then I realised that they both thought they wouldn't win, so what was the point in a place in the final? I've got to admit I am ridiculously glad Connor got that money instead of Luke because although I'm not Connors biggest fan, Luke really is up himself. Coming out with the line 'Guys want to be me, girls want to be with me' does tend to put people off you slightly. The reaction from the other housemates was ... well I'm shocked that they didn't realise there would be some sort of twist with the money: year in, year out, the winner never gets the full £100,000. Last night made me think, would I have taken the money and gone or seen it through to the final? What would you have done?
