Big Brother UK
So its Tuesday and I’m watching Monday’s house action …. Siavash is such a lovely guy! What is going on ….
When this year’s Big Brother started I was actually tempted in taking my newly discovered blogging skills and starting a (nother) new blog from Day 1 at Elstree …
My retisense … well it turns out I’ve not watched the programme for a few years (or so Elida – one of my gorgeous nieces informs me – I could have sworn it was only 2-yrs) but it turns out that Pete Bennett won in 2006 and that was the last time! I tend to watch the first night and then the last (night.) and if the vibe doesn’t click then that’s it.
But getting back to the Evictions … Marcus or Noirin … A difficult choice! I’m usually clear … and last week (although nulunvoid) I voted for Marcus. But things have moved on (as ever) since then.
Marcus to go
Marcus should leave for being manipulative, acting like a child and he likes his own way. He has a knack of reframing every argument put to him … to his own ends and is a poor listener most of the time. He likes to point score rather than seek move a discussion forwards. towards a solution through compromise. He revels in self-pity and is coming across as someone with quite low self-esteem which acts out through his superiority complex.
Noirin to go
But similarly Noirin should leave for being needy. She yearns to be the centre of attention. and wants to control what happens in the house. And as much as ‘it takes two to tango’ she tends not to take any responsibility for her actions, instead washing her hands of any situation and showing little sensitivity for any prospective partner, despite her assertion that she cares too much!
I’m torn. I think if Marcus goes the ‘real’ Noirin might emerge, but its not 100% certain that she would change in any way at all, so how would the viewer benefit? If Noirin goes then the ‘real’ Marcus will probably emerge, as he’s moping around like a love-sick puppy at the moment and once Noirin is out he will relax a bit. And wouldn’t the house be a safer environment if Noirin leaves? And looking further on down the road, Bea would then have carte-blanche in running the show, which might result in some real romance, between her and Siavash (or maybe Marcus – naaah – that’d be too silly).
Siavash to win
Despite the rumors I don’t think Siavash was in a relationship before entering the house, it was his defense mechanism, where someone has a need to create such a devise (and similarly with Noirin and her ex) they know they fall easily. And Siavash has no problems in connecting with his softer side, just one of the things the nation loves about him, perhaps.
Who will you vote out this week? I think I’ve made my decision! Your thoughts are welcome (as ever) on the topic …
