The new series of Big Brother is at the halfway point in the UK and already it has been another great season so far. Sadly the very entertaining and lovely Arthur Fulford left the house early on in the series. I loved him. He was a great housemate. Thanks for the memories Arthur!
So who are my current favourite six in the BB house?
BB superfan, nerd and all-round lovely guy, Raph is my winner. He’s very interesting and an excellent housemate. He had Joe spot on and when he called Joe out about him calling him a prick it was a great moment. Everytime he had a problem with Joe he has called him out in that wonderful, diplomatic way of his and it’s great viewing. He was also a great friend to Arthur which was lovely. His friendships with Chanelle, Andrew and Isabelle are also lovely and very entertaining to watch. Super intelligent and down-earth, I really hope he wins. He reminds me of my late father: gentle, kind, caring and always there for people and also very strong and not scared to confront people when they annoy him. A complete gentleman and that’s only reinforced even more by Lotan (anything but a gentleman) slagging him off to get 15 more minutes of fame.
Andrew is my favourite of the second chance housemates. It’s nice to see a Celt finally been a good housemate in this series. He seems lovely and when he took Joe on in the garden, I loved him. Good on you Andrew! His friendship with Raph is lovely to watch although I feel sorry for the two of them with the unrequitted love situation. I hope Andrew wins the £15,000.
Oh Hurricane Sue. I love her. She’s my second favourite of the second chance housemates. Her observations are excellent and she’s not scared to state how she feels about the other housemates which is wonderful. She seems very direct but also very nice. When the public had a choice to put in either Andrew or Sue on launch night, why on earth did they pick Tom? Wonders never cease.
Isabelle is great. She seems a really cool girl. The way she handled the situation with Lotan was brilliant. She’s always stood her ground in the house and is always up for a laugh. She’s also very calm. The way she stayed calm in the situation with Lotan was very admirable. I know I probably wouldn’t have been that calm! Her friendships with Chanelle, Raph and Andrew are lovely to watch too.
In the earlier shows of the series, Deboragh, and her sister Hannah, weren’t been shown much and thus I hadn’t really an opinion on either of them either way. But when they came into it, they really did come into it and I liked them both very much. When Deboragh took on Rebecca after Hannah’s argument with Lotan I totally agreed with her. She and Hannah’s loyalty to each other is lovely to watch. They really look out for each other and because I’m very close to my sister too it warms my heart. Deboragh also stood up for her sister on fight night and received a warning. But look she has nothing to be ashamed about. What other way would you react in defending your sister? One thing I am getting tired of is the word “aggressive” been used in connection with Deboragh and Hannah. I personally don’t find them to be. But what really annoys me about the use of that word about Hannah and Deboragh is that the same people who say that about the girls when they get mad don’t say “aggessive” about white housemates when they get mad. In other words, do it both ways or neither way. We’ve gone beyond those ignorant old stereotypes or so I thought. I also love watching Deboragh’s friendship with Raph and of course her possible relationship with Kieran. I think they both like each other and they would be very cute and suited together. Come on Debran!
When Hannah called Lotan out in the argument it was a great moment. Prior to that Sukvinder had told her that Kayleigh had been negative about Deboragh and she handled her emotions well which must have been bubbling up angrily inside. When it’s your sister it’s very hard to keep your emotions back if someone says something negative about them. Both she and Deboragh seem like great girls who are very intelligent and who won’t back down when they know they are in the right. Hannah is a slight bit of a drama queen but I kind of enjoy her been like that. I agree completely with her on the Lotan mouse situation though. He wasn’t a pal of hers and due to that I think it’s obvious that his motivation wasn’t banter. The thing with Ellie spray-tanned like a smurf, I didn’t really believe her but I think she’s a great housemate and I love her relationship with her sister. When Deboragh was going to leave and she stopped her and calmed her down it was a lovely moment. Her friendships with the gang in thorn cottage are also lovely.
