Why Chad Johnson Is My Celebrity Big Brother Winner!

 

Chad is my winner of CBB this year. It was a close run thing with Sarah for picking my winner but I like Chad a bit more than Sarah but I like her too. Their relationship has been beautiful to watch. It feels very genuine and they seem to be so at ease with each other. They are like chalk and cheese and yet have so much in common at the same time. A very sweet couple.

Chad has always been there for Sarah when she was facing so much shit in the house. That’s been very sweet to watch. He’s a lovely guy and very loyal. Also his one-liners have been classic. We as viewers have really got to know Chad’s real personality throughout the show. He has went from been thought of by viewers as the ‘player’ to us all seeing that he is a warm-hearted, gentle, nice and down-to-earth lad. I also love how easy-going his manner is and he had Sandi spot-on. I don’t think I could have took the control she had about the kitchen either.

He has did great no matter what happens. He’s the last American among 5 English people and that is a great achievement especially considering that he has been up for eviction every week.

Good luck Chad! 🙂

My Opinion of The BB Finalists!

Well it’s been an awesome few weeks of a show with Celebrity Big Brother. We’ve had ups, downs and romance. But now we are down to the final 6!

Here is my opinion of the remaining finalists in with the chance of been crowned champion tonight …

 

Amelia Lily

Amelia has come across very well and very down-to-earth. She does like Sam and I feel he has used her and that’s not been easy to watch. Didn’t believe that she was been selfless in the task by choosing to let Sarah see her friend instead of seeing her mum but otherwise I like her.

Chad Johnson

Chad is my winner. He is a really lovely guy and his relationship with Sarah has been great to watch. I think it’s very genuine between them and I really hope it works out after for them both. They have been each other’s rock in there. The following is not a reason why I’m for him but I did find out his real first name was Brian and that was my late father’s name so that’s a great added bonus.

Derek Acorah

Derek is a nice man and he has been great in the show. I hope he gets higher than the betting suggests.

Jemma Lucy

I know many people don’t like Jemma but I think she’s a nice girl. I don’t agree with some things she did in the show but I think she is a nice girl and I hope she does well in the final placings. She was also very real in the task when she chose to see her sister instead of letting Derek get a letter from his wife.

Sam Thompson

I’m not Sam’s biggest fan. I think the way he’s treated Amelia hasn’t been very nice. It does feel like he has been using her for airtime and his storyline in the show. That’s how it comes across in any case. Also I didn’t believe he was been selfless in the task letting Helen see her husband instead of seeing his sister.

Sarah Harding

I love Sarah. She has been through the mill in there and has come through with strength. She’s a lovely girl and her relationship with Chad has been lovely to watch. Their relationship has been the highlight of a great season. She’s my runner-up.

Big Brother: 7 Talking Points From the Series!

 

 

And so we have come to my last BB blog post. 7 talking points from the series. There has been many more talking points from the series but that would take all day …

 

Lotan’s Removal

At the beginning Lotan was alright but gradually he seemed to change. By the time he got removed it wasn’t a surprise. Fight night 2 was a major talking point of the series and Lotan was removed the next day after throwing his drink hitting Isabelle, Hannah and Deborah with his drink when Isabelle said he wasn’t a role model for his son. After that all hell broke loose with practically everyone involved:

 

Ellie & Sam

While I think their relationship sent most of us to sleep, their relationship was definitely a talking point from the series:

 

Kieran & Deborah

Kieran and Deborah’s friendship/will-they-won’t-they relationship kept us all gripped including a date, fake proposal, fake wedding and fake divorce:

Raph & Andrew

Raph and Andrew’s unrequited love was a talking point of the series including that awkward moment when Andrew tried to kiss Raph:

 

Raph’s Twerking

It was a very entertaining, funny moment from the show. He smashed it! 🙂

Andrew’s Wax Session

Another talking point. Super cringy but he was very brave. Good on him!

Arthur Just Been Arthur

He may have been only just over a week or so in the house but he made the most of it and became a really memorable housemate:

Thanks for a great series everyone! Roll on CBB! 🙂

 

Six Great Outfits From BB2017!

In my second last BB blog post I will be talking fashion baby! The following is my six favourite outfits from the season …

 

Andrew’s Rock/New Romantics Outfit

Personally I think Andrew had the best dress sense in the house. But I’ve picked his rock/ New Romantics outfit as a highlight:

Ellie’s Teal Dress

Ellie’s teal dress in the house was admired by me, my mum and my sister. She very much got this right. Sadly I couldn’t find a pic of it but I had to mention it.

Sue’s Hippie-Style Dress

Sue has great style. Very oriental and very colourful so it was difficult to pick one outfit but I’ve picked this hippie-style dress below:

 

Hannah & Deborah

Again Hannah and Deborah have many great outfits to choose from but I have chosen their matching gold outfits as a highlight:

Joe’s Black Catwalk-Style Outfit

Joe has great style and I’ve picked this outfit with his eviction outfit a close second:

Savannah’s Eviction Outfit

I loved Savannah’s very stylish eviction outfit below:

 

 

 

 

Big Brother: The Aftermath

Last night Isabelle Warburton was revealed as the new Big Brother winner. Following her win she revealed that she will help raise awareness of mental health conditions as she knows people who have been affected by them.

‘I was thinking [of donating to] something like Mind my brother ran for them in the London Marathon so something along the lines of that would be good. I just think that mental health is pretty neglected because people don’t see it physically, a broken leg is given more attention than something in people’s head. It’s so important to raise awareness. I’d never say I’d suffered from anything severe but I do know people who have.’

As someone who knew someone very close to me who suffered from depression I think this is great and very admirable and I know exactly where she’s coming from. Even in this day and age sadly there is still s stigma which surrounds mental health issues which is very sad and very wrong.

Meanwhile second chance housemate winner Andrew Cruickshanks revealed during his interview with Emma Willis that he would be donating some of his winning money towards helping people living in poverty in Ghana. Again very admirable.

4th place finalist Tom Barber revealed how he left the house days before the final to go to hospital for a brain scan. Speaking about his bromance with fellow contestant Kieran Lee he said,

“I love him to bits, he helped me through a lot. I got ill, I had to go out and have a brain scan and stuff, ear infection, tonsillitis. I was like, ‘I can’t go any longer’ and [Kieran] was like, ‘You’ve got a couple of days left so keep going’. So, massively, I love him.”

3rd place finalist Deborah Agboola told Rylan Clark-Neal that she and Kieran were just friends and has said she would love her own TV show. I’d definitely watch it.

Runner-up Raph Korine said his ideal guy was,

‘Someone interested in culture, someone who is confident. Confidence is important’.

Raph added that ‘a nice smile’ would be top of his list when it comes to looks.

Talking of finding love in the future he said,

‘You shouldn’t be looking for love – if it comes to you it comes to you – if you look for it too much you’re focusing on the wrong things.’

Exactly Raph!

Raph also said that he hoped to show the diversity in the gay community.

‘There are many different types of gay people, you don’t have to be a certain way. I came out because I wanted to be comfortable within myself. People expect that I’m straight. I don’t want people to assume things about me.’

Meanwhile it has been reported that contestant Simone Reed was removed from the final after allegedly spitting at Andrew Cruickshanks following his exit from the house.

On a more happy note, contestant Hannah Agboola posted a video on her Twitter page of herself, her sister Deborah and Raph singing and dancing at the aftershow party to Hannah’s theme tune in the house Love, Peace and Harmony. That was fun to watch.

Hope everyone had a fantastic night and thanks to everyone involved for a great show! 🙂

Watch the moment Isabelle won here:

 

Well done Isabelle and all the finalists! 🙂

And well done Raph & Andrew for brilliantly representing the LGBTQ+ community from someone who is also part of the LGBTQ+ community. 🙂

Isabelle Wins Big Brother!

The Big Brother final took place tonight and Isabelle Warburton was crowned the winner. Raph Korine was second followed by Deborah Agboola in 3rd and Tom Barber in 4th with second chance housemate winner Andrew coming out of the house first.

 

 

Well done Isabelle and also well done to Raph who did me proud coming second. Well done to Deborah, Tom and Andrew too.

 

Thank you Raph for representing the LGBTQ+ community, all the nerds, BB fans and all non-English people brilliantly as someone who is all four. Love you Raph. Well done! 🙂

Why Raph Korine Is My BBUK Winner …

 

 

Well the BB final is on it’s way and soon the winner will be crowned. My winner is Raph who I have loved in it from the start. The way things look he might not win but no matter what he is my winner this series. This blog post is why …

 

I loved that when Arthur was been bullied and isolated early on the show Raph didn’t get involved with the bullying and isolation and was a good friend to Arthur. Too many people in life to save their own skins in these situations tend to join the majority and I thought it was a lovely representation of Raph as a person that he didn’t. It was also very brave.

 

I think he has been a very consistent housemate. If people aren’t been themselves they tend to get found out after a while in there and he has never changed. He has a lovely, kind personality which is also very nerdy and shy. And it’s personal taste really but I’m more drawn to like personalities like that. Talking about his personality I must bring up something Rylan said on BBBOTS the other night. Now I love Rylan too but his comment about Raph been “odd” and an “oddball” was disgusting. And I didn’t feel it was meant in a good way even though he tried to backtrack and say it was. Otherwise he wouldn’t have said “I hate to say it …” beforehand. While I have a huge Rylan fan since X Factor I do believe we have to value the diversity of personalities in the world and there is absolutely nothing wrong with been a nerdy, shy guy who is not constantly roaring, cursing and going on about sex all the time. Raph is most certainly not odd or an oddball, he’s just a nice guy on a TV show.

 

I like that he’s a Big Brother fan and even more so that he admitted he is. And I think he genuinely is a Big Brother fan because he’s a member of the This Is Big Brother forum and he has a huge knowledge of the show. I think he was determined to get on the show and fair dues to him he did and is now in the final. Is he a gameplayer? Of course he is, he’s in a gameshow. I wouldn’t expect him to admit he was because for some reason gameplaying is a dirty word in Big Brother even though it is a game. But of course he is but they all are and I wouldn’t expect any of them to be anything else in a gameshow. But a gameplayer doesn’t mean that someone isn’t a nice person.

 

I like that Raph doesn’t isolate anyone and that he always stands up for himself but also doesn’t make a big scene out of it for TV. His friendships have been great to watch in there with Chanelle, Deborah, Hannah, Sukhvinder, Imran and in the latter part Tom and his diary rooms have been great viewing as has his attempted matchmaking between Deborah and Kieran. He’s just an all-round nice lad and is my winner. But whatever happens he has done great regardless.
