Big Brother: It’s not you, it’s thing

siavash-big-brotherDon’t do it, Siavash! Last night we saw the former official coolest man in Big Brother history apparently joining the long line of admirers of that lust magnet, Noirin Kelly. They had one of those evasive “Don’t talk about that or you’ll get into trouble” conversations which are a Noirin speciality – they ensure that the admirer is given enough encouragement to keep on admiring, but not enough so she’ll actually have to commit herself to anything. Sree was the first to get this treatment, and of course Marcus has been grappling with it for some time, semi-content to get the crumbs from Noirin’s table. Angel and Halfwit have also fallen by the wayside, and Tom gave up at the first hurdle.

I can only conclude that Noirin loves the drama of having people hankering after her, but I think Siavash could have more to lose than her other admirers. For one thing, he’s often mentioned having a girlfriend “on the outside” (though “the outside” becomes an ever-shadier place the longer people stay in the confines of the house), so messing about with Noirin may not go down well with the GBP. He’s currently still hovering near the top as far as being a favourite to win the show is concerned, and I don’t think becoming Noirin’s latest poodle will do him any favours.

Big Brother: Rodrigo gets cross!

rodrigo-big-brotherThis year’s Favourite To Win (though I might put a side bet on Charlie) has been a bit quiet generally. Content to sit back with a happy smile and learn the intricacies of British life (crisp butties), Rodrigo has been fairly low key so far.

But when Noirin decided that Angel ought to do the washing up, at midnight, on what was generally (and accurately) agreed to be Angel’s last night in the house, Rodrigo decided it was no more Mr Nice Guy. “Is meednight!” he protested. Washing up at meednight is just plain wrong, but he knew that Noirin was just being a stirrer and a troublemaker. It’s often the quiet ones who sit back and observe who really know what’s going on, and it’s time someone saw through the manipulative bitch. And bless him, Rodrigo stood his ground and argued his corner until Marcus had finished the washing up and it was a moot point anyway.

Earlier on, Charlie had told Rodrigo about a dream he’d had. He’d been having sex with Kris-with-a-K while Rodrigo filmed them. The boy from Brazil was deeply affronted.  If he wanted to film something, he said he’d film something pretty like the garden, adding with the falling intonation that makes everything he says sound like poetry: “I don’t need to feelm your sex.”

So that’s Charlie told. That’s Noirin told. Rodrigo might be boyishly cute, but he’s not taking any nonsense.

Big Brother: Dark Angel

angel-mckenzie

So the two most interesting, and rather Dickensian, characters in the house are up for eviction. I feel most sorry for Pip, AKA Halfwit. Nominated for not hating Angel, which put the nail in his coffin from influential Lisa.

Angel will be the one to go I think. Part Fagin, part Artful Dodger, she made the fatal error of falling in love with Little Miss Perfect and making public her disappointment that Noirin can and will eat cake. Clearly no-one in the house (especially ‘Angel obviously really fancies me’ Halfwit) has cottoned on to where this came from, ie Angel’s monumental crush on Noirin. Haven’t we all said the most stupid thing possible to the person we fancy? And much as I loathe our national sport of hypocritical bullying over women and weight, Angel’s misjudged comments didn’t offend me. She’s obviously got such huge issues about bodies in general including her own, it seemed more weird than offensive. And Noirin has not got a fragile ego, she admitted herself before she came in that she “gets hit on fifty times a night”. She’ll cope. But Angel won’t be allowed to get away with calling Noirin a pregnant-looking lard arse, which is a shame because I would so love to see Marcus fulfilling his promise to put his dick through the mangle if she doesn’t. Though in fairness, I like how Marcus behaved with both Halfwit and Angel after the nominations were announced. I’m beginning to wonder if Marcus might drop the unconvincing ‘cool’ act and develop into less of an arse himself. He has the makings of a better man.

The best thing was the background male hair salon activity- Charlie’s follicular transformation of Sree into a man with a ginger fox on his head. It looks like a Ken Dodd tickle stick. Charlie could not have better avenged Sree’s nasty attempt at a faux power play seduction of him a few days ago, but being Charlie, he wasn’t even aiming for that, which makes it even better.

Big Brother: Halfwit or Angel? You decide

halwit-angelI enjoyed the speed-nominating last night. It saved all that “ooh, I hate nominating, me,” business. As did the absence of Charlie.

I wonder how the absence of Charlie affected the outcome? I doubt he’d have voted for Halfwit, as he seems to quite like him. He’d probably have gone for Sree, and then we’d have had a three horse race this week (I think – need to check my figures) and, come Friday, Sree would have been back on the bus back to his “very good university,” Hatfield Poly.

As it is, we face the prospect of one of two of the most interesting characters in this year’s BB biting the dust.  I hope it isn’t Halfwit. His only crimes have been making a “mm mmm mmmm” noise when he eats and telling Dogface she can’t sing (she can’t). Whereas Angel has apparently been secretly making off with cider and hairbrushes, and, worse still, has been telling the other female housemates that they’re fat.

I wonder if she thinks that making Noirin insecure about her body will make her beg Angel for a bit of extra early morning physical jerks and perhaps the occasional nude swim in the pool? Otherwise knocking someone’s self esteem is hardly the surest route to winning their affection. Or maybe Angel is one of these people who has her finger on the destruct button of any relationship even before it’s started, just in case anyone gets too close to her.

Meanwhile, Marcus was spared being nominated this week by “king” Siavash. He’d pondered letting Halfwit off, but presumably knew that wouldn’t gain him any brownie points from the rest of the group, so he chose Marcus because he’d been the only one who’d passed his section of the Tudor task.

Re Marcus, as Halfwit would say, “it’s a funny one.” I obviously dislike him – he’s sexist, arrogant, belligerent, childish, blah blah blah. But he’s one of those people who makes me feel sad for him. He told Rodrigo that he always pushed himself to do well in everything, and hinted that he didn’t get much support in his early years. Seeing him struggling to play Greensleeves on the recorder, you could see how the risk of failure absolutely terrifies him. He looked like a kid who hasn’t properly prepared his homework being called up in front of the class. After his diary room stint in the Russian task, he couldn’t stop talking about his excellent achievement. Big and ugly though he is, there’s part of him that’s still a little boy wanting parental approval. Possibly more than anyone else in the BB house this year, Marcus has more personally invested in winning; he needs to be loved. He hasn’t a prayer, of course, but them’s the breaks when you sign up for BB.

Big Brother: I kissed Noirin and I liked it

noirin-kelly-bb10Whatever Noirin Kelly has, if she bottled it and sold it she’d be a millionaire in double-quick time. In the Big Brother house, people are falling over themselves to fall in love with Noirin.

The latest is Angel. It apparently wasn’t shown on telly, among all the dirty dancing with Halfwit and so on, but she snogged Noirin – and she liked it. It was too soon to call it love, she confessed in the diary room (video of that here), but it was physical as well as emotional – and also, she felt, reciprocal. Whatever it is, it’s making Angel go a bit quiet. This is Angel’s usual reaction to falling in love, she admitted.

She reckons that Lisa, being a lesbian, has also spotted the chemistry between herself and the damsel from Dublin, and she’s a bit worried about Lisa’s reaction. I’m more interested in Angel’s reaction to those twin sleazebags Marcus and Sree. They think they only have each other to worry about, but they’re total lightweights compared to Angel.

Meanwhile, Halfwit is worrying that Angel fancies him, although he admitted that their kissing the other night would have gone a lot further if they hadn’t been in the BB house. Or not, since Ms McKenzie’s thoughts were apparently elsewhere.

Big Brother: filthy and delicious

angel-mckenzie-2

Watching Angel winding herself lasciviously around Halfwit in her creative interpretation of a ‘birthday dance’ was so profoundly filthy and delicious that it had every housemate goggled-eyed. I’m sure sex with her would be extraordinary. I’m not sure you’d survive the experience, and I can’t help but wonder if it would be worth it even so.

There is something unearthly and fragile about Angel, and I’ve come to rather adore her. She’s so much smarter and more interesting than everyone in the house, it’s as if she’s from another planet rather than continent. I fear she’ll not last long, and not just because of the hunger strike. I see beautiful madness in her, with moments of fleeting and unexpected joy that remind me of glimpsing a kingfisher, especially the graceful unabashed skinny dip. The absolute antithesis of the usual plastic tit and peroxide extension waving we’re used to by the pool. I love the way she made, for an unfeasibly long time, the really annoying mouth-comb noise my brother used to make playing war games whilst the blocked sink water slowly drained. Sree begged her to stop and she ignored him with aplomb: “I’m helping the water go down.” I loved her solo birthday party in the diary room with Russian dolls. Hearing her speak her native language was quite delicious. And when she said in the Diary Room recently that one day she “might paint the Big Brother house with my blood” you knew that housemates could wake to find exactly that.

Big Brother: Charlie spreads some joy

charlie-drummond-bbI’ve changed my opinion about Charlie over the last couple of days. At first I had him down as a generic Geordie charmer, all twinkly eyes and high opinion of himself and his pulling power.

It was the sight of him in spandex leggings with earphones clamped to his head, forehead furrowed in concentration as he attempted to execute some knee bends for the Ole Bamboo task that made me look at him differently. He looked all sweet and funny. And gorgeous legs, too. We also had a glimpse of him in a little pink tutu the other night. Lovely legs, beautiful posture. Very pretty boy.

Last night he was obvously feeling in the mood for love, but unlike Marcus and Sree, he doesn’t convey this by creepily perving over people. He seems to be the rare sort of person for whom sex is a treat, fun for everyone concerned and nothing to do with hang-ups, guilt or power games. He flirted with Angel first, lying on top of her and giving her gentle little kisses on her face and hands, making her laugh (not so easy with Angel). Imagine Marcus doing the same thing – or rather, don’t. You have to have the easy charm and confidence in yourself that Charlie has to get away with that sort of behaviour, but more than that you have to be sensitive to the effect you have on other people.

Having cheered Angel up, Charlie moved on to a spot of flirting with Halfwit. Halfwit said if he was an animal he’d be a cat. Charlie stuck Halfwit’s daft furry hat on his head, and said he’d be a lion. You could see Halfwit run the possible scenarios through his mind, but while he was still pondering the thrill of being pounced on by a cuddly Geordie, Charlie retired happily to bed, his joy-spreading over for the evening.
