Well on paper it should have been a disaster..

but for me it's turned out to be a decent series

Some early tension,a few twists,a decent baddie and a closeish
finish.

They keep trying to aim it at the young, but most gave up on the show ages ago and will even more after tonights results.
They should go down the American BB route and make it more of a tactical game show. With more Aarons, who can be as big as koonts as they like.

Enjoyed this BB from a betting and a learning point of view. the evictions and the o/r meant I did just fine profit wise. However looking back I had all the info to have won huge on this. Some may recall me starting a thread about Harry flip flopping with aaron. There was method in my madness. My stats showed harry very popular with the GBP. I think this was the case. i then assumed that this would be reflected in the actual votes. When Harry was evicted first out of four (iirc) this should have told me that this was going to be a forums decision as the GBP just weren't interested enough to vote. Armed with this I should have immediately switched to aaron more than I did.  never mind. for once I did not have to pay to learn.
