I like Shievonne, Luke S, Adam, Luke A, and Sara the most so far, and I'm not a fan of Chris at all. He's extremely insecure about his body and voice and his constant need to remind everyone he's a bailiff and has been held hostage is getting annoying.
Lydia annoyed me the first few days (and still does) but the fact that she has single handedly caused nearly every argument in the house is fun to watch. She's quite the shit-stirrer and it makes it entertaining. She has also reached BBUS Russell levels of paranoia in less than a week, which is impressive.
I felt a bit bad for Deana, but you'd think she'd be a bit more understanding to Becky's secret mission seeing as how she herself was put in a shitty position on Day 1 with her own secret mission.
The fight over the sausages was pretty funny to watch because everyone was drunk and emotional and it's hard not to laugh when people are arguing while their faces are covered in smeared makeup (not sure what look they were going for there). Nominations were today, and it looks like

Initially I was okay with the whole talk about nominations, but now I can see why people feel it takes away from the show. Lydia is an awful person, turning against the only people who can even stand to talk to her. First she nominates Deana, and then she says she plans to nominate Adam in the future. Adam, the same person who she chose as her favorite houseguest less than a week before. The nominations talk now dominates the episodes, and I feel there aren't as many laughs as last year because everyone is so busy plotting.
I feel like Benedict is going to go because the show definitely seems to be portraying him as very condescending, while Lauren is portrayed as somewhat of a victim. However, I can see what people are saying because she definitely needs constant confirmation that she's a good person. It probably gets tiring having to consistently console her and bring her back up.

Yeah, someone mentioned how they missed when they were caught talking about nominations and they would then Big Brother would repeat the conversation to the whole house. I miss it too.

Forgot to say that I wanted to see Adam's date with Shievonne WHILE HE WAS WEARING HIS MASSIVE HANDS. Missed opportunity, Big Bruv. (Speaking of, Becky seems to be trying to replicate Alex's airhead personality from last series.)

To be honest, I don't think Benedict is doing himself any favours. How he manages to sound so self-righteous and take the moral high ground when talking about masturbating in the shower, I don't know, but he came across incredibly condescending and a bit of a twerp really. Lauren seems very mopey and victimised. Her instant reaction of tears and 'why don't girls ever LIKE me?' as if the whole world is against her must be quite draining to be around. I hope grows out of it.
One of the reasons I find BB difficult to watch is the amount of bitching and talk of nominations. I can't keep up with the different cliques and who's telling who about nominations. Can no one keep a secret? They all run their mouths to whoever they are sitting next to!
Also Lydia is a shit-stirrer and only now they are cottoning on? Man, they are dumb. Or maybe they think she's a useful ally for now. Deanna comes across quite thick to me. She's a pretty face and I'm sure I've seen her in some Asian clothing catalogues but I'm not sure all the lights are switched on in there.

I'm beginning to really dislike Scott, especially after finding out that his "bereavement" was actually his sister passing away and he still decided to go back to the game. Ugh.
I have to admit, Benedict's diary room impersonations were spot on and hilarious. Now I kinda want him to stay since Lauren continues to just sit around and mope and hope people will feel sorry for her. She really must be exhausting to be around.
Lydia targeting Shievonne is pure jealousy, because she sees she's one of the more popular housemates. Both she, Adam, and Conor have gone two weeks without being nominated (if you don't count Deana's nomination of Conor) and I feel Lydia is extremely perceptive and has managed to figure out who's nominated who, or just outright asked. She's clearly trying to plant seeds of doubt, and let's hope it comes back to bite her. Fortunately, Deana's not the brightest bulb so nothing will probably come of it.

Yay: Sara (but get her away from the clique), Lydia (she seems smart - and hates practically everybody), Lauren, Luke A, Deana
Meh: Adam, Shievonne, Caroline, Becky
Ugh: Conor, Arron, Luke S, Ashleigh...Those four are horrendous, and I'm surprised that Big Brother hasn't intervened in regards to the bullying. It's even worse than back in the Halfwit-days! They are really mean and spiteful!

Something needs to be done about Conor. Discussing how much you want to punch and sexually assault another housemate shouldn't be let go with a simple "hey, you know that's inappropriate, right?" warning.
Agreed. Geez, the voice of BB needs to toughen up and read the riot act to that bozo. Same for Arron who was utterly contemptuous of BB and didn't think he was in the wrong at all. Prick. On BBBOTS, they said Conor spent a long time in the diary room talking it over with BB but did the penny actually drop? I'm not sure.

They are horrid but I think Ashleigh did speak up for Deanna after the eating task and said not to blame the entire task on her. She sounded like the lone voice of sanity in that moment. I think Caroline is far worse. A nasty, mean spiteful bitch.
If the rest of the group of Luke A et al are going to be picked off, it's going to be really dull and predictable. Unless the main group turn on each other and implode.

I love that they tried to reason with Arron using child's logic ("You have a lot of friends, but imagine if you didn't have a lot of friends - how would you feel?"), and he STILL didn't quite get it!!

I don't understand why Deana is so hated. She seems pretty inoffensive to me so I don't understand how they can get so worked up over her.
I think the only people I still like are Sara, Lauren, Luke A, and Adam (although I can see how some of his comments toward women could be seen as a bit inappropriate). Ashleigh's jealousy of Lauren is unbelievable. From what I've seen Lauren's done nothing to her other than be pretty and get along with the boys.
So bummed Benedict went. I did find him to be a little patronizing, but I think he brought some order to the house. Now with him gone they're all like a bunch of kids hopped up on sugar whose parents aren't around.

I love Lydia to bits though. She's just so clueless as to how to even play this game. The girl's just angry at everyone! I don't think she'll beat Deana in the voting this week, but she's fun to watch. She's made to lose this game and she feels like she's winning because the public love underdogs.

Here, BB seemed to me to join in with the misogynous baiting of Deana – though under the type of guise which would doubtless be dismissed by many as “harmless banter”. “Conor doesn’t mince his words,” they commented at the time of his outburst, seeming almost approving. More sinisterly, when a distraught Deana sought a hug from another housemate, they then tweeted, “Yup, a good mounting. That’s all she needed.”

It seems as if the people I like are outnumbered by the "popular" crowd and I'm afraid they're going to be picked off one by one. Deana will probably be up for nomination again, although Becky doesn't seem to be making any friends so she's a possibility I'm okay with.
I loved seeing Lauren pick Luke S. for the cooking task just to see Ashleigh nearly explode trying to cover up her jealousy. I very much wanted her to pick Luke S. for her date just to piss Ashleigh off. By the way, Becky attacking the food after the task was over like she hadn't eaten in days was pretty rude. What if other people wanted to sample the dishes? She's a bit sloppy and inconsiderate. Although it seems unlikely, I would love it if Becky, Ashleigh, Conor, or Caroline were the next to go.

This could be an interesting week, especially since BOTS has hinted at a twist that may be used but isn't a sure thing.
