To be fair Sophie was also sent to the white room tonight, and she has not had a key edit like Kieran or Angela, plus the look on Sophies face when she found out that Kieran was also in the white room was priceless. Smile

That creepy look on Kieran's face as Sophie came in when he was behind the door though, was fully expecting a large knife to be raised.

Im trying to work out whats happening here.

So we know there is a final 3 that will leave the house and the public will vote for the winner of those three.  Right now there is 4 in the house.  So in theory tonight would see them vote out the final one of those 4 to get to the final 3.

But the presence of these two in the white room is a puzzle - how do they factor into final 3?

Unless the program will continue into next week of course and there are more nominations and real evictions.
  Madjikthise Deputy Commissioner

The whole fake evictions thing might be the network's way of tentatively extending the program depending on ratings. If they start dipping they just don't bring the fake evicted people back in, and if ratings stay steady or go up they put them back in.

My personal conspiracy theory.

So Kieren takes the cash and Sophie goes back in

Lol the boys were so pissed....  Will one of them be axed next week?

Last nights Big Brother episode was nothing but a cracker!

The best part was when Kieran left on his own terms with $15,000 cash in the bank by pressing the red button within the minute allocated while he was in the white room.
The worst part was when both Matt and Dan chucked a tantrum in the diary room due to the twists in the game meaning they were now outnumbered by Sophie's return.

On a side note, for the first time this series i was watching this episode with a friend on TV while sleeping over at their house and during the whole first half of the show, all of the other non viewing household members were making non stop small talk in the dining room to the point where i was driven so mad that i was seriously considering walking over and saying "Shhh i am watching Big Brother"!

Reminds me of my dear late father. If he was watching TV and others were having a conversation he would just raise the volume of the TV until it drowned out the conversation!

‘spose it’s all a matter of perspective.

I watch the Bathurst 1000 every year, religiously.
Some peanut, the same peanut, always tries to interrupt.
Unfortunately peanut lives in close proximity, a knock on the door is not uncommon. So ignoring the phone isn’t entirely effective.
Once declined a wedding invitation on race day afternoon. Back when the event was held over the long weekend. Attended the evening reception however, but had to leave early as the F1 was on.

They are no longer married.

The ratings have been pretty average so I'd be surprised if it is extended beyond the scheduled finish next Wednesday.

Where they have been lengthening it is in padding out episodes to go as much as half an hour longer than the traditional 7:30-8:30 prime time slot. Considering the impact of COVID-19 on TV production schedules, this could turn out to be quite handy for helping get Seven through to the end of the ratings season with a minimal number of on their main channel during prime time.

Yep  . . . the one day of the year; not to be missed.
Back in the the 1970's, the engines were not permitted to be completely dry-sumped as they are now. At Sandown, the Fords ran small 12 volt DC pumps externally to circulate oil  through the oil cooler and back into the sump, and the pumps they used failed. At the pump company where I was working there was another engineer who was also a motor sport enthusiast, and we heard about the failures. The two of us got our heads together and reckoned we knew how to make this system work. We flew in another type of 12 volt DC pump from California, and proceeded to stink our workshop out with the smell of hot engine oil as we carried out endurance tests. We satisfied ourselves, and eventually the people at Ford Special Vehicles, so the two Falcons were fitted out with these units. It was single driver cars in those days, and the Fords were in the hands of Alan Moffat and Fred Gibson. On the day of the race, I went round to my mate's place and we sat glued to the TV. His wife brought in food and liquid, and even the loss of viewing time for a piddle was begrudged. Moffat won, and we finally relaxed. That really was gripping TV!

Funny you should say that because i did do exactly that, although slowly, until they finally took the hint and took their smalltalk conversation elsewhere for the rest of the big brother episode.

How selfish and rude! (Exactly what I thought of my dad at the time).

Kieran pressed the red button and walked away from the game with $15,000 on his own terms.
Sophie did not press the red button and was allowed to re enter the house to try for the finale.

Here is an article that attempts to explain why men think it is so cool to dislike popular things, including reality TV shows - https://www.vice.com/en_au/article/v7gzb8/why-men-like-to-dislike-popular-things?utm_source=vicefblocalau&fbclid=IwAR2lUjtgeUk6a0bmnmiFnktu7t9AExEPiCX--6O51DqQ9bQxk_4cXuRAyLY

Personally, the idea that I'm being "cool" by not liking Big Brother et al is the greatest load of bollocks I've read in a while. I have no ambition to feel "cool", simply because I don't give a fishtit about what anybody thinks of my tastes. Those who like them, share; those who don't, do their own thing. Who is this writer? I think his views say more about people who like Big Brother rather than those who don't. He seems to feel a need to justify his liking for such programs by disparaging those of us who don't like them. Chacun a son gout.

You missed the point. It's not about the dislike, but the volume of the dislike. I don't like shows like Neighbours or Home and Away but I don't seek out discussion threads and comment about how stupid those shows are.

I'm in agreeance with Valvegear.

I know plenty of women that dislike popular things too, big deal, it's their choice, so be it.

I can't stand so called "reality t.v." because, for me, it's mind numbingly boring drivel.

I'd rather watch or read something that's of interest to me and something than I can learn from or about, something informative.

If you don't like debate, that's your privilege. I don't seek it out, but as a regular reader and writer, it's here in front of me, and I comment as I see fit.
My last post addressed a specific point raised which was that I, and others, think we're "cool". It was worth a reply which, you may care to notice, addressed that issue only. Furthermore, it was not addressed personally at one of our contributors, but at the writings of a third party which our contributor introduced here. I'd give 7 to 4 on that he expected a reply.

Tonights episode really was one big joke to be honest. The producers stacked the odds against the romance by giving Sophie a handicap in both challenges. The producers stacked the odds toward the bromance by giving Matt an extra vote at eviction. This meant that little old Sarah got caught in the crossfire and much to my dismay she was evicted.

Yeah she was the wrong one to go.

Dan was never not going to vote for Matt.....

Seriously Matt and Dan should have been put up next to each other as soon as the evictions moved to a 2 person list.

It emphasises just how fake "reality" TV really is! Predetermined outcome much?

Nah its more of a case of us seeing what we are shown.

I recon if Chad goes, the 3 we are left with will be hard to pick a winner from.

Chad is the one left with the most likability of them all.  Matt and Dan are a bit smeared with negative vibes given their exclusive bromance and actions/reactions regarding Sophie, and people won't like Sophie as she was put back in the house.  Chad is the slightly dumb acting guy that people can warm to most.

Tho really Sarah was probably the last real candidate to be a real peoples favourite.
