The ‘TV history is made’ tagline is just as tacky as ‘Who Wins You Decide’.
My take is Taras already knew he won’t stand a chance hence I didn’t think he made a very compelling case on stage as he would normally do in the house to stay in the game. He was just a millennial who is trying to enjoy his moment on stage. Even I knew that he won’t win but I voted for him anyway as a matter of principle.
For someone who played the game to eliminate Estelle and Tim, I don’t think Taras is stupid. Like those so called Reggie fans, I’d like to see something good in people. He kept her in the Top 3 so that the country can donate another lot of $250,000 to her.
I think Johnson would have felt more disappointed.
In retrospect, if I were a newbie and I knew that there would be OGs this season, I would be pissed.
P.S. I love Estelle’s elation when the winner was announced.
Saw this comment on TV Tonight not sure if true or just rumour
Tim has stated on his podcast that the show is coming backing and is likely to involve old BB housemates again. They are currently in the middle of doing minor renovations on the house. He also alluded that he will be involved again in some capacity, possibly in a BB after show like they had with Love Island last season.
The other four are:
Jill Liv Neilsen (Big Brother Denmark season 1 and Big Brother Denmark Reality All-Stars)
Pepe Herrero (Gran Hermano season 7 and Gran Hermano: El Reencuentro season 1) - Gran Hermano is the Spanish name for Big Brother
Brian Dowling (Big Brother UK season 2 and Ultimate Big Brother)
Gino Tashev (VIP Brother Bulgaria season 7 and Big Brother Bulgaria All-Stars season 5)
The final flopped in the overnight ratings with just 363,000. Seven couldn’t even be bothered to include a Winner’s Announcement coding - if they had the main program segment would have looked even worse. The result was lower than three episodes during this season and was half the audience for last year. The average overnight audience for the year was 344,000.
This year could’ve been so successful because there were a lot of people interested in seeing the OGs return. Sticking with the new BB format of 2% housemate interaction and 98% eviction challenges/strategy talk Ch7 ruined the show. How good the show could’ve been if they showed all the fun stuff the housemates get up to.
I can’t believe I stopped watching the show part way through this year; I reverted to watching the last 2 minutes of each show and didn’t even need to watch the final episode as the winner was so obvious. I never thought it would happen, having watch every episode of every season until now.
