Celebrity Big Brother Wins

by | 3rd, January 2007

CELEBRITY Big Brother is back.

There will be secret gardens, fake evictions, quadruple evictions, no hot water, only hot water, intruders on the roof and the late twist in which the losers are sent to live on Love Island for eternity and the winner is anointed as Tony Blair’s successor in Number 10. Hurrah!

And as the Celebrity Big Brother housemates get ready to squeeze spots, pluck nasal hairs and pout into one-way mirrors backed by hairy-arsed cameramen dashing through warrens, we settle in.

This is going to be challenging month’s telly in which matters like which celebrity ate the most grains of rice and who ordered quilted toilet roll will take on a massive importance.

And who will win? Well, before the contestants are announced making a bet is a tricky thing. Will Prince Charles win? Will Zippy prove a hit? Or will the spoils go to an unknown, another wannabe plucked from the checkout at Iceland and shot into stardom?

The odds are long on Celebrity Big Brother presenter Davina McCall not shouting all the time (25-1) and not filling gaps in the dire scripted parts by gurning (80-1).

And there is money to be made. The last Big Brother series was won by crusty Pete Bennett, a manipulator who duped so many of us into voting for him (remember his soppy love for Nikki?). At the outset Pete was 7-1 to win.

Last year’s Celebrity Big Brother was hard to call. At the start, non-famous Chantelle Houghton, a Paris Hilton look-alike from Essex – her task was to convince the real celebrities that she was in a band called Kandyfloss – was 11-1 to win. No great odds given the show’s eleven contestants.

With one week of last season’s Celebrity Big Brother remaining Chantelle was 4-7 to win. On the last night, she was in to 1-5. Her closest challenger was her now husband Preston at 5-1.

So who will win? Who will achieve fame and fortune, like Bez (winner in 2005)? Who will not work again? And who will work again, albeit at the Toby Carvery in Walsall?

Place your bets…
