I'm starting a new thread because the other one's a bit full now (and seems to have gone dead as well).

Considering how much time Rex spent bigging My Girlfriend up before she even came into the nouse, telling us she was a princess, etc, surely the least he can do is be loyal to her now. But here he is apportioning blame for bad feeling between them and Kat and Mo, when Mo was in jail. My Girlfriend, needless to say, wasn't present:-

"Nicole said, 'Why do we have to have a campaign for Mo today' blah blah blah. But anyway, you know. Nicole's only bringing problems to this house. For me, anyway. You know, she's obviously not grown up enough to be here. What she has to understand, what she doesn't understand, she says, 'I can't stand being around theeese people', What you have to understand is that in here that's the whole point of being here, that you're around people that you wouldn't normally socialise with. And I understand that more than anyone, you know. I'm not similar to anyone here. I'm not similar to Nicole either."

Great. Short of saying "Get Nicole out", what more could he do to make his wishes clear? My Girlfriend has become My Burden.

I watched the proposal on LB yest and thought it was terribly tacky and attention seeking. But I did think it was lovely when Lisa was crying with happiness as she was talking. It obviously meant a lot to her and she was very touched, and that's all that matters really I suppose.

Rex is an arse and deserves to be with such a mardy cow, although I can't see it lasting very long,

Mamazon Tue 26-Aug-08 00:57:48

that proposal was probably the most cheap tacky and utterly awful things i have ever seen.
but they are both plastic and fake in every way so i guess it suits them.
but yes i agree, they did both seem genuinly pleased with themselves so good for them both.

As for nicole....she is a spoilt little madame and i hope that her parents show her back the tapes and tell her to grow up a bit

anniebear Tue 26-Aug-08 08:15:19

Rex is awful, a control freak and a bully

Hope he goes this week

got a feeling Sara will be up for eviction, I think she is ok though!

Really cant stand Darnell now. He seems to have serious issues. Think he is awful

I would like to see rex go, then Darnell,

Not too sure about Kat

I think Lisa is funny, in a funny kind of way!

anniebear Tue 26-Aug-08 08:15:49

Lol, I thought the proposal was funny and sweet!!

Eve34 Tue 26-Aug-08 08:21:21

I think the proposal was naff. I have not watched it for a few days and as I have no fav I don't think I will be bothering, I usually have a firm fav by now but think they are all dull. Will be interested to see who does win.

shabster Tue 26-Aug-08 08:21:34

I thought the proposal was wonderful...think both of them are very odd BUT it made me grin.

Rex has gone from being my favourite to just hoping he goes next.

Never liked Mikey but love his comments to Nicole and about her!!

TrinityRhino Tue 26-Aug-08 08:25:23

what have I missed
I dont get to watch it all the time

shabster Tue 26-Aug-08 08:27:17

Trinity - Mario to Lisa grin

Really cheesey but good!

ginnny Tue 26-Aug-08 11:02:53

.. and the whole country are invited to the wedding apparently.
(via OK magazine of course hmm
What a cheap publicity stunt, but I suppose they will make a fortune from it.

umbungo Tue 26-Aug-08 12:37:20

i don't understand why rex is always being mean to sara. like that comment about bb gift to her would be a dildo. she may have an annoying voice, but i have quite warmed to her. and am starting to feel sorry for her being talked down to by him all the time.


do you think they'll get any 'deals' when they leave?

Lisa - excercise videos
Kat - cookie ad/ recipe book.
rex - pantomine villian.
mo - mo's meal deal at pizza hut. 1 pizza, 3 cans of cider, 2 cheeseburgers, bucket of chips, chocolate cake and all you can eat buffet for £x.99!!

posieflump Tue 26-Aug-08 12:40:44

I'm started to think Lisa,Rachel or Mikey will win

Sara has grown on me

Not keen on kat - bit too dramatic and hysterical
Darnell is so self obsessed
Bogey Mo is awful - really let himself down doing that
Used to like Rex t can see there is no way he can come back from how controlling he was with Nicole

Fimbo Tue 26-Aug-08 12:42:35

I was in our local shop yesterday and saw some tacky headlines about Rex, Nicole and Gazza & drugs.

Will see if I can find a link....

umbungo Tue 26-Aug-08 12:42:40

oh and rex sniffying that top!! urgghh! get a life man!!!

When I heard that Mario was going to propose I did think it was all a huge publicity stunt (which it was!) BUT given that Lisa & Mario ARE trying to be King & Queen of reality TV - I actually thought it was quite sweet & genuine (for them!). I can also confirm she did used to stand with her nose in the air at the local nightclub 20 years ago grin

Don't know who I want to win - I like Darnell but he's so up & down it's hard to keep up!

its a toss up between Lisa (a local) & Darnell

Fimbo Tue 26-Aug-08 12:52:22

Did Mario leave his wife/partner and children though to be with Lisa?

TwoIfBySea Tue 26-Aug-08 14:03:52

Nicole was on the front of some newspaper today with the headline saying that she was going to make a million from baring her boobs.


Lisa could be on Gladiators.

Jbck Tue 26-Aug-08 14:20:33

I'm sad enough to go on the ch4 forums & a lot of people there thought Nicole was keeping covered up in the house to get more money for 'sexy' shots when she came out.

I really thought she seemed a bit classier than that but clearly not from those photos.

Have no favourite at all as to who should win. Anyone have strong views?

chocciedooby Tue 26-Aug-08 14:37:26

No strong favourite this year for me.
Really liked Darnell but he is quite mixed up and has confused me now....
Still not sure about Kat and Rachel.I think they are nice people but also playing a very clever game.
Want Rex and Mo out soon.
I have liked Lisa all the way through but she hasn't really been an exciting character to watch.
Who will the winner be?????

MamaMimi Tue 26-Aug-08 15:16:25

I think it would have to be Mikey to win for me.

It's really just the 'best of the bunch' kind of choice tho'.

Although I do think it's great the way he will speak up to Rex and the way he did to rude Mardy Arse Nicole.
He doesn't let the fact that everyone else lets Rex get away with it stop him from standing up for himself and speaking his mind.
On that subject particularly his thoughts have kind of reflected my own and I think that's why he is the only one I would choose as a winner.

Also he seems to have a lot of patience and can be quite reasonable and understanding, especially when people are apologising to him for something - he very readily accepts apologies without being huffy and moody with them.

luckymummy74 Tue 26-Aug-08 19:49:51

No clear winner at all this year. I liked Darnell but he's gone all weird now, what was all that with the MP3 player? What a spoilt brat!! He is such a dick sometimes.

I too, ashamedly, shed a tear at the proposal, even though I thought it was soooo cringy and tacky!! It's my hormones....honeslty.

I think I might like Rachel to win for the shit she has put up with from Rex, that would teach him too, for saying how dull she was etc.

Have you all heard of the 'live task' on Weds, or as they are calling it....'shock live task'. Two shows, so obviously some evictions, two I think. Surely they can't evict people from how they do in a task, surely it should be down to public vote??? Quite excited though to see what it is!!!

Jbck Tue 26-Aug-08 20:38:47

BBLB tonight said someone will win £50K but I think it'll be at the expense of them having to leave & thereby not being able to potentially win £100K.

Mo is thru to the final because he's HOH.

I think they are probably all genuine to a degree except for Kat I just don't buy a lot of the things she comes away with.

I wouldn't really be annoyed at any of the ones left winning apart from Kat. Even Rex who'd probably piss it all away on a parteeeee that'd be all over the NOTW (not that I buy it anyway) but he's been genuinely good entertainment, cringeworthy at times & downright rude but always watchable.

Darnell could spend it all on therapy but he'd probably have to put some money to it to get his head straight.

Roll on tomorrow at 11!
