Big Brother Day 41: Rex and Belinda Nominated
Belinda and Rex are reportedly up for eviction this week.
The flamboyant theatre director and executive chef will face the public vote after racking up the most nominations from their fellow Big Brother housemates.
Belinda – who entered the house with Sara and Maysoon just over a week ago – has incurred the group’s wrath with her constant snoring, which the contestants claim keeps them awake.
Her outgoing nature and penchant for singing has also caused some members of the house to suspect she is an actress planted by Big Brother.
Rex – who has faced the public vote before – has been criticised for his boring chatter, including constant tales of his restaurants and flashy lifestyle.
He has also been accused of trying to instigate rows within the house, most notably when he smudged ex-housemate Jennifer’s painting.
The infamous argument which followed resulted in Dennis being removed for spitting in Mohamed’s face.
A show insider said “It’s The Snore versus The Bore – and it’s going to be an exciting fight. Belinda has only been in the house just over a week and she hasn’t really done anything so it looks like curtains for her.
“But fans tend to like Rex because he speaks his mind and winds people up.”
The heavenly housemates were given fish and chips last night.
The contestants in Hell – Belinda, Lisa, Luke, Rebecca, Sara, Stuart and Mikey – were particularly annoyed about the treat because Lisa had just prepared a meal of chicken nuggets, potatoes and rice, which those in Heaven had eaten.
The Hell housemates – who must serve those in Heaven by preparing all their meals – were also upset because the house is currently surviving on a basic shopping budget of just £1 per person per day after failing last week’s shopping task.
Bex vented her anger by insisting they couldn’t use tomato ketchup, adding “You just had tea when you knew you were getting a takeaway! We could have had more chicken nuggets.”
Luke also complained, pointing out Darnell – who was elected leader of the house last week and picked those who entered Heaven – was Head of House not Head of Luxury.
Darnell did not help the mood in the house when he claimed the treat was a reward for the potato-peeling task the Hell housemates completed earlier in the day.
Lisa muttered “Go on, rub it in.”
A furious Mikey said Darnell had hardly spoken a word without food in his mouth recently.
He added “And Mo said he didn’t have room for tea, but he’s got plenty of room for that fish supper.”
