Scott, To Be Certain

Vesna: Victor?

It is irresistibly obvious to all sane, reasonable persons that the most generally fantastic and amazing person in the entire southern hemisphere on Big Brother is VESNA.

And now, news has just been joyously announced, via that morally sound not-for-profit institution with an electronic presence at, that Vesna is now FAVOURITE TO WIN THE ENTIRE FUCKING SHOW.

Vesna presently stands at 2.25 to 1 to conquer all.

Sometimes, in an uncertain world prone to tragedy and unfairness, things nonetheless just fall beautifully into place, don't they?

For those interested in unnecessary other details, it appears the infinitely inferior contestants' odds are as follows.

Tim 2.50
Greg 5.00
Kate 8.00
Christie 34.00
Melanie 34.00
Rita 101.00

"It's time to win... VESNA!"

As you were.

    Vesna is the most selfish whining unattractive person on TV. Apart from Grettle maybe. She constantly says the words “I can’t” before she says the words “I will try”.

    If you log onto the Big Brother website right now, the only reference to Vesna on the front page leads you to this:

    16:36 Vesna starts on dinner and says that she hopes she doesn't have to ever be shopper/chef again.
    Vesna complains that she hates being shopper/chef and says that hopefully someone other than the Logans will win tonight. Greg says: "Wouldn't it be funny if I won again tonight?"

    Checking the updates for today leads you to other Vesna references:
    10:45 Vesna starts to make porridge for breakfast and has a little spit with Rita.
    Vesna and Rita snap at each other in the kitchen over the dishes. They are arguing whether doing the dishes is a waste of time. Vesna misunderstands and thinks that Rita is saying the BB experience is a waste of time and Rita threatens not to do any of the dishes if Vesna doesn't start to agree with her. Vesna says: "You have this control thing about you were if you aren't in control you won't do it at all." Vesna goes on to say that she has never met anyone like Rita who will refuse to do things if not done in her way.
    11:18 The HMs start to get ready for the day. Vesna worries about her business on the outside.
    Rita enters the bedroom and tries to talk to Tim about Vesna. She says: "She cracks up at any little thing. She just doesn't take jokes."
    Vesna does her hair in the bathroom and talks to Rita about her dreams. She says she's been dreaming about bad things happening with her business while she is in the House. Rita tells her that she could be just paranoid and that the dreams don't necessarily mean something bad is really happening.
    11:51 Melanie says the she thinks she will be evicted on Sunday and Kate comments that her workmates probably love her absence.
    Vesna tries on Kate's black dress and she complains her stomach looks big in it. Kate tells her she's being silly and that it looks better on her than on Kate. Tim comments: "I didn't realise dresses were so malleable."
    12:17 The HMs discuss the impending eviction and Rita's recent efforts at frustrating the HMs.
    Both Christie and Vesna both also think that they will be evicted on Sunday. Vesna says the crowd will be huge for Christie if she does go. Tim and Greg wonder if the National sales of cabbage have risen since she's been in the House. Christie says that it would have been interesting if the original nominees of Christie, Kate and Rita were the only ones up this week. She comments that it would have been very, very close.
    The talk turns to Rita and Vesna says that the other day Rita said to her that she thinks Vesna is bigger than her.
    15:34 The HMs talk about what they were doing the day they auditioned for the show.
    Christie says: "Doesn't it freak you out to think why they chose you over all those people?" Vesna says: "If they don't pick me they must be stupid, that's what I was thinking." She went on to say that she would have tried out next year if she didn't get in. Tim asks her if she will audition again next year now and everyone laughs.

    I have only left out 2 references to Vesna in the whole day. And every one listed here portrays her in a bad light.

    Tip to Vesna (and Cam),

    "Do or do not - there is no try"

    I'm with Scott on this one. Yes, she whinges but she's the most emotionally honest person in the house at the moment. Having said that though, it's a travesty that Tim isn't favourite.. The alfalfa male!!

    Update from an addicted gambler is that Tim is back into a $2.20 favourite ahead of Vesna at $2.40.

    Interestingly Vesna is dominating the popularity poll on the BB website though.

    Tim is too Ben and Pete for my liking - Im sick of asexual males - really they should go fuck themselves isnt that true to their definition anyway?

    I have seen little of any BB series because traditionally they are filled with sterotypical "boy's boy's" and ditzy, annoying girls. Go Ves for the fact that she's honest, is willing to express her emotions and is upfront and willing to call people dickheads if that is what they are! Enough of the "he's so nice" types winning - lets have a winner who is actually willing to voice an opinion and show ANY emotion. And may that then be the end of appalling "reality" TV once and for all.

    to bec,

    Vesna's willingness to "to call people dickheads if that is what they are" is the quintessential pot calling the kettle black. I am just sick of her pointing out faults in everyone else (generally the exact faults she has in her personality) and accepting no criticism in return.

    I could go on and give examples but then people may realise the sad existence that I have due to my over knowledge of big brother.

    Cam: "Over knowledge"?

    I agree that it is best you refrain from providing examples, but only because this will mercifully limit your ability to further murder our fine language.

    Vesna currently holds the lead with 51% of the popularity vote. Tim is next at 29%. Scotty might be onto something here.

    I think there's nothing left to argue on this point after Vesna's brilliant performance at the weekend dinner party, and then her appearance last night in a tracksuit while referencing Britney Spears in a Kath & Kim voice.

    We have a winner.
