Housemates’ friends and family to nominate
Today will see another nominations twist as friends and family...
| Day -318

Today will see another nominations twist as friends and family members of the nine remaining housemates will nominate on their behalf.

This twist was previously used by Channel 5 in 2011, and attracted criticism from fans over Big Brother’s disregard for its own ‘no contact with the ouside world’ rule.

It will also be the latest in a run of consecutive nomination twists after Turf Wars in week 6, face-to-face nominations in week 7, plus last week when just one nomination would see a housemate automatically put up for eviction.

Today, housemates will watch one friend or family member nominate two others on their behalf while giving their reasons why.

Is this a good idea, or should Big Brother have left the nominations process alone this week?

  1. :clapping: love that hms friends and rellies will nominate ..should be VERY interesting …

    love the idea…. but will the families go by what the others have said about their friend/family or will they go by who they dont like?…. hope luke A isnt up! hes the only decent one in there -.-

    This is going to be interesting. I think that Conor is likely to be up. Becky and Lushleigh could also be in danger but the insiders could always get away with it this week as it is 5 on 4 and Luke A and Deana could face each other.

  4. i think that they will vote tactically, the insiders families will vote for the good guys to be up because they know that they are a threat to thier precious bully children at the final. Bad move BB. Hopefully everyone will have some guts and say exactly what they think of the bullies, watch the fireworks, Conor will kick off.

    Thank you Joseph ,Alec Ben ,for the hard work that you do much appreciated :yes:

    Hopefully the families and friends will do the right thing and nominate Conor for his horrific rant about Deana

    But I think not ,,they will mainly go for the most popular hms on the outside to help their loves ones get to the final and win :no:

      Hi Microsis. I am not a fan of the F & F nominations, even though, realistically, it could favour the outsiders. Have a horrible feeling that even if the F & F have seen the nasty behaviour in the house, seen Conor targeting Deana day after day, they will probably still vote for their little darlings! I live in hope that Sara and Scott’s F & F will be on side with the outsiders…..but not holding my breath! Noms should not be messed with – its a BB golden rule.[or was!]

      • I hope that Sara and Scott’s family will be on the side of the outsiders.
        Maybe a miracle might happen and Becky’s family see through Connor and nominate him, he’s so transparent.
        Can’t get over Luke S not knowing what lust meant, silly apeth.

        Luke A, Deana or Adam to win :evilgrin:

    for years bb has been a successful show so why do they keep messing around with it if it aint broke. check the viewing figures thats why you vote to save instead of evict got to make their money from for noms today human nature says that f f will vote for anyone who is a danger to theirs

    It was outrageous that the evening before nominations, Alice bloody Levine put the boot into the outsiders and didn’t say a bad word about the insiders. Even if that’s how this smug so called presenter feels, she should be neutral and show all sides. I’m not watching BOTS until Emma is back.

    • Totally agree Jenny. Caroline sat there, totally unchallenged by the sycophants, spouting the most contentious biased nonsense. I do think this generally happen though. The most repugnant people have left that house to near adulation from BBBOTS. Emma Willis is by far the worst fence sitter of them all. She just LOVES everybody,so we ignore her opinions in return, because she doesn’t dare express her real feelings. Jamie is a bit bolder but not enough. The whole show last night was insider biased. But we have always known tht. Look at the disgusting behaviours they have got away with.

    • don’t watch this stupid show anymore, so can no longer be offended by the sycophants appeasing bigots and racists.

  9. Loved Terry Christian last week. Spoke his mind truthfully about housemates and then sarcastically said “but they are lovely people” Very Carolinesque. Wher are the outspoken guests this series. Bring back the v best Pete Burns

    • Biddy on 3:05pm July 30 '12

      Are you serious….Pete Burns was one of the most vile , ignorant ,foul mouthed people to set foot in the BB studio……
      No thankyou…never want to set eyes on that “thing” ever again….
      And the least said about Terry Christian the better!!!

        OMG, I totally agree. Pete Burns was very nasty and not easy on the eyes. Grotesque.
        You’re spot on , about them both, Biddy :yes:
        I don’t want to see TC nor PB for the rest of BB/CBB history.

    • I think Pete Burns is really funny and says it how it is. Wish he could have been there when Caroline was on the show, he wouldn’t have held back, unlike the other guests, which were boring. liven up Bit on the Side. :sleepy:

        Totally agree Katy Peter Burns tells it how it is & sod the consequences, my favourite saying of his regarding a h/m was ” if it looks & sounds like a c$$$t then it is a c$$$t priceless, he could have been talking about Caroline or Connor if he had said it this series.

    • He was bloody AWFUL. The WORST and RUDEST Wouldnt let anyone else speak and spouted absolute shite and obviously isnt watching the same show as ther est of us. Dreadful man. I dont k now how ANYONE couls say he was good

  10. Biddy on 3:00pm July 30 '12

    Memories of last year come to mind when BB did everything possible to get rid of Aaron… was horrid to watch…but Team Aaron won in the end!!!
    This year they have gone one step further by condoning the bullying of Conor and Caroline etc…….
    Not impressed BB ,,you are ruining a great show with your biased opinions …..
    :music: :music: :music:

  11. bigbrother. has finally killed the series off. with all the troubles in uk at mo for tv execs to encourage racism bullying nastyness etc in their show is a BIG mistake. the nasty innsiders get away with all sorts. this will be the last in series. remember you heard it here….

    • on 3:41pm July 30 '12

      Quite agree I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be the last series , I think that the way bullying & racism has been dealt with this year could well be the final nail in the coffin

  12. northernmonkey on 3:57pm July 30 '12

    Nah it will be back, people are people and we all say things we shouldn’t at times. BB can’t and shouldn’t have control of what people say in there.

    The word “BULLYING” gets over used now, BB have always had gangs, although this has been one of the worst years – It’s for the viewers to decide if we think this behaviour is exceptable or not.

    Caroline was a truly vile person, but she got what was coming to her, people now know she is a person whom should never be trusted.

    Let’s face it, BB without a hate figure or 2 ( in this case about 5) wouldn’t be worth watching, we watch to see these people eventually get their comeuppence. Remember Nasty Nick from bb1 ? Bea? Grace ? and not to mention the numerous annoying idiots they used to have on.

    • Biddy on 4:32pm July 30 '12

      Just take a moment Northernmonkey and read exactly what the vile foul mouthed Conor said, YAYAH has written it down for you…..
      And you think this is ok ? This is not only abusive but threatening too….The worst comments ever…HM’s have been thrown out for far less…..
      I for one do not want to see this person on my TV screen ever again, and think BB have let there viewers down big time…
      :music: :music: :music:

  13. Yayah on 4:19pm July 30 '12

    Me and a few others are going to post Conor’s speech towards Deana. Please make people fully aware of what he said, [copy&paste]

    Conor – Get your epilator, stick it up your ass. We don’t give a f**k, cause i’m gonna (inaudible). I’ll give her a fun game, i’ll stick this up her f*****g minge the stupid bastard. I’ll give her a f*****g epilator (pushes brush upwards)/ I’m gonna play loadsa pranks on her.
    Because she’s a f*****g piece of s**t. I don’t care if i get pulled up to the diary room.

    Ashleigh – What if she chucked water on ya

    Conor – I’d punch her in the face. Just knock her out (punches the air) I’d say, get up off the mat you piece of s**t.

    • I saw this and I really think it should have been played into the house, I dont think that all of the housemates heard it and as far as I know he didnt tell them that he had been warned, he lay in the bathroom after the warning looking like he was going to cry.

    • I totally agree what a foul mouth creature Conner is cannot stand him what i cant understand is why the hm that were around the table when he said it didnt pull him up about what he said since Ashleigh was there mind u thats her kind of talk anyway she doesnt see anything wrong in what he said its second nature to her. Does anyone agree she looks like DOBBY from harry potter someone else had posted this she has no morals a dirty mouth and says it all about her when she can jump into bed in the first week with someone she hardly knows

  14. the house mates are puppies compared to the bb people and channel five for allowing !!!!!!

  15. Biddy on 4:43pm July 30 '12

    The nominations have taken place and some housemates are not happy!!!!!
    So worried for the outsiders….
    :music: :music: :music:

  16. ASHLIEGH, BECKY, DEANA, LUKE A all up for eviction. Why not Conor, hope the families are proud of themselves for allowing that bigot to stay yet again. Becky or Ashliegh out this week, though I think its a double so Becky and Ashliegh are gone.

    • Biddy on 5:32pm July 30 '12

      Yes cannot believe the vile Conor has escaped again….
      We must get rid of Becky and Ashleigh…but i think it is only a single eviction and the white room may evict someone…possibly the person who wins the £25,000 has a choice to leave with the money or a pass to the final…not sure….
      :music: :music: :music:

  17. marmaris4ever on 5:22pm July 30 '12

    yes yes yes ashleigh becky deana luke a up leys get rid of first 2 woop woop :yes:

  18. Yayah on 5:25pm July 30 '12

    Hahah, yay! Hopefully Rebecca goes! Finally, it’s all unravelling before the final.

  19. AmericanCousin on 5:30pm July 30 '12

    How isn’t Conor up? This is utter bs. This game show is fixed.

    • I know, I can not understand how the families especially the women can allow this vile man to stay, it is tactical voting, they are trying to save thier bully offspring.

  20. microsis on 5:56pm July 30 '12

    :whew: :whew:

    :music: :music: :music:

  21. microsis on 6:06pm July 30 '12

    Adam, Luke S ,Scott ,Sara Conor ,
    are now the only hms that have a chance to win the free pass to the final

    It’s not right ,,,a hm should earn a place in the final
    not be handed it on a plate

    :music: :music: :music:

      Lets face it, Microsis, Conor will either be in the final or will have left with the 25 grand.
      It is no longer ” you decide” – BB have made that decision for us and for some unknown reason Conor is their choice.
      BBots last night spoke of Conor as an ‘alpha male’, Caroline said he was a ‘gentleman’ and not a word was said. I really believe the world has gone nuts! What about he F & F – did they all believe Conor deserved to get to the final?
      Got a spare place at the table – will be needing it!!

  22. poppy44 on 6:11pm July 30 '12

    SO Luke A, Becky, Deana and ashleigh are up this week. Should of been smug conor & luke s.

  23. brokenangel on 6:48pm July 30 '12

    They will hve to be careful to nominate Conor, their loved ones have to live in the house and could be reprisals.

  24. brokenangel on 6:56pm July 30 '12

    They should have left noms alone- the public are paying so why can’t the votes apply to our choice ?
    Luke S and Conor talked Nominations and not a word was said to them- BB is going down the pan—- won’t be watching next year as I know now what will happen- BB keeps there chosen on in by all means.

  25. See how luke a is giving us his tears cause hes up he should not hav said that he does nothing but sneek about gossiping hes the biggest snake in there and i hope hes out this week

    • blah, blah ,blah, no go do one u txxt

    • Conor – Get your epilator, stick it up your ass. We don’t give a f**k, cause i’m gonna (inaudible). I’ll give her a fun game, i’ll stick this up her f*****g minge the stupid bastard. I’ll give her a f*****g epilator (pushes brush upwards)/ I’m gonna play loadsa pranks on her.

      Ashleigh – What if she chucked water on ya

      Conor – I’d punch her in the face. Just knock her out (punches the air) I’d say, get up off the mat you piece of s**t.
