Have you all been tuning into CBB 2013? I was actually a little disappointed when Jim Davidson had to pull out of the show at the last minute. If his previous reality TV appearances are anything to go by, he was bound to, for better or worse, make an impact on the show.
The betting odds would have you believe that the series is already over. Rylan Clark is a super short 1.31 with betfair at the time of writing. Neil Ruddock is second favorite at 9.4 with all of the other housemates 18-1 or more. It's hard to argue with Rylan's position as favourite. He proved himself by taking all of the 'joke act' comments on the chin in X Factor and rising above it with his own unique brand of humour. Although he has the occasional meltdown he generally seems to be pretty sensible and has a good heart. Despite being a very different personality altogether Razor Ruddock has those attributes too, which goes some way to explaining his popularity.
Americans and reality TV veterans Heidi and Spencer are given half a hope if the odds are to be believed. They're in the 'love to hate' category right now though, and in my view are likely to remain there. Even if the public do warm to them, will it be enough for them to win the show? Right now I don't think so. If you're looking for an outsider with a chance, I'd go with Frankie Dettori at 30-1 with bookmakers and up to 50-1 on betfair.
