CBB Final - James Hill to win

I'm hardly going out on a limb with this one as James Hill is currently 1/3 in the betting, but it seems strange not to state a position on who will win so that's who I'm going to go with. He's played a blinder throughout the series really, and has had the patience of a saint with the likes of Austin, Jenna and Farrah  (who along with former Big Brother contestant Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace managed to help CBB Bit on the Side get taken off the air last night).

Natasha Hamilton similarly has done herself proud, only 'losing it' when at the end of her tether, she's 4-1. Austin is currently third favourite at 8-1. With all of the drama he's caused and the fact that despite his sometimes hateful outbursts he's not quite as one dimensional as Farrah and Jenna, I can see why he's given an outside chance. That said quite often people like the 'good guy' to win these shows, and I'm not sure that Austin fits the bill as far as that definition goes.

That leaves us with Stevi and Chloe at 40-1, Sherrie Hewson at 100-1 and Bobby Davro at 14-1. Bobby has definitely not done himself any harm, acting with a bit of decency and dignity where others have often failed to. I do think the holier-than-thou aspect to him may have grated with some though and he perhaps hasn't been quite as funny and jokey as we would've hoped. Can you blame him with housemates like this lot though!?!

Celebrity Big Brother: Next Eviction

Currently very short odds for Jenna Jameson to be the first out tomorrow night I see (1/5). I can understand why that is the case as she's adapt at either causing trouble or gossiping, typically as part of a terrible twosome. She certainly hasn't done a lot to get people onside. You could say the same for Austin of course, with his shocking and explosive attack on Janice last night turning off a few former fans. He's definitely gone off the rails towards the end of the series. There is at least though I suppose a sad backstory to his violent mood swings though and the general feeling is that he's rather lost in there. The show attracts or indeed seeks out people like that to star in CBB. Austin is 8-1 to go. Janice is 7/2. They're both 'marmite' type characters to be honest.

If persuaded to go for a more ambitious bet oddswise, I'd go with Bobby to go first at 8-1. He's been perfectly nice for the most part, but there may be a feeling with chaos all around that he's being a bit too holier than thou. The reality is that he's one of the more reasonable and fairminded celebs in the house of course, but does that make great TV? Could Bobby slip between the cracks?
