All You Need Is Hate

"All you need is Love" may have got The Beatles topping the charts for 3 weeks back in swinging '67, but with regards to this week's eviction they were way off.

This week we have a fascinating eviction contest in which love has played it's part, but has not been the crucial factor in deciding who goes. We could all see from the results of our special survey last week how you would feel towards the "tag-team" pairings up for eviction tomorrow. You would love Pete & Richard. You wouldn't really care about Susie & Imogen. You wouldn't really like Spiral & Michael.

So why will Spiral and Michael leave the house tomorrow, if it's a positive vote? How can we be so sure that Susie & Imogen will get positive votes when the overiding feeling towards them is one of intense apathy?

Here's how.

Of the 465 responses that we've had this week to our survey on who you want to save, 78% of you have either Pete or Richard as your 1st or 2nd favourite. A rational person would expect all of these voters to save their heroes (given that, of the second places, hardly any are ursurped by Susie, Imogen, Spiral, or Michael). However, only 82% of these voters choose to do so. The majority of the rest are being driven by their hatred for the Gruesome Twosome.

This is a large part of the reason why Susie & Imogen are attracting 3 times as many votes as the G.T., and this is why the G.T. will leave the big brother house tomorrow.

As I pointed out at the start of this week, it would appear that the voting public have not satisfied their desire for the smell of burning witches just yet..
