After Love Island and Big Brother recently ended I found myself lost. I had nothing to gossip about on a night anymore! So, when Celebrity Big Brother launched, I was thrilled to finally have something to sit down and watch at 9pm again.
Every time I watch Big Brother I find that my first impressions and predictions of the housemates always change throughout the series. So, I thought it would be fun to write a first impressions blog post followed by two more posts throughout the series to see how my opinions change.
So here goes…
Shaun Williamson (Barry):
I feel bad that he was given a task on the first night and he was put under pressure to give a killer nomination alone. He is clearly a nice person but I think everyone already knew that.
After Shaun nominated her, she said “I understand, it’s just a game” rather than overreacting; She seems like a nice person. Due to her background, I don’t think she’ll be afraid to get involved in any arguments.
He’s very loud and got involved in the killer nomination when it wasn’t really his place to. I feel as though he’s going to be annoying to live with- good entertainment though.
She’s from where I am originally from (Teesside) so I automatically like her, haha. She doesn’t have a big personality like everyone else though.
She was hilarious on Gogglebox, so I think I’ll like her on Big Brother. Her laugh could get annoying.
She’s had deep conversations already (especially with Paul and Marissa) and she seems to be very genuine. She’ll probably go far because she has a big fanbase.
He seemed to get around on the first night and speak to everyone without leaving anyone out so that’s good. I think he’ll be good entertainment because he’s got a fun personality but he’s likely to get annoying. I laughed hard when he set off the alarm by accident.
Boring. Let’s face it, we watch it for the fun and drama. So, I don’t think he’ll stay in long unless he starts a showmance- which is likely.
He’ll bring the drama as always and probably start a showmance. He’s already starting chatting up Marissa, of course!
I hadn’t heard of her before she came on CBB. Her voice is pretty annoying but I’m sure she’ll bring the entertainment from what I’ve heard about her. Shane Dawson tweeted about her and I love Shane so I’m sure I’ll love her.
She’ll definitely bring the drama, from what I saw of her on Ex On The Beach. Especially when they’ve had a drink.
I liked him on Made in Chelsea but I haven’t watched that for years! I think he’ll be a good laugh.
Likely to be the mum of the house but she’s so funny and crazy, I think people are going to like her.
I didn’t really like his VT; I think he’ll be quite boring. But, he does seem like a gentleman for saving Sandi’s bed for her. His ghost stories could be pretty fun.
Jordan described her as a mother figure which I think could be accurate. Also I feel like the way she described Chad as a “boy-man” is accurate. I like the way she is looking at things.
Let’s see how these thoughts have changed in a few weeks time. Let me know your opinions too, I’d love to hear them!
Side note- Does anyone else think it’s unfair how Jordan and Jemma are getting paid to be on CBB but Chanelle and Ellie (housemates in Big Brother) didn’t? In my eyes, they’re all as famous as each other because Chanelle found fame on Ex On The Beach and Ellie was on Ibiza Weekender with Jordan.
