Big Brother 8
The threat to quit the
Big Brother house became reality as Chanelle walked out the BB8.
19-year-old Chanelle kept her word and walked out the Big
Brother house. The biggest fan of Posh Spice packed her bags,
and despite the efforts of Gerry and the twins to change her
mind, the young student demonstratively walked out of the Big
Brother house, telling the viewers: "It's not a goodbye - it's a
see you later."
Speculations are that Ziggy dumped her the
night before and this prompted Chanelle to quit the show on
Sunday. It appears that after the emotional conversation between
Chanelle and Ziggy, the couple may continue their romance when
Ziggy gets out.
Or this could be another trick by the Big
Brother 8 producers to bring back some of the audience. The show
is currently at its lowest viewing numbers - just over 3.5
million people tune in to watch Big Brother each night.
Whatever the real reason for the departure,
Chanelle is out of the house and dealt a blow not only to the
fans but t the bookmakers, as well. Until Sunday, Chanelle was
one of the favorite to win Big Brother 8 with odds 5/1, as
published by the U.K. bookmaker
Bet365 (new window). Liam also
paid out 5/1 and Brian holds the best odds - 1/2. Chanelle's
lover, Ziggy, is still trailing with betting odds on winning the
BB8 at 50/1, the bookmakers being confident that him and
Chanelle will resume their romance on the outside pretty soon.
