Over the years, there’ve been various ‘gates’ and the latest is Nominationgate.
After BB punished the HMs by removing their shopping budget and putting them on basic rations, a meeting was called by Steve.
He told the gathered HMs, “Let’s get serious, we f***ed up… we’re here as a team…
“We’ve got to kerb what we’re thinking… nobody gets any blame.”
Shabby, who’d been shaking her head as he spoke said, “I completely disagree with you.
“We weren’t talking about nominations, we were talking about people talking about nominations.”
They know you know, but they don’t know we know that they know… Yep, what Shabby said makes about as much sense as that.
She added that everyone had discussed nominations at some point, to which Dave said, “I don’t think I have.”
Shabby then yelled, “As if!”
Nathan decided a statement of the obvious was called for and said, “Rules are f***ing rules, aren’t they? You’re not allowed to do it, are you?”
Not one to be outdone, Shabby then referred to Ben’s ‘code’ speak when he let slip that he’d nominated Sunshine.
She said, “They have completely twisted what we said.”
Ben agreed, adding, “We were discussing an earlier discussion, that’s all it was.”
However, Sunshine was in a strop – again – after discovering that Ben had nominated her. Ben tried to explain that it was before he’d got to know her.
He said, “It was in the first few days of arriving,” and he added that she wasn’t his “close friend” at that time.
But given she’s a sulky moo and can’t let go of a grudge, she said, “You can’t admit that you’re wrong. You’ve broken my trust.
“All I can say is you’ve let me down.”
John then decided he was going to wade in and take Sunshine’s side, so he told Ben, “She was your sixth closest friend, and there’s 14 people in the house.”
Oh my god… he’ll be talking fractions next.
So in an attempt to apologise and explain – yet again – his reasons for nominating Sunshine, Ben kept on about it, to which eventually, John yelled, “Stop f***ing talking about nominations, we’ve just been warned about it!
“Just drop it!”
Nathan was also sick of hearing it and told Ben, “Can you stop talking about this, you’re starting to pi** me off.”
But as ever, Mario was firmly on Ben’s side and said, “I don’t care what people think of you, I’m your friend.
“I made the decision the first night I met you to be your friend, and I’m sticking by it.”
Awww bless! More BB news soon.
