Ben On Ben: The Shock Eviction!!
Benjamin Norris Can’t Believe The Favourite Is Out….
Ben and Ben!
Big Brother 2013 will never be labeled as 'predictable' in the history books! This season, which originally had people stating, 'it was easy to pick the evictee!' just got blown out of the water.
Series favourite Ben from Brisbane was evicted - and whilst we have seen him tackle a fake eviction previously, the journey is now officially over for the man who was the bookies favourite to win.
Last night reminded me of Ricki Lee’s shock exit back on Australian Idol. It was speculated at the time that the super successful reality alumnus was shown the door when her die-hard fans forgot to vote and I can’t help but wonder if the same thing has happened to Ben.
When he arrived the audience stopped for three whole minutes - just to give him a standing ovation! It was electric! I didn't know if the audience was going to storm the stage, or if we all would cry a million 'Tully' tears.
One thing was for sure; Ben left a genuine mark on the audience - something I don't believe has happened since Sarah Marie’s bum-dancing days.
To be honest the shake up was amazing to watch. I revel in Big Brother when it is at it's most shocking and real.
I met Ben after the show. We both were a little emotional, with the added coincidence that we shared the same name and sexuality adding to our meeting.
The whole outcome of Ben’s stay has been fantastic, I say! Australia got to see a very different story to mine and a very different story about a same-sex lifestyle. Where I had found love, Ben was looking for it and living a single-and-looking life – something that’s very common.
Catching up with housemates this year is weird, as the housemates know me and I know them. So, in a funny way, we always feel like instant friends. Ben was no different and I truly loved meeting him.
This week there are two names coming back to the show. They will be taking part in a similar task we saw last year… but I can’t give too much away!
I can say that it won't be housemates returning (I wish!), but it’s actually something bigger! Fans of the show of old will love it and that’s all I can reveal. Better tune in!
