In contrast, in the latest mind-bogglingly-dumb betting task BB helped Alex at the last moment by cajoling her to eat on one more chocolate - so she passed and the house completed and won another pointless task. This then rewarded them with yet more booze.
I would have expected them to use the same logic on Jem explaining to her that there are only two days to go and that she should stay. I thought she was awful, selfish, did not live up to her promises, and ruined her sisters week. The house is better off without her and she would have gone anyway, but that is not the point.
I do believe the evictions should have been cancelled this week and along with the diehard BB fans I think this is more a cynical manipulation to try and bring in revenue at the cost of integrity of the show.
Somebody is going tonight that should not. Sadly that person is going to be Harry. Well done Jem!
Do comment as I like to read your opinions.

Yet another voting twist, another uproar. Last week Anton, despite a huge manipulation to keep him in the house, social media won the day and Anton was out and the fans quite rightly saw through BB's plan.
Although to give it some merit, this was a clever idea, but at this stage of the competition it is clearly the wrong idea. True BB fans hate nominations being messed around. There, I said it.
Firstly the Palmer family (Faye/Gem’s relatives) have ganged up on Aaron. By putting Gem’s sister, who they knew she always argued with, in the house and getting Gem’s boyfriend and their mother to vote is biased in the extreme.
Unless the Palmer family and the rest of the country are watching a different programme I do not think Aaron has behaved that badly - yes, he is complex and a little odd at times but he did not deserve that many votes.
Jem on the other hand I think is just awful, she has destroyed her sister’s enjoyment of Big Brother and offers nothing to the viewers. She has nothing constructive to say, she is not interesting and should have carried out her threat to leave. She survived last week only because Anton was hated - and looking at the coverage this week she might survive again as BB clearly wants Aaron out. Alex is still the clear winner in my view as I feel Channel 5 owner Richard Desmond clearly wants to turn her into another money-making Jade Goody (hopefully without the tragedy this time around). The public seems to love no one better than a not-that-bright-but-sweet girl.
Just remember, it is you who decides so do vote for your favourite – if you care that much…

Now, after Aden's exit, when even the housemates were surprised Anton stayed it is clear that Big Brother wants him and Jay in the final and what better way in protecting them by pulling this stunt (watch the show tonight to see what they do).
Jay though is already a losing finalist - did you spot him last night over on Sky with Katie Price's reality show, Signed By Katie where he reached the final 12. I watched and it seems to have taken a little bit of every reality show that has ever been on television and put it into the mix. But Katie is a smart cookie and I have nothing but admiration for her strong business sense and work ethic. Lets watch and see what happens to Jay.
I was beginning to think as as Big Brother past winners have included a gay man, a Scot, a Welsh girl and a mix of not bright and very dull contestants plus Pete that we might finally have someone who went to public school winning the show ie Harry - but this has been dashed. I still think despite the twist/stunt Alex might win.
Is Aaron becoming a little weird or is it a game he is playing? Tom and Alex are floating just below the radar, enough for them to be effectively edited out the show, and that is not a bad thing as the final is quite close. Jem who initially promised great things has gone into hibernation.
The proof is in the pudding and lets see how bright Anton is with the twist. But he has got one thing against him - the public do not like him. But then again when Jade was up for the most one-sided eviction ever, she survived. So stranger things can happen especially on 'reality' TV which we all know by now has nothing to do with 'reality'.

Although Jem (Faye's sister) might make good television she is equally unlikeable, if for not for ruining her sisters enjoyment in the house. However the house is a better place for her as it would have been duller than BB4 if she was not there
Once ex-housemate Rebekah entered the house for a date with Tom in last night's show I had to go and lie down in darkened room and scream. Her agent has probably and correctly diagnosed that the only hope for her t make any money (apart from appearing on various late night Sky channels) is to try and make her relationship with Aden work. The poor boy, he will in time look back and kick himself at his youthful naivety.
As for the relationship between Jay and Louise, at least Louise had the foresight to end this. Now let us see if Jem moves in on Jay. They deserve each other.
Do let me know your thoughts.

I was not surprised a new contestant has entered the house, albeit someone 's sister, we might have for the first time someone who actually delivers on their promise to go in and cause trouble. But this will lead ultimately to their demise. I do not think a new person should enter after a month, they have far too much knowledge, and it usually puts them in an advantageous position.
I liked Jay at first, but there is something not quite right and I cannot put my finger on it yet. Do not get me started on Aden or Anton, one is a wimp and one a snake. I am surprised Harry is still there, him and Aaron are so diversely different from the other housemates, and that is why they get on.
I am more than sure that Alex will now win BB, she is going through a PLKE (positive low key edit) which means they are slowly building her up. So far my predictions have been correct, anyone disagree?
