You spend time and texting money voting people out the Big Brother house. Then what happens? Channel 4 lets them back in again. So far, Channel 4 has received 600 complaints, most of them alleging that C4 has effectively defrauded them:
“Only an ABSOLUTE FOOL would ever waste their money voting on this show ever again! Are they seriously trying to piss off their loyal fans by doing this? Well done BB – you’ve boosted ratings and given Nikki another chance to shine – but at what cost?”.
Or how about:
“Hmmm…. Fraudulent misrepresentation…. Obtaining money by deception… Conspiracy to defraud… even plain and simple theft – anyone think of any others?”
I’d actually agree with those complaining, although since I’ve not spent any money on voting, I’m not that fussed. Surely the whole point of voting to evict people is to get them out the house. And if you’re told that’s what your 25p or whatever it is is going to do, you’re entitled to feel annoyed if Channel 4 turns round later and says it doesn’t.
I’m just upset the evil Nikki is undoubtedly going to go back in. There’s a four-year-old downstairs from us that screams all day for HER MUMMY!!! and we know she’s going to be just like Nikki when she grows up. It’s only by ignoring their tantrums that they learn to behave, guys…
UPDATE: At 3.44pm, the number of complaints is up to 1,196.
