Young love evicted

View­ers swing the axe on ro­mance, writes

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SATURDAY EXTRA -

AVA David’s ro­man­tic dal­liance with bud­ding mu­si­cian Josh was cut short when she was evicted from Big Brother with the worst vot­ing per­cent­age this se­ries.

David, the first of two in­trud­ers on the Chan­nel 9 re­al­ity se­ries, re­ceived just 14 per cent of the votes cast by view­ers to be saved from evic­tion.

It was her first time up for evic­tion, un­like Vic­to­rian law stu­dent Estelle who seems more like a squat­ter than a house­mate on Big Brother.

Un­wanted by her house­mates and put up for evic­tion four times, Estelle has sur­vived each time. Tues­day night was the third con­sec­u­tive week she re­lied on the pub­lic to save her.

Estelle re­ceived 38 per cent of the votes to be saved, while Angie, who was up for her sec­ond evic­tion, pulled 48 per cent of the votes cast.

David’s de­par­ture means there is now an even num­ber of male and fe­male house­mates among the 10 re­main­ing con­tes­tants.

David told host So­nia Kruger dur­ing her exit in­ter­view that it was al­ways go­ing to be tough to win over the view­ers af­ter en­ter­ing the house as an in­truder.

‘‘It was al­ways go­ing to be a chal­lenge,’’ David says.

‘‘They (Angie and Estelle) have had longer in the house, so peo­ple have had more time to warm to them. ‘‘They have a fol­low­ing.’’ David’s life as an in­truder started four weeks into the se­ries.

She said she tried to con­nect with all the house­mates and not think too much about the

host So­nia Kruger like­li­hood of be­ing evicted, al­though she ended up be­ing the sixth con­tes­tant booted out of the com­pound at Dreamworld theme park on the Gold Coast.

‘‘We’d al­ways want a lit­tle more time (in the house), but we can’t have that,’’ she says.
