    I Can't believe after all that nasty Connor said inthe house against Deanna and walk from the show Connor is on bots!! My, its disapointing kmt. Jamie and Alison did not ask them, specially Connor, why he said those disgusting things!? Connor did not apologise on camaras or anywhere by that matter!! I have loose interest on BB. Very unreal, disapointing. Specially giving money to that nasty person. Loved BB now its just a ridiculous show!

    Baffled @ why Connor is being treated lyk he is the winner? He should have been pulled up more about his behaviour in the house. Someone should tell Connor that it is not ok to bully some1 because of a personality clash! Anyway clearly something dodgy going on there....blah!.....the winner should still get 100,000 as that is what they agreed to when they signed up 4 da show...Deana to win!

    Totally Agree with the above comment, last year you let miserable nasty bottomfeeder Aaron win, when he came out Boo's were Loud & Clear. This year Conner- Conman nasty nasty backstabbing two faced bottomfeeder & rewarded him with £50000, WHY? He did not deserve it, the public would not of wanted him to win that, why was money even offered their? Total Fix BB, As Long as Conman & he's Uncle are ok huh? Public Seriously stop voting BB decides who stay's & who Go's we are just the mugs contributing towards the £50000 Conman just had... STOP VOTING...........

    @K I agree! I shall never vote again either. Having posted many, many comments giving honest opinions with nothing anywhere near as bad as the vile rants of Conors that BB obviously condone, only a handful were allowed to remain. Most of my comments called for the white room task to be stopped, with valid reasons, before they paid off Conor as it was obviously their intent. I will not watch next years even if they manage to get another series from Channel 5.BB has become a charade and us who voted have been duped out of money the same way Luke S was, but by BB.

    Why oh why will you not let the general public's opinions about how appalled we are about awarding Connor for his distasteful comments be aired. Are you censoring good honest GB public from speaking now? Each of my long posts which I am taking time out to write you are removing I am not saying anything that is wrong. I am surprised you find my honesty distasteful but Connor's ranting behavior acceptable.

    Dear Jamie, Absolutely love you, you are funny and smart most of the time, but not on 4th August 2012 Sat Bit on the side BB. I watched how you dealt with Connor' s rant over the weeks. Out of all your presenters you handled it the best in my MHO. Your quietness spoke volume's you were so speechless at times nodded your head and could not speak or you verbally discredited the inhumane aspects of this despite being such a sexy beast and making us laugh with your innuendo's, but its lovely you know where to draw the line. But on the 4th August Bit on the side BB, you were like Connors best friend, so do you condone his behavior after all? Why was he allowed to be interviewed after what he did. His apologies are so insincere. Left speechless! Please can you or Brian or even Willis, ask the three people who stood by relishing the comments made to Deanna in such a graphical and violet manner by Connor, why they just stood, listened and enjoyed the comments and were gleeful. But did not have the audacity to comment how disgraceful his comments were. So the three people on that day who stood by and listened, but did not condone it, ask them why? But they felt the ridiculous BMI was so "I can't believe Luke said that..." Why has Connor not publicly apologized to Deanna? On your Saturday 4th Bit on the side, Connor truly showed his true color's. I don't care what Luke S thinks, I have the money. We can all imagine what he's going to go straight out and by. I initially started watching big brother, because on Channel four it was taken more seriously and I loved the human interaction, but there was a good moral tone through out. But on Channel five I can not help but feel it is a entertainment show where actors are playing their role, if I wanted that I would watch a good film. So I feel you have lost the general essence of BB a bit. So I enjoy the good bits where honest interaction is happening, I skim the dishonest bits, I do not vote now, and never will. So you might think you are not losing out, but I think except for the hype distasteful topics generate, you are generating any money, which is shameful as this program me has the potential to be so much more. Also Channel Four had more integrity in My humble opinion, as they aired all the interactions of strangers in the house on E4 continuously, where you can be well informed and take voting seriously that if you voted you had watched significant amount before doing so, not disadvantaging anyone in the process. Yours seems very biased. You open up race, sexist and ageist issues, but leave them hanging. I would love to see how much the crime rates go up after shows like this condone Connor's behaviour. Channel four put the message out all the isms are not condoned. Yes we laugh when people do convey these but if only deep down we do not hold these opinions. What I saw on the screen is this young people holding so much prejudice deep down that will have repercussions in our wider society. But I do love watching you and Brain, that has not changed. The soldiers to win all the way Take Care, K

    Is this really a slice of the 20 something age group...what a scary thought , no compassion, no loyalty no honor and you gave a reward for this kind of behaviour....hip and trendy with a smart mouth but underneath what is there?...an empty shell

    I have just feel really disappointed with Big Brother this year and the things that have happened. I think after this year I will not bother to watch another series. I think that it was disgusting that Conor was allowed to stay in the house after his vile outburst about Deana. If it had been my daughter I would of wanted her out of that house if the person responsible had not been removed. I think Deana has done well with what she has had to put up with many of the people in the house, she deserves the rest of the money.

    @ Krista.. I know only too well. But at the same time, if the global government wants to homogenise the population to the antithesis of the 'insniders' it wouldn't be so bad but it is 'mooks' like them which keep up the conspicuous consumption that is the driving force behind it all... The BMI airmiles thing got me loling, she certainly got some milage out of it.... @ Bob... I've always thought that ALL HMs should be up for eviction from the first week... It would certainly require a different gameplan

    Scott was trying to tell Sarah that he preferred smalls groups so he can really converse when she interrupted saying if anyone isn't going to listen to her, then she wouldn't talk to them! Nobody can finish a sentence with her around! How many times has she talked over Deana and the rest. Deana is annoying with the prayers and soldier tosh. Miss Holier-than-thou Goody-two shoes. Adam or Scott to win.

    @Sergei Lord:-I agree BB was always a dictatorship, but the past few years and especially this year they have lost the plot. As a reality programme where viewers vote for the HMs they want to win the money it worked well. Unfortunately, BB wants to make the decisions, which takes the viewers out of the equation. It is our votes that contribute to the prize money but we haven’t been given the opportunity to let the HM we want get the prize. They will get half of the money that they were originally told they would be able to get. It seems to me that not only the HMs but the producers are guilty of the well known saying: ‘ intoxicated by the exuberance of their own verbosity’. And I‘m sure A-level students would do a much better job than the current producers.

    Sergei you should know we are heading towards a one world government - maybe BB is in on the plot too!! ;) Just watched BOTS and it did make me laugh a few times. Jamie asking Brekkie about BMI air miles and then just giving her that look and sighing - haha I rewound that three times to watch. And what kind of dance moves was she doing at the end - blimey!! That just made me roll my eyes but each to their own. My own personal dance moves are very similar to the backing dancers they had on!! I noticed Conor had dyed his hair lol...Im soooo glad he is going to put all the dosh into a wedding - nowt to show for it apart from a few photos and in a few years time he will be back to square one!!

    @djb... I agree that BB has turned into a dictatorship but that is Big Brother in the true Orwellian sense. What I don't agree with is the habitus that the dictatorship is trying to create, one of individualistic sociopaths who cling on to societal goals without the ability to achieve them in a normal environment... e.g. Becky, a wannabe actress.. Luke S, a nightclub promoter; Scott, wants to be a celebrity Historian... Now how do these things contribute to society? Whereas Luke A prepares the food we eat; Adam devotes his time to help people less fortunate than himself; Deana was smart and successful enough to buy her own house by the time she was 18... Regardless of the manipulated public opinion the real winners are the outsiders. And don't be too harsh on the presenters. While I agree that BB looks like an A-level project Alice and Jamie are quite good presenters... Probably the best since Russel Brand left BBBM...

    Truly the saddest and lamest BB/BOTS ever. What C5 has done to BB this year is to make it one of the most grimiest trawls through a bunch of the most dis-likeable characters ever (that includes both housemates and presenters). One can assume the production team are a group of teenagers who have yet to learn anything positive about the life around them. This year the bad guy has been saved, excused, promoted and then given 50K. For weeks we've had a very anti-Conman BOTS audience and where were they tonight??? Shipped in were the fawning fandom one could only expect from a dictatorship like this years BB. The biggest mistake this year has been BB/C5/Endemol's complete disrespect for it's core audience. Well done guys, another nail-in-the-coffin for what was once a ground-breaking series, now just a dull-party into immoral and pathetic narcissism. In other words, complete TRASH!

    We are missing the point , this is a game show , peoples minds in that house will be the same as hamsters in a cage , right or wrong Conner won, he gave Luke the chance to press the button , Luke on the other hand looks suicidal and Mabey u should take his shoe laces from him

    @ s... When asked if he'd read the comments online Conor replied "my phone's been broke"... lol... I bet his only access to the internet is through his mobile phone and I bet he calls the internet "facebook"

    Soz Krista!!! It was my fault really, for not telling you that we'd moved... @ s... I think Conor's uncle has repaid whatever favour he owed to his sibling... Now that Conor's got the £50k he won't be blagging from his parents for a few months.... @ Linzie.. I too suffer from the predation of the moderators... I've now learnt to word my opinions in a way that doesn't sound as offensive... Just be a little verbose and it slips under the carpet.

    Also, what did make me laugh was when Becky was asked questions and she tried to be ditzy and funny, it was like tumbleweed, not a sound could be heard..............Feel a bit sorry for her though, as she doesn't really get her time on BOTS, it's all about the Conman

    Morning. Well I did watch the show (BOTS), I'm really confused. Did they vet the audience? No one previously had a good word to say about him. Conmans comment when asked about how Luke S was that "he didn't care". wow what a nice man, so pleased BB rewarded that type of person. I bet his uncle can walk around at work with his head held high. To be fair, Jamie did ask him whether he'd read anything online. Conman paused too long before saying no. He knows exactly what the viewers think of him. That last phone call, the caller (weirdo) wasn't the question that they thought he was going to ask so had no idea of what was going to come out of his mouth so had to end the call fast. They didn't cut him off which led to Jamie shouting over him. That previous forgettable BB housemate that Alice asked the questions to, hasn't even watched the show. I can only assume they got him in because of that as anyone else didn't want to associate themselves with a show with Conman. Have a BOTS with Nina Myscow asking Conman questions. Now that would definately be one to watch

    Trinitrotoluene in the house!

    Still loads of potential tension in the house. Deana's now looking like she'd going to be the new 'spoon'. She didn't get excluded from 4 schools for quietly slipping under the radar. Expect fireworks from her and Ashleigh and Sara. Luke S and Adam will generate tension too. The house is still highly strung, but one misplaced word from meltdown.

    Worst BOTS I've seen. Conor seemed a bit more genuine (so that's what it looks like!) tonight, but that's not hard with 50,000 purloined pounds. Someone else said it was subdued, it was worse than that...it was...odd. Methinks there may have been fall out of some kind. Jamie's response to the caller was strange, as was some of the questioning of Becky and Conor. It seemed as if there were a lot of unasked questions bubbling under the surface. What were they?...I guess we'll never know now.

    This BBBOTS show tonight seemed very subdued.... Was it because you where all working around the elephant in the room?..... Skirting around the Con man, Conor? My, what a shambles. Really, Jamie, Alison, I expected more from you. Has the Con mans family got something on you or what? I don't know what I am to make of any of this? I understand it's a show. I understand BB may change the rules as often and however BB chooses. I understand they where told not to touch the podium or the buzzer before making their decision yet, as others have said before me. The Con man had his hands cupped around that buzzer resting on the podium for the duration....Luke didn't stand a chance. Yet for all the wrong doing Conor has exhibited over the course of the show. He has been rewarded!!!! Poorly done BB and now here tonight on BBBOTS...Still he is applauded for what???? Being a Con man? Shame, shame, shame...How exactly is spending the money on a few parties and a car, a life changing act???? Is it true that this Con man has a history of drug abuse? My, what temptations are really going to be going on in him? I wish his girlfriend well, she will need it...Stay as safe as you can lady, you deserve better. I supposes as with most of my other posts, this one too will be removed...Well hay ho, I tried to speak my mind even if no one wanted to hear it, I tried.

    @ J... Do you think Conor's parents said to their brother... "Conor is 23, unemployed and spends all his job seekers allowance on gym membership and protein shakes. Can you get him on that Big Brother show of yours to keep him out of the house for the summer?"

    It was classic betrayal and Luke S didn't believe Conor had done it. Still,Conors uncle can go back to work now Conor has his money.

    Priceless is right! Luke S is now playing the sympathy card and saying he's too nice. Can't see it working.

    @Bob-Luke S was not the only one to be shafted. Every viewer who votes was shafted too. None of us got to choose who got the money, BB decided. Hope Luke S doesn.t get to vote as he has the pass. But I do agreed that the prize money should remain at £100,000 as they went in expecting that money. I can't feel for Luke S as he was so naive to think anyone would turn down £50,000 for doing nothing. BB are now even giving Conor airtime on BOTS. Conor even said he wants Adam to win. Priceless!

    Ashleigh's comment when Luke S was upset was that Conor was pleased to still see her in there. Wow, she's more concerned about the fact Conor likes her. Conor was not crying with regret, he was ecstatic and crying with happiness. The fact that Conman said to Luke S that him and Ashleigh were his only friend's in there, so he could get through to the final but to total opposite on BBBOTs says a lot about his character. Can't say what I want to say as my comment will be removed

    When Luke S realised that Conor had shafted him he learnt a big lesson. Conor was hovering by the button for ages and as soon as Luke S lifted his hand he hit the button. Wrong team Luke S! LukeS tried to vent with Adam (not a good idea). He now realises he has lost the game and the money unless BB decide to let him win. Is cutting the money down to £50,000 not a breach of contract? I think I agree with @Ell that it is. Even the HMs have worked out that he was basically given the money and has even come out early. New producers next year please

    I wonder if Becky has really thanked her sister for repeating what Luke A said during the nominations. Her reaction to that was the main reason she was evicted. Sisterly love eh

    Pretty face? Conor looks like a charicature of Wayne Rooney carved from a potato. Aaron wasn't an idiot like the insiders (or 'insniders' to borrow from Krista) and I imagine he would have been on the side of Outsiders if he was here this year.
