Pandora's Box is supposed to be a game changer. In the most recent US season, it made the final 6 in 3 pairs of 2 and ended up changing who was up for eviction and everything. In the other seasons, normally the person who opens it can be punished or rewarded and the rest of the house can be rewarded or punished (depending on what the person who opened it got). I hope Pandora's Box can change the game for Finland but we wont know until it is opened.
Ok. Thanks. Of course I could've just googled it, but I was too tired last night.

Anyway...Pandora's box in the Finnish edition works like this: the subscribers of 24/7 live feeds will have the opportunity to have a say in the events in the house. This week is the first time this will happen. And it's connected to Pandora's box. Which also will be opened 4 times during the season. We are voting for the HM we'd like to open the box. The HM then has the choice of either get something bad for oneself and good for everyone else. Or good for oneself and bad for everyone else.

Also there's a fake weekly task going on. The task this week is Ninjas. They have to count all the ninjas that will appear either on the TV-screens or anywhere in or out the house. The real task however is a secret mission for Salar. He has to hide real cash around the house without anyone else noticing anything. Another HM will get a secret counter-mission to find the stashes. Of course without anyone else noticing.
Lost a planet Master Obi Wan has. How embarrassing.

I though Terhi would be more popular by her strange looks but seems not  :-\ What is she doing in the house?
And.. how did she split her tongue?  ???


She's not really that interesting. And is complaining about the lack of cigarettes. Constantly.

And she told her tongue was split with a surgical knife.


Split with a surgical knife by who?  ???


This I don't know. I think a professional of some sort.


She has told the story a couple of times in the house but the only detail I can remember is she said it's definitely not something you should try at home. Oh, and the story goes she had to pull or tear apart the two lobes of her tongue herself while it was being cut. (Ouch!) She can also flick the two tips/lobes of her tongue independently so that they cross each other.

Unfortunately, she seems like a fairly ordinary person otherwise... and a bit dull even. She has been telling her housemates some crazy/funny stories of her undertakings in the outside world with her friends but hasn't done much anything worth mentioning in the house, except for complaining about lack of cigarettes and maybe behaving in a bit selfish way, in some regards.

The BBF7 house got quite a bit drama last week.

A week ago, the housemates prepared for an ordinary Sunday night's eviction show. They thought they were all up for eviction. Near the end of the show, however, they were announced that the televoting has now ended and lines have been closed, but the viewers were voting on a free immunity ticket - all the way to the final week - for one of the HMs, not on eviction.

The housemates were never announced who the winner was (Mikael); they were just told one of them has won the immunity. Directly after this announcement, BB ordered Ben to move to the special spare room in the house and instructed him to lock the two sound-proof doors behind him. The other HMs, who were still sitting on the couches, took this as an obvious sign of Ben being the winner. Ben found a bottle of sparkling wine and a bouquet of roses in the room. There was also something to eat on the table. He sat down on a bean-bag chair, waiting for further instructions, and he was obviously thinking, at least for a while, that he had won the immunity.

While Ben was locked in the room, the live eviction show ended. The other HMs were soon ordered to go outside in the yard... and they were then instructed to leave the yard through a door in the back which leads to the outdoor task area. They had no time for any preparations, so they were wearing their Sunday best with makeup and all. In the task area, they then found out they have to "mine copper" from a huge pile of sand (there were small copper bits and pieces hidden in the sand) and play chess against Big Brother where each piece is some broken recyclable househould appliance, also containing copper.

The task area featured a "recycling station", set apart in the back, and there were tools and clothes and other gear (safety glasses, steel-capped boots, helmets, overalls) for dismantling the "chess pieces" they won in the game of chess. They also had shovels for "mining" the copper from the pile of sand. But they had to sleep outdoors, in sleeping bags, under a frail canopy with no walls. BB provided them with food and (second-hand) clothes, and they also had a microwave oven and a range at their disposal in the task area. And most of them (but not all) also got their suitcases which had been packed in preparation for the possible eviction back in the house and then locked in the storage room before the eviction show began.

During the time the other HMs entered the task area, Ben was alone in the house, locked in the spare room, still thinking he might have won the immunity. Then, suddenly, four new female HM candidates entered the room through the spare room's private diary room. (This was probably when Ben figured out he is not likely to have won the immunity, but he was clearly glowing for a while when he was still alone, thinking he might have won it.)

Ben and the new girls were kept in the room for a while. They used that time for introducing themselves to each other and for drinking the wine and enjoying the food catered for them on the table. When they were finally allowed to leave the spare room, they found, bafflingly, an empty BB house with no other housemates. Most of the beds in the bedroom had also been removed. Neither Ben nor the four new girls knew anything about the fate of the other housemates.

It was soon revealed to Ben that the four new female housemates are not housemates proper but housemate candidates who need to woo Ben in every possible way to win his favor and trust, competing against each other. And at the end of the week, Ben is required to promote one of them to a real housemate, and the other three girls will have to leave. As has been reported earlier, Ben chose Veera and the other three girls (Liana, Kaisa and Netta) were evicted after only four days in the house. But those four days involved lots of drinking, partying, great meals, etc. and the girls had to pamper Ben in many ways and also sleep in the same bed with him. What is more, Ben was also allowed to invite them, one at a time, to the spare room, which had now been turned into a private bedroom for him, with a queen-size bed.

OK, all good and well, but Ben has an inside-the-house love affair with another HM, Amanda. And Amanda spent the week camping in the outdoor task area with the other HMs. Before last week's task, Ben and Amanda slept together in the same bed and were often seen caressing and kissing each other and doing... who knows what.

During Ben's special "harem" week, he slept with each of the four new girls... not quite that way, but still, doing similar things with them as he has been doing with Amanda. Including kissing, hugging, petting and - at least with one of the girls - fingering and a handjob. (Or something like that. It's hard to tell exactly as they were covered by a duvet. But the nightshot IR pictures and the accompanying audio were clear enough you can definitely say there was something more going on than just sleeping.)

Now, after a couple of days, Big Brother started showing video clips of these events to Amanda in the diary room of the outdoor task area, and she was allowed to tell about the things she saw to the other housemates. Quite predictably, all hell broke loose among the women of the house in the task area, and not too many men were amused about Ben's undertakings, either. Ben was seen as cheating on Amanda. Amanda broke in tears and was comforted by the other women.

Soon after this, BB called Mikael (whose love interest in the house is Annika) in the diary room of the task area and assigned him a special task: he had to get drunk in the diary room, leave the task area through the backdoor of the diary room (blindfolded), and re-enter the house, joining Ben and the four new girls for a couple of hours. Ben and the four female HM candidates were having a bubble-bath party in the outdoor jacuzzi while Mikael joined them. Ben was happy to see him, not knowing about the fate of the other HMs but Mikael was not allowed to tell him anything about them at all, and especially nothing about Amanda. He was just brought there for the party, no questions please.

After some four hours in the party, Mikael disappeared through the main diary room of the house and re-entered the outdoor task area through the task area's diary room. While he was away, Annika (his love interest in the house) was already seen crying and imagining the worst as she thought those new "vamps" in the house will seduce Mikael, too. Again, Mikael was not allowed to tell the other HMs anything about what was going on in the house.

The next day, Amanda and Annika were suddenly instructed to leave the task area through the diary room and they were led into the house, blindfolded, only to find themselves in the spare room's diary room. When they entered the house, they found the four female HM candidates in there, waiting for their movie night to begin. Even though both Annika and Amanda knew about what had been going on in the house, they introduced themselves nicely to the other girls and joined them for watching a movie. (It was a romantic comedy called "No strings attached", by the way, if I recall correctly. BB's sense of irony.) Ben was not allowed to take part in this: the spare room was locked and he was instructed to stay on the other side of the house, so he did not know about Amanda visiting the house. After the movie was over (it was a bit awkward, as the two girls had their smelly task area clothes on and had not been allowed to take a shower, and the other four girls were wearing their best and had make-up on and everyhing), Amanda and Annika were ordered to leave the house through the diary room again, and were returned to the task area.

When the HMs were, by the end of the week, finally allowed to leave the damp, cold and rainy task area, BB had also been showing them some random video clips of Ben and the four new girls publicly on a video monitor, also located in the task area. The housemates, however, made a deal that this is between Amanda and Ben, and they will not directly confront Ben unless Amanda wants to make it public, and Amanda wanted to see how Ben will explain himself to her.

When the HMs re-entered the house, they found, to their surprise, only Ben and Veera there, having a romantic dinner provided by BB (this time with George Michael's "Careless Whisper" blaring on the loudspeakers - another ironic jab from BB?) - not four new girls as they thought. The other three girls had been evicted a couple of hours earlier. Ben explained his task to them, and the other housemates told him about their task in the outdoor task area. Amanda, however, did not hug Ben or approach him, for obvious reasons. Ben noticed this immediately, confronted her, and soon found out about the video clips.

Ben tried to put sugar-coating on everything and explained how nothing worth mentioning has happened: some kissing and backrubs, yes, but that's all, and it was part of the task. And OK, there was this one girl who was sexually aggressive and tried to fondle his private parts but he held her back all the time. He even explained that BB has probably faked some clips to make him look bad in Amanda's eyes. To the disbelief of the viewers, Amanda seemed to buy this all, and was soon seen hugging and kissing Ben again. Everything seemed to go back to normal.

Now, this week, BB has suddenly displayed more nightly video clips of Ben and the female HM candidates on the living room TV. Everyone got to see Ben kissing Veera, and Ben in bed with another girl, Netta, having an exchange with her about penetration. (Ben asked if it's OK, but Netta did not allow that.) In one of the shown clips, Ben is in the jacuzzi with three of the new girls and exclaims, when asked about Amanda, that he's not really missing Amanda at all. (See the latter part of this daily show.)

This time, Amanda was clearly hurt - although she apparently does not want to display much emotion outside and wasn't really crying - and she no longer believes Ben has been telling her the thruth. However, they still made up, after lots of persuasion and apologies from Ben's part, even though Amanda said if this had happened in the outside world, she would have erased Ben's number from her phone and stop seeing him. For one reason or the other, though, Amanda and Ben are, once again, back to their normal cuddly-fondly-huggy behavior, which is a bit baffling to most viewers after all these revelations... except for the fact that Ben, Amanda, Salar and Tamer belong to a secret alliance in the house which pulls together when giving their nomination points... and maybe Amanda did not want to leave that alliance or turn Ben against herself.

So there you have it. Some soap opera we have this year... but at least there are lots of things going on!

(To Veera's defense, the only thing she has been doing with Ben in the bed is kissing and hugging and embracing... and she even said to Ben, on the record, that they can't really keep kissing like that... as she might fall for him for his looks, but not now as she knows of Ben's interest in Amanda. A video clip of this piece of pillow talk was also shown to all the housemates - including Amanda - so they hold no grudges against her. After all, she was only kissing. It was one of the other girls, Netta, who did more, but as Ben did not choose her, she was evicted among the other "failed" HM candidates.)

Needless to say, Ben's popularity has taken quite a hit among the viewers, and his housemates do not think too highly on him, either. It will be interesting to see if he will be nominated for eviction this week, especially as he is also running the largest (secretly scheming) nomination points voting alliance in the house and has formerly tried to make lots of personal/mutual non-voting deals with the other housemates.

All in all, Ben is one of the dirtiest "players" in the house right now, along with Salar. On many occasions, he has also been knowingly badmouthing other housemates for things they never did. The unexpected thing is, though, that Amanda chose to stay by his side and continue their close kissing/hugging relationship. But her diary room sessions reveal her to be quite disillusioned about Ben now... so maybe she's only doing that in order to safeguard herself against nominations.


Here are the (most) relevant daily shows. The orange dates are links to the official site and the video clips available there:

9/11: Live eviction show with no eviction: the housemates are told one of them will get immunity that will last up until the final week; Ben is ordered to the spare room; the new female HM candidates enter the house.

9/12: Daily show compiling events from the previous day; the housemates enter the task area; Ben is left in the house alone with the four new girls.

9/14: Amanda getting invited to the diary room of the outdoor task area... to watch a video compilation of Ben's doings in the house, and of the new girls (of which Amanda and the other HMs were not aware before this); Amanda coming back from the diary room and telling the other HMs about Ben's undertakings in the house; Amanda's reaction; Mikael taken out of the task area through the diary room to visit the house, getting drunk there, crashing Ben's bubble bath party, then being returned to the task area; Annika getting a nervous breakdown while imagining what Mikael will do in the house with the new girls.

9/15: Amanda and Annika visiting the spare room in the house, meeting the new girls and watching a movie with them, then being returned to the task area.

9/16: Ben promoting Veera to a real housemate; the other girls being evicted; the other housemates returning to the house from the task area; Ben trying to explain to Amanda what has been going on while she was away.

Pretty much so.

As far as the Finnish BB fan forum discussions go, many viewers thought the whole set-up was... awkward.

Apparently the new girls were only told about them having to compete against each other at a fairly late moment before entering the house. But after they were inside the house, BB kept constantly reminding them about the fact. For example, Veera and Liana got invited to the diary room and were shown a video clip of Ben's and Netta's night together - unbeknownst to Ben & Netta, of course - and BB simply told them "the game is on". (Netta was the most aggressive one of the four, and went furthest with Ben, and the clip was of their wildest night. Then again, Ben didn't choose Netta in the end...)

F*uck Ben!  >:(


None of the girls went that far... but it was not for Ben's lack of trying! :D (Although I guess mutual manual stimulation with Netta counts as well in this case.  8))

(Check out the links to the relevant daily shows in my previous post to this thread... I edited it a bit and added them in. I guess they should be viewable outside Finland? I'm not sure though.)

Kim Sainio, the head director, today openly confessed to a newspaper that the last two seasons were crap. And that with no hype he can say this season will be the best one yet. Though, that really is a matter of opinion. For me this season is already the best.

Salar, the scheming Iranian-born guy, got nominated for eviction by BB himself this morning. This was, at least nominally, a punishment for disregarding the microphone rules one time too many... but it likely also had something to do with Salar's threatening behavior towards another housemate, Sebastian, the day before yesterday.

So what happened the day before yesterday?

Salar got mad at Sebastian who farted in Salar's face. (True story. You can view a video clip of the incident here. :P) He then angrily chased Sebastian around the dining table, seemingly agitated and with an intention of doing something violent to him. During the chase, Salar aggressively grabbed a chair and threw it on the floor. When he was called to the diary room to cool off, he also ripped his microphone transmitter belt off and tossed it on the floor instead of hanging it on a hook on the wall by the diary room door (as is the usual procedure in BBF when entering the diary room.)



Salar, just like all nominated housemates, will now need to wear a red armband at all times until his possible eviction on Sunday night. The nominations are still going on so it isn't yet clear who are the other housemates who will be up for eviction against him.

Since Salar is one of the masterminds in the largest nomination-points voting alliance in the house, his secret co-allies (Ben, Amanda and Tamer) are now planning to save him by giving their nomination points to Terhi (the pierced girl with red dreadlock attachments and split tongue) and Tanja (another female housemate). They all think Terhi and Tanja are "weaker" housemates than Salar and will get less votes from the viewers for keeping them in the house.

Salar's punishment means is he is not allowed to give nomination points to other housemates this week. As Salar is already nominated, other housemates also can't give their nomination points to him. Additionally, Salar is excluded from the lifeline competition for the nominees. The winner of this weekly competition will have to exchange themselves, or another nominee, for a housemate who wasn't originally nominated. Last but not least, whoever the winner of the lifeline competition will be can't altruistically exchange Salar for another housemate: Salar is going to remain as nominee no matter what.

The nominees for this week's eviction are: Salar, Tanja, Terhi and Tamer. All of them are wearing red armbands now as a sign of their status in the house. The lifeline competition will follow next. As described above, Salar is not allowed to take part in it and he's not too happy about that.

The lifeline competition is different each week. This time, there's a special hot bench on which nominees will sit, one at a time. Big Brother will play some music. As the music is playing, the nominee sitting on the hot bench will have to eat as much stick ice cream as possible, as fast as possible. When the music stops, the finished ice cream sticks are counted. The winner will be the nominee with the largest count of finished sticks.

Tamer finished 6 sticks (one was probably incomplete, so maybe only 5 will count), Terhi 6, Tanja 8. The winner hasn't been annouced yet but it's likely to be Tanja unless there was some breach of the rules. (Tanja might have briefly lifted her bottom from the bench at one point... we'll see how BB is going to rule on that matter.)

Edit: OK, Tanja won - it's now official - and got a green armband, a mark of a "saved" nominee. She will have to do the exchange later on. At the moment of this writing, she's in the bedroom discussing the difficulty of choosing her replacement with some of the other girls. She's been crying a bit as well.

Tanja chose to save herself and nominate Mikael in her place. As Mikael has a free pass to the final only Salar, Terhi and Tamar are up for eviction this week, although I assume that all the housemates including Mikael will also think Mikael is up for eviction.

So did Tanja nominated Mikael because she dislikes him or because she suspects he is immune anyway?

Tanja suspects Mikael might indeed be the one who won the immunity. And even if he didn't, she thinks he's popular enough to survive the eviction. Also, Tanja is quite sure Mikael gave her two nomination points earlier today, although I'm not quite sure how she came to that conclusion and what might be Mikael's reasoning for that. (Even viewers do not know who nominated whom yet. Rundown of the awarded nomination points will be published in 25 hours from now.)

In other news today, Mikael got a secret mission: as he's now up for eviction (although he really isn't because he's immune), he needs to pretend he doesn't want to spend time with Annika for the couple of next days, and isn't allowed to sleep in the same bed with her or kiss or stroke her or pay her close attention. The reasoning he must give to Annika about this is that he suspects the viewers don't appreciate couples spending too much time with each other so he wants to take some distance until Sunday's eviction. If he remains in the house, then it's a sign the viewers don't mind their relationship and they can then continue as a couple.

Annika didn't take this in a good way. Upon hearing the news that Mikael doesn't want to sleep next to her any more or show any public affection towards her, she retreated to the bedroom and started crying, feeling betrayed. She was being comforted by Amanda and Terhi who are both now thinking Mikael is a prick for doing something like that merely to secure his survival in the eviction vote.

Some video clips:

Mikael getting assigned the task (OK, no video here, just a picture from the diary room):

Annika's reaction (doesn't include the bedroom scene, though... they'll probably save that for the daily):

Note: In the first picture, you can see Terhi's silicone "brass knuckles" implant in the back of her palm.

Any chance that Terhi will survive considering Salar/Tamer are nominated so maybe the votes will be split between these 2?

It's really difficult to say, things are kind of uncertain right now. If minus votes were allowed (as they were in many earlier BBF seasons!) the evictee would be Salar, no doubt about that, since he has gathered lots of bad karma during the last few weeks. But since we only have plus votes this year, Salar may well have stronger chances of surviving than either Terhi or Tamer.

Salar is disliked because he's a scheming loudmouth bully who has also showed some potential for flipping in a violent way... but at the same time, he's a somewhat comical character who brings lots of action to the season, so he also has supporters. Because there are no minus votes, those actively disliking Salar will need to get tactical and vote for Terhi or Tamer even if they didn't think too highly about them, either. Which is something people might or might not want to do.

At the beginning of the season, people thought Tamer could easily be one of the winning candidates because he was very popular in another reality show, "Travel Guides"  (Tamer was working as a travel guide for Finnish tourist groups in Alanya, Turkey at the time)... but in the BB house, he has been very different from his professional self: most of the time a very quiet loner fading into the shadows... and he has also appeared quite serious and cranky at times, couple of times getting into some serious conflicts/arguments with some of the women in the house. That said, Tamer has done better for the last week or so, participating much more in the discussions and action, so he might have gained some popularity now. He's still not a central character by any means, though.

Despite her rough appearance, Terhi is not a too interesting person... but she managed to beat Oskar in last week's eviction, anyway, so she might have a chance against Tamer, too... who knows?

It's Terhi vs. Tamer I guess... unless Salar has really come down in popularity due to threatening Sebastian a couple of days ago, and for a couple of other things. My personal bet is on Terhi having to leave the house but I admit I could well be completely off the mark about that. If Salar were to be evicted, it would be a fairly surprising result to me... but interesting and game-changing too.

Edit: For what it's worth, Tanja's prediction is the evictee will likely be Tamer.

One of the housemates will be ordered to open Pandora's Box on Saturday. The options are:

1. A good consequence for the housemate who opens the box, bad consequences for the other housemates.

The housemate who opens the box will get a luxury dinner for two. They can choose whoever they want to dine with them. These two housemates will also get a private night in the bedroom. The other housemates will be locked into the small spare room with no beds for the night and they will only get crisp bread and water to eat and drink.

2. A bad consequence for the housemate who opens the box, good consequences for the other housemates.

The reverse of the above. The housemate who opens the box will still need to choose another housemate to accompany them.

In both cases, the housemate who opens the box will not be told that whoever gets to spend their night in the spare room with no beds will also be accompanied by some mice and grasshoppers. (Minna, the visually impaired girl, has some sort of fobia of mice, and I'd guess the other girls will not be too fond of the idea either. It remains to be seen whether those will be actual mice and grasshoppers though...)

Annika has been quite sad, upset and emotional about Mikael's behavior today as well. (Yesterday, Mikael got a secret mission from BB: He needs to avoid any affectionate contact with Annika until Sunday's eviction. He explained this to Annika by saying he needs to take some distance from her because the viewers probably don't appreciate couples kissing and sleeping together too much, so that's why they can no longer share a bed and he will spend more time with other housemates - in order not to be evicted on Sunday.)

Annika can't understand this line of reasoning - how staying apart for mere two days would make any difference concerning Mikael's support among the voting viewers? Mikael's strange behavior and the likely reasons behind it has been a hot topic among the women of the house under the smoking canopy.



Meanwhile, Annika has been crying a bit more. She is trying to sleep over it and has found Ben's and Amanda's company comforting. Annika feels it would be a lot better if Mikael just said he's no longer interested, instead of playing games like this with her.  :-[

Okay, Pandora's Box was opened. Salar chose a good consequence for himself, bad consequences for his housemates. He got a luxury dinner with Minna while the other housemates got locked into the spare room where they need to spend their night accompanied by mice and grasshoppers. At least Annika, Terhi and Veera were crying and hysterical about the insects. Getting them into the room took a good while of persuasion. In the end, Sebastian had to carry Annika and Terhi through the spare room to its private bathroom, which is safe from the critters:



Salar is pissed off as he didn't know what the exact consequences would be and had to watch and listen to the other housemates screaming and crying because of his decision. Minna is also quite upset on behalf of her housemates... but otherwise very happy about the fact that Salar chose her to accompany him for the night... as this means she can sleep on the other side of the house in the normal bedroom with Salar. (Minna has a serious phobia of mice.)

Anyone that is selfish enough to allow all other housemates to be punished in order to get a personal reward must be incredibly stupid. Especially when they are currently facing a public vote. After this Salar shouldn't really be surprise if he is evicted tonight, and even if by some miracle he survives, he will now surely be nominated for 2 points by all the housemates for the foreseeable future.

Even though many of the housemates spent some time in the mouse-and-grasshopper-infested room before trying to sleep, only Mikael, Stefan, Tanja and Sebastian actually slept there. The rest crammed into the relative safety of the small adjacent bathroom and tried to get some sleep on its hard tile flooring. Those in the main room were on the watch and trying to keep the critters out of the bathroom.

Salar's reasoning for making the selfish choice he did was that a) he's up for eviction and b) he wants to get all the good experiences the house can offer to him before he leaves c) he thought the good consequence he chose would have been something far better than merely a nice dinner (maybe an exemption from the eviction vote or something), and d) he thought that whatever the bad thing might be, it's easier for 13 people to suffer through it together than just one person.

The other housemates have not assigned him much blame for this night yet, although some of them said they would have made a different choice in his position. If Salar survives the eviction tonight, it'll be interesting to see whether the other HMs will actually start nominating him now. Until now, he's been quite a popular character inside the house despite some of his antics so the other HMs might find it difficult to vote him. And the housemates who do not belong to any scheming nomination-points alliance seem to mostly want out, at this point, the quiet loner types, such as Tamer and Minna, who have not made close friends with anyone and do not always actively participate in whatever craziness it is that is currently going on in the house.

Today, Veera and Terhi were having a private discussion under the smoking canopy. They both agreed it would be a very surprising result if either Salar or Mikael would be evicted - and it would make it difficult to make any sense of what's going on any longer - and hoped it would be Tamer.

It appears Mikael's secret mission - avoiding Annika and not talking to her - has now ended. They were both called to the diary room which caused some speculation among the other HMs. But they still went their separate ways when they came back, with serious faces, saying they can't discuss it. According to a news article on the official BBF website, Mikael's secret task was already revealed to Annika in the diary room, but they can apparently only tell about it to the other HMs during the live eviction show. They have both behaved in a happier and more relaxed way now, despite of not making any intimate contact. The original information given to the viewers, and Mikael himself, was that if he succeeds in the task, he will be allowed to present Annika with a surprise gift bought by BB during the live eviction show.

This is terrible to say, but this punishment still probably beats having to spend an hour locked in a room with Jessie from BBUS.

The person in charge of working out the percentages at BB Finland this year needs to go back to school and re-take their maths exams. Last week the percentages added up to 99.31% and this week they add up to 99.00%.

LOL, I thought the same last week, and I thought the percentages were wrong so I decided to watch the live show, but the same percentages were given in the show.

I don't think it's hard to do the percentages right  ::)

The percentages might not add up to 100% for two reasons I can think of: either it's because of rounding up the figures, which is unlikely since there's almost a percent missing on the first one and exactly a percent tonight. The second would be, that not all of the votes were countable for some reason. So they left those votes out alltogether. Whatever it is, the margin is still well within the acceptable error margin here. In any vote.
