Why was Matti automatically nominated? The official site says rule breaking - what did he do?According to different news from the official website, he was nominated because he talked about the outside
Also, who do you think will go tonight. I think we will lose one of the new boys.
But I guess our Finnish friends can explain this better
He slipped that Juno (the rap artist guy who Amanda had been seeing outside before entering the house) had been in the headlines because of his connection to Amanda.
I'm pretty sure Matti never actually applied for the show (he didn't seem particularly excited about being there and I never heard any explanation or motivation for why he would have applied in the first place) but was probably invited to stir up things for a few weeks... probably originally because of his pumped up body and because they wanted him to target Salar... but had to change their plans and make his role more generic as Salar was evicted on the same night he entered the house. They probably lured him in by offering better money for his services than the meager compensation the regular housemates get.
While he was still in the house, Matti kept stating his direct "personal opinions" about the other housemates... usually in a somewhat rude and unexpectedly frank way. Many of the housemates got offended about this, but the things he said actually sounded more like direct hints on what the viewers in general consider the main weaknesses of the original housemates. I find it hard to believe Matti would have been allowed to do that if he were an ordinary intruder who has just applied for the show the regular way and entered the house without being instructed to do that.
Also, he's a classic body builder and participates in competitions. BBF is not really an inviting environment for someone like him. He had no chance of exercising properly (there's no gym in the house) and he didn't get enough food, much less the proper kind of food. It's impossible to maintain your muscle mass there and he was hungry most of the time. It would seem odd of anyone with a serious interest in body building actually wanting to come there in the first place, except for a few weeks, and with a proper compensation.
I'm not saying Matti couldn't have stayed as a regular housemate for as long as he wouldn't be nominated and voted out of the house by the viewers. Maybe he could have changed his status and behavior to a regular housemate later on if he wanted to, after his initial "stir-up time" was up. But as it is, for these first couple of weeks, I think he was just planted there by the production and never had a genuine desire to actually remain in the house... and he probably got special guidance and instructions in the confession room on how to behave towards the other housemates. He enjoyed some parts of his stay (the "Slaves to TV" weekly task, interaction with the Norwegian exchange housemate Siv Anita), but otherwise, it was probably just a one-of-a-kind type work assignment for him, and scripted in such way he'll be the likely evictee, anyway (because of the rude remarks he had to make), or it was assumed he'll be leaving voluntarily. The BBF house actually had shortage of food during most of his stay as if to test his limits.
That's my tin-foil hat theory anyway... as too many things about Matti smell a bit fishy.
Rami, who entered the house at the same time as Matti, was likely brought in for a similar purpose: to stir up things a bit and to balance things out by undermining Salar's strong position and status in the house... even though that was not meant to be as Salar was then evicted. Once Rami got in, he has also been making similar very direct assessments of the weaknessess of the original housemates, directly to their face... maybe less so than Matti, but still... so it seems both Matti and Rami had the same initial task and guidance from the confession room. But Rami appears to have had more motivation for actually staying in the house, and he has maybe said his opinions in a bit more rounded way. Also, if Rami loses some of his muscle mass in the house it's probably not going to be that big a deal for him as it would have been for Matti.
So whatever scripted secrets there are about Matti and Rami - never to be revealed to the viewers - and whichever way these two guys originally got on the show, Rami has been the one who has been behaving a bit more like someone who is genuinely motivated to remain there and who might even had sent in an application himself.
(24/7 viewers already know both Oskar and Janica never applied for the show on their own initiative but were invited by the producers. They're not supposed to reveal these things but they've both said it aloud in the house. It's likely at least Janica gets compensated for her stay better than an average housemate since otherwise it wouldn't really make economical sense for her as a separated mother with two kids. Getting some special compensation would also easily explain her willingness to put on... ahem... a personally involving show at times. Not to say Janica wouldn't be an interesting person and a good choice for a housemate.)
