It's that time again. And as everyone is still anxiously awaiting the start of the season I thought it would be fun to predict the winner, right here, right now. I know I've only got a seven percent chance of being right but I can't resist. Enjoy!
My predicted (most likely completely wrong) order of eviction:
First Out: Mike
Occupation: Painting Contractor
From: Three Lakes, Wisconsin
Verdict: Wisconsin has never seen the sort of the people who will be released upon Mike. He'll get a boisterous few days and then an exit card.
Second Out: Kail
Occupation: Business Owner
From: McKenzie Bridge, Oregon
Verdict: Owning a business is great in the real world, where ambition and leadership are valued. In the Big Brother world the ability to adapt is the most prized possession so my gut tells me she'll be frustrated. Also, people from Oregon are waaaay too nice!
Third Out: Carol
From: Lawrence, Kansas
Verdict:If this is a "rivals" themed show Jessica would be the obvious guess as her enemy. Expect one of them to have the other evicted early.
Fourth Out: Jessica
From: Haysville, Kansas
Verdict: Sadly, once vanquishing her foe Jessica will realize she's the only small town girl left. Bye bye Jessica.
Fifth Out: Zach
Occupation: Graphic Designer
From: Burbank, California
Verdict: Zach looks a little bit annoying. The smile is just too crazy. And as a graphic designer I see him being very in tune to "art" and very out of tune with "people."
Sixth Out: Jameka
Occupation: School Counselor
From: Waldorf, Maryland
Verdict: At first glance it seems like working as a school counselor would prep you for Big Brother. Great listening skills, great awareness. However, I see Jameka getting caught playing the middle.
Seventh Out: Nick
Occupation: Former Pro Football Player
From: Kimball, Minnesota
Verdict: What does Nick do these days besides being a "former" football player? I see the kid from Kimball making some noise in the physical challenges but going down to more conniving types.
Eighth Out: Joe
From: Chicago, Illinois
Verdict: Is the term receptionist still used? I think Joe will be one of the people everyone likes, but if he's as approachable as his picture suggests than he'll become a clearinghouse for gossip. And eventually he'll make the wrong enemy.
Ninth Out: Dick
Occupation: Bar Manager
From: Los Angeles, California
Verdict: Is Dick the father of Daniele? That's the rumor. I think Dick will do better than people initially think, he'll be loud - but there will be a method to his madness. Bar managers know people, and this will get Dick within striking distance.
Tenth Out: Dustin
Occupation: Shoe Salesman
From: Chicago, Illinois
Verdict: Dustin is a good looking kid and the buzz is he might have a rival in Joe. Dustin is good enough to outlast all but one of the guys, but a group of united women will take him out as the game's final stages play out.
Fourth Place: Amber
Occupation: Cocktail Waitress
From: Las Vegas, Nevada
Verdict: I think having lived in Vegas is a distinct advantage. Sin City attracts all sort of lunatics, and the environment is continually changing. Plus Amber delivers drinks for a living, the "fun girl" type can go far in this game (as last year proved).
Third Place: Eric
Occupation: Talent Management Assistant
From: New York City, New York
Verdict: "Talent Management" includes dealing with the most fragile of egos. Plus NYC has probably thrown plenty of different situations at young Eric. He's not flashy, but I see him sneaking his way to the final three.
Runner Up: Daniele
From: Huntington Beach, California
Verdict: She'll use every trick in the book. The problem is those tricks will come back to haunt her in front of an angry jury.
Big Brother 8 Winner: Jen
From: Beverly Hills
Verdict: I can't think of a better way to prepare for the Big Brother household than nannying. Who else deals with immaturity and nervous breakdowns so often? She seems like she'll be able to charm the guys and get along with the gals. The perfect formula for victory.
I'll be readjusting these rankings once I get to know everyone a little better. Don't forget the premiere is next Thursday!
