The Thursday column: Beware the BB chaos theory.

Byline: Bruce Millington

THIS time next week we Big Brother devotees will have got to know 12 new people intimately.

We will know which ones pick their nose, which put their hand down their strides as they stagger to the toilet first thing in the morning, which are lazy, which are ugly and which are likely to be subjected to vicious street attacks on account of their awfulness.

One thing we are unlikely to know, however, is who will win. A pal of mine once said that the golden rule in shows like this is that you should write down every opinion you form in the first week and bet the other way.

Jade is the best example of a contestant who looked odds-on to be first for eviction but lasted ages, while Fash provided further evidence of the wisdom of refraining from opposing those whom the public seems to dislike initially.

My advice this year would be to bear in mind that reality TV shows are not policed for the good of punters and that it is perfectly possible that something crazy could happen this year to plunge the market into chaos. Let's hope not. I like punting on Big Brother.
