Big Brother 8

 

Daily Star writes:

The 20-year-old vowed to take the winnings “down Lakeside…shopping” after hearing he had won the three-month contest.

Twins Amanda and Sam Marchant came second – despite a record £5m wager on them to triumph – with Liam,  who had already £100,000 during the show, in third.

Love-rat Ziggy Lichman – who broke stunner Chanelle Hayes’ heart during the reality TV hit – finished fourth.

“I’ve had a riot. More than a riot,” Brian told host Davina McCall.

He also pledged to date dizzy twin Amanda, after confessing he found her “more attractive” than Bianca Gascgoine – his pre-show idol.

It came despite Neo-Nazi nutters earlier targeting the final in a sick bid to stop Brian from winning.

The racists were furious over nice guy Bri’s relationship with Amanda and were desperate to turn fans against him. Extreme right-wing bloggers posted vicious racist comments about him on the internet.

One loony forum user even suggested that Brian and twin Amanda, 19, were not real contestants at all.

Instead, the web user claimed Big Brother had hired ACTORS in order to promote “inter-racial relationships”.

The hate messages appeared, among others, on the website American Renaissance – billed as promoting “a variety of white racial positions”.

One warped user, calling himself LOGIC, ranted that relationships between black and white people are “sick and evil.” Another anonymous blogger describes the Big Brother romance as “unnatural” and “sordid”.

Communications giant Orange’s website has its own Big Brother section, where further racist comments about Amanda and Brian’s relationship had appeared.

They had been removed last night, but other forums were buzzing with anger at the “nasty and bigoted” filth that had been appearing.

One user called Jeremy fumed: “This is supposed to be a discussion about an event on Big Brother. What is a real shame is that there are so many bigots out there that would use this platform to air their hatred.”

Even bloggers on the official Big Brother website expressed their shock over racist comments they had seen.

One user wrote: “It is 2007 and I am surprised we still have racism going on.

“For all those racist people – grow up and get with the present day. Brian is great. Black or white, it doesn’t matter.”

A spokesman for Big Brother said: “As viewers are aware, Channel 4 does not condone racism of any sort.”

It all proved irrelevant though, as Brian proved one of the most popular contestants in the show’s eight-year history.

obsessmuch? says nothing can ever run smoothly…always has to be some racism problem, so annoying.
