Big Brother Conspiracy Theories Smacks Of Being Bad Sports

South Africans were most unhappy about the Big Brother Amplified eviction of actor Luclay Misoya which signaled victory for Nigerian model Karen Igho and Zimbabwean pilot Wendall Parson in Sunday’s finale.

According to reports on Monday police had to intervene to calm the crowd who attended the event in Johannesburg.

Conspiracy theories and claims of rigging – because Nigeria picked up its 3rd straight winner and Zimbabwe’s competitor was too quiet – are not only misguided but fail to factor in the voting for the show.

At the outset people must accept that KPMG are a highly reputable accounting firm who would not entertain any voting irregularities. They have a global image to preserve and there is not enough money from all the Big Brother shows worldwide combined that would tempt them into tarnishing their reputation.

** Correction [Big Brother results were audited by Alexander Forbes - just as reputable as KPMG our apology for the error]

Besides that why would they care who the winners or losers are it has no bearing on them whatsoever?

If that is a given then so too is the system.

Evictions are based upon countries not individuals of which Nigeria only has one vote.

Accordingly if Nigeria keeps winning and Zimbabwe featuring strongly it means that their candidate selection is superior and nothing else. Other countries have just as big a vote as both so the question is who is picking the contestants in a country not why does Nigeria keep winning.

Population is irrelevant with Nigeria having the same voting power as Botswana.

Next is the voting itself.

Big Brother always releases the results and last night was not unusual in that regard.

Here They Are

Karen : 6 country votes – Nigeria, Angola, Rest of Africa, Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania

Wendall: 4 country votes – Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Kenya

Luclay: 2 country votes – South Africa, Botswana

Lomwe: 1 country vote – Malawi

Sharon O: 1 country vote – Uganda

Hanni: 1 country vote – Ethiopia

Vina: 0 Country Votes.

If fans in South Africa, Uganda or anywhere else are unhappy with the voting then they should be asking why, for example, Zambia backed Zimbabwe’s competitor when he was of limited entertainment value – in their opinion – rather than suggesting that the show favours Nigeria without any basis for saying that.

They certainly cannot suggest its BBA’s fault that this was how the voting went. Their priority is putting on a great show and if they rigged the vote that would jeopardize all their hard work.

As long as they have two winners they are happy, so why would they care who the pair are?

If sponsors from Nigeria are keen there is nothing from Zimbabwe so how would that fit into some of these ridiculous theories?

Then to make that a nonsense South Africa not only hosts the show but sponsors support it.

So on the advertising theory it would have been Luclay and Karen with Vina 3rd.

Nigeria and Zimbabwe put a lot of time, nous and attention into their Big Brother campaigns and are reaping the rewards that is all there is to it.

Luclay demonstrated that South Africa – coming 3rd – have shown a vast improvement but are not quite there yet.

The voting by Africa has confirmed that.

Claims of rigging and conspiracy are not only ridiculous they make South Africans seem like bad sports which we are not.

Let’s try and see the show in context, applaud the winners and move past the nonsense.
