Model Georgia Salpa is the call to be the first evictee in this series of Celebrity Big Brother.
The underwear model has received very little coverage during her stint in the house other than pretending to flirt with Kirk Norcross since she was put up for eviction.
Surprisingly, she can still be backed at 2.0 (bet365) after being as short as 1.40 yesterday. This price is even more tempting after Ladbrokes revealed 95 percent of all elimination bets have been placed on her.
In comparison, Andrew Stone’s delusions of grandeur and poorly hidden devastation at being put up for eviction has been a focal point of the edited shows. Stone is car crash television and you wonder what he is going to come out with next. He has already confided in current bookmaker’s favourite Natalie Cassidy he believes he will be a judge on the X Factor.
If there’s one thing the British viewing public enjoy, it’s somebody having a breakdown in front of them. Dance teacher and A-list celebrity in his own mind Stone can also be backed at 2.0 (Ladbrokes).
The 26-year-old Salpa received five nominations by Denise, Gareth, Natalie, Nicola and Romeo while Stone was nominated seven times by Frankie, Gareth, Georgia, Kirk, Michael, Natalie and Natasha.
Here’s how the other housemates fair in the betting:
Actress Natalie remains the favourite to win the series and did not receive any votes from her fellow housemates. She is tackling the tasks set by Big Brother with good humour and is endearing herself to the other celebrities and viewers alike.
Best Odds: 3.25 (Betfred)
Like Natalie, daytime television presenter and actress Denise also remained free from nominations during the first round. She seems likeable and is getting on with everybody, hence her edging to second favourite in the betting.
Best Odds: 5.0 (Paddy Power)
Former rugby player Gareth earned just one nomination – from grouchy Michael Madsen whom he compared to a “pig” due to his persistant snoring. Getting involved with the tasks and appears popular.
Best Odds: 7.5 (Sportingbet)
Actor Madsen has grown in popularity after a tough introduction to life in the house. Initially, he looked like he didn’t belong but now he’s settling in better. He has a thing for Natasha Giggs which may be interesting to watch develop over the next few days. Surprisingly, he received one nomination from Denise, who he seems to get on well with.
Best Odds: 8.0 (Bet Victor)
The singer has not received a lot of coverage in the edited shows but also did not receive any nominations from his fellow housemates either. Staying under the radar.
Best Odds: 9.0 (bet365)
The former X Factor contestant has made his sexual frustrations clear during his few days in the house and is getting on the twins nerves. He received votes from Karissa and Kristina and also Andrew. He may get even more during the next round of voting.
Best Odds: 11.0 (Betfred)
Despite constantly hitting on both Georgia and the twins, Kirk did not receive any nominations from his fellow housemates. Still appears popular even if his odds on winning have lengthened.
Best Odds: 21.0 (Sportingbet)
Still has no chance of winning but something is developing between her and Michael. Getting involved with another married man? Who’d have thunk it? Received nominations from Andrew and Romeo.
Best Odds: 41.0 (Boylesports)
Karissa and Kristina Shannon
They look pretty and appear to be getting involved in the house activities but they are sitting ducks for the second eviction. They received four nominations from Frankie, Kirk, Natasha and Nicola.
Best Odds: 41.0 (Sky Bet)
Now the rank outsider to win because she lacks a likeability factor. Continually bitching about other housemates will see a rise in the nominations she received from Georgia and the twins next time the votes are in.
Best Odds: 101.0 (Coral)
