Favourite thrown out by fellow housemate, leaving the odds for the eventual winner wide open.
Big Brother fans were left stunned last night as former The Valleys star Lateysha Grace was evicted from the Big Brother house by fellow housemate Jason Burrill.
Housemates were given the opportunity to take £20,000 from the £100,000 prize fund by being the first to press a buzzer after a noise was sounded. Jason won the task and was then allowed to choose someone to leave the show in exchange for the money.
Before revealing the name of the housemate he wanted to evict, Jason stated: “I’m doing it because I think that person is going to win it, so it gives everyone more of a level chance.”
He certainly got his wish as bookmakers are seemingly now sitting on the fence when it comes to the current odds.
Hughie Maughan is the new favourite at 11/4, with Jackson Blyton 3/1 and Alex Cannon at 5/1. Jason may have picked up £20,000 for his troubles, but his decision leaves him unlikely to scoop the remainder of the prize fund, as he sits at 10/1.
Jason also insisted that his decision to press the buzzer had nothing to do with the cash. Of course Jason, we all believe you!
