Last night Ray J left the house due to illness, leaving five housemates facing the daunting first eviction this week. None of them will want to be the first to leave and it looks to be a two horse race between Stacy Francis and Angie Best.
The “All Stars and New Stars” have blended in well with each other and surprisingly there has been a lack of confrontations. That has made for a quiet a start to the series but there have been a few market movers in that time, with support switching between celebrities. We’ve taken a look at some of those bigger market movers since the launch show, which might give some clues as to who will be crowned the winner of this year’s series.
|Housemate||Odds - Day 1||Odds - Day 9|
|Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag||13/2||5/1|
Jedward joined the house on day four and they were instantly installed as the favourites. The twins from Ireland are currently 3/1 to win the show with their nearest challengers, Spencer and Heidi and Calum are both 5/1 respectively.
Calum himself was the favourite prior to Jedward going in, while Speidi's odds have dropped from 13/2 to join Calum at 5/1.
The biggest movers are James Jordan and James Cosmo. After spending most of the evening arguing with Austin, it seems the public have taken James' side with the dancer now 7/1 to win. Jordan is known for standing up for himself and he will happily speak his own mind. He offered Austin no sympathy when he left the diary room asking to leave the house.
Austin entered the house as one of the favourites after finishing runner-up in 2015 but he has struggled to build a bromance with a fellow contestant like he did during his first stay. After telling Stacy he didn’t like her face, he fell out with James Jordan soon after. He has drifted from one of the front runners at 8/1 to an outsider to be crowned winner at 22/1.
Finally, we’ve seen Brandon, Angie, Nicola and Jasmine drift massively over the last few days. The bookmakers believe that none of them bring much to the house and have a slim chance of reaching the final stages of this series.
