Apologies for not getting this blog out earlier. Feel free read at the bottom of the page as to why I am late.
And then there were the final four. It’s a funny thing to comprehend. On one hand it is like “Oh my gosh! We are in the final” and then on the other hand it’s like “There were only eight couples to start with and I am in the top half. There was a 50% chance of that happening anyway, so it’s not that impressive.” But still, it’s a great feeling , and I am not taking anything away from any of them. By this stage the contestants will be completely sick of studying. They will still be happy to be in the mansion and they will still be having fun, but a part of them will definitely thinking that it would be nice to be back home. Not many people can say they have been completely cut-off from the rest of the world and not know what is happening. Who won the footy grand finals? Who even made the final? OMG I can’t believe Kim Clijsters came out of retirement and won the US open (That was me last year being a tennis fan). Which famous person has tragically passed away? (Patrick Swayze last year). Sorry… just reliving the experience.
I actually saw many parallels in this episode to last year.
1. It was mentioned on camera that everyone thought that the only team that could take down Daniel and Donna was Time and Kara
( Everyone said the only team that could take down Toby and Jenna was Emma and I)
2. Two perceived strongest teams up for elimination just after the makeover (same last year)
3. It was the third time Daniel and Donna were up for elimination (same for Toby and Jenna last year, although they lost)
Another awesome thing is that Daniel and Donna have survived 3 elimination quizzes? Emma and I did that last year as the most successful team in that horrible room. But now there is a good chance for them to have a fourth shot in that room. I do feel bad for them, because it is really stressful. They must be perceived as a very strong team in the mansion because every time they have not won a challenge they have been sent to the elimination room.
Can’t wait for the finale
Tomorrow I will blog about my thoughts on the challenges of last week. I promise!
** Reason for late blog. Thursday night I went and saw Harry Potter. I got home to find my TBOX broken so my BATG recording was last. I could not watch it online at home because my computer speakers are broken. Friday I had work golf day, so I watched the show at my parents house Saturday arvo. Saturday evening was preparing for my triathlon, which took up the whole of Sunday (16 hours of racing). Monday I spent all day in a zombie state with no physical or mental capabilities after my long race, which brings me to now, Tuesday lunchbreak at work, to blog.
