Series Information
Presenter: Davina McCall
Broadcaster: Channel 4
Winner: Rachel Rice

Big Brother 9 was the ninth series of Big Brother which aired on Channel 4 and E4. The series was launched on 5 June 2008, and ran for 13 weeks until 5 September 2008.

The winner of the series was Rachel Rice, who beat bookies' favourite Michael Hughes in the final vote with 51.3%. At the time of the series, Big Brother 9 was the least watched summer series in Big Brother's history, until the following series, with an average of only 3.6 million.

No housemates in this series were represented in Ultimate Big Brother, a mini-series to mark the end of Big Brother on Channel 4. However Rex Newmark, Kathreya Kasisopa and Stuart Pilkington entered to take part in tasks.

ProductionEdit

The series was launched on 5 June 2008, and ran for 13 weeks until 5 September 2008. This series started later than normal. It was rumoured that this was so that it did not clash with Britain's Got Talent, which was being aired on ITV during May. Auditions were held from 21 November 2007 to 25 January 2008. The main show for the program was a highlights show, shown at 10pm on Monday to Wednesday, then at 9pm on Thursday to Sunday, with each program lasting an hour. Each Friday a housemate was evicted, the announcement of the loser of the public vote was announced live by Davina McCall at the end of the first of two programs shown on the Friday. There was then a second program at 10.30pm when McCall interviews the evictee, this second program usually lasted until 11.00pm, unless there was a change in plans (such as new housemates going in or a double eviction) then the program was longer. For the first time since Big Brother 4, all of McCall's interactions with the House (except for the final night) took place in a studio to stop the crowd chants from influencing the housemates and to enforce the fundamental rule of "no contact with the outside world." This new medium of communicating with the House would continue into the next celebrity and civilian series. In the final week the Monday program was moved to 9pm, there were two programs broadcast on the Tuesday, both hosted by McCall, the first at 8pm and the second at 10pm, when two housemates were evicted. On Wednesday and Thursday the highlights show was shown at 9pm. Then for the finale there were two programs starting at 8pm and 10.30pm with an hour and half hour break in between. Live streaming on E4 of events in the House, known as Big Brother: Live, was reduced because of the decision to keep E4 Music during the series' run rather than taking a break until the series is over. For the first time in the show's history, there was no live web stream. The series was accompanied with the shows Big Brother's Big Mouth, Big Brother's Little Brother and Diary Room Uncut. Zezi Ifore and George Lamb replaced Dermot O'Leary as the hosts of Big Brother's Little Brother whilst Big Brother's Big Mouth was hosted by a different guest host each week, beginning with Jack Whitehall. Chris Moyles took over for the first full week inside the Big Brother House. The weekly podcast made by the housemates in Big Brother 8 was axed for Big Brother 9, with a 60 minute radio show Big Brother's Big Ears as its replacement. Like the podcast, it was available for download on the Channel 4 website and was hosted by Iain Lee and Gemma Cairney. It aired twice a week on a Tuesday and Friday (after the Live Eviction) at 11.30pm.

Edit

The official eye motif was revealed on 12 May 2008, on the official Big Brother website. This year's eye had a shattered effect, leading to some speculation that Big Brother was going to be evil. It was later announced that this year's theme was to be 'zero tolerance', which confirmed speculation of a somewhat harsher Big Brother. In 2011, it was ranked the public's favourite Big Brother eye ever. Each Big Brother show shared the same logo but with a different coloured shard to reflect the show; Big Brother's Big Mouth was green, Big Brother Live and Diary Room Uncut were red, Big Brother's Little Brother was orange and Big Brother's Big Ears was purple.

HouseEdit

As with all Big Brother series since Big Brother 3, the House was located in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, just north of London, and was completely rebuilt with a new look for the 2008 series.

House splitEdit

On Day 37, after Mario Marconi's eviction, McCall announced that over the weekend housemates will elect a Head of House, who would be in control of the whole House. It was also revealed that the House would be split in two, with one side being 'heaven' and the other 'hell'. Heaven had all the best seats, the entire swimming pool, sole access to the luxury bedroom and bathroom. Heavenly housemates had the right to smoke wherever they wish, as long as hey remained in the garden, as well as sole right to the prison. Hell, on the other hand, had few seats, no swimming pool, sole access to the kitchen, meaning they had to cook for the "Heavenly" housemates as well, "B-Block" (the basic bedroom) and outdoor cold showers. Hellish housemates must also earn their right to nominate. On Day 65, after Dale Howard's eviction, McCall announced that the divide between Heaven and Hell would be removed. Despite this, a new Head of House was appointed the next day and the housemates re-allocated between Heaven and Hell. The next day, the fence came down.

Head of HouseEdit

The Head of House is responsible for doing the shopping list and deciding who does what in the shopping task. The Head of House is immune from being nominated for the week they hold the title, but they can still nominate others. The Head of House does not participate in any of the weekly shopping tasks, but supervises instead. Once a housemate has been Head of House they could not stand a second time, but could compete to stay in Heaven. After the divide was removed, only eligible housemates competed to become Head of House, except for Week 12 when all housemates were eligible. On Day 88 all previous Heads of House joined Mohamed Mohamed in becoming Head of House for one day, putting an end to the role of Head of House.

  • In Week 6, on Day 38, housemates elected their Head of House. Dale Howard, Luke Marsden and Darnell Swallow stood for election. Darnell won and was crowned first Head of House.
  • In Week 7, on Day 45, three housemates were chosen to compete for Head of House in a competition; these three housemates were Dale Howard, Maysoon Shaladi and Rebecca Shiner. They had to hang from a tyre for as long as possible, with the one staying for the longest time winning the title. Dale won and was crowned second Head of House.
  • In Week 8, on Day 52, Big Brother called all housemates individually to the Diary Room, and gave each eight chili peppers to eat. Each chili pepper was assigned a certain number of points. The housemate that scored the most points by eating the peppers would win the title of Head of House. Stuart Pilkington won and was crowned the third Head of House.
  • In Week 9, on Day 59, Big Brother called all housemates individually to the Diary Room, to take part in the challenge of saying the alphabet backwards. The eligible housemate that did it in the fastest time would become Head of House, Rachel Rice was second fastest after Darnell and became the fourth Head of House.
  • In Week 10, on Day 66, housemates from Hell and housemates from Heaven had to make cakes resembling famous London landmarks, with Hell recreating the Millennium dome and Heaven recreating Saint Paul's Cathedral. Head of House Rachel had to choose which cake was best and picked Hell's. As a result housemates from Hell had to decide which one of them would become the next Head of House, they chose Michael Hughes to become the fifth Head of House.
  • In Week 11, on Day 73, housemates eligible to become Head of House (Kathreya Kasisopa, Lisa Appleton, Mohamed Mohamed, Nicole Cammack, Rex Newmark and Sara Folino) had to paint themselves with the paint and sponges provided to look like statues. They had to stay still as a statue until one of them was left and they would become the new Head of House. Rex won and became the sixth Head of House.
  • In Week 12, on Day 82, housemates voted for who they wanted to be the next Head of House, instead of nominating for eviction. Mohamed received 4 votes and as Head of House was immune from eviction that week. Unlike previous weeks, all housemates were eligible to become Head of House.
  • On Day 88, the role of Head of House finished.

Controversy Edit

  • Within the first week of the series, media watchdog Ofcom and Channel 4 had collectively received over 433 complaints about alleged bullying from housemate Alexandra De-Gale, after an argument broke out between her and the other housemates regarding oven chips. Channel 4 defended its housemate selection, claiming that the production team were closely watching the housemates as they normally do to ensure the safety of the housemates. The broadcaster also noted that Alexandra had been warned that her behaviour could be deemed threatening. On Day 14 she was ejected from the House after apparently threatening to have housemates who nominated her for eviction dealt with by her "gangster friends".
  • Early in the morning on Day 23, (around 1/2 o'clock) a major argument began when Rex Newmark smudged a piece of pizza on Jennifer Clark's winning drawing of Stuart Pilkington from the life drawing task earlier in the week. Although she accepted Rex's apology Jennifer became increasingly agitated and upset, attracting a number of housemates to the luxury bedroom. Upon hearing about the incident, fellow housemates Dale Howard and Stuart were visibly enraged and demanded Rex apologise, which he had already done. Shortly after apologising again, Stuart's opinion that it was done out of "spite" led to Mohamed Mohamed's comment of "it's just a painting". This caused Rebecca Shiner to confront Mohamed about his involvement in the argument, and eventually Dennis McHugh to say "f*** off" several times before appearing to spit in his face. Dennis claimed however that no spit had actually left his mouth and hit Mohamed. The live feed of the House was then cut at this point, but most of the argument, its build-up and repercussions were included in the highlights the following night. On Day 23, Dennis was ejected from the house due to his actions, which were deemed as unacceptable behaviour by Big Brother.
  • During Week 12, Darnell Swallow and Rex both received warnings of unacceptable behaviour from Big Brother after they appeared to be bullying Sara Folino. This was after more than 1500 people complained to Ofcom about their alleged sexist behaviour.

Notes Edit

Note 1: There were no nominations in the first week. Instead, the result of the secret mission given to Mario, Lisa, Stephanie and Luke determined whether they or the remaining 12 housemates would face the public vote. As they failed the task, they all faced eviction.

Note 2: Because of the ejection of Alexandra, the second eviction was cancelled, and instead new housemate, Stuart, entered. During the time the lines were available to vote, Alexandra had received 87% of the public vote.

Note 3: Stuart was exempt from the nomination process in Week 3 as he was a new housemate meaning he couldn't nominate or be nominated by fellow housemates.

Note 4: On Day 25, Luke discussed nominations. Therefore, the next day, Big Brother punished him by sending him to jail, meaning he could not nominate. However, Rebecca used a "Get Out of Jail Free" card - one of Big Brother's Ever Changing Special Prizes bought in the weekly shopping Budget, to get out of jail. He was then allowed to nominate.

Note 5: Belinda, Maysoon and Sara were exempt from the nomination process in Week 5. As new housemates they could not nominate or be nominated.

Note 6: As Darnell was Head of House he was immune from nomination/eviction for Week 6. Hell Housemates had to peel potatoes in order to nominate.

Note 7: As Dale was Head of House he could nominate but could not be nominated. Hell Housemates had to chop onions in order to nominate.

Note 8: Dale and Luke were voted for eviction by their fellow housemates. However, seven other housemates discussed nominations in secret code, so as a punishment they faced the public vote also. They were Darnell, Kathreya, Maysoon, Mohamed, Rachel, Rex and Stuart. At the time of nominations Stuart was Head of House and exempt from being nominated. After the phone lines were opened Maysoon decided to walk from the House, her line was then closed.

Note 9: As a new housemate, Nicole was exempt from the nomination process and could not nominate or be nominated by fellow housemates. As Head of House, Rachel could nominate but could not be nominated. Housemates from Hell Kathreya and Michael failed to eat a container of Brussels Sprouts and were unable to nominate. Lastly, Darnell was banned from nominating for crossing the divide to hell.

Note 10: As Head of House, Michael could nominate but not be nominated.

Note 11: As Head of House, Rex could nominate, but not be nominated.

Note 12: There were no nominations on Monday in Week 12, instead, housemates nominated who they want to become new Head of House. Mohamed was voted as new Head of House and guaranteed a place in the final week. Housemates nominated who they wanted to be up for eviction, in front of all the other housemates using whiteboards and pens.

Note 13: Nominations do not take place in the final week, instead the public votes for which of the remaining housemates they want to win. Mohammed and Kathreya were evicted 4 days before the final after receiving the lowest number of votes. The public then voted for the final five.
