Default Do you like BB14?

Just wondering because although I enjoyed it for the most part I find it so overrated, only Gina, Hazel and Sallie were good really.

BB13 is a million miles better imo.

I like it - it's better than some of Channel 4's last series, but it doesn't even come close to BB13.

It's the second best C5 civilian series but very overrated

Yeah, the only thing better about 14 over 13 is the eviction order imo.

Sallie first though </3

But yeah I agree, not too bothered because my favourite (Deana) lasted until the end.

Love it. There were so many interesting storylines and characters which helped to carry the show. The producers successfully re-launched the 'bedsit' scenario with great success because of Gina and Dexter. Also big characters like Gina and Hazel were miraculously kept in!

The only thing negative really was the shockingly bad mole task which should have been executed perfectly because they had 14 years to think up a good way to integrate a mole into the game but it was just bad and robbed us of Sallie

Very average and extremely overrated IMO. Definitely some stuff I really enjoyed, but on the whole it just didn't compell me much at all.

I didn't like that in the first week some of the Housemates didn't shut up about the Secrets and Lies theme, they shouldn't have told them about it imo.

Oh god yeah, Gina's popularity was a big factor in my disinterest in the series too. I actually stopped watching originally (around halfway) but eventually went back and watched the second half the following year (when I knew she didn't win ).

Didn't it have the stupid Sam vs Sophie thing, where Sophie kept saying Sam didn't like her over and over again?

I agree about the twists, I thought Gina was one of the few good housemates in the series though.
