It wasn't enjoyable. It was all doom and gloom and sapped the energy out of the whole series due to there being nothing light hearted at all.

It's the best of the bad series thanks to the amazing first 3 weeks. Week 4 onwards is kinda crap and after Danielle goes it's literally unwatchable.

Also you seem to defend C5 an awful lot Are you sure you don't work for them?

Yeah I agree with that, although whether you like the series overall kinda depends on who you stan imo but I loved Helen so maybe thatís why I liked it

And yeah is it obvious haha I think itís because I started watching from BB12, so C5 is kinda like how BB should be for me? Like both channels are completely different so people who watched from the start may dislike C5ís due to it not being normal BB. But yeah all the editing/twists (basically everything noone likes) Iíve seen from the start so itís not bad for me

Very underrated series, I get why people don't like it but it had a decent amount of everything for me and Mark provided the laughs. The rivalry and two stars of the series becoming the best final two of all time also helps things

Can't even see myself re watching won't imagine it will be fun
In terms of drama the series was decent but it literally had no fun to balance it out like BB17/18 did - and the eviction order was dire at some points

I think it's underrated. I think the frustration of Helen's clique beating the actual nice people ruined the series while it was on but looking back it was still a good series, plus Ashleigh somehow managing to make 2nd is still actually amazing considering all the attempts to get her out.

It has its good moments. Danielle, Mark, Ashleigh and Chris are the only likeable HMs though, and even they have their moments.

No, it still sucks (though not quite as much as BB12 or, ultimately, BB16)

Controversial opinion but Toya's eviction killed off the series more than Charley's eviction, or any other eviction for that matter

It's just a really negative, draining series with barely any likeable housemates and the fact evil was rewarded at the end doesn't help matters

It's great for the first 3 weeks but afterwards the drama just becomes draining. It was so rewarding seeing Ashleigh go from hated to runner-up though, I only followed BB15 for her storyline

It was a gloomy series but still entertaining. It's in the top half of C5 BB for me.

It was WAY better than Timebomb and I prefer it to 17 and 18 tbh. It feels like the last civilian series that Channel 5 really gave a **** about.

Helen v Ashleigh was an epic feud and I thought it had one of the strongest female casts in a while.

Yeah it was dark and confrontational heavy, but its still one of the better series on Channel 5 and underrated IMO.

BB15 is a perfect example of too much drama and conflict being draining and unwatchable, add to that the horrible cast and twists too. I much prefer BB16 as the four weeks without Marc were actually enjoyable, while BB15 was only okay for 3 weeks.

It's actually in my top 3. I know it's an unpopular opinion out there, but I really enjoyed it.
The order of evictees was just right, the drama was intense thanks to the overall theme and big characters. We've had fun moments as well.
We had the best top 3 with Helen winning in the end. As much as she was painful to watch sometimes, she still ran that house and provided a lot to it. So te me she deserved to win, as much as Ashleigh.
Steven & Kim were awkward but it was hella funny to watch them evolve.

So you can start throwing rocks at me now

It was painful and depressing to watch as a whole, but its better than BB16 because it did not have the HIDEOUS 4in4out twist, and even though I hated Helen, she actually DESERVED to win because she, along with Ashleigh, were the series' main stars.
