Mark has become the eleventh person to be evicted from Big Brother 2014
This week, Housemates nominated as normal, and four Housemates were nominated. Christopher, Mark, Pav and Winston all received the most nominations this week and it was announced that they would face eviction.
However, as the Power of Money twist took over, another Housemate was nominated for eviction. At a cost of £10,000, Chris was nominated for eviction and joined the other five in being nominated. However, the nomination was in vain as the Housemates failed the final dilemma and the prize fund stayed at £100,000.
Mark told Emma, “I had such an amazing experience for the most part…there are people in there who would be better finalists…Nothing went wrong for me…it was just a brilliant summer”
Emma asks about the pact to split the money, which caused some arguments in the House, and he agrees it was a bad decision. When asked why he didn’t share his reasons to the Housemates, Mark admitted “I just thought I was defusing the situation a little bit by not giving a million and one reasons…I didn’t tell everybody my entire thought process…If me and Ash did the same, we’d have got it in the neck too”
Emma then moves the conversation on to Christopher and asks if Mark was jealous when he defended Chris. Mark says that Chris “just sat back and let Christopher fight his battle for him…I think I was a little bit jealous”
Emma then shows Mark some highlights of his relationship with Christopher. After seeing some of their many arguments, Mark says he doesn’t know when it started to slip but suggests that it was when Christopher didn’t defend him during the Strongest Housemate task.
When asked if he thinks they have a future, Mark said “I was starting to trust him and open up…me and Christopher have a lot in common but we argue too much…I’m not going to write him off now” before adding that he’s taken advice from his friends in the House.
Mark admits that things changed for him when the three new Housemates came in and that he didn’t think he could compete with them, “It was then that I lost faith in myself”
Emma asks about one of his best friends in the House, Helen who he describes as being “tough…but she has a massive heart…she’s an amazing person…I’d be more than happy if she won”
On the divide in the House, Emma suggests that it will be more evident now he’s gone and Mark admits, “It’s going to be weird…it’s going to be a tough week”
Emma then reveals that it’s a double eviction and Mark jokes, “I’m a bit gutted…I was looking forward to a night by myself!”
