Chick peed in his wellies
Such class. Couldn't he have gone on the grass at least?

Is it just me or did it look like Jo pulled just 20 out of her envelope at the end of last nights ep?
Do you think Chick and Jason really only paid that much?
That'll be royalling taking the pee if they have.

I suppose its one of the (many) flaws with the format - Jo charges a very competative price already so if you dont think it was 'the best' its hard to underpay without looking ridiculous. Best bet is to overpay the place that is going above and beyond on service etc - but, of course, if you are gameplaying to win yourself that won't work...

I think its one of those programmes where the format quirks work in its favour and its one of the most fascinating shows for me too watch due to seeing people with tactics and then seeing the reaction, makes good television for me. Back on topic, and Chick and Jason are royally getting on my wick, obviously game playing, unnecessarily rude to Keri and Lisa and the way the Blackpool Lady thinks the sun shines out their a**e, well, she's in for a shock later!

I can imagine there will be a few shocked looks/reactions tonight. It will be fun to watch!

I'll be glad when this week ends all I can think of is Harold Shipman and Heather Trott now while watching it.

LOL

I can definitely see Harold but I dont think Lisa looks much like Heather.

I hope Graham and Lisa win, I've done a complete about turn on them and now really like them. They seem easy going and quite willing to get along with anyone - even Chick.

I think Ben and Keri's place was great if you like camping, but I can't see any of the others having paid near the full amount for their tents. If someone books to stay there, then they know what to expect and would probably really like the place. The extra charge for breakfast was understandable (if a little steep), as I think glamping is more self catering than b&b.

I really don't understand why Chick feels the need to pick on people. He doesn't approve of Graham and Lisa's business or relationship. He has constant digs at Keri because he's quiet. Chick isn't coming across as a particularly pleasant man.

Correct me if I have got this wrong.

Jo thought Chick and Jasons comments were from Ben & Keri. So she may have had it in for Ben & Keri when it came to payment.

Ben & Keri thought Chick and Jasons comments were from Jo, so they won't be very happy with her.

Could be fireworks tonight when they all realise Chick & Jason are the culprits!
She's in for a shock tonight when she finds out that the comments were really from Chick, who she seems to think the sun shines out of.

Lisa reminds me of the American actress Kathy Bates.

Jo is in for a shock tonight. When Chick was rude to Keri the other night Jo agreed with it, see how she likes it when it affects her!

Really hope Chickpea and son don't win, hope it is Graham and Lisa.

So do I. Strange, isn't it, how at the beginning of the week a lot of us didn't seem to care for Graham & Lisa, and now we want them to win. They certainly have come across as a genuine couple over the course of the week.

Really loving the way we've nicknamed him Chickpea....although more appropriately would be Chickpee

He is coming across as a huge game player. Wouldn't return to any of his fellow B &B- ers and is picking some petty reasons to put on the feedback reports. Was it him that put the comment about the noise of seagulls in Blackpool?

I think they will short pay everyone in a bid to win.

Yes, I think it was them who noted down on the feedback form about the noise from the seagulls

The thing is, their place really did look rather lovely and I remember posting that I would love to stay there.

Now, however, I wouldnt go there out of principle. I dont like them. They're playing a game and Chick is sometimes unreasonably rude to people.

Wonder whose wellie that was? I shouldn't think that they took them along so Ben and Keri have cause for complaint if they supplied the wellies. After all, the contestants allegedly don't know where they are going so...

I'd be peed off if they were supplied by me!

They should at least have a pot in a cupboard in the yurts - what used to be called a commode.

Especially for oldies who might come on these holidays now and again. I should know!

I assumed they were Chick's but then again, you're right...they wouldnt have known they were staying in Yurts so wouldnt have taken them with them, so perhaps they WERE supplied by Ben and Keri

I think if I ever went Glamping (which, to be honest, is never going to happen), then I would much rather pee in a bucket, then walk even 100 yards to a loo in the middle of the night.

The thought makes me shudder just thinking about it

Not very glam really is it? It's a bit of a contradiction in terms, Glamping, but I do rather like the interiors of yurts. Be nice in high summer.

I seem to remember Yurts featured in the last series...a young couple....their Yurts, from memory, were a little more "luxurious" than Ben and Keri's.

Yurts look really nice and if the weather was hot then perhaps I MIGHT consider it. But if its wet, cold and blowing a gale, then staying in a Yurt would be the last place I would want to be!

In fact, a Yurt could be the most luxurious Yurt on earth, but to me, its still "camping"...

Hi ... may I comment as a newbie / one of the contributors this week? I hope these answers don't spoil your speculative fun and games!

* I have been likened to Jesus and Gerry Adams in the past, but Harold Shipman is a new comparison.

* Our Sage green Well House Manor bedroom ("snot green") is usually a double. There was a late change in room requirements ... thus the uneven bedheads

We went into the show with our eyes open (we think). Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We've broad enough shoulders to accept the views of others here, there and elsewhere ... let's see if we still have that view after the "reveal" in an hour's time!

Welcome to the thread! We do love it when people who are on the show suddenly pop their heads above the parapet and say hello.

Have to say, both of you have turned opinions around on this thread (which I'm sure you've read back!).....

Been great viewing this week and we're all gunning for you tonight.

Cant wait for the "reveals" tonight.....can imagine there will be a few raised eyebrows

Hello! Welcome to the thread! I liked you and Lisa. Looking forward to the reveal.

I'm sure you would never pee in anybody's wellie.

BIB Which just goes to prove what we have said so many times before Sis! The show is a great chance to get free publicity reaching masses of people. Make the most of it to gain your own advantage. Chick is showing exactly how NOT to do it!

Hi Wellho!

Are you really as geeky as shown or have the producers been misleading us with the edit again?

Either way I think you've given a good impression and hopefully done a lot of good for your business

Hellho Wellho, sorry that was me that started that. It was more the beard than the idea that you murdered your guests to get in their wills that inspired it.

I do hope you win, you and Lisa have grown on me.......not in a fungussy sort of way.

Welcome Graham! As my Sis says (Birthdaygirl - we are not really sisters) we love it when the participants come on here. And she is right. If you have read the thread, you will see that we are rooting for you both, after not being sure at first.

We are all looking forward to tonights programme. Perhaps afterwards you might let us in on a few behind the scenes secrets?
