Shilpa Shetty wins

Hi Grit

It is over. A few moments ago Shilpa Shetty, the 31 year old Indian Actress walked out of the house for the final time, as the WINNER.  Shilpa, the target of racial abuse and bullying during her stay in the house, collects a £100,000 prize, collected 63% of the vote, beating Jermaine Jackson into second, and Dirk Benedict into third place. None of the three finalists were British.

Even in the post winning interview, Shilpa was magnanimous in victory, asking people to forget what had happened and thanking everyone in the UK for the opportunity she had been given. This despite having to sit through some awful comments that were made about her behind her back in the house by others.

Whether this will be the end of the incident remains to be seen, but at least Shilpa has acted like a lady and a deserving winner. Let’s hope that the media and everyone else takes her lead and lets the incident alone from now on, although I doubt with the English media that this will happen.

Anyway, congratulations to the Lady and to your two American contestants who did so well. America should be rightfully proud of the way that Jermaine and Dirk conducted themselves during this show. It is a shame some of the British contestants could not have acted more like the three finanlists.

    Hi Grit

    I hasten to add my friend, that this might or might not be a brief respite. In the summer there is a plan for a non-celebrity Big Brother. One problem with this is that, whereas the Celebrity Big Brother only lasts for 26 days, non-celebrity BB lasts…. wait for it!…. thirteen weeks.
