Booted Big Brother contestant Christopher Wayne has wasted no time setting the record straight on controversial power broker Danny, claiming he is nothing more than a bully.
“I was bullied when I was in school, and I know what a bully looks like, they’re not the strongest or the tallest, they’re the most manipulative, and that’s Danny,” explained Christopher in a post-eviction chat with 7NEWS.com.au
“And to make matters worse, he is mean and unhinged.”
The stirring words come after a tense episode that saw Christopher and Danny trading barbs up until an explosive eviction ceremony. Christopher found himself in the firing line alongside Charlotte and Big Brother’s oldest housemate, 65-year-old SJ.

“Chris has been trying to take my head off instead of working on building quality connections, and now he’s been caught out with that,” Daniel explained when asked by Sonia Kruger why Chris was up for nomination.

TAKING A STAND
Earlier in the day, Chris had encouraged the ‘plane crew’ to set their sights on Danny, believing his gameplay was creating an unhappy environment in the house.
“Living in the house with Danny was impossible; he literally bullies people, and it’s just not pleasant to be around,” said Christopher.
“He gets this look in his eyes that is legitimately unhinged, and you see these outbreaks he has, and they’re scary. I got to the point where I wouldn’t stand for it in the house.”

This season, Danny has engineered the exits of several housemates, including Max, Michael and now Christopher.
“I suppose he is the TV villain that Big Brother fans deserve, but he has the integrity of a MAFS [Married at First Sight] contestant,” sniped Christopher.
“At this point, it felt like Danny could go up to anyone, force them into anything, and people were too scared to challenge him.”
Rather than allow Danny to continue dominating the house, Christopher decided enough was enough. Earlier in the day, he pulled Katie aside for a chat and revealed a plan to topple Danny.

Unfortunately for Christopher, Danny’s offsider Nick was eavesdropping on his conversation.
“That probably cost me, but ultimately I would rather get voted out early and force other housemates to confront the Danny problem now,” said Christopher.
“Nick has Danny’s back, but I think neither of them would have trouble tossing the other person under the bus to save themselves.”
PULL A RABBIT OUT OF THE HAT
With his plan common knowledge Christopher knew that he had to win tonight’s nomination challenge if he wanted to avoid eviction.

Teaming up with Marley for the ‘tipping point’ challenge, Christopher admits Danny was the least of his concerns.
“He can’t win a challenge to save his life, he did PT sessions for months leading up to the show, but he is pathetic when he gets into the challenge arena,” said the 37-year-old.
“He has no physical or mental strength.”

Instead, he was more concerned about Danny’s minions, most notably, Melissa.
“She is a beast, and while Marley and I were leading briefly, once we fell behind Tilly and Melissa, it was over, I think I even said it out loud, ‘I’m a dead man walking.’”
Melissa and Tilly won the challenge, nominating Christopher, Charlotte and SJ.
NOTHING TO LOSE
By the time Christopher walked into the eviction ceremony, he was confident that his time on Big Brother was up.
“I knew there was no way that I could win, so I knew I had nothing to lose, which is why I put Danny on blast,” explained Christopher.

“I told the housemates to get him out of the game the first chance they get.”
Despite being beaten by someone he believes is an ‘unhinged bully’, Chris concedes that Danny’s strong-arm strategy seems to be working.
“It is hard to stay in the house if you’re not liked, and when I left, Danny was not liked by most people in the game, so the fact he is still there speaks to the calibre of his ability to intimidate,” said Christopher.
“I wish him the best, but I have no interest in that man. I will shake his hand at the finale and then never see him again.”
