Big Brother Australia 2012 is drawing a fair share of audience support, but one of its contestants, Estelle, has not been getting a lot of love from the viewers.

Big Brother Australia 2012: Estelle Likely to Win, Viewers Tweet Reactions
Big Brother rarely goes away from the one million mark in TV ratings, even on weeknights. How does the God-is-watching reality show keep its audience interested? Through "real life" drama, of course.
Just recently, evicted Big Brother housemate Ava chose Estelle for the "Super Power" of the house. This 'power' gave Estelle the privilege to listen in on two of her housemates while they are unaware.
Estelle chose to listen to Michael and Benjamin. She was more affected by what she heard from Michael, though. He said:
"My ability to chat with the other guys in the house drops dramatically whenever she enters the room because she'll just say "jiggy wiggy" and I'll be like "What just happened? Why did that have to happen? Why is my story now over? Why do we all just hate Estelle now?" and that's basically how that happened."
Estelle obviously did not expect such a strong opinion of her. She sobbed her heart out, saying, "Just because I said something silly, everyone hates me."
On Twitter, the Big Brother viewers are not holding back on their opinion about Estelle, too.
@bbGARYbb: I love Big Brother Australia. Have done a 180 on Estelle. Love her now. #bbau
@naimcb: my friend told me that Estelle on big brother reminds her of me. I died a little inside.
@Donsie58: Estelle has messed with Michaels's head. Good one Big Brother.
@GimmeTheFife: RT if you hate Estelle on Big Brother with a fiery passion.
@britttanyanne_: ESTELLE NEEDS TO GO. now. get out of the big brother house. now.
@stylelikegrande [reply to @xBowsForAri]: omg yes big brother is my life, i want Estelle gone tho, sorry if you like her. :/
It is typical for the viewers to have a "commonly disliked" contestant in a reality show. And ironically, the disliked person tends to stay a little longer than those who are less disliked. Estelle is not even nominated for eviction this week.
Bradley, Sam, Michael or Angie will leave the Big Brother house this weekend.
