Darnell's Mikey rant

Darnell says the other 'Big Brother' housemates only want Mikey to win because he is blind. The US rapper - who has become increasingly paranoid in recent weeks - told blind Mikey other contestants are only backing him to win the show because they think it is the "cool" thing to do.
He also claimed that if Mikey had behaved as he had in the house but didn't have a disability he would have been voted out a long time ago.
Darnell said to Mikey: "The conversation is who do you want to win. Most of the housemates say you, and I always say I don't understand that because the same housemates who say this don't even know you. They haven't spent any time with you so I don't understand.
"I feel like they say you because it makes them look cool, it makes them look better."
Rachel, who was listening to the conversation, argued that housemates liked Mikey because of his humour and honesty.
Refusing to listen, Darnell said Mikey should only win it because people had got to know him properly and liked him, not because he is blind.
An irritated Mikey told Darnell - who has continually moaned people view him differently because he is an albino - not to put his insecurities onto him, adding he was exactly the same person before he became blind.
Darnell retorted: "If you were sighted and you acted as you have, you would be gone. I think there is a double standard."
