Public dump Marco.

Marco Sabba, has been booted out of the "Big Brother" house.
The 21-year old was one of three names nominated for the public eviction. He was the third to leave the reality TV show.
A tranquil Marco smiled and nodded his head when told by presenter Davina McCall that the public wanted him out of the house.
Transsexual bank clerk Nadia Almada and model Michelle Bass were given temporary reprieve.
Former asylum seeker Ahmed Aghil said he nominated Marco because he was "manipulative."
"He provokes people then runs away and hides behind skirts," Ahmed said.
The bookies had Marco odds-on favourite to face the chop.
Eight of the original 12 contestants remain, vying for the final cash prize.
South African student Vanessa Nimmo left the house last Friday after finding herself out of favour with the public.
Producers were forced to evict unruly "political activist" Katherine Pinder, aka "Kitten", last month.
Emma Greenwood was then removed for her own safety after a fight.
New housemate, Becki Seddiki, joined the show on Sunday.
