Big Brother 2010: Housemates take on Humpty Dumpty task

For today’s task, housemates were split into two teams and took each other on at Endurance Humpty Dumpty – an eggstremely eggsalent task.

For this task six housemates became Humpty Dumpty’s and six housemates became all the Queen’s horses and all the Queen’s men.

The group was split as follows.

Humpty Dumpty
Nathan
John James
Govan
Ife
Shabby
Caoimhe

All the Queen’s Men and all the Queen’s Horses
Josie
Ben
Steve
Dave
Corin
Mario

As Endurance Humpty Dumpty involved the use of eggs and Sunshine has an egg allergy, she took on the role of the Queen, she did however egg them on.

Once the task started Big Brother played the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty into House, the Store Room opened for all the Queen’s Horses and all the Queen’s Men to collect a bucket of eggs.

All the Queen’s Horses and all the Queen’s Men then had until the end of the nursery rhyme in which to pelt the entire contents of the bucket at the Humpty Dumpty’s.

If All the Queen’s Horses and All the Queen’s Men could get four or more Humpty Dumpty’s off the wall over the four hour period then they would have won the task.

However, as the Humpty Dumpty housemates and all the Queens Horses and all the Queens Men housemates failed to take the task seriously, breaking numerous task rules, Big Brother decided to call the task off after two hours.

Rule breaks included:
Humpty Dumpty housemates smoking on the wall
Numerous housemates removing costumes
Humpty Dumpty housemates walking away from the wall
All the Queen’s Horses and All the Queen’s Men housemates failing to mount their horses at all times

But today the sun is shining and Big Brother is feeling generous so as a special treat has decided to still treat all housemates to a party this evening.
