Big Brother told the housemates this evening that one of the nominated housemates would be leaving the Big Brother house this evening, and they would be paid off to leave the compound. The housemate who selected the least amount of money in this evening’s shock twist would leave the house tonight with their selected prize fund, however, it was all a lie…
Big Brother gathered the housemates on the sofas this evening and lined up the nominated housemates to tell them that one of them will be leaving Friday, unfortunately one would also be leaving the compound this evening.
Big Brother told the housemates: “You are all nominated to face the public vote. One of you will leave the house on Friday. But, Big Brother doesn’t feel like waiting until Friday. Big Brother wants to see one of the four housemates facing eviction leave tonight. Big Brother wants to pay off one housemate with cold hard cash from the prize fund to leave the house this evening.
“The question that you all must ask yourselves is this: ‘What is the lowest amount of money you would be willing to accept to leave the Big Brother house this evening’. The housemate who chooses the lowest figure will be leaving the Big Brother house this evening. The money will be taken directly from the winners’ prize fund”.
Each housemate entered the small task room in turn to choose the figure that they would be willing to accept to leave the Big Brother house.
Sam said: “I am going to get one thing straight, I do not want to leave, therefore I am going to pick a high number. I don’t care about the money”.
Jack & Joe added: “It has to be high. I wouldn’t leave for anything low.
Charlie stated: “I am here for my own self-discovery, I’m not here for the money, I don’t feel comfortable walking away with the money tonight and I don’t want to leave tonight”.
Dexter contemplated: “I’m thinking everybody says they’re just in here for the experience and not the money so they’re going to try and do a [uniformed] vote”.
The housemates in turn then pick the money that they would be willing to walk away with.
However, Big Brother gathered the housemates once again this evening and one by one the nominated housemates opened their briefcases to reveal how much money they were willing to take. Sam chose £100,000, Jack & Joe chose £96,850, Charlie chose £99,000 and Dexter chose £88,800.
Big Brother then revealed to the housemates that although Dexter had chosen the least amount of money, he would not be leaving the house this evening nor would he be collecting the prize fund. As he was the least selfish housemate, choosing the lowest amount of money – although, this actually makes him the most selfish due to the nature of the task – he would be rewarded with immunity from tomorrow evening’s eviction and therefore has a guaranteed place in the final along with Gina Rio and Sophie Lawrence.
Jack & Joe, Sam Evans and Charlie Travers now face the public vote tomorrow evening and one will fall at the final hurdle.
