Yesterday, the Big Brother housemates learned that they had passed this week’s shopping task and would therefore receive a luxury shopping budget of £840…
More on that in a moment, but first, my question is this; as BB took away all the food etc., that they bought with the luxury budget from last week’s shopping for this week’s task, isn’t that somewhat negating the whole point of the task anyway??
Now granted, the housemates may well have had their food and booze etc., brought back in now this week’s task is over, but for two days, they had to do without everything they worked hard in the last task to win!
And again, I know two days worth of eating only what Big Brother provided wasn’t the end of the world, but if I were a housemate, I would’ve put that argument forward to the big guy and questioned the efficacy of even bothering with the tasks if the rewards can be taken away willy and/or nilly. Would that have riled you?
Anyway, back to the Lab Rats task, and the final hurdle for them to cross in order to win saw the ratty housemates given the chance to turn the tables on the all powerful scientists, Lydia, Benedict and Luke A… Read more & comment »
As fans of Big Brother will know, the housemates received this week’s shopping task yesterday – Day 15 – which saw 12 of them becoming lab rats while Lydia, Benedict and Luke A were appointed the scientists who would oversee experiments on the lab rats.
As part of the task, and in order to receive individual rewards, one of yesterday’s ‘experiments’ saw the lab rats having to concentrate on the screen in front of them as a variety of “distractions” were presented to them.
For Ashleigh, her distraction was having a Justin Bieber lookeylikey singing the popstar’s hits right in front of her, and her prize for ignoring him – which she won – was spending time with her dog.
Shievonne had an altogether less scary distraction than Bieber – shudders – in the form of a 7ft long python, but although she’s petrified of snakes, she managed to “keep her eye on the prize” which was junk food… Read more & comment »
11:20am UPDATE! Big Brother has just confirmed that for this week’s shopping task, the three most intelligent housemates will be scientists, while the remaining 12 will be lab rats.
Around twenty minutes ago, housemates picked Lydia, Benedict and Luke A to be the scientists, and they will be required to predict the outcome of a series of experiments undertaken by the rats.
BB adds, “This is an epic two day task. Will the housemates be successful and if so, will they manage to calculate the food budget correctly this time?”
11am UPDATE! Big Brother has put lots of odd looking equipment in the garden and taken all the housemates’ food away! O they are going to be sooooooo mad!
