For this week’s shopping task, Housemates will laugh along with the world as they celebrate International Joke Day.
The shopping task consists of 5 challenges. If Housemates successfully pass 3 or more of the 5 challenges they will receive a premium shopping budget. If Housemates fail 3 or more of the 5 challenges they will receive an economy shopping delivery.
The 5 challenges are as follows:
THERE WAS AN ENGLISHMAN, AN IRISHMAN AND A SCOTSMAN
The 3 nominated Housemates will become an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman. They will take part a joke hunt and attempt to find the punchlines to jokes hidden in three classic joke delivery systems. These are ice lollies with punchlines on the sticks, chocolate biscuits with jokes on the wrappers, and Christmas crackers containing jokes. They will have half an hour to find all three punchlines.
This is Shabby as the Scotsman, Sunshine as the Englishman and Caoimhe as the Irishman
WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?
2 Housemates will become Chickens. They will take part in an endurance challenge. They will sit inside a coop in the garden with real, live chickens. Each time a live chicken crosses the road in the coop, the Housemate Chickens must tell a ‘why did the chicken cross the road?’ joke, from books containing chicken jokes. One Housemate chicken must tell the joke line, and the other Housemate Chicken must give the punch line.
David and John James are the chickens.
LAUGHTER WORLD RECORD
5 Housemates will become a Nun, a Liverpudlian , a Doctor, a Waiter and a Mother-in-Law (all the butt of many a joke) They will attempt to break an unrecognised world record for continuous laughter, which currently stands at 3 hours and 6 minutes.
Corin is the Nun, Mario is the Mother-in-Law, Nathan is the Liverpudlian, Ife is the Waiter.
THE DUMB BLONDE
1 Housemate will become a Dumb Blonde. They will take part in a quiz, where they must guess the punchlines to dumb blonde jokes.
Josie chose to be the Dumb Blonde
STAND UP ROUTINE
1 Housemate will become a stand up comedian. Their costume and further instructions will arrive in due course, but until that time they must wear a sandwich board stating, ‘I am a joke’. As he failed to impress the Tree of Temptation Ben has claimed this role as part of his punishment.
