Hi everybody! Ready for another Big Brother highlights show? Me too! I’ll be covering it live, updating this post every advert break. Leave your own comments as usual and I’ll hopefully get a chance to join in the discussion!
But first: Have you played our Big Brother Facebook game yet?
Let’s go…[[Mario Mugan|Mario]] is chatted up by the Tree of Temptation again. This time, he’s given an earpiece so that the Tree can feed information to him during a quiz Big Brother will have the next day.
[[Sunshine Martin|Sunshine]] discovers the vegetable enigma that [[Shabby Katchadourian|Shabby]], [[Ife Kuku|Ife]] and [[Caoimhe Guilfoyle|Caoimhe]] left yesterday. She takes it for granted that it was left by Big Brother.
Speaking of that wicked threesome, they discover the broken cigarettes in the bathroom…finally. Rachael is fuming, pun definitelty intended.
Caoimhe bitches to [[John James Parton|John James]] about [[Steve Gill|Steve]]’s snoring. And Josie, Govan and Nathan are in bed together being giddy and singing songs. [[Ben Duncan|Ben]] blows all speculation about him and Mario out of the water by saying that he likes Rachael. Oooh-er!
The quiz commences, with the Tree giving Mario the answers. We find out that [[Dave Vaughan|Dave]] looked after chickens, and [[Nathan Dunn|Nathan]] drank champaigne from a stillettoe once. He pretends to be upset when they accuse him of having an earpiece in. Caoimhe comforts him!
Cleverly, he throws the next answer, holding up a Steve card instead of John James – who believes that an anti-ageing light staves off wrinkles. But he gets the next one right and eventually wins the quiz. He gets a reward – a party to be held in his honour! He gets to choose the theme of the party…except the Tree tells him what to choose.
To make it even worse, he has to nominate a housemate who won’t be at the party. He chooses John James, who is given the role of caterer instead. He doesn’t look happy about it either.
Sunshine talks to Big Brother…and offers to become the mole instead of Mario. That’s an interesting offer. Does she want to know what Mario’s secret is, or does she want the extra exposure? Big Bro turns her down anyway.
In the bedroom, John James is bitching about Rachael, saying “she wouldn’t give you a pot to piss in”. He thinks some of the girls are scmoozing up to Mario because as the mole, he’s the focus of the show right now. That’s some astute thinking from the Aussie.
The rest of the hosuemates are invited to the task room to dress in grass skirts and boogie in a Hawaii themed setting. While they relax, John James starts his catering job – and he’s not happy. He has to make all the food from scratch, and he clearly hasn’t got a clue.
John James takes a swipe at Big Brother in the Diary Room for giving him the catering. Meanwhile, the Tree tells Mario to crawl through a vent into the living room and destroy everything in the kitchen. This is gold. He smwears pizza on the patio window, throws stuff around, wrecks the table and puts a pizza in the shower. Big Brother continues to distract John James in the Diary Room. This is brilliant.
Moley makes a quick escape through the secret tunnel. John James returns to the house and discovers the destruction of the kitchen. He goes straight to the task room and tells the others. To be fair, the other housemates think it’s hilarious. Corin says she ain’t bovvered. Steve points the finger at Mario for being in the bathroom for a long time. But Ife tells Steve that if he is involved, it might be for a task that could help them. That girl is switched on. Rachael and Sunshine discover the vent in the bathroom and race to investigate.
Mario gets tough with Sunshine: “Sunshine. I like you but I’m getting sick of you accusing me all the time.”
Big Bro brings the housemates into the garden and tells them that there’s a mole living among them. They have to write down the name of the person they think is the mole. Knowing that Mario may well be the mole, most of the housemates nominate Sunshine instead. She takes it like the poor sport she is. She looks genuinely distressed. Guess who’s going to be the first housemate nominated?
I think we all cheered when Mario was told he was an official housemate now. He gets to sleep in the bedroom and ditch the mole costume! The housemates should put Sunshine into the mole hole now.
Sunshine’s still gurning in the bedroom. She’s deduced that people might have nominated her because she’s a bit of a pain. Shabby tells her that she didn’t know who it was, and [[Govan Zachariah Hinds|Govan]] apologises for having nominated her. She doesn’t let it go, even when Govan goes to great lengths to reassure her. And she cries. And cries.
Can I start the first chant of the series? Get Sunshine Out. Get Sunshine Out.
How does this end? Well, Govan doesn’t say anything to Sunshine, but he later confides in Shabby that he’s none too happy with Sunshine. He seemed to feel the weeping was a sympathy act for the viewers, and finished off by suggesting that she was at the center of all the conflict in the house so far. I agree.
Get Sunshine Out.
