Ben enters the round house, and while wondering around, realises he’s all alone. He sits quietly and waits, at one point laughing to himself in disbelief.
An hour later the square housemates enter their house, and immediately call out to Ben who they saw at the launch show. Big Brother has left food for them, but the housemates are more interested in finding Ben. They suggest there is another room somewhere. Later, Irena realises there is no kitchen, and there are quickly theories of multiple houses. Irena thinks there is a second story. She spots a grassy knoll, and Carlo says that’s where they have burried Ben.
Back in the round house Ben lies down and swears. Time goes by Ben says “if they get voted out…”.
Irena in the square house is a tad annoyed at so few people, but they all toast to their time in the house and introduce each other. They are having a good time while Ben looks very bored all on his lonesome. Irena proposes a Georgian toast to everyone.
Big Brother annouces to Ben that the store room is now open. He goes there, and finds dinner for one. Ben can’t believe it, and laughs. Square housemates are more concerned with finding out where Ben and the other housemates are. But Ben can’t hear them – he’s eating dnner on his own, looking annoyed.
Later Irena explains she had a big problem with the amount of shoes she wanted to bring into the house. Claire brings out a harmonica and Irena a country looking hat. Belinda has a belt and jokes that if any of them are naughty they will get a spanking with the belt. Carlo says he’s been really naughty and sticks his bum out in the air. Carlo quickly finds out who is single or not. Jaime and Claire both reveal they are bisexual. Belinda says thats exciting. Carlo says his Canadian girlfriend is great and marriage material. Beinda wants to meet her, so Carlo pulls out some photos. Jaime and Carlo organise a mustache competition.
8.44pm – Ben is called to the diary room. Inside BB welcomes him, and tells him its been an interesting start. Ben says BB has got him this time – he has no idea whats going on, and he doesn’t like not having much control over the situation. The diary room has a camera sticking out of the wall with a small sign saying “look here”. Ben doesn’t want alcohol tonight so his mind is clear.
It’s all talk over in the square house, where HMs are learning each other’s names. Belinda proposes a game. They go name and nickname and Claire starts with Claire-Bear. Carlo-Monty. Irena-Poopsie. Jaime-Chewy? Carlo cracks some gross jokes and the other HMs aren’t so impressed. BB asks for one housemate to see him, and Belinda runs to the diary room. Inside BB asks her if it’s as she expected. Belinda says it’s amazing – five people… “where are the others?”. BB asks whats going on with Ben, but Belinda is stumped.. she asks “is he on his own?”. BB can’t say. The theory in the square house is that the other housemates are in another house, because she has spotted a strange shadow on the roof.
Ben is in another house, but not with the other housemates. Ben is very picky about his bedding and fusses around with it before lying down. He reads in bed.
10.13pm – The boys of the square house are having a chat outside. Carlo doesn’t think BB would just reject people from entering the house like that. They both think the complex is too big for just one house. Inside the girls are talking about who’s taken or not. Claire and Jaime are the only two who are single. Belinda has been in her relationship for three years. They bought a house together when she was 18. Outside Carlo says the girls in the house are nice, but they are no Tracey (his girlfriend).
Later, Belinda and Carlo kick around a ball inside. Irena is organising alcohol distribution – one glass per day.
11.01pm – Irena has the urge to go raid the fridge. She eats cake directly out of the fridge, and makes a mess.
Belinda is talking about Europeans… she uses her hand to say European men have great penis girth. Carlo says the language helps a lot. Belinda wants Carlo to teach her some Italian. Belinda turned 20 last month and already wants kids. Randomly Jaime asks if girls hate it when guys pull on their leg hair (if they haven’t shaved). Jaime says he was only joking before about being bi. Irena says “you’re not cool anymore”.
