Day 64

25 June 2006

Posted by Tim

8.41am – John and Gaelan are feeding the animals and letting them walk around for a bit. In the house Krystal is lying in bed, feeling sore after her fall last night. Her breast is still really sore, and it feels like its falling down. Outside John is having fun petting the sheep, but the finds the sheep is getting a little too relaxed and pees on his hand. Gaelan starts laughing and John runs to wash off his hand.

In the rewards room Claire is having a bath and Rob sits by her with their breakfast.

Jamie is walking around the house singing commercial music – this is a rule break. Big Brother annouces he must wash all the windows in the garden. Jamie doesn’t seem to care and just says “thanks buddy”. He gets a $5000 fine for calling BB “buddy”. Perry needs to be filled in on what the fine is for… David says its for disrespecting Big Brother. Perry says you shouldn’t disrespect anyone.

11.58am – Gaelan comes to the diary room. Big Brother asks how Krystal is – he says she’s in a little bit of pain. BB asks how this is making him feel – he says he feels for her but its not affecting his relationship with her – its strengthening it and he wants to spend time helping her.

Outside while Jamie washes the windows Jamie says if he was working harder to earn the money in the house would he be more respectful to Big Brother. Jamie says its difficult to answer because its not relevant to his personality – he has never worked hard for money – he doesn’t really care about it – he spends it on anything. Perry asks how he gets along if he doesn’t care about money. Jamie says thats why he never has clothes, and is struggling. Perry doesn’t think he is struggling. Jamie says he pretty much gets by on a string… and he doesn’t care about it. Camilla attempts to give a final answer for Jamie, but Perry isn’t impressed and calls her the “voice from behind”. Camilla says sorry but she just wanted to contribute to the conversation.

Jamie gives his final answer: if he had a million dollars he wouldn’t care about $5000… he would only worry when it got down to his last $20 and he’d think “crap, I’ve gotta buy a six pack for my mates”.

Perry: How old are you Jamie?

Jamie: 23… on Wednesday.

BREAK

1.15pm – Lauren comments to Camilla if Jamie’s standoffish attitude lately is his normal behaviour. Camilla says the fact that he is around new people is making it worse… plus when he nominated he takes it as a rejection from the rest of the housemates. Camilla and Lauren both agree you have to just deal with it because its part of the game.

Jamie is singing commercial music again. He’s called to the diary room.

BB: It appears the message that you’re not allowed to sing commercial music in the Big Brother house is getting through. You have plenty of time to think about what you have done, while you are scrubbing the hot tub deck with a toothbrush.

This time Darren needs filled in on the rules about singing. Jamie sits down and scrubs the deck. Perry says it will teach him the value of a dollar.

The boys all talk around the deck. Ashley says “you know what I’m sick off… Perry’s life”. Ashley, Jamie and John all agree they are sick of Perry’s philosophies and life experience. John is especially sick of the obvious logical things Perry says, like “you only live once, you only live once”. Meanwhile Perry is talking to the other housemates about her experiences with mortgages.

Lauren is in the sauna on her own. She doesn’t look too happy, and puts a black headband on her head ala-Jamie.

Lauren: Like hi, like my name is Jamie.. like. I’m too cool to talk to intruders like. Like yeah.. like wow.

5.17pm – Darren and David are cooking and measuring ingredients. Perry comes in and tells them what the proportions should be. The phrase “six or one, twelve or nothing” turns the house into confusion… especially Darren who says it doesn’t make sense.. and then tries to explain what it means. Perry doens’t want to hear it and they start yelling at each other. Perry tells Darren to behave.

Krystal is doing Claire’s makeup in the bedroom. Perry comes in and says “good on you Krystal!”. They think Claire’s makeup looks good.

Darren tells David that Perry never lets people explain things, and it really annoys him. The conversation stops when Perry comes back into the living room to do some cleaning. Darren suggests she could beat the rug outside with tbe boys, but Perry says no, she won’t do that. Darren has had enough and just stops trying to talk to her. David tries to back up Darren but Perry kills the conversation:

Perry: No! What part do you not understand? The N or the O!?

BREAK

7.32pm – It’s time to go… Lauren. Perry keeps asking “was that real?”. Lauren gives everyone a hug and she leaves quite quickly. Perry screams “I’m saved! I’m in! The oldie!”. Rob reminds everyone there is another eviction coming up. Perry tells all the “kids” to be careful because things will now change. She high-fives Darren congratulations on staying.

Camilla: I really liked Lauren

Perry: So you’re saying you don’t like us?

Camilla: No, I’m allowed to mourn the loss of a friend

Perry: Oh.. yeah of course.

It’s time to go… Rob. Rob thanks everyone and says he’s enjoyed his journey in every step of the way. After he has left Krystal, Camilla and Claire all hug each other. Jamie has forgotten about Rob already and reminds everyone its his birthday this Wednesday, jumping around in excitement.

Later in the bedroom Claire tells Jamie she is now moving into his bed with him, if thats ok. It is. Camilla says she just needs to get out of the bedroom the intruders are in. In the kitchen Darren comments it will be interesting how Perry reacts now that Rob is gone.. because they were very close. Talk of sleeping arrangements continues in the bedroom: Camilla says Darren is very “touchy feely” and she doesn’t really like that when she’s in bed with him. Also, Perry is so loud and she needs a break from that. “Its such a small bedroom for two big personalities”.

BREAK

10.43pm – Rob’s goodbye message is playing. Rob says Jamie and John are the naughty boys of the house but no one should change to make other people happy and thats what he learnt from his run ins with Jamie. Rob says he learnt a lot from David and hopefully vice versa – he has been tought a very manly quality – to step up to the plate whenever there is a problem. Camilla has welcomed David in and taking him in and befriended him and loved him and put up with his moods. Rob will miss her and the way she ruffles feathers in the house. He thanks them all for the time in the house and will see them all one day very very soon. The housemates all clap.

Later in the bedroom Darren says he was going to move out of his bedroom but didn’t want to offend Camilla. Camilla however has already decided she will be moving, and tells him that Perry is annoying her. “I don’t want to sound … if you moved out and I had my own bed it would be easier”. Darren is a little taken back and says she shouldn’t have offered him a place to sleep with her in the first place then. Camilla explains there are too many big personalities in that bedroom and she feels suffocated. Camilla thinks that if both of them moved it would be too obvious.

Darren: Why don’t Perry come out and sleep with Jamie?

The housemates all try to get involved but Camilla tells them she and Darren will sort it out on their own. Things get confusing for Darren as to why this is happening, and Camilla says its so she has her own space.

Darren raises his voice, saying he’s not taking it as a peronal attack but wants to know why exactly she’s moving away. Camilla explains again but Darren is confused. Camilla leaves the bedroom and Darren screams out something censored. In the living room Krystal tells Camilla they should consult Jamie because the person moving will be sleeping in his bed and maybe he doesn’t want to sleep with a stranger. Jamie says yes, he would rather sleep with Camilla. She goes back into the bedroom and resolves things with Darren.

Perry: It’s childish behaviour honestly, it is, isn’t it Jamie?

Jamie: Uh yeah I’m staying out of it

Perry: I’m staying out of it too. I don’t have time for it Jamie… and as we grow we learn that… you don’t have time for it.
