Day 53 Uplate
23 June 2004
Mike welcomes us to the show, starts off with the usual stuff. Still only 4 people know the secret. We finally cross over to the house. Cath reckons it’s half past 12. Paul agrees saying it’s near midnight. Current time is actually 11:37pm. Ryan is watching Paul and Catherine who are on duty for the task. We cut to the kitchen and Ash and Bree are trying to find something nice to eat. They can’t. They talk about eating some rice. They look back to the house to see Ryan dancing, but Mike cuts away so we don’t see it. He starts the first brain teaser. The task is that they have a clock in the house, which doesn’t work. Whenever BB asks for a time check, they must be within a 10 minute window. BB told them the correct time when they started the task. Back to the house, with Ryan, Trev, Paul and Catherine in the living area. Ryan is dissapointed he showed a cigarette trick to people in the house. Ryan asks Paul if he fishes. He says he has rods, but doesn’t ever go. He can’t sit there unless their biting. Ryan says he’s the same. They realise the girls are eating the last of the fried rice. Ryan complains about the oil in the food. They say it’s good for the bowels though. Ryan says nothing comes out in here. They say it’s because of the bread. No fibre in it or something. Paul says he didn’t eat any bread today. It seems that Wes and Kane are in bed. Ryan reckons he has lost weight. Everyone else thinks they have put some on. Ryan decides to go to the diary room. Paul jokes to ask BB for a time check. He reckons it must be quarter past 12 by now. It’s 11:48pm. Paul sits on the couch and calculates how much food they need to keep. He and Cath talk about what they’ve eaten today. They realise Wes has snuck off to bed. Mike tells us about the brain teaser, then back to the house. They go back to talking about how many times they sit on the chair a day (toilet). Lovely chat. Bree joins Paul and Cath, with Ryan and Ash around with Trev saying that they haven’t been purely on staples this week because they had nice food left over from weeks past. They think next week will be a killer. Ryan starts talking about what he eats away from the BB house. He eats a heap. Ash can’t believe it. Ryan says he doesn’t eat a heap of Macca’s. But he will eat and still geel like more just after he’s eaten it, but half an hour later, the stomach feels terrible. Paul and Cath think it must be 20 past 12. Ryan suggests everyone goes to bed, but then realise two people must be there all the time. Mike cuts in again, and we go to a comm break.
12:07am – Rhonda wins the first cash of the night. Second game starts. Back to the house. Think they are talking about Survivor now. They reckon it’s about half past 12. Wes is up! They wonder if BB would have a seperate account for electricity or whether Dreamworld would pay it. They set it up so they can all hang around in the living room together. Mike cuts in, tells us the clue. Back after the break.
12:20am – Bree, Trev and Ryan are in the kitchen. Think Ash is there too. Ryan is eating away. They are wondering how long that only 4 will know the secret. Ryan starts talking about his flatmate. He sees a fair bit of him, he has become friends with the blokes at the footy club, and he seems to have a different girl home every Sat night-Sun morning. Ryan doesn’t mind though! Bree wonders if Ryan has a spare room! We cut back to the clock watchers. Wes decides to go back to bed, while Paul and Cath continue to sit in silence. Comm break.
12:33am – Leslie wins the second round of cash. Oh no, actually she has hung up LOL. They are going to try to get her back. Back to the house, because BB is about to ask for a time check. Paul and Cath are talking about the cuckoo clocks. Cath says she gets used to it, but if someone stays over they wonder how the hell they can sleep through it. Mike comes back cause Leslie is back on the line. She wins the cash this time round. Game three commences. Back to the house, it’s time for a time check! They decide that they will go for 1am. Only 20 minutes out. They lose! Paul, Wes and Cath go off to bed, leaving Ryan and Bree to take over. Trev is around to keep them company. Ryan says that he lost his mates $800 digital camera just before he came into the house. His mate was really good about it though, saying he liked a $400 one and just to get him that. Comm break.
12:46am – Brain teaser time, well the clue anyway. Uplate update. Cut back to the house. Bree wonders how often Ryan takes girls out on dates. He says hardly ever. He says since he’s been back in Adelaide, 2 and a half years, he’s been on a handful of dates but no one has ever been serious. Bree reveals that her first date ever was only a month before she came into the BB house. She says it went downhill when Bree ordered a vodka and the guy stuck with Coke. Comm break.
12:57am – Someone wins the third lot of cash. Last game starts up. Back to the house now. Bree is explaining how she went out with this guy for only a couple of ‘minutes’, and she thought he was mature, but then realised he was that up himself he wasn’t for her. Mike cuts in very quickly though and we go to another uplate update. Comm break.
Awesome conversation in the house between Ryan, Trev and Bree. Trev is saying that his mum doesn’t drink, and when they get blind, her mum used to take care of them and put his friends in the livingroom and tell them that they ‘will pay for getting drunk in the morning!’ Ryan says his folks like brandy. When he goes to visit, he often joins them drinking that. At Christmas, he says he’ll have a few beers, but his folks would have never seen him acting like ‘rootman’ or anything like that. Bree also agrees, saying that they will have never seen her like she has been when drunk. Bree’s mum has recently seperated from her husband of 35 years, and while Bree says that she has got her sense of humour back, she is heartbroken. Ryan asks why they split up, but she doesn’t want to talk about it in there. She says she’ll tell him one day. Ryan asks if she saw it coming. Bree says no. Mike cuts us away for a comm break.
1:25am – Natalie is the last winner of the cash for the night. Back to the house. They are talking about how they had the plan to try to get the other housemates to think that Bree and Ryan were really keen on each other. Trev says he totally had Cath. Even afterwards, she kept saying to Bree ‘you would be happy with each other.’ Ryan says she said that to him too. Trev kept stiring her saying “You never know Cath, after a few drinks!” Priceless! Uplate update though now. Then he reads out some emails. Ooah thats it actually. Goodnight Mike & gang.
