The finale

Evening all to what should be a magnificent evening. Neighbours credits are rolling, and we’re ready to commence the last BB for 2003.

And we’re away. Credits first as per normal, live crowd heard in background though. Shots of the crowd, before Mike welcomes us to the final eviction, then introduces Gretel, who has her hair down and looks stunning. White Pants and a sequence type white top. Gretel has a story to tell the audience, who seems to have Reggie and Chrissie cardboard cut outs of their faces. Anyway, she tells the story of BB2003, from the beginning, until there were only two girls left. Tonight we choose the queen of BB Land. Will it be Chrissie? Or Reggie? Slightly bigger yell for Reggie. SMS lines have shut, but the phone lines are still open, leading Gretel into calling them out.

Now, the nation was in shock when Daniel went last night, leaving two girls to fight it out. Gretel crosses to the house now! They are just laughing away sitting on the couch. Gretel asks them why they are nervous. Chrissie is nervous because they don’t know what is going on. Reggie says that she should get the rest of the M&M’s given to her as a present. Gretel suggests giving them to charity. Chrissie says it felt like Christmas eve last night, it dragged on so long. Gretel will be crossing back to them later. Now it’s time to catch up on what has happened in the last 24 hours.

After Dan’s eviction, the girls have a drink outside, and the girls are in total shock. Chrissie tells Reg that she is going to win, and Reg can’t get her head around that. Onto Dan’s video message. He gets through Reggie’s message OK, but when it comes to Chrissie, it brings him to tears.

Into the morning, Chrissie is up early cause she can’t sleep. They say in a few hours they will both be outside. Chrissie went back to bed in the morning, as did Reggie this afternoon. Back to the stage we travel. Gretel says that it is the first time in the world where two girls are in the final ’round.’ Back after the break with the 14 other housemates!

Back again with baby photo’s of all the housemates. Lots of “ooh’s” in the audience. Now, Gretel is back and it’s time to run through the phone numbers again. Now, all 14 housemates enter the stage. Jo has a ridiculous mini skirt on! They all head up to the couch. First to Dan, who is feeling pretty good. He had only a couple of hours sleep. He is ready for tonight. Now they are going to have clip packages intertwined with questions. The first package is of Irena, Jaime and Carlo. Irena has had an amazing time since coming out, and has met so many wonderful people. Jaime has had an awesome time, and encourages anyone to try out. Carlo is great, and is still with Tracy. Next clip package is of Leah, Belinda, Ben and Claire. Back to the couch, Leah’s hair looks shocking, and she is having fun as a blonde. Belinda is looking forward to going back to the salon and work. Ben had fun down in Tassie last night, and Claire is so excited seeing everyone again. Cut to a comm break, the rest will be introduced after the break. Creeping up on closing time for the phone lines as well, 7:25pm.

Secret Life of Us ad before we return to BB. Gretel is still on the couch, giving the phone numbers for the final time. Now back to the other housemates. The next clip package is of Jo, Saxon, Kim and Jamie. Lines have shut, so not far away from the announcement. Now, back to Jo. Jo is with Tim, and very happy. Kim does look great tonight! She is still with Richard, and is moving! Now Saxon, who is single. He is just having fun at the moment. Onto Jamie, he hasn’t fallen in love yet. Now onto the clip package fro Vincent, Patrick and Daniel. Vincent is still with Danielle (GF), and is having a crazy time! Patrick has also had a crazy week, and he is loving it. Now Daniel, who gets a massive cheer, where they talk about how he has only met some of these people for the first time tonight. Cross to the house for BB to do his announcement. “There will be a final eviction very soon.” Reggie goes all excited, and they try to go back to their conversation, but she is far too worked up now. Chrissie looks quite relaxed actually!

Back with clip package of evicted housemates walking down the audience. Gretel is still on the couch, and is now with the loved ones. Chrissie’s sister and Mum, and Reggie’s sister and Adrian. Liz was in the audience last night, and was so nervous. She never expected her to last till the end. She says she is popular out of the house though too. Onto Anita, who also thought she would not make it this far. Adrian looks like a nervous wreck! Chrissie’s mum is close to tears! She has enjoyed the time, has become an addict of the show. She doesn’t know what she is going to do now BB is over. Onto Adrian, who gets a cheer, who says Reggie doesn’t hold anything back. He is used to her though. He says that everything Reggie has said to do with the shop he knew about. He has never felt like he would lose her though. Now, I think the time has come. Here we go, we cross to the house. She gets the envelope, says hello to the housemates, Reggie is crying away, they are holding hands. Gretel says good luck. The winner of BB2003 is Reggie. She just cries, and they have a long hug on the couch. Chrissie seems so happy for her. Gretel says it’s time to go, Chrissie. The countdown starts, and they make their way outside. Across the pool, and one last hug, Chrissie is gone, and Reg is left alone. A bit different tonight outside for Chrissie. Chrissie gets into a nice car, I think it is going to be hers, but before she does she says hello to the security guard, and says they all love her! Comm break.

Back at the compound we are, the new car pulls up, and Gretel welcomes Chrissie. She is stunned at the crowd! Gretel tells us that the car is hers, she says “Get Out!” She gets to walk the eviction walk now. She just keeps saying “oh my god” all the way down! She lets her baby hands be touched by a special few, and before long she is greeted by Gretel once more on stage. “This is all crazy!” The audience chant “Chrissie”. She takes a photo of Chrissie and the audience, then gives her the phone. She loves it, she says “I love free stuff!” Now, she thought she would go sometime in the first few weeks. She says she was happy to get in. Cut to clip of “Sister Chrissie.” She laughs as she watches. Now, cut to “Evil Chrissie!” Chrissie loved watching that! She says she isn’t normally like that though! Gretel reminds her that she was the only one to stand up to Ben. They cross to Reggie. LOL, as they cut to the break, Chrissie is having the time of her life talking to the audience, and they when she realises that they are still showing a clip, she says “oooh, thats me!”

Back to a clip of “Laughing Chrissie!” She shows her legacy items, slippers and her nightie. Her charity is Brotherhood of St Lawrence Breakfast Club, where she volunteers every Monday morning. How nice is this girl :) Another present for Chrissie now, for the OS, she gets a signed first edition of her favourite book. She is really really pleased with that. Gretel tells her to put it down after a while! She says she loved the whole experience, she loved living with the boys. Cut to a clip of her friendships in the house! Straight to another clip package. More prezzies time! The Mastercard, the holiday and the PS2. And the DVD, almost forgot! Now, back to the house, BB says ” Regina, you will be leaving in just a few minutes.” LOL, she says “Haha, your funny Mr Big! Just hurry up would you.” Ah, she is a classic our Reggie :) Now, back with Gretel who goes through the best dressed competition. The envelope arrives, and the winner of the Plasma screen is Reggie’s fish and chips! Cut to a break, but Reggie is coming out straight after it.

Here we go, Reggie saying “Come on, come on. Hurry up!” Gretel comes into the house! She says “You little champ!” She starts crying again (Reggie!) Leah screams over the fence one last time for them to get out! Poor Reggie is a nervous wreck. Fireworks and they are out of the house! LOL, there is Irena, who she has never met! LOL. Now Jaime, who she never met. Carlo now, and then Leah. She finally knows someone. Long hug to Belinda! Fat Bobby!!!!! She is balling now, poor girl. As they go down, they have people dressed in the different tasks they did which is a good addition to the walk this year. She greets Claire, and then Jo. Huge hug for her. Kimareee!!! Next is Saxon, who says a few nice things to Reg. Jamie is next to greet her. Vincent is next. Reggie is just laughing and crying all the way through. It was better when Ben and Pete who really seemed overjoyed at seeing everyone again. Reg just seems to upset. Anyway, onto Patrick, big hug for Pat. There’s Dan, huge hug for him! Over the bridge they go, and then Chrissie appears. Chrissie hasn’t seen any of the housemates either, so she is hugging everyone too! They stop just outside for a comm break, just before they let her enter the compound.

Back again! The crowd screaming Reggie, and here she comes! All by herself, in the end where the eviction van normally rolls up. She is talking to herself throughout it all! All the evicted housemates are up the stairs where Gretel usually comes out from. She finally gets down to the stage, and is greeted by Gretel. They sit down on the couch, and she gets the phone. Now, Gretel says she won $250,000 to which Reggie says “I thought it would be a Playstation!” LOL. When Gretel tells her she gets the Playstation, she seems even more excited! LOL, Gretel tells us that they are going to show a few clips now, so she gives her a huge bowl of M&M’s. First clip package of our winner. Back after that to Gretel, who cuts to a break. She too realises half way through they are showing a clip package on the way too a break!

Back again on the home stretch. She has her skirt for her charity item. Gretel tells us all that we can bid for her items. Now, another present, she gets a home gym, but they don’t bring it on stage. Cut to another clip of Reggie. Voting is 28% for Reggie, 72% for Chrissie. Now, another clip package. Now, the hard questions. She says she is happier than when she went in. Onto the 10 questions. Hardest thing was nominating. Missed Campell and Adrian the most. She loved everyone, she didn’t have a least fave. Most annoying habit was her farting, funniest was no answer, laziest was Ben, greatest regret was she didn’t have one. Now, here comes Adrian. LOL, Reg says “New shirt!” New watch too! Adrian says he is happy and proud, and Reg just says it’s weird seeing him! After the break, everyone comes on stage for the final time.

Back to the show, and a replay of the announcement. Everyone is on the couch. Clip package of everything now. Reg says she can’t think clearly! Credits start rolling. Reg says she never thought she would win. Reg says the watch of Adrian’s was dear! First thing she wants to do is have a scotch. Gretel thanks everyone, Carlo starts eating the M&M’s in the meantime, Gretel thanks the audience, thanks everyone at home, everyone behind the scenes, then tells us that next Monday at 7:30pm a program called “Reggie Rules.” Gretel says goodbye, the housemates get up to greet the audience, and BB ends for another year.

Day 84

10:49am – Regina has spent the morning in the spa by herself, and enters the bedroom to greet Dan and Chrissie who have just woken up. She comments it’s very windy outside today. She is very excited and squeals – “it’s only one day to go!”. Chrissie comments “one more sleep!”.

1:56pm – Big Brother has instructed the housemates to give the house a spring clean. Dan will have his soup lunch first, and they will all clean together. Later while they are cleaning, Regina wonders what she will do tomorrow now because that was the day she had scheduled herself to do all the cleaning.

7:33pm – Housemates have been given takeaway dinner as a reward for cleaning the house. Over the dinner table, they talk about what they will do first when they leave the house.

Chrissie says she will grab a coffee, take it to the newsagent, and buy magazines. Go home and read them and play with Joseph (her cat). He plays with the pages sometimes as she turns them.

Regina will wake up at half past four to go to the shop… “I can just see it all happening”. Chrissie asks if thats what she wants to do. Regina says she will do it for a little while then visit Nan. Have a hot bath, just sit in the hot bath and listen to music.

Dan will try to catch up with his friend, do some shopping – buy some stuff to see what thats like again. Check if he has still got work and if he can get back into that.

Chrissie will need to check up if she has a job left too. On the other hand Regina says she won’t be any different to friends and family. “It will still be the same”. She doesn’t sound too enthusiastic.

Daniel jokes he will become a “popstar asshole” and hate everybody. Regina wonders if some one did that in the past. She hopes she can go back but not go back to the way she was before coming into the house.. being miserable and cranky. She doesn’t want to be like that at all. “I’m just wondering how longs it going to take before it just… goes like that”. Chrissie will find it hard to be along for a long time.

11:01pm – Housemates are now lying on their beds. Regina comments this time tomorrow night she will be so busy. Chrissie can see it clear as day… two chicks on the round lounge on the final night.

Chrissie and Regina together: It’s not going to happen, though.

Also on Behind Big Brother

Day 83

10:28am – Chrissie is at the kitchen table. She says it is so exciting. Daniel jokes: “because we just hang around so much here! It’s exciting to think that stuff can happen”. Chrissie and Dan smile at each other.

Chrissie: You could win it… I’m not going to win it. It’s cool that I won’t, I just can’t believe it that I’ll be there when you and Reg… I wanted you or Reggie to win it. I said that months ago. I’m so glad, so happy how it’s worked out. The two people I wanted to win it have a big chance and I’m here to watch it all.

Daniel: And if they don’t win it you will.

Chrissie: That won’t happen.

Regina is soaking up some sun on the deck while Chrissie and Daniel continue their conversation. Chrissie comments its great there will be a girl at the end of it. Dan says there will be at least one girl… maybe even two. Daniel has always thought that girls can’t win Big Brother so Chrissie comments he must be feeling quite confident. Daniel doesn’t though: he thinks that Regina has a big following and is just so appealing to people. “She’s so bright and cheery”. Chrissie doesn’t know how people will be able to choose between Regina and Daniel. Daniel meanwhile is interested in how well his votes tally up considering he’s survived so nominations.

Chrissie soon joins Regina and tells her that Daniel doesn’t think a girl can win Big Brother, which causes Regina to crack up laughing. They both agree they will give him a run for his money. Chrissie has seen Daniel has been very relaxed while the others were freaking out. Regina comments that “we’ll show you something Dan the man… put him back in his place, put him back in his box”.

1:24pm – The girls wonder what they can cook to pass the time. They propose scones with whatever ingredients are left in the kitchen. Regina jumps up and says she will give it a go.

2:11pm – The scones are coming out of the oven. Chrissie can’t believe Regina actually made them – “you’re such a little ripper. You’re a superstar Regina!”.

Chrissie: You’re a legend. You’re a Regend.

Daniel: If only Australia could taste them, then you’d win for sure.

The housemates eat their scones in silence.

4:27pm – Chrissie is still excited about the final evictions. “It is so me this Sunday. I just can’t stop seeing my sister’s face”.

Chrissie: It’s time to go… Chrissie

Regina acts out her shocked eviction face. However she reckons Chrissie is wrong about her self-eviction prediction. Regina refuses to believe Chrissie despite what Chrissie says. Regina is more concerned about Chrissie and Daniel being split up – she can’t picture it happening. Chrissie reassures her it would only be for a few days but after the show finishes it’s going to happen anyway. Regina says there aren’t enough people in Tassie to vote for her. Chrissie scoffs, and says it’s not just people in Tasmania voting.

Chrissie imagines if they get out and two people from the house have formed a couple.

Regina: Yeah you and Dan… is that what you meant?

Chrissie: No! Are you joking? Do you think I have the hots for Dan? Oh my god!

Regina laughs and Chrissie clarifies: people who are already outside the house. Regina thought she meant if she was evicted and left the Chrissie-Daniel couple in the house. Then they go through odd couple combinations: Patrick and Claire, Patrick and Leah.

Chrissie: That would almost be against the law, wouldn’t it?

Chrissie laughs again about her and Dan.

5:57pm – Big Brother annouces the store room is open. The girls think there is nothing in there, but Daniel checks anyway. Inside he finds snacks and drinks. At first he doesn’t show them the basket, but when the girls eventually see it Chrissie says “oh get out!” and Regina screams “oohhh what! No way!”.

7:14pm – Big Brother has provided the housemates with a camera video game. After some setting up, Chrissie is first. Regina can’t believe how the game works. The first game involves Chrissie bouncing a soccer ball on her head. Everyone is amazed at how the game works.

8:32pm – Regina is playing a boxing game and is knocking out her opponent. She giggles along. She knocks out the opponent and jumps for joy. It’s a new high score so she must pose and the game takes her photo.

9:45pm – Daniel is now playing the boxing game. He takes a different approach by slapping his opponent. He pulls a scary face while the others laugh on.

10:16pm – The group pose while the game takes their photo. Afterwards, Regina says it was great…

Regina: That was it, thats it, our last Friday night.

Chrissie: Don’t get all lumpy in the throat Gina, you’re going to kill me with all that stuff.

Day 82

9:38am – Regina is having a late morning up – even though she’s still the first. Dan and Chrissie hover around in the bedroom too tired to get up just yet. Regina decides she will have toast with honey for breakfast today. The topic of video messages is still on everyone’s mind. In the bedroom Daniel tells Chrissie he was glad Adrian (Regina’s husband) did a video message. They can see why Regina liked Ben so much, because he was so much like Adrian. Chrissie thinks Adrian is so handsome.

Chrissie comes to greet Regina, who is watching her toast cook in grill. Chrissie just had an urge to see Regina suddenly this morning, and has now acted upon it. Regina can’t stop thinking about her video message either. It’s only three sleeps until Big Brother is over. Chrissie comments she’s nowhere near as scared as she was before because of the comforting feeling the video messages have given them. Chrissie is overwhelmed with the support Regina has on the outside world.

Dan is now up and about in the kitchen. Tonight the housemates must parade their costume for the task. Regina and Chrissie have already finished but Dan hasn’t even started. Later in the day, Daniel is sketching out a draft of his costume on the whiteboard. Later on, Daniel is cursing himself for leaving it too late.

3:36pm – Chrissie is unhappy with her costume “god what was I thinking! It’s too hot!”. But the show must go on: housemates move outside to parade their costumes to Big Brother. Chrissie is first, with Regina commentating: the hate represents the city of Melbourne, where Chrissie was brought up and lives. The big red smiley face on her dress represents laughter. The dog on the costume is Beanie, her pet on the outside, along with Joseph the cat. Cups of coffee hang from the costume representing Chrissie’s love of coffee.

Next up is Daniel with commentary from Chrissie: Dan is a superhero, with the ability to jump Big Brother houses in a single bound. “A furry sexual embodiment of animal, man and superhero. Juxtaposed in a hotty outfit with an open crotch”.

Regina has commentary from Daniel: “Presenting this season’s little black dress”. On the front of the dress is a square and circle – representing her time in both BB houses. There is also pictures of Adrian and Campbell (her dog) surrounded by love hearts.

6:00pm – Housemates are now reading out their speeches.

Dan says he has gained a few kilos in the house. He has also gained experience and happiness in good company. Leaving with or without a prize is a new adventure. He can’t wait to see what adventures he has ahead of him.

Chrissie says during her time in the house she has seen that average stuff gets in the way of having stupid fun and being yourself. She’s really enjoyed this time because it’s like being locked away in a test lab where there are no distractions and only have stupid fun and relax.

Regina says her life in the house has been an unbelievable journey. She has spent it with people who are now her very special friends. She has never danced, laughed, cried so much in her life and she hopes when she leaves she keeps these wonderful feelings.

6:16pm – Dan is impressed at Regina’s speech, and says this to Chrissie in the bedroom. He wonders where that speech came from. Regina meanwhile is cleaning the living room. Chrissie draws parallels between her life and Chrissie’s life: they get so distracted by working they don’t have any time to have fun or find themselves, and now Big Brother has let them do this.

6:43pm – Back in week three Chrissie said she hoped Regina or Daniel won. Dan thinks it would be cool if Reg went back to Tasmania with the prize money, considering there were people there that weren’t supportive of her going on the show. Regina says it will be interesting going back. Dan and Chrissie admit they didn’t have any people who would say “I told you so”.

Big Brother tells the housemates to sit at the table briefly. Once they are seated BB announces the task was completed successfully. Now the housemates will get takeaway food of one of the housemate’s choice. Dan requested Thai, Chrissie requested Greek and Regina requested pizza. The scores for the task are Dan: 26, Regina: 29 and Chrissie: 30. The housemates are having Greek for dinner. Reg congratulates Chrissie. She says this means she’s going on Sunday. Reg screams “no it doesn’t!”.

7:27pm – BB announces dinner is served in the kitchen cupboard. Regina screams out “what!?”. Chrissie isn’t surprised, she heard strange noises coming from there earlier on. Regina looks through the food and exclaims “what the hell is that!?”. There is a lot of food, and Chrissie is ecstatic. Regina has no idea what the food is and Chrissie fills her in on all the names.

9:32pm – Chrissie wishes she had a book to read. Dan says he should wash his face tonight after the spa so he looks his best on Sunday. Chrissie and Regina agree. Dan can’t believe he’s here in the house now – he gave himself to fifth or sixth week to last. Regina dittos that. If Dan survives this eviction it will be the sixth nomination he has survived.

11:11pm – Housemates are in bed. Regina wonders how Chrissie and Dan are going to cope when they leave the house – because they live on their own and won’t have anyone to talk to like in the BB house. Daniel say she will probably be calling up people before he goes to bed. Reg suggests Dan call Chrissie.

Day 81

10:30am – Regina is making her costume for the task – it features her dog Campbell on it. For the special talent portion of the task, Chrissie has used her real estate writing skills to make an advertisement for the Big Brother house:

“Offering tree-top views and a feeling of seclusion, this near-new walled estate is heaven for seekers of the unique. Recreation is key here with lush landscaped gardens, a funky rectangular pool and two deck terraces perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. The bedroom features an enormous open plan en-suite complete with it’s own foyer, four person shower and twin basins. A bright living room with timber floors, an open fireplace and high ceilings open out onto one of the dining decks while a super cabana style kitchen inspires culinary prowess with a full suite of european appliances: huge stainless steel refrigerator, and granite benchtops”

Regina is shocked.. and amazed Chrissie has a job where she is payed to write things like that. They laugh. Regina asks “can anyone do what you do? Or do you have to go to university to get a degree?”. Chrissie is relatively silent on the topic.

Tonight’s dinner will see each housemate cook one of their family favourites for the table. Chrissie is cooking a turkey, Regina is making a mud cake and Daniel is making pumpkin soup. Outside Chrissie comments the turkey they have is enough to feed 15 people – and Daniel has made enough soup to last them a week. He’s been preparing it for over an hour, and Chrissie says “surely there mustn’t be any lumps left in it… it will be the world’s most perfect soup”. Regina says it’s amazing how intricate he is. Chrissie says because she’s so busy she cuts corners and still has something to come out with at the end of it – however Daniel works maybe two days a week, and has all this time to perfect skills.

7:52pm – Housemates are sitting down to the world’s most perfect pumpkin soup. Chrissie says each person should say something about their course before the group eats it. Daniel says this soup is one of his favourites, it’s handy and good for you. He’s thankful that they’re down to the last three and with the two favourite people he’s had this whole time – genuine people who are open and sweet and on a level with him. They share a toast.

8:14pm – Regina is really unsure about returning to Tasmania. She doesn’t know what will happen now – Adrian has never seen this side of her. Even Regina says she’s never seen this side of her since high school. Regina is upset because she’s going to go back to “none of this at all”. The others tell her it will have to be her choice. She doesn’t want to be an annoying nagging cow to her husband though. If Regina was single she would just pack up and leave Tasmania – she was too young to get married, but Adrian doesn’t think so: “he’s too nice to be with me”. They all agree Regina and Adrian will need to discuss what happens next so Regina is happy and not tied down to the shop.

They sit down to Chrissie’s course. She says she can’t think of two better people to spend a concentrated week with. She’s had the time of her life and it’s a lot to do with the people she is eating with.

9:07pm – Housemates have been called to the living room and Big Brother announces there will be a special presentation. Shortly after Regina’s husband appears on the plasma screen and Regina screams out “oh no!”.

Adrian says they are all missing her like crazy and can’t wait to see her again. He says they need her back home because they love her. Regina is in tears. Regina’s sister Anita says they have been flat out at the fish and chip shop and can’t wait to see her. Regina’s grandma “Nan Johnson” is next and says Regina is a nice little girl. Anita says Regina has done Tasmania wonders. Many of Regina’s relatives then appear and chant “go Reggie!”.

Chrissie’s sister Elizabeth appears next with Chrissie’s baby nephew who has grown a lot since Chrissie last saw him. Elizabeth also has Chrissie’s cat Joseph with her, which gets Chrissie really excited. Elizabeth says Joseph has been starring into the television and meowing for Chrissie to be around. While the message is recording Elizabeth gets upset and says they have all missed Chrissie and can’t wait to see her again and have 1000 coffees together and talk about her time in the house.

Daniel looks anxious waiting for his video.

9:09pm – Dan’s message is now being played. It’s from his sister Jodie. His baby niece is happy and health and wearing a tshirt that says “yay uncle Dan”. Jodie says that if Dan ever wants to bring his new friends to dinner he’s welcome to. She invites Chrissie and Regina to come give Katyln (the niece) a cuddle. Jodie says everyone is glad Daniel has found the “different thing” he was looking for to experience in life. “I know that if mum and dad were still around they would be amazingly proud of you as well. You’re just a lovely guy to know and I know mum would be proud to see you as a grown up now Dad would be amazed at how much you’ve grown and changed”.

The video has left everyone in tears. Dan is upset while Chrissie and Regina laugh about their messages. There is a long silence as they contemplate their messages from home.

10:18pm – In the kitchen Regina gets quite upset about things. “It’s just hit.. so…”.

Regina: I noticed there was none of Adrian’s family… I mean it’s not surprising. Thats when I look back at Adrian and I think I feel sorry for him that his family isn’t in to it.

The others tell her she shouldn’t care what they think.

Regina: I think this has opened his eyes up… big time.

11:05pm – Housemates are now sitting down to Regina’s mud cake desert. Regina isn’t satisfied with her cooking, but Chrissie really likes it. Regina says she has enjoyed every single day in this house with everyone and she’s glad she’s with these two. Best of luck to whoever leaves the house last.

Chrissie: Good luck to both of yous you buggers.

Day 80

9:44am – Dan is up but he has yet to complete his poem for the task. Regina and Chrissie hang around on the kitchen steps and contemplate how their time is now going so fast and things will soon be coming to an end. The both don’t really want to go. Daniel meanwhile is trying to finish off his poem on the whiteboard in the living room. Chrissie comments to Regina how he is a perfectionist, and she wouldn’t really want to be like that. Daniel can’t understand Chrissie and Regina in that respect: he thinks they don’t really care about their poems but they are happy with what they have already. Regina says she would have grey hairs if she was that much of a perfectionist. Daniel wants to make movies but Chrissie and Regina say it might be difficult for him. Chrissie is worried Daniel won’t be able to find a partner that is compatible with that perfectionist side of things.

Regina draws parallels to her fish and chip business: she was always scared if some one else came in they wouldn’t run it as well as she did – but she eventually got over that feeling. They agree Dan never takes the easy road – considering how he dealt with his ex girlfriend. A little later Daniel calls out that he has finished some of the final verse. She says thats great.

2:57pm – Regina has started on her costume. Well.. almost. She’s sitting in the living room eating M&Ms and staring at the fabric.

In the kitchen Daniel says she has a new idea for a poem. Chrissie says thats great. He comments it helped to talk to Chrissie about his work. He wants to be a man who is good at everything but you only have limited time.

Regina is still munching chocolates and says to herself “oh why did I start eating these for?”. Eventually she gets underway with a handful of M&Ms. She starts but every 10 seconds takes a handful of M&Ms from her bowl. She tells Daniel she can’t stop. He gives her a test: to stop eating them right now and leave the ones in the bowl. She seems to pass the test and moves the bowl away from her.

The final three are collected in the living room now, while Daniel works on his second poem. Regina says “bugger it I can’t help myself” and grabs some more M&Ms. “I’ve nearly finished the bowl off so I might as well keep going”.

4:27pm – Regina is revising her poem. Daniel is dressed up and rehearsed. Chrissie is practicing outside with Regina. When Daniel comes outside the girls are impressed at Daniel’s snappy suit. Chrissie says he is georgous “how cute is he, I feel all proud”.

5:27pm – Regina is called to the podium for the task. She hopes she says it right, and doesn’t know how to stand. Up on the podium she draws a blank, so Chrissie whispers the first few words as a cue.

After the first few lines Regina laughs and says she has to start again because she’s forgotten. The other two tell her to relax. Regina starts giggling again. On the second try and forgets her lines. Third time lucky Regina gets through the poem with some support from Daniel. She says “thats terrible! I couldn’t think!” but starts giggling again.

Chrissie’s poem goes off without a hitch, and she bows for the crowd. Daniel moves onto the podium with his new poem:

I want to be a renaissance man
A guy who’s good at everything
I’d like to learn a hundred languages
And be a poet, an artist, and to sing

I want to make the best stuff ever
But like Macgyver, I’ll just have to make do
Because time is short
And I’ll just have to let go
Content, just to be here with you

The girls clap and Daniel raises his eyebrows for a laugh. Regina is still annoyed she forgot her poem. “Thats pathetic Regina”. The others tell her no, as long as she put her heart into it.

9:39pm – Dan is in the diary room. The girls are in the living room talking about winners. Regina says it will be Chrissie and Dan on the couch holding hands. Chrissie says it will be Regina, but Reg refuses to believe that. Chrissie can’t see Regina not being in the last show.

Regina notes that now there are so few people in the house it’s easy to see just how close Chrissie and Dan are. With no other distractions you can really see it. Chrissie says that the more people left, the more she found she didn’t know about Patrick – she already had her boy-buddy Dan to learn about.

Dan soon joins them and Chrissie shares her thoughts on playing the game: if some one was to come in with a plan to win and come this far they would have to be a real psychopath. They agree it’s not a game when you’re living in the house, despite what it might look like on television to the outside world. Chrissie adds it’s so easy to forget where you are and she is still surprised when Big Brother announces things – its like there is a voice booming into her own kitchen.
