Day 25

7:12am: Rebeccca and Jamie are lying in the bed in the backyard counting the sheep. Travis and Demet are also sleeping outside, and Jamie decides it’s time for everyone to get up, so he wakes up Travis, who goes and tells everyone in the bedroom. Zoran is struggling, as is Joel. The clock stops. Nick says he is getting to the stage where he would happily chuck in the $50,000 for some sleep. Suddenly all noises come on, and Zoran and Thomas race out to the backyard and press a button within 20 seconds. Thomas says “You suck Big Brother” and lies down outside the buzzer. Big Brother immediately tells the farmhard to feed the animals. Andrew and Nick go to do that. Andrew wonders if it’s the same cow. Rebecca says that she is having a few issues with Zoran. Jamie says that Nick is trying to asert his authority over him and he’s trying to put Jamie down. Jamie says he doesn’t appreciate it all. “He’s picked the wrong target with me.” Andrew is trying to collect the eggs, but is having a hard time because the chickens won’t move. He gives up on the last couple. Back inside, Joel has got a Yellow boxing outfit on. He says he feels better already now he’s in it. “See Big Brother, just when you think you have me, something else comes up.”

10:59am: Joel is asleep on the couch. Hayley quickly tells him. The clock stops. Emma tells Joel to come and help in the kitchen to keep him awake. He stares at Emma and makes her laugh. On the couch, Travis wonders how Nick is treating him. Jamie says he’s been very quiet towards him. Billy comes in and asks for some cheese or something, and Jamie says that he trusts Billy’s judgement so he goes away again. Jamie continues about Nick, saying that Nick was just saying insulting jokes to Jamie, even after he’s told him numerous times. Outside watching the sheep, Nick and Sussanah are counting sheep talking about the heat. Jamie says he has a temper, but it takes a hell of a lot to snap him. He says he is here for fun and not here for mindgames.

11:31am: Emma and Aleisha are almost snoozing on the bed in the backyard. A few sheep appear, Emma says “Yeh yeh” and Aleisha immediately wakes up and goes “What?!” Emma says that they saw 2.

12:41am: Joel and Billy are on the bed watching sheep. Big Brother calls Thomas to the diary room. Billy thinks the task is over, Joel is not convinced. They all head outside and Big Brother announces that the sheep counting task is now over. Thomas has an envelope. All housemates tell Big Brother that they counted 22 sheep. Thomas opens the letter, revealing that the correct number was 22! Big Brother asks them whether they would like a one hour ‘nana nap’ or a pot of freshly brewed coffee. They decide on the nana nap and all run inside very excited.

6:11pm: Everyone is sitting down eating dinner. Sussanah says that this is the best meal she has ever had. It’s time for their weekly meeting. Billy says that he’s noticed that it’s the same people offering to help with jobs that need to be done around the house. He says everyone needs to chip in and help. The camera pans to Sussanah a heap! Emma says they shouldn’t mention names, but says that everyone needs to help. Nick says that he has at times he struggles to fit into the group, but it’s turning around, so he appreciates it. Zoran says that he has sorted out his issues with Nick now, and he says that he really appreciates that they chatted. Thomas says that it’s easy for the loud ones like himself to talk over others. Jamie says that he’s probably looked like an ass as the chef because he hasn’t given people cheese etc because he has had plans with it for later in the week. Andrew agrees that they shouldn’t just be taking things. Thomas finally mentions that Emma gets up every single morning and makes the porridge, and lunches. He says thankyou, and Emma says she likes cooking.

7:05pm: Quite a few people out lounging by the pool. Inside Demete and Emma are in the kitchen. Demet says she can’t get over how dirty Zoran is. She says he reminds her of a typical guy who does nothing at home. Out by the pool, Aleisha says that Zoran burped in her direction, and it stank! Back in the kitchen, both girls talk about how Sussanah doesn’t lift a finger in the house. They laugh that back at the table she was nodding as if she was one of the ones that did do work. Emma starts rattling off names that think Sussanah does nothing, not realising that she has walked to the sink to wash a bottle?! She leaves saying “think i’ll relax now!”.

8:36pm: Jamie takes off his microphone for a practical joke, and walks out to the people at the pool but slips and falls into the pool as a practical joke. They all laugh when they realise he did it in purpose. Thomas helps him out, but then pushes him back in. Jamie says that it’s actually really warm in there. Andrew is trying to get Billy and Aleisha together and ‘live the dream.’ Later, Billy tries to get Aleisha to kiss him on the cheek, but she says ‘the tricks old. I know what you’re trying to do.’ Billy then kisses her! Aleisha is a bit stunned, and Rebecca says that she saw it, saying that Billy obviously needed to do it. Meanwhile Jamie is hoping that people aren’t pissed at him for falling in the pool. Jamie says that Thomas was ready to take his shirt off “surprise surprise!” Jamie says that his friends would watch that and say that that is actually Jamie, the real guy.

12:04am: It’s almost bedtime. They decide it’s time to get a few hours of sleep. An alarm sounds and Joel and Billy get up and hit the snooze button out in the yard.

Day 22

Day 22, 8:05pm. Gretel appears to the house and reveals that TJ has been evicted. After hugs and kisses to everyone, she strikes a pose and departs through the front door. The HMs all go outside to listen to the live audience’s reaction. Bodie is certain that there’s going to be another eviction.

In the bedroom, Emma asks Aleisha if she’s happy to be here for another week. “Hell yeah. We’re all still together.” Emma happy proclaims, “They can’t break us!”. Emma isn’t surprised that Hayley exercised the nominations power on her; she says it was going to be someone she got along with – either her or TJ.

8:30pm. BB orders HMs to return to the lounge. Travis suggests that it’s TJ’s message from the grave, but is quickly proven wrong. Gretel announces that it’s time to go… “Bodie!”. Several HMs take this hard. Emma is in tears. They applaud him right out the door. Hayley hugs Emma, saying it’ll be okay. Several other HMs try to comfort her as she escapes to the bedroom.


8:33pm. Outside, they listen for the crowd reaction to Bodie. Travis tells Andrew and Thomas that “that group’s going to struggle without their ring leader.” Aleisha tells Emma that they have to stick together now. They’re both in disbelief. Aleisha says the whole TJ thing “had him buggered.” Emma says she’s angry. She thinks all the other HMs (outside of their group) don’t actually care. “So fake…” Emma and Aleisha run off back indoors to hang up Bodie’s drink tag with the other evicted HMs.

Meanwhile, Hayley tells Nick she was “so depressed when TJ went”. But now she’s “rapt, I’m so happy.” Nick sort of agrees, saying he’s hurt for [Bodie], but happy for the house. Hayley says Nick’s going to meet “14 new people”. They’ll all be relaxed, they can be themselves. She then says they should go join the group so it doesn’t look like they’ve been bitching. “I just want to smile”.

A teary Emma tells Aleisha and Billy that she just doesn’t have many friends in here. She can’t believe she wasn’t taken out and he was. Billy says she’s stayed for a reason. They lover her, that’s all that matters.

8:57pm. It’s raining. Zoran, Billy, Thomas, Rebecca, Demet, Emma, and Aleisha are under cover. Zoran says he’s tempted to “do a Bodie” and go and lie in the rain. They all agree to go do it. They take off their mics and go lie down on the astro turf, laughing and stretching. Zoran stays down the longest.


10:42pm. TJ’s eviction message is playing. She loves them all and hopes they all have a “phat” time, and that they all come visit her. Everyone cheers for her, and then even louder when Bodie appears on the screen. He focuses on the four people that are “most important” to him. Billy & Joel, thanks for theit mateship and friendship. Aleisha – “you are a massive cute-head.” Demet aswell, she’s an amazing girl. He tells Andrew and Hayley (who laugh and wave) to “keep playing the game, I suppose”. He wishes he had four hands so he could give them “four thumbs down right now”. (Almost) everyone laughs and cheers at that. Emma has definitely been his rock in this place, she made it easier to be here. He thanks everyone. Hopefully he’ll see some of them soon. Hayley: “Not me, buddy.”

Andrew points out that he and Hayley aren’t fake and he thinks most people here know that they’re not, and despite what Demet has expressed, despite not knowing what was really expressed in that room… Demet interrupts, happy to have this discussion. Travis says he spent two days in the RR with Andrew and thinks he’s a good bloke. Demet tells him they’re genuine to your face but not behind your back. Hayley and Andrew take exception to that and challenge Demet to justify what she said. Zoran says he’s been hearing things and felt kind of “stabbed” when Andrew not only didn’t take him into the RR but today gave him the janitor role. As they talk, many of the other HMs get up and leave. Andrew says the RR decision was made ages ago and that janitor is probably the easiest chore.

Zoran says there’s a pattern here – he’s upset, Bodie was upset, Demet’s upset, obviously there’s a bit of a pattern going on. Andrew says a lot of what they’re going on about is hearsay. He did not say anything bad about him in the RR. Zoran challenges Andrew to look at Demet and say that she’s been lying. Demet shakes her head. Outside, Hayley can’t believe what’s going on in there. Travis says he doesn’t like this sort of stuff. Aleisha giggles.

Back in the lounge, Andrew says they don’t have a game plan, but they are here to play the game. And that’s the only way he can explain it. He says Hayley keeps getting upset about it, and he has to tell her that “it’s just a game, just a game.” Everyone in this house has to play the game. Hayley is back in the room now. Andrew says Demet has been gutless, just sitting back and listening to what she wants to hear, not bothering to clarify with him. Demet brings up Nick and how Hayley and Andrew have tried to recruit him. She just warned him when he came in that she thinks they’re really playing the game. Andrew reiterates his point about her not confronting him – “you are possibly the most fake person in here!”

Nick has escaped outside and fills in Aleisha, Thomas, and Travis about what’s going on. Thomas says this place bring out the best and the worst [in you].

Hayley tells Demet to say who else is being fake. Demet doesn’t want to share that with her, she’s told them straight to their face. Andrew doesn’t believe her. “You’re an absolute joke, you’re an absolute joke. You will sit there, and you’ll listen to whatever’s heard, to make little judgements, to calculate…” Hayley says she’s upset people like Emma for no reason. Why would she have chosen to save someone she hated?

Andrew leaves the room shaking his head. Demet says she has nothing to say to them now.


12:14am. In the bedroom, Demet calls herself the “new Bodie”. In the lounge, Zoran and Andrew apologise to each other and shake hands.

Jamie and Nick enter the spa. Nick says that from the moment he came through the door, the sh*t has just hit the fan. Jamie agrees but says it’s not about Nick, it’s just the timing. After the first few weeks, “the honeymoon’s over, and now we’re into marriage. And it’s not nice.”

In the kitchen, Emma tells Billy and Demet that there’s non doubt in her mind that Hayley & Andrew are playing the game. Some people are here to win the game, that’s all they have on their mind. In the spa, Nick agrees that he completely misread Demet. Jamie doesn’t know what to make of the whole mess. Nick says Demet has completely set Zoran up to be pissed off about Hayley & Andrew.

In the kitchen, Emma apologises to Zoran for him being roped into all this. She says everything’s gotten nasty in here because they have nothing better to do than talk about each other. Outside, Jamie questions the whole thing about Hayley and Andrew filling Nick with “crap” and getting him on their side. Nick has no idea where that came from, the only HM they talked about in the RR was Bodie. Nick says he will make up his own mind about people. In the kitchen Emma says they should appreciate Demet being so honest to all of them.

Nick confirms with Jamie that Demet is Muslin. He hesitantly wonders about whether or not young Muslin girls are allowed to show as much skin as Demet does, and bellydance etc. Jamie explains that by saying there are many different types of Muslims, and she’s of a more liberal following. But he doesn’t understand completely.

In their bed, Andrew tells Hayley that Demet’s a nobody in this place, don’t worry about her. They can’t believe how fake she’s been to them, and is glad Zoran understands them now. They kiss and decide to go to sleep as the show ends.

Day 19

9.33am – Jamie is swimming around in the pool, not very well. Brodie says he’s going to put the porridge on because “I never do anything around here”. Demet suggests he puts a packet of lollies through the porridge as a joke. Bodie runs with it and says its the best idea she’s had since she’s been in the house. Lights are coming on in the bedroom. Bodie suggests they put sultanas and almonds in with the lollies. They put the lollies in while the porridge is cooking on the stove… oh and some juice. Bodie says “people don’t realise how much improvisation is in cooking… after this they’re going to make me shopper chef”. Travis emerges from the bedroom and says breakfast looks good. Demet takes the first taste… its like bubblegum and they can taste the juice as well. Bodie and Demet jump around in excitement.

Bodie gets Emma to come out of the bedroom and taste the porridge. She says its good – “best in the world”. Bodie reveals theres lollies in it, and Emma says “oh thats good”. Bodie calls it hyper-porridge and dances around some more. Thomas is the next to try it.

Emma goes into the bedroom and tells the housemates still in bed whats in this morning’s porridge. Susannah asks why Bodie wasted on that food. Hayley says its child-like behaviour, and TJ adds if you looked in the dictionary under irrational it would have Bodie. Hayley is angry – saying he always mucks up and every time she builds a bridge and gets over him, he does something else wrong and she goes “URGH!”. The girls all share their anger and Emma suggests they have a meeting or group chat about sharing food. Hayley says theres a time for fun and a time for … not wasting food.


12.13pm – Everyone has been called to the living room for the meeting. Thomas guesses the meeting is because of the porridge this morning. Andrew starts, directing at Bodie that with every day people are getting more and more pissed off with the things he does. Bodie says its not like he made the porridge for himself, he thought it was a good idea for the group. Bodie then calls for a group vote on who liked the porridge, counting the number of hands that go up. Emma says its not the point – they need to talk about rationing food and treats among the group. Bodie says this discussion was directed at him, claiming Andrew is just using it to vent at his problems with Bodie. Andrew responds saying he can live side by side with Bodie and not get pissed off but there are people in the house that see things in the house that Bodie does as irresponsible and not decisions that would be made by…. inconsiderate of other people. Hayley interrupts – there have been constant breaches of the rules in the house by Bodie, like not making people feel bad. She knows she’s being called the fun police but she is bringing it up so everyone in the house can have fun and not just one seperate group.

Bodie is hurt there are not more people speaking out on this… he thought there were more people who thought the same as him and the fact they’re not ball-sey enough to say it how it is.

Bodie: This is how it is – if there are people in this house you don’t get along with you shouldn’t have to.

TJ: Don’t get defensive we’re just airing stuff. Yes its uncomfortable.. but we have to be mature and nip it in the butt otherwise things will fester in each and everyone one of us.

Bodie: I accept and understand… but I’m not going to change. Sorry.

Bodie then gets people who have had fines to raise their hands with the number of fines indicated. Bodie makes the point that almost everyone has had fines but everyone needs to take it on board. Hayley says they’re not talking about geniune mistakes but the blatant disregard of the rules Bodie has been showing, and when people find it amusing. Bodie then questions when he’s found a fine amusing.. Hayley says there are many times.

Bodie: Two! I’ve got two [fines] .. are you blind?

Hayley: There’s no need to be rude Bodie, I’m trying to be constructive. Does anybody not feel, as though Bodie perhaps has given a little bit more of a disregard for the rules…

Bodie asks then why doesn’t he have more fines? Yelling breaks out and Hayley says “you do it every fucking day!”. Zoran yells and stops and clarifies that everyone is trying to says it doesn’t matter how many fines people have … at the end of the day when this meeting ends we’re still going to hold a grudge. Thomas asks if anyone else has anything to say.

Rebecca: Can I just say that I’m not a very confronational person and I do not find it easy to discuss my feelings with people, especially if they have hurt me. (she starts crying) and I understand if people don’t get along with me thats fine, but as a person I’m really a non-exclusive person and I value everybody and I want to get to know everybody.

Everyone claps. Demet laughs. Hayley continues that Rebecca was petrified to come out with that because she was scared she would be shut down and excluded from the group because she’s different on so many levels. “Do you understand how brave it is to say that when no one understands her? I don’t even understand her! but she put herself out there and put herself in here so we could learn”. Hayley gets teary and tells everyone to make her feel secure in her own home.

Bodie: I never intentionally go out of my way to hurt some one’s feelings and if there are people who I am upsetting I’m sorry. Thats just me.

Aleisha says if everyone makes an effort, it should be rosey. Emma is silent.


12.56pm – Andrew walks up to Bodie and apologises for the conversation before but says he said it straight out how it was. Meanwhile Emma is in the lounge room saying sorry to Rebecca if she upset her. She thinks they have meshed the least but its not her intention to upset people – if they don’t get along they just purely not get along. She doesn’t think they have been nasty in any way. “It’s not in me to be cruel”. If she has upset Rebecca its not her intention.

Andrew is now defending Hayley saying people look at her as a mother figure. Bodie says maybe the problem is he hasn’t seen her as a mother figure.

Since the meeting started Bodie has not taken off his sunglasses, and there is a waver in his voice as if he’s trying to hold back tears.

Rebecca hopes from now on people will make an effort with everything. She feels better… “we can smile again”.

2.18pm – Apparently Demet has a psychic sixth sense… so she says. She asks Emma and Aleisha to give her names of people and she will give them a psychic reading about them. Emma imemdiately says “Rebecca” and Demet says “likes you”.

Bodie.. “likes you”

Zoran… “mmmrm… doesn’t know”

Thomas… “fake”. (They’re being fake with her). Emma says “Yeah I reckon that too”

Hayley… “fake”

Andrew joins them on the bed and the discussion turns to hair products and how they have to wait until shopping time. The girl talk turns Andrew away and they immediately ask Demet for her take on Andrew. Demet says “they’re [him and Hayley] are in it together”. They agree they’ve got a strategy and they are really competitive, especially when there is money involved. They are “definately here to play”. They ask Billy what he thinks – he finds it hard because he already knew Hayley before entering the house, then goes to answer but Hayley enters the bedroom. Billy is lying on the bed and can’t see Hayley enter so Emma loudly interrupts Billy with a “Hellooo!” to Hayley to get him to stop talking. Billy says he didn’t think he would last in the house, but as soon as Hayley leaves the room he says the couple are definately playing the game.


9.52pm – Nick tells the housemates he has a few extra priviledges as the golden key winner. He can pick three other housemates into the rewards room for a celebratory party of his entrance. He choses Hayley, Andrew and Demet. He says those three have made him feel extremely comfortable and welcome since he arrived. They go into the rewards room with is full of balloons and food. Demet says its amazing and hugs Nick. The revealing window is opened and the other housemates crowd to watch. All of the food is kids party food like rainbow bread. Zoel and Bodie can’t watch and leave the bedroom. Thomas says its ok because he’ll be in there on the weekend. The party housemates toast with champagne.

Bodie and Emma run into the diary room to talk to Big Brother. TJ and Joel follow them behind. Emma sits down in the diary room chair with Bodie, turns to see TJ has come in and says “oh god”. They ask BB if they can have party pies. Bodie says he’s not happy for some of the people in the rewards room but Demet they are. TJ feels Andrew and Hayley aren’t the best choice because they’ve already been in that house, plus “Bodie hates Hayley”.

Bodie: She feels like a very domineering character, and I think her and Andrew at times are a little bit like this (he puts his thumb up to his forehead).

In the rewards room Hayley thanks Nick for inviting them in. He says there are a couple of people he really would have like to bring in, but he gestures to suggest he wasn’t able to because of the current politics of the house. The revealing window is then frosted. Nick says he’s a good judge of character and picked the right three to join him.

1.14am – Bodie is putting shaving cream on Billy’s hand while he sleeps. He then gets a piece of string and tickles Billy’s face. Aleisha, Thomas and Joel are watching on. Billy naturally goes to scratch his face, smearing shaving cream all over his eye. It wakes him up but he’s still half asleep and doesn’t do anything about it, but smiles. It’s obvious who was responsible – they’re all giggling louldy under their bed covers.

Day 18

10.08am – Demet can’t bring herself to each porridge for breakcast. The other girls suggest putting fruit or blueberry into it to change the flavour. Emma made breakfast and watches unimpressed as Demet complains about the porridge and then eventually eats something else.

The boys are working out in the gym. In the bedroom Emma is bitching about Rebecca to Aleisha and Bodie. She says Rebecca isn’t representative of a proper mormon and just sucks up and is overly nice to everyone in the house. Emma doesn’t think she would be like that on out outside but in this house is over the top and sits on all the boys laps. It drives Emma crazy. Meanwhile in the chill out room Rebecca is chatting with Demet and Jamie about how she doesn’t flirt with anyone. Demet disagrees, saying Rebecca does know how to flirt just doesn’t realise she’s doing that. Demet explains that even touching a guy on the arm can be flirting, much to the amazement of Rebecca.

Emma explains Rebecca hates nuts, so this morning she made porridge with extra nuts. “I can’t stand her, I hate when she talks to me”. Rebecca says Emma’s got a hot body but is really bitchy: when nominations happened Emma thought everyone is so fake, saying “people were coming up to me hugging me and I was thinking get off me you fucking bitch you were probebly the one who nominated me”. Rebecca thought “who says that! That is probably the bitchiest thing anyone can say”.

It’s revealed in the kitchen Andrew had said how great it would be if the house was full of guys, and each time a girl came in they could all “upgrade” to a better girl in the house. Hayley is not impressed at all, calls him an idiot and goes to walk away, but Andrew pulls him back. Hayley lets rip about what he said. Andrew explains he meant to say “more compatible” women in the house. Hayley won’t have a bar of that and says “so I’m not compatible?”. She then annouces to the house “if I was never known to you, you wouldn’t be here, because I make you the man you are”. Thomas hugs Hayley infront of Andrew, and then jokes she has upgraded her man.


Rebecca has come to the diary room, teary eyed. She says she is so used to her friends being wonderful and never had a geniune conflict before. It’s foreign to her – according to people she knows she’s easy to get along and is not judgemental and people say that of all people she would be the least deserving of this sort of treatment. Am I really that weird? she asks. She doesn’t know if she’s that different that it causes problems. She doesn’t want to make people feel uncomfortable but is confused – she was confident in who she was but now feels like such a sook.

Emma is bitching about Rebecca again. She says its bizarre that Rebecca hit it off with everyone in the house – according to Emma you’re only supposed to hit it off with one or two people. Emma doesn’t feel she’s meshed with Rebecca and she doesn’t need to mesh with her now. Billy in all his empty-headedness just nods along and says yes. Emma then immitates Rebecca whining and says “just get a life, build a bridge… I don’t care”.

Emma: Seriously, if I see Rebecca going into the diary room on nominations crying again, I’m going to throw a bucket of water over her. When you signed the dotted line did you not know you are going to nominate people?

Big Brother calls it’s pantimime time.

8.31pm – The housemates are performing their pantimime. At the end of the performance Big Brother steers from the script, confusing Joel who goes back to try and find it in the script. Big Brother then introduces new housemate Nick as Goldilocks. He is dressed in a Goldilocks costume. Everyone welcomes him.


8.36pm – Nick is getting the house tour by Hayley. Nick asks which bed is his – its next to Bodie. The boys offer Nick some clothes as his suitcase hasn’t been delivered yet. All the other housemates get dressed out of their costumes.

Travis: Are you a gay bloke Nick?

Nick: aaaaahh…. yep.

Hayley laughs.

Travis: aah hey oh.. ah I was just asking and you gave me an answer and good on ya mate.

Travis extends his hand to shake but Nick is a little confronted by the situation. Word instantly spreads around the bedroom and Emma says “is he gay? I knew it! I knew it!”. Everyone assures Nick that its just Travis’ way and he will get to know him. Nick reveals he is “very much single”. Emma shows him the toilets and showers. Aleisha explains 2 minute showers.

Travis has already figued out that this week will be a double eviction, since they are already back up to 16 housemates. Emma cheers there is a gay boy in the house – she wanted a gay boy in the house. Zoran is getting stressed about the possibility of a double eviction. Hayley and Andrew tell him not to stress out.

Big Brother says HMs are free to leave the bedroom, and everyone does except for Bodie and TJ. Bodie tells her she’s “really gotten to me in these last few days”. They start bickering about cuddling in bed again. He says it was a mistake to start cuddling with her in the first place. Things get heated and the yelling begins. TJ says of course but she didn’t expect to be ignored the day after their last fight. Bodie doesn’t think he ignored her but she replies “YOU DID, BODIE, YOU DID”.

Bodie: You scare the hell out of me sometimes.

TJ: And you’re perfect are you?

Bodie: You’re making me feel like just grabbing my shit and leaving here

TJ: And you’re making me feel exactly the same way. We…

Bodie interupts with the excuse he has to leave to find his pig ears from the pantimime task, and Big Brother could call for them to perform at any time. He says the pig ears can’t wait. TJ says “exactly my point… no respect. At the end of the day I like you”.

Bodie: What do you want from me?

TJ: (laughs) Its really not a hard question, I want to get to know you.

Outside Rebecca and Jamie have pulled Nick away from the main group of housemates who are sitting around the pool. Nick jokes they should give the others a chance to talk about him and Rebecca continues the joke saying “yeah give them a chance to bitch about you behind your back”. Nick replies “oh cos it wasn’t like you guys weren’t just walking along here talking about me”. Rebecca and Jamie halt and say “well no actually we weren’t”. Jamie was telling Rebecca how he thinks she’s his favourite mormon. Nick explains shes the second mormon he’s met he hasn’t slammed the door on. Rebecca says “well apparently I’m everyones favourite mormon.. we’re not all that bad!”. Nick asks whats up with TJ… she hasn’t spoken to him and is hiding in the bedroom. Rebecca explains there are layers but once you get past it she’s a nice person.

Back in the bedroom TJ says she didn’t want to be full on or serious about their relationship. They both agree to leave and get more drink.

TJ: On a second note do you really want him (Nick) sleeping next to you?

Bodie: Yeah, I do

TJ: Really? what about when you realise how ridiculously hot I am?

Bodie: Hrrmm I think all this (he gestures to mean the fight they just had) goes against that.

TJ: Really?

Bodie: Do we have to go back and talk about what we just said again? All this stuff we just had sorta makes it…hmph.

TJ: And the way you’ve been has certainly made me feel like… hrmph.

Bodie walks away and joins the other housemates. TJ strolls outside where some of the HMs are questioning Nick with personal stats. Nick notes TJ has finally emerged but she doesn’t come over to talk. Rebecca explains even though everyone says they are going to be a group its quite split and they all have to move past that. Nick says “build a bridge”. Rebecca says her bridge is a “giant one” and its fallen down but its alright. She starts to spin out a bit with her conversation, going a mile a minute with sentences merging into each other.

Rebecca: No but I’m not a very confrontational person

Nick: Oh thats a shame because I’m mighty confrontational. Screw others.. [I stick up for] myself.

Jamie and Rebecca both laugh overly-friendly saying “oh thats honest, thats tops”. Nick turns away and takes a swig of his drink looking extremely uncomfortable.


11.28pm – The boys are playing bongo drums on some bins while Demet belly dances by the pool. She’s a proffesional belly dancer. She dances over the boys one by one.

In the bathroom Nick asks who the hairdresser is in the house. Of course he already knows its Aleisha. The others ask “how did you know there was a hairdresser in here?”. And stumbling for an answer Nick says “oh I just assumed”. Nick isn’t allowed to let the others know he has been watching the show. They tell him theres a stripper as well and he asks who. Right infront of her Nick says the only person he would guess is Emma, who says “no I’m not a stripper”. TJ starts laughing saying “Emma you stripper you”. Nick says “oh she could be.. she has the body for it”.

Emma: No I’m not a stripper.. no thankyou

Nick: Thats ok I’ll call you a stripper any time you like

Outside Hayley says she loves Nick and will attach herself to him. She loves nice boys. Rebecca says “well if he likes us then hopefully everyone else likes us”. Hayley suggests he might be warm to them “for a reason”. Aleisha finds Emma who explains what happened just before with the ‘stripper’ comment. Aleisha notes Nick is pretty upfront. Emma has also noted he’s been hanging out with Jamie and Rebecca.

Emma: Is it just me, am I living in a completely warped world but is Jamie … and Rebecca… odd. Like… am I a bitch? Cos I honestly think that they are weird. I think they’re weirdos.

Billy and Aleisha don’t have an answer. Billy suggest eccentric. Emma says but Jamie is quiest, and Rebecca is just annoying.

12.50am – Rebecca goes to the chill out room on her own, upset.

Nick is getting into bed.

Joel has spied Rebecca in the chillout room. She says she just needs some time on her own, and doesn’t like to pray infront of everyone.

Over Nick, Bodie says goodnight to TJ. The lights go out but TJ stays sitting up in bed looking unimpressed. Nick puts on a blindfold to go to sleep between the bickering couple.

Day 17

9.22am – Housemates are practicing for their fairytale pantimime. They get up to the part with the three pigs, who are played by Thomas, Zoran and Billy. The big bad wolf – Travis attempts to blow down the pig’s house. When the practice finishes BB annouces the hot water is now on. Emma is showering and must use a timer – they can only shower for 4 minutes per person per day. Outside Bodie asks Joel if there is anything exciting to do today. TJ is washing Bodie’s clothes and he says “get my whites white woman”. TJ jokes she doesn’t want to put Bodie’s mum out of a job. Bodie says his mum does all his cooking and cleaning and sometimes even cleans his room. TJ says “aren’t you an independent mature man?”.

Bodie: I’m not a mummies boy because I’ve lived out of home since I was 17 and only just returned last year.

TJ: Really? I’ve lived out of home since I was 16 and I’ve never looked back.

Bodie: Well… …. thats because you’re a bogan.

TJ: No it’s because I’m Territory Tough.

Bodie says he is very family orientated and important. TJ is the same but just not as close to her family as Bodie. Susannah is taking coffee orders from all the housemates. Bodie is amazed some one is making him coffee and says “this place is amazing”. Inside Jamie asks Susannah why she asked everyone in the house if they wanted a coffee… except him. Susannah says she shouldn’t find him. Jamie doesn’t want a coffee but would have liked her to ask him. She apologises. Jamie watches Demet “feed” Joel while hugging him… Jamie sits alone on his kitchen stool.


12.02pm – Rebecca and Jamie are in the chill out room together. Rebecca says she’s totally stuggling with Emma. Jamie has completely given – “can’t people just pretend to like people?”. Meanwhile in the bedroom Emma is saying just because people reveal deep down stories they expect to be friends… “its like blah blah blah”. Rebecca can’t understand what she can do to resolve her problems with Emma and the other so their hearts can be a little more open and they can be accepting and communicate. Emma on the other hand is explaining she will never change for everyone and thinks people are just jumping around to network and make bonds. Maybe it works for them but Emma smells fake. Jamie explains to Rebecca he has had a similar upbringing to Emma so they should get along but maybe its the reason she isn’t attempting to be friends with them.

Travis comes into the chill out room so he can clean the windows, and tells them to continue what they were talking about. Obviously they don’t.

1.18pm – Bodie and Zoran are joking around in the pool – slow motion action fighting. In the kitchen Thomas is having a go at Rebecca because of her religion so it seems. Rebecca tells him that people think every mormon is like her – but everyone is individual. Rebecca asks how she is different to Thomas’ friends – he says she is more bubbly and energetic and more weird (jokingly).

Zoran asks Billy whats going on between him and Aleisha. He says nothing and Zoran replies “what a load of crap”. Billy explains its nothing serious just some cuddling. Zoran jokes he’s not a serious guy – “do you want to cuddle me?”. Billy says he would love to. Aleisha is inside proding Bodie for an update with whats going on with him and TJ. Bodie asks if its a bad thing that if they weren’t in the house he probably wouldn’t be with her. Aleisha says no because she wouldn’t be with Billy otherwise. TJ is the opposite to what Bodie would go for outside of the house… and he’s confused. Aleisha has the same attitude as Billy with their relationship: its just a cuddle at night.

Bodie says they’ve got the “perfect little thing”.


3.56pm – The boys are going into the sauna – Travis’ first time. They talk about farting in the sauna. Bodie puts some water on the coals and Travis says “oh you’re kidding” to the heat. He asks if sucking in the hot water is good for him – apparently it is. Travis feels like he’s in an iron. Thomas says to duck forward if he’s feeling hot because the cooler air is at the bottom of the sauna. Travis doesn’t really like it he’s never been in a sauna before. Thomas notes the temperature is 75 degrees. Travis suggests they put the bed him here during the day. Obviously the boys know nothing about cooking bread because they think its a good idea.

Emma and Aleisha come to the diary room. Aleisha says its only 13 days until her birthday. They think TJ and Bodie have made up.

Travis says the sauna is “bloody torchure mate” and has to leave.

The girls in the diary room are angry Zoran ate some of Aleisha’s bread, even though he did ask. It’s hard to turn him down. They have named him the seagull because he’s always talking food: “he either doesn’t get it or doesn’t care about the rules or is just very hungry”. He eats everyone’s food – they laugh.

5.52pm – Despite Aleisha telling the other housemates not to touch her expensive hairdressing scissors, Zoran is using them in the bedroom while no one else is around. Emma walks in and he quickly hides the scissors again. Once they leave again he says “problem solved” while he does his hair up. Emma has already seen whats happening though and reports back to Aleisha who gasps really loudly “are you kidding!?”. She runs into the bedroom to tell him off. Emma says “oh ow I just got him in trouble”.

Aleisha asks Zoran if he was using her scissors… he says nervously yes it was just for one snip. She educates him that they are really expensive and if you drop them they are wrecked – he’s gotta ask her. She goes back into the kitchen and updates Emma on what he said. Andrew says its a bit harsh but Aleisha can’t afford to buy a new pair if they’re broken.. she says to Andrew it would be like if some one “grabbed your hose” (he’s a firefighter) and laughs at the double meaning. Aleisha is so angry she wasn’t asked.

Zoran comes out to the living room and apologises again for the scissors. Aleisha says “just ask”. TJ says “ah mah! You don’t ever touch a hairdresser’s scissors without asking, thats death”. Thomas hopes Zoran sleeps with one eye open tonight… he’ll wake up with no hair.


8.52pm – Emma is freaking out about her pimples on her chest. Aleisha says its not that bad. Emma shows her boobs under the covers about how they naturally point out. Aleisha says “oh my god they look cool – they’re so big, so heavily… they look good”.They then move on to talking about Hayley and Andrew and they are so competitive they jsut want to win. Aleisha would be like “oh my god” if she won this. Emma says she couldn’t care less if Hayley won. The two don’t realise Hayley is fast approaching them and and goes to lie down with them. The conversation ceases immediately without Hayley hearing anything. They tell Hayley to join them on the bed and talk about Emma’s fake boobs.

10.47pm – The housemates are playing a new game invented by Demet – one person is blindfolded and must feel a certain parts of three different housemates and then guess who the housemates are in order. Andrew is blindfolded first and must touch Zoran’s butt. Zoran seems to really enjoy it and has to keep himself from laughing. No one else is amused. He then touch’s Hayley’s hair. He then touches Aleish’a hand and arm. Andrew says “you have really nice hands Joel”, almost causing Aleisha to laugh out loud. The blindfold is removed and Andrew guesses Aleisha for the hand, Rebecca for the hair and Hayley’s bum. Everyone laughs. Thomas says can the bum stand up – and Zoran stands up with his pants down. Andrew gets Hayley to stand up too to compare bums – he says they are quite similar. Hayley gives Andrew the finger.

Joel and Aleisha decide to steal some biscuits from the kitchen. Billly follows and when he opens the bedroom door Aleisha and Joel run off laughing, but releived when they find out its Billy. Rebecca is in the bathroom resting her hand on the padded bench. The three biscuit theives take their loot into the chill out room. Rebecca goes to bed before Aleisha, Joel and Billy go back to bed.

Day 16

Housemates are still talking about Bodie and TJ. Over breakfast Aleisha and Emma discuss how TJ wanted to be one on one all the time with Bodie.

11.32am – Susannah asks Bodie if TJ has woken yet. He doesn’t care.

Outside Jamie tells Joel he is still bummed about Kate being evicted last night, although he is now feeling good he’s still in the house. In the house Jamie explains you have to talk over other people but where he comes from thats pretty rude. He waits for a break to talk but it never comes. Joel is different and explains he just talks, but has his ups and downs.

BB calls all housemates to the bedroom. The new weekly task is set up in the backyard – it’s Fairy Tale Island. Aleisha says she will be the troll under the bridge. Bodie runs back into the house and grabs a half asleep TJ to come outside. Bodie runs ahead and TJ says behind his back “this is it, moron!”. Joel reads out the task details – BB wants them to return to the happy care-free days of their childhood. They have to perform a fairytale pantimime when BB calls, and each housemate has their own section triggered by music. They must deliver their lines with oomph. They must all pick which characters to play.

Emma is the evil queen
Demet is Little red riding hood
Rebecca is Repunzel
(other housemates are not shown)

Joel is called to the diary room. BB says a captivating performance requires a good storyteller. He has been chosen as the narrator. Joel says its going to be a performance with charisma and character.


1.49pm – The housemates are practicing their pantimime. They all laugh as Joel narrates the story, and cheer when they finish. Later in the living room TJ apologises to Emma about the trouble she’s been causing between Emma and TJ. TJ explains she was told Bodie had the hots for Emma, which is why she got annoyed at her, and TJ felt like the second option. Emma says thats ok but doesn’t seem all that into it. Bodie joins them and TJ fills him in on whats going on. Apparently last night Rebecca “onion peeled” TJ, causing her to realise things about herself. Emma doesn’t seem amused in the slighest.

4.02pm – Demet, Hayley and Aleisha are doing some belly dancing(?) or hip shaking. Rebecca joins them and they all dance together. In the living room Emma tells Aleisha she can’t stand Rebecca, who has an obnoxious personality. Bodie joins them and Emma explains the details of what TJ said in her apology (about feeling like second best). Aleisha can’t beleive that and says some people are crazy. Aleisha can’t stand people saying “today will be the new me”. Emma says TJ was starting to go “coo coo”.


8.31pm – Nominations have just finished. Bodie, Emma, TJ and Zoran have been nominated. Hayley is called to the diary room and choses to save Emma and nominate Joel, even though she is already satisfied with who was nominated – BB says she must do it. BB won’t tell them who is now nominated until later. Hayley feels guilty and looks distressed. Some housemates console her and Hayley gets very distraught when Joel talks about losing Friday Night Games. In the bathroom Travis tells Aleisha he doesn’t even think about nominations – but it’s weird. Aleisha jokes she won’t bother unpacking her suitcase this week. Emma tells Hayley not to worry about the nomination twist, as does Demet who doens’t see why Hayley is stressing out. Hayley doesn’t want to be responsible for an eviction, but Demet reminds her its part of the game and everyone will leave the house with no regrets. Andrew and Thomas have a chat in the lounge room – Andrew explains its crap because there is nothing he can do right now to make Hayley feel better.

Hayley walks outside to be on her own. Bodie is in the pool and TJ sits by the side. Bodie tells her it was cool hanging out with her today… but just as friends? TJ is glad she’s not worried about nominations this week. She’s at a good place in her life right now. Bodie splashes around and TJ tells him off for not paying attention to what she was saying. TJ says “its just good” the place she’s in right now. Bodie says he feels they are drifting away from each other and drifts away under the water. TJ forces a laugh for the lame joke.


12.03am – Joel asks Zoran who he thinks Hayley would have taken out and put in for nominations. Zoran really isn’t sure but says the thing that sucks is the first four nominees will be stressing about it. Joel is worried and doesn’t feel comfortable about this. “No ones safe”. In the bedroom Hayley tells Andrew she wishes they had talked more in the rewards room (about nominations?), but Andrew thinks she shouldn’t be stressing about the past. Bodie, Zoran and Joel are testing themselves about taking biscuits – saying if they take a long hard look at themselves in the mirrors they can resist the temptation to take them. They can’t resist and move to the kitchen to sneak some food, to the protest of Joel who goes along with it anyway.

12.44am – Lights out in the bedroom. The food boys are now smelling mustard and thinking of cheese burgers. Zoran and Bodie open a packet of biscuits and Joel tries to grab it off them to stop. The other housemates are asleep. Bodie contemplates what would happen if some one came out of the bedroom while they were taking biscuits. Joel says “enough is enough” and moves to the bedroom to tell the other housemates but Bodie jokes “what are you going to do?” and then rips Joel’s shirt off. Joel says “that was a perfectly good top”. Bodie replies “well you should have thought about that… see what you’ve done”.

Bodie and Zoran take biscuits with pickle relish while Joel watches on in disaproval. They say it tastes just like cheeseburgers. Joel resists the biscuits even after Zoran offers some. Afterwards the boys move into the bedroom and try not to laugh. Bodie crawls into bed and tells TJ he’s confused because she’s been the “TJ I like” today – really good and fun and easy going. TJ says if he wants to cuddle then he’s thinking too much into it. With that Bodie replies “get here”, and they cuddle.
