It's for $10000, and it's only for a week. I wouldn't pass up $10000 just so I can eat some solid food for a week. The shakes would provide adequate nutrition - as Priya said, they aren't going to starve. A week of slight discomfort is totally worth it. Hell, if I were in that situation, I would drink nothing but shakes for my entire stay in the Big Brother house if it meant I'd be guaranteed that $10000. I guess for some people it'd be a big deal not eating solid food, but anybody who would let that opportunity pass them by so easily has to be insane. Housemates no longer walk out of that house and receive consolation prizes as they used to - long term rewards for short term sacrifices and all that jazz.Don't forget, she'd have to be drinking those shakes, too.
