Day 16 Uplate

Ah yes, another late night, and another redention of a song from Chrissie. We join the round house (surprise surprise!) where Leah, Chrissie, Daniel & perhaps Joanne (unsure) are in the living room.

Quickly cut straight to the square bedroom, where Carlo is having a conservation with someone. In fact, I think everyone is in bed. They discuss that some people might be swaped fairly soon ( I haven’t seen nomination show yet so I have no idea if they’ve been told anything.), suggesting that that would be a dumb idea. Referring it to Survivor. And then suddenly, everything is quiet. I’m sure it was a hard day for all, rest should do them well.

Back to the living room in the round house, where Joanne is talking then decides it’s time for the toilet again. They each talk about how long their fingernails are. Patrick is also sitting in the living area as well, leaving only Ben and Regina in the bedroom (I imagine.)

They start discussing Gumbi video’s for some unknown reason, and Leah wants to track them down once she gets out of the house. Patrick and Daniel are talking about some technical mumble jumble, while Leah and Chrissie discuss Marketing jobs, and starting salaries. Assume that Leah is at Uni in this field, and is trying to figure out what she will be earning first year out into the real world.

They somehow get onto talking about insects, and cicadas in particular. Now you know there are two ways on saying cicadas, well they did the tomato song with that word. Funny stuff!

You say Cicadas
I say Cicadas
Cicadas, Cicadas etc etc.

All get up from their seats and start heading slowly toward the bedroom. Ben and Regina are in bed, Regina asleep and Ben just reading. Ben then gets up and looks to go out into the main living area, while everyone else gets ready for bed. And then the music comes on, and BB goes to a break.

Well, they decided against bed it seems. There are a few (Leah in underwear!) out at the fridge (leah, Ben, Patrick) eating something. It looks to be raining quite heavily. Ah, one would think they are eating late night chocolate snacks, but rather vegemite sandwiches by the look of it! Daniel is also outside with them. The 4 move into the living room, and then into the bedroom.

OMG. Brain Teaser dude just came on and scared the living daylights out of me. You can win up to $900 cash or something by talking to the guy live or some rubbish. Enough already, get back to the house!!

Back in the round house bedroom, Patrick is getting changed and having a laugh with Ben. Leah, Pat, Ben, Patrick, Joanne and Chrissie are all camped around the first three beds. (ie Chrissie, Joanne and Ben’s beds.) Not sure if Daniel is there or whether he’s trying to sleep. Another Ad Break.

Back to the square house for a sec, who seem to be asleep. So back we jump to the round house. The talk is all about text messages. Chrissie always uses the maximum characters in each sms. OMG how boring would that be, I normally just write a few words!

They discuss messaging each other once outside the house. Please don’t be stupid enough to actually say your phone number out loud!

Chrissie moves onto SClub7 or whatever they call themselves. She says that they are always so happy! LOL. Ah great, here’s the trivia guy again.

When we are returned to the house, they are commenting on how Ben looks a bit older than he actually is. Fair enough too, he hasn’t got much hair. Still going on about how old he is lol, and he’s beginning to get a bit pissed off.

Ad for the swapover tomorrow night comes on. Whats the bet that Belinda gets swaped over to the other house! They bring up the topic of betting on tasks. Most are all in the the kind of mood to say stuff it, lets bet 100%. Always a bad idea!!!

A few gas type smells have been let off tonight, and Chrissie has finally had enough, and is ready to open the door so she can breathe once again!

Joanne and Patrick seem to get closer and closer as each day goes by. They are lying on Joanne’s bed, and seem quite happy. Ben has gone out of the conversation a bit, but Chrissie is still talking a fair bit. Leah has gone to her own bed. In fact, they decide they have had enough talking, and all of them return to their own beds and call it a night.

LMAO!!!! OMG. Chrissie has just said to the house “We’re not going anywhere tomorrow. They are going to just swap bags.” Oh, they couldn’t be that cruel could they!

All in all it’s been a pretty uneventful night in both houses. While the Round house was talkative, their conversations were pretty much about nothing, which makes for boring television. Add to that the fact that I can’t be bothered tonight, and thats the reason this recap isn’t very good!

Day 13 Uplate

Up Late for another night. I didn’t get home till too late last night, and seeing everyone was asleep when I got home, there was no update. We join in the square house where Leah is still yelling and annoying all of the housemates. Vincent is trying to communicate to Leah and Regina, who are outside by themselves.

Suddenly they start discussing states and where people live. Saxon asks Leah is she is from some suburb in NSW, to which she replies yes. Saxon then reveals that he knows her boyfriend or something to that affect. Leah starts talking as if Saxon is Daniel, which is very strange.

Regina and Vincent had the same audition as well, so they know each other. Belinda then asks if there is a Daniel in their house, to which Leah replies yes. She then goes and gets him to talk to Belinda.

While waiting, Belinda tells Vincent that Daniel is gay. God knows where she got that from! Camera’s follow Leah inside, where Leah reveals there is 2 Daniel’s in the house. Hmm, she seems to describe Saxon perfectly. Remember last year Nathan was also called Marty, but Nathan in the house so as to not get confused. Maybe Saxon’s real name is Daniel.

By the way, there is beeping in this ‘live’ feed, but only when there is mentioned of boyfriends names or something like that. So perhaps were on a slight delay. Saxon is not in there, so says Leah. How wrong she is.

Ben then launches into ribbing Leah, saying that Leah is sexually attracted to this Daniel guy (Saxon). She strongly denies saying that Ben is wrong, Ben replying that he is never wrong. Singing in the background from what must be the living room. Ben, Pat and Jo are in the bedroom talking, with the lights still on. Ben and Jo have a play fight on Ben’s bed. Ben says that he was asleep before Pat and Jo came in, then says in a playful tone that he has to leave, cause this place is stressing him out.

Ben wants to go to bed, saying everyone must go to bed because Big Daddy says so. He says enough is enough about everyone talking in the living room. Ben, Jo & Chrissie are having an argument about whether Daniel is attracted to Chrissie, Chrissie saying that they are 100% friends. Ben drags Regina into the bedroom as well, and they start play fighting as well.

LOL, Ben asks Jo if he can use here car, to which she replies ‘yeh sure, its out the front.’ Someone has let off a nice smell, and there saying it’s a girl smell! Funny stuff in this house tonight.

Chrissie goes back out to the living room, and talks to Leah about this Daniel guy, who is HOT according to Leah. They have worked out almost all of their names, and say they have done well to not reveal their own names just yet. I wonder if they realise that in about 4 days they will all be together (See BBA story “The Wall’s Coming Down!?”)

Jo has just got changed, and god that girl is hot! They get into a petty argument, saying Kylie wouldn’t ‘accidentally pop out her boob’, maybe we did miss something. Jo is getting pissing off with Ben now, who is trying to say that Jo might have done it on purpose. Jo states that she tries very hard to protect herself, and hopes that it didn’t come out just now. Pity the camera’s were away, I could have been the judge :) Now they are happy papa and mama again, Ben putting his hand on her leg. While they don’t seem to have as many personal moments these days (obvious reasons because people are in the house with them), but I still think they rate each other very highly, and love each others company. I think if they had the chance to be down to the last three, Ben, Pat and Jo would all like those 3 as the last 3. Wow, I’m going way ahead, Benny could be out in 2 days!!! They cut to an ad break, so its time to grab a drink.

Back from the ad and we’re in the square house, with the whole gang sitting on the couch. BB has perhaps given them a bit of alcohol tonight by the sounds of it. And they are playing with condoms, as you would be of course! Everyone is having a good laugh about it though :)

Carlo leaves to go to the toilet, although he calls it something a bit different! They start talking about a movie, mainly Belinda and Saxon, called perhaps “The Calling.” Not 100% sure about that title. Saxon says he needs to get some water into him otherwise he’s gonna wake up seedy. Someone yells out that he has a bottle of water in his hand! Such a smart boy :)

Irena has blown her condom into a huge balloon, looking quite good. Suddenly we’re back in the round house, and Ben is still not happy. He just wants to go to bed, and everyone is talking and not letting him get any shut eye. There is at least 4 people in the bedroom, oops make that 5. Leah has settled into bed, Chrissie and Jo are singing, and Patrick, Ben and Regina are having a conversation. They mention that the other house seem drunk, saying that if they only got the same amount of alcohol they got, they don’t know how to drink. Ben raises the point again, that they might have got more than them because they are in the ‘better’ house.

Lights turn out, and Leah thanks Big Brother. They must have had a bit to drink cause Jo is very happy, singing with Chrissie still. Ben is about to hit them! He goes on to talk to Leah about her boyfriend perhaps, because we hear a lot of beeps from Ch10. With that, it’s time for another ad.

While the girls continue their sing along, the camera’s cut back to the square house, where Belinda shows her condom creation. Carlo makes his look like a penis, and then starts talking rubbish which I can’t be bothered writing.

Claire is by herself in the bedroom, and goes to the toilet. Cut to outside and Belinda tells Jaime that she can’t believe that they have had sex in the other house already. Jaime says that they are just lying too. Finally someone smart :) Apparently it’s freezing outside tonight, which is a great reason to actually walk outside. Vincent comes to join them, sitting at the table by himself, while Jame and Belinda sit near the Barbeque.

Belinda asks Vincent if he is tired or pissed off. Just tired he says. Vincent is doing his nightly face wash thingy stuff, while Belinda and Vincent eat M&M’S. They thank BB for a great night, hope we see some highlights sometime over the weekend. When Belinda & Vincent head inside, Jaime justs sits on the seat, enjoying the quiet time. And cue another break.

Vincent & Jaime are having a convo outside. Jaime says that while everyone clicked straight away, you can see now how some people are different, groups are forming, and that he is totally different to the people inside. Vincent says to Jaime ‘they put us here for a reason.’ Jaime can’t figure out bear, or Claire. He can’t tell what shes thinking, while Vincent says he can. He says besides (Vincent) Claire, who is smart, there is nothing to figure (suggesting that perhaps the others are a bit silly, stupid.) Belinda comes back out and thanks the guys for a great night. She seems sincere. Vincent says ‘shes gonna make a great mother one day.’ He is so right too, she cares soo much about everyone.

They tend there conversation toward whats going to happen on Sunday night. Vincents says the one you least suspect will probably go. He would love a nice drink and a cigarette. I suspect Jaime doesn’t smoke, as he just smiles. Irena joins them after the break, and start taling about singers.

Cut back to the round house, and Chrissie is singing (not half bad.) Quickly back to Claire and Belinda in their bedroom, the only two in the room. Belinda says something about how beep (boyfriend) is sleeping with someone different every night. Claire is stressing because she thinks someone she likes might also be seeing another person. They only just came to this conversation, so I’m unsure if thats exactly what she means. Claire is stressed because maybe some of her friends didn’t know that she was bi, or perhaps because she just wants to go back to her friends as Claire, not Claire from BB.

Claire is again talking about a girl she has met, via the Mardi Gra, and has been with as friends, I dunno, for the last two and a half months. Apparently they spent a lot of time together before she went into the BB House, although she didn’t go into the lockdown with her. Claire says that it was a good decision, if they had been together all that time, she would have been out within a few days. Jen is the name of the girl, and she has moved back to Sydney. Perhaps they were friends, but both wanted more, but being in different states is difficult. Belinda is being really nice during this conversation. And just when we have a good convo, BB pulls away from it.

Leah and Patrick are talking in their living room, while the girls are STILL singing in the bedroom. Talking about how long they’ve been in the house. They talk about Carmel and how great she is. Leah says she trusts her the most out of all the BB people behind the scenes.

FIREWORKS!!!! Thats a great way to get everyone up!! Dunno what it was, but almost everyone is outside. Saxon’s real name is Daniel for sure by the dound of this. Leah says she is cold to Saxon, saying “I’m in my underwear!” They are talking by themselves, saying they both came in the same night. LOL, Leah asks if he is nominated, and Saxon goes “Did I nominate you?” Saxon says “I’m going to bed, sexy, I’ll talk to you tomorrow”. Leah didn’t hear the sexy part though. Vincent is also outside, saying that it must have been a test run for fireworks. Well that sure bought some life into the show at 10 past the hour of 1. Great timing whoever arranged that :)

Irena, Saxon & Vincent are talking about the dates, with Jaime there as well. Irena knows what date it is, saying it’s Friday 9th May. She knows this cause friends are having a party on Saturday the 10th. She also mentions that Sunday is Mother’s Day.

Irena says that she had her moons read before entering, and the man told her she would have a long journey, with much stress, but would meet a man during this time, and come to the end of the journey with lots of stress but still get all she desires out of it. Interesting stuff.

Back to Patrick and Leah. They are talking about how you can’t escape chatter in this house, everywhere you sit you can’t escape some from of talk. Leah says she would go outside, but she gets sidetracked each time she goes out there because she wants to speak to next door. She is very excited about Daniel (Sax) next door, and says that she took time to get use to the longness of the house, and thats its not round. They talk how there must be a secret room in here somewhere. And another ad break cuts in.

Belinda is crying a bit in the square house, with Jaime comforting her. Someone, Carlo I think, said to her that she should not be in here. No, not Carlo, rather Saxon, I think, she said a 19 year old boy, and I am assuming that it ain’t Jaime seeing she is talking to him at present. After Sax said it, Carlo did as well apparently, so there both in her bad books for now. They were all in bed, but Belinda came out after it, and Jaime came to comfort her. Cut to the bedroom and Sax and Carlo come out. Please don’t cut us here BB. Saxon comes out cause he is hurt, and Belinda says ‘oh well f***, look at me.’

Saxon says why that happen is because he talked about Leah, and that everything that he said was true. Belinda looked at him then as if he was wrong earlier, and that he shouldn’t believe everything that you here, thus errupting the argument.

Cut to the bedroom, and Claire, Irena & Vincent are talking. I thought they were talking about housemates but I turned to the TV and they are playing with a Rubic Cue LOL. And then, Dreamworld says goodbye, and goodnight.

By far the most interesting BB: Up Late show for the week tonight, must have been because of the free booze. Maybe BB will pick up on this and let them have a bit more occassionally. Right from the start, through to the end, there was no snoring, and for the most part good healthy conversations. We finally get a few good conversations out of the square house, prime examples were the Vincent/Jaime and Claire/Belinda conversations. Perhaps they were even more interesting than the round house tonight. The conversation between Leah & Patrick toward the end was good, interrupted by the fireworks, while Joanne and Ben’s conversation near the start was also quite good.

Day 11 Uplate

A good evening to everyone, or even an early morning. Whichever you prefer. I was at work till after midnight, so I missed the commencement of Up Late, but will fill you in on what I’ve seen tonight.

It started like every other night, all the round house was in bed. They were chatting away about there fire task, and that if BB kept asking them to do it (in other words setting off the alarm) there would soon be no one left because of injuries.

I can see that Chrissie has something wrong with one of her foots, and apparently someone else is injured, perhaps Leah, although I’m not entirely sure.

Patrick is doing Big Brotherimpersonations, saying “This is Big Brother, Do not worry about the fire out the back, the fire brigade will come and save you. We cannot risk anymore injuries.” It’s all funny stuff in this room, although Reggie seems to be very much asleep.

Daniel puts on a half british accent, and starts talking absolute rubbish, but it gets some laughs out of the other housemates.

Leah then lets the house know how she feels saying “Can we all just get some sleep please. With this task, and not knowing when we’re going to be called up for action, I’d like some sleep.” Fair enough point considering too, and so the house has calmed down and are now trying to drift too sleep.

However, Ben is now more ‘wired’ than he has been previously in the house, and isn’t ready for sleep. When they hear a noise coming from outside, Ben jumps up to have a look, but can’t see anything out of the ordinary. He slowly returns to his bed, which co-incedentally has the only light on, in the room. They have decided to keep one on so they can see what they’re doing when the alarm for the drill goes off.

Finally, we cross over to the square house. Well, it’s fun times over here, with everyone asleep. This is going to be a very interesting next 45 minutes or so, which is how long the show is on for still. It’s quickly pulled back to the round house, because it’s more exciting, because they have a light on!

While Joanne uses Ben’s light to get some more reading in, everyone else has seemed to nod off to dreamland. I wonder whether we’ll see one more fire drill before Channel 10 pulls up stumps.

Just after 1:20am they are woken by the alarm, and run outside to complete the task. And of course, I was watching the daily show in this time (Recorded), and missed it. I see them when they return to the bedroom, Patrick saying ‘that was the hardest.’ Instantly, most believe they failed that drill. It looks as if at least Chrissie was excused from the drill alsol. Leah is also worried that she stepped onto the platform while someone else was still going down the fireman slide. She seems to think that is an instant fail, but Ben says ‘nah, that didn’t happen.’

Regina & Leah then go about sorting out their sheets, as they both share the double bed. Ben then decides to check the rulebook, paranoid by Leah’s comment. Joanne grabs the rules, and after reading, says ‘we failed.’ She then proceeds to read the rules, and while they are not all convinced, they do believe that they might well have failed the task totally already, and not just one strike (allowed two from what I can tell.) And suddenly, Ch10 go to a break, which at least advertises BB Uncut, Thursday 9:30pm :)

When we are returned to the round bedroom, all is quiet as everyone settles themselves back to sleep. Not even a whisper from anyone for the rest of the program. At 1:47am AET Big Brother puts us out of our misery and wishes us a good night :)
