BIG BROTHER: POWER TRIP
DAILY UPDATE: DAY 13
To be shown Wednesday 18th June 2014, 10pm on Channel 5
The Housemates wake up to find that the house has been transformed for this week’s shopping task. Pauline notices cages and a haystack in the garden and the Housemates speculates that they might be the animals which Toya finds, ‘degrading’, to which Ash replies: ‘Degrading? You’re on Big Brother, the whole experience is degrading!’
Chris is called to the diary room to discuss with Big Brother the after-effects of Jale and Christopher hearing a member of the public shouting over the fence that he was the Power Housemate.
Big Brother tells the Housemates that the Power Housemates reign is over and again all the Housemates are equal but warns that a new Power Housemate will return.
Toya talks to Jale and Ashleigh about her disagreement with Christopher where she tells them that she is getting irritated with herself for falling for the small things in the house. Christopher has been in the room the whole time and approaches the group and again states to Toya that he feels he has done nothing wrong and tell her that she is, ‘such a negative person’. She replies: ‘you’re an immature little boy.’
Steven confides in Matthew that he suspects that Jale and Danielle are trying to warn Kimberly off him.
Danielle is talking to Kimberly about her blossoming romance with Steven. Kimberly states that she isn’t keen on anything happening in the house and Danielle agrees, saying: You would wait until you’re both out and see how you are the outside world.’ Kim then admits: ‘I’m just worried that it will just ******ing happen anyway.’
Big Brother invites Marlon, Jale and Christopher to the diary room to tell them about the next shopping task: The Farm. Big Brother explains that these housemates are the, ‘farmers’, they are given farmers clothes and told that they must earn their shopping budget through the production of sufficient farm produce to sell to Big Brother and that the rest of the Housemates will be their working animals. They must pick which Housemates will be chickens, pigs or cows.
Danielle and Matthew have a disagreement when she says she thinks the task is degrading and will have an effect on her glamour modelling career.
The Housemates complete tasks including one where the chickens, who are Danielle, Ash, Matthew and Mark, have to pass eggs to each other down the factory line using only their mouths, for the farmer, Jale to collect.
Jale and Chris have an argument over what was shouted over the garden wall – which was ‘Chris is the Power Housemate’ – she tells him to stop denying it.
The farmer Housemates are told by Big Brother that the farm needs to diversify to improve profit margins and that some of the Housemates should realise the value of some of their animals and those Housemates must be sent to the meat reclamation yard for exploitation and re-education. They pick Chris, Matthew and Kimberly to enter the reclamation yard and those Housemates need to the guess the farmer’s answers about the Housemates, if they get the answers wrong they must face the bloody consequences. The animals get the majority of the questions correct, earning the animals a hot meal.
The housemates who have been watching the exploitation and re-education task are very surprised at the farmer’s behaviour. They are happy that Jale was forthright and made the decisions as they were shocked at how on the fence Christopher and Marlon were. Mark comments that it was like, ‘watching strangers’. The task rattles the house in both positive and negative ways. Mark and Helen are really impressed with Jale’s handling of her position as farmer. Pauline tells Christopher that he needs to follow his instincts and stop worrying about being polite.
The winning of the meal doesn’t seem to be good enough for Toya who challenges Matthew, saying that some of the answers were really obvious and that they could have made more money out of the challenge. Matthew is not happy and responds: ‘I’m sorry I wasn’t good enough for your liking’.
Toya and Mark discuss her argument with Matthew and Mark says: ‘Your tone was a bit rude’ and ‘I know you’re close to cracking’. Mark walks away which results in Toya confiding to Ashleigh: ‘I want to get out of this house. I’ve had enough, I’m at that point. I’m at the point where I want to pack my s**t and go, I don’t have time for this s**t. The next person that tries me. I will sit there and tell them about themselves cos I’ve ******ing had enough.’
Helen goes to the diary room to express her changed opinion of Jale, saying: ‘she played it fair and square’ and ‘I’ve changed my opinion about her a lot’. She admits that without Jale the animals wouldn’t have won the hot food.
Chris and Danielle discuss the atmosphere in the house and Chris remarks that whoever goes on Friday, the problems in the house will remain. They are incredulous that someone cried because they got nominated and Danielle exclaims: ‘On a game-show!’ They also observe that Pauline is playing her cards close to her chest and Chris remarks that Pauline is, ‘trying a different tactic this week’.
Some of the Housemates are shown their new sleeping quarters for the night – a barn. Mark exclaims: ‘It smells like s**t’. Danielle tells the Housemates in the barn that Chris has been saying that Christopher didn’t get the attention when he was nominated that the subsequent Housemates got and that he feels that those Housemates are, ‘the cool kids’. She also tells them that Chris has mentioned that he finds the conversations in the house, ‘boring’.
Ash explains to the housemates how we would feel if he left on Friday: ‘I’d get dead emotional I think’.
1. Chris is in the diary room talking about what Jale and Chris heard in the garden regarding him being the Power Housemate.
Chris: ‘Jale is making this very difficult with her big fearful eyes and her wandering off.’
Big Brother: ‘What are you worried about Chris?’
Chris: ‘That Jale will start to speculate. She’s not subtle, she’s not as clever as she think she is in her actions. Chris is acting exactly the same. It’s a bit difficult for me because there’s Chris who runs on obsolete software and then there’s Jale who believes in angels. I can’t really account for how either of those two are going to behave. Chris is like something that fell off the factory line. He’s nearly a functioning human being, but something’s not right’.
2. Ash is talking to Winston about his budding romance with Helen.
Ash: ‘If I end up staying something might happen, eventually.’
Ash: ‘I don’t want to ****ing try it on and then I’d just be like, feel a bit weird about it.’
Ash: ‘I’m not even too bothered at the minute.’
Ash: ‘I’m just good mates with her, I’d rather like have a lark for a bit instead of trying it on and making it well weird’.
Ash: ‘She knows that I like her a bit now.’
3. Kimberly and Steven are talking in the barn.
Steven: ‘Do you think I’ll go?’
Kimberly: ‘I don’t think you’ll go. That would be ridiculous. I’m not even worried that you’re going to go.’
Steven: ‘What happens if I do go? I’ll be well upset.’
Kimberly: ‘I would be too.’
Steven: ‘Can’t help it though I suppose, fingers crossed.’
Second part of conversation.
Steven: ‘I would never, ever, ever engage with somebody that I thought genuinely there was no future. There’s fun, there’s happiness, there’s enjoying people’s company but I would never, ever, ever make a statement unless I knew the person could potentially be seen as a partner rather than a friend and that’s my view on it and hopefully if I stay on Friday you’ll get to know me more and understand that I’m not that type of person, never have been, never will be. So I don’t want you to ever worry about trust or anything like that. I know you’re a girl and it’s only natural but rest assured I’d never do anything to ever hurt you.’
Kimberly: ‘Yeah I know.’
