· Big Brother has gathered all of the Housemates to go head-to-head in pairs in a game of
· One-upmanship. Housemates are set challenges; all they need to do is go one better than their opponent.

· Renee and Katie go head-to-head to be the Most Dramatic. Both perform a dramatic scene; Ricky and Frankie are challenged to find out who is the Most Outrageous, supplied with honey and feathered pillows. Lewis and Bear go head-to-head with clippers to be the Bravest Housemate. Lewis shaves his pubic hair while Bear sticks to his eyebrows and hair.
· Aubrey and James must challenge each other to be the Most Real by giving an opinion on Housemates. Bear is the first Housemate to hear home truths, James tells him: “…the bad reputation you’re getting will swallow you up if you’re not careful,” but adds that he is a good guy.

· Ricky is saved from eviction. Big Brother host Emma announces that both James and Lewis are evicted, Marnie is stunned and begins to cry as the pair say their goodbyes and leave the House.
· Marnie is being comforted by some of the Housemates. Aubrey tells her that this will be her opportunity to shine. Bear is also upset. “It’s bulls**t mate, it weren’t his time…you put him up so why are you giving her hugs." Renee reminds Bear that it’s a “public vote.”
· Renee, Ricky and Samantha are talking about Bear’s reaction to his fellow Housemates after Lewis was evicted. Rickysays that Bear is upset because he knows that Lewis was evicted “because of him.” Renee rebuts this and says Bear actually thinks they are “pretending to give a ******, even though some of them put Lewis up for nomination. “He’s not able to understand the whole picture, he clearly has no remorse.”
· Marnie is crying in the Bedroom. Ricky is in the Diary Room talking to Bog Brother. Bear and Renee are in the Garden talking about Marnie.
