|To pass this week’s shopping task, all Housemates must do is score 100 points. Over the course of the next two days, Big Brother will be setting Housemates a number of challenges where they can win points towards the 100 points target. Housemates may also lose points – for example, by giving in to the temptations Big Brother offers.
In the Living Area there is an empty container. Each time Housemates win a point, a red ball will drop into the container. Each time a point is lost, a ball will drop out of the container. Each ball represents one point. The number of balls will be counted at the end of the shopping task.
If Housemates earn 100 points or more, they will pass this week’s shopping task and win a premium shopping budget. Failure to reach 100 points will mean that housemates will fail this weeks shopping task and receive an economy shopping delivery.
SCALES OF SACRIFICE
There are a giant set of weighing scales in the living room which are accompanied by a set of three weights. The lightest weight is marked 5 points, the middle weight 10 points and the heaviest weight 20 points. Housemates are allowed to choose which weight they will attempt to balance. Housemates must use their own possessions to balance the scales. If they can balance the scales with the 5 point weight, they will win 5 points, the 10 point weight wins them 10 points and so on. Any items placed on the scale when balanced will be removed from the house, permanently.
CUT OUT SMOKING
A non-smoking Housemate must decide whether or not to sacrifice all the group’s cigarettes in order to win them a number of points.
A Housemate will be offered a delicious fast food burger. If they choose to eat this, the group will be cost points. This dilemma will be repeated throughout the day. The number of burgers on offer to chosen housemates will increase throughout the day, subsequently increasing temptation levels.
ROOM OF TEMPTATION – BB’S BEAUTY SALON
A Housemate enters the Room of Temptation to be faced with their sister sitting and waiting for them in Big Brother’s Beauty Salon. They may spend an hour getting pampered and having a gossip with their sis, but it will cost the group points.
The two Housemates nominated this week will take it in turns to stand behind a plinth. They must guess three of the Housemates who nominated them. The housemates they choose will take it in turns to stand in a gunge tank in the Garden. Deana and Lydia will gunge those housemates that they think are guilty of nominating them – Big Brother will then reveal whether or not they guessed correctly. If the gunged Housemate did in fact nominate them, they will win points for the group. However, if they gunged an innocent Housemate, they will lose the points instead.
ROOM OF TEMPTATION – THE PHONECALL
A Housemate will be invited into the Room of Temptation, where they will find a phone. An answer phone message will play, revealing a loved one who is waiting on the phone. If they pick up the receiver to talk to them, it will cost the group points.
FREE TRIAL PARTY
Big Brother will tease Housemates with a party, but it will be over before it has barely begun. If Housemates wish for the party to continue, the group will lose points.
The task will continue tomorrow.
