Day 8 in the Big Brother house…
Claire is philosophical about being evicted.
In the diary room James says ‘The games have begun now. And when talking about Frenchy he says ‘I can’t stand her, I despise her as a human being.
James tells Gary that whenever he goes for a shower to make sure one of the boys is there with him as it’s slippery and he’s worried about his knee. Audley tells Gary that ‘no-one wants to see your dingaling but we need to be there.’
Lauren is warned about pissing in the pool. She’s not sure if she but says sorry anyway after Big Brother points out this is immature behaviour for a twenty seven year old.
Dee tells Claire that she’s scared of Leslie comparing him to Hannibal Lecter and a Jack Russell.
Leslie shares a childhood memory with Kellie in the pod about a Christmas visit to Santa when he was three and asked for a bride doll. His father said that he would have one ‘over his dead body’ but his mother said she couldn’t break it to little Leslie that he couldn’t have his doll and in the end his stern father went out and bought him one so he wouldn’t be disappointed on Christmas morning.
Housemates will have to endure Big Brother’s phobia tests. What they don’t know is that the whole task actually rests on Gary, who will have to convince housemates he has a genuine phobia of balloons. When faced with fears housemates can press their panic buzzer and stop the task, however they’ll think this incurs a fail.
Stephanie - Osmophobia – The Fear Of Smells – She has to place her head in an enclosed box with items such as rotting meat, stinky cheese, dirty socks and buzzing flies.
Edele - Omphalophonia – The Fear Of Belly Buttons – She has to have her face mashed into a man’s belly button.
Ricci – Neophobia - The Fear Of Surprises – He has to open a box that contains an unknown item… which gunges him in the face.
Kellie, Dee and Frenchy - Epistemophobia – The fear of knowledge - They must each stand behind the knowledge podium to test if they are scared of answering questions posed to them by Big Brother, the rest of the housemates are watching on the plasma.
Frenchy – Who’s being fake and why? – Kellie – She’s nice to her and then talks about her behind her back.
Kellie – Biggest ego and why? – Leslie – He’s intent on winning and he’s camping it up and suffers from small man ego.
Dee – Most manipulative and why? – Gary – He seems to come alive when he thinks there is a live eviction. He manipulates situations because someone told him he would be here till the end.
David and Lauren - Arachnophobia – fear of spiders. They are put in a room together with a panic button and the lights go out. A person dressed as a spider comes into the room and lightly touches Lauren’s shoulder and she presses the panic button.
James and George - Morrischorophobia – fear of Morris Dancing. They are both fully kitted out in the full traditional dress and start to dance when the music starts.
James helps David out with his workout.
Stephanie talks to Kellie and Lauren about her split with Spencer Matthews after he cheated on her in September.
Frenchy and Gary form an alliance.
The home truths revealed in the shopping task leaves Gary wanting a word with Dee. He tells her that he’s died twice and has been privy to information not available on earth. Dee says: ‘That’s as maybe.’ And he takes this as a statement of non-belief.
George tells Frenchy that if he had been asked who the most fake is he would have said her because she has fake boobs and hair and he bets even her Uggs are fake.
Lauren tells Stephanie that she thinks that Ricci is a very good guy but she doesn’t have ‘that fancy for him.’
James and George are called to the diary room for the shopping taskvand as George walks off he and Stephanie exchange ‘I love you.’
Stephanie announces that she misses George and tells the group that if he leaves she might have to leave with him.
Stephanie goes to the Diary and demands to know where George is and that Big Brother must get him down as he usually provides the entertainment and all the Housemates are missing him.
