Mario Gets Engaged To Lisa, Live On BBLB
We said in this
article from last week that Mario would enter the House today
to propose to Lisa. Well, he didn't enter the House, but he
Former housemate Mario turned-up in the garden during today's
'Big Brother's Little Brother' show, presumably because if
he'd actually entered the House, pedantic detractors who voted
him out could technically have claimed their money back.
