The Chilli Challenge

To decide the next Head of House, Big Brother made the entire group take part in a chilli-eating challenge in the Diary Room this afternoon.

Dale was first up, and was presented with eight chillies going from mild at the bottom of the scale to really hot at number 8. The trainee teacher donned plastic gloves to handle the odd-shaped vegetables, and had to chew each one at least five times; there would be no swallowing down in one go to lessen the burning sensation.

After chomping on number 4 first, Dale then opted for number 1 but couldn't quite hack it. Consequently, the former HoH had problems breathing and sicked-up before rushing out-of the Diary Room to splash himself with water, consume a glass of milk and brush his teeth vigorously.

A baffled Luke asked, "Have you been stung on your tongue?" but Dale wasn't allowed to tell his peers what was going on. However, the group quickly sussed that it was something to do with spicy food, and dubbed next-to-go Kat the yardstick by which the challenge should be measured.

Indeed, the 30-year-old Thai housemate relished the challenge, polishing-off numbers 3, 4, 6 and 7 before running out-of time. Mikey also did fantastically well, eating numbers 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 before giving-up, having scored a whopping 30 points.

But while Mikey exited the Diary Room calmly, next-to-go Mohamed came out in a total-and-utter frenzy and jumped straight into a cold shower. Quick, call the fire brigade, Mo's mouth's on fire! However, Luke, Dale and Stuart – the former having failed to eat a single chilli and the latter not having taken his turn – suggested that their greedy peer was just exaggerating for effect.

It was Stuart who put-in the best effort, making mincemeat of numbers 1, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 before saying of the highest-numbered chilli, "Are you sure that's meant to be the hottest?"

However, somewhat ironically the 25-year-old then began to struggle, but continued-on to consume number 5 despite saying, "I don't want to be Head of House, but I want to win this". Stu ate a total of seven out of a possible eight chillies, but was unable to finish number 2.

The maximum score was 36, and here's how well they all did, from worst to best:

Luke: zero
Rachel: zero
Dale: 5
Maysoon: 9
Lisa: 9
Darnell: 10
Kathreya: 20
Sara: 24
Rex: 26
Mohamed: 28
Mikey: 30
Stuart: 34

The result of the Chilli Challenge determined this week's Head of House and also the Heavenly Housemates, with Sara just missing-out on a place in paradise.
