Task Failed Again And Guess Who's To Blame?
For several days now the housemates have been acting like
big kids. Literally!
Having paraded around in their lovely green jumpers, stripy
scarves and plastic woggles, the would-be Cub Scouts put their
newfound knowledge to the test this evening, as Big Bro set
the group a 3-part challenge.
First, they were required to erect a tent using just three
members of the group. With names picked from a bag, Cam, Justine
and Jon were chosen for this duty and unsurprisingly, Jon
immediately took-up the role of site foreman.
As they beavered away with no pressure from a time limit,
the tension between the two nominated enemies was temporarily
forgotten and their part of the challenge was on target for
A short time later, as the see-through structure stood in
all it's glory, the 'tent-tastic' trio received a round of
applause from the other 'Cubs'.
Then came a test of how well the group had learnt to tie five
different knots: the Reef, Sheepshank, Clove hitch, Round
turn & Two half hitches.
With five housemates being chosen to take part in this section
of BB's challenge, they each picked an envelope at random
and had just one minute to correctly tie the relevant knot.
They all did well.
Finally, the remaining three housemates, Scott, Fed and Steph
faced a question from Big Bro on the background of Cub Scouting.
However, when cocky Fed was asked to recite the Cub Scout
Law, the 23-year-old waiter actually recited the Cub Scout
Here at BBO we've noticed that the wording of the Law had
a certain irony to it: 'Cub Scouts always do their best, think
of others before themselves and do a good turn every day'.
He certainly did his best alright... to mess things up for
everyone else by reducing their weekly shopping budget to
a measly £36! So, that's a tally of two weekly tasks
and two total cock-ups by Fed.
Oh goody, the others will be pleased. Not!
Fed didn't 'fess-up to his error and in fact, he proceeded
to tell the group how he, "Said the Promise, word for
word". Yes Fed, but you should have been paying attention
to the question, shouldn't you?
The fact that he sloped off to bed early leads us to believe
that he knew he'd got it wrong and Scott later hinted
This puts the Glasgow boy in something of a 'no-win' situation:
if he admits to the mistake, the housemates might nominate
him but if he doesn't, the public will be gunning for him!
Oh for the simple life of a real 10-year-old Cub Scout, eh
