A Reminder Of How They Earnt 'Housemate' Status
The group of fifteen bona fide 'housemates', the people you'll
be watching for the foreseeable future, is now complete. Here's
a quick reminder of how they earnt their status in the game:
On Day 1, the sixteen contenders came out-of hiding and entered
the Big Brother House, only to find-out that they were considered
'non-housemates' by Big Bro, or house guests/ hopefuls if
It was Rodrigo who became the first person to gain proper
housemate status and have access to parts of the House other
than the sparsely furnished living room, toilet and garden.
The Brazilian student did this by being the first one to enter
the Diary Room during the Launch show.
Rodrigo's challenge, which earnt him the right to stay in
the House and avoid the public vote tonight (Day 4), was to
convince one of his peers to have their eyebrows shaved off
and a comedy moustache and glasses drawn on their face in
permanent marker pen. He had just 4 minutes in-which to do
Noirin volunteered, and the Irish retailer would have-to
continue the moustache/ glasses thing every day until further
notice, and for agreeing to do this she gained full housemate
status and the right to wear her own clothes.
Later that evening, the phone rang and Lisa just beat Siavash
to answering it, automatically becoming the third bona fide
housemate. The mohawk-wearing Brummie was given 15 minutes
to secretly choose someone as the fourth housemate proper,
and she chose Kris.
On Day 2, Big Bro's SAS pals stormed the House and the group
had to put forward three volunteers to be subjected to their
stress-inducing tactics. After a bit of squabbling, Charlie
and Saffia volunteered to walk barefoot over broken glass
(it was really sugar glass) and succeeded, becoming housemates
number five and six.
Then, the Special Forces team blindfolded third volunteer
Karly and pretended to ride a scrambler motorbike over her
body (she thought it was real), but the 21-year-old
didn't crack and managed to endure 30 seconds of their mental
torture. She therefore became the seventh housemate proper.
The same day saw Freddie and Sophie face the option of legally
changing their names by deed poll in-order to win full housemate
status. This they duly did, and from now on the eighth and
ninth housemates will be known to Big Bro as 'Halfwit' and
'Dogface' respectively. We're not going to indulge Big Brother
though, so will continue to use their proper names.
On Day 3, Cairon won the tenth and final place by managing
to dip a biscuit in a cup of tea for the longest period without
it falling apart immediately afterwards. The youngest housemate
managed a 25.5 second dip, narrowly beating Siavash's 25.1
That left Angel, Beinazir, Marcus, Siavash, Sophia and Sree
to fight it out in the public vote, and everyone except Beinazir
managed to become bona fide Big Brother 10 housemates.
