This morning, the housemates woke to find that Titan the
Robot – who had previously been confined to a small
space behind a glass panel in the bathroom – had entered
the Big Brother House.
Indeed, Big Brother has become 'Big Brobot' and begun speaking
in a metallic twang, and Titan is its right-hand man... well,
The massive metallic machine will go against the housemates
over the next couple of days in various challenges. But ever
since he appeared and caught the eye of big Steve yesterday
morning, fans have been wondering if Titan is a real robot,
even though that's something of an oxymoron.
Well, we're not allowed to say if there's someone inside,
but let's just say he's not 100% mechanical and can only 'perform'
for about half-an-hour at a time. Titan is 7' 3" tall,
and if there was a 12 stone man inside, for instance, it would
weigh nearly 20 stone.
But like we say, there might not be anyone inside, and Titan
could be an autonomous machine with bone-crushing strength
and a mind of its own. Ahem.
Anyway, getting back to the 'Man vs Machine' challenges,
if the housemates lose to the intimidating figure, they will
become robots themselves and be made to wear rubbish Blue
Peter style costumes.
In light of his Terminator-style false eye, metal legs and
knowledge of weaponry, we're counting on half man, half couch
potato Steve to show Titan a thing-or-two in the 'whoop-ass'
