Day 3 - Vanessa flips-out, 'Memory' task, 2nd Nomination
On day 3, Big Brother woke the group early by switching on the
bedroom lights 'Mum' style! Nomination results followed for which
everyone wore dark 'bins. Not to look cool, but to hide any blubbing
should it occur again.
Big Brother announced that either Jack or Vanessa was destined
to be kicked-out on day 4. Vanessa was convinced that it would be
her. Jack, who'd already made an escape attempt, pleaded (to the
camera) "Don't let me down Britain."
A little while later Jack recounted the tale of his escape bid,
something Vanessa had slept through. Once again, he spiced-up the
story and exaggerated every detail. In reality, he didn't leave
the Big Brother compound.
As the group prepared for their task using the blackboards and
chalk provided, Vanessa completely flipped-out. Like a woman possessed,
she frantically scribbled all over the table top, showing-off just
how many 'big words' she knew. The others were bemused and/or scared
and had there been a straight jacket in the house, Vanessa would
almost certainly have been bundled into it! When Big Brother ordered
her to the diary room, it was told sharply to "F*** OFF"
by the frustrated ex-chat show host!
A lot of blubbing later, Vanessa had snapped out of it and joined
the group with the task, a memory test. The last to take a turn,
success hinged on Vanessa and the now stable housemate didn't let
the group down. They passed with ease.
From 7pm to 9pm, Vanessa wrote an article for a daily newspaper
on a typewriter blagged from Big Brother. It contained the line,
"Nothing in my life before, prepared me for the intense and
emotionally-charged experience that is Big Brother." She had
re-gained some respect from the group by acknowledging that she'd
totally over-reacted earlier that day.
Everyone stayed-up until the early hours. The others took a dip
in the Jacuzzi while Jack got up to his tricks again: when the front
door wouldn't open he continuously rattled the handle, arousing
the guard dogs. Ever mischievous, he then grabbed a nearby didgeridoo,
aimed it at the bottom of the door and blew into it just to annoy
