Day 6 - Assault course task, Anthea leaves the
After 6 days in the house, the remaining contestants had got into
morning routines: Jack baked bread, the girls did hair and
make-up and Keith slept!
Having blown most of their budget on booze, they realised were
running low on more important stuff. Earlier, Anthea had been scoring
Brownie points by cleaning out the chicken coop without being asked.
However, Big Brother requested that the group cleaned the glass
around the house in return for some garlic and other bits and pieces.
Jack, who humorously squirted himself in the face with the window
cleaning fluid, went to see Big Brother: "Yes, garlics
about 49p isnt it cheap labour in this house!" came
Jacks sarcastic retort.
Later, they needed Olive Oil and Keith offered to train naked for
a while in return for some. Anthea put this proposal to (the female)
Big Brother who went for the idea and agreed! However, the modest
Keith backed-out, saying he was, "Not a big lad" and didnt
want to compromise his marriage by jiggling about in the buff.
At nearly 3pm, recovering from their a fry-up lunch, the latest
task had been set a physical one; just what they needed after
that meal! It was the monkey bars/assault course of series-1. The
contestants had 7 minutes to complete the course and although initially
sceptical of their success, gambled half their rations. Donning
cycle helmets the group completed the task in 3 minutes, well ahead
of their allowed time. This gained them £7.50 winnings; what
would they spend it on? Surprise, 2 bottles of cider and
a can of Guinness!
In the evening, Anthea cooked scones and a pasta meal. During the
meal they discussed the infamous Cadbury Snowflake Wedding
incident. It was established that Anthea was kind of duped into
having the photo taken with the choccy bar and received no cash
from Cadburys for the subsequent promotion.
Just before 10pm, the result of the public eviction vote was announced.
It was Anthea. Jack, sat waiting in his obligatory hat and coat,
looked gutted again. Anthea sympathised and gave him her share of
cider. Following big hugs from Claire and Keith and a pre-arranged
not really bothered handshake from Jack, Anthea left
the house dressed in red leather strides.
Met by her husband, she described her experience as an unbelievable
adventure and said shed made friends that shed
definitely keep in touch with. She predicted that Jack would win.
In the meantime, Jack spotted his wife and made a dash towards her.
They met on the walkway for a big emotional hug, which made Claires
eyes well up.
Back in the house, Jack discussed how you learn a lot about
yourself when you are incarcerated and have have-to adhere to rules.
He talked about Vanessas vulnerability and later said that
she would have been an ambulance case had she stayed.
A relatively early night, everyone was in bed by around 1am. Claire
joined the boys in their room and in discussing what to say to the
media upon leaving, Jack said to just say what they saw happened
and no more "Unless they offer you money" he added!
