Here are the current rankings of the Big Brother 2018 housemates’ Big Coins totals.
Going into the weekend, Cian Carrigan, Zoe Jones and Tomasz Wania were the three richest housemates.
However things all changed on Saturday when housemates took part in a big new twist.
Big Brother announced to the group the ‘Piggy Bank Robbery’: “Housemates, as you know Big Coins give you privileges in the House and the power in the game. You will all take part in a task that may impact your own and other’s Big Coin totals.”
Housemates pulled pig tails to randomly decide their order of play in the game.
In turn, each housemate was called to the task room in private in that order where they found ten piggy banks, one for each of the housemates.
Big Brother instructed each housemate to pick five random coins from a money bag. There were a total of five different types of coins that they could receive: +500, +50, -50, -500, plus a single special secret deal coin.
Once housemates randomly picked their coins, they had to decide which of the other housemates to give them to by placing them inside the Piggy Banks of their chosen contestants. At the end of the task, housemates’ respective Big Coin totals were then adjusted according to the value of the coins placed inside their Piggy Banks.
Isabella Farnese was the one housemate who found the secret deal coin. Big Brother explained that it meant she had to steal the contents of another housemate’s piggy bank. Their Big Coin balance would remain unchanged while hers would be adjust according to the coins in theirs. Isabella was told she could not share news of the special coin she received.
Not long after the task, Big Brother gathered the group for the weekend auction where housemates could spend their Big Coins.
There was only a single, mystery lot up for grabs which Big Brother said was “very valuable” and “powerful”.
However housemates were not told the contents of the box, which is the power to make a killer nomination. The person the winner nominates will be guaranteed to face eviction, unable to be saved in the next game changer.
Each housemate was called to the Diary Room to make a secret bid which they could not discuss with the housemates.
Hussain Ahmed won the auction with a bid of 596 Big Coins – his entire balance.
After all that, here’s how the Big Coin totals look…
