The Big Brother 2013 housemates have been given their first shopping task, but not everything is as it seems.
For their very first shopping task, Big Brother will be challenging the housemates’ teamwork skills as they work together to fill a giant shopping basket with a stack of oversized groceries.
However this will be made even more difficult by the People’s Puppet, who after a public vote on Monday’s BOTS, is on a sabotage mission to ensure that the housemates fail.
The giant shopping basket is on a pivot and must be balanced by four housemates who will hold a corner each. Beside the shopping basket is a tall pole, featuring a “PASS” mark high above the ground. The housemates’ task is to stack groceries in the basket until they reach the height of this pass marker, and ensure the tower passes this point at the moment the task ends.
Housemates will receive numerous deliveries of groceries throughout the day via a door in the garden. As soon as they hear the doorbell, housemates must collect the delivery and take the items immediately to the shopping basket (also in the garden). Big Brother will announce the final delivery and the task will end exactly one minute from the moment the final doorbell rings. At the end of this final minute, a klaxon will sound, and the tower of groceries must be taller than the “PASS” marker for the housemates to pass the task.
The taller the tower becomes, the more unstable it will be, and the harder it will become for housemates to keep the basket steady. And unbeknownst to the housemates, the People’s Puppet is secretly on a mission to sabotage the task in any way he can, ensuring they will fail this week’s task.
