The Big Brother housemates have failed their latest shopping task, meaning a week on a basic shopping budget.
Yesterday saw the start of a four day house ‘divide’, The White Room. The four housemates with the fewest nominations (Conor, Luke S, Sara and Scott) this week, had one minute to decide amongst themselves which three housemates would be sent to The White Room to play for a money can’t buy prize.
Conor, Luke S and Sara opted to enter the white room, where they were told they would be playing some games.
The White Room housemates were unaware that housemates in the Main House would then have to play exactly the same tasks and beat the White Room’s results in order to win the shopping budget.
Game one: Space Race
This was a physical game in which one Housemate wore a suit with elasticated bungees that connect their joints making it very difficult to move and stretch. The aim was to fill a tube up with as much milk as possible but the clock is ticking. The Housemates were told that the quicker they fill up the tube, the greater their reward will be.
Game Two: Hammer Slammer
A grey matt outlined the game area that a Housemate will be standing in to play ‘Hammer Slammer’.
36 white cups were stuck upside down onto a raised table. Inside 10 of these cups were balls filled with blue paint. The Housemates knew where these are as they had seen a graphic on the plasma screen that showed them which cups the paint balls are hiding in. However, they only saw this for 30 seconds before the screen disappeared. This was a memory game.
The Housemates had 1 minute to hit 26 of the cups, leaving 10 standing. Housemates were not allowed to confer. If they hit any of the cups containing the blue paint they incurred a fail. Housemates were told that their efforts will be considered at the end of the task.
The competitive White Room housemates beat the main house, meaning the housemates were given a basic shopping budget this week.
But it's not all over for the White Room, the trio will remain inside until Friday, competing for a ticket to the final.
