Big Brother – It Was An Eerie Episode
It was eerie watching Big Brother tonight knowing that Josh was soon to be told of his older brother Toby untimely death.
The last scene when we saw Josh walk towards the Captain’s Quarters where we knew his parents were waiting was particularly uncomfortable knowing he was walking into a life changing and devastating moment.
A thought should also be given to the crew on the show who would have known hours before, as his parents had to fly up from Adelaide. They would have had to work out the logistics on how to sensitively break the news to him, plus keeping the house ticking along as normal. It must have been a tad surreal for them watching an up beat Josh dressed all in read and eating canned food knowing later in the evening he was going to hear some awful news.
In the episode the challenges continued with blue team winning access to the pool and the bathroom.
However the red teams spirits did appear higher than the blue team. Michael was moaning to Stacey how there was no one funny person in his blue team for him to bounce off. Maybe he was worried he was going to be seen as boring by the viewer.
Layla was telling her teamates about how Angie had a crush on Sam, which they agreed with.
However when Layla and Sam spent some time together in Switzerland he appeared to be affectionate. He also was saying he was worried how the segregation was going to affect his chances of getting nominated next week as he has not been able to get to know the red team mates better. Layla also revealed she had been sending messages to him through Stacey, but he said he had not received them.
Is Stacey’s halo starting to slip? Benjamin also started btiching about Stacey as he felt she was not interacting with him in the same way.
However it appears Stacey is a bit flat and she said she was losing her mojo and was not sure why.
Benjamin continued his manipulation of the housemates when he was in Switzerland with Angie. He told her she was an incredible person and that she should not give up. However earlier in the episode he had been bitching madly about her wanting to get in Sam’s bed and making fun of her teeth. Also Zoe must have been peeved Benjamin got to go into Switzerland twice and she had not been in at all.
However she was amusing in Big Brother Confidential when she was having a laugh about her crush on Michael, she was realising it was because she was trapped in a house.
She also revealed she was bit of an over text messager with guys she like, in fact the whole conversation between the housemates on dating/texting issue was amusing.
It was revealed that Zoe’s parents did not know she was entering the Big Brother house which was a bit strange. She got very emotional when she saw a DVD message from them. She received this treat because viewers had voted that she deserved it. Later in the episode the viewer was told to go to Facebook and tell them who deserves a message from the outside world. This week all of them do.
UPDATE: Here is an article in the Daily Telegraph that gives further information on the Big Brother house.
