Reality TV Nightly Update

Tue 8th Aug / Wed 9th Aug

By
Anna, Nichole and Caroline are in bed gossiping about why Caroline keeps getting voted, bitching about the others, nominations etc. But hard to hear what they are saying as the sound isn't on them.

Interesting note - 3 feeds are on the same shot, and 2 other feeds are on another shot. Strange, as usually they show different views, but maybe this is to cope with extra viewers after the TV programme.

Tom and Craig went to bed at midnight. This is very early for Tom as he is usually last to bed. Nick, Mel and Darren discuss patterns in the nominations in this and other countries. Later...Nick and Mel say they should try to keep the "all sit round the table for dinner" routine, because it's good for them, and the only time they are all actually together. They then talk about 80's movies. So tonight we have the reverse of last night, with regards to the sound. The girls are gossiping and bitching about the voting, the other housemates, and nominations, yet we get the sound of Nick, Mel and Darren talking about movies!

Darren said he could see Caroline was getting ready to explode by the way she had been acting all day, so told Nichola that if Caroline keeps going on at night, asking whether it was the boys who voted for her, and why they keep voting her out, to get Caroline to come and talk to the boys themselves. (Much later, Nichola passed on this message, although she said to talk to the group as a whole in a group meeting. Caroline said she might on Thursday.)

At 12:30 Anna, Caroline and Nichola went to kitchen for a midnight feast. On their way back to bed they stopped at the sofas and talked to Darren and Nick about strategies for the semaphore challenge (Mel was in the bathroom). Caroline says that she didn't realise how bad Craig was with his spelling, and his alphabet. Despite his problems they think Craig will still be able to do the task. Darren didn't realise Mel was dyslexic. Concern was voiced that they have two dyslexics in the house which will make this task harder. Caroline said that so long as they try hard it didn't matter if they lost. Strange, because last week she balled out Craig for not putting much enough effort in, despite Craig doing his allotted miles whilst having a bad knee!

10 minutes later Anna, Caroline and Nichola go back to bed. Mel returned to the sofas and Darren started quizzing her about her dyslexia. He thinks he may have it because he makes mistakes with his spelling, but he can't understand how you can tell whether someone has dyslexia or not. Melanie eventually explains in a way he can understand what dyslexia is. Then Darren, in a moment of honesty or an attempt to impress Mel, says that if he heard someone was Dyslexic he would think they were dumb, but having met Mel, and seeing how clever she is, and having her explain it to him what her dyslexia is like, he now sees that's not the case.

Later Anna, Caz and Nic are still gossiping about voting/nominations. Darren's in the bathroom and Nick and Mel start talking about who they think will be the final five. This was hard to hear as the sound switched back to the girls most of the time who were now talking about other things, but Nick said he felt the final five would be Nick, Mel, Caroline, Anna (not sure about this one as the sound was bad) and Darren. Mel wasn't so forthcoming but said she thought the public wouldn't like Craig. Nick said he told Tom he should go into the diary room and make an appeal to the public that this is his dream and that he wants it to continue. Mel says he is naturally funny but (I missed what she said, I think it was in the house he doesn't dominate but am probably wrong). Nick said Craig is to OTT. Nick then said something about next week, but it wasn't clear. I think he said that he would vote for [somebody] and Craig but once again could be wrong. Mel says she's shocked, first at Andy, now Tom and wonders if everyone's been naive at the whole thing. Nick says he thinks people are being tactical now. Mel wonders how they are getting away with it as they keep being warned. She asks how Nick thinks Craig is voting, and he says he thinks he turned after Caroline's argument, and didn't vote for Nichola as he has a crush on her (Mel gasps in disbelief at this), Nick continues saying he thinks Craig voted against Tom and Andy. Nick says he thinks Craig will come undone though. The sound wasn't clear though so I couldn't here why. Then Nick said these conversations are hard to have as people don't want them to have them! Mel said she thinks Anna will walk. Nick says he has a reiki (sp?) session with her tomorrow so says he will see what she thinks then. He thinks she may be talking to Big Brother about walking out on Friday.

By 1am Darren joins Mel and Nick, continue talking about the nominations, whether anyone will walk, and what might happen with future votes. Only this time, we have the reverse of earlier as the sound is now on Anna, Caroline and Nic, discussing what things they plan to do over the next few days! Nic wants Darren to put a pattern in her hair. Twenty minutes later the girls have settled down to sleep, and Mel, Darren and Nick all go to bed.

At 1:40 Nichola and Caroline get up for a drink/snack as their brains are racing and they can't sleep. Caroline chooses to eat sardines! On the sofas they start chatting and talk about how great Nick is. Caroline says that he's so loving and caring, and hopes he gets something out of this as he took a big risk being there. They briefly wonder why he is so nervous all the time before moving on to another topic. (This is horrible to watch. What are they going to feel like when they find out the truth?)

Caroline talked about her father and his alcoholism but at 2 am the sound was switched to one of the boys microphone and all you could hear was breathing and the odd noise when one of the boys moved in bed! This lasted for an hour.

Caroline and Nichola were still on the sofas having a general chat about their lives, money problems, family, etc. Nic explained (in whispers) that she wants to use the money from BB, and get a job afterward (doing her art), to pay back her Mum (I think) some money she borrowed, and to be able to do stuff for her Mum who isn't too well. After some more chat Caroline realises that Nic has no clothes on other than her home made coat/cardigan thing, and that Nic is showing of her bum and other parts to the world!

They decide to make some more tea and Caroline gets some more sardines, when at 3:30am the sound switches back to the boys room for 35 minutes!!! It's now gone 4 and Nic and Caroline are still chatting away about Nichola's Trapezing and Stilt Walking. Caroline and Nic start moaning about the nominations again and the fact that no one will tell Caroline why she is being voted out all the time. Nichola calls all the men pathetic. Caroline says she knows someone who voted her out as he keeps avoiding her, and Nichola cottons on to who she means. They finally go to bed at 4:30.

Another fairly interesting night then. Will Nick and Mel get punished, and what about the girls, were their conversations enough to constitute breaking the rules too (even though they weren't as blatent as Nick and Mel)? And for the 5th night now we had at least 2 hours of no sound and periods where the sound was on the people who were not gossiping about the nominations/votes - so is this deliberate?

Update

Nichola and Caroline got up again about 5:30am. They apparently almost disturbed a Big Brother engineer because when they got up they heard a sound and later found a camera with loose wires.

They made tea, and started slagging off other people pictures in the portrait gallery. Then Caroline started talking about Nick. She said he tried to subtly point out a person she should vote for, but her mind was already made up about that person. And she was really worried that Nick would get kicked out if he wasn't careful. She said Nick was panicking as he thought he would be voted out. She talked about Darren's arrogance and how he had a go at Nick about asking all his questions. She felt sorry for Nick as she liked his questions and it was Darren who asked questions but would never answer questions.

Nichola talked about her talk with Nick and said it was really good. She said he was a sweetheart. She said she preferred to talk to him one to one as he was too intimidated in a group. Caroline said he was beautiful and a very nice guy.

They start talking about Craig and his reasons for being here, which they can't work out, and then go on to other subjects and the fact that they almost caught the engineer.

Ok, that's it I can't stay on any more for now.
