McLaren gets the housemates wine-tasting
The living space had been cleared after the painting task, with a long table erected with a host of various wines available for the group to sample.
McLaren presided over events and the housemates excitedly listened to his preliminary instructions.
After being advised by McLaren that "the best thing is to blindfold yourself as your senses get stronger", the group eagerly donned blindfolds and began to sip the wines the hijacker passed around.
McLaren served an array of whites before moving on to red wines, as the housemates began to share their personal preferences.
Emilia soon grew tired of the task, complaining: "I know why I don’t drink now," but wine fan Amy was in her element.
Anthony frequently asked McLaren for further information on how wine is produced and was impressed by what he learned, enthusing: "I feel privileged drinking it."
Calista was distracted by other matters, noting the similarities between her father and the hijacker. "He's so much like my dad it's unreal," explained the classical musician. "It's like having a little taste of daddy in the room."
As the wine-tasting drew to a close, McLaren announced: "That's the end of that, so now you should choose the wine you like and have a glass."
This final indulgence was warmly received by the housemates who swiftly swooped on their preferred beverages.
