Day 46 to 54
Extracts from: http://www.behindbigbrother.com/recaps.php
7:34pm: The weekly family dinner is upon us again. Jamie reads the next question, "Are housemates becoming too picky about how food is prepared in the house?" Camilla says that everyone has been having a go at her because she wanted to make some chick pea patties earlier. Camilla tells them all that they were making her life a bit difficult. David takes offence to this, saying he has been looking forward to the patties since he got here. Camilla says she was just making a joke. David goes further saying that he felt that the finger was being pointed at him, but he says he's not going to mention anything more about it. Other housemates feel a bit of tension in the air, and try to calm everyone down with Katie saying that the chef likes preparing meals and to put in your request to him. David continues however. He says he wants a vote on whether the majority of housemates should wait till the others have finished their daily meals before clearing the table. Jamie agrees with this, saying it must just be the way they were raised. He says if the vote doesn't go the way they want, Dave and he can have lunch together everyday. The vote goes ahead, and it's decided that all housemates should try to wait till everyone is finished before clearing the table. As they "clear the table", Katie tells David that he's just too polite.
8:41pm: Jamie and David are in the gym. Jamie is worried as Katie just told him that he is too polite sometimes. Jamie goes onto say that if he bought his girlfriend home for dinner one night he expects the person to be polite at the table. David completely agrees.
In the bedroom Rob and Dave are talking. Rob wonders what he can do, or stop doing to prevent being nominated. Dave thinks that bitching is not always needed, but he should try to minimise it. Rob says thanks. Rob tells him he is beyond his years in this house. Dave knows, but says he would be friends with himself. Dave asks if he would be friends with himself. Rob says that he would be wary.
9.27am - David is leading the aerobics this morning. Some of the moves include "sheer the sheep", "milk the cow" and "lay the egg". Again Ashley is jumping around for amusement, and needs to be brought into line by David. Its not long before the housemates are exhausted, and David leads them through some breathing before wishing Danielle happy 19th birthday.
Later in the night Camilla and David continue their tiff about whether its right to stockpile food. They exchange bickering.
David: If you're sick and tired of polite people, I'm sick and tired of being polite.
Camilla says David was the one who started it. Claire reminds them who is housekeeper tonight (Krystal).
David tells John he's an admirable gentleman about the Danielle issue. After John leaves the living room, David tells Danielle that John is very attracted to her - and he's a gentleman - he chose the best possible path for all of you.
Danielle: With all due respect I'm nobody's lunch... nobody's lunch.
David: Good on you
Danielle: Thanks Dave
(Later Danielle in Punish Room) The blind to the punishment room opens and John says its really harsh. Rob jumps up at the glass and starts yelling "look! they're dentures!". He's obviously drunk. Jamie, David, Camilla and Rob go to the diary room to ask if they can take Danielle's place so she can have her birthday with her friends. BB says that Danielle broke the rules, it wouldn't be fair if they swapped.
11.41pm - Danielle continues. David is annoyed Rob didn't support their cause to take Danielle's place, and lets his thoughts known to Rob in the bedroom. Rob says David has a habit of digging his own grave and he was there to stop it, and he doesn't want David blowing off hot steam at everyone. David says he was making them feel bad that Rob was belittling his cause. Rob says Danielle can look back and have a giggle about it.
Rob: Was what I did wrong?
David: Unequivably, from my point of view, it was wrong.
Rob: Ok we'll just leave it like that then
David: Well I'm going to say to you, please, if I'm going into the diary room and you don.t agree with what.s being said, just don.t agree with it so loudly.
Rob: You can do whatever you want darling, I'll let you be when you go anywhere near the diary room.
David: Thank you.
Rob goes into the bathroom. David is left on his own and looks a bit flustered. Danielle seems not too bothered about her punishment, telling her "darling" dentures to have a bath.
Later in the bedroom Rob talks to Camilla about what happened earlier:
Rob: It's a 19 year old's birthday in the Big Brother house. She's not going up for capital punishment. She'll have a laugh and a giggle about it later. And if Big Brother wants to negotiate he would only be belittling himself and his authority, and if it was outside of the house the law would dictate the same. Respect the fact that rules and regulations have been put into place. Mother Teresa (David) wants to go and make a big heroic thing out of it. I'm not going to sit back and do nothing and then wait till be voted to come in... but when you offer your own reputation for some one else's purely for the good heartedness of it, you'll end up in life being chewed up and spat out.
Camilla says its like David does it out of martyrdom.
Big Brother releases Danielle from the punishment room. She says she was quite proud of her scrubbing job.
Camilla and Rob continue: Camilla used to love David but now she is annoyed by him. Rob says he's being a bitch and David is making him feel bad for it. Rob adds that David is trying to be the Mother Teresa for the gay world, but it.s not going to happen - "he can't save the world". Camilla agrees.
12.53pm - Camilla and Katie are in the bedroom. Katie explains she is worried about nominations - she thinks she will be up this week. "Oh well... nothing you can do". The two of them lie together and Camilla has noticed the house is getting smaller but there are groups forming. Camilla and David have drifted apart and Rob has taken his place. She feels she can't vent with David anymore because he struggles trying to see her point of view. Rob joins the girls on the bed. Camilla thinks there are people in the house she can't live with. Rob jokes she can't live with that girl Katie - well maybe not so jokingly - he says her mess is driving him mad. Katie acknowledges she is quite messy. Rob asks her to dress up a little more in the house. Katie totally agrees she has to nip this in the ass - "no mess, no mess!".
Outside Jamie says he's getting very stressed in the house. Krystal and John don't think so - they see the Big Brother house as a holiday.
Camilla and David are cleaning up in the bathroom. Ashley has been irritating David big time because of his antics which result in breakages. He also thinks Ashley is hypocritical because he complains about childishness but then does it himself. David will definitely talk to both Ashley and Katie about this problem.
3.19pm - The boys are playing cricket in the backyard with makeshift items such as a pillow and ornamental ball. Camilla and David have been told to cut the grass in the backyard with nail clippers as punishment for Camilla helping David with his cleaning task (only he may do it). They comment to each other they are concerned about where the makeshift cricket ball is going to end up. Just as they say this the ball is hit very close to them, and they duck down. Jamie comes over and they tell him they are worried about the ball. David is more confronting - he asks why Jamie keeps on going with his antics which keep breaking things in the house. He has struggled to understand why the boys have no respect for property and just keep going with it. David says it.s something you can get away with when you are a child because you don't understand the value of property, but the housemates are old enough now to comprehend it.
Jamie asks if this is a personal thing - but David replies he's asking Jamie now because Jamie is right in front of him. Jamie says there is a risk factor, and the factor makes it funny. Jamie doesn't see the risk being too great in the Big Brother house.
Ashley goes outside and is upset David didn't take the points off himself. This is because Ashley nominated David for 1 point. Gaelan comes over and tells Ashley that David just wants to leave the house. Ashley is obviously upset, and gets teary-eyed. "Words couldn't express how much gratitude I have for him... I feel like a dog". Ashley goes back inside and thanks David again, but wonders why David did what he did. David says he will find out when he eventually leaves the house; they can't talk about it now.
Katie and Jamie are in the bathroom. Katie says she doesn't really have a problem with being nominated but can't look the other housemates in the eye any more. Jamie doesn't know what to think, he is obviously disappointed about being nominated.
8.41pm - Jamie, Katie and John are in the spa. Jamie is very annoyed and says that Camilla Rob and David are grouping together and are the main cause of them being nominated. John says at this point of the game it.s easy to vote strategically. Katie says she knows exactly her reasons for being nominated - her messiness and she just isn't fitting in at the moment. Katie says there are two sides going on in the house now. Jamie says he's tried to get along with Rob but it just doesn't happen. He says Rob's character is very sneaky and a bitchy person. Jamie knows Rob nominated him because Rob couldn't look at him afterwards.
Jamie says there are three groups - them, the girls and the gays. The girls and the gays have banded together according to Jamie to vote out their group. John was suss about Claire. Big Brother calls all three of them to the diary room. Meanwhile in the sauna Gaelan and Ashley wonder why they are getting in trouble. To pass the time they start air guitaring and banging the water bucket as a drum.
11.59pm - David asks Katie and Jamie about their nominations. They both thought they'd be up. Jamie says Gaelan and Ashley have sorta been off on their own and if there are people in their group people would have picked on it would have been Jamie and Katie. Katie begins talking about how she thinks she was nominated because of her uncleanliness. Big Brother interrupts and fines Katie for discussing possible nomination reasons.
Katie: Drilled, so drilled! This has been a great night.
BB then fines Jamie. He doesn't seem to care. Katie recaps: a nomination, a strike and a $5000 fine each in one night.
Katie: This has been the best night of my life!
Gaelan comments in the bedroom the couple must be taking their nomination pretty harsh and spiteful if these strikes and fines are happening. Claire says it shows the lack of maturity levels.
David: Cheeky little bastards.
Rob and David are having a chat in the bedroom. Rob asks how long David expects to be in the house. David doesn't know. Rob is saying his five weeks in the house feel like forever - every single minute is chewing him up. David knows what he's talking about, and wonders if he'll leave a hole in the house. Rob says he definitely will. Rob thinks everyone would get uptight. David is starting to think he really doesn't want to go this week. Rob says he should have thought of that earlier (when he took 3 points of Ashley). David says it wouldn't have changed anything if he took the points off himself.
Katie and Ashley are playing a game in the living room where Katie has to "catch" a purple dot on Ashley's boardshorts. They scream and laugh.
David says to Rob he would really like some peace and quiet around the house, but doesn't think it.s possible. While the discussion happens Katie and Ashley run around the bathroom. When they are gone David says it would be really good if Katie left the house - people would change. They are all saying she's a cool chick but they think it would be for the better if she left. Katie and Ashley finally finish their game and apologise to the boys lying in bed for the noise.
Meanwhile the nominated couple are in the sauna. Jamie says he wants to spend lots of time with Katie - if one of them is going does he make it less hard and spend less time with her or does he go all out and hang out with her all the time?
David and Camilla are in the sauna talking about the nominated couple. David says he can't understand them at all. Camilla thought she'd have to comfort Katie today, but didn't. She stands up for what she believes - she is against their behaviour. David wonders why people aren't saying what they think. Camilla says it.s because of Katie - she has proven herself unapproachable, and did have a strong social force behind her in the house, in the past. David says he's much older, but Jamie and Katie have each other so they have an advantage in the house. Camilla says she continues to speak her mind not because she's causing confrontation because she speaks what she believes.
6.12pm - The housemates have a jumprope outside with the garden hose. David runs through it without jumping, provoking lots of yelling from the other housemates.
