I wonder if this was 'product placement' by Alex on behalf of N-Dubz? Like, I recall, a HM recently talking about skincare in this programme sponsored by Freederm. Well worth a closer look.


I hadn't noticed the Freederm thing, but now that you mention product placement, those chicken suits tonight were very like the logo on a certain brand of stock cube.

----------------------

Oh, Chickie chickie chickie chickie
Lay a little egg for me
I haven't had one since breakfast
And now it's half past three...



It was difficut to remember that the HMs are actually adults as they hung their heads in shame when BB lectured and punished them over last night's damage to fixtures and fittings. Their infantilisation and exploitation continued with unnecessary nude shots - not that Jay seemed to mind.

Faye and Heaven rescued a moth and tried to feed it soup to revive it. I'm not sure that it actually needed rescuing; it certainly didn't care for the soup. But then a dead person's soul wouldn't, would it?

Aaron had to wear the clothes of others today as his suitcase had been dumped in the pool by, I think, Mark. He was also concerned about the shocked state of his little boy bits after a freezing shower in punishment cold water. Alas, BB was of no help in either sad case.

Rapprochements are being made in the far corners of the house. Faye is still in pursuit of Aaron, tryng to establish if he cares for her at all, or is his eye on Louise, or Tom... He teased her gently, promising his attention for this day although he could not guarantee it tomorrow. To others he assumed the role of romantic aspirant for the hand of Fair Louise. Rebeckah has confided in Anton that she would never, ever ever hurt Aden, and wasn't it lucky he fell for someone like her instead of sme other less kindly lady?
('Ah, would some gift the giftie gie us,
Tae see oorsells as ithers see us'
Harry and Heaven have also reached a greater understanding of one another, united in their dislike of Rebeckah who has been undermining both of them. I sniff nominations coming someone's way!

Anton alone is failing to reach out to people. The others played a daft prank on him and his promise to avenge himself with another prank actually sounded quite threatening. He is a dark and humourless soul and still gives me the creeps. Plus he snores like a Sunday afternoon lawnmower.

Heaven appears flakier by the moment. She maintains that films like Star Wars and Silver Surfer are not fiction, but hidden accounts of the true history of the universe and the making of Nribu, where devils and the tall people come from. Well, she makes a refreshing change from genitalia and sex. Harry and Mark sent her up a bit with their grave accounts of a hippo reading newspapers and a cat being trained by bells. I don't think she quite followed their drift.

The task today was to dress as chickens and roost in chicken runs, whilst being fed popcorn every half hour. It was a gruelling marathon which lasted nearly 8 hours. HMs groaned, threw up, got indigestion and cramp, and one by one flew the coop until only Harry and Heaven were left. And oh, that graceless creature Heaven cheated, pretending to throw up so that she did not have to eat any more popcorn! But no matter, Harry emerged the winner and has gained immunity from nomination this week, which I'm glad of although I'm not sure why.

I earlier had my own product placements:

Marion's portrait of Rebeckah is, having thought about it, spot on. "Well worth a distant look", to keep one's own face clean and soul pure-white. A single too close a look is enough to sully us crowding-in, peer-pressure students of human nature.

Not too impressed with most of the others but - unlike Marion? - I think highly of Aaron and Louise as quasi-seasoned wisdom-holders. "Well worth a closer look."
But spot prize for Anton quoting George Orwell


Latest episode is tempting fate by symbolically coming closer to an Avian Influenza theme, with human people in close intimacy with chicken body-puppets.

I depend, meanwhile, on Marion for low-downs on the relationships between various HMs. Thanks. :)

There Were Vibes and Then There Were Vibes...

All sorts going on tonight. Starvation set in and the water was freezing. So were attitudes to Rebeckah. Harry disclosed his conversation with Heaven to Aaron, who was quick to agree that Rebeckah is not trustworthy. Oddly enough, young Tom also agreed, and later in the evening very bravely challenged Rebeckah's world view. To her face. Without a tremor of fear. His strength of character took me by surprise.

Meanwhile, Rebeckah was in the DR trashing both Aaron and Heaven (I expect it will be young Tom's turn tomrrow) for being un-genuine gameplayers, something she would never be. But of course her real problem with both Heaven and Aaron is that they do not like her.

Heaven took it upon herself to advise Aden to avoid the negative energies (Rebeckah's) of others. It was good advice, but the lovesick fool rushed off to establish his loyalty credentials and told Rebeckah while begging her not to raise the matter with Heaven.
Fool! Rebeckah has a hair trigger temper and lives to find a place at the centre of a drama. Heaven removed Rebeckah from her bed and sparked a massive row which involved much swearing and abuse from Rebeckah and an explosion into the living room to confront Heaven. She was near foaming at the mouth as she issued her challenge. Heaven held her own and Rebeckah looked like exactly what she is.
Dear little Aden sloped off for a smoke.
Mark sipped out to make some tea.
Rebeckah tried to draw little Tom, her ally, into the fray but he ticked her off for calling Heaven a bully and withstood her onslaught. Good for him. Just for a moment, defeat appeared in Rebeckah's eyes. Her sway is over, I think. Perhaps it was the beginning of the end when she was so unpleasant to Harry at Faye's eviction.

On a pleasanter note - Aaron and Faye's date. There was a touch of the old BB magic about this event. Faye won the prize of a romantic dinner for two with the man of her choice and chose Aaron. I thought the whole thing might misfire because when Aaron was told of the prize in the DR, he did not even look at Faye. Jay looked gutted but whether that was because he was missing out on Faye or the chicken dinner I'm not sure.
Whatever, the entire house got involved in getting the two of them ready for their evening out. Men lent Aaron clothes and gelled him up and doled out advice; women pampered and patted and oiled Faye. Bless them all, they were really excited. So was I. How silly! What is it about getting ready for a date that thrills us all? But there it is - BB magic.
The chicken dinner reminded me of the feeding frenzy in Tom Jones- remember the scene where they tear the chiken apart and then one another's clothes?
Well, they didn;t go quite that far - both turned out to be surprisingly shy. Faye worked hard and wrung some compliments out of Aaron; he worked hard at getting her up for a slow dance.
I have decided that I rather like Faye's face - grave and full of mischief at the same time. She has quieter charms than the others, but that is a face to remember.

But alas, when the date was over, Faye confided that perhaps Aaron isn't her type after all. I blame it all on that tartan shirt Aden lent him.

Indeed. Also, your comparison of the chicken dinner date with a scene from the film 'Tom Jones' (Albert Finney) was spot on. As is your growing assessment (mine, too) of Faye Palmer (Darcy Steele). A lovely, characterful girl.

The Rebeckah /Heaven voodoo axis is however now central to current machinations (partially concerning the battle of moral territory in Aden) - and, yes, Tom surprisingly shone out as a new beacon of rightness in this increasingly insidious context.

Meanwhile, people like Anton, Maisy, Alex etc have taken a backseat in the camera's tendentious excerpting, although I rather enjoyed Jay's exagerrated pleas for food (taking a cold shower for 15 hours or walking around nude for 3 days). It was the chicken dinner, Marion, that he resented missing rather than the date with Faye.

Yesterday's sickness *as* chickens as well as being part of the Bird Flu subtext was a poetic prelude to the date...?

I fear you are right about, Jay and the chicken dinner, Des. AS for his pleas for food, all he had to do was offer to keep his clothes on and they'd have fed him banquets. Well, I would have.

A Plague On Both Your Houses

The house still trembled in the aftershock of last night's row. Heaven tried to make it up with Rebeckah and sort things out, but made a mistake immediately when she said that the other HMs were upset because they like them 'both' Rebeckah's little face crumpled. She did not care for that word 'both'. In her view, there is only room for liking one and that one isn't Heaven. She's quite the narcissist, isn't she?

However, the girls fell to talking about the stolen chocolate. Rebeckah denied everything. She even asked Jay to confirm that she had not told him that Heaven was the thief. Jay knew better but decided discretion was the better part of valour and was afflicted by temporary amnesia. That amnesia disappeared when Rebeckah actually denied to him what she had said to him. Rebeckah believes her own lies implicitly. But there is some justice in the world - he later nominated Rebeckah on the grounds she's a two faced liar.

She used her miserable track record with men to justify to Heaven the way she feels about sweet, sweet Aden and to explain that he isn't her pet poodle. This was rather a painful scene - insincerity leaked from Rebeckah like radiation while it seemed to me that Heaven showed signs of some compassion for the minx and was genuinely trying to understand her. There was much hugging and making up - then Rebeckah nominated Heaven because the rows had all been over nothing, and Jay because he caused it all anyway. Go figure. But I was left with the impression of a noble and dignified naivete in Heaven who did not nominate Rebeckah.

I rather admired Tom's sterling defence of Heaven - he is quietly working the house, insisting that Heaven has not deserved the treatment she has received - that boy is a lot sharper than he looks. But it was all to no avail - the House clearly took the line of 'a plague on both your houses' and so Heaven and Rebeckah are both up for eviction.

Another painful scene unfolded in the DR when Aden came to Rebeckah's defence. There was black irony in his 'we understand each other' and their mutual history of bad relationships. I imagine her history is rather richer than his. But then I had the feeling that we viewers are being manipulated again. Is he really that naive? Could anyone be that naive? I recall he is a psychologist - is he setting himself up for the pity vote, playing the ingenu, trying to bring the Mummy out in the Great British public?

Faye is trying to get Aaron to unbutton a bit and take a walk on the Wild Side by talking dirty. She failed. She also quizzed him about his sexuality. Gay? Bi? Straight? Don't know? She confessed to kissing her girlfriends to try and bring him out of himself, but he denied that he and his mates got up to stuff like that. She thinks that exploring his sexuality will be a way of going on a journey (oh, God, not another BB joureny!), but Aaron said her;d just take a bus. Which made me laugh.
Harry also raised a smile when he was discussing noms with Heaven and she told him she hadn't nommed Rebeckah. 'I nominated her twice,' he said with such heartfelt feeling that it was comical.

So. Who goes? I'm hoping Rebeckah. She is poisoning the house. Heaven has been made very uncomfortable by that little madam - I;d like to see Heaven without that pressure.

Why did Tom nominate out of alphabetical order? Surely, BB didn't retrocausally alter the order so that Rebeckah was the climax? Rebeckah whom BB would probably want to keep in as a maverick catalyst?

Faye's enticement to Aaron to dirty-talk dirtied her a bit in my eyes; but nobody in the world these days is openly undirty, even if someone looks undirty. It's as if even the Freedom tube itself is corrupted with humanity then smeared over innocence as well as over skin.

The voodoo-axis is about to break whatever happens on Friday. At least we shall then regain a closer look at Maisy, Mark et al.
One blended end of the Heaven/Hell seesaw being pent back up into the endless tube of riotous reality outside.

Meanwhile, within the conscience (or gestalt) of the game itself, I agree with Marion - especially about Heaven staying and Rebeckah going.

Do they vote in alphabetical order? You know, I never noticed that!. As to Rebeckah -I still think BB stitched her up with the flashbacks - not but what she deserved it although I feel I;m being guided.

Faye's enticement to Aaron to dirty-talk dirtied her a bit in my eyes; but nobody in the world these days is openly undirty, even if someone looks undirty.

I didn't much like that either. How odd that being cleancut should have to be a dirty secret and a social solecism. I'm trying to see that scene as a sort of [i]Some L:ike It Hot scenario- you know, when Marilyn sets out to seduce the buttoned up, repressed bespectacled millionaire, but Curtis is only pretending and isn't buttoned up at all... But neither Aaron nor Faye has the witt or the charm! It would serve Faye right if Aaron took her at her word!Watch her turn tail and run![/i]

It was interesting that Maisie pucked up a few nominations last night. We need to see more of her to know what's going on in there.

Marion !!! How many years have we been watching BB 'together'? They have always nominated in alphabetical order. That's why Aaron currentlys starts. And Ziggy always came last.

Last night - for the first time in living memory - it went awry. Tom came before Rebeckah. If that was explained, I missed the explanation.

Alex - a racial miscegenation of Heaven (Heaven Africa) and Hell (Rebeckah Vaughn) by dint of a stained-skin freederm to say 'yes'!
For all philosophers finding it well worth a closer look, i.e. at God's gift of free will rather than of fixed pre-destination...

Oh, I misunderstood! I thought you meant that the HMs nominated alphabetically when they went into the DR! But of course they don't - that's why I hadn't noticed.
Now you've got me wondering why Tom went before Rebeckah!

Hulk Barbie

The shopping budget task is to last two days and so it's yes yes yes to everything for the foreseeable future.
Mark had to say yes to stripping off and wearing a fig leaf. Doubtless he feels overdressed, but he'll suffer it for the sake of pizza and steak.

Maisie had to say yes to a shock suit and was immediately power surged off the DR chair. Unbeknownst to her, Anton was appointed to apply the shocks which he did with gusto - it was like a scene from the Milgram Experiment. He's an unpleasant young man - I have said so all along. Maisie was allowed revenge, however, when he had to wear a shock suit in his turn. His was bright orange - he looked like one of those cartons of Kia-Ora you used to get at Saturday matinees in the local flea-pit. I thought Maisie was disappointingly restrained.

Rebeckah was called to the DR - do it for the team, Jay said. 'What? The team that nominated me?' she snapped. There's always an edge to Rebeckah.
She had to choose a housemate to lose a suitcase and possessions. Since Mark has to wear his fig leaf for two days, he was the sensible choice; and since Rebeckah is Rebeckah, she took him aside and told him he'd been selected for eviction. His only reaction was to imply that was fine but his voice rose higher and higher in pitch under the stress of it all and he practically fell into her arms when she relented and told the truth. That's Rebeckah - a smiling slap and a smiling hug.

Aaron and Louise had to say yes to a one night stand which turned out to be standing back to back in the garden for an unspecified time period. Aaron didn't waste time just standing, but took the opportunity to whisper in Louise's ear that Anton is truly horrid, especially in the way he talks about women, bit like Russell Brand, you know. Keep working the house, Aaron!

Harry was the one refuser of a task. He did claim when he entered the house that he would like to be a gay icon - BB obliged him with an opportunity: an underwear photoshoot for a gay magazine. No. Nein. Niet. C'est ne pas possible! He will not sacrifice his reputation for all the steak and chips to be got in the luxury budget! I thought that was a bit curmudgeonly since the whole country has been looking at him in shorts, in the shower, in bed for a fortnight. But he was an immoveable object.

I have saved the best task till last. You know whose it was, Des - the brilliant Alex. Geordie girls like their fake tans, BB said - would she like one?
She likes to be a sun-kissed golden goddess, she said, and accepted.
Then they asked her again. And again. And again. Four times Alex gamely went through the spraying until she looked like she'd been gone over with mahogany varnish. As the evening went on, she got darker and darker as the tan sank into her flesh. She will be black as soot tomorrow. She complains that her armpits are green - Hulk Barbie she called herself. :lol: :lol: I hope one of the girls takes her aside and tells her to get rid of the pale lipstick she usually wears - doesn't match the mahogany.

There were interesting little snippets going on in the background to all this. BB ended the cold water punishment but immediately reinstated it as punishment for more nomination talk after playing the suspect conversation back. It was the one where Heaven denied nominating Rebeckah and Harry exclaimed that he'd nominated her twice! Rebeckah's gaze was murderous but Harry laughed it off - he really doesn't give a toss.
Rebeckah fled to the bedroom and the comfort of Aden's arms but his overenthusiastic response clearly irritated her. Her lip curled as she drew back ; Stop kissing my face!
I think his days are numbered anyway. She took Tom into the toilet to tan him (why she is so fond of locking herself in the toilet with men I cannot imagine) and confided she only goes with Aden to stave off loneliness, that it's Mark she actually fancies. No doubt Tom will relay that to Mark. She also managed to make Aden jealous by calling through the door that Tom was naked and that Aden could not come in. Aden of course went in and mauled Rebeckah to establish possession. Hasn't he noticed that Tom probably isn't interested in girls at all? Anyway, when Aden left, Rebeckah reverted to a favourite topic and said Aden had just pissed all over her in public. I think this girl needs to see someone.

Aaron saved a cupcake for himself in the fridge and Maisie took a little bite of it in the belief that he does not care for cake. Her most humble apologies could not comfort him, not her most winning ways. He brushed and brushed at hs teeth until she gave up and went away. Then he sulked like Achilles in his tent. Oh, Aaron - that was disappointing.

Disappointing also was Heaven's Love-In session. They were meant to reach out to one another, grow in understanding, and bond. Several HMs fled the session to go outside and stand in the rain - even Mark in only his fig leaf. Only Faye had the staying power to stick it out with Heaven and mend fences although she did look as if she was longing to be out in the shower (not Rebeckah's kind of shower).

I wonder what yes tasks remain to be accepted?

Glad to clear up misunderstandings about the natural course of reality in reality shows! :)
And your latest report, Marion, is a tour de force. How can mere mortals match up...?
All true. All seminal to a greater understanding of mass culture as well as the high culture that lurks within it.
As well as just the god-honest rubbing together of human souls in the game of truth and fiction - and the game of celebrity-hunting-from-within-and-back-within modern people. Bravo!

Relates to the earlier 'Ka' as does the 'predestination / free will' dichotomy in my previous post about archetypal miscegenation.
(I remember those 'kia-ora' adverts that came on just before Pathe News and Pearl & Dean.)

Oh, my! Peaerl and Dean, Kia-ora and chocolate raisins! Blissful Saturday matinees!

It is odd how often Ka comes up in this series.
When you get right down to it, Harry is the only one who shapes his own. He accepts or rejects BB as it pleases him. The rest seem to bring things down on their own head. Hmmm...

Tears Before Bedtime

The 'Yes' task to win the luxury food budget continued.
Tom said 'yes' to a haircut, but no (about 8 times) to a short back and sides, which a pity since getting rid of some of the mop improved his appearance in a way which befitted the straight talking hero of the house.

Faye said yes to a tattoo, even if permanent (which showed dedication) but no when she saw how big it would be.

Heaven said yes to a bungee jump but screamed so much and begged so hard for positive vibrations that i nearly changed my mind about voting to save her. Then BB showed the crane she had to leap from. EEk! It was horrifically high and I felt vertigo coming on.
'Come back alive!' cried Mark. 'We don't have to have chicken!'
The look Jay gave him then...shudder!
And she jumped. This was the bravest thing ever seen on BB. She even laughed as she plunged earthwards! It certainly beat Rebeckah daringly offering to remove her knickers (see below - not Rebeckah's below, the blog's below).
Respect, Heaven. That jump showed true valour! The HMs' applause was genuine and heartfelt (except for Rebeckah who, as always, does not like someone else being the centre of attention. Jay had to DRAG her over to hug Heaven.)

Aden said yes to not being with Rebeckah all day, a task the Hms soon cottoned on to. Aaron was quick to take advantage by sitting and massaging Rebeckah's feet, all the while staring at Aden across the living room! Oh, the cad! he knows Aden adores Rebeckah and also that he has a foot fetish! A double blow to the young man's longings! Rebeckah also stared pointedly at Aden, as she positively purred over the attention being lavished on her and her tootsies. She had already offered to remove her knickers for Aden if he would only say yes and fail the task. A stalwart, he refused. The outcome might well have been different if she had offered him her bare feet.
This whole incident triggered dark mutterings from Aden. She enjoyed making him jealous, he said, and mumbled even more darkly. He was Othello like in the stygian gloom that fell over him and plunged him into the blackest pit of hell. Still he loudly maintained that he wasn't letting it get to him.

Think'st thou I'd make a life of jealousy,
To follow still the changes of the moon
With fresh suspicions?


Aden may lack the poetry of Othello, but he shared the tortured man's agonies. If only he hadn't turned the tragedy into a comedy by confiding his feelings to a carton of Kia-Ora!

Since the public is currently voting to save, Rebeckah engineered much discussion about her and Aden. I enjoyed the conversation in the bathroom with Harry, Aaron, and Mark when she praised the demented boy and tried to reveal the true pure nature of her love for him. The palpable cynicism of the three wise men seemed to pass her by as she trilled the kind of feelings she last expereinced when she was about 12. Once she had gone, the three kings were understanding - they felt sorry for her, they agreed, as she is trapped in a situation with Aden from which she cannot easily extricate herself; they felt sorry for Aden too - for unspecified reasons. We understand, guys, we understand.

The HMs passed their BB challenge and won the luxury budget and the reward of a boozy party. Oh, dear, oh dear - in this young house, few are able to hold their drink. BB is well aware of this and was rewarded with a number of interesting dramas.
First up were Aden and Maisie. Aden asked Maisie's permission to say something personal. Drunk, she agreed. He pointed out that there was a spot on her face. Maisie took this to heart and decided to be very offended. Aden went after her when she stalked off, apologising frantically. She launched into a touching explanation of her insecurities and quite stole the show until he trumped her personal drama with his own.
He wept. He missed his family, he cried. He was tired of listening to everyone's problems when no one thought to ask about his. (And he wants to be a psychologist?) He was tired of the suspicions of his relationship with Rebeckah. He wept some more because no one knows or cares how he suffers. 'I'm a nineteen year old boy!' he screamed in despair and declared his love for Rebeckah.
Maisie was taken aback by it all and quite forgot her spot. So something good came out of it all.

Faye and Tom also quarrelled. Tom's belongings had been dumped on his bed, and Faye took the brunt of the blame. he swore at her and was abusive which upset her greatly. (Well, it was rather uncalled for). Heaven came to comfort and counsel. Rebeckah, still smarting from Heaven's earlier success, intervened, reminding Heaven of the 'strange situation' when Heaven had objected to her being on her bed. Faye and Heaven largely ignored her. This annoyed Rebeckah so she just kept repeating 'strange situation' and was ignored some more.
Heaven later came to her and gave her a right ticking off along the lines of ' not the time or place' to revist that old quarrel. Again, Rebeckah fell back on repetition 'that's your opinion' - the weakest of all arguments except for the one that goes 'I am better qualified than you to know what to do here' - in Rebeckah's case that meant the grand statement 'I am a trained counsellor'. What kind of counselling she could give anyone boggles the mind, but no matter - Heaven carried the day in this argument.

Aden was a happy young Othello by bedtime. He was allowed to lie on his lady's bed and declare his love for her. And to his delight she responded in kind and declared hers for him. She also confided that she doesn't want to go tomorrow night. We know, Rebeckah. Her love, of course, did not mean that he could stay in her bed and he was soon banished to the othe side of the room where he was last heard bleating into the darkness 'I love you.' Much to Anton's disgust.
