Another Empty Frame
It's Day 23 in the Sim Brother house. Yesterday, Trisha received an official warning from Sim Brother for slapping Snoop after finding him in a romantic embrace with Hilary. It also saw the housemates say goodbye to Gordon, who had received 54% of the public vote.
9.08am - Johnny has come to the Diary Room.
Sim Brother (JEJ) - Good morning, Johnny. How are you today?
Johnny - Not so great if you must know, Sim Brother.
SB - Why is that?
Johnny - I know I'll be facing the public vote again some day but I wonder if they did the right thing in voting out Gordon. I only hope he could be hiding in the garden but I don't think that is the case.
SB - Do you think Trisha should have gone instead?
Johnny - Perhaps it would have made things easier for her.She's very hurt at the moment. Don't be hard on her.
SB - Sim Brother notes your request.
Johnny - Thankyou.
SB - What do you feel the general mood of the house is, Johnny?
Johnny - There is a lot of tension and uncertainty in the air. With Hilary and Snoop becoming an item, it has caused a division in the house. With Mia planning to go, I feel that we are losing another old valued member of the house. We don't know what you are going to throw at us next.
My Boyfriend is a Rat
2.06pm - Hilary and Snoop are cuddling in the hottub that has been returned. Trisha is on the seat in the back garden. Mia has just joined her.
Mia - Are you ok, hon?
Trisha - Not really. I thought he would have at least stood by me or waited until I had been evicted before moving on.
Mia - Dirty tricks.
Trisha - It is almost as if I haven't been here. I was worried about being evicted but he gave me no support. He just hung around with Hilary.
Mia - He took the easy option, huh?
Trisha - I'm a chatshow host. I'm supposed to deal with stories like this, not be in the middle of them. "My Boyfriend Is A Rat" would be a ratings grabber.
Mia - Look at it this way. Who would be getting booed on a show like that?
Trisha - The boyfriend.
Mia - That's it. The girlfriend would be getting the awwws and the sympathy. You should hang around with the other guys. I don't think Harry & Johnny are too pleased about what has happened either.
Trisha - That makes it sound like you're not staying.
Mia - I'm not. I'm leaving.
Trisha - But why? I thought you liked it here.
Mia - I do, but I've made my point and I miss my family. My show title would be "Sporting Spokesperson or Devoted Mother". I told Sim Brother a few days ago that I'd wait until after the task is over. I'm leaving this afternoon.
Time to Go
3.19pm - Mia has gone around the housemates and said her final goodbyes hugging everyone as she left. She has come into the Diary Room.
Sim Brother (JEJ) - Hello, Mia.
Mia - Hello, sim Brother. I'm ready to go now.
SB - This is the last opportunity you have to change your mind.
Mia - My mind is made up. If I phoned my friends and asked the audience or even took 50-50, the answer would still be the same.
SB - As you wish. The back door is now open. It has been good knowing you.
Mia - Likewise ... and thankyou.
To Absent Friends
8.41pm - Hilary & Snoop are now swimming in the pool. Harry, Johnny and Trisha are in the lounge. They are talking about Gordon and Mia.
Harry - I can't believe it. A week ago, there were still eight of us here and now we've suddenly gone down to five.
Johnny - It was bad enough losing Gordon last night. Losing Mia this afternoon has made it harder. I can't believe it.
Trisha - She has her reasons, guys. I think they are good reasons too.
Johnny - I just wish she'd waited a bit longer.
Trisha - I wonder if they'll be bringing in someone to replace her.
Harry - Some new blood might help perk us up.
Johnny - Well, absent friends wherever you now are, we miss you.
Tomorrow, the housemates have a gruelling contest and we get to hear what Mia had to say about Will and on Monday, a replacement housemate will be coming to the house.
