This Week's Challenge
"This is Sim Brother. This is the first of the Individual
Award Weeks where you will be competing against each other. In
the garden, you will find two chess sets. Over the next few days,
you will play against each other in a tournament. The winner will
receive Â§2,000 to spend on luxury items for himself and
optionally one friend. You can spend today practicing, but the
tournament begins tomorrow"
Struggling with Nomination
Anna's mind was not on the Chess Championship. She was upset
about being nominated and did not know what to do next. Davina
saw her and brought her into the Den for a private "girlie chat"
Anna - "I'm frightened, Davina.
If I am evicted, I have failed
Davina - "C'mon, love. You've done well to get here.
There are a lot of celebs that didn't get in. Michael Douglas and
Sandra Bullock were on the shortlist. They didn't make it. Have
you heard of Darius Denesh?
Anna - "N-no.
Davina - "It's a British thing. He was on PopStars and
PopIdol but he didn't even get onto the shortlist here. You got
through the shortlist and made the final eight. Anyway, who says
the public will vote you out? I'm sure they love you.
Anna - "Well, there are people here who don't love me.
Otherwise, they wouldn't have nominated me to leave.
Davina - "They have to nominate someone. It could be
because they don't know you well enough. You carry on being the
lovely person you are, convince the others that you are serious
about being here and I am sure the viewers will vote for someone
else to leave.
MNM had a different approach about being nominated.
MNM - "Which of you ***** nominated
Tom - "I'm not saying
Jerry - "Neither am I
Sim Brother - "Could MNM please come to the Diary Room?
MNM - "**** off!
Sim Brother - "... NOW!
MNM - "Yeah, ok
Sim Brother - "Sim Brother must remind you discussing
nominations is against the rules. This includes asking people
about who they voted for. Any further infringement will mean
instant expulsion from the house
In the Alcove, Anne and Jennifer had got down to practicing chess.
Anne was surprisingly quiet and Jennifer noticed.
Jennifer - "Annie, are you OK?
Anne - "Of course, Jen. Why shouldn't I be?
Jennifer - "I thought you might be worried about being
Anne - "Having my name up first time around does remind me
of TWL and I expected I might be
Jennifer - "What are you going to do?
Anne - "It's out of my hands now. I'd rather stay, but if
the people say I go, then that's up to them
Anna had paid attention to what Davina had said. If she had to
leave, she wanted to be on friendly terms with as many of the
housemates as possible and she started with having a conversation
with Tony, who told her about when he visited "Sealife"
A Surprise Confession
||Over the Garden Dinner Table, Anna made a confession that even stunned MNM - "I hate tennis".
Davina asked her - "What other sport would you want to do?"
Anna - "I didn't want to do sports. I wanted to be a popstar
or a movie star"
MNM - "Er ... what sort of movies?"
Anna - "Action films, I think, or romances"
MNM - "I'd certainly go and see them"
The End of The Affair?
That evening, Davina had a bath and thought a few things over.
She shared her thoughts with MNM - "I've been a fool. Tom
has been using me. The maddening thing is that I am still crazy
MNM - "So go and sort things out with him
Davina took his advice and found Tom in
the lounge. He told her about how he likes women and cannot
really make his mind up. While she was with Tom, he was a giving
her a hug as Jennifer came in from the garden and saw them.
She stormed over and gave Davina a slap - "He's back with me
Tom - "Girls, I'm not with either of you. I think you are
both great fun to be with. It is flattering to have you both
fighting over but because of you doing this, I AM FINISHED WITH
Preparing for the Big Event
Anne has spent most of the day
practicing on the chess tables. She has taken the challenge
seriously and wants to win. Even if she gets evicted on Friday,
she will have the pride that she has gone out with a victory of
sorts. She is the last one to go to bed. She made herself a mug
of coffee and went to bed relaxed and looking forward to the
Tournament beginning tomorrow.
Tomorrow will start to show who is taking the challenge seriously
and whether any of them is a Grandmaster and does not even know
