Following the news that Lauren and Benedict face eviction this week, they were of course not feeling terribly happy today, but they both put on a brave face, which for Benedict turned to a happy face when he became one of three ‘scientists’ for the Lab Rat task.
He was joined in the role by Luke A and Lydia, as all three were deemed to be the most intelligent housemates.
The other 12 have therefore become Lab Rats, and must run in their wheel for food and be subject to experiments, which the scientists must predict the outcome of.
However, of course some people were angry that they weren’t considered intelligent enough to be a scientist, most notably Scott, whose complaints didn’t seem very credible given he’s dressed up like a big rat. Bless.
Here’s a clip of his moaning, and click on ‘Continue reading’ to see what lies in store for them with the task…
The Big Brother Lab is fully operational and while the rats earn cheese based food rations by treading the wheel in the garden, the scientists are tucking into a continental breakfast as they look on from the task room.
First up Deana failed to read the instructions and attempted to walk backwards. Since then the girls have taken the lead with Lauren typically excelling and earning the group two boxes of ham and cheese croissants.
The smug scientists have predicted the outcome of the experiment and are unable to let their new found positions as the group’s smart guys go to their heads.
Lydia said, “This is what they do. They don’t listen to instructions. Don’t get on Deana. Go and sunbath or something. Deana likes to get involved because she likes to be on the camera.”
“I don’t want them standing there watching because that’s too many brains. They might work it out.”
Ever the teacher Benedict was being particularly stern when observing Adam in action.
He said, “Please don’t give them any food while he doesn’t have his hat on Big Brother. He is breaking the rules.
“Look at all the time they are wasting. It doesn’t make any sense.”
Can the rats work out the wheel’s secret? Will the outcome of this experiment be the creation of a new dynamic in the House?
The first the housemates knew about today’s task was when they were woken by a hideous alarm and found that all the food had been removed. Click here to see a clip of that very rude awakening.
As to the task, Luke S was the first to try out the food wheel, but he made something of an epic fail, but Lauren was on hand to show him how it’s done. Click here to see a clip.
What do you reckon are their chances of passing this week? And who are you hoping goes on Friday? Benedict or Lauren?
