She had been locked in a task room overnight where BB played in “subliminal” messages, but for what I hear you cry?
Well, you’ll find out shortly, but in the meantime, here’s a clip of what Caroline put up with all night…
Elsewhere, Lydia is celebrating her birthday today, but there hasn’t been any news as to whether BB will give all the housemates time out from the task for a party later or not…
So, with everyone awake and raring to go, at 11.50am, BB revealed a maze in the garden, and Becky was the first lab rat to be placed inside it with a view to finding her own way out.
Next in was Caroline, who, after just 18 minutes in also caved in and said she couldn’t stand being in the maze any longer.
When she came out, she told the others that it’s impossible to get out, and indeed, she’s right, but of course the housemates don’t know that.
Here’s the info about the maze, and the reason why Caroline was subjected to a night of subliminal messages…
With the aid of the scientists, Big Brother has been dishing out more psychological experiments to the unwitting test subjects. Under fire this afternoon was the usual jovial Becky, whose friendly demeanour was successfully quashed after her stint in the ‘impossible maze’.
Becky was placed in a giant maze in the garden and told to crawl her way to the cheese, on the pretence that she was in a race against another housemate and the quickest time would win a prize.
The experiment, in fact, was testing how long it would take for her to give up and shout the buzz word “I camembert it” – Have you had enough of the cheese based puns yet? We’re sure there are more to come…
Least to say, Becky quickly got frustrated with not being able to finish the seemingly easy looking task, calling it a “stupid, stupid game”.
Nor did it help that Lydia was prompted to only reply to her wails with the vexing line “please continue towards the cheese”. So, it wasn’t a surprise when she gave up, saying “what a waste of my life, spending time in that maze”.
The real reason for the experiment was to find out if a rat who has had a night of confidence conditioning (a.k.a Caroline) would take longer to quit than an ordinary rat. The rat in question, Caroline, was tested next and showed similarly poor efforts (even after Big Brother’s attempts to subliminally prime her to be super duper confident)…
However, the result of the experiment came down to who the scientists thought would last the longest between the ordinary rat (Becky) or the conditioned rat (Caroline).
The trio picked Caroline to win, which was… *drum roll* Incorrect. Becky gave up at 23 minutes and 20 seconds and Caroline at 15 minutes and 32 seconds.
BB adds, “Gok Wan always said confidence is key and we’ve just found this out to be a lie. Oh Gok, we trusted you…”
