It’s day 2 of the celebrities first shopping task, which will finish with two leaving the house tonight for a trolly dash.
On Monday, the latest crop of celebrity housemates were set their first shopping task of the series – Big Spenders.
In a break from the usual pass/fail outcome, the group will earn money towards the shopping budget as they spend money in a series of chalenges. On day 1, the celebrities spent £485.
Here are the challenges set by Big Brother on day 2:
Shot ’til you drop
Up to six Housemates will be invited into an exclusive VIP area. Once there, they are offered the opportunity to buy rounds of shots, including Risky Sours, Bloody Scary and Sam-puker. However if they buy a round but fail to all finish a round of drinks, they will be reimbursed.
Coleen, Julian, Julie and Sam will enter the garden with their cheque books. On the table in front of them are two piles of cards – one containing cards of the housemates’ faces and the other containing a number of ‘Home Truths’. The home truths are incomplete statements. For example, one of them reads “Your worst habit is…”
Housemates will go in alphabetical order to pick up the top card from each pile, holding up the housemate’s face and reading out the incomplete sentence written on the card. For each truth told, Housemates will spend a crucial ten pounds. If Big Brother doesn’t deem a Home Truth to be truthful enough then Housemates’ cheques will bounce and will not be counted towards the group’s efforts.
Day 2 result
Over the two days, housemates spent a total of £725 out of a possible £1000. They will therefore receive a shopping budget worth £725. Nominated housemates Jasmine and Rhian will leave the house tonight to embark on a trolly dash at Morrison’s, in a repeat of a twist first seen last summer with Jedward.
Jasmine and Rhian had four minutes each to complete their trolley dash. However, they were told that if at the end of the dash they had accumulated more than £725 worth of goods in their trolleys then they would leave the store with NOTHING and receive an economy budget for this week’s shopping.
Fortunately Jasmine and Rhian’s trolley dash came to a total of £438.65 and so returned with laden bags!
