Big Brother Australia kicked off its third week on Sunday night with Angela becoming Big Brother’s “little sister” and helping set up the first true blindside of the season that left the house shook.
The episode kicks off with Big Brother setting Angela a secret mission to become his “little sister” and help with the house task. For this week’s task, the housemates must say yes to everything Big Brother asks. With some help from Angie, Daniel kicks a footy over the fence, Garth becomes a butler, and Mat gets a heavy dose of spray tan. As a reward for winning the task, the housemates were rewarded with a buffet from KFC.
The mood from half of the house was to get Kieran out. Every time he walked into a room or sat down, people stopped talking. His habits were grating on people and it just did not sit well with the group and he is clearly target No. 1.
For the nominations challenge, the housemates played in pairs. They were tasked with stacking 10 cylinders on a shelf while keeping the cylinders balanced so they wouldn’t fall. The first pair to balance all 10 cylinders on their shelf would win. It was a close race but in the end, Zoe and Sarah won the challenge and were tasked with nominating three housemates for the chop.
Zoe and Sarah were called to the Diary Room to nominate but Zoe totally got her way and nominated Kieran, Marissa, and Ian as a pawn for eviction. Sarah had no say in the nominations and let Zoe do all the talking.
Back in the bunker, Angela was fuming over the nominations. Big Brother allowed her to choose one housemate to join her in the bunker and she picked Garth. She told Garth to help her save Kieran and Marissa as Ian is close to the alpha alliance. Garth went to work planting seeds in the hopes of pulling off a massive blindside.
Host Sonia Kruger returned for the eviction. The housemates would head to vote and Sonia revealed Marissa had one vote, Kieran had four votes, and Ian had seven. This meant Ian’s time in the Big Brother house was over and Angela’s coup had the alpha alliance shook.
“I got blindsided. Everyone told me I was safe,” Ian said after his eviction. “Oh well, these things happen. I feel so proud that living in a house with a complete bunch of strangers isn’t as scary as it should be to me. I’ve come so far. I’m so proud of myself. This whole experience has been an amazing time. I don’t regret a single minute of it. My message for the Housemates would have to look after those fish, don’t let them die.”
Big Brother Australia continues Monday night at 7.30 on Channel 7 in Australia.
