The female Housemates were shattered to fail their challenge when they incorrectly matched the males to their Secrets. They face Nomination but the boys are facing a challenge all of their own – it’s their turn to guess some Secrets!
“It’s time to turn the tables,” began Big Brother. “The Parlour is no more. All male Housemates to the Man Cave.” With rousing cheers and shouts of “YESSSSS!” from the men, they raced to their new ‘hang’. “I hope there are strippers in here,” mused George.
Strippers there were not, but their incredulous look on their faces showed how happy the males were as they surveyed their new digs. The Man Cave was decked out with full vintage cabin regalia and the boys were impressed. “This is BOSS!” said Bradley.
“Male Housemates, welcome to the Man Cave,” said Big Brother. He then wasted no time in revealing the seven female secrets and instructing the males, “Your job will be to match [these secrets] to their correct owners.” He continued: “Male Housemates, success will mean avoiding Nomination for another week.”
“We can do this!” said George, confidently.
The secrets are:
I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
I was a champion weightlifter
I am a high school dropout
I was a nude protester
I used to be an emo
I was a hand model
I am a member of a Royal Family
“Oh Layla!” One of the boys shouted, upon seeing ‘I am a member of a Royal Family.’
“They know each other’s secrets,” said Ray instantly, alleging that the girls were already pretending to own Secrets that belonged to others. He said that Charne had been clearly been pretending to have OCD. BB was quick to assure them that the females did NOT know each other’s Secrets and Ray immediately piped down.
Straight away, the boys suspected Estelle might be the nude protester. Ryan clarified that Estelle said she didn’t mind getting nude in the House and Bradley agreed, “She’s all for keeping the peace.”
“The weightlifter is an easy one, we should be able to pick this one” said George. “Who’s got big legs?” Ryan asked, explaining that a weightlifter would be stocky.
“[Angie’s] very articulate about how people see her nude. That makes her part of the Royal Family.” said Benjamin.
Michael suggested they work through the secrets systematically. “Obviously … ‘Royal Family’… everyone knows that is Layla.” He went through the other Secrets, speculating that the girls’s Secrets would be the opposite of what the gentlemen expected. “I don’t look smart,” he said. “Prim and proper” Ray didn’t seem like a criminal, he continued, and “good looking” Ryan would surely have had many girlfriends. The boys agreed that they should expect the unexpected.
“What’s Stacey?” was the next question. They all agreed, ‘Used to be an emo” was too obvious. “I was an emo,” confessed Michael.
While they excitedly chattered, BB broke in and clarified the rules. The Man Cave will open daily. They can’t directly ask females about their Secrets. If they break the rules, like the girls, they will be up for Nomination. “Do you think there’s going to be some sort of, I guess, bias?” Michael asked, saying the girls would know the game and what they were up against. Big Brother reminded the males that they had already had an extra week to get to know the females when their guard was down. “Game on,” he finished.
“I’m loving the fact that none of us are up for Nomination this week!” said Ben. “I think we all did a good job … except YOU!” he said to Michael, asking why he didn’t play up to being stupid in an attempt to disguise his high IQ. Michael protested that he didn’t know how to act stupid.
As their time in the Man Cave drew to a close, the boys agreed to take a Secret each and finally, it was time to leave. Competitive spirit well and truly pumping, the men left the Man Cave hooting and hollering, in search of food… and Secrets! Game On indeed!
