Ep opens with the HMs playing charades, Mary is making vegan biscuits and Danny and Nick are sulking following their failed coup.
Holly: and i knew immediately that Christina was miming Shrek
Tilly discovers a big button! Everyone tells her not to push it
Holly: I’d do it. Let’s spice things up
BB let’s the HMs know that the big red button will light up, play a song and they can press the button if they dare… It could be good it could be bad! Anything is possible.
Tilly is ready and eager to press the button, she wants a bag of lollies. Her wishes are almost answered when she presses the button and … CUE AN ICECREAM VAN DRIVES IN

Deals with the Danny
Danny arranges a meeting with who he’s calling the top 6 including his alliance members Nick and Mel and his arch enemies Katie, Jess and Marley
What does he want? A deal.
His terms? Until top 10 if any people in either alliance win a challenge they will not put each other up. Katie rightly says she’ll think about it
Tilly walks right into the alliance meeting and delivers food
Then Ari walks in!
Holly: Uh oh Ari is not dumb he’ll know somethings up with these guys all in the same room hmmmmm
The meeting does not go Danny’s way
Rose: I missed the start lol but as I jumped in Danny is scrambling for people to form alliances.
Rose: An ad for LinkedIn job alerts just got cut off short for Big Brother to restart and honestly I think that sums up

Next button hit!
Jess hits it and wins the house 15mins with PUPPIES
Rose: OMG THE PUPPIES. Honestly letting the housemates keep a dog wouldn’t be a bad thing
Mitch camps next to the button because he just wants to do something. He hits it.
BB gives him some ingredients to cook. BB reckons he’s a wingman and says Mitch can cook this for him and one other person. Mitch decides this is the perfect time for his date with Christina.
Rose: So you think Mitch had to cook the meal himself?
Holly: Surely Maria cooked this
Rose: Honestly if Mitch strikes out with Christina I have a bunch of friends who would love some bird chat and a platypus tour
Rose: Christina, there is no limit to how many platypus facts you should hear on a date ahaha
Holly: Ari is the only person who doesn’t think they’re compatible ahah Tells it like it is
Christina is unfortunately not enamoured by the bird facts
Nick gets his makeup done by the girls.
He thinks his eyebrows look good. SJ says his eyes pop.
Holly: why hasn’t this been done sooner? I’d be getting everyone up in drag.
Rose: I think Nick is feeling himself – nothing like a bit of glam to feel pretty
ANOTHER BUTTON PUSH
Sid pushes and gets a punishment… he receives a copy of Danny’s book ‘So you wanna be a real estate super star’. Danny gets to give Sid a private reading. Turns out Danny has some deep and heartfelt stuff in the book. It makes him cry. BB lets him skip to a happier chapter.
Rose: AHHHH Sid getting Danny’s book, that’s too funny. I feel like it was set up to be funny and then Danny cried and then they panicked and had to direct the scene to be wholesome/heartfelt. It IS funny though.
Holly: Danny ends up finding inspiration from himself and honestly, same.
Danny decides to really cement his place as the most hated housemate by running around screaming while banging pots and pans. The delusion is real.

Housemates hold onto a pulley that holds their body weight on a plank – drop the handle, you fall off the plank.
Holly: I got distracted reading about the Obama’s dog that died and missed what the go was with the challenge
Holly: Katie said she felt like her spine was being lengthened and i think i’d like to try it for that purpose
It’s a hard challenge. HMs drop quickly. Tilly seems like she’s having fun.
Rose: if you’re not physically fit/strong don’t even think about applying for BB
Rose: this challenge is well suited to people who would’ve been good at monkey bars as a kid
After an hour and a half Tilly wins with incredible ease. Off to nominate she goes.
Tilly sees Katies as her biggest competitor. She says Dan has the balls to do everyone’s dirty work. But she doesn’t want to “start a war” so…
The nominees are SJ, Mitch and Sid (safe vote again)
Holly: I like that Tilly is keeping our main characters in for a while
WAIT ANOTHER BUTTON PUSH
As button pusher Nick gets to remove one of the nominated HMs from the house so they can’t plead their case before eviction.
Mitch is picked and gets trapped in a cage hanging from a crane, unable to talk to any of the housemates. He loves it because he can bird watch from up there.

In the eviction room
Tilly says everyone up is a ‘safe’ vote. SJ is OVER it and tells everyone to STOP WITH THE SAFE VOTES!
Rose: So glad SJ is calling out the safe votes, no votes are safe!
After being in the cage for two-hours, Sonia allows Mitch to plead his case. He tells everyone which type of bird they are.
Holly: THIS IS WHOLESOME
Rose: Mitch describing each person as a bird is so cute! Give me a buzzfeed quiz for which native bird I am pls
Sid once again, receives no votes but the toll of these nominations is getting to him.
Ultimately it was 4 votes for SJ and 9 votes for Mitch. His final words… Danny, Nick and Mel are goners if they don’t win challenge. Oooh yep!
Holly: Tilly is amazing. She genuinely is not phased by these challenges. Mitch is very charming with his love of birds. I felt for him in that cage even though he enjoyed it.
Rose: I’m pleased to see the pressure on both alliances is forcing them to make bigger moves. Much more exciting for us!
Holly: A war is bound to break out soon. The tension is rising.
Rose: Mitchell is a “2D animator” – I wonder what show he works on.
I tried to google it, and found out Mitch is planning on spending his winnings (if he were to win) on buying part of a rainforest to save it from developers https://www.tropicnow.com.au/2021/april/23/cairns-man-joins-cast-of-new-big-brother-season
Holly: the diary room chair is looking dirty
Rose: how many producers do you reckon the show has? Because it seems like the housemates chat to BB every chance they get. It’d be pretty demanding.
Best housemate/who I want to live with:♥️
Rose: Mitch obviously
Holly: Maria <3
Who would I vote out:❌
