Big Brother Australia 2014 - Day 24 Recap - An intruder enters; 7 housemates are nominated

October 1, 2014

Ryan told Sam and Sandra that he feels as though there is a divide in the house, as it’s the older crew vs the younger crew. Sam told Ryan that he can take some solace in knowing that Skye will be nominated tonight. Ryan felt that David may slip through nominations this time. Sam said that he may be right, adding that he will give David another week. Priya felt that the biggest element that is missing from the house without Katie there is that the stereotypical mean girls are not mean anymore. Priya believed that the rift between Lisa and Skye would continue to grow, while Lisa and Aisha would get closer. She also thought that Cat and Skye would get closer, which would lead the boys to go in different directions. Priya did not know which side she would be on, though she said that she would not have a herd mentality. Lisa went to the diary room and began crying, saying that her experience is going to change now that she cannot share it with Katie. Lisa told Ryan that the biggest geeks in the school have taken over and have locked up the cheerleaders and the jocks, picking them off one by one.

Sonia then introduced us to the intruder, Leo. Sonia told Leo that she loves his American accent. He corrected her and said that it’s Canadian. Sonia then brought up that Leo does not own a TV, asking him if he has seen any of the show. Leo said that he has not. He explained that he is really active and enjoys being outside a lot. Sonia wondered why he decided to enter the house. He said that it is a once in a lifetime experience and there is nothing else like it. Sonia then reminded Leo that he cannot tell the housemates about anything that has gone on outside of the house, before sending him in. Leo entered the sanctuary. Big Brother welcomed him to the house and offered to have one housemate come and bring him up to speed. Based on the housemates’ photos, Leo said that he would like to meet Aisha.

It was then time to watch Katie’s parting message. She told Skye that she cannot deal with Skye’s tantrums. Katie said that she gets paid to work with children, but she is not paid to be there with Skye. She advised Skye to tone it down a notch. Katie said that the biggest issue in the house at the moment would have to be the love triangle between Jake, Skye and Lisa. Skye said that she doesn’t feel that Jake is as honest as he lets on. Lisa told Skye that she is done with Jake, while Skye is head over heels for him. Skye explained that Jake had made it sound as though Lisa said that she liked him, but Lisa said that it never happened. Skye wondered who she should trust, Jake or Lisa. Lisa said that this isn’t about her, it’s about Jake wanting to kiss the two of them. Lisa was frustrated and went to Jake to vent about her talk with Skye. Skye told Priya that she does not understand why Jake had to tell everyone about them kissing last night. Skye said that she attracted to Jake intellectually, though she doesn’t know how Lisa feels about it. Priya then went to Lisa and relayed her conversation with Skye.

As part of the yes-no task, Big Brother asked Lisa if she would like to have dinner with a mystery man. Lisa said yes and was then shown video of Leo and told that he is the first intruder of 2014. Big Brother told Lisa that she must brief him on all of the other housemates and on life in the Big Brother house. Lisa then made her way to the sanctuary and met Leo. Leo told Lisa that he does not own a TV and has never watched Big Brother. Leo said that he has lived in Australia since 2007 when he moved over from Canada. Lawson and Cat were called to the diary room as part of the task. Big Brother asked Lawson if he would like for Cat to slap him in the face with a fish. He said yes and proceeded to get slapped with the fish. Big Brother then called Lawson and Sam to the diary room. Sam slapped Lawson on both sides of the face with the fish. It was then time for Lawson and Jake to go to the diary room to repeat the task.

David told Sam that he has been thinking about nominations and feels as though they really have a chance to be strategic. He said that his gut feeling is that anyone that has been involved in a confrontation over the past two or three days will be nominated. Sam wondered what his power play would be. David figured that it would be that he would get to listen to three people’s nominations and that he would choose him because he doesn’t know where he is at. Sam said that he would not waste one on him. Sam went to Sandra and Ryan and told them that the only conversations that he has with David are strategy and it’s boring. The housemates were then called to the lounge. Big Brother played a video of Aisha’s grandmother telling her that Big Brother booked her a flight to Australia to see her once she gets out. As part of the task, Big Brother asked if Aisha would like to have the ticket cancelled. Aisha said yes.

Big Brother then checked in with Leo and Lisa. Leo said that he was excited to enter the Big Brother house. It was at that point that Big Brother instructed Lisa to escort Leo in to the house. He met his fellow housemates in the kitchen. Big Brother told the housemates that their numbers have just increased by one, but that next week they will decrease by two.
