Big Brother Australia 2014 - Day 38 Recap - Skye wins $5,000; Nominations are made

October 15, 2014

Skye told Big Brother that it was time for her to receive a power play. She was told that the treasure chest in front of her contains 50 coins and 45 of them are filled with chocolate but 5 of them are filled with gold and are worth $1,000 each. Skye was told that she will have 60 seconds to find as many gold coins as she can, however Big Brother has put together a 60 second clip that shows all of her nominations. If she chooses to search for the gold, Big Brother will play the clip of her nominations to all of the other housemates. Skye was told that if it took her 20 seconds to find the 5 gold coins then Big Brother would play 20 seconds of her nominations to the housemates. If she fails to find all 5 gold coins, Big Brother will play the entire clip. Big Brother said that he does not want Skye’s answer now and will call her back to the power room later.

Ben was talking to Travis and asked him why he thinks that he is nominated every single week. Travis said that he has dropped in nomination points every single week. He wondered if it was because of the dishes or not being able to cook. Ben explained that he had to rely on kindness to be fed, as he could not cook at all either. Big Brother then flashed back to the aftermath of last night’s evictions. Aisha told the girls that it sucks because Travis was a good person. Sandra broke down crying after Sam was evicted. Big Brother played Travis’ parting message to the housemates. Travis told Aisha that she surprises him every day and makes him happier the more time he spends with her. Travis told Aisha that he can’t see himself being happy without her in his life. Travis told the rest of the housemates to not buy into Big Brother’s ploys to tear them apart, also wishing them the best of luck moving forward. It was then time for Sam’s parting message. Sam told Sandra that he never thought that he would make a connection like the one that he made with her. Sam then said that Marina is causing the most disharmony in the house and is a poor liar. Sam advised the others to watch out for her.

Aisha went to the diary room to tell Big Brother that she lost that person that will be there for you 110% whether you are right or wrong. She also felt that she had lost that person that will give her compliments every single day and make her feel special. Sandra told Big Brother that she can’t even imagine waking up tomorrow without Sam. She said that even if she were to win the game Sam would still be the best thing to come out of this. Marina told Big Brother that she feels as though she did not get a chance to know Sam and that his goodbye message was harsh. She felt as though Sam was always confrontational with her and would put her on the spot. Sonia crossed live to speak to Ben and Travis. Ben said that he is trying his best to transform Travis, working on his posture and vocabulary. Sonia asked Travis what he has learned from Ben. Travis said how to be kind and sweet like a gentleman.
