Housemates' Big divide
Jul 14, 2008, 8:55 GMT
The 'Big Brother' house was split into Heaven and Hell yesterday. The contestants were informed they would be splitting in two during a special presidential banquet, where it was announced Darnell had been elected Head of House following his election battle with Dale and Luke.
After being told by Big Brother that "with great power comes great responsibility", Darnell was tasked with picking six housemates to join him on the Heaven side of the house.
He chose Dale, Rex, Mohamed, Kathreya, Rachel and Maysoon.
Reading instructions from Big Brother, Rex announced only the heavenly housemates were allowed access to the luxury bedroom while only those residing in Hell were able to enter the kitchen.
He read: "Housemates from Hell prepare all meals and drinks, other than water, for the house as a whole. Any attempts to cross the divide will be punished severely."
Lisa promised to take care of her side of the house, saying they would be "spoilt".
A belligerent Rebecca added: "We're got the best group anyway!"
However, Mikey was not so optimistic about the twist.
As the group emerged from the meal to discover the house had been split in two using a plastic divide, he commented: "Well, we all know who Darnell's friends are now don't we?"
The Heaven housemates were more excited, with Darnell in raptures when he noticed they had cold, filtered tap water to drink.
Rex was less impressed, saying: "It would be better if it was a beer tap."
