Based on a compatibility test, the Housemates are paired up and compete against each other. At the end of the day the best-performing four couples are invited to a love-themed party in the Living Area. The other two couples are barred.
At the beginning of the day the Housemates are given half of a heart-shaped coloured pendant. Housemates determine their pair by matching up their halves of the pendant. Those couples are paired up for the rest of the day and compete to win entry to the party.
1. Kimberly and Marlon
2. Jale and Winston
3. Helen and Ash
4. Ashleigh and Chris
5. Christopher and Mark
6. Steven and Danielle
Four of the best performing couples will enjoy a romantic themed party, with prom-style outfits, heart-shaped food and romantic songs for them to slow dance to. The losing four will be barred. We will also dress the Pod as a Love Nest – a luxury romantic snug for two. The pair who were most successful during the day’s two hits will be crowned the ‘Perfect Match’ and will gain entry to the Love Nest.
1) COLOUR OF LOVE
Each couple has a giant oblong paint tray matching the colour of their heart pendant. At the other end of the garden there is a canvas. The couples play one at a time and have one minute each. One of the couple must cover themselves in as much of their coloured paint as possible and run to their partner who is behind a half way line. They must transfer the paint onto their partner without crossing the line and without using their hands; their partner must then cover the canvas in their paint colour. Big Brother will judge which pair has done the best and worst job
2) MATCH MAKERS
How well do the couples know each other’s views? This is a Mr and Mrs-style task about their time in the house. The five remaining couples come to the Diary Room one pair at a time. One Housemate has headphones on; the other is asked a series of questions (e.g. Which Housemate do you most want to leave next? Who should have had Jale’s killer nomination?) Then the other housemate takes their headphones off and is asked the same questions and must attempt to copy the answer given by their partner. The couple who get the least number of matching answers aren’t invited to the party.
