Having lumbered them with the challenge of faking a marriage a week ago, Big Brother initially told them if they could fool their housemates into believing the sham they would be immune from nominations. But if any housemate came to the Diary Room to question their authenticity the jig was up and they would be automatically nominated.
So why on earth did he put the notion to their fellow housemates last night, bringing them to the Diary Room and asking how many of them disbelieved “Drade” was a real couple?
Talk about egging them on. Only Matt and Ben believed they were authentic (and likely to win more fans as a result).
As the pair had survived a week without anybody fronting the Diary Room then that’s a pass in my book.
Shoving them all in the diary room and ASKING them several times isn’t the same thing. #BBAU

That’s bullshit. No-one specifically went to diary room & questioned the marriage, as per the rules. They only went when BB made them! #BBAU
Meanwhile 3 “latecomers” joined the party last night. Melbourne student Rohan, who has Indian heritage and is a part-time actor, and two blonde, spray-tanned Perth sisters Katie and Lucy. Did they think this was The Shire?
