Big Brother 2010, also known as Big Brother 11, was the eleventh series of the British reality television series Big Brother, and the last series to be broadcast on Channel 4. The series launched on 9 June 2010,[1] and was aired on Channel 4 for 77 days, with the finale on 24 August 2010, where Josie Gibson was crowned the winner with 77.5% of the public vote.

Big Brother 11 was produced by Remarkable Pictures, a division of Endemol. This series was confirmed since 2006 as part of a £180million contract between Endemol UK and Channel 4.[2] The series was sponsored by skincare brand Freederm.[3] The 24-hour live streaming had been reinstated for this series and was available via the website as a fee-based service.[4]

Immediately following the final of this series, an additional series, Ultimate Big Brother began with memorable Celebrity Big Brother and Big Brother housemates from across the show's history, Gibson re-entered the house just moments after she won Big Brother 11, however she quit the show after less than 48 hours.[5]

Production[edit]

Auditions[edit]

Open auditions for the series took place in Manchester on 15–16 January 2010, in Dublin on 19 January 2010, in Cardiff on 23 January 2010, in Glasgow on 30 January 2010 and in London on 6–7 February 2010.[6]

Pre-series[edit]

On 10 May, the Celebrity Big Brother 7 website was replaced with a Big Brother 11 mini-site updated with 23 pictures of Big Brother 11's new trailer. The trailer was aired on Channel 4 during The Million Pound Drop Live on 24 May. The trailer featured 30 ex-housemates from the past 10 series of Big Brother attending a funeral of the Diary Room Chair, with show narrator Marcus Bentley as the priest.

On 14 May, it was announced on the Big Brother mini-site that Emma Willis would be joining the current presenter of Big Brother's Little Brother, George Lamb, as co-host for the series.[7] On 17 May, break bumpers featuring the falling flowers began showing on Channel 4. To celebrate the final series of Big Brother, Davina McCall hosted a special programme, Big Brother's Big Awards Show,[8] where the British public has bestowed accolades upon memorable housemates from the previous series. This special was aired on E4 on 22 May. A further programme, Big Brother Exposed: The Inside Story,[9] was aired on 28 May on E4, brought viewers highlights of the past ten series. On 21 May, Channel 4 unveiled the floral-themed eye logo for this summer's series of Big Brother.[10]

[edit]

The logo, which was made up of hundreds of brightly coloured flowers, was a tribute to the eleven series since its debut in 2000.[11]

Title Sequence[edit]

The titles had a carnival theme which included spinning cogs, a gramophone which was exploding with flower petals and a spinning Big Brother clock which was striking 11. There was also cutaway messages during the titles, spelling out 'Welcome' 'To The' 'Mad House'.

Format[edit]

The theme for this series was carnival. Like always, housemates entered the House with no contact with the outside world. Each week, the housemates took part in a compulsory task that determined the amount of money they were allocated to spend on their shopping; if they passed, they received a luxury budget and they were allocated a basic budget if they failed. Housemates nominated two housemates for eviction every week. In a new nominations twist revealed on Day 6, the nominated housemates were allowed to escape nominations with a weekly Save and Replace challenge. The Save and Replace winner is exempt from nominations, however, they must replace themselves with another housemate of their choice for eviction. This nominations twist that was held every week is similar to the Power of Veto from the American version of Big Brother.

Eviction format[edit]

The eviction format saw a number of changes, at the beginning of an eviction show, a round-up of the weeks events - featuring newspaper headlines - would be shown to viewers. This series saw the return of McCall announcing the eviction from outside the house with the housemates hearing the live audience cheering, booing and chanting. Occasionally, If more than two housemates faced eviction, McCall would announce which nominee(s) will be safe, however, this was only done a handful of times (Week 1, 2 and 7), three housemates face eviction in Weeks 3, 5 and 8, and four in Week 9, where no announcement of who was safe was announced, in Week 10 eight housemates faced the public vote which would lead to the first ever quadruple eviction, out of the four times McCall spoke to the house she would announce one nominee who was safe and then announce the evictee who would have to leave immediately. The eviction announcements were made in no particular order (see Nominations Table), John James received the highest number of eviction votes, followed by Corin, Sam and Steve, however the order they left the house was Steve, Corin, Sam and John James.

Another change to the eviction format was the housemates 'best bits getting shown before the interview rather than at the end as in every other series - although the previous Celebrity series adopted this format. The panel format used in the eviction interviews the previous year did not return, instead McCall interviewed the evictee in a one-on-one format, however, for the first time ever, viewers could call in with questions to ask the evictee. Also, evictees were shown goodbye messages the housemates recorded for them in the event of their departure, similar to the format used in the American version of the show. The new eviction format continued for Ultimate Big Brother, the only difference that all interviews were performed outside of the studio.

Special features[edit]

Tree of Temptation[edit]

Located in the bathroom was a chest of drawers created from the Tree of Temptation that was present in the 2010 celebrity series. The Tree of Temptation gave housemates secret tasks to gain rewards for themselves or other housemates. The first task occurred on Day 1 when Mario was performing his "Impossible Task". This is the list of all tasks throughout the series:

Day 63 Sam To rub blue cheese under his armpits and pass it off as his own body odour. Dave's letter from his daughter that he failed to earn on Day 55.
Passed
When no one commented on the cheese smell, Sam cut up garlic and rubbed it all over his body. The Tree of Temptation praised Sam for his quick thinking and shared that it considered him as an apprentice. [23]
Day 74 Andrew To say "yes" to everything housemates asked him to do or asked him about himself. A perfect day including breakfast in bed, a make-over, a hair cut and a party for all housemates.
Passed
The Tree of Temptation told the rest of the housemates, one by one, about this task so that they could have fun manipulating Andrew. [24]

Bob Righter[edit]

Bob Righter is a fortune teller machine that provided the housemates with (often cryptic) information on upcoming tasks and events. It is so named as it is an anagram of "Big Brother".

Day Recipient Token Notes Source

As Ben failed a Tree of Temptation task, he received a "bad day" from Big Brother.
Day 31 All housemates You've just witnessed Nathan's demise,
now it's time to look to the skies.
Three new housemates (Andrew, Keeley and Rachel) entered the House, by landing in the garden in a 'spaceship', dressed as astronauts.
Day 38 All housemates My feathered friend listens to all that is said,
she'll pipe up from wake up till time for your bed.
But in between squawks, whistles and tweeting,
which housemates' words has my bird been repeating?
If you think that it's you put a coin in my slot,
win a prize if you're right and nothing if you're not.
The first token arrived during the morning of the eviction day. Bob led the housemates to Davina McCaw to begin a task in which they had to recall who had said phrases repeated by the parrot. The later tokens for this task were given to housemates, along with a reward, if they had correctly identified who had said each phrase. Mario was rewarded with massage oil, Josie received chocolate, Rachel got sweets, Corin was given make up and nail varnish, Steve received Coco-pops, Ben was given a copy of some newspaper headlines from the last few weeks and Dave was rewarded with a photo of his wife.
Mario Well done Mario, here's a gift for your toil.
A bottle of sensual massage oil.
[25]
Josie Well done Josie, that wasn't a shock.
Here's bar after bar of your favourite choc.
[25]
Rachel Well done Rachel, here’s your treat,
Bob thinks you’ll find this really sweet.
[25]
Corin Well done Corin, you are simply the best,
pamper yourself rotten and get it all off your chest.
[25]
Steve Well done Steve, you achieved your goal,
here’s something tasty for your breakfast bowl.
[25]
Ben Well done Ben, here’s news for you,
read it out loud to the rest of your crew.
[25]
Dave Well done Dave, way to go!
A little gift for you, a nice photo.
[25]
All housemates Bob has a treat to lift the gloom;
Ben must go straight to the Diary Room.
The second token of the day arrived after the eviction. It instructed Ben to go to the Diary Room for a meal and to listen to music. This was a distraction so that the other housemates could begin a Tree of Temptation task.
Day 70 All housemates For 70 days I’ve been watching you closely,
from Sam to Steve, John James to Josie.
I’ve observed every movement, every task and eviction;
now I’ve used all this knowledge to make a prediction.
It tells of future events that involve all of you;
to pass this task you must not let it come true.
To beat my prediction, I suggest that you change your routine,
from pretty to ugly, from polite to obscene.
You should adjust your behaviour, act different and strange,
because if you fail in this task, all you’ll get is small change.
You’ve become so predictable, in your ways you are stuck,
this isn’t going to be easy, but I wish you good luck!
Remember housemates, Bob Righter is watching you.
This token marked the beginning of the Week 10 shopping task and was delivered in the morning of Day 70 after housemates had been shown a video of Bob Righter coming alive during the night. Whilst alive, Bob conspired with Davina McCaw and the Tree of Temptation, then made a list of 15 predictions about the housemates. For housemates to pass the shopping task they had to prevent 8 or more of these predictions from coming true; they failed to do this.

The House[edit]

The first aerial pictures of the House were released by the Daily Star magazine[citation needed] as early as mid-May. On 5 June, pictures of the interior of the House were released. Rooms revealed were the entrance, living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and the garden.

The final Big Brother House was the most luxurious and open. The House was mainly walled with floral designs on glass, similar to series 7. The entrance had a theme of heaven, but had been revamped to one staircase rather than the previous two staircases. The diary room was tucked on the right hand side. Upon entering the living room, there was one large red sofa with a red/black theme. In contrast to the kitchen and bathroom's modern effect, the bedroom consisted of a Salvador Dalí design in the beds. The garden kept up a carnival theme, including a carousel. A snug was also built for the housemates to lounge and chat, and in addition, a mini pool/hot tub.[26] On Day 70, the house was evacuated to a temporary location due to severe flooding in the living area and bedroom.[27] The housemates returned later, and were limited to the task room to live.[28]

Housemates[edit]

On Day 1, eighty-one hopefuls arrived at the entrance of the House – seventy-nine of whom had been revealed before the series began.[29] Only fourteen housemates were selected to enter out of all candidates. The first thirteen were selected by Big Brother, and the fourteenth housemate (Mario) was selected by a random draw.[30] Three new housemates (Andrew, Keeley and Rachel), whose identities were revealed on the Channel 4 website on Day 30, arrived in the House by spaceship during the Day 31 eviction show. On Day 45, three more new housemates (JJ, Jo and Laura) were selected to enter the House by the current housemates from a choice of six. These six were among those not chosen to enter the House on Day 1.[31] After Laura walked, Sam, who was one of the three not selected on Day 45, entered the House on Day 52 as part of the "Ignore the Obvious" task.

Summary[edit]

On launch night, eighty-one potential housemates stood near the crowd waiting to find out who would enter the House by being chosen by Big Brother, live. Big Brother selected thirteen housemates, whilst the final, fourteenth housemate was chosen by a random draw held by Davina.[30] Mario won the random draw, however, Big Brother set him an "Impossible Task" upon entry. He was forced to work undercover as a mole, interfering with the House in a forced discretion for four days. If the majority of the housemates suspected him as a mole, Mario would receive an immediate eviction. He entered the House with a mole suit and a sign saying "I AM A MOLE" to draw housemates to fast suspicions. In the later hours, Mario got access to the Mole Hole, his living quarters located in a door at the garden.[32]

Mario was required to complete a series of tasks for the Tree of Temptation. Mario successfully completed all four secret missions, however, in the evening, Big Brother confirmed that there was a mole in the House. All housemates including Mario then voted on the person they thought was the mole. Ben, Caoimhe, Dave, Govan, John James, Josie, Mario, Nathan, Shabby, and Steve voted for Sunshine. Corin and Ife voted for Mario. Rachael voted for Steve, and Sunshine voted for Ben. As the majority did not identify Mario as the mole, Mario was allowed to stay in the House as an official housemate.[33]

For the first shopping task, set on Day 2, all of the housemates except Sunshine had a meal at a dining table suspended forty metres in the air. Sunshine had to depict five headlines from the previous night's newspapers on a giant note pad in the garden. For every correct answer the housemates at the dining table guessed, the housemates received £100 for next week's shopping budget.[34] Housemates guessed two correctly and won £200 for shopping. Housemates earned the contents of their suitcases on Day 3 by putting on as much of their clothes as they could within four minutes. Any extra clothing was confiscated. Dave, Shabby and Sunshine were nominated for eviction on Day 6, but as Dave won the "Hickory Dickory Dock" task he saved himself and replaced himself with Rachael. The shopping task later in the week had housemates test out three new gameshow pilots to replace Big Brother on Channel 4.[35] Housemates won £200 towards their shopping budget over the two days of the task.[36] On Day 10, housemates won a special World Cup barbecue after seven housemates blew vuvuzelas non-stop for 90 minutes.[37] Later that night, Rachael was evicted from the House.

In the second week, Ben, Dave, Govan and Shabby were originally nominated. Shabby saved herself in the task "Scooter Slide", where each nominated housemate had three attempts to ride a scooter through a course without knocking over any markers and replaced herself with Mario.[38] On Day 15, housemates took part in a backwards day shopping task. After undoing a completed key jigsaw, they later had to work out how to put it back together within a time limit.[39] Housemates passed the task but the money earned for the shopping was taken away due to persistent rule breaking and they were placed on basic rations until further notice.[40] On Day 17, Govan was evicted from the House with 72% of the public vote.

On Day 18, housemates won a penalty shootout against the housemates in the German Big Brother House and won the opportunity to see the England v Germany game in the first knockout stage of the World Cup.[41] To win a birthday party for Steve, housemates had to talk through puppets of themselves for a period of time on Day 19.[42] Dave, Shabby and Sunshine were nominated on Day 20, but Dave saved himself by winning the task "Your Face on TV", where they had to slide the pieces of a jumbled up picture of their face so as to unjumble them. Dave replaced himself with Caoimhe.[43] Housemates celebrated International Joke Day for their shopping task by taking on various joke stereotypes, including a dumb blonde and an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman. Ben also exited the House for 90 seconds on eviction night to do a stand-up routine for the eviction crowd.[44] Housemates passed the task on Day 24, with Sunshine being evicted that night.

In the fourth week, on Day 26, housemates took part in a wheelchair basketball task, which ended up with Corin, Ife, John James, Nathan and Steve being rewarded with a party.[45] Shabby walked from the House on Day 27,[46] with Caoimhe and John James being nominated for eviction soon after.[47] However, after winning the "Stay on TV" task, Caoimhe replaced herself with Nathan.[48] For the weekly shopping task, Big BroBot took over the Big Brother House and housemates completed a series of Man v Machine tasks against Titan. Any housemate who lost a task was made into a robot and the housemates who were humans at the end of the task played against "Bigger Brother" in a game similar to Robot Wars (Bigger Brother competed in Robot Wars, notably finishing second in series 5). Housemates failed the task as they were defeated by Bigger Brother. On Day 31, Nathan was evicted with 89% of the public vote. After the eviction, Andrew, Keeley and Rachel entered the House by spaceship in the garden.

In Week 5, Caoimhe, Corin and Ife were nominated for eviction, but Caoimhe won the Save and Replace task – a paintball duel – and replaced herself with Mario.[49] In the weekly shopping task, the male housemates were kidnapped by the Uber Cougar and had to live in the Uber Cougar's Lair. The female housemates became superheroes and completed tasks to released the men.[50] The housemates passed the task as all of the males except Andrew and Dave were released over the time of the task. The mechanical parrot in the living room was part of a task on Day 38. The parrot repeated a quote by a housemate in the House and the housemate who said the quote had to put a coin in Bob Righter to receive an individual prize.[51] Later that night, Ife became the fifth housemate to evicted from the House.

Housemates joined the Glee club of "BB High" in Week 6 and auditioned for roles in their own version of "Don't Stop Believin'". They filmed a music video with the help of Pineapple Dance Studios' Andrew Stone which had to get 100,000 views on the Channel 4 website. Andrew and Corin also had to go out of the House and sing "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" in front of the eviction crowd.[52] Housemates passed both parts of the task and won a luxury shopping budget. Caoimhe and Rachel were nominated for eviction on Day 41, but Caoimhe walked on Day 42.[53] At the Save and Replace task on Day 42 (between Corin, Keeley and Rachel), Keeley fractured her ankle and was forced to leave the House for treatment. Keeley chose not to return to the House and the eviction scheduled for Day 45 was cancelled.[54] Housemates then had to choose 3 new housemates from 6 potential housemates – JJ, Jo, Joel, Laura, Megan and Sam. They chose JJ, Jo and Laura to enter the House.

Week 7's nominations saw Ben, Dave, John James and Steve face eviction but Steve saved himself in the "Battle of the Brides" task.[55] Laura decided to leave the House on Day 50.[56] In this week's shopping task, housemates took part in an "Ignore the Obvious" task, in which they had to ignore various distractions in the house such as a brass band, an estate agent showing potential buyers through the House, tourists walking around the House taking pictures, Marcus Bentley conducting his narrations from within the House, Davina McCall hosting part of the eviction show from in the House, a performance from Jedward and new housemate Sam entering the house. Housemates were allowed 88 fails over the three days of the task and passed the task with 86 fails.[57] On Day 52, Ben became the 6th person to be evicted with 52 percent of the public vote.

Week 8 was focussed on the arrival of Sam. He was not given his proper suitcase and instead had to wear flamboyant clothes provided by Big Brother. The housemates were given a playground endurance task, which Andrew won. For the weekly shopping task, housemates had to portray characters from Charles Dickens novels. As part of this, John James and Rachel had to sit in a dining room in chairs for 24 hours portraying Great Expectations character Miss Havisham. John James quit, claiming he didn't want to wear a dress and heels and spend the day with Rachel. Corin had to portray Scrooge and give out coins when the others begged, the others had to perform Consider Yourself from Oliver Twist and for the video to be viewed on the Big Brother website at least 100,000 times, which was reached. John James, Mario and Rachel were nominated for eviction, Mario won Save and Replace and choose Dave in his place. On Day 59, Rachel became the seventh housemate to be evicted, receiving 58.5% of the public vote.

In Week 9, Housemates nominated by pouring buckets of custard, mud, baked beans and tinned spaghetti or Big Brother's special sauce over the person they wished to nominate. They were not required to give any reason for nomination. Dave was punished for attempting to influence Andrew to nominate him by not being allowed to take part in the Save and Replace challenge. Mario won the save and replace task and replaced himself with Sam. For the weekly shopping task, housemates competed to become the ultimate pantomime housemate. JJ and John James won and competed in the annual pantomime horse race in Sandown Park Race Course. They won a £300 shopping budget for finishing third. On Day 66, Jo became the eighth person to be evicted with 39.2% of the public vote.

In Week 10, after Jo's eviction, housemates had to choose a fellow housemate to be given a ticket to the final. They chose Josie; all other housemates faced a quadruple eviction. For the week's shopping task, Bob Righter predicted 15 things about the housemates. The housemates did not know what the predictions were and the individual tasks that Bob Righter set had nothing to do with the task. On Day 71, ex-housemates Ben, Nathan and Rachael returned to the house as part of a task. On Day 73, Steve (9.8% of the public vote), Corin (20.6% of the public vote), Sam (14.6% of the public vote) and John James (34.2% of the public vote) left the house in a quadruple eviction.

In the final week, Andrew was given a task by the Tree of Temptation – he had to answer every question that he was asked with the word 'yes'. Adding to his humiliation, his fellow housemates Dave, JJ, Josie and Mario, were told in turn of Andrew's task so they could have fun manipulating him. As the housemates passed their task, they were awarded with a 'Perfect Day' the next day consisting of: Housemates being served breakfast in bed by ex-Celebrity Big Brother housemate Anthea Turner, Housemates being treated to a pampering session, Housemates being treated to having their hair done by professional stylist Lee Stafford and his assistant Jo, Housemates having a three-course meal cooked for them by Nancy Lam and housemates being treated to an exclusive performance by Simon Webbe, singing his new single 'Casanova'.

Andrew finished in fifth place to cheers and the song Teenage Dream by Katy Perry, followed by JJ who also received a warm reaction. Mario was evicted in third place with his prize 'butterfly jacket'. The final result was announced that Josie had won with over 77% of the public's vote, Dave being runner-up. After her interview, Josie re-entered the house for the final series: Ultimate Big Brother.

House flood[edit]

On the evening of Day 70 the house suffered from a freak rainstorm, resulting in the evacuation of the housemates to a nearby location in the Big Brother compound, due to severe flooding which caused leaks in the bedroom and living room from the roof.[58] After several hours, the housemates returned to the house.[59] For the remainder of Day 70 and the majority of Day 71, housemates only had access to the large task room (in the form of a makeshift bedroom), the garden, the garden toilet and small task room located off of this (formerly the mole hole, acting as a replacement small task room for the one located off the diary room) and the nest (in the form of a makeshift diary room). To prevent conversations in the nest ("diary room") with Big Brother from being overheard by other housemates, when a housemate wished to use the nest ("diary room"), the others had to move to the large task room ("bedroom").

At 8:33pm on Day 71, the housemates were allowed access to the whole house.[60]

On Big Brother's Little Brother on Day 71, George Lamb interviewed the creative director of Big Brother, Phil Edgar-Jones. George asked what caused the leak, and Phil replied "Some of the housemates were throwing socks up onto the roof, the socks got stuck in the gutter and because of that the water couldn't drain, so it collected on the roof."[61] Phil also highlighted the extent of the flooding by showing that approximately six inches of water had accumulated in the housemates' beds.

Notes[edit]

  • ^Note 1 : As new housemates, Andrew, Keeley and Rachel could not nominate and could not be nominated by their fellow housemates. During that week, they also could not be replaced in the Save and Replace task.
  • ^Note 2 : As punishment for discussing nominations, Caoimhe was banned from nominating and Keeley's nominations were voided. Caoimhe later walked from the house, meaning Corin, Keeley and Rachel were up for eviction. Had this not happened then Caoimhe and Rachel would have been up for eviction. The Save and Replace task was abandoned due to Keeley being injured during the task. Keeley was taken to hospital on Day 42 and Week 6's eviction was cancelled shortly after. On Day 45 Keeley decided to recuperate further at home and not return to the House.
  • ^Note 3 : As new housemates, JJ, Jo and Laura could not nominate and could not be nominated by their fellow housemates. During that week, they also could not be replaced in the Save and Replace task. As punishment for discussing nominations, Dave was banned from nominating and automatically faced eviction, along with the two or more housemates who received the most nominations.
  • ^Note 4 : As a new housemate, Sam could not nominate and could not be nominated by his fellow housemates. During that week, he also could not be replaced in the Save and Replace task.
  • ^Note 5 : As punishment for talking about nominating Sam, Dave, John James, and Josie were banned from nominating him that week. However, they could have still replaced themselves with Sam if they had been nominated and won the Save and Replace task. Housemates nominated face-to-face in "Nasty Nominations" in the garden, in which housemates had to pour horrible substances over the two housemates they chose to nominate. As punishment for discussing nominations, Dave could not participate in the Save and Replace task.
  • ^Note 6 : On Day 66, housemates had one minute to decide together who to give a ticket to the final. They chose Josie, therefore saving her from eviction. The rest of the housemates faced eviction. Had nominations taken place, Sam would have been banned from nominating for discussing nominations. That week, the four housemates with the most votes were evicted in no particular order.
  • ^Note 7 : For the final four days, the public were voting for who they wanted to win, rather than evict.
