There are a mixture of people. One is a former soldier who has fought in Afghanistan, but is now a civilian and and apprentice electrician. Some are uni students. One lady is really married and has children being cared for by her husband. Jade who is pretending to be married lived in Italy for a while and can speak fluent Italian. She was a swim suit model in Italy, but is now a part time model and works in a bar after she returned to Austalia. Another is a teacher. There may be one or 2 unemployed people. All the men bar one have great bodies and obviously work out. The people in the Half way house (the have nots as I call them) don't have access to the gym equipment in the house so they improvise.

I haven't watched big brother, as not a fan of Davina, but this plot sounds interesting and evil!!! (dividing them into have's and have not's!!!)
Are they just a bunch of young (mostly unemployed wannabee's ) like on UK???
I watched for about 10 mins once, they just sat around, biatched about people and talked a lot of drivel, so haven['t  got the time to watch that. Over here too there used to be someone with a broad 'Geordie' accent too, commentating which was too funny to take seriously.

There are 2 diary rooms. There is the regular diary room for the main part of the house and one for the Housemates in the 'halfway house' for the have nots. The chair in this room is a large wooden framed chair which is only half uoholstered. The cushioned upholstered part of the seat is cut in half so the layers of fabric and foam are exposed.

To have a shower in the have not section of the house requires a group effort. The shower is a rigged up to a large watering can connected to a pipe. Another person has to sit on a stationary bicycle and cycle like mad to allow cold water to flow through the pipe and the watering can. Their shower is outside the house in the open. The beds in the have not section are half size. The wooden bed frames and mattresses are half single bed size - either full length and half the width or full width and half the length. Who thinks these up?? The contestants ended up ditching the bed frames and laying the mattresses together on the floor to make up larger sleeping areas.

When all the housemates are required in the loungeroom for a group announcement, the have nots sit on basic seats in a very small section of the lounge room that is sealed off by perspex bars to the rest of the lounge room.

In another twist 2 new housemates entered the house on day 2. BB told them they had to convincingly pretend they were a married couple for a week. She is 22, he is 24 and only met before being told this. If they were not caught out before the week was up, they would be immune from eviction at the end of the week. If they were caught out and BB was told by another housemate that this couple were not married before the end of the week, they will automatically be nominated for eviction. BB had a room with a door labelled "do no enter". It was reserved for this couple as the honeymoon suite and was very richly appointed compared to the haves bedroom. It has a king bed in it, but BB told them that the beds can be separated into 2 singles. They chose not to separate the beds in order to keep up appearances. They tried to get their stories the same, but were constantly asked about how they met, how long have they been married, how was the wedding propsal done, how much did the engagement ring cost etc. They can't let their guard down.

I might have a look Margi. Great idea for a twist.

Big Brother Australia started tonight. If you are interested, the website is www.bigbrother.com.au

The show started with a twist. Each contestant had to choose a key before entering the house. Each key opened one of two doors. Depending on the door opened they entered either the have section with the pool and luxuries, or the have not section which has small beds and no hot water.

Its divided by a perspex fence. The haves had canapes and wine available to consume. The have nots had nothing.
