If the rumours are to be believed, two Big Brother contestants have finally bumped bits.
A special source has coyly told The Daily Mail today that muscle-bound intruder Leo and bubbly blonde Skye have “gone all the way” in the Australian Big Brother house.
If Big Brother’s answer to Barbie and Ken have, in fact, Done It, it will be a first for Australian Big Brother.
While contestants in other iterations of the show, including in the UK and US, have been at it for years, why has it taken 11 seasons for Australia to get here?
Sure, we had Pete and Christina “Ballerina” and the ‘dancing doona’ in season 1 in 2001 (their love is not even remembered in a youtube montage, because this was before youtube existed). Glenn the Shearer and Michelle made out like seals in the bath in Season 5 – a season which was specifically designed for getting it on, with producers choosing an all single, all 20-something cast.
Sure, there has been sexual contact previously, but no confirmed horizontal mambo. So why have the housemates apparently waited until now to do the nasty?
Is it because the contestants know that there is no forum for footage of their frolicking to be screened? There hasn’t been an ‘Uncut’ or ‘Up Late’ version since BB moved to the Nine Network in 2012. There are no longer live feeds rolling around the clock on the website – so maybe the housemates feel like they can cut loose without fear of being exposed…ahem…exposed?
