Celebrity Mom Elisabeth Rohm Partners with Upromise by Sallie Mae to Bring Greater Awareness of the Importance of Saving for College
“What a shocker! I was not prepared for Louie to leave. Wow.” said Abz in the diary room clearly surprised at the result. Big Brother did try and cheer the housemates up though with an awards ceremony. This has become a sort of ritual for BB now, and it is always entertaining to see the results. ‘Funniest’ and then ‘Most Entertaining’ housemate were given to Charlotte who was delighted. She celebrated by pulling her dress up and flashing her pants for the whole world to see. True to form it was very funny and entertaining! Mario was then awarded ‘Sexiest Housemate’. He looked quite chuffed at the result and even said, “In your face Lucy!” AWKWARD. I am sure his ex-girlfriend LOVED that. But the most ungrateful winner was Lauren as she did not appreciate the award she received. Fair enough, it was not the most appealing of the night, but ‘Biggest Game Player’ is better than nothing, right?
