He tells Big Brother that he hasn’t met a girl “that I thought was pretty and with a cool personality, but at the same time a playful personality.” He says that he normally tires quickly of girls but doesn’t think this would happen with Danica who is always nice to him. “Then again, if she does that for a living,” he remarks and tells Big Brother he has a fear of being “played.” He mentions how close they were physically when he was helping to remove the cake from her hair and face. “I guess I feel like she’s’ my kryptonite and I’m Clarke Kent, she will be the death of me.”
Big Brother announces to the housemates that this week’s nominations will be happening shortly. The housemates are shocked and gather on the sofas as instructed. “Whoever gets nominated, no-one take it personally, it’s a game,” Martin encourages. As they prepare to nominate Julie looks stunned, “This is horrible,” she worries. Big Brother tells housemates that they must each choose one housemate to nominate and must do so face to face.

Harvey is the third housemate to nominate and chooses Danica as he equates the word “celebrity with genuine talent, I don’t know what she does,” he states.

Big Brother announces that with three nominations each, Jasmine and Rhian will face the public vote. As the housemates disperse Jasmine questions: “Is that’s what it’s like when you’ve got kids, I’m her for my kid?!” Some of the housemates console Rhian, Martin reminds her, “It’s a game.” Jasmine is sitting alone in the smoking area.
It’s been 12 minutes since Jasmine that she is facing the public vote. The rest of the housemates are reeling at tonight’s events. “I’m shocked at Julie,” Coleen admits and says that she has never said that she is missing her family.
Rhian joins Jasmine in the garden, “It’s you and me missy, we’re in it together,” she sighs. She tells Jasmine that she expected to be up alongside Danica. Jasmine becomes upset and starts, “I put in so much time and effort,” referring to some of the people who nominated her. Harvey joins them and Jasmine begins to cry. “I think she’d more upset about their reasons,” she comments. Jasmine rants: “I explained to that f***er why I’m here, its f**ked-up (to nominate) for the people doing it for their kids!” she shouts. Ashley is sitting with them and quips: “The game has started.”
Prince Lorenzo is in the living area and has noticed that Jasmine is upset. “Shall I go and talk to her?” he asks and heads outside. Jasmine is in the midst of telling housemates that she feels “betrayed,” particularly by the Prince just as he walks towards her. He asks to speak with her and she refuses. “F**k-off you p***k!” she shouts and he is clearly shocked. “I know you came here to get paid.” When Prince Lorenzo returns to the house Jasmine tells her housemates: “Honestly, they’re the last people I expect to vote for me!”
Jasmine is in the toilet with Julie and can be heard sobbing as Julie comforts her and encourages her rejoin the housemates. “Let’s go in together, f**k ‘em all, stand tall girl,” Julie incites. Prince Lorenzo is talking to Julian about the game. He says that he would never have done the show if he knew he would upset people. “I’m not here to ruin anyone’s life, she thinks I’ve totally betrayed her,” he adds.
Julie and Jasmine have come into the diary room. Jasmine is still upset and Julie continues to look after her. “I’ve tried hard to work on my character defaults, I didn’t let myself down in the way that people expected, in that respect, I’m proud,” Jasmine sobs. “I’m so grateful for you right now,” she tells Julie who tells her that they are “mates” and she is happy to look out for her. As they exit the diary room Jasmine jokes: “This has definitely got to be the worst Friday night I’ve had in ages,” and Julie agrees.
Some of the housemates are in the bedroom. Danica explains to Jasmine why she nominated her. “I knew you would voter for me but that’s not why I nominated you,” she adds. Jasmine says that she wasn’t upset that Danica opted for her “but those two idiots!” she comments while pointing to the living area. Danica implies that they are similar and Jasmine remarks, “We’re very different, I don’t wanna have this conversation,” and waves her away. “I came here to check that you were okay,” Danica tells her and Jasmine disputes this. “You change!” Danica remarks and leaves the room.
Rhian is in the diary room. “Jasmine made a few people uncomfortable by the way she reacted,” she starts. She mentions that how Jasmine spoke to Prince Lorenzo was “was intimidating and scary,” adding: “He’s a Prince, you don’t talk to a Prince like that,” and says that Jasmine “switched.” “She was a completely different person, I would like to get on the wrong side of her,” she adds.
Samantha and Jasmine are having a heart-to-heart. “You’ll turn it around, you’re lovely,” Samantha tells her. “You are too, I can’t believe you wrote (those articles), I think when you’re writing, it’s not really Samantha.”
In the garden Coleen and Martin discuss life in the house so far. Coleen likens it to being on holiday and Martin mentions tonight’s events. “I find it really silly, the show is driven to make us talk about each other,” he muses. “My natural reaction is to say that that’s an over reaction,” Coleen tells him referring to Jasmine’s actions. Martin mentions that Jasmine said his reasons for nomination her were and “easy option” but Coleen tells him that she would have said the same thing if she had voted for Jasmine.
Some of the housemates are in the garden. Jasmine announces: “I’m stunned that prostitute lasted longer than I did, if I get kicked out I’ll make a wish list,” she laughs.
Prince Lorenzo has come to the diary room and is talking about Jasmine. “It was not my intention to hurt Jasmine,” he starts and tells Big Brother that he was “shocked by the way in transpired.” The Prince is troubled by Jasmine’s outburst following nominations, “I was called all sorts of names,” and says that Jasmine was shocked and angry. “I expect Jasmine will be a little bit better tomorrow but there will be no communication. It will be unstable for however long we stay, there will be a black cloud starting from tomorrow,” he fears.
