In a small lack of series continuity, one of the general knowledge questions was "Who was the first intruder to win Friday Night Live?". Vesna answered "Rachael", to which Gretel replied: "Correct", however, Rachael was not a intruder - she was a replacement housemate, which was confirmed by the next question: "Name the Three intruders" (The answer being Rita, Heath, and Melanie). No Intruder ever won Friday Night Live.
Gretel explained the changes made to the Big Brother house. The house is environmentally friendly, with modifications including:
- water dispensers that draw condensation from fresh air;
- recycled Australian-made fabrics used to make the diary room chair;
- showers heated by power from solar panels;
- outside furniture made from 50,000 recycled plastic Pepsi lids;
- non-allergenic 80 per cent goat-haired carpets; and
- filtered rainwater stored in water tanks in the back yard of the house.
Big Brother tells the house to welcome back David from the eviction room, when it's actually Rory that leaves first.
