As the outside world wrestles with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the houseguests have received written messages, letters from home letting them know their loved ones are okay.
They are also receiving regular coronavirus updates from Big Brother.
When the feeds returned after going dark on Sunday afternoon, Susanne and Hira spoke about their letters and the state of the world.
“It is a good time to get these,” said Hira mentioning that in his letter, message his wife was so “extra” as he tried to lighten the mood.
Susanne agreed with Hira that receiving messages from their loved ones made everyone appreciate the outside world and the people in their lives even more than they already do.
The news about how many people have been affected by the virus brought both Hira and Susanne to tears.
“I broke down when I heard the numbers. I feel so helpless in here,” said Susanne wiping tears from her eyes.
“So, in Italy nobody can leave their homes?” asked Hira.
“They said everyone is quarantined,” replied a downcast Susanne.
Angie came over clutching her message, letter hugging both Hira and Susanne.
“You got your answer about your family back home,” said a smiling Hira to Angie.
Angie told Hira and Susanne she was thankful to the producers and that it was so good to know that her sister was on top of things back home.
“It is crazy up in here,” sighed Suzanne.
“I could read this a thousand times,” said Angie staring at her letter, message and smiling.
In the hot tub, Carol, Chris, Minh-Ly and Vanessa reflected on what an emotional day it had been.
“What time to be in the Big Brother house and quarantined when there is a pandemic in the world,” said Minh-Ly.
“It is the perfect place to be,” replied Chris.
This weekend saw HoH Sheldon nominate Rianne and Madeline for eviction but Madeline won the Power of Veto and will assuredly take herself off the block. Sheldon has talked about nominating Minh-Ly in Madeline’s place.
