the Power of 10 broadcast on the Big Brother episode all the houseguests
watched the episode together. Daniele and Amber had been instructed not to
discuss what they did prior to the broadcast of the show so this is the
first time the other houseguests discovered what they did during their
absence from the house. Daniele's father Dick was happy that Amber
did not win the big money. Daniele got teary when she
discovered her "friend" evicted houseguest Nick
Starcevic would have been helping her in the money round.
