Which influencers went home on ‘The Reality House’ Episode 1?
For their first challenge, the contestants had to search buckets filled with flour and find one bean. Then, they had to give the bean to Kian and JC to receive a thumb-tack to pop one of ten balloons.
If the balloon contained flour, the contestant is one of the ten people who get to move in the house. If the balloon does not contain any flour, they must run back and find another bean. The last male and female contestants are eliminated and are unable to go into the house.
Unfortunately, Brittany “Kombucha girl” Broski and Yousef “Fouseytube” Erakat could not find a bean, and they were the first two contestants purged from the competition.
