Friendship Returns To The HOH!

I had just posted my eviction article when the Big Brother doorbell rang. Yes, it was the return of Paul!!! And Pablo, too!

This is so much better than stupid Jeff. Paul is actually funny, and knows how to ad-lib. "Just found out you evicted an asshole", he shouted, "so they brought in a bigger asshole!" Everyone in the house was excited...except for Shelby who had no idea who he was.

Neeley in particular was thrilled. "You're looking sick, daddy." When he saw the box of condoms on the table, he asked who was boning. Danielle did not answer. He then got a tour of the house, and made a joke about how easy the have-nots have it this season as he could fit his entire family on one of those trampolines. He then pointed to his fifth tip on the board - "no showmances". Yes, we agree.

He was also asked who won his season, but before entering the house he had stated he wasn't going to reveal that piece of information. Jason later stated that because it was him coming in to host a comp so early in the season he must not have won.

The feeds then went down for fifteen minutes or so as the cast was brought out into the yard and given instructions from production. When they returned, we discovered the competition was called "Perfect Shot", and it was a modified (i.e. cheaper) version of last season's ball roll competition.

The big difference is that in this version not only is there only one rolling platform but they have to earn their rolls. Hundreds of balls were then rained on to the backyard, and some of them contain tokens. They could then exchange their tokens for balls. Due to her punishment in the golf comp, Alex had to wear "beer goggles" to blur her vision.

It takes some time for anybody to attempt some rolls, as they were pocketing the tokens as they found them. At one point, Neeley informed Paul that she's single, but she wasn't the only flirtatious one in the house. Later on, Morgan winked at him and said, "I like balls.". It wasn't until the twenty minute mark, Justin became the first to exchange some tickets. Shortly afterwards, everybody was doing the same.

Few people land anything close to the "bucket" at the end of the platform. Even those who make it all the way across tended to toss it too hard. Danielle, in particular, comes very close a number of times. Justin actually hit the little bucket but it bounced off the side.

The game then passed the 30 minute mark. If it was to go past one hour they were going to have some sort of different rules to follow. It was right around this time that Kryssie came to the table with ten balls, and in the most surprising moment of the season Kryssie nails it and is the new HOH!

This will create some good drama this week, but there's nothing I hate more than hypocrisy. Remember how upset Neeley got when she saw Shelby celebrating America's nominee? Now she was dancing around and singing "who's that bitch?" Remember Kryssie just an hour earlier decrying Scott using a backdoor to evict Shane? Well now she wants to backdoor Alex?

That's really about it for last night's activities, except for a weird moment when we find out that Kryssie's boyfriend had created a "hair bracelet" out of his own hair and some he gathered from her hairbrush. What???

It should be an interesting week. Like her or not, a power change is always good to rev up the feeds. Who do you want to see get voted the  ACP, as Have-Nots, or America's nominee?

The Third Evictee Is...

That was a bit anticlimactic. Well, the actual eviction was, but it got entertaining afterwards. But we'll get to that in a second.

First I need to update you on what happened at the POV meeting. Alex did not use her veto, but Justin took down Kryssie (as planned). Scott replaced her with Shane, just as they had planned all week.

Also, this is the first night that I've been a bit disappointed with the weekly recap "episode". It was edited like a typical summer CBS broadcast. There were a few fluff sequences, and Danielle was given a completely unrealistic sympathetic edit. We didn't see any evidence of the types of things that were annoying not just the "other" side, but her own alliance and the online viewers. Her becoming a Have-Not wasn't mentioned, nor her childish reaction. Getting America's Nomination did seem completely out of the blue, which was clearly not the case for those of us watching at home.

Just like in the past weeks, the moment the recap was finished we went right to the eviction. Neeley gave the first final plea, and simply said she can't possibly "campaign against my friends". Danielle said hi to her son, and then talked about how lucky she was to have met Shane.

Then it got a bit interesting. Lame Shane stood up and started babbling about how great his Late Night Jamboree pals were, and how they were a real family. If/when he's evicted he's not going to hug a single one of them. According to him, neither Alex or Scott have a chance to win the game since they've gone after him. Well, they probably won't win but it's not for that reason.

When he was finished, Scott actually made a funny. "Monte felt the same way."

Voting then began with Alex, who voted against Shane, as did Whitney. Kryssie and Justin then voted to evict Danielle, but this was countered by Morgan. Jason then voted against Danielle, but Shelby very happily went against Shane.

That makes the vote 4-3 in favor of Shane, but when Scott returned he announced it was a tie. Obviously, that means America voted to evict Danielle (see why that edit was silly?). Scott then had to break the tie, and as he started to explain what he was going to do Shane said "don't". "Danielle, you have never broken your word to me", Scott then said. "Shane, when you drank the blue potion, I knew you were either going to be my friend or my enemy. I vote to evict you."

Shane then kissed Danielle and said, "I'll wait for you" before hugging the rest of his alliance. He then took off to the great unknown. The girls then began crying. Well, at least the girls on his side. Kryssie was furious. "Scott is not a man", she later said when she was alone. He's a scared little boy."

Ok, I'm jumping the gun a little bit because Scott did ask Kryssie if she wanted a hug after Shane was gone. She declined as she is pissed at that speech. "He's a human being", she whined. Scott actually tried to smooth things over by reminding her that this is a game, and that afterwards she hopes that they will all be friends. Her response is that he'll see what it's like when he's on the block. She's particularly pissed that he was backdoored, which n Kryssie's world I guess isn't ok.

It's a bullshit scenario. Scott had a plan, and he and his alliance perfectly executed it. Even though she's bitching that Scott is not playing a good game, he's done a lot more so far than she has. And that is coming from something who DESPISES Scott.

The new HOH comp is starting any minute now, so you're bound to see another post soon. Join us online!!!

Big Brother Gossip #703: Puppy Tears

Last week's show was dominated by the various idiotic things that Monte did and said. With his eviction, we were forced to find another twit full of silly fodder. 

Well, that wasn't hard. While we've been a critic of Danielle from almost the very beginning, she took the crown this week. Besides being voted a have-not and nominee by America this week, her house conversation reached a whole new level of dumb these past few days. 

Need some examples? How about the fifteen minutes she spent running down each and every one of her birthday? Or how she intends to save up her child support money for a trip to the Bahamas on her 25th birthday? What about the tragic tale of her puppy who starved to death primarily because she wasn't intelligent enough to care for him?

We talked about all of these issues, along with so much more on tonight's episode. As always, there's plenty of impassioned rants from Colette, which is always the perfect sign that this is a keeper of a broadcast.

Most importantly, we all give a lesson thinking of the big picture. We perfectly analyze why certain people need to stick around for a few more weeks even if they are indeed the worst people in the world. Hopefully, you have all learned that you shoudl take Colette's voting tips to heart. She is thinking of the overall good of the feeds - chaos, controversy, and clusterfucks!

As always, you can listen to this show from the usual online sources, including:

Is America's Nominee Once Again Doomed?

What a glorious day of live feeds!

The day started with the announcement of America's nominee. Yes, it was Danielle. And yes, there was some good fun at this meeting, which also included the POV draw. Justin and Alex joined Scott, Neeley, Kryssie, and Danielle.

The fireworks began almost immediately as Neeley noticed the girls celebrating in the bathroom. How dare they? She was fuming as she related the story in the bedroom. "I'm about to rip her ass off and hand it to her", she fumed. "Took everything and the angels and Jesus Christ to stop me from jumping on the back of her neck. She's being way too ignorant, and real reckless right now."

Jason attempted to clarify what happened, so she carried on. Kryssie and her saw them celebrating as they were warming up their tea in the microwave. Those "bitches just ran to the bathroom, and started shimmying and all this bullshit." At some point, the word heifers was thrown in there. Good stuff.

It took almost an hour, but the expected whine session from Danielle also finally kicked off. "I don't understand why America wants to keep people like that in this game", she said. "After Neeley came in here, it took everything in her not to go punch Shelby in the face. I don't understand why I'm constantly being targeted, and now America made me a have-not and nominated me in the same week. My whole life I have been bullied and made fun of by girls like that. I have a thick skin and can take the passive aggressive thing from the girls but my biggest fear coming into the house was America not liking me."

When they all headed outside, there was a curtained off area with buzzers facing it. One cam showed the view behind the curtain which was puzzle pieces and platforms to place them. On a table were the three different types of vetoes, and a lengthy card of instructions for Jason to read. "It has paragraphs on it", he said just before the feeds went to fish. (This is done for production to provide them some information.)

It's a knock-out type puzzle comp. One person challenges another, and the first to complete their puzzle moves on to the next round. If the person who buzzes in is wrong, they are eliminated and their competitor moves on. Game pieces are also reset between rounds.

Scott then announces he's choosing the double veto. Jason then pulls the order of players in this round, which is Kryssie, Danielle, Scott, Neeley, Justin, and Alex. Kryssie chooses to go against Alex, and it took just a minute or so for Alex to win. Danielle then challenged Scott, and it took a bit longer but Danielle wins this round.

Since Scott was taken out, it's Neeley's turn to challenge, and she picks Alex. They both fly through it, but Alex again wins. Justin challenges Danielle (somewhat surprisingly), and he wins! This doesn't look good for the showmance. She hides behind the rest of the cast and begins to cry as Shane attempts to comfort her. "Why wouldn't he fucking throw it to me? That's bullshit."

Round two commences with Alex picking Justin. Wait, aren't they the two POV winners? There's some confusion, and then it's announced that they indeed both won the POV.

As they came back in the house, a tearful Danielle attempted to head to the diary room, but instead buried herself under the covers as the "plastics" celebrated in the kitchen. She knows that Justin picking her to compete against indicates he's not going to use it on her. In fact, he's obviously now working with Scott. "He's fucking retarded." Shane says he just doesn't understand the game, and he expects to be backdoored.

The Initial Nominees!!!

Part one of Scott's plan to evict either Shane or Danielle is now complete. The second safety ceremony just happened, the four saved were Morgan, Shane, Danielle, and Shelby.

The plan to evict included saving them? Yes, thanks to the double veto situation, the two targets were saved with these initial nominees. Instead, Neeley and Kryssie were nominated as pawns.

After practicing his speeches for most of the day, Scott told Neeley he has respect for her, and he wished her luck in the POV competition. For Kryssie, he said they were the two "mental giants" in the game, but they have "different approaches". Because she has issues with "certain group situations" he was nominating her.

Nobody is surprised by what just happened, but that probably won't stop Kryssie from whining all night long about it. (Almost immediately she blamed the nomination on yesterday's dirty
underwear incident.) Her constant babbling, along with Danielle bitching about slop and the other girls, will completely be in line with this entire season of complaining and shit-talking.

What are your thoughts on this? Who are you picking to be America's nominee? We're going with Danielle. We'll have plenty to say about all of this on tomorrow night's Big Brother Gossip Show!!!

Updates on ACP, Have-Nots, and the First Safety Meeting

It's been a couple of days since the last update, so I thought I'd explain a few of the things that has happened since Scott won HOH:

1. Immediately after the win, Scott informed the "plastics" that they were safe. He's also not interested in evicting Kryssie as that would be a waste of his HOH. He really is targeting Shane and Danielle, but not just because Alex failed to do so last week. He's angry at Shane for dumping the all-male alliance (Cornbread, Monte, Shane, and Scott) the moment he hooked up with Danielle, and last weekend's attempt to blame Scott for the Monte/Justin fight didn't help her cause.

2. Justin has made a couple of surprising friends. Remember when Monte went after Justin for dropping his drawers in the bathroom? It must not have offended Morgan as much as he thought, as they've become a bit friendly the last few days. Justin also has a secret alliance with Scott, and the two meet up at least once a day for a quick chat.

3. It hasn't been a good week for Danielle. Well, Wednesday night was good as her and Shane played hide the pickle in the middle of the night. It must not have been THAT good, though, as she replied that she wasn't sure when Shane asked if she came. Ooops. She has also angered most of her late night jamboree pals for various reasons, including the fact that she's only interested in talking about herself. Thursday night she also had a shocking story about how her dog died.

4. America's Care Package was awarded to Scott. It's a convoluted prize that allows him to pick what type of veto they'll be playing for this week. He has to choose from a diamond veto (winner gets to pick not only who they use it on but who goes up in their place), double veto (two vetoes in play), or "boomerang" veto (winner can remove two people). At the moment, he's utilizing the double veto, and it's forced him to rethink his nominations. The current plan is for Kryssie and Neeley to be "pawns", and anybody brought down will be replaced by Shane or Danielle (or, hopefully, both).

5. Today saw the reveal of this week's Have-Nots. Even before the announcement, Danielle was whining that it better not be her. Well, it was, along with Shelby and Alex. Danielle immediately made plans with Shane to still sleep together. "Thanks America", she sarcastically babbled. Shelby made some wisecracks on how she's not going to make Danielle any slop, but Alex is taking it with good humor as it's another feather in her superfan hat. Justin also was entertaining during this segment. He had started cooking chicken right before the meeting was called, and he was really nervous he'd be a have-not. He kept his fingers crossed as Scott read the announcement, and immediately jumped around when his name was not read off. "I'm gonna eat the fuck out of this chicken!"

6. Over the course of the last few days, there's been a little game between the Plastics and Misfits. Jason started it by hiding Shelby's Krackel bars, and today the girls did the same with the soda. It was all fun and games until somebody touched Kryssie's dirty underwear. She spent a good half hour crying and bitching about it. Of course, she giggled when Jason was rubbing his armpits on the girls' pillows.

7. The first safety picks were made by Scott. Due to losing a game against Morgan a half hour earlier, Justin had to wear her bikini top during the ceremony. Justin was the first named, followed by Alex, Whitney, and Jason. Shane knows he's the target, but he's not as smart as he thinks he is by saying that. No, Shane, you won't be initially going up. And no, Kryssie, you're not going to get backdoored. It's the other way around.

Tomorrow night sees the rest of Scott's safeties (probably Morgan, Shelby, Shane, Danielle), which obviously leads us to his initial nominee picks of Neeley and Kryssie. We'll be talking about all of this and more on Monday night's Big Brother Gossip Show. You better listen!!!

This Scott Publicly Wished The Other Scott Wasn't HOH. You'll Never Guess What Happened Next

A little less than 20 minutes after Monte's eviction, everybody was called outside for the HOH competition. Tonight's comp is called "BB Barcode". There's a giant optical illusion barcode in the backyard. Each round is 15 minutes long. They have a measuring tool, and they have to guess which numbered piece of the barcode is the longest.

After hearing the rules, all I could think of is "what the hell?" It really doesn't make a lot of sense. I would imagine that the difference between some of them are in centimeters. They all ran on to the playing field just before the buzzer sounded. Then there was silence as they all began pacing up and down, let's call it a tarp.

After a few minutes, people began guessing. Shelby was wrong with 195, and Jason was right behind her with 147. Danielle and Kryssie began chatting about how two of the segments had only one chain-length difference, and their conversation carried on to Neeley and Shane. Her suggestion was to use the chain measuring device instead of pacing. At one point, they asked production if they could use the chain of somebody who was out of the round. The answer was no, but Shane and Danielle then began working together.

Scott was then out with a guess of 88. Suddenly Danielle then raced over and rang in with 22, which was also wrong. Shane was also incorrect with 171. Neeley is now out of the running with 187. The round then ended with no guess from Justin or Kryssie.

Since nobody was correct, they all got to continue on with round two. Shane and Danielle were now completely working together, as was Morgan and Whitney. Jason quickly chimed in with 54 (wrong), and Danielle with 147 (also wrong). Shane's attempt rang in at 197 (incorrect). 21 is also not correct, as Morgan discovered. Justin finally made an attempt, and 11 was not what Big Brother was looking for. Whitney's 123 thankfully disqualifies her, as does Shelby's 101. Neeley's 151 is also not right. Scott chooses 73, and Kryssie ends this round with 174.

Justin kicks off round three with 158 (nope). Neeley repeats 171, and if it didn't work the first time it certainly doesn't now! Funny thing is that right after the camera began focusing on the 72 board, Scott chimed in with that guess and won HOH!!! (Ugh)

Well that didn't go as I hoped, but oh well. Are you happy? Who will Scott nominate? Let's have a chat.
