Big Brother Season 10, Episode 18 Recap

Welcome to a Big Brother episode that promises to be one that will make you shake your head in disbelief at least once. The over/under for my head shakes is five, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it reaches a full dozen.
We start with the beginning of the HOH contest, and Ollie is perplexed with Julie’s last statement before they’re swung into the padded wall. “What’s she talking about?” Memphis says he needs to win, but he’s comfortable with either Dan or Keesha winning. Ollie also says it’s a “do or die” situation, and then quotes a Tupac song that describes how he’s “all alone” in the house. That’s a phrase you may hear a few times tonight.
Instead of the person you expect to lead into the reaction to April’s eviction, it’s Michelle babbling about revenge that leads to replay of her leaving the house. Ollie whines about how April “is one of the only people I’ve let get close to me in my entire life”. Oh, please. We get it; you’re upset that the booty calls are over. Why don’t you hook up with Michelle? Ooooh, perish that visual.
Obviously, Keesha was happy to see her leave, as was Renny. “As far as I’m concerned, my HOH reign was a success.” Dan adds that her $5,000 bribe was a joke. “I’m not here for five thousand. I’m here for five hundred thousand.”
We see April whisper to Ollie that she’ll miss him, and Keesha wonders how he’ll handle the house without her. He says that his plan “is to go all the way to the end”. Um, yeah. That’s the point of the game. “I don’t think I’ve performed up to par to this point of the game, and I now have to take it to the next level.” That’s the most honest sentence you’ve had all season.
We’re back to the HOH competition, and Memphis and Keesha both babble nonsense. Dan adds that while they’re having fun, it’s still a serious game. Jerry, though, is not handling this game well and he complains about the rope “cutting into his groin”. I really don’t need to hear about that. Dan babbles something about the position of his legs helping the crotch and leg problem.
Jerry’s had enough, and he leaps to the ground. Poor old guy. He reminds Renny again that he’s 75, but “I did pretty good”. No, you really didn’t, considering you were the first down after only 30 or so minutes.
It’s now time for Michelle to complain, as she gets hit by a balloon that the others are tossing back and forth. “The innocent bystander is the one who always gets hurt.” Memphis says she needs to chill out.
We jump ahead to an hour into the competition, and Keesha suddenly drops. Memphis is not happy. “I counted on at least a decent effort from her.” She’s also upset, and hopes that Ollie and Michelle “fall on their behinds”. Her and Renny both notice that Dan’s got a serious look on his face.
We continue to see them slam into the wall, and those on the sidelines notice that Michelle’s beginning to struggle. Of course, she needs to exaggerate her pain. “It was like hitting a cement wall every time.” After another hard hit, she drops off and collapses. Well, she claims that she was “ripped off my seat”.
Ollie knows that he needs to win, and Memphis is now convinced that it’s going to work out for them. At the three hour mark, Michelle notices that Memphis is starting to struggle, and we hear him complain about the pain in his legs. Yep, moments later he falls.
It’s down to Dan and Ollie. “I won’t go home”, says Ollie as we head to commercials. When we return, Dan says that he’s “feeling pretty good” because Ollie is shaking whenever they are hit by rain. He tells Ollie that the only reason he’s still up there is his girlfriend, Monica. “I love my peeps, too, though”, Ollie responds.
Dan then asks “what do you want?” Ollie says that he wants to win, and he won’t put Dan up. Dan’s counter-offer is that he promises Ollie won’t go up, even if somebody wins the veto.
They continue to negotiate, so Dan asks “what else can I give you?” Ollie just answers “myself”. Dan claims that his goal is to appear weak, and the best way to do that is to hand Ollie all of his HOH power. “The blood this week will all be in his hands.” Um, you’re a dope.
He does just that, telling Ollie that he can protect somebody, pick a nominee, and choose the veto. WTF? Ollie can’t even believe it. In the diary room, Ollie is all smiles. Wouldn’t you?
Ollie throws out Michelle’s name, and Keesha is not happy with what she’s barely overhearing. Ollie jumps down, and in the diary room announces that we’re looking at the week seven HOH, but “I just don’t have the title, or the pictures in my room. But right now I’m calling the shots.”
Dan says in the diary room that he knows he made “one of the worst deals in Big Brother history…and I couldn’t be more excited. I feel very confident that it’s going to all work out for me in the end.” We’ll see about that.
Keesha and Memphis head into the storage room, and she informs Memphis that he “made a funky ass deal”. Memphis thinks that Dan will put up Jerry and Michelle, but Keesha’s not so sure. See, she’s not so dumb after all!
Meanwhile, Ollie is telling Michelle everything about their deal. Everything…which he wasn’t supposed to do. At first, Michelle just thinks that the deal was for Dan to be safe next week. “Nothing about next week. It’s all this week.” Michelle’s eyes almost pop out of her head. Seriously, it was similar to a Looney Tunes cartoon.
Dan admits to Memphis that he made a bad deal, but promises to tell him about it later. Memphis heads into the bedroom, and informs Renny and Keesha that he did indeed make a deal. In a diary room interview, Memphis says that he’s pissed off because he thought that his alliance with Dan was solid.
After more commercials, we get to see Dan’s HOH room. It’s a bit of a letdown after Renny’s emotional entrance last week. They all notice Monica, though, which leads Memphis to talk about how she’s got a “pretty tight chain” on him. “You wouldn’t catch me dead with a ‘taken’ shirt on.” Dan adds that the pictures of her are a reminder as to why he’s in the house. He uses the letter from her to “turn on the fake tears”. Well, he turns them on a bit too much if you ask me, but Renny is touched that he’s such a “sensitive person”.
I guess it’s time for a cheesy segment. Everybody is lying around in the living room, and Renny is perplexed that Dan can’t answer a “simple question” about how many women he’s dated. Is this old footage?
After that segment is finally over, we move on to Ollie visiting Dan in the HOH. Before he answers, Dan grabs a beer out of his fridge and says “a little bribery” to the camera. Ollie wants to reiterate the deal they made in the competition, and they both agree on Jerry. But Ollie also wants Memphis up, and Dan admits in the diary room it’s a “huge risk”.
Memphis is now shown joining Dan outside, and the first thing he asks is if Ollie was trying to get him put up. Dan sighs, and finally informs him of the deal. “He might as well be HOH”, complains Memphis. “You’re doing exactly what he wants to do, and he gets to play next week.” Dan tells him that he just has to trust him.
Keesha now joins Dan in the HOH, after we hear that “all I need is two votes”. He says he has to ensure those two votes before he puts his good friend “in the line of fire”. Keesha is asked about “solidifying” the four of them as an alliance, and she says they are the only four she cares about anyway. She admits, though, that she can’t promise that Renny will keep Memphis to the end.
Right on cue, Renny heads upstairs, and Dan jumps in on making the four “official”. Renny wants to know exactly who is the “final four”? She comes right out and says she doesn’t trust Memphis, but eventually agrees to the deal. Dan admits that Renny is the loose screw of his plan, but ends up asking her to come up with a name for their little club.
Memphis is still not happy, and tells Dan that he can’t understand why he should be put up. “Why would you put the only person in your alliance on the block? Especially when you don’t control it.” Dan responds that he has it under control.
Before we head to the final commercial break, we see Dan talking to his picture of Monica. I don’t think there’s any doubt that Dan is performing for the cameras here, as he “debates” doing what he’s supposed to do, or putting up Ollie and Michelle.
As Dan stares at the wall of pictures, we hear both Michelle and Memphis whine about Dan’s deal. What they both say has been heard earlier in the show, so there’s no need to repeat it here. Ollie also repeats what he said just a few minutes ago, and then Dan says exactly what the script wants him to say as we see him put in the keys.
Before he pulls the first key, Dan informs everybody that a deal was struck the night before. Dan, everybody already knows that. The first key belongs to Ollie, and the next ones pulled belong to Renny, Keesha, and Michelle. Dan tells Memphis that a “lot of people wonder where you stand. Some people may look at you as a vagabond. I may call you a renegade. We’ll find out.” He tells Jerry that this nomination has nothing to do with the “Judas thing”, and goes on to babble nonsense about “first downs” and “game overs”.
Jerry’s reaction is the same as last week – “it never feels good to be nominated”. Ollie says that although everybody knows there is a deal, they don’t know “how much power I have” (yes, they do). Dan babbles about “calculated risk” and their “hidden Renegade alliance”. Ugh. We see Memphis refuse a handshake as he adds how pissed that he is. “If my faith relies on Father Dan, then God help us all.”
So that’s it for tonight’s episode, but I have to add a major complaint. I’m shocked at the edits that some people received tonight. Sure, for the sake of the plot they didn’t include Memphis talking with the other three in his alliance. Fine, I get that. But what I don’t get is that ever since the HOH competition, we’ve heard nothing but hate speech from Ollie, Michelle, and Jerry. None of that was shown tonight. In fact, Michelle and Jerry were almost absent from the whole show. Maybe in place of some of the other unnecessary segments we could get one of Michelle and her wild theories. People need to see just how bonkers she is.

Ollie's arrogance in his DRs just makes me want to kick his smug face in even more. The only shots he's called this entire game are the ones that ended up on April. Oh wait, even then she told him what to do. Nevermind.

Tuesday's episode is going to off the hook, though. Seriously. Hopefully the things you felt were missing from the edit will be included, as they get into the whole "deal" fiasco.

Great rewind of the show Scott... you do an awesome job. Oh Ollie, are you in for a rude awakening. Can you believe on Thursday we are preempted for pre season football again here in the northeast.. and it won't be on until 2AM ......so of course I wll be checking in here for the drama. Dan just has to stay safe this next week and after Michelle leaves hopefully Ollie will follow in the next 20 minutes!

Get over it Scott. You didnt hear anything about memphis encouraging dan to break the deal either. You is one bias azz dude. What difference what america know, its what them houseguest know that is going to determine who is going to get the money anyway.

And as Jerry said today while talking with michelle, if dan breaks the deal, he wont get his vote even if its against memphis who he cant stand. Michelle going out the door will surely not vote for him after getting backdoored and ollie will not vote for him either. Dans done and all you jerks know it

So quoting Dan, "april im not playing for a lil money, im playing for a half a million is all bullshit. He will be playing for second. Michelle is going to keep him locked in his room anyway. and it wont be playing the sympathy role, it will be him playing the "im going to get my azz kicked role".

Did you see the same show I did? The last 20 minutes of it was Memphis complaining about Dan's deal.

Great story recape. What happened to the food comp. And did Michelle get put up . I love this site

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

People can say all they want right now about how they'll vote in the jury house, but things are a lot different when you're finally out of the game and you HAVE to pick a winner. Dan is playing a good game, whether people like him (or want to admit it) or not. At the end of the game, their jury votes have to go somewhere. Period.

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterale

yea right ale.. hes fried and you know it. we will see what you got to say after its over. pretty much nothing like you always do

just a couple days ago, you were talking about how dumb he was with the deal, now that you know hes going to break it, its how well hes doing.. whatever hepher

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

What's a "hepher"?

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterScott

Eyyy, back up chump. I still believe it was a shitty deal. EVERYONE says it's a shitty deal, but things have changed since the day he made the deal. Memphis won the Veto, and now Dan has a good chance at making a big move in getting Michelle out. Did we know the Veto results on Thursday night? No.

As far as me having nothing to say...well, you're obviously not very literate. I always have something to say.

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterale

I dunno, Scott. I don't speak idiot.

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterale

ok miss drunk of america.. youre priceless at best

August 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Memphis thinks that Dan will put up Jerry and Michelle, but Keesha’s not so sure. See, she’s not so dumb after all!(YOU DONT EVEN GET A COOKIE FOR THAT STATEMENT)

OH REALLY, AFTER SHE SIT THERE AND DAMM NEAR HEARD THE WHOLE CONVERSATION BETWEEN OLLIE AND DAN. HOW DOES THAT QAULIFY HER AS SMART. I TELL YOU WHEN YOU START TO LIKE THEM, THEY BECOME STRAIGHT A STUDENTS RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES DONT THEY... LMFAO

PLUS IF YOU THINK DAN WAS NOT CRYING FOR REAL THEN YOU ARE A COMPLETE IDIOT... HE COVERED HIS TAIL BY SAYING THAT HE WAS MAKING THEM THINK HE WAS WEAK DURING HIS DR SESSION BUT HES DONE THAT BEFORE WITH HIS DIARY SESSIONS.. I GUESS HE GOT TO MAKE THE CATHOLIC PEEPS BACK HOME KNOW HES STRONG

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THE OTHER ANON GUY, YOUR WHOLE RECAP IS ONESIDED TO SAY THE LEAST.

TO MENTIONED THAT THEY DIDNT SHAKE, WHEN YOU KNOW THEY WERE ACTING LIKE MEMPHIS WAS MAD IS ANOTHER WAY OF NOT SHOWING HOW THE GOOD IS NOT SO GOOD

IT WILL BE REAL INTERESTING TO SEE HOW YOU SHOW HOW THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT TAKING THE 75 YR OLDS MONEY WHEN THEY DONT EVEN HAVE TOO. IF IT WAS THE OTHER SIDE DOING THAT, YOU WOULD BE HAVING A DAMM FIT ON THIS BOARD TALKING BOUT IT..YOU AND YOUR CROONIES THAT AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAY

CHALK IT UP AS ONE MORE OF THEM "MAKE THE BAD GUYS MORE EVIL AND MAKE THE GOOD GUYS BETTER ANGELS"

NOW ALL YOU NEED IS YOUR 4 OR 5 YES-PEOPLE TO COME IN HERE AND STROKE YOU TO THE FINISH... LMFAO

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

OH, ONE MORE THING, THE BAD GUY OLLIE DONT DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES SO THAT PART ABOUT GIVING HIM A BEER FOR BRIBARY IS SO SO INCORRECT, PRETTY MUCH LIKE THE WHOLE RECAP... LMFAO

ALCOHOLICS GOOD GUYS 4
BAD GUYS 1

LMFAO

Wow--lots of stuff flying around here this comment session. Hmmmm...I agree, Scott...I wonder if one of the Anon peeps was watching the same show. Doesn't seem possible! I think you are right on, and I love the side comments--again. I hope Dan can stand himself breaking the deal with Ollie and put Manchelle up. That would stir things up. I'd like to see Jerry's reaction. If Dan puts Michelle up and she gets voted out, it won't matter what Ollie and Jerry say or do.

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered Commentercarrieb

A couple of points:

1. Caps-anon doesn't understand sarcasm.

2. There is no good side/bad side.

3. I have no favorites in this game. I just want Michelle out for my own sanity. After that, I could care less who eventually wins.

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterScott

excellent recap! thanks for all you do scott. i so look forward to checking in every day. can't wait for tonight...yippy skippy!

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered Commentercallie44

missed last nights episode so this recap came in very handy this morning, I see no reason to actually waste my time watching the actual episode after reading this as I enjoy reading your take on things and thus far you have been pretty fair (and funny) in your re-telling.

Thanks Scott.

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

I think Dan was BSing about fake crying. He was emotional, and those tears were real, I guess he just wanted to play it off like it was a part of his strategy. He's said stranger things in his DR sessions.

The money thing is fair game, no matter which "side" is taking it. April was talking about taking Libra's money before she left, and I don't recall anyone getting upset about that. It's part of the game, and it's not like they're robbing him of anything. No one in this game is a evil/angelic, but for some reason the PLAYERS themselves label themselves as the good, sincere people. If you don't get that we're merely making fun of that, then well...get a sense of humor.

Sincerely,
Miss Drunk of America

ps. I am so hungover. ;)

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterale

well said ale, well said!

ps, drink more, cure the hangover lol

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

Thanks for the recap...will be out of town on Thursday and can't wait to hear the drama..I will be logged on to read your recap. Drats..can't believe I am going to miss the live show! Keep up the good work.

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterdutchgirl50

drink some coffee and that hangover may go away.. Personally, i think you better stop hanging out with Michelle, gurl got stamina

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Do you people actually watch these shows? How many times have we heard someone say 'i will never vote for such and such' only to give them their vote in the end? they say things in the heat of the moment and later (in the jury) have time to think about that persons gameplay and change their minds. Btw, the whole taking jerrys money thing is bad but they said they would give it back to him. they just wanted to make him think about things a little more.

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

yea we watched it many of times... but never have we seen a guy break as many promises as dan has. People will break a deal late but he already got people hating on him and this makes it worst. we seen people be cruel but he makes deals and dont keep them..it will come back to bite him... trust me
