I LOVE this part of the Big Brother season so much! Getting to know the little hamsters and comparing them to our initial impressions pre-season. Figuring out who's aligned with who and who wants who out. Learning about their little quirks and everything else that makes them so unique.
So it's at this moment in time that I find myself sitting here with one of my headphone earbuds in listening to the oh so glorious music of FOTH (while they have the POV competition) and trying to figure out the last 16 hours or so. The premiere show itself was good last night. I had a great time chatting it up with everybody in the SH chat room waiting for the live feeds to begin. And then the feeds began.
What a downright mess that was! To be so happy and mad all at the same time was pretty damned sucktastic. If you follow me on Twitter then you know how pissed off I was. The audio on my live feeds worked when I could finally load up one of the streams but forget about the video. I felt like I was back on a dial-up internet connection! Real Networks did some tweaking to things late late last night and it does seem to have helped some for me but come on already. Give me my RealPlayer back!!!
As far as the hamsters go, we've got a pretty lively bunch so far. Not as lively as BB9 thank goodness but a good group nonetheless. There's already a showmance going on between Brendon and Rachel (that happened within 24 hours of entering the house!). Rachel was in such a giving mood last night that she even provided Brendon a little comfort down below with her hand. Speaking of Brendon and Rachel, they're are the first two to be nominated this season. I'm still not sure exactly why Hayden nominated them but their romance/sexmance seems to be part of the reason.
Andrew seems to be the outcast so far this season for a combination of reasons. He doesn't seem to have much skill in the female department and has been accidentally on purpose (haha!) been making weird comments to the girls. It didn't help his cause either when somehow his head found itself under Annie's blanket and on her crotch right before the live feeds and Big Brother After Dark began. Thanks a lot Andrew for making us listen to that wannabe mime (she really pancakes the foundation on) bitch for the first hour non-stop. But hey, at least she didn't bitch all night like I did! Zing!
The others also seem to know almost nothing about Andrew's religion so what do the hamsters do when they're ignorant about something? They make snide comments behind the person's back instead of asking questions and learning something face-to-face. If you're a politically correct singsong Sally out there, their behavior might offend you. Me? I'm watching for entertainment so I could give two hoots if they learn anything about his Judaism. Bring the perverted outcast Jew on!
Thankfully, the house isn't split up into two huge alliances battling it out mafia-style already like the past couple of seasons. There seems to three or four small alliances with some double agent action mixed in. Annie is the biggest shit-stirrer in the house so far. She's constantly flitting around telling people who said what (sometimes correctly and sometimes purposefully incorrectly) and has her nose so far up Hayden's ass she can probably smell the food he's chewing.
Kristen and Ragan seem to have a little friendship going on. Andrew wants Enzo's friendship but Enzo ain't havin' any of that bizness. Monet and Annie are definitely working against each other. Rachel and Monet definitely don't like each other. Rachel's constant nervous laugh gets on almost everybody's nerves. Kathy has taken on the role of a busted up den mother (have you seen those bruises on her arms?). Lane likes to hit on the ladies. Enzo and Britney might be battling it out to become the clown of the house this season.
And the saboteur? Who knows. The house doesn't really seem to be that interested right now in who the saboteur is. Most think it's Andrew (I highly doubt it) and seem to be gunning for him next week. He might want to think about winning that whole HOH thing. I would definitely find it hilarious if he did become the next HOH because I'd like to see them all kiss up to his outcast ass.
So what are your thoughts on things so far? Let us know in the comments!
