It’s been a few days, but it’s time for me to again follow a house guest for a full day. Since it looks like Jeremy is on his way out the door, he has to be my choice today. This should be fun.
It’s a late day in the house. Nobody is up until Big Brother wakes everybody around ten. Jeremy is not initially seen when feeds come on after the wakeup call. Others do their morning rituals and a bit of laundry.
The first sight of him is at 11 as he puts a new battery in his mic pack and heads into the bathroom. Judd is the only one that acknowledges him with a good morning. They exchange a few other unintelligible things before Jeremy wanders out into the kitchen. From the looks of an occasional cam shot, he’s back in bed for awhile. Outside, Helen is threatening Judd that any vote to save Jeremy will lead to them being next out.
Shortly after, Jeremy comes out and hangs out with Judd, who attempts to give him some encouraging words. There’s more talk about the futility of the Movers, and whether Nick was really a pro skater. Jeremy doesn’t believe he was. “I’ve skated before. I know pro skaters.” Sure you do.
Jessie joins them, and Judd heads in for coffee. She attempts some idle chat, but he’s not real interested. Jessie says she doesn’t understand why he’s mad at her, and Jeremy says that he’s mad because he deserves to be there. “I don’t know how you think I bullied you.” She complains that he always lied to him, and he wants to know when. “Every single time you looked at me and mentioned Bangarang.”
Jeremy says he was just playing to stay. “I didn’t lie to your face. I just withheld information. That’s not lying. I planned on taking you all the way.” She complains he was disrespectful to him with the comments he made behind her back. Jeremy says any info she received was a lie from a Mover trying to throw him under the bus. The Movers would have gone far if they had just been loyal.
Judd returns as they continue their argument. Jessie says that it’s obvious he doesn’t want to be friends outside of the house. “Clearly, I was wrong.” Jeremy plays passive/aggressive as he claims to just be calmly trying to wake up. “It’s the same old games with you”, complains Jessie. “It’s obvious how little respect you have for me.”
Jeremy goes quiet as Jessie and Judd continue to talk, and a few minutes later Elissa comes outside to check on the laundry. “Judd, you’re the only man around here”, she says. Poke, poke, poke. “I agree”, replies Jessie. To his credit, Jeremy says nothing in reply. They also speculate about what will be shown on tonight’s CBS broadcast from Thursday’s craziness, and how they wish they could have competed in that last veto competition.
Elissa joins them again, and more small talk commences. They all talk about the previous seasons they have watched, and how Jeremy’s mom follows a bunch of Big Brother twitter accounts. Jeremy does admit that despite his mother’s love for the show, he didn’t watch until he was cast for the show. He was told by friends to lay low for the opening weeks, but that’s just not in his blood. “I’m a champion.”
This leads to Elissa asking about Jeremy’s accomplishments, and he talks about how he had sponsors to be in skateboarding videos. She wants to know if she believes that Nick was a pro or had gone to Yale. Jeremy said no. “He had history channel facts.” What? Elissa continues to poke at him about actual accomplishments, and he hems and haws. He claims to have stopped playing sports because he had to work to pay for his car. “I worked at 14 and played”, she replies. “I played everything. Tennis, basketball, cheered, gymnastics, track.” Jeremy pole-vaulted, was Little Mr. Arkansas at 6, and had the school record for one day in the high jump. Seriously? After more small talk, Jeremy heads back inside to mope around the kitchen.
As he’s cooking, Elissa comes in and again brings up Nick’s rollerblading. And again, Jeremy says there’s no way he was a pro. “I can spot a professional when I see them.” He’s an expert in rollerblading videos, and he’s never heard or seen him. “If he’s one of them, I would know. At least the name.”
Cooking completed and finally alone with Judd, Jeremy now attempts to broker a deal. He says they heard Helen screaming about him upstairs, and Judd tells him that anybody who doesn’t vote with the house is a target. Spencer is now the one who interrupts this chat, so we get more inane blabber about nothing. Judd wanders off, and talk turns to working out before Jeremy again heads inside.
Kaitlin is now up, and they hug. She’s still tired, but can’t sleep with all of the screaming. He disappears from the cams so that all of the focus can be on the dual whining of Aaryn/Kaitlin (cam 1, 2), and Helen (cam 3,4). Seriously, her non-stop pontificating is getting old.
Jeremy then heads outside to work out, and wanders back into the bathroom area as McCrae. “Your husband is a pussy”, he says under his breath. With the mic off, he continues to bitch about various people to Aaryn, who is lounging on the bathroom bench. He jumps in the shower as Kaitlin joins them to gossip some more.
He disappears from the cams for a couple of hours, and then is surprisingly seen sitting outside with Andy! It’s the usual silly Andy chat about nothing, but Jeremy says he’s hoping for special moneyprize comp before his eviction. Good luck with that one. Luckily for us feedwatchers, this doesn’t last long. Again, though, they can hear Helen (and GinaMarie) screaming from the HOH room.
He heads back into the bathroom area to make more small talk with Judd and others before wandering around the house. Back outside, he munches on snacks with Judd and McCrae. It’s again meaningless, but McCrae makes a joke that Jeremy should campaign to get GinaMarie put up so that she can be reunited with Nick.
After a bit, he gets up and wanders around some more before jumping in the pool with Aaryn. Kaitlin joins them, and as usual she wraps herself around him. GinaMarie joins them, and is still babbling about Nick. Apparently, all of the little knick knacks she’s been finding that belong to him was left there on purpose for her to cherish!
The lovebirds then cuddle on the hammock, and she reports on a conversation she had with Andy about life after Jeremy’s departure. He’s actually a bit reassuring, saying he doesn’t want to leave her. Kaitlin is convinced that they’re making Big Brother history, although she has never seen the show. He teases her that she’ll forget him after he leaves, especially when she moves to Vegas. Her response is that while she was a “11” in Minneapolis, she’ll only be a “4” in Vegas.
Everybody is then called in for photobooth pics, which in my eyes is a big waste of time. He poses with his key, and GinaMarie comes in accompanied by all of Nick’s junk. For Kaitlin’s pic, she sits on Jeremy’s lap with her key in her mouth. Methinks plenty of things have been in that mug.
Picture time over, they move into the kitchen to cook dinner. Scintillating stuff, right? They then plop themselves down on the outdoor couch for more babbling. He does claim that he can give away his “Never Not-Have” pass, but there’s little doubt that’s not the case.
Oh wait, I didn’t catch this the first time around. They were talking about the flies hovering around them, and Jeremy said, “I’m African. We’re used to it.” There was more talk about African tribes, which led Andy and Howard to get up and leave. (Not the most offensive thing said in the last three weeks, but probably not smart after all of the controversies.)
They move into the bedroom, and Jeremy is horny. He’s pretty much attacking her, even as she wants to go through her clothes. Jeremy wants to go shirtless for his eviction show. Kaitlin doesn’t think that’s a great idea. Ugh, I just can’t carry on with this part of the day.
It was time for the CBS broadcast, so I focused my attention on that for the next hour. A quick replay found that Jeremy and Kaitlin spent that hour playing around with each other. The only thing said of consequence was Jeremy’s story about walking into a Wal-Mart and stealing a cart full of goods. Classy. When the network show was over, they were playing pool...and groping each other between shots. Kaitlin eventually heads inside to get a pep talk...I mean threat from Helen, and Jeremy continues to play pool and air box.
With outside fun over, they now crawl into bed and start making out. They go back to their main topic of Kaitlin whining about being the person responsible for Jeremy’s upcoming eviction. Jeremy would rather keep making out, and to ensure this happens says he will be waiting for her at the finale. I hope you don’t mind that I zoned out as they did nothing but tell each other how great they are, and how CBS clearly thinks they’re awesome. Won’t they be surprised when they’re out of the house? Oh, one more tidbit - Jeremy wants the two of them to get matching tats.
Amanda eventually comes into the room to fold laundry, leading to some awkward but harmless banter back and forth. “Jeremy is like an everlasting bacteria” she says. “You just can’t get rid of him.” He tries on one of McCrae’s sleeveless shirts “for eviction day”, but it obviously doesn’t fit. Jeremy leaves the room, and Amanda gives Kaitlin a pep talk similar to what others have been telling her all day.
During his time off camera, for some reason (i.e. attention) Jeremy dressed up as a baby. Fitting, actually. It must have something to do with the trashy dress up party that’s going on in the HOH, but all I can do is shrug about what NerdHerd 2.0 does. It then becomes the Aaryn and Andy story time as they wait for the fashion show. It finally happened, and it was as awful as I predicted.
Strangely, Jeremy and Amanda concocted a fake story that they were actually brother and sister, and if they made it to week four they would get $25,000. Most people just ignored them, but there was still some talk afterwards.
After a long, lazy day, we finally get some action around 9:24 PM. Still dressed in his baby costume, Jeremy sat down with McCrae and Amanda to plead to keep him. He’ll do whatever it takes to stay, including nominating their picks for them when he inevitably wins HOH next week. “You know, my people, we are champions. I can promise I’ll never put you up.” For some reason, he does a handstand across the yard to entice them. It does him no good, though.
The rest of the night is pretty uneventful. Kaitlin had a private chat with Howard, which set off red flags for Aaryn and Jeremy. Judd also gets an earful. Even Andy gets a taste of Jeremy’s whining, which is good for a change of pace, but it also really goes nowhere. The night ends with group chats about nothing, and lots more making out with Kaitlin.
That’s it for a long, long day not only for Jeremy but for me. What did you think of this writeup? Are you ready for Jeremy to hit the road? Tell us your thoughts!
