The Night Owl

I don't particularly know where to start tonight.  I really thought this would be a recap where I talked about being disappointed over Nick getting evicted (which I am) and poked a little fun at GinaMarie's reactions to it (and I will get there...trust me), but SO much more has happened tonight that my brain feels like mush.  I will try to explain it all, but there is a lot to tell.

 So, the live eviction goes about as we expected it. Howard and Jeremy were the only members of the MC to vote to keep Nick, and Howard knew that he was going home anyway.  When Nick left we heard the sobs we all knew were coming from GinaMarie.

When the feeds returned, GinaMarie was sitting sobbing and blowing her nose into Nick's shorts (I'm not kidding) while wearing his hat and talking about how if she just had ONE more week with him then he would have wanted her and they would have been together.  She threw out a bunch of other stalkerish lines like "You guys don't know what we had together alone when it was just us" and one of my favorites "How do I know he won't find a girl at home? How do I know he is gonna wait for me?".  At first I thought to myself..."My gosh, I've never met someone so completely unaware of reality.", but then I remembered Aaryn, and boy did she prove her delusions tonight!

 

 

While GinaMarie was still crying in her bed and lamenting her sorrows to Aaryn and Kaitlin, Jessie had the audacity to tell her that she was very sorry this had to happen.  GinaMarie told Jessie it was her fault that Nick was gone and then the fighting started from there.  First there was a squabble between GinaMarie, Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jessie about the bed situation.  Jeremy and Kaitlin had taken over the bed where Jessie and Judd had been sleeping.  Jeremy and Kaitlin didn't ask, they just did it and then proceded to imply that Jessie was a slut.  Well..it wasn't really just implied.  Aaryn flat out called her one. Judd came into the room to see what was going on between the girls and before he could even say anything Kaitlin Screamed "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY ROOM, JUDD" (even though it's actually the room where HE sleeps and Kaitlin does not).   Judd grabbed Jessie and they went upstairs for Helen's HOH reveal.

 

 

At some point while everyone else was enjoying Helen's HOH reveal, downstairs Aaryn and Kaitlin (with GM still in the room sobbing into Nick's dirty shorts) flipped over Candice's bed and threw her clothes around the room.  I'm not sure why they did it. I missed that part, but when Candice came back downstairs she wasn't happy about it.  When she first came in the room Kaitlin said something smart to her and that was all it took. Candice said something about them flipping her bed and Aaryn was off and running with the racial slurs all over again.  Candice was mostly calm at first, but Aaryn kept snapping at her and making "the black girl voice" to mock her while telling her "she wants to see that black side come out".   Candice eventually started to lose it, and when GinaMarie chimed in with more nonsense, Candice snapped at GM and GM jumped up off the bed and got into Candice's face AGAIN with more racial slurs.  At this point I think Candice probably would have hit GinaMarie if Howard had not very LITERALLY picked Candice up and dragged her out of the room.

 

 

Once Candice and Howard were in the other room, Howard calmed her down a little telling her that he could not control his temper and needed her to stop so she didn't get kicked out of the game.  She went upstairs and confided in Helen and Elissa while Howard stayed downstairs and sobbed in the room alone.  I won't lie to you guys, I had a REALLY hard time watching that happen.  It's the first time watching the BB feeds has ever been emotionally painful for me.

Meanwhile, Amanda had heard that the girls were being mean to Jessie again, and indeed they were.  While Candice was upstairs, they were all railing on her for being a slut and being with Judd now as her "last and 5th choice when everyone else rejected her".  Amanda came in the room and started defending Jessie and saying "let's just ALL clear the air.  Aaryn was not having it so Amanda decided to rat everyone in the room out about each other and what they had all said behind each other's backs.  She told Kaitlin about Aaryn's problems with her and all the mean things she says about her and vice versa.  She told Jessie what they say about her.  Aaryn still balked and told Amanda she was being ridiculous and so Amanda then told Aaryn how she was trying to help her by helping her to stop talking shit behind her alliance's back and stop being portrayed as a racist.  Well of COURSE in Aaryn's mind this isn't actually happening because "she never said one single racist thing ever" so Amanda and Candice are making it all up.  This fight went on for a while and finally ended with Amanda storming off.

 

 

After that fight was over, there were a few smaller tiffs between the mean girls group while Helen and Elissa celebrated upstairs.  Howard and Spencer kind of scrambled around together trying to decide what to do now.  Very clear lines seem to have been drawn now that Nick is gone and the MC alliance is a bust.  Andy, Amanda, McCrae, and Judd are together.  Elissa, Helen, Candice, Jessie and Andy are together (Andy is in almost all the alliances lol), and BlondeTourage still consists of GinaMarie, Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jeremy.  When Spencer came to Howard and McCrae and wanted to vote Nick out earlier today (not knowing McCrae was going to anyway) he thought that he would still be with MC, but they would have just ditched one member. That turned out not to be the case.  Howard and Spencer are now sort of floating along together without any real home.  Everyone agreed to not let on that the are no longer welcome in the alliance, but it's pretty obvious that they are on their own.

 

 

A bit later, Amanda tried again with Aaryn.  She tried gently approaching what was wrong with what Aaryn was saying and doing in the house, but Aaryn again managed to turn herself into a victiim.  She cried and claimed that she is afraid that people are going to believe she is racist "when she never said one racist thing and Candice just makes stuff up".   McCrae also jumped in on this one and told her she needed to humble herself and stop acting the way she was acting.  Amanda told her that it was her actions that got people like Nick and David who should still be there evicted, because if her alliance wasn't so awful due to her behavior, they might have actually been working together.   Aaryn of course didn't let any of it sink in, but many of you will be happy to know that she did spend a good amount of time crying in the bathroom about it.  I'm sure it was for selfish reasons, but I still take some pleasure in it.

Meanwhile, GinaMarie STILL dressed in Nick's clothes and hat and blowing her nose into his shorts was making sobbing whaling noises like a dying animal.  That's the only way I know to describe it.  I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this. It's SO much worse than Jessie's funeral in season 11.  Several people have told her that it "isn't like Nick died. He just got evicted". But there is no consoling her.  She has even been wondering out loud if she could possibly get on the same flight as Nick if she self evicted now.  I so wish I were joking when I say that...but I'm not.

 I thought things were gong to wind down a bit and I might be able to put my tired BB'd out ass to bed when McCrae decided it was time to drop the MC bomb on Amanda and Andy.  He told them that there WAS indeed a guys alliance and told them all about how it was formed and how he turned on the alliance.  He said he turned on it because 1. he wanted to be with Amanda, and 2. because Spencer, Howard, and Jeremy were so bad at it.  He told them that it sucks that Nick got evicted because he was the only one who was actually a really good player and would have been great to work with, but that the other three were horribly and obvious and that they pushed him around about it so he had to turn on them.  Amanda and Andy took it really well. Amanda said she still trusts him, and Andy couldn't stop talking about how he can't wait to talk about it in the DR.  I'm not terribly surprised that Andy is excited to talk about anything. 

 

 

Right now they are all still awake but things seem to be winding down, and I am spent so I'm going to have to call it a night. GinaMarie is still crying, but the others are mostly just chit chatting about various game aspects and trying to figure out how the food comp and nominations will go today.  I haven't even heard anyone say who is being nominated yet because the feeds have just been fight fight fight fight, but if I had to guess I would say it would be Aaryn and kaitlin.  The MVP nomination will of course be up to Elissa I'm sure, and she will likely nominate Spencer as a pawn with the intention to backdoor Jeremy if he can't play in the veto comp, or at least get him up there if he doesn't win veto. 

HOH is really irrelevant this week in that the whole side of the house against BlondeTourage has the votes and the same targets, so all that will really matter is who the MVP nominates and who wins the veto. If Jeremy doesn't win he is going home.  If he does win, Aaryn is going home.  And that's the way I expect the week to play out.  Is anyone else already exhausted even though it's only week 3?!  I'm so glad the feeds are at least interesting this year though.  I'm really disappointed in losing Nick as a player, and I blame a lot of it on the MVP twist (and a lot of it on his own game play as well), but I can't complain about all the explosions that happened due to his eviction.  This is the reason most of us watch the feeds.  After tonight's events I'm going to say fairly confidently that Nick really needs to invest in a restraining order, and Aaryn may have to go into witness protection or something when she gets out of the house.

Anyway, that's it.  I'm sorry if this has been a jumbled mess of a blog, but it has been a very VERY long last 24 hours, my eyes are BARELY open, and it is WAY past time for me to sleep. As always, you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more updates.  Until tomorrow night....

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 5 Recap

When we left CBS on Wednesday night, the Big Brother 15 cast were in the middle of a HOH competition that had everybody paired off. Cups of barbecue sauce were to be transferred from one person to another, and the first person to pull out the little golf ball was the winner.

Obviously, those of us who have the feeds know the results of this contest, but we’re still missing some details. Was it a clean victory? Was there cheating, and were the offenders punished? Most importantly, who was going to end up feeling they were in danger?

We begin with Julie’s instructions to the house, and we get to actually hear them this time! In fact, we get the rules twice as they have Nick repeat them. Wait, we get a third version of them. There’s lots of slips and falls, complete with quirky background music.

It’s then time for the players to say why they have to win, and for some godawful reason we begin with Elissa’s Hollywood stoner drawl. “I need to win this more than birds need their feather.” Really? That’s the best your family’s script writers can come up with?

Aaryn then whines about how she needs to win to avenge David, and we go back to that shocking moment when he left the house. GinaMarie, Jessie, and Aaryn freak out when the news is read. Aaryn has a few fake tears as she says how terrible she felt.

We can’t go more than a few seconds without Elissa, so we get to hear her thank America again and complain about how she’s had a “target on my back”. Spencer is also happy. Aaryn is then seen kissing David, and saying she did not vote to evict him.

Once he’s gone, GinaMarie is freaking out, and Nick comforts her. She has some babbling in the diary room about “plans falling to pizzas”, but who knows what she was talking about.

We then return to the competition, and Jeremy and Aaryn are currently in the lead. There’s no real reason to keep recapping everything these freak shows say as they continue to play.

Judd does grab the ball from the small jar, so they now get a bigger scoop. Howard does the same, but they’re still way behind Jeremy and Aaryn. In fact, Elissa and Andy are right behind them. Andy attempts to pull out the ball, but...we go to commericals.

It is super close, and Elissa claims they “feel victory in their fingertips”. Andy just can’t quite reach it, though, and Jeremy eventually pulls it out for the victory. Yes, they’re both happy, and they “did it for David”. It is, though, Elissa’s “worst nightmare come true”. She’s getting better at reading her lines.

Jeremy and Aaryn then have to decide which of them is the actual HOH, and Spencer is hoping he makes the right move for the Moving Company. He doesn’t. He lets Aaryn have the glory, and we get frowns from the rest of the team. Hey, as he even says, “I get to play next week”.

Aaryn then has to pick the Have-Nots for the week, and she asks who voted to evict David. This gets a bit tense, and for some reason Nick acts all cocky about it in the diary room. She eventually puts up Elissa, Helen, Candice, and David, which causes Elissa to complain. “How can you do that to Helen? That’s not a nice thing to do to anyone two weeks in a row. Aaryn is definitely not a nice girl.”

It’s now all tense in the bathroom as they attempt to figure out who evicted David. Aaryn says the “HOH is dedicated to what was done wrong to David”. She doesn’t think she can trust anybody. She claims it would have been different if they had come to her and told her. Spencer jumps on the defensive and says he didn’t vote against David, and tries to toss the blame at Candice. She is adamant about it. We get a replay on how Spencer played Candice before the votes by telling her to vote against Elissa.

We move to the Have-not room, and Helen is on the floor crying that she wants America to vote her for MVP this week. “One of us”, replies Elissa. Knowingly, I must add. We get the sad music as they complain about Aaryn some more. “There must be some redemption in this”, says Helen.

For some strange reason, David wants to talk to Aaryn. He says he’s going to be truthful with her, but actually “lie lie lie”. More sad music; more wasted time in the show...especially after Andy’s attempt at a pun.

Speaking of wasted time, it’s the “who wants to see my HOH room?” segment. No recap of this bullshit cliched segment.

Now we are back to the vote controversy. THey have concluded it’s between Candice, Spencer, and Howard. I just don’t care anymore. Jeremy wants to nominate Elissa and Helen, and Jessie says that there is no way Elissa came up with the plan that saved her by herself. Jeremy, meanwhile, is thriving on the fact that this is actually his own HOH. Ok, one one funny part to end this segment. She warns Nick that if he is the one behind everything, she’s going to cut off his dick in his sleep. And I believe she would.

Time for more wasted segments, as we see the unveiling of the viewer’s choice Have-Not food. Andy, though, love the extra tv time as he complains about the liver and lima beans. #shrugs#

Wait a second. Why are McCrae and Amanda in the HOH with Andy, Judd, and Howard? Oh, I see. It is time for CBS to save face. They all start bitching about Aaryn, and Amanda brings up her derogatory and racist comments. Howard talks about it in the diary room, and we get some of the footage that both Aaryn and GinaMarie said. “Even when these comments are made in fun”, says Howard, “they still hurt and are disrespectful. Especially when that person isn’t there to hear it and back themselves up.” We get a few more of these remarks, and Howard says it is possible that it could lead him to lose his temper. Amanda then continues on about the topic, and how her comments are going to hurt her in and out of the house.

But we are back to the vote controversy, and Candice is talking to Helen about it. They go over the votes, and Candice figures out that Nick and Jeremy have something together. She is using her “super duper trooper skills” to figure it out. They now conclude that maybe Spencer is also working with them. “Nick is the one to watch”, says Candice. “I wonder if it is a boy’s supergroup.” Hey, even Howard may be in it! Or McCrae! “There’s something that we’re missing.”

Time for even more filler, as Jessie is upset that Nick is “scared” of her. She explains that she’s upset that everybody else (supposedly) has a love interest in the house, so she decides to bother Nick all day long. BTW, this is also way out of context as it was from last Monday. Besides that, it is boring and pathetic.

Now Helen and Aaryn have a conversation, with the idea that Helen wants to be an asset to Aaryn. While she doesn’t really care that much for what she has to say, it is a possibility that Helen could help her in the long run.

Jeremy is sitting outside with the Moving Company. He says that Elissa has to go, but who should go up with her? His idea is Helen, but Spencer brings up Amanda’s name as she “goes around and talks to everybody”. Spencer says in the diary room that he would much rather have Amanda go this week than Elissa. “If Amanda is out, Howard and I can run everything.” Wait, what?

Jeremy heads up to the diary room to inform Aaryn what the Moving Company said to him. He tells her that Amanda was the mastermind of David’s departure, so the idea is to put her up with Elissa. We’re led to believe that Aaryn is actually falling for this lie.

After a long, primarily boring half hour, it is now time for Aaryn to do almost exactly what Jeremy wants. I’m actually surprised that Aaryn can read the HOH script, and she goes through all the silliness that we have to endure before the actual nominations...as do the possible nominees and other influential house guests.

Jeremy’s key is pulled first, followed by Kaitlin, Andy, Nick, Judd, McCrae, GinaMarie, Spencer, Jessie, Amanda, Howard, and Candice. Yes, that means Helen and Elissa are nominated. Aaryn says that Elissa makes “a lot of unnecessary waves in the house” and was the “root of David going home”. Helen, though, is on the block by association.

As always, we end with the usual diary room statements by all of three of these loons, and a few more. So what did you think of tonight’s episode? Was it as full of filler as I believe? Are you as tired of Andy as I am? Tell us what you think!

Shocker (Not Really)

It took longer than expected, but the feeds are back and Elissa and Helen have been nominated.

What a strange day, though. We had an entire afternoon of ring kissing, as Jeremy and Aaryn have been holding court. One by one, they've come in for interrogation, with the main question being who should go up next to Elissa. Strangely, Helen basically offered herself up, which was an unnecessary move as she was going up all along.

Kaitlin, though, made it all about herself, with some strange pleas for Candice to go up instead of Helen. In some strange piece of brain farting, Kaitlin would end up going home if it was Helen as the pawn instead of Candice. Not really sure what that was all about.

Even weirder, though, was the sad case of Elissa. She was scheduled to be the last person to grovel, but was suffering from stomach issues. Oddly, this caused the Cat Lady contingent on twitter to start praying, becasue she may be close to death! She just needed a good poop, which means this was the first nomination ceremony in history to be delayed by an intestinal issue. if you think about it, it's fitting.

So we know that Elissa will get the (non-deserved) MVP again tomorrow. Who will go up? Will it be Jeremy, or Kaitlin? Tell us your prediction!

Lazy Day

Just a little update. There's not much going on today. Reverting back to the traditional TV schedule, along with today being a holiday, means that nominations won't happen until tomorrow. It's been a day of sitting by the pool, putting on makeup, and feeling betrayed by a scrap of paper. Yes, GinaMarie has been a real treat all day. Her motormouth skills have been on full display, and she's now disgusted by Nick due to a place card with David's initials she found in his pile of clothes. (Rumor is that it's the name cards the stand-ins use when rehearsing for the live eviction show.)

Oh yes, and our pretty little Aryan princess still can't control her mouth. She's had a number of questionable comments all day long, including one about how Candice is just like all of the other African-American women from recent seasons.

One piece of good news. The day is half over, and Helen has yet to cry! It's a good day for her! The same can't be said for Amanda, who is so paranoid that she's going on the block that she has been up to the HOH on multiple ocassions to beg them to believe her that she didn't vote to evict David. It doesn't seem to be working.

A Day In The Life Of: David

Today’s person of choice is America’s favorite surfer dude. A man who somehow has shown himself to the Big Brother powers as a physical threat who should be eliminated as soon as possible. A man who is in love with the Queen of the Aryan nation.

Most importantly, he’s a man who is oblivious to what is going on around him. He’s not fazed by going up as a replacement nominee. It’s all cool, dude. As long as he gets some sun, a nap or two, and a cute little blonde hanging onto him, everything is alright.

This particular day isn’t much different from most. He’s one of the last to rise, and does very little once he does wake up. He plops himself down on the living room couch, and has a chat with Andy. Or, to be quite honest, Andy does the talking. Its rare that you get a word in once he gets going, but David does query him on when he came out to his parents.

He then disappears for awhile again, but is then seen outside laying out by the pool with his boo. Let’s be real. As cute as she is, and even forgetting her non-PC comments, Aaryn is a needy little twit. She rambles on and on about nothing and everything. She has plans to move to L.A., or New York (with GinaMarie), or maybe even somewhere with him. She golfed once, and was great. She’s sick of school. It just goes on and on.

David is her perfect foil. He just smiles, nods his head, holds her hand, and occasionally says things like “you are the smartest, wittiest, most beautiful girl in Big Brother history”. He’s clearly desperate to get that dick wet.

After another period where he’s not found on the cams, until he’s again found with his lady friend. Kaitlin is cleaning the shower, and Aaryn bitches about how her sheets are dirty and that David hasn’t showered in two days. He’s a bit offended. “I do shower...after comps!”

The topic of dirt carries on for awhile longer, as they head into the bedroom. David’s clothes are piled all over the floor, as is their other meathead roommate, Jeremy. Once again, it’s not his fault. “Black Candice”, after all, has slept on those sheets, which brings on this comment from Aaryn - “at least it wasn’t Asian eyes”. Oh dear.

David is again a non-factor in the early evening. He’s seen tossing a sandbag for a bit, and is then again lying around the pool area with Nick and Jeremy. Yes, we have another non-PC event, as Jeremy goes on a long diatribe about the oral sex skills of redheads, brunettes, Asians, and African-Americans. Yes, this is a good crew.

Then something shocking happens. At approximately 6:45 PM Big Brother time, David is seen in the shower! His Aryan girl looks on in glee, and even gives him a kiss after it’s over. No tongue, though, as she won’t do that on camera. As his lady friend takes his place under the water, David wanders around the house before eating a bit of GinaMarie’s pizza. As more people join the kitchen crew, David is again a silent force as Jeremy decides to evaluate all of the women in the house.

The rest of the evening isn’t more scintillating. He sits with a group for awhile, and offers little to the conversation, and then moves on to another. Most of the time is spent with his girl, Jeremy and Kaitlin, and one might as well just watch on mute. This is particularly true when the foursome play pool, as that has NEVER been a great Big Brother cam to watch.

As we head into the late night portion of this report, I suggest you scroll down to Ash’s post. A lot of crap went down during the evening, most of it revolving around Aryan Girl and Jeremy. There’s a fight here, a fight there, a fight everywhere. What is amazing is that David is around during all of this yet has almost nothing to do with any of it! Even when talk comes that Jeremy’s actions may get David evicted, it’s like he’s not there! It is really an amazing job this guy does in always being an extra in his own play.

Yet, it is quite interesting that I’ve now done profiles on three different people that have all been on the block yet have done nothing to further their place in the house. David has done nothing to ensure his safety. I realize he thinks he’s safe because he’s been told Elissa is the target, but shouldn’t he be finding out if that indeed is the case? And how upset is he going to be when he finds out that his pal Jeremy is actually aware of the plan to save Elissa?

While I sort of shook my head when I first heard about the plot to save Elissa over David, I’m now kind of understanding. It is a bit of a wasted eviction, but if he’s not even going to really play the game, why not just send him packing? And maybe next week, his KKK-loving girl will join him on the beach.

The Night Owl

Well, the shit hit the fan in the BB house tonight!  First there was some game talk so I will get that little tidbit out of the way first.

 

The Moving Company had several meetings of the minds both in the HOH and the Hammock to discuss the plan, make sure it was still on, and discuss who they would like to see go next.  They ultimately came to the conclusion that it doesn't matter who goes next as long as it isn't one of them.  My personal favorite part of these conversations was Nick talking about the insanity (while making wrist slashing motions) of having to "hang out and listen to GinaMarie's garbage pail mouth and put up with Aaryn's stupid bullshit" while pretending to be in the BlondeTourage.

 

 

BUT THEN THEY GOT ALCOHOL!!!

 

Okay, lots and lots happened and if you have the feeds and want to see it you should flashback to around midnight BB time when the Have Nots went off food restriction. (did I mention the have nots were allowed to eat and drink?)

Before midnight, Jeremy decided that he would steal the entire bottle of red wine that Elissa had been looking forward to and drink it all himself..sharing only a little with Aaryn.  He got pretty buzzed and then went out to the hot tub with Aaryn while the have nots had their "yay we can eat" party.  Well, Aaryn decided that it just wouldn't be any fun for everyone else to be having a good time and decided to get up on her mean girl high horse and tell Jeremy how everyone was "mean mugging" her as if she stole the wine.  In reality no one was looking at Aaryn at all and the only thing said about the wine up to that point was Elissa saying "where is the red. I've been a have not and I wanted some. That sucks.".  She didn't say it to anyone in particular though.

After Aaryn got Jeremy all riled up about them getting "mean mugged", Jeremy decided to go into the kitchen in the middle of the party and start yelling at people.  He said a whole bunch of things that didn't make sense along the lines of "go ahead, put me up. I came here to win and it was all me. Ya'll can just be mad at me" etc..   At some point he yelled specifically at Helen and she started to cry and got really upset about it. 

He also yelled either at or about Amanda? It's hard to keep up with.  Anyway, he then went out to the hot tub. Judd followed and said something along the lines of "I'm just happy to be able to eat"  to which Aaryn replied "you don't need to get all snappy with ME Judd. I've had your back this whole time!".  WHAT?!

Then Amanda decided she had to get her 2 cents back in at Jeremy and came out to the hot tub and started yelling at him about how she didn't say anything about the wine except to "check people's teeth if they wanted to know who drank it."  So Jeremy vs Amanda commenced and they yelled for a while and Amanda cried.  She eventually went inside.

Meanwhile, Kaitlin who had been hiding in the back bedroom decided that she was mad enough to need to call Jeremy inside so that she could confront him, but on her way through the kitchen, Elissa decided to yell at Kaitlin, but that tiff only lasted for less than five minutes and then Kaitlin began beckoning Jeremy to come inside so she could have a  piece of the action.  Jeremy however was not ready to come inside since he was busy fighting with Andy at the hot tub!!

Eventually Jeremy came inside and Kaitlin told him how stupid he was being and told him that he was going to get David sent home etc.. etc.. and he asked her if she was breaking up with him and wanted her ring back. She said "I'm not saying anything like that." and eventually went outside. 

Candice, not to be left out of the action, came in to defend Elissa and Helen to Jeremy but was only able to do so for a moment before Aaryn decided that this battle better turn into a hat issue again and SHE began fighting with Candice.  That fight died down for a little while...long enough for Gina Marie to convince Jeremy that he needed to apologize to the still sobbing Helen.  So off he went to apologize to Helen.

Aaryn, was not to be shaken though and continued to fight with Candice while Jeremy apologized to Helen.  Candice then came with my favorite line by far of the whole fight: "I ain't afraid of you, boo thing.".

Eventually, Judd, McCrae, Amanda, and Andy made it up to the HOH room and started talking about how Aaryn MUST go because she is the starter of all of the shit. 

All of these fights and discussions went on for a pretty long time and it would be impossible for me to include everything that happened here.  I hope you guys have flashback.  All I can do now is let a stream of pictures speak for themselves. 

Oh, on the smarter side of the house, Howard was nowhere to be seen or heard during all of this and stayed away from the Drama.  Nick was in the room, but as usual had on his "completely no reaction" face the entire time. 

So here you go...the fight in pictures:

 

 

 Aaryn drinking and shit talking

 

Jeremy with stolen wine

 

Amanda vs Jeremy

 

A lot of people fighting

 

Kaitlin vs Jeremy

 

Candice vs the room/hat

 

Andy vs the room

 

Helen after the fact

 

Aaryn still being a bitch vs Candice part 2

 

Apologies and Aaryn still fighting

 

Completely unaffected

 

Well..unaffected until the meeting with McCrae and realization that the house was turning on itself as planned.

 

You guys!! This is amazing drama that happened before BB would usually even start.  What an exciting night.  If you don't have the feeds you really should consider them. It's only going to get more volatile.  I'm spent for tonight and they haven't even headed to bed yet.  Until tomorrow night... (unless they get into it again in which case you will get a follow up.)

Pure Comedy

People that know me understand that I'm a curmudgeon that hates almost everything. That's why even I'm shocked at how much I'm loving the live feeds. Seriously, if you don't have them do it now. It's pure gold. 

Every single one of these people are delusional, and you never know what is going to happen from minute to minute. Yes, that sounds like a CBS cliche, but it's been true so far. 

Today was a perfect example. Paranoia is running rampant, and silliness is in the air. First off, David has started to figure out that he may be a target. That has set him off, and he even spent some time bitching to McCrae about it. Then out of the blue, my pretty girl Aaryn started acting psycho once again, commanding him to do what she tells him. Oh, that girl is a treat.

Then you have two fights going on at the same time. Jeremy goes into the bathroom to yell at Aaryn while she is taking a shower. In the next room, Kaitlin is going nuts, screaming to David and GinaMarie that Jeremy has betrayed her. All of this is because there are various rumors floating around that various people know each other or are related. Meanwhile, Elissa is nowhere to be found...but I'm sure smiling like a proud Reilly.

Elissa is part of the big winner of the afternoon, though. Amanda, who must have a dozen different deals by now, has been working an old versus young rivalry. She sits down with Elissa to talk about making a deal. They decide that the best plan for them is to pretend they're arguing, and she'll storm off.

The problem is that our dear Amanda has not taken any lessons from Strasburg, and nobody even raises an eyebrow as she stomps away. Attempting to make sure everybody know they hate each other, Amanda makes a show of stomping away again when Elissa sits in the same area as her. Still...crickets. Nobody gives a shit.

It's not going to work anyway, as Elissa told McCrae just a couple of minutes later that it's a hoax. Oh well.

The night is young. I can't wait to see what happens next!

A Day In The Life Of: Jessie

(Note: In an effort to try something new this year, this post is the start of a new series of profiles. Throughout the season, I’m going to pick one person and try to follow them on the feeds all day. I have some doubt that I’ll be able to devote the necessary time to accomplish this, though. I’m starting off with the first nominees, as obviously this will be my only chance to get one of these peeps.)

Our first glimpse of Jessie was not the best. Throughout the entire CBS premiere, she proclaimed herself the prettiest girl in the house. I immediately pegged her as this year’s Danielle. Last year’s Danielle, not Evel Dick’s brat.

When the feeds came on, though, we saw a sad, sad girl sitting with a giant frown on her face. Apparently, she had set her sights on Jeremy, and they had a moment or two in the early days. That dirty girl Kaitlin came along, though, and Jessie was kicked to the curb.

Oh yeah, Jessie was also put on the block. Something tells me that being dumped hurt more than being on the block.

So this day begins inauspiciously for our poor little nominee. She wanders into the bathroom around the same time as the rest of the girls (and a couple of the boys), and performs the morning ritual of brushing her teeth and applying makeup. She says little, and doesn’t respond at all to the entrance of Elissa and her complaints about the messy nature of the bathroom. The only highlight of this portion of the day is when she shares a laugh with Aaryn by making fun of Rachel’s voice and laugh.

A bit later, she plops herself down in the living room with coffee and a muffin, joining a handful of other people. Unfortunately, two of them are Kaitlin and Jeremy, who are pretty much on top of each other on the opposite couch. Awwwkward. She is pretty much a mute during this time, even after Kaitlin wanders off.

After Jeremy ends up in the bedroom with Kaitlin, Jessie surprises nobody by ending up in that same room, doing her nails while sitting on the adjoining bed. Does she follow them everywhere? This time, it is Jeremy’s turn to leave, and Kaitlin pretends to sleep. A few minutes later, Jessie is back in the living room for more idle chatter.

Then something very strange happens. She disappears! For the next few hours, she doesn’t show up on any of the feeds. Even Elissa’s Bible reading gets some airtime during that period, but absolutely no sign of Jessie.

Mid-afternoon, she finally appears, playing chess with Spencer. David, who is looking on, asks her some questions about her cheerleading days, and Jessie leaps to her feet to show off her skills.

Not long after that, the MVP ceremony blocks the feeds, and when we return Jessie is silently sitting in the HOH as Elissa and Jeremy exchange barbs. Once Elissa departs, Jessie remains silent until she interrupts McRae’s CD time by asking about the amount of time there usually was between the ceremony and the veto competition in previous season.

Once again seemingly evaporated into the house vapor, it’s another hour before we see her again. After bitching about Elissa, Kaitlin storms out of the HOH and walks right by Jessie and Elissa. According to Kaitlin, Elissa was asking Jessie if she’d consider putting up Kaitlin in the future. Jessie denies this, saying that Elissa was actually asking her to form an alliance. “I’m not making a deal with the devil”, she claims.

They actually have a civil conversation for quite some time, which proves the theory that a rival bitch is the one thing that will bring together two catty girls who have been fighting over a man.

The best part of this conversation comes at the end, as Jessie looks at the camera and says, “if you vote for me for MVP next week I’ll flash my boobs.” Kaitlin agrees, and they both head up to the HOH to bitch some more about Elissa.

For the next half hour or so, she lies around in the HOH, until suddenly she complains to Nick about his bed-sharing with GinaMarie. Seriously, girl, is there any guy in that house that is safe from you? He plays it off, and they talk a bit about his diet. Nick doesn’t eat junk food, and he credits his parents.

Around this time, David and Aaryn had a fight over a conversation he had with Elissa after the MVP meeting. It’s off-topic for this post, but you should go check it out, as Aaryn is very clingy and scary. Jessie now heads downstairs to talk to David about that fight. After she gets that out of the way, she attempts to talk him into throwing the veto competition to give her a better shot at winning. Then she can be replaced by Elissa! “The only person who wants you out is the person who put you up!”

David is obviously not too comfortable with that plan, and they talk a bit about who the MVP really is. David thinks it is possible that Nick is the actual MVP, but they both agree that it’s possible that the vote was rigged to ensure Elissa’s survival. You think?

It was around this time that the feeds went to trivia, meaning it was veto competition time. When the feeds came back, McCrae had won but the only sad person was Elissa. As she cleaned up, she complained to Aaryn (and then GinaMarie) how hard it was to figure out what to do. Ten minutes later, she was still explaining. She loves scrabble, you know! “I had some extra vowels.”

A bit later, Aaryn and her decide to take a bubble bath, and head upstairs to ask permission. With that granted, they climb in shortly after starting the water, but one really can’t hear anything they’re saying. Jessie wonders if there’s ever been sex in the tub, but otherwise it’s just silly talk. Jeremy joins them, and a number of others stand around chatting about Elissa.

Once the bath ends, Jessie again disappears for quite some time, and we find out later that she was cleaning the kitchen. She spends a bit of time back in the HOH before finally calling it a night.

This has been a somewhat interesting way to watch the feeds. You really don’t notice how people suddenly aren’t present on any cams. Did you enjoy this little experiment? Should I carry on with others in the house?

It's In The Genes

If there was any doubt where this creature Elissa came from, this latest conversation with McCrae erased it. She had been pretty quiet throughout the morning, taking a lot of time with the Bible. (Oh yes, I can see the CBS edit now.) Then she headed up to the HOH to talk to McCrae, and it was right out of the Rachel playbook. There were lots of babbling how the audience would love to see the two of them work together, and how Aaryn has been bullying her. It's gone on, and the only difference is that Elissa does this in a more passive-aggressive voice than Rachel's high pitched whine. It's the same speech, though, almost word for word.

Look, I can understand that she's worried about being put up. She should fight to stay in if that's the case. But of all the targets in the house, it's not coincidental that her main enemy is the pretty little blonde girl. It's not somebody who is an actual threat to go far. It's somebody who knows nothing about the game. Kind of reminiscent of Rachel versus Cassie, right?

First Night Jitters

With the first CBS show under our belt, we had some time to kill before the feeds went live. How did you spend that time? In my case, it was primarily drinking. As time clicked closer and closer to 11 pm (I'm a central time zoner), the anticipation grew. Just how different were these people from what we saw on the show? Was Jessie still bragging about her hotness? Has Elissa taken over the show, ala her sister's two seasons?

The time finally came, and a quick refresh of my browser and this is what I saw:

YES! Girl party!

Unfortunately, the eastern portion of the country didn't see this. They saw nothing. Apparently, there was a glitch of some sort caused by the fact it was past midnight, and the official Big Brother clock was a different date than my east coast friends. It was discovered that if they backtracked a few hours, and then hit live, they'd be online. Or if they changed their computer's clock.

So what did we see? The first thing I noticed was a sad Jessie. This was not the over-confident, self-procliamed "hot girl" we saw on the CBS broadcast. Nope, she was a pure mope.

We found out a bit later that there were two reasons for her attitude. One reason was that she was nominated for by McCrae (along with Candice), and, probably more importantly in her mind, she was having boy problems with Jeremy. I guess we do have a love triangle in the house, with the third party being the lovely Kaitlin.

There's also another couple in the house. Aaryn is with David and there's talk that they knew each other before the show. This needs further investigation. There was also supposedly a pre-live feed cat fight that involved Candice. I don't know much about this at this point.

They boys all have alliances with each other, and most of them have multiple alliances. They're playing hard right off the back, particularly Nick. I have to say I completely misjudged him in the pre-show videos. He may ultimately hurt himself by playing so hard so fast, but he is a smart cookie.

For a guy like me, this is a wonderful cast. All of the girls are relatively attractive. Candice is the least appealing for me, but even she cannot be described in derogatory terms. For female fans, though, it's a disaster. Seriously, these dudes are all dorks! Why oh why do multiple women want stupid Jeremy?

I didn't last long with the feeds last night, as the effects of the alcohol made me weary. There's also the fact that the first night of feeds is a bit of a cluster fuck in multiple voices babbling at the same time. But at least there was no "Big Booty".
