Big Brother Season 15, Episode 4 Recap

I’m settled into my couch ready for the first eviction of the year. Will it be the boy-crazy Jessie? The no-nothing surfer dude, David? Or the whiney, living-on-the-coattails sister of Big Brother “royalty”, Elissa?

More importantly, will CBS make mention of the various controversies surrounding the show? At this point, with TMZ even weighing in, won’t they look like fools if they don’t?

So let’s start with the phoniness surrounding Elissa replacing Candice on the block. Remember, McCrae ended last night’s show by saying she was the real target, and CBS-only viewers fell for it hook, line, and sinker. She’s not. He was fulfilling a role for the rest of the house, and, more importantly, the CBS production team. Or was he? (See, I can also play that game.)

Ha, Julie did throw in a sly comment about people showing their “true colors” in her intro. To sum up the post-veto comments, McCrae hopes that Nick can get the votes to save Elissa, David isn’t worried, and Nick is pissed that McCrae put her up. Elissa says that McCrae “betrayyyyyyyyed mah twust”. She says she has to be “a little more open with some of these houseguests”.

We immediately see that, as she admits to a variety of people that she is Rachel’s sister and the MVP. Andy is impressed that she opened up to them, and Amanda agrees. “Maybe she’s human. Maybe.”

Jeremy is sitting outside with his boo, Kaitlin. For some reason, he tears open his shirt, and they have a laugh. Jeremy says “we’re vibing”, and we see them mauling each other. Kaitlin then apologizes to her dad. What a waste of time.

Back to Elissa, who is now again bonding with Judd and Helen. It really is the Elissa show, to my anger. But at least we get some J-U-DOUBLED, and this leads to a discussion that the house needs to save the booze until Judd is no longer a have-not.

This doesn’t work out, as the moron foursome decide to steal the wine about 45 minutes early. When the clock hits midnight, the have-nots, including Judd, are ready to drink. Unfortunately, there is no wine left.

Aaryn is upstairs admitting this to GinaMarie and Nick, while the rest of the house searches for the bottle. Helen is particularly fired up to eat and drink, and Aaryn complains that everybody is so two-faced. Uh, baby, it’s because you stole their wine!

She heads outside to whine some more, and reports that Amanda claims that she’ll put them up if they did steal the wine. That poor little Aaryan girl is sick of those people! She heads back inside with Jeremy, who admits that he was the rude one. “I feel great, and I don’t give a fuck.” He doesn’t want everybody else to yell at Aaryn and the others. What a bore.

He then heads back outside, and they all make fun of them. At the same time, Aaryn is impressed and can’t wait to get rid of “all of these jerks”. Good luck with that, little bitch. Amanda then comes out and yells at Jeremy, who tells her to “be quiet and listen”. For some reason, Helen starts bawling inside as Amanda continues to yell at Jeremy. Seriously, though, this is nothing compared to the other stuff that went on during that day.

After a commercial break, we head back to more house footage. Amanda is shown heading into the HOH, and we see their late-night banter (but not some of the more embarrassing stuff they did). McCrae does admit, though, that he’s scared of the “man eater”, and then the romantic music comes on as they start kissing. McCrae says it’s “pretty sweet” for a pizza boy like him to be with this high-end real estate agent.

Aaryn is now telling David that there is no way that he is going home. Yet, the next scene is a Judd, Amanda, and Spencer talking about how Elissa is going to win MVP every week, so she may be a valuable ally. “We’ll have the third nominee every week, no matter who is HOH.” Even my pal Judd makes some sense in this segment.

Spencer then goes on to Nick about this plan, who then moves on to Jeremy. He’s not so sure about this idea, though, but Nick convinces him it’s a good idea. Spencer keeps making the moves, now telling Howard and McCrae.

We quickly move to Julie addressing the house. The first question goes to Andy about the mood of the house, and he says it’s been “odd”. She then asks Helen about how much the third nominee changes the game. Yeah, you can predict the answer. “Anything’s up for grabs.” Julie then asks Judd about the have-not room, and he says he hates airports. “It’s a pretty shady airport”. We end the segment by asking Candice about being on the block before going off the block, and she gives a nonsensical pageant answer.

It’s already eviction time, but first we have the final pleas. Jessie goes first, and says happy birthday to her father and the usual “I love you guys” babble. Elissa is second, and goes full Rachel about how she’s a huge target. Ugh, she even does the “nothing gets between me and my” bullshit line. David is last, and he says he should be kept because he’s a “stand up guy”. God, he’s an idiot.

It’s now time to vote, and Amanda votes to evict David (to cheers, for some reason). Aaryn is next, and she votes to evict Elissa (to boos). Nick then votes to evict David, but Candice goes for Elissa. I see how this is going. Spencer then votes to evict David, and Kaitlin votes for Elissa. Next up is...commercial.

We return, and the pattern is the same. Helen votes against David, but Howard goes against that pattern (but against the Moving Company) by also voting against David. GinaMarie, though, votes against Elissa, but Judd goes against David. Jeremy votes against Elissa, and Andy against David.
Julie addresses the house, and David is out 7-5. There’s a stunned silence (except for a bleeped out word), but Aaryn is pissed! When we finally get to Julie’s interview, David has even less to say. Literally, nothing to say. Just head offstage, surfer boy! At least Amanda had a great goodbye message, saying his biggest mistake was hooking up with the “biggest bitch in the house”.

It’s now time for the HOH competition, and it’s called “BB-BBQ”. They are in teams, and they have to fill their cup with barbecue sauce. This is transferred to their partner, who then has to dump it in the jug. There are also smaller jugs that, when filled, allows you to grab a bigger cup. Oh yeah, and the floor is slippery.

This is a competition that will go on for quite some time, so stay tuned to the site for further news. Other than that, a big “F-U” to CBS for not dealing with the controversies from earlier this week!

Do you agree? Are you upset with CBS? Are you happy Elissa was saved? Or that silly Jessie didn’t get a single vote? Do you agree it’s bullshit that a MVP can repeat? Tell us what you thinK!

Enough!

I've had to shut off social media for the time being, as the circular discussions are driving me nuts. Just to be clear, I'm as shocked and offended by the various racial and sexual slurs uttered by over half the house as everybody else. 

But I can no longer handle the chatter.

Every one of those unfortunate comments is being rehashed and rehashed. We all know what was said! We all agree that it's horrible!

There's no coverup, though. The incidents (except for maybe one case of loose lips) all happened after Saturday's veto meeting. Sunday's show was already in the can at that point, and it also didn't fit Tuesday's timeline. Tonight is the night that it would be shown, during that opening segment that is usually present to make you believe the eviction is a tossup.

I predict some of it will be shown, and it is due to those that heard them on Sunday and Monday. It was those people that led to news outlets such as NPR, HuffPo, and other publications to report on the incidents. It was those people that are ultimately responsibel for Rachel Reilly's self-serving interview with TMZ earlier today.

Without it hitting the media, CBS could have easily swept the story under the rug. They're now forced to deal with it, and I'd be shocked if they didn't. If they do ignore it, then you can scream about conspiracies.

Until then, I'd like a couple of hours of other topics. Can you help a fella out?

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.

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 2 Recap

Tonight is one of the few times when the Sunday night show is full of unseen material, as it will consist of nothing but pre-live feed material. Hopefully, a few questions will be answered. Why are people shunning Elissa (besides the reasons I would do this)? Why are the current nominees on the block? How did the various alliances get formed? Most importantly, how did Jeremy go from Jessie to Kaitlin? And why would either girl even want him?

The drink is mixed, the Tylenol has been swallowed, and the garbage pail is next to me...so it must be time to begin! After the reminder of everything that happened on Wednesday’s show, we kick off with yet another recap! Yes, things have not changed in the Big Brother production department.

This replay is about the new MVP twist. In case you forgot what was said, Nick has to explain it to us once again. Everybody is scared because of the secrecy. “It kind of changes everything. You have to be nice to everybody.” Aaryn thinks it’s “awesome” as she’s going to win it “more than once”.

Meanwhile, Jessie says this makes it hard for the HOH, because one of his nominees may not go home. “Now you have two targets on your back.” The current HOH, McCrae, agrees, and looks worried. “I could get a lot of blood on my hands and not get what I wanted.”

We move into the lounge area, and Jeremy and Judd are complaining that it will be nothing but girls that win MVP. Judd says that Kaitlin will win, and Jeremy’s reply is that “she’s got my MVP”. They run down all of the hot girls in the house, and even I can understand Judd for the first time. Jeremy says that since he’ll never know who is the MVP, “I’m going to have to have a snuggle session with each and every one of these beautiful ladies. You know what, I don’t think that will be too hard.” Good luck with that, bra.

We’re now in the bathroom with the young hotties (Kaitlin, Aaryn, Jessie), and Kaitlin says she didn’t want to win HOH. Nick interrupts for a second, and after he walks away Kaitlin and Jessie talk about how cute he is. “It’s like we have things in common”, says Jessie. I’ll refrain from commenting on that. Kaitlin tells her to “go for it”. The three decides to create some code words for the boys - Kenneth (David), Manhattan (Nick), and The Sailor (Jeremy). Wait, they change Nick to “Big”. “You like the Sailor”, says Jessie. Both Aaryn and Kaitlin give dirty looks to that claim. Kaitlin goes on to make fun of his voice. (Foreshadowing alert!)

Ugh, it’s the “who wants to see my HOH room” segment. I hate this shit. I don’t give a fuck, even when they start making fun of Rachel. God, that awful whiney voice of Elissa now gets a diary room segment. She decides to not let anybody know they’re related. Yeah, that will last long.

It’s time for some filler, as Jeremy and Nick play some hackysack. Nick questions Jeremy about his thoughts on the house, and Nick wants to bring in Howard and Spencer. Jeremy just says yes to everything, and he is excited because those two are already in an alliance with him. “I’m cool with that plan.”

Nick moves on to those two to invite them in, and they both agree. Nick wants to have a late-night chat with all of them so that they can bring McCrae into the fold. After showing some weird hippy dance from McCrae, Nick does come in to butter him up. McCrae wants to guess the list of this alliance, and he guesses correctly except for Spencer. McCrae agrees this is a good idea, saying “this is a good offer. An offer I shouldn’t refuse.”

Spencer, Jeremy and Howard then head up, and they go through all of their roles. Jeremy says he is “flabbergasted by all of the talent in this room.” Nick thinks this whole group will be final five, but thinks that David is their one big threat. McCrae thinks he should put up two girls, with the real plan to go after him. Howard says “if you put up the right two, they’ll kill each other anyway”. Nick says that getting rid of him will make it so that the only other physical threat is removed.

The meeting adjourns with the most important part of the conversation - the alliance name. I’m actually surprised they took this long. Remember when The Brigade came up with the name before they even created their team? Yeah, so this is called The Moving Company. McCrae says he “feels amazing” to be both HOH AND have a power alliance!

After commercials, it’s showmance time! David asks Aaryn to go sit in the hammock, saying that she is the perfect girl for him. She immediately starts talking about how in competitions, he has to save her. “I just like really need you to like work hard and make sure that I stay safe and I’ll never put you up.” They’re a power couple, yo! David says this is perfect, as he came into the house MORE for a showmance than the money anyway. “She’s way smarter than me, and I’m ready for some action.”

Jessie is clearly boy crazy, and complains to Amanda that she doesn’t know who she likes. Amanda suggest either Nick or Jeremy, and she does like both of them. Amanda asks if she gets any vibes from Nick, and Jessie says that they flirt. She wants Amanda to go ask him if she likes him, and Amanda complains it is like being at a Bieber show. She does a pretty good job at impersonating her, actually. Jessie’s main problem is that she doesn’t want to look stupid. Too late, baby. Amanda suggests that she just go sleep with McCrae instead. (For those watching the feeds, that’s an interesting comment.)

Oooh, it’s J-U-DOUBLE-D time! He is in the HOH with McCrae, and informs him that “I know for a fact that Elissa is Rachel Reilly’s sister”. McCrae actually didn’t know until that moment, and realizes that she really is a clone. Others are talking about the same thing. In fact, everybody is talking about it. David is completely perplexed, in fact. “Aaryn is one smart cookie.” Um, no. She’s not. Stop it. And please stop this segment. It’s gone on way way too long, even though it is funny that Amanda is embarrassed that she didn’t figure it out.

We return from another commercial break with the Have/Have Not competition. McCrae is dressed like a safari guide, and announces the rules for the game. It’s called Kooler and the Gang, and it’s a giant campground. Judd is happy because it’s “almost like home”. They have to race across the lake, grab a soda can, and place it on a platform held by the rest of the team. Another then runs in, and they have to form a pyramid with these cans.

After some comments about how they just can’t be a Have-not, the competition begins. I won’t bore you with a play-by-play, but the losers end up being Andy, Howard, Elissa, Judd, and Helen. The segment ends with the unveiling of the Have-Not room, a recreation of the inside of an airplane, and they all complain.

Now a handful are sitting outside, rehashing the Have-Not competition. They all make fun of Judd’s paddling, and then Amanda says she wants to “fucking vent”. Kaitlin immediately starts complaining about how Candice wouldn’t listen to any direction, and that she liked her until that night. Amanda doesn’t disagree. “She’s got to go”, says Kaitlin.

Amanda is sucking on a popsicle in the HOH when we return from more adverts, discussing with McCrae how tough it must be to the be the first HOH. Amanda says “everybody wants a slice of the pizza boy” (oh, how I could have fun with that line), and she wants to have a voice in the nominee selections. She goes on to tell him that nobody likes Jessie, and that it’s not smart to put up strong guys. “Jessie has a way better ass than me, and I’m a little jealous”, she says in the diary room. McCrae is confused. “Putting up weak players can definitely keep the target off of my back, but it could be a waste of my HOH.” Smart thinking, pizza boy.

A bit later, Elissa walks into the room. She apologizes for not knocking, and says in the diary room that she’s worried that the secret will be “coming out soon”. She decides to tell McCrae, and he tells her that she doesn’t want to act like Rachel did during her time. As a superfan, though, he claims to be excited. It’s exciting to have her around, but “if I don’t try to take her out, it could come back to haunt me.”

Now Jessie,  Aaryn, and David are in the HOH, asking what his plans are. McCrae says the idea is to come up with something that ensure his safety for the next week. Jessie says the safe move would be Elissa and Helen, with Elissa being the target. “She’s for sure 100% to be Rachel’s sister. And what if she’s not even here to play the actual game? What if she’s here for like as sabotage?” Hmmm, maybe David is right. Aaryn is smart, you guys! Poor McCrae is even more confused. “Bottom line is that I have to play this game for me!”

Before we get to the nominees, The Moving Company has a meeting. Well, Nick and McCrae do. Nick wants two girls up, or possibly David. Elissa’s name is also brought up once again.

Finally, we’re at the moment of truth. Will the nominee be surfer boy? Will it be the dim bulb booty chicks? Or will we get the thrill of our life and see that Reilly monster sweat it out as a nominee?

McCrae brings in the house, and the keys start coming out. The first key belongs to Nick, followed by Jeremy, David, Aaryn, Kaitlin, GinaMarie, Elissa, Helen, Amanda, Andy, Howard, Spencer, and Judd. Jessie and Candice are nominated!

McCrae gives generic bullshit reasons for his nominations, which pisses off Jessie. She says she’s going to win POV and come after him. Elissa is so relieved, as she was convinced she’d be put up every week “just like Rachel”. Candice says she’s “not ready to go home”, and cries as she wants to win. McCrae explains that he put up the two least favorite people in the house, and hopes that the MVP is the one to get blood on their hands.

So that’s it! We didn’t get all of our questions answered, but quite a few of them. What did you think of tonight’s episode? Does the nominations now make sense? Let me know your thoughts!

A Day In The Life Of: Candice

(Note: In an effort to try something new this year, this post is the second 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.)

Today, I’m following around Candice, the pageant girl who greatly annoyed me in her pre-show interviews. Apparently, she was involved in some blowout before the feeds went live, and this must be the reason she is on the block.

This is a good day to follow anybody around, as Big Brother allows them to sleep in pretty late. Around ten, she makes her way down to the kitchen, as she’s in charge of today’s breakfast. Aaryn mentions that her ass looked good in the dress she was wearing the previous night, and we get a bit of a flirtatious “donkey boot” discussion with Howard. She’s going to try to go all day without swearing, and anytime she does Howard has permission to spank her ass. “The question is, do you like being spanked”, replies Howard. “Oh yes.” Ok then.

Most of the house ends up outside while this marathon cooking session goes on. Seriously, two hours to make pancakes? It’s a bit of a success, I guess, although a bit later GinaMarie and Spencer are complaining about the amount of “extra junk” she added. Candice interrupts this conversation (which was about more than food), and GinaMarie flips her off when she leaves a few minutes later. GinaMarie tells Spencer that if the Elissa thing doesn’t work, then Jessie should go because Candice’s blow-ups “will make her a constant target”. What blowups? We haven’t seen anything.

For the rest of the house, the early afternoon is bikini time. Except for Candice. Just like Jessie yesterday, Candice disappears for hours, before she finally is shown on camera sitting with McCrae, Jessie, and Howard. This convo doesn’t last too long on the feeds, and a few minutes later we hear her being called into the diary room.

She is in out of the feeds for the rest of the afternoon. We do see her hovering around the photo booth after it was unveiled to the house, and is seen laying around outside. Yet she’s completely unseen during the various fights, including the fake one involving Elissa and Amanda. She reappears shortly after that one, though, kind of explaining to Aaryn and Jessie what happened. Game talk ends shortly after that, and we get some scintillating chatter about vaginal shaving, Evel Dick’s departure, and what roles each of them were cast. The only real game chatter is Candice saying that at this point, her “fate is in other’s hands”. She’s just going to enjoy her time, and live with the consequences.

More time passes before we see her laying on the HOH bed, talking to Helen and Andy. This discussion is about Elissa, and her decision to not fess up to being a Reilly. One theory is that she may be on a task of sorts to keep it a secret. Candice complains about how you can’t have a real conversation with her, and she throws out lines about charity work in chats that don’t have anything to do with such a thing. “She said it like fifty times.”

One complaint does make a bit of sense, though. Elissa has said a million times that she wanted to come in the house and create a girl’s alliance, but then does nothing but attack them. Helen heads out the door, and asks Candice if she is coming, too. “I think I want to have a little time.”

She disappears from the feeds again for hours, except for a couple of shots that show her and Jessie sleeping. There’s two of your nominees - sleeping off a very important day.

In the late afternoon, she shows up sitting around the hot tub, as Spencer and Adam are droning on about horror movies and comic books. She pipes in a bit about historical spots in New Orleans, but for the most part just listens to the others.

We’re now in the early evening, and Candice has me looking to sleep. Seriously, she has done nothing today! She admits to it, though, telling various people how she has slept away most of the day. She asks Spencer a couple of questions about how the feeds work, which he replies with erroneous information.

The rest of the night is similar. She pops up here and there, but has little to say. At one point, she babbles about her choice of favorite animals. Is it a smart move for a nominee to do nothing a day before the veto ceremony? In a house where something is going on at any moment, shouldn’t she be putting herself out there as a person that can be an asset? She’s clueless about the Moving Company, the Bieber Wiebers (or whatever they’re called), and every other little cluster of imbeciles! She’s not long for this game.

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!

Having fun with my First Impressions 

Most of us fans have twitter and if we do it's a big part of our Big Brother experience. It gives us a way to vent, live tweet, discuss the show and best of all, we can stay connected to past and even current Houseguests!
As I soaked in yet another round of pre-show bios and watched the long-awaited first episode (FINALLLYY!!), I started to think of what handles I would choose for these HG's as if it was my job to do so. Here they are.  I hope you like them. I had a lot of fun doing it.
Comment and please share yours now that we've seen the first episode and the feeds are open for us obsess over again. I'd love to see them.
 
Nick - @RollerDouche
Jack of no trades, master of even less.
 
Helen - @Chenbot 2.0
 
Spencer - @Ghost Bear
They won't see him coming.  My pick to win. 
 
David - @SuperChillBro
It's plainly obvious David is trying for former Houseguest Jesse's spot as God's annoying gift to the world.  I would NOT mind seeing them duel to the death, especially to the death.
 
Elissa - @NOTRachelsSister
I couldn't stand Rachel so much, that she actually isn't that bad.  But she won't stay long because Rachel clearly set her up to fail. 
 
McCrae - @CrouchingTigerHiddenSlacker
It's astounding that HG's thought someone with half a brain couldn't possibly deliver pizzas.  Andy's suspicion goes to show how little of a mastermind he actually is.  McCrae should have no problem staying likable and making it far if he plays his cards correctly.
 
Gina Marie - @TrashBoat (thanks Regular Show)
I kept trying to think of another name, but this Regular Show reference is too hard to pass up.  If you haven't checked it out, you should.  Bet you McCrae loves it. 
 
Jeremy - @WereBoat
Besides being a Taylor Lautner lookalike, he reminds me of Dr. Will just a lot more fake Indian sprinkled on top. How many of us know someone who is small#% Cherokee.  Also, why does he need to live on a boat? WHERE DID HE DUMP THE BODIES??
 
Howard - @TheUnincredibleHulk
No muscles on this guy, totally not a threat at all, nothing to see here.
 
Judd - @TwoRedLights
Pretty sure we'll hear about how small a town Judd is from.  I think his accent is adorable though.  I "awwww" after every sentence. His non-threatening way of saying things is going to make people trust him, but I have a really weird feeling his small town nature and the pressure of the game will create a tornado.
 
Kaitlin - @1oftheGuys
'Cause it's totally *never* her fault when a girl says she doesn't get along with other girls, right?
 
Jessi - @HotterThanU
Amanda - @ImtheHot1
Aaryn - @HotterThanU2
More running, swimming, wading through pools of anything please!!!!! Also, bath time IS AWESOMMMEE.
 
Andy - @TruthSerum
I always enjoy the house gay. Ironically,  they always have the biggest balls and have no problem blowing up publicly on someone, which is always amazing entertainment. (See: Ragan and Rachel).
However, as I've already mentioned, Andy will bury himself in his own theories and hammer every last nail into his own coffin for it.  
 
Candice - @ClassyNSassy
I'm actually hoping Candice doesn't blow up the way BB history would predict. How deep do her "two personalities" actually go? Granted, there have been some really inappropriate things said in the BB House before to muddy the waters, but Candice has the potential to finally leave a positive mark in her own right as an African American woman and instead of becoming PC Police she can make an intelligent stand to do so. She has the capacity, I'm praying she uses it positively. 
 
Anywho, I'm hoping to add some silliness to BBGossip to give all of us a break for a few. Thanks Mike and BBGossip for rewelcoming me back!
 
Happy Watching!

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?
