Big Brother #14, Episode 2 Recap

So this past Thursday we were reacquainted with four so-called “legends” and twelve newbies, one of which left before we even had a chance to say hello. Did we really learn anything about any of these people, though? Sixteen people spread over 42 minutes of actual broadcast time really doesn’t give us much to work with except for the fact that Willie Hantz is related to some Survivor goon. Apparently, that’s like a Beatle entering the house, but since I don’t watch that show it was a waste of precious screen time for the rest of the cast.

Tonight, we’ll hopefully get to learn a bit more about this “ragged company”. (Ten points to anybody who catches that lyrical gem.) Is there a personality to be found in this house? Are Joe’s eyes as frightening as they appear? Most importantly to some of my friends, is Ian every bit the superfan’s hopes we’ve been made to believe? (I vote no.)

And…here we go! Oh Lord, they go over the top in their descriptions of the noobs AND “legends”. Of course, we have to recap the Hantz bullshit. ENOUGH!!! Two minutes in, and I’m already annoyed!

Oh, for fuck’s sake. Now we have to spend MORE time recapping Jodi’s eviction! Dan claims he kicked out Jodi because his other two team members, Daniele and Kara, get along. Interesting, and kind of makes sense.

With Jodi gone, everybody disperses, and Boogie tries to make a joke. Tries is the key word. Yes, Wil, we know the “game has begun”. Daniele and Kara hug, and Kara says they immediately hit if off. Daniele adds something in the diary room, but I can’t figure out a word she says.

Boogie doesn’t waste any time, and he goes to Dan and asks him if he’s “ready to Will it up”. I have a feeling it’s going to be like Will is indeed in the house this season, as Boogie’s entire Big Brother life exists because of Dr. Will. BTW, CBS, quit attempting to create trending topics. It’s boring and inept.

Meanwhile, Janelle tells Britney that the boys are working together, and because they’ve both been played they should work the “Girl Power” angle to get rid of Dan. “They thrive on chaos.”

HOH room reveal – I’ll skip ahead. Nothing to see here that’s any way interesting.

Ok, now Ian is in his boxers reveling in being in the house. He claims he’s going to investigate every inch of the house. Upstairs, the coaches and Willie watch him as he goofs around the house. Britney wonders if he remembers he’s on live streams, and they completely lose it when Ian crawls under a couch. “So weird!”

Now it’s Britney’s turn to make some deals. She has a bunch of people in the HOH, and she tells Willie that in the first week everybody will vote what the HOH wants. Oh really? If her team and Janelle’s team vote as a block, they’ll get out the person they want. Janelle claims that Dan’s fave player of all time is Boogie, so “of course, those two will work together”.  Willie adds that he’s going to be a big target because they believe he’s Russell’s brother…which he then admits to those in the room that is true.

Finally, the deal is supposedly made. My Lord, that took forever.

Oh wait, there’s more, as Janelle brings in the rest of her team to repeat the same plan. Cue Billy Preson’s “Will It Go Round in Circles”! Oh God, Joe is clearly the guy who will speak in the diary room in a way he NEVER speaks in the house. Make it stop!

After the first commercial break, everybody is hanging out outside, and Willie decides to try to get more people into his alliance. He brings Frank up into the HOH, who informs Willie that he has had no strategy conversations with his coach, Boogie. Willie thinks the two of them are similar, and he wants a deal that he won’t put him up next week, no matter what Boogie advises. “I’m here to play my game. I’m not here to play Boogie’s game.” Willie claims to be sold.

Ian is now seen walking into a room of people listening to Janelle babble about her baby. He’s clearly not comfortable, and Janelle calls him a “creeper…he has this weird thing where he can’t stop moving”. We see a montage of most of the girls (and Wil) making similar comments. Oh Lord, he even streaks.

Now Boogie and Frank are talking early one morning, and Boogie asks if he’s worried about being nominated. Frank claims on a scale of 1-10 he’s only at a one. Boogie says he’s impressed because Frank has reached out to Willie. Actually, it pains me to say this but Boogie actually makes sense.

The house is then brought into the living room for a Julie Chen announcement that there is a coach’s competition to save one of their player’s from nomination for the week. Britney knows she’s in trouble as she has the “strength of a three year-old”. This competition also will determine the week’s have-nots.

This competition is described by Ashleigh as “like Preakness…” and I can’t understand another word she says. The coaches come out with outfits that include stuffed horses, and each round has two coaches competing. They have to chase each other on a slippery surface and yank the tail from the other. Boogie and Britney are up first, and (FINALLY) Boogie catches up to Britney for the win.

Dan has all kinds of trouble in his round, although he claims to be throwing it, and Janelle easily beats him. Boogie versus Janelle for the final round! Oh yeah, this is revenge for season seven! Um, no. Le’ts not be silly. Janelle is indeed a beast in this comp, but eventually Boogie catches up and wins because, of course, he “wanted it more” (one of my least fave clichés ever).

Mike then gets to pick a person to be safe for the week, and after babbling for quite some time he chooses Ian. Boogie’s reasoning is because his weirdness has made people uncomfortable, while Jenn has stepped up her social game and Frank is “the most popular guy in the house”.

All of the coaches must now make a have-not pick, which doesn’t make them happy. Britney chooses Shane, Dan goes for Daniele, Janelle chooses Ashley, and Boogie’s pick is Ian. Now I must beg CBS to stop Joe from his asinine diary room scripts! The segment ends with the house being shown the slop and horrific have-not beds.

Janelle and Britney are now seen in the HOH, and Willie is asked if Dan has talked to them at all. Willie says that making Ian safe is screwing up his plans. They scheme about who Dan and Boogie don’t want to lose the most from their teams, and Kara and Frank’s names come up. Both girls think he’s the “biggest player” and “most dangerous” in the house, but unfortunately that goes against Willie’s deal with him.

Dan and Boogie are now shown discussing the female coaches, and Boogie thinks that Janelle is a bit “better” than Britney. After mentioning how “young and naïve” some of these people are, Dan asks who he would sacrifice from his team. “Jenn.” He adds that Frank should be a target but doesn’t think the others are smart enough to figure that out. Dan asks if the other girls are jealous of Kara, but Boogie thinks she’s nice enough and not bitchy enough to really cause any friction. Of course, Britney and Janelle are not up to the mental level of himself.

Filler time, as Joe is cooking a huge dinner for the house. Unfortunately, he’s also using up most of the food in the house. Boogie wonders if maybe he’s an expendable person, so he goes in to talk to Willie, who claims he has no idea who he is going to nominate. Boogie says all “chefs” are hotheads and crazy, which is an interesting theory. On second thought, Boogie is correct. Boogie advises him to pick somebody off and then blend back into the crowd. Cocky Boogie believes he planted the needed seed.

Finally, we get to the nominations and NOTHING has changed from the template of the last ten years. Willy reads the script, a handful of people say they’re nervous, and we get shots of keys. The house is called in, and keys are pulled by (in order) Jojo, Shane, Wil, Daniele, Ashley, Jenn, and Joe. Yes, Kara and Frank are nominated.

Boogie is shocked! Willie says this has been a tough decision, but he had never talked to Kara and somehow it “got weird” between him and Frank (which, of course, was never shown in this episode).

Frank is “completely flabbergasted” because Willie is the one that came to him, and so he’s going to do everything he can to stay. Kara thinks that having Dan as his coach is hurting his chances, while Britney calls this a “successful first week in coaching”. Boogie has now figured out that Janelle is definitely with Britney, and anybody that goes after Boogie has “a little trouble coming your way”. Oh please.

That’s it for tonight. What did you think of the first real look at the cast? Has anybody surprised you, for the better or worse? Let us know your thoughts!

I'm Trying!

Seriously, my friends, I'm trying to get involved in this season. It's just not easy. Sure, I do have the home renovations going on that is a huge distraction, but it's much more than that.

This cast is a bunch of nutjobs!!!

Let's start with the "coaches". These people are supposed to be "legendary" players??? Pffft. A few nights ago, baseball had their All-Star game, and as always the marquee players only were on the field for the couple of innings. They were then replaced by longtime veterans and rising stars before finally you had primarily people who fufilled the rule that every team be represented.

These coaches are those late-game substitions. There's nothing special about them. I loved Britney, but she was no great strategist. Boogie and Janelle's succeses were of the coat-riding variety, and Dan just doesn't seem interested to be there. 

All of them are annoying so far. Boogie name-drops left and right about has-been former lip-synchers and supposed significant others of the gossip column crowd. Britney eats up all of his New Kids and Spears stories, and Janelle just bitches about him. Meanwhile, Dan is just there. You rarely see or hear him.

As for the new contestants, they're all cuckoo! And I don't mean cuckoo in an entertaining way either. JoJo is every stereotype of Long Island trash; Joe has psycho eyes. Willie thinks he has the game figured out in less than a week and is making final two and four deals, while Ian creeps out the girls. It's a sad state of affairs when my favorite guy is the son of a wrestler.

Speaking of the females, which is usually my favorite part of the game, at this point I still can't tell them apart. They're oh so generic, and for the most part all they seem to do is whine. Kara is most notable for her super-shiny knees, and if she wasn't on the block we probably wouldn't even know she's there. Asheligh and Daniele are currently trying to outdo each other in craziness, and the only one I care about (Jenn) is rarely, if ever, shown on the feeds.

The craziest part about this season is how seriously they're taking this coaching bit. They don't have to do this!!! As Joe (of all people) noted this morning, "their fate is tied to us. Our fate is not tied to them." So play your own game, and your coach will be rewarded if you win!

Despite my complaints today, though, I'm sure that I'll grow to love (or at least accept) a few of these people in the next few days and/or weeks. It's always a crazy train when you have this many unknown folks competing to have their voices heard on the feeds. I'm almost glad they didn't follow through with the biggest cast ever!

Who do you think are the most entertaining so far? Are you as annoyed as me?

First 12 hours of the Big Brother Live Feeds - many questions answered.

Hiya,  I was up until 4am BB time and so I am VERY tired but I wanted to share with you what all I learned over the course of the 1st half day (roughly) of the live feeds.  I'm just going to bullet point you to death as I am too tired to try to organize things.  There really is a TON and I know I will miss some..

  • Frank and Kara nominated
  • Ian is 'exempt' (safe) this week via a power won by Boogie in some coaches competition.  Had he known Frank would be nominated he probably would have exempted him but he thought he was safe because Willie and Frank had a mini alliance it appears.
  • Ashley, Danielle, Ian and Shane are "Have Nots" - perhaps the coaches each had to select one of their team members.  Total speculation by me.
  • The old Pandora's Box room IS another bedroom - opens into the HoH room only I think.  Janelle and Britney slept in it last night and were using the HoH bathroom.
  • The memory wall now has 16 spots on it.  Coaches on top, 3 hgs below each coach.
  • Power of Veto competition is today.  Willie, Kara, Frank, Shane, Daniele and Wil will compete - JoJo to host.
  • Willie would prefer to vote out Kara - he is working very closely with Frank (with Boogies encouragement) and Frank and Willie seem to hope to work together & help each other stay in the house.
  • Britney and Janelle appear to be working closely together - both want Frank out badly to hurt Boogies team.  They have spent hours trying to convince Willie that Frank is the one that needs to go.
  • However - the Coaches MAY get to enter the game in a few weeks - another reason to want Frank, seen as a VERY strong player, out.
  • That possibility of the coaches entering was discussed by Britney and Janele around 3:50am - Britney and Janelle laughed that Willie might be upset to know they might enter the game.
  • Britney and Janelle don't know if Boogie thinks they will enter the game (thats why I say the MAY - not they WILL - doesn't seem 100% confirmed yet).
  • I do think Kara's Playmate secret is out (heard Janelle mention she was a Playmate of the Year).
  • Willie's secret is also out - at least I heard someone ask him if people were allowed to smoke on Survivor.  That to me means they know he has connections.

I THINK those are the major points - lots of things we learned about the people and gameplay.  Like Janelle and Britney can't figure out what Dan was thinking with his 3 picks.  Daniele seems depressed, Kara was very weepy last night.  Ashley apparently hurt herself (back?) pretty badly in a competition, she was on some serious meds last night and is really havign problems moving today.  The girls drank last night in an agreement with the guys to let them drink tonight (rationing the booze).  Janelle REALLY doesn't like Boogie and sees him as a big threat in the house.  Ian is not doing well in the house - sorry folks - just a matter of time before he goes, same with Jenn it seems.

Ok - thats all for now.  POV results when they are known.  Feeds look GREAT on my iPhone... not super pleased yet with them on my laptop to be totally honest.

Backyard Photo Posted by CBS - Podcast Is a Hit Again!

Hey all, just a quickie note on this Monday.  Since our podcast not a lot has gone on with Big Brother but there are a couple things to note:

  • The house guests entered the house sometime on Saturday and CBS released a picture - not worth posting here, if you really want to see it take a look at my post on ilovereality.com.  HGs walking into the house, arms raised, seen it before.
  • Today CBS released the typical 'backyard' photo of the houseguests we have been seeing every year of late.  Since we are not supposed to know yet who the four returning house guests are, they held a towel in front of their faces (see below).  Most of us online are in agreement thought that it looks like (L-R) Mike Boogie, Britney, Dan and Janelle.  And that is my edited picture by the way, yes with my magical (cough) 'photoshopping' skills I added their faces.

The other 'news' if we can call it that is that our podcast is doing really well - we briefly made it into the top five for audio TV & Film podcasts on iTunes which is no small feat when you look at the competition.  We got that high last year on a couple of occasions too but that was much later in the season.  We appreciate all of you taking the time to listen to it and especially reviewing it on iTunes if you can because that also helps with our ranking (and we lost all the old reviews since Scott had to change how it was streamed).  Thanks to all of you that listen!  See Scott's previous post for all the ways you can tune into it if you haven't heard it yet!
