Hey there, Another quickie to keep you guys in the loop.
The POV ceremony was on Saturday and Cody didn't use it as we expected. Frankie is the guys target and even though they haven't told him yet I think he suspects it and as of this writing they plan to tell him shortly before the actual eviction show that he is going.
However, as of now they do not know the show will happen today (Monday), and if Big Brother doesn't warn them he may be caught off guard - of course Derricks style all season has been to let the evictees know they were going, Christine being the one 'blindside' I can think of.
Folks on Twitter still seem very confused with the term "live" as Julie uses it. This week there will be two evictions, Tuesday and Wednesday. Both will be called 'live' evictions but Tuesdays will take place today and be taped and shown on Tuesday. Wednesdays will actually be live as it happens. This particular format / setup has taken place once a season since Big Brother six (they may have skipped a season in there - I just remember the furor when the feeds were down for an extended period that first time in BB6). Note: This has NOTHING to do with the fact Frankie is the one likely to leave - this episode would have been taped no matter who was leaving.
The HGs have been told then need to get up early today to provide footage for Big Brother After Dark. That should have been a tip off that something was up but so far they seem to not realize that means the feeds will be off for an extended period or they think the footage will be used later in the week.
At some point today the feeds will cut away and if they follow last years schedule they will not return until Tuesday evening after the taped "live" show airs. The audience for the show taping tody will most likely be friends and family of CBS staff (but we still got word last year that Andy had won HoH). When the feeds do return we should then see a house that had been "Frankieless" for about 24 hours and get an idea of who may be going next.
There are only four episodes left. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday (highlights show) and then the finale next Wednesday after the Survivor premiere.
Indeed the feeds went offline about 9:20am this morning. So expect them to be off for 30 hours or so.
I'll actually plug two shows I am watching as something you might check out while you wait out the feeds.
Big Brother Australia started a week ago today and you can usually catch the episodes on Youtube. I have a play list of episodes you can find here: BBAU 2014. Episodes air 6 days a week (all but Sunday), there are no live feeds, and the format is much different from the USA & Canada version and much more "fun." Check it out!
Utopia, the new series on Fox that started a couple of weeks ago is entering its 3rd week and there has been loads of drama (too much for some) - while not doing well in the ratings - it IS apparently looking better when DVR replays are factored in (I'm guessing a lot of Big Brother fans recording and watching later).
