The First Big Blindside Coming?

I'm amazed that since Monday's initial 'shock' by Frank and Mike Boogie at Shane putting Frank up, things have been really calm.

Frank and Boogie are talking about who to talk to and what to say but they just don't seem overly concerned.  This morning the two were up and alone for quite a while before Joe joined them.  Boogie suggested to Frank that he should let Britney know that, on the off chance Frank were to go home on Thursday, Boogie would try to win the coaches competition and then trade Ian or Jenn for Shane and thus really damage Britney's game.

It will be interesting to see if Frank or Boogie try that tactic and if so if it has any impact on Britney who, along with Janelle, is more and more sure that the coaches will enter the game on Thursday (so the threat won't matter).

It still strikes me as odd for Mike Boogie to be so calm, I thought he would be relatively calm but I haven't seen the campaigning I expected.  Joe has also been fairly calm and that in itself would be enough to make me paranoid were I Frank or Mike.

The house is now on an inside lockdown and I expect it to be until the live show on Thursday.  Not sure if the Coaches will get a chance to join tomorrow but I would expect an endurance competition and some potential fireworks no matter who goes tomorrow.  Right now Mike Boogie is going to be stunned if he see's Frank walk out on Thursday.

The Power Of Veto Ceremony Results Are In.

As Ash described in her most recent post, things got a bit crazy last night with Janelle (mostly) convincing Britney of the need to get Frank out before the coaches enter the game as she now fully expects they will.  The pane came to fruition this afternoon and Frank is now on the block, replacing Ashley.

I wouldn't even dream of predicting who will go home on Thursday at this point.  Danielle should be the swing vote if Ian and Jenn both vote to evict Joe and Ashley and Wil voting to evict Frank.

Right after the POV meeting the feeds were (are) all a chatter with people reacting.  Britney lied and told Mike Boogie that they decided they needed to split the vote because otherwise Mike's team would have three votes and thus control who was evicted and they wanted to make sure Joe goes home and not Ashley.  She has assured him that the plan is still to vote out Joe.  Mike seemed to buy the story and proceeded to coach Frank and Ian to stay calm and they would need to start working on Danielle for her vote.  Shane also told Joe the same story.

Ian was a victim of collateral damage because it seems Britney used something he said earlier this week as a reason to put up Frank to control the vote.  I believe the jist of it was Britney claimed Ian wouldn't promise safety for Shane down the road.  Ian is not happy at all because he said what Britney claimed isn't accurate.

Never the less.  It will now be Frank or Joe walking out the door on Thursday.  Will whomever walks out return?  Since we know Kara and JoJo are in sequester we assume at least one HG may get the opportunity to return.  My guess is that if the producers want Frank or Joe to return they will set up a skill competition similar to the one Brendon defeated Lawon in last year.  Both Joe and Frank are much stronger competitors than JoJo or Kara.

Who do you think is going?  Was this a good or bad move by Shane?

Boogie has more material for the DR. Nutty Nominations 

Boogie told Frank tonight that he is going to go into the Diary Room and do a bit about how he and Frank are running the house.  Saying that the two of them got a player (Shane) to nominate who THEY wanted and not his coach (Britney).

Yes indeed, somehow Shane decided to nominate Joe and Ashley instead of Joe and Frank which was who he had been saying he would go with - even saying as much to Frank after the Coaches Competition.

Shane seems to believe he has an agreement with Frank to work together - however Frank now feels he is so safe he shouldn't even try to win HoH next week.

Feel free to analyze and discuss the nominations to your hearts content - Shane wants Joe gone - but I can just see something weird happening.  What if Ian competes for and wins the POV and then saves Ashley - who will Shane put up then?  Frank, Jenn or Danielle? 

The other event was the Coaches Competition (Screen cap on right) - sounds like it was different yet again in that several things went on.  Here is what I have figured out or guessed from the live feeds.

  • Janelle won and saved Wil
  • Ian won $3,000 somehow
  • Britney made Joe a Have Not
  • Ian is also a Have Not (not sure who made him one)
  • Frank may or may not be a have not.
  • They won a Sushi Party somehow.
  • Boogie may have won $6,000

Live Eviction Show Tonight - Willie Hantz Charged With OWI

A quickie since not much has gone on today.

JoJo is going - she knows it.  So don't be shocked with a 6-0 vote.  If its less it is sympathy votes or Joe's cigarette deal which may or may not still be on.  Boogie telling her it is better to go now because she may have a shot to get back in the house seems to have made her feel better - really?

Anyways - she is going.  See if Janelle offers to hug her - if she does JoJo has said she won't do it.

We also got a tease that Dr. Will will be on a pre-recorded segment tonight analyzing the coaches.  I'm tired of coach talk - it seems to be filler to me.

And finally.... Willie got himself arrested last night for OWI as reported by TMZ (mug shot on left).  Details of arrest include that the police were called to reports of a fight in a parking lot and when they arrived they saw a vehicle at the back of the lot - Willie reportedly jumped out and was caught after a short foot pursuit.  He is no longer in jail - reoported to be out on bond.  Here is the arrest info from the jail.  I'm thinking this won't be reported on tonight's Big Brother episode ;)

Power of Veto Meeting - Its Danielle or JoJo

Monday's Power of Veto meeting went just as expected.  Shane used the POV that he won on Saturday and saved himself.  Frank then put up Danielle in his place, she was the only other person to vote agains him last Thursday.

Come this Thursday the house guests will vote between JoJo and Danielle - there will only be a total of six votes since Willie and Kara both left (under different circumstances) last week.

Janelle's team of Wil, Joe and Ashley will probably vote to evict JoJo (as of now), Boogies team of Jenn and Ian may as well - Britney hopes to convince them to vote out Danielle and then with Shane's vote to evict Daneielle force a tie that Frank could break.  But as things stand now I'm not even sure Shane will vote to evict Danielle as JoJo is strongly associated with Willie and is much more negative than Danielle who is working hard to 'kiss up' to people (like Ian at the left on Monday).

Britney's advice on Monday was to lay low, try not to make waves and not to hang out solely with Shane.  She followed some, but not all of Brit's advice and spent a lot of time sitting around talking with Shane.  Britney even told Shane yesterday that he might just need to vote out JoJo so he appears to be a part of the 'group.'

Willie Gone, POV Competition Results, Big Brother Gossip Show Tonight!

Hey hey hey...  did you hear about Willie?  Did you NOT read my last post?  Come on now!  Willie has been out of the house fo 24 hours at this point and thanks to his antics one of his teamates may go this week as well.  Here is whats up....

Wille was indeed given the boot and it was his own doing although looking and listening back, Joe was partly responsible from the sounds of it in that he 'egged' it on until Willie burst.  We'll dicuss it in a couple hours on the podcast.

If I didn't mention it last night(I think i did), Frank then nominated JoJo and Shane.

Today the Power of Veto competition was held. Playing along with Frank, Jojo and Shane was Ian, Ashley and Wil.  Joe was the host.

After a couple hours the feeds came back and we learned that the competition involved memory - and Shane won it for the second time in a row.

So Shane is now safe, and it looks like a pretty sure thing that Danielle will go up in his place, however there has been a little chatter of putting up one of Janelle's HGs to get out a better player than JoJo or Daniele.  As of this writing Boogie and Frank seem to agree that its best to get Danielle and thus Dan as well.

Tonight we have our weekly Big Brother Gossip show/podcast.  You can listen live at 10pm Eastern - 7pm BB time at the following ustream location - http://www.ustream.tv/channel/paulisded  If you miss it then you probably won't  see this because Scott will have already posted info on how to listen to the recording!

And there you have it - tomorrow's TV show will be most interesting.

Coaches Competition Results - Have Have Nots - Will Willie Last?

The Big Brother Live Feeds were off for a couple hours this afternoon for the Coaches Competition and when they returned for less than 10 minutes around 3:35pm we found out that Janelle won the coaches competition and chose to 'save' Ashley (she can't be nominated).

Janelle also apparently selected the four "have nots" and we found out they are Willie, Shane, Jojo and Ian (Ian may have volunteered). The have nots will also get pudding and pork rinds this week to go with their slop diet since apparently thats the food "America" selected for them.  Joe, who is very anti-Willie said that he will cook for Ian but not the other three.

Willie was very mad - it seems to me he is frustrated that Shane and Jojo are being lumped in with him and didn't think it was fair.  He was heard to say that he was going to be sure he was evicted this week, and he was going to take the heat off Jojo and Shane.  Some of the things he said made people think he might try to get thrown out before Thursday to ensure he goes next.

Around 3:45pm BB time, Willie stormed up to the HoH room where Janelle, Joe, Boogie and Frank were celebrating his situation - you can watch the rest below.

<or not - video removed - working to get it back - (grumble!)>

For those that can't watch the video - at the end of it Willie is heard to say to Jojo, "I'm gonna get in a fight in this house and knock somebody out. That's what I'm gonna do." The feeds then cut away for  few seconds.

After this the feeds came back for a minute or two more but nothing of note happened.  Then they cut away to trivia and have been off for almost two hours.  Nominations may be going on.

I'm calling it - tonight's evictee will be.....

I'm being really nice here and not putting the name in the title - I'm not even putting it in the first few lines of this article to spare those reading this with their RSS readers.  But lets just say that I am 99.99% sure on who is going now after Wil was asked to break the bad news to Kara.  Yeah - he told her that he is voting to evict her.  Of course there is the slimmest of chances things will change but i doubt it.

CBS will stage the vote for most dramatic effect.  One of the "Diversity" alliance will vote first and then someone voting to evict Frank.  In the end I'd expect Ashley to be the last into the DR to vote - it will be 4-3 and her vote will mean a tie or Kara eviction......  one or two commercial breaks during voting?  I wonder.

There is a rumor I just saw on the twitterverse this afternoon that every HG from here on out will be sequestered.  I have not seen an official source but if it is the case that may be interesting.  Not that HGs that get evicted and come back ever fare well.  I actually feel a bit bad for Kara but no moreso than for Jodi who really got the shaft last week.

Willie has a blowup with Frank last night. Who ended up in worse shape?

Have you heard about the fight that took place last night yet? Surely you have.

Read Scott's last post to get up to speed if you missed all the 'goings ons' earlier in the day.

The fight between Frank and Willie came about because Willie got word from Britney that Frank was going around saying that Willie was saying, "homosexual slurs" about Wil (see the youtube clip below to listen to exactly what Willie said and how he said it).  Willie decided to confront Frank on it and that was the spark.  Frank said he only said Willie was making fun of Wil but that didn't calm Willie down.  Willie was very frustrated that he felt he has been lobbying all week to keep Frank safe and now he found out Frank was bad mouthing him. Franks main issue in his reply to Willie was that he was mad Willie seemed to be playing with the votes - trying to make them come out a certain way instead of just working for a 7-1 vote (assuming Danielle will vote to evict Frank no matter what).

In the end Willie came out looking much the worse.  He is now determined to try to get Frank out, the problem as I see it is he doesn't have the support.  Willie thinks he has Ashley's support but Ashley seems on board with Joe, Frank, Ian, Wil and Jenn as a part of the new "Diversity" alliance (the members are all on Boogie and Janelle's team but neither Janelle or Boogie had a part in its formation).

I'd say that around 36 hours from the first live eviction, Kara will be heading out on a 5-3 vote.  I'd also imagine the producers want to see Frank stay as well so expect little encouragement to change the current feelings in the house.

Flashback times to see the action:

  • Tuesday 2:13pm Cam 3 - Willie makes fun of Wil to Brit and Frank.
  • Tuesday 2:53pm Cam 1 - Frank tells Joe and Jenn what Willie said.
  • Tuesday 10:15pm Cam 1 - Willie get upset in the HoH room about the "gay slur" rumors.
  • Tuesday 10:24pm Cam 3 - Willie goes off on Frank - lasts over 10 minutes.

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.
