Well, today/tonight unexpectedly got a little interesting...
For most of the afternoon there wasn't a lot going on. Mostly just fun in the sun and kitchen counter talks, but later things started to get a little nuts. Typically people wait until after they have been nominated to self destruct, but apparently that is just not Joey's way of doing things. She decided first that it would be a good idea to confront the HGs about the whole "house vote" for a replacement nominee thing that Caleb has been supposedly doing. That put a lot of people on the spot. Most of the reactions were to be really uncomfortable and avoid the question.
After "calling people out" about the house vote, Joey then started talking to various people, starting with Zach, about how if she had to choose, she would put Devin up and out this week. Zach played along with her and talked about the perks of Devin going instead of her (even though technically Devin is one of his secret alliance members) and they both made some good points.
But THEN... Joey decided it would be a good idea to go and actually tell Devin that he was her target and her vote was for him to leave this week. Devin immediately had to go and tell everyone what Joey told him.
And then the retells started...
And kept going...and going..and going...
The amusing thing is, while Joey's plan was VERY poorly executed, and Caleb will probably never nominate Devin because he needs him as a bigger target than himself next week, her terrible game play did get everyone talking about Devin. Suddenly Zach, Derrick, Cody, and all of the girls minus Amber found themselves talking about how incredibly awful, creepy, and annoying Devin is. Personally all I see is Brendon when I look at/listen to him. And that's not a good thing.
Then everyone went back to normal for just a little while. Well.. as normal as things in this year's BB house get.
Then, as if Joey hadn't already done enough damage to Devin's BB reputation, he decided to make it that much worse. Brittany apparently said something to Devin that he didn't like. I'm not clear on the details since I missed this particular conversation, but the next thing you know, here come the Devin dramatics.
See, if anyone was unclear on this fact, Devin is a father. He has a little girl and it was her birthday. I only know this because he told each person in the house at least 10 million times today. Ok that's a little bit of an exaggeration..but only a little one. Anyway, apparently it wasn't that Brittany insulted him. It was that she did it on his daughter's birthday. HOW! DARE! SHE!
Whatever it was Brittany said to Devin made her feel bad enough to want to try to apologize to him. So she headed for the HOH room where Devin was busy whining to Caleb about how he had been insulted on his daughter's birthday of all days. Brittany asked if she could talk to Devin and he told her "Well I don't have anything to say to you" but also grudgingly said he would listen to what she had to say. He didn't listen though. As soon as Brittany started trying to apologize, motor mouth Devin decided to take control of the conversation. He kept going on and on about sheets and lotion and his daughters birthday and how he doesn't give a shit about the other HGs...he only cares about his little girl. He kept telling Brittany he couldn't believe she could sit here and talk to him about sheets and lotion on his daughter's birthday. Eventually Brittany literally had to tell him: "you need to stop saying bed sheets and lotion". It seriously got THAT ridiculous. The whole thing ended with Devin telling Brittany to do him a favor and not talk to him, and Brittany going down to the hammock to shed some tears to Paola about the situation.
Not much else of note really happened. Caleb's obsession with Amber continues to grow to new creepy heights as he talks about "putting a ring on it" and moving there to be with her. Meanwhile she doesn't really seem to notice his existence more than once a day. Donny continues to make Donnyisms to my delight. The "Bomb Squad" alliance (I'm so ashamed of myself for even using that term) continues to make plans to evict people in the order they desire and to win HOH's etc.. The same way all large alliances in the beginning of the game do. Jocasta continues to change bow ties several times a day. Nicole, Hayden, and Derrick continue to make minimal feed appearances, and Frankie and Zach continue to plot their final two deal details.
That's pretty much it. Joey isn't even nominated yet, but I'm pretty sure I can predict that barring anything crazy happening she will be going home. I guess she will be Annie (BB 12) part two and the Team America party of three twist will have to be taken back to the drawing board. Hopefully Devin and Joey continue to self destruct and hopefully there will be a booze delivery in the coming days so we can squeeze a few more dramatics out of week one.
