A Daytime Fight???




One of the frustrating aspects of this season is this cast's body clock. They sleep almost all day, and then the fireworks occur past my bedtime.

I figured today would be no exception. Sunday's usually a quiet day in the house, with lots of sunbathing and napping. Not this time.

Russell was in pretty good spirits earlier in the day, but was also throwing out a wisecrack or two about Chima every now and then (mainly about her cackle). Chima was camped out in the HOH for most of the day, constantly making a few cracks about Russell.

Chima finally came downstairs, mainly because it was getting close to movie time. Russell immediately started in on Chima, chiding her for claiming she was supposed to be on America's Next Top Model. Her response? "Well, you should've been on America's Next Top Terrorist." Oh boy.

You can guess what happened next - the two of them screaming at each other. She kept calling him a terrorist; he screamed at her over and over she's a racist. Chima eventually backed down, claiming that she calls him a terrorist because he terrorizes everybody in the house. Um, yeah. (Note Lydia's smile as she watches the chaos she created.)

The feeds eventually went down, and we're back with the Michelle and Lydia sunning themselves as the "haves" watch the Jeremy Piven movie.

POV Underway!


Besides Lydia, Chima, and Russell, the players are Jeff (chosen by Russell, much to Jessie's chagrin), Kevin, and Natalie. Michelle is also bummed that she's not playing, as she feels she'll go up if either of the nominees are taken down. It appears that it's one of those contests where each player goes out on his own to play, and then the winning time is determined after everybody plays.

After the players were chosen, Natalie had a little whisper with Russell telling him that he shouldn't worry as he's not going home. I wonder what "Scamper" has planned.

Overnight Report




Last night, I was fully ready to sit through all of Showtime. Unfortunately, I gave up about an hour in. The house was annoyingly calm - Jessie and Natalie playing chess, then Jessie and Lydia playing pool. Jeff napping in the hammock, with Jordan working out. A few others sitting inside eating.

Russell was sitting by himself this entire time, and I made a big mistake turning off the television at the precise moment he suddenly had a huge smile and headed indoors. I should have known the wheels were turning in his head, and he had decided to make a move.

Not right away, though. Instead, it's the Jessie and Natalie show. Jessie really has figured out the ramificaitons of Jeff holding the mystery power, while Chima has suddenly realized that her week of HOH will mean nothing. "What the fuck did I win HOH for if the fucking mystery power is that you can take people down and put up whoever you want? Really? What am I here for then? That's all my power. You usurped my power. All I got is lotion and a luke warm shower. I would have a fit during the live show and then I'd camp my ass inside the DR."

Jessie's game of pool with Lydia was to inform her that Michelle apparently was spreading stories that Lydia would target Jeff. Of course, she runs to Jeff with this info, and Jordan advises Jeff that she just talk to Michelle. The two actually have a calm conversation that turns into a pep talk from Michelle.

Inside, Natalie (and Chima) is pissed that Jessie used her as the source of this story to Lydia. They (somewhat joingly, IMHO) threaten to cut him out of their communications.

Around this same time, Michelle and Russell have a somewhat civil conversation while they play pool. Well, it starts off civil as Russell subtly pushes the conversation, blaming her for everything that happened the previous week.

Finally pissed, she tell Russell to "fuck off" and heads upstairs. Michelle is pissed that Russell attacked her, and says she thinks it's to put a wedge between her and Jeff. It must have worked, as she reports that she also thinks that Jeff has the mystery power, and will use it to save Russell. She also spills all about Jeff, including their final two deal and the fact that he was Casey's sympathy vote.

Jump ahead a bit and Chima is joined by Kevin, Michelle, and Natalie in the HOH. Chima has some very interesting comments. "The blue states aren't watching this show. The blue states are reading books. No offense red states - the red states are watching this show. The blue states would vote for you (Kevin) or me...Russell was on the bottom. Believe that." Ah yes, she again threw out the "terrorist" slur.

Michelle finally leaves, only to have to deal with Russell again. "You're a nutcase...Ronnie was on point on everything he said about you. You are absolutely fucking psycho."

Natalie comes out to find out what's happening, and when Russell complains that she was up there spilling everybody's secrets, Natalie nods to the affirmative while claiming they were talking about "nothing, really".

After another ugly confrontation, Michelle heads back upstairs to listen to Chima complain some more about her power being usurped.

Everybody who doesn't have the feeds really needs to sign up now to see all of this silliness!

Jordan and Jeff's First Disagreement


Jordan's talk with Chima, Natalie, and Jessie has seemed to work, as she now wants to evict Russell. She doesn't trust him, and thinks he'd go after them. Jeff's not so sure about this, and thinks they need an ally because Jessie would definitely put them up.

Nominations In!



No surprise, it's Russell and Lydia.

Lydia is not being shown on the feeds at all (diary room?), while Russell is trying to act like it's not bothering him...outside of a crack about being nominated "by my own team".

Russell is now up in the HOH "congratulating" his teammates (Chima, Natalie, and Jessie), and tells Chima not to feel bad. "I don't feel bad at all."

Have/Have Not Results




Although the Jeremy Piven footage was filmed earlier in the day, I do believe that it may be tied into the Have/Have Not competition that was held just an hour or so ago.

The "have nots" are Jeff, Lydia, Michelle, and Kevin. Russell also won $10,000. I believe all of the "haves" also get to watch Piven's movie.

Speaking of Russell, he knows he's in trouble. Chima just brought Jordan into the loop, and she has promised that she will vote to evict Russell if that's what Chima wants. We'll see if that happens, especially as Jeff has promised Russell he'll pull him down if he wins veto.

Ooooh, Jeff and Russell's conversation just turned interesting. Jeff asked Russell who he would vote to evict - Jessie or Natalie. Russell replied that it would be Jessie, as he's made it personal by making a big deal about the money he won (Jessie also apparently won money, but of course that's different). Jeff's response? "You just have to have hope that things will change...nothing is official until it's official"

Nominations will be happening soon.

Natalie's Big Plan: Can It Work?





Although Ronnie has been working hard to get that needed extra vote to ensure his safety, nobody seems to be biting. He worked Jordan and Jeff especially early this morning, but they apparently ducked their heads under the covers and started kissing (at least that's what she told the other girls today).

Over the last two days, Natalie has been pushing Jessie to pursue a tricky maneuver that would shock the house. By pretending that poor Ronnie will be the first unanimous elimination, she's pushing for Jordan or Michelle to give him a sympathy vote.

Will she be able to convince either of them? Doubtful. I know if I was either Michelle or Jordan I'd simply ask Natalie to then be his sympathy vote. If Natalie hadn't already attempted to create problems with a rogue vote this ploy may be more successful. I doubt anybody would be willing to take the risk at Ronnie once again surviving.

As I type this, another minor battle has began in multiple rooms of the house. It all began with Russell mad at Michelle for joking that Russell has an "erectile dysfunction" problem, and spread to other "lies" that somehow include Kevin. We all know the only time Kevin even speaks to anybody other than Lydia is when his name is besmirched, so he's pleading his case to King Jessie. Michelle and Chima are hashing things out in the bathroom, and the rest of the crew (Russell, Jeff, Natalie(!),and Jordan are outside.

Jeff is doing his best to be the voice of reason, advising Russell that he shouldn't get so hung up over little lies with people that you're eventually going to be friendly with again the following week. Russell, though, thinks it's bullshit to act like everything's okay with people you don't respect.

(Actually, I think Russell has determined that Michelle may be his match in the brains department, and is masterminding this non-controversy to undermine her supposed growing power.)

There's again talk about a house meeting (bad move!).

Uh Oh, Chima


Chima is sitting outside with Lydia and Ronnie, complaining about Russell (of course). For somebody who labelled Braden a racist, she's not exactly acting politically correct herself. She said that Russell is no Kayzar, and is "giving his people a bad name". She half-joked that she's going to keep calling Russell a terrorist because America hates Middle-easterners.

She also claimed that after Russell is gone she doesn't care who wins. Yeah, right.

Aftermath of Last Night's Fights


It's a pretty subdued house today - BB let them sleep in, and as you may expect Jessie and Natalie took full advantage. Russell and Michelle were among the first to wake up, and they hashed things out from the previous evening. Russell admitted to sharing the PhD secret (which IMHO is not much of an issue), and Michelle confessed to various other minor sins.

By far, Michelle worked the hardest today, having lengthy conversations with both Lydia and Jordan. Both were somewhat receptive, but Jordan says Jeff still isn't sure who to believe.

She's currently chatting with Jeff (along with Jordan), and he just told Michelle that he believes her story.

A Little Bit of Excitement (Not Really)


Kevin apparently snuck a bite or two of something besides slop this morning, and just received word that he would receive an extra day of slop as a punishment. Luckily, it wasn't a penalty nomination as some had predicted.

Natalie's taking credit for tattling, but what was especially laughable was her idea to go to Russell with a bunch of lies about Michelle. Her and Jessie concocted a story that Michelle really wants Ronnie to stay, and was asking if they are on board.

Afterwards, Natalie gloated that Russell believed their story, but instead he ran outside and laughed about the situation with Michelle. Unfortunately, little of that was shown as the Kevin situation flared up.
