Tonight's Big Brother Gossip Show

This will be a must listen, as Willie Hantz has agreed to endure questioning by our Big Brother Gossip Show panel. He tells us that no topic is off limits, which should make for a fun conversation. The show will be posted here shortly after it happens, but you can listen live at 10 pm EST at http://ustream.tv/channel/paulisded.

Do you have any questions for him? Post them here and you may get your answers tonight!

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 ;)

Big Brother #14, Episode 6 Recap

Life without Willie. These words seemed to be an impossibility just a week ago. He was our General, as my friend Colette Lala called him. Our very own Tyrion (and just a bit taller).  A "One Man Revolution", as Tom Morello sings on his most recent album. Viva Le Revolution! "Little Willie" did indeed go home, but life goes on in the Big Brother house...just with a bit less intensity. Ok, a lot less intensity.

Tonight's show should feel condensed, since we didn't get our normal nomination conclusion this past Sunday. That means we get noms, a veto comp, and a veto meeting...plus replays of King Willie's exit and I'm sure a bit of cheese. That's a lot of material in 42 minutes.

We start off with the typical rundown of the entire season to date, just in case you forgot what has happened in the past three days. The actual show commences with yet another replay of Willie's ouster, and the house reaction to Allison Grodner's announcement. Ian recounts his front row eyewitness view of the Joe/Willie encounter, saying that even though he was clad only in a towel he wanted to break it up. "I was extremely scared at that point in time."

Britney does what she does best this season - whine. Everybody hates her, her team's backs are against the wall, blah blah blah. She really sounds like Rachel this year...without the victories. Shane says he was "frustrated" and "petrified" because he knows that he is now a prime target for Frank. Just in case you didn't get that the first time, Dan repeats almost verbatim this thoery. Shane, Jojo, and Daniele are in trouble.

Leaving the whiners downstairs, Janelle, Boogie, and Frank head upstairs to celebrate. "We now get to nominate and evict somebody else", shouts Boogie. "Two for one this week. It's happy hour, baby!"

Jenn joins the party animals, and Janelle asks about this week's targets. Claiming it's a risky move, Boogie says he's pushing for Daniele and "one of our team", so Shane and Jojo aren't even in the thing. Then whoever wins the veto would use it, to be replaced by either Shane or Jojo. Wait, what?

Janelle isn't too keen on what Boogie is saying, and says in the diary room that she still doesn't trust him even though she's working with him. "I don't want any of my players going up, even as a pawn." Jenn is also incredulous. "I'm not interested in this plan, because in Big Brother the pawns go home." Frank, though, thinks it's an interesting plan.

Meanwhile, Shane and Jojo are drowning in their own tears downstairs. Shane figured he would have been on the block anyway, but with Willie gone "I don't know what to expect". Jojo decides that she "deserves" a shot from Frank, and barges into the HOH. "I at least deserve a chance."

Jojo does her best Britney impression, complaining how it isn't fair and she "swears on my grandma's life that I was going to have your back. Obviously, I've shown that I'm loyal to those I align myself with." Yes, my dear, and that's why you are in this situation. Frank counters that he told her last week that if she voted for him "I know that I can trust you". Well, that didn't happen, thanks to King Willie's demands. In case you didn't recall, CBS replays that footage. Jojo's response is that Willie "put it in my head that you can't be trusted". Wow, this is a nothing conversation, and Jojo's diary room explanations don't aid her in this cause.

Three days late (in TV time, at least), it's finally nomination time. The keys are pulled by Jenn, Ian, Joe, Wil, and Daniele. Yes, Jojo and Shane are nominated. Frank comes right out and says that it is because they were aligned with Willie. Shane says he saw it coming, but Daniele is worried that she will be the replacement nominee if either of the noms win the veto.

Britney pulls her two players into the Have-Not room to cheer them up. Wait, it's Britney. What was I thinking? No, she plays up the pity party instead, babbling about how much this week is going to suck. Wow, she really is a terrible coach. "We're all having to go down because of Willie." She continues in the diary room, but she's sounding more and more like Daniele every day. Britney also tells them both to lay low this week. Yep, don't fight at all. Nice work.

Meanwhile, Boogie is reminding Frank that Daniele has had a pretty easy ride so far this season. His plan for Frank is to attempt to "nurture" relationships with both of the nominees, since at least one of them will still be in the house.

It's now time to pick the veto players, and Frank draws out Ian's name. Shane, who doesn't care what name he picks, gets Ashley's name. Both Dan and Daniele want her name pulled, but it isn't meant to be as Wil is pulled by Jojo. The host is Joe (ugh). Daniele is pissed, as "I have to watch my fate be determined by every one else who is getting to play". Hey, I was able to transcribe a Daniele diary room statement!

Before we get to the veto comp, we have to have some idiotic filler. Ashley wants to have babies and get married, and she says "looks aren't huge for me". Please, kill me now as she goes through everything she likes in a man.

Ok, it is game time. Joe is dressed as a mariachi, and it's obviously a Mexican-themed competition, complete with margaritas. The contestants are dressed as giant chips, and there are giant dipping bowls. They must reach in these bowls and grab the "ingredients" listed on the menu.

After lots of babbling about "do or die" and "controlling my destiny", the game begins. In case you forgot the rules, Ian repeats them for us before another Long Island cliche from Jojo. Ian adds that he has an advantage because he has a photographic memory, but we also have to endure more Ashley craziness. Seriously, she is becoming another Daniele.

Ok, time to fast forward to the conclusion. Shane is the first to lock in his results, followed by Ian, Jojo, Frank, and Wil. For some reason, Ashley continues on...and on and on. "She is slower than pond water", says Joe (I think).

The results start with Ashley, who had 13 of 16 right. Wil had a perfect board to take the lead, but so does Frank, Jojo, Ian...and after commercials, so does Shane. This week's POV goes to Shane!

For once, Britney gets to actually celebrate (with a little help from margaritas), and Shane heads up to chat with Frank and Boogie. "Sorry I screwed up your plans", he says. "Now you know I'm legit." Boogie says that they're not unhappy with these results, and Shane says that he does want to work with them. He claims that he doesn't care about the coaches, and that it is an individual game. Boogie babbles some metaphor about a wounded animal, calling Shane a "wounded pet". "If he can be loyal to Willie, imagine what he can do for me!" Boogie tells Shane to not breath a word of what they're talking about to Britney, Jojo, or Dan, and after he leaves tells Frank he believes he can trust him.

Of course, talking is what Shane does next, as Britney grills him on what went on. Oh wait, he really doesn't, as he denies that they made any deals with him. Nicely played, at least as far as what CBS is showing us tonight.

Dan is now talking to Daniele, and has an interesting theory that if he's seen attempting to help her it will actually make it worse for her. Has the Britney germs infected the whole house? In the diary room, he claims that this is a "coaching technique" to "light a fire underneath" her. Um, whatever. Shane walks in, and this gives Dan an opportunity to leave. Daniele jumps right in and asks who Shane is going to vote for. Just like last week, he claims that he doesn't know but that Jojo is on his team.

Instead of lighting a fire under her, she just heads into another room and cries about how she "has nobody...I feel so rejected and unwanted". This could be my favorite moment of the episode.

At the same time, Shane heads into the have-not room to inform Jojo that he wants to convince Frank to put up somebody besides Daniele as the replacement nominee. "I'm going to tell him to put up Wil. Backdoor him. Get him out of this game." Jojo loves this plan! They're going to tell Frank that if any of them win the next HOH, including Daniele, they won't put up Frank. Instead, they'll target Janelle's team.It's the next morning, and Frank and Shane are the earliest outside. After some small talk, Shane launches into his plan. Is Frank buying it? I guess we'll find out in the last segment during the veto ceremony...

...which just happens to be the next segment of the show. Since it is his second week reading these lines, Shane shows a bit of improvement in his script reading, and everybody else does their job before Shane makes the obvious announcement. Frank stands up and..puts up Daniele in his place. Yeah, despite CBS's attempt to create a storyline, Frank does as expected. Frank explains that it is too early to do some risky like nominating Wil, and Daniele complains that it sucks to be up. Jojo adds that she's a "fighter", and that she "wants it way more than she does". Wait, you can't use Dan's football cliches! In 30 seconds, Dan makes up for it by tossing out at least a half dozen other cliches. Make it stop!

There we go for tonight's episode, and I have to say that squeezing that extra segment made this a quicker-paced show than most Wednesday episodes. Take out that awful portion of the show featuring Ashley and you'd actually have a show that makes sense. What do you think? Did Ashley and Daniele annoy you as much as me? Should Frank have put up Wil instead of Daniele? Let us know what you think will happen tomorrow night!

Scott's Initial Impressions

Wow, it's really quiet around here. Where is everybody? Where are the pages and pages of snarky commentary, bikini shots, and the other commentary we have always been known to offer on this silly little site?

I know, I know, I know - it is just as much my fault as anybody's, but home projects that were projected to be completed by the start of the season were pushed back...and then pushed back again. I just sort of assumed some of our many other correspondents would pick up the slack, but I guess real world issues are also affecting their lives.

So I'm here to fill the void a bit with this list of initial impressions. There's no real rhyme or reason for this analysis, as today isn't a real noteworthy day in the Big Brother timeline. I've just been thinking about these folks today, and thought I'd throw out some observations.

Already Evicted:

Jodi Rollins. What is there to say about a person who first showed up on our television around 20 minutes into the broadcast and was out of the house before the conclusion of the show? Not much, really. She seemed to be a nice person, and reportedly was a so-called "superfan", but judging by her twitter timeline the last few days I don't really think she would have fit in with this crowd. I wish her all the best, but she really didn't have much to contribute.

Kara Monaco. I have a feeling that when the producers decided to book a former Playmate of the Year, they were expecting a brash young lady who preferred to wear as little clothing as possible. They were clearly wrong in that assessment, as she was not only soft-spoken but remained completely covered up her entire time in the house. I mean completely covered up, too. A burka would show more skin than what we normally saw from Kara. She was also completely out of her element in the house, and it is doubtful she has ever seen the show. If she had not been nominated that first week, she probably would have skated for awhile, but her ouster was probably for the best.

Willie Hantz. His story has been widely discussed on this site (most notably by Barefoot Drunk's post a few days ago), but nobody in Big Brother history has crashed and burned like the little brother of some renowned Survivor character. He was handed the HOH after the first competition, and ruled it like he was a King. He made deals with every single person in the house, and was shocked to discover that people actually compare notes. Once things didn't go his way, he flipped out and was given the boot by production. While there are conflicting stories as to what really happened, and the CBS edit did NOTHING to clear them up, the Hantz story is a test case for the higher ups who make contestants watch past seasons while in sequester. You just can't attempt to play a full season in one week.

Current Nominees:

Danielle Murphree. In a season of loons, this woman is easily the looniest. She's supposedly a nurse, but is masquerading as a kindergarten teacher so the house doesn't believe she's smart. Yes, this is her grand plan. She has evil eyes that always seem to be on the verge to disintegrate whatever they're focused on, and constantly talks about her devil Father. The only positive quality I can come up with for her is that she has an ability to turn ANY conversation into being about her. Yeah, she's quite the basket case.

JoJo Spatafora. At first glance, this is the perfect houseguest for me. By the second glance, I'm racing to change to another camera shot. She's from Long Island, and loves to perpetuate the stereotypes of that area. Her voice is a mixture of Fran Drescher and the Jersey Shore morons, and the only thing she seems to talk about is her sexual needs. She also has absolutely no loyalty to anybody. One day she's trying to grab Willie's dick under the covers of the HOH room, and the next she's tearing him apart as the worst person in the world. Granted, the Willie situation put her in a bad spot, and she was attempting to do some damage control, but allies are always collateral damage for the other side to attack.

The Rest of the Noobs:

Ashley Iocco. I have such mixed feelings about this bondage actress/mobile spray tan owner. Her pre-show videos annoyed me to no end, but I warmed up to her in the first few days. The "date" with Ian indicated that she was a good sport, but last night's "panic attack" and paranoia over a non-existent deal between Ian and Frank was ridiculous. She could easily crash and burn any day now, or she could settle down and be a contender for the finals. I doubt it could happen, but she probably has the best chance of any of the new females.

Frank Eudy. I know people who absolutely abhor the son of WWE's Psycho Sid, and I completely understand. Apparently, he farts a lot and has horrible body odor, but luckily for me the feeds don't feature Smell-O-Vision. Oh yeah, jumping on the "bully" bandwagon during last week's final plea speech did little to stir up any confidence. Yet I kind of like this goofball. While he hasn't been real successful in competitions so far, outside of last Thursday's HOH victory, he's not a dumb guy and is obviously pretty athletic. If next week's HOH doesn't rally the troops to oust him, he could be a contender.

Ian Terry. Oh boy. While some of my colleagues ADORE this brainiac "superfan", I have yet to see the appeal. Yes, his social awkwardness is kind of entertaining at times, and he did manage to cut the tension during the Frank/Willie battle with a perfect-timed line, but I just don't see any reason to keep him around except that he is little threat to the rest of the house. When your main goal of being in the house is to make Wikipedia, then you're not one to take seriously.

Joe Arvin. Pure shit-stirrer. He single-handedly created the Willie situation (with an assist from Janelle), and arguably should have been booted by egging it on. He has absolutely no loyalties to anybody, and has turned his back on every person he has aligned himself with. Plus, the fact that he named his group "Diversity" is reason enough to dislike this goon (especially since it was the most un-diverse group ever created). Even the one aspect that is supposed to help keep him around, his cooking, has created tension because he wastes too much of the food. It's only a matter of time before we're thankfully free of his over-the-top diary room expressions.

Shane Meaney. Words really cannot express what a dim bulb this guy is. Seriously, his IQ must be well under 100. The female portion of the house supposedly exists only to entertain him, as evidenced by the CBS episode where Kara's desire to plead her case to remain in the house was a come-on in his eyes. Yet he has won both POV's this season, so he is a physical force to be reckoned with, just don't count on him for any expert scheming. Trust me, even adequate scheming may be a stretch.

Wil Heuser. For me, he is the male equivalent of Ashley. I want to like him. I really want to like him, and quite often the "gay Evan Dando" is a fun person. Yet he is also possibly the bitchiest person on this season's cast, and his mood can turn in a heartbeat. I do think he can go quite far this year, though, as he is not only more intelligent than the majority of the house but is quite athletic. I look to him to excel in the endurance competitions.

The Coaches:

Britney Haynes. Oh my, how far one of my faves has fallen. I loved Britney during her season. I adored her! She looks wonderful in a bikini, and was the queen of the snark, a combo that ALWAYS works with me! As one friend pointed out, though, she had a pretty easy road during her season. She was a part of the big crowd that was dominating the season, so she could just sit back and throw out one-liners.

This year, though, I can barely deal with her. While she initially appeared to have picked the dream team of the season (Willie, Shane, JoJo), her big mouth has done her no favors so far this year. Admitting to Willie that she believed the coaches were entering the game sparked last week's huge fights, and the constant lecturing and hectoring pretty much drove Willie to the confrontation that ousted him. She has done little else other than whine and cry the entire time the feeds have been live.

Dan Gheesling. I must admit that I don't quite get the love and adoration I see on my timeline every time he shows up on the feeds. Seriously, it's insane. Any conversation sets these fine people up for lines about how he's showing up the person he's chatting, or that he's gathering the needed information that will save the day for his team.

Guess what? Whatever tidbits he's gleaned from these people have done nothing to help himself or his team. The first two evictees were from his team, and Daniele doesn't inspire a lot of confidence for his future. What was he doing choosing her, Kara, and Jodi? Ok, he had no choice but to take Jodi for his last pick, but still!

I do like Dan, though. He was entertaining during his season, and made the moves needed to win in a year that didn't feature much competition. This belief that he's a Big Brother superstar is ridiculous, though!

Janelle Pierzina. I have such mixed feelings for Janelle. Yes, she's a great competitor during physical contests, and has a knack for getting people to babble about things she shouldn't be hearing. I don't believe her heart is into being a part of a third season of the show, though, and her rivalry with Boogie is nauseating. If the coaches indeed get to enter the game, I don't think she'll be heartbroken if she doesn't make the cut.

Mike "Boogie" Mallin. Talk about mixed feelings. Actually, talk about 90% hatred. I never was a fan of this clown. I have always hated that he dresses like my nine year-old nephew, or that we're supposed to think of him as a legend. I wholeheartedly am disgusted by his lame attempts to recreate the catchphrases and diary room antics from his earlier years with Dr. Will. His lame-brain premature jump off the platform during last week's coach's competition may be my favorite moment of the show so far.

Chip away the clown act, though, and he's actually been the only coach to give adequate advice to his charges. He may be for the most part ignoring Jenn, but that may be the best move for her game. When it comes to Frank and Ian, though, he seems to be working some magic. Most importantly, unlike Britney he doesn't dwell on these decisions. He talks to Frank or Ian, and then goes to take a nap. That's a great way to work!
