This site isn't about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with, or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why. Which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! More to come, bookmark & come back! .. that dingo
Today's must-click special: Grin's BB5 Park: Day 39

"Is there somebody coming up behind me?"
Many are saying Drew did the right thing by using the veto, knowing full well Jase would then go up to sit on the nominee couch Thursday. Fair enough: Jase is not a popular hamster these days - inside or outside the house - but that isn't the point. Sure, Drew ensured that his girlfriend will stick around for another week, and probably guaranteed himself another few weeks in the house as well, but at what cost?
This is the kid who agonized who to nominate as HOH, then took all kinds of flak for his decision.. and suffered to the point of breakdown tears as a result. Which CBS aired gleefully several times. Great: that's what we tune in to see! But there's another side of these hamsters, and that's the inside. Each of them has to live with whatever actions and decisions they make - dumb or brilliant, right or wrong.
Drew was the one hamster who seemed to have some ethics and a conscience (or "conscious" as he calls it.) He's the one who reads his Bible every night, and he's also the one with a fraternity background, so he knows the meaning of loyalty - probably more than most. Loyalty to da brothas. Well, so much for that idea huh?
Right or wrong, richer or poorer, Drew made a decision today that he can rationalize a million ways.. but at the end of the day, he let down his Original Alliance. He let down his brothers. Sure, it's just a reality tv show - but the Horseman changing midstream that way doesn't say much for his future career as an attorney, either. Ah well, he has to cover his own ass.. and he has to live with himself.
But hey, at least now we know for a fact the kid's got balls: Diane keeps them blue, and that's probably the real reason our golden boy did her bidding. (Funny isn't it? Jase is called pussy-whipped by all and it's a Bad Thing cuz it's the dreaded Holly.. but when it's cutesy couple Drew & Diane, it's all good.. go figure.)
Ok, enough soapbox.. on with the fun!
Everyone's getting in on it.. hey.. didn't Jase invent this game too?
What are they going to do for fun without him.. turn on each other?
Outside, Marv & Jase squicked about "that old lady with the sex advice show"
and Nik and Karen talked about something..
Later Marvin admits to getting homesick, Jase goes cocoon, and
Ad/Nat says "Don't you hate it when you sit down and your belly does this?"
Then it's time for a party! Everyone gets ready.. Nik in her own special way
Dahlinks, yoo look mah-velous!
What can I say? The party was fabulous in every way
Ad/Nat tries to teach Diane some dance moves at the after-party
"It's just a game"
About this point in the season I have to remind myself that.
Sure, Jase is an eejit - arrogant and cocky, and overcompensating for insecurity the size of Montana. And it's easy to shoot him down for non-stop yap about his acting, but let's be fair: he's no Olivier, but he's got more (verifiable) credits under his belt than all the other reality "actors" combined. And he's added more fun and laughs to the house than anyone - isn't that why we watch?
