Countdown to meltdown
This is a victim of the spiderweb they watched being spun last night: let's name it Drew.
The nightly shenanigans between Diane's needy insecurity and Drew's selfish libido are taking their toll: Diane is questioning his like/love for her and carrying it over into the game - compromising her strong position - and leaving Drew on his own - not his best spot to shine.
Diane tells the remains of "Pussy Power" her version of what
Drew thinks, feels, and fears within the game
Diane: Drew does not trust Natalie
Karen: I don't ever remember talking (badly) about Drew with anyone
Diane: They call themselves the Horsemen
Nik: And we call ourselves Friends
Ad/Nat, Will, and Karen go tanning - Karen in her own special way
Diane crawls in with Marv as he's napping to talk game - later she told Drew that
Marvin approached her! - then she cocoons, leaving Drew on his own
Drew does a poor imitation of mirror-face..
..he seems to like what he sees though
Will watches Drew shave and they discuss chest hair (shaving vs. Nair)
and Nik assesses the safety of the chicken
Afterward Drew asks Will, his Bible, and finally Cowboy what to think
Cowboy: It's true.. they're coming after both of us cuz we were in that group
Diane (walking by on her way to the Diary Room): Ok, let the anger roll
Drew: She's making me crazy
Cowboy: Yea, she can be a bitch sometimes
Drew: Yea, she can
Cowboy: If I win HOH and put her up, are you gonna be saving her? She isn't gonna look out for you - she's gonna look out for HER! She wants me out, and if she gets me out, she's gonna control you even more
Drew: If it comes down to it, I'll get her out.. She's got the power of a freaking bear, man.. she doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut. I think she's stupid!
Cowboy: I'm keeping my mouth shut on that
Diane comes over and says the guys behind the wall push them off
Cozying up with that evil, horrible, harassing Marvin (whom she hates, remember?)
Explaining to Natalie that she's "psycho" and apologizing & seeking guidance..
Looking uncomfortable next to Drew in the kitchen, and then, out of the blue, telling Nat to go out to Drew and ask him if she's a good kisser (she explains they had a kissing discussion the other night - yes, that night - textbook passive-aggressive behavior with her own aggressive-passive spin)
Later she seeks advice for the lovelorn from Nik.. Karen & Will join in and all agree she should remember this isn't the real world - "very few reality relationships have worked out" - Diane doesn't seem to like that, and states if this were the real world she could just "run away and never see him again".. but she does seem to like being the center of attention: whenever the subject strays to twins or game she brings it back to her
A network television first
It's probably safe to say that male pubic hair removal hasn't been covered on network tv before, but it was tonight - in depth - first from Will and then Diane (which provided confirmation that her hand has indeed travelled to Drew's nether regions - take that, doubters!) Actually the whole HJ concept is pretty much unchartered territory for network tv, and surprising in the conservative wake of Nipplegate.
It's also surprising that these events revolve around good boy Drew, and that his genitals are so often the topic of conversation both inside and outside the habitat. Everyone knows that he shaves down there, that he's uncut, and "I do so have balls!" remains the catch-phrase of the BB5 season. All this from the guy who gets squirrely if he thinks his nieces know he's got a "bedmate".. go figure.
He's probably taken on more than he can handle with Diane. Whenever he's around (or Marvin, who she claims to despise but it's obvious she's intrigued by him - scared shitless but intrigued) Diane talks the big talk about her sexual escapades, all her boyfriends past, and all the guys who want her. Then she turns around and puts herself down, transparently fishing for compliments and reassurance. It's very rare that anything comes out of her mouth that isn't about her - but around these guys, it nearly always has a tone that claims I AM SEXUAL! (Odd, considering this is the girl who's never had an orgasm..)
Diane's a mess, and Drew's a naive, horny kid drawn to her good looks and sexy style. Her "episodes" leave him confused and reeling, and she resents him for that. Given a little emotional maturity in both of them, they might have a chance - but even at their most intimate, they resemble South Park 4th graders Stan & Wendy more than an adult couple forming a relationship. They're doomed - and we get to watch it play out :)
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
