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
9/18/04 - Day 79 >> to the future >> dwell in the past >> latest
A jury of their peers
We figured it'd be dullsville in there with the talking Cowboy and his sidekick Prettyboy, and it was for most of the day
Things livened up though, when the fishies delivered to us a double explosion of testosterone-fueled anger.. Drew & Cowboy's cameraderie of just 24 hours ago ("we're here together - horsemen to the end!") turned to resentment at being in the position they'd already put all of their accusers into, and finding out that their illusion of appearing innocent all this time was just that: illusion
There was also a highly competitive tone between them, even as they railed on their accusers, each of them blatantly pissed off at the statements or innuendos apparently made that (individually) they did not deserve first place.. again, a complete turnaround from last night.. and again, both of them too dense to recognize it
Mostly it was a lot of hot air, frustration release, and the same pity party we've seen for most nominations.. these guys had put down the ones who acted exactly like this.. and there were a lot of transparent justifications for guilty consciences: many of the things they were irate about being accused of are true
The actual Q&A will be highly and subjectively edited for Tuesday's finale of course, so we can only guess from the boys' hostile reactions and flimsy justifications at how it really played out.. the only thing we learned for sure was that the jury won't reward Cowboy cuz he's too poor, and they won't reward Drew cuz he's too rich.. go figure
Prior to all that, it's this bad: the high points of the day are Drew's failed audition as nachos commercial spokesman, and Big Brother screwing up (or screwing with them) by calling every past & present hamster's name to "Please go the diary room".. of course our two deluded goody-horse-shoes answer the summons right away
Drew (monotone): It's like the easiest, most awesome tasting snack
Shared activities move here & there, with predictions of what's to come, and then it's another prep 'n primp, this time with a twist! Drew rehearses his speech to the jury, as if he's said it 1,000 times, and he presents himself to perfection
Drew: If anything, it'll be Diane having some words with me
Cowboy: Same with me and Nakomis
Drew: Yea but she's had some time to think
Cowboy: Diane doesn't need time to think before she says something
Drew (on fashion): Whatever makes you feel good.. makes your personality shine
Drew (rehearsing): You can't judge the nominees by financial backgrounds.. pick a nominee by how they played the game.. I'd like to stress to the jury how I played the game.. I hope you guys respect it.. I tried to keep my word throughout the game.. unfortunately yesterday I had to break a promise to one person.. for me it's evident I was HOH week 3 (etc, he numbers the weeks).. I didn't ride anybody's coat-tails to the final two.. with that, I hope you respect me.. I tried to keep my word.. I was only on the block once but that's not my fault - you guys could have put me up anytime.. just once and I took it like a man.. I made myself get in the final two because of winning HOH the last two times
Sorry, but it's another text-heavy episode, kids.. Marvin is the HamsterWatch star of the day yet again, even when he isn't there, for being the one to rattle both their cages the most - probably without even trying.. As always, just the snippets I caught and found interesting and/or amusing.. check your favorite full-service update site for the rest:
(Cowboy says something about someone talking about 'going up against the horsemen')
Drew: 'Aww, you tore her heart out and I'll be there to see you'.. give me a break, man! Trying to make me look bad, trying to make me look like a piece of dirt
Drew: I bet you anything that Marvin's all up on her now
Cowboy: I've got 2 black nieces!
(Cowboy asks Drew his reasoning on how he arrived at how the jury votes will go.. Drew begins with 'Diane told me..'
(they go through the jurors - each of them hopes they get 'at least one')
Cowboy: Marvin and Diane grilled my ass
Drew: Me too!
Cowboy: If that's how they're doing it, fine, that's fine.. but couldn't there have been a different way how to word that maybe?
Drew: Are we still on Big Brother? Do they see our reactions to all that now??
Cowboy: They do not see our personal conversations, and this is a personal conversation.. a big conversation
Drew (about his farewell to Diane): What do they expect, 'I love you? I'll eat puke for you??'
Drew: They know who we are, most of that was probably for tv dramatic purposes.. they know who we are
Cowboy: And I hope Nakomis understands why I did what I had to do! I wish I'd voted Diane out to be honest with you
Cowboy: You wouldn't have expected that, you woulda been mad at me
Drew: I'd respect any decision you made.. I woulda been rubbed the wrong way, I admit that
Cowboy: You use women.. and I'm a racist!
(they go through Drew's final HOH basket - it's lots of candy and snack foods.. but there's a theme)
Drew: Funny funny, Big brother.. everything's peanut butter and jelly
(Drew says they don't know what happened with Diane 'after she shut that door')
Drew: Right after Young & Restless Marvin came up to me, he said 'Dude don't tie yourself down to her.. do your thing with Diane but keep it loose for when you're out.. girls are gonna be coming at you, a young white (he said that) kid on tv..' THEN he comes and says that to me tonight!!
Cowboy: They are taking power into their own hands!
Drew: They are.. this is like being on the block! Um it's worse than that
(Drew talks about how Diane kissed Scott & Marvin again)
Cowboy: Oh by the way, Diane asked me about that kiss
Drew: And you saw the kiss!! Screw this, I don't care.. she is so FULLA SHIT!! She's kissing every person who's HOH whenever they're HOH!! She's a SLUT!!
Cowboy: Marvin did every girl in this house!
Drew: Marvin was like a Houdini, he escaped every time he was on the block.. and that's why I got rid of him
Cowboy: Karen asked Nakomis's question for her!
Drew: I know, I can't believe that!!
Drew: Tonight we saw people's true colors
Cowboy: You scored brownie points with Lori.. today when you said she was beautiful
Cowboy: Don't say anything about this, I'm surprised CBS hasn't.. but I was the school mascot
Drew: Really? Dude, that's awesome.. I think of you as the Big Brother mascot
Cowboy: I was Willie the Wildcat
Drew: My mom was a cheerleader.. I think.. it was either my mom told me this or my girlfriend in high school.. she loved basketball games more than football games cuz.. etc
Cowboy: I didn't get to play football my senior year cuz my ex-wife wouldn't let me play
Drew: People can say whatever they want about me, but I know who I am.. you know who you are
Cowboy: Who cares what seven people think about me??
(Drew says he got his college degree 'from a pretty reputable school in Ohio'..)
Cowboy: My bank account before I came in here was negative
Drew: I don't want to get discriminated against just cuz of the family I was born into
Cowboy: I'm gonna get a little bit closer to you
Cowboy: So I can reach the nachos
Drew: I never ever EVER said trailer trash! I think he was just promoting himself to get her
Cowboy: He can have her
Drew: Uh huh
Drew: Producers, I hope you see the true people that everyone in this house now is, and that you portray us as we really are
Cowboy: I know what we are, two nice guys in the final two and getting lied at by everyone on the jury
Drew: They were assaulting us for our personality and saying everything we did was wrong
Cowboy: I won 2 food competitions, a veto.. America Choice, but that's different..
(free of kissing duties, Drew can now wear his retainer to bed again)
Drew: The one person who should have stayed one more week..
Cowboy: Who was he up with again?
Drew: Marvin.. he had plenty of time to think out the things he said tonight, and he still said what he did
Cowboy: Now I have to sit down with my nephews and let him know why a black man said that to me
Drew: The only times I talked bad about Diane was when she was a BITCH!
Drew: Ok.. the only time I talked bad about her was when I found out she kissed Marvin..
Cowboy: Uh huh
Drew: Ok and the only time I talked bad about her was with Adria
Cowboy: I feel like Natalie & Adria are good Christian women and they love their husbands.. I mean they love them for the hair on their chest and their big strong arms.. (they, or one of them - not sure) said they'd love their husband more than their kids.. do you believe that? I think the kids go first
Drew: I dunno, I think the husband and wife should come first, they're the unit
Cowboy: I'm gonna believe that Chasen's fed before April is
Drew: I voted out 4 people
Cowboy: I voted out 3
Cowboy: I'm gonna ask Marvin if he wants his Bible back
Drew: That'd be funny
I know I still you owe some parts from a few days gone by..
I will get to them - thanks for not making a big deal about it :)
Thanks for visiting!
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
