It also isn't necessarily about who will win, who should win, who's cute or who's horrid. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why, who's fun and who's dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

'Switzerland', 'The Psychologist' and 'Dairy Queen' refer to Diary Room; 'Vacation' refers to pre-show hotel sequester

Jerry is being called 'The Colonel'

The winner will once again receive $500k, and second place gets $50k. The weekly stipend for the others remains $750, including sequester weeks.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 mics this season

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman


AMERICA'S PLAYER

Task 1: Who should Dan get nominated? Jessie/successful

Task 2: Who should Dan hug for 10 seconds? Jessie/successful

Task 3: Who should Dan vote to evict? Jessie/successful

Dan gets $20k if successful and not discovered. The previously-announced 4th task evaporated. Apparently all the 'Dan is America's Player' suspicions will not invalidate him.. 'plant' didn't, anyway.

>> past   >> present   >> future   >> all

>> Jerry is Head of Household - Keesha & Renny are nominated - Memphis Bob used veto <<

>> Latest Twitters should show here - if not, see them here
    Wind-down is official


    Memphis Bob used the veto on Dan per plan and Jerry put up Renny, his only replacement option

    I'm guessing both Dan and Memphis Bob are counting their money already, even as they compared notes about potential jury votes.. they also went through the usual script of whining for another luxury comp, and talking like they have an automatic pass to go on "Survivor" and/or "Amazing Race".. both sounded pleased that they pulled off a fast one against all three of their fellow hamsters

    Renny seems to be taking her nom well, at least for now.. I'm pretty sure she'll go out with class on Thursday, but I'm half expecting (and hoping) that she'll give us some confrontations and fireworks before then.. Keesha's biggest problem has shifted from needing touch-up supplies for her roots to running out of makeup

    BBQ Smackdown - Prelude: The introduction


    Perhaps all is not lost with this season: they got a special delivery today.. all five greeted the metal monster's triumphant return to the arena, although none of them recognized it from its previous stellar career.. that ignorance may prove to be costly for them: it looks especially hungry, having been kept in storage for so much extra time

    Memphis Bob seemed the most eager to jump in to the ring, greeting the grill with excitement and making plans to barbecue many foods that were newly delivered with it.. Keesha stood back, respectfully.. Dan made a game of it, doing a quick & playful burger-flip pantomine.. Renny recognized its superiority, calling out "It's a good one, it's a KitchenAid!".. Jerry took a peek then started shouting about having missed the 4th of July and Labor Day

    Grilling ensued without incident, but it usually does on the first outing.. Memphis Bob cooked up enough food for a full habitat: he seemed to know what he was doing and he even scraped off the grill afterwards, like they do.. the metal monster was probably just letting him get comfortable and think he's safe

    Dan planted his USA flag in a chair, after letting its edge lightly brush the ground a couple times while seeking a spot that would hold it up - oops

    Insect torture and Q-tips


    It's also the time of the season when they become fascinated with the backyard spider: it happens like clockwork

    Dan & Memphis Bob were mesmerized by it and its web, and ran around trying to catch bugs to throw into the web, with Jerry cheering them on.. they were successful a couple times, and when the spider swooped down to spin up its/their catch, they thought it was the best thing since winning a car and/or $20k

    Meanwhile, Renny & Keesha found the 9pm wine delivery (one beer apiece had come earlier for dinner), and they hid it
           

    They all laid around awhile in the living room together, talking about how bored (boring) they are.. they laid out the cards to play Concentration - the cards are so big, they had to walk around the table to play.. they're also missing three cards from the deck now, already

    They served up Dan's football cake with Q-tip candles, and all sang to him for Showtime.. feedsters had just a very brief fishies interlude for that, so I guess the regular crew is back on duty in there - whew

    Some screencaps of the day are in the forum thanks to ABT and piperyoung

    Daily ratings - The champ returns special edition


    Ratings are based on entertainment value


    Naturally I'll overlook the fact that some of them are now saying 'DR' - that's fed to them - or that Renny was tipped off that a lockdown and something edible coming, since they took mercy on me after yesterday's BBQ Fantasy Smackdown and gave in to provide them and us with the real thing, even at this late date. I know, I know: I'm the last person The Powers That Be want to oblige but hey, let me dream. In reality, they probably just rolled in the grill so they wouldn't all starve to death after Renny leaves.


    Won: $20k (presumably)
    Everyone in there is on his case about never washing his shorts, and it's time non-feedsters and casual Hamsterwatchers know the score. He claims that his daily swim 'sterilizes' the shorts he wear every single day, and he refuses to wash them. I'm not sure he does much laundry at all which is also odd, since he only has three or four shirts. He doesn't think this is an issue and apparently he doesn't stop to wonder if maybe his co-hamsters are dropping these hints due to stinkage. His inability to go to bed without attempting to scare two or three people is getting tiresome. We found out today that he cuts his corn off the cob due to front teeth caps.




    Won: $4k
    HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
    His obnoxiousness continues unchecked, such as running through his roomies and proclaiming who he thinks each of their fans are, and then stating that he has 'all generations'. He finally found out that he doesn't get to compete in the next HOH comp, and then proceeded to shout (loudly) random statements for no real reason. I don't think these things were related, but you never know with Jerry. He talks like he's an expert griller (like he's an expert everything) and I was surprised he didn't jump in to coach & correct Memphis Bob's technique tonight, but that may yet come. If/when it does, it'll likely cause an explosion and hit the BBQ Smackdown scoreboard.




    NOMINATED
    She continues to lie to Renny about how much she knows and knew, and I don't understand why: it doesn't serve her in any way, but it could be harming her good standing with Renny. It's eerily similar to the way BB5 Nakomis betrayed her best friend & mentor Karen to send her packing, also in 5th place. (For that matter, Nakomis's famous meltdown came along a few days later, and she'd been even more of an even-keeler than Keesha til then). Keesha's fears over running out of makeup any minute are becoming almost comical, and I wonder if she's connected that to the many times she laid on layers of it at 11pm for something to do. Either way, she could do without the cheek stripes so it's not such a bad thing. Up for hiding the wine with Renny.




    Won: Classic Camaro
    Ups for diving in with no fear when the grill arrived and for entering the arena with the appropriate respect - well, I'm sure he's unaware of the grill's illustrious past history, but he probably would have done the courageous griller routine even if he did. He barbecued up an array of meats, burgers and corn - enough for 12 or more - and much of it went into the fridge afterwards. Those leftovers will probably end up in the garbage as ant food, since Memphis Bob will probably want to grill again, and Jerry seems to want a shot too. He's said Diary keeps asking & teasing him about having purple sheets, so apparently they're at a loss as to how to fit him into the air show.




    NOMINATED
    She keeps making subtle digs at Keesha about betrayal and about their friendship, but like BB5 Karen (see Keesha), they're probably too subtle to score a direct hit. In fact, Renny's game is a lot like Karen's in that she's all about planting subtle seeds, knowing enough about what makes each of them tick to know which seeds to plant where, and cooking. She's likely going to go out the same way too, kept in the dark by her mentee, and in the same place position. Renny's been suspicious of Memphis Bob for weeks and rarely spoke to him until recently. I'm not sure, but I suspect she just drew a blank with him and didn't know how to proceed with him.. that happens sometimes to otherwise highly intuitive people, and it may have been her BB10 undoing. Ups for hiding the wine, and for being Renny. Best wishes to her family, and here's hoping they didn't suffer much damage from Gustav.




       
    He arrived as the innocent Preacher's Son but soon proved that false, as he & April shattered the record for hamster sex that included doggie-style, spanks and visuals. Nearly all of it was on the feeds, and the word spread even beyond the BB world. He was usually pleasant enough but had a temper tantrum ranking up there with the champ hissy-fitters. Like many others, he learned to swim at summer camp.




       
    Almost brilliant but poor judgment kept her glued to devalued teamies and she let paranoia take over her game. She was almost good watching but poor people skills, repetitive & constant whispers, and annoying babytalk didn't help - Holly Poodle skits & medical help excepted. She's the third member of the elite Red Catsuit Club and her leaked Diary showed how much flirting really goes on in there.




       
    Won: Designer clothes, $5k
    We've had sex on the feeds before, but we never actually saw it until she came along. She one-upped often but to her credit, she impressively won the first endurance. She had delusions about her importance in & out of the habitat, and her Barbie Battles with Keesha plus her other fights were something. But we knew from the start she wouldn't be invisible, thanks to her most unusual introduction to the others.




       
    Won: Hawaii trip, $1k
    She ran the tie-dye room with an iron fist but only for a short time: her minions had turned on her long before Jessie & Michelle painted a bull's eye on her for being their leader. She took a lot of flak for leaving her babies and for choosing Hawaii, and her financial sob stories didn't always add up. But she told some fun stories, rebelled against giving comp recaps to Diary, and added great fireworks to fights.




       
    The first to get an empty wheel before their time, his comic relief wore off fast and he brought nothing but a major mirror obsession and raging insecurity. But it's not all bad: he laid around in pink pillows and talked himself gone with rampaging harangues, and he'll carry the fact that he lost to a girl while wearing spandex, then lost to three girls plus Renny. Rehabs will profit from the Jessie Drinking Game.




       
    The third fan fave to walk the plank, she was a great sidekick to the fun guys but she didn't bring much after they left, including any real attempt to save herself. Like many who have gone before, she seems like she'd be a cool person in reality, but this isn't. Her angry hat and illegal tribute bandana aside, she did a great Julie puppet and manscaping. Bikini fans will miss her, as will the Behind Pillows alliance.




       
    They all liked him and his shenanigans, but his comp potential and desperate pledges of multi allegiance got him booted anyway, plus he was Brian's pal. He entertained them and us like few have before, with skits, dances, nekkid romps, Ambien-induced bedtime stories and general looniness. Too bad he went before he made it upstairs: he'd probably have revived Bath Buddies® and done it right.




       
    He made more of an impact than most who get voted out first and he had the potential to be a fan fave but he over-allied and betrayed too early and had a very negative edit to boot. He was smart, funny, and a good ringleader for the guys - time will tell if they can be as fun without him. Sock Puppet Theater on only the second night of feeds, under his direction, could be the highlight of the season.
