Day 8 - Thursday 6/25
We got feeds! almostIn a wonderful and benevolent move, The Powers That Be switched the feeds on about eight hours ahead of schedule and we once again had fishies swimming and music looping, as if they'd never left.. there was a superquick flash of the habitat at one point: nobody was seen but voices were heard (not clearly), and we found out the hammock is in place.. and then they gave us an actual leak that lasted 10 minutes or so - Flashback 6/25 4.33pm
We found out they'd had a Have-not comp, and that Jeff & Jackie were in, and that Jason was probably the second HOH, which was confirmed on the CBS show.. the hamsters are already grouping up and gossiping, and plotting and planning, and it's glorious.. the best part was they didn't know we were watching, so it was our first glimpse at their non-intro package, non-Diary, actual hamster selves
Then Julie showed up and sent in Liz, Jason, Vanessa, and John, Becky, Steve and they all did more champagne toasting and intro lying - Vanessa told them she's a DJ rather than a superstar poker player.. interestingly, there was no twin Julia in Liz's intro package including family farewells, which further clinches my hunch that they will be the switching twins.. that's right, Julie said she'd tell us tonight but now that reveal is delayed until next Thursday for some reason
The first twist delivery came from Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan, who sent in TAR blind date alumni Jeff Weldon and Jackie Ibarra for our total of 16 hamsters (plus or minus a twin).. Vanessa sat out this HOH comp, which was a laser-ish light, alien attack, pole hugging/climbing affair with green goo, loosely based on last night's movie theme.. it also made them creepily Quasimodo-like
Jason won that one and became HOH #2 along with James.. yes, we do have an overabundance of J names, it's like Hamster Duggars this year
Phil gave comp sitter-outers Da'Vonne and Vanessa a threat/promise about "with risk sometimes comes reward - another day" and that was pretty much that
NOW IS THE TIME TO GET YOUR FEEDS - they will kick on Thursday night 9pm Pacific/midnight Eastern and will be accessible via computer and mobile device browser at that same link, as well as via Roku (and Chromecast and Apple TV, if you know how to set those up - I do not).. feeds aren't in the CBS app yet, but might be coming.. no promo code is needed, and there is no season pass: All Access is $5.99 per month recurring billing, and includes archived air shows of BB and most CBS shows, as well as live CBS viewing in some regions.. After Dark also starts Thursday night (Friday morning) on Pop (formerly TVGN) in USA and Slice in Canada
We got feeds! for realThe feeds fired up right on time once again: we came in on them sitting around awkwardly waiting for us to join them - oops.. then they did the now-usual raucous whooping, hollering and welcoming, and a round-robin of shoutouts, and skit, and then it was time for them to scatter and for us to scramble to try to catch up on what they've been up to.. Austin and Jace sat down to talk and fill us in a bit, and we quickly established that Jace is more of a "let's put on a show for the feeds!" than pro wrestler Austin - go figure
James nominated Jackie & Steve, and Jason nominated Becky & John.. Becky & John won the BOB and their safety, and Jason was deposed as HOH.. Austin got safety from Vanessa, apparently her perk from sitting out the HOH comp (I don't know what happened there with Vanessa)
Veto hadn't been played yet but players were picked: John, Becky, Jason will play.. Jace will not, and he's already James' backdoor target, and there's a lot of backup for that plan.. Steve's also seen as sketchy by several of them - I don't know what that's about, but I don't like it
The first tears came early, from Vanessa - she had a few rounds of them, some with actual tears and most with a solidly stuffed nose and hyperventilated sobs.. she misses her girlfriend, she can't take the isolation, she can't stand the bullying, it's not worth the money, and etc etc etc.. many thought she was bluffing but I don't think tears at the table are a strategy at her level of poker, but who knows? We'll see if more develops from that.. she had a revolving group of sympathizers and supporters throughout
James selected Have-nots and/or they volunteered: Austin, Da'Vonne, Liz, Vanessa moved into the new Have-not room which is a dental office theme this time (what's the odds?).. the beds are dental chairs
The highlight of the night was when Becky launched into a story that blew Victoria's crow away: she was hit in the face by a train! She went into detail about the many serious injuries she sustained, fear of brain damage and the like, and she told it all with gusto and glee.. she also said she couldn't say where it happened as there was still some pending litigation.. we're used to trainwrecks on the feeds but #TrainwreckBecky brings it to a whole new level - Flashback 6/25 9.35pm
The other best news is that the ants are already in the habitat! Team Ants is stronger every year - all that tomato juice might have helped
Cries of "nail party! nail party!" made me cringe but they went ahead with it anyway - James and Clay seemed to be the most eager about it.. spats that we missed include Clay vs Da'Vonne, Austin vs Jeff, Steve vs Jason, and Jace vs Becky - those last two had a confrontation about whatever their issues were, which ended with a hug and a promise to "talk it over first" next time
Bottom line, there's an awful lot of them and most of them are already gaming their brains out.. it's a lot to catch up with on top of just figuring out who's who, voices and personalities and the rest of it.. but BB feeds are a marathon, not a sprint, and it will all become clear in time, more or less
