>> Alison & Danielle are nominated - Janelle won veto <<
Hurry up and wait
Nakomas is the early riser today - not counting Kaysar who went back to bed after 5.30 prayers - she putters around and settles down to sew some pants
She doesn't really need the camouflage
The rest of them show up gradually and chatter over their breakfasts.. Marcellas comes down complaining that people are trying to sleep! (he & Janelle were up latest).. James says we're abnormal if we're watching on the internet right now
They have a veto comp scheduled so primping starts early.. Howie & Will nudge their back & forth banter up a notch - Will seems irritated by Howie at times, amused at others.. Howie just keeps on being Howie
Howie: A little bit of Howie goes a long way
Alison was one of the first to bed and one of the last to rise.. she preps on her own in her own way, and we find out who brought a Bible this time.. huh?
She approaches Danielle to ask if they can work as a team in the comp.. Danielle says it depends on the setup - if the others come after the two of them as a group then yes, but if it's individual then she's got to play for herself.. meanwhile Howie entertains them with the story of how he lost his fingertips (as a kid making kid-bombs) - it's funny and he has them all in stitches
Janelle's called in to get her lines and we have Diary slippage.. it sounds like they draw names from a lotto-ball machine.. George & Kaysar draw a slot and will compete for veto with Jase, Janelle, Alison & Danielle.. pre-comp adrenalin turns into a mid-day body count as Big Brother makes them wait about four hours for the comp
Alison revives enough to do.. something.. for awhile
Upstairs Jase, Janelle & Marcellas discuss who to nominate if the veto's used.. Janelle & Marcellas say George because he'd save Danielle.. Marcellas adds that it'd guarantee screen time that he [George] wants.. they talk about their casts - there are pics of each season's in HOH - choice words come up for Eric & Maggie
Marcellas: Can you talk strategy with someone who'd wear a chicken suit? Producers are working out there right now thinking of a competition he can win
Marcellas is still bitter about his season and Danielle's role in it.. he mimics what he calls "crazy eye" and describes his double-take when unglamorous Maggie came in last for pre-BB6 interviews, after the pretty girls
Downstairs chatter revs up again as they wait.. Kaysar asks Will about botox.. Will illustrates how it works with Howie's forehead furrows and crow's feet, and says he could make him look five years younger.. the image-conscious crowd suddenly goes quiet and listens intently to the info
Kaysar: But then you can't make expressions
Will: I used a lot of botox recently but the truth is, how much expression do you need?
Will: You are the Brad Pitt of Muslims
Will: Bunky's mean, he's mean-spirited.. you should see the emails he sent me
Erika: I finally found something that James isn't good at - pool
Diane: Pool and socializing
An elderly intruder?
Oops, it's just Boogie
Veto comp was dumpster diving, in chum.. Janelle won by a wide margin.. sounds like there was also a wheel that they spun with their names or items, maybe something like Stern's Wheel of Fish.. the players try to wash off the stench.. while waiting to use Janelle's shower, Danielle seems like she wants to snoop around but doesn't
Will visits upstairs and spars gametalk with Howie a bit - seems like he's warming up to him more as he gets used to him.. they trade guesses of who's in with who, and Janelle tells Jase that James is with them when Will steps out - see the video.. afterward Will returns, Kaysar joins them and they start goofing around
Will: I love Nikes. they gave me stuff for the show
Will looks over their BB6 pic and suddenly it's a good time
Will [about Cowboy]: His teeth are having an argument with each other
Will [about Maggie]: She looks like a beast
Kaysar: So Howie, you're 35.. and how old are you?
Kaysar: How old are you?
Howie: How old are you?
Kaysar: 25.. just trying to figure out when you're - when all these things..
Howie: It's just like the Jedi Council - you got guys who are 842, you got guys 310, you got guys 98, you got guys 50, 25.. in a way we're all together, we're all for one.. 1-2-3.. final four?
We have our first quitter
It's pretty early for this but Alison claims she wants to go hoooooome already.. hmm, that could be arranged, and probably is being arranged
She hit her head in the chum bucket and has a headache and everybody seems to be against her already.. she hates Janelle and the advantages she has being with BB6 group, winning HOH and now veto.. she confides all this to Danielle, who's kinda supportive.. Janelle hurt her leg in the comp too, but it's easier to take the pain when you win
Bottom line is there are too many missed convos and too much lying to even try to keep up with "real" alliances, not to mention pre-house arrangements we'll never know about, so I'm not going to try to keep up with the details at this point
The big picture is simple: everyone is on everyone's team, or no one's, depending who's asking.. the James Gang is whoever he's talking to at the moment (tho I still think he's playing silent partners with Erika).. Will & Howie each claim to be solo but we know neither is - they're also the only ones who joke about being on anyone & everyone's team
It's like trying to figure out last year's pairs before anything was proven, but it's multiplied and it's all going to shift from week to week anyway.. so it's back to the fun stuff where we belong, and so do they, with some random pics & snippets for the rest of the day
The BB minions aren't quite broken in yet: it takes them about 10 minutes to tell George to center his microphone.. Howie aims some of his sexchat at Erika & Diane who complain on cue, then Erika reacts further by deciding to umm.. stretch.. Will tries to fly away
Will [telling about the voicemail he got from BB2 Justin about getting kicked out for the knife incident]: Bro, bro, there's 55 media trucks on my lawn.. my mom's freaking out!
Howie [on the competition]: This ain't no nerd herd
Marcellas [about hosting Housecalls]: I think my last season was my last season
Boogie [on Kaysar & James]: I'd like to send them both back to America, since you like them so much
Howie [when Will lays down in the lawn after the direct sunlight is gone]: Tell him to lay out in the sun earlier in the day.. meteorology me, doctoral stuff you
Alison's feeling better and starts her rounds with Diane, who starts hers at the same time.. when Marcellas comes in Diane says they're studying Ali's Bible and asks him if creationists believe in dinosaurs? Marcellas says he thinks so, but they think of dinosaurs as kind of a test project
Diane's rounds take her to the hammock and Boogie, next but they wander off onto a lot of who they dislike tangents.. Will is definitely warming up to Howie as they interrupt with a brief wrestle
Boogie [on Will's girlfiend Erin Brodie, 'For Love or Money' $2 million winner]: She'd never compromise her morals for a million bucks.. oh wait, she already has.. twice
Will: I don't mess around
Will: She'd do well on this show.. other than the whole dig thru the garbage/ride an asteroid thing
Diane [about Janelle]: Don't you go getting any crushes
Jase: No way
Diane: She's a hot piece of ass.. even I have a crush on her
Diane: James will vote for whoever he feels will keep him in the game
Alison: So there are like four I gotta work on - Will, Boogie, George and James
Diane [about - I don't know?]: At least she got laid before she came in here.. check out the rug burn on her back
Janelle & Nakomis compare notes over chess again..
Later Janelle & Kaysar pretend to play chess while comparing notes while the others eat together.. but it's all too overwhelming for them too
Thanks to all the new Hamsterwatch Youtubers.. I know videos are starting off slow but more will be coming along as we go
