It's Diane's word from BB5 and it's a good one.. I'll be using it a lot as we go, along with other BB vocab like Cowboy's "nervousing"
Alison guesses the new restriction food that "will have them crying for PBJ" will be bugs, based on the bug room motif.. she says she saw bugs for sale "like funnelcakes" everywhere in Thailand when she was on "Amazing Race"
She gets called to diary soon after she shares this news, her electronic photo frame goes dark at the same time, and the rest of them take off
Hamster: She's gone! She's out of the game!
Hamster: That's weird - she gets called in right after she says the bug thing
Hamster: Maybe she figured out the bug thing so she gets immunity for 3 days
Hamster: She said she worked for CBS Productions in Africa before
Hamster: She's the mole!
dingo: Thailand, not Africa and CBS produces 'Amazing Race' - that's how easy & fast things can get twisted.. take note, Hamsterwatchers
Much of yesterday's news is just that.. BB2, BB5 and BB6 are still confirmed teams but there are a lot of secret hookups and secret hookup pretenses being revealed as well - it's a mess and I can't keep up with it all.. just ass-ume everyone is lying to everyone, it's easier
Will wakes up happy to a report from Boogie about his rounds - they all seem to be falling into his lap, as usual.. everyone's making rounds, pretending they aren't and herding in small groups in between.. James is as busy as any but pretends he isn't better than some
Boogie: What if you & me vote separately and cause a tie?
Boogie [watching spyscreen]: Hurry Will, we got Janelle outside for her 10 minutes a day
Will: I can't believe she played cutesy-pie with me
Boogie: Marcellas called you out about being a cult leader
Diane [to Nakomis]: Let's just split up everything that's together, including Boogie & Will
James: I'm a lethargic piece of shit today
Nakomis scopes out everybody's swing vote George.. together they wonder what's with knives on request - they know it's BB2 but say they don't know why and wonder if it's a twist.. same with George finding a piece of Jase's camouflage fabric in his bag
Nakomis: D needs to go and A needs to stay
George: I just feel like we're outnumered
Nakomis: If we can just keep things like they are right now, we have the numbers
George: One thing James told me that kinda scared me, he said if anybody does that back door to him, he would throw them off the balcony.. I didn't like that
Nakomis: Ignore him.. he does it for attention.. he tries to get under your skin - that's his strategy
Nakomis: Don't give Danielle any definite answers
He already told Danielle she's got his vote
Sharp knives have been locked up since BB2 Justin was thrown out for teasing a drunken Krista with erotic knifeplay, saying 'Would you be upset if I killed you?'
Alison & Erika hammock, talk about their BB4 mess and come to a truce, kinda - watch the video.. Erika asks why Alison thinks she's in with the BB6 crowd and Alison says "things I read on the internet".. Ali asks for Erika's vote.. Erika deflects but later says she'll try to get somebody else to switch
Erika: For now we can stay enemies
Alison: Okay, but after you get me the vote?
Alison: I told myself I wasn't gonna play like that this year, but we could totally work this angle
Erika: I'll work on George
Erika's been active on James' site and her site is affiliated with his, and Erika may have been at some chats the other BB6-ers did at Fishbowl (which her ex BB1 Josh co-owned)
Will's selling shirts with the sayings he keeps wearing - the ones BB didn't confiscate anyway - check them out in today's linkage.. today's says "Julie's favorite"
He springs another psychological trick as Erika & Kaysar chat, joking that the show will proclaim them the BB7 showmance with shots of them together in the hammock, in the hot tub, in the shower.. naturally Howie makes contributions.. Dani pays a tentative visit to Janelle in HOH - they don't seem to have anything going
Kaysar [to Erika]: Tell her [Alison] 'if you want to stay you'll have to swing George'
Danielle [to Janelle]: I don't want to butt in, but I'm just so bored.. this house is so big.. I just want some new conversation
Erika & Marcellas have an undercover chat - Erika's especially undercover - they seem to be working together.. Jase comes in and they shut up, so he doesn't seem to be in on this one
Erika: This goes no further with this room.. do you want to break up the six?
Marcellas: We break up the six, but we make sure that Janelle stays
Erika: Isn't she gonna be pissed that we changed our minds? You gotta talk to her today
Marcellas: I'll just tell her that I can't keep Danielle in here
Marcellas: Danielle has James.. that's how you fuck up the four: say you're going after James, trying to weaken James & Danielle.. Danielle is too strong with both him and George
Okay, I underestimated Marcellas.. this explains why he keeps trashing Erika as 'Amber alert' to everyone (diversion), but I still don't think he should be counting on finals as much as he is
Boogie makes a deal offer to Erika in the pantry - they don't seem to be working together.. Marcellas, Janelle & Jase chat and joke around in HOH but later Marcellas tells Janelle about the switch to vote out Danielle.. Janelle's not pleased and Marcellas dances around who he's talked to, what they said, and how desperately he wants to be rid of Danielle
George discovers Alison's picture returned (she did too) and he goes around poking them all, making the screens ripple.. Alison & Nakomis work out in the gym - Alison works harder and longer.. somebody's always cooking or eating, the kitchen's in constant use
Sexual harassment shower
Will takes a shower with running commentary and Howie & Boogie as his audience.. it's funny stuff and reminds us of the fun shower & bathtub scenes that came before
Nakomis is showering too
Will takes the opportunity to chip away at Howie a little bit more, and to work up the friction between Howie & Nakomis a little bit more (and therefore within and between their respective teams).. it's all friendly and indirect, and funny, but it does its job well too
Watch the video - Howie goes uncharacteristically quiet again.. that's highly unusual for Howie in a situation like this - Will's getting to him but he doesn't even realize it
Will: They kinda could call this show 'Sexual Harassment' cuz that's what you do Howie
Nakomis: That's Howie's MO
Will: Howie sexually harasses them so much that they quit
Shower video 2 is just for fun: Will wonders which cameras are on the internet, and says he wouldn't mind being nekkid in there but doesn't want it to end up on Youtube..
Back to the kitchen, where Will talks about the notorious chat he did during campaign week (the one where he called Kaysar a gay vampire and Janelle a 50 cent whore, and was eventually kicked out of) and how difficult it was to keep up with the questions.. Janelle talks about the impromptu chat she did and says she had fun
Will also talks about the email Q&A he did.. he says it's the only honest interview any of them did, and because he talked about the rest of the group of 20 in it, he asked that it not be posted til they were in sequester (which it wasn't).. watch the video.. then they all start a hide 'n seek game involving furniture hopping but it goes to flames.. apparently Big Brother makes them stop
Will's interview wasn't totally honest: he claims it was friends doing the chat but he's talked about doing it himself quite a few times now
They sit around the living room talking movie trivia, Celeb Who Am I, books, past seasons, hamster gossip and hamster scandals - the BB2 knife incident comes up for the second time today.. they drop so many names and BB insider stuff that we have flames for much of it, but it's a pretty dull party anyway
They get a rare midnight booze delivery - they don't get a lot but they're glad to get it.. Janelle & Nakomis go out to smoke but they chat mostly about their seasons and the comps they did.. no game or alliance chat
Will starts telling stories then says he has a scary one, a true one, if they want to hear it.. he says it might take five minutes to tell but it might take two hours so they all migrate to the balcony to be more comfortable.. he reminds them it might take two hours and they realize they forgot to pack, so they head back down for popcorn, snacks & drinks, then settle around him like kindergartners at story time
It only takes about ten minutes to tell, and the end of it went to flames for us
They talk about ouija boards and tarot cards.. Jase provides questions for a short seance - they watch to see if the necklace twists or sways.. "Are there twins in this house? Are there 17 people in this house?"
The party breaks up like parties do and most scamper off to their beds.. there's always a few who stick around til the bitter end
Diane goes for another snack and waves at us.. Nakomis does too, then tells sleeping Alison that she's naming this camera Potato Chip.. Howie flosses and Will discusses the bathroom decor & season theme.. I think they vote tomorrow
Will: They buy a couple rubber ducks and it's good versus evil? I don't get it.. what's this wall about, haystacks?
It was good to see Diane & Nakomis wave to us, but it looked a bit forced & unnatural for each of them.. as if Diary told them to start doing it
