A whole lot of nothing (Sunday)
Marcellas looks how I feel
If I weren't somewhat committed to seeing this thing through, I'd have bailed by now.. this is one boring group of pompous, self-important eejits - the word "entertainment" does not apply
Due to their lack of activity and my lack of interest, it's another doubled-up lite episode
Will amuses himself a bit better than most but stops short before putting his best idea in action: throwing the two inside and two outside urns into the pool to play Treasure Hunt.. meanwhile Boogie sprays his hair while swimming, and Jase does something..
Janelle & Will have a friendly if tentative chat, where she asks if he really does want to leave early.. he says if he isn't evicted in three weeks "hell will be unleashed in this house" - watch the video - then he says "Let's do it, let's backdoor someone this week" and she responds "Okay, who?"
For some reason (paranoia?) James joins the common folk downstairs for afternoon body count.. Howie comes through pestering & mooning, and they shoo him out - watch the video.. James heads back up later and stays planted with his guacamole thing and revolving door
You can tell how much each visitor impresses, scares or bores James by his demeanor with them.. this is one of Erika's many visits - she shows up at every meeting, usually uninvited - but she's on her own this time.. take-out dinner #2 arrives and they pounce
It's Italian this time.. most of them complain later that it was lousy, but they dive in with gusto at the time and can't get enough.. except George, of course
In another amazing coincidence of timing (or not), just about the time the air show winds up across the country, they're all playing the game again and it's meeting season in the HOH again
George is up first.. James manages to compliment & insult him simultaneously - watch the videos: part 1 - part 2
Next it's a grand audience with Willboogie.. Kaysar's there too but you'd never know it.. James suggests Jase to take George's place, and Willboogie argue for Marcellas - watch the videos: part 1 - part 2 - part 3
Flames and WAY TOO LOUD music cut off Will talking about putting pressure on the producers.. I didn't record the rest though it went on & on & on
Meanwhile Jase & Marcellas get in each other's faces downstairs over what one or the other said in Diary, or something.. it ends as soon as it starts and they go to their respective corners.. later Diane chats with Jase a bit - watch the video
Pretty soon everyone but Willboogie, Jase & George are in HOH, all talking about who to put up.. either James has no autonomy as HOH at all, or he's working hard to present that illusion.. of his own team, three want to put up Jase and he's not one of them - he even starts arguing why Marcellas is a good choice
In short, most of them just keep talking and talking but not saying much other than what a great cast they are and how we all must be riveted to our screens (zzzz)
Even if someone wanted to listen to them all pontificate all the time, it's pretty much impossible since the feeds cut to flames and WAY TOO LOUD music every few minutes because these nimrods keep singing, talking about their diaries, talking about people or things they're not supposed to, and bashing the producers.. Big Brother has absolutely no control over them so they run wild knowing that they can
Why they don't start fining them for this crap is beyond me
Against all odds, or not (Saturday)
George won the veto
Almost everybody saw that one coming.. except the people in the house
Along with the veto necklace he's got no hair, blue limbs, is on slop diet for the duration, and he can't play veto next week
As I understand it, the veto comp was a double-dog-dare kinda thing: Willboogie bailed instead of eating one bowl of slop.. Jase bailed rather than shave his head.. James bailed rather than give up the opportunity to play veto next week.. George beat out Kaysar for the tiebreaker by saying he'd eat slop for 60 days.. along the way some of them dove into a blueberry bath and some clothes were burned
Jase commisserates with George about their blue, and tells him he was everyone's target.. George asks what most fans have been asking - watch the video.. Kaysar starts getting used to his new look and Marcellas assists
George: I don't understand.. why would they keep the doctor?
Around the compound it's the usual body count, with a lot of "how did that happen?" thrown in this time.. Janelle makes up some more of her world famous apple crisp
Upstairs it's a very long and very tiresome meeting as the BB6ers discuss what to do (again).. James says he has to put up Boogie since he promised everyone else he wouldn't.. Howie & especially Janelle say they should get rid of Jase now while they can - watch the video.. Kaysar doesn't say much.. James complains (a lot) about how the comp wasn't fair - it goes on for hours
James: I told [Jase] I wouldn't backdoor him
Howie: It isn't backdooring if someone comes off with the veto
James: Big Brother put in their Fuck James clause
James: It's not fair!
James: This has gone from being an easy week to just what they wanted
James [about how far George went to win]: What do you expect? The guy sells himself out for a living
James: We'll probably be a bellyfloop contest next
James: I used to think this was a game show.. now we know it's for tv and the game is down at the bottom
James will never be convinced now that it wasn't rigged, and perhaps it was.. but they'll never convince me that James of all people didn't have a plan in place in case the veto was used, or that not one of these 'all-stars' asks about that when they make their safe-from-nom deals with whoever is HOH
Marcellas comes up and they ask him what they should do - watch the video - he & James each get angry for a moment but the moments pass.. afterward Kaysar complains of an earache that's bad enough to make him drop a few F-bombs.. Howie goes for alcohol and the ear drops that are working for him - Kaysar's not sure if he should let Howie play doctor on him but he does.. George dives into some slop, alone
Then Janelle gives me another shout-out! Watch the video.. James says "Hamsterwatch is a bigger hate site for me than Howie's website" but they go on to agree that different sites & people are going to like or dislike different hamsters for different reasons (it's human nature after all).. James also explains that he & I came to a truce before they went in this year
Huge thanks to Zack at JanellePierzina.org for catching & recording this one! And also to immunegb5 who posted another video of it
I don't know what James will think of today's episode but others have said worse about him today.. I thought he knew now that I'm about entertainment above all but he still seems to think this was an April support site last year, hmmm.. (he must have been looking at the daily arrows only).. but to his credit, he does seem to be less deceitful and more entertaining this time around.. by the way, I'm pretty sure I've never said I hated any of them - life's too short for that
James finally comes downstairs to grab some of last night's pizza and tells Diane he'd like to talk with her sometime - she follows him back up.. soon Erika & Danielle are there also, maybe to socialize or maybe to make sure they aren't floated out
Jase borrows some bleach to get rid of the remaining blue.. James congratulates George on his performance in the veto comp.. George then adds insult to injury with a snappy comeback to James' invitation to come up and chat - watch the video
James: Good going.. come and see me, my door's always open
George: My door days a'going is done.. I make appointments
Feast and famine
The first of their catered feasts won yesterday arrives in the panty in the form of dozens of Asian food containers
They all gather round and dive in happily, chattering away.. Jase's touch-ups look like the beginnings of a tinfoil hat
I think BB had Will tan up again to avoid that continuity problem I mentioned yesterday - maybe I tipped them off? rats
We get a preview of the post-veto segment for Tuesday's show as the camera shows them gathered at the table from a backyard vantage point, happy voices muffled through the glass.. then pans over to George sitting alone out there, eating his slop in silence.. then back to the window & the dining hamsters, and back to George again
Finally business seems to be over for the day.. Janelle, Diane, James & Howie play some badminton.. Diane talks to a camera for awhile, asking if it likes girls
Later she hangs out with Willboogie while badminton continues.. a few whispers go back & forth but I don't catch anything noteworthy.. Will checks out but later revives at the hot tub.. Erika & her bikini show up too
Another booze delivery!
More booze shows up in the pantry and things are looking up for us again
They bring it in but the excitement from yesterday is long gone - ice cream holds more appeal for them
Most of them wander off to bed far earlier than usual, though there are a few pairings that show up.. Kaysar tells Danielle of his concerns about Marcellas - watch the video (it actually starts with what looked like some promising Will/Howie banter fun, and switches over to these two)
Diane has a friendly, get-to-know-you chat with George, which is nice to see - he's been treated like a pariah by most of them
Janelle & Howie study outside for awhile.. Kaysar's there with them but not participating.. he stays up alone a long time after they go off to bed
So it goes in the habitat.. it's been a strange day and a very dull night
One thing that has me puzzled is how so many of them say they don't want a floater to win the game, but in the same breath say "Big Brother is not a team sport"
The TLC series - lots of extras
Best of Trading Spaces
They Hated It!
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
