After their dawn meeting Kaysar & Janelle decide to stay up til 11.30 tonight so they can turn their schedules (mostly Janelle's) back to days again, and be fresh for the live show and HOH comp
They run the backyard then jumprope, do lunges, weights.. then they run some more.. watch the videos: running and after the first 100
They joke & laugh too, and talk as friends.. it's fun for the mornies who are usually asleep when Janelle & Kaysar have this kind of chat that overnighters enjoy.. they say they'll keep each other up all day, then separate to the pool and bath
The rest of them are woken up to vote (they think).. feedmasters give us a series of still lifes around the house as they prep
I like these - they're easy to understand, confusion-free.. the messy and the neat
Most are up and primping or eating but there's always a body count somewhere - this morning's are creative.. Will's hand is barely visible in his cocoon of many colors on the floor.. Marcellas' hand peeks out of the pink.. Howie exposes more, like he does
Danielle warms up for what turns into a very busy day for her by giving someone or something a very disapproving look (I'm not sure who or what).. she says to James "Why don't you make me some pancakes, bitch" - his face looks like he's partly amused but partly not.. she finally gets called into Diary and we have a bit of feeds slippage
Erika wonders about big hair.. Marcellas floats through like a vision in white before settling into a slump
James sends a finger-crossed hi to Sarah.. Diane's not feeling well or something, but she joins the hurry up & wait crowd
Boogie & Erika resume their positions from last night/this morning.. no telling what does or doesn't go on under those blankets this time
Pretty soon it's a full body count again.. Diane comes through with an annoyed sounding "What, you aren't voting?!"
Apparently the ones who were called in were doing farewells.. nobody in there or out here knows what's up with them not voting - 8 live votes is a lot of network tv time, and there's no reason to do it live when it looks unanimous
"Let's not confuse grooming with sexuality"
It's what it is and it's what it looks like, and it's funny stuff.. it will definitely make the air show.. watch the video
Amid the buzzzzzzz Will works Howie a bit, speculating on a Final Four of Willboogie, Howie & Janelle.. if the HOH comp will be combined with the absent eviction vote somehow.. if someone's coming back.. if there's a team comp coming up - he notes there are six has-beens that didn't make it in plus four evictees after tomorrow, making an equal number of ten in & out of the house
Danielle joins and asks what they're doing, and they speculate about the public voting for a returnee or evictee.. Will finally agrees to do Howie's neck - but he does it from a safe, non-gay distance.. Janelle, Kaysar & James also join
Danielle: She told us in the room America's not going to deal with any evictions
It's Wednesday so the camera comes out.. Kaysar sets the auto-timer and they're a happy BB6 family again, for a minute at least
Then things get dicey - I don't really know what happens, I'm barely paying attention and only really tune in when Danielle hits the fan.. pics are in the order I capped them
Will's got them all thinking and/or parannoying - nobody knows why they haven't voted.. Janelle says it wouldn't be fair if there's no eviction and she doesn't get to send someone home for her HOH.. Erika says "That's why you never put up a pawn"
They say maybe America will send someone back in.. Janelle says maybe we'll send someone for Chilltown since they're only two, like we sent Kaysar back for her since they were only three against the nerd herd.. they also talk about the various endurance comps they were in.. Howie asks if anyone wants to finish his shaving for him and drops trou on his way inside
I kind of tune in & out but I'd noted the above.. apparently shortly or immediately after this Danielle makes a quick stop in the pantry with James and tells him Janelle told her that her game is weak
Then I catch Danielle in the red room (redrum) telling the same to Marcellas, who's folding clothes (neatly).. he doesn't seem overly concerned and responds in a "that's what she's like" kind of tone
Next she goes to the gym and hops on the treadmill next to Boogie.. she tells him the same tale and he's interested.. it's very whispery but they become animated and take on a "we'll get her/them" kind of tone
Danielle gets more & more wound up the more she talks about it, miming Janelle eating from her bowl as she said what's now evolved to "you're weak".. she finally says Diary needs to let her come in and vent or bring some wine in - watch the video
Danielle: I'm gonna slap that weave right out of her hair
Danielle: Weak? I'll show her weak..
Danielle: I need to go to the diary room and vent before I say some things on live feed I shouldn't say
For those who say I stick up for Janelle and can see no wrong in her, please realize that updaters at Jokers, Sucks and BB Chatter are equally confused by this event - nobody heard anything said other than 'America brought Kaysar back for us'.. most sites are saying Danielle's flat-out lying
I'm not going to say she made it all up because I wasn't paying all that much attention and I think it's stupid to ass-ume someone's lying just cuz I didn't hear something said.. it's very possible Janelle said something that could be construed as 'your game is weak' by someone who's looking for ammo, but I do know what they were talking about when Janelle was eating, and I was dumbfounded by the suddenness & intensity of Danielle's rant, and how she went looking for someone to tell it to.. I have more video snippets of her with Boogie but the sound quality is too poor to understand what they're saying
Meanwhile Diane's doing her thing and getting ready for her exit
She does all her nails as the hamsters pass through the bathroom/social zone, like they do.. (Janelle doesn't seem like she's been involved in anything recently)
Danielle goes to Diary and back out again.. Janelle asks if she voted and she says no.. Danielle sits with Diane for a minute and we get another odd eruption
Danielle: I expected you to fight
Diane: It didn't seem like there was anything else I could do
Diane: If Janelle wants to be a fucking c***, so be it.. I never use that word unless I mean it
Again that defeated attitude from Diane.. it's not surprising to hear her use that word for the person who nominated her, but there's no fire behind it like we'd expect from Diane
Danielle finds James and runs the story down again, and gives him another working over as far as what to do next.. this time she's definitely stretching the truth, to put it mildly, and they talk about putting up Janelle next week with Marcellas or Howie - watch the video (it's whispery).. Danielle tells James not to tell Kaysar anything.. James asks if he should go for the HOH or throw it, and she says things like "what they did to you" (last year)
Next thing you know, Howie's giving George a full body hair shaving
Boogie observes awhile and Erika works her pink awhile.. feedsters run screaming
The string-pullers separate with their minions, stragglers & spies, like they do: Danielle plays cards with Marcellas, Erika, Diane, Kaysar, George & Boogie.. pretty soon they move to the floor like little kids.. the game directions are loaded with subcontext and symbolic like chess with a lot about "these three jacks" (James/Kaysar/Howie).. it's a game BB3 Roddy taught them by the way
Erika [to Marcellas]: We are not the nerd herd
Diane [learning the game]: Can you add another person?
Diane flirts with Howie and says he can touch her, if she stays.. James encourages the idea.. she leaves and James works over Howie, telling him the whole house is after Janelle and therefore them, and they need to do something to protect themselves.. he seems desperate - watch the video
James: Janey didn't do what we wanted - do we do what she wants now??
Will's on Erika/Janelle duty upstairs - Howie comes & goes.. they talk about ordinary things, dates, relationships etc.. like they do
See how Erika gets around?
All the chaos ceases suddenly as Kaysar prays on two feeds and Janelle bathes on the other two
He may pray throughout the day but it usually just shows up on the feeds early mornings and late nights.. I don't post a lot of caps of his prayers but they're a part of BB6 & BB7 so here we are.. after all the tension today it's a nice moment of zen, or something
Another still life: this one surrounds George who's making another costume with felt & bandaids.. Howie helps by warming up a pin on the stove, or something
Will, Marcellas & Erika are up in the pink.. the girls climb into bed with Will and Marcellas tells them to stop it.. James shows up but I tune out - I'm OD'd on his nervousing and their silly game overall.. vote or no vote, Diane is not staying
She knows it too.. she plays checkers with George and complains about money problems.. rather than offer a vote he offers advice that she doesn't want to hear.. it's like a dad & daughter convo.. later she tries again with Will & Kaysar and gets more advice.. Will talks with her a long, long time and offers support, good advice and several job options if she stays in SoCal
Janelle & Kaysar's plan to stay awake in the day and sleep at night doesn't turn out any better than my plan to make today a lite episode or skip it completely.. they're still up with Will at 5am again and so am I.. they're a good overnight trio and I hope we have more of these convos to come.. they talk about some interesting stuff including the notorious pre-season chat and Janelle/Diane feud and Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Most of them think tomorrow's HOH is the endurance, at last - they've been on indoor lockdown all afternoon & evening.. they never voted
Here's a tidbit for those of you who read all the way to the bottom.. when Diane leaves tomorrow keep a close eye on her: possibly neither Mr. & Mrs. Smith nor our 15th hamster Toni Ferrari are done yet.. apparently when Diane gets evicted, James or Erika are supposed to say or whisper to her "Toni says hi" to let her know they're the replacement M/M Smith and the alliance will carry on.. I don't know.. you can get all the scoop at here.. thanks to Hamsterwatcher BigSis for this
I hope to be able to reconstruct yesterday's lost episode within a day or two from Google or Yahoo caches.. thanks for visiting
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
