What the hell?
In Kaysar's "Early Show" interview Julie says "Last night you looked completely shocked when I revealed to you that James, your alliance member, is not completely trustworthy, so I want to get your reaction to a piece of secret video that we're about to play of your friend Janelle, and you tell me if what you're about to see surprises you.. This is a video that no one's ever seen before in primetime or anything else"
They proceed to show Janelle telling a story to Kaysar, Danielle, Will & Marcellas about an ex and a girlfriend and a knife that has indeed been seen - it was on the feeds, and Janelle later said she'd made it up to tell a good story.. big whup
The piece includes Diary comments by Danielle ("Bing! You crazy!") and Will ("Janelle's got a long-standing history of being very vindictive when things don't go her way" - said with a smile) but the really surprising part comes from Julie again: "Was this eye opening to you about your - she's one of your closest friends, if not your closest friend in the house?" Kaysar says he thought it was a joke at first (which it was) and that he wanted to leave the room
Julie says "And lose her number, quickly" - watch the video
First of all, what does that have to do with Kaysar who deserves an exit interview like everyone else? Or James, who Julie began the question with? I've seen Jase, Nakomis & Diane go into great (albeit uninteresting) game detail on the "Early Show" but Kaysar gets asked about a Janelle made-up story? WTF? Janelle didn't have anything to do with the screwup that caused Julie to work late
EWE R SAFE
No, that's not confirmed as the Coup d'Etat answer, but it's a lot more likely than the DNA DoNotAssume or Wolf in Sheep's Clothing stuff they're guessing.. they probably still have last year's leftover safes which would be a good diversion: prize angst could make them overlook a safe being a clue
Word on the street is they got the middle sized table but I think they just removed some chairs.. the beds return, but the sheep hasn't been seen since its five minute post-live show cameo
More has-beens arrive for the food comp: BB2 Nicole, BB4 Jun, and one of my all-time faves BB5 Marvin - cooks/chefs all - judge their home-made slop concoctions.. I miss it but Aldav's got the video.. I gather they all eat this week, except George of course
We get a preview of what the Coup might look like when Janelle nominates Danielle & Erika (especially Erika, who's so distressed about her quickie HOH she sees the shrink).. apparently Janelle tells Danielle in the ceremony that her game is strong (which Danielle runs with, it being so different than The Weak Story) and she tells Erika that she likes her but detests her game
After noms videos: Willboogie - Danielle & Erika - Janelle with Willboogie & George
It's mostly the usual stuff game-wise: gotta-win-veto, what's-the-coup, gotta-win-HOH, etc.. and the usual odd poses here & there
Erika goes on a foraging binge (definitely unusual) and James deviates from his usual horizontal position, kinda
Not long after noms they get a booze delivery and feedsters cheer, hoping for a fight & excitement.. we get to enjoy a bit of their sippy dialog - watch the video.. it's all very promising, what with Will getting each of them going (without them realizing it) and jokingly pulling the wine away from Danielle.. she's not joking when she pulls it back though.. Erika runs her fingers through Howie's hair during a break
But Boogie's stories about an Amsterdam hooker bring us flames and WAY TOO LOUD music and the party's over by the time we get back
James, Guacamole Monster & George tell love stories to each other and George gets attacked by a giant ant.. later they meet up with Danielle & Howie in the red room (redrum) for a Hare Krishna meeting, or something
Janelle hangs out with Willboogie & Erika at the hot tub for awhile, and then she's replaced by Danielle - the tone quickly changes from fun & light to serious & deadly.. between shifts Will tells us that Erika & Boogie have been an item for six months - but that doesn't jive with what Willboogie have said to each other when alone
Meanwhile, Marcellas cleans the fridge - they definitely got milk
Erika gets busy
I apologize for what follows.. I seem to be doing that a lot this season
First Boogie joins Will in the shower and they whisper around the dividing curtain a bit.. normally Will might say something like "It isn't about sexuality - it's about strategy" but he doesn't this time
Then Erika comes along and peeks in, then hops in and peeks
Will's outta there pretty soon after that, and Erika waves at us for some reason.. afterward she dances (literally) around the bathroom and around the house in her towel
Meanwhile Will talks to Janelle & Howie for a long, long time about the game, split the money, veto, etc etc etc and bores her to tears, and us too
Erika & Boogie make up the big, big eviction bed and share a kiss - "just one" - before turning in.. watch the video
They make slurpy sounds on each others' hands awhile and kiss some more.. she keeps saying they have to stop before Marcellas comes in to bed.. they separate and she follows to his side.. they separate again and her feet go after him.. they separate again and he goes undercovers - watch the 10 minute video.. Will visits for a minute
This could be Boogie following up the showmance angle and/or cementing an alliance, or they could have been an item before going in.. they say some interesting stuff about seeing each other at the casting special and pretending to act surprised?
Erika says she doesn't want to hear anymore Amsterdam stories, and "this is like a big elaborate date you've got me on"
Boogie gives us a V-for-victory signal and later a thumbs up.. he also glances directly up at the camera a few times
