March 9, 2008 - Day 31 (or 32)
>> Ryan is Head of Household - Sharon and James are nominated <<
>> Chelsia used the veto <<
Chelsia used the veto and Ryan put up James in her place.. the surprise was a surprise, at least to James, Chelsia, Sharon and Joshuah
Chelsia's pissed, Joshuah's livid, Sheila's laying low, and Sharon's hiding.. James says he's not angry, that he's just going to miss Chelsia - which probably didn't have much effect on Ryan - Natalie's getting & taking much of the blame for having set all this up, and she's ready for a fight
Chelsia faced off with Matt first.. he told her about Allison's comments about her stinky crotch, including and/or attributing them to Natalie.. Chelsia then spread-eagled for Natalie and they went at it.. Joshuah just kept steaming and then went off on Natalie in a very big way - topping his stuff about both Amanda and Allison.. this first round ended up with the flinging of pickle juice and water
A lull between storms had Matt lecturing Joshuah about how to talk to women (I know! go figure), Natalie dumping all of Joshuah's slop bricks into the trash (I think they were stinky) and hiding a bunch of stuff atop the sauna, James commiserating with Adam (who's playing it cool and neutral), Matt shaving Ryan's back, and Joshuah finally realizing he wasn't nom'd
I'll try to update as we go, but it's way too much to give a play-by-play.. if you were ever going to get the feeds, now is the time
All the stress & shouting around there can't be good for the cute little resident rodents
As threatened, it was too much too fast to keep much of a detailed tally.. most of the highlights are included in the ratings section but here are some added visuals
Please to enjoy
Yesterday's careful slop constructions were killed.. Natalie stuck James' stuff atop the spa, with Matt's help.. Matt also got James' stuff down for him, and almost came down himself in the process.. also, Chelsia hid Natalie's Bible and James threatened to pee on it
All's fair and (pretends to be) forgiven in the game of BB.. Sharon defied fate and made a big show of moving into the eviction bed - ever fingering her blue thing
Sheila took a couple more T-shirt breaks from the catsuit.. Adam doesn't change.. Chelsia does, often - she & James show all their goodies several times a day
An amazing day all around, and throughout it all, there's this
This was looking like the start of a slightly hotter & heavier session than most of theirs
And once again, feedmasters switched us from this..
What's the deal? Contracts & releases were signed all around, yet they're obviously keeping this pair's kissyface (and more?) sessions off the feeds.. is her dad a big cheese at a sponsor company or something?
Chelsia goes off on Natalie; Joshuah heats up; James asks Ryan why; and Joshuah speaks to air are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Very special full shred edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value, and there was tons of it
Sunday's show had a full 9 minutes of recap from Wednesday's - I guess since everyone was watching 'Idol' then? But not many have been watching Sunday installments either so why bother rehashing that much? They're still rerunning the Matt/Natalie junk even though it's very old news.. they can add all the Psycho music they want, but the fact is Matt volunteered to continue sharing a bed with Natalie soon after the live show ended, and he has been. Tinkly piano for Natalie's Bible class, the Amber/Jameka organ for Joshuah's prayer of 8 days ago, and sappy romance guitar for James/Chelsia: the BB soundtrack tells gullible viewers what to think more than their sloppy edits do. They throw another bikini comp at us and yet with all the scandalous footage of Natalie they've got, the best they could find for her was 'X, Y, and, Z' - well, that was a good one. Joshuah's solo disco happy dance won't help him much with CBS having now aired him trashing Amanda, Allison, Jen and Natalie; but that series of misogynist comments for their handful of viewers is nothing to Josh turning up on Perez Hilton and the National Enquirer as a drug-crazed stripper. All in all, a wasted show in my opinion and a long fall from last Wednesday's, especially considering the wealth of material they have to build from. Matt put it best on the feeds when talking about what would air tonight: 'nominations, food competition, and random acts of violence' - unfortunately for viewers, they left out the violence.
Paired with Sheila
No matter what happens in there, you can count on Adam to stay out of the line of fire, appear to remain neutral, talk about jerking it while watching movies in pre-show sequester, and stick his hand down his pants.
Paired with James
Yep, the feisty came out and in a fairly big way. She went after Matt & Natalie but didn't really get anywhere with either. She didn't go after Ryan who was ultimately responsible for all this, or Sheila who was indirectly responsible (although I don't think Chelsia knows that part yet). She also got nekkid on cam two or three more times so I'm sure she's gaining new fans for that stuff too. Chances are good she's not done blowing up yet, and it's a long time til Wednesday. Good times ahead!
Paired with Chelsia
I'm not sure if he was crying after the veto when he was face down in the massage mask? He was pretty droopy the rest of the day though - aside from pickle juice tossing of course - and he moped & slept a lot. He had the grace to congratulate Ryan on a well-played move, but went on to say he 'wouldn't come back and fuck you' if he gets to stay - 'at least not right off the bat'. Ryan won the match though: after James said 'I campaigned for you both times' Ryan cam back with 'But I didn't have your vote.' Touché. Maybe James really is moping because he's fallen for Chelsia, but if that's the case, why was he behind the plan to nominate her in the first place?
Paired with Neil Sharon
Let's see.. the Enquirer picked up his coked-up stripping past from Perez Hilton, and Perez is a buddy of Neil's. Maybe Neil isn't happy with what he's seeing from his one-time partner? Anyone who tuned into the feeds out of curiosity today after reading about Josh got their money's worth, as did the rest of us who were expecting it. In a few short hours he brought up the stinky crotch comments, threw water at Natalie in anger, avoided going after Ryan who made it all happen, orated effusively to nobody, said 'I'm the equal opportunity putter-downer,' and got lectured about how to treat women.. by Matt! All this, and he wasn't even nominated. The cherry on top of this Sunday: the more he talked about Natalie being dumb, the dumber it made him look, since she outsmarted him.
Paired with Natalie
Yep, he's cocky as hell and deserves to be (this time only). But to be fair, he downplayed it a lot from what I was expecting, and he even had a non-lipsmacky, semi-heartfelt convo (it came across that way anyway) with original nominee Sharon, who everyone else has forgotten about. He helped hide James' stuff but then got it down for James so he's not all bad. (Although since James accused Matt of having 'little man syndrome', why did he need Matt to reach up high for him?)
Paired with Matt
She's said she's used to getting flak from people and she proved it today by not only taking it but dishing it right back. She got attacked by both Chelsia and Joshuah and held her own against both, enjoying it even. She took the heat for Sheila's betrayal of the Estrogen Alliance, mostly I think because they never suspected Natalie could keep a secret. I'm getting a little tired of her taking full responsibility for the coup, and also of her God chat that's coming out more & more, but it was cool when she prayed to find her Bible that had been hidden from her, and then went right to it.
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
What a fun day he kick-started for us! He previewed a bit of his speech before the flames took them away: 'The whole house wants somebody gone.. this is especially tough for me, it's one of my bro's.' Alas, we'll have to wait til Wednesday's show to see the stunned faces when he said James instead of Matt. He came out looking pretty clean amid all the raging considering he's the one who caused it.. perhaps his size is a factor there? In a day with dozens of top contenders, he gets the Line of the Day award with this snippet about the next live show: 'I'm going to flirt with Julie.. I get a one-on-one with her. She's the only person I'd cheat on Jen with. Is she married?' Uhh, yup.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
I'm developing an obsession about her obsession with her blue blankieshawl thingy.. what's up with her and that thing?
Paired with Adam
Cause-and-effect ups for setting this amazing feeds day in motion, for side-stepping responsibility for it, and for this peculiar line, referring to James, I think: 'A dying dog barks the loudest.'
Paired with Ryan
She called it manipulation - I call it emotional blackmail with a lot of 'poor me' thrown in. One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), she's the poster girl for Can Dish It Out But Can't Take It. She did give us some confrontation doozies and fireworks deluxe but trust her, like one million percent, she does not care.
Paired with Amanda
He started out looking like he was on board with Matt's showmance plan and CBS picked up that angle, but then we got to know a bright, charismatic, and goofy guy who had everything going for him in there except his partner. His diplomacy was remarkable and he might have gone the distance, but he went out as another casualty of 'Til Death Do You Part'.
Paired with Alex
She began with hysterics & drama and was at the center of the biggest BB fight ever, but she went out with more of a whimper than a bang. Her moods dropped as fast as her blood sugar but to her credit, she rebounded just as fast. She & Allison had dual 911 events, but Amanda's collapse brought unexpected (and uniformed) guests into the habitat and onto the air.
Ryan's girlfriend/Paired with Parker
She & Ryan could have gone far if she hadn't opened her mouth in the first days. She made loads of enemies in a short time and took Parker down with her. She'll be remembered for super-quickie sex in the bathroom and a rash on her backside.. hmm, coincidence?
Paired with Jen
He was good watching at first til he gave up and went on strike. He bounced back a bit at the end but his doom came early when partner Jen couldn't keep her trap shut about her & Ryan. She had to go, and he was just the innocent bystander casualty. 'I'm sick of people's dumbass assinine ass comments' might be Line of the Season.
Paired with Joshuah
He left suddenly and mysteriously but wrote on his MySpace that he didn't leave for health reasons and that he won't be back. He seems like a good guy and I wish him well.. he's probably lucky he got out when he did, unscathed.
Paired with Sharon (his ex)
Gone before the feeds kicked in: he didn't even make an appearance. All that potential for rehashing their breakup and/or a jealous rage up in smoke. To make it worse, he & Sharon didn't even get an exit interview in Julie's boudoir - how rude!

This site isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why, which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.
