March 14, 2008 - Day 36 (or 37)
>> James is Head of Household - Sheila and Ryan are nominated - James won veto <<
End of the line?|
It looks like Sheila thinks it is for her: James won the veto
James is hinting he'd like to see Ryan booted instead, but I don't think Sheila knows that.. Joshuah said this should be a week without much campaigning - I guess we file that in the ever-growing It's Easy For You To Say pile
It sounds like it was a 2-legged-hamster sized version of their 4-legged rodents' cage, with a balance beam walk? - they were impressed with the setup.. Natalie hosted, and it sounds like she held the fuzzy guys, awww.. she added James to her growing list of hamsters she'll help in the future if she can
Adam & Matt's Bible study continues.. James & Chelsia's stuff continues too, with mutual zit-popping between nuzzling.. when they got in the shower together, the feeds shifted to napping hamsters
Matt: How's Ruth?
Adam: Ruth's short
Matt: How could you be 100 pages ahead of me already? You must be skimming
Adam: No, I'm a very thorough reader
Sheila went to work on James while everyone else napped.. he told her he wasn't going to change his noms so she started justifying her two votes against him Wednesday, and went on to drop Matt, Natalie and others into it.. then she worked on Matt, Natalie, Sharon and Adam
Later some of them compared notes: "Oh, you 'owe' her too?" "She piggybacked on you too?" Matt said he doesn't know what's worse, being on the block or being around Sheila when she is
Life of Riley
No sooner had I named them Layabouts today then BB gave them last summer's oversize croquet set
They decided it must be to practice for a luxury comp, since getting $750 a week to lay around and eat junk food apparently isn't luxury enough
Only James & Ryan played before their free dinner was ready, and it didn't take long for the ball to plop into the pool and almost through the sliding glass door, or for James to mallet the puddle Joshuah made watering the astroturf
If looks could kill..
..there'd be 7 or 8 dead hamsters
Take one pissed off nominee, add wine, and it's fight night again
It was about this time last summer when Dustin yelled through the door.. Sheila carried it on outside, facing off with Ryan about $10k among other things.. Adam had a turn too, a follow-up from his & Sheila's earlier spat about him not washing his dishes
She was unstoppable again/still.. the crowd was spellbound again/still.. later most of them replayed it as Sheila spent yet another hour or two in Diary - Natalie's doing impressions now
I'm not sure if that's what Sharon was reacting to here or not - I don't listen to her much, but I was surprised to see this face from her.. later Matt gave Natalie another massage.. still later, he gathered with the boys for sex chat, but he was uncharasterically uninvolved for the most part
They were urging him to let Natalie service him, and he told them about the BJs - apparently there was at least one more than we thought, on Day 2 - he said that's what began his whole America's Playa routine.. when he went in to bed later, he whacked his leg on the short fence between room sections - whose bright idea were those? The rooms are greenlit for us, but pitch black for them
Update: Natalie did go at it again, with Ryan & Adam in the room, awake
The previously sequestered six have been released to the wild and are roaming free again.. there will be no more revivals
None from me today.. catch up previous videos in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Layabouts edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Speaking of disgusted, why bother going through that voting song & dance just to throw it out the window? I'm reminded of the 'Dallas' episode where Bobby Ewing 'dreamed' the previous season or two to make things convenient for the writers. They're just lucky they didn't charge for cell phone votes this time - the whole thing was probably just meant to generate traffic to the CBS website. Otherwise, they left out flying pickle juice and flying water from fight day, Julie wore her worst ensemble yet, and the phrase 'crap my pants' was introduced to her boudoir. The best part of the show was when they crossed their audio lines: when Allison was asked her thoughts about Ryan winning HOH, we heard Matt talking about the bathroom. That about sums things up for Wednesday's show: just another hoax in another season of hoaxes and failed 'twists'. They didn't deliver the promised revival but we now have three revived hamsters in there: one third of the current habitat has already been evicted.
Paired with Sheila
Third party ups for making VH1's 'Best Week Ever' tonight, and in the first 10 minutes! The piece said they were going to take a look at 'the oddest pair on Big Brother: Adam's eyes' followed by appropriate clips to illustrate the point.
Paired with James
She laid around 3/4 of the day easy, but woke up enough to bash Sheila for awhile after her tirade. James only visits for a couple makeout sessions a day lately, so she might be doing some wondering there.
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD - HOLDS VETO
Paired with Chelsia
After winning the veto he made a few lofty one-on-one speeches, smacked a puddle, then went to bed to sleep through the evening. He missed the Sheila Show but the boys replayed it for him later, before he went back to bed.
Paired with Neil Sharon
Very low profile day again, he spent most of it laying around with Sharon, trashing various and sundry. By rights, he should be scared of a backdooring - maybe he is, and that's why he's keeping so quiet lately. He told Ryan the vote would be 6-0 in his favor, but most of them are talking about voting Ryan out and Joshuah knows that. He reported right back to the boss (Sharon) who whispered while he talked out loud.. what's the point of that? He also said he's scared of Sheila so I guess she'll be the one female he won't be calling names.. to her face.
Paired with Natalie
A second massage and not rising to the guys' bait about Natalie: it seems that her hanging on the disco ball for 4½ hours (they think it was 5) and including him on her deal, unasked, have made him start realizing she's not just a handy bikini? Maybe he's never had a female friend before. He also stepped in as peacemaker of sorts by changing the subject to wind down the Sheila Show before she was called to Diary for another marathon to rehash it. But he's still laying around way too much.
Paired with Matt
More third party ups for showing up as a VH1 finalist for "Who's having the best week ever?' They gave it to an old lady who got trapped in a closet (à la R Kelly) but Natalie deserves it. She made two dinners for them all, tacos followed by steak & potatoes, and then did Sheila impersonations that weren't all that good, but they were funny. Even she took a long nap today which isn't a good sign: she's the Energizer bunny to their dead batteries.
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
He's the last one I expected fireworks from but good on him that he delivered, and with valid points. Everyone else just sits around and listens to Sheila or tries to make a getaway, but he called her on some of her stuff and it's about time someone did. Granted, he's $10k ahead of the others - 15 counting Jen's - and since he's also nominated, it's natural that he'd defend that money as well-earned and separate from the game at large.. <koff>
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
I typed Sheila's stuff here by mistake and then realized I got nothing for Sharon anyway except a rerun of her still being on blue crack. To make matters worse, she started laughing again.
Paired with Adam
She's not even the target but she can't draw enough bull's eyes on herself lately. She needs wine every night, and lots of it: we need more of her stuff coming out for a crowd and less of her droning on & on to each of them with the same spiel ten times a day. More additions to her growing list of contradictions: for someone who claims to have only seen "parts of BB8", today she rattled off her list of hot guys from all seasons. She's always talking like she's entitled to win - well, so did Dick and he did win.. hmmm. She's also always talking about needing the money (don't we all?) and always having had people take care of her in the past, yet I don't believe she's mentioned the Sultan of Brunei in her story loop.. I wonder why not? She went on 'E! True Hollywood Story' and 'Dateline' about him.
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.
Revive-a-Hamster winner & loser
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.
