March 17, 2008 - Day 39 (or 40)
>> James is Head of Household - Ryan & Matt are nominated <<
Simpatico por el Diablo|
So says Matt's shirt today.. well, it's green
He's campaigning like a crazy man, accosting them individually and in twos & threes, and while making mostly valid points - that it wasn't him but Ryan who made & broke the two-week deal last week, and who sent James through the backdoor - he doesn't seem to be winning many points with his aggressive style
Chelsia's reaction: "Honestly, this is annoying the FUCK out of me!".. Sheila continues to jump into and take over any convo that's handy, like she does.. Matt doesn't have anyone to commiserate with but Ryan, who's in the same boat - but without the valid excuses.. Chelsia continues to change tops doing the double-bra-and-switch method, but continues to show all her junk when changing bottoms - I don't understand the logic here
Sheila: It might be two to.. how many people we got voting?
They persist in thinking the recycled oversize croquet set is about a comp: they seem to have no grasp of the concept of having something to do just for the sake of something to do
All nine of them gathered in the pantry/conference room to ooh and ahh over their picture cake and to gather up the food & booze
All their pictures were on the cake including Neil - it was good of BB to remember him again.. Joshuah said something about it being Day 40 but that's wrong: it's Day 39.. they have been nudged to believe the CBS day count, which was changed when Julie flubbed on the February 21 show
Feeds went to trivia so they can have their party with music.. they'll be back in time for Showtime.. getting booze this early with the house in a campaigning uproar could make for a fun night - here's hoping!
No such luck
Remember when they'd come back drunk from their halfway party and provide good viewing material? Marvin & Adria dirty dancing on BB5, Janelle & Beau in a huge fight on BB6.. I guess those days are gone
Feeds came back amazingly soon to a table loaded with pizza boxes and Joshuah eating cake by himself, acting depressed
Not much of the custom cake was eaten.. Matt carefully cut off his & Ryan's pics and put them in a baggie on ice in the freezer.. Natalie struggled with sticky saran wrap to cover the remains
Matt kept working on everyone all day and it was horribly tedious
James, Chelsia, Joshuah & Sharon hatched a plan to make him think he's getting some of their votes.. James did a happy dance when it looked like Sheila bought it
Most of them went to bed real early.. Matt, Ryan, Natalie & Chelsia hung out for awhile, telling stories, and it was kinda fun for a change.. Chelsia wasn't really waving at us, but she did chew her mouth and stay uncharacteristically quiet when they were trying to figure out who the porn star in the house is - (I don't know if she knows about James or not)
Natalie had them all going by saying (without saying) that she's a Seattle Seahawks cheerleader.. she was believable, and they do have a Natalie on the squad - but it isn't her
Meanwhile.. it appears that Adam may have done his doodah again: he came out of the toilet, grabbed a tissue, stuck it down his pants and roamed it around before heading off to the kitchen to get some cake and various other snacks.. for those keeping track, he didn't wash his hands
Matt's campaign spat with Chelsia plus Sheila jumps in; cake & booze delivery; and Adam does his doodah (maybe?) are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - STFU edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Sunday's the only night they don't go up against 'American Idol' but they sure don't take advantage of that. Despite more 'shockwaves' and the 'house turned upside down' again, this show was dull and hard to follow: it seems it'd be even more so for tv-only viewers. Per editing, Sheila was nominated virtually out of the blue (at least since the first few minutes of the episode), and I could be wrong but I think only a few minutes passed between James & Natalie striking their deal and Natalie coming off the HOH apparatus - not 20 minutes. Their golden boy James won't come out smelling so rosy after they run today's veto meeting, even though they didn't include his 'honorable game' and 'not gonna backdoor anyone' stuff, or his p.s. saying the Natalie/Matt deal included veto replacements. Joshuah is the other CBS darling for some reason, but he was silly by any standards talking about people coming back and avenging their evictions.. to Sharon!
They honed in on one of the true gems of this season with their 'Bible Buddies' segment, but the voiceover redo 'Jacob married two girls in one week' was a desperate attempt at being PC, and it was too little, too late.. besides, 'bitches' was what made that line funny. Resounding negative rating and WTF #742: they've revised the day count again! Julie said on Wednesday 3/12 it was Day 35, perpetuating her wrong count since her first live show, but tonight's show said that was Day 36, which is two off from accurate! They've since convinced the hamsters of the wrong count so just wait til they have a comp regarding that topic, and cry foul. What on earth is wrong with them - no calendars in the production office, or just too busy doing damage control lately to bother to use one?
Paired with Sheila
Even James commented to Chelsia about how disgusting he is, saying he'd been watching him on the spyscreen going thru the food & the fridge, stopping to scratch himself, and going back for more food. He's one of the few providing comic relief in there and that's pretty sad. I said way back when that he was going to be this year's Cowboy and I'm sticking to that.. he'll probably end up in 2nd place too.
Paired with James
She had quite a day, spatting with Matt and then becoming giddy about the new Trick Matt plan. Maybe I'm reading into it, but she looked uncomfortable when the subject of who's a porn star came up, especially since Natalie was saying how disgusting that would be. She contributed nothing there but she repeated it to James during their late night, (sort of) secret rendezvous - after reporting on the other topics - and he was the one who looked uncomfy. She also said about the plan, if needed: 'I'll have my toes crossed when I swear on this fu- fricking Bible.. sorry God, is that bad?'
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Paired with Chelsia
He's getting cocky as all get-out and danced like a little girl after Sheila left his room, convinced the plan to convince Matt of phony votes would work. I'm pretty sure he only wants a 3-3 tie so he can break it dramatically on CBS. Too bad for him (and all of them) they don't have a clue about how the jury works.. these things usually backfire, especially when there's no reason for them other than being nasty for nasty's sake. He told Chelsia to swear on the Bible if she had to, and when she said she wouldn't swear on her mom, he said 'If you have to, do it! Come on, it's only fucking words, man.' Last minute upgrade and Line of the Day award for questioning the crappy CBS continuity: 'There's no like kind of flow: there's hearts, Valentine's, then it's dead fish, Jericho, then fondue, and then the disco thing.. where does this all fit in?'
Paired with Neil Sharon
I didn't see a lot of him today except when he was moping over cake.
Paired with Natalie
Enough's enough! Talk about campaigning.. if I have to hear his 'I never screwed you over' and 'I don't want to spend my birthday alone in sequester' one more time I'm going to lose it. His is the kind of campaign style that turns people against him who were for him before he started yapping. To top it off, he said he had a dream about BB8 Jen but didn't elaborate, and then he did a pinky swear with Sheila. He's looking like a goner for sure but it's possible that in the race for the other team to make a 3-3 vote, they might overcompensate and make it 4-2 in Matt's favor. He also talked about the lousy cocaine in Vegas, and said his boys sell it and would set up the other hamsters when they have their reunion party there.. I bet his pals were happy to hear that go out.
Paired with Matt
I can't handle her long game chats with Sheila, but she came back to herself tonight with storytime outside, including convincing them that she's an NFL cheerleader. The Seahawks have a Natalie but she isn't ours. She really needs to drop the 'good people' routine: she's about as far from BB8 Amber as can be but that phrase is a reminder of things we don't need to be reminded of. Plus it's dopey.
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
Just another day on the block, but he did do a little campaigning today. He was fun and participated at storytime when they were comparing notes about the pre-feeds days. He double-crossed some of them last week after breaking his deal to double-cross others, yet he's the one the original double-crossees want to keep.. go figure. He might have a strong reality career in front of him. At the rate he's going, he might show up on 'Celebrity Fit Club' or 'The Biggest Loser'.. no Jen required.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
Paired with Adam
At least she stopped ranting in full voice and lowered it to a loud whisper, making it far easier to ignore. Watching a 45-year-old woman pinky swear with another adult was just ridiculous.
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.
