March 18, 2008 - Day 40 (or 41)
>> James is Head of Household - Ryan & Matt are nominated <<
Let me get that for you|
It's team zit popping again - everyone say awww ewww
James keeps telling Chelsia to trash him to the others so nobody thinks they're working together - ooookay.. non-fake trashtalk is flying too, and it isn't pretty
Chelsia lifted her towel to show off her tan line - caps like this were rare in seasons past - this time they're commonplace.. Ryan worked some more on his "before" for when he goes on "Biggest Loser"/"Celebrity Fit Club".. the camera came out again for the (mostly) happy family pretense
James [to Sheila]: Let's take pictures - we hate each other.. come on, come on
Natalie [to Adam]: I want to see you scratching your nuts.. put your hand in your pants, that's your classic move
Joshuah's getting all heated up again, threatening to attack Natalie's mom or Sheila's son on tomorrow's live show if either of them doesn't throw HOH and/or wins it
Joshuah: It'll be better than the first three and more painful, and it will involve a restraining order outside the house
Joshuah: I have an appetite for blood, but maybe I'll settle for food
He and fellow non-nominee Sheila are mouthing off non-stop about each other to whoever will listen.. Joshuah's offering more direct bait but they seem to be equally wound up.. Matt asked Joshuah not to explode tonight
Chelsia showed up looking like a Star Wars character, and went on to do nasty impressions of both Sheila & Natalie.. she remains pleasant enough to their faces
She applied lotion to her pubic area, or something - James enjoyed it.. he said she should add a parrot to her back tattoo, or a "parakeen falcon".. tonight's show reversed the day count yet again - they're back to Julie's wrong version.. I'm not changing mine again though: it's accurate
Joshuah kept at it for a few hours, rehearsing everything he says he's going to say to Sheila and Natalie, but mostly Sheila
It was nasty, ugly stuff and he was very proud of it.. Sharon enjoyed it too, cackling away like a banshee
Time will tell if he lives up to his threats of saying it all to their faces or not
Matt made an 11th hour pitch to James & Chelsia.. James was smug, saying he didn't know yet, etc etc - Chelsia remained silent.. Adam made his rounds to see what the voting buzz was and then settled into his creepy chair.. this cap of Sharon eating is from earlier in the day - I wasn't sure what to do with it - I had no idea she ate like she does, and I was surprised
After most were asleep, James shaved off a patch of pubes to leave as a present for the early risers.. he tried it on as a mustache too, to Chelsia's delight
I don't know if BB let him leave it there or not, but it's something for you early risers to be on the lookout for in the morning
Matt & Natalie had a before-bed chat, with her assuring him that all will be well (it probably won't).. then they went to bed together - their sidebar tally did not go up
James talks about his blog - Sharon eats; Joshuah threatens to explode on the live show; More Joshuah ranting; and James's pube present in two parts are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Sun damage edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value, and we need more of it!
Tuesday's show sure simplified the past week and I guess that's something. They changed the day count yet again - maybe they were thrown off by Leap Year? 4½ hours on the HOH apparatus turned into 5, 'Bible Buddies' made another appearance, and Sheila came across as an almost sympathetic character.. were they even watching her this week? They gave Adam some subtitles but he needs them a lot more (on the feeds too, please). Their golden boy James showed off his grammar with 'I was furiated' and 'Adam confessed to me that he wasn't the other vote'. Mostly he came across as if he thinks he's the first hamster to ever backstab someone, and he sounded like he should get an award for that. The veto comp setup wasn't as cute as they'd made it sound, and while I would have watched the whole thing on feeds, it lasted way too long for tv. All in all, just another Tuesday show, albeit with a fairly cohesive storyline compared to how it all played out on the feeds, but that isn't too surprising. Remember how James came back in to play an 'honorable game', 'not gonna backdoor anyone' and so forth? I have to wonder if Diary 'suggested' to him the storyline that unfolded tonight.
Paired with Sheila
He got busy all over tonight, probably trying to figure out which would be the safest way to vote. He also asked the assembled late night group 'Why am I the pervert?' Maybe a playback of him twiddling a two-handed pocket rocket while Joshuah ranted about Sheila would clue him in.
Paired with James
Between her not-nice impersonations of Sheila & Natalie and trashing them both almost nonstop, you have to ask yourself what happened to the girl who screamed at Amanda about talking behind backs, and how if she had anything to say, she'd say it up front. You could also ask what her daddy thinks about her liking to get slapped during sex, but we'll probably never have an answer for either.
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Paired with Chelsia
Finally his week at the top is almost over, and none too soon. If it went to his head any more than it already has, he'd float away like a balloon. He said he railed on Sheila in particular in his HOH blog and if true, that'll be the first juicy one of those we've had this season. During Matt's 11th hour pitch, James said 'There are no sides' and I had to clean coffee off my monitor.
Paired with Neil Sharon
I run hot & cold on his rants: tonight's was fun as he got so worked up over.. what? He threatened to attack during the live show but apparently Diary said no can do, but he might anyway - especially if Sheila or Natalie win HOH. He also threatened a warmup during the HOH lockdown and that could be fun.. that's a very small room for all nine even when they're pretending they get along. He keeps comparing himself to BB8 Dick but all I have to say is: Joshuah, you sir, are no Evel Dick.
Paired with Natalie
It's looking like the end of the line for him and he knows it, false reassurances aside. He added to my coffee cleaning task when he said to James & Chelsia 'I'm not gonna keep hounding people'.
Paired with Matt
I think she'll hold up to both Matt's eviction and Joshuah's taunting, and she could come through and win HOH despite both. She's the only spark of fun we have left in there and she doesn't have anyone to fun with, which is a shame.
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
He & Matt took naps together so neither could go campaigning on their own, then each went campaigning on his own. It boggles the mind that Ryan broke a deal with Joshuah et al, and then backdoor'd James - but he's the one they both want to keep? He's harmless enough I guess, and it's looking like he'll get at least one more week of good eats.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
She encouraged Joshuah's rants again, and she'll hide in the shadows again if/when he pulls off his threats to say his stuff to Sheila and/or Natalie directly. She's barely there at the best of times, but today she started with that laugh again, and also showed that he eats like one of those animatronic dinosaurs, chewing with her food hanging out of her mouth.
Paired with Adam
I'm not sure how she & Joshuah always know where the other is and what they're saying, but it happens continuously. It should be a good show if he carries out even 1/10 of what he threatened towards her, but they'll need an extra crew to mop up the blood.
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.
