March 19, 2008 - Day 41 (or 42)
>> Matt evicted 4-3 (James as tiebreaker) - Adam is Head of Household <<
Another letdown? No, just a late start|
So far, Joshzillah's threats have come to nothing.. he'd said he would start the warmup during their HOH lockdown when the crew does run-throughs - complete with more audio slippage - but so far it's all quiet and they're pretending they all get along again
Sharon's been reading her Bible straight through like literature for months, but Adam's already passed her.. now that I've noticed her eating habits, I can't seem to get away from her stuffing her face
Awhile after they were freed, Joshuah talked about attacking families tonight, which set off Sheila with "What did I ever do to you?" and she ran off to Diary in near-tears.. Joshuah then told Matt & Ryan that Sheila had promised her vote to each of them.. she came out of Diary saying Joshuah had crossed legal lines since her son's a minor, and she could be right: they called him in just after.. she also pointed out that he only goes after the women.. both Matt & Ryan sat there in the crossfire
Julie said he won, so it must be true
He took over the room & the office with some presence too, drawing up the little blogging desk with its hula girl lamp to receive his visitors
After the show, Sheila seemed unsure what to do next.. Chelsia went to work on Natalie, saying she hadn't lied about the vote or anything else, and she's playing for herself.. normally the HOH room debut would go here, but it was withheld from the feeds.. Showtime got it, but feedsters got trivia again/still - it reminded me how much we could use BB5 Marvin about now
Natalie went to work on Adam & Ryan with a vengeance.. Adam pulled out a whole lot of clothes from somewhere - who knew? He proceeded to cycle through a few wardrobe changes.. Sheila asked for one of his beers, like she does, and he said "No!"
Joshuah made his pitch to his (supposed) secret alliance partner Ryan.. write your own captions for the middle pic.. then he went up to see Adam and put on one hell of a comedy show while ratting out his three teamies
Joshuah: You want somewhat of a dramatic surprise
Joshuah: Everyone thinks you're putting me up
Joshuah: As long as it's not me, I'm cool
James crashed back down to Earth like Ryan before him and all HOHs before him.. he did jazz hands and later another hand to somebody.. they were all told to dress up, and they went off to a Vegas setup in the backyard for a couple hours
I think it was a food comp but not sure - at any rate, most of them had ice cream afterward.. it was a luxury comp too, with a high rollers trip to Vegas I think, that nobody won? Also a movie prize for some of them - my guess is it'll be Drillbit Taylor with Owen Wilson, advertised on tonight's show
Update: Oops.. a ticket stub stuck in a mirror has me changing that prediction to the movie 21
Good night, Natalie
She wasn't broken or depressed or anything after Matt left - she held up well, getting feisty with Adam & Ryan, working on/being worked on by both Chelsia & Sheila, and back to her usual chatty self after their comp.. I think she won something but not sure - sorry to be so vague, but this group is very bad about letting on what happens behind the trivia
She looked very small all alone in that bed
The Four swapped beds for some reason: Joshuah went with Chelsia and James with Sharon (as if anyone doesn't know who's with whom).. James followed Chelsia to the bathroom later and she asked him if he owns Bar 107? He said "No, but there is something".. naturally she perked on that and pushed for more.. he said it's big but it'll wait til they're out.. she pushed some more, and he said something about sex with guys, "plus another piece to it".. obviously she won't settle for that so I suspect that will all be coming out in its entirety soon, at least to her.. as far as whether she'll run away in horror, she did say once that she thinks "guys making out with guys is hot" - he wasn't just making out though

Daily ratings - Who saw this coming? edition
VTE = Voted to evict
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Wednesday's show featured a rare HOH tiebreaker, but all the drama that such things should have fizzled. The 3-3 tie was carefully constructed so James could make a nasty speech to evict Matt, but he either chickened out or was directed to merely say the words on the script. Either way it came and went, and the HOH comp that followed was a much more surprising event with a flabbergasting finish. James has been mentioning that old BB standby 'true colors' a lot lately, and he showed his when he laughed in Diary about Matt's crying and then deflected Julie's question about giving his word by telling her what the backdoor means.. umm, I think she's picked up on that by now. Natalie in turn called out James for being hypocritical, while the rest of them laid low as usual. The show continues to make Sheila appear logical and stable somehow. We didn't get an HOH interview again because that time went to showing us Daniele's car. When Dick dreamed of being a guest feature on a BB live show, I have a feeling he didn't think it would revolve around Barry Manilow, but that's show biz. I thought Matt did a good exit interview, but leave it to him to go out on a rumor rocket: the calls & letters will pour in now asking about Natalie being an NFL cheerleader.
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Paired with Sheila
Kudos to him for pulling off this one, although I think he was as surprised as anyone. It's hard to tell what he'll do or what kind of handle he has on everything. He seemed to go along with whoever he talked to tonight, but Sheila didn't have her appointment yet. I didn't see his room debut but I think he got baby food? Extra ups for not letting Sheila have some of his HOH beer.
Paired with James
She's worried now and ratting out James and the rest of her alliance, which is probably just as well since they're ratting her out too. She earned the Line of the Day award (I Can't Believe She Said That subcategory) when they were talking about what they'd like for dinner. I quote: 'If we got chicken wings, I'd come in my panties.' Yep, she said it.
Paired with Chelsia
VTE Matt (HOH tiebreaker)
All good things come to an end and cockiness always crashes down eventually. He seemed kinda mopey tonight once the adrenalin of breaking the tie wore off, but he didn't live up to his threats to make a big deal of it anymore than he lived up to his threats of writing a juicy HOH blog: it's merely hateful. He play-acts at being a rebel but he's always obedient about covering up his more offensive tats with bandaids, and when Julie told him to 'stand and face the nominees' he did exactly as instructed. He's nervousing now, as he should be, and being bitchy about it, as they always are. He almost let his film career secret slip to Chelsia but not quite: it'll come.
Paired with Neil Sharon
He built up our hopes and then let them crumble into slop dust. Diary reined him in when it came to attacking Sheila's son as he's a minor, and naturally they didn't want him to cause them any more cussing fines or lost viewers, but that left us with a big windup to nothing. He & Sheila even sat down together and played nice-nice for a minute, but only because they both probably think they're high on the hit list. His negative is neutralized though for the show he put on sucking up to Adam with gems like 'You want somewhat of a dramatic surprise' as if they were planning a red carpet entrance.
Paired with Matt
She held up well after losing Matt and even made him get a little misty in Julie's boudoir with her goodbye. She's almost guaranteed to be safe this week (unless Adam finds a secret stash of percoset or otherwise wigs out completely) and that's good for all of us. Without her in there, the habitat would become a morgue. Anyway, she still has more portraits to do.
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
No vote (nominee)
His 'running out of fresh material' for nominee speeches was classic and he's been a great sport about being a permanent fixture on the block. He'll finally get a week off now and a chance to relax, which he's earned more than anyone. It was funny to see him hanging out after the show with two of the three people who voted him out, but that's Ryan. I'm very unclear about the food comp situation, but I'd kinda like to see him on slop: he'd probably pack away about 40 protein shakes a day and add another 8 or 10 lbs.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
She's sleeping with James tonight: talk about strange bedfellows. Once again, I'm grateful she won't have much to laugh about this week. Now if we can only get her to stop screeching at the guinea pigs, nobody will have to call PETA about her.
Paired with Adam
She toned down her act somewhat tonight: she still talked way too much but she wasn't shouting and her eyes weren't popping out.. that'll probably return tomorrow when she has her chat with Adam. She'd be his safest nom but not his smartest, and at least now we know to be prepared for the same reaction from her whether she goes on the block or not.
Paired with Natalie
America's Playa came on strong, prepared to showmance his way through all the girls and into the money. That didn't work out but he was fun to have around and he usually kept things light amid the chaos. He brought BJs to the feeds and made Bibles fun in there. Despite the fact that he's a pig, he has some good qualities too and he kinda grows on you.
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.
