March 20, 2008 - Day 42 (or 43)
>> Adam is Head of Household - James & Chelsia are nominated <<
They got the middle sized table today, always a major milestone of a season.. SuperPass is calling them hamsters today, a term I don't think has ever been recognized officially before (I did not coin it, by the way).. they also say "new alliances are being formed" - I must have missed that part
Ryan is something of a chameleon in there sometimes.. today he adopted the stance of the new HOH while talking laundry
Natalie continued to explain it all, going into great detail to Adam about The Four and how they can't be trusted, especially Joshuah.. she stressed the importance of avenging Matt's demise - fortunately, I don't think she's wearing a tribute bandana yet.. Sheila's an early front-runner for another Line of the Day award, with "They didn't earn the numbers - we did"
Trivia came and went, and Adam nominated James & Chelsia.. obviously Joshuah suspects the backdoor for him, which may or may not be coming, depending on veto
James & Chelsia crowed about their noms and said they might as well sleep together again now, and be sexual to make everyone uncomfortable.. Chelsia said she refused a hug from Sheila at the noms.. Ryan gave her one afterward and James made it into a tv moment with an exaggerated clapboard motion
They joked(?) about plans to get back at the others, and how Chelsia could get Natalie's vote
James [to Chelsia]: Can we just start railing now? Just straight up fucking in front of people
Chelsia: Blow your load in the chocolate milk
James: Yea, since I can't put pubes in the mouthwash
Chelsia [planning what to say]: Natalie, if you send me there with Matty, I will fuck him
Sharon [to guinea pigs]: BEEBIES! BEEBIES! HI BEEBIES!
Chelsia showed off a bandaged toe: she's been talking about a half-on/half-off toenail for awhile
James told Adam & Natalie he'd "rubbed one out, into the sink" after masturbating with Chelsia - he might have been goofing on them.. for some reason, Team Pink seems to think this stuff will upset everyone - it isn't likely to have much effect Adam & Natalie
They drew names for the veto comp, making them suspicious that it might come along sooner than usual, and rightly so.. Ryan & Natalie will sit out this time.. whether by Diary suggestion or supernatural ability, Natalie's suspicious that BB8 Dick might show up for it, also rightly so.. Sheila keeps saying Dick would like her - not so right, according to him
Most of them nested or napped, including the guineas.. Natalie sat in her sauna and Sheila laid around outside it - you could see her wheels turning.. James & Chelsia weren't as jubilant as they were before.. the feedmasters panned between "dreadful dreams" and sleeping Joshuah
His work finished, Adam napped and we got to see his HOH stuff that was denied to feedsters last night, and without the usual hubbub.. a little pink fuzzy thing remained in the basket.. the table wasn't as pristine as during the usual unveilings - this is the lived-in look
I don't usually dwell on their pics but he's got some unusual ones: cute little doggies, a dapper Adam done up and posing like a game show host, and a trio wearing duct tape, or something
James & Chelsia made a deal and shook on it: he'll throw the POV for a BJ
She told him, Joshuah & Sharon that she'd said during auditions that she would perform sexual favors in the game, if needed.. then she said "Sorry, D" (her dad, Dennis)
James gave her a sensual massage, which fascinated Joshuah & Sharon in the next bed.. well, I say sensual but it had a lot of their usual poke 'n giggle kiddie stuff too
James got rather intimate about it, including licking her backside and then surfacing for a traditional kiss, resulting in cries of "Ewwww!".. Joshuah & Sharon joined in massaging, but it wasn't the same
Chelsia slips under the bus
James had a sauna session with Joshuah.. I hadn't realized they have matching undies
James pretty much trashed Chelsia and implied it's all for game
He ridiculed her for her raunchiness and having admitted she likes being slapped during sex, among other things.. Joshuah acted surprised about the slapping, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't the first time he'd heard it
Later James made a point of some slappy games and teasing in front of the others.. later, back in bed next to their supposed teamies and with Ryan visiting, he continued to make fun of her sexually.. it kind of sounded like it was in fun, but it had an edge.. Ryan got bit by one of the guinea pigs, and later he began to eat his own fist
They're all worked up: each of them was expecting a veto comp from 6pm on.. someone got a Diary call around midnight so they all got up and dressed again - for no reason.. they finally all went back to bed.. BB8 Dick was due to show up around 5am Saturday according to Housecalls, but I think he arrived around 7am Friday

Daily ratings - Special vernal equinox edition
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
I was ready to say good job on his noms, and thanks for the laughs for being a proper HOH with all the correct high 'n mighty attitudes, but then he had to go and blow a bunch of snot rockets in bed. Tissue? What's that?
Paired with James
She had a great line to Joshuah that was almost Line of the Day caliber: 'I think you have to try for [the veto].. we won't be mad if you don't use it.' Of course Joshuah's going to try for it, doh! He's the sitting duck in the replacement spot. As far as whether he uses it or not in the unlikely event he wins it, there's plenty of time to be 'not mad' later. The rumor that her family threatened a 'family emergency' after lap dance/pool orgy night to pull her out of there probably makes the most sense in explaining her blackout makeouts with James. They seem to have backed off a bit lately and we get to see the hormonally-challenged Pink Team in most of their goony, lusty glory.. bleah. Maybe Mr. & Mrs. Hart packed up and moved - no forwarding address.
Paired with Chelsia
He seems to be on a crude crusade to tarnish Chelsia's image so she'll get bounced instead of him, but maybe it's just James being James and Chelsia rising to the bait.. her image in there isn't exactly shiny bright now as far as wholesomeness. Either way, I don't think it will have much effect on this bunch: like all hamsters that have come before, the only thing that gets their attention is a personal affront, particularly one that comes between them and $500,000.
Paired with Neil Sharon
Getting Sharon to give him a dainty blue-crack massage because he was 'inspired' by watching James & Chelsia practically having sex was pretty sad, and showed how desperate he's getting. He seems to be biting on James's 'Chelsia's just a dirty slut' crusade. After she & James shared a chocolatey kiss, Joshuah said she looked like she 'just rimmed him and he had a stinky ass.' Hey, don't blame me! I just quote 'em.. blame Allison Grodner - she's the one who picked 'em.
Paired with Matt
I don't much mind her efforts to avenge, exalt and deify Matt (so long as she doesn't start wearing a tribute bandana), or her translating her Bible into BB-relevant meanings. I'm not at all crazy about her long whispery talks with Sheila, but I know how to work my volume control to take care of all those things. Even on a day that isn't Natalie-centric, she's highly valuable to feedsters for things like lapsing into 'uh huh' and 'mm-hmm' mode when Sheila's ranting at her, hiding from Sheila in the bathroom, and for saying to the mirror 'That's a wrinkle! Get away! Get away!'
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
Ups for making the sidebar tally once again, and for still being everyone's pal in there.. except the guinea pigs.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
Is it possible that screeching 'BEEBIES' in the unnatural register she screeches it is a guinea pig code that means sic 'em? She's the only one who feeds them and now she has them calling her 'Mom'.. I'm curious if there's anything in the rulebook about using the habitat pets to take out the competition. Also, I know it's hard between the blue crack fondling, the lip chewing, and the Neanderthal eating habits, but keep an eye on her. She made out with Jacob for 12 years and he was the first to go - yet she made it back in. Then she made out with Alex and now he's gone. Then she made out with Matt and he's gone too. Maybe there's nothing to it, but watch her. (Thanks to lam at Hamsterwatch Chat for the Attack Guineas and Kiss of Death theories!)
Paired with Adam
See Natalie, plus another item in the ever-growing file labeled 'Sheila: BB newbie or BB scholar?' Remember that she's said many times she's only seen parts of BB8, so how come today she started talking about BB3 Danielle having never won an HOH or veto, and winning $50k? And how did she know all about Roddy's backstory segment, plus his showmance with 'Kiki'? Yep, she said Kiki - not Chiara. And as long as we're going there, it's possible Sheila may have protested a bit too much about the tortuous wait for the veto comp that never came, possibly only pretending she doesn't know that they usually have a nighttime veto or two. Things that make you go hmmm.
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.
