March 28, 2008 - Day 50 (or 51)
>> Natalie is Head of Household - James & Joshuah are nominated - James won veto <<
Sheila's Big Give|
She found a new victim for her 45 years old/single mom/writing a book loop, and yacked at Sharon about it all as they waited and waited for the veto comp, along with endless replays of last night's attack by James
Sharon started a new thread about religion and her body is a temple, but Sheila took back the convo, talking about charity and how the winnings could build new houses in New Orleans, and how her book will educate young women, adding "I'm doing what Oprah's doing" - I doubt if any of them can top that today
She also told Natalie she'd go up as a replacement nom if needed - easy for her to say now.. we'll see if she sticks with it, if it comes to that
BB kept them waiting til mid-afternoon to start the veto comp, making them antsy and grouchy.. the nominees played checkers.. Natalie escaped Sheila awhile to do some nail polish art.. Ryan washed some dishes: maybe they were his, or maybe he was just trying to get close to some real food
He did it again
Three vetos in a row might be a new record
It sounds like the comp included math guesses about how many ounces in a giant martini, lines on a veto symbol, et cetera, plus poker-style holds or folds.. James did a Friday Night Fever happy dance when nobody was looking, and some manic giggles.. he and Sheila even had a day-after hug.. he told her to keep trashing him
Joshuah went right to Natalie and told her to put up Sharon, and tie-break her out if needed.. Natalie agreed, although Natalie agrees to most anything at first
I don't know if Joshuah's suddenly non-gloomy expression coming out of HOH is what set off Sharon or if she's sad about losing him, but she started crying into her slop.. she sat there a few minutes and then jumped up with a shriek that sounded like Flipper caught in a net, and ran off to sob in the toilet
Sheila joined her in there to commiserate, like she does.. meanwhile Joshuah has attached himself to James like velcro, and neither is feeling any pain anymore
These game-intensive days are tedious and hard to follow
There were a couple tangents along the way though, including most of them trying to flag down a passing helicopter.. Joshuah made props and assembled a costume for a drill team routine - early risers may get to see it
In more important matters, Adam & Natalie made a feast of steak and mac 'n cheese.. it was downright sad to see Ryan sitting across the room from them, eating his slop
Joshuah brought us back to the matters at hand though, by playing pool with Adam & Ryan (a first).. he told them they'd be the next nominees if they don't get on board his Save Joshuah campaign
Back to our program
A new Girl Power alliance formed upstairs, under the guidance of Natalie
Sharon found out exactly how many busses Joshuah's been driving over her, and Natalie explained all once again.. they decided they'd kick Joshuah on the sly, with Natalie to tie-break him out if needed
Naturally, Sheila was the most animated, and shocked at the amount of info Natalie was dishing up
It's all very confusing at this point: waffles deluxe.. Diary even called in Natalie for a late session, likely to find out exactly what she's doing and who she's really with so they can come up with an edit for Sunday's show that doesn't fizzle if/when she does more turnabouts later
It's a very good day to check out Aldav/DogDave who pulled out all the stops for a very special Friday extravaganza
The OB Incident
Beavis & Butthead were in the habitat again tonight
I'm not going to go into the graphic detail, but suffice to say it was one of the funniest pranks ever on the feeds
Or maybe they've just lowered our standards after nearly two months.. download the videos and decide for yourself
Chat about the veto comp; James does a victory dance and hugs Sheila; Joshuah tells Natalie to put up Sharon; and the OB Incident in three parts are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Waffles à la James edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Wednesday's show was an odder mix than usual. They made James & Chelsia's raunchy thing look like innocent puppy love, and her rabid rage over the eggs & bunny looked almost cute. You have to wonder why Matt's nomination tears became a comedy bit while Chelsia's got the tinkly piano, but all that misleading buildup made her ugly exit comments come across that much uglier. James called her a 'huge raging bitch' but then came back with a sappy farewell to secure him a jury vote (and it looked like it worked: Chelsia got misty watching it and apparently forgot she'd just seen him celebrating her demise.) Adam's backstory and family were good to see, especially the flying subtitles, but Julie's baby food cracks fell flat. Maybe they were a coded message from home? That's my theory anyway. The HOH comp was a good one and it was nice to let us have some input, but they really should have included some of the meatier questions along with the fluff, especially which one of them do we find most trustworthy. That would have ruffled a few feathers in there.
Paired with Sheila
He's a nutjob, and the perfect Beavis to Ryan's Butthead. Together they'll decide who goes to Paradise™ and everyone's courting their votes, but they prove over and over that there are more important things to take care of in there, such as their late night OB Incident.
Paired with Chelsia
NOMINATED - HOLDS VETO
I'd just as soon see him gone but I have to give him credit for winning three vetos in a row so ups for that, and for pouring a huge bucket of water onto one of the lawn chairs. I don't think he's aware of how much waffling's going on around him, but he's still whining about the whole house being against him. If he'd stop that for awhile, stop sleeping all day, and hang around like a citizen they might forget about him by next week: the rest of them are very busy making new enemies amongst themselves.
Paired with Neil Sharon
He really needs to diva it up here and stop being so smugly confident that he's safe. Making a drill team flag out of a towel was a start, but he didn't give a show with it so no credit there. Puking over the OB Incident was pretty good though, especially while wearing his towel hiked up like a girl.
Paired with Matt
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
She's got everyone going and everyone guessing, and she seems to know what she's doing about all of it! I don't have a clue where she really stands but I'm impressed with her double agenting and I think she's looking good to go the distance, or at least another week. I didn't hear her preach a lot today either, and that definitely helps.
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
See Adam, with the addition that I don't think he's snuck anything to eat yet.. not that he wouldn't like to.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
Another near nom, another boo hoo-er. I may never get over the shriek she made in her transition from table crying to toilet crying. She got an earful from Natalie & Sheila about her love interest Joshuah, and she pretty much ignored him when she went to bed. She had a Runner-up Line of the Day with 'People are still here who are cocky and win shit'.. well Sharon, if you don't like it, start winning shit of your own.
Paired with Adam
Her range of expressions during Girl Power Hour was priceless, more so than usual. I realized I don't need her to cut off her endless repetitive rants anymore as I've learned how to shut her out. She can go on & on and I just don't hear her.. it's a real relief, and no worries about missing anything 'important': it'll come up again. And again. And again. She had a rough night, with Adam breaking in on her Diary on top of the OB Incident. She wrongly accused Joshuah of that, but he was the one puking about it.
Won: $21,000 Vegas trip
Paired with James
Sometimes a spitfire who gave us good fights & fireworks but she laid around with James way too much, which was her undoing and ours. She'll be remembered for feedmasters' attempts to protect her, strip/lap dance/makeout night, having sex, raunchy stories, a colorful vocabulary, getting smashed, smashing everyone's Easter eggs, and for going out with the nasty speeches they all threaten but rarely follow through with.
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.
