April 7 & 8, 2008 - Days 60 & 61 (or 61 & 62)
>> Adam is Head of Household - Sharon & James are nominated <<
Tuesday 4/8: Party preparations|
While Adam & Natalie decorated for their luau, rescheduled for later today, James smuggled a package of flour out of the pantry/conference room for antiquing Natalie later
Sharon's back to cackling whenever James says what he's going to do to Natalie or otherwise trashes her, the same way her hyena screech came out whenever Joshuah went after one of his female victims.. Sharon never fights her own battles, but she takes joy when somebody else gets nasty.. she seems to have a real mean streak like that without ever getting much blood on her own hands, much like BB6 Maggie
James said Diary told him he shouldn't wear his undies & Chelsia's robe to Julie's boudoir, and since he's not really the revolutionary bad boy he likes to think he is, he won't.. he resents it though, and he's mimicking the Diary people now as much as he is Natalie & Sheila - much to Sharon's delight
He started his day of fun by making a splash as they were all laying out in the sun: he came out, stripped down and laid down next to Natalie.. that got everyone's attention, and then encouraged by Adam, he started masturbating
Sheila said he needs a trim, and joked to Ryan about her own needed-a-trim Penthouse days.. James made some comments to Natalie, she called him ugly, and said she's ready to ask Diary for a restraining order, that she's feeling sexually harassed
Ryan's an early Line of the Day award winner for "Don't touch me with that thing".. James did touch Sharon with it, rubbing all over her after dissing the haircut Sheila gave her.. he was called to Diary, went in nekkid, and later reported "I can't rub my dick on you.. I have to respect your personal space, and I can't masturbate - they said do that on your own.. I think Natalie went in and.." cut to flames.. the camera came out, and while Natalie was inside, James took a roll call about her: "Can we agree she's working with everyone out here? She's working with you, right? And you, and you?" All said yes
Sorry about the fuzzy quads shot of the rubbing - but it's probably better that way
Adam told Natalie he was putting her on camera strike: "Everyone says you're a camera whore".. Ryan found a chef's hat and luau grilling proceeded without incident, but the good news is the ants are back
Worn out from his exertions, James took a break
Later he had a long Trash Natalie Campaign session in HOH with Adam & Sheila while downstairs napped
Between naps, Natalie & Adam read dental dam packages, Ryan ate pizza, and Sharon did whatever it is Sharon does
Tuesday's CBS edit must be completed as most of them got to grooming and appearance changing
Natalie cut Adam's & Ryan's hair, per their specifications, and both were pleased with the results.. Ryan asked her to Nair his back, and she made a fresco out of it
Afterwards he had more neck problems: this time it was raw and red.. they blamed the Nair (and Natalie) but you'll note from the caps that a) it was already red from the buzz clippers, and b) the Nair wasn't up that high for long.. someone asked who did it and Sheila contributed a dig, like she does, with "Who do you think?" before working on her own whiskers problem, without Nair
Much later, James made a "you owe me" pitch to Ryan, going back to the tie vote when Matt was evicted.. Ryan got riled and went into his "fuckn fuckn fuckn" loop.. James got riled and said "Shut the fuck up".. Sheila was present and got riled when her name was brought up regarding that week.. she then yapped it up with Natalie & Ryan awhile, then James yapped it up with Sheila awhile - with hugs, Ryan had another round with James for awhile, and it's waffling all around into the night
They were on inside lockdown since afternoon, which means another pricey comp apparatus is probably going up outside
Tuesday: James gets nekkid; James starts masturbating in the backyard; and James versus Ryan are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Monday 4/7: Make it stop
We've had some hamsters in the past that were hard to listen to, but we're reaching an all-time low lately
They were going to have a luau today: an activity idea they actually thought up themselves! or maybe Diary suggested it to save us feedsters, but it didn't happen.. instead, it's status quo for daylight in there: Ryan & James sleeping, Adam AWOL, and Sharon, Sheila & Natalie running their loops as they over-develop their tans and skin cancer some more
If I have to listen much more to Sharon screech her Jacob resentment stories, or Sheila rant her single mom/writing a book/IMDB resume, or Natalie proclaim Jesus is running BB9, I'm going to have to jab both my ears with an icepick.. I try to keep it light here but jeesh! Enough's enough
James is working them all against Natalie, and claims he'll terrorize her tomorrow.. Diary gave Ryan some valium, after he slept all day.. that's all I've got today - these six are worse than most final twos
Monday: James pushes Sharon to attack Natalie is posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Is it over yet? double-duty edition
Ratings are what they are and/or a load of slop
On Tuesday's episode of 'The James Zinkand Show' we heard James whine 'People don't know who I am' just a couple hours after he'd displayed all that he is on the feeds, rubbed it, and then rubbed it on Sharon.. everyone has a pretty good idea who he is. In another 'interesting' edit we saw the Wacky Old Lady blow up over her nomination, when in reality the Pizza Dude extra was more irate - but they haven't developed his character all that much so I guess that's understandable. The tinkly piano gave way to a violin concerto with the poor nominees consoling each other but for most of this show, the blankie-toting, mouth chewing blonde extra was just that: an extra. Sure, she might be nominated again, but she's mostly insignificant in the editors' eyes as usual. Brief interludes for 'OTEV the Great & Powerful Rhyming Rain God', a rerun of The Dolly Wars of BB7 but unfortunately missing the dollies and the harm, and the Wacky Old Lady cleaned up the habitat between rants and tears, and then we ended up back with James who now claims to be glad that everyone's against him, that it's a compliment or something, along with a cryptic remark that he gave Ryan 'the opportunity to play in this game'. By next week we may be back to our usual 'Big Brother 9' programming.
Paired with Sheila
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
He's on cruise control and seems happy as a pig in mud that everyone else continues to battle around him.
Paired with Chelsia
He brings up some valid points in his 11th hour campaigns, but he really needs to work on his presentation. It's interesting that he woo'd Sharon all week and kept her shrieking and not campaigning, which is the same thing she did to Alex and Joshuah. And like Joshuah, James betrayed her and went campaigning his brains out at the last minute, possibly successfully? Probably not, but his game is a lot like BB8 Eric's and he was unexpectedly saved at the last minute.
Paired with Matt
She's the trashing target du jour for everyone, thanks to James and his smear campaign, and she's holding up well again. It's ironic that they keep railing on how dumb she is, when she keeps outsmarting them - up til now anyway. She gave haircuts and removed back hair per specifications, and everyone was pleased with the results. Except Ryan's troublesome neck.
Jen's boyfriend Paired with Allison
They just won't leave this guy alone with his pizza anymore. First he got the whole habitat involved in his back hair, then he got yet another neck ailment, then he moaned about it like he had the bug bite - this time Diary dosed him with Benadryl. Then James got in his face and got him all riled up to where he was saying 'fuckn' every other word, like he does when he gets riled.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
Paired with Adam
'Frikkin frikkin frikkin frikkin frikkin.'
Paired with Neil Sharon
He put on costumes and breakfast shows, and did hot tub monologues, praying & sobbing aloud. He exploded viciously on Amanda & Allison, and about Sheila & Natalie (usually focused on genitalia), but he left the guys alone except James, who he c-blocked & puppy-dogged. He had lots of schemes to save himself but used them up early, and his huge drama potential fell short when we needed it most. He had the only Diary restraining order I know of: 5 feet away from Allison.
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!

Wednesday, April 9 at 8pm: live eviction (maybe two?), HOH comp, assorted dramas
Westies can watch the air show live when it's on in the East at www.watch.videobrother.com or www.liveeastcoastfeed.org
Tuesday's show dropped back to fourth with a 3.6 rating and 5 share, behind 'Dancing With the Stars' on ABC with 11.4/17, 'Hell's Kitchen' with 7.0/11, and 'The Biggest Loser' on NBC with 6.1/9.
Nobody's on slop
If there is a double eviction or 'fast forward' it will probably be this week.
They didn't show the jury house last summer til the night Jameka (4th place) was evicted and the final HOH comp started. Why so late? It's in the US, probably Palm Springs area, and its location will be figured out as soon as it airs.
The HOH of the Final 4 can participate in the following HOH comp.
That Final 3 HOH comp is in three parts. The first is an intense endurance. The two who don't win that compete in Part 2. The winners of Part 1 and Part 2 then compete in Part 3 for the HOH title. Whoever wins it just evicts someone (no noms or votes), therefore choosing who they'll go up against for the jury vote to decide the winner.
Finale is probably Sunday, April 27
First place earns $500k, second gets $50k. The others earn $750 a week, including jury sequester weeks for those that go there
BIG BROTHER 10
If you'd like to see REAL Big Brother this summer like all other countries do it, where we decide evictions and select a winner from a diverse cast, write to your local CBS station and demand it! They'll get the word to those that need to hear it.

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.
