April 9, 2008 - Day 62 (or 63)
>> James evicted 3-0 - Sheila is Head of Household <<
Another broken promise|
Not a promise to each other - those are only made to be broken - but another promise to us turned to vapor: instead of terrorizing Natalie all night, James rehearsed for the live show instead, taking his evictee place in the overnight twilight of the habitat
In the long waiting-around-for-Julie hours, he set his shoes on the counter (probably to upset Sheila) but she was busy discovering that the ants are now in the kitchen.. it took them awhile to arrive this season, but now they're in and it's all good
James also took Sharon around and pointed out missing items, telling her to memorize everything for a possible future comp.. she said "good lord" and went back to bed
James walked the plank on schedule, and didn't act out
The rest of them went up in their plexiglass cages, and when the feeds came on, Sharon was already off
Sheila & Natalie both appeared strong - Ryan was already suffering
Adam went to Diary (and to feed his face) just short of three hours - Sharon was inside too, and the three remaining cut a deal to let Sheila have it, and put up Adam & Sharon.. Ryan came off shortly after Adam came back outside, and Adam stopped smiling.. then Natalie came off, just before Showtime kicked in.. Sheila broke a tooth coming down
Penthouse in the penthouse
Sheila spent an unprecedented amount of time in Diary before taking them and us to see her room.. Adam, Ryan & Natalie goofed off while waiting and it was fun in there again for a minute.. Sharon actually washed dishes
They were all impressed by Sheila's Penthouse era pics, and son Mick as a little kid and current pics.. as previously arranged, Ryan read the letter from her son and sister aloud, as Sheila felt she'd cry too much to be able to do it
She was touched by it all and rightly so.. Natalie & Ryan were especially taken with the 80s pics.. earlier Natalie showed off the scrapage on her backside from the cage
She got some of her favorite merlot, and plotted against Natalie for awhile with Adam & Sharon.. later she plotted against Sharon with Ryan & Natalie.. status quo
HOH comp deals and Adam comes off; and Sheila's HOH room and letter are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Hamsters in glass habitats throwing stones edition
VTE = Voted to evict
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Wednesday saw the finale of 'The James Zinkand Show' and fortunately for all he went out quietly, and dressed. A few of the co-stars and extras started getting some more time as his came to an end. The Bikini Girl extra stepped it up to shine as the new Diary star and withstood the 'fat' and 'all she does is tan' snipes: the former by looking at her, and the latter by Wacky Old Lady and the blonde extra being seen tanning with her (like they do daily), after laughing at Bikini Girl about it. Even though the former star's cracks to & about her were whitewashed for CBS, even he left the impression that she's running things in there. The Pizza Dude had a nice comic segment, stuffing his face while in a serious convo, and I guess we can overlook wardrobe changes during what was supposedly a single fight, plus two-month-old boxing footage.
Viewer questions didn't bring much to the table but Adam did, getting in one 'dear' and one 'babe' for the boss's wife. Seeing the bitter jurors should be more fun than it's become in recent seasons, with the staged entrances and so forth, and honestly, do we really need to use up Paradise™ time watching them watching tv, especially when they're watching stuff we've seen already? Those segments could be so much better than they are, and by that I don't mean we need more of snippy Joshuah cracks. I'm a little concerned about Sharon's family: does her retired military dad haul out his uniform just for tv appearances, or does he wear it every day? Finally, what was the purpose of the smoke in the cage match, and what was it made of?? Each of the hangers-on had a headache at the end.
Paired with Sheila
No vote (HOH)
He was a decent cheerer-on'er from the ground but he could have done a lot better. His quota for fun is higher than most of them but he might lose some of that when he's nominated tomorrow.. let's hope not. He said something about that comp not being so hard.. easy for him to say.
Paired with Matt
Kudos for hanging up there three hours and why didn't she ever have a cam on her? She's equal parts plotter and plottee anymore, as are most of them, and that makes for interesting if confusing watching. We are due for the mixed-up faces morphomatic veto, and she's a shoe-in to win that one.
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
Kudos for hanging up there three hours, especially since he looked like he wasn't going to make it for three minutes. I think he surprised everyone by sticking, especially after his Long Week Of Troubles.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
No vote (nominee)
Six minutes?? Maybe it was a smart move to drop out, as next week's HOH comp is far more important than this one (to those that live to see it, anyway) but she could have put on a better show about it.
Paired with Adam
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Big ups for hanging up there three hours and winning one, even if it was handed to her, and even if it will screw her out of her chance for a secured spot in Final 3. But no matter: she won, she got her letter and pics, and her wine, and she's a happy camper for a change. Like Natalie, she's equal parts plotter and plottee, working with & against everyone all at once, which is a lot harder to pull off than it seems.
Revived a minute after his first eviction
Paired with Chelsia
Offline scandals kept popping up but CBS kept hyping him - damage control maybe. He pushed Chelsia til she did what she promised Daddy she wouldn't, but most of that was blocked. He cried when nobody liked him, he slept a lot, got nekkid a lot, masturbated a lot, and topped Cowboy's hat trick with his tuck. Like another James before him, he played all sides too soon and too eagerly, and it came back to bite him. Click for his adult material.
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!

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

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.
