April 11, 2008 - Day 64 (or 65)
>> Sheila is Head of Household - Adam & Sharon are nominated - Adam holds veto <<
Kanye at the crack o' noon|
Actually their wakeup music came closer to 2pm
Adam had had trouble sleeping after his pre-dawn triumph and slammed a beer in the pantry/conference room to knock him out, but he remained restless
They were sent outside immediately after getting up for the real BEEBIES caretakers to do their thing.. talk of Sheila's birthday led to alcohol chat: Ryan talked about Jen's DUI and how she blacks out sometimes.. Sheila said she's had a vodka problem in the past.. she also made a big deal about Sharon being a non-drinker, but she's been begging BB for strawberry daiquiris lately
Ryan complained about this & that including a bug landing on him, but mostly all were happy and chatty except Natalie, who was uncharacteristically quiet, and isolated.. she told Adam she'd lost her voice yelling last night, adding "I'm gonna have to be real quiet".. Sharon remains glued to Sheila
After the lockdown, Natalie went back outside and the others set in trashing her again in earnest, led by Sheila.. Adam wasn't as nasty as her or Sharon, but he did say "I'm throwing her out of the group"
The feeds went down and were replaced with a Big Brother 8 logo and "temporarily unavailable" message - not surprising, since BB8 ended almost 7 months ago.. that gives us a chance to review a few things though
Sheila's latest anti-Natalie loops are particularly interesting: she's been talking a lot about seeing Natalie laugh when Julie showed her the antiquing tape, but Natalie got some flour too.. Natalie smiled in the clip Sheila saw, but not before saying "They said no flour, you guys!" - that was neatly edited out of the clip, along with Natalie's concern for the mics and asking "Who'd they get? They got me a little bit".. Adam & Ryan busted up both at the time and at the replay, and Sheila's new best friend Sharon sat next to her when they watched the clip, cracking up
Sheila put things into a different perspective also, one she may not have realized but one that falls under Things That Make You Go Hmmm, when she said "They show us things for a reason"
Sheila's also going on about how Natalie has never stuck up for her when she's been targeted, which is true: none of them have stuck up for anyone else in this house of terror and that includes Sheila, who not only took ownership of all of Chelsia's parting shots, but laid low and silent when Chelsia destroyed Easter eggs, shouted about having sex with Matt, ranted about abortions, and wanted to squirt ketchup on Natalie for "the blood of your dead babies", along with all of James' stuff about her
Natalie's no saint, but she's not guilty of much that Sheila isn't: they're both part of the same team of four with Adam & Ryan, and both have been working on each of the guys; and they're both part of the girls' team with Sharon, and both have been working against Sharon for weeks.. all that's just survival
For her part, Sharon egged on both Joshuah & James to carry out their various pranks & tirades, then hid out while they took place, and cackled about them later.. and she's now saying Natalie's the biggest hypocrite she ever met? Look in the mirror, Sharon.. also, she's been referencing (among other things) Natalie not dropping out of her glass box the second Ryan did.. well, they had arranged not to go immediately after each other, so as to not look as obvious as Sharon did on that one
It's when the game gets to this stage where they feel they must villify someone before & after evicting them that I lose interest, but that's just personal taste (plus the 6-8 tries it takes to get a functional feed lately).. what I really don't understand is why they do so much trashing about hamsters they hope to get finals votes from, especially this season where everyone finds out what everyone else has been saying
Meanwhile, the feeds returned to Sheila & Ryan conspiring against Adam.. Ryan told her, "I have your back.. I don't care about anyone else"
Adam was in James' bed and Sharon in hers, both awake.. they may not have been able to hear what Ryan & Sheila were saying, but as with all hamsters of all time, it's easy to tell when conspiring is going on, as previously loud voices suddenly drop to whispers
The grill flared up at Natalie as she barbecued chicken for them all.. trying to warn her, maybe
Adam greeted her & her plate of chicken in his special way.. one of the guys fetched Sharon when it was dishing-up time.. dinner itself was peculiar: Natalie tried to keep up a cheerful convo like she does, but she was a lot quieter than usual.. Sheila kept making subtle little digs at & about her, and she kept complimenting Ryan about how good the chicken was
Afterwards they brought the Q&A cards out again, with wine, and had a very civilized game of it, much different than before: they all took turns, waited for each answer, and sipped their wine daintily.. the game inched towards truth or dare but didn't get there.. Sheila's little digs continued.. oddly, Sharon's hair was down for dinner and afters - something that only happens when she knows she's going on CBS
Natalie went to Diary, and Sheila & Sharon went upstairs to begin the hatefest over again.. they bashed & trashed Natalie and cussed up a storm.. they also said how much they hate people who are nice to your face, but talk about you behind your back.. Sheila spilled her wine
Then Sheila was called to Diary, and came out all swaggery, making me think they're encouraging and/or condoning this stuff.. personally, I had enough of it during BB6 to last a lifetime.. Natalie hung out with Adam & Ryan while Sheila & Sharon continued to sling bile.. the guys kept trying to get to Natalie, but their sex & gross-out chat has never bothered her
Sharon went to bed, and Sheila hung out with the others awhile.. Natalie went in and Sheila asked for confirmation once again that the guys are going to vote out Natalie.. Adam played with that a bit, riling Sheila which riled Ryan.. when Sheila went inside, Adam said they'd keep saying they're voting out Natalie until Sunday, and then they'd line everyone up and find out who the mole really is

Daily ratings - OD'd on bile edition
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
NOMINATED - HOLDS VETO
He's still on a high from his save last night, and today he was pulling everyone's chain and loving every minute of it. He topped even himself when he tried to get both Natalie and Sheila to touch his foreskin and then later swore on it. He might have a clue that his two conniving buddies Ryan & Sheila are also conniving together against him, but he might not. Extra ups for making 'Best Week Ever' for a second time! See today's sidebar for the quote.
Paired with Matt
She totally knows what's up although she might not know the extent of it, and I'm sure she doesn't realize how vicious Sheila & Sharon are being about her. As always though, she stays upbeat and perky through it all, if a bit quieter than usual today. It's feeling like a showdown between her & Sheila might be building, but it's a long time til Sunday and even longer til Wednesday.
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
I'm still a little creeped out by how hot he keeps saying Sheila's 80s pics are and how he wants to jerk off to them, combined with he & Sheila agreeing that Sheila looks a bit like Ryan's mom.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
I'm done with her.
Paired with Adam
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
What's the point of being so vicious? Why not just say Natalie's a strong competitor and therefore a threat who must go? I'm really done with her.
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!

Sunday, April 13 at 8pm: HOH comp, nominations and assorted dramas
Wednesday's eviction show placed third with a 4.0 rating and 7 share, behind 'Idol Gives Back' on Fox with 9.9/16 and 'Deal or No Deal' on NBC with 6.1/10.
Confirmed: finale is Sunday, April 27
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.
First place earns $500k, second gets $50k. The others earn $750 a week, including jury sequester weeks for those that go there

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.
