April 13, 2008 - Day 66 (or 67)
>> Sheila is Head of Household - Sharon & Natalie are nominated <<
Natalie goes up|
Adam veto'd himself off the block and Sheila put up Natalie, as planned.. Natalie may not know the full extent of the plotting against her, or maybe she was testing Adam after the meeting.. if so, he didn't do so well:
Adam: Are you nervous on the block?
Natalie: Uh-huh, I don't like it
Adam: It sucks
Natalie: Next week will be piece of cake, easy week
Natalie: I know it'll be good, as long as we stick to the plan with Sheila next
Adam & Ryan haven't held their mole hunting summit meeting yet - maybe later today or tonight - if it happens, it'll be big.. meanwhile Adam was tracking down Bible quotes to use, and looked up the lesson of the day to find: "Beware of hypocrisy" and "All will be revealed".. he thought that might mean a lot - but he was looking at April 14
Adam's on his last pack of cigs and is rationing carefully.. Sharon's been calling herself Hoops lately
Change of agenda
The meeting was meant for the guys to call out all the girls to find out for sure who to vote for, and who's telling the most tales to them.. Adam & Ryan said they'd wait til after they eat so as not to spoil dinner, but they called things to order early, when Natalie was touching up her highlights
They moved everyone to the bathroom and set in: Adam & Ryan dressed up a bit as threatened, and all the girls wondered what was going on
As it turned out, all the questions & accusations were directed toward Natalie, and most of it was led by Ryan rather than Adam as planned - maybe Ryan was afraid some of his own secret squirrel stuff would come out so he took over.. Sheila & Sharon stayed mostly quiet - both looked scared
When it was over, Sheila met up with Adam & Ryan to cement her good standing with them, and then the boys returned to Natalie.. later Adam said he felt bad for her
Natalie: It's not just me, it's everybody doing this
Ryan: It seems to be you doing it the most
Ryan: We don't sit behind your back and throw you under the bus
Natalie: You guys know I've always been true to you
Ryan: Well, that's what we thought.. it's hard to believe when we hear all this other stuff
Natalie went back to her hair and Sharon went back to bed.. Adam & Ryan got to grilling and got flared at in a big way - they blamed Natalie for that too, and all four proceeded to eat without her.. I'm not sure what they cooked - it looked like tire treads
Ryan [earlier]: Has Sharon ever cooked? Can she cook?
Ryan [grilling]: That's where Natalie cooks all the fucking fish
Ryan: It's gonna blow up.. watch your face
Ryan: I'm gonna eat and take a nap, and then work out
Adam: I feel bad for Natty.. what are you gonna do? Fuck, it's a game
Tinfoil hats, again
Natalie carried on doing her hair.. it seemed like she was doing it to excess, maybe thinking about everything - or maybe just being thorough
Sharon walked by a couple times and did one or two for her before escaping again.. that was nice, considering Natalie did all of hers awhile back
Natalie kept fussing & fiddling & rearranging.. the rest of them were sleeping except Sheila, who went to Diary for another extended visit
Sheila talked to Natalie a bit about the meeting, feeling out Natalie about it.. later Natalie touched up Sharon's hair again in HOH.. Sharon kept up the pretense that she's leaving, and Sheila kept saying about the meeting "I don't know why they DID that!"
Natalie asks Adam for comfort & reassurance; and Adam/Ryan's house confrontation meeting are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Make it stop edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Sunday's show was another marvel of creative editing, beginning with the HOH comp that glossed over Ryan's sweating and Sheila's cracked tooth, but somehow found a camera on Natalie. From there, they once again overlooked Sheila's Penthouse days, sticking to generic 'former model', but luckily they managed to remind us 100 more times that Sheila is a mom for those who have forgotten. More Sheila WTF moments included 'I can't believe I won!' after Ryan & Natalie gave it to her, 'I've taken a lot of crap off this girl' (Natalie), and 'That was the hardest decision EVER' several times about the noms, even though she'd decided to dump Natalie long before, and easily. Adam & Sheila's massage session took place before James left, and the staged Q&A game of the other night was indeed a setup, for Sheila's dream sequence about a combo Dr. Will/Evel Dick perfect mate. They left out the one phrase they were all laughing about after the noms ('slim pickings') and I'm pretty sure they're using the same Diary footage for Sharon each show about her 'planning to do what I've always done: lay low, and keep my mouth shut'.. we're all well aware of her 'laying low' talents, but as far as keeping her mouth shut? We should be so lucky.
Paired with Sheila
His much anticipated meeting was a letdown since it didn't go at all where he advertised it would, and that may come back to bite him. I think he'll be shocked and hurt to discover Ryan's buddied up with everyone else while Adam's only got one side deal that I know of, with Sheila. Natalie gets slammed for using her Bible to play BB, but it's all good when it's Adam. He looked up the Bible passage for today before holding his meeting, but since he looked up the wrong date, I'm real curious what the actual message for today would have said.
Paired with Matt
It's still a long ways til Wednesday but I think she's given up, and today's summit meeting had to reinforce that since she was the only one to be interrogated. Watching her maneuver the foil into her hair was somewhat relaxing, in a bizarre 'we've been watching BB9 feeds too long' kinda way. It's real hard seeing her be so quiet lately.. sure, her chatter can get annoying, but her daily sunny disposition is a lot of what's kept this mess afloat this long.
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
He took over Adam's meeting in a big way and avoided asking any questions of Sheila or Sharon as planned, as that might have made his Final 2 agreements with each of them come out and blindside Adam. I believe Ryan's the first one of them to notice that Sharon eats just fine but never cooks.. and they're only two months in.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
She's trying to be all badass with her Hoops persona so I took that as an invitation to use the original Hoopz here as a reminder of what badass really means (in a reality tv setting, anyway). This 'good Christian' spent most of her day once again avoiding any exertions that might be beneficial to anyone else, lying, conniving, sleeping, and talking about the things Jacob needs to do to stay in good with her. Hmmm, I thought they were ex's and she was done with him?
Paired with Adam
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
After Adam & Ryan's meeting, she seems to be a bit scared and is now saying 'this week is gonna be hell' because Natalie knows what's up and is supposedly guilt-tripping her.. guilty conscience of her own perhaps? Nahh, silly me. Why they can't come out and tell Natalie she's a goner is beyond me, but that's BB American Style for you. I think she may have provided another primetime first by causing CBS to add subtitles that included 'frikkin' and by the way, did you know Sheila's a single mom?
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!

Sheila/Natalie showdown could still happen?
Tuesday, April 15 at 9pm: Veto comp, veto meeting, assorted dramas
Sunday's show placed second for the second time this season (thanks to a delayed '60 Minutes' lead-in again) with a 5.7 rating and 9 share, behind 'Desperate Housewives' on ABC with 10.1/15.
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.
