April 16, 2008 - Day 69 (or 70)
>> Natalie evicted 2-1 (Sheila broke the tie) - Ryan is Head of Household <<
So long, Natalie|
Even in sleep, she was provocative
Natalie's one of those very rare hamster breeds: a true original.. she fell for Matt and acted the ditz, but she also showed she wasn't as dumb as she seemed.. she also set off some of the raciest episodes ever on the feeds that will likely never be topped
She had no shame when it came to giving up personal details, but she was the cheeriest hamster ever, brightening up even the most horrific days & nights in there with her sunny outlook, making the few times she was down hard to watch
She preached too much, she yapped to much, and she lied with the best of them but when called out, she admitted it - which is more than the other four did, and they were lying and double-dealing as much or more.. they still are
She had numbers theories and study aids created with nail polish, which she also used to draw portraits of some of them.. they might not be great works of art, but for nail polish on paper towels, they're pretty amazing
It was fascinating and fun watching her work.. she came up with other things to do too, like the best hide & seek game we've ever had on the feeds
When she got watercolors she really went to town, and the best seat in the house was watching over her shoulder as she created her flowers and mermaids.. click to see more of Natalie's artwork
She cooked for them all most nights and she didn't demand thanks or credit - and she didn't get either very often.. despite her constant chatter, she rarely complained much about anything.. she was a lot of fun in there most of the time, and she'll be missed
The last HOH room debut
They generally lock it up for the Final 3, so this was probably the last call for the season
It was a whole lot quieter than these things used to be, but most of them seemed happy for Ryan to get his stuff - understandably so, since he's got deals with each of them
His letter was from Jen, which made a change.. she said she's still glued to the feeds (and likely checking out the sites: hey Jen!).. he also got a big selection of snack refills, and socks
"A pre-existing relationship still in the house"
It's not a difficult phrase to understand, but they took it everywhere else
Between wild leaps and random assumptions, Sharon found a new slug to play with.. she asked Sheila to watch it for her when she was called to Diary, and when she came back, it was gone.. luckily for all(?) they found it again, hiding under Sheila
Then it was back to guessing games, cousins twice removed and hamsters long since removed, all to no avail.. Adam won a chess game and Ryan broke one of the pieces thwacking at them.. Sharon pressed some garlic again and actually made her own salad (well, she opened a bag of salad).. Sheila prepared fish
Ryan moved his stuff upstairs again, and the relationship guessing went on and on.. not to worry: Sheila wasn't swearing to anything here.. every scenario revolved around Sheila, and she ended the night thinking she'd either evicted her cousin Natalie, or that James was her half brother.. Sharon was probably too tired from pouring 1,000 Island to add 2 + 2 when she gave the BEEBIES a snack
Later Sharon sneaked up to shmooze at Ryan for awhile.. there's one fewer of them, but not much else has changed
Final Four parannoy about "pre-existing relationships" is posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Final Four edition
VTE = Voted to evict
Ratings are based on entertainment value, and it's leaking away fast
Wednesday's show had a logical, linear storyline for a change - for those just watching CBS anyway. For the rest of us, it was highly over-simplified and way too easy if you ask me. Natalie wasn't the only one double-dealing in there but she came across looking like scum, while Sheila was portrayed as a little bitter & vindictive but as if she had every right to be. Once again, none of Sheila's vicious, vile trashtalk hit the airwaves for some peculiar reason.. well, we know what the reason is but we can't fight it. If there had been any doubt as to the voting, Julie's questions gave more anti-Natalie ammo to seal her fate, and it was just too sad to see the one hamster who was almost always cheerful in there have to go out in tears because of the cowards who remained inside, but that's how it goes. I'm all for the trick BEEBIES question, as it smacked of what Big Brother should be about all the time: messing with their pointy little heads. I can't say it enough: I'd rather have three months of that stuff than three months of relatively nice, normal people turn into flesh-eating monsters. By the way, dear producers, don't think I missed you calling the BEEBIES cage a 'habitat' nor Julie saying everyone was 'neutral'.. I'm on to you guys.
Paired with Sheila
I'm glad he & Ryan decided to make Sheila break the tie, but I'm sure Natalie's shocked face and 'Why did you do this?' will stick with him for awhile.
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Ups for another HOH win and for the little bit of joy we saw today when he read his letter. He's going to have a busy week juggling his three deals: Sharon already went to work on him, and she sounded just like Sheila with her excited, threatening tone. As usual, Ryan mostly nodded and said 'Yep, uh-huh, yep.'
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
No vote (nominee)
It's wonderful to know that she knows now that Jacob came in dead last in the Revive-a-Hamster voting hoax. It did her no harm to have James come back, but she was so sure viewers would vote Jacob back in to mess her up, and now she knows viewers couldn't care less: she's barely noticed in there. Even if she thought the trick question was about the BEEBIES, I have a feeling she wouldn't share the info with her roomies.. that's how she is.
Paired with Adam
VTE Natalie (HOH tiebreaker)
Yew know whut? Julie didn't say there's a relationship involving Sheila still in the house! Know this: she needs to stop making every frikkin thing revolve around her. Yew know whut I mean?
Paired with Matt
Party girl deluxe who did things no hamster ever has or probably ever will again. She stripped, suds'd, slurped and grinded her way into many feedsters' hearts (and a few other places), all the while being cheery, fun, and unbelievably candid. Later she toned it down and talked & preached too much, but she's easily the Star of the Season and Most Photogenic. She'll also be remembered for kooky kneesocks, nail polish paintings, and homemade dairy products.
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!

Ryan is Head of Household
Nobody is nominated
Nominations on Thursday
My best guess:
Sunday, April 20 at 8pm: nominations, assorted dramas & filler
Tuesday, April 22 at 9pm: final veto comp, eviction, and the start of the Final 3 HOH comp - probably endurance
Wednesday, April 23 at 8pm: HOH comp Part 2 (taped earlier in the day?), and Part 3 Q&A live, with final eviction
Sunday, April 27 at 8pm: Finale will include jury questioning, evictees & jury check-ins, and voting for & announcing the winner
Wednesday's eviction show remained in fourth place with a 4.1 rating and 7 share, behind Democrat political debates on ABC with 7.3/12, 'Deal or No Deal' on NBC with 6.0/10, and 'Til Death' (3.9/7) and 'Back to You' (4.5/7) on Fox.
There are just four shows left
As HOH of the Final 4, Ryan can also 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
BB10 premieres Sunday, July 13

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.
