April 20, 2008 - Day 73 (or 74)
>> Ryan is Head of Household - Sharon & Sheila are nominated - Ryan holds veto <<
Don't hurt him, Ryan|
They were shocked by the camera coming out early, and the blog computer, and farewells, and the news that they'd do a "live show" tomorrow that would include the veto meeting and eviction.. (actually it'll be a taped show pretending to be live)
They didn't take many pics this time, but as usual, they enjoyed the part about looking at themselves
Sheila posed for a couple but refused to take any with Adam, preferring to lay around by herself being dramatic while the other three finished snapping
Last night Adam & Ryan made a big stink about Diary being closed at 3am: Adam said his backup stash of cigs had been stolen (by James).. Sharon woke up and half heard about it.. today Adam repeated the story and got her to hunt all over for his backup pack (which doesn't exist - he's got 1½ cigs left).. later Sharon worked some more on her CSI audition portfolio
Since they're still locked down inside, we were all cheated out of slip 'n slide today.. mostly all they're doing is sitting around and laying around between naps, interrupted by occasional chess games and food.. the BEEBIES got into a little tug of war over a carrot - you'd think somebody would have noticed their family resemblance by now but no, BB finally told them they're sisters
Once in awhile Sheila stopped saying she wasn't going to speak to Adam or kiss his ass to wheedle and guilt-trip him some more.. Sharon keeps working on Ryan and getting him all perturbed, which in turn caused a little blowup between Ryan & Adam.. Adam still swears he's going to boot Sheila, but I'm not sure if I believe him.. he'd better, for our sanity
Give us a break
We went to flames, then trivia, and we returned to find them eating Chinese take-out together.. I think it was the first time they ate at the little table
They discussed the BEEBIES sisterhood a bit, but otherwise were uncharacteristically quiet.. it even felt a bit tense.. earlier Sharon had asked about dinner.. nobody answered by volunteering to cook for her, so she & Sheila ate ice cream, cookie dough and Cool Whip.. they still packed away some Chinese though
Afterwards they all four gathered in the guys' girly bedroom and reminisced - it felt very forced and phony, like when Dick & Daniele did the same for last summer's Best Of BB8 show.. Ryan found Adam's little fuzzy friend, and ate/drank some of his baby food

Daily ratings - Sister sister edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value, and there was none
Sunday's show was pretty much just an hour-long commercial for What Happens in Vegas. Hamster-wise, it seems like they're trying to manufacture a big feud between Adam & Ryan, and all I can say about that is if they have anything other than an Adam/Ryan final two, nobody's going to watch. Their excitement over the little table seemed like a re-do: from what I saw on the feeds, none of them were much interested in it. The bottle-breaking comp was done on 'The Amazing Race' and better, without the silly wigs or still more embedded movie ads. Adam's A-bot-o routine was good and almost as enjoyable as when it came across the feeds, but they're leaving out all the other comedy by Adam & Ryan, which is all the fun stuff we've got left, and some of it's great. The only other comedy in this show was Ryan said he'd 'pull the first key' - first of what? This show pretty much cemented my decision to skip the CBS version completely next season, other than the 2nd half of eviction shows.. I think the whole feeds experience will be a lot more enjoyable without the fictionalized version running alongside.
Paired with Sheila
He keeps swearing to Ryan that he'll boot Sheila and I hope he does, even though it'd probably be smarter for him to evict Sharon. I feel personally offended that he didn't get a chance to set up and play his slip 'n slide today as planned.
Won: $10,000, movie premiere,
Beverly Hills shopping spree
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD - HOLDS VETO
He keeps swearing to everyone that they're safe, but he seems most genuine when telling Adam. I hope that's reliable and that he keeps his noms the same. However, if Adam flips and boots Sharon after promising Ryan otherwise, Ryan's going to be really angry.
Won: Movie premiere, Beverly Hills shopping spree
Won & wasted: One slop pass
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
Both she and Sheila need to go, and the sooner the better. I can't listen to either anymore but if Sharon sticks for a couple days with the two guys, at least she'll stay relatively quiet. She did come up with her final Line of the Day award today with this naive gem: 'What's said in the Big Brother house, stays in the Big Brother house.'
Paired with Adam
Both she and Sharon need to go, and the sooner the better. I can't listen to either anymore but if Sheila sticks for a couple days with the two guys, most of us still trying to hang in there will give up and shut off the feeds.
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
Sharon & Sheila are nominated
Ryan holds veto
DICK & JANELLE CHAT
Live video chat on April 24 at 6pm PT only on SuperPass
They've been locked inside since Saturday afternoon.
They'll tape veto meeting & eviction on Monday with Julie, which will air on Tuesday and 'pretend' to be live.
According to Adam after Diary, HOH comp parts 1 & 2 will be Monday & Tuesday, with part 3 live on Wednesday. We could have a feeds blackout sometime in there.
Jury questions for the finalists will probably be Friday. That isn't on the feeds, but the fallout afterwards by the final two is often one of the most explosive events of the season.
My best guess:
Tuesday, April 22 at 9pm: final veto comp, eviction, and the start of the Final 3 HOH comp
Wednesday, April 23 at 8pm: HOH comp Part 2 (taped?), 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
Sunday's show was second for the timeslot with a 4.4 rating and 8 share, behind 'Oprah's Big Give' on ABC with 6.3/11.
There are just three 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 usually 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.
