April 21 & 22, 2008 - Days 74 & 75 (or 75 & 76)
>> Sharon evicted 1-0 by Adam - Ryan won Part 1 of final HOH comp - Adam won Part 2 <<
Tuesday 4/22: Celebrations, at last|
Adam beat Sheila in what sounds like a big hamster wheel apparatus for Part 2
The guys have a pact for Adam to throw the final Q&A comp tomorrow with Julie, and Ryan will boot Sheila in trade for Adam having booted Sharon.. Adam promised to take Ryan "if something goes awry" and he wins
They celebrated their Final Two victory (a bit prematurely) while Sheila was in Diary, and rehearsed their exit out the front door.. both of them figure Adam will win the jury vote, and Ryan said he's okay with that.. Sheila sounded resigned and okay with third place, but she's expecting Adam to take her to finals if he wins Part 3 - she might also be expecting Ryan to do the same
They carried on making jewelry, and the BEEBIES are doing just fine with their new keepers.. other than yesterday's and today's comps, they hadn't been outside since Saturday, but finally got locked out and grilled up dinner.. it was uneventful, Smackdown-wise
Update: Later they started saying the BEEBIES are depressed - I don't know how one diagnoses depression in rodents
They're all visible on the feeds now as they lay around.. they're all friendly too, and chatty at times.. the guys teased Sheila for awhile with sexual chat, like they do: Ryan poked fun at her Alex obsession by poking fun at Alex's junk.. Adam took things in an oral direction
The Sheila Show
She talked about accepting third place earlier but come bedtime, she let loose - again
She shouted, cried, wheedled and ranted at Adam, and at Ryan, and at Adam and Ryan, and repeatedly begged for some Tylenol PM.. Diary didn't give her any, and they kept calling in the guys one at a time - presumably so they could get footage of her harassing the other one
It wasn't pretty.. she even brought up Ryan's $10k and Adam's motorcycle
See more caps in the forum, thanks to ABT
She guilt-tripped Adam pretty bad and he started feeling the effects of that at one point.. for one session, he laid on her bed with his bare feet on her pillow - that was a little consolation for us.. earlier he'd hocked loogies and blown snot rockets in the shower: it's hard to fathom that he's one of the ones we've got to root for, but that's how it goes sometimes
I don't know if I trust that Adam would indeed pick Ryan over Sheila should he win, and there's no guarantee Ryan will either.. but Sheila must get off our feeds for these last days, at any cost
Monday 4/21: Packing again
Sharon loaded up her Marines & Kansas sweats once again: she must have it down to a science by now.. Sheila & Adam also packed
Sharon continued working on both Ryan and Adam whenever possible, and both of them continued to nod and agree with her, like they do.. we should know by this evening if the guys are going to stick to what they've said to each other, or if Sharon or Sheila are successful with their wheedling of either
Big Brother put some beads and clay in the pantry for them, but these initiative-challenged ninnies are too intent on being comatose and/or unimaginative to dive into them.. instead they wondered what the stuff was for, and left it there.. maybe it would help if the go-fers sent out to buy stuff for them would venture outside of the preschool aisle
I'm hoping the feeds will return to the endurance portion of the final HOH comp after they tape tonight's "live" show, but we'll just have to wait and see how that all plays out.. crews were still building in the backyard this morning, so there's something big in store for them: whether we see it on the feeds or not remains to be seen.. here's hoping
The blue crack is gone
Apparently Adam pulled Ryan aside earlier and convinced him of the logic behind booting Sharon, and it came to pass
Naturally the feedmasters withheld the show taping from us so they can pretend it's "live" when it airs tomorrow, but they also withheld the endurance comp that followed: that's a first.. they got around the Showtime problem by running today's 9am to noon feeds on there, when absolutely nothing happened
When the feeds finally returned around 10pm to Ryan & Sheila sounding somewhat forced & phony, it sounded like Sharon was gone, but we couldn't be 100% sure.. Sheila launched into a monologue about her cycle, and then Adam finally came out of Diary - whew! The comp involved water, and cold
The guys "made it formal" by finally folding up Sharon's fold-up bed.. then they finally got out the beads (12 hours later) and made some jewelry projects for awhile before turning in

Daily ratings - Final Three edition

Boo! for blocking the endurance comp from the feeds, and for absolutely no reason! We know Tuesday's show was taped on Monday, we know Sharon was evicted, and we know Ryan won Part 1. Give us some credit here, and stop treating your paying customers like we're stoopid.
But aside from that, whether from Diary meddling or not (or from our male hamsters overruling any meddling and acting on their own), we are looking good to have a Final Two who will make for enjoyable feeds in the last days for the first time in many seasons. We might not have the best jury Q&A fallout again, since Ryan & Adam are more or less on the same team just as Dick & Daniele were, but there should still be a few fireworks. If by some fluke Sheila makes it through the next eviction, her head would surely be exploding when they get back from being questioned, but we can live without that in order to have the guys in there being fun. Choosing between the two of them will also make it a tricky decision for the jury, which is always good.
Tuesday's show was more attempts at creating an Adam/Ryan feud and more handcuff rants. They pretended they were live and said 'It's day 76' twice, thus reverting back to the day count I've been using all along, so I feel better about having stuck to that. Julie asked some more pointed, potentially sabotating questions, this time to both Adam & Ryan, and she made a faux pas of sorts when she talked to Sharon about Jacob having been evicted in the first week.. umm hello? Earth to Julie's writers? Sharon was evicted in the first week with him. They made another goof when Julie said the competition 'would be played in the next couple of <blank>' - why didn't they have her do a voiceover re-do?
Paired with Sheila
WON PART 2
It was a relief to see him after the blackout, and true to form, he's the only one who seems excited to have made it this far. He continues to stick it to Sheila in little ways, and she has to take it, since he kept her. When she made a bracelet or something for Mick (her son), Adam said 'Who's Mick?' And later when she called out 'Good night guys, love ya!' he responded with 'I'm sure you do!' This guy may not have been many feedsters' first choice way back when, but he's the best we've got now and he's going to give us a good ride til the end. His imitation of Sharon's BEEBIES call is too funny for words.
Won: $10,000, movie premiere,
Beverly Hills shopping spree
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
WON PART 1
Big ups for keeping his noms intact and for yet another win! This guy's on a major streak and that's a good thing for those of us who enjoy watching him play Butthead to Adam's Beavis. He didn't seem nearly as happy as he should have been tonight, but maybe he was second guessing himself and/or Adam's influence over him. But no matter: he did the right thing for his game and more importantly, for our amusement over the next week. He was cute making a necklace for Jen, fumbling with his 'fat fingers' as Adam so rightly put it, and his version of calling the BEEBIES is also funny.
Paired with Adam
Even she was not intolerable tonight, and that was very refreshing - not counting her lengthy spiel about her menstrual problems to Ryan while we were waiting to confirm who was in Diary, of course. She doesn't seem to quite grasp that she's made it to Final Three - a huge accomplishment for anyone, however they got there - or that both guys kept her around because she can't possibly win the final HOH or the game, but so it goes. Both guys are in for some world class wheedling over the next couple of days and we're all going to suffer when she starts in on that, but for now it's all good.
Won: Movie premiere, Beverly Hills shopping spree. Wasted: Slop pass.
Evicted 1st - revived a few days later
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
She may have driven things early, but then she drove us to distraction fingering her blue blankie thingy. The perpetual pawn stood back whenever buddies Joshuah, James, Chelsia or Sheila let loose, but she cackled about their nasty plans & deeds. Mostly she laid around, and her everlasting vindictive Jacob stories, her screechy laugh, and her calls to the BEEBIES won't be missed. Strategy? Maybe.. but watching-wise, she was a dud. See Attw x's tribute :)
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!

HOH comp part 3 and final eviction live on Wednesday's show
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
Wednesday, April 23 at 8pm: HOH comp Part 1 finish and 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
Westies can watch the air show live when it's on in the East at www.watch.videobrother.com or www.liveeastcoastfeed.org
Tuesday's eviction show was in third place again with a 4.4 rating and 7 share, behind 'Dancing with the Stars' on ABC with 11.4/17 and 'Hell's Kitchen' on Fox with 6.9/10.
There are just two shows left
The final HOH comp is in three parts. The first was endurance, won by Ryan. Adam won the second part against Sheila, so he will compete with Ryan 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.
