April 25 = February 17: HUGE house-wide fight led by Chelsia/Amanda/Joshuah,
plus the Jen/Ryan and Jen/Sheila "racist" fights, and Parker goes on strike
>> Ryan is Head of Household, for what it's worth <<
A jury of their peers, more or less|
Overnight events, continued from yesterday's rant episode..
Adam & Ryan were whisked away behind trivia at midnight, but not before we had producer audio slippage saying the questions would come from the jury sequester house (so they're still there, with Sheila).. Adam asked twice where it was, but got no answer
They came back after 90 minutes or so, very worked up: Adam seemed more pumped up than Ryan, who was relatively quiet, and biting & spitting fingernails - I hadn't seen him him do either before.. they didn't go much into who actually asked what, but reacted more to attitudes: they said "Hoops came out" in Sharon, and that "James was cool".. Sheila was very angry at both of them, saying "You both suck!" four times, and Joshuah was also angry, but it sounds like some of his comments were offscreen - something else we haven't heard before.. someone brought up throwing comps, and Adam went off on somebody
Ryan: It doesn't matter, dude
Adam: Fuck Sheila, dude! They all see through her bullshit
Adam: They're all gonna sit and sulk now for two days over their decision
Adam: I'm ruthless, dude - you were close to snapping too, weren't you?
Ryan: Just on Sheila
Adam: It's the whole game, dude - it's not just about outside in the back yard! Fucking morons
Adam: I like Chelsia after that, she's all right.. she tries to be tough with her questions but you can tell by her tone of voice she isn't really pissed off
At one point, a bit of very angry Sheila audio slipped through from Paradise™, saying she didn't want to give "somebody like that" any money, and "Put your money where your mouth is, Adam!" but they cut her off for the lovely theme song.. that strobed for awhile as the guys paced, and then we got some BEEBIES cam with strobing audio, as they ironed out the technical difficulties (rats!)
Adam: Sheila really expected me to carry her to the end of the game.. not one time was she in a position to save me
Adam [pointing to pics]: I rocked his question, I rocked her question, and his.. at Joshuah, I went downhill
Adam: I'm worked the fuck up right now.. picture if you were here with Sheila right now!
Adam: Why are they such haters, dude? Just jealous
Ryan: Yea, I dunno
Adam: We didn't backstab nobody.. we stabbed them right in the front
Ryan [about Adam's charity plans]: I shoulda made up stuff like that too!
Adam: Dude, did I say at the end of my speech 'and smoke cigarettes'? Did I say that??
Ryan: Fuck them people! Everyone except Matty and James and Chatty
Ryan [about Sharon and their movie premiere date]: Most fukn boring bitch in the fukn world, don't fukn talk to me
Ryan: That's fukn Hoops? That's all you got, fukn Hoops?
Ryan acknowledged he hadn't seen it coming, but most non-feedsters wouldn't, and Allison Grodner had told them earlier in the evening that it was "not a big deal".. he went into his "fukn" loop a bit, but was fairly quiet overall and went to bed relatively soon.. Adam kept talking them both up, like he does, and reminding Ryan that they'd both triumphed over all those bitter jurors, and that they'd both won.. Adam got up a few times but eventually they both went quiet, if restless
I have a feeling Ryan might be thinking he did give up $450k that he didn't have to, or maybe realizing he had too many side deals all along - that stuff usually comes back to haunt.. but turning against a friend, for cash, probably comes back worse.. he'll be okay even if he does finish second
They finally got up around 3pm, still reacting to their overnight grilling.. jury fallout is always good, but these guys include their trademark humor along with the usual indignation, making it fun for all
Ryan: Josh called me a fatass last night
Ryan [quoting Joshuah, about the BEEBIES]: I'm surprised you haven't ate 'em yet!
Ryan [about Joshuah]: I'll squash his head in my armpit
Ryan: I can't really complain, that's the only thing he said to me.. you gotta hate him! I'd fukn hate him if I was you
Adam: I don't think any of them motherfuckers like me at all.. it's a toss up, bro
Ryan: I'm getting fukn gray hairs in my goatee from all the stress in this fukn house
Adam: My stomach's all fucked up.. I think I made love to them BLTs too fast
Someone (Ryan, I think) put suds into the hot tub.. coincidence? Nekkid sudsy hot tub party was last night on the feeds replay.. the guys examined them and said they'd been covered over with a layer of gnats.. Ryan showed off the sweat stripes on his shirt earlier, after working out, then the feedmasters showed us the ones on his shorts: gee, thanks a heap
DiGiorno came out and it was all good again.. they're counting the minutes til freedom, as are we all
From Thursday: a few highlights from the Dick & Janelle chat (also a few caps); and Adam rehearses his speech silently & aloud are posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Sleeping late edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
As much fun as I had goofing on Wednesday's CBS episode, I couldn't let its ups ride here in light of the numbers racket I ranted about Thursday. Even if I'm wrong in ass-uming 14 of them (give or take) didn't know what day they'd entered the habitat a few days after they'd entered it, there's still no excuse for a company of CBS's size to post such blatant errors on their website, let alone to let them ride for this long. What's more, I'm tired of finding & pointing out their damn errors so they can fix them. By rights, they should be paying me consulting fees, but I'm still living on cereal.. especially this season.

Paired with Sheila
Jury fallout is always one of the best events on the feeds, and these two didn't disappoint. Adam was indeed more prepared for it and while he did seem to be angry about Sheila & Joshuah, he didn't seem seriously upset: just something else for Adam to mouth off about. As usual, he mouthed off in his boisterous, complicated way, but also seemed to go out of his way to ensure Ryan that the two of them were equals and playing on an even field against the seven sour grapesters. Later on they were both on low energy most of the day, but when Adam went into his business plans discussion, he made it clear he knows his stuff.. between hands down his pants, that is.
Won: $10,000, movie premiere,
Beverly Hills shopping spree
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
I don't think the poor guy had any idea what hit him but they rarely do, thanks to Allison Grodner telling them 'it's no big deal' (presumably while simultaneously winding up the jurors to their full vicious potential). It sounds like he handled it relatively well though, and it's a good thing these two guys had each other there to rant & bitch with. I still can't believe someone they all evicted unanimously has stuck around to be one of the finalists, but that's just one of the many, many unbelievable things about this season.
Paired with Adam
She had loads of potential but her rants, wild mood swings, repetitive loops, and entitlement speeches made even her fans crazy, and when she launched her Hate Natalie campaign she turned downright ugly. She was all contradictions about her BB knowledge, and I suspect her strategy (if any) was to brainwash her victims by talking them to death. She bashed Adam but worked with him throughout. And know this: she's 45 46 frikkin years old, she's a single frikkin mom, she's writing a frikkin book, and yew know whut? She won't be missed very much. Click for adult material from her heyday.
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!

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.
