This site isn't 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! More to come, bookmark & come back! .. that dingo

Houston, we have a problem (send booze)

I figured they wouldn't live up to the dizzying heights of yesterday's special two-parter extended episode, but I didn't think it would get this bad this soon.. In a fit of idiocy and self-righteousness, Adria chose not to carry out the Five Fingers & a Pinkie Plan, and instead put up perennial nominee Marvin and former alliance buddy Will.

WHAT??!! That can't be right! Maybe it's a Friday the 13th prank.. maybe I misunderstood.. Ad/Nat fooled everyone into thinking they were one person for weeks, they helped stumble upon the writers' elephant-in-the-living-room true power of veto.. and they put up not two, but one of their own??

Yes grasshopper, this is the hamsters' way...... (crikey, send more booze.)

Marvin ("ain't got no allies") and Will ("hey, more tv time!") discuss the situation

Adria talked about her decision.. a lot. Endlessly, non-stop, on and on and on and on.
Some listened, some tried to talk to her, and everyone talked to each other.
But mostly Adria talked about her decision. And talked about it some more.

When she wasn't talking about her decision, she was crying
I guess it's tough to be a continually explaining, self-righteous cow

(Yikes! Did I say that? Sorry, it's late.. hang in there - sex is coming, sorta)

Adria received visitors - wearing her own personal HOH robe - but not even
Nik's fluid logic or six flying fingers could bust through A's cold hard pink shell

Adria: All I gotta say to you guys who are voting, is just let your nominees reveal themselves

Will: After all that, I'm kinda shocked.. I thought we were working together here

Adria: Wait, I don't want anyone to say anything.. if you think about who you are and where you are in this game, you really should be having a good week

Adria: There are things you're gonna learn about people in this house.. I see a great light in you

Adria: I think there are some people who would have cracked if they'd been nominated

Adria: It doesn't matter what good you do.. people only remember the bad

Nik: I don't like speculation

Marv: I gotta tv show to be on, my ass is collateral damage

Marv: I got no ally in the whole house.. don't even have anybody to call for veto

Marv: I read the Bible too! I just wanna know if the Bible had something to do with me being nominated

Adria: I let my faith lead my life, so yea it had something to do with my decision

Marv: Baby Jesus doesn't want me here, so be it

Adria: I don't know.. maybe just pray on that and find your answers


Adria: I told Will 'being on the block is a good thing.. I was this close to putting Natalie up there today.. but you know what? You'll be safe this week.. but if you don't learn from it? Then dadgum I shoulda picked someone else'

Natalie: It shows you their intelligence level on this.. it makes me sick

Adria: I didn't tell everyone cuz I didn't wanna corrupt their minds.. I just presented options.. let 'em make up their own minds


Nik: I don't believe how they say 'so-and-so said this about you'.. that's so fricking high school

Kissing lessons and HJ in the cloud room
Drew: "I don't do PDA's"

Nik (from the other bed): Cunnilingus!
(Drew laughs)
Diane: What?
Drew: You don't always have to close them (lips) unless you don't wanna do that with me
Diane: What, just hold them open?
Nik: Diane, you talk too much
Nik: Drew, make her kiss you so she'll shut up

Nik: Remember, I don't know that y'all kiss over there yet..
Drew: I'm trying to work with this
Nik: ..or perform analingus on each other
Diane: Tell me how you want me to kiss you.. we kiss different, we'll never make it
Drew: Don't say that

Diane: Drew can't kiss, America.. take it from an expert
Diane: You haven't seen me in the real world.. I'm twice as hot as I am in here
Drew: You shouldn't have told me that

I know these all look the same, but there was very little movement, no more kissing, and no talking (none!!) Drew let out a tiny little sigh about the time of the 4th pic, then rolled away and they went to sleep.. he did say before nodding off "I've got dummy hand"
It was completely robotic, utterly passionless, and really pretty sad.. but it happened
Drew got done, and Diane just laid there and did him
What Drew said is true - there was no affection in this display

Aldav says these are exclusive pics.. I'd post them larger only there's not much to see - definitely no conclusive proof - and somebody would just steal them anyway
Shut up, shut up, shut up! Somebody please slap her! Stick a ball-gag in her mouth! Shut up for awhile Adria, just STFU!!

He's just there, splayed out under the spell of Ad's everlasting explanations.

She just laid there and did him. Not a sound, not a word, nothing. I think this chick is more messed up than I thought (and not in a good way.) Hey Diane, hold out for a "thank you" at least!

He's just there, same as usual. A little relieved now maybe. (Remember, he "doesn't do PDAs")

Adria's out-talking her.. it's that bad.

Third nom in a row, struggling against succumbing to Adria's death-laser explanation machine, yet he still comes up with "You could see that clear as day.. Stevie Wonder coulda seen that!"

The Smart One goes down with the Plan. Acknowledged tonight she was picked on as a kid (did I call this one or what?)

Of course she's in cahoots with Adria (after all, if one wins, they both win) but was seen trying to give Diane a secret sign language message that ended quickly when A came in.. odd, and possibly a trap. She's getting pissy today: "I may look like the HOH but I am not the HOH!" And she's crying again too.

Bad attitude about getting a nom, but Ad's everlasting explanations seemed to have swayed him a bit and now he's excited about it (tv time!) Hasn't stopped talking since.

Definitely good tv, but only because of the players. Julie's Thursday script is getting tedious, and she definitely looks like she's hiding a budding pregnancy under those cards. Cheap shot of the night: asking Nik again how it feels to find out her dad had another life and/or abandoned a family? She hasn't even been able to talk to him about it yet.. lighten up on her already!

Hamster watching doesn't get better than this guy. Bath buddies forever!

The goon is gone - long live the goon :)

Unique, fun, annoying, ditzy, and oddly vulnerable. Bless her pointy lil head.

This year's Lisa, but without her luck.

Smart or not, he was first out: 'nuff said. Fold your arms and go home.
