More fights - Jerry hasn't weighed in yet

Looks like the 'Late Late Show' may not happen again this week - Craig's still on reruns

Thursday's show will be booted or delayed for football in many areas

Thursday will be a 'fast forward' with live eviction, HOH comp, noms, veto comp, and 2nd live eviction

The only remaining birthday is Dan's, September 1 - if he's still around then

Hopefully they'll get another shot at earning the grill.. it's waiting

Announcements/clues/comp questions:
·121 marble slots in a Chinese checkerboard
·Sweden is slightly larger than California
·The tallest building west of the Mississippi is 73 stories
·Over 300 species of turtles alive today
·Wurlitzer 1015 Bubbler arguably the most popular jukebox of all time

'Switzerland', 'The Psychologist' and 'Dairy Queen' refer to Diary Room; 'Vacation' refers to pre-show hotel sequester

Jerry is being called 'The Colonel'

The winner will once again receive $500k, and second place gets $50k. The weekly stipend for the others remains $750, including sequester weeks.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 mics this season

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman

Finale was scheduled for September 17 - maybe now it'll be the 16th. It's a slightly shorter season than usual, by about 10 days


Task 1: Who should Dan get nominated? Jessie/successful

Task 2: Who should Dan hug for 10 seconds? Jessie/successful

Task 3: Who should Dan vote to evict? Jessie/successful

Dan gets $20k if successful and not discovered. Apparently the previously-announced 4th task has evaporated. It's not clear whether all the 'Dan is America's Player' suspicions will invalidate him.

  August 25, 2008 - Day 49

>> past   >> present   >> future   >> all

>> Dan is Head of Household - Jerry & Michelle are nominated - Memphis used veto <<

>> Latest Twitters should show here - if not, see them here
    "I want your natural reaction"

    Dan didn't actually use BB5 Drew's backfiring catchphrase, but he came close.. he might still get there

    He did tell his teamies he wanted to go around the table at the veto meeting and ask the four replacement options to suggest a hamster, and instructed Renny & Keesha to say Michelle - he wouldn't say why.. naturally Renny balked (she hadn't even had her first coffee yet).. Keesha reported to Memphis Bob, who told Dan he was being a jerk.. Dan also passed out names to Michelle & Ollie to say when asked

    Dan made a big show of making it all sound like he wanted to make good tv, but last night he'd come up with a failsafe for himself to get out of Deal of the Century (Part 3) and likely wanted everyone to cooperate for his sake.. by the way, Memphis Bob, Renny & Keesha have a plan to get Jerry to give up his $4,000 to buy his safety, and make a tidy profit on the side

    Dan tried to give Ollie his script too, instructing him that ad libbing was not allowed, and practically threatening him.. it felt like Ollie might deck him on the spot with that promised right hook: he just stood there - Dan paced nervously

    Armageddon at high noon

    It was on the agenda, and it came along as hoped & expected - and only an hour late.. Ollie went off first and best, and Dan went to hide in HOH

    He received Ollie a few minutes later though, who said Dan had destroyed his manhood or something, and confronted Dan about seeing Monica pre-show.. Dan said he'll talk, but he isn't gonna shout

    Ollie shouted a bit later though, to himself in the backyard, and cussed and kicked over weights, and broke some stuff outside & in before going to Diary for a long, long time..
    TV lighting pole $499, giant lollipops $12.50, plastic prop keys $3.95.. temper tantrum on the feeds? Priceless


    Ollie's stomping, Michelle's crying, and Renny's shouting all calmed down relatively fast, so it was a long, slow afternoon waiting for the next act

    Mostly Dan's gloating calmed down - it crashed in fact - apparently Ollie's "manhood" comment got to him along with the Monica references, and set off an attack by his conscience.. he laid on his bed all forlorn for awhile with his photo & letter from home.. Renny came to visit and mom'd him nearly to the point of crying, but it was a good save for their friendship (for lack of a better word) if nothing else

    Jerry was AWOL most of the afternoon.. I'm patiently awaiting his turn to mouth off about the day's events - it has to be coming, along with another round with any/all of them

    Act II cancelled

    After awhile Jerry's non-presence was noticeable, and his reaction to the Dan/Memphis Bob veto outcome was conspicuous by its absence.. maybe they were keeping it for Showtime?

    Nope: other than a marathon dishwashing session (repeated by Dan soon after - too soon to have built up that many dishes again), Jerry didn't show up on the feeds for hours.. he, Ollie & Michelle were occasionally glimpsed on Showtime, but not for long

    All feeds were on The Four in the backyard all night - as if they were under orders to stay there and keep the focus off the hotheads, since there's not enough room in Thursday's show for what's happened already, let alone anything more

    Ollie & Jerry finally swapped places with them at 1am, where Jerry in particular trashed Keesha & Renny in the most vile, vicious ways.. he seemed extra grouchy, as if he were drunk or dosed.. for whatever reasons, he's still under the delusion that Keesha controls Renny, and he's spreading that misinformation far & wide

    Daily ratings - Ollie's flying lollies edition

    Ratings are based on entertainment value

    Bad bad feedmasters for not giving us a direct view of Ollie's tantrum, or his convos after his very lengthy Diary (where he was likely presented with an itemized invoice for damages). Bad again for giving Showtime a feed that wasn't on the feeds THAT WE PAY FOR once again. We understand that it's too much action to fit into Thursday's already-overpacked episode, but that's why we watch the feeds: they are supposed to be 'Everything You Can't See on TV' and they should not be manipulated depending on what they've already planned to show on TV.

    Won: $20k (presumably)
    Dear Dan,
    Ups for being the day's catalyst, but contrary to your peers' delusions, you are not a writer, story editor, or director for 'Big Brother 10' so please stop handing out scripts and talking like you're any of these things. You've got the worst case of HOH Syndrome we've seen in a very long time, and you need to realize that you can't gloat about how great your plan is and then pout when it comes to pass because people get mad at you. This HOH doesn't make you the Star of the Season either: everyone remembers the tantrums & fights, but few remember their causes. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Mr. Gheesling, you are no Will Kirby. Get over yourself.
    Your pal,

    Won: $4k
    Negative by proxy (mostly), since The Powers That Be withheld him from us on what should have been one of his Street Fightin' Man main events. Instead, we got him back for a little while when it was past his bedtime and he was a grouchy hot mess. I understand he's got the America's Choice role coming up and they don't want to tarnish his kind, elderly gentleman image, but we're feedsters! We already know he's as much Mister Hyde as Mister Rogers, so cut us a break already. His vile comments once he did show up might be partially explained by booze or drugs, but not excused.

    She just keeps staying out of the line of fire even when she's in the midst of everything: she's this year's teflon hamster. Somehow she's got the reputation of being the designated Loose Girl (especially now that the Real Loose Girl is gone) but despite Keesha's wild stories, she's really been pretty sedate in there. Today she wouldn't go into Diary in her bikini when called until she changed; she's not been seen nekkid or even partially as far as I know; she wouldn't tell her teamies how she was recruited when that came up; and she did a perfect job playing dumb when Michelle explained to her all about the Deal of the Century - even though Keesha was in on all of it.

    Won: Classic Camaro
    Ups for not wearing a v-neck shirt for once! It took me a minute to recognize him in a regular shirt.. I thought we had a new guy in there.

    Ups for crying & pouting after her surprise nom as that's always a payoff, but more so for rebounding quickly once again: she is very good at that. Ups also for thwarting TPTB like a pro, by cussing nonstop when she wanted to be left alone and the cameras didn't want to comply. She dropped so many f-bombs they finally did leave her alone, and that's the sign of a true BB scholar. She's close to brilliant, but not close enough to avoid the backdoor with her name written on it, let alone see it coming. Her conspiracy theories are way out of control but like many conspiracy theories, there's a degree of truth in them. The places she takes them are funny though, since she goes so far out in left field.

    Many say he's a non-hamster, but he's made a lot of contributions to the Extracurricular tally and upped his count there one more today. He was suspicious the other day that Dan might not stick with the Deal of the Century (Part 3) but I guess he forgot about that, and he supplied the day's best moments, even if we didn't see a lot of them. He should just be glad he didn't get nom'd, but hissy fits with property damage are the big fun, so it's all good. Some think he should have been kicked out but there's no room in the schedule for that, and throwing lollipops at nothing (sober) really doesn't compare to throwing chairs around in a drunken rage.. although ejection for lollies would haunt Ollie more & longer than doggie-style with April will anyway. 'If he goes off again, BB will have to put him on an easy payment schedule' - © lam in Hamsterwatch Chat.

    Not her worst day but not her best either. She balked at Dan when he assigned her script for the meeting and railed at him afterward, but I have a feeling at least some of that was just more seed planting, since she was smiling when Ollie first went off on Dan immediately after the meeting. Later she almost made Dan cry by being the perfect confessor/mom to his attack of conscience, but other than that she mostly snacked, napped, and snacked some more. She can get almost as ugly about Jerry as he does about her & Keesha, and that's not good (even though it may be justified). She has come out the real winner of Dan's Deal of the Century, since it's set her & Memphis Bob up to work together even though they can't stand and totally distrust each other. It set up Memphis Bob in the same way, but Renny's got Keesha on her side while he only has Dan - who nobody's going to trust now.

    Won: Designer clothes, $5k
    We've had sex on the feeds before, but we never actually saw it until she came along. She one-upped often but to her credit, she impressively won the first endurance. She had delusions about her importance in & out of the habitat, and her Barbie Battles with Keesha plus her other fights were something. But we knew from the start she wouldn't be invisible, thanks to her most unusual introduction to the others.

    Won: Hawaii trip, $1k
    She ran the tie-dye room with an iron fist but only for a short time: her minions had turned on her long before Jessie & Michelle painted a bull's eye on her for being their leader. She took a lot of flak for leaving her babies and for choosing Hawaii, and her financial sob stories didn't always add up. But she told some fun stories, rebelled against giving comp recaps to Diary, and added great fireworks to fights.

    The first to get an empty wheel before their time, his comic relief wore off fast and he brought nothing but a major mirror obsession and raging insecurity. But it's not all bad: he laid around in pink pillows and talked himself gone with rampaging harangues, and he'll carry the fact that he lost to a girl while wearing spandex, then lost to three girls plus Renny. Rehabs will profit from the Jessie Drinking Game.

    The third fan fave to walk the plank, she was a great sidekick to the fun guys but she didn't bring much after they left, including any real attempt to save herself. Like many who have gone before, she seems like she'd be a cool person in reality, but this isn't. Her angry hat and illegal tribute bandana aside, she did a great Julie puppet and manscaping. Bikini fans will miss her, as will the Behind Pillows alliance.

    They all liked him and his shenanigans, but his comp potential and desperate pledges of multi allegiance got him booted anyway, plus he was Brian's pal. He entertained them and us like few have before, with skits, dances, nekkid romps, Ambien-induced bedtime stories and general looniness. Too bad he went before he made it upstairs: he'd probably have revived Bath Buddies® and done it right.

    He made more of an impact than most who get voted out first and he had the potential to be a fan fave but he over-allied and betrayed too early and had a very negative edit to boot. He was smart, funny, and a good ringleader for the guys - time will tell if they can be as fun without him. Sock Puppet Theater on only the second night of feeds, under his direction, could be the highlight of the season.
