Day 50 - Wednesday, August 3

Halfway, finally

It feels like the season should be winding down but no, we've only hit the halfway point.. they got their party with music and booze behind Jeffish to celebrate the milestone

Earlier, Da'Vonne sat down with Nicole to work her about the vote.. she started by saying they had a strong bond and agreement, but now Day didn't think they'll even be friends after the show - Day knows how to get someone's attention, even if it isn't necessarily her best route to do so.. they rehashed awhile (pointlessly), and finished up with Day asking if everything's good for Thursday, Nicole said yes, and they wrapped with a hug - Flashback 8/3 2.28pm.. Day's in that proverbial rock/hard place, knowing in her gut she's a goner, but unable to put her finger on what she can do to change it

Corey waited outside Diary forever to scare Nicole and douse her with baby powder but when it finally happened, all four feeds were on Zakiyah grooming Paulie - urp.. Michelle wigged out a bit again, saying she wasn't being herself and she's afraid she'll snap on someone.. Natalie reiterated again to James that she'll vote to evict Da'Vonne, but she remained worried because she's promised both of them.. Bridgette waged another assault on the ants, and Da'Vonne continued to avoid landing in #Deathrace2016 by doing more stunt braids maintenance


Feeds came back after their party to leftover cake, pizza, and a drunken Paul on the table, and things went downhill from there.. apparently Victor called Corey a douchebag, which upset and confused him, there was another strip show, Zakiyah did a lapdance on Paulie and Victor did one on Michelle, which she retold as him looking at her like he was "deranged".. Zakiyah apologized to Paulie for being tipsy and said she hoped she doesn't embarrass him.. later he told Paul she'd given him a hickey

In the anime room, Corey did a pileup onto Paulie and they were joined by James who did some impromptu DIY chiropracty on them.. Nicole whined at Corey "Will you cuddle me? Will you cuddle me Corey? Whyyyy? Coreeeyyyy" and Zakiyah straddled Paulie while Victor piled onto Paul

Da'Vonne pulled Zakiyah aside and suggested she put on some pants, pointing at the cameras, and she did so before going back to/on Paulie in anime room.. meanwhile Bridgette was picking at Paul's back in HOH

Next thing you know, Corey and Nicole were doing their whatever-they-do undercovers and Zakiyah was licking Paulie, and a bit later she was grinding on him.. Paulie showed no response whatsoever, but Corey was watching from the next bed and diddling himself - Flashback 8/3 11.02pm.. later Paulie and Zakiyah retired to their bumpercar and got busy doing their whatever-they-do undercovers.. later still, Paulie had a check-in with Paul in HOH, and Nicole joined Corey in his bumpercar

In other news, Corey had his second sleepwalking incident this morning, walking up to HOH and getting into Paul's bed.. later he said he thought/dreamed an HOH lockdown had been called but no, that's tomorrow.. Da'Vonne didn't do much active campaigning other than a few hints and some small, slight guilt seeds dropped here and there, and the rest of them carried on doing what they do, things like Michelle and Natalie wondering again if there could possibly be a boys alliance

Day 49 - Tuesday, August 2

BB19 again

First things first, there's a bit more news about the Big Brother 19 fall season.. Reality Blurred, who first broke the news, updated today that it will air exclusively on All Access - and why not? All the infrastructure's in place, and they probably don't like how many subscribers cancel when the BB finale credits run.. The Hollywood Reporter also ran a story about it, which is pretty much 99% confirmation until CBS formally announces, since they're running regular pieces this season with Julie and Allison Grodner (aka partnering with CBS).. see Links of the Day below for more

Update CBS formally announced on Wednesday! BB19 is coming this fall, only on All Access

A James oops

Back in the current habitat, the camera came out for silly poses, like it does.. Paul and Natalie took advantage of the Paris room for some new settings at least.. Paul wrote his blog and tweets, and he proudly announced that all the viewer questions included the word friendship.. he doesn't realize those are just the ones that were picked (or made up?) by The Powers That Be - the replies I saw to official tweets asking for questions weren't complimentary, at all

Da'Vonne crashed a Nicole, Paul, Corey, James safari lounge meeting discussing her and their post-Day plans.. when she asked what they were talking about, they did a quickstep and said double eviction, which they had also been discussing (they are expecting one this week but I'm not - Julie always pre-announces those).. but then James slipped when he mentioned putting up Victor and Bridgette if it's a double - oops!

Da'Vonne immediately said "Bridgette won't be here".. later she asked James what they'd been talking about before she came in, and told him that Nicole's face had turned red at his comment.. she asked him if her name had come up for double eviction options and he (truthfully) said no to that.. in my opinion, she knew she was the target Thursday night when they were all fighting to volunteer to go up against Bridgette, but she seems to be believing it more and more with every passing moment.. many times today she sat alone and glaring while others hamstered around her, and she's been talking to us and asking for help several times a day

Natalie asked James what she should do since she's promised her vote to both Bridgette and Da'Vonne, and he suggested she ask Paul.. she did, and he pontificated in full volume for way, way too long.. at some point he did tell her to evict Da'Vonne, and when Natalie asked if she should warn her, Paul said no

Michelle (correctly) said the process pictured here would make for great screen captures.. Victor and Corey made cereal box airplanes, Bridgette made a lovely lattice-top apple pie, Natalie cleaned James's marinated Crocs with a toothbrush, Corey griped a whole lot more about being a Have-not, and Zakiyah cried to Nicole that Paulie won't tell her what's going on

Drama and tears

I don't know what set everything off but it went off, and how.. Zakiyah cried to Nicole about how frustrated she was with Paulie, how he doesn't tell her anything game-wise and their personal stuff was messy too.. Nicole said Zakiyah should talk it out with him, and Zakiyah asked Nicole to tell Paulie to meet her in Paris

Nicole eventually did tell Paulie, but first she told Paulie everything Zakiyah said, including the fact that she was crying "but you're not supposed to know that" and together they agreed Zakiyah had to go.. Zakiyah meanwhile was sitting pathetically alone in the REDRUM tunnel to Paris, waiting

Paulie finally made it to Paris over 20 minutes later, and things went from bad to worse.. Zakiyah tried to explain her confusion and frustration, and Paulie browbeat her about some info she supposedly withheld from him, and that made her "kinda seem phony".. Zakiyah's frustration built and her tears fell, and Paulie's smugness soared to new heights, even for him - Flashback 8/2 8.50pm

Meanwhile Nicole reported both of her convos to Paul, and retells exploded all over when Paulie and Zakiyah finally emerged from Paris.. Paulie revved up his tired old loops, saying Zakiyah is playing like Vanessa (and Tiffany).. meanwhile Da'Vonne's mood lifted visibly as she knows chaos is almost required for possible vote flips, and she told us she can get Zakiyah back and boot Paulie "if" they don't evict her (they will)

Three hours after they parted, Zakiyah was back to HOH, straddling Paulie as he smirked at his reflection.. his empty wheel has been installed below - I'm done

Day 48 - Monday, August 1

Da'Vonne makes a plan

Da'Vonne talked to us while getting ready for the veto meeting, saying it's time for her to win HOH, time to shake the game up, and "people are sitting real comfortable, let's change the game a bit, just a little bit, stay tuned"

Paulie veto'd himself of course and Paul put Day up in his place as planned, so unless she's got the Round Trip ticket, she might not have much chance of putting that plan into action, but we'll see - as she said, stay tuned.. apparently several of them had fits of giggles at the meeting - oops

Meanwhile, Paulie and Zakiyah's on again/off again was on again this morning and they joined Corey and Nicole on the you-figure-out-what-they're-doing sex events tally - Flashback 8/1 6.19am

Da'Vonne took her nomination well, on the surface at least, and set to working Paul and others, and talking to us more.. James told the boys club that he and Natalie were kind of fighting, due to some bed kickout incident last night.. they also held a funeral for Ernest the fly, whom Da'Vonne had whacked with a towel.. then James found his marinated frozen Crocs, and declared war on the house, especially Natalie - Flashback 8/1 1.08pm

He wrapped her favorite running shoes and stashed them in the freezer, and then set to wrapping her precious makeup bag.. he used two rolls of foil and two rolls of plastic wrap, and created a brick about a foot long and almost as wide.. she made him heart-shaped eggs, then discovered her shoes were missing


When a backyard lockdown ended, James called out for everyone to come quick, they had a new care package! He'd stashed the makeup bag in Natalie's care package box, and everyone had a good time watching her cut and pull away the yards and yards of wrap.. a very good sport, she had the best time of all, saying she loves presents.. she also got her shoes back from the freezer, not yet solid

Guys did a tug of war and Paul threw Natalie in the pool but for the most part, James and Natalie continued carrying the entertainment load for all 11 when he chased her around with shaving cream and baby powder.. he got her good and she was once again a good sport about it, and proclaimed him the winner

Have-not Corey grumbled a lot about Victor throwing out loose trail mix when he cleaned the kitchen.. apparently Corey had painstakingly picked out all the raisins he didn't want, and left the rest on the table.. I guess Corey's too busy laying around to pick more raisins out of their many bags of trail mix

Both Da'Vonne and Bridgette are being assured they're safe

Ratings - I'll Try to Be Nice Next Time edition

Ratings are based on entertainment value, give or take

Nicole said something to Corey about how it's hard to lose one's partner in there, because they don't have the support system of parents, siblings, BFFs that they're used to. That made me start thinking about the youthful casts, and how BB should be about BB, and not about young people learning to be adults. I understand they think they have to pander to that 18-25 target audience, but I don't think having inexperienced and emotionally immature hamsters is the best way to do that. It'd be nice if we could have casts with fewer misogynistic guys and catty girls but that's probably asking too much. But hey, they're the experts - I'm just the eejit in the corner shooting rubberbands.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

She expanded her repertoire from cookies to banana bread, peanut brittle, and a lovely apple pie with a lattice top. She also was seen chewing her nails like crazy when the Paulie/Zakiyah drama exploded because reminder, she's also on the block. I'm pulling for her as the underdog here, and the fact that she's the least distasteful of them all is just a bonus.

Won: $2,500

I don't think he's ever told a story that didn't involve hunting for bars or being 'so drunk with my boys' and that's not entertaining, that's just drunk stories. He's so miserable as a Have-not that I'm hoping he gets it again and again. Call it revenge of the goat.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

I want to give her ups for realizing what's going down and starting to work it, but I think it's too little too late, and she's being too quiet about it. Granted, she's mostly going because of the same reason she and others wanted Frank gone - gaming too hard and too soon, and working against their allies while they're perfectly safe - but her particular game of planting poison seeds is more effective than his in-your-face version. She's displaying a sense of entitlement to stay (and win) that isn't attractive, and she's asking feedsters to help her and pray for her far too much. Girl, this vote won't even close till after you meet Julie again. However if she has the Round Trip and boomerangs back in, she will win the nullify two votes power because so many viewers are confused by the timing. That'll be chaos deluxe and everybody better duck. Maybe she won't go out the following week after nullifying votes like she did last year, but she probably would since they have to open their care package in public.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

Blunder much? Tuesday's major oops in front of Da'Vonne was comical and dumb, as were all his answers each time she interrogated him about it. His return to pranks Monday was instigated by Natalie ('she started it!') but fortunately it's been awhile since he's jumped out at anyone so it was a good time for a few hours. It wasn't so fun after Natalie instigated again Tuesday night and they pranked each other a few more rounds.. too soon, too soon.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

Game-wise she's all over the map and that's whatever it is but hey, she's still there. I'm constantly flabbergasted by the things she blurts out - she's never had and is terrified of getting a Pap smear, she didn't know peeing in the shower isn't normal or acceptable by roommates, and her solo and public tirades about being ugly and fat. She's neither, but some of the things that come out of her mouth are.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions; Never-Not Pass

I'd give her solid ups for staying upbeat and fun no matter how awful it all gets, but ever since she got her Never-not Pass, she's developed a bad habit of randomly facing the cameras and saying 'hey America!' followed by some Diary-voice comments about what's going on, which we already know about. It doesn't help that James encourages this. Still, she and Bridgette are breaths of fresh air which we very desperately need in that stagnant cesspit. See James: she was a great sport with Monday's pranking, but started it up again too soon Tuesday. It's not her fault he wore out his welcome with that stuff a year before she met him, but we need a break from it.

Won: $2,500

We talk about hamsters who should have gone on a dating show instead, but Nicole has actually turned Big Brother into her own personal dating show, twice. Her game's a mess, doubly so because I think she really believes she can get away with this strategy cycle of run around, backstab, run around some more and backstab some more. We know and she should know that can't last, but she keeps escalating it anyway. She seems to think she won't get Britney'd by the guys, even though it also happened on her own season to Christine. If she was somewhat fun and entertaining like she was last time, it might be different, but she just lays around with Corey when she isn't backstabbing, and now she's picking the raisins out of his trail mix for him. What? Let's not even talk about what they do when they're laying around, kthx.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

He's one YOUR BOY shy of getting his own empty wheel, but I'll give him an extension because his HOHitis is strong but that will come to an end soon, and because once I start spreading the premature empty wheels around, it'll be hard to stop. I do have Paul on ignore most of the time, it just isn't official yet.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

I've been avoiding him on feeds for quite awhile but after a second nasty emotional battering of Zakiyah, I've had it. He's arrogant, conceited, smug, skeevy, endlessly repetitive, and above all he's boring as hell. He's on ignore type thing.

Won: Revival; immunity 1st 2 evictions

Dude! You think they're your bros and you're always broing around with them, but they hate you! They're using you for your vote and for fetching their food and drinks, but they hate you! They laugh at you when you leave the room! I wish he'd overhear something and maybe throw his lot in with the girls, but it probably wouldn't help his or their games, so I guess it's just as well he's having a fun and Battle Back-extended summer vacation.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

I had this all written up about her overall non-game, tempered by Paulie verbally berating and beating her down not once but twice, but just before uploading she went back into his non-loving arms after swearing she wouldn't. If she was gaming/acting that's one thing, but she could pretend to forgive and make up without straddling him. I just wish she could have seen him smirking at his reflection as she was wrapped around him but on second thought, it may not have made a difference. She deserves and should have more respect for herself, game or no game, and I hope she learns that.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

He made a rookie mistake by playing too hard and fast, way too early, when he should have laid low and enjoyed the safety that was handed to him. But he played for his life last time, and he was mentored by the sidekick rather than the master. His social game was the best of the bunch till he got in trouble for slapping asses and being mouthy, but he's not a bad guy overall and his exit was a fatal hit for the feeds. Pixels were his third costume, a hamster record. His friendship with Bridgette was fun to watch, with funky movie retells and baking, and every random topic under the sun.

Won: $2,500

She came in looking and sounding so much like Vanessa it was spooky, but it didn't take long to realize her game was more Audrey-style chaos and sabotage than poker-faced strategy. Paulie's the only one who didn't get that memo but that's Paulie for you. Two weeks in a row she didn't campaign to save herself nearly as much as others campaigned for her, but when she transformed into Free Agent IDGAF Tiffany it was a joy to behold. I'm surprised #They let one of the six stuntcasts go before jury, but it just goes to show the whole thing isn't as rigged as some believe.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

She went in saying she'd use behavioral sciences to maneuver her way to the win but she spent most of her time with Bridgette and Natalie who were barely playing BB. Her huge confession to them about being the 'secret nerd' and aspiring mathematician was just silly, and she'll always be remembered for not knowing what 9x9 is. She didn't bring much to the table beyond her abnormally high voice and hair bows, and even the hair bows didn't stick around. She seems like a pleasant enough person but like so many others, she should have gone on a dating show instead.

Won: Nothing

One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), he was convinced he owned the house, he was the messiah of the newbies, the savior, the sanctuary, and the next Mario Lopez. He wore his doggie comp suit for days, but mostly he just wore underpants. His gametalks with Paul and Victor were pure comedy since they had no clue whatsoever how far out of every loop they were, and The Jozea and Paul Talk Show concluded with the two of them roaming the house looking for a camera that worked. Jozea's shtick got old fast for many, but he was feeds gold for trainwreck fans like myself.

Won: $2,500

I didn't like having to combine an intro with an obit, but that's how the dog biscuit crumbles. He seemed like a fun guy with potential for fun feeds, especially his admission that he'd be 'willing to flirt if necessary' but he also might have gotten into heated political discussions, and BB is not the place for that. He didn't technically get Jodi'd since he got to compete twice, but gone before feeds is never good, and neither is trial by combat. Too bad the token older/regular person/fan got the first boot but young, pretty, hormonal hamsters are all the rage anymore.
