Start the countdown
Michael's Blog gets better and better - there's no way the real official blog will be more entertaining than this official blog.. I hope whoever's behind it keeps it running.. it's a bonus that so many people believe it's Michael just cuz it says it is - PT Barnum was right
We may have to fire James' pinch-blogger Dustin though, he hasn't made a peep since June 30.. his own blog may provide a clue: "I enjoy spending quality time fucking with people"
Try the human clock to do the countdown til Julie's back in her boudoir and Real flips the switch.. let's hope they get off their bottoms and get the streams working right, the fishies are practically floating tonight
Take the BB trivia quiz to help pass the time til summer starts officially tomorrow
Things that make you go hmmm bbfan got a threatening email about his screencap site, yet bb6world announces "If you do not have the live video stream that's not a problem, we will be having a Live Feed Update announced every 5minutes!" - what's up with that? They are affiliated with the sites that have been having all these "sneak peeks" from inside, too
Hamsters in da house I don't know how these sites keep getting these leaks, but here are photos of them inside from TVRules.net this time.. it'll make you kind of sick if you have the feeds and are stuck watching fishies til Thursday night, but it's pretty cool too - it's almost here!
7/5/05 - Drew & Diane come back, kinda
Ok, The Early Show finally got it together - watch the piece.. it doesn't have much news if you've been keeping up and have seen the other house tours & hamster video interviews, but it was still kinda fun.. Drew & Diane had about 5 seconds screen-time (hardly worth the airfare to fly them out) but they were obedient and pushed the "perch" that CBS seems to think is so spiffy
The much-rumored "hidden bedroom" exists! It has a secret door in the wall covered with the silver & black ØØØ logos - they call it the Rainbow Room and it can be seen on the HOH spyscreen, though maybe not til BB decides HOH can get that channel.. Actually that could be a very cool twist: if the HOH sees it and thinks WTF is that place, will s/he tell the others about it or not?
Arnie stepped into the glass-walled HOH shower and asked Julie "Is that enough privacy?" looking silly and seemingly forgetting how they hang towels on the glass shower doors - but ahhhh, since HOH bathroom is private, they may think that since other hamsters can't see 'em in there they can relax and get nekkid - we may have more nekkid hamsters this year than ever, with the added bonus of making us feel like creepy voyeurs if they believe they aren't being watched while we're watching
For all the new house hype, the camera angles don't look like they're gonna be all that
Obviously co-host Renée has never watched the show, as the main double shower made her nervous about co-ed showering: "Just one <whoosh> of the curtain (to pull it back) and there you have it!" Well Renée, hamsters are well known to shower in bathing suits for the most part (but see above possible season 6 HOH disclaimer).. A high point was co-host Charlie asking Julie afterward if everyone knows that everyone is a pair, since Julie forgot to mention that part in the piece (oops).. "No!" she said enthusiastically.. "Each of them thinks they're the only pair!
BTW editors, please note it didn't go over my head that the HG video snippets you included this morning were almost to a word the same ones I highlighted the other day.. I know it's early days, but I am keeping track of this stuff this year
Official word on the Official Blog from Yahoo news.. I am gonna guess the editors will take as many liberties with the HOH blog as they do for the air shows.. The article also reminds us that House Calls will start Friday and be on every weekday at 10am BB/1pm Eastern, Marcellas & Gretchen both returning
Comp creator interview Jym Buss is the guy behind all those zany comps and wacky apparatus - AOL's resident BB blog has the goods.. I see he doesn't mention the dreaded earthquake machine that prolly cost more than all the others combined and was only used about 15 minutes, even when asked which comps went awry of their original intentions.. he also says this is the smartest cast ever - we'll see about that soon enough
7/4/05 - Hamster trading cards
Before you read on Remember you heard it here first - if you launch BB houseguest trading cards, you owe me a chunk of the profits cuz I thought of it before you did
Apparently Janelle is more of a star than we thought - she's featured on several Benchwarmer cards (kinda like baseball or Pokemon cards, but with bikinis).. She must be pretty good too, she went from Rookie to All-American in just a couple years.. In the latest ad she says she's gonna bring "100 pounds of clothes into the house" - it doesn't look like she wears more than a couple ounces at a time
Newsflash I am "investing" in a few of these.. I doubt they'll make me rich but I hope she stays long enough to be a little famous.. if not I'll prolly have a giveaway here at some point, trivia game or something.. maybe I'll do that anyway - hope I can give 'em away
It's ok, Maggie knows heimlich
E!'s house tour shows they have a gumball machine in there this year.. why? All I can think of is that movie Jawbreaker which in turn makes me think of that book Dead Famous about a murder inside a Big Brother house.. I guess this is a bit morbid but you gotta admit it's kinda fun to think about
Here's the happy group at FOTH - they won't be smiling like this for long.. Big Brother Link has posted a few more shots, including the one when the director said "Ok, act animated and goony now"
Forget the Early Show - They can't get their schedule hammered out for beans.. wait til it airs and catch a web replay
I missed this one but Aldav didn't - I guess Ashlea is confident enough about winning BB that she gave up her shot at a $10k prize plus $10k modeling contract - she entered the SportCrew sorority model of the year contest but finals are in August.. or maybe she figured she'd be out by then and can do both
It seems our Beau (real name: Bradley Milton Beasley II) is quite a Miami club & party scene fixture - here he is at The Cafeteria, where he apparently is, in fact, the marketing director - which means he sets up party events there, I guess - from Miami New Times
He doesn't seem to have done a supergreat job of promoting the place - it has no website and just a couple posted reviews - I guess it's a word o' mouth kinda scene.. here's the menu.. Apparently he left his last club promotion gig cuz the place "wasn't doing so well".. heh, do the math
7/4/05 - Giddy with anticipation
Early Show BB preview is scheduled again, this time for Tuesday morning - will Drew & Diane show, or was that yet another factless rumor?
Test hamster report Producers hired some lab hamsters to stay in the house last week, like new hotels do, to make sure it's habitable and to do a couple comp run-throughs.. The best news? Nothing is soundproof! Read more from RealityNewsLive
Nothing's going on, nothing to do but wait, and reminisce.. remember when Big Brother spent a couple days electrocuting them? That was a fun day: Drew learned to forage his own food, Marvin got a touch-up, BBQ Smackdown began with Part 1 The Initiation, Adria set off the end-game, and Diane had her first major fall/rebound/fall cycle - those were the days! We can only hope we get as much amusement from this new batch
Just a few days to go - take this time to pay your bills, do laundry, run errands.. everything you'll want to delay doing in a few days
Is this Michael's blog? It claims to be the Official BB6 Blog and that BB is letting him post to it from sequester - both claims sound ludicrous - but if someone is doing it to punk us all, they are doing a good job of it: it links to two genuine Michael-affiliated domains, one of which takes a bit of digging to verify.. hmmm.. the writing style is different than Michael's auto-bio (pack a lunch) but the first entries are June 26 - he wasn't announced til June 29.. if it's a hoax (likely) it's a good one, and fun reading
How are they gonna deal with Ivette's diabetes, if in fact she has it? Surveys say she is newly diagnosed - if so, it's likely Type 2 which everyone and their cousin seems to have lately.. it isn't as serious as Type 1, but a PB&J diet would still be bad news, as would many BB grocery lists
What about Kaysar's 5 times daily prayer? I guess we can write him off for any endurance comps, but if he gets special allowances like alarm clocks or being excused from group outings to face Mecca, we are gonna have problems
Rumors are already on that James is gonna jihad just cuz Kaysar is Iraqi - throw in special treatment for his religion and it could happen
Come to think of it, nobody else has mentioned faith or Bibles yet.. I have nothing against anyone having any religion, but I don't watch these guys to hear scripture - there are other venues for that - but if Kaysar's faith gets him special treatment from BB then it's just a matter of time til the Baptist hamster can't participate on Sundays, the Jewish hamster can't play on Saturdays, and the wiccan hamster will get extra personal item allowances so they can bring in their altar & crystals
Who's that guy Maggie left behind? She might be technically single, but that didn't look like a good-bye grab from a casual date or friend.. in fact, it looks like she left an established family home in the Las Vegas 'burbs - all that was missing from that video snippet was the 2.5 kids and dog
There is a story here
Ivette's blog lists among people she'd like to meet "papa in heaven, my baby, the judge who looked beyond my family's pain, the boy who i hope loses sleep over night for destroying my family..."
