What's up with Howie?
Here he's feeling up Beau, caressing his legs and commenting on their silky smoothness
Nobody knows quite what to make of Howie, but most agree - inside and outside the house - that he needs a class in remedial social skills asap
Rachel didn't use the veto, big surprise
Then Howie says how Janelle wouldn't even talk to him in the real world, and goes on to prove it by asking her when she started having orgasms - she doesn't want to talk about it, so he persists - Michael tries to get it on it, surprising everyone by asking Howie if he's travelled much
Thanks to Yahoo's site caching, HamsterWatch pre-season projections are back in place
Quadcam now has audio for all feeds - it freezes up a lot more and is like being in a beehive, but it's good for deciding where to go
Howie tells a joke - Sarah doesn't find it funny but James does.. hmm..
(about someone who's had a sex change) Did it hurt when they cut off your johnson? No. Did it hurt when they cut off your lower extremities, your ball sack? No. You're telling me you went from being a man to a woman and there was no pain at all? Yea, there was pain, when they cut out 80% of my brain
Inside they gorge on beer and chocolate, Dad takes out the trash, and Rachel TP's the house - I don't know
Team SoCal has a tete-a-tete in the cot room.. they're joined by Eric, and then Howie who tries to follow
No Mixed Messages Here Department:
Jennifer reaches for Michael again.. Ashlea sends Ivette a not-so-subtle note via her shirt.. Eric tells Michael the girls are fed up with his grabby hands - Michael's surprised
More casting screwups:
Flying hamsters! Ivette, Rachel, and April do cartwheels but nothing here is without mishaps.. Howie gets a boner.. Where's Jennifer? Finally something she could play
Beau knows fashion
They decide to dress for dinner since it's their first together - all PB&J bets are off
It's a flurry of clothes and skin and hair flying everywhere - some need more help than others.. Beau is happy to pitch in, and does a good job - truth in advertising for him, anyway
Eric's cooking.. hey, is he using Wendy's chili recipe??
The Friends for Life alliance (© attw x) eats fast and all scatter to their corners.. Kaysar hones in on Sarah who talks about her "last boyfriend" who cheated on her.. he reads her self esteem issues loud 'n clear and even shines a spotlight on them
Kaysar: Why did he cheat on you?
Sarah (after a long pause): He said I wasn't a good enough girlfriend
Kaysar: And you believed that?
Sarah: I dunno.. I was young
dingo: I'll wager she's talking about James here.. they let some clues slip last night that they'd had these kinds of 'troubles' in the past
We get teasingly close to a girlfight but Janelle & Ivette just toss a few barbs and both back off.. Maggie tries to stir it up but Ivette's umm.. distracted.. Eric models today's jammies
Howie comes into the pimp room hoping for a threesome with Janelle & Ashlea, but instead they talk game to him.. his confusion is clear, but they offer to sleep in the same bed with him for two weeks if he helps Ashlea stay - that he understands
Hamsters are now using the term Surfboard Alliance - DR is stealing my stuff again
Pray for the fishies
Sarah points out which ones are sick, which means we're in for another round of which people are evil if they don't pray for sick fishies.. do they really think BB is rushing the lil yellow guys out to the fishie emergency room?
Next thing you know it's an outside lockdown at 11.30pm to scoop 'em out
April makes her tattling rounds, prefacing each convo with "I wish I wasn't involved in all this".. when she gets to Rachel and HOH she asks about the spyscreen.. Rachel says she sees no purpose in it, but "It's kinda cool to watch the fish" - which means Howie is the brains of that pair, heaven help them
Outside lockdown drags on.. Kaysar tutors Janelle about the game ("pick off the weak first").. Howie tells loud, elaborate, raunchy, bad jokes to the others - Eric's reaction speaks for all
The penny drops
Kaysar & Janelle stay outside chatting after the others go in.. they are almost flirting but each holding back, hesitant to go there.. it's a nice convo anyway.. Ashlea joins them and they all compare a few more notes.. Janelle & Ashlea tell him about discrepancies in others' stories, particularly Beau & Ivette, and he has a sudden realization about the full extent of the twist
"How could I be so stupid?" He heads off to tell Michael - which the feedmasters keep from us - then he goes back outside and explains the implications to Janelle, Ashlea, and Howie who's joined them of Beau & Ivette being a pair, and how that's the twist this year.. none of them are admitting they are also also in a pair
Perhaps a new alliance is born: the Unlikely Avengers
The only problem is one of them is going home this week for sure
Gems o' the day:
April: Shift your package.. That's gross.. You can like see the shape
Eric: What? I have a penis. It's not my fault I'm hung like a wild field mouse in a snow storm
thanks to seeley for catching this one
Janelle, after Kaysar gave her kudos for sussing the situation: Holy fuck, I'm not dumb!
Kaysar: You're a good man Howie, even though you talk about boobies and butts all day
Overnight update Michael got up to pee as Kaysar was finishing his prayers (4am) - Kaysar filled him in and we got damn fishies cuz they want that for the damn show, damn them!
Michael slipped some through between bubbles that he saw Eric and James at the hotel and knew they were going to be here, and they started tying a few people together.. Michael woke up enough to listen to Kaysar and take him seriously, saying "I trust you with this"
So it's all outta the bag now - everything from here on out depends on Thursday's HOH comp, and at least now Ivette will have a reason to hate Janelle
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
