|"Position the habitat of your hamster somewhere light and airy,
away from drafts, heaters, direct sunlight and other pets.
Never put it on or near a television, radio or hi-fi or a fridge."

>> Rachel is Head of Household - Kaysar & Ashlea are nominated <<
I thought I'd check in on them early to see what they do in the morning, since I've never done much pre-noon hamsterwatching
They're not doing anything
I want to poke a stick at them, tap on their glass, pick up their habitat and shake it
Ahh the bitching starts early: Rachel tells April there should be a rule "whoever is head of household, there shouldn't be a party outside their door after they go to bed" - April reacts appropriately, then counts how many fishies are sick today and applies first aid
Rachel fights the fridge.. James rolls out and tells about his dream "I was on this commando team, you were there but it wasn't you.. Beau was on the other team but he had dreadlocks" hmm.. Eric shows up and starts a monologue that goes on for days
Pretty soon it's a flurry of people, food, and chit-chat: hope they have something to do today, spanking kids (Eric did, James was), lots of food chat, gun chat, trailer trash people, everlasting Eric firehouse stories.. then someone mentions PETA - James goes off, reciting from his blog, and boom! Fastest fishies we ever had
Ok, now I know why I don't watch them in the morning.. yawn
Everybody outside for exercise class.. Eric's on the weights and drops one on his hand.. MEDIC!! Nurse Maggie to the rescue but Eric brushes her off "I'm fine, I'm fine.. owwwwmotherfucker I'm fine! If they'd open the gym this wouldn't happen, I'M FINE!!"
Rachel tells Maggie she's a hobby horse breeder, not profession (I predicted this, but didn't catch what she does do).. they compare who they like and don't - they say Ashlea & Janelle are so unhealthy (huh?).. Rachel adds "And I like Howie" She says she almost put up Eric "Cuz he's strong" - Maggie says "Yes, he is" too politely.. They encourage Jennifer to show her stuff (they think she's a full-fledged Broncos cheerleader)
Outside lockdown: yap yap yap all of them all at once, especially Eric, April & Ivette, especially Eric - he knows everything about everything.. James joins in, they both know everything about high profile murders, when they go to Jonbenet Ramsey we get fishies (Ramsey lawyers are better than CBS's) - we are glad to get the fishies, scoop and all
James takes a shower and shaves his pubes, belly, nips, and chest (remember Drew?)
he touches up missed spots afterward.. they really need to clean that bathroom mirror
Kaysar pumps up.. Janelle helps Maggie with her hair and she does a weird puppy-paws-up thing, automatically-like.. against all odds, Rachel turns into a hoochie-momma
Afternoon body count is a skin show: the cams do long, slow pans up & down bronzing bodies, zooming in on legs & feet, bellies, butts & boobs.. they cover every inch of Janelle in particular a few dozen times.. then Howie shows up
Post-nap chit chat and then sudden sugar rush when Eric (of all people?) notices - and points out to all - that Howie's got wood - they all see it, they all bust up, it's funny as hell.. even more so when Howie goes to the mirror to check
"You cannot let them see you sweat"
Yep, he said it
Game reporting gets so tedious because it all revolves around "we will win HOH this week".. the most unlikely person will prolly win it and all this becomes so much fishie poop, but there are some subtle shifts going on, and the fact that Eric said that.. it's just too funny
It goes something like this: Kaysar tells James that Beau & Ivette are trouble, he'll put them up when he's HOH; James tells the Harassment Alliance and they all praise Eric; Ivette tells the harassees that Kaysar is evil personified; Eric tells Kaysar he's in too thick with Michael & Janelle and threatens him with eviction; Kaysar's head blows up
Ivette: His religion says he can't lie but he's in here playing and lying all the time! So he's not religious at all!
Ivette: And you know what else? He doesn't even have a frickin' accent!
Ivette: And you know what else? He came to me, and he told me they clean up all the time - he doesn't clean up shit! He's a fucking sultan here!
James: No, that's Janelle
Ivette: Whenever we finish eating, the sultan, the psycho, and the princess go off together! They don't clean up shit!
Eric: I'm telling you, I've got the votes lined up right now, it's gonna be 10 to 1 but because of that conversation that took place, you were involved in it, about putting up Ivette & Beau, I'm telling you, it looks like you're grouped in with them, I'm telling you
Kaysar: Yea I know, I'm over that
(Eric tells him the Michael-Jennifer harassment/homicidal maniac story)
Eric: But obviously Michael's hanging on to this, and he's pissed at me for it!
Eric: Beau hangs around with some high class people, famous people, I know who they are - and she's a waitress! They can't be friends.. but Ashlea & Janelle, they come from the same modeling agency!
Kaysar: I know, it was just something that happened.. I'm over it now
Eric: You're playing this too emotional.. you cannot let them see you sweat!
It just keeps going - "trust me", you don't wanna know - much more amusing is Michael explaining Harassmentgate to Eric: he starts with the facts, he came in to pimp room and Jenn was upset, almost crying, about "other people" and then Eric came in - as it happened - then he puts on "The Continental" voice and proceeds to explain that he thinks like an adult ever since he was a child, he understands his thought processes and his thought processes are thus.. it goes on.. even Eric shuts up and tunes out
They gaze into the gym, lusting what they can't have
This morning April told Eric that she gets 'the big O' from one of the machines in there.. he was surprised but intrigued.. all eyes will be on her when it opens
I spared you last night when Howie was picking at and complaining about his gross feet ("everything else about me is great so a hot chick wouldn't mind") but tonight it gets real bad when Rachel & Jenn lovingly hack away for an hour at the manky crusts and blue-green moldy toenails.. look away
Michael tries to pull of Ashlea's shirt and they throw wet stuff at each other for awhile.. He tells Beau he's not part of any jibber jabber team and he's not going to jibber jabber; then he goes inside and tells the former-Harassment Alliance he's not part of any jibber jabber team and he's not going to jibber jabber; then he comes back out to Beau and says he told them he wasn't part of any jibber jabber team and he isn't going to jibber jabber
Later "The Continental" bonds with Ivette for awhile
Beau gets stung by a bee.. Rachel & Maggie look at the spyscreen but only half-heartedly.. Howie recites an inventory of his plastic surgery and dental work..
James & Sarah seem to be missing.. everybody else just keeps doing more of the same
Newsflash Confirmed: Howie and Rachel know each other - full story
[Howie] Gordon and [Rachel] Plencner had met through a mutual friend, Elkhart native Francine Lamble. Gordon had auditioned for 'Big Brother' after appearing on a previous reality show, 'Elimidate.'
'Rachel went out to the interview, but she initially had no intention of being on the show,' Gaddis said. 'When she was chosen, she really struggled with the decision. She didn't want to lose her job, and she didn't know if she wanted that kind of national exposure.'
Overnight update Kaysar and Janelle are still a go - they were keeping their distance all day and evening as a cover, and Kaysar is just pretending to go along with Eric.. he says he's just here to "fuck with their heads".. they still haven't gotten much past Beau & Ivette as far as pairings though and they're looking to Eric/James/Ivette as the power to conquer rather than focusing on their minions.. I think Ashlea is the first to play with the cameras, and now she's leaving
The TLC series - lots of extras
