>> Beau evicted 3-0 - Ivette is Head of Household <<
>> Howie & Janelle are nominated - Janelle won veto <<
That's that, maybe
Maggie won the veto, didn't use it, and Beau jetted off to near-paradise with James.. Janelle or Howie will obviously be nominated.. they have a good chance of winning veto but either way only one will be in the Final Four
I don't like to focus on Fair vs. Not Fair stuff, as Fair isn't necessarily a part of the game and definitely isn't what Big Brother was about (read the book) but I have to question the HOH comp this time: yes, each of the four players definitely knew the answer to one question - sounds fair - but BB is definitely aware of the team lines and that gave Maggie-April-Ivette a 3 to 1 advantage over Janelle.. there's Fair vs. Not Fair, and there's Right vs. Wrong (the fact that Janelle missed a Kaysar & a Howie question notwithstanding.. it's about principles)
Team Fireman Hero campaign continues, in my opinion
Feeds finally return around 11pm as they finish the veto comp - it's a rerun of last year's Morphomatic, Janelle's favorite from watching last year, and she's won it
We come in on her apologizing to Howie who, of course, is fine with it and wishes her power to the end
Obligatory insincere congratulations are made, and followed by the real deal from Howie
Ivette, April & Maggie rush to get upstairs.. they holler their good nights along with a couple catty comments accusing Janelle of having gone past being lucky to all-out cheating, with the producers' blessing
Ivette: Hey Janelle, let me know what the next competition is!
April: Maybe I'll win the next one.. I'm blonde too!
The feeds follow & stick with them upstairs as usual.. their paranoia, jealousy and viciousness knows no bounds.. Ivette & April get a bit manic in opposite directions.. between them all, they decide Janelle: is cheating, is cheating with producers' help, knows the producers, is a producer, is being favored for having sex with producers, plays better cuz she's watched prior seasons, and of course the ever-popular she's just pure evil
Maggie on why Janelle won morphomatic: She doesn't give a fuck about their personalities, cuz all she cares is what they look like
Maggie: She is the reason Howie's going home, but she'll never see it that way
April: I'm feeling guilty, I don't want y'all to think she'd take me to finals with her.. I know you aren't saying I am
Maggie: All she does is fuck with people
Janelle goes to Diary and they invite Howie up so he "won't be alone".. they tell him what a good sport he is, how sorry they are, how much better it would be if he were going to stay in there with them, and that some people are only there for the money.. he's shocked and says "Are you not playing to win? Who's not here playing to win??"
Ivette: Do you think the competitions are fixed?
Howie: I know they are!
(he goes on to say how they alternate but usually favor someone's abilities or knowledge)
After Howie leaves they go on to say how they will all use the money for charitable good, but that Janelle will spend it all on herself so she doesn't deserve to win.. they go on to say how they're not judgmental at all but that Janelle is "judgmental as shit".. Ivette says that Diary told her 2nd place after taxes is about $30k and would she be willing to settle for that? She says it like Diary implied Janelle was already the planned winner.. BB doesn't come on to say "Do not talk about Diary Room"
Later Janelle puts aside the "evil sources she taps into" (per Maggie) and enjoys a bowl of Trix with Howie.. they have fun reading the box.. it's just cute, especially after what they've been spewing upstairs
Jedi Howie fights off some foes in the backyard then secures the premises.. he's so into it.. it's pure and fun and what we need much more of in there
There isn't much more - it's a short night for feedsters - Howie reports back to Janelle what they told him upstairs, and suggests she try to get Ivette to side with her for a better chance at the end, bribing her with the Bahamas trip if needed.. the hate spewing and poison delusions continue upstairs
Today's videos These links will launch your RealPlayer - it may take a few seconds
She's still here! April & Ivette go a little berserk after Janelle wins veto
Undiagnosed Janelle won cuz she has a staring disease, and she climbs walls
Evict Ivette dance 1 April dances around the issue - it's all Janelle's fault now
Evict Ivette dance 2 More of the same, plus "poor little Sarah"
April nervousing She's tricky to follow when she gets like this
Sexual partner They're sending Howie for Beau? and Maggie gets another lame idea
Fans will boo April: Janelle knows the next secret; Maggie: she taps into evil sources
Poor Howie The coven loves him now and blame Janelle for his impending eviction
All safe Howie secures the premises Jedi-style

Meanwhile in New Orleans
The bloggers are still at it, and reporting some slightly better news, but that's not saying much.. these guys are my heroes this week and I have trouble putting much serious effort into the petty stuff going on in the hamster habitat.. it's so insignificant by comparison.. I will try to see it through to the end and very much appreciate all the support from Hamsterwatchers everywhere, but please remember to focus on the bigger picture too as we wind down our summer
This guy had a 2-3 hour nap and went right back to his monitor Saturday morning.. a convoy of buses & emergency vehicles came along Saturday afternoon.. early Sunday a couple fuel trucks came by - that has to be good news

Kaysar will be on 'Young & Restless' September 5 or October 5 (I heard October but this week makes more sense)
Resounding downs for another 36 hour feeds shutdown, for no reason. The show itself was average with the only good tidbits being April crying in her Diary (remember back when she DID NOT CARE?) and Holly hosting the veto comp. I always liked Holly (and I realize I'm in the minority) but I can't think of a better person to rattle the coven's cage than another buxom blonde, especially one who's as ditzy as they think Janelle is. It seemed mutual too, with Holly giving everyone a cute intro (Beau-bonic Supersonic, April showers May flowers, Janelle my sweetness, and Howie beefcake) except Ivette & Maggie: go Holly! Editors are chipping away at April & Ivette, very slowly & kindly compared to all they really say, but I can't fathom why they continue to hold Maggie separate and portray her as something holy: she's as bad as her minions if not worse. What's up with that?
She's nervousing bad again, talking a mile a minute and making not a lot of sense, most of it's a transparent attempt to prevent herself going up in Janelle's place as usual, and most of it's lies about Janelle as usual. It's tedious to listen to. One of her rants tonight was how Janelle shouldn't win any money cuz she won't do anything 'good' with it - this from the woman who whines about her credit card bills every few minutes and how much she needs to win to pay them off - when she's not claiming she DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE MONEY, that is.
Once again the epitome of good sportsmanship. He was happy for Janelle's veto win even if it means he's going to near-paradise, and he's ok with that. The HOH crowd even proclaimed him a good sport and blamed his imminent exit on Janelle, like they blame everything else on her. The only bit of fun tonight was watching him jedi his way around the backyard, securing the premises from evil.. unfortunately it's already inside.
HEAD of HOUSEHOLD
Maybe it's cuz she finally won her long-angst'd about first HOH but she's shifting to a different tactic: she still claims Janelle's evil with the 'worst soul' but she's starting to acknowledge that she's a real competitor and there isn't much they can do about it but try to beat her. She lets April & Maggie run wild with things such as Janelle having watched prior BBs being an unfair advantage when Ivette's also an acknowledged expert on them, but she doesn't let on that part. Same when they started speculating Janelle knew BB staffers & previous hamsters before going in: she forgot to mention that Beau's a good pal of Hardy's. Neutral only cuz she wasn't quite as hateful as usual tonight.
She won herself a last chance tonight, but wasn't able to celebrate much since it means she's sending her last remaining teamie and friend to Julie's boudoir. I'm worried about how she'll cope with the three of them hating on her and nobody that she can get away with after Thursday - if they weren't so damn vicious it wouldn't be a big deal. She's used to it though and she'll deal with it ok one way or another.
Funny that CBS airs her saying 'morals are a very unfortunate thing to have in this game' but they neglected to share her saying how she'll have to 'go back to shoveling shit out of patients' assholes' if she doesn't win. Morals indeed. She's careful about what she says even though she's clearly not aware we see & hear all, and a lot slips out that will come back to haunt Ms. Morality 2005. The more they continue to edit her as a saint, the more convinced I am that 'Amazing Race' producer Jonathan Littman is possibly a relative of her former pair Eric (who is not spelled with two N's by the way.) She said herself the other night when they were studying that Eric 'never said much about his other brother'. I'd love to be proven wrong on this one.. it would stink way too much if true.
As BB's double token he danced, he flashed, he puked and rode Ivette's jetstream. Not as fabulous as promised, and it doesn't seem right that he knows so many people that Janelle & Howie do, not to mention he's pals with BB2 Hardy. I thought he'd be this year's Cowboy at #2 but he won an HOH so he's gone.
He played a good game, saved himself too many times, and played both sides against each other instead of for himself. He wasn't a very nice boyfriend, and he was mostly dull with an excuse for everything. Arrogance was his undoing.
Half of the oddest pairing since Oscar & Felix, she did her best but went to bed too early to make it all happen. She's not the most fun hamster by a long shot, but she's one of the most decent and I wish her well.
She wanted to 'stir up the house like Kaysar did' but instead she stirred up everyone with a whopper of a lie to America's Choice, and she took out his partner with a huge lie of omission. So long Jenn and remember, roses really smell like poo poo.
America's Choice by 82% (at least) but he was out 4th and 6th. He turned the game on its ear, took out an emperor, and fell for Janelle overnights but was taken out by the cheerleader who took out his partner because she cried. He's a class act and did it all with brains, humor and integrity.
She was too young & too naive to be in there but held up well considering she played with the boyfriend from hell. I'm glad she got out early and alive.
Maybe the poorest loser in BB history but he gave us the best fight sequence. He said it nonstop but he never understood that 'it's just a game'.
Not blameless but not the villain they made him out to be either. He had funny voices, 'The Continental' and Janelle - plus the best hoax of the season.
There's never much to say about the first out except they're gone. She blabbed too much so she wouldn't have lasted long but she was fun while she was there.

|This site isn't necessarily about who should win, who will win, who I'd be friends with, or who is cute. It's about watching hamsters: which ones are doing what and why, which are fun and which are dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.. that dingo|
