Back at the habitat it's getting uglier than ever.. Maggie, Ivette & April can't believe anyone else does laundry, then they start calling out for help to characters on an NBC show.. Maggie puts an end to the fun
Maggie: Why are there sheets out here??
April: I think they're probably Howie's whack-off sheets.. I just threw 'em on top of Janelle's clothes
(Maggie rolls her eyes)
April (shouting): HELLOOOO?? WE'RE TRAPPED!!!
Maggie: Don't yell 'help'
Ivette: Nobody can hear you, it's a fucking tv set
April: WILL!! GRACE!! SAVE US!!! JACK!!!!
Howie & Janelle continue to train and inspire each other.. she makes a tuna melt, cleans up after, and washes the dishes as usual, despite what the coven says
The Unholy Trinity moves to the hammock where they begin a day-long obsession about Janelle's pubes.. they complain when Howie comes outside to work out "he always follows us" "so does Janelle.. so did Rachel" (uhh so did April, so did Jennifer)
Maggie: In a country school it doesn't matter what you wear
Maggie: Nobody in a small school is concerned about clothes, neither the cool kids or the nerds.. it's not like a city school
Maggie: I wore pajamas to school, it just didn't matter
Howie quizzes Janelle as she does crunches.. she's knows every detail he throws at her, and she's quick.. I can't help but think of Uma & Pai Mei.. the others study too but they're only catching up to where Janelle was several weeks ago
I love Howie but can't give him enough credit to play Pai Mei or even Hattori Hanzo..
but he's got some of each in him, especially at times likes this
Janelle goes for a leftover McDonald's burger.. it's beyond unappetizing and not much better than what Uma got during training.. she picks out bits and eats what she can
Howie & his light saber chat with the coven, giving up too much info about his & Janelle's study sessions and her knowledge.. Ivette plays peekaboo for some reason.. the three of them sneak into the pimp room to study it: they ask about three questions and spend more time arguing over whose turn it is to ask & answer
Later Ivette says she'll sneak in there tonight and hide under the bed to spy and listen to Howie & Janelle - Morality Maggie thinks it's a great idea - they take another field trip downstairs to scope out other possible hidey places.. I'm not sure what Ivette's wearing but it's ironic they call Janelle "whore" and "slut" considering this outfit.. the cam zooms in so I know it's not just me wondering
Ivette offers to help Howie pack tomorrow.. he finds James' lucky veto shorts ("fat lotta good those did me!").. he entertains the coven awhile & later Janelle, like he does
For some reason Ivette & April hang out downstairs and hold a major Q&A about Janelle's pubes while she showers.. of course Howie likes that.. April rushes up to report & embellish to Maggie, also showering.. they delude themselves more about what we see and what we don't.. of course it's Janelle's fault there's no more hot water
April: She's used to getting it waxed and I said 'if you plan to have sex with Michael on wrap party night, don't you think that's gonna be a little fucking nasty for him?'
Maggie: Oh god, did you say that?
April: Yes, she said 'no I'm gonna shave it'
Maggie: Oh my god so she is planning on having sex with him
April: Uh huh
Maggie: So that tells America you have to know her for a total of one week
April: Yea but apparently America's not seeing what we're seeing
Maggie & April continue trashing Janelle, but Ivette lingers too long with the enemy and they get suspicious & paranoid.. Morality Maggie listens at the door
April: Do you think Ivette would strike a deal with Janelle?
Maggie: If you want my honest opinion then you're gonna get mad at me
Howie, Janelle & Ivette invent a new game
Howie loves it naturally, and Janelle & Ivette don't seem to mind.. Maggie & April watch on the spyscreen and act disgusted
When Ivette returns they launch into more Janelle trashing.. Aprils gets weird
Ivette entertains & educates April & Maggie on genital cleansing ("a Latin custom"), bidets, and "the cup method".. they're fascinated and can't get enough.. Ivette goes on to discuss her mom's underwear buying habits, her grandmother's sex life, and other stuff nobody wants to know about.. this crew isn't even fun to laugh at
BBQ 2005 Smackdown II: Silent Showdown
Howie pauses on his Jedi rounds tonight to stare down the undefeated monster for a moment, then moves on
Normally this wouldn't even qualify as a BBQ Smackdown event, but after it lashed out so ferociously at Ivette we might not have much more this year.. this could be the season finale
Today's videos These links will launch your RealPlayer - it may take a few seconds.. again, these are mostly to preserve the hypocrisy.. I'll try to get more fun ones soon - it isn't easy
Janelle's Pubes April sets off the coven's obsession for the day, and a booger question
Wipe them out Howie inspires Janelle to fulfill her destiny and wipe them all out
Training duel Howie & Janelle have a practice duel with fancy footwork & injury
HidingPlans Ivette & Maggie hatch a plot for Ivette to spy on Howie & Janelle
Favors April wonders if she owes Janelle a favor.. Maggie doesn't
Boobies Coasters Howie plays a new game with Janelle & Ivette
It felt really good Ivette returns from Boobies Coasters, they trash Janelle and put words in Michael's & his parents' mouths.. April makes a very odd comment
Tickle April & Maggie do their weird touchy-feely ritual; all three discuss peeing

Tarantino should take over the show: CBS editors are watching the wrong house again.
Tuesday's show was fantastic! I was glad they countered Ivette's complaint about Howie eating her Reese's Pieces with segments showing how he shared all his HOH snacks (twice) and James taking out the toy car from Howie's last HOH cereal box & even appying its decals! It wasn't nice of them to air Janelle's comment about Ivette's girlfriend, especially after the 'Housecalls' where producers Wollman and/or Shapiro said they focus on the game for the show and not personal stuff (in response to a question about Ivette's non-aired racist Kaysar=Osama comments), but at least they started showing some of the coven's late night hate speech in HOH.. about time! It's been a slow couple of days in the house so I'm glad they spent 10 minutes on the recycled morphomatic comp, and I'm pleased they were still able to fit in the other key events: Ivette getting fried by the barbecue, Maggie shouting 'Fuck Julie!' and April's endless nose picking, along with their group 'tickling', constant 'Janelle's a whore' and endless cooter-coochy-roast beef chat. It was nice to see them show the sore losers lament that Janelle won the veto by cheating and having sex with the producers. At least they showed Janelle in a mostly positive light this time and didn't dwell on Ivette's 'you manipulated the men in this house' comment too much. zzzzz
Another day of her sweating possible eviction had some odd results - most of them seemed to center around Janelle's pubic hair. Ivette's been showing signs that she may give her a surprise boot on Thursday.. maybe that's just wishful thinking but it's all I got. She's a shoe-in for the deadly schoolgirl and her mace: generally cold, brutal & effective behind her innocent-looking exterior, but no match for our heroine.
Howie spent most of the day helping Janelle study, almost to the point of obsession. He talked too much about the game's past stats and Janelle's knowledge of them to their enemies, but that's Howie. I'm not totally happy with him as Bill but it's the best I can do - he's good, but he's not Pai Mei. Whatever happens, he fits as the guide who's ultimately bested by the student, and their longtime partnership is in place. I guess in the end Janelle would have to take him out to triumph but it wouldn't be for revenge.
HEAD of HOUSEHOLD
Who else but Lucy Liu's O-Ren Ishii, the constant & ruthless rival with an army behind her? She's got the power, she's got the skill, and she's got the following but ultimately she's left on her own to face our heroine. It's a close battle and a bloody one, but in the end she falls. I'm not writing off the possibility yet that Ivette will turn on one of her weaker soldiers (April) by evicting her to demonstrate her authority and to further her own career & reputation.. it'd be nicer than lopping her head off anyway. Ivette keeps telling her teamies she can't possibly win anymore, but she said in Diary that she 'would win hands down against Janelle or Howie.' Like O-Ren, Ivette hasn't let on a lot of her strategy all along, even to her inner circle.
She showed today that she's got the skills, knowledge & dedication to pull it off but will her drive & resolve remain if/when she's alone there with the Unholy Trinity? Let's hope so. She's come this far despite unbeatable numbers and like Uma's Bride, she's continually beaten the odds stacked against her and has dedicated herself to her training with a single objective in mind. She's stealthy, constantly underestimated by her enemies, and only temporarily distracted by emotional ties. She's got nearly everyone pulling for her and those who aren't are likely the ones who just like to root for the villains, and that's fine. Like Uma, Janelle just rocks, plain and simple.
Her constant Janelle-hating comments today don't even bear repeating, but she let slip why she hates her so much perhaps when she was talking about wearing pajamas to school and how it 'didn't matter' although she made a point of mentioning there were 'cool kids and nerds' at this school where such things didn't matter.. hmmm. I don't think Maggie's near the adversary Daryl Hannah was but you can't overlook the nurse uniform, the one-eyed lack of depth perception, or Daryl's character's name Elle Driver. These two end up having some of the fiercest battles but a battered & seemingly beaten Black Mamba takes out California Mountain Snake in the end.
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|
