>> Ivette is Head of Household - Howie & April are nominated <<
Coming & going
They're being called to Diary one after another, recording farewells that may or may not air and whatever else they do in there
The coven dynamics are pretty interesting for a change, and may or may not be showing us something between the lines: Ivette's very quiet and gloomy, almost half asleep when it's just her & April.. minutes later when it's just Ivette & Maggie, Ivette's smiling, perky and interested - almost as if she's flirting, and it works: Maggie's chipper & chattier than ever.. Ivette is thoroughly intrigued or faking it well.. when it's April, it's snippy comments or just silence all around
As usual, there's no end of the kind of stuff that just makes you roll your eyes, or worse.. they continue hashing over the game history, changing it to suit their needs, justifying their noms & votes thus far
Maggie (to Ivette): You can't buy into Palo Alto, you have to be born in Palo Alto
April (joining): I got cramps
April: Matt NEVER gets pissed at anything.. but when he does, whooo!!
April: I LOVE Julie! Like her little face? She's just so cute & huggable.. I love Asians
April (about Ivette): She's kind of in a sad mood huh?
Maggie: She is??
April (to Ivette): You don't look good.. tired or something
Maggie: Ashlea was lucky cuz hers wasn't personal
In spite of all her talk so far, Maggie's finally admitting without actually saying so what we all know: that all her choices since the first week have been entirely personal
Ivette spares us some of the misery by silently playing with a fuzzball for awhile.. the cameras play along and follow it as it rolls & floats away.. it's a happier wakeup scene in the pimp room, as usual.. when Howie joins the patio group the atmosphere equalizes a bit.. they keep talking game and about James.. they tell him some of reasons they didn't like Janelle early on & since.. when he goes off to Diary a possible slip-up gives us all kinds of hope
April: He really feared James, didn't he?
Maggie: Big time!
April: He's scared shitless of him
Maggie: I think he's proud that James left before him.. not that he's leaving now but that he.. you know?
April: What do you mean, not that he's leaving now? His fucking ass is leaving now!
Maggie: No.. what I'm saying is he's not upset that he's leaving now, he's happy that James left before him
April: Oh.. yea yea yea yea yea
Howie makes himself a nice breakfast of eggs/eggbeaters, microwave bacon, bagel, chocolate milk.. juggling it all to take outside the bagel flies.. awww poor Howie
Janelle comes out and looks like she's headed for a real bad hair day, but she rebounds as always, enough to have friendly (sounding) chats with Ivette and Maggie both.. when they go off to play HOH camera, she heads back to training
Things we do & don't want to see
Camera day again, as if there aren't enough snaps of them floating around the internet already.. these are the Thanksgiving pics though: the ones that give the illusion of a big happy family, even though everybody knows the real truth
Howie & April pose for my favorite - hopefully a prophetic shot
They start with boobies pokes and boobies grabs.. they check them and say "that looks a little porno - erase it" and go back to the same ol' flying onto the bed and pics of pics
More pics of pics - same thing every week - the smiles turn on & off like switches.. April's not a happy camper between flashes
Fun moves to the bathroom "sit on the can Howie!" of course he does, he's a good sport like that.. they love it.. I bet they don't realize we've got a similar shot of April, or that CBS aired it
Costumes, props & dramatics, then Janelle joins and Maggie starts muttering.. they move downstairs for light saber duel shots
Close, close smiles here & there.. Janelle asks to pose with Ivette for this one, then buxoms it up for a Boobies Coasters shot
Maggie: I can't believe you took a picture with her
Ivette: She said 'let's take a picture and pretend we like each other'
Maggie: I just find it funny that you would agree to take a picture with her
Maggie: She never once asked me
They squeal as morphed photos appear on the wall.. more of the same
Janelle snaps some shots for them and says "cute" after each, like she does.. the smiles disappear quickly and they go back to trashing her.. she doesn't care, she's inside studying the new pics just in case
More smiles and touchy feely poses come & go
When Ivette goes to do her blog the camera goes too - the smiles are good & gone now and it's only bitterness & ongoing hatred outside.. in the pimp room Howie & Janelle remain optimistic and focused
The good, the bad, and the ugly
Maggie: "I don't like things not to be addressed when they bother me"
She might change her stand on that when she gets out of there
Title inspired by Aldav goes Clint
Evening quads check-in shows silent laundry & living room for a long time.. it's actually a relief.. downstairs/upstairs comparisons later show studying versus cackling about sex, and studying versus bicuriosity in HOH & in jail, and Ivette's brother in prison.. I've reached my personal quota again
Maggie: Do you think people in prisons turn gay?
Ivette: I hope not
Maggie: Oop I didn't think about.. wait.. you make it sound like being gay is bad?
Today's videos These links will launch your RealPlayer - it may take a few seconds
Early stuff Jennifer told Beau she had a crush on Michael the first night (this was followed by much defending of Jenn by April who claims it's news to her, but it confirms my Jennifer theory from way back then.. I never considered her "under the radar")
Porn princess Maggie & April bitch about Janelle's fans (2nd half has nothing)
One day out The coven talks about Ivette's brother in jail.. Maggie makes a prophetic comment about the new America's Choice coming up (that she won't win)
Last duel 1 Howie & Janelle have a (possibly) final light saber duel, and it's a doozy
Last duel 2 Continued.. they get quite a workout
Howie & Janey goodbye This one's sweet, and kinda sad (he does jerk it later)

Kaysar will be on 'Young & Restless' Oct. 5 (probable date-no guarantees)
The CBS site has now failed to acknowledge two Team Jedi HOH tenancies other than in passing: no blog, no pics, no Julie Q&A.. coincidence?
The new America's Choice will send Janelle on a field trip down the street to visit a CBS sitcom set & taping. Once they see her, they'll probably put her in a scene.. let's hope it doesn't kill her last chances game-wise.
They're watching the wrong house again so I'll watch the wrong show.
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
Her time on the block has really disappointed me after all the angst we've seen from her before it finally happened. She's a little paranoid and a little pissy but she's provided nothing of the drama queen deluxe that we've been promised for over two months. She continues to make as many faux pas's & Freudian slips as she misses, but it's not enough. I won't give up hope that she's the one going tomorrow until Julie says so, but April's the one who's set us up all season to expect the unexpected every Thursday and then everything turns out completely as planned anyway. She's been in on every backdoor so far so she deserves to go out that way too.. I know, I'm in denial.. please don't burst my bubble. I need her gone.
I sure hope this isn't his last day & night in there, cuz when he goes all the fun goes out with him. He's been one of the biggest and best surprises we've had this year: the arrogant idiot turned out to be more of an idiot savant, and the only one out of 14 whose sense of humor runs 24/7: he's far more reliable than the feeds. I don't mind his sex chat but many do, and let's face it: when he gets going on that stuff he's well over the top. It's a wonder - and it says a lot about his character & personality - that his over-detailed XXX mouth didn't make him the most-hated hamster inside and outside the house, but there you are: that's our Howie. I'm still hoping he's up here where he belongs tomorrow and not down below with the empty-cagers.
HEAD of HOUSEHOLD
I've totally given up trying to figure out what she says or does. She's like James: I don't think I believe a single word that comes out of her mouth to anyone including Diary, since she's forever contradicting herself depending who she's talking to. She can almost be fun to listen to once in awhile, but it's so rare and the rest of her stuff is so vile & hateful that the fun stuff doesn't count at all. She's the definition of 'over the line' and the only thing that will make me happy over the next week or so is an open power struggle between her & Maggie.. I'm pretty sure Ivette's been the one pulling Maggie's strings all along and I'd be rooting for Ivette if they go toe-to-toe (this time only).
She's got to win HOH tomorrow, that's all there is to it - then she can give us the Kill Bill rampaging finish we all need. She's the star of the show and everyone knows it, including them, and we can only hope the producers & editors have been simply doing their usual misdirection by alternately ignoring her and painting her as the villain all this time. Her enemies hate her for no real reason and it's amazing how easily that hatred feeds on itself as soon as they think of her.. it's real sad too, and says way more about them than it does about her. C'mon Jedi Janey, we need a happy ending here and only you can give it to us!
Hateful, petty, mean, secretive, sneaky, and sanctimonious.. she's a self righteous cow who brings a whole new meaning to the word hypocrite. She's spent most of the last month thinking she's in charge and that's only cuz she's Eric's widow game-wise: I think she's dumb as a rock and most of Ivette's Cappylove is just a show to stay on her good side. If Howie goes tomorrow and/or if Janelle doesn't win HOH I won't be able to bear watching her much at all. Her ignorance of the show, the feeds, and her failure to read her contract is clearer every day: today she set up her parents & grandparents for visits and/or stalkings by detailing just about everything about them but their social security numbers.
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.
|I love keeping tabs on the feeds during summer, and wish I didn't have to do this.. but the reality is it takes a ton of time that I can't really afford to give away.

Please support other BB6 fan sites that you like, too - many many thanks!|
|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|
