>> Janelle is Head of Household - Maggie & Ivette are nominated <<
Same stuff, different day
Before nominations we find April in HOH making a plea to Janelle, who seems to be playing along with April but I suspect is just playing
The kicker of this convo is April saying how nice she's been all along, and suggesting Janelle "be honest with her nominations" - I guess she means like she was with James?
While the coven waits outside for Janelle to pick a key for the box, April retells it as Janelle having said "April, I really appreciate you being nice to me but now it has to be strategy".. crows keep cawing in the trees.. they sound just like these three but the crows are more interesting than the crones - the cameras switch to them for awhile - they go on to talk about how Janelle cheated during a comp and BB overlooked it
Fishies come & go and we spot the keybox waiting alone in the gym: did Janelle go off on her field trip and they'll just have to find it there and wonder what happened? Aww no such luck: fishies come & go again and the noms are done.. Janelle's making guacamole for all while tears well up in Ivette's eyes
Un-nominated April's feeling fine since her key was the one in the box, so she goes to pep-talk Ivette.. isn't it just like April to do it with a pound of meat in her lap?
April: What she said was actually really good: 'you are so good but you don't give yourself enough credit'
Ivette: I don't think I'm that good
April: You are
It's implied that Janelle didn't make such a statement to Maggie, which ticks her off
Cinderella goes off to the ball
The wicked stepsisters are consumed by jealousy
Janelle leaves around 4.30pm and they bitch & rant about it for a good 2-3 hours, led by Ivette of course but April & Maggie each make their fair share of contributions.. they blame everyone and everything except their own hateful behavior that Janelle has won another America's Choice
They make a few references to themselves as "jealous bitches" but it's caustic & sarcastic - they don't really see themselves that way.. eventually they're called into Diary en masse, and they stay in there for another couple of hours while the feeds give us blissful silence and an empty house, plus Ivette's HOH bunny (if he's made of velveteen the symbolism is too tragic for words)
When they finally come out they're subdued a bit.. maybe they were given a reality check of the much-needed and long overdue bitchslap type
Feeds return to Maggie & her BB bag: feedsters' hearts soar but it's a false alarm.. earlier she & April had set up a lawn volleyball court - Maggie was very specific about placing the out-of-bounds towels, so specific that setting it up took all their time and they barely played.. they do hit a few balls back & forth when released from Diary though, and then she's back!
(playing volleyball, before Janelle's return)
April: It's like I want to get out of here, but I don't.. it's like I'm going to get abused when I get out of here
April: I'm kinda scared to go back home
April: Aren't you?
Ivette: Why are you scared to go back home?
Maggie: Cuz of how we're portrayed
April: Yea, my neighbors, my co-workers.. that's horrible
They gather round asking what happened but it's obvious they aren't happy to hear it - it's a far cry from the reception Marvin got last year on his return from his AC field trip, and not just for his storytelling abilities - BB5 hamsters really were happy for him
Janelle tells them how she met the stars and got a full tour by the little kid on the show.. she got a shirt from Charlie Sheen that he signed.. she had photos taken (see today's links) and great food and a wonderful time, and people knew who she was!
She tells them Big Brother fans came (which they later claim is more staff cheating for her, when it's just fans who figured out when taping was and showed up).. it does them in when she says people shouted "We love you Janey!"
Ivette: What did they (fans) tell you?
Janelle: I can't tell you
Ivette: Were they screaming 'Janelle' though?
Maggie: They called you 'Janey'?
April decides they all must have fans, and adds that we feedsters are "psycho people"
After the ball
Maggie as Cartman by C=Venus - thanks!
She thinks she's got "authoritah" and so do a lot of others, but I think she's got about as much "authoritah" as Cartman does on his little tricycle.. she's got as many delusions of grandeur as he does too
Janelle focused on April & Ivette today, making Maggie paranoid even though she'd never admit it, and Ivette got her way by not sleeping in the pimp room like Maggie decreed she would.. sweet!
Janelle has a long friendly convo with April in the bathroom, with wine & beer respectively, which drives Maggie nuts.. later she joins Ivette & Maggie in the pimp room and has a long friendly convo with Ivette, which drives Maggie nuts.. it's only fair: Maggie's the only one of them who still hasn't made an effort to talk with Janelle as a human after 69 freaking days under the same roof
April assumes Janelle wants to take her to finals, and maybe she does, but by the 400th time April says "I have to win that veto tomorrow!" it tries even Janelle's patience
When Janelle joins Ivette & Maggie in the gold room, she tells story after story about her family, how she used to sing and play piano, clarinet, flute & piccolo.. how she wanted a grand piano and a horse named Goldie when she was little.. she talks about movies, books, how much she loves to read and always has.. it's fun & light and Ivette seems genuinely interested and not shopping for ammo like usual.. Maggie sulks through it all and doesn't say a word, until she bursts out laughing - even Ivette asks her "What the fuck are you laughing at?"
Later Maggie says she laughed cuz she didn't believe a word.. Ivette says it was evil of her, and that she enjoyed their conversation
Earlier as they took turns in Diary, April & Maggie decide they'll all sleep in the pimp room.. they know Ivette doesn't want to but they make up a bed for her anyway.. when Ivette discovers it she says no she won't sleep in there and she'd told them so, so they all move back to the cot room - April & Maggie share a bed again and do their creepy foreplay game they call "tickle".. they complain about the staff, like they do.. Maggie tells them all how great they are, what loving friends, what an awesome alliance and how much superior they are to that other alliance cuz they really care about each other, etc - the usual stuff.. Janelle retires to HOH, taps her foot to her CDs and smiles
April: I hate the rats in the DR
Maggie: They're assholes.. fuckers.. cocksuckers
