>> Janelle is Head of Household - Maggie & April are nominated <<
Ivette came out of her pout to fight with April for an hour or so Sunday morning - see the video, linked below
I've watched it all now and I have to say Ivette is right in what she says throughout: she's combative & obnoxious, but she's accurate as far as what she knows about anyway.. April says several times she's done wrong things but never states what, and when she's confronted with questions she still lies to cover up her guilt.. Maggie, for all her supposed "leadership" sits for more than an hour barely saying a word while her teamies tear each other apart.. where's the leadership in that?? Ivette asks her for confirmation of something at one point and Maggie stutters & shrugs - even Ivette says "oh you're staying out of it" and that's the only time Maggie reacts at all: she puts her hands up and cringes cuz she's finally busted for being a nothing.. but she doesn't excuse herself and leave so they can go at it either: she stays there to maintain her supposed neutrality, i.e. her cowardice and unwillingness to take a stand on anything except their agreed-upon target Janelle.. and their hatred for her is all based on Janelle's "friend" April's lies too.. Maggie has the gall then, after one solid hour of them ripping each other to shreds, to say that they're all so freaking great cuz of how they've treated each other.. ok, rant over
Like all girlfights in cheap B-movies, it eventually evolved into bikini hour
Ivette used the veto, removed herself from the block and put up April
Once the fight's over it's safe for Maggie to take an authoritative peacemaker role and comfort Ivette, who's back into her pout-a-thon
Yea, so I don't want to resort to a page of bikini pics, but these eejits don't leave me much choice - let the cheap shots fall where they may, it all happened: April hangs on to her boobies, then discovers "something moving down there" in her crotch.. Maggie's playing peacemaker again between the two former fighters but there's no need: Ivette's well past pout and into sullen, silent mope by now
Maggie happens to notice something on April's butt "Is that a hole?" no it's just a burn, or something.. they get back to how horny they are.. Maggie says "I want a full body massage with Davida's peepee" like we needed to know that.. when they settle back down for more ultraviolet, Ivette's reversed herself.. she still isn't saying anything
Yesterday when Janelle suggested tic-tac-toe Maggie didn't think much of the idea, but today she decides it's fine and makes a board out of tinfoil & modeling clay.. she seems to have a knowing look as she plays April, like she knows "the trick" but isn't saying so
Pouty Ivette joins in the hot tub fun.. Maggie tells fun stories about checking the time without a watch before her words turn to vapor.. April practices for her Exorcist role
Yea I'm on snark overload.. and I'm not apologizing for it
Janelle did wander downstairs during the fight, but she's mostly keeping to herself, oblivious to all the drama.. she comes down for some ice cream while the three witches sit in their cauldron, then heads back to sanctuary
BB6: the nachos season
It's always kinda fun to take screencaps of food close-ups.. I don't know why.. maybe cuz food is one of the only things that counteracts all the negativity in there.. and it's colorful
They all have a special way of preparing them, and they don't even bother with sharing anymore - everyone makes their own
Janelle joins and they play tinfoil tic-tac-toe while they wait for the cheese to melt
Maggie picks at her butt while checking the oven.. where's Ivette? uh oh.. she's on another passive-aggressive cleaning binge, this time she's scrubbing the shower like April said she was going to do.. April brings up colonoscopies over nachos, which leads to colonics chat.. Ivette joins them and enjoys the meal, sort of
Ivette goes off to squeeze some zits and take a shower.. Maggie follows suit and tries to mend whatever bridge has been broken by hopping into the shower too, but nothing works.. Ivette's determined to stay miserable
Maggie finally gets Ivette to talk a bit.. she sobs that April hurt her feelings.. Maggie gets up mid-sob at one point to dry her hair - "with friends like that" etc.. outside April's telling Janelle & her boobies about the fight, April-style of course
What's this? Laughing, goofing, fun! April & Janelle play volleyball with no over-strict rules this time - April's even being funny! Janelle lets out a long, loud fart during a serve and runs inside, saying she sharted.. it's funny stuff - maybe you had to be there
She says later that she didn't really shart, but she was laughing so hard she peed a little
Of course April reports the incident to Maggie over a heated Snickers(?) It's a fascinating, gooey mess.. the camera guy is as mesmerized as we are as it oozes.. meanwhile Ivette just lies there, a silent lump
Janelle touches up her roots and joins the girls while she waits.. she keeps Maggie on her toes with quick comebacks to every snipe.. Maggie thinks Janelle is always BS'ing now, especially when she's not.. Ivette remains silent
Maggie: What are you drinking?
Janelle retreats upstairs to wash out her hair color and take a bath.. rule-follower Maggie defies Big Brother by peering through the windows even after Big Brother yells at her.. Ivette remains silent
Big Brother: Maggie, stop that
Big Brother: Maggie, stop that!
Big Brother: Maggie! Stop climbing!!
Maggie: Fuck off!!
Bedtime and Janelle shoots and scores during a chance kitchen meeting.. Maggie scuffs off to comfort Ivette but fails there too.. later she abandons her charge and climbs into bed with April who wraps her leg over Maggie.. there's talk of a bite and lots of shrill giggles before they settle down to whisper into the night
(Maggie joins April & Janelle in the kitchen, where they're laughing)
Maggie: What's so funny, did you fart?
Janelle: I just get with April and start laughing
Maggie: Whatever.. I'm not sleeping with you tonight
April: Me? Why not? We're just laughing
(Maggie heads out)
Janelle: There's no reason to get bent out of shape
Sunday's videos These links will launch your RealPlayer - it may take a few seconds.. the Catfight video down in linkage should launch Windows media player
Slumber party 1 April & Maggie cozy down, entwine limbs, get up, parannoy over Howie's whacks (April's the expert somehow) and see something
Slumber party 2 Headphones & equalizer settings needed for the convo, but that's not the disturbing part
Morality Maggie gets a clue
April's running around Saturday stressing on nasty things she's said in DR, what America thinks of her, etc.. Maggie finally wakes up from her stupor and says things like "I don't want to be picked to win cuz I'm the lesser of two evils".. from there she worries that her friends & family won't be proud of her.. I say let us count the ways
Way back on Day 1 Maggie - who claims to hold up loyalty higher than anything - pledged her allegiance to Janelle, James, Rachel, Sarah, Howie, and April.. hmmm only two of those are left - she voted out all the others - she nominated Janelle & James herself and has trashed them more than anyone.. that's Maggie for ya
I've been reminded that the Surf Alliance only promised each other 2 weeks.. ok ok, but it's still odd to me how hard she turned against most of them in that first night deal except April
It's this kind of stuff that disturbs me about her - along with the fact that CBS continues to edit her as the "good person" she claims to be - her hands remain clean as far as the air shows even when she's at her vilest.. the only conclusion I can draw is that CBS is still pushing their fireman hero campaign and she's second in line since their martyr fell.. Eric even had another memorial segment in tonight's show even though he's been gone 8 weeks
Left to right: Jonathan Littman, executive producer of "The Amazing Race"; Eric Littman; and Eric's brother Jay Littman, chef & power bar guy
I can't find anything definitive to prove or disprove that tv exec Jonathan is or isn't related to Eric, but it all smells a little more possible to me each day that Maggie's edited so favorably (TAR airs on CBS)
I missed most of the day and didn't pay much attention to the rest so it's a mini episode to combine with tomorrow's.. Ivette won the veto.. they play volleyball by Maggie's Rules.. one game and they're done
Maggie: You have be touching the towel to serve, and no spiking
Maggie: Because that's the rule
Ivette mopes about winning the veto and cuz April's spending time with Janelle.. she parks herself on a glass vase & communes with the shrine
Maggie comes "to check on her".. a single tear falls dramatically
Ivette: Finally I'm doing something unselfish and protecting myself? I'm feeling really guilty for winning something and protecting my ass
April seems resigned to leaving (odd but true) - she doesn't want to go to Sequester though, or finale or wrap party - she wants to go home.. she & Janelle spend hours going over the game history & all the players, April-style of course
April: Here's what kind of person Maggie is: earlier I was saying she might not have to shop for things on sale anymore, and later she said 'April please don't say those things about me anymore, it makes me feel uncomfortable'
That's April in a nutshell: she's asked not to repeat something and that's the first thing she does
She works on Maggie some too, pointing out how everything is seen & heard and what must people think of her (April) - she says she's said some nasty stuff in Diary.. Maggie says she hasn't, but she's looking a bit unnerved by all the reality checks
Even the crew's getting sloppy
We get some Diary slippage.. fishies come in late on taboo topics or music.. the crew has to be as sick of this bad soap opera as we are
I can't figure why April's spending so much time campaigning, unless she doesn't realize Ivette's the only one with a say now
Meanwhile Ivette says she's thinking of pulling a Marcellas and not vetoing herself off the block.. maybe she figures she's got no chance to win and getting bounced now would prevent further chances for her mouth to make it worse.. maybe she's reminded of how they called Janelle selfish for using the veto on herself last week
I don't really care.. they'll do what they do and I can't be bothered to predict any of them at this point - it's not fun in there at all.. here are a few random snippets du jour:
April (to Maggie): There are some things I don't agree with (that Janelle's done) like pulling at Jennifer, trying to get the key off her neck
Maggie: Yea, that was mean!
April: There is a reason America likes her.. I'm starting to believe her that she doesn't go into DR and trash people.. that's where I made my mist.. (she stops & changes the subject)
I don't know who made this animation or I'd credit them for it
Janelle (to April): Who do you think the biggest liar in the house was, besides James?
April: Liar? Umm let me brush my teeth
(she skirts the question after toothpaste)
April: I was never in on that whole sexual harassment stuff.. I never said anything about Michael like that, I didn't even know about any of it until he asked me about it
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
