>> James is Head of Household - Will & George are nominated <<
Bowling for kumquats
James is up early and wearing the HOH robe outside the HOH room
I think he's the first to do that this year
Boogie's the busy guy this morning, having a conference with James about nominations, and later whispering with Diane.. then they dutifully form their single-file parade and head out to the food comp
The current pricey apparatus looks impressive, but looks can be misleading.. they line up dutifully on their marks, and pair off to use a crossbar to drag a bowling ball crossbar up a ramp filled with holes to earn menu items for each day this week
Sounds exciting huh? Not so much.. they discover it works best to go very very slowly, with one person in each pair barking directions to the other.. James emcees
James/Erika earn a catered feast for Monday.. Boogie & Diane do the same for Tuesday (Boogie's directions include a lot of "balls" and "holes").. Will/Dani drop it so Wednesday is bread & kumquats - I don't know.. Howie/Kaysar get another feast for Thursday.. Janelle/Marcellas drop it and get vegetables & beer (I think) for Friday
Jase/George team up again like they did for slop and make it to the top, but the heat and effort do George in.. Jase/Boogie each go again (for today?).. in the end it's a slopless week, with booze
Watch the videos: Will/Danielle - also cures insomnia
Janelle/Marcellas - quad view shows how it works (note the back seat drivers for this pair - they didn't do that for anyone else)
Mirror-faces everywhere as they prep for nominations.. Janelle's back in the HOH bathroom putting on makeup with James.. Boogie & Jase get their looks just-so.. Will's sporting a tan now - Erika brought some in a bottle
Veggies & beer today: they tuck in happily.. well, George doesn't look too happy - maybe he knows what's coming.. Janelle notices Will's sudden tan
Jase shows them how to eat sweet corn Midwest-style.. Kaysar chomps an angry carrot - he's been moody & quiet since yesterday
At one point James, James & Will all talk about obsessed feedster fans, and agree that we are all frustrated hamsters who wish we were on the show
Utterly not so in my case at least - not a chance in hell
Jase [about casting George]: Well with Shapiro, they said 'George, are you gonna play?' And you know he broke down some strategy for them..
[cut to flames and WAY TOO LOUD music]
Marcellas: Like that first night the feeds went live, and we all had to say 'and that's the rule'
Janelle: You're not lying as much as you used to.. makes it so much easier
James: We are essentially the nerd herd of last season
Janelle: There were six nerd herders in sequester.. we don't have more than them this year, we have less
[talking about how Chilltown members get the cool kid clothes, hats etc]:
Boogie: Membership dues are 500 a year
Will: 500,000 every five years
[talking about BB5 Marvin and why he isn't there]:
Will: Do you keep in touch with him?
Will: Like did he talk about coming on here?
Jase: Well he would play it by the rules..
Jase: We talked in like February, and I asked 'Did you hear from them?' and he's like 'No, dog'
James: I was the one who told Maggie there were no internet cams in the HOH room
At one point Jase freely talks about Diary sessions regarding M/M Smith - watch the video
This one's clearly an intentional slip to follow up last night's leaks on the subject, since they didn't go to flames and WAY TOO LOUD music even though they were doing that frequently for singing & other topics at the time
Will on the block
The flames and WAY TOO LOUD music come to stay a good long time
When they eventually leave, Will & George are on the block, as expected
I've never seen James this happy in there.. Marcellas & Danielle, not so much.. Diane says she's glad she's not up again.. Willboogie, James & Jase laugh about the order of the keys and the look on George's face, then shush each other when he comes out
George comes out looking gloomy at first but then toasts Will, saying he's proud to be up there next to him.. Will's tan rinses off when he gets in the pool, causing a severe continuity problem for editors.. Will talks with Danielle about the BB "Yes Dear" episode and Will's missing residuals from it, plus the nominations a bit after George is called to Diary - watch the video
James & Howie start to discuss the nominations and realize Janelle's in the bed.. Kaysar joins.. it's their first meeting since all the others last night but it's the same ol' stuff: floaters, people under the bus, win the veto, who was the second vote for Nakomis, sequester numbers, etc etc etc - watch the video
They say if Will gets veto'd off they'll put up Boogie
George rebounds fine and starts stringing beads
They have a huge assortment of vegetables and start preparing them umpteen different ways.. Danielle takes over George's spot at the stove through some unspoken change of kitchen command
Will discovers a nifty slicer and starts sectioning potatoes & onions for deep-frying like crazy.. Diane joins him to chop.. she still seems unsure of herself, tentative - even defeated - not at all like the Diane we knew before
Throw us under a bus
I'm already tired of the BB7 catchphrase.. they're all saying it several times an hour now
Things are looking pretty bleak for feedsters once again, when James & Danielle discover half a liquor store in the pantry.. they pack up a crateful and cart it in.. unfortunately it doesn't turn out as well as it should
It starts off well enough: they're happy to see all the choices and mass quantities that have shown up.. they gather round and toast themselves, like they do
The potential for a hot time is huge as they sip & sip.. Janelle & Will kinda flirt with each other (each thinks they're playing the other so it's fun to watch).. even non-drinker Howie has a beer
They start to strip down and congregate at the hot tub.. oh yea, things are looking up tonight and it's about time too
Even before they're all gathered the feedmasters play a cruel trick on us and switch all four channels to James.. we know things are heating up at the hot tub one way or another, but all that is denied us for some reason.. instead we get James pontificating to Danielle about his wisdom as HOH and etc etc etc.. it's awful and goes on for days
Danielle: I honestly think the producers are bored with me this time
James: Really? Why?
Danielle: Cuz I'm not being so treacherous
She finally leaves and we think we'll finally get to visit the drunk tank but instead it's Erika's shift.. she drapes herself & her black bikini around and talks about James' girlfriend BB6 Sarah.. she also lets slip that she's done casting for "Survivor" (also on CBS) before the flames and WAY TOO LOUD music try to cover up that bit of apparent (or at least possible) bit of all-stars casting favoritism - watch the video
I've also heard she's done casting for 'The Amazing Race' (CBS again) but I don't have confirmation on that one.. that in turn leads to last year's never confirmed nor denied questions regarding hamster Eric Littman/Littmann and TAR's executive producer Jonathan Littman
By then the hot tub party's over and as often happens, there's suddenly too much action to follow.. it's clear we missed a lot in the last few hours though
Half of the super-sippy crowd shows up in HOH, where Janelle falls off the bed a couple times and bites Howie's arm, the girls discuss pubes removal in detail, and Howie blasts the usual mixed-company raunch limits wide open, like he does
Downstairs George is asleep on the floor.. Willboogie come in to bed, trashing Janelle as they go.. Jase joins and gets a sudden burst of energy that has him first addressing us with a nasty & explicit rant about her, then he breaks into an anti-Janelle rap that has Willboogie howling
Willboogie: Chicken Snores has become Chicken Floors
Willboogie: No one could be that dumb
Willboogie: That's why she's here.. twice
Kaysar reaches his limits upstairs and joins the guys in greenlight.. they change their subject matter but carry on.. Kaysar goes back up to tell them how funny the rappers are downstairs, and the girls all trudge down to join - it's all a CBS edit just waiting to happen.. Jase's rap is followed by George, who gets in a few good digs at James, then Danielle does her thing and is followed by Boogie, whose jammie pants she drops
Watch the videos - note they have very explicit content and will offend many.. remember too that we didn't see what inspired the Janelle stuff - she likes to play up the dumb blonde as much as she does the buxom
Jase's anti-Janelle rant/rap, part 1
Jase's anti-Janelle rap, part 2
Jase's farmboy rap (after Kaysar joins)
Jase's rap about the girls (after they've joined)
George's rap about James
Danielle's not-rap, and Boogie's finale
And on it goes.. the girls move it outside with Howie, Kaysar, and hookah.. Danielle seems especially sippy and raunchy/laughy.. they tease Kaysar about his crush on the outside and grill him for info about her, which he doesn't give up
Later they all wander off except Danielle who does her late-night kitchen sparkle rounds, studies the photo wall, then paces the backyard for a long time
She ends up burrowed into a non-camera area for quite awhile for (whatever).. when she comes out she paces the yard some more before finally tucking in
Tomorrow they play for veto, and I think they have a lot of booze left or are scheduled for more.. let's hope we don't get ripped off again
