Morning sunshine

"I can't wait to feel the bones in your throat crushing between my fingers.. I fucking hate you"

Dick delivers another pre-comp outburst to Jen, again with several witnesses

He flips her off (figuratively - she'd already left).. when he leaves, he can be seen in the mirror looking down the hallway and raising his glass, sans finger.. I'm just saying

Cap is from video of the event caught by xx2000xx - see link o' the day below

A bit later Daniele wins the veto and everyone is all smiles again - even Dick - Kail & Amber are handcuffed together, and Jen has a new red catsuit

Veto prizes seem to have been a slop pass for Joe, a plasma TV for Dick, Kail & Amber handcuffed for 24 hours? (not sure) and Jen in a catsuit for a week? (not sure again, but more than a day).. the camera crew is already taking great advantage of that with many long, slow pans of her

Dick & Jen have it out in a long and mostly relaxed convo in the backyard.. several others try to come out but Dick sends them back inside.. by the end, he volunteers to stop calling her names

Jen: You got a cool tv, and I got a cool onesie
Dick: I've worked in bars as long as you've been alive
(not necessarily something to brag about, Dick)
Jen still doesn't defend herself or fight back thoughout the long convo, so I have to wonder where Dick's magnanimous wind-up offer comes from.. storyline maybe? Go ahead and scoff, but this looks like the start of a bridge to a possible future flirtfest

Joe seems a bit squirrely since the comp.. Kail & Amber go everywhere together now, like BFF.. Nick's getting around just about everywhere and working his way into every alliance in town

Joe [about cameras on him]: They're in a hammock chained together, and I'm more interesting smoking a cig??

The tension's broken for now and the afternoon carries on, with abs class and general chit-chat.. Dick seems much more relaxed than he was, and is getting around to new people and new subjects

Kail [about triplets in the family]: Are they identical?
Jessica: They just have different color hair
Jessica [not sure who to or what about]: I'm excited for you! Not really.. but I'll say I am
Dustin: I have so much going on in my face that I think my hair detracts from it

The plot thickens

Now that a truce is established, the rest of them get on with furthering their own subplots

Everyone buzzes with who should go up - most of them talk as if they get to make the decision

Early consensus leans toward Joe, or Zach.. Kail pushes for Dick but that's not gonna happen

Amber pets Eric for awhile til he's called to Diary - he's not pleased with the summons.. Amber & Kail work out their bathroom arrangements.. throughout the afternoon & evening they each get an earful about the other's friends & foes - but not everything.. it turns out Amber chose Kail to be chained to, which was a smart move

Cocooning is well underway in the little room, sometimes in teams, along with joking and of course whispering.. Joe humps Nick for good measure, or something

Bodily fluid emissions carry on throughout, like they do.. Dick hocks a few dozen loogies as he chats.. not to be outdone, Kail starts blowing spit bubbles for no apparent reason.. Zach's much-talked-about nasal blockage releases and brings on the bloodshed threatened this morning

Nick's sporting a new 'stache for his new get-around guy look.. Eric breaks into a tap dance to entertain the little room group - or maybe to irritate them.. Dustin dons the HOH robe for awhile, since Jen has to wear her catsuit

Jen rocks the house

It's an eventful evening, with little revelations popping out all over

Jen makes her rounds asking various factions who to put up, again.. sometimes she offers up a name to gauge reactions, and to further her knowledge of who's in bed with whom (although it seems pretty complete)

By the end of the evening she seems set on Nick since he's in bed with everyone, figuring either Zach or Joe will be easy outs next week for whoever moves in upstairs.. she also knows this will upset everyone who's in bed with Nick, and thinks that'll be fun - so do I - and there's the added bonus of making Daniele choose between daddy and cuddle boy

Dick's truce with her has stuck, more or less, with him making relatively good-natured comments about her catsuit and certain visible parts of her anatomy in it

She hasn't made any deals

We get a short episode of The Jessica & Daniele Show, which is always fun.. this time it leads into a game of Celebrity Lookalike with the wall photos and Jameka, Eric, Joe and others joining in

After most of the evening meetings wind down, Jen & Eric have their usual tete-à-tete in the hammock, but not before the first hammock dump of the season.. they compare notes and decide that Nick is a good choice.. Eric tells her he suspects there's more to Dick & Daniele than their story suggests, so Jen & Eric are both pretty much caught up on everyone now.. nobody seems to be on to them

Jen: I took everyone's information and made my own information

Jen stops in the round room to meet with Mike - apparently another surprise ally of hers - she tells him she's going to put up Nick and begins to explain some of the flowcharts filling the house.. they get interrupted by the girls coming in to bed before Mike gets a complete bulletin.. later he lies awake in the greenlight, processing or something

Dustin's sleeping upstairs since both his & Jen's bedmates are chained up elsewhere.. he tries on the catsuit and flashes a full monty (which I miss) before prancing around in it a bit.. well, at least I caught his hiney

Joe does a little skit for the cameras too.. Kail giggles like a hyena a few times.. a few stray meetings continue into the night

This time Eric stays up with Dick, running his mouth like he does.. they run scenarios past each other and Eric seems to be trying to revive his AC Jessica pressure again - he ran it past Jen too but didn't dwell on it - he delivers a very lengthy Jessica monologue to Dick who thought he was talking about Jen

Dick winds up with The Dick at Night Show, like he does, saying he can't trust Amber 100% now, talking down Kail, and hiding the bunnies

If Nick does indeed go up on the block, and I think he will, there may be a waffle-fest like we've never seen before.. I vow not to keep up with it, and I hope I can stay strong

Daily videos

Lots of them: impromptu clap dance class with handcuffs; Nick visits Jen after veto comp; Zach explains his "structure" to Jen; Dick talks to Kail (and Amber) about drugs; a 5-parter Jen & Dick convo (post-veto comp); Joe does hamster impressions; Dick asks Nick about Daniele; The Jessica & Daniele Show plus Celebrity Lookalike (funny); Dustin & Amber tell Kail that Joe started the anti-Jen movement; Jan tells Eric and Mike she's putting up Nick; Dustin peels off the catsuit & shows hiney; and The Dick at Night Show in 4 parts are in the forum

EditorsJulie really worked the 'twist' on Thursday's show, probably because it's about done for. Dick & Daniele's backstory came out (coincidentally also over money? hmmm), as did Eric's. Kail's bobbing & weaving during her HOH interview was peculiar, but so was Julie's big hair. Ms. Chen didn't flub many lines tonight which was good - hey, the audio not being on for her first 'Hello houseguests' probably wasn't her fault. Although I'm always happy to hear her say 'without going over' some people are up in arms about the HOH comp (even though I gave fair warning to expect a Jen win) but look at it this way: it's a tv show. Sit back and be entertained and stop hoping for reality or a fair game.. it ain't gonna happen.

She comforted Dustin while her buddy Jameka was crying after her buddy Daniele was nom'd.. ooookay. She got real busy after noms but I pretty much tuned her out today after her hour-long monologue to Kail about her ultrasounds, her cervix, her sinus surgery, the scab up her nose after her sinus surgery, and on and on and on. Enough!

No dramatics from her after her nomination which followed her going on slop again, so she's pretty much a bust as far as entertainment purposes, and she's also a totally silent whisperer, which we do not need. She tried to talk about the veto comp with Nick but he asked for a cuddle instead and proceeded to clip his toenails. She seems to be moving to cocoon mode and may not come out of it.

He made a big attempt to act normal after nominations but he overcompensated and was too normal, for Dick. It didn't take him long to come back and start trashing Jen again, including a doozy of a threat regarding death by anal sex but hey, it's Dick and we forgive him that stuff. He doesn't like being put on the block by Jen of all people, and it shows: he seems like he might be cracking just a bit around the edges. He's in a no-win situation for the veto comp: if he wins it, does he take himself off or does he avenge his tarnished dad image (and Marcellas) by taking off Daniele; and if he loses, then he could lose it all. Most don't want to see him gone (including Jen), but he doesn't know that. Easy upgrade to ups for The Dick at Night Show.

He laughed up a storm with Amber this evening and even though I didn't know what it was about (since my feeds are currently on Amber boycott) it was an infectious laugh and it felt good. He made a good presentation to Jen and though his motives were mostly selfish - as expected by any of them - he stated a good case and presented it well.

Is he a mole or is he a weasel? I think I've seen him before.. isn't he the guy who gets fired second on every series of 'The Apprentice'?

I'd like to give her ups for crying but her tears looked sincere (which feels bad) and they were misplaced, making feedsters think for a minute she was a shock nomination. I'm still not sure why she was crying.

Yep, she stirred up the house and did it good: just what we needed. I like that she asked people about what others were saying about them.. having more of the whispered gossip out in the open could add a bit of interest with a truly new 'twist' to this game.

After the great promise she showed yesterday, she was largely off my feeds today and that was a huge disappointment. Thanks to Eric's latest assignment she had her moment in the nomination possibility spotlight and that's good - it should leave her safe and available to entertain us for awhile to come.

Instead of making a nice presentation to Jen to save himself, he pretty much gave her a bunch of reasons to be nominated by being overly defensive and forgetting to offer up alternate names in place of his own. I gather she gave him a dressing-down about his attitude after the ceremony, which he proceeded to ignore by bitching about it to three or four people immediately afterwards. If the veto's used, Joe's a goner which is too bad as he can be real amusing, but he wasn't today.

She thinks she's got the upper hand with Dick now based on a passing comment, and she's gloating very loudly and very often about it. She really deserves ups for her naivete here but it's likely going to come back and bite her so hard that I don't have the heart to take joy in it now. She got absolutely giddy with each re-telling though, especially how she told Dick 'I have no in with Jen' and then cracked herself because 'Hey, that rhymes!'

He went from being AWOL to being all over, and every time he showed up he had the same lost look on his face. Zach spent an hour or so explaining everything about everything to him (including some stuff that seemed odd for casual guy chat, to me anyway) and later Kail & Jen talked everything out again, and about the only thing Mike said in response to either was 'Huh?' and 'Yeah'. He's getting to be pretty fun to watch, if you can find him.

He thinks he's stirring everything up but he's really better at doing Zoolander faces. He had one good line today though: 'Was that a real fart?'

This guy has no idea he's being whispered about all over town in very derogatory terms, and while everyone else was whispering in 2's and 3's about the next three HOH cycles, he was busy explaining his monumental role in the Carol versus Amber vote to Mike. He's really getting full of himself to the point of practically having the money spent but his real incentive may have slipped out when he told Mike: 'We'll be able to get dates now.'


She & Jessica didn't fulfill the 'twist' as advertised so off she goes. She wasn't prepared for this, she moped a lot and was barely around, but she gave a good show when she had it out with all the cameras watching her.

This site isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also 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.
