February 28, 2008 - Day 21 (or 22)
>> Joshuah & Sharon are Heads of Household - Ryan & Allison and Matt & Natalie are nominated <<
A-pawning we will go|
Everyone but Ryan & Allison held an HOH summit to present the plan to get rid of Allison.. it sounded like they'd just as soon keep Ryan, but this season's running a high casualty rate and he'll have to become another statistic on that score
Matt & Natalie aren't thrilled at going up as pawns, but they were guaranteed safety and encouraged by everyone to go all out for veto.. Chelsia continued her 'good cop' role by pretending to comfort Allison, telling her she could save herself if she wins it
Allison violated her own restraining order again to yell at Joshuah that she was going to sue him for every dollar he's got, which of course she can't (they sign lengthy contracts preventing this) and anyway, he said he's only got $5.. she went on to berate his education (two degrees) and accuse him of making 'only $30,000 a year' (he said nope, more)
Joshuah ridiculed her for repeating the same outfit on national tv already
They had their food comp and catsuits made a comeback: green this time, for most of the girls.. Sharon & the guys wore chef aprons.. I don't think it was a slop event but will add to the sidebar FAQ what I find out.. they had a good time, even Allison
Allison made a pitch to Joshuah & Sharon, and to Sharon & Chelsia, who actually started to consider it.. James reacted with "Are you guys fucking out of your mind? You guys are smoking crack if you don't get Allison out of here" in what will likely win the Line of the Day award
"James, get a boner"
Chelsia said it first
He'd put on one of the girl's catsuits from the comp and didn't even get a chance to prance around in it before they urged him on.. being James, he didn't need much urging
Chelsia acted coy as he leaned in and rubbed himself, cheered on by Adam & Ryan, but she was right on his heels as he went out to display for Sheila, Allison & Natalie
Ryan/Allison and Matt/Natalie were nominated as planned, with a "well-spoken and classy" speech (per Sheila).. Allison's mood did another 180: she's grinning, chatty and downright giddy, saying things like how empty the house will seem next week.. I suspect she took the open nom as a sign that she's not hated after all, since a non-nom would mean she'd be going out the backdoor
Natalie cooked family dinner of steaks and asparagus - they're off carbs from the food comp, but that's it.. Diary made James change out of the catsuit
A kinder, gentler habitat
Adam gets a little creepier every day, but the rest of them have toned their act way down
Joshuah & Matt kept reining in their respective troops so they wouldn't attack Allison again prematurely, so she's not only back on her high horse but she's riding it through the stratosphere
Evening brought James in droopy drawers (still self-copping a feel at every opportunity), along with barnyard animal sounds (which was kind of cute) plus milk & cookies and warm fuzzies all around.. on the surface anyway
Umm.. aren't cookies considered carbohydrates?
Tomorrow should bring back some fireworks.. if we're very, very good and very, very lucky, we might get a booze delivery too
Allison/Joshuah versions of Diary re threats & Allison's pitch; James reacts & Chelsia angry; Catsuit boner; and Animal sounds plus boners are posted in the forum and at Veoh, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Bedtime story edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Well, they're sticking to the lie about the day count, despite a dozen contradictory voices who would know these things. Typically for this season, Wednesday's show did not hold a candle to what's been happening on the feeds it's supposedly culled from. Julie said 'the house was rocked to the core' by something or other, but they're still overlooking the real rocking going on in there, and Natalie. She also said 'It was certain Alex & Amanda would be going' and I'd like to know where she got that from: this group waffles like no other! They got some more mileage out of the EMT visitors and made James look like a choirboy in his outside life.. umm okay. All in all, it was interchangeable with most any other eviction show, save for the now-expected surprise of which of our non-expendable hamsters would be expended. I was looking forward to hearing Julie pronounce Goethe but she never did; instead she smugly corrected Sharon (who got Goethe right) when she murdered Dostoevsky's name. Julie's parting announcement about next week is posted in the sidebar and that's all anyone knows at this point, so stop asking.
Paired with Sheila
I'm really getting tired of seeing him sit around with his hand down his pants and assorted other fondlings, but easy ups anyway for his new creepy smoking outfit.
Paired with Ryan
It's a tie with James for Line of the Day award for her telling Joshuah et al that she was 'raped by Amanda for days'. Her gloating after not being nom'd was palpable and distasteful, but you start to understand why her CBS bio says she 'failed miserably' at her goal of becoming a professional gambler. Beyond that: like, I never said that, like, from the get-go, do you see what I'm saying? Trust me, like, I adore you, like, one million percent. I don't care.
Paired with James
She got revved up for a minute but sputtered out fast, and other than that she wasn't around much until she started oinking.
Paired with Chelsia
The catsuit was almost inspired but he just did it to show off his junk again. Is it just me, or is having this guy around giving anyone else flashbacks of 'Real World SF' Puck?
Co-HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Paired with Neil Sharon
The animal sounds game was going on downstairs but he was being extremely catty about Allison upstairs, and it was funny stuff.. meow! He had a few classic quads moments tonight including complaints about Allison getting so hyper & over-upset while she cackled loudly downstairs; and telling Sharon he thought it was Natalie who did the Matt BJs, while Natalie sat quietly reading her Bible. He's threatened another show for Friday and that's always a great way to kick off a weekend.
Paired with Natalie
He schooled Natalie a few times today and it was good stuff. He's educating her about the game, what to say and what not to say, and that she shouldn't trust anyone but him. It might be advice she can use in life, and while he probably says the same stuff outside of here, he's got a point this time. 'When I say shut your mouth [around the others], that doesn't mean actually listen to what people say' was a real gem.
Paired with Matt
She's been keeping way too low a profile lately but came out a bit tonight with barnyard noises and didn't miss a beat when boners were introduced. She listens to Matt's instructions but then seems to get swayed by Allison and sundry as soon as his back is turned. With a little more guidance, he could have a phenomenal spy working for him since she's in good with everyone, but he's too busy ignoring her most of the time to realize it.
Jen's boyfriend/Paired with Allison
I have no idea where he stands in all this today, but things should become clearer tomorrow. Unfortunately for him and thanks to his wacko of a partner, his future hamster career doesn't look very bright.
Co-HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
She just doesn't do it for me watching-wise, but I have to hand it to her for keeping a very low profile while driving just about everything. She put the moves on Alex right after the veto and kept them on him til he was safely out the door, distracting him from noticing anything that might have saved him. Now she's encouraging Joshuah's hating on Allison but is very public about saying she doesn't support it when he goes too far. She's got most of them doing all of the dirty work and she's keeping her hands clean. Even her noms this week are being thought of as a favor for the entire house - something she can use later when she needs to call in a favor from a future HOH. Brilliant!
Paired with Adam
She had a couple mini-confrontations and animated Allison-story retellings today but her former fire is dwindling a bit as she realizes it's not helping her get anywhere. She & Adam are sitting pretty right now: everyone wants to keep them since they suck at comps and they suck at strategy. I'm still thinking all this might be calculated on her part but it doesn't really matter if it's savvy or luck, as the results are the same: she's safe.
Paired with Amanda
He started out looking like he was on board with Matt's showmance plan and CBS picked up that angle, but then we got to know a bright, charismatic, and goofy guy who had everything going for him in there except his partner. His diplomacy was remarkable and he might have gone the distance, but he went out as another casualty of 'Til Death Do You Part'.
Paired with Alex
She began with hysterics & drama and was at the center of the biggest BB fight ever, but she went out with more of a whimper than a bang. Her moods dropped as fast as her blood sugar but to her credit, she rebounded just as fast. She & Allison had dual 911 events, but Amanda's collapse brought unexpected (and uniformed) guests into the habitat and onto the air.
Ryan's girlfriend/Paired with Parker
She & Ryan could have gone far if she hadn't opened her mouth in the first days. She made loads of enemies in a short time and took Parker down with her. She'll be remembered for super-quickie sex in the bathroom and a rash on her backside.. hmm, coincidence?
Paired with Jen
He was good watching at first til he gave up and went on strike. He bounced back a bit at the end but his doom came early when partner Jen couldn't keep her trap shut about her & Ryan. She had to go, and he was just the innocent bystander casualty. 'I'm sick of people's dumbass assinine ass comments' might be Line of the Season.
Paired with Joshuah
He left suddenly and mysteriously but wrote on his MySpace that he didn't leave for health reasons and that he won't be back. He seems like a good guy and I wish him well.. he's probably lucky he got out when he did, unscathed.
Paired with Sharon (his ex)
Gone before the feeds kicked in: he didn't even make an appearance. All that potential for rehashing their breakup and/or a jealous rage up in smoke. To make it worse, he & Sharon didn't even get an exit interview in Julie's boudoir - how rude!

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.
