April 15, 2008 - Day 68 (or 69)
>> Sheila is Head of Household - Sharon & Natalie are nominated <<
Turn that smile upside down|
Tuesday's the day the hamsters pretend they're happy
Sheila & Natalie posed for a few pics, their fight of last night swept away for the moment.. all three girls looked themselves over a few times, with none of the unpleasantness that comes up whenever any one of them is elsewhere
Today was Ryan's turn to not feel well, and Sheila snapped him in bed giving a thumbs down, which is more symbolic than he knows
As soon as the camera went away and Sheila went up to blog, Natalie asked Sharon about what she's been hearing, and we've got another fight.. Adam & Ryan milled around and said nothing
This one was mostly accusations from Natalie and denials/"whatevers" from Sharon.. later Sharon said that she wanted to "bring out Hoops" but she'd made a promise she wouldn't
Naturally, Sheila didn't like Sharon's report about Natalie confronting her.. later she said "Natalie was talking SHIT about me when I was up here blogging - I couldn't even defend myself!"
Et tu, Sheila?
Sheila started yet another round when Adam & Ryan told her they were thinking about keeping Natalie, and she lost her mind screaming at them about it
This came after Ryan broke a chair, and showed his split pants inspecting it
Adam finally yelled back, telling her he doesn't care about her feelings, it's a game, and called her bitch.. BB9Dish caught the video - it gets juicy at the 4 minute mark.. Sheila later upgraded "bitch" to "fucking bitch" in the retelling.. she kicked the guys out, and when Sharon showed up, like she does, Sheila made it very clear that nobody has a right to win but her
Sheila also made it clear that her only concern about Sharon leaving tomorrow is how it affects her own endgame, and I think Sharon might finally be catching on to that.. if Sheila outbursts like "If [Adam] takes Natalie, guess what? I'm going to sequester!" don't show her the light, nothing will
Natalie versus Sharon in two parts is posted in the forum, linked top & bottom of every page
Daily ratings - Please can we get a Fast Forward? edition
Ratings are based on entertainment value
Tuesday's show has me baffled: why are they turning Natalie into Amber and Sheila into Maggie? Adam cost them a major sponsor, Sharon & Ryan are hardly good tv, and even Sheila's biggest fans can't listen to her for long, but Natalie's been an open book in there and one of the few who hasn't made any non-game-related headlines since this mess started. Sheila's plan to 'backdoor' Natalie was hardly a secret and the guys came on board a lot sooner than CBS is letting on, but the huge question is why are they portraying this plan as pure strategy, without airing any of Sheila's or anyone else's vicious trashing of Natalie? This show had its usual share of out-of-sequence scenes, but overall it's only the second time this season that had the basic story framework relatively accurate - the other time was when the house flipped to evict James the first time. I'll save the Diary meddling theories because nobody really cares, and ask instead what happened to Sheila's stories of being dumped in an orphanage? Now that her mom's turned out to be a BB viewer, mom's a hero. Other nauseating tidbits included Sheila crying over her HARDEST DECISION to put up her FRIEND Natalie after trashing her for days, her overall calm demeanor for this hour instead of her 24/7 ranting like a crazy woman, and her worrisome Diary about how she'll 'ultimately have to get blood on my hands' if it's a tie vote. Newsflash for you, Sheila: you're soaking in it.
Paired with Sheila
I'm disappointed he tipped off Sheila that he might keep Natalie.. I was hoping to see Sheila's head explode on live tv after a 2-0 vote to boot Sharon. But I'm upgrading him from neutral for that to solid ups for finally yelling back at Sheila, and for calling her a bitch.
Paired with Matt
She's yapping a lot even for her, but she's timing her moves well and even if her hardcore campaigning isn't successful, she's made one hell of a good attempt to stay. Even the CBS version made it seem like she's already gone.
Jen's boyfriend / Paired with Allison
He actually confronted Sharon when she said she couldn't remember whether Joshuah trashed anyone in their co-HOH blog or not, telling her 'Don't pretend that!' a few times. His & Sheila's ongoing creepy quota climbed a notch higher tonight when Sheila said she thought her mom would think Ryan's hot.
Paired with Jacob (her ex) Joshuah
Granted, she's the last of her group to survive and she's sat in the nominee chair week after week without leaving, but if she's so smart and so pure, why does she keep aligning herself with such vile, nasty people? She hasn't unglued herself from Sheila's side for a full week now, and she makes her screechy laugh whenever Sheila slings bile about someone the same way she did with Joshuah and James. Even CBS mostly ignores her but that could be for equipment safety: I think she blows out their audio equipment every time she starts screeching her Diaries.
Paired with Adam
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Rare double downs for her superior and obnoxious sense of entitlement, and for making sure she lets every one of them know they owe her half a million bucks. We've seen a lot of self-important hamsters, delusional hamsters, hamsters who play victim, and obnoxious, nasty & vicious hamsters, but she takes the cake in every category. She's not even fun when she's exploding, and I don't think I can take another week of her.
Revived a minute after his first eviction
Paired with Chelsia
Offline scandals kept popping up but CBS kept hyping him - damage control maybe. He pushed Chelsia til she did what she promised Daddy she wouldn't, but most of that was blocked. He cried when nobody liked him, he slept a lot, got nekkid a lot, masturbated a lot, and topped Cowboy's hat trick with his tuck. Like another James before him, he played all sides too soon and too eagerly, and it came back to bite him. Click for his adult material.
Paired with Neil Sharon
He put on costumes and breakfast shows, and did hot tub monologues, praying & sobbing aloud. He exploded viciously on Amanda & Allison, and about Sheila & Natalie (usually focused on genitalia), but he left the guys alone except James, who he c-blocked & puppy-dogged. He had lots of schemes to save himself but used them up early, and his huge drama potential fell short when we needed it most. He had the only Diary restraining order I know of: 5 feet away from Allison.
Won: $21,000 Vegas trip
Paired with James
Sometimes a spitfire who gave us good fights & fireworks but she laid around with James way too much, which was her undoing and ours. She'll be remembered for feedmasters' attempts to protect her, strip/lap dance/makeout night, having sex, raunchy stories, a colorful vocabulary, getting smashed, smashing everyone's Easter eggs, and for going out with the nasty speeches they all threaten but rarely follow through with.
Paired with Natalie
America's Playa came on strong, prepared to showmance his way through all the girls and into the money. That didn't work out but he was fun to have around and he usually kept things light amid the chaos. He brought BJs to the feeds and made Bibles fun in there. Despite the fact that he's a pig, he has some good qualities too and he kinda grows on you.
Paired with Ryan
She called it manipulation - I call it emotional blackmail with a lot of 'poor me' thrown in. One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), she's the poster girl for Can Dish It Out But Can't Take It. She did give us some confrontation doozies and fireworks deluxe but trust her, like one million percent, she does not care.
Revive-a-Hamster winner & loser
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.
