'Big Brother 8' - 7/24 Show Live-Blogged - East Coast Updates!

Jackie's TV Blog, BB8, Big Brother 8

Come one, come all! Put your Veto hats on and join the party. I'm live-blogging the show as it airs here on the East Coast.

Please join in with your thoughts and comments. And, please forgive any typos or misspellings as I'm watching TV with a keyboard on my lap not looking at the monitor.

So far, we're into the recap. Jen thinks everyone hates her and she could go home as easily as Kail.

Zach is ready to do his streaking through the backyard. This gave the entire house ammo to use against him. Heh. They're hiding inside from him and stole his towel.

Kail and Jen were talking about the guys being vulnerable in POV -- Mike and Zach, that is. Kail feels she HAS to win.

Kail tells Dick she's the most loyal, passionate, non-judgmental person. Dick cut her off and told her that she's not playing the game well. He said she'd have to get POV and everyone wants her out. She tells him Jen is after Daniele. He point-blank tells her that she went after him, she lied to him and won't stay unless she gets the veto.

Eric recieved his task and found out the target is Jen. He's thrilled to know that America hates Jen as muvh as he does. He put the mustard on her Jensa Member shirt which was on her pillow. As I mentioned in the feeds that Jen wasn't all that upset. Dang, Eric looks guilty to me!

Veto player picking time has arrived -- Kail wants to pull Mike's ball. Hey, no gutter minds! Zach, Nick and Jessica are the players in addition to the two nominees and HOH. Dick warns Kail he'll do anytiing he can to get her out of the game.

Dick meets Jen in the storage room and told her she needs to save herself because she tried to throw Jen under the bus. Then he told Kail that he told Jen about it in front of Jen. "You're a liar and you're going home. You were going to throw her under the bus and you're going home."

Kail is shaking and uncomfortable. (I think it's likely that Amber is off crying just thinking of the drama unfolding before her in the house.)

Time for the Veto Comp -- Eric is the Mad Hatter. They all have costumes. It looks like a Mad Hatter's tea party! They all have oversized hats, must stand on a pedastal with a glass balanced on their heads. Kail's out almost immediately, rips off her costume, goes to bed and cried.

Heehee! The other are all in costume jeering them. Daniele said the plan was to leave Dick up last. Jessica is out. Nick is out. This is a hoot. Oh, no... zuma, zuma! Jen and Dick remain. Dick is telling Jen she won't go home. It's a standoff! She wants a guarantee she won't go home and Dick's words just don't do it. Kail notices that all of the others are after Jen and only Mike was working on Dick.

Kail and Dick team up for a plan. Mike says it shows he's still loyal to her. Jen asked why he wouldn't want them up together on the block. Dick told her Mike was for another time, Kail was for now.

Now it's to the "I don't care if I go up" bit from Mike. Mike told him it's just a game, no big deal. Dick stepped down, threw his glass down and told Mike he's on the block. Jen wins POV.

Mike thinks it shows how loyal and trustworthy he is. Dick thinks it could be a ticket home for him and as bad as pulling a Marcellas. He had been safe ... before.

Kail is now looking pensive. She thinks that if Mike goes on the block, she';; lay low.

And Kail cries.

It's in God's hands and she will pray for protection. @@

The HOH room has been taken over by Nick, Zach and Jen. Nick got the others out. Dick asked Zach to stay out of the HOH room unless he's in there. Dick wants Amber to go evacuate the room and get the key back, but he ends up ding it. Dick told Nick the last thing he wants to see is Jen and Zach up there together. He tells us he thinks Nick, Jen and Zach are working together.

Nick tells him that he likes his daughter and it's messing with his head. Daniele interrupts, but Dick told her he's in a conversation.

Daniele tells Dick that every person in the house is mad. He's talking down to everyone in the house and it's not fair to her. Dick confronts her about the alliance with Nick and others. Now Daniele doesn't want to talk about it. "I won't hang out with him anymore!"

Gah!

Now Daniele pouts and Dick sullenly smokes. He approaches her. Dick told her he'd like to try family counseling after the show.

Dick goes to Eric and Jameka about his uneasiness with Nick.

It's time for Jen's decision. The JenBot (thanks ORKMommy!) shows she knows the game. She's playing a bit dumb. KAil said she didn't expect her to use it on her. Jen is actually kind of funny as she talks to herself about why she should save herself. Dick says he's going to do something unexpected...

"Daniele.... I'm going to nominate Mike."

Kail is more upset that Mike is there than Mike is.

America's Player - Who do you want Eric to get evicted from the Big Brother house?

(Yeah, like one vote is going to help, eh?)

That task for Eric was completely stupid. I also think that ED talks about the game to much outloud.(Does that make sense?)

Good for you Sassy!! This is kinda of tense with ED!!!
He really needs to cool himself the rest of the week!!

Why is Mike trying so hard to be loyal to Kail. I just don't get it. Jackie, what's up with this.

WHY

oh my mike was stupid1!!! All the houseguests have to be thinking stupid jerk!!

ORKMommy said...

I appreciate that Mike wants to show everyone how loyal he is, but what's the point? He totally goaded ED into doing what he did! Nobody cares how loyal you are if you go home! Nobody cares how loyal if your loyalty gets you out of the house and gets them one step closer to 500K!!

And I had such high hopes for my local hottie!

p.s. Hi Lesa!

I am totally voting for Kail. I just hope we don't screw Eric up if the rest of the house is voting for Mike.

HUH no Pirate Master's did they cancel it?????

ORKMommy said...

WTF?? Titan TV says Pirate Masters is supposed to be on now and I'm seeing 48 Hours Mystery. What's going on here??? Where did Pirate Masters go?

delee said...

Supposed to be on, but not. Just great even though not that good, still want to see it to the end.

Anonymous said...

I'm definitely voting for Eric to vote for Kail to go!!
Hope that other houseguests decide to do so too by Thursday night and then Eric won't be "out there" alone voting for Kail..........

ORKMommy said...

Another totally different subject...

Did anyone else see that CSI: Miami is bringing Speedle's character back? He died in 2004!! I have no clue how they're going to bring him back. It's like a soap opera down there in CSI: Miami.

Anonymous said...

Jackie--I asked my hubby(who is a movie buff) about Mrs. Robinson and he said she pursued him but he fell for it because he was "Horny"(can I say that!!)--his words not mine. Hope that clears things up.

pickles said...

Orkmommy- I read on a message board that PM has been cancelled but you can catch the rest of the epps online.

On your other note... How the heck to you bring a guy back that was shot to death in the episode? (I pulled an Amber and cried like a baby when he died.) Are they running out of ideas down there or does this mean that Wolf won't be coming back to the team?

delee said...

I did not see that about CSI MIA, twin bro???? Kind of weird to bring him back someway!!! Where did you see that?

I agree this could throw Eric under the bus for sure!!!

Why oh why didn't Dick put Nick on the block????????? Anyone?????

ORKMommy said...

E! News Online had the story, A CSI: Miami Resurrection.

Good thing BB producers are enforcing the 10 vote limit on America's Player @@. I've voted for Kail at least 20 times already!

Anonymous said...

I have tried to watch and read as best I have time for but maybe you all can help me out with a couple things.

1...seemed to me like Mike really egged Dick on to lose the POV. Why?

2.I heard them say that Eric was to "vandalize" and that is what he did. In his mind, mustard may not have been a bad thing to do. He may not have known it would stain.
Then I read that everyone is upset with him. Why?

pickles said...

Thanks for the link Orkmommy! Jerry Bruckheimer better think long and hard about how to bring him back. Loved the character but I don't get why they are bringing him back.

delee said...

He will be his character....is CSI MIA a soap opera??? Dallas...all a dream??? Well I guess they will say he pretended to die to protect something! What next??? CBS is trying too hard...but they did bring back Jericho. Esau Morales from NYPD Blue is joining the cast.

TY for the link Orkmommy

ORKMommy said...

I can't find any formal announcement about Pirate Master anywhere. There is a comment on the CBS-PM Message Board about how John is suing CBS because of the way they portrayed him last week as the moron who lost the key. Until that gets straightened out they had to pull the show. Don't know how truthful that is, but it's a reason...

I hate having to watch stuff online! :(

delee said...

Think Mike just thought it would be funny to make ED drop it, hence Jen gets POV, but I do not think he thought it thru that he would go up.

Most are upset since they have so little privacy, that their personal stuff should be off limits. I think my things should be left alone in that situation and most hamsters do to!

ORKMommy said...

Can't...keep...eyes...open...must sleep...

Night all. See you tomorrow!

Anonymous said...

Thank you, delee, for the help with your answers to my wonders.

Anonymous said...

Hi All,
Wow...Dick better chill but we all know he hasn't. I just hope he or the other hamsters wise up and still get Kail out. Sigh. Either way, ED will be a prime target. I just think Kail will go after him more aggressively than Mike. I could easily be wrong cuz I'm pretty clueless about who Mike is anyway.

Ok, I just gotta ask...am I the only one who cringes when (almost) college educated people say things like 'the minute I seen the back yard', which is not a direct quote (I'm NO Jackie ;) Jessica made me cringe and it wasn't even her voice that did it! LOL

I'm used to Kail's horrendous speaking and lack of vocabulary but am I just old and wanting too much? I am? Ok, then I'm going to take the Jenattitude and say "I don't care". ROFL!

And puh-leeez...Kail is non-judgmental? More like self-delusional.

Ummmm, errr, I think I've ranted long enough. Sorry.

Have fun!

OH...BTW...I want to be one of the lead singers for And Amber Cried, please, please, pick me, pick me!! I'll do the more ballad type songs...I reserve the Ann Murray one...I LOVE that song. And yes, fellow bloggers, I really can sing :)

However, if Jackie wants to be lead singer, I'll happily join the back up singer group, ok?

Sing on...

PlaidChick said...

Sorry I missed the live blogging, dinner was late tonight and I have had a bad headache all day :( Yay for TiVo.

OK I get why Dick put Mike up now. I guess I have to see CBS edit it down to get the jist of it. And you all know when Kail hears he is evicted Thursday night and realizes it was her fault, ohh ya she's going to feel like well you know. Dick was classic following her around before the PoV.

It'll make good feed watching for Kail to flip out come Thursday. Good God she is a sore loser. How old is she again???! Been hanging around Jen too much.

Ok so Jen has won an HoH and a PoV, and she can obviously hang with the best when it comes to endurance... time to get her out quick. I would almost say get her out before Kail.

Mustard prank was stupid. I still don't think they need to show Dick and Daniele hash out their relationship. Vincent's myspace page doesn't show much except he is cheering on his dad, and his music is Mrs Robinson. Kris the BF has his myspace page blocked.

Night everyone!

Anonymous said...

Ok so is it just me or is anyone else getting tired of Dick and his self-centered , self- rightous attitude? I get that he is probably the most entertaining houseguest this year ( cast is really lacking) but enough already... he is really annoying.. He needs to grow up. He is playing a game with a bunch of kids for heaven sake!! I feel sorry for Daniele... can't imagine having him for a father and yes she comes across in the feeds as a spoiled brat. i just hope that this season gets a little more exciting and more interesting than the world according to Dick.....

joy n said...

Plaidchick, Jen did NOT win POV, Dick gave it to her on a silver platter. Mike was totally stupid for "accepting" Dick's challenge although I believe, too, that Mike thought he was only calling ED's bluff and, SURPRISE, Dick wasn't bluffing.!!!!! And I totally believe Kail will do everything in her power to screw Mike over now so that she can stay. That seems to be the reason why she "helped" Mike during the POV challenge; she had already blown her chance and Mike was her last option to stay in the game. The woman is sounding desparate to me. She'll backstab Mike or anyone else to win. After all, Mrs. Successful can't go back home a loser. THE DISGRACE!!!!!!! People will laugh. She is getting desparate and I hope ED hasn't blown it.

Well Sassy and the other west coast viewers it's finally our turn. Get your glasses(and bottle of tequila) the show is about to begin.

dgmommie said...

Daniele really threw a teenage hissyfit on the show tonight! You'd think she was going on 16 instead of 21. NO maturity there at all.

dgmommie said...

Orkmommy, I found the following info on Channel 5's website from Nashville (posted today at 1:03pm) regarding Pirate Master:

CBS cancelled "Pirate Master" abruptly Monday after 8 episodes. "48 Hours" will air in the Tuesday 9-10 PM time slot Tuesday night and next Tuesday.
The decision to cancel "Pirate Master" was not a local one - our ratings in Nashville for the program were quite good. The decision was made by the CBS network. If you have computer access, you can watch the remaining 5 episodes of "Pirate Master" by going to CBS InnerTube or cbs.com. Tonight's episode is already online and every Tuesday a new episode will be posted on the site. We apologize if your local TV listings were incorrect. CBS only announced the cancellation Monday morning.

I hope Jess wins...Dick, Nick and Danielle are all lame and very imature! They are mean and stupid. Jess, Jameka and Dustin are all awesome and decent!!! Bring back Dr. Will!

Anonymous said...

Donna,

I'm with you about Dick. He may be the only thing that is the least bit entertaining on BB this year(outside of this blog's new band and drinking games!) but he is a jerk. I've known too many people like him to be able to actually cheer for him. He is a 40-something who does not want to grow up. He is capable of playing "dad" when it suits him or makes him look good (or is that CBS editing?). Everyone can say Daniele is spoiled, etc., but no matter what age, would anyone want to be forced to live 24/7 with your parents--let alone one you did not get along with?

I think BB and CBS got the casting all wrong. This is by far the least entertaining BB I have watched. I am about to give up on the show and just read about it from Jackie.

Or perhaps I am feeling a bit jaded this morning. We shall see.

Well now we see why Mike is on the block! How stupid was that stunt he pulled. He was begging to be put on the block and Dick gave him his wish. How could he not see how Kail was manipulating him. She kept dressing him up and sending him out, but yet she never tried to do anything to get Dick off the pedestal. I agree with Dick that Mike made the dumbest move since Marcellas won POV and didn't save himself! I do think Dick is wrong though to want to evict Mike, he needs to keep his focus on Kail. Mike is not a threat to anybody, but Kail is. I think Dick should really be worried about who wins next HOH - he has definitely alienated a few people during his reign.

RBennie said...

Now on to the topic of Jen. I cannot figure that girl out! Is she really that vain, vapid and vacuous? Or is she a brilliant player and a threat to win the whole thing? She shows no emotions whatsoever. She seemed to care less that she was on the block. She doesn't seem to want to form any alliances. She could care less that everyone in the house seems to hate her. Other than Daniele, she does not seem to like or dislike anyone in the house. I'm curious to hear other thoughts on Jen.

LYSS said...

1ST..on CSI Miami..could it be like on Dallas..when Bobby was kill'd and then Pam woke up and it was all a dream the whole yr w/o him..(did i just show my age?? does ne one remember Dallas..was it bad that i totall new the whole story line?? in my defence..i was like 8-11 when dallas was on..lol)

NOW ON TO BB8...
I was kinda disappointed that by the end of the show i hadn't drank ne thing..did i miss a cry?? (from amber ne way) and i totally for got to drink on Jen's part)..but i did see Amber tossing a wadded tissue after the POV..but i didn't see ne tears so i didn't count that one..oh well i'll def be drunk thursday..lol
I think that Dick needs to tone it down a bit..I can see going after Kail and shaking her up to lose POV but why attack everyone in the house..I can see why he went off on Zack being in the room w/Jen..but he could have handled that way different..i guess he didn't hear me when i was talkin to him through the tv..i'll have to try something else tomorrow..

First, to Sasha: you're not the only one who cringes at all the horrible grammer. My favorite soundbite of last nite was, of course, Kail's, on the POV comp:

"All three of us is gonna work our hardest to win."

I've noticed that she very rarely, if ever, talks in a complete sentence with nouns, verbs and all those other good things matching.

Second, the POV comp was a hoot-- I loved the costumes! It wa slike Survivor meets BB, best of both worlds.

Third, my heart goes out to anyone who was watching Pirate Master-- I hated it, but it sucks when one of these shows gets cancelled mid-season!

Random Thoughts:

Nick is a "former college and pro football player." He wears a shirt that says Citdel, which is a medium sized college, decent football program. However, he actually played at University of Minnesota-Crookston, and finished his degree at University of North Dakota-Grand Forks. Anyone ever been to Crookston? Probably 15 people in the whole college. Grand Forks is bigger, but surely not better. And he played his "pro football" in Finland for crying out loud!

Anyone else notice that while the stories are focused so hard on ED, Daniele, Jen and Kail, that other people are doing a massive float? You wouldn't even know that Jessica, Jameka and Dustin were even in the house.

Lastly, I would be interested to see what life is like now in "Kail's town" now that she has bragged about running/owning 1/2 of it. I doubt if she was well loved before - rich controlling families in small towns usually aren't. Can't imagine what it's like now that she's gone on national TV and proclaimed herself the "Queen."

"....And Amber Cried." Wasn't that a line in Elvis Presley's "In the Ghetto?" Oh, maybe that was "...and his Mama Cried."

I can't imagine why EDick decided to boot Mike (instead of Kail). He's not so shallow as to want more girls in the house than guys. Maybe he'll surprise everyone and vote her out! (I wish). Someone mentioned Esai Morales name - saw on the news where his girlfriend/wife is suing him for giving her "herpes". haha In this house of misfits called BB, I think I'd like to see EDick win the whole pot-o-gold, but he stepped off the path when he made that replacement nomination (Mike) and now he's heading the wrong direction. It's a darned shame that everyone in the house to too young to remember The Graduate and Mrs. Robinson. Someone explained it earlier but it was a classic movie moment when Dustin Hoffman first realized that Ann Bancroft (Mrs. Robinson) was, in fact, trying to seduce him!!
I think we're used to the guys in prior seasons being the criers. This year, we have Amber, Kail, and Daniele has been bawling quite a bit. Her Daddy should have thrown out the guy who's keeping her so stirred up. I like Nick, but he's playing Daniele more than he's playing the game. Hi Orkmommy!!
