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