'Big Brother 8' - Sunday 7/29 Show - Live-Blogged from the East Coast
The show is starting here on the East Coast. Right now it's still in recap mode. But, as it airs I'll update this post with the happenings. Please refresh the page to see the latest!
As always, with the live-blogging, please forgive any typos and misspellings. I'm not a JenBot! ;-)
And, as always, feel free to give me your reactions in the comments section! Hip-waders ready? Let's get to it!
Evel (or just a guy named ED) is accusing Jen of being the second vote for Kail to go. The house is in an uproar over that second vote. Jen? Nick? Anybody but Eric, eh? Amber thinks that Nick is playing both sides, Dustin also thinks it was Nick. Actually, though Eric isn't my favorite player, he did do that one well. No one suspects him at all.
Amber cried because she's so happy Dustin won HOH. Kail makes the word "toward" into two distinct syllables. Jen thinks she's "all right" with Dustin as HOH. The HOH room is a celebration indeed. His graduation pictues and family photos. Amber smiles. Kail thinks his parents look like they accept Dustin for who he is. Um, okay. That sort of should be a given with parents. Hey, Kail, he's gay. He's not committing crimes or a druggie or a thief.
Oh, gosh... now Dustin's crying.
Amber said she thinks the same of her dog (if not more) that she does her daughter. Ack. Dick called her on it. I have two cats I love dearly, but sheesh! If I had a child, I'd have to put the child before my pet! Dick has a point. When you don't have children or your children are grown, that's when your pets step in the role. They're a part of the family, but even I (a true pet lover) would have to say your children should always come first! Of course, I'm one who thinks lots of folks have children who shouldn't even have pets, but... that's another topic for another day!
Dick told us about the Dick at Night Show -- something I always look forward to on the feeds. He rigged the kitchen faucet to spray and caught Daniele.
Zach tells a story about a weird offensively twisted thing he did at a comics convention. Now, I'm a comics fan. I've been to comics conventions. The most notable thing I've seen was a bunch of Klingons eating at Horton Plaza in San Diego. So, this leads onto how annoyed the HG are at Zach.
More on the Dick and Daniele relationship. I really have to take Dick's side a bit more than Daniele's. However, I don't think the BB house is quite the place to work out their problems. Dick is certainly trying to make amends. You can tell he loves his daughter.
I feel uncomfortable watching these bits. It's like BB is having cash flow due to their very real problems. I do think Dick really cares a lot, though. And, for Daniele, he can't be an easy guy to have as a father, but hopefully she knows deep down inside that he loves her.
Now Eric is teaching Jessica how to dance. He actually flipped her and caught her. He's so not ready for Dancing With the Stars.
The food comp is on -- The Humpty Scramble, they're paired up. Ericc and Zach, Nick and Daniele, Kail and Evel. They're costumed up. Humpty Dumpty bottom and his legs, puzzle pieces. Dustin, looking like the Imperial Margarine King, eplained the rules. Jameka and Jessica are partners.
Jessica and Jameka finished first and won the competition. They get to choose five subjects to be placed on slop for the remainder of the week. They chose Dick because he hadn't been on slop. He also had volunteered to do so on the feeds. They chose Zach after acting like they were going to Eric. They chose Zach because Jameka doesn't like him. Kail. Nick next. Jen. JenBot is happy about it it becuase it may control her weight.
Dick started asking Jen if she had a boob job. She looks confused.. She won't confirm or deny the boob job. But she keeps looking at her chest as if it will tell her.
Dustin talks to Kail and she gives him advice. @@ She wants to win him over. "Kail is a tool for me. She's weak, feeble, desperate and annoying... and I'm in a position of power."
It's Jensa Member's turn to talk to Dustin. He accuses her of voting to evict Kail as the second vote. She denies it. She said maybe the same person did both deeds -- the mustarding and the vote. She said if he puts Zach up against anyone, he'll go home.
As America's Player, Eric should get Jen nominated for eviction. Eric puts it out as fact that Jen and Zach were the two votes against the house wishes. Kail and Jen, Nick and Zach... the pairings which must leave the house.
America's Player: Which catch phrase should Eric get going in the house?
I'd do that for a dollar!
Well, that's pretty stupid. I want the phrase to be "And Amber cried."
It's time for Dustin to make his decision. Zach is confident and almost threatening in his DR bit to us. Kail is worried. Nick feels safe.
The key order:
Based on competitiveness and strategy... Amber is safe. Jessica is safe. Dick is safe. Jameka is safe. Nick is safe. Zach is safe. Daniele is safe. Eric is safe.
Jen and Kail nominated. Jen -- strong competitor, Kail -- questionable behavior over the past week.
Dustin tells us that Kail is not a pawn and he wants her to go home. JenBot cries.
OMG - In the last shot of the show Kail has this odd pasted smile on her face like a mix of Betty White's Sue Ann Nivens (sp?) character on Mary Tyler Moore and a Stepford Wife.
I'm gonna have nightmares tonight!
