'Big Brother 8' - Sunday 7/29 Show - Live-Blogged from the East Coast

Jackie's TV Blog, BB8, Big Brother 8

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?
Sweet chicken!
Booyakah!
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!

I LOVE how they apologized to each person they gave the Slop to EXCEPT they said to Kail, "Congratulations!"

delee said...

Jackie said...

If he says booyakah, Jessica will think it's a yarmulke that the Amish wear. ;-)

PlaidChick said...

Jessica and Eric are so funny together. She really is funny.

My heart is aching for the English language tonight.... Oh, pleeeeese can we vote for I'D DO THAT FOR A DOLLAR??? It would be great because he would absolutely HATE saying it! Any of the three phrases will have his butt booted out, he'll sooo annoy the entire house! Then what, CBS??

ORKMommy said...

Plaidchic - we did get to choose the multiple choice. CBS had a survey up a few days ago where we could submit the sayings. I know a few of us submitted "And Amber Cried".

I refuse to vote because I think the whole idea is idiotic and the sayings are even worse!

I'm really not enjoying any of the shows except Thursday night. At least there's a few surprises and excitement...

joy n said...

And then Jen cried. Well. since Jameka is going to save Jen, please, Dustin, don't change your mind. GET KAIL OUTTA THERE!!! That smile made my skin crawl, too!

Anonymous said...

this is the most annoying season yet. annoying voices, annoying constant crying, annoying antics, annoying "america player and their stupid plays", but yet i keep watching.

jen finally showed real feelings. i do feel bad for her, if only they knew. i'm looking forward to eric getting caught. by the way, does he win anything for his silly involvement in all this?

joy n said...

And, YES, Zach is verrrry wird!

joy n said...

wierd, that is!

joy n said...

weird! Sheesh

sharon said...

All I could think when Dustin started to cry was.......he's been hanging around Amber way too long..LOL.

I just wanted to reach through the screen tonight and pop Amber one in the nose! First the damn shots of her red eyes and nose and her proclamation of ...I'm just so happy for Dustin! I loved it when Dustin invited them all up to see his HOH and then found the letter from his brother and Dick said they all should go and give Dustin some "private" time and Amber hung back and said...you don't want me to go,do U...and Dustin said...yeah! Loved it!! and so she had to say....I love you...as she left. PUKE!!!Then we all know from the feeds that once Dustin won the prizes in the POV,she was ready to send him home or down the river and now she hates him and thinks he "sold out".She is such a wack job and I soooooooo want her gone!!

Zach was beyond creepy,what with that comic book story and the group hug and I laughed my butt off when you saw all of them slip away as soon as he wandered around! What a terrible place to be ,all alone in a house with 10 strangers who all avoid you like the plague.

I honestly am beginning to think Kail does have an IQ of about 30,her use of the English language is atrocious. Do you think she finished high school??

Once again AC stinks!! I think I would vote for the dollar saying,if I cared enough to vote...but I don't. It's a big joke,CBS!!!

Lynn said...

I am boycotting America's Choice question tonight. It is so lame!

I bet that the comic book convention that Zach went to was for porno rags not Marvel or other main stream comic books.

Regardless of who else is nominated to go on the block to take Jen's place I want Kail to leave.

AlbGlinka said...

This show is not nutritional...

dla said...

And then I cried...

And, Clementine, I almost fell out when they showed Lurky McLurker moving in for the group hug!! I was howling!

And, then, I cried again. ;)

About this pet thing. I think what Amber was trying to say -- made difficult with Evel right in her face; he's confrontational about everything -- is that it isn't a matter of choice. If her pet needed medical care, it would get medical care and if her child needed it, her child would get it. When you love someone - pets included - you love them and you help them. Why should you have to choose between them or put one ahead of the other. You don't. That's a stupid argument. A pet is a family member - or should be. And if you aren't prepared for the responsibility of having a pet-including anything it might cost you to care for it-don't friggin get one! Take that Evel.-abigal

As for the Dick and Danielle cry-fest, I was getting so angry at Dick. Danielle was right. He does not listen to her. He just keeps badgering. When she started to say something he jumped right in. Why can't he just leave her alone for a while and stop pushing himself on her.

Lucy said...

Paulette, I'm not sure if either one of them is listening. Whenever Dick talks to Daniele she never looks at him. She rarely answers any of his questions and she cries through most of their private conversations. Dick does interrupt her a lot but most of the time it is to say she's not answering his question. Both Dick and Daniele need to listen to what the other is saying. I feel they need professional help to solve their problems and should seek it after the show. They are both a mess right now.

Anonymous said...

I think when it comes to Danielle, Dick has a seriousl problem. He is intrusive with her just as he is with the others only "with love," if you were to believe him. He really needs to take some anger management or at the very least get some professional help. He says he doesn't mean to hurt Danielle, meanwhile he wears T-shirts that say pretty much that he hates everyone and thinks everyone is stupid. Do you read those? Last night when he asked Danielle to hug him, you could see that she did NOT want to do that. No heart was in her hug. But she did it...I think to get rid of him. It's not that big a house, and the only place with any privacy is a toilet stall. - abigal
