'Big Brother 8' - 8/23 Live Eviction Show Live-Blogged from the East Coast
The big show is starting here on the East Coast. I'll constantly be updating this entry as the show airs. Please forgive any typos or misspellings and have a good time in the comments area!
So far, recap!
Julie says it's been an exciting and explosive week. She has the explosive right. Now recapping the veto meeting in black in white.
Jameka is happy that Jen replaced Amber as it means a better chance she'll stay in the game.
Jenth Degree is on the treadmill when Dick comes in. He told her that talking about not needing the money has had a big effect. Jen tells him she's not bitter. Then she goes to Daniele in the HOH room. The JenBot actually sheds a tear. They really shortneed this. The conversation lasted about 20 minutes in real life.
Amber and Daniele take off for their trip.
Jen is talking to Jameka about not wanting to go to the sequester house. Jameka thinks she disrespected the integrity of the game.
Ah, Jen hides her won stuff in prep for destroying Dick's cigarettes. And, she's cooking! Turkey burgers! Jameka shouldn't play with her bare feet as she talks. Dick thinks Jen wants attention. AHA! The cigarettes! She has them, to the storage room! Jumping on them! She hid her clothes so Dick couldn't destroy them, yet is destroying four cartons of his cigarettes.
Dick looks for them, mentions the deal to be nice and wants to know where she hid them. Everyone else just stares. Dick found her stuff and hid it upstairs in the HOH room thinking she had just hidden his cigarettes.
Jen approaches Eric and others saying, "I'll now perform ... eating." Everyone tells her not to, but then dismiss her as a cheater. She's called to the Diary Room. She explains to us that she received a penalty vote -- an automatic vote to evict her tonight.
They show the slapping his cigarette bit. Ah, they're showing it all! Must see TV! He was wrong to blow the smoke, but she kept at him. She slapped at him, yet he actually was pretty restrained.
Amber and Daniele are heading to the Big Apple for their Power of Ten appearance. A private jet. Now Amber says NYC is so cool -- on the feeds she dissed it. They will play against each other, then one will go for the big bucks. Nick is going to be Daniele's "friend, family member" whatever and Amber's cousin will be hers. Nick's Mohawk has gron in a bit. Oh, geez ... they showed the beginning. Amber is a ham. @@
Julie is talking to them. And Amber is going on, but not crying! Julie tells Jen she's the first person in 8 years of the show to break food restriction and receive a penalty vote. Jen thought she made history by being there.
Now the streak of Eric's streaking, etc. We're into commercial and the voting should begin soon.
Julie's talking to Daniele in the HOH room. She tells Julie she owes a lot of credit to Eric and Jessica. She says she would love to be sitting next to her Dad in the final two ... because he has a lot of enemies. @@
Talk with the nominees -- Jen says, "I'm Jen" No, she's happy and honest and doesn't fit in here, happy to come here, happy to leave. Jameka is honored and happy to be in the house, nice speech.
Jen has one penalty vote for eviction.
Amber votes to evict Jen.
Dick votes to evict Jen.
America votes to evict Jen (Eric)
Zach votes to evict Jen
Jessica votes to evict Jen
Unanimous plus one, Jen is evicted from the Big Brother house... but a commercial first!
Jen gives a big smile. Amberr hugs, Eric says as happy as she is to be leaving, they're happier to see her go. Zach hugged her. Jen said something about Daniele having her back, but I didn't catch it all. Ah, Daniele just said she said, "I'm glad you had my back."
Julie tells Jen she's one of the most compelling HG ever. She listed various Jen-actions. Dick mean things -- is it how he feels or strategy? Jen said it wasn't appropriate either way. She mentions she'll be on the jury. Jameka says although bad first impression, changed. Eric calls her fun and unique and interesting. Dick tells her she should have been gone long ago. Jessica is apologetic. Zach tells her she's a great competitor. Daniele wishes she had left on a better note and apologizes. Amber, crying face, says she's not as bad as she thought she was -- show off the beautiful person inside to the whole world.
HOH Comp -- "Tanks for the Memories" -- Evicted HG will get revenge. They're on dunk tanks. Jen gets to dunk them if they're wrong with the answers.
Who did Joe say was most in need of a slop diet? Zach or Jameka? All right (Zach)
Spelling bee? Eric wrong -- (I missed the whole question)
Jameka or Dick -- Carol give Bible to -- All wrong.
Nick prefer to see streaking -- Eric or Zach -- Amber gone, Zach gone.
It's between Jessica and Dick.Jen got to dunk Dick.
Jessica is the new HOH.
America's Player -- Who do we want out of the house?
I really, really want Amber gone. It's gotten so even her voice on the live feeds grates at me.
