'Big Brother 8' - 8/28 Show Live-Blogged from the East Coast
The show is starting here on the East Coast. I'll be updating this entry as it airs. Everyone is welcome to jump in with your comments and observations!
We're visiting Recap City to start out, of course. Jessica has just nominated Zach and Amber. Zach is telling us he'll get Jessica if he can. Amber believes in God saving her. Dick is really happy, as is Daniele.
Amber is talking into her necklace like it's a direct microphone to God. Amen.
Zach is worried that he's on shaky ground. Daniele tried to be a bit of a comfort, but not much of one.
Jameka joins Eric and Jessica in the HOH room, they're joined by Daniele. They said Zach looked like he was going to cry. Jameka tells us that she hopes Amber isn''t the target and she hopes it's a backdoor move.
Amber thinks Zach will go unless she's being used as a pawn for them to backdoor Dick or Daniele.
To the Smitten Ones. Flirting on the lounger. This is an older conversation -- the husband of 80 years one.
Oh, now they're playing Gregorian Chants or something to Jameka's cry praying. Jessica walks in on her and thought she had fallen. She hugs her. Although Jessica seems a bit surprised, she handles it well. She tells Jameka she's into her church at home, so she understands religious feelings.
Zach goes to Jessica and says he thinks it makes sense. He pushes for him to be removed and a backdoor plan for a Dick removal. Or Daniele. Jessica says "hmmm-mmm" a lot, but doens't seem enthused. She tells us in a DR session that she doesn't really trust Dick and Daniele although they have an alliance with them.
Now they're showing the houseguests Amber and Daniele's trip. The HG don't think Drew Carey is really the new host of The Price is Right. Daniele cries in the house, Amber cries on the show.
Dick and others are very nice about it, telling Amber she did well. Daniele cried because she didn't see Nick.
Eric tells us he likes Jessica ... again, still. He crawls under the covers with her after taking off his shirt. He kisses her. She lays there like a log, then giggles. "It's about time." BB played the moment for all it's worth. Perhaps 25 cents?
Time to pick players for the veto comp. Jessica picks Daniele. Zach picks HG Choice and goes for Eric. Zach tells us he thinks there's a better chance of Eric using the veto that way. Amber picked Jameka. Dick, the only one left, is the host.
Zach tries to work on Eric pre-comp. I love how the show editing hints the veto is used.
Time for the comp! It's a scary rat-filled swamp. They have to stand on a tree stump and find the rat with the answer to a riddle asked by a hungry cat.
It's the Cheshire Cat, Cat Scratch Veto, the first answer is Dustin. He was number six to go, enemy to one named Joe/ parading in cape and crown ... Jessica is eliminated.
The answer is slop. Concoction is crude, barely passes as food. Outlook looks bleak when you eat this for a week. Jameka out.
The answer is Nick. Who could know, he'd be the fourth to go. His heart rang like a bell for Daniele. Daniele last to her stump, eliminated.
The answer is Jen. Eric beat Zach to the stump although Zach tried to push him off. Zach elminated.
It's down to Amber and Eric. Her vision will come true. The answer is Veto. Eric wins VETO. Zach hugged Eric giving reason for Daniele to speculate there's something between them. She voices her concern to her father. They know Jessica doesn't want to put up Jameka. "We have to get Jessica out," says Dick.
America's Player task -- He actually jokes about it being Dick, but then says we're being good to him with Jessica. He barely finishes the task with a brief hug and a peck.
Amber cries to Eric that she doesn't want to go home. I don't know, I don't know, should I be worried, etc ... it's like speed talking. Eric tells her that he will honor what Jessica wants to do.
Alone with Eric, Jessica tells him that she's worried about trusting Dick and Daniele. "It might be the biggest mistake ever." Eric tells her they made an agreement with them. Jessica voices a bit of doubt about Eric to us, but I don't really see much doubt on the feeds. I wonder what they said to her to get that response.
Now it's time for Eric to decide what to do with the veto. The meeting == jis eyebrow goes up. Amber says he should use it on her, but will respect decision. Zach will live with his decision. Eric told them he talked to all this week. He says they're all serious threats to him. They say to expect the unexpected. That's why I AM choosing ... not to use the power of veto this week.
Now Amber says he's evil and has no soul. Zach thinks Eric stacked the odds against himself.
Eric tells us that he knows we want Amber to go home as we wanted her nominated twice, so he didn't change the veto.
America's Player -- Which of the two nominees should go home this week? Zach or Amber?
