'Big Brother 8' - Sunday 8/26 Show Live-Blogged from the East Coast
I apologize for my hours of absense, alas... had stuff that had to get done. I hate that, don't you?
The show has started here in the NYC area. As usual, I'll be updating this entry as it airs. Please join in on comments!
So far, recap, recap and a happy Dick. Oh, all of the cryptic comments by Jen as she left! Jessica is wondering what she should know. Amber is happy Jameka is still around. They're still congratulating each other on Jen's exit.
Now they're re-celebrating Jessica being HOH. Zach feels safe, heh. If God doesn't think Amber should get the HOH, it's not meant for her. @@
Amber is justifying her loss by the fact God meant NEXT week she'll win HOH! Jameka thinks it might be a great week for her because she's close to both Jessica and Eric. Amber thinks Jessica might put Daniele and Dick up. She loves God.
Eric is flirting with Jessica. The woobie listens.
Eric tells us he has no game when it comes to women. But compared to an Ogre and a 44-year old, he's the best left in the house.
It's time for Jessica's HOH room! Excitement galore. Dick thinks the cheerleading squad is ugly. She got her Booyah shirt.
Now Jessica is trying to find out what Jen wanted her to know. Amber said it's that Eric has a girlfriend and there's a lot more to it. Jessica doesn't like cheats and looks pensive. Amber tells Eric, too. Eric looks uncomfortable, but then he does that a lot.
Eric does much work on Amber, tells her there is a relationship -- it comes and goes. He tells Amber he has tried not to cross lines in either direction. He wants to talk to Jessica. He tells us that everything he's done towards her in the house has been true and honest.
So he talks to Jessica. She seems quasi-okay with things.
It's time for Dick and Daniele to argue! He wants her to take vitamins. "He wants to be all parenty and stuff!" Zach picked up enough to get an "I'm on your side Dick dig" to Daniele. Dick asked her if she ever took any responsibility for her part in their break-up. He never left, he never abandoned her.
Y'know, I don't like it when the show airs their dirty family laundry.
Good, Jameka and Jessica talking in the HOH room. Jameka suggests putting up Dick and Daniele. Jessica is acting like she might do that ... most likely for the benefit of Jameka. She tells Jameka she doesn''t know what she'll do, but she won't put Jameka up. Jessica says that Daniele is a bigger threat to her than Dick is.
Luxury comp time -- jessica gets to pick the teams and goes for girls and guys. She also participates. They have wetsuits and a sudsy thing in the backyard. The prize is a Big Brother shopping spree. They must get into their birthday suits. Amber thinks her boyfriend will kill her. Daniele said she's modest and her father is in the house.
Clothes have letters which spell things like toga and Jenitard. They have to put on the clothes with the letter and hang it on the line. I personally would have abstained. The guys are separated from the girls, but still...!
Heehee, the guys spelled goat while the girls saw toga in it, as did Dick. The guys are totally dazed. The girls are going at it with a final of bunny suits! Shrieks of joy! They win! They have two minutes to put on as many of the new articles as they can. Inside the house there are racks and racks. The guys watch wearing robes and yell advice.
Amber says she's not as small as she looks. Jessica took the mannequin. I think it was her anyway.
OMG -- Amber thinks she has the hair and the face, and the body to be a top model. She tells us through tears in the DR that it's the future for her. Jameka gives her encouragemnt. Eww.
Zach pleads his case to Eric and Jessica, tells them to put up Dick and Daniele.
America's Player - Who should Eric get nominated? He's thrilled with the choice of Amber and guarantees it.
He talks to Jessica, tells her that Amber doesn't trust them. Jessica tells Eric that Jameka suggested Dick and Daniele. She knows her nominations didn't hurt her the last time, but has to think out her strategy.
America's Player -- Which houseguest should Eric kiss? (He blew that this morning with Jessica!) I want him to kiss Zach or Dick!
It's time for the HOH nominations thoughts. I love how the HG has to say it's the job of the HOH each week like we don't know. Jessica tells us she has to put up two people who aren't a threat to her this week, maybe take out a power player?
Time for the cermony. Jessica says the game gets harder each week because she gets closer to people each week. She said some people have been working with her, others have been since day one and others haven't been there for her at all or too little.
Keys: Eric, Daniele, Jameka, Dick.
Nominated Zach and Amber, feels that he hasn't been with her the entire time, nor has Amber. Zach tells us he actually has to work this week to stay in the house. Aha, he admits floating!
And Amber cried. "I'm not mad at you, God. Help me!"
