'Big Brother 8' - 9/13 Final HOH and Live Eviction 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, so refresh the page to see the latest!
And, as always, please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
Right now, Julie is on ... but first, it's a trip back to the Bunny Hop -- the part one from the other night.
Julie tells the rules again. Daniele tells us that she told her dad that she's doomed if it has anything to do with cold water. Mud is shot as if from guns! They're hopping!
Dick has started his intimidation of Zach. Daniele went from laughing to saying how cold she is. The bunny did slow went she went off. She heads to the shower crying.
Zach is giving a rather odd tirade back at Dick. The bunny is dead, but they didn't mention it. Daniele is pep-talking Dick -- "Vincent's watching now and extremely porud of you." Five hours in and they haven't mentioend the dead bunny in the middle of the comp. Dick is wearying. Daniele tells him she loves him.
Seven hours in, Dick is looking bad. Daniele tells us watching her father in so much pain and freakin' cold "sucks, it just sucks." Zach is shivering now and then. After Daniele keeps telling him its okay to quit, Dick does.
Daniele tells us how proud she is of him, Zach even gives him a pat on the back. Dick is wrapped in a big towel, smoking and shivering.
Dick tells us that he feels he let his daughter down in addition to himself, but might not have gone on as long as he did. Now it's Daniele's turn to peptalk Dick.
Zach tells us that he officially "broke" Dick like a drill sergeant.
Dick and Daniele are going to the second part -- Chain of Command -- Clear pieces of a puzzle with a wavy red line must be moved from one tank to another to connect the houseguests with the red line.
Dick seemed more confident with good reason - 24:09 minutes for Daniele ,12:48 Dick. He wins the second part and will go up against Zach in the final part.
Dick tells us his goal is to take Daniele to the final two with him -- their fairytale ending. Zach thinks he can beat Dick in a mental game as he already has donwe in a physical game.
Julie is asking Daniele about their relationship, stepping block. Dick said Daniele was why he stayed as long as he did. Zach tuning out Dick, he says his legs and mind were numb.
There will be an Eric and Jessica romance/showmance segment coming up in addition the the final part of the Head of House.
Aw, Eric and Jessica are in love. Dustin and Amber think so. Then Jameka arrives. Dustin says he, Jameka and Amber will hang out. Jameka introduces the DVD of the nominations -- complete with Zach's "muscle" speech which impressed the jury.
No Jen? Hmmm...
The final part of the HOH is ready to start -- Dick and Zach. How well did you get to know your former HG this summer. She will read statements by a former HG, give two choices of a finish.
First round, goes to Dick.
Second -- both wrong, Jen thinks she was stronger than Daniele
Round thee - both right
Round four - both wrong
Round five - Both right
Last question - Both wrong
DICK WINS -- HE's the final HOH!
Zach is a gentleman, offers them both his hand. Dick is out of his mind with joy. We won EVERYTHINg! We DID IT!
Time for the live eviction, Julie says they must go through the formal steps. She tells Zach to speak. Zach tells them he played against the best of the best and doesn't expect to be saved, Dick can remember his invention when he has the money. Daniele is giddy about being there with her Dad. "There is no deicison, Zach you're out -- Daniele we won the WHOLE thing!"
Dick is dancing and kicked the trash pail. Dick and Daniele are happy, happy, happy!
Julie talks to Zach -- biggest game moves -- lay low, ride on Dick and Daniele's coattails. He then interacted more socially, but it didn't happen. Zach thinks Dick's tactics didn't work on him, but worked on others. Zach thinks they're both good people, will be friends eventually. He said he never really aligned with D&D.
Goodbye messages -- Daniele considers him a friend. He hurt her feelings, but it's a game. Sorry. Dick -- You put up a hell of a flight, but you're not a master strategizer. Sorry to see you go, but it means Daniele is here, so not sorry.
America's Player - Who do we want Eric to vote for to win BB8? Daniele or Dick? He also gets to campaign for the person.
