'Big Brother 8' - 9/16 Show Live-Blogged from the East Coast

Jackie's TV Blog, BB8, Big Brother 8

The show is about to start here in the NYC area after a football delay. Remember, tonight's show is NOT the finale and we won't be seeing the jury questions. It's the season recap show and I heard there will be a focus on Dick and Daniele.

As it airs here, I'll frequently update this entry. Since I'm typing it looking at the television instead of my monitor and keyboard, there may be typos. I do that to prove I'm not a JackieBot.

Everyone is welcome to join in with comments.

Ah, the recap of the HOH part one comp.

Tonight the final two will take a look back at the most volatile, humerous moments of the summer.

Dick gives credit to Zach for turning his game on. Daniele made a more snarky comment. Now we see Donato celebrating again. Who woulda thunk it? Dick thinks he already won because he's improved the relationship with Daniele.

Daniele tells us it was worth it although she's hit the bottom many times. They have their feast and champagne. Dick is still stunned. Daniele thinks she's had the hardest time in the house emotionally over anybody. They show the start of the season when Dick came down the stairs all over again.

Into a montage of their bickering. Golly gee, I didn't like seeing this the first time around! The show then turned to a brief focus of them getting closer after the HOH comp part one.

In discussing who will win, they think each other will. Now it's into a montage of Evel Dick being evil to Jen. Jameka and Dustin are just ignoring it. He's waking Dustin up, then Amber ... all in his act to make them hate him and vote him out instead of Daniele.

A montage of good people and praying now. Jen walks through Jameka's prayer looking for a white belt for her bunny suit. Note Jameka is parying on Howie's "Jack Shack." Amber is praying, God bless you, God.

The Dick and Jameka shout fest with the clapping about the magical ping pong ball (POV choice) where she calls Zach a nobody. Zach looks down in his bunny suit. Yo mama!

Recapping Nick and Daniele, then onto the Eric and Jessica showmance ... er, romance. The move to Kansas recap conversation was kind of cute, but now it's to the smooching. Again.

In a promo, they mention they're looking for applicants for BB9. Who's game?

Jen is crying over her Memory Wall picture. Ah, the memories...!

The iced tea incident. I now realize that Daniele's voice in this reminds me of the Olsen twins on that old show.

Jen re-destroys Dick's cigarettes. The infamouse burn fight.

Tha Amber crying montage. The "hot mom" -- Jameka tells her she will be in a magazine. (Jameka doesn't mention it's probably MAD Magazine.) Now Amber is sure she has model potential. Now she's about to flip out on Eric... duck, Eric! Zach looks strangely incongruous wearing his bunny suit through this.

It's onto the fun things -- Zach streaking, Eric prancing in Jessica's dress. Jen and Eric wrestling. Onto the mysteries of the house. The mustard and hinky votes. They think Eric or Nick for the mustard, added Dustin in for the votes.

Talking about their plans for the the money, Daniele is coming across as positive (though she shows a different face on the feeds). Dick is happy.

Seaon finale Tuesday, America's Player revealed, jury questioning and the winner of BB8!

Daniele just said "Life's not fair" in reference to her & Dick dominating the game. She needs to take a dose of her own advise...life isn't fair Daniele. If the jury likes your dad more than you and it's not fair, well...

jimmyB said...

Dick couldn't even show an ounce of humility while Zach is walking out the door. That's arrogance--not strategy.

And I think that Jun & Gee; and Will & Boogie (didn't like Boogie) were the best teams ever. Daniele is the biggest whiny crybaby ever. More so in behavior than even Amber!

meliss said...

When he and she says that this is harder then they thought it would be proves (like 100 comments later) that hey KNEW they would be in the house togther.

ORKMommy said...

If this whole hour is gonna be Daniele whining, I don't know if I can watch.

Clementine said...

This is like a really bad episode of Dr. Phil. How depressing.

Anonymous said...

I agree with orkmommy...I'm gonna kill myself if the whole episode is of Dick and Danielle....this isn't the Dick and Danielle show...its called big brother.....i hope Dick gets out of the house and realizes how manipulative Dani is and throws her to the curb!!! Slut!

ORKMommy said...

Clementine - All we need is Julie narrating and it will officially be the worst recap in history!

Originally, I saw Danielle with 2 towels and thought she offered one to Zach, but this footage makes it like she gave both to Dick. Live feeds, anyone??

Clementine said...

The D/D reminiscing is totally staged, right?

Anonymous said...

Could Jameka's dress be any tighter or lower? And her language! Dick doesn't profess to be a Christian, and Jameka does. Her language bothered me more than his.

jones said...

dani is whiny and self indulgent, but that doesn't make her a slut so cool out with that talk.

meliss- they knew when they saw each other...
although I do remember seeing somewhere that they were almost cast together during another season, but saw each other and did not get to be on the show...anybody know?

Judy said...

For some odd reason, I have seen a softer side of Dick, Could it possibly be that he only came into the house just to rebuild his relationship with Danielle. Figuring she couldn't leave and he could work on it.

Anonymous said...

i realize now just how much i dislike jameka, but it's funny to remember her clapping in dick's face.

danielle - so sad, your dad did all of this with you in mind and you are an igrate.

i can't say how i would have acted being locked up with people, but given the outbursts, i would have surely said something. i could never have sat around and just listened to all of that.

danielle can't look any more disinterested in being in the house and being with her dad. what an azz.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone else wonder......

if since we're getting all these clips of Dick's horrible behavior to all the houseguests, WILL WE SEE Daniele's true colors on this show or is this edited to only show Dick's true colors?

Makes me wonder if the second half will be all of Daniele's behavior.............any ideas?

Comments with the word "slut" will be removed. Please don't use it, don't quote it.

i believe dani wanted to be on the show once before, but she wasn't the right age. this time, although she was only 20, dick had to sign a waiver on her. they all knew someone was coming in, i think it was jessica that didn't know who it was going to be.

at least i believe that's what i read somewhere along the way.

anybodybuthillary said...

This is such a waste of time. This is awful!

Dick is awful!

Jameka may have used bad language, but I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not perfect in my Christian life either so I have no place in questioning her Christianity. There are times when someone might question mine. Trust me if Dick said the things he's said to me, I believe I'd have to do more than slap in his face.

You can't have respect for someone like that.

They should give the money to Jackie. She's been much more entertaining that the EVIL D and D.

uzsoqi'm just dying here with the eric jessic moving to kansas thing. too funny.

this whole dick and danielle thing has me at a loss for any nice words towards danielle. she should be ashamed of herself.

i wonder if the show is making them do the walk down memory lane. also, does the diary room ask them questions or make them talk about certain things? i used to be of the opinion they went in their to blow off steam, talk to other people - now you always hear them being called in.

are the live feeds worth it?

i had so hoped that danielle and disck would use this time to their advantage and to their healing. i sure hope danielle knows how to contain herself when dick is awarded the top prize.

i had to laugh all over again at jameka clapping in dick's face. although i realize i don't care for her at all and never did.

I find it so hard to believe how these people just stand around while one person tears into another. I sure would hate to be in trouble and have them around. They would watch someone slit your throat! (I just saw Amber go off on Eric and everyone just sat there.)

I would just like to see Zack walk into sequester to see the reaction of the jury.

I'm sure we won't see any more of them until Tuesday, but that moment would be priceless!

Frankly, it does make me feel a little sorry for both of them. But more Dick than her...

They did a BIG segment on Dick's evil ways; berating houseguests, etc.........

Now tell me why we never saw a negative segment on Miss Dani??

What happened to "this sucks",
I hate everybody in the house", "this is so annoying"..all the whining would have made a good segment!!

Editing again trying to sway the viewers again, in my opinion!

Hi Jackie -

Belated Happy Birthday wishes to you!

Well it was obvious that they filmed this right after the live show was over... Dani is wearing the same outfit. They were riding high on the new F2...This accounts for her positive attitude IMO.

Even though I saw it all in real time, and Amber DID all those things, I found myself still suspecting CBS for choosing to edit Amber to look sooooo bad. Distancing themselves from her behavior methinks.

ORKMommy said...

Well, since Zach left several days ago I decided I should change my picture. This is my shout out to my home state, WI. Not to mention that I'm dating a dairy farmer!!

p.s. My word verification is pdisery. I think that should be a word! Joe, give me a usage for pdisery.

Tom in CA said...

Some random thoughts:

Seems to me that a potential HG (let's call him "Vinnie")might well be able to get away with this strategy on a future BB. Sidle up to each HG privately and whisper a straight faced threat of bodily harm to either the other HG or a family member of theirs if that HG were to vote to evict "Vinnie" during the course of the show. Of course "Vinnie" would have to make the threat convincing for this strategy to work. It doesn't seem that CBS would interfere with this strategy after seeing this season's threats.....

I was just daydreaming when this thought popped into my head. Next year, invite all the BB8 HGs back for BB9. Offer $1 million this time. See how the game plays out with the same players knowing what they know now.... That might be interesting. Of course it's contingent on Amber being out of therapy by then.....

ORKMommy said...

MB - Pink, green, frowns, smack...got it!

hinkyvoter said...

They wasted an hour on this? What's even worse is that the finale will be so crammed with stuff (the jury arrival of Zach,the Q&A of D&D, the vote,the reunion of all the houseguests and the America's Player reveal) that it will probalbly be rushed.

YES about OJ! He won't be in jail as long as he would have for what I believe he should have been in for, but he needs to serve some time. I was in Vegas last night at the MGM grand... the place is so big few knew of the events that went on.

Anonymous said...

I'm just 'speechless'...

I know Amber cried, acted crazy, and yes a tad bit out of touch with reality, BUT, did the wonderful editors have to show her like that? J. saying "you can be a model", and then having a still frame with cheeto in mouth....and the fat belly..come on guys. The poor girl is already going to have enough trouble on the outside. (mainly thanks to CBS editing) why must you salt the wound?

And as for Dick,
thank you for reminding me how uterly vile is truly is. I was begining to root for him the last couple of days afer getting fed up with danis attitude.

just a blurb from the local news report.

i hope they get him this time and i think they will. afterall, if anyone deserves it, he sure does.
----------------------

Simpson was to be booked on two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit burglary and burglary with a firearm, police said. The district attorney, meanwhile, said he expected Simpson to ultimately be charged with seven felonies and one gross misdemeanor.

If convicted of the booking charges, Simpson would face up to 30 years in state prison on each robbery count alone

Shout out to The Amazing Race which just won another Emmy for best reality show!!!! Now THAT'S a quality show.Can't wait for it to begin mid-season.

Well,that sucked big time!! What a huge waste of time! I had the sound off almost 90% of time because can't stand to listen to their voices,not one more time.That sucked,that sucked,that sucked. I still hope Daniele doesn't walk away with more than $50K.Damn it,Zach,we were counting on you!

I would like Eric to vote for orkmommy dairy cow to receive the money...if that is not possible, I vote for the ants in the kitchen to win! The ants did have to put up with all of them.

Orkmommy-love the dairy cow and I love the PACKERS!

Joe-just this one time, I hope you are wrong about Vincent coming in, that is just one too many from one family for us to handle in one season. I must say I did not think of having Vincent entering.

Jackie-thanks so much for the wonderful job you do.

See some of you next season in the BB Senior House. In the meantime, would someone let me know what swim wear they are bringing, so two of us don't bring the same one? That just would not be good TV, if you know what I mean. I also think we should make sure our fingernail and toenail polishes match our attire. We just don't know if someone will want us as models for their magazines when the show is over :)

Thanks everyone for the many post of fun times. Jackie's blog was much more fun and interesting than the house itself! Kudos Jackie!!!

Until we meet again, stay happy, healthy and safe.

Many are wondering if Dick will share his winnings with Daniele.
Wonder if Daniele will use her winnings to pay back the money she owes Dick? Wonder if Dick will have any money left after lawyer fees for taking care of Eric for his incest remarks?
Has anyone heard how the ratings have been for this season?

Nancy in Seattle said...

Ratings have been high...so expect to see some Dick types in the future. Ugh. I still prefer that he wins the money...and then hopefully when Danielle is whining yelling it all sucks along with all the houseguests she didn't like...and who didn't like her...one of them can blandly tell her that "life is unfair." She uses that line so blithly regarding everyone else...but somehow when it applies to her she wants a different set of cosmic realities.

THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS SO INCREDIBLY!

I hate football. It messed up my tape again so I only got to watch 13 minutes of BB and 40 minutes of 60 minutes. Now I have to wait until tomorrow and hope they put it up on the CBS website so that I can finally see it. BTW I hate 60 minutes too. Why do people have to like football anyway? Just a bunch of big brawny steriod filled guys running around grunting and knocking each other down. Gawd.

OK, I'm down with the whining. For now anyway. Please don't call me a slut. I'm really not one. I would be one if I had the opportunity and hadn't stopped drinking. I've got the boots for it and everything.

Why is everyone so surprised that Dani is being mean to Dick? After all, she didn't speak to him for 2 years. And she's been a snot to everyone else in that house since day 1.

I can't wait till Tuesday and watch Amber go off on her. I too agree it's probably sour grapes. But then again, perhaps Jameka and Zach got to tell them how Dick and Dani acted once they were all gone. Or maybe they got to see the tape of the Endurance Comp before they talked to Dick and Dani. Plus I don't think anyone really liked either one of them all that much to begin with. I wonder why? It's strange really when you think about it after all Dick did apologize to them after treating them like crud and cursing them out. Maybe he did tell them the truth about themselves and it hit a little too close to home. I don't know and I truly don't care all that much either. I don't know even know why I'm talking about it. I'm not going to anymore. I'm going to bed.

BB only shows you want they want you too see...if it would of been eric/jessie or zach/jameka then that would be the footage u would see at the end.

Danielle is a whimy person and not treating her dad with respect.

Unfortunately the only reason no one like her is because of Dick.
At the beginning if you remember
Jameka/Amber gave Danielle and hug
when she went out too cry as soon
as she saw her dad walking down the stairs.

Dick just spoke the true and use that in the game..Some of the
others are not out-spoken only when it was their time too be in the spot light(HOH).

Amber & Jen cried too get attention

If Dick was too bad in words BB
would of pulled him out of the show


BB won't let anyone go off on each other at the final..

They will all see what idiots they
were in the house when they get home and watch the tapes.

RiseandShine said...

The show was actually painful to watch. Daniele wasn't into it at all, and she made some horrific faces. 21 is 21, but she is a difficult child.
Jen and Amber certainly looked a bit nutty, didn't they? @@
I did like watching the replay of Amber going off on Eric, although she should never have told him (or any living soul) about that stuff.
I'm ooking forward to tomorrow night.I want to see the sour grapes and the reaction to AP.
God Bless You and Amber (when she gets out of there) God.

Terry in CA said...

My husband hates Dick with a passion...ranted and raved the whole time what a jerk he is..on the other hand, poor cute little Dani should win so she can get bigger hooters for her job.
Ok, so I was ironing and I was thinking...how cold we be so polar oposite on this?
I doubt if I would be friends with Dick, but I think he has a softer side and he really wanted the reunion with his daughter. I hope he wins cause she will blow the money....when she said "how can you do all that on 50 thou?" I wanted to slap her smirky face. You know he will spend every dime doing whatever would make her and her brother happy...she wont even commit to a European trip with him.
I say. God Bless my kids my family and Thank you God Im not as dysfunctional as I ever thought I was.
