'Big Brother 8' - Live Feeds ... or lack thereof

The live feeds have been blocked all day since I posted my TV Squad update. Since we're about an hour before showtime, I don't expect them to unblock.

At about 9 PM ET I'll put up the start of a live-blogging post which I'll update throughout the finale as it airs here in the NYC area.

The weather is clear but a bit cool ... please bring a sweater or light jacket to the comments party.

And snacks, don't forget snacks!

May the best Donato win! And, I hope to see you there ... at the post, that is.

Turned to watch it at 8 and oops not till 9....can not wait!!!

Becky said...

Jackie, again, thanks for the wonderful blog. You do an outstanding job. I think everyone is more excited to see the reaction to Eric being the America's Player than who wins the game. I especially want to see Jessica when she starts adding up and finds out that perhaps Eric was not giving her suggestions for HER benefit as much as for him to earn more money. Wonder what Dani will say when she finds out he made as much money as second place?

ORKMommy said...

Delee - I thought it was on at 7 here. I was rushing to get home so we could be fed and ready for bed by the time it started...just to find out I have a whole hour to go!!

The result of the "Name the Cow" contest is (insert drumroll here) Rosie!!! Thanks to Cat5 for the suggestion!!

46 minutes to go! Can't wait!

ORKMommy said...

Becky - I'm interested in the AP reaction, but more interested in Daniele's reaction when her dad takes the $500K!!

Nana in the NW said...

I think the best Donato is sitting at home---Dick's mom!! Hopefully, Dick will share some of his winnings with her.

ork--you named the cow??
Story of my life...day late and a dollar short!!

sam said...

i wonder how jess will feel when she hears about AP and do u think they wil split the money?

Nana in the NW said...

Becky I want to see the reactions to AP also. However, I think most of those will occur after the show when the cameras STOP rolling!!!

ShooToo and live feeds should cover the wrap party!

sam said...

38 minutes!

ORKMommy said...

Nana - I did see your cow name entries and they were creative. I think with all the talk of Rosie and The View, the name just seemed to work for me. I'm not a Rosie fan and NO I'm not calling her a cow!!

Jackie,
Down here in NE Florida the recent rains have actually cooled us from 95 to mid 80's...still not jacket weather!

No offense Becky. I am interested in the stuff you mentioned, but myself and maybe a few others are very much interested in who wins this game. In particular, a Mr. Richard Donato! If Dani wins, I'm gonna whine!

Tessa said...

I am ready to go. 30 minutes and counting.

joy n said...

Orkmommy! No Cowabunga? I think you're right, though, Rosie's cool!

ORKMommy said...

Her full name is Rosie Cowabunga Moolata, but you can call her Rosie.

;-)

ORKMommy said...

p.s. Cowabunga was her mother's maiden name.

Tessa said...

Orkmommy, you are a riot.

Tessa said...

Orkmommy, how do you get the picture icon on blogger?

ORKMommy said...

Blogger has instructions in their Help section. Try this:

How do I add my photo to my profile?

If you think I'm a riot, follow the orkmommy link to my blog about my daughter. She's a mini-me!!

Nana in the NW said...

Cowabunga--I don't know who suggested it but that was the catch phrase for the biggest fair held in the NW each year(The Puyallup Fair) last year.
Funny to hear that word again!! Maybe she should be called Nosy Rosie as a nickname since her nose is so predominate in the pic.

Deanna-I responded to your question on the prev. post.

Eric can tell Jess his money will be what he uses to re-locate to Kansas!

PlaidChick said...

Has it come to this? I finally has figured out the reason why we have to wait 5 days for the finale is so we all go through withdrawal.

Did I just admit that?

I would love to be a fly on the wall at the wrap party.

ORKMommy said...

Nana - I did not know there was such a wonderful history behind the word Cowabunga. I remember hearing it in surfer movies and on the Simpsons!

PlaidChick said...

OK Here is what I want to see:

1. Dick win

2. Daniele have a fit

3. Shock and awe over AP

4. Daniele cry when she sees Nick

5. The Jury questions

6. Amber Cry because a good person didn't win

sam said...

10 min!

sam said...

maryanne said...

The last show of BB and I'm already going through withdrawal! Thank goodnes Survivor starts on Thursday. I'm hoping that Dick gets the money but more importantly, I would like to see them work on their relationship. I hope next year they give a little update. I'm also hoping, since I don't have the live feeds, they show a few excerpts of "The Dick Show", that sounds interesting.

Glad Rosie got the Cowabunga for the middle name anyway. Very classy moniker!

PlaidChick said...

Anonymous said...

orkmommy....that is the best name for the cow I have ever heard.
Congrats

Terry in CA said...

orkmommy...that was me who just posted that was the best name ever....for some reason this blog was more anxious to post it before I could identify myself

Tessa said...

I'm actually liking the editing of the of season recap.

Tessa said...

Julies necklace has got to go.

Tessa said...

Wow it would have been 6-1 for Zach to win.

Tessa said...

Wow Eric you are good.
