'Big Brother 8' - Season Finale - Live-Blogged from the East Coast


I screen-capped this image from the blocked feeds and kind of took it over! I received a note from Zoetawny (posting from an Internet cafe) -- she's sorry to miss the end of the season.

Here on the East Coast, the show is starting. As it airs, I'll constantly (well, very frequently) be updating this entry. Please feel free to comment and have a good time! Please forgive any typos as I'm watching the show, too!

We're into a brief season recap now. Dick just re-won the final HOH. And the show should really begin soon.

Look! The blocked feeds are on the plasma screen!

Zach arrives at sequester after Dustin least wants to see Zach. Jen wants to see Dick walk through the door ... and it's ZACH! Eric tells him he would have won six to one.

America's Player -- Who should Eric campaign and vote for to win? Dick. Eric thinks we chose wisely. The jury doesn't seem to like Eric's idea. He goes into car salesman mode, talking up Dick and down Daniele. Amber looks like she's going to cry. Jen is very against Dick, but all of a sudden Amber is defending Dick and telling Jen whe flipflopped.

They start looking at the game the two played. Zach brings up the competition winning. Eric brings up Dick's victories. Amber says Dick played for two people. She said Dick played "awesome." Jessica is pro-Dick win, too. Daniele is the pimp, E.D. is the ho according to Jameka. Evel or Evel Spawn will win comes from Dustin.

The jury questioning -- help me in comments if I don't type fast enough, guys.

Dustin -- Dick, knowing that your daughter said I'll carry my daad with me because he's a terrible person and I'll win. Dick is hppy, strongest team.

Amber for Daniele -- Why give the vote, you're a pathetic person for doing what you did to your BF with Nick. D -- I don't want your vvote if based on personal life.

Jessica -- Who other than Daniele to sit with (to Dick) -- Pnly Daniele. Tough decision.

Eric -- Dick -> each jury member deserve to be in the final two? Dustin, Jen, Amber.. do not deserve, mentions Amber and good people. Jessica didn't bloody hands, Eric played best, Jameka was given chance, Zach almost made it.

Zach - What have you learned from each jury member -- Daniele will take Eric's humor, Amber heart and Mom of the house. Dick learned from Dustin to be careful with power, says Jen has a real person down in there, Jameka best hearted person, Zach run for the money don't underestimate will and heart.

Jameka - Not using your father to advance in the game, biggest move. Eric thing, backdooring Jen

Jen -- Hello, it's me, don't respect you as people. Dick did you build relationship with Daniele? Dick shocked w/question beginning to build normalcy, ends with if you don't know you're an idiot. Daniele thinks they made a lot out of it and there's no one esle she wants to sit next to. Dick played the game hard, strategy to work with Jessica and Eric. He feels the worse about turning on Jessica and Eric. He did a lot of the dirty work. We won.

Speech session over, D&D alone -- she accuses him of campaigning against her.

Jury coming in. Amber looks HORRIBLE! Jessica and Jen look nice. Eric looks Eric-y, Jameka very pretty. Zach looks Zach-like. He should have worn a bunny suit.

D&D are in the house, Julie is out with the crowd and the jury. Daniele says it was nice to spend time with her Dad and she's happy. Time for the jury to cast their votes.

Jurors put each key in the box, one statement.

Eric -- 1 - Clearcut choice good luck
Jameka - 2 - Vote for one whose game she respects
Dustin - 3 - Based on strategic action, not just words
Jen - 4 - I'd rather not, but must
Zach - 5 - Longest, blah-blah
Amber -6 - Congrats, close to both, based on game strategic purpose, whoops
Jessica - 7 - Voting for the person I enjoyed more in the house, may the best Donato win

The first five evicted will be coming in next.

Julie is with Dick's Mom and his son Vincent -- Daniele's grandmother who raised her and her brother. Charlotte is happy that they made strides in rebuilding the relationship. Vincent says he's always like that but it got him where he is in the game.

Nick's hair has grown in. He gets to talk to Daniele. Awkward says Daniele in a high voice.

Carol is asked about Jessica -- kind of proud, but there were some personal words. Joe said he liked watching Dustin fall apart, but congrats ... you got far. Dustin doesn't reply. Mike was rooting for Zach. Kail not surprised that Dick made it that far.

Time to reveal the big twist -- America's Player. Tells jury and Donatos. "One of you has a secret, one has not played alone, one is not who you appear to be."

This is HILARIOUS! I couldn't type through it.

Jessica is speechless. Not mad at him.

Dick benefited from the AP -- Julie talks to Dick. He thought he made a great power play and it was all Eric. Awesome, wow!

Daniele -- Knew mustard and votes, hilarious.

Dustin -- Eric can sell anything, enjoyed paradise. Jameka says it makes sense to her, she never could trust him. Jen now understands America mustarded her shirt. Eric tells Dustin and Amber he's sorry. Eric tells Jessica that he wanted to tell her for so long, but everything he said to her about them was true.

Julie tells them Eric cast the vote for America tonight.

The reveal of the votes...

1. AmERICa -Dick
2. Jameka - Daniele
3. Dustin - Dick
4. Jen - Daniele
5. Zach - Dick
6. Amber - Dick

Dick wins BB8!!!

Last vote not read yet as only four needed to win. Daniele taking it well.

Last vote was Jessica voting for Dick to win. Dick's going on a trip. Daniele is in the WE WON mode and is ecstatic.

Nick looks fat for Nick. Daniele asksed Julie if she'll be at the wrap party. I think she's starstruck ... over Julie Chen? Puh-leeze!

Y'all happy with this outcome? I think this was actually one of the better season finales. The America's Player reveal was better than the twist itself.

Your mama and your daughter

Joe in NY said...

This is just getting interesting...

I think the first 10 minutes were a waste...

Let's just get at it, CBS. The shows 25% over!!!!!!

PlaidChick said...

Nope none of these sour grapes can get past they got outplayed

meliss said...

ok, Eric is making all great points. Dick should win out of those 2. He did all the dirty work and as Jameka said, Dani reaped the benifits.

ORKMommy said...

Sorry Amber, calling a truce is not forgiving someone. Jen called the truce to save herself some misery.

I can't stand Wamber!

Joe in NY said...

I still love Jameka best.

Looks to me like Jen is the one taking it most personally. I think that's kind of interesting because:

a) she hated Dani so much
b) she thought she was such a gamester, you'd think she'd respect game
c) next to Zack, she seemed most immune to Dick's crap

PlaidChick said...

I was wrong-- I really thought Dustin would be sitting around saying I'm giving Dick the money to drive them apart, but he's being way too personal about it

ORKMommy said...

I think Amber thought she was gonna "lead" the jury. She didn't look too happy when Eric called the refocus while she was trying to bash Jen.

GOOOOO ERIC!!

Tessa said...

Thank-you Jackie, I got left behind in the last post.

joy n said...

This AP challenge may saves Eric's butt when Dick watches the show. Hopefully he won't kick his butt for those "incest" remarks.

Those guys all look good, don't they?

Anonymous said...

Jen was jealous of Dani. Dani's skinnier and yes prettier. And she got Nick.

Joe in NY said...

plaidchick,

I kind of don't blame Dustin, he got the most personal and threatening attack from Dick (IMHO)

Meliss said...

JACKIE!
Thank you for all your hard work this season!!!
HUGS!!!!!!!
I miss our AOL LDRS boards...lol

Aww Jani looks beautiful!!

OUCH!!! AMBER!!!!!!!! OUCH!!!!!!

Jen and Zack think it's funny. Just like me.

Whoa Amber, that question seems a little out of line.

ORKMommy said...

Woah!! Daniele bitch slapped Amber!

GOOOOO DANIELE!

meliss said...

WOW, Amber is a bitch!!! That was an awful question!
i read that they gave Dani hair powder...is it or is it dye?

Tessa said...

You go Dick....I love it.

Joe in NY said...

Dick is my hero - how's that for turning Eric's question back on him.

PlaidChick said...

Amber is going to have a nervous breakdown

Anonymous said...

From Amber I learned to not use drugs.

Tessa said...

I was just thinking that Dani's hair definetely looked like it had been done.

ORKMommy said...

Amber didn't want to play the mom role. She wanted to be the hot chic!

Joe in NY said...

I think Dick is trying to get Dani to win, he's definitely antagonizing the jury.

maryanne said...

darn, now we are going after julie? i hope not, i think she's gorgeous! she married well too..

i can't believe cathy christian with the pimp and ho comment.

man, these guys really have taken this personally.

dustin makes me sick.
i love dick's response to him.

omg, i can't believe amber would question her like that.
GO DANIELLE, perfect answer

grow up jessica, that was strategy in dick and danielle's game. get over it.

interesting quesion from eric.

you have to hand it to dick, he's honest. jerky and mouthy and vulgar - but honest.

what is RO-ger? what's that all about?
interesting question from zach.

jessica is a snively brat. look at those faces she is making.

these people SUCK, they really SUCK. (my words)

maryanne

Tessa said...

Dick seems like he is not trying to get their votes. What did Dani have against him. I don't think he is campaigning for their votes.

meliss said...

Danielle, sincere NO, Dick, I can see it in his eyes that he is being sincere and all the jury is rolling there eyes!

pickles said...

I don't like the fact that Evel seems to be "giving" the money to Daniele. His offensive and distgusting habits aside, he played the better game.

Tessa said...

Dick didn't have an alliance with Eric he had one with us.

Woop. There it is.

ORKMommy said...

Turn on the bitch-o-meter, the jury is gone!

Whine, whine, whine. What is she talking about.

in defense of cik, he was only explaining the game. he needs to slap that whiner

Oh, she's whinning again.

Joe in NY said...

I can't believe Dani's turning on Dick after that nice things he said about her and just wanting to get to the finals with her. She is so...Dani!

Amber looks horrible.

So that's why Dani was so pissy the other night!

Jessica looks so pretty. She's too good for Eric.

Jameka too.

PlaidChick said...

what is with the same hair-dos?

ORKMommy said...

Wow...Amber's welcome was pretty subdued compared to the others! Even Jen got more applause than she did!

It seems all Dani does is whine!

Im sorry but Jessica is so damn cute!!!!!!!!
I would give my left leg to look like her!

Amber better watch how she sits or we are going to get quite a view.

PlaidChick said...

I think Daniele is as delusional as Amber-- I didn't see Dick campaigning against her, if anything he wants her to win the money.

Joe in NY said...

I've gotta believe the jury saw through Dani's insincerity - she is just not a good liar. She and Eric both have more tells than anyone I've ever seen. LOVE to play poker with them...

anybodybuthillary said...

They aren't going to take anything from the house! You can't teach cocky people anything!!!

Can't they say, he's trying to piss off the jury for Danielle! Don't buy it...DICK TO WIN!!!

Lesa said...

orkmommy remember Amber said stuff that the world heard!! I am sure she is going to be surprised when she is in the real world tomorrow.

pickles said...

Amber doesn't look horrible, she's gonna be a model. What's the matter with you guys? *snicker*

I'm all atwitter!!!

Jess, Jen, & Jameka look hottt! Amber looks pregnant.

Joe in NY said...

If I see one more ad for Kid Nation...ugh!! (Sorry, Jackie, I know you have to recap it.)

Tessa said...

Maybe Amber already knows that her inappropriate comments were received badly across the nation.

maryanne said...

this is awful. here dick is trying to explain his game play and he was straight up and the brat can't accept it or even begin to understand what he was saying. she turned it again on him.

i really hope she gets the smaller amount.

i hope the camera is straight on jessica's face when eric's role is revealed. bye bye kansas

I am not sure who is going to win but it seemed Danielle got the votes.

PlaidChick said...

I'm thinking Dick didn't win this.

pickles said...

The comments from the jurors make it sound like Daniele won. :(

Joe in NY said...

It did kind of sound like a lot of them were leaning toward Dani: Dustin, Jess, Jen, Zack

plaidchick,

the gillter is fake tanning stuff, it's suppose to 'shimmer'.

Tessa said...

I say Jess's goes to Dick.

Anonymous said...

Dick 4-3.

ORKMommy said...

My guess...

Eric - Dick (we know that!)
Dustin - Dick
Amber - Dick

Jen - Dani
Jessica - Dani
Zach - Dani
Jameka - Dani

I hope I'm horribly wrong!!!

Anonymous said...

i don't think i've ever heard such worse final vote comments, or maybe i just don't care enough to remember. honestly, no matter how they played the game, they played it. jealousy over not being in the final two is really ugly.

mayi said...

Wow, I thought they were leaning to Dick. I guess we'll soon know.

Jackie said...

Jessica really didn't hang out with Daniele -- I think she enjoyed Dick more.

Tessa said...

Eric-Dick
Zach-Dick
Jen-Dani
Dustin-Dani
Amber-Dick
Jess-Dick

I can't believe Jameka respects Dick. It could well be 6-1 for Dani......UGH!!!!!!!!! (Not that Dick will mind)

Sorry, Jameka-Dani
That would be 4-3 Dick Wwins

pickles said...

This sucks, I think Daniele won. Did anyone see Nick in the audience?

ORKMommy said...

Oh my...Howie gained a few pounds!

maryanne said...

even if dick gests second place, it won't affect him the same way it would danielle. he will graciously accept it, be happy that he made it in more ways than final two and accept his win. he will be very happy that his daughter was the BIG winner.

i can't say danielle will react the same way.

HI CHARLOTTE

Eric really looks ""upset"" as they showed it. He doesnt want Jess to think he doesnt like her. No matter who wins (DICK!!) I will cry...lol

This is gonna kill Daniele to know that America wanted Evel to win. So I guess in a sense if Evel doesn't win on a personal note I am satisfied.

ORKMommy said...

Oh yea...Julie hasn't asked Amber anything. She's talked to everyone else! Maybe she was instructed to stay very far away from that time bomb!

Joe in NY said...

Only 10 minutes left in the summer!!!!!!! Booooooo.

I hope they reveal the votes quickly, I'd like a few minutes of reactions - particularly from Dani if Dick wins.

I wish they would have some type of follow up in a few weeks after they've all had a chance to watch the show. I'd like to see what their thoughts on AP are once they see how well Eric manipulated the votes. Dick thinks he played such a great, hard game, but Eric really had the best and hardest game IMO.
