'Big Brother 9 ' - Live Blogged from the East Coast - 2/17
The show has started here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll constantly be updating this post. Please forgive any typos. And, of course, please feel free to jump in with your comments!
Oh, it's a memory wall. Matt's full of himself and how good-looking he is. Parker and James talk about how big Jen's mouth is about how great looking she is. Why aren't James and Parker going off about Matt? Of course, Matt told us, not them. Jen said because she was first on the wall, it means she will win.
Allison is SO not happy about Ryan having his girlfriend Jen in the house. She confides in Parker. Allison is threatening to reveal the "secret" that Jen and Ryan are boyfriend/girlfriend. Allison wants to convince Ryan to go against Jen. Ryan promised Jen he would choose to ally with her over Jen.
Amanda tells all that her father committed suicide. Although it's all probably true, I think she's putting the rest of the house through a bit of a guilt trip. She tells them that that's why she is always happy and smiling.
Even Chelsia thinks more of Amanda now.
HOH room reveal. There's a nautical theme and a photo of Amanda and Alex. Alex also has a cross he made from the WTC where his father died on 9/11. AHA! I just thought of who Amanda reminds me of -- Jason Bateman!
Allison is having real difficulties dealing with the couple situation paired with Ryan. She says she's done. Everyone (Parker and Jen) want her to just shut up and deal with it.
James tells Jen that Adam's name is the Hooded Warrior. Adam tells them he's uncircumsized. He shows them all. This is just too weird.
Allison seeks out Sheila for emotional support. Parker and Ryan discuss putting everyone onto Jen and Ryan beofre Allison spills the beans. He tells Alex and Matt. Alex is concerned that he waited before telling them. Now they mistrust Parker to an extent. Then it's off to tell Natalie and Amanda. Amanda is ticked that Jen kept a secret from her.
Allison tells Matt that they told her not to tell and she's mad that they did say something. Matt told her that they only told a few people. Matt tries to get Allison on his side.
Jen is way smug when confronted by Allison and freaks a bit. Allison just looks shocked at her reaction. Argue, argue, fuss, fuss. Now Sheila knows. Allison is pushing that she didn't tell anyone (she didn't come out and tell Shelia earlier), but Jen did.
Allison is crying to Joshuah and Neil about it all. Now the house wonders what other secrets might be out there. (Maybe they'll find out Neil is Sharon!) They all swear on the Bible that they know no one in the house.
Alex and Matt immediately click and promise to partner to the end. A new alliance is born -- Alex/Amanda and Matt/Natalie. They decide to put up Ryan and Jen and Parker and Allison ... not necessarily in that order!
Sheila and Allison grow closer. As a matter of fact, they decided they'll be lesbian lovers. They're having fun, but then tell Joshuah they're in a relationship. They ask him not to tell anyone. He's shocked. He's in disbelief.
Josh runs to tell Neil after he promised secrecy. Neil cracked up. Then they tell Chelsia they're partners and adopted a son.
Sheila talks to Parker about her issues with Adam. "Nothing he can say or do can redeem himself." Alex thinks Sheila is mean to Adam. Now Alex and Matt are defending Adam and Parker's just giggling.
Adam confronts Sheila, she runs off screaming expletives. The others think it puts a target on Sheila and Adam and Shiela is crumpled crying on her bed as the commercial starts.
Nominations today. Allison is worried and thinks that the Ryan/Jen coupling will get her nominated. Adam thinks if he and Sheila get nominated, it will be Sheila's fault for making him look bad.
I just can't stand Allison's voice.
Time for the nominations ceremony. Key order is: Sheila and Adam, James and Chelsia. Matt and Natalie, Neil and Joshuah.
They say that the reason is because of the previous relationship between Jena and Ryan. Allison thinks Jen made her own bed. Jen is crying and then acts stupid and smug in the DR. Parker is nowhere near smug. Alex thinks they should suffer.
