'Big Brother 9 ' - Live Blogged from the East Coast - 2/17

jackie's tv blog, Big Brother, BB9

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.

-Bethany-

PlaidChick said...

Nothing like a woman scorned...

Jackie-- I'm seeing more of Ashlee Simpson pre-nose job in Amanda

joy n said...

Amanda Really does love attention, doesn't she? Wish they would send Jen and Parker home.

anybodybuthillary said...

Allison is dumb dumb dumb....

joy n said...

Adam gave her an idea of what it works lick?

joy n said...

These people are all dumb. Think that's gonna help, Parker?

joy n said...

Once more, HG, this is a game of lies, secrets and deceit. They obviously came for the sex.

anybodybuthillary said...

Hahaha, they were threatening her???? wow...how dumb...

anybodybuthillary said...

Amanda's nose is HUGE!

Sorry, I can't help it.

But it is really annoying...

I don't like her voice or her game. Sorry about her father, but I don't like her!

joy n said...

Oh, the tangled web they're weaving now. Trying to keep track of who's who and who's with who and who's doing who is giving me a headache.

PlaidChick said...

The show has lost its mind......

Terry in CA said...

anybodybuthilary.....isnt Janelle looking a bit better to you these days?

anybodybuthillary said...

I tell you what...I'll never wish Janelle back in the game....

but these guys are sooooooo weird.....

anybodybuthillary said...

He didn't do anything wrong to her...good grief!!!

Adam's girl needs to GOOOO!!!!

joy n said...

I've just realized, I am watching this whole show in total disbelief. Is this really reality?

Meliss said...

Jen is freakin crying.....what a baby!`

joy n said...

Jen is so more than willing to get rid of her boyfriend. Guess loyalty is not their bag either.

joy n said...

Alex thinks they should suffer. Why not? We are.

Sydney said...

Geeze, is the show FAR behind!

And EVERYONE --if you haven't seen the fabulous, intelligent, engrossing and entertaining Showtime series DEXTER, they are starting it on CBS tonight at 10PM CST. Jackie -- if it's not too late for you to tape it or catch it, I would LOVE to hear what you think about it.

Though it's completed it's second season on Showtime, maybe becasue it's so good or maybe due to the writers strike, they've cut out a few cable-Ok cuss words and are starting it from teh first ep tonight!

Don't be fooled by the premise. It's not as gory or gratuitous as you may think... if any of
you watch it I'd love to hear about it.

Jackie said...

Sydney -- Oh, I have had my calendar marked for weeks for Dexter. :-)

Sydney said...

JoyN said " Alex thinks they should suffer. Why not? We are."

Too funny!!!

Sydney said...

You're kidding Jackie -- that's great! I can't wait to hear what you think. I think I was hooked from the first show but definitely give it two. The writing is really smart and how the lead manages to act this juicy part so well is beyond me. He's a normal guy outside while his internal monologue is so completely off... it's brilliant.

A great antidote to how low BB has sunk as far entertainment goes.... Petals -- let me know if you catch it. I think you'd like it?

Sydney said...

PS: I loved HOW Joshua ran when he went to tell Neil about Shelia and Allison.

Petals said...

Hey all! {Syd!} {Anybody!}
I still like Adam, I can't help it. I think he's a good guy at heart.
I like Natalie, even though she is this season's Scarecrow. And James is great.
Syd - I got into Dexter last year on Showtime, and have no idea how they will air it on network TV. I love it, tho. But for me, my heart will always belong to JRM. (pop quiz - anyonme else know how I'm talking about?)
Oh - and Breaking Bad has me HOOKED. Anyone else?

Petals said...

Syd - me too (the running)! It was the gayest run ever. But natural. How funny was that!?

nancy in pa said...

oh my.....does bb have to search high and lo for the least intelligent people on the planet? it amazes me that these people were able to get their act together enough to even apply. wow....there must be SOMWEONE who will break thru the fog and show a bit of smarts. PLEASE OH PLEASE....whats with the butt shorts?

Anonymous said...

Petals,
I am usually good at that game, but I have no idea. Please give another clue

Petals said...

JRM clue ~ Showtime

Petals said...

Nanc - I have to admit that what Amanda is lacking in her face, she makes up for in her butt. She does have a great a**. And since she seems to know she's a butterface, she shows off the one ASSet she's got...
(grrr)

Got it
Johnathan Reys Meyers

What do I win?
(please pardon the spelling)

Sydney said...

I watched the first ep of Breaking bad and figure I musta missed something because I didn't even feel interested enough to watch again. But it's getting amazing reviews across the board.

Petals, if you've seen what poor Natalie has been doing to the rep of womankind after hours, I wonder what you would think. It's sad.

Of this horrid crew, James is a standout. I actually have a fave and it's him.

Chelsia seems comparatively smart and she hasn't been as idiotic as the other girls. And Joshua is still someone I at least have some interest in seeing.

Petals said...

RIGHT. hubba hubba

Petals said...

Your prize: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rixWdIjaW2o
(hope you are a female, or gay)

Sydney said...

Anon -- good guess, I was still wondering, duh.

Petals, will you share him? Henry the VIII never stchupted so gooood. We have other Tudors watchers here. Did you like him in the Woody Allen movie -name escapes me now.

Petals said...

Poor Natalie is so clueless, it's almost endearing. Sad, huh?

Petals said...

Petals said...

Syd - there is plenty of JRM to share. This boy has my head spinning. I feel almost dirty when I look at his pics... but DAMN! Those lips, those eyes...his body between my ... sighs.

Petals said...

Match Point. Loved him.

Sydney said...

My god -- I checked the link Petals, hadn't seen all those pic of him before. Yum. If I comment anymore I'm going to sound like a snippet of this season's BB. We don't need any more of that.

Petals said...

I even bought Velvet Goldmine. And Match Point. And Troy (already had that one, but...)

Petals said...

I purchased alot of him from EBay - alot of Euro model fashion rags where he did pictorials when he was younger, like for Boss. Wow.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Petals,
This girl totally enjoyed her prize!!!

Petals said...

(switching gears) So when is actual eviction night?

Petals said...

Anon - do you watch Tudors? I'm a total anglo-phile, plus a JRM fan, so when that show premiered last year, it had my name written all over it!

Petals said...

Miss Jackie - do you watch Breaking Bad?

Anonymous said...

Actually Petals, I havent watched The Tudors, I gave Rome a chance on HBO and since I didnt really like it I never gave Tudors a shot.
But I now realize I should have, and with Showtime on Demand, I definatly will.
Thanks again.
BTW my name is Denise

Petals said...

Ouchie - migraine coming (part of the divorce settlement, it seems). G'nite guys! This room is like therapy for me.
Jackie - I just saw what you'd written about your surgery! Sorry, girl. When does that happen?

Sydney said...

Also - Delee is a big anglo-phile and she was telling me about a week 1/2 ago in our comments here about
some of the historical short cuts on the Tudors but she's a fan of the show as well.

Maybe we'll do a Tudors/Dexter discussion spot here -- though Dexter and Dirt might be a better fit, lol.

Petals said...

Denise - if you liked Elizabeth or any period piece like that, give Tudors a chance. They've really juiced-up the drama.
I've been Petals for so long, no one calls me my real first name anymore (unless it's The Defendant). hhaha... bitter divorce humor.

Sydney said...

I was wondering if your ex-hub looked anything like JRM... Or would that be an IMPROVEMENT? lol

Anonymous said...

Jackie... in your post describing the housemates, you said Matt was gay... is he?

Petals said...

Syd, Delee's right. It isn't nearly historically accurate (not that we'd really know..) Fromt eh bios & historical books I've read, they were pretty crazy back then, and hugely over-sexed. Henry VIII himself is proof of that, with all of his marriages.
Yeah, a Dirt-y discussion would be great. (great show title, too. Nice work, FX)
G'nite, must close eyes.
xoxoxxoxx

Sydney said...

Anon -- I wondered about that too. I thought ther were 3 gay men and one guys who said he was Bi... where did I see that? In the promo video clips that Jackie posted or the one that was a little CBS special on the show that Jackie put up here... Jackie - can you help us clear that up?

Tom`S said...

My intake on tonight's show; its possible there are other HG's who've known one another..though perhaps losing touch from one other throughout the years, for example probably vaguely knew one another while attending various media courses ( Matt/ Parker ) in fact Sheila/ Allison resemble one another..I try to keep in mind, this edition of BB was a rather quick casting, I actually don't think its so bad, I'm probably the only one who actually like this mixture of a mess, the confusion, I am also starting to feel bad for Adam, haha, yep this BB HG aren't the sharpest tool's in the shed, however its a quick replacement probably another reason BB isn't being shown on ShowTime. Heyyyy Dexter is going to be a really good show tonight, I generally don't watch any regular programming, however Dexter is an exceptional reasoning too.

Tom`S

Jackie said...

Before it all started, I was under the impression Matt was bi -- he said he'd lead on both the men and the women. Right now I'm not sure who, but I do think it was Matt although he's a horndog for girls.

not sure if any saw this

http://www.autismspeaks.org/big_brother_response.php


Response to “Big Brother” Show In episode 2 of “Big Brother 9” which aired on CBS on Feb 13, contestant Adam Jasinski referred to people with autism as “retards” and justified his statement by saying that he worked for an autism organization. Mr. Jasinski works for the United Autism Foundation of Florida , which has no affiliation with Autism Speaks. As an organization committed to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders and to diminishing the stigma and misunderstanding that has surrounded autism in the past, Autism Speaks condemns hateful language of this nature. We must continue to move forward to foster greater understanding of autism and other disabilities.

Lord, we are not even one week into this and the drama is out of control, and NOT in a good way!!

Can you imagine this group in the final week or 10 days?!?!

Way too early for all the sexcapades.... Their parents will be so proud of their babies. :)

The saddest part is that this group will probably not realize how completely inappropriate and childish they appear.

Ugh.

I really long for the days of the crews in seasons gone by. They were not perfect, but were typically interesting on some level.

dla said...

And ladies and gentlemen,

I LOVED the run!!! Laughed out loud for a few minutes over that one. :)

Anonymous said...

Sydney was thinking the same thing, far behind then years past.

dgmommie said...

Two things... 1) The show focused on the Jen/Ryan secret because they couldn't show all the sex talk and sex acts going on in the house on primetime network television. 2) Why didn't they mention Neal leaving and Sharon returning since that happened SO many days ago?

delee said...

I know...for BBtv...Valentine's Day will be a week late.

Unfortunately, I do not have Showtime...I bought the 1st season of The Tudors, so will not be able to discuss. So a year from now will buy the 2nd season.

meb said...

dgmommie...I don't think they could talk about Neil leaving or Sharon coming back because the end of the episode showed the Nomination Ceremony and Johshua was still there. It's amazing how ahead of themselves they get in the feeds but it takes forever for it to come out on regular episodes... Confusing.

Sydney...will watch Dexter tonight. Started watching it but couldn't keep my eyes open last night, so went to bed early. Did notice that they brought everybody up to date as to who he is. I wondered how they would do that so new viewers could understand what was going on.

I think the BB group forgot what they are there for and are simply playing house. They set the table for everyone and they cook for everyone. What happened to "fend for yourself...you're my competition and I'm not helping you to ultimately vote me out" !!!

They have reduced me to taping them and watching them when I feel like it. Where are the days when I couldn't wait for BB to come on and wouldn't leave the TV set for a second in case I might miss something????

Those were the good ole' days!

Anonymous said...

I've followed the show every season so far, but hadn't seen this group until last night. Just couldn't stomach the stupidity of the episode and the contestants for more than half an hour. Time to look elsewhere for entertainment. My sympathy to anyone who paid to see this!
