'Big Brother 9' - Live Eviction Show Live Blogged from the East Coast
It looks like we'll just get the show in under the wire here -- Blogger has a ten minute outage for maintenance expected at 9 PM ET. Yipes!
But the show has started here in the NYC area and this post will be updated constantly as it airs. Please share your thoughts in comments! Right now, they're recapping Operation Condor, etc. The girls went to the hospital and all have a new perspective. The veto was not used ... and now we're ready!
Oy, my. Julie Chen is wearing boots. She looks like a biker chick! But first ... she talks Operation Condor and the swinging pendulum.
It looks stupid for the girls to be wearing bikinis while the guys are dressed. BB should have made the guys wear bathing suits, too!
I wonder how many times they'll show Amanda collapsing. Her blood sugar is still low and the doc told her to eat five meals. Of course, she's supposed to be on slop, but...
It's raining again. Matt tries to buddy up with Adam. Adam has his back.
Sharon realizes that Matt and Natalie are the strongest team and this would be the perfect time to evict them. She campaigns. People listen... even Adam, but he says he will be voting for Matt to stay.
Matt coaches Natalie on what to say to Joshuah and Sharon to keep them safe not knowing that the tide has turned. She promises Joshuah that he'll never go up. Natalie thinks she has a special job with them, but it just ain't so.
Ryan wants Amanda and Alex out while Allison wants Matt and Natalie gone.
The vote will be live, but we get taped DR segments. Adam and Sheila are pro-Mattalie.
Julie is checking in with the HG, tells Amanda and Allison that she's glad they're okay. Amanda thinks everyone is closer. Sheila thinks her relationship with Allison is fine, but goes on about things being said behind her back ... has learned to keep things to herself. She was worried about Allison's health scare. James gets applause for helping out Amanda.
Alex aid it felt great when Amanda returned. (Yeah, right.)
Life without drinking cups and hot water was miserable according to Matt. Sheila says the slop diet is the best diet ever -- she's lost five pounds and it tastes nothing like oatmeal.
Jame and Chelsia kindred spirits coming up.
DR room segment with Joshuah and Sharon -- she wants Mattalie gone, Joshuah wants Amanda gone.
James and Chelsia's friends are going to tell us why they're a perfect fit. They think they're both caring and passionate people. I notice BB hasn't mentioned the gay porn. Heh.
Julie talks to the HOH couple -- she reminds James he promised they wouldn't nominate Mattalie, he explains both couples were the strongest up so one would go. Chelsia has no regrets. It will make it hard for others to trust them, but. James says most of the HG are materialistic and have no desire to find themselves. Chelsia admits to being a girly-girl, but has common ground (dive bars) with James.
DR with Ryan and Allison -- Ryan definitely wants Alex and Amanda out, but they don't seem to care for either couple.
Time to talk to the nominees. Alex and Amanda -- She, ups and downs, apologizes and asks for one more chance and pleads for Alex. He says it's family and he doesn't want to go home, loves everyone, keepin it real.
Matt and Natalie -- Thankful and blessed, BB did great job pikcing cast, doesn't want to go back to the BEAVER State (once again), Matt -- hard decision, nervous, I love you.
If a couple doesn't agree on the vote, they're immdeiately evicted.
Votes are to evict
Sheila and Adam -- Amanda and Alex
Joshuah and Sharon -- Alex and Amanda, reluctantly
Ryan and Allison -- Amanda and Alex
Amanda and Alex are unanimously evicted.
Hugs, tears. They didn't look too shocked at all. Amanda isn't going to hold up too well with Julie.
Julie asks Alex about taking more of the blame for the eviction because he didn't campaign to save himself. He now says it's 50/50 blame. Amanda campaigned. She thought it would help them. Alex stayed true to his word. Alex still thinks Amanda is a beautiful woman.
Goodbye messages: Allison said they ignored her, Ryan said they had it out for him, Joshuah apologized for the comments he made to Amanda, Natalie loves them, Matt says Alex was his boy in the house. Nothing from Adam or Sheila.
HOH comp time. There's a nautical theme and it's called Words of Love. The questions are about the lvoe quotes all over the house. If they buzz in and are right, they eliminate another HG. Women first
Sharon eliminates Allison. Sharon eliminates Sheila. Sharon wins the ladies round.
Guys up. Ryan was wrong, eliminates himself. Joshuah eliminates Matt.
Joshuah and Sharon are the new HOH couple. Julie congratulates them and Sharon said they studied. They both want pictures from home. Matt says nice things about Alex.
Supposedly the evicted couple next week will get a surprise no one will expect and the season will begin a new chapter. I would guess it's the breaking up of the couples play. They have to do it to have a full-length season. But I wonder why the COUPLE will receive a surprise. A reprieve? Only one goes?
