'Big Brother 9' - Live Eviction Show Live Blogged from the East Coast

jackie's tv blog, Big Brother, BB9

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?

Bummer on the blogger outage. I love reading all the comments post eviction and HOH from the ET/CT and PT folks. Good news is, I'll probably get a lot more work done this evening after the show. :)

I absolutely dislike Allison! OMG. She NEVER shuts up. She thinks she is running the show. I hope the kick Amanda and Alex out and then Allie/Ryan on the block! Adios. JV KC

Jackie said...

The outage is only for ten minutes and they're usually pretty prompt.

you know what cracks me up? how teh couples call each other honey and baby and little love names. these people don't know each other. just cracks me up.

Sydney said...

Julie:

Top Half : Ski Buunny going to church (a broach?)

Bottom half - Dominatrix (with a Chanel flair -- the boots are diamond pattern quilted)

joy n said...

James dyed his hair to match his red shirt. Better than the pink!

All this hunky-dory stuff is a little unbelievable. It can't last.

Maryanne said...

Good evening everyone.

Was the show always on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday in past seasons?

I was glad they gave James the recognition he deserved. Looking forward to seeing his story that's coming up.

Not sure who I want to see gone, and I think Sheila is mental.

Maryanne

PlaidChick said...

Julie isn't bringing up Nekkid Pool Party BB Style 9, nor what Shiela and Allison were really fighting about

monty924 said...

That's good news, or is it? I must have skipped over the 'ten minute' in outage. So who does everyone think is going?

PlaidChick said...

Julie is dressing like she's in the mountains, give me a break

PlaidChick said...

Mayanne, No, it use to be Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays, I hate the current schedule

Anonymous said...

these two are cute, aren't they? tuned down version of america's couple from last season.

Terry in CA said...

I dont why but I am anxious about this eviction....
Thanks Jackie for all the hard work!
Glad you got some sleep...well deserved!
It was very warm here today..so the hamsters were probably out sunning....

Maryanne said...

P-chick, thanks. i didn't think it was the same schedule. it's not the schedule this year that bothers me, it is really the players. I'm waiting for them to interest me, although I think the HOH couple has a little something going for them.

Are Allison and her guy both a little whiney or is that just me in a mood?

joy n said...

Sheila just can't seem to help herself, can she?

PlaidChick said...

Natalie, the cast sucks honey.....

monty924 said...

Dang! Another week with nasty Natalie.

PlaidChick said...

Hold up, they act like the couple's don't discuss how they're going to vote.... it's not like they're going to disagree at the last second and walk out the door themselves....

monty924 said...

I hope that Alex does indeed get another chance to come back in as a single. He got screwed!

Anonymous said...

oh my goodness, wonder if she will pass out again? LMAO sniveling and weak. the poor guy, he's only fault was having her as a partner.

PlaidChick said...

It's a damn game, give Amanda some valium, I agree bring Alex and Parker back

Anonymous said...

No Julie, not emotions. AMANDA GOT IN THE WAY of Alex's game.

Meliss said...

I teared up when Josh appologized to Amanda...I like Matt and Alex, they should have booted the 2 girls....lol

Maryanne said...

HOH - I would like sharon and joshua to win. How about you?

Anonymous said...

Is it just me or did Chelsia's friend look and sound just like her?

monty924 said...

I see buzzer malfunction coming!

I thought at first it was her sister too...lol

Zoetawny said...

Peeking again...then I don't have to watch...but I will even if it's not wholeheartedly.

sydney...

Can't wait to see Julie's outfit. I loved the colorful description.

Jackie...

I'm glad you got some much needed rest today and you will be 100% very soon.

Guess my Mattalie eviction graphic is moot now. The "epic and ruthless" plan went amuck. ;) I think I would have preferred to see Natalie gone but at least we won't have to listen to Amanda's voice.

PlaidChick said...

I got the one right!! And I was joking!!!

Maryanne said...

I must be psychic!!!!

mel;iss said...

Smart those 2.....its going to be an interesting week!

Delee said...

Well I can predict the future.

Matt and Natalie will be nominated!

Anonymous said...

anon 8:48 - i thought first it was her mom or sister - that they looked like family and then julie said is was chelsea's friend. talk about they walk alike and talk alike.

Divyesh said...

I can't wait to see the way Josh acts this week. I hope he terrorizes Allison.

PlaidChick said...

I'm glad they won, I was laughing that none of them knew the answers

monty924 said...

I think Sheila and Adam are sure bets to go on the block next. I'm guessing Ryan and Allison will go with them.

Terry in CA said...

Well I think J & S will truly rule..they are the only ones that arent conflicted about their partnership...they are playing the dang game!

PlaidChick said...

BREAK THEM UP, it's coming!!!

Maryanne said...

I am predicting:

Nominations are going to be Sheila and Adam and Matt and Natalie.

Good night everyone. Enjoy your evening.

meliss said...

hmmmm, what does that mean for next week???????

Delee said...

Julie just said a NEW beginning for BB9 will start next week!!! Help clarify, I missed how Julie worded it!

Anonymous said...

Darn, I meant to add

Matt and Nat will win POV and Allision and Ryan will be put in their place and voted out.

Good night

joy n said...

Finally, some changes! Joshuah and James seem to have an alliance of sorts and I think Matt will probably be the next to go. He has a tendency to make his own decisions. Ryan seems to kiss whose ever butt he has to in order to keep himself safe. And Adam, who stupidly let it be known tonight that he was keeping Matt here no matter what, may not be too trusted anymore, so I'm betting they put him up with Matt. I don't even mention the women they're paired with because the women all seem disposable to these guys.

After next week, I wouldn't be surprised to see most of the women leave one by one. The one exception may be Sharon.

Terry on CA said...

Im wondering if the surprise for the evicted couple is they are automatically HOH ? that would sure put a spin on things...or, they can say who can come back to the house....

Sasha said...

Hi Jackie, glad you got some rest! Hope you're feeling 100% soonest!

Maybe now some of the HG's will start paying attention to things. It was like watching a test where only two people had studied at all. LOL. I know some people here had mentioned how it didn't seem as if the HG's were focusing on things like the cues/clues in the house and you were SO right!

I'm afraid I'm pretty unfocused myself as far as these people go. Usually I'd have a clue who might be nominated based on who won HOH but with this group I'm still not sure of who is truly with whom and it's all a surprise to me. Ouch, I think I may be as pathetic as the HG's.

Very interesting to catch Housecalls. They had the casting director on one of their shows and she's just in love with the cast...anyone who stands out thrills her. Ok, different perspective I guess.

When someone called in to Housecalls and commented on the HG's along the lines of how the majority here seem to feel...Gretchen (host) seemed to think the commenter was just being negative...G loves the drama. Hmmmm, I'm still with the "these kids won't make any parents proud" group. And yet, I watch. (That's going to be my EPIC catchphrase for the season ROFL!!)

Terry in CA said...

Sasha...great comments.
Im thinking that Gretchen may get her fanny booted if she agreed with any of the "negative" comments.
It seems we used to be able to vote for favorites and alos see a Blog by the HOH ....where is that now?

Sydney said...

Terry-- I saw on Jokers that there was an HOH diary when Alex and Amanda were HOH. Have you looked on CBS.com then click community and it will be there... here's a link to James and Chelsia's blog(that's what they are calling it) from there.

http://www.cbs.com/primetime/big_brother_9/community/hoh_02.php

Delee said...

Joker's has the newest HOH Blog and it should be on the CBS.com site

DriedPapercutsAndChickens said...

what gay porn

Purrbal said...

How can everyone say/believe that Alex had no part in that??? Did he NOT get super jealous of "his partner" being friendly with another dude? He cause some turmoil too. Now for me I was glad to see them gone because her voice was soooooooooooo grating. Besides that many times the first HOH goes home. JMHO

monty924 said...

It was AWN as soon as the feeds came back on tonight. There are reports that Joshua has to stay 5 feet away from Allison as a result. There was quite a stir that I'm just now catching up on. Plenty of youtubes to see what happened.

Sydney said...

Why no messages from Shelia and Adam? has that happened ever before on BB where there's no goodbye tape from any of the HG's? I don't think so.
