'Big Brother 9' - 3/23 Show Live Blogged from the East Coast
The show has started here on the East Coast after being delayed by March Madness basketball (grr). This entry will be constantly updated as it airs. As always, comments are very welcome!
For a change, we're starting the show with a recap of the last show! What a novel idea! Matt just got evicted and Adam is the new HOH! And now we see it all again in black and white after the show theme. Matt is evicted once again! And Natalie is sad.
James tells us that it's their own stupidity they brought him back. He's happy he got Matt out of the house.
It's Day 42 and Natalie is crying as her beloved Mattie's photo goes black and white. Sharon thinks Nat feels she's lost the game and her "soulmate." Adam feels pigeonholed into an alliance with Sheila and Ryan.
Oh, now Adam won HOH again! Adam really doesn't want it -- he doesn't want to make decisions. Sheila says "we'll" seek vengeance like she won. Natalie is acting like she won. Chelsia wanted the HOH bad and thinks it will be a tough week. James thinks everyone's fair game with Adam.
Natalie immediately goes to Adam, so does Sheila. He's their hero. Poor Adam. He tells Joshuah he didn't want to win. He thinks people are both nervous and fake around him. He doesn't care that Sheila is proud of him.
Then it's Ryan's play for him. Ryan plays the Boys Club card. Adam just looks buggy-eyed.
Natalie is still upset about losing her Mattie. Joshuah thinks Natalie is already like a lost puppy and he's glad to see them separated. Sheila comforts her, tells her it will be fine. Natalie tells us in a DR session she will be strong. She tells the others that she's had to be strong her whole life.
Natalie seems to have had some issues with people getting close and leaving her in the past. Of course, she doesn't quite get that Matt doesn't think of her like she thinks of him.
Natalie tells Chelsia she already knows what will happen this week -- someone from her side (Chelsia) will be going home. Now she's determined in the DR sessions. Ryan tells her that Adam is easily swayed by people and she has to work on him. She tells us she already has Adam's HOH reign planned and it will be war against the other side.
Sharon is calling the guinea pigs "beebies" -- babies. Joshuah mocks her in the DR room, then shoots himself with his figure. Joshuah thinks they don't understand her, all they want is food. Sharon loves them. They're her fur-iends.
Time for Ada's HOH room. Wow, in one photo he loks good. He was a cute kid. Aw, doggies. He has baby food. He tells us he likes it, but is totally embarrassed. (I actually like the banana stuff myself, though haven't had any in years). Natalie wants some baby food.
Joshuah and Sheila talk in the bathroom. She asks who will go up, he tells her that he (Josh) and her just to freak her out. Now her stomach is hurting her.
They do a gay Josh and Straight Adam bit. Joshuah tells him that he's his bitch and made a deal. He told him he'd help him out, not put him up and what he told Sheila. They go in to see Sheila. Adam plays along. Sheila is stunned. Joshuah is just about laughing. He tells us it would be a good move for him to put her on the block.
America can get involved in this week's HOH comp -- details at cbs.com.
Adam calls for all to gather in the living room for a very special luxury comp. It's for the new movie 21. We see the preview the HG saw. They're thrilled. Sheila is the biggest movie buff ever, of course. The backyard is done up like Las Vegas with all kinds of gambling. The game of blackjack is beatable if you know how to count cards. The cards have the HG face and number. Be the first to ring in at 21. If right, you get a chip. Wrong, out of game. First to four chips wins and invites three others to see the movie.
Ryan gets the first chip. James is the first one out. Adam won a chip. Sheila is out not to any surprise of Joshuah. Ryan has a second chip. Joshuah is out. Natalie has a chip. Ryan has his third chip. Ryan has his fourht chip. He won the comp. He chooses Adam, Natalie, and James. Sheila is upset.
Are you a gambling man? VIP trip for two to Las Vegas and $5,000 to spend. He has to risk losing the movie passes, they will go to other group of houseguests he didn't invite. He would have to win a game of blackjack.
Ryan risks it all for the 21 grand prize package. Ryan stays at 18, dealer 19 and Ryan lost. Now Sheila can see her movie. Ryan is happy for the other group -- Joshuah, Sharon, Chelsia and Sheila get to see the movie.
Natalie is praying to God and telling us how she reads the bible for strength. She tells Sheila that she was looking for signs. Eight curtains. Eight vases, eight ducks, eight sayings. She's found seven groups of eight. She neds one more. She will keep counting. She looks at the der head and says okay. Huh?
The table shrunk. It's that time of the season! Natalie is now thinking it has more to do with eight -- eight letters for Evel Dick, maybe he's coming back. She's sure there's some relevance.
She works on Adam for a Chelsia/James ticket for the block. Adam wants to nominate Sheila to show they're not working together. Natalie tells him Sheila is no threat. He's worried they'll come after him, she keeps talking numbers and he needs to get rid of the stronger players. She doesn't want him to put up someone from their side.
They showed a promo asking for applicants for BB10, epected to start in July.
Nominations today. James tells us that he'll go after him if he puts him on the block. Sheila is worried. Joshuah thinks Adam will stay true to their deal. Adam thinks he's made up his mind already and it's time for nominations.
Adam gives the shpiel, no one has done him wrong, and he feels what he did is not so bad. Key order: Natalie, Sharon, Ryan, Joshuah, Sheila. She looked like she was going to cry. He told her not to thank him.
He nominated both Chelsia and James because he didn't want to backdoor. He thinks they can play to keep themselves in the game. Natalie tells us in the DR that that's what they get for messing with her. Adam thinks Matt will be happy. Chelsia tells us that Adam will not be safe next week. James tells us that it will come back to bite him in the butt if he gets off the block.
