Big Brother 9: 3/30 Show Live Blogged From the East Coast
The show has started here on the East Coast. This entry will be constantly updated as it airs. As always, comments are very welcome!
We have to go through Chelsia's meltdown once again. And her eviction. And now again in black and white after the credits, Chelsia leaves and takes them all on again. Natalie tells us she was in college for three years. Sheila thinks Chelsia said a low calss and disrespecful thing to a 45-year-old. Joshua feels like he lost his sister in the house. James says it sucks that someone you're close to is gone.
Day 49 -- The aftermath of Chelsia leaving continues. Sheila thinks Chelsia was jealous of a 45-year-old woman. Joshush tells us HOH is crucial for his alliance. Natalie feels so good to know that America thinks she's inspirational. Joshuah knocks Natalie's brain power.
Nat wins HOH again. God waited for the right time for her to win. Sheila thinks Natalie deserved the win and wants vengeance or closure. James thinks Nat's win sucks. Joshuah is kicking himself for losing to Natalie in a mental comp. Adam thinks something is in that holy spirit and he's happy for her.
Ryan thinks the others are shocked and surprised that Natalie won a mental comp. Now she's quoting the bible and thanking God. Ryan names them Team Christ. Adam says he can't knock the Lord, Team Christ!
Nat's on the sevens again. Seven is all over in her life, you know. Tomorrow starts week eight. She's got Adam into it as Ryan bites his nails. Joshuah thinks she's crazy and her theories change as it suits her. Last week eight, this week seven. James points out that it's the eight week, not the seventh.
James looks ridiculous in his shortie robe and hoodie. He goes to Nat. Tells her she needs to trust him. She asks God what to do.
HOH room time. Joshuah noticed that all of Nat's pictures were of her ... except the dog ones. Her letter from home has her choked up. Quick cut to James as she reads her father writing that she was smart .. I swear he wanted to snicker. Sheila turns it to about her in the DR missing her son. Natalie says her parents don't talk and got together for the letter. Adam shed a tear or two.
Natalie hides for hide and seek and the boys look for her. Old footage! Her knee is sticking out of the laundry basket. Josh tells her. She wants to hide again. Joshuah keeps rolling his eyes. They're looking for her and find her crammed in under the sink. How did she fit in there?
Sheila asks Joshuah how he told his parents he was gay. He was 18 in Austin and wanted to go to a party. His mother told him he had to come home, finally he said he was gay. Mom told Dad, they didn't talk about it much at first. He feels better for having told them. Sheila loves his parents now. She makes valid points, but she's SHEILA! I hate agreeing with Sheila, but I must!
Joshuah and Sharon talk -- if James has to go home, he's a scary dude and fierce ... he must!
James is up visiting Natalie again. She tells him she doesn't have a partner and she trusts him more than she trusts Josh. He wants to work with her. They decide to work together and no one knows. She talks about putting Joshuah up. They call final two now. She considers it in the DR to us. She admits he kept his word to her, but Matt went. He points out Chelsia is gone. She's in a quandry.
Time for the food comp! Natalie hosts, gets food all week as HOH. One at a time BB will call them to the yard for a smashing food comp. Adam hates the thought of slop. They're isolated in separate rooms. They're kind of in Kansas. BB gives them the choice of going on slop or food. If not enough choose slop, they'll go on slop. It's all about greed. No matter what, three will get slop for the week. Sharon thinks the guys will all go on food. She chooses slop.
Adam is up, reads it. He automatically goes for food. Sheila thought it a tough choice just like Sharon. Joshuah had issues too. He picks slop thinking the four who picked food will end up on slop. Ryan is figuring out the numbers, too. He goes for slop (but I don't think they showed it). James chose slop, too.
Natalie tells them they reveal it by crushing watermelon. A mority will go on slop. Less than goes on food. Sharon, slop. James, slop. Joshuah, slop. Those three now on slop. Anyone from now on who picked slop gets slop. Ryan, slop. Sheila, slop. Adam, food. One stroke ... and he's thrilled!
James is up in the middle of the night, hard to sleep alone. He talks to himself while playing pool. He cried alone. He played chess alone. It sucks, you know.
Adam and Ryan are creating a whirlpool in the pool swamping Sunglass Duck. Okay.
Natalie is looking at Matt's picture on the Memory Wall. Sharon, Ryan, Joshuah laugh about it. Joshuah thinks Matt should go in the Witness Protection Program or get a restraining order. They think she's stalking his picture.
Ryan tells Natalie that she should backdoor James. She tells us she's still contemplating the deal from James. Her "struck by a dumb stick" look comes over her face as Ryan talks to her.
Nat explains her duties as HOH. Ryan is't worried. He wants James out this week. Joshuah is concerned. James is worried but has hope. Natalie says it's her decision and she will do what's best for her. She thinks it's a good strategy and the noms won't come back to bite her.
It's time! She tells them it's difficult and she must do what's best for her in the game. Key order: Adam, (Sheila smirks), Sheila, Ryan, Sharon. James and Josh are up.
Joshuah -- you are a threat and have never been nominated. Jame s-- I want to believe your word, but ... she goes on to say James and Joshuah are probably working together. She tells us James' word means nothing to her and she can't trust him. Joshuah says he's no longer a block virgin.
