BB9 - Review Post up on TV Squad, Houseguests Up

My review of last night's show (watched at a horrible hour here in the NYC area) is up over on TV Squad.

The houseguests are getting up in the house. Sharon and Sheila are in the bathroom and during short feeds blocks, BB must be trying to get Ryan and Adam up.

Great review, Jackie! My small contribution last night was very basic. Again, I have no idea how you do what you do, but you do, do it so well!

I had it Tivo'ed as my husband was playing Folklore on his PS3. I wish I would have known so I could help out. I had fun doing it last year...

Just curious...does anyone think the guinea pigs are wearing earplugs? The tone Sharon uses with them and us almost would have to send them/us in for hearing aids soon, along with new teeth from clinching them together when she speaks. And what's up with her the other night Whoo-hooing as loud as she thinks she has to?

It sounds like from your post Jackie, that the guys are not moving too fast this morning. Maybe they stayed up too late hanging themselves on the staircase.

I cannot wait for it to be over and hopefully we will see a mixture of people in BB10...we can only hope for that. I would like to see BB have more people in their late 30's and 40's and a few early 20's to see how the young ones could survive. Just a change up.

To me, not that I have been there, doesn't it seem like BB is just like being in jail?

Good afternoon all. I'm all about Adam for the win. He's the only one left in that house that I can stomach any more. Which is very funny, because he was the first person I hated in the beginning. I think if he makes it to F2 he's golden for the win. I'm still nervous about what Ryan will do with the POV - he might just throw Adam to the wolves like he did Natalie. Those boys knew good and well if they split the vote that Sheila would vote out Natalie - thereby solving the problem for them.

sue said...

Ahh, more of the Jacob story from Sharon. This time told to Ryan, who didn't seem to know that wearing 'white pants to a bowling alley...who the he## does that anyway' made a person trashy. Sharon's words.

Ryan readin the blue draped Bible,Sharon wearing a dress, no sight of the others.

Adam will be a fool to vote out Sheila, but I think he will do it, out of his twisted notion of loyalty to his bro, who will backstab him in an instant. Sure, you say, if Adam votes out Sharon then he also has backstabbed Ryan, but no, they are not the same, because Ryan will do it TO Adam directly in order to take Sharon to F2. Or will he? Who knows what any of these liars will actually do.

I really don't like Sharon anymore. She has taken Gnat's place now, in the sense of, when the four of them are just sitting around talking, she's the one who you know is thinking about gameplay every second, while the others are talking about other stuff. Gnat was exactly that way too. Sharon flew under the radar because she had a "what the hell" attitude about whether she was voted out, and I think it was genuine, she really did not care. Except now that she DOES care, it's obvious and obnoxious.

And I don't like Ryan either.

RBennie said...

I don't know why Ryan is so gung ho to go to F2 with Sharon. I don't think he can beat her. He's assuming that he will have Matt, Natalie, Sheila and Adam's vote, but I think that is a very big assumption. Why should Natalie vote for him? He didn't vote to keep her. If he makes it to F2 it will be by backstabbing Sheila and Adam - so why should they vote for him. Sharon is in a position where she really hasn't had to backstab anyone and since she's always on the block she hasn't even had to vote anyone out! The way I see it, she has no real enemies in the jury and could vey well win it all. I think the only person she would not win against is Adam - I think she realizes that too, which is why she wants him gone so badly.

formerly anon said...

rbennie, you make good points. Maybe Ryan is just playing both sides so that he's covered - if Sharon or Adam wins HOH, both would take him. If he wins, he'd probably actually choose Adam since at least those "3 votes" aren't a lock for either of them like they are, seemingly, for Sharon.

So maybe Adam and Ryan F2 is really the plan after all?

sue said...

I would like Adam to know that Ryan and Sharon have been an alliance for a long time and that Ryan has protected her in the game. Adam doesn't know that, does he? I think that is the one key piece of information he doesn't have. Maybe I missed his knowing, though.

RBennie said...

I think you are right Sue, the Ryan/Sharon alliance seems to be the only secret alliance that has remained secret! Although for the life of me I don't know why Adam and Sheila haven't caught on to it yet. Neither Ryan or Sharon are very good actors.

formerly anon said...

sue, refresh my memory about when/how Ryan helped Sharon. Last week we know he voted to keep her, but that was really only a gesture cuz they all knew Sheila would vote Gnat out. What else has he done?

sue said...

I can't quote chapter and verse about Ryan helping Sharon, because of my memory being non-exisitent. : )
But, I remember various times she was on the block when he went to various HOH and talked about keeping her. She was up so often that they all blur to me. I remember his being very cagey about it, saying things like "I really want Sharon to go", but the other guy is a bigger threat. Does anyone remember when Sharon was the target and the thinking changed for her to stay? One time (and I have forgotten who was up) I remember writing here at Jackies that Ryan would have some work to do to convince the house to keep her and before long that day, he was in HOH trying to get the one on the block with her voted out. Obviously, it worked, since she is still here. It is one reason I noticed that Ryan was working the game while seeming to not be. Her safety came from him, at least some of the time.

It is around noon in the house. Sheila and Sharon talking, past game and in general stuff, with no boys on camera. They are waiting and Sheila is saying she thinks the game ends Sunday. Sharon thinks BB has a 'huge' job of getting all the people picked up at the airport for the finale. All the fans, friends and former hgs who will be there. She thinks BB will need more time than just Sunday to accomplish that.

I meant to say earlier that I had no problem with someone wearing white pants (slacks/trousers) to a bowling alley. : ) In fact, I don't think it ever ocurred to me to wonder about that. That was a quote from Sharon and it seemed to slightly puzzle Ryan, even though he answered 'yeah, right' to her about it being a label for the girl who wore them. Sharon mentioned it multiple times, the girl in question being one who 'made up' a story about Jacob and said girl being an item.

sharon said...

It might be trashy if the pants are white and your black thong is
showing....lol!I think Sharon's point was that the other girl was a hoochey,so why would Jacob be with her when he had her...but then we know she broke up with him for cheating on her. Sour grapes,Sharon or did Jacob just get tired of hearing your voice(like most of us!).

I hope Adam changes his mind and keeps Sheila,only to tick Ryan off and foil his set plans.In my perfect scenario,then Sheila actually wins the HOH on her own and sends Rye Bread packing! I'd like to see her come in second as well,cause I think Adam has greased his way to the win by being pals with most.I'd love to see Ryan in that third spot,where you don't get much of anything,it's the black hole of the whole game.Also,they can give Sharon the GPs as a nice parting gift.

sue said...

Sharon, I have seen that, too. black thong with white pants. My clothes sense is as outdated as my Gregg shorthand.

Sharon is 'entertaining' them with Jacob stories. She is coming off more as a stalker than a girlfriend. She said she manages the apartment complex where Jacob lives. It didn't start as a Jacob story. Sharon hi jacked the convo from Sheila (amazingly) and others who were talking about engagements.

Then Adam brings up Jacob talking about smoking...Sharon then says she is 'done' with him. And Sheila says people who are done don't talka bout a person continually. I agree with Sheila. Amazingly.

RBennie said...

LOL Sharon - you're too funny. They really should give Sharon the GPs. Between Sheila and Ryan, I don't care which one gets second place - as long as Adam wins. I haven't liked Sheila since day one - remember the way she acted about being paired with Adam? She turned me off right from the beginning. How Ryan has made it this far is a total mystery to me. He has not done particularly well in the challenges - until very recently. I think he was just lucky to be aligned with Natalie and Adam and was able to float along on their HOH wins.

sue said...

I think the caliber of the F4 shows what type of hg we had to endure this season. These were part of the group that said they didn't want hot water or a grill, during a comp. They didn't even seem to talk game until a few weeks ago. So to make it this far doesn't mean any of them are good at playing the game, it just means they were better than some really bad players. For example, Jen telling right off the bat the big secret of her and Ryan.

Sharon has mentioned several times that Jacob and she were evicted because Jacob wouldn't tell who insulted someone. Meaning Jacob was too honorable to rat someone out. I thought Jacob was the one who said it and was a coward about not stepping up and admitting it. I must have not understood what was happening.

Donna in AL said...

So BB got the hamsters up at 8:20 this morning and it is now 2:15 their time and they have done nothing all day????

Caroline said...

Sue...I don't think you misunderstood the situation with Jacob getting evicted. I definitely think he made up the "trash talk" about Parker. Then when Parker wanted to know who had trash talked him, Jacob was stuck because all he could due was pretend to play honorable or fess up that he made up the whole thing. Now, how much of this Sharon knows...that I'm not sure of. I would imagine her and Jacob discussed this while in sequester, but who knows. Maybe if she still does have feelings for Jacob than she's trying to keep up the image of him being an admirable guy. Either way, I'm with you...Jacob definitely made the whole thing up.
