Big Brother 9 - 4/20 Show NOT Live Blogged from the East Coast

jackie's tv blog, Big Brother, BB9


ARGH. The Pope leaving the city is on. They will rejoin the show already in progress and re-air it in its entirety at 11:30 No live blog here tonight and I have a cry for help out on TV Squad for my review tonight, too. I turned off word verification for now as reports from others are coming in.

It's 8:38 PM and the Pope isn't on the plane yet. CBS2 must think everyone is Catholic or something. I'm not happy here, but I thank those who have been updating the show in comments.

8:43 PM -- It just came on here. Thanks a lot CBS 2. I'm not Catholic and didn't want or need that coverage. They should have showed it online on their site.

The luxury comp movie is over and yan is telling Sheila she will be fine. She just has to win POV. She knows he (Adam) kept Natalie. Sheila knows Ryan is putting her on the block. She doesn't trust either Adam or Ryan.

Sharon thinks Adam needs to go on the block. Ryan doesn't want it to look suspicious. Sheaon still wants herself and Ryan in the final two.

Nominations -- Adam is safe. Ryan says his nominations aren't anything against the ladies, he just has Adam's support from last week, Adam nods.

Sharon has faith in herself and her partner Ryan. Adam is worried. He doesn't want Sharon to win POV. Sheila isn't only on the block, but shacked with Adam.

Zoetawny-- you need to make a BIG-She graphic with her acting in her she-rock personality when her face snarls up in her "fer sure" look

Gayle said...

Ryan says it was a funny movie and he gets to go to the premiere and watch it again.

Ryan tells Sheila she is going up on the block and not to worry. Sharon and Adam will go after each other.

joy n said...

Ryan tells Sheila he's putting her up but she'll be safe. They don't trust what Adam will do.

Like I said, no one trusts anybody.

Zoetawny said...

Sheila's so bummed out. She never wins anything.

Is anyone old enough here to remember Drive-in movies?

Keep me posted...

joy n said...

Ryan and Sharon in HOH. They don't trust Adam. Sharon wants Adam out, BIG TIME>

Gayle said...

Sharon and Ryan plotting. He's planning on getting Adam back for voting for Nat.

Missed some.

Commercial.

PlaidChick said...

I'm way behind on the show-- catching up on TiVo-- but Sheila is such a sore loser when it came to the luxary comp

joy n said...

SO glad you're back with us, Jackie.

PlaidChick said...

And AGP said in BBAD that the POV comp would be showed tonight-- ummm no

monty924 said...

Grrr. My post didn't go through. The movie looks like one I'd go see. Absolutely remember drive-ins Zoetawny. That was a family treat when I grew up. We had one about four blocks from our house.

Patty said...

I'm not certain that any sense got knocked into any of their heads. It was great watching it though!

Gayle said...

Thanks Jackie!

Laurie said...

zoetawny, I remember drive-in movies. I even remember sneaking into them by hiding in the back seat!

joy n said...

Ryan trying to figure out what's best for him.

Of course, Adam's key is there. Sheila and Adam up.

Importance of POV. Ryan wants one of them to win it. Riiiight!

joy n said...

Sheila still complaining about the the shackling to Adam.

Patty said...

They don't call Ryan"Quick" for nothing.

Shelia, grow up!

joy n said...

Poor single mom, Sheila. Didn't win the luxury cop. Got nominated. Chained to Adam for 24 hours. She's having a bad day. LOL!!!

Gayle said...

From the live feeds~

Ryan and Adam are going at it over what Sharon told him about Adam trying to make a F2 deal with her. He's considering putting Adam on the block.

Patty said...

Zoetawny-I remember the drive-in movies. We would see how many could be stuffed in the truck, so we would not have to pay so much to get in. At ours, there was a small concession area and a very small rundown bathrooms. We also had a park in the front of where all the cars parked and all the little ones could play until the movie started and that was their clue to go back to the car. Of course it was a great date place in my day. The speakers were awesome! Our drive-ins where called/named the "Starlite and the other one was "Eastpark". One on each side of town.

We had a drive-in in Mitchell SD up until a few years ago. There is one over in Minnesota, just across the South Dakota boarder where people can still enjoy the drive-in.

Thanks for the trip back down memory lane. I think I will take my grandchildren there this summer.

Anonymous said...

Zoetawny-I meant to say "trunk" not truck.

Gayle said...

Ryan and Adam finally shook hands that they would take each other to the end as long as Adam evicts Sheila.

Laurie said...

Jackie, remember it's you and me, final 2. Don't tell anyone. Dun. Finished.

Laurie aka Sassy

Nana in the NW said...

I tried to watch it on the EC feed but the audio was bad and the video kept freezing....decided to wait and watch it WC time.

I remember Drive-In's. There was one about 1 mile from my house(it's apartment building now). I actually got engaged at the Drive-In movie(June 1971). We, too, snuck in by putting people in the trunks. Oh, the good ol' days......

So, what is the schedule for the POV and comps.? Do we know anything for sure or is it a best guess scenerio right now?? Somebody mentioned the comp starting tonight....should I be taking a nap?

Obviously, no Nat. arriving at SH. I hope we see that on Tues.

Finally, something to look forward to....lots of comp. and the end of the show!

joy n said...

I'm not sure Adam should be believing Ryan.

Gayle said...

Nana, the POV meeting, eviction and 1st part of the comp are tomorrow.

Laurie said...

I know I'm slow on some of this, but can they actually make deals on who the final 2 are?

Don't the final 3 do the endurance comp and that decides the final 2?

*sigh* I do know that Sheila is a single mom.

joy n said...

I'm disappointed that we didn't see Gnat arriving at sequester, too.

Gosh, we thought we were so smart with the "kids in the trunk" thing at the drive-in. Guess everyone across the country had the same idea. Lots of fun memories.

Nana in the NW said...

patty--one of our drive-ins was called Starlite, too. The other was Auto-View. Sounds like they were all the same....small concessions, dirty bathrooms, playground in the front, and a great place to make-out!!!

Gayle said...

Laurie, they are so confident that they will be the one to choose who will go to the end. They think that they can beat Sharon so they will be able to choose each other in the end.

formerly anon said...

laurie, you're correct, but these people act so self-assured don't they? Talkin' about who they'll "take" to the finals, as though they have already been crowned.

They are also overly confident about their ability to win comps. The day Gnat was voted out, didn't Adam brag to Julie about how he could beat anyone, and then he went out to play HOH and quickly lost?

But that doesn't seem to affect them one bit when it comes to deciding who will win the next comp.

Nana in the NW said...

laurie--this is the final 3 comp.:

everyone competes in Part 1

the 2 losers compete in Pt.2

the winner of Pt. 1 and Pt.2 compete in Pt.3

The winner of Pt. 3 decides who he/she wants to be in the F2 with him.

Hope that helps....

joy n said...

We had a Starlight. Maybe they were a chain. Or just not that creative.

I don't want to knock Jackie but I think she was kind of rude about the Pope. We have been watching BB9 for months now. Surely we can miss one episode for such an outstanding visit to our city and our country! I would have given anything to have seen him in person but all I had was TV and I was glad to have it. Let's grow up a little, people!

delee said...

Drive-in here till end of last summer. No more speakers to hook on your window but audio came thru your radio. It was also called Starlite. Strange! Land has been sold, but they are unsure if the drive-in will run this summer. SAD

Anonymous said...

Well I hope that Ryan uses the POV to remove Sharon. Adam can't be trusted as shown by his 'secret' message to Nat and his attempt to make a deal with Sharon this late in the game.
We had drive in movies as well, although we did not have a Starlite. Ours were the 3C and the Holiday. This was our only opportunity to see movies when we were kids so it was a real treat. We had a station wagon and took our pillows so we could fall asleep in the back. We never made it past the first film. They did have the crummy concession stands and bathrooms too. But we took all of our food and drinks. Those were the days!!

Jackie said...

Anon- I'm not Catholic, have no interest in the Pope's visit taking over my television since last Thursday. Although I respect he's the Pope, it's not my faith and I have never had any desire to see him in the abundance of the coverage the last several days here.

It has nothing to do with "growing up."

Laurie said...

nana, thanks for the low down on the final 3 and final 2. Terry explained that to me last week, too. I don't know why it's not sinking in. I'm really quite bright!

Anon, somehow watching someone get on a plane is useless television in my humble opinion. But then I think most location shots are useless. Just give me the news and move on.

Sassy (not very grown up)

delee said...

Just great another anon afraid to sign their name. Yes, you are entitled to your opinion, but so is Jackie! Trust me I am sick of hearing about the Pope, just as I am about Obama and Hillary. As I said everyone is entitled to their opinion, no need to be snippy!

SharonS said...

Jackie, I agree with you about the Pope on tv...he was simply leaving the country. Not everyone is Catholic, and I would wager that not even half of the population in the viewing area is Catholic. The Pope was on lots of other channels all week. Why interrupt regularly scheduled programming for something that is really not even a news event at this point? The news was all of his appearances throughout the week.

Anonymous said...

Jackie,

I share your sentiment regarding the Pope. I too, am not Catholic, and while I can be respectful, there is a limit. I live in the DC area, and the security rivaled any I've seen. In addition to the television coverage, my normal 45 min to 1.5 hour/12 mile commute expanded to FIVE hours. At the current gas prices, I am sure you can appreciate my frustration. I also managed to be near Andrews AFB during his arrival. I've a number of Catholic friends, deeply devout Catholic friends, who questioned the level and type of coverage. It seems as if we could have hit some sort of happy medium, or had an avenue for alternate coverage. Just my two cents, and I am definitely a grown up.

Tom`S said...

I'm not Catholic, although we didn't get interrupted in Texas, I'm rather surprised CBS would broadcast the Pope's departure, was this shown only in NY area?

Adam has agreed to evict Sheila, once again Ryan stated he doesn't want to use POV.

RyzandShyn said...

I don't blame CBS for showing the Pope...afterall, he's been the man about town for the last couple of days. I was just surprised that it was only in this area.
I remember drive-ins fondly. In the summer, my father used to back the station wagon in so that the tail was on that little hill. He'd open the tailgate and my sisters and I would lay in the back on blankets, in our pajamas to watch the movie.
I have no idea how my parents saw it, if they watched at all...for all I know they were making out up front!

Jackie said...

I believe it was only shown here in the NYC area as JoyN is upstate and got the show. I also have the double whammy that no one could take my review of the show tonight at TVS. So I'll have to write that up way after the fact, lose sleep, and face aggravation in getting that up this week. Since I'm contracted to write it and no one will sub for me, I have to do it. So, it's not just a matter of missing an episode as I watch TV.

nancy in pa said...

sorry to hear some of you were blocked due to the pope getting on a plane. personally i am so sick of political news and campaigning...the primary is on tue. UGH!! just get it over with!

was sharon getting on anyone else's nerves tonight with that ya-hoo screaming she was doing all night? oh my goodness....it was shooting up my last nerve!

so, basically adam has to choose who is gonna go home....hhhmmm....how did sharon react to ryan not taking her off the block and putting adam up? sheila plays that boo-hoo i love you card, then turns around and is mean and nasty. that chick is psycho. oh my....bb9 will indeed go down as the worst bb in history in my book. (news is on now....i am watching the pope leave NY right now.)

RyzandShyn said...

That sucks, Jackie. What a way to have to start the week! I hope it gets better from this point on.

meb said...

I truly hope Ryan is just stringing Adam along and he does take Sharon off the block and puts him up so Sharon can vote Adam off. After this new "treason" with Sharon and F-2, Ryan would be totally stupid to leave the noms as they are. Get Adam out of there. He's playing the game, but if Ryan even wants to be in the final 2 he better wise up.

What could he be afraid of...that the 2 girls would end up winning something? No way...

meb said...

nancy in pa... Each of Sharon's screams went right thru me... I hate that with the yells.

Now did I miss something... they haven't had the POV meeting yet right... Ryan can still take Sharon off if he so chooses... Adam only has the vote if Ryan doesn't change who's on the block, right???

~~Silk said...

There's an active drive-in in Hyde Park, NY, across the road from the Roosevelt mansion.

joy n said...

I am also not Catholic and was not interested in seeing the Pope leave. I'm sure that many cablenews programs were showing his departure. Luckily, they didn't interrupt our regular viewing here. I understand Jackie's frustration as she has a job to do pertaining to BB9 and something like this can wreak havoc with her already busy schedule.

Hiding behind anon to make your hit and run crack about growing up is rude.

As far as "growing up" is concerned, I wish our whole human race would "grow up" and stop believing in childish fairy tales and putting certain people on pedastals because they supposedly represent their invisible daddy in the sky.

But that's just me.

PlaidChick said...

I'm not Catholic-- a diluted Catholic as us Episcopalians call each other..

I didn't see much coverage at all about the Pope's visit in the D/FW viewing area. I did find it interesting that there was a dinner in the Pope's honor the day he was in DC, yet he was not in attendance because of a prior prayer committment.

Sydney said...

Many Thanks to Joy N and Gayle for live blogging for us til Jackie got her programming back!

RyzandShyn said...

Hey, formerly Anon....I did that google map thing you suggested...that was very cool!
You guys should try it:
1. Go to http://maps.google.com

2. Put this in the search box: 34.14445, -118.38905

3. Hit satellite view and zoom in for the close up!

what is ryan going to do when he finds out jen DID tell people he's racist? didn't he say he'd dump her if he learned it was true?

Zoetawny said...

It doesn't look like I missed anything dynamic. But then, when have the house guests ever been dynamic this season? Guess I'll have to wait until it airs here to catch all the nuances. How disappointing that they didn't show any SH clips. That was the only part I was really interested in.

The secret relationship in the house is Alex and Sheila. J/K

To whomever it may concern, I am Catholic, (not a practicing Catholic) and I took no offense. I'm sure Jackie didn't mean that BB was more important than the Pope.

PlaidChick said...
Zoetawny-- you need to make a BIG-She graphic with her acting in her she-rock personality when her face snarls up in her "fer sure" look

Sheila's facial expressions are not very attractive, are they? If you have any good images of her "fer sure" look, I'd be happy to make something. When Sheila's not getting her way she can be a Shebeotch. The only week She seemed to be even half way pleasant is when she was HOH.

We have no drive-in movies here in CA that I'm aware of. How ironic since we have great weather for them year round. It was a great place to practice kissing. WHOOHOO!

joy n said...
Poor single mom, Sheila. Didn't win the luxury cop. Got nominated. Chained to Adam for 24 hours. She's having a bad day. LOL!!!

4/20/2008 8:59 PM

LMBO! She sure does know how to play the pity card. It's sickening. I read on Joker's how she kept saying to Adam that she's a fool because she had his back and now she doesn't know if he has her back. She kept repeating "I'm a fool" trying to lay a guilt trip on Adam. We all know how easy that is to do since Baller has a heart.

We'll find out soon if it's Sharon or Sheila who stays to compete.

Ciao!

formerly anon said...

RyzandShyn, glad you did it, it was cool huh?

Can you believe I found that just by looking all around?? I knew they had to be near an airport since we always hear the planes going overhead, so I started at the local airports and just scanned around until I found the backyard.

TerryinCA said...

Patty-- seeing Mitchel,SD on the blog just made me smile.

Anon...The news coverage for MANY events, not just the pope is useless. I dont care for long drawn out car chase scenes we see here in California....watching someone get on a plane, really not uselful...when I was in DC I purposely went at Andrews AFB to watch The Prez get off aplane and he waved to us and that was special, but each time he gets on and off I dont want to see it on my TV screen.

Now, on to DriveIns..ours was the Sundown and the Norwalk. when I was pregnant with my first child I craved the pizze they served at the Sundown and the last night before he was born I was there eating my fill. Im sure it was horrible pizza, but at the time it was great.
I loved seeing kids play on the playgroudn in their jammies, cause they fell asleep during the movies. And as a teen couple we parked way behind the "snack shack" for private time.

oh yes, BB....I....am at a loss for words.

-----------------------
You actually want me to go hunt down her "fer sure" looks???! ACK!!

I think the only really good ones I have seen are people snapping shots of her when she's yelling.

I'll take a look around. I can't listen them go over and over and over about what Ryan may or may not do. Adam did goof big time going to Sharon and giving her a F2 offer. Ryan is going to keep him, Butthead will convince Beavis, he always does.

formerly anon said...

Zoe, it's true that there don't seem to be any drive-ins in CA anymore, but I know of several that used to be here. I grew up going to the one in Culver City ("Welcome to the Centinela Thee-a-ter Drive-In"). There was one in Simi Valley, and one in the San Fernando Valley (the Winnetka Drive in) until not too long ago, maybe a decade.

Laurie said...

Terry, just think, we were probably at the Norwalk Drive In at the same time back in the day! Did you ever go to the La Mirada?

Ryan keeps saying he doesn't have a deal with Sharon and is blasting Adam for suggesting one with her. Hello? Haven't Ryan and Sharon had a deal for weeks now? Ryan is a liar and a user. I feel bad for Adam when he sees all this because he's really been believing in all this "bro" stuff.

Gayle said...

Trivia is on the live feeds - maybe it's the POV ceremony.

monty924 said...

Anon, I AM catholic and I don't go onto blogs about BB to scream it out. I also don't tell others that they should want to watch the Pope because I do.

I watched CNN most of the day yesterday, watching the mass with my mom and missed all my fun on here. Tonight was about BB for all the BB fans on this blog, and not about the Pope getting on a plane from New York. If you don't like it, why even come here to comment.

Just a lame contribution with nothing to add to the discussion hiding behind anon.

formerly anon said...

I have a proposal for a new meta-show for CBS.

During the regular BB season, there's another group of people locked in another house, and they have to watch the BB live feeds and all the shows, and guess what the players are going to do.

RyzandShyn said...

Formerly Anon...
Good detective work! I like that satellite image feature. One weekend morning, I sat here with my coffee and found the house I grew up in. I took a walk around to all the places I remembered there. Silly, but it was fun.

formerly anon said...

RyzandShyn, I don't think it's silly at all, I do that all the time. I travel all over the world that way. Weird yes, silly no.

I love aerial views, love love love them.

I'm a "big picture" sort of person I guess, lol.

formerly anon said...

Apparently BB just told them about the guinea pigs being sisters!

Guess they didn't want this next vote to be based on that, good for them.

Tom`S said...

Full moon along with POV in progress..

Gayle said...

I was wrong about the POV meeting. BB brought in Chinese food for dinner. Everyone is happily eating.

formerly anon said...

I think they're eating dinner, they got take-out Chinese food. I think the POV is going to be tomorrow, with an immediate eviction.

Sydney said...

yo yo yo dawgs, Jackie has put up another post...

Sydney said...

Hi Tom 's... I think we are looking at the same moon. I can see it from where I'm sitting. A few minutes ago it was half coered by a whisp of a cloud and looked reddsih... like a Halloween moon.

I guess it's only affecting their wontons at the moment... but who knows what it will do to their inner tides, lol.

RyzandShyn said...

Question...
Do the HGs realize that they'll be finishing up this week?

Patty said...

Anon9:32-Please know that Jackie is not a rude person. I hope that you can come back and post that you are sorry for suggesting that she was.

Jackie is someone who does not have to go to the lenghts she does, however she does out of the goodness of her heart. In other words, she goes above and beyond what most will, to bring us the lastest and most accurate reporting. She does have a job to report to on a daily basis.

I am not certain if you are a "newbie" to her site? I think you will find that Jackie's place is the best.

Yes, many would view the Pope as someone of interest. But can you say that watching his departure is highly important? I think the USA has hosted the Pope well these past days and heard his messages.

I guess I will respect your views and you respect others. I feel you were able to post your views on the coverage of the Pope, however it was not neccessary to state that Jackie was being rude. That comment should have been omitted.

Thank You.

Anonymous said...

I think "grow up" was appropriate. Children think the world should revolve around them. Just because Jackie does not like the coverage of the Pope does not mean it should not be on TV. Also, what does it matter if someone posts anon or not. What's the difference addressing someone named anon or Karen or Billy Bob.

joy n said...

The crack about "growing up" was entirely inappropriate. Jackie wasn't acting childish. She simply bemoaned the fact that this "change" in programming was going to mess up her schedule.

If it had been the Queen of England or the Dalai Lama, it would have been no different a situation. When you've had week-long coverage of a person's visit, how important is it when they're just leaving to go home? It could have been watched on any of the all news stations or shown on the late local news. He just got on a plane, for heaven's sake!

As for making your baseless claim under the anon title rather than leaving your name, that only shows your propensity for a " hit and run" mentality. Throw a catty accusation at Jackie for all to see but keep yourself "safe" from direct rebuttal.

If you want to take something personally, then personify your rebuttal.

Anonymous said...

The solution is to merge religions.

Take the Pope out of church, and put him in the Big Brother house, and Jackie will be glad to watch 24/7.

joy n said...

Now who needs to grow up? And still being oh so catty while still remaining anon. Figures.

@@ Maybe the one or two who whine about having the Pope's historic visit on TV instead of the riveting Big Brother show.

You just don't get it and NEVER will because you obviously don't want to. Why don't you grow up and try having an adult conversation sometime? You might like it.

I wonder why joy n does not use her full last name. She must have something to hide. I'd feel much better if I could call you by your full given name. You should also include your address and ss# with each post.

All of us should just refrain from responding to the jerk Anon's comments. Even if they don't go away it will piss them off more that we're ignoring them than by anything we could say in response to their inane, rude opinions. We don't need trolls here, there's plenty of intelligent people to converse with instead.

Indeed, we treasure Ms. n's bastion for the intelligencia, for mature adult discourse, frank openness, tolerance, and joy.

Suppose the Pope was boarding the plane at the same moment Sharon was exiting the Big Brother house. What a dilemma for the network brass!
