Big Brother 9 4/22 Show Live Blogged from the East Coast
The show has started here on the East Coast. I'll be updating this entry as it airs. Please forgive typos and feel free to join in on the comments!
Julie Chen, al;beit taped. She has a little coral colored sweater set on, her hair is fluffy. We've gone through the initial recap, but first it's the power of veto and Sheila and Adam are locked together. B&W recap of the nominations once again.
Go to color and Sheila is overwhelmed, calls Ryan's speech lame. Sharon thinks her alliance with Ryan will save her. Adam is still a bit worried. Sheila cries, it's frickin painful. Sharon consoles her. Sharon tells us her goal is to be final three with Ryan and Sheila. Sheila tells Sharon the guys control the game and it's us against them. She doesn't trust them. Sharon assures her she will make sure they're the final three -- she doesn't trust Adam.
Ryan thinks that either Adam or Sharon will take him to the final two. Adam says he'll do or say whatever it takes to get him to the final two (in a diary room segment).
Sharon and Ryan talk, Ryan wants her safe. She tells him she wants Adam out. Sheila questions Adam if she can trust him. Adam sidesteps a bit about committing to saving her with the POV. Adam tells her that he's still at risk. Sheila tells him his decisions have sometimes pissed her off. He's going to have to get his hands dirty.
It's time for Sheila and Adam to get chained together. She says he knows shackles too well and she'll never forgive Big Brother. Ryan thinks they're the most dysfunctional marriage you could ever imagine and says it's priceless.
Final POV comp. It's night. Adam and Sheila are shackled. Sheila wakes up and notices Sharon is missing -- they're scheming -- her and Ryan. Shraon is sure that Adam has to go. She wants final two with Ryan. Sheila, meanwhile, tells Adam she and he are the most deserving of final two. Sharon tells Ryan it's do or die.
Sheila and Adam are about to get the shackles off and rejoice.
Time for POV -- four quandrants cordoned off, hourses with jockeys without head. They have to put faces of jusry members and two clues in the order of eviction. One horse at a time. More clues than they need, some have no match. First one to get all five horses in order wins.
"Personally I want to win this veto because I want to be a power whore," says Ryan. All the others want to win for themselves. Sharon doesn't want Adam to win. Ryan is leading. Ryan wins.
"I don't know where that leaves Sheila," says Sheila over Ryan's win. Sharon wants Ryan to take her off the block. Ryan says he controls everybody's fate at this point.
Back to taped Julie ... she tells us that if the noms remain the same, it will be Adam casting the sole vote for eviction. Duh, I say. Ry and Adam talk. Adam tells him that he'll do whatever. Ryan brags he could make one move and boot him. Adams promises. Ryan powertrips.
Adam calls Sharon dude as he tells her he doesn't know what to do. He promises her he'd keep her if she takes him to the final two. It dawns on Adam that she might have something going with Ryan.
Sharon runs to Ryan, of course. Sharon tells him Adam is going to take Sheila. She doesn't trust him. He has no loyalty to anybody. Now Ryan doesn't trust Adam. Sheila tells Adam that she has his back and if she wins, they're final two. She says if Sharon stays, she'll go to final two with Ryan. She cries and repeats she's had his back.
Ryan accuses Adam of trying to cut deals. He pretty much denies it. Ryan denies that he and Sharon have anything going on. Ryan tells him that he might be able to trust Sharon more than Adam. Adam vehemently denies everything and says he will vote Sheila out.
Julie talks to them. She wonders if holding all the power could come back to haunt him. He's not worried. Sharon is the first HG in BB history to be nominated for eviction five times in a row. She thinks by the grace of God she's still here. Sheila, re: Shackled: Singles day best day in the house, thought of shackles made her want to run out the door. Adam says he accepts her the way she is.
Veto meeting and eviction next.
Veto meeting in front of Julie (on the screen for them). Ryan says he has no reason to change his nominations and doesn't use the POV. It's down to Sheila and Sharon. Sharon says loves to stay, amazing time, same speech as each week. Sheila says she wants to stay, but will take something from Sharon ... if God's will, she will says goodbye. She cries and hugs Sharon.
Adam says not an easy decision, evicting Sharon, his voice cracks. Sheila cries more than Sharon. Adam cries. Sharon leaves well. Ryan's first words get bleeped, but he isn't upset. Sheila just keeps crying. She thought she was going. They're changing for HOH comp.
Talk with Julie -- Sharon says she's shocked, but not really. It's just a game. She thinks Ryan had more faith in Adam. She's not mad. She thinks Adam and Sheila will stick together at the end. Six nominations, not five.
Goodbye messages -- Adam loves her, likes, her, Sheila's his partner. Ryan doesn't understand why, breath of fresh air, did not plan this, not his doing. Sheila teary, really good person, will be a good wife and mother.
Future for her and Jacob? They have a lot going on, would like to try. You take the good and bad, put them all together.
Final HOH Part 1: Julie explains because it's the final one, Ryan HOH can compte. Sound cut out as she explained the rules here. The yard has a pond in it and what looks like boogie boards on a level water slide. They are Up a Creek. They strap themselves in, must have rope in hand at all times, let go, out. It's like a ski rope. The river is starting to rise and the platform is tilting.
Sheila is getting cold but smiling. Adam and Ryan are doing well. Ryan says it's better than sweating in a box. Julie says the voyage is about to get choppy and they have a rough night ahead of them. (This is what took BB two days to build in the backyard.)
Adam calls Julie BABE. She tells them they never know what Mother Nature has in store. It starts raining and they don't give us the end.
