Big Brother 10: 7/22 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 possible errors. Also, all folks are welcome in the comments area. A full review/recap of the show will be posted later tonight on TV Squad.
Recaps -- Brian's friends are outcasts, Jessie wants to put Renny on the block, etc. Nominations, blah-blah ... who will win the power of veto and an explosion rocks the house as Libra fusses about the old people on her team losing the food comp. More recaps. Good, now they're in color again.
Steven feels hurt by the nomination. Libra wants Steven gone. Jessie is bragging. He doesn't know he has a target on his back from the show fans! Jessie is complimenting Dan more. Dan thinks he has his foot in the door with Jessie. Jessie thinks that Steven is a more threatening player. Dan promises him safety if he wins HOH. Jessie trusts Dan more than anyone else because he indeed stood up for Brian as he had promised.
Angie goes in to talk to Steven. He tells her not to be sad. His feelings seem to be really hurt because he's a target and knows it. He tells her that Dan and her will probably be targeted next.
Michelle is giving Jessie a pedicure and flirting. @@ She seems to be looking for a showmance and even though he has a girlfriend at home, he seems open to the idea.
Memphis and Jessie meet up in the storage room talking about taking Michelle and Angie into their alliance. Memphis and Jessie apporach Angie with Memphis doing the talking. She's agreeable to the deal -- it's a good move for her because she's on the outside right now.
Steven and Renny are talking Katrina. Renny says the important thing is the people who surround you in life. Steven thinks he has a bond with Renny now due to the hurricane -- they both went through it. Keesha wants Steven to stay. She wants to win POV and save Steven.
Pick players for Veto comp -- Jessie picks Michelle, Dan picks HG choice and goes with Libra, Steven actually pulls Keesha out of the bag. Jerry is the host.
Keesha tells April, Michelle, and Libra that she would like Stevn to stay. Now they think she's a floater. They all want Steven to go. Michelle runs to Memphis and Jessie with the news. She doesn't trust Keesha and doesn't want them to trust her either.
Argh, Jerry is announcing the veto comp. They have little steering wheels on podiums with fake drivers licenses for heach participant. Dan wants to throw the comp. License to Drive ... vanity plates scrambe to spell out BB phrases. If they're wrong, eliminated. Most points at end of nine rounds or last standing wins.
The first round they have several plates to unscramble to spell eviction. Dan buzzed in and guessed wrong, he's out. Now Jessie is out. Keesha got it right, 10 points.
Next phrase is head of household. (They have to say the states of the vanity plates.) Steven blew it. Michelle just got ten points. New puzzle they're playing for a slop pass. Libra tells us how much she hates slop. If they win the slop pass, they're out of the comp for the veto. Steven is giving Keesha sad puppy eyes. They're looking for alliance. Libra sees it and can't take it -- TEAM. Michelle isn't taking it either. They're worried about Keesha.
No one answered and got the slop pass.
New puzzle worth 15 points -- Big Brother slop is the answer. Libra screws up and is out. It's down to Michelle and Keesha. Each have ten points. Uh-oh - Keesha forgot the last state in her answer and Michelle wins POV!
Memphis and Jessie are happy as Michelle is in their camp. Dan thinks Steven will fight hard and make matters worse for himself. Dan thinks he probably has nothing to worry about.
Jessie tries to convince others that Keesha wanted POV to save Steven. Libra mentions how much she did for the team not taking the slop pass. Steven warns Keesha the others will stab her in the back and she needs to watch what she says in front of them. So she talks to Renny. Renny and Keesha agree Libra has to go.
Renny tells us she likes arguments in the house because it takes the attention away from her. Keesha announces to everyone that she would not have used the veto had she won it. Cat fight -- MEOW. Keesha is sick of having to prove herself. This is the fight, not the old people slop food comp thing.
Keesha goes to Memphis and Jessie about Libra. She tells them that Libra is stirring up lies. The boys agree. The guys are considering backdooring Libra. Now Keesha is anti-Libra-ing to Jerry and Jessie. Aha, they find out about Libra fussing about the old folks on the food comp team. Jerry is ticked.
He confronts Libra. She gets screaming and defensive. Of course, Jerry can't really scream if he wants. Renny is standing in another room quietly drinking coffee. A brouhaha! Yay. Libra is freaking, says she only wanted the teams evened up. She went to Jerry demanding to know who told him she said it. He tells her Renny and Renny shluffs it off. Now Renny denies saying it to Jerry. CAT FIGHT -- Renny and Libra. Heh.
Steven approaches Jessie to put Libra up because she starts so much drama in the house. Jessie told him it's Michelle's decision. They meet with Michelle. Michelle says that all the ones saying they want Libra out don't have the POV and must stick their necks out. Steven even suggests she take Dan off the block, leave him on and Jessie puts Libra in Dan's place. Michelle looks tormented.
It's time for Michelle to decide whether she'll use it or not. She finds it harder than she thought. Steven is still hoping she will use it and Libra would go on the block. Dan hasn't a clue. Time for the ceremony ...
Steven says he was put on the block for his actions with brian, tainted him with a stigma which will haunt him until the day he leaves, you make the decision best for the house. Dan says he made his bed, he can sleep in it, made mistakes, Portuguese Princess from Providence would love if you use it to save me, no hard feelings. Michelle does not use the POV because she feels it would be foolish of her to use it and she hopes they understand.
Dan is sure Steven is going home. Steven vows to fight. He wants to stay even if he has to push their faces in the toilet. Keesha wants to campaign for Steven. Michelle thinks she would have only made enemies if she used the POV.
