Big Brother 10: 8/05 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.
Can you say recap? I knew you could. The HOH is on again, Memphis and Keesha have a friendship. Cat fights ahead. Now we have the nominations again. It should go to color momentarily. Day 25 color. Memphis isn't surprised, but doesn't like that he's nominated with Jessie as Jessie is his ally. Jessie is the pawn, but Michelle thinks the pawn usually goes home. April doesn't care that some of her alliance wants Jessie out. She promised to keep him safe.
Jessie is a bit worried as he talks to April and Ollie.
Dan's America's Player -- he has to hug Jessie for ten seconds. He's cracking up over it. He plans on telling Jessie a sob story about his girlfriend Monica. He says Jessie's actually a softy. He cries and wonders if she'll still be there for him. Jessie is actually being very nice. The hug clocked at 17 seconds. Task completed.
Time to pick players for PoV -- April gets Michelle. Jessie is happy about that. Jessie got Libra. Memphis got Jerry. Renny is the host. April is a bit worried about Jerry and Libra. HOH room meeting -- all aboard. April is worried that Memphis will get PoV. If Jerry gets a pick your nose comp, he'd do well -- April re: Jerry. Libra is getting upset because people seem to be doubting her. She's upset and leaves. She says it hurts.
April said to Ollie that Libra has an excuse for every comp she's lost. Now Keesha is upset about people telling her who she can talk to or not in the house. Jessie runs to April and Ollie about Keesha saying people are talking about her. Jessie is so proud of his stirring the pot. "It'll get ugly. Out comes the temper now," says April.
Ollie gives April some encouragement as she heads back out of HOH. Libra is saying her feelings are hurt. April claims she didn't yell at her or raise her voice. Libra said she didn't say anyone yelled at her, she just didn't deserve to be spoken to that way. Keesha is mad when April mentioned Steven. Keesha asks Michelle if she said anything to April about Mempphis.
Keesha is steaming in the kitchen. It's her birthday. Keesha can't stand April's [bleepin] guts. She confronts April. Cat fight. MEOW! April does look ganged up upon. MEOW! Libra realizes that someone (Jessie) listened through the wall and reported. April admits it was Jessie who told her. Now they're mad at Jessie.
Jerry arrives. Memphis is making fun of it and Jerry tells the girls that. Now Renny is snapping at Jerry. She doesn't like the Colonel's finger in her face. She tells Memphis that Jerry ratted him out for making fun of the cat fight.
Birthday cake. Tears, crying for the birthday girl. They try to make Keesha feel good about it. Libra is still with April. Uh-oh. Jessie realizes that they know he can hear them through the wall.
Now Libra is confronting Jessie. Conversation endeed -- you don't run me, you don't own me -- Libra to Jessie. Jessie can't get a word in. His cheeks turn red when he gets flustered. As they scream at each other, the focus to the cake and Keesha's teary face is priceless. April is just sitting there. Some birthday. They all gather in the kitchen. It's the most pathetic singing of Happy Borthday I've ever heard. They all look like they want to kill.
Libra apologizes. Jessie apologizes for "being honest." Michelle doesn't think they know what the fight is about. Keesha throws Jessie under the bus for reporting to them. The fight starts all over again. Blurred gestures galore. Arrogant and a troublemaker. He claims he was "woke up." Libra just claps. "Hey, Memphis ... every day is a new day!" Libra says. Jessie ain't sitting too pretty with the house on the whole.
PoV comp time -- They have sports jerseys and hockey sticks. Jessie is sure he'll win. The Slapshot Comp is about to begin. Shoot for center section of net. Person eliminated at the end of each round wins a prize, one is a veto. The eliminated person can keep the prize or exchange it. Player triumphant after five rounds has choice of any of the prizes including veto.
Michelle is three away from Veto. Libra two away. April 2 away. Jessie four away. Jerry three away. (Veto is in center.) Memphis didn't even hit the net. He's eliminated. He wins the PoV ... but someone will take it.
Round two -- Libra five, April one, Jessie four, Jerry three, Michelle misses the net. She gets a Hawiian holiday. She's thrilled. She keeps the vacation for herself thinking Jessie could get PoV.
April one way, Jerry three away, Jessie eight away. Libra seven away. Jessie is eliminated. He gets a Slop Surprise. He takes the veto from Memphis.
Round four -- Jerry and Libra both two away, April with seven away out. She gets $10,000 in BB gold bars -- she can transfer money to others or keep it. It's real money upon eviction. She decides to keep it. Final round -- Libra perfect score. Jerry three away. He's out. He gets a letter from home. They're going to split the ten grand three ways and takes the PoV from Jessie. Jessie gets the letter from home and looks unhappy. Libra is the slapshot champion and wins the red unitard -- used. She trades it and takes Michelle's Hawaii trip and Michelle gets the unitard. Michelle glares and cries and swears in the DR. Onto Memphis slop surprise -- he gets a one week slop pass redeemable at any time, but must choose one person to eat slop for the week. He chose Jerry for the slop. Jerry isn't surprised.
Michelle goes to Jessie ... "I'm done, I'm done." She's really uspet. "What kind of mother doesn't take the letter from home." "Her kids should be taken away, Whore, slut skank" She's been nothing but made a fool out of ... DR gets her back from now on. Jessie even tells her he'll buy her a trip to Hawaii. He is being sweet to her.
April is a bit concerned even though the deal was that Jerry won't use the POV. Time for the meeting -- Jessie: I know why I'm here and respect what you do (roughly). Memphis -- I don't expect you to take me off. We've had problems from day one. Whatever you do best for your game. Jerry doesn't use the POV. Man, Michelle looks sullen.
Memphis isn't surprised that Jerry didn't use it -- he has time to secure votes. Jessie is sure he won't be voted out. April wants Memphis out even though her alliance wants Jessie out. After all, she's there to win the money, not her alliance win it.
Next AP assignment -- Dan vote to evict.
