Big Brother 10: 8/24 Show Live-Blogged from the East Coast
I do have a live feeds post up over on TV Squad, but it's been a bit of same-old same-old today with the exception of Jerry getting the phone call. BTW - It was three years ago today I had the first surgery on my now new knee. It was supposed to buy me a year.
The show has started here on the East Coast. This post will be updated as it airs and everyone is welcome aboard in comments! Beware, typos will exist. :-)
Recaps, recaps - Dan and Memphis secret alliance, Renny's noms, Ollie and April's relationship took a step forward? They should know the feeds watchers know where it was since week one. Recap, offer cash, April voted out.
Into the HOH comp now. Ollie has his gloves, Dan his jacket. Memphis feels he needs the win or, if he doesn't, Dan or Keesha. Ollie and Michelle want to avenge April's exit. Ollie thinks he's all alone although he knows Michelle is in his corner. Dan tells us he's not here for April's 5,000 -- he's here for 500,000.
Keesha doesn't know how Ollie will do without April. Ollie tells us he's taking the game to the next level. Dan likens the HOH to the Carnival Ride from Hell. Ew,a groin shot of Jerry.
Jerry out at 41 minutes. He can't feel his legs. Michelle fusses that she was the innocent bystander of a balloon toss. She picks off a balloon for revenge and it opens on her -- green ick in it. Good. Keesha out 1 hour, five minutes. Memphis is disappointed in her. He wanted her to make a decent effort.
Michelle out at one hour 59 minutes. She says her sneaker got caught and ripped her from the seat on the vine. Memphis out at 3 hours, 19 minutes, so it's between Dan and Ollie.
Ollie tells Dan "I won't go home." Both are shivering. Dan tells Ollie that he is only up there for Monica and needs to see her photo. Ollie tells him he loves his "peeps" too. Ollie promises Dan if he wins, he won't put him up. Dan promises Ollie he won't go up. Swore on his girlfriend. Supposedly then Dan's gears start spinning. What else can I give you? Who do you want protected? Myself - Ollie's answer.
Dan says to us he has to give all the HOH power this week to Ollie so the blood will be on his hands. Protect someone, one nomination, and choose the veto. Ollie calls all the shots except for one nomination. Ollie drops and is smug about the deal.
Dan tells us he made one of the worst deals in BB history, but thinks it will all work out in the end and he's proud. Keesha tells Memphis that Dan made a funky-ass deal. That's a good descriptor! Ollie tells Michelle that Dan said he could save one more person and there is more to the deal. He tells her there's a third part of the deal which he isn't supposed to tell her. He tells her the third part. "I got a steal."
Dan told Memphis he made a deal that he'll tell him about later. Memphis isn't happy when Dan tells him it might get sticky this week. Renny hasn't a clue, Memphis is mad.
HOH room -- a Taken shirt from Monica, photos, she is pretty. Coaching photos, letter from home. He tells us he will turn on fake tears for his advantage. It works on Renny.
Renny asks Dan about how many women he's dated. He keeps asking definitions. He tells us he loves to pick on her.
Ollie goes to HOH room, Dan gives him a beer to bribe him. Ollie assumes that Dan will nominate Jerry. Ollie wants to nominate Memphis. He thinks that Memphis is more threatening. Dan tells us it would be a huge risk which could backfire if he puts his ally Memphis on the block.
Memphis goes to Dan in the yard. Dan tells him that he made a deal with him that he could put one nominee up. Dan wants him to trust him. Memphis is more worried about others. Dan wants to guarantee two votes for Memphis to stay ... Keesha and Renny are his target votes. He talks to Keesha first, she says she doesn't know if Renny will keep Memphis.
Renny arrives in the HOH room. Renny outright says she doesn't trust Memphis. She thinks he would cut your throat. Dan is trying to convince her that they should use him to a certain point and cut him. Dan tells us his entire game depends on a woman who wears wigs and boas. He calls her "wrecklous." They agree on final three together, Renny isn't too cool with Memphis, but seems like she will go along with it.
Memphis is still not happy, as he has a right to be.
Is Memphis wearing one of Dustin's grey v-necked shirts? Ew.
Dan talks to Monica's photo. He seems torn.
Nominations today -- Jerry hopes Dan has the same "no sour grapes" approach he does. Say what? Michelle is leery. Memphis knows of the deal and expects to be nominated but says he will go after him. Ollie is sure his deal has to be followed.
Dan mentions the deal that was struck and that he's honoring the deal. Key order: Ollie, Renny, Keesha, Michelle. So it's Memphis and Jerry on the block as we know.
Dan says he nominated Memphis because people don't know where he stands, vagabond, renegade. Dan tells Jerry that it's not about the Judas bit. He makes a football analogy, then tells them they have the power to save themselves with the veto.
Ollie tells us he controls what happens from here on out. Dan thinks the nom will hide his alliance with Memphis. Memphis says it doesn't make sense.
