Big Brother 10 Live Feeds Into Sunday Dawn

jackie's tv blog, Big Brother, BB!0

Graphic arteest Zoetawny has Dan making his own platinum Power of Veto.

Yes, I weathered the storm fine here. Across the street and down a few buildings a tree fell down on someone's parked car. She didn't fare all that well, but at least the tree didn't hit an occupied car driving by. This morning is sunny and a bit leaf and twig littered. And I had no need for the oil lamp. My elevator is still working, too! Even a flicker of the power shuts that down until someone with a key to the Magic Kingdom in the basement (across from the laundry room) can come to flick a switch. We had a lot of rain. But it's been pretty dry here, so the ground absorbed it well. The wind was so-so. I have an old-fashioned chrome exhaust fan in my kitchen. When the winds are really bad, the flap to the fan vent slams open and shut. That didn't happen a lot last night here.

But the houseguests continued to be boring last night, so I decided to gather stuff for an update. Here's the skinny:
  • Dan and Memphis continued to list the pros and cons of taking either Jerry or Keesha into the final three. I think they're really underestimating Jerry's sometimes strength in comps and the possibility he might get odd votes from the jury just based on his age and making it through to the end (if he gets that far). Of course, I'd prefer they stay loyal to Keesha, but they aren't asking me. She's been freezing on comps lately -- I don't think she'd be much more of a threat than Jerry.
  • Without Renny, Jerry is the main cook. Ew. A man who doesn't wash his hands after using the bathroom. Ew.
  • Keesha is very nervous. She asked Dan if he would tell her if Memphis wasn't going to keep her.
  • Dan later mocked Keesha's question to Memphis. I should make note that Memphis said earlier that if he decides to vote her out, he wants to tell her ahead of time.
  • Dan found out that he would be taken by a private helicopter for his day at the beach.
  • The BB voice randomly announced that 7-inch records were played at 45 revolutions per minute. Jackie announces that she still has her collection of 45 RPM records (and technology to play them).
  • Dan fed Ted the spider more moths.
  • They talked about how bored they are -- and so am I with them.
  • Keesha told Dan and Memphis that Jerry told her he's ready to go home. (He did say it.)
  • Dan talked about the HOH room always having condoms in it. They then wondered about April and Ollie. (Not that they ever used the condoms!)
  • Memphis wants to take Jerry's $4,000 to keep him this week.
  • Keesha and Dan felt sorry for Jerry as he's all alone so much and really tries to help, as in his cooking dinner, etc.
  • Memphis thinks Jerry brags too much. He's 75, you know. Oh, and he has three refrigerators at home.
  • When Keesha told Dan and Memphis they leave her out of things a lot, they said it was because she hangs out with Jerry too much.
  • Memphis said that April is the Crypt Keeper in the Jury House.
  • Keesha outright asked Memphis if he was going to vote her out and he told her no.
  • All are still asleep as I post this and Dan hasn't been whisked away yet.

I miss Renny, I really hope they keep Keesha. I was wondering what if Keesha won the POV and took Memphis off there would be no one to replace him how would have that worked?

TerryinCA said...

nacy---interesting question..has that happened jackie?
Glad your storm is past...which brings me to question about Roofus..no sightings, no talk about him, did I miss something?
I want jerry and his poor hygiene to leave....I dont like his playing the "Im 75" card all the time...I just think that the three "youngsters" should duke it out...more interesting

Jackie said...

Keesha wouldn't be able to remove Memphis from the block had she won POV. The noms would remain the same and she'd vote Jerry out in lieu of removing Memphis. If that was her plan, that is.

Jackie said...

Terry - I only go by the train station once a week on blood draw days. I haven't seen Roofus although I look each time. They've tarred the main "cat travel" roof and it's been very hot and sunny each time I've gone to the station. I also noticed no birds gathering along the top of the larger building. So I'm thinking I'm just going by at a bad time.

Next month when I most likely will return to work I'll be there in the early morning hours.

Anonymous said...

Do you think that its possible that Dan's trip will be to the jury house?

Jackie said...

Anon - I don't think so. However, I think a jury member might be on the beach with him. Might be, not certain.

Mianna said...

Still a new one here....

But about Dan's trip: I just got the thought, with BB's reference to the revolutions of 45 records....

and that he's only taking a helicopter, short ride...

I bet he's going to the VMA's tonight....the Video Music Awards.

Now how that would effect the game as a twist I don't know...maybe while Dan's gone the remaining houseguests will be allowed some info or something. Not sure.

Just brainstorming.

Jackie said...

Mianna -- That's a possibility, too. We'll have to watch his return time. If he gets home early, that's a no. He's been telling them it's "a day at the beach" and he doesn't know if it will include a night out or not. But he's been also told he can't say much. We'll have to see what he leaks before they cut the feeds when he returns.

What is Dan thinking? When he won HOH he suggested a slumber party with Keesha sleeping between him and Memphis. He finally hugged her for no real reason except he wanted to. Last night he did all in his power to get her drunk and most insistant she not share her wine with anyone. He offered to share his bed with all three again and when Memphis went to shower asked Keesha to stay and grilled her about her relationship with JJ.
She told him in many ways she was not interested.

So is he trying to win her vote with the jury as memphis will be the sole vote to send her to jury or is a very naive imature young man who has neverd moved out of his moms house who finds himself infatuated with someone more worldly and knows time is short to broaden his life experiences as the game is almost over?

Anonymous said...

Maybe the power is going to Dan's head. Too much of a good thing...

Anonymous said...

anon 11:41, i dont think i put enough effort into figuring out the hg's gameplan as much as you.

Nana in the NW said...

Hello, my name is Nana. I am a friend of Jackie's. I sometimes dream of bananas and platinum vetoes....I get it Laurie and I'm in the chair beside you!...LOL

This trip of Dan's is quite the mystery. All we seem to know is Dan SAYS they told him he's going to a beach, by helicopter and to only bring his swimsuit. We really don't know if he going alone or with someone.

CBS is really getting cheap this season. In the past HG have went to Vegas, movie premieres, and game shows. Personally, going to a beach(especially if he's alone) doesn't seem like that much fun!

As for Dan's behavior last night.....they all were drinking and being a little flirtaous. Keesha was egging them on for compliments and comparing her to the other girls, it was Memphis who suggested they have a "Keesha sandwich"in the sleeping arrangements, and I think Dan is naive and was "playing" with Keesha like he did with Renny.

D/M have been flirting with Keesha the last few days, however, some of that is trying to brighten her spirits...she has been sad since Renny left. The boys seem very committed to their gf and wouldn't do anything to jepordize their relationships.

D/M have said they will make a decision about evicting K closer to Thurs. and tell her right before eviction if they decide to vote her out.
Since they don't know eviction is Tues. maybe they won't have time to decide and Memphis will vote to keep her.

I would not count Jerry out in any comp. UNLESS it's balancing/endurance.

jb said...

Memphis would really bother with $4,000?? Are they playing for $500,000 or not? How foolish.

I could never understand the motive behind going after small amounts of money in the game. I'd stay focused on just one thing. The BIG prize.

Anonymous said...

Keesha has all day whie Dan is gone to work on Memphis. After the bonding last night I think Memphis will have trouble following through evicting Keesha

Sydney said...

Not really liking the side of Dan we've been seeing more of lately.... this recent example, him going back to Memphis and MOCKING Keesha's question if he'd tell her if Memphis was planning to vote her off.

Nancy from Long island -- are you Nancy from PA/NJ or a new Nancy? lol

Laurie said...

Hey, Nana. Glad to see you in the chair next to me. Love those 'nanas!

Jackie, you have your 45s and can play them. I am green with envy. I have most of my "LPs" that we used to play on the "HiFi" but my 45s in their cute boxy carrying case went out the door long ago. I love that you have yours!

Anon 1:01, I hope you are right and Memphis won't vote Keesha out. They can win over her just as easily as over Jerry, IMHO, and the good will is priceless. I would just hate to see those 3 turn on each other that way this late in the game. Get Jerry out and they can enjoy a week together.

Sydney said...

I'm also wondering what's so great about going to a private beach? I mean, it doesn't sound like much to me. Yes it can be good to get out of the house, but who cares when it's so close to the end? And while he's choosing to go along, what is so great about going with one other person... that would possibly appeal if you were in a showmance and that person was still left in at the F4.

Am I the only one who has been suspicious of this reward since we learned what it was? I mean, maybe they're going to take him to the set of some movie on a private beach? Something MORE something than it sounds?

Anonymous said...

Sorry I had to take a moment but there are not enough. I am scarred for life....Jerry in his tighty whities

I see london I see Frnce...........
ewwwww

Sydney said...

This may have been mentioned, but is ti possible Dan has referred to the trip as "a day at the beach" -- which is how people describe something EASY -- and we are all taking him literally?

TerryinCA said...

Wait Im confused now..I thought someone said he is taking Michelle with him to the beach?
If he goes alone....I mean really alone how could it effect the result of the game?
I was thinking he was meeting up with a jury house guest to try and feel the mood of the house.
Is it really "over" next week????

Pass the nana's Nana and Laurie

Jackie said...

Terry - The Michelle rumor started because Dan was mumbling to himself that if he could get Michelle's vote he might have a chance. He may or may not be taking a jury member on the beach trip. We really don't know. Lots of people read a lot into the feeds as actuality when it should be speculation.

Anonymous said...

Ahh, we get all up in Michelle's business when she drank. But it's okay when Keesha drinks a whole bottle of wine, even hoards it, because Renny is gone? And precious Dan, he gets to get tipsy and flirtatious and it's okay because why? He doesn't mean it? Um okay. Just saying...

Anonymous said...

Did Dan leave the house?

Nana in the NW said...

terryinca--my thoughts as to "how it could impact the game"....if he had chose one of the HG to go with him it could have made a diff. based on who was left in the house and how much manipulation there was to change alliances. Of course, if he did get to take someone in the JH that speaks for itself. I wonder if Michelle, indeed is going with him, she will be told to not talk about where she went and with whom??

anon 2:06--I get the feeling you really don't like Dan or Keesha?

Syd 1:12/1:18--interesting theories....In this game anything is possible!

terryinca--it's really over on Sept. 16th. The F2will be picked this Thurs.
(I think). There is usually 4 days of the F2 wasting time in the house.

jb--I'm with you about the money....c'mon would you really risk pissing someone off for 4K and lose 500K? Besides, Jerry has stated several times the money is going to his grandkids and won't even offer it it any deals.

Anonymous said...

Nana, Dislike? Nah. I don't care about any of the HGs. My favorite left last week.

Anonymous said...

I just want Dan to win which I've said a million times. He's my fav. Memphis just got luckier IMO so he deserves the 50,OOO plus the car he already won. Dan is definitely the most intelligent hg this season.
I hope he does get to take Michelle on his trip.

Laurie said...

I changed my avatar again to express my vote. Not that there was any doubt, but I want to do all I can to encourage him getting outta there this week!

Time for the Charger game. Go team!!

Laurie said...

Nina, as long as Jerry doesn't win I don't think I have a favorite anymore. Dan has disappointed me lately but so has Keesha. I guess whoever wins deserves it at this point but I really don't want it to be Jerry.

Anonymous said...

i guess i see your point laurie

But dan is the smartest. Michelle would have been equally pissed if she and ollie or jerry were nominated outright and then she was evicted. Dan was forced to play dirty. He was the decisive vote many times for who left. Memphis is playing a great social and emotional game but Dan is playing an intellectual and psychological game. Dan's performance in the memory comp where he got all the q.s right impressed me and he figured out how to get the envelope from the sumo wrestler and the riddle for the luxury prize.

Happy Sunday Show Day everone!

The house is a pure snoozefest these days. Oh how I wish it were the Colonel in the JH instead of Renny. Oh well...

Jerry is some kind of p'od at Dan today. His crusty/nasty side is really showing. God I hope Memphis kicks him to the curb on Tuesday. A girl can hope!

Laurie said...

Nina, on pure game play I have to agree with you. Dan is smart and strategic and has managed to keep his own integrity through the game. I would like to see him win, even though a few of his antics lately have bugged me. Of course, nobody is perfect. If he doesn't win, my order would be Keesha, Memphis and last Jerry.

I really hope we see Dan, Memphis and Keesha in the final 3 competitions. I think they would tell us who should win then!

Did Julie say Tuesday and Thursday are life shows? Terry and I have plans to see Mama Mia on Tuesday but ... if it's a live show we may have to adjust!

monty924 said...

Laurie, Tuesday is a live eviction and down to final three and the first leg of the HoH.

tbc said...

Good afternoon everyone!


ANYBODY BUT JERRY

I thought Tuesday was live PoV, not eviction.

Laurie said...

Thanks Monty. This could change our plans. We do have our priorities!

monty924 said...

I won't be able to watch live tonight, but I'll enjoy reading all the comments from the blog when I get home.

Have fun everyone! :)

Anonymous said...

Jackie - I still have all my 45s, too! Just bought a new USB turntable, too. I love my old music! Besides, I want my daughter to know what 45s and LPs are! Don't have my 8-tracks anymore, though. :(

Glad to hear the live eviction will be Tuesday. I'll make sure we are at the hotel in Tallahassee by then!

Witt said...

I think the boredom has finally gotten to the HGs, which is why Dan is a little off. I also think that he is a mischievous person and I wouldn't take anything he's doing too seriously. With that being said, I hope he wins it all!!! On a final note, I would rather cancel the trip if it meant going with Michelle.

Also: Tuesday I think is POV coverage and then live eviction.

Happy Sunday Show everyone!
Witt :)

TerryinCA said...

Laurie....we can still see mama mia, take our laptop to Panera and watch the "live" show on Justtvnuts...right? Oh wait, Mama Mia is longer than an hour though...well whatever, we can still go to MM and then drive home FAST and watch it...after reading Jackies blog to see what happened!

tbc said...

Thanks, Witt. I must have misunderstood Julie the other night.

Zoetawny said...

Jackie...

Glad to see you weathered the storm with no major problems. Yea!

I'm still puzzled over Dan's trip and keep trying to guess where he went. I was thinking the vma show but he did leave the BB house a little early for that. Could it be a trip to Catalina Island, via helicopter, just off the coast here in CA? Or, a beach towards San Diego? Or, a beach at all? LOL Dan could have been telling a story to the house guests about the beach trip and it has nothing to do with the beach. As you can see, it's making me crazy. I can't stand unsolved mysteries.

I was thinking just the other day that we haven't had a Roofus sighting in a while. I hope he's all right.

Well, guess I'd better get some things done around the house today. Have a good Sunday!

Laurie said...

Oh Terry, are we addicts or what? Look what you did to me!!!

We can each get home by 9, easily. This is all doable!

Lars Eller said...

Jackie,

Martin Truex Jr.

Drives the 1 car, Back in April or March, I noticed the dollar store had a poster of Martin, however the store manager Jose, stated oh yes this is Martin he's our new driver, however the name on the poster had Denny Hamlin, all I know is the uniform was yellow, Jose went on an extendive vacation to Mexico, returned about 3 weeks ago. I believe what Dan stated is exactly what Sid: wrote regarding day at the beach,


An. Stewart- Love you..

Laurie said...

According to tv.yahoo, BB is on at 8pm on Tuesday in San Diego. It's usually on at 9 but this week Fashion Rocks is in that slot. This means Terry and I have to hurry home from the movie!

Sydney said...

PDX Granny said...

Hi! My name is PDX and I'm a friend of Jackie's - and bananas - and hot dogs! I get it Laurie and I'm in the chair beside Terry, who's in the chair beside Nana, who's in the chair beside you!

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday, and made my daughter write it down. She just gave me one of her looks and did as I asked, all the time shaking her head, grinning and saying "This must have something to do with BB." She loves me in spite of it!! :) The bumper sticker said:

"My banana rides bigger than it looks".

Now to BB..

Anon 11:41, I sure hope there's no ulterior motive for Dan's actions towards Keesha lately. I'm with Nana in thinking that it's just having fun and trying to cheer her up. Both D & M seem to care very much for their girlfriends, and I can't see either of them wanting to mess anything up with them. We've worried in the past over what Danny Boy could have been thinking, and quite often his game plan came out in the DR. Maybe this will too.

Laurie, you'll have to tell me how you got your avatar. I could never figure out how to make mine a .jpg file.

Will we be seeing the Lux. comp. tonight? Hope so!!

Petals said...

LMAO - "Crypt Keeper". HAHAHAHA

I know you guys were all on the edges of your chairs about this: Andy "Braveheart" Murray beat Rafa! He advances to his first ever Grand Slam final against Roger Federer. ROCK ON, ANDY! (Or Roger... I love him, too).

DAN ROCKS, too. I love that he has a pet spider. And ps, I never "washed" my swimsuit when I went swimming every day. I really never did. It never got stinky or anything. Anyone else?

Good luck to Loneseven, who may have to have hip surgery tomorrow. She'd love your prayers.

Laurie said...

ROTFLMAO at the banana quote. I would have probably crashed into another car if I'd seen it. Thanks so much for the good laugh!

I really hope our Dan was just teasing Keesha, too. Gosh, they've all been clear that they didn't want a showmance for weeks now. It would be a shame if booze and boredom got to them. Heaven knows that can happen.

I made my avatar in Paint Shop Pro and just saved it as either a jpg or a gif. Can't remember which. What did you use to make yours?

Laurie said...

Petals, thanks for the news about LoneSeven. She will be in my prayers for sure. Hip surgery doesn't sound like any fun at all. Can you share just her first name so we can pray for her, or do you think L7 will be just as good?

We used to rinse our suits out in regular water to get the chlorine out but I don't remember ever washing a bathing suit.

I watched a little tennis this morning and thought of you. Andy and Roger, eh? When is that played?

Laurie said...

I guess the live feeds are a big snooze fest today. The commenters on Jokers are hilariously describing how people are moving in their sleep. I do hope Jackie isn't glued to her set, she might doze off and miss the real show tonight!

PDX Granny said...

Just came back from catching up on Jokers. I feel like I should lay down and take a nap!

Laurie, I copied some clip art into a Word doc, and added a caption. I tried to save it as .jpg but couldn't. Then I tried the publishing program. That didn't work either. I finally just took a picture of the Word screen with my camera and uploaded that. I had to cover up the flash tho with a 1" sponge. I tired covering it with my fingers, but it showed a red flash in the pic instead of the normal white.

Clementine said...

Hello Everyone,

It really does look like Chinese torture in the house today. I'm guessing the "no books, no TV, no music" rule is to prompt interaction (and friction and paranoia and conversation to be recorded), right? But at this point in the game, what would it matter if BB gave them some form of entertainment? It would actually inspire them to discuss something, and BB might have interesting footage for the show!

I think some people have a very hard time if they have can't have conversation (Jerry and Dan). I would be perfectly happy to speak to no one for days. Although at the end of that time the house would be spotless, the freezer would be packed with meals, my scalp would be sore from all the different hairstyles I experimented with, and all of the furniture would be rearranged. But my mood would be fine, and I wouldn't sleep 90% of the day. Not in my nature!

Petals said...

Laurie - Joyce is Loneseven.

Laurie said...

Thank you, Petals. Consider Joyce held up in prayer by many! Please let us know what happens. (You might be in those prayers, too!)

Another Joyce! Popular name.
