Big Brother 13 Live Feeds Into Thursday Dawn 7/21


No more exciting than chess

You know ... in order for me to report on the live feeds, I really prefer some sort of action! I'm not one who's going to relay all the small talk -- what celebrities they like, etc. Nor will I report on every breath they take or exactly what they're eating at any given moment. I watch for stuff that catches my eye, things I think are interesting. This crew didn't give me a heck of a lot of fodder yesterday.

Here's what happened yesterday and last night in that Big Brother House of Droning Dullards:
  • Shelly, who could very well be the dark horse in this race, continues to work her social game. Every single person in the house likes her. No one considers her a threat.
  • She cleans and socializes.
  • I think they should watch out!
  • Rachel told Brendon she doesn't like girls who are manipulative and tell sob stories.
  • Oh my ... Rachel herself is a walking manipulative sob story!
  • Rachel thinks the HoH comp will be a Majority Rules question comp.
  • I agree judging on the questions on the CBS website.
  • Those are always a crap shoot. Anyone could win; it's all a guessing game.
  • Heck, I didn't even know how to answer some of them!
  • Jordan got the HoH camera and they actually had fun with the photos.
  • One thing different from previous years is the lack of vitriol between the two camps.
  • But no one other than Brendon really likes Rachel.
  • Cassi has been pretty much the only one to call her out on it.
  • Well, Jeff, too. But his doesn't count as much as he knows they need to work together.
  • Cassi told Dominic that Shelly is the most trustful person in the house. She said she won't do anything sneaky or shady because she enjoys her job and wants to go back to it.
  • Alas, she also told Dominic about Shelly's "friend to all" strategy. She advised Dominic to get together with Shelly after she (Cassi) goes.
  • Jordan told Cassi she's worried about next week. Cassi told her people really have to get Rachel or Brendon out.
  • We know that.
  • I do agree it wasn't time for Jeff and Jordan to sever the Brendon/Rachel ties this week. It would be far better for them if someone else did the deed.
  • Cassi packed. Shelly plans to pack in the morning.As I post this
  • Dominic threw grapes at passerby from the chess board area.
  • Rachel actually picked up the grapes for him when he jokingly asked her to do so.
  • Wanna bet she wouldn't have done that for a girl?
  • When Brendon gave Adam a choice between bacon and cigarettes, Adam chose bacon.
  • I didn't realize that bacon was so addictive!
  • Speaking of which, now I want bacon.
  • As I post this, Shelly is the only one up. Out in the yard smoking ... I wish she'd talk to us like Evel Dick did every morning.
  • Now I must go fix some bacon.

Yawnsers


Jordan mingling


HoH digital camera fun


Shelly does windows


Brendon's knee does look painful

Good morning Jackie!

Mornin Miss Jackie!

I'm sorry Alison G stuck us with these boring house guests. Maybe next season (if there is one) they can go back to strangers in the house. And lets not recruit people. Lets have actual fans of the show like Adam.

I hope you are staying cool. I think the heat is getting to me the small amount I am in it. I just feel drained today. All I wanna do is sleep in my A/C cooled room.

Hi Jackie, hi All! I'm not looking forward to tonight's elimination. I don't want Cassi to go. I know it would have been the wrong move for Jordon to put Brendon and Rachel on the block, but oh how sweet it would have been. It's 96 degrees in NYC right now, but feels like 106. I'm seriously considering spending the night at work just so I don't have to go outside, LOL.

DEAR JACKIE,
I HAVE TO TAKE A MOMENT TO WRITE YOU A PERSONAL LETTER TO SAY THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY LIFE, EVEN WITH ALL THE SUFFERING YOU HAVE TO PUT UP AND TO ENDURE AS WELL AS BORING LATE NIGHT FEEDS AND I KNOW IT MUST BE REALLY HARD ON YOU TO NOT ONLY HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ONE OF THE CRAZIEST HOUSE IN BB BUT TO ALSO KEEP US UPDATED AS WELL EVEN WITH YOUR PAINFULL KNEE.
WHAT YOU DO IS SO MUCH APPRECIATED BY ME IN A WAY THAT MEAN A LOT AS WELL.
WHILE I DID WATCH THE SHOW, FOR SOME REASON C.B.S. HAS PROBLEMS WITH USING CLOSE CAPTION FOR THE DEAF AND IT WAS REALLY HARD TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH ALL THOSE CRAZY LIPS TO READ (TRY LIP READING RACHEL ) AND THEN THE CAPTION STOP WORKING ABOUT HAVE WAY IN THE FIRST HALF HOUR SO I WAS REALLY CONFUSE AND PULLING MY HAIR AND HEAD OFF NOT UNDERSTANDING AND THEN LOST THE WHOLE THING SO I WAS UNABLE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPEN, BUT THEN WHEN YOU WROTE YOUR BLOG AND UPDATED IT ALL I WAS ABLE TO CLEAR UP AND UNDERSTAND BETTER WHAT HAPPEN OR WHAT WENT ON.
SO I HOPE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN I SAY, NOT ONLY THANK YOU, BUT ALSO KNOW YOUR AN ANGEL AND A SAINT TO BE ABLE TO WATCH IT ALL AND PUT UP WITH IT AND THEN WRITE US ABOUT IT, I ALWAY LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR BLOG AND IT REALLY DOES HELP AND MEAN ALOT AS WELL. I WISH I COULD BE HALF THE PERSON YOU ARE AND HOPE YOU KNOW YOU REALLY ARE A SPECIAL PERSON AND I ALWAY LOVE READING ALL THE GUESTS GREAT AND FUNNYS POST AS WELL.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME UNDERSTAND AND ENJOY SOMETHING NEW.
THANK YOU
JOEY

Wow Joey that must be frustrating to have the captioning go out. I get frustrated when they all whisper to each other. Usually i am doing something other than staring at the TV when BB is on so I have to try to read the little print across that room to see what they are saying. I can not imagine having to read everything being said. My sister used CC when the Osbournes were on cause she never could understand anything Ozzy said. Apparently the CC people could not either cause some of the translations were quite funny.

Aw, thanks Joey. I can't imagine trying to read Rachel's lips. But, on the bright side, you're saved from her laugh. It's an annoying and weird laugh.

It seems like a smart move for the newbies would be to vote out Shelly. That would keep Cassi not only around, but immune for a couple of weeks to harp on Rachel.

Rachel is really no match for Cassi, and she could easily get herself and Brendan nominated. In the cross-hairs of an immune Cassi, Rachel might even break down. At best (from the vets' viewpoint), she would be a major distraction to that alliance.

With Rachel and Brendan on the block, the newbies' next smart move might be not to vote out Rachel, but Brendan instead. That would leave Rachel, who would be a totally uncontrollable loose cannon in the vets' alliance!

With her connection to Dominic, Daniele might see the writing on the wall, and support all of this.

Voting out Shelly could also be smart because she appears to be a very skilled floater.

Someone needs to make sure Rachel knows Cassi is a professional model. Even though Cassi is leaving that will really get under Rachel's skin!!!

Holly C said...

SO agree with you on Rachel! WHY oh WHY did they bring her back of all people! But I guess she is better than Jesie...but not by much! I have liked Shelly from the beginning and picked her in my BB fantasy. Thank you for NOT posting all of the small talk and other crap! I really appreciate this blog and your "filtering"! =)

I want bacon!

Sally said...

Adam's fondness for bacon makes me laugh. My sister once told me that she could easily become a vegetarian, except she likes bacon too much. Maybe there is an addictive quality there.

Joey, I enjoyed reading your tribute to Jackie's Big Brother recaps. I really appreciate the recaps myself, and reading your post gives me a whole new perspective about how valuable they are.

I'm really, really, really hoping that Rachel and Brendon don't win HOH tonight!

Bacon is soooo addictive. I think it's the nitrates. Once I was up to 3 packs a week. I have cut down to one.
