Big Brother: Live Feeds Into the Dawn, Saturday - Aug. 18

Playing dumb ... or just plain dumb?

Now, this is classic Big Brother game play -- hurt feelings, throwing friends under the proverbial reality show bus, getting defensive, a few tears ... that's what we're talking about! If you haven't read my previous post, go read it now. Then get back here.

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Hamster Havoc:
  • Just to recap a bit: As per the decision of the entire Quack Pack (not just one or two, mind you), Shane put Frank and Boogie on the block.
  • Boogie already had it in his mind that if they went up, it would be due to Britney in Shane's ear.
  • Frank already had it in his mind that if they went up, it would be due to Dan in Shane's ear.
  • Nobody is even thinking of Ian in all these tales going about in dizzying circles.
  • Good. 
  • So far, in every confrontation, Ian has been protected. 
  • First, Boogie and Frank confronted Shane. Newbie that he is, Frank is already good at the BB mind games.
  • Boogie is proving to be a pro at the game.
  • I hate to admit that.
  • But he's no one without a bro at his side, methinks.
  • In that first confrontation, Shane threw Britney under the bus.
  • Mainly because the fish have stronger spines than Mr. Comp Winning Hunk Dude.
  • Shane then told Britney he threw her under the bus. Oh, not in so many words. But she indeed knows he did.
  • So she went to confront Boogie and Frank. 
  • While not throwing anyone (other than Shane and how he made the choice) by name, she said she indeed heard they were going to target her and Shane. She admitted to telling Shane that.
  • When she wouldn't give any names, Boogie and Frank turned to blaming Dan.
  • She didn't say no. She didn't say yes.
  • Of course, we know that our boy Ian had a hand in this.
  • His name never came up.
  • So many fake hugs in this game ... Frank and Boogie hugged Britney and said there are options.
  • "This can be fixed." -- Boogie's line of the night.
  • Then Britney confronted Shane and rehashed how he threw her under the bus and how badly he hurt her feelings.
  • Shane is, um ... I want to say a platypus. He's certainly not the sharpest tool in the shed.
  • But he is indeed a tool. That's for sure.
  • That's what we get for BB recruiting folks who've never seen the show.
  • Then Boogie, Frank, Shane, Britney and Dan had a big pow-wow in the HoH room. 
  • I'd call that the light into Teflon Dan to see if he will crack meeting.
  • Dan doesn't crack.
  • He doesn't name names. He actually doesn't even sweat or get excited.
  • Later, Boogie and Frank went to Danielle. Oh my. They told her all about Dan and his Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (at the hands of others). Boogie even told Dan's final two deal with him.
  • Boogie and Frank tag teamed Danielle with accusations that her alliance is dissing her, leaving her out to dry.
  • Danielle and Britney bonded more over bubbles. They planned a name for their two girl alliance.
  • Where were Joe, Jenn and Ashley during all of this?
  • Who cares!
  • Dan told Britney he doesn't know how much longer he can protect Ian.
  • Oh noes!
  • In watching Boogie and Dan, their game play, I have to give them both credit. As a watcher, I can see what they're doing in their games and they're so much better even than Britney or Janelle have been in the season.
  • In the end, despite all hurt feelings, the Quack Pack wants the noms to remain the same.
  • Either Frank or Boogie can go.
  • And Danielle is back in Shane's bed tonight.
  • While Frank and Dan share a bed.
  • What a wonderful world it is.
  • Heh. Not in the Hamster House!
  • The Power of Veto will be a big telling factor in all of this. It will be played out later today.
  • And yet another fish is dying. They're probably just dying to get out of there!

well Shane the gutless wonder did caused some excitement in the house.It is too bad he threw Brit under the bus especially with it being a double elimination week.
Regardless of who ends up going home (I hope it is Boogie) we will have some action this week.
I know I will be talking to my TV telling the Hamsters how dumb they are and don't listen to anything
that jerk tells you.

Ed in Ohio said...

Why are these hamsters being so defensive about Froogies being nom'd? They all act like they are so afraid of Boogie & Frank. Showing them too much respect IMO.

Shane, Brittany, Dan.... they don't owe them an explanation. Why are they so afraid of them? Blaming each other and making excuses.

Shane - Wus (no guts)
Britanny - Scrappy (tough little fighter)
Dan - Smooth (as silk)
Danielle - Delusional (desperate)
Ian - Stealthy (secret agent man)
Joe - Gravitates (to anyone & everyone)
Ashley - Space Cadet (hello! anybody home?)
Jenn - Non-existent (ultimate floater)
Frank/Boogie - PO'd (hopefully color one GONE)

Petals said...

It was a CRAZY night, indeed Ms J! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Froogie squirm.

Mike did make a good point: If they don't start expending the expendables, then "another Maggie will win this game".

Petals said...

LOL Ed!

Terry is a Texan! said...

I gotta say this is the biggest game move so far....F & B on the block is classic good strategy....and if one of them gets the veto...put up Dan!
I cant hope but think Boogie cant win this, he is too money oriented..

Janice said...

Finally the game is getting excting!! Last night was "classic BB"!!

Can't wait to see either Boogie or Frank walk out the door!!

Janice/GA

JonMD1267 said...

I have to admit that I kind of want Boogie & Frank to stay in the house, only because with them both nominated the game has been kicked up another notch. I think if any two can somehow save the bacon it's those two. I do think Frank should realize more that he should try and work with others not just all eggs in with Boogie.

Shane is most for sure a tool they way he just pinned it on Britney, all the people in the group and he just picks her, dummy A move.

I thought the same thing with all of this going on this is a perfect time for Joe, Jenn, or Ashley to be making a move in the game with both sides showing their cards like that, but only time you really saw them last night on BBAD was Joe's hocking mock cooking show and thank gosh they didn't show but a little of that. I know we can see everything going on but you have to think with them being in the house that they would pick up on things as well and Joe, Jenn, or Ashley would go to Frank and Boogie and try and work with them, or the remaining girls would get a clue and start planning something as well to stay together.

Ed in Ohio said...

Petals, Mike Gollum = Loser! LOL!! Love the pic!!!

Petals said...

Frank has drunk a few too many sips of the Boogie juice (ewwww). He is now ruminating alone to the cameras, lamenting their position(s), certain "something can be done".
He seems like he may be a decent kid, but the Boogie juice has swollen his head. Poor Frank has ideas of being part of ChillTown ReDeaux, going to Hollywood, etc...
Sorry Frank - Boogie is a D-lister. The only doors he will open for you are back doors.

Anonymous said...

As Shane told Britney last night, he tells people what they want to hear!!! @@

All Booger had to do was mention Britney's name and Shane caved. It's easier. Well, it was until Brit's rant made his small brain wobble.

After watching him, I'm convinced he doesn't have the brain-power to analyze anything he's told.

Might a nice enough guy on the outside, but in the BB House, the Weak Fish, Idiot, Meathead, and Tool descriptions fit.

Lars said...

Britney planned on throwing Shane under the bus, if I were Britney I'd have that in the back of my mind, wondering if it was pre
" Karma " or not??

Anonymous said...

I don't think Boogie and Frank is pissed off because they are on the block, I think they got pissed off because they thought they had an alliance with the six. They were trying to prove trust and the other was trying to find a way to get them out. I really don't understand why everybody is hating on them. They are not running around spurning untruth. This season make no sense. Get rid of a person because they are strong, get rid of a person because they are having a social game, get rid of a person because they float. You can not do anything without being a target. I am glad Boogie and Frank is calling people out. These people don't have a clue. I think Frank should win like he said if he is HOH he is on the block. He is always trying to survive everybody else is just coat tailing each other.

Becky said...

Jackie, great write up -- but you needed a spit alert for the last sentence. Good think I didn't have any coke on my mouth when I read about the fish dying.

Sunday should be a good show.

Critical Media said...

THIIIISSSS...is the Big Brother I like....when the alliances and gameplay mimic foreign affairs and ruthless leaders! We haven't had that since World World 1: Kaysar vs Maggie, or the tyranny of Dick the Evil.

This could prove to be an entertaining season if the United Nations of Quack drop the ball and overthrow Boogie instead of Frank or if Frank wins POV. Frank staying in the house will be a HUGE mistake. He WILL win HOH and his reign of terror begins. I can even see him even throwing the Double eviction HOH (choosing to play for POV) in order to play for the real one. Either way, he and Shane are the only viable physical players left.

Is the "someone told me you were coming after us" Ian the spy?

Sasha said...

Noooo...IMO, they are pissed because they got put on the block first, before they could do it to someone else, it was done to them. Remember, Frank would have put Dan up (part of Silent Six) but Mike didn't let him for his own reasons. Like many others have said, I have nothing against Frank, kinda like him, but his alliance with Mike is killing him...not sure if he realizes that yet. Anyway, at least it's gotten a bit interesting.

This is BB, anything may make someone a target...including something they had nothing to do with. All that needs to happen is someone else says you did or said something and that can do it. Just the way it goes and partly why we watch.

My favorite thing is when they say they want someone out because they are a "liar" when they theymselves lie when they need to. It's part of the game. Mike wanted Janelle out partly because according to him she's "a liar". He lies too. That's just how it is.

Ed in Ohio said...

Jackie, I like your 'play' on words with Shane's picture! "playing" dumb vs. "plain" dumb. Kudos!

Anonymous said...

You said it all Sasha.
Exactly right!!!

Patty said...

Frank, Boogie, Shane, Jenn, Ashley and Ian are playing in the POV competition.

Anonymous said...

Cat's out of the bag... maybe.

Frank is a LOT more clever than Boogie. He's figured out Ian is the "rat" but Boogie said NOOOO. Frank insisting that it might be. Boogie finally said.. if it was, we might as well pack it in now! LMAO

Ian's worst nightmare.

Sharon

Chacha said...

i am just ready for t POV to be played to see how it will go down from here.

I miss the days where everyone voted for themselves, thought for themselves and came up with their own NOMS.

The past few years with the house votes together is crap.

RBennie said...

I just hope that if someone other than Frank or Boogie wins POV they are not bullied into using it. I don't care which one goes first as long as they both go.

Anonymous said...

I'm hoping for Dan to win POV.
That should shake up Boogie & Frank!

Sharon

Petals said...

Regardless of who wins POV, Froogie will be impossible to live with.

monty924 said...

I'm ready for the POV to be over with. Going on over three hours. Grrrr

monty924 said...

Oh, and Petals... love the avi :))

Petals said...

hehehe, Monty. I knew Boogie reminded me of someone!

If the POV comp is going on this long, does that mean it is endurance? And if so, I hopehopehope Ian out-lasts everyone else. He is the only person I can see NOT being intimidated by the Froog-monster.

monty924 said...

Not sure what it will be, but will hit the four hour mark here in about five mintutes.

RBennie said...

The POV taking this long makes me nervous that something fishy is going on and we won't like the outcome. Hope I'm wrong.

~~Silk said...

Heh. It could have been 10 minutes of competition, and four-plus hours of producers running around yelling and breaking up fights and trying to figure out what to do now that half the hamsters are threatening to kill the other half.

Anonymous said...

RBennie,

Am I right in thinking this the longest POV break in history?

Can't help wonder if the extended time includes more than the POV... like maybe Pandora's, or even that ball machine.

BB mgmt has really screwed around with the game this year. Their constant interference isn't letting the hamsters to work things out themselves. I don't like it.

Sharon

monty924 said...

Going on five hours. The comps where they all take their own turn take longer, but I'm not sure I remember one lasting five hours. Hmmm

monty924 said...

It very well could be POV with Pandora's box thrown in at the end of the comp. Who knows???

Anonymous said...

Surely BB wouldn't be blocking the feeds - just because they can - and for however long they want?

Sharon

monty924 said...

No, I doubt it. If it is something timed, think about it. Ashley is playing. Need I say more, lol!

Anonymous said...

The cheating and manipulating continues with the producers making it THEIR game. They want Boogie and Frank to stay.
Not the kind of game I was hoping for.

Anonymous said...

I'm trying my best to reserve any condemnation until we actually know what's transpiring. Could be any number of things going on.

Heck, Boogie/Frank may have lost the POV, throwing the house into total upheaval, with Boogie having a total mental collapse... whereupon BB has to haul him off to the loony-bin!

(I can dream)

Sharon

~~Silk said...

Sharon - Yeah, I was thinking something similar, but more involving a Shane/Frank confrontation, or a hamster/producers confrontation about manipulation or rules interpretation.

Nana in the NW said...

Joker's Update is reporting CBS said there was a medical emergency and the POV comp. has been put on hold while they figure out what to do.

monty924 said...

Oh dear!! Hope it isn't anything serious.

Anonymous said...

jokers and mortys are talking about frank being given a chip in his palm before picking pov. this is crazy. the producers are driving this game not the houseguests.

Anonymous said...

Still trivia per Jokers, nothing posted about any medical emergencies.

Anonymous said...

nothing about frank and the chipe either on Jokers, stop posting false info please.

Petals said...

Well, I don't want anyone DEAD or anything...But an injury, a good fight - heck yeah!!
Sharon, I agree: It is so hard to not jump to conclusions & be skeptical about production interference.
I tend to think that if votes could be swayed to have a HG stay, then Janelle would still be there.
BUT! Boogie does seem to know several camera people & behind-the-scenes stuff.
(I'm watching Hunger Games. I didn't read it, but am actually enjoying the movie)
A chip?

monty924 said...

Just read that it was reported in the LiveFeeds Tech Support Chat room by CBS_BB_Production. Anyone could have posted that. Won't believe it until it is true.

Anon, that probably didn't happen. Someone posted it at Jokers with their opinion that something fishy was going on and it grew legs and wings. Supposedly Boogie got HG choice and chose Ian, then Frank pulled Ian's chip out of the bag forcing a redraw and he also pulled a HG choice chip. CBS had them redo it for filming and he just held the same chip in his hand so they got him pulling it out of the bag. Conspiracies are C-R-A-Z-Y this season.

Sharon said...

No clue what the emergency might be, but sounds like it was at some point during the POV comp.

I have to say I'm surprised there haven't been injuries with some of the comps. Especially those that are so slippery and almost all of the hamsters falling. You'd think they would be provided bit of protective padding to help prevent injuries.

Hope it's not serious.

monty924 said...

Oh, Hunger Games... I've been wanting to see that. Is it out on DVD or is it on the tube?

monty924 said...

You can read about the chip conspiracy at Hamsterwatch or watch it on Flashback at 12:06.

monty924 said...

Wonder if they'll be back up before BBAD? *half kidding*

Anonymous said...

again, if you go to jokers, none of this stuff is reported, their latest is "Sat 6:51 PM BBT 6 hours and 30 minutes of trivia NT - MoonliteSkyy, that's it, nothing about medical emergencies or conspiracies.

Anonymous said...

After Boogie was able to convince Danielle to backdoor Janelle my initial thought was its going to turn out like Evil Dick and Danielle season.
Dick was close to eviction yet HG's couldn't evict him or Danielle. I think it may have been to obvious having Janelle stay until the end, however I believe production used her.

Petals said...

DVD today, I RedBoxed it. Then I saw it on my DirectTV lineup, too. So both, Monty.
It (HG) really sucks you in. Like I said, I didnt even read the book(s), but am really digging the flick.
It's a good way to pass the time as we wait-out this POV/blocked feeds.

Petals said...

OH - for everyone: Hunger Games is similar to BB, in a way. Production interference, fan favorites, fight for survival, alliances...

Petals said...

and a showmance!

Sharon said...

I'm not a member of Jokers' site, so I have to assume you must be a member to be privy to quite a bit of information there, and non-members are only able see the regular update posts.

Is that correct?


meb said...

I read all three books in three days (The Hunger Games), I was socaught up in them. Loved the book(s) much better than the first moview. Even tho the movie was excellent. There's no way they could get everything from the first book in one movie... as it was the movie was like 2 hrs and 10 minutes. Enjoy Petals.

Jackie, I'll wait to hear from you what's really going on with BB. It is a little scary though.

PDX Granny said...

Britney was talking about them dumping the bag after the draw. She said some of the drawings have been so skeptical in the past, but they never did do the bag dump. I'm not sure if it's been done all season, or if this was the first time. Nothing was said about Frank, or anyone else having a chip ahead of time.

Shane mentioned that while putting the keys in the slots he was being questioned about whether or not he really wanted to put up Frank and Boogie, but it didn't sound like they were "telling" him what to do. It's especially obvious after hearing this that production tries to put ideas into their heads. But outright cheating? I sure hope not!!

monty924 said...

Anon 10:07, it was posted on Jokers just not in the live feed updates forum. Jokers has taken it down now though. It was in the News and Rumors forum. Just saw it and when I refreshed it, it was gone.

MikesGirl said...

No one was posting false info on this site. I don't know where it came from but it was posted on Jokers about a medical emergency. I'm not saying it was true, just stating that it was posted. When I went back to see if anything else had been posted, it had been removed.

monty924 said...

Sharon, I'm not a member of Jokers either, but anyone can read the forums. I use it for Survivor clips all the time. Most people just look at the QuickView Feeds updates because they are on the home page, but you can scroll down to other BB forums or use the forums bar at the top of the page.

You just can't post if you aren't a member.

Anonymous said...

that is my point, they pull garbage down when it is just not true. Why did you take it as "gospel"? I'm just anti-conspiracies and straight-up false information.

monty924 said...

Feeds are back and everything appears to be fine!

monty924 said...

Sounds like it was an individual timed thing and that's why it took so long. Everyone can calm down now, lol

Petals said...

is this live? Boogie looks like his creepy, pissed-off self. Maybe that's a good sign?

monty924 said...

Anon 10:23, not sure who you are referring to as "you". I didn't believe it once I saw that it was posted in the LiveFeeds Chatroom. I'm sure CBS wouldn't go there to make an announcement.

PDX Granny said...

Right now Boogs is sitting on the couch outside looking very unhappy. Danielle and Ian are playing pool. No one else is in sight. Frank just joined Boog. In the flashback I also hear Brit.

So if there was an emergency, we know it wasn't one of them.

Petals said...

alot of Anon-Anons have posted here this evening, have you noticed?

monty924 said...

Nobody is saying who won and Shane is nowhere in sight. Maybe he won it and is in the DR. Speculation here... not reporting anything. :)

monty924 said...

The backyard is also completely cleaned up so the comp has been finished for a while. Oh, and Ashley is still in there, unhurt!

I was referring to Nana in the NW said...who reported it like it was a fact at 9:26 PM, is that OK with you Monty924?

Petals said...

Hey - Anonymous Actual Fan - please don't use that tone at Monty. We're all friends here, k?

Petals said...

There must be a reason for Froogie's banal conversation right now...

Sharon said...

So, there's been enough time since the comp finished that BB had time to clean up the yard and no lockdown.

Nobody is talking about who won yet.
Anyone think there's a chance BB did this feed-shutdown on purpose, and instructed hamsters not to discuss the outcome?

Anonymous said...

Wow, what tone is that Petals? I simply responded to Monty924 and wondered about the tone of that question as well, it's not like I attacked Monty924, they didn't post the bogus information. Sorry I'm not a big fan of bogus info.

Petals said...

Oh man...what's up with Boogie's hair?

monty924 said...

Frank won POV

Petals said...

Speaking of bogus info - it seems like all of them are having ridiculous conversations. No mention of POV at all.

PDX Granny said...

Ian just asked Danielle if it was Ashley going home. That must mean one of the guys won POV.

Petals said...

And Jenn is going up against Boogie, so that is why boogie looks so glum (or Gollum! LOL)

Critical Media said...

I have to say that this season sucks in terms of gameplay. The had the chance to get Frank out of the game and instead went for Janelle?????

Now he's going to continue winning HoH and POVs... Quack Pack needs to pray Shane doesn't go home. That's their only hope while Frank is still in the house.

Sharon said...

So, just like they planned, Frank won POV. @@
He's like a cat with 9 lives!

Boogie has to be upset because he knows Frank will take himself off the block.

Froogie will be working together trying to have Dan put up in Frank's place, and sent home. As of now, they've pretty much screwed up Dan's game, but hopefully their plan won't work.

Petals said...

Sharon, I agree. I'd like to see Dan stay.

Petals said...

Does anyone think that any of the comps are geared toward Frank (or strength?). Ian keeps mentioning how they are "due" for a memory or brainy comp, but it never happens...?

monty924 said...

Jackie has a new post up

Sharon said...

Petals, I actually find Frank a rather likable guy. Certainly beats idiot Shane!

It's Booger I don't like. It's turning out that Frank is the one with the brains and he's figured a some things out all on his own. Boogie managed to change Frank's mind, and it hasn't always worked out very well... for Frank.

It will be really funny if Frank starts making his own decisions, especially after Boogie messed him up a couple of times.

Nana in the NW said...

anon--since you so "nicely"called me out on spreading rumors I feel a need to respond.
Many people were questioning the long delay in the blocked feeds. I responded with information I had read at joker's. Anyone who is an "old school BB fan" knows that Joker's is just regular viewers commenting about what they see on the live feeds. My intention was not to start any problems here but just offer a POSSIBLE explanation.That is how comments and information has been shared in the past. Not necessarily fact but what another blogger has read/heard. I have been a loyal supporter of Jackie and appreciate all the time she puts into this blog. I try very hard to not get involved in verbal confrontations as I know she doe not like it. Last season there were many problems with this, so I have chose to not comment this year. I should have not bothered to share what I had read.....won't happen again!

I am glad that Jackie was able to see how the "chip" thing really played out.

No one wrote anything and said it was gospel. Shheeesh
