Big Brother 15: Live Feeds Tuesday into Wednesday - August 6-7

Yeah, there is something wrong ...

... and I call the something wrong recruiting these hamsters instead of letting the folks who really want to be in that nuthouse get in there. I don't think they can promise us things will be "back to normal" soon. What's normal? How does "normal" apply in the context of this season? It doesn't! They LIE! Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of the Abnormal:
  • Judd said Elissa asked him if he's ever acted. Oh my. The guy could often use subtitles on the live feeds because he mumbles and doesn't move his lips hardly at all. He couldn't be an actor.
  • He might want to look into being a ventriloquist, though!
  • Elissa is still holding her grudge against Aaryn. While I personally have my own grudge against Aaryn, if I were in the house and not "in with the in crowd," I think I'd be mending fences just in view of the end game.
  • Jessie admitted to Helen that Candice is sure she's going home. Jessie thinks she herself will go home next week.
  • But, I ask ... who will be the second out the door this week?
  • Bwahaha! They're still not thinking so much along the lines of a double eviction this week!
  • Helen told Jessie that Candice will be the first person she'll actually miss who has left the house.
  • I can see that.
  • On a side note: I see in the comments that people think there's a larger goal of jury this season. We've seen that the last few seasons. For folks like Jessie (unemployed), McCrae (pizza guy), Andy (two jobs part-time not earning a lot) ... that extra $750 a week stipend for basically an extended vacation without stress is like a pot of gold. Due to their locale, it's possible Spencer and Judd don't earn that much working per week. Plus, those making jury seem to be a bit more a part of "BB History."
  • Judd told Jessie that he really likes Helen.
  • Both Judd and Jessie are more willing to work with Helen and Elissa than they are with Amanda and McCrae.
  • Some joked that if GinaMarie were to win a special power, she'd have to ask everybody how to use it as she would be so confused.
  • Andy told Helen that he trusts her more than he does Judd.
  • I notice he didn't tell her that he trusts her more than he does Amanda.
  • They all think Candice is a good cook.
  • That doesn't mean they'll keep her in the house, mind you.
  • GinaMarie had an outright panic attack hissy fit over having to write a blog entry. She's either functionally illiterate or perhaps has a learning disability that has never been addressed.
  • That said, GinaMarie has very low self-esteem on the whole. While she talks all bravado and loud, she doesn't seem to think she can do anything well.
  • Jessie has her own self-esteem issues and handles it by desperately seeking approval from others.
  • Psychiatric Help: 5 cents ... as per Lucy VanPelt.
  • I have my own issues, probably enough for a magazine subscription! But, that said, I wouldn't be in that house.
  • Helen, in particular, pep-talked GM. Amanda also tried but she's not as good at it as Helen.
  • They had actual fun with the HoH camera this week, unlike last week.
  • Then we had technical difficulties for a long, long time. It started out with the NO SIGNAL bit I screen-capped last week, then went into the message above with the smaller cameras working.
  • Aaryn feels she can't trust Amanda now.
  • Well, duh.
  • Who can really trust her other than McCrae?
  • Candice thinks that GinaMarie doesn't like her for personal reasons.
  • Well, duh.
  • Jessie tried for another round of "vote Amanda out" only to be met with failure.
  • Helen said Amanda has done her no wrong.
  • I say Amanda has done her no wrong ... YET.
  • She will, though. She will.
  • They held the bachelorette party for Amanda. Everybody except Candice was in attendance at one point or another -- including the guys.
  • Amanda claims that McCrae will be moving to Florida to live with her.
  • Yeah, let's see how long that lasts!
  • Jessie has realized that Judd has been throwing her under the bus.
  • Well, duh.
  • Jessie keeps trying different avenues in her Get Amanda Out efforts.
  • But, at this time, she's probably only harming her own "life" in the house.
  • I personally agree with her -- Amanda out would be beneficial for most remaining in the house.
  • But it ain't gonna happen.
  • At least not in the first eviction this week.
  • We can't predict the second.
  • We can only hope ...

Thanks Jackie. As I mentioned before, I really am not watching my live feeds so I appreciate your updates even more.
Sorry - Nope, so sympathy here for GM. None at ALL. She is 33, there is no excuse for illiteracy. She is a product of the NYC school system, which isn't bad.
So...NOPE. Just another check in the "reasons to dislike GM" column.
While I think Demanda enjoys "handling" McR, I think the entire romance is a fauxmance - it is for camera time, period. This is JMO, time will tell.

Petals said...

Need a LAUGH? I just stumbled on this - don't miss the photos & captions, they are HILARIOUS!!!!!

Witt said...

Good morning all!

I have no sympathy for GM either. it's hard to drum up some sympathy for someone so downright mean.

We have a dear friend with dyslexia who set his goal to graduate from college. It took him awhile, since he could not always carry a full load of credits, but he did it!! I was so proud of him, as was his family. He went on to run various programs in his county for youth, and is now the coolest stay-at-home dad out there (he and his wife swapped roles and are both so happy). Whenever I hear someone say, "I can't," I think of my friend, who had obstacles too and very systematically jumped each one, looking at the big picture.

Jessie is probably at the WTH stage now -- I'm not going to win, too many people against me and they don't care, so I'm going to say what I want and who cares if I'm in this nut house any more? I told my husband last week if I was in this house, I would have lost all my marbles long ago.

Jackie, you're amazing!

Witt :)

Witt said...

Okay, Petals, that was hilarious! Must now clean off coffee from computer monitor. LOL

I feel so badly for Candice. But Candice may be better off in the long run out of that house and away from that toxicity and house of hate. Who wants to be in a BB house or jury house with hateful bigots. She has been treated horribly by most of them for purely personal reasons. They are either jealous of her success or just plain mean racists. In this day and age, 2 or 3 of them act like it is the Jim Crow south in that house.

RBennie said...

No sympathy here for GM either. Whatever learning disabilities she may or may not have are no excuse for her nasty, mean behavior in the house. Since she has no job to go back to when she gets out of the house, now might be a good time for her to take some adult ed classes!

RBennie said...

Petals, that was the funniest thing ever! The GM stuff almost made me pee my pants.

Petals said...

me too, RBennie!
Totally agree, Caroline. SO sad, but she will be better off.

Hey Witt :)


(did anyone buy lottery tickets?)

Chacha said...

First off, I have missed all of yous guys..... I have been busy with the kid who just came back from Europe and Israel and now my husband left for a birding expidition in Ecaudor with his mother.

i have feelings but they are disgust for GM. If there is a learning disability, there are programs to help with that.
I do believe she acts loud and obnoxious to cover serious issues she has, and not just a learning disability.

I can't stand Amanda and she was one of my favorites in the beginning. Its crazy how they say one day in the BB house is like a week. Well it took about three weeks from the beginning to realize that she is as bad if not worse than Aaryn, I will say though Amanda and GM are neck in neck in the racist, hatred dept.
I also hear that Amanda is no longer employed with Prudential and her license is now inactive.


Anonymous said...

Jessie might be a nice person in real life. I'll give her that.
What made her think she wanted to be in this game? She is the weakest player. She has zero game...and yes, the whining after...could elaborate.. but naw

Side note, what is up with her belly? Is she pregnant?

Anonymous said...

Jesse is sway back and should not be on that show. She has huge issues too.
I hope BB feels thier failure in casting and goes with the houseguests that know the BB game and want to be on the show.

Sasha said...

Just curious, Anon 11:54: what does being 'sway back' have to do with being on the show? Definitely has issues. Maybe she's one who wanted to 'be on TV'? Who knows. She's in with vipers.

Sasha said...

OH wait, maybe I got it. I guess the 'sway back' was in answer to the belly comment? Sorry, I kinda read it as one statement. Ooops.

Sharon said...

Patals - thanks for posting that link. Absolutely priceless!!
____________________

Witt - Jessie has been pushing hard for an Amanda eviction, but getting nowhere. She's so discouraged with everything going on in the house that she has said she doesn't want to be there anymore. So yes, she's reached the WTH stage.... for now. No doubt, she'll be crying to stay if she goes on the block (for real).
_____________

As I posted on Jackie's thread yesterday, I'm quite sure GM does have a learning disability of some kinds. We don't know if it's dyslexia, but there certainly are indications.

We don't know the circumstances of her childhood. Was there a condition not recognized, or help not offered and received? Whatever the circumstances, she could choose to be "the better person" .... which wouldn't have resulted in getting fired from a job she loves!

MikesGirl said...

Someone mentioned on an earlier post that BB may be preempted due to football on Thursday. I checked my listings and it shows that NFL is on NBC. That shouldn't affect BB.

Anonymous said...

I hate how they won't let them sing*.

Jeremy spoke in, class to-day.

(yes get the silly copyrights..I have a deal that they could profit of, if I can think of it, why can they not?) side note

Oh and yes..Jeremy..meant something.. :)

Chacha said...

Just announced--- all remaining house guests will be in Jury or in house on Finale night!!!!! This will be great.
Wonder if this will change who to vote out on Thursday.
Will Julie announce at the opening of the show or wait?

RBennie said...

Where did you read that Chacha? I hope it's true, because that would seriously piss off a lot of people in that house who don't want Candice to be on the jury.

Sharon said...

If true, THAT would be hysterical!!!!!
I'd love that kind of comeuppance!
Maybe BB decided who/when goes to Jury because of all the rampant racism and ugly going on?

Anonymous said...

I do like GM but do have some compassion for her learning disability (if that is what she has). My granddaughter has a learning disability and things that seem so simple to most people is very very difficult for her. I watch her try so hard and not able to finish some task that we call simple. No amount of schooling will help if you have reached you mental capassity. Just be a little kinder in judging her for that. The racial stuff GO FOR IT.

Sharon said...

Mikesgirl,
Jokers has listed the preemption due to football. But you might be ok, depending on where you live, like the Pacific timezone.
For those of us in the Mountain timezone, the Thursday night schedule shows NFL pre-season on the BB channel. BB won't be showing for us until 1:00AM.

Chacha said...

Also GM blog is up- after reading this I seem to think she isn't very smart, is a little delusional and also do believe she may be dyslexic.

Chacha said...

I am not going to make fun of GM for any learningn disabilities, but will for needing a psychiatrist and meds. Maybe with that psychiolgy degree Aaryn talks about she can ber her DR.


just an add on from my previous comment. She is ALOT delusional.
I think when she does her exit with the handlers she will need to be taken directly to the asylum.

If I was Nick i would skip the finale. Forfeit the BB money to keep my safety from a NUT.

Sharon said...

Chacha - After reading GM's blog, I see BB didn't make spelling corrections... as Candace thought BB would.

It's painfully obvious she has issues, and the possibility of dyslexia. But I also think it's probable that some of the spelling is due to Jersey pronunciation (that's not intended to be a slap at Jersey folks).

I have no idea what her IQ level is, but agree it doesn't appear to be particularly high. I'd also place bets she's not used to writing anything longer than a quick text message. Her fixation on Nick borders on insanity.

RBennie said...

Wow, just read the HOH blog. I don't usually bother to read them, but after hearing so much about this one, I couldn't resist. Although I'm really tempted to be as mean as GM is, I'm going to be an adult and just say that was the saddest thing I've ever read. The total obsession with Nick was almost scarier than the writing! In what grade do we learn to capitalize the first word in a sentence?

BJ said...

I just read GM's blog and don't think she has dyslexia (I know I brought it up first-sorry). I am not sure if it is a low IQ, lack of education or some other kind of learning disability, but it has to be something. Bet she texts a lot. Having said that, it is no excuse for being so hateful in her words and actions. Never having been in the house I really wonder what comes over people. Many of them have good jobs where they interact with the public and you know they don't at that way at those times. I am going to go read "Lord of the Flies" again.

BJ said...

In my above post that is supposed to sat "act" this way not "at" this way.
Best line last night @@:Spencer said,
"I don't say anything offensive because I don't have it in my heart to say something racist". No he just makes over the top sexual remarks

Chacha said...

RBennie

Please don't hold it against me that i do not use caps all the time. I am usually at work while commenting and my computer has a mind of its own. I also use caps on my computer so sometimes it seems I am shouting at people. Please know I am not

BJ- Spencer is just all around disgusting. From everything I have read or seen with my eyes(I did NOT see the child porn thing)he is horrible. I wonder how his family is taking it as his dad is a Judge.

Chacha said...

So with all remaining houseguest in Jury or the winner what is your take on this.
I have been reading on other sites that CBS wants to monitor what happens with the houseguests once they leave...as in will the ones that have lost jobs or been villified even return for finale.

My take is that the racist ones that are in the house would be in until jury either way and also this was billed as the Biggest BB ever so it would make sense they are all in jury.

RBennie said...

Now Chacha you know I wasn't talking about you! I only bash the hamsters.

I'd love to know if they confiscated his computer. Nah, probably just "asked around". But in the clip, you can see that he's talking into someone else's mike.

Sharon said...

Only real thing left of the BB game this season is all the misplaced paranoia.

In past BB seasons, we had true fans of the game, not a bunch of recruited people. Past players realized and accepted the cameras were on 24/7 and even talked to fans via those cameras. Heck, we could seem them (like Dan) do or say something and then wink into the camera. This batch of recruited players are as clueless and they are crude and tasteless.

Kind of ironic when you think about BBAD switching channels, with the the constant cussing bleeped. Now it's "only" the ugly comments that make it on air, and none of it gets bleeped.

Sharon said...

Pardon the typos. They didn't show before I hit publish. :(

BJ said...

Rbennie- I concur, Spencer is disgusting. That's why I did the eye roll @@ with the comment. He needs a touch of reality. Hope someone puts together all his disgusting remarks and shows it to him when he gets out. Wouldn't hurt to do it for all of them.

Chacha said...

RBennie-- no problem!!

BJ- then videos are out there, you just have to search for them

Jackie said...

Sharon - GinaMarie is from Staten Island -- that is NOT an NJ accent. It's a horrible Staten Island accent.

As far as the Spencer child porn joke incident, although in despicable horrible taste, watched in context it proves to be just a tasteless joke and nothing warranting any serious investigation. He was mocking "backwoods" people from Minnesota all day with McCrae and that was a (poor) example he came up with.

Jackie said...

After reading her HoH blog ... while it's certainly not MY writing style, I recall seeing worse from various hamsters in the house. It was nowhere as bad as her panic attack about it.

Sharon said...

Thanks for clearing up the misconception Jackie. Didn't mean to insult Jersey-ites. I've never been to the East coast area, and only heard bad imitations on tv!

Which brings to mind.... how does someone from Staten Island manage to come up with a bad SI accent? lol

Jackie said...

Most of the Jersey Shore show cast also came from Staten Island, thus reinforcing the misconception. SI is near where I live in NJ albeit a borough of NYC. I do know some people who only have a very slight accent, so the one GM is indeed BAD.

Chacha said...

Just read a release from Union Pacific.
Apparently they are the ones that contacted the law enforcement. And again they can do nothing as of now as he is on unpaid leave.
As I said I didn't see this live but the clips I have seen show he was using McCraes mic. It is a horrible tasteless joke.

Sharon said...

Chacha - methinks UP might be trying to build a case.
HGs don't know, but this season is turning into a nightmare for them.

JimmyB said...

Here is the release from Union Pacific. It'd be nice if people stick with FACTS:

“Due to the volume of feedback Union Pacific has received from the public about Spencer Clawson’s August 5 comments on the CBS reality show Big Brother 15, the company wants to reiterate that it has taken all the action it can under the Collective Bargaining Agreement until Mr. Clawson is released from the show. Mr. Clawson took an unpaid leave of absence to participate on Big Brother 15. Union Pacific has notified law enforcement of Mr. Clawson’s August 5 comments.”

The statement from the police dept:

“The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made,” a police spokesperson told EW in a statement following TMZ‘s original report. “Due to the nature of the comments, our department moved quickly to look into the matter. At this time we haven’t found that any criminal act was committed.”

What Spencer did was NOT A JOKE.
No more than what happened when Aaryn was talking to Candace. That could be a joke too. Its not. Letting Spencer off the hook and saying its a joke is just an excuse. A lame one at that.
He disgusts me just to see him on camera. Much more than what anyone else has done in that house. Its gross. All his other comments regarding women are horrid as well.

Anonymous said...

If Spencers dad is a judge he should throw that dude in jail.

Spencers dad a judge.....seems as unlikely as GM's dad being a judge or something similar.

Spencers family must be very proud of their son who is old enough to know better.

Petals said...

Then by that token, Anon, GM & Amanda need to go to be prosecuted for murder & rape. Well, they TALKED about it, didn't they? Like Spencer?

Sharon said...

Petals - You are correct, and thank you for saying it. The Police have checked Spence's home and did not find anything. There's nothing to prosecute. People shouldn't be thrown in jail just because they are saying obnoxious and despicable things. If saying awful things could be prosecuted, then GM and Amanda would be joining him in the slammer.

I don't like Spence, GM, Aryan or Amanda. They are all despicable individuals, but saying things doesn't equal jail... unless evidence is found. It wasn't.

Seems to me people are getting pretty rabid about everything. No, we don't have to like what's been said, but we should try not to go to extremes.



Anonymous said...

So Candice is a good cook. Shame on her for cooking for these racists and their partners in crime. I don't think the African American community will be too happy with her for taking all the BS. Both she and Howard should have demanded that BB stop the racist bullying and if it didn't stop they should have walked out. I initially felt bad for them but not any more.

I am mortified by Spencer's comments!!! It is NEVER anything to be joked about under any circumstances. I thought this cast was the lowest and ickiest ever, now it just got worse.
I am canceling my season pass on my DVR. CBS doesn't deserve any ratings at all for the cast they have given us.
My stomach turned when I heard this. No one can justify this as a joke. It is nothing to joke about!!!!!
Jackie, You are the best and it is sad that you are watching this group.
Unless he is removed from the house, I will not watch just on principal.

The fake outrage and hypersensitivity bothers me a lot more than a few fools on a TV show.

Sharon said...

Jimmy - Agreed. I've watched a whole lot of social pendulums wildly swing over the past 60 years.
oops... guess that gives a clue to my age! lol


Anonymous said...

Amanda can't match Spencer. I am glad there are others who find what he has said not only regarding porn, but other sexual and demeaning comments about women to be unacceptable. Its sad that this would be regarded as a joke.
I hope he gets kicked off the show.

Frankly, I am really only outraged about Spencer and that is certainly not fake. Everything else will be dealt with after the show is over. Maybe Evil Dick can help out.
