As the show airs, I'll be live updating the happenings right here -- refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come watch and talk about the show with us! And, but of course ... bring snacks and tasty beverages.
Here are the random picks for the blog pool as we head into this:
After tonight's eviction, this blog pool will be updated. The latecomers we caught climbing over the fences will be allowed in and the first evicted pool people will be reassigned. When the pool was formed, we didn't know who would be returning. The "newbies" added into the pool and first boot people will be divvied up among the veteran hamsters. Of course, if only three of them remain after tonight, some of the pool folks might be assigned to the hamsters with the fewest pool peeps. It's all random picks! For tonight's show, the pool is as stands above!
Ready to party?
Recap, recap ...
The Freakazoids -- Glenn, Nicole, Tiffany and Corey -- must compete against each other in tonight's third round comp. The loser will get evicted. The others will decide who's HoH. Nominations tonight.
Oh, geez. Tiffany is crying and Da'Vonne is trying to get her to spill that she's Vanessa's sister. And, so she does. Tiffany said she wouldn't be emotional. Huh.
Paul pushes Corey to go after the returning hamsters. Meanwhile, Corey isn't quite sure that's the best for his own game. Nicole is trying to work reverse psychology on Corey to convince him that they should decide to make her HoH (if she doesn't get the boot). It works.
The competition has them stranded on their own islands, climbing a tree, retrieving coconuts, pull themselves to complete their SOS.
NICOLE WINS! She's SAFE!
Vanessa, er ... Tiffany ... is looking almost identical to Vanessa in the Diary Room.
Tiffany is safe.
Corey and Glenn just about tied. Corey stays as he was judged first. Glenn goes home. The first eviction of the year.
Nicole convinced them that she would be HoH IF they really wanted it. It worked! Nicole is the HOH and Paul is ticked off. Heh. Paul lets Corey know that he's not happy. Poor Corey.
Paulie tells James and Nicole that he has a connection with them because of Cody and would like to work with them. The plot grows thicker.
As Nicole puts it, Victor just handed her a nominee on a silver platter by telling her first that all the newbies want the veterans out and that Jozea really wanted her out. Can we guess that Jozea will be nominated?
Heh. James is up to his pranking already.
The slop has arrived for Paul, Jozea, Zakiyah and Da'Vonne. The bedroom is bumper car beds, flashing lights and a carnival atmosphere. Now Jozea has done himself in with Da'Vonne by being boastful and calling himself the Messiah of the newbies.
The vets talk with Corey. Nicole wants Jozea out. To make sure he goes, she wants to put up someone who'd win the veto -- Paulie. But she has to make sure Paulie is okay with it.
Hmm ... sometimes the pawn goes home. Especially if he has a brother who already played the game. Hmm.
Nominations Ceremony -- Jozea and Paulie. Uh-oh. Not an easy decision, chose a strong player from each team.
Jozea is cocky; he claims that he rules the house.
PoV and a new surprise for Saturday.
Just a note: The live feeds go on at 1am for me here on the East Coast. My first live feeds report should be up early morning East Coast time. And, a blog pool update will also be posted. Come on back!
