BBOTT: Season Premiere Blog Party
Okay, let's get this going! I'm not sure how well this is going to work. Normally, I have my nearby small television watching the show while I type on my computer. Now I've been experimenting with splitting my monitor screen. In tests, it's kind of okay. But I don't have the hugest monitor in the world. Let's see how this goes ...
Here's some information on the scheduling for the season:
Weekday Replay: A quick recap of all the crucial moments that happened throughout the day

And, here we go ... welp, there's Julie in a red dress. She's going through most os the stuff I have posted above. Gee, let's meet the houseguests! (Of course, I've already covered that in previous posts.) Intros still going on. This is going to be half the show!
Interesting. Alex tells us that if her sister Morgan walks through the door, it will ruin her game. Um, well, the Morgan intro is next up!
Finally, they're going to move in. one by one. The last one will be either Jason or (ick) Jozea.
Scott is in first, says hi to no one and us, then looks for a bedroom. Sp far, I'm seeing no thrills. Morgan is in next. Good. I'm tired of Scott looking around the house. They see the tips left behind by the BB18 Final Three, but have no clue which one won the season.
Now Shane has finally arrived. I'm not sure this is the best approach to the season.
They see 16 key slots but only thirteen place settings at the table.
This is SO how not to introduce the show! Is this what we miss on the real seasons? If so, I'm glad we miss it!
Now Neeley has arrived. If they keep up this rate, it will take them two hours to get them all in the house. Neeley lets them know she works at Nordstrom's. She can probably kiss that job goodbye.
Finally, another ... Shelby arrives. Another long wait and it's Cornbread.
If I were Scott, I'm not sure I'd be telling everybody I'm a debt collector. They've noticed there's no champagne.
An hour in and we only have six hamsters. Isn't this only supposed to be an hour "show"? Have the rest been abducted by aliens?
Finally another one enters. It's Kryssie.
After an eternity passes, the doorbell rings again. Whitney now.
Oh, please end this torture and let the rest all in at once! About the only positive thing I can say at this point is that they haven't blocked the feeds at all.
Another entry after a way too long wait. It's Justin.
Production voice, "Somebody say HOLLA."
There. There's our excitement in this slow torturous season premiere. I hope you didn't miss it.
The torture continues, then the doorbell rings again. It's Alex. She hugs Morgan like she doesn't know her.
"Attention Houseguests, the storage room is now available."
Maybe they have booze. I need some to keep this up. He makes the announcement many times in a row. They're ignoring him.
"YO, IDIOTS! GO TO THE STORAGE ROOM!" -- that was my announcement.
Finally, they check it out.
Monte arrives. JASON needs to be next.
Doorbell and it's .... Danielle. I forgot she wasn't there yet.
Torture us some more, BBOTT. You're trying to break us!
YAY! IT'S JASON BACK IN THE HOUSE!
But that doesn't redeem these two hours of torture at the moment.
